After a hot weekend with a mysterious woman, Damien Chan did not expect to get a frightened phone call from her, begging him to save–what? who? The call is cut before she says it. The next thing he knows, he’s become obsessed with finding her and saving her from the man that had led to their first meeting. But he never expected to find her in his cousin Dale Carson’s house… as his wife!



She finds out her nightmares are actually memories of her past life… the life of a murderer. Could she truly be the deranged Ellsa Jabari who’d almost added her own sister Ellie to the list of people she’s killed?




After reading Fatal Jealousy I eagerly awaited the release
of Fatal Obsession, the second volume in the Black Widow series. I was glad to
receive a complimentary copy via the book machine in exchange for an honest
review.  My excitement stemmed from my
being eager to find out how Ellsa’s story was going to play out.  Fatal Jealousy ended with her being taken to a
mental institution for the criminally insane from which she ultimately escaped.
It’s advisable to read Fatal Jealousy before proceeding with this
installment.  This will enable you to
have a clear understanding of who Ellsa is and what makes her tick.
The story begins in 2006 where readers are introduced to
Damien Chen, an FBI agent who was on vacation in Miami.  While there he encountered a mysterious
beauty whom he dubbed Victoria Secret because the type of bathing suit she was
wearing.  He was intrigued by her and was
compelled to protect her based on events that transpired.  Fast forward to 2012 we see Damien has been
obsessively searching for the mysterious woman for the past five years after
she disappeared without a trace.  His
search led to a series of events that provides readers with a story that is
filled with intrigue, suspense and drama.
From the moment I started reading I was pulled into the
story. The pace is just right.  While
reading I had many questions which compelled me to keep reading as I was eager
to know the answers. It had me guessing at every turn and when the truth was
revealed I was taken aback as I never saw it coming.  To say the revelations were shocking is an
understatement.
The characters were interesting. It was easy to understand
Damien’s pain and frustration as he tried to figure out what was happening with
Victoria Secret/Ellsa.  There were times
when I wanted to lash out at Dale for his treatment of Ellsa. I understand that
he wanted to protect his family, but he was allowing hatred to cloud his
judgement.  After reading this installment,
I was able to appreciate Ellsa. I actually grew to like her. She is strong and
even though she is faced with tough situations at every turn she did show fear.
In my opinion, I thought Fatal Obsession was an excellent
read. It was well written, the characters were well developed and the story was
awesome.  I would recommend this title to
readers who love stories that is filled with intrigue, suspense and drama.
