I found this when I was browsing on Amazon. As soon as I read the synopsis, I knew I had to read it. Just from the synopsis, Nick sounded like a combination of Gideon Cross and Brian Ross….or the good things about each of them.

From page one, I was hooked. Nick had faced trauma and loss in his past, but he didn’t let it keep him from getting to know Halley and falling for her. He was also a protective, chivalrous hero that is so much fun to read.

Halley just about broke my heart. She had been th

I don't normally write bad reviews, but I feel it's necessary in this case to warn readers.

This author has no notion of how to do even the most minor research regarding prescription drug use or physical injury, and quite frankly, I think it's a bad sign when I find myself hoping the protagonists don't procreate for fear of how stupid their offspring would be.

First, the inaccuracies:

1a) The heroine is prescribed anxiety medication due to an attempted rape. She pops these things like candy wheneve

For all those ladies who like their male hero's with tattoo's, piercings, muscles and a protective streak, I've found your man- Nick. He was not quite alpha enough for me although he does do some growling throughout the book and has some serious issues with his past, which adds to his bad-boy persona.

I loved the inner battles Nick had with regards to his feelings for Halley at the beginning of the book, they made me laugh. I especially loved his rough talk. He is very caring towards Halley and c

I think the author wrote two different sex scenes for the characters first time, and then just threw them both in. It was that repetitive. The characters are awful. One dimensional. Whiny. They say really hilariously dorky things though. That's what it is. This is a dork romance! I will reimagine the scene where she is being chased by the neighbor guy on her run, with them both running like nerds, perhaps pigeon-toed and not swinging their arms! Omg, hilarious. Now I love this book! :P (Seriousl ...more

3.5 stars for Obsessed

Halley, a chef, wants to open her own bakery with her best friend Kaiti. When they celebrate at a bar, Halley sees Nick for the first time. She instantly feels drawn to him but doesn't approach him.

Nick feels the same way. He has a troubled past and doesn't want to get involved with anyone.

When Nick leaves the bar, he coincidentally witnesses a man dragging a drugged woman behind a dumpster. That woman is Halley. Nick rescues her and she gets away with several cuts along
Lisa Sanchez shines in creating such likable characters who are so compatible with one another. Nick & Halley are both wounded souls who meet under harsh circumstances. He is sincere, sweet and sexy. She is vulnerable yet strong. They fall intensely for one another even though Nick is resistant to fall in love. Oh yeah, Halley is being stalked and Nick feels it's his job to protect her. Ms. Sanchez does a great job in creating a perfect balance of both tender and steamy-hot moments for Nick ...more

3.5 Stars

I'm going to start this review by saying this is an interesting story that focus on how some people can become obsessed by others and how they can bring big emotional damage to both parts. My sister is a psychologist, so I know some things about personality problems (because our bad guy is full of this!).

Nick is our main male character. He is a great person that had already dealt with a series of misfortune events throughout his life. We see through the book what happened to him and wh
Halley Davis is out with her best friend celebrating their new endeavor, when she sees a man who peaks her curiosity. Wanting to focus on looking at him, she ends up being a target for a creep who ends up attacking her and leaving her for dead. Little does she know that the man she had been gazing at ends up rescuing her and saving her life.

Nick Ackart had his life ripped from him in a matter of seconds, moving to San Francisco to escape the nightmares that continue to haunt him. He should stay
Don't recommend. The word "blood" was mentioned 67 times and the word "anxiety" was mentioned 33 times. Hello? Wasn't this supposed to be a love story? Just for grins, the word "Love" was mentioned 64 times. Haha the blood won.
Hmm, I liked it, but I didn't love it. I am always a fan of the tormented heroine, possessive/protective hero storyline, but there were bits of this that were a little over the top for me.

Good steamy read. I finished it in one evening which is even better. I am really enjoying Lisa's work and plan on hunting out the rest of her books.

It had a very interesting plot but the characters were very a little off putting and their dialogue GAH !!

Halley was just a sad little person , she has her reasons alright but it was too down putting to read about her panic attacks , pill popping , the screaming and the crying .. I felt drained and Nick wasn't a saving grace either because he too had his own tragic story .. I felt overloaded by those two characters. The relationship between Halley and Nick was alright , it wasn't constructed

Obsessed was a good read filled with passion, steamy scenes, a scary plot, and fluid writing. If you are a fan of adult contemporary/thriller/romance, this will be a book for you. I couldn't help putting myself in the place of the main character Halley and how limiting, helpless, and horrifying to know your life will never be the same as long as a sadistic stalker is hell bent on making you his. From chapter two on, Halley's life is turned inside out by events out of her control.

I liked both of these characters from the beginning, especially Nick who I guessed had a very valid reason for not wanting to get involved. When Halley is attacked and he comes to her rescue, you like him even more for the knight in shining armor that he is. While the way these two se

In case you like steamy books, this is certainly a book for you. In case you do not like steamy and sexy scenes, be afraid and warned - you just might starting to like them!!!
I read this book within hours.

Meet Nick - a guy who is so tired of meaningless sex, where sex seems to be legs without any faces or names and who uses most of his evening to get drunk to forget his nightmares from the past. his biggest goal is to forget and not not feel.

The first thing of notice about the ebook, Obsessed, is that it reads more like a mainstream short story than an erotic tale. Not that it doesn't have firery erotic heat, the story just takes time to build up to it. There is an anticipation for the erotic that slowly builds as the storyline of the main characters, Nick and Halley, unfolds. Nick is a man who recently experienced great loss and trauma who carries great pain in the form of anger and bitterness. Halley is a women who suffers from an ...more

It was too repetitive and the characters had no depth. The plot seemed to limp along and none of it seemed plausible.
May 20, 2013 Lisa rated it it was ok
This book just didn't do it for me, which was disappointing because I had high hopes.

The plot was interesting, but I got lost in all the "Princess" and "baby girl". I feel like if it was told in a different voice, it might work better. And I could have done with out the Victoria's Secret and Juicy Couture references.

All in all, it was good. But if the best thing I can say is that I managed to finish reading it, the story needs some work.

I keep debating with myself over how many stars to give this book. I think I'll go with 3.5 although the book was very good and had me on the edge almost the whole time I was a bit disappointed that it was so easy to pick out who the stalker was right from the get go. Not to mention that almost to 70% the book started to lag. Even saying all that the story was pretty great.

It's not often that I find a book that I can't put down. You know the kind... you take it to the bathroom with you, read it in line at the grocery store, put on a video for your kids so you can read... yep, it's that kind!

Obsessed has the perfect balance of steaminess, snark, suspense, and humor.

Oh, and I want Nick! SEXY BOY IS SEXY!

Generally a good read. Really thought the connection between hero and heroine was one to do with some supernatural connection like those in shape-shifters - where when they meet their mate they have some sort of link but when I reach the end and there was no such thing. It was a bit annoying. Its like if I was left hanging.

This is a fast paced, sexy thriller. Lisa Sanchez writes in an edgy venacular mirroring the thoughts and actions of her characters as they live through this story. I found it engaging and entertaining. A fun read for the beach or a cozy evening at home
