Rich, sexy and volatile, Sloane Michaels has a dark agenda that keeps his heart on ice. His extreme wealth gives him the control he craves and his skills as an ex UFC fighter the tools he’ll need to extract his ultimate revenge. But when the woman he never believed he’d see again crosses his path, Sloane is caught between the vengeance he needs and a sexual conquest he craves.

Kat Thayne has been in survival mode for six years, hiding behind the sweet creations for her bakery. But when a random carjacking brings her face-to-face with her darkest fears and hottest fantasy, Kat is forced out of hiding and offered a dangerously passionate proposition. One she knows she isn’t strong enough to refuse.

**Please note: Possession is book two of a three book series. Readers should start with The Proposition.**

Savagely sexy billionaire Sloane Michaels ruthlessly controls his life and everything in it. Even his sex partners are carefully negotiated plus-one arrangements, including his latest, the fiery bakery owner, Kat Thayne. But Sloane’s control is challenged when his mentor becomes seriously ill, and his need for Kat, his need to possess her at all costs, rivals only his single-minded goal of vengeance for the murder of his sister.

After surviving an attack six years ago, Kat Thayne escaped her fears in the protective world of her beloved bakery. Then Sloane Michaels storms into her life, making her feel beautiful, strong and sexy. Yet as Kat pushes her boundaries and uncovers a dangerous secret in her past, Sloane’s controlling side emerges. Worried that Sloane will possess her mind, body and soul, Kat fights to keep her hard won independence. But just as Sloane demands her complete surrender, she discovers he has a dark side that could destroy them both.

**Possession is an adult contemporary novel and is not intended for younger readers due to mature content.**

OBSESSION, Book 3 - Coming 9/24/13

Ok…I’m going to do a twosome since I read books 1 & 2 and also because this is a trilogy where the story of Sloane & Kat is drawn out to cover 3 books.

I’m not much of a fan of trilogy’s, especially when it deals with the same couple AND especially when it’s a couple that I start to love...this is because I want to find out what going on with a quickness. What can I say? I’m nosy like that.

The Proposition starts this story of two extremely damaged people and I mean damaged in the worst way. Kat who now owns a bakery, was brutally attacked years ago with her ex-fiancĂ©…she is trying to move on with her life, but she still has panic attacks and is distant from her family. On the night of a gig she had, she comes across Sloane Michaels, an ex UFC fighter, now turned bazillioniare.

Well to get into this story without really getting into…Sloane saves Kat and her best friend from the robbery and this people starts Sloane’s almost stalkerish ways to get to know Kat "a lil" better. He also offers her a proposition…be his “plus-one” and this ladies is how Sloane Michaels works. Instead of getting emotionally evolved with a woman, he always offer her this deal. Go out with him on dates, basically be his arm candy and he in return takes care of you…financially and oh man sexually.

Kat who has her own issues never met a man so arrogant, but she’s attracted to Sloane…no one has made her feel so alive since like ever! So she decides to take the offer. Plus, Sloane also offers to train her how to protect herself because all of a sudden Kat’s ex suddenly starts re-appearing in her life.

Possession picks up with Kat & Sloane working their way around this plus one relationship. They’re both starting to get that “oh my, god…I think I love him/her” feeling. And omg, they both are fighting it like…well two UFC fighters in the cage…lols.

Sloane is able to break down Kat’s walls more I think. He shares his feelings with her, but won’t commit too much. See Sloane has a secret that he hasn't exactly shared with Kat and of course his selfish ass momma reveals to Kat exactly what that secret is and what he plans to do.

This story even though it’s broken into 3 books is just great. I mean you don’t have just another rich man coming to save the po’ little ol’ broke woman. Kat came from money, so she doesn't really need…nor does she want it. She just wants to be able to go through life being scared all the time.

I liked Kat…she was an angry woman and hard-headed, but I definitely understood her reason why she acted the way she did. It truly was her coping mechanism…a way for people not to hurt her anymore, so…yeah I got it. Sloane Michaels…lawd! What a hot-ass man. I mean I've read some sexually arrogant men before, but Mr. Michaels definitely takes the top spot in my book. He was big, powerful and damn! He made eating cupcakes never normal for me again.

Anyways, I loved the mixing of these two characters. I loved the complexity that Jennifer Lyons created with them…the struggles with their feelings for one another while they attempted to deal with their own demons was just amazing to read. It made them real…relatable.

I’m loving this story and cannot wait to read the conclusion, Obsession (book 3). It should be pretty damn exciting to see what the future holds for these two.

  1. Wow, these sound really good. I'm going to start right away and get the first one. I'm pretty intrigued by a bossy UFC billionaire! Your review is fantastic, you sold it for me!

  2. I disagree with you about Kat. I don't think she was an angry person. I think she was scared and felt all alone. She didn't have any back up and didn't know how to cope.
    I love Kat and Sloane. Jenn makes them believable and likable. I'm so looking forward to THE OBSESSION.

  3. This looks so great! Thanks for sharing with us! I adore that cover as well.

    Books like this make me wonder whether the author had any influence from friends and family while writing it.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  4. Thank you!

    You're going to love the stories Liz :) they're really good!

  5. I think she was in a sense because of all of the things that you mentioned above. No, she didn't walk around spitting fire all the time, but anger was her a way to cope as well. She tended to push people away in her anger. She did it a couple of times with Sloane.

    It did't take away from her character & I still had love for her and as you said it made her believable...likable.

    Thanks for stopping by & I hope you enjoy Obsession!

  6. oh...that would make the story even more exciting!

    thanks for stopping through Meghan & good luck!

  7. The Plus One Chronicles sounds like a very interesting series. Great review. Thanks for sharing.

  8. Sharonda, thank you for the 2-in-1 review! And for hosting the blog tour today!

  9. Book Lady, she did a great review, didn't she?

    Meghan, I did have some influence. Kat's injury was based on one my son endured (though his was a freak accident). And I grew up with an older brother into martial arts, which helped me understand the drive and commitment it takes to get to the level that Sloane achieved in UFC.

    Viki, I think you saw something in Kat I was too close to her to see :-) But it makes sense.

    Liz really hope you enjoy the book!

    Thank you all for stopping by today!

  10. Awesome review! Definitely going on my TBR list! :)

  11. This one looks good! I'll be adding it to my TBR right away!
