Faith

I had it all, friends, designer everything and money.

With my degree in the bag it was my time to shine, a new beginning just for me. To live my life my way and not to conform to anyone else's plan.

One day changed all of that and everything I knew was taken away from me.

When It happened that one catastrophic event, the person I was

Overall this was an OK book. I didn't enjoy it as much as I hoped I would. There were times I struggled to continue reading it. For me it seemed like your typical Stockholm syndrome between Damien and Faith and their love happened much too fast. The story line was fairly good but I didn't feel any connection to the characters and at times I was left confused trying to figure out Damien's past. A bit more action would have moved the story along at a faster pace!!!

***MY REVIEW***

ARC given by the author for an honest review.

Obsession is Samantha Harrington's debut novel and Wow! This lady can write! This is one of those books I wish I could rate more than 5 stars as it was worth so much more!

When Faith is kidnapped because of a debt her father owes, Faith had no idea that this would change her life for the worse but also for the better....

Damien is the person who has ordered the kidnapping of Faith to try and get her father to repay his debts, but when Fa

If you like insta stuff then this is the thing you would want to read. For me it wasn't what I wanted or needed. It was all just to damn fast like he kidnaps her and then releases her after what 5 weeks? And she is pining after him for months because he gave her food and drinks? In her kidnapping time nothing happened that would give the stockholm syndrome. Okay I don't know when or how fast it can happen, but let's be real here it doesn't go like that I guess..

I was so glad I finished this one

Obsession is a fast paced, action filled story from start to finish. For me though, maybe things moved just a little too fast. It all seemed to happen over a few days/a week, and there was so much packed into that time frame that maybe it was just a little bit too much.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed this book and it had a good storyline, it's just... it felt a little rushed, and because everything was happening so fast there were quite a lot of mistakes in this book. Normally, I don't even mentio

You know, I looked at the reviews for this and have to wonder if the years I spent in a classroom teaching basic grammar have made me overly critical. Only a select few people mention the train wreck that I cringed through while reading this. I just couldn't take it. Lots of comma misuse (or no use), run-on sentences, using the wrong word (there = a place, their = refers to people). Sadly, that killed this for me. I LOVED the premise of this. I am a hard-core a mafia romance lover. The violent " ...more

This is one of those books that will suck you in because you will NEED to know what happens. I stayed up most of the night to finish this book because I had to know how it ended and I definitely wasn't disappointed. This was such a good book and Samantha did an excellent job writting it. I am looking forward to reading more from Samantha and hopefully it will be Cami and Malc's story.

This story starts of fast and suspenseful. It just continues throughout the whole book. The story was easy to keep up with and flowed very well. I enjoyed the character build and how the author developed just a little through the book. She was giving you enough info to follow the story but not enough to keep you guessing. They are twists and turns of events in this book which is another thing I enjoy. I like to be kept guessing. Damien and Faith's chemistry is felt and get intense in some cases. ...more

Really 3 1/2.

It started really well and I enjoyed it. It was a stretch sometimes with her falling in love with her captor. She was very very dramatic I didn't think so at first, but then when all that was done to her friend I was like WTF get over yourself nothing really happened to you.

I don't get why her innocent friend had the crap end of it. I want to read about her and Malcolm. They seemed to catch my interest more the the main couple.

Decent read and I will read the next.

This book had the bones to make a really interesting read, however, the mistakes were enormous. Normally I won't mention editing and grammar mistakes, but this book was rife with them. I give Obsession 3 stars, with the hope that the editors are replaced for the second book.

P.s. please employ a formatter, also.

OMG. Punctuation Please!!

I'm at 22%, and the lack of and/or incorrect punctuation is doing my head in. This author has the 'run on' sentence down to an art.

The story is enjoyable, so I shall persevere; but not sure I'll make it to the end.

Please consider editing.

Thank you.

This book has real potential to be great. The story line is good. But I was distracted by the errors in the writing. I also had a problem feeling the connection between the characters.
I hope Samantha tells Malc and Cami's story.

I absolutely could not put this book down. From the first few pages the author wrote this story and characters perfect. I always start assuming plots when I start reading and this was one of them. But even though I guessed a good amount of this book I was not let down at all. I would recommend this book to others. The story starts with Faith. She's a petty normal girl and gets thrown into her fathers mess. And boy is her dad a winner. He owes money to a well know man and has not made his payment ...more

I finished this book in an hour and a half. I could not put it down. Oh my gosh Samantha, what a absolutely awesome read. Damien is my hero, he really did love Faith more than his own life. I could not believe her dad did that to her, that just blew me away. How could a father be so cruel and unloving!? I am so happy that Cami finally came around, but I understand her point of view like I am sure we all did. I can't wait for Cami & Malc's story to come out now (sitting on pins and needles). ...more

Obsession is definitely an action packed dark erotic. Faith was kidnapped to get her father to pay his debt that he owed. Little does Damien know that he would fall for her. He tells her that he is going to get her out. Which he did. Fast forward 6 months and Faith is not really living. She is tramatized by the event and her almost rape at the hands of Connor. She keeps seeing Damien in the shadows and thinks her mind is playing tricks on her. But it isnt. He is watching her to make sure she sta ...more

I received a complimentary copy of this book through Crazy Cajun Book Addict for an honest review.

Faith had everything she could ever want than one day its all ripped away from her leaving her a shell of the person she used to be, her best friend Cami is the only person she can trust, that is except for
Damian the man that set her free from the hell that she was living. Damian may have set her free but is there more to him than Faith believes and how will they react to each other month

After reading this book I was definitely Obsessed. At first I was skeptical I was thinking, where is the fun in this if the chic is already falling for the "good" guy. So I kept reading on and then I thought to myself...Damien..you sneaky bastard you. From that point on I was hooked on the book and could not put it down. I really like how the story lines keep going and the story has enough detail. I also lo

This is a great debut novel. It has just the right amount of suspense and keeps you wanting to read more. I desperately tried to read this in one sitting as I found it hard to put down. There are not a lot of characters within the book which meant that we got to know them a bit more and on a deeper level .

This was Faith and Damien's story and their HEA was not easy to achieve, they have been to hell and back for their relationship.

I'm looking forward to the next book from this author.

Damien oh wow

This debut novel to me was amazing. It is dark so be warned. Not as dark as I am used to but just the right amount. Absolutely fell in love with Damien. Had my heart racing at times and wanted to yell at a certain character. Looking forward to more from this author. If you're a dark fan definitely pick this up. Can't wait to dive into the next one.

About the author

I wouldn’t say that I wanted to be a writer from when I was little.
I only really started reading often when I had baby number five, as he was born very early and spent thirteen weeks in special care. It was then that I discovered my love for reading.
From then on, I was hooked. I read all types of romance books.
It dawned on me that I wanted to be more than a mum/reader/blogger. I w
