Review ~ Need Me (Dark Obsession #3) by Cynthia Eden

Need Me (Dark Obsession, #3)
ebook received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: February 24th 2015

Innocent…or guilty?

The cops think that Julianna Smith is a murderer. No one will listen when Julianna claims she’s innocent, and as the suspicions mount against her, only Julianna knows the truth…a killer is hunting her. Somewhere in the darkness, a stalker is closing in and preparing to deliver a final justice that she can’t escape.

He’s her only option.

Devlin Shade isn’t a man who trusts easily, and when Julianna Smith walks into VJS Protection, he’s well aware of her reputation—the sexy blond could be a cold-blooded murderer. Only when he looks at her, cold is the last thing that Devlin feels. There’s an instant attraction between them—hot, fierce, primal. And he agrees to take her case. He’ll be her bodyguard. He’ll keep her safe from the enemy hunting her, and he’ll also find out the truth about the mysterious Julianna. If she is a killer, he’ll turn her over to the cops himself. 

She can’t let him get too close...

Julianna knows that she is walking a dangerous line with Devlin. She never expected to want him so much, and as they grow closer, she realizes that he’s working to uncover her secrets. But the secrets that she carries are worth killing for…and she can’t let anyone discover the truth, not even Devlin.

Killer or victim...

Soon the thin line between right and wrong is blurred. For Devlin, the case becomes personal, and all that matters is Julianna—keeping her safe and stopping the stalker who is on her trail. As he slides deeper into Julianna’s dangerous world, Devlin’s own darkness rises up. He’s played the good guy for so long, but now his mask is falling away. He isn’t controlled, he isn’t safe, and when Julianna is threatened, he will cross any line to keep her safe.

My Opinion

Having read the previous books in this series, and enjoyed them, I was excited to read the final instalment-- especially with how book two ended. I was I intrigued by Devlin's story and wanted to see how he'd protect Julianna.

Just like with the first two, this book moves at a fast pace and keeps you hooked. I found this one to be slightly less predictable than the others and it was also more enjoyable to read. I found myself stuck in the moment rather than thinking ahead and I believed in the emotions from the characters.

Although I didn't feel much of a spark in the romantic side of things, I enjoyed watching them grow closer together. By the end I did by into the relationship more and I wanted the best for them. I liked Dev and his loyalty. The guys made these books for me because of their strength and desire to protect.

I do wish there had been more on Ethan and there were a few loose ends that weren't totally tied up but for the most part it was a good conclusion. It was definitely my favourite in the series.
