You can never go wrong with K.C. Lynn. I don’t know how she does it but despite the formulaic nature of her books, she still keeps me glued to the pages and leaves me completely satisfied. Every freaking time.

Story. The author delivers another winning fallen fighter meets damaged girl story with a perfect mix of romance and suspense. The story is intense, emotional and off the charts HOT.

Hero. Beside being a fallen fighter (which is hot by default), a yummy possessive and loyal alpha wit

Right, so what can I say about this book?
Well I will start by something that surprised me the most, The music and dancing.
I am often found dancing and singing as part of my daily life. So when you have a book that put those two things together, well you have...


Songs included here are:

Uptown funk by Bruno Mars when Sophia show her moves.
Thinking out loud by Ed Sheeran when they dance together the first time.

Every time I think this author can't give me more beauty than the last she proves me wrong. I've wanted Kolan's story it seems like forever. He had this air of danger yet loneliness and that always calls to me. I was worried about his past with his "tastes" but this author wrote him and Sophie's story with absolute grace and respect. Nothing bothered me and I adored how he cherished her and worshiped her. This strong warrior fought so many battles against danger to her but also the scars inside ...more

I was scared to read this book because of the H's past but thanks to Nichole's review I decided to read it.
It was AMAZING!! I loved Kolan and Sophie!!
This book it's completely safe. (view spoiler)
This is a book I've had for a while and just kept putting off reading it. Now I'm wondering what in the hell i was thinking.

Kolan and Sophie were both a little damaged from past events in their lives. Sophie's been on the run for a long time on her own never making friends or forming any type of bonds. She goes to the same gym that Kolan works at to get self defense lessons. Kolan agrees to do private lessons because Sophie isn't comfortable in crowds. This begins a beautiful friendship. These

After I finished An Act of Salvation it just wasn't possible to not start this one right away. I needed to know more about Kolan and how he was going to move on from so many betrayals in his life. And the story that I read was beyond what I even imagined it would be.

Kolan and Sophie were wonderful characters that I loved reading about and getting to know everything there was to know about. Sophie really intrigued me with her past and I loved seeing her with Ko

Okey, deep breaths.

From the moment this book started with a scene that felt like from thriller movies I was captivated. Hooked. I just knew it. I knew it at that moment that this book would be wonderful. And it didn’t disappoint.

I knew it I FREAKING knew it that Kolan was going to be AMAZING and he was, he truly, truly was. I looooove Him and I'm going to be honest I wanted to hate Sophie (Yes I was jealous of a fictional character don't judge) but she was perfect for Kolan I couldn't hate her even a little.

Plenty of reviews out there so I just want to say I loved it! This is my favorite type of troupe where there's a damsel in distress and the white knight rides in to save the day.

Kolan was such a great hero....that OTT possessive alpha that I love. He was a amazing brother and friend and so much more than what people made him out to be. But he was absolutely awesome with Sophie. He was everything she needed. Plus he was a dirty talker ;)

I loved little Benny. He was such a great kid and hilarious.

So far I have loved every single book written by this author, which includes this one !!

I think this one may be my favorite ...eventhough Cade's book was pretty awesome as well.

I really liked Kolan. He was hot, possessive, sweet and an amazing dirty talker ;) He is definitely one of my favorite characters in this series and the previous one.

I flove this book! Kolan is definitely a good addition to my book boyfriend list. All that alpha male deliciousness makes me giddy. :) This is my first read by this author, by the way. A lot of my safety friends loved this. Hence, I gave this is a try.

Basically, the story is our heroine Sophie/Lia has a psychopath stalker. One act of kindness in high shool has her saddled with a deranged man. She ran away and changed her identity when her roommate and boyfriend in college were killed by said ma

Let me start this review by telling you that if you have not read any K.C. Lynn’s book you are missing something huge here. Her stories not only give you all the feels while reading them but she also has the ability to create such awesome characters. Ones that reach out of the pages and pull you into their lives, and they stay with you long after you close the book.

I have been waiting for An Act of Obsession from the moment I met Kolan Slade. It was like love at first read? Yeah, something like
The Romance Book Disciple (Samantha)
An Act of Obsession
KC Lynn

I gobble up Lynn's books! Seriously, they are usually the type of books I simply cannot put down. They always have a good balance of heat, romance, and danger. I have been looking forward to Sophie and Kolan's story and I wasn't disappointed.

Sophie has a crazy stalker. Like-a legit psychopath. You will get the backstory in pieces as you read and its crazy scary because its so believable. If you read the previous books in the series, you already know Kolan's back story
An exciting read. Both H and h were great, although H did act as a jerk once, he regretted immediately and apologized. He didn't have ex show up or anything like that, a bonus.

h underwent was sad and horrible, fortunately she met H and many nice people here.

Wish there's an epilogue with babies. Ok, I got she just found her life back, she needed more time to build her future. But the epilogue could be several years later. A wishful thinking for me.

What a great story from great a author!

Once again I am rendered speechless and don't have any idea where to start with my review. Seriously, this is usually what I went through every time I finished reading a book from K.C Lynn. If I'm not a blubbering mess or turned on tho the zenith, laughing out loud or swooning I am a combin

Very sweet read from this author. The sex was hot and I loved seeing all the old crew.

My main issue (not really an issue and it's probably just me because no one else has said anything) was the male character's name. I pronounced it in my head as a unfavorable body part. Maybe it has a different pronunciation but it was a little too close for me.

Also the chick giggled a lot. After 18 giggles don't happen that often.

Overall I really enjoyed this one.
Not planning to read. this author really likes her virgin heroines and manwhore heroes -- many of them unfaithful during separations. :(

There hasn't been a KC Lynn book that I haven't devoured. An Act of Obsession continues the streak of fabulous reads from her. Kolan Slade is Katelyn's brother. He is the heavy weight champion of the EFC world, but over the last year, his life has been hell. Not only was he falsely accused of rape but his sexual preferences that he fulfills at Club Annihilation are public knowledge. He's retired from fighting and just wants to live a quiet life.

An Act of Obsession is Sophie and Kolan’s story. Sophie’s life is changed forever when an act of kindness towards a kid at school leads to his obsession with her. This leads to a horrific event that leaves her with scars on the inside as well as the outside. Sophie is no longer the girl she was before and is just surviving day to day.
