Book Review For: 'Save Me' Lucy Leroux
Save Me: A Singular Obsession Novella - Lucy Leroux

'Save Me' Lucy Leroux is book 4.5 in the "Singular Obsession" series. This is the story of Eric and Andie. I have read the other books in this series but feel you can make this a standalone book. Also know that this book is apart of the 'Coming In Hot' Box Set but now it is released on its own now with this book. This is a second chance at love story for Eric and Andie.
Eric's life was gonna from bad to worse and he up and left it about 2 years ago leaving Andie. Eric was hooded on Gambling and Drink and lost his job. When his at his lowest point he is at Calen's Gambling Hall when he needs to save a life. Luckily he does and that changes everything for him. Calen takes him on and helps him to get better. Now after getting his life back he is still missing Andie and did try to make contact when he got out of Rehab but she wouldn't have anything to do with him. When he learns that she is in trouble he goes to help her which opens up old wounds for them. Andie is at her worst and is surprised to see Eric again after he up and left.
I love Ms. Leroux writing and this was a nice second chance at love story.

Obsession
Obsession - Jennifer L. Armentrout

Serena's best friend Mel saw her boyfriend (using term loosely) glow while arguing with his brother. She tells Serena. Naturally Serena doesn't believe her. But then, Mel is murdered in front of her eyes. This leads to Hunter being sent in to find out what she knows (and protect her). 
What worked: 
I liked the concept of the Arum and Luxen. Some of the descriptions during the love scenes were funny. ("His sex...," he is "thick and demanding....") 
What didn't:
Serena was meh. I thought she behaved inappropriately at times. This was when she would think how HOT Hunter was. She did this the first time they met. In the garage when Mel was killed. (I thought WHAT?!) Thinking about Hunter's appendage after he took her somewhere after her attempted murder (this was after being asleep for 2 days too. And not knowing where she was.). Then going after a certain someone. That was dumb. I could go on. But I won't. I'll spare you.
Then there's Hunter. He's an asshole. A big one. I didn't like when he felt Serena up while she was sleeping (but hey, she moaned, so it's okay!). OH HELL NO. I. Didn't. Like. Him. Since he's an alien, he soooooo superior to humanity. Well, he can take that attitude and shove it up his ass.
I also didn't care for the first person alternating points of view. If the chapters were labelled with who was narrating, I would have been (slightly) less annoyed. (Granted, you can easily tell who is narrating, but I still like my labels).
This was the first time I've read this author. Some of the reviews I read compared Serena and Hunter to the couple in the YA series in this same universe. While it sounds interesting, I probably won't read since I really hated Hunter (and I have zero interest in reading about a Luxen version of him).

Lure of Obsession - Lisa Kessler

This one was such an easy read. I finished it in a day. It is very similar to the Paladins of Darkness series by Alexis Morgan, the Eternal Guardians series by Elizabeth Naughton, and the Iron Portal series by Laurie London. The characters were easy to like, the conflict was believable, the passion was great, and the love story developed steadily. I liked the role reversal with the fact that the man is the one who comes to know the paranormal exists rather than the female.  The women come into their muse at 18 where the Guardians don't come into their abilities until they cross path with their muse, so it is left to the women to induct the strong alpha type men into their world. It was a fun read and I'm glad I picked it up on NetGalley.

Lure of Obsession - Lisa Kessler

Lure of Obsession (Muse Chronicles #1) This is my first time reading Lisa Kessler, and it made me eager to read more of her work. Lure of Obsession is the first book in the Muse Chronicles and I consider it a great start to the series.

What the story is about
Lure of Obsession tells the story of Melanie Jacoby and Detective Nate Malone. Melanie a high school English teacher is the reborn muse of tragic poetry. She sees the tragic side of things, but the one tragedy she was not prepared for was finding her roommate and fellow Muse dead. She knows her friend was murdered, but she is unable to convince the detectives in charge of the investigation, as the evidence points to an accidental death.

Detective Nate Morgan is convinced that the death was accidental, but then he had visions, which led him to believe the death of Melanie’s friend was no accident. Now, not only does he have to solve a murder, he has to protect Mel who is the killer’s next target.

The Story
The story began on a sad but intense note. From that moment, the story pulled me in and I had a hard time putting it down. The theme of inspiration was well presented throughout the story. The idea of the rebirth of nine muses and the role they played in inspiring humanity to be their better selves made for a riveting read. However, there are persons who would rather see this inspiration snuffed out, and the Muses had to die.

I enjoyed the mystery/suspense thread, which I thought was thoroughly fleshed out. It had me turning the pages as I was eager to see the direction the story would follow. One thing I appreciate about romantic thrillers/suspense is the events unfold not only through the eyes of the protagonists but also that of the antagonists. This story delivered just that, which made me privy to his plans.

The title aptly describes Nate’s fascination with Mel. From the moment, he met her he felt a connection, which he could not explain and he wanted to protect her. The romance moved at an acceptable pace, given the circumstances surrounding the guardian/muse. In spite of his attraction for Mel, he did not trust his feelings, which I found to be a reasonable reaction given the issues from his past.

I was pleased with the ending. The threat, however, is still imminent, which I am sure will be explored in the upcoming books.

The Characters
Mel being the muse of tragic poetry is used to seeing the tragic side of things. She is what one would consider an eternal pessimist. Meeting Nate proved to be a blessing as he encouraged her to view things in a positive light. I admired her strength and fortitude. She is willing to take a chance on having a relationship with Nate in spite of the risk of having her heart shattered.

Nate avoids relationships at all costs. He does not feel he is capable of love, however, the more time he spent with Mel he discovered that his past did not determine his ability to love. Mel saw beyond his physical and emotional scars. Never once did she view him as a victim. What she saw when she looked at him was a survivor. I found it amusing that he being her Guardian was responsible for protecting her, but instead, she wanted to be the one who did the protecting.protecting.

I enjoyed watching their interaction, which was funny, passionate and sweet. I loved that they learned to trust each other, which was a pivotal moment for Nate.

Conclusion/Recommendation
Lure of Obsession is a well-written story with likeable characters. It was a fantastic read from start to finish and I cannot wait to find out what is in store for the other muses.

Book Review For: Take Me by Lucy Leroux
Take Me: A Singular Obsession Novella - Lucy Leroux

'Take Me' by Lucy Leroux is Book 2.5 in the " Singular Obsession" series. This is the story of Jason and Maggie. I did read the book out of order so it can easily be a standalone book.
Jason is an FBI agent but he seems to be stalking Maggie the "Coffee Girl". His buddy has been teasing him about finally making his move. When he tries to do so he ends up spill coffee on Maggie. Maggie is a rich innocent women who is protected by her brothers and a friends that is like a brother. So Maggie tires to keep her relationship on the down-low. Also it seems that their relationship moved fast where Jason doesn't really know who her family is, which plays a part in their story.
I enjoy Ms. Leroux books so much! Can't wait for the next story to come out!!
