Product description

Product Description

**NOTE: This book contains dark themes, including violence of a sexual and physical nature that could trigger emotional distress in readers.**

“I cry for the man I used to know, the man I used to love…until his love killed mine.”

My name is Haley Macknight, and I’m dying inside. From the outside my life is every woman’s dream. I’m married to Jude Macknight, a sexy multimillionaire who loves me…too much.

Once upon a time, I loved him. But that love is dead. Unwilling to let me go, I’ve become his obsession. His heart is dark and damaged, and he will stop at nothing to make sure I remain in a marriage I no longer want, inside my gilded cage.

Each day I pull away from Jude, I watch him transform into a monster. Before my eyes, he becomes a man I don’t recognize, a dangerous man. He makes it clear that I belong to him, that my life is no longer my own. If I leave, he’ll kill me. But if I stay, I’ll die a slow death.

OMG!!! There are no words that can describe how excellent Veiled Obsession - His Agenda Book 1 is. I patiently waited for this book from Dori Lavelle, as I'm a big fan of hers. Let me tell you, I was not disappointed; in fact, this was one of her best books that she has written as of this date.

This book is a romantic suspense thriller and a thriller it is (dark, twisted and yes a cliffhanger). In the opening we meet the main characters - Haley, beautiful and scared and Jude, dark, mysterious and downright evil.
After saving Haley from a difficult situation, she falls for Jude; however things are not what they seem as Jude changes overnight or was he always evil.

Dori takes the reader on a dark and twisted journey leaving you breathless and wondering what the Hell....

Dori writes with such emotion that the reader is inside the characters head and emotions.
Then, you are introduced to another character - Dustin, multibillionaire in his own right and on a mission to see if Haley is okay. I have a hunch; he will play an important part in Haley's life in the coming books.

I can't wait to read Dori's next book in this series and I would 1-click this one as it is a must read. I would give it a 10 if I could because the writing and the book is awesome.

I would highly recommend this book to the over 18 yr + crowd, who enjoys suspense, twists and turns, thriller and romance.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Not a favourite read. I found the descriptions and wording a tad crude. The storyline is predictable, so much so that I won't bother reading the next books in this series of His Agenda.

Story and character development too thin for a whole novel - maybe a longish short story?

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Dark Romance! 29 May 2015
By autumnleavves - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book has left me in awe...
I haven't read such a well written "Dark Romance" in a very long time - The author begins the book with a huge "what in the world"... KEEP READING!!!!!

Dori Lavelle promised a gruesome romance and followed through with a flowing, nearly flawless story.
I devoured this book in 1 day, that's how glued I was. I'm actually waiting not-so-patiently for the next book...the good news is, she isn't making us wait long!

Thank You Ms. Lavelle for an Outstanding Must Read!!

*note - author CLEARLY states that this book has many issues that some may not feel comfortable with, if that's the case then it's up to you whether or not to read it. She doesn't deserve bad reviews bc of it. There's a difference. (and no, I did not write this little extra for the author)

5.0 out of 5 stars A dark romance with a twist...what a chance for Dori. A wonderful read 25 May 2015
By Cyn - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I think I am still in shock I know Dori said we would be seeing her dark side but no way did I think when I picked up this book it would be this intense. I do have to warn whoever decides to read this there is a lot of graphic rape, and extreme abuse, etc if this a problem for you than this is not the book for you. I know I was not prepared when I pick this book up to read. Dori is a very talent author each of her series brings out a different side of her. Her writing style as changed and grown from her first book. I have loved each of her books and follow her closely. This new series is such a shock to me I set reading with my mouth hung open thinking OMG. I was so into it that before I knew it I had finish the book and it was 2 am. This serial unfolds over three volumes there is somewhat of a cliffhanger. It does end on a happy thought but I do have to wonder where the author will take this over the next 2 books.

Dori gives you many twists and turns with all the dark side out there I do find this believable however I am so glad I am not Haley. When your abuser closes you off from the rest of the world you become depended on them as Haley did. It is easy for them to control you in all things there is no easy way to leave when you have no money, friends and nowhere to go. I could relate to Haley there are so many women just like her out there. I am really hoping that their life isn’t this intense and they do not live through what she did.

