After a vicious assault four year ago, Winter Cortez has sober up and is able to get up every morning. That’s until she receives a call that will turn her life upside-down again.

Determined to face her demons, Winter comes back to New York when she meets Sam Mitchell, a former Military man who will do whatever it takes to protect her from her attacker.

I liked the hero, he was an alpha male, possessive & protective over the heroine and fell hard over heels upon just one

Deadly Obsession has to be one of my top reads of 2016 and I absolutely loved it.

KL Humphreys has written another heartbreakingly beautiful story in the Deadly series. Deadly obsession had me captivated from the start and I instantly fell in love with the characters. KL Humphreys has done an incredible job with writing the point of view of both characters and writing the characters emotions in a way where I as feeling what the characters were feeling.

I am in love with Sam and wish that

Deadly Obsession by K L Humphreys is Book 2 in the Deadly series.

This time our main characters are Sophia's best friend Winter and Sophia's army team mate Sam. There is an instant connection between Winter and Sammie and all he is wants to do is protect her and kill whoever it was that put the fear in her eyes and causes her to flinch away from physical affection even from her family.

It's an instant love at first sight between Winter and Sammie as Winter deals with her issues caused by her rape

In book one; Deadly Hunt (Sophia and Nathan's story), we found out that Winter had been attacked and was understandably struggling to deal with it. In Deadly Obsession we find out just what happened that night, what happened after, and we see what happens when the truth comes out about it all.

Sam is Sophia’s teammate from the military and she has asked him to keep an eye on Winter, her best friend and his new neighbour, while she settles in. He reluctantly agrees but

This book! This book is so heartbreaking yet at the same time it was an adventure with a heroine while works so hard to overcome her past, while finding true love and becoming a new woman.

The writing was amazing. KL is able to pull you in and make you fall i lmao love with these characters, their pasts, and the side characters.

The plot was so heartbreaking. We learn about it in book one but seeing the characters experience it in someone else's eyes will never give you the full feels as you get

That was a journey of heartache, to have to bear a secret on your own and the closest people to you don't know the extent. Well done KL. You captured the purest meaning of that kind of situation and what happens afterwards. Winter endured and was strong even if she didn't know it, then Sam comes along makes her feel again after such a tragedy. You had me on the edge of my seat the whole time and in the end you had me worried but you came through. I could feel the fear and the love that everyone ...more

Winter continues her story where she left off from in Deadly Hunt.
Just when she thinks she's safe, he comes for her again, back with a vengeance. She moves back home to be with Sophia and her friends, hoping that telling them the truth of what happened to her will make all the difference, however, she'll have to face the past and finally, do something about it.

Deadly Obsession is the second book in the series. Personally I would read the books in order because parts of Winter's story is within the first book. Don't get me wrong. Everything is detailed within this book but it never quite touches the emotional reaction when the truth actually comes out like it did in book one.

I enjoyed reading how Sam and Winter's relationship progresses but truly love seeing how other individuals relationships are touched up on. This book may be about Sam and Winter bu

This book is amazing!! It definitely touched my heart. Going through the life changing journey with Winter and seeing her become the strong woman she is with Sam is really touching. I couldn't put this book down. Honestly. Pretty sure I bored my mom with silence as I was devouring this book, haha.
Reading about Soph and Nathan, experiencing Sam and Winter, Luke and Morgan and Ryder and Skye... I can't wait to read more. Know more about their life's while reading about y favorite people falling i

This book was an emotional rollercoaster. Winter is Sophia's best friend. Years ago she experienced a tramatic event that left her broken. She has fought hard to get her life back when her attacker becomes her stalker. Sam comes into her life and not only helps her heal but helps her break free from her stalker.

When I first was introduced to Winter, I thought she was an awful person. It was refreshing to be able to understand why someone may act a certain way. I liked Sam from the moment we wer

OMG this book grabs you from the beginning and doesn't let go. Winter has gone thru a major tragedy in this book. Just when she starts to see the light at the end of the tunnel tragedy strikes again, can she ever get a break...Sammy falls for Winter and he is her constant support, he falls for her fast and they have great chemistry. This book is well written and I would recommend it. You have to read Deadly Hunt first as Winters attitude comes out in it but you don't know why she is the way she ...more

Geez I don’t know how many times I cried while reading this book. It evoked so much emotion while I read it. Winter has gone through so much. But the author has built a truly inspiring character. One who is strong and worthy of admiration. And Sam, I love him. He’s another amazing character. While i have never been very fond of Sophia’s character, I like her much more in this book. The whole idea that family is not just blood is very inlaid in this series. I love that about it. And the suspense. ...more

Holy hellz! What a gripping read!
Winter and Sam's tale is fraught with tension and high emotions. So well written that I felt like I was in the story! Reading how their friendship develops and trust is earned was lovely.
We have the characters from the first book here too with this continuation, so it's great to find out how things have developed for them.
I can't wait to read the next book now!

Winter and Sam's story is incredibly well written. I could feel Winter's hesitation and anxiety as I read. Sam knows something happened to Winter and he is the kindest, most amazing man to help her through her fears, even not knowing what happened. He only gets better once he hears the whole story. I strongly recommend this book.

Deadly Obsession is by far something to obsess about. This is the second story in the Deadly series and they just keep getting better. Fair warning though, this will break your heart, at least it did mine. I have found that sequels can either go one of three ways; one they can be a letdown, they can just be not as good as the first. Two, they could just be a big setup for the third book and feel like a waste of time. Third, which I am happy to say this book falls under, it blows you away with pe ...more

Oh my goodness!!! I can't say enough about this book. If you're looking for strong women & alpha men who work hard, fight and love harder then you need this book!
Winter & Sam's story will keep you on the edge of your seat for wanting more. This story doesn't come without some sadness but you will still find your piece of mind at the end.
Yes I shed my tears but I don't know if anyone who wouldn't have.
I hope all the characters get their own stories told.... I love these books & Humph

I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review, and have to say I loved it, the author did a great job with Winters storyline, and the serious subject matter was well thought out and it looks like K.L. Humphreys really did her homework, I love the characters, and how everyone had there own unique quirks, but as a group they really fit together, really looking forward to the next in the Deadly Series...A well deserved five stars!!

This is the 2nd book in the Deadly series.
I absolutely loved Sam in this book. Winters was ok. I get from her past why she acts the way she does. She just wants to is move on. It's a good storyline and theres enough suspense to keep you on the edge of your seat. I'd recommend this book to my friends.
