I bought this book on impulse, and I don’t regret it! Liz Bower has written a book that had me hooked and engrossed from the first chapter; I was so self-absorbed in the story that I read this book in one sitting. Liz has a way of pulling the reader in with fascinating characters and a captivating storyline. At first I thought this book was taking a rom-com kind of route, when suddenly Liz threw a spanner in the works that had me sat on the edge of my seat in shock and anticipation for what was to come.
This story keeps you on your toes guessing and although I felt I had worked out the intentions of one character I could never fully commit myself to their true intentions because Liz Bower had a way of throwing in a few curve balls that had you second guessing yourself.
Jo Waters, is funny, speaks her mind, isn’t ashamed to be herself and is great at her job. I loved that at times she acted on impulse and even with regrets she didn’t dwell on it too much.
Marco is irresistible without any doubt. He comes across cocky and self-assured, however a lot of it is an act and he is in fact a loving, caring man who is loyal to his friends and family.
If you love romantic suspense with humour and mystery you will love Obsession by Liz Bower.
Obsession is a fantastic, gripping standalone novel by Liz Bower! This book pulled me in and didn’t let me back out until the very end! This is definitely one of those books that will still have you thinking about it after you have finished it! It is a relatively short read, less than 200 pages, but it’s packed full of romance, suspense and plot twists that you will not see coming! I could not turn the pages quick enough because I was so hooked on it! I tried so hard to work out what was going to happen and just when I thought I had worked it out – another twist came along! The author did an amazing job of concealing what was going to happen until the end!!
The story is about Jo (Josephine) who has recently split from her cheating boyfriend and although she doesn’t want a relationship at the moment she can’t help but become slightly obsessed with her sexy new colleague Dan! When Jo defends Dan in a meeting she ends up in a whole lot of trouble and when confronted by her boss about her uncharacteristic behaviour she panics and lies. Unfortunately this lie sets off an unstoppable chain of events and she finds herself needing to find herself a fake boyfriend. Her best friend and roommate offers her a solution – her brother, Marco. Trouble is for Jo, Marco has been the bane of her life since high school plus he is annoying and far too full of himself! But Marco is the least of her worries when someone starts to make threats again her colleague and boss and Jo is the obvious suspect.
I actually thought that the story was very cleverly written because although from dual POV you didn’t actually know who the other person was until the end! When we were reading from the other person’s POV there were no clues as to who it was – I absolutely loved this!Read more ›
I loved this book from start to finish and if I could give it another couple of stars I would, the fact its set in England is a bonus for me. It’s well written, descriptive but not overloaded, I just found the writing style smooth.
The story centres around Jo Waters, a 24 year old independent woman working towards promotion at the travel agency in the north west of England. Single through choice after her cheating boyfriend left, and sharing a house with her BFF, Gaby, life is good.
When Dan joins the firm Jo is instantly attracted to him, along with every other woman in the office. When a big mistake is mad and Dan is wrongly blamed she defends him during a meeting and lands herself in big trouble with her boss who reminds her about the non-fraternisation clause in her contract, she panics and says she has a boyfriend. Next thing she knows she is invited to a meeting/dinner with important potential clients…..and bring your boyfriend. Gaby’s great idea is that her brother Marco pretends to be her boyfriend, Marco has been a thorn in her side since school, always teasing her and being a cocky so and so but hey, desperate times call for desperate measures. When Jo doesn’t get the promotion she worked hard for and the job is given to someone externally things take a sinister turn and threats are made towards her new colleague jo is the first suspect but then others are threatened, it’s clear it’s because of Jo but who could be doing it?
I would highly recommend this book and can see myself re reading it down the road and will be looking out for more from Liz Bower
