The love story between Talon and Jade continues in Obsession.
Jade Roberts is in love with Talon Steel but no longer welcome in his home. While she resolves to move on, she still longs for the passion she and Talon shared…and when her boss asks her to dig up information on the Steels, she’s only too happy to comply. Talon and his brothers are hiding something, and Jade is determined to find out what it is.
The moment Talon saw Jade he wanted her, ached for her, craved her…and now his desire has become his obsession. He knows she deserves better than his broken soul, but he can’t stay away from her, and he finally confesses his love. If he and Jade are to have a future, he knows he must make peace with the dark shadows and horrors of his past.
But as Talon begins his journey of healing, Jade uncovers some startling secrets…
NOTE: This book is not a standalone. You have to read the first book in the series (Craving) prior to reading this one as it is the continuation of Jade and Talon’s story.
This series is amazing. Helen Hardt really knows how to bring out the darkness and pain that reside in the character’s life which allows readers to become invested and emotionally involved in the story. Now, as I said in my note, this book is the continuation and Talon and Jade’s love story. Their love story, while it has its sweet pieces, is ultimately dark and tragic because Talon is unable to get over what happened to him when he was 10 years old (you’ll know all about this if you have read CRAVING). But we do get to see a lot of character growth in this novel when it comes to Talon, which makes him all the more relatable and lovable for all readers. We also get more of a backstory in terms of Talon’s tragic past, and get a little glimpse of who these monsters that kidnapped him are. All of this put together makes for a very strong book that will leave readers not only haunted, but extremely satisfied. OH… And when you read the ending?!?! HOLY COW. A major plot twist. Yikes! If you haven’t read this series, I strongly suggest picking it up. The books are pretty fast paced (I read both in just a few hours) and the story sucks you in from the get go. I honestly cannot wait until the final book in Talon and Jade’s series comes out next month. I simply NEED to know what is happening! Oh, yes… It does end in a cliffhanger too…
This is only the second book that I have had the pleasure of reading by Helen Hardt and I have to say I am quickly becoming a huge fan of her work. Her writing style is on point- there has never been any confusion as to which characters are giving us their POV’s- she weaves a tragic yet beautiful storyline that immediately hooks all readers- and she uses vivid descriptions about the past and present. All of this put together makes for a fantastic story and I think all readers should give her work a try!
