Review: My Obsession by Cassie Ryan


In this story of temptation and total surrender for readers of Sylvia Day and J. Kenner, a powerful master gives his dream girl a new beginning in the dungeons of decadent ecstasy.

Running from a troubled past, Sandra Barry spent years hiding out in New York City’s BDSM scene, finding satisfaction and even a sense of community as a sub at a large dungeon. But when a stalker joins the dungeon posing as a Dom, he crosses her personal boundaries, giving her no choice but to return home to Arizona. Seeking refuge once again in the kink lifestyle, Sandra meets a sexy new Dom whose tutelage drives her wild—although there’s something familiar about him she just can’t place.

As a teenager, Brent Weston was a nerd. Now he owns the hottest dungeon in Phoenix, enjoying the power and success he’s always craved. All that’s missing is the right woman to share it with. Then one day Sandra, his secret high school crush, walks into his club. She’s just as beautiful as he remembers. She’s also scared as hell. Brent has been waiting for this moment, and now that Sandra’s in his sights, he’ll do anything to protect her, pleasure her—and prove that he’s the only master worthy of her devotion.

Cassie Ryan has always had a passion for romance and anything paranormal.  And even in school, was encouraged to put her writing skills to good use, but always with the admonishment to ‘stop writing the weird stuff and tone down the sarcasm.’  But what fun is that.  So, in 2003, she finally decided to try her hand at writing a novel, but still firmly embracing the ‘weird stuff and the sarcasm.’

Cassie has had several different series published under different names, including the popular Maiden series as Tina Gerow, the Seduction Series for Kensington’s Aphrodisia line as Cassie Ryan, The Sisters of Darkness series with Berkley, also as Cassie Ryan, and the Club Desire series with Random House Loveswept, still as Cassie Ryan.

An Arizona State University alumnus, Cassie belongs to the Romance Writers of America, and is a past president of the local Valley of the Sun Romance Writers Chapter and an active member of the local Desert Rose chapter.  She’s an active speaker on several subjects including promotions, character creation, goals & motivation, writing love scenes and more.  She has spoken at several RWA chapters as well as the Romantic Times Booklovers convention on the paranormal and erotic panels.

Cassie lives in Arizona with her husband Jon, her son Darian, feisty Maine Coon and an energetic black kitten.  When Cassie isn’t spending time with her family, she’s usually writing, or at some various and sundry writer’s conference, workshop or meeting.


As always first thanks go out to Random House Loveswept and Netgalley for providing us with a copy of this book so that we could bring you this review.

Ok shamwow panties are needed when reading this book. I won’t even ease into it for you all. Its seriously HOT… now you all know by now I am the resident BDSM reader in the group with Erin jumping in and reading a few darker ones here and there, which I will be sure to let her know she needs to read this one right away. The chemistry between Brent and Sandra is enough to melt the pages off my Kindle. They scene wonderfully and I love the fact that he shows her the proper way to have a D/s relationship. So many time the lifestyle is not portrayed the right way and things get lost from the most important thing which is Sane Safe and Consensual. Which is something that is shown in the book as well, with our resident evil character Diego. I will add that I kind of fell in love with Master Dex and Michelle and can’t wait to see what their stories will be. I also hope to see a story with Gary and Valerie. I completely enjoy that even though the main characters of this book are Sandra and Brent, the author also writes the secondary characters in a way that makes you want to get to know them more.

I give this book 5 HUGELY bound kisses (actually wish I could give it more than that)…

Happy Reading… Adri
