It’s not just a love story, it’s an obsession...


I’ve loved Bree my whole life. We were each other’s firsts when we were young and inexperienced, and I totally screwed up. I disappointed her, causing her to cry and run away. But over the years, I’ve learned, I’ve perfected, and I’ve dreamt of one day getting another shot with the love of my life.

This was the fourth obsessed novella. Bree and Noah's chemistry was off the charts! I enjoyed this short steamy romance. I received an ARC for an honest review.

Another home run from JSJ. This book was so damn dirty, my cheeks were on fire nearly the entire time. Noah and Bre were kids when they did the deed, popping cherries in a pool shed at the tender age of seventeen. But miscommunication and childish naivete got in the way of a high school romance, as well as anything into adulthood. Yet, their love, their obsession continued to burn through the years. Finally, the night before Bree's brother's wedding they finally have their shot at making it ...more

Each novella in the Obsessed series is a stand-alone, and can be read as such. This story focuses on a second chance romance, and the pain the main character caused the other from their past, but also how they grew from that experience. It was nice seeing the POV of both characters, and felt it added a much needed depth to the story.

Please note that I did receive an ARC of this book, and the opinion expressed in this review is my own.

I really enjoy the Obsessed novellas. They are quick but steamy reads! Noah and Bree together is just so, so hot!

Noah and Bree (Brianna) have known each other since they were kids. Noah has been in love with Bree and Bree has been in love with Noah since they were kids but each never told the other how they felt. They were each other's first kiss and each other's first..... However, Noah thought that he hurt Bree after their first time since she ran away crying. Bree ran away crying because she

This obsessed novella has to be my favorite of the series. There is so much packed into it. First loves, second chances, best friend's sister, trusting partners, sensual love, a little bdsm, I can't even begin to start giving my opinion! Bree and Noah are each other's first love. But when their first time goes awry, their disappointment keeps them apart. Now given a second chance, will they find their happiness? St James weaves an incredibly sexy story. These two are definitely in it for the ...more

This time it was a second chance short steamy read in the Obsessed series.
My problem with second chance romances is that the time the couple spend away from each other - either by choice or by circumstance - usually feel wasted. In this story however both characters concluded their time away was the time to grow up and reach their full potential as both of them understood they were too young to have a lifelong relationship when they first fell for each other. After experiencing everything they

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Some of us would love a do over from our first sexual. That’s the chance that Bree and Noah now have after Bree has avoided him for over thirteen years. They are both attending Bree’s brothers wedding and they are in the wedding party. Noah gets to escort Bree so she can’t avoid him forever.

Their first time together was very brief, both felt that they had let each other down and were never able to resolve it.

I voluntarily reviewed an advanced copy of this book. I have to say that this book is my favorite out of all the Obsessed novellas. I loved Noah and Bree ( Brianna)!! This is their second chance at love and Noah was not going to let it slip through his hands especially when he finally saw Bree for the first time in years, he knew she was his.

Bree isn't the sweet little girl he was in love with, they were each
others first and it didn't go so well and certain circumstances drove them away from

I fell in love with this story straight off the bat because I love BDSM I love a good romance and I also love love a little mystery to it also and it had all of that with it...

I LOVE Jeanne St. James' Obsessed Series. There's just something immensely gratifying about reading the entire thing in one sitting - which I've done with all of the books I've read so far in the series. Her characters and stories are so well developed, it's hard not to read them in a single session.

I couldn't help but to fall in love with Noah and Bree. I found it fascinating that each of them took a different route to end up in very similar places. It bates the question, if Bree hadn't watched

Bree and Noah were high school sweethearts and they lost their virginity together however it ended up with Bree fleeing the scene crying as they both believed they had disappointed the other. Noah was devastated so he started to witness a neighbor woman to learn how to please a woman and what he needed to be pleased himself but he didn’t know that Bree was watching.

