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


The same week every year he comes to my little resort in Maine for five days, then disappears. His darkness, his demons, intrigue me and I need to know his story.

I hope he shows up again this year, because I’m determined to talk to him, make him see me and not look through me like I don’t exist. Make him realize I’m

I absolutely love the Obsessed series! Its a series full of fun, crazy sexy, hot novellas.

Grace owns a little resort, and every year Nick comes up for a week. He doesn't really speak with her, just gets his keys and goes to his cabin.

This year, however, she's ready to give into her lust and see if she can tempt him into a delicious time. Little does she know his plans are very similar...

Pick this up and enjoy!!

I'm a sucker for kinky sex, what can I say? And Jeanne St. James knows how to tell a story with plenty of play, debauchery, and good old-fashioned naughtiness. I didn't even know what a tawse was before I read this book, and now all I can think about is buying my own and testing it out. The sex is HOT, the need, the craving is raw and full of passion and the hero, well... I'd let him do whatever he wanted to me too, just saying. Nick... what can I say about Nick? The man has demons, big, dark, h ...more

This is a very fast paced intensely sexual BDSM novella. If you have any triggers please be cautious.

Grace owns a small resort in Maine. Her parents started this resort when they were younger, when her mother died her father kept it up now he’s gone and she feels she needs to keep it open to keep their memory alive.

Grace has a lot of feisty inner dialogue. She has Maggie her dog for companionship but that ca

Needing Him
An Obsessed Novella, Book 3
By: Jeanne St. James
Narrated by: Ava Lucas, Aaron Shedlock

I enjoyed everything about this wonderful story, Jeanne St. James is a gifted author, she fit a lot of story into this novella sized book, the storylines she created are interesting and captivated me from start to end. I adored these two characters, they are realistic and easily relatable. Grace runs a resort in Maine, it is off season but she is exp

Obsession. Need. This is what both Grace and Nick have, but for several years have not acted on it. Nick comes to her cabins to stay for a week once a year, and now it's the 3rd year, and she has plans for him. He hasn't spoken to her, but there is something that draws her to him. Nick is looking for the quiet that the cabin brings him, and while not the ideal spot this year in his mind, he has to go back to see her. So this story starts. These two are destined for steamy passion, but Jeanne St ...more

This is one sexy as all get out novella that brings to mind caramel and hot fudge dripping decadently over a plate of rich chocolate ice cream that you just want to devour one lick at a time until you can go back for seconds or thirds. Grace is an only child who was left a series of cabins in nowhere Maine by her deceased father. Due to the off the grid location, she does not get very many people visiting. However for the past few years, there has been one man, Nick, who has been coming regularl ...more

These Obsessed novellas are quick and extremely hot reads! Ms. St. James can write some hot scenes!

This story is about Nick and Grace. Nick has a dark past and Grace is bored with her life in a small town. Nick has been coming to Grace's cabins every year for the last 3 years. He made reservations on his last visit for this year and Grace has just been waiting to see if he shows up. In past years, Nick has been quiet, brooding and keeps to himself. Grace thinks Nick is hot and hopes that this is

Jeanne St. James has a hit with Needing Him. This was a compulsive read that I couldn't put down. In fact I read it from front to back in a single sitting, way past my bedtime. But it was totally worth it!

I love St. James' characters. Grace is looking for something, but she's not quite sure what. She knows something's missing, but she has her little resort in Maine and Maggie, so that enough right? Then he starts showing up every year for the same week. It's the off-season, so she's glad for the

Grace’s parents have passed away so she operates the cabins in Maine that they owned. The location is beyond quiet as cell phone service is sparse and wifi nonexistent. Every year she looks forward to the annual visit of Nick who always comes for one week in the off season and hopes that this will be the year he notices her and take care of her sexual drought.

