Review ~ Want Me (Dark Obsession #2) by Cynthia Eden

Want Me (Dark Obsession, #2)eARC received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: January 27th 2015

She doesn’t play it safe…

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.

My Opinion

After enjoying the first book in this series I was intrigued to read the next. Lex and Sophie caught my eye in book 1 so I couldn't wait to find out what their story would entail.

Whilst there were definite good parts to this book, I do however don't think it lived up to the first.

Overall I liked the story. I found this one to be less predictable and the mystery/suspense was set up well. I liked the danger and tension that was included the whole way through and once again the hot bodyguards are a great bonus.

The problem I had was with the romantic side of things. I just didn't buy into it. For me it all felt a little rushed and unbelievable. There wasn't the growth I usually like and declarations, intimacy, and emotions came about way too quickly. I don't know why, but something about these characters just didn't connect with me.

Anyway, Want Me was a quick, easy read. Whilst I don't think it was as good as book one, it was still a nice continuation and I'll be wanting to read book 3.