For the past thirteen years Bree has avoided him but she has been honing her craft so that she can give him the sexual experience

I voluntarily read an arc of this book provided to me via Booksprout for a fair and honest review. I love, love, stories that begin with a child hood love. So this book was off to a great start for me. I don't want to give any spoilers but I am a wee bit confused. The switching from alpha to sub to alpha is throwing me off an it raises questions. Is Bree a dominatrix in all of her sexual encounters or is this solely reserved for Noah. I also read Noah as more of an alpha but I think his

I am Obsessed with this series and what a nice surprise to see a woman in the driver’s seat. Bree and Noah were each other’s firsts. After a not so stellar performance, Bree ran away crying and Noah went to seek his education elsewhere. Years pass and they are both reunited for Bree’s brother’s wedding. Noah has never lost his feelings for Bree and is willing to do whatever is necessary to win her back. Bree has some secrets of her own. What will Noah do when he finds out the truth as to

Wow! Bree (Brianna) and Noah heat up the pages! You may just need a fan nearby. This novella takes places over the course of one night. A misunderstanding in their youth caused Bree and Noah to go their separate ways for 13 years. Could their explosive reunion lead to a HEA? You'll have to one click this to find out for yourself. I will say I wish it was longer. I want more of Bree and Noah and to see how their future pans out. However, with it being a novella, I knew going into it that would be ...more

I don't really understand novellas. I think of them as more short stories and of course I always wish they were longer if they are good. This one definitely had me wishing it were longer. This book is super hot and has such a wonderful back story. This hot tale could have been so much richer with more chapters and I was left wanting so much more from these characters. Even the end left me wanting more and wishing for just a few more chapters or maybe an epilogue. If you like your tales short and ...more

Loving Her is an awesome read written by Jeanne St. James. It is the story of Bree and Noah. Bree and Noah grew up together and were each others firsts. Each thought they had disappointed the other and they went their separate ways. Neither forgot the other though. They were brought back together for Bree's brother's wedding, where Bree was the Maid of Honor and Noah was the Best Man. Their attraction to each other is still as strong as it was when they were younger. Where will their attraction ...more

If you've ever read a Jeanne St. James book you know you are in for a treat. Loving Her is my favorite novella in this series so far. Bree and Noah were sweet hearts when they were young and have reconnected at Bree's brother's wedding. Fate has brought them back to each other. Will they get back together or go their separate ways. This is a well written, sexy, second chance novella with great characters and a Dom/Sub treat that will keep you hooked till the last page. I received a free copy of ...more

What a steaming hot 4.5 star read. This is a true second chance romance where two souls were together, albeit it was great their first time, but they grew individually during their time apart. When they reunite years later they come to realize what the other wants and needs to create some explosive chemistry to a happily for now ending. I deducted .5 for not knowing what happens in their relationship. If you looking for a hot & sexy quick read this is definately your book.

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 it means ...more

This is by far my favorite book in the series! It's a super steamy second chance novella with two strong characters and a great story line that shows how one incident when they were 17 started them on the path to the adults they would become and the lives they would live. Neither imagined how their paths would one day cross again.

I am voluntarily reviewing an ARC of this book. This is my honest opinion.
Nicki - The Overflowing Bookcase
This steamy novella finally gives the reader a chance to see not only a submissive male character and an alpha female but the dynamics of a switch. Noah and Bree have been in love since they lost their virginity together, but Bree.never felt she could satisfy his submissive tendencies, but once her Domme mode comes to the surface the chemistry is off the charts. I love these novellas, JSJ never disappoints and the readers always come away satisfied.

Loving Her (An Obsessed Novella) by Jeanne St. James is a short steamy romance. This second chance romance is about Bree and Noah. Each others first and then a misunderstanding rips them apart. Now years later brought together again both have the perfect plan to win back the other. Fun, sexy and steamy, Loving Her is an enjoyable read. I am posting an honest review after reading an ARC copy of this book.

This book was different than other books I have read, but that's a good thing. It was nice to see a Female Dom and a male Sub. You don't see very many stories with these gender roles. Usually it is the other way around. I hope to read more like this.

Another hot one from Jeanne

This is a short one sitting read and is it hot. I love these stories that start off with a bang and don't let up until the end. This is a second chance story line where the two MC never stopped loving each other. I surely hope she continues these books as they are some of my favorites.

I loved Noah and Bree's story. This was a great second chance romance. Excellent writing and vibe - fits in perfectly with the other Obsession series reads, it can be read as a standalone. Excellent characters and plot - well written and developed. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.