Nick has a tragedy in his past so he escapes every year to have this time to grieve. This year he is almost healed and the only reason tha

For a short novella this one really packs a punch. In the beginning there were some laugh out loud moments. Towards the end there was a moment that brought tears to my eyes. The middle, however, had me reaching for the fan and putting it on full blast. Wow! There are quite a few really hot (and intense) sex scenes. I loved the end, both Grace and Nick getting what they needed, but I was also sad too. I wanted more of these two, and I wanted to know what their future holds. Guess I'll just have t ...more

The story is all about the 4th time that Nick and Grace met then got together. This is just a short read so I won;t go into the spoilers. This is an okay read for me, though I must admit, I'm not much into BDSM stories, but this I believe is a nice romance - although for some I guess there is nothing nice about BDSM - especially for those who are into it. Nice plot and great character development for both characters. This is great for a short beach read.

Dark, hurt and lost soul. But there is faith and hope. Only her. Only me. If only for a moment, I feel whole again.

Beautiful novella and everything you need is to buy it, relax and enjoy it. Hot sex, desires, passion and emotions, perfect ride.
I absolutely and truly recommend this novella to every reader!!!

I love all Obsessed novellas and I become obsessed with them, waiting for the next one. And this is my favorite one so far.

It had just the right amount of BDSM for me. It was able to have that taboo side while still saying sweet and romantic. Nick's story is heartbreaking, and Grace was just the thing he needed to heal himself. My only complaint is I didn’t want it to end. I want more. But I think that is more a compliment than a complaint. Very well written and I highly recommend to those w

The Obsessed Novella Series by is so freaking dirty you guys! I give this series (books 1-4) a total of ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ stars. Each book can be read as a standalone but they all have one thing in common and that is strong female characters who aren’t afraid of testing their limits. Each book surprised me in a great way and some left me needing more. I wish there was more romance and less erotica but I liked how each book took on a different insight into love, sex, chemistry, finding yourself and what i ...more

This time Nick has left his demons behind and once the two come together the sex is out of this world.

Another great novella in the Obsessed books by Jeanne St James. This book is so very, very hot - it really should come with a warning label.
Nick and Grace have such great sexual chemistry together, and even though this is a quick read, Jeanne's writing took me right into the story. I really did need to fan myself at the end.
Cannot wait to read more by this great author.

Whew! Another hot and sexy novella from the Obsessed Series by Jeanne St. James. These are such great stories. Really easy to get engrossed in and lose track of time. Two amazing characters with such intense passion you can almost hear the sizzle! You can't go wrong with this series or this author!

Grace is obsessed with her yearly customer Nick. He comes to stay for a week to her middle of nowhere resort. He's broody and likes to be left alone. This year the hotness is on! Grace needs to land Nick and boy does she ever! Or does he land her?? I really enjoyed that even if it seems a little too fast for love it does have long standing background and deep feelings. Perfect mix of naughty and nice :) ...more

Nick has Ben renting a cottage from Grace for the same week every year for the past three years. Whenever he comes, he jeeps to himself and doesn't talk to anyone, least of all her. That all changes this year when the becomes very personable with hgwer and even flirts! They embark on a BDSM style sexual relationship, but will out last longer than his one week visit?

A quick, sexy, kinky, read. This is the second book, I have read by JSJ, and it did not disappoint. I enjoyed the "voice" of Grace, it was genuine, honest, and funny. Nick has come once a year (for the past three years) to find solace, heal. This year both Grace, and Nick mean to further their association with each other. What results is more than sexual chemistry. I will be looking forward to JSJ's next creative endeavor.

I love these hot short stories

I have read everything she has written that I can get on Amazon. But the Obsessed Novellas are my favorite. They hit fast and hard with sex and feelings between the only characters in the story. I understand why they aren't longer, I just wished they were.....

This wonderfully written story pulled me in from the very first page with the well laid out plot and the characters were so well fleshed out that Nick and Grace made me feel like I was sitting in their livingroom watching as their story unfolded! Another great read by Jeanne St. James!

Grace hides away in a remote place, never imagining she'd meet someone like Nick. Nick has his own secrets, and needs his own method of escape. Together, they find something unexpected, and I loved how this sexy, steamy novella gave us a taste of them together. I really hope there will be more to their story!

Ohhh...This one reminded me of a book I read a really long time ago about a guy who would stop at her hotel like every couple months and stuff and then they hook up. Similar plot in a KA book too, but heavier...this one is still a bit heavy on the reasons why he does what he does, but dang...the boy, I mean MAN can play!!!
