Toxic to all those who touch him, dragon-warrior Venom lives in self-imposed isolation, a prisoner of the poison in his veins. But when a chance meeting with a woman challenges the belief he is destined to be alone, he pulls out all the stops, vowing to put the savagery of his past behind him and take a chance on love.
She doesn’t want to face her future…
Wanted by the Russian mob, creative accountant Evelyn Foxe isn’t looking for love. She searching for the fastest way to escape instead. When Venom offers to get her out of trouble, she accepts his help, but remains skeptical, afraid he’s in league with those sent to harm her. But when someone unleashes a biological weapon in her hometown, and she gets caught in the firestorm, little choice remains—trust Venom to keep her safe or risk her life by going it alone.
Evelyn is really caught in a bad place. Her late mother left debts that need paying and these are not the sort of guys to mess around with! She has recently lost her job and now down but most certainly not out, she has to salvage something. The chance to earn money working as a high class call girl seems like her only way out of a very sticky situation but her first client is nothing like what she was expecting! He is gorgeous, patient and oh so gentle. What Evelyn doesn't know is Venom is a dragon and she's about to get sucked into their war.
Fury of Obsession is well written and fast paced but I was a little disappointed as the central couple had only met once when my kindle informed me I was half way through the story. Ms Callahan kept cutting to scenes of surrounding characters which added to her world building but slightly irritated this reader.
Venom is a very sexy shifter determined to woo his lady, sigh. I liked that Evelyn was a strong female used to taking charge and very loyal. They do eventually get more time together, so yes expect delicious sexy scenes.
The author leaves her readers with questions though and I suspect we will soon see a whole new side to Ivar (can this villain be redeemed?) and this is a plot that is clearly far from over. If you are in the mood for good storytelling and hot dragons than this series is a must read. I'm not a fan of Mates usually but Ms Callahan pulls it off with aplomb. Romantic, entertaining and fun!
I was getting gifted a copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
