HASH(0x8f3e9a20) out of 5 stars Wouldn't it be nice to just know... He's The One? 3 July 2011
By P. Mason - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Wouldn't it be nice to dispense with the blind dates, the awkward first kiss, the tentative "I love you's?" and just zoom! Know right off the bat that He's The One?
And as a woman, to be the one in control, to claim your Lifemate in your own time?
This is the Crainesian race that Annie Rayburn has created. She turns the male dominant world of dating and mating on its head with her strong heroines who see the man they want, and have the brains - and the hearts - to win him.

When Teriza meets her Lifemate for the first time - and his human wife - their encounter is so charged with emotions and pheromones that her health is damaged. At a Swiss clinic specifically made for Crainesians unable to be with their true Lifemates, she meets Paul, another Crainesian who still mourns for his wife and Lifemate.
The two resist each other, and Ms.Rayburn masterfully extends the sexual tension throughout the book with Teriza's dry wit and Paul's increasing increase, tempered with self doubt and questioning if he's good enough for her.
Refreshing for a contemporary erotic romance.
The sex in Bittersweet Obsessions is explicit and it's hot; the plot is complicated; the heartache is lingering; the commitments are tender and intimate and romantic.

HASH(0x8eb13cc0) out of 5 stars Bittersweet Obsessions is a hot, emotional read! 12 Aug. 2011
By n22v - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I loved it! I was hooked from the first emotionally and erotically charged scene until the last page. Annie Rayburn has created a unique and fascinating culture and paranormal race with her Crainesians. I love the way she showed the intense chemistry that is part of her characters' biological makeup and I loved watching the characters move beyond that and achieve an even more intense emotional connection. The ending is especially moving and a fantastic payoff for both the characters and the reader. A must read! I can't wait for her next story and I hope it's about Klaus!

HASH(0x8f50ce70) out of 5 stars Share a special connection 5 Aug. 2011

If you enjoy reading about intelligent, hunky men and smart, beautiful women who are searching for "the one" with a twist of a unknown culture thrown in for good measure, Bittersweet Obsessions is the summer read for you. The tension between Teriza and Paul climbs higher and higher always making the reader wonder if they will get together. Teriza and Paul are a couple you can't help but root for, they deserve a happily ever after, but is that really possible?

Annie Rayburn, in her debut novel for Red Sage, has hit a homerun. Pull out the Kindle and load this one up. It's not to be missed.

HASH(0x8e8f3720) out of 5 stars Soul-mate to heated Love 18 Aug. 2011
By Vanetta Quintana - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This was my first Paranormal Romance book I read, and I guess since that was the case I was a little confused in the beginning but then I got right into the story.

I loved the soul-mate attraction. I loved the chemistry.

If you are a paranormal reader this is one you shouldn't miss! If you never read one or just touching into this genre this is one to start with!

This is a great Debut for Annie Rayburn! I look forward in reading more of her work.

Note: my "reviews" don't tell the story because I hate spoilers!

HASH(0x8f6152b8) out of 5 stars This is an awesome story! 22 Aug. 2011
By TamiBrothers - Published on Amazon.com

The worst thing that could happen to a Crainesian has happened. When Teriza Farrington decides to update the grounds of her grandmother's estate, she never expected to meet her life mate. Or his human wife.

After living with the results of her stepfather's infidelity, there is no way she would be the cause of divorce for someone else. Even if it does mean she is giving up her only chance at happiness. When the physical effects of ignoring the bond between life mates has Teriza close to death, she agrees to a sexual surrogate. Even though the man assigned to take care of her needs is everything she could ever dream of in a sexual partner, it is his friend who ignites a flame in Teriza's body and soul.

Paul Craddock took a job at the clinic in Switzerland as a way to quench the sexual hunger that ensures even after the death of his life mate. He never expected to find someone who might fill the emptiness in his heart. Now that he's found Teriza, he doesn't want to let her go. But it's going to take a lot to convince the hardheaded Crainesian woman that even if they aren't officially life mates, they can still find happiness with each other.

Bittersweet Obsessions is an awesome story! I wasn't sure how Annie Rayburn was going to pull this one off, but she did an amazing job. I LOVED Teriza and Paul's love story and I LOVED Deacon and Sallie's. As much as I hated the idea of the two life mates not being together, Ms. Rayburn left me feeling that this was the ONLY way this story could have played out. The introduction of the Swiss clinic was quite entertaining and gave the Crainesian world a depth that just reading about the various couples and their stories never could have conveyed. The necessity of the clinic brought to light the seriousness of ignoring the life mate call and just how dangerous the pheromone release could be if not addressed. I finished the book completely satisfied that both Teriza and Deacon's separate lives would work out. The only thing I need to know now is if Klause will get his own book and find his Happily Ever After? I sure hope so.
