BOOK REVIEW- Hidden Obsession (Alliance Agency #2) by India Kells *
On the hot streets of Miami, someone is watching, waiting for the perfect moment to strike at a team member of the Alliance Agency.
Cleo Darwin is the stunning violet-haired office manager of the Alliance Agency. She is capable, controlled and respected by the people she works with. But the woman who has such complete control has a secret. Her past is anything but pretty; it is messy and cruel and why she strives to live her life with no room for surprises.
Until she meets Mason Bentley, the clean-cut suit wearing operative that makes her body hum and her heart wants more. She tries to fight the attraction they share but he is slowly breaking down her defenses and showing the life she could have with him -- a future.
Mason Bentley has spent his life protecting the rich and famous, from politicians to royalty, and never has he been tempted to change the rigid control he has on his life until her. Cleo walked into his life and made him yearn for a future filled with bright colors and love.
Now, a stalker is hunting Cleo, and as the threats escalate and the stakes become perilous, will Mason be able to protect the woman he has given his heart to, from the person who wants her dead?
The stakes have never been higher and the danger never so real, but not all is as it seems as secrets and past lives crash into the present. AMAZON LINK
The book cover caught my attention first. It made me stop long enough to read the book information. And now I want to write a review on it.
I have to say that I had mixed feelings on the book. Was it the main characters? No. I liked both of them. They were unique and had some layers to their personalities.
I even liked the supporting characters that surrounded them. They were not only highly skilled but loyal to the bone. A mix of chosen people who become like family.
Was it the mystery of Cleo's stalker? No, that was done in a scary good way.
It's got to be the way the sexual encounters between Cleo and Mason almost overtook the story. That's just my opinion. I know that both Cleo and Mason were hot for each other the moment that they met. They hid it really well for quite a while. But once it was out in the open between them? Wow, get out the fire-hose! That had we bouncing between 3 or 4 Stars on Amazon. The thing that had me bounce back up to 4 was because they really did care for each other. That was legit. And also because the forces that were against them were so well done with at least 1 huge, totally unexpected twist towards the end.
