I’ve been looking forward to reading Sweet Obsession for a while now, if it wasn’t the pretty pink cover that drew me in it was the promise of a man-eater called Brooke and an Aussie hunk called Mason who was on the search for ‘more.’
Mason King having recently moved away from his friends and life in Alabama, is nervous about opening his hot yoga studio in Chicago, so when a beautiful lady with balls of steel comes strolling over to introduce herself, he finds himself easily distracted.
Brooke Wicks works at the bakery across the street, decorating cakes and making pastries. She loves her job and she loves sex. Simple. She doesn’t believe in wasting time and when a man captures her attention she goes for it, gets the job done and then moves onto the next. She is a modern and independent woman who is also very likeable.
Brooke decides she wants Mason, I mean who wouldn’t, he is a gorgeous and funny guy who appreciates the opposite sex as much as the next man, but Mason wants something more substantial than a one night stand and thus tries to convince Brooke to go on dates with him and that they should get to know each other first.
“It’s so much better, Brooke. I want you to really feel me. I don’t just want a hard fuck in an alley and then nothing. I can’t do that.”
Brooke is almost horrified at the thought, she’s never really met a man that didn’t want to put out on the first date, but Mason is determined to show Brooke that what he has to offer is more than a quick roll in the hay and he did a damn fine job of it in my opinion.
There was oozes of sexual tension, and that was what I loved most about this book. It is a very character driven story and I loved spending time with them and seeing their relationship evolve. One of my favourite things about reading the romance genre is to watch two people slowly fall in love with each other against their wishes and Sweet Obsession didn’t disappoint in the least.
Bravo J. Daniels, it was a truly delicious story.
This is part 3 in the Sweet Addiction series, but can be read as a Standalone. Told in dual POV.
