This is not just a love story, it's an obsession...

I can't keep my eyes off the tall, dark, and confident man who stops in the coffee shop every morning. I want this stranger more than I've ever wanted anyone before, even though I only know his first name. As an author, my imagination is my ultimate writing tool, men like Kane my muse. And the minute he leaves, I'm overcom

I've said it time and time again, but I freaking love novellas!

It's so refreshing to be able to pick up a story and know it's going to be short and super sexy, and then fall in love with the characters.

Lila has a crazy crush, an obsession if you will (Bahaha...see what I did, there?) on "Kane with a K". She sees him every morning at the coffee shop, but he never notices her. When he finally does, deliciously sexy times ensue.

Forever Him is the first book in the Obsessed series, and I definitely

Kane & Lila
Holy moly this is a HOT listen, I mean you expect that anyways from this author.
But I was not expecting that. Not only do we get a delicious story but we also get some freaking fantastic steamy times too.
That ending wow did not see coming!

Dammmmmmn! That's all I can say. This book isn't hot, it's on freaking fire. White hot flames coming off this short and dirty read. Make sure you're reading it where no one is going to see your face, because I guarantee you're going to go six shades of red, be all hot and bothered and perhaps a little turned on (A LOT turned on). Kane with a K is an alpha magnate who Lila is infatuated with and when she finally gets her wish to "touch" her obsession, the sparks fly and set the whole place a flam ...more

4 star review of Forever Him (An Obsessed Novella Book One) by Jeanne St James

Audio Review

A quick, hot and steamy novella which Ava Lucas narrated extremely well. Although a novella, Ms .St James packed an awful lot into Forever Him. I rally liked Kane and Lilah, I felt their connection and the chemistry between the two of them is scorchingly hot.

However it is not just a steamy book, it has depth and the characters were easy to relate too. My only complaint was that I wanted more as I was disapp

Oh, wow! Jeanne St. James has done it again with "Forever Him." What a fantastic steamy storyline and the characters, Lila and Kane are oh, so hot that they just gripped me from the very beginning and kept me totally captivated until the very end! I can't wait to read the second book in this series!

I liked this story well enough until the twist at the end. I hate stories involving this plot device, so it lost a star in my rating. Otherwise, the writing was well done and I enjoyed their playtime antics very much.

Kane with a K and Lylah were off the charts hot. I listened to this in my car and was completely enthralled. Ava was amazing as usual her performance of this novella was top notch. Another great start to a Jeanne St James series.

This was an okay read for me. Lol, a romance writer, has an obsession with Kane with a K, who comes into the coffee shop that she goes to everyday. One day, weeks later, he notices her and he cant stop staring at her, she blurs out an inappropriate comment and runs outside from mortification. Unfortunately she's about to run out into traffic but Kane stops her from bring hit by a car. After this they end up hooking up and having sex, a lot of sex. The story is vague in certain spots and I needed ...more

Forever Him is a novella in the Obsessed series. Ms. St James is a new author to me. I was very impressed by her writing style with this book and found it enjoyable.

Lila Flowers is an author, and she sits in a coffee shop to do her writing. She notices a man, he’s tall, dark and handsome. He comes in everyday and gets black coffee, and finds out his name is Kane with a K. She becomes obsessed with him. One day, he finally looks over at her, and when he has a lengthy perusal full of heat, she sho

Oh wow, what can I say apart from this book is brilliant. It might not be a long book but oh wow it's got everything in it and more.
It's nothing like the stories I'm use to from Jeanne and I wasn't sure as to what to expect but it went above and beyond what I excepted.
As usual it's a hot steamy erotic read from start to finish and I can't wait for the next in the series to come out. I thought my favourite series was the Dare menage series but this may top them.
I loved it from the first page and

For a novella this one sure packs a punch and then some! Lila is an author who prefers to write in a coffee shop where she can get inspiration from the people around her. Kane, with a K, is the alpha male who entrances Lila from the first time she lays eyes on him. However Lila does not believe that he would ever notice her. One morning, Lila is so wrapped up in writing her story that she accidentally blurts out, rather loudly, what she is feeling about Kane. Mortified, she runs out of the coffe ...more

You will be WOWED!!! HOT!!! STEAMY!!!!
This is the first book I have read by this author and I must say she is very good at putting a story on for you. I must say I was intrigued during the first few chapters, it seems to mysterious. Wondering where she was going, but wow keep reading you will not be disappointed. It is hot and steamy with plenty to keep you going to the very end. And what an ending I can say I never would have thought that was the case or how this was going to end.

If I die this minute, I will have died satisfied!!!! Jeanne St. James writing style is like no other. She gets you to places you didn't know existed. Needless to say I love Forever Him!!! Lila and Kane with a K are such contrast in characters, but Jeanne knows just how to bend them and shape them to create the perfect story. They are kinetic energy. So intense, yet so sweet and tender it could make you weep. Some scenes and chapters I reread several times, oh my, yes oh yes oh yes, they were tha ...more

Every morning Lila is in the coffee shop creating erotic novels on her laptop and one day a sexy man, Kane, catches her attention and he becomes the leading player in her fantasies. It becomes a daily ritual until the day she blurts out “I want you to touch me” and she flees the coffee shop in embarrassment.

She is distracted and about to be hit by a car when Kane comes to her rescue which leads to a day of delight where can live out her fantasies.

Oh what a hot, sexy journey Jeanne St. James lead

Let me start off by saying that you need to 1-click this novella. It's hot, it's steamy, and while it's pure fantasy, I really enjoyed it. I'm also currently cursing the author out. Guess you'll have you read it to find out why!!!

Please remember that safe, sane, consensual are always the rules for BDSM. Don't go into any scene without taking about it first, establishing your safe words, and remember that romance novels are pure fantasy!!!

I loved this obsessed novella and I really enjoyed reading it. It's super sexy, steamy, hot, short and with a little twist in the end. You will fall in love with the characters in this book and you'll eat this book for breakfast.
I hope there will be a second book because I want to read more about what will happen with Lila and Kane with a K.
I truly recommend this novella to all the readers!!!
Thank you Jeanne!!!

That book was so... so... sexy.
Lila is a girl that was obsessed with one man Kane, but for some time she was only taking short glances at him in the morning. But what will happen when he would feel the same about her?
I relly loved the tension between Kane and Lila.
Will she say know during they short encounter with BDSM and making love?
Can't wait for book 2.

Have you ever been obsessed with someone? If not, Jeanne St. James can tell you how it feels. How visceral your feelings are as you watch him, day in and day out. Lila has Kane memorized down to his every movement. He's her muse and so much more. What a blazing hot romance! It's a must read, quick and steamy!

Written with the same expertise I found in her previous books Ms. St. James did it again with this steamy hot novella. The hotness factor felt even more increased through the immediate soul deep connection which somehow formed between the characters. Great writing. A very enjoyable short read.

I am shocked. I keep asking how something so short could have been so very very good. This is an amazingly well developed, intertwining story that should surprise you with the ending. Very well written. Disappointed that this is not longer. It's erotic.
