Bittersweet Obsessions Kindle Edition
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
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.
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.
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!
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.
