This book reminded me why I love Nora Roberts. And although I haven’t picked up a Nora Roberts book in a long time, I still count her as one of the greats who really fed on my romance addiction. From the engaging plot to the cast of complex and layered characters, The Obsession grabbed my attention from the very first page. And when I say first page, I mean that literally. Holy freakin’ prologue is what it was. It was creepy and scary and had this sinister feel that really put the readers right into the middle of the action.

To be honest, I’ve never even remotely thought of her as anything but the I-Team’s flighty, shallow, blonde friend. Boy, was I wrong. Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. What frustrates me most of the time with romantic suspense is that there seems to be just two types of female characters. One is the utterly badass and is devoid of anything typically feminine.

Leah Raeder will be releasing her second novel this coming April 28th 2015. It’s called Black Iris and the cover is gorgeous! Understated. Elegant. Mysterious. I am personally loving this cover. It fits with the dark themes of this book, which is according to her publisher, “a dark, sexy, romantic suspense”. It feels so ‘noir’ to me. Speaking of themes, Black Iris is about Laney Keating…
