Sophie Sarantos has a weakness for dangerous men. She doesn’t like safe lovers—she likes men with a wild, rough edge. But Sophie may have attracted a lover who is too dangerous, even for her. Someone is stalking Sophie, slipping into her home, watching her day and night. The stranger seems to know all of Sophie’s darkest secrets, secrets that should never be revealed.
Out of options, Sophie turns to ex-solider Lex Jensen for protection. Lex is part owner of VJS Protection, Inc., and Sophie hires him as her bodyguard. She thinks Lex is one of the “good guys” out there, but she couldn’t be more wrong.
He doesn’t play at all…
Lex has his own secrets. Dark, deadly secrets. And as his feelings for Sophie grow, Lex knows that he is going to have to stop pretending to be a gentleman and, instead, he’ll have to show Sophie who he really is. A man trained to kill. A man too used to evil. A man who will take any risk…as long as he can claim Sophie.
Because there is one thing that Lex wants in this world…one person he desires above all others…Sophie. And no one will hurt her, not on his watch.
WANT ME – Dark Obsession, Book 2
Author's Note: WANT ME does not contain a cliff-hanger ending. It is a complete, stand-alone title.
Sophie has kept her secrets buried and her heart with them. Hugely successful in her job but determined to live alone, what she hadn't been prepared for was a stalker to invade her home and threaten her. She hires round the clock security and gets the very tempting and oh so dangerous Lex, but what she hadn't expected was just how determined to guard her body he would be. The chemistry is undeniable but Sophie doesn't get involved with anyone and yet Lex pushes all her buttons.
Someone is watching Sophie very closely and is not happy at this latest development though. Just who can she trust? With an obsessed killer on the loose, it looks like all of Sophie’s secrets are about to be revealed but is she as innocent as Lex believes?
Ooh, I love Ms Eden's stories and her ability to surprise the reader knows no bounds. Expect twists and turns aplenty with red herrings to constantly surprise you. If you have read the previous book, Watch Me, you might recognize the storyline as in many ways it does bare a similarity, but this book has an interesting spin as the author investigates the darkly twisted mind of the heroine’s stalker. As the couple slowly learn to trust each other, there's plenty of heated moments. Sophie pulls no punches and is no pushover but Lex has wanted her since he first saw her and if you enjoy strong alpha males in your books then he will be a delight!
One more member of VJS Inc to have his story told and I feel yet again we will have a damsel in distress with a testosterone fueled hero to save her, but you know what? I love this author's work and will be happy to get sucked in all over again.
