His Obsession by Sam Crescent
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
OK, Cadeon was my kind of hero but we have to move on to another hero, right? And heroes are all different in their own kind of way.
Stephen Knox is a wealthy man, owner of Possession and friend with our "Owners" and has all that he wants, but still one thing is missing ... the flare of ownership that his friends have and the lady that goes along with it.
When he takes on his housekeeper Ursula Mills, he begins to feel what he doesn't know and when she finds herself in danger living in an abused relationship, Stephen jumps to the rescue and takes them down into a world of ... Obsession.
Stephen seemed to me to be the kind of man that liked to be challenged, pushed, so he could fight back, punish at his own will and pleasure.
For this man a submissive wouldn't do the trick but a woman that shows flare and fire, but at the same time, knows how to take orders and stand back and be protected when he tells her to.
This is easier said than done in Ursula's case.
Their dance of seduction was almost my favorite part, better than the physical outcome of it ...
"Don’t move" he said. She stopped, staring into his dark brown eyes. He held her captive in his gaze. The tension between them mounted with every passing second. They kept their gazes on each other for ages."
Ursula Mills was a character like many woman in this life.
At first everything is roses and then the wolf comes knocking on the door, I think that sometimes we see in a man what we want and not who he is, and that is exactly what happened here.
What we don't get is a "Stephen" knocking on our door everyday and this lucky girl knew how to move on , upwards and not the other way around.
I also related to her in the fact that she doesn't bow down to Stephen and makes room for her personal and professional pleasure.
Over all M. Crescent made a good job of this book and I so like her writing style:
"When we’re here, you’re no one else’s.” The words confused her.
“Whose am I?” she asked.
So, now for the next Owner, and this time it's James turn.