Jude I adored him when he came on the scene it didn’t take long for me to hate him. I could relate to him since I have seen men just like him. They are all sweet until you say I do than over night they chance into an abusive male. For Jude it was when she innocently touch the hand of another male from there he just got out of hand. Be prepared for some major shocks as the story unfolds. I have to wonder if a man can get more evil than he already is. Knowing Dori I would have to say yes….

I thought it was great when Haley finally said enough and walked out until the author gave another twist to the story. As you read this when you think things can’t get worse they will, you will set with your mouth hung open more than once. Everywhere Haley turns she finds the cards are stacked against her. Her one bright lining turns out to be her worse nightmare. When Dustin comes on the scene we have to wonder if he will be the true bright light or will it end with another nightmare.

The author does have you hooked in a very short time. I did find the start of the book to be outstanding with some confusion right after that as to what Haley did that she needed to hide out. By the end of the first book you find out the answer but I have to wonder if she really did it or was this just away for Jude to control her. The author doesn’t go into details at this time but I feel sure as the next books comes out she will get more into the how and why. I do feel this is an outstanding read from a very dark side. I do have to say I am still in shock that Dori has these scenes running around in her head. Not to say that is a bad thing I am just still in so much shock. Her word flow is easy as she gives you a story you won’t be able to put down. She hooks you from the first line until the last. It will be interesting to see where she takes this and just who twisted her little mind really is.

For me this was a great read with that said I did have an issue with the confusion at the beginning which made me feel lost but Dori pulled it all together which made this a shocking good read. I will have to say the intense rapes and abuse hit a nerve. I think if I was Haley I would have gladly killed him and went to jail. You have been warned of the content so be prepared do not pick this book up if you can’t handle over the board (I do mean major overboard) rapes and abuse.

5.0 out of 5 stars Soooooooo incredibly deliciously out there!!! What an awesome ride inside of dysfunction at its best! 22 June 2015

Veiled obsession

This book deserves 5+ stars simply because it proves an awesome book can be written with nonexistent detailed sex scenes! Kudos Dori for managing to successfully nail that feat!

This story is what movies are made of seriously! The storyline is so awesome, the emotions of Haley are so real one can simply touch their device and FEEL her pain, and Jude is...well Jude is cray cray but on some level I was rooting for him in the beginning believe it or not. Ok so allow me to defend that statement....I'm a sucker for a rich alpha man who goes after his woman and obtains that woman by ALMOST any means necessary. I was cool with his tactics until he lost his marbles! And boy did he lose'em! I was so done with Jude the crazy dude by the end of this first book I could hardly stand it!

Surely there is some redemption in book 2 (preordered of course) for the underdogs, Haley and Dustin. Who is Dustin? Buy and read the book! I promise you won't regret it!

This book is so far out of the spectrum of what I usually read but I am so pumped I devoured this delicious story! 5+ stores for this phenomenal read!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nail-biter you will not want to put down! 5 August 2015
By Gloria Herrera for As You Wish Reviews - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Talk about a nail-biter! I could not put this book down. I just needed to know Haley was going to be alright.

It is difficult to write a review about this book without giving away too much. Yes, Haley marries a man she meets and he appears to be her savior. He gets her out of a scrape and is so supportive and caring she cannot help but be grateful. This man is not what he appears to be. After they marry, things change and what he puts her through, not many people would survive.

It is a mystery. It has suspense. It has thrilling moments where the excitement of hoping she can get away will have you soaring. There are moments when your spirit will be at its lowest being a silent participant to the horrors she faces.

The second book is about to go live, so you will not have to wait to find out what happens next. Believe me... this story will haunt you! Dori Lavelle you rocked this storyline!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not for me 20 October 2015
By June Frances - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
First of all thank you to the author for posting the warnings re the context of her book. She is right on the money there is a
tremendous amount of graphic and violent sex but that is not why I did not like it. Throughout much of the book there is this
feeling of total despair and hopelessness linked with really horrid sex over and over again until you get to the point of "All
right already I get the picture!" And while I realize Hayley is desperate in her escape attempt surely she should have
thought her plan better then to return to the town from which she was picked up from. When Dustin mysteriously shows
up to visit her evil knight (wow what a coincidence!) she makes an amazing escape in the back of his car-serioiusly?
After reading it I was really depressed mostly from the violence and treatment of Hayley but also the use of non stop
sex with little regard for the reader or Hayley.
