Obsession is the perfect name for this book, because you will be obsessed with Talon and Jade even more than before! Obsession picks up right where Craving left off, Jade is gone and Talon is left to deal with the consequences of his decision to have her leave.
Talon Steel has got to be the most exasperating, stubborn, haunting, broken characters I have ever read. We’re in the second book and I still can’t quite get a handle on him. Jade, I think, is the perfect balance for him. She’s patient, kind, loving, and just as stubborn as he is.
What I love about this book is that there’s almost 2 story lines going at once and we are slowly connecting the dots to figure out just how they are connected. We have the Talon/Jade love story on one layer, and on the underlying layer is the story of why Talon is the way he is, and the mystery surrounding the Steel family. The way that Helen blends these two is pure genius. She takes a love story and blends in a dark mystery that will have you wanting more. It’s almost like she blends two separate sub genres and makes this story that is simply amazing. Even the supporting characters seem to be playing a huge role in the story and these are characters you want to know more about.
I give Obsessed 5 obsessed kisses and I cannot wait for the next book to see how everything is tied together and if my theories are right!
