3.0 out of 5 stars Full of potential! 1 October 2015
By LeanneC - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
First things first, don't let my review put you off!!
I did actually find the majority of the story line page turningly good. There's drama, passion, anticipation the odd of bit comedy....all the things you like to see in a good romance mystery thriller type.
Characterisation is spot on. We get to see all their little traits and everyone is an individual in their own rights. Often times one character or another kind of gets left in the background, but not in this book.
The first few chapters and the last couple really had me gripped. I actually very nearly threw my tablet across the room right at the beginning of the epilogue! I just wasn't sure I could handle the pressure of turning the page to see what had happened!
My biggest problem with this book is in the writing style and editing. I found the structure very rhythmical. Some parts were like reading an instruction manual, other parts were worded the way I'd expect new readers books to be. Blake sat on the bed. Blake lifted my leg up. He unzipped one boot and took it off. He swapped legs and took off the other boot...Sorry...not conducive to steamy sex scenes if you ask me!!!
There are also a few head shaking typo errors and a lot of repetition within sentences. I think there might also be a spot of inconsistency in there too, regarding some mail between Kylie and Ana.
I also can't help but feel the author has set up her next couple of books way too easily!! There will be not great surprises in figuring out who they involve.
All in all, for a debut it's a good effort. Ms. Stookes shows a lot of potential and purely because I love Sawyer, I will be reading book 2 in this, in fact!

4.0 out of 5 stars Steamy and suspenseful 10 September 2015
By Honolulubelle - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Favorite Quotes:

“His apartment is a revolving door of dumb bimbos.”

“You’re thinking so loud it woke me up, Lee.”

My Review:

I have a new BBF, swoon! Blake is precious, sweet, kind, protective, and multi-talented. Of course he could only be found in a book… Ms. Stookes has made a strong debut with her initial offering of a steamy and suspenseful mystery. She had intriguing twists and turns that I did not see coming, the humorous character interactions and teasing that I enjoy, and likable characters with interesting traits and quirks. I am eager to see what she has planned for her characters in the next book of the series Ultimate Deception.

5.0 out of 5 stars You can go home again 26 September 2015
By Melody Grabeel - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Recovering from a life altering even, Kylie Delaney moves back to her home town. The town she left as soon as she could and the same place that held so many memories both good and bad.
Blake Winters has moved back to his hometown is now a detective on the police force after working for the Austin PD. He wanted a change and never imagined it would come if the form of the girl he loved 10 years ago.
The characters are well developed as is the writing. The plot has a few twists and is fast paced. It hooked me from the beginning. I look forward to reading more from this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great series, can't wait for book 2! 8 December 2014
By Amanda C - Published on
Love this book! I am picky about my mystery/romance novels and this is the best of both worlds. The character development is amazing and I really connected with the story. This is one of those books that you miss the characters when the book is over, and you are sad it ended. Very polished story, it's hard to believe this is Lynn Stookes's debut novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Engaging and Suspenseful Debut Novel 12 December 2014
By Courts422 - Published on
Fatal Obsession is the debut novel of author Lynn Stookes. Surprisingly, I really enjoyed reading this book because romantic suspense is not my go-to genre. In many of the romantic suspense books I have read, the characters and romance are lacking, while the story is very predictable. This book contains strong primary and secondary characters, steamy romance, and the story kept me guessing until the last few chapters.

I can’t say too much about the plot because major events happen in the first few chapters and I don’t want to spoil the reaction for any reader. Overall, I really enjoyed getting to know Kylie and Blake. My favorite portions of the book were the interactions between Dani and Sawyer. I can’t wait to see what Lynn has in store for them in future books.

1st book in the Harden series, but there is not a cliffhanger for the main characters. Future Harden books will focus on other characters.

I received an eARC from the author in exchange for a honest review.
