He was hired to protect her.
Watching gorgeous Gwen Hawthorne wasn’t a hard job—but it certainly was tempting. Chance Valentine had tried to keep his distance from the sexy socialite for years, but when her father hired him to keep watch on her—as a twenty-four, seven bodyguard—Chance knew his control was about to be pushed to the limit.
He’d never wanted another woman the way he desired her. Hot. Intense. Consuming. Being so close to Gwen, Chance knew that he wouldn’t be able to resist her. So he gave into his need, her need, and he took them both to the edge of a dark and consuming desire.
But Chance soon realizes that he isn’t the only one watching Gwen. Someone else is out there, a stalker who won’t rest until Gwen is destroyed. Every day, every moment…Gwen is in danger. And Chance knows that if he can’t unmask the stalker, then he may just lose the only woman he has ever loved.
Intense. The story is built with intense suspense, action, fear, feelings, obsessions, relationships... So many layers in the story, so many vivid, deep, energetic, dark feelings.
Chance and Gwen have loved each other for a long time, but is love enough, when you have a history of secrets, lies, and heartbreak? They have chemistry, they burn like a fire together, but is the fire just a hot flame, to be out soon, or will it last?
The stalker seems like an open and shut case, until things get out of control even more while the suspect in custody.
The story has so many aspects, the intensity building up to a new level towards the end. Nothing seems sure, not a thing is guaranteed. The images are heightened, the action is rough. This is the book 1 on the new series Dark Obsession, and that gives you an accurate picture of the book.
First time ever I could have given just a one word review, you guessed, intense.
Even so intense, that I had to walk away from it for a bit, because it started to seem like too much anxiety. But a great story, fantastic start to a new series, that I'll be sure to keep an eye for
