Product Description

When love becomes an obsession how far would you go to protect the ones you love?

Jo Waters finally has her life back on track. Since her boyfriend cheated on her romantic entanglements aren’t on her priority list. That doesn’t mean she can’t look. Right? Especially when it comes to her sexy new colleague Dan.

But when Dan becomes the scapegoat for something he isn’t responsible for, she ends up in a whole lot of trouble trying to defend him. When confronted by her boss about her uncharacteristic behaviour, Jo panics, and lies. Unfortunately, it's a lie that sets off an unstoppable chain of events including the need to find a man she can pass off as her boyfriend. And it is the most unlikely of men who her best friend offers as a solution - her brother, Marco. Which would be fine except Marco is annoying and far too full of himself, and has been the bane of her life since high school.

But when her life gets thrown off track again, it turns out that Marco is the least of her problems. Someone is making violent threats towards those close to her. And to make matters worse Jo's boss thinks she is the obvious suspect.

As the threats become increasingly more disturbing and widespread, just how far will Jo have to go to protect the one she loves?

“There is a fine line between love and madness……… Obsession.”

Obsession is a wonderfully gripping standalone by Liz Bower. I read the blurb of this book and was immediately drawn to it. I HAD to read it! When I opened up to the first page, I took a deep breath and hoped that it was going to be every bit as good as I thought it would be. I dove right in and got swept along on an incredible journey, as Ms Bower skilfully wove her suspenseful tale. She didn’t let me down, this book is even better than the blurb had led me to believe. Slightly dark and intense in places, the story had me completely absorbed by it, right till the end.
Josephine Waters (Jo) works for Danver Solutions- one of the leading software providers for holiday companies in the Northwest of England. She loves her job and is happy that her life seems to be finally moving in a positive direction again; after hitting a few snags due to splitting up with her boyfriend- when she caught him cheating on her. Jo really has no interest in pursuing a new relationship, but can’t help appreciating the sexy new guy at her workplace.
When Mr. Sexy gets blamed for something he didn’t do, Jo jumps to his defense, which ends with her in the boss’s office being reprimanded. The behaviour is so out of character for her, so her boss asks for an explanation- Jo is completely caught off guard and ends up concocting a huge lie.
This lie is where the story gets intriguing and the beginning of an interesting chain of events- the first of which requires her to find someone she can pass off as her boyfriend. After discussing it with her friend, a suitable candidate is suggested and he happens to be her best friend Gabi’s brother, Marco.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh my... 26 January 2017
By jazmine cabrera - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Obsession by Liz Bower is a fantastic read. It grabbed hold of me from the beginning and didn’t let me go until the end. This is definitely one of those books that will have you thinking about it after you have finished it. Yes, it’s that good!! It is a relatively short read, less than 200 pages, but it’s packed full of romance, suspense and awesome plot twists. You don’t see them coming. I don’t think I could have turned the pages any faster while reading it, I was sucked in bad. I tried so hard to process and figure out what was going to happen and just when I thought I had figured it out–BAM! Another twist came along! The author did an amazing job of hiding what was going to happen until the end!!

The story is about Jo (Josephine) who has recently split from her cheating boyfriend and even though she doesn’t want a relationship at the moment, she can’t help but become slightly obsessed with her new colleague, Dan. She knows professional and personal lives must be kept apart but she can’t help it. When Jo defends Dan in a meeting, she ends up in a whole lot of trouble and when confronted by her boss about her uncharacteristic behavior she panics and lies by saying she has a boyfriend. Unfortunately this lie sets off a continuous chain of events, and she finds herself needing get herself a fake boyfriend. Her best friend and roommate, Gabi, offers her a solution. That is, her brother, Marco. He may be annoying at times, but what the heck. She needs to secure her job and possible promotion. Marco means trouble for Jo. Marco has been a “pain in the rear” since high school plus he is annoying and far too full of himself! He’s cocky and conceited at times. Soon Marco is the least of her worries when someone starts to make threats against her colleague and boss, and Jo is the only obvious suspect.
Written in a dual point of view, you don’t really get an idea of who the other person is until the end. When reading from that other character’s view, you don’t get those feelings or ideas of who it could be.
That made me want to keep reading on so I could find out just who it was! I changed my mind so many times about who this other character was throughout the story.
I don’t think there is a review great enough for this story. It was greatly written, I can’t wait to see what’s to come.
5 stars!
5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this book!!!! 25 January 2017

A 5 star read for Obsession by Liz Bower. This book was filled with romance, mystery and suspense. I absolutely loved this book.

