Obsession #BookReview

If you follow my Facebook page, you probably saw me talk about Shantel Tessier's new release "Obsession". Well, in case you missed it, I read and LOVED the book. So, I decided to write a quick post, letting you all know, that you should read it!! 

It is the second book in a series, but can easily be read as a stand-alone novel. That being said, I loved it so much, I immediately read the first book "Addiction". So, if you wanted to, you could easily read them both in order. I highly recommend them both. 

So, how it all began... I noticed a post on Facebook about the impending release, and it caught my eye. So, of course I investigated. I added it to my to read list, and moved on. As luck would have it, I got the opportunity to sign up to request an ARC, and was chosen. I was a smidgen nervous, because I am an honest person. So, I said a prayer that I'd like the book, and dove in. 

I not only liked it, but I loved it. The characters totally won me over, not just the main characters (Skye and Brecken), but all the characters. I was excited to learn, a future book will be released, to tell me the story of one of my other favorite characters. I was overjoyed to know I had the first book to read, to learn about Case and Taylor, whom I'd fallen in love with. That's one way I knew I was reading a fantastic book. The characters were so well developed, you found yourself drawn to the secondary characters, who barely got page time. 

I don't want to give away the plot. I really want you guys to read it, and enjoy the journey, just as I did. I do want to give my thoughts though. It is a well written book. As I said, the characters are well developed. The plot is interesting, intriguing, entertaining, and well written. It's a romance, but not a typical, overly sexual romance. Yes, there is hot, steamy sex, but it doesn't overpower the plot. It's more of an enhancement. I often find that romance novels include plenty of sex, and not enough storyline. That definitely isn't the case with this book. 

The storyline itself is wonderful. It takes you on an interesting journey, full of twists and turns. It will make you feel a full gamut of emotions. It will entertain, confuse, frustrate, excite, upset, and tease you. It is a lovely journey. Some of it will be anticipated, and other parts will come as a shock. I was blindsided by a few plot details, and others I had expected. It's not a shallow romance novel, but not so deep you cannot enjoy it. 

It was a book I found myself not wanting to put down. I wanted to know what happened next. I also felt sad when it was over. It was a complete story. You will feel complete closure, and satisfaction. It's just that I was so entertained, and had become invested to the point, I wanted more. I'm secretly hoping for a short story accompaniment or a full part two, in the future. I was comforted, by the fact I had book 1 "Addiction" to read, and knowing book 3 will be coming. 

If you've been paying attention to my Facebook page, you have probably figured out that I LOVE author K.S. Thomas, and I'm constantly searching for another author with books I can enjoy, just as much as her books. Well, I've finally found it. Yes, I enjoy other books I read, just not on this deep of a level. The best way I can think to explain it... I love the writing so much, I want to read everything she has written. The writing is just that good. 

I hope you read the books. If you do, please let me know. I would LOVE to discuss them with you. 

Here is some information for you:

Touched for the Very First Time March 2017 #UseYourWords

Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked four to six words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That is the challenge, here is a fun twist; no one who is participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.

My words are: Tetris ~ Rollerblades ~ Big Hair ~ Rubik’s Cube~ Like A Virgin ~ Neon They were submitted by: Tamara of Confessions of a part-time working mom(Thank you for the awesome words, Tamara. I kinda hate you though. I had two solid plans for this month's words (I NEVER have plans, and this month I had TWO plans), and neither could be applied to these words, so I had to strugggggllllleeeeee..... It's okay, after reconsidering our friendship, I decided I still love you!)
So, I read this month's words, and I immediately transported back t…

The Game of Life Jan 2017 #SecretSubjectSwap

Welcome to a the first Secret Subject Swap of 2017. This week twelve brave bloggers submitted a secret subject for someone else to use, and were assigned a secret subject prompt of their own. Each blogger gets to use their Secret Subject prompt, to write any blog of their choice. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.

My “Secret Subject” is: Video games give a chance to escape sort of like reading a book or watching a movie but you, the player, is in control of the story or the actions needed to complete it. As technology advances so have games giving people vast open worlds to play in and characters who are more and more customizability. If you could turn any book, TV show, or movie world into a game what would it be? Lead us on an exploration of what it might be like playing this game (feel free to make up your own world if books, TV, or movies fail to give you a suitable choice).

Best Served Cold #SecretSubjectSwap

Welcome to June's Secret Subject Swap. This week eleven brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.

My “Secret Subject” is: Tell us a revenge story, truth or fiction. It was submitted by: Jenniy of (Thank you for such an awesome topic!!)

Revenge is a dish best served cold. That is how it goes, right? They also say revenge is sweet. Cold and sweet. Sounds like sorbet or ice cream. Sounds yummy and sticky. When I read this prompt, I immediately thought of one story. It is really all I ever think of, when I think of revenge. 

This really isn't my story to tell, but I know my friend won't mind me telling y'all, because I have asked permission many times over the years, and she always tells me I can. The she I am talking about, is my friend Opie. She is this amazing woman, who is one of m…