Jo lives with her best friend Gabi and is working at a job that she loves. She is extremely attracted to her coworker Dan, but then again, every other female in the office is also. When she sticks up for Dan, during a meeting, her boss reminds her that there is an on fraternization policy. To cover her own hide, she tells him she understands and that she is very happy with her boyfriend. Now to find a “fake” boyfriend in time for a client dinner meeting with her boss. When she gets home, Gabi is there with her brother Marco. When she tells her about needing a boyfriend, Gabi volunteers Marco for the job. When the night of the fake date with her boss comes around, she starts seeing Marco in a different light, she always knew that he was good looking, but he acts like he actually cares. The more time they spend together the stronger the attraction towards each other is. So they decide to give this fake relationship a real shot.
There is one MAJOR problem, someone else has different ideas……..
Someone has a obsession with Jo. When threatening letters and packages start showing up to not only her boss, but then Marco receives one also. She knows what she has to do in order to keep everyone safe. Breaking it off with Marco was one of the hardest things she had to do. When the person makes themselves known to Jo, she is shocked!!!! Will she make it out unscathed and back into the arms of the man she loves? Or is this the end??? You will definitely want to read this book and find out. Once I started this book, I could not put it down!!!

Obsession by Liz Bower
4 Stars

Obsession was the first book I've read by Liz Bowers but it won't be my last. This book had a little of everything. Told in mostly first person POV of main character Jo, but a couple times we see inside the bad guys head. The story was very well written and loved the way things were described in detail but wasn't over done.
Jo Waters works in an office and she has a slight crush on a new coworker, Dan. We meet her in a meeting where she's speaking up for Dan, who's being blamed for the setbacks, which is out of character for her as she's the quiet type. Jo finally feels as though her life is back on track and things are looking up for her future in life and work. When she is reminded by her boss of the no fraternization policy, she realizes her lusting over Dan didn't go unnoticed like she thought, she quickly lies about having a boyfriend. Jo lives with her best friend Gabi and when she tells of her lie and a dinner invitation that has to do with her application for promotion, Gabi has the perfect solution her brother Marco. While thinking over having a fake date with Marco she starts to realise she may have feelings for Marco but she feels guilty as she doesn't want to cause any upset if things go south. When threats start to come in potentially framing Jo and causing her boss and Marco to be cautious she takes matters into her own hands. Will she be making the right decision? Who is behind the threats? Why are they doing this?
This story had love, suspense, drama and a little heartache but it was all needed for this story. Great read and I can't wait to dive into more from this author.
5.0 out of 5 stars This is definitely one of the authors to watch this year!! 25 January 2017
By Heather B - Published on Amazon.com
Hands down, I loved this book - Obsession, by Liz Bower, which is a romantic suspense. This book will have you guessing until the end – as the synopsis/blurb tells you for this book, there’s a fine line between love and madness. This story focuses on Jo Waters – she defends a co-worker and shortly thereafter everything begins to spin out of control. First she claims she has a boyfriend and needs a guy to assist – her best friends suggest her brother, Marco. Next threats begin to occur to those around her and they grow more and more disturbing as they progress.

As you read this book, the author leaves you guessing on who could possibly be setting these threats in place and just how far they will ultimately go to reach their end game – whatever that may be. Liz Bower does a fantastic job setting the stage for this suspenseful story from Jo, to her best friend and the brother (Marco) to Jo’s cast of co-workers. Some of the banter and thoughts through parts of the story add realistic characteristics to each of the characters.

The flow is well paced and has you gripping the edge of your seat seriously wondering what could possibly occur next and then once we come to the climatic end, you seriously did not see it coming. The author has finesse in how the story is finished and it is a remarkably well written story. This is definitely one of the authors to watch this year!!
4.0 out of 5 stars Who is the culprit. Will they find out before it's to late 25 January 2017

Jo Waters is currently working for Danver Solutions. She is hoping to get promoted. During a meeting people are blaming a new hire Dan for them not meeting a deadline. Jo exploded in the meeting. Calling out the woman who flirts with everyone and wears clothes showing off her assets. The boss Alex Danver then asked Jo in a private meeting why she is defending Dan and feels so strong about it. He also reminded Jo of the Non-fraternization policy. Jo then lied and told her boss Alex that she had a boyfriend. And that's how the book starts.

Jo did not have a boyfriend however, Marco ( her best friends brother ) acted as her boy friend to a number of business dinners.

Someone in the office starts to threaten Alex, thinking him and Jo were having an affair, then another coworker who got the job that Jo wanted and then even threatens Marco. Jo has no idea who it could be. She thinks it could be Toby who seems to always be lurking around her desk. Then she looks at Dan who she is seriously crushing on and he never likes to make eye contact. He always has a frown on his face.
The cops end up being involved when a child is threatened.

After Marco and Jo start to get close. Much closer then they have ever been, Jo decides to distance herself from those she loves. Mainly Marco and his sister. She even goes back to work and that's when the person sending threats steps up their game.
