The final instalment in Meik and Sebastian's story finds Meik's life spiralling out of control after Sebastian walked away...

I started reading this series expecting smut and erotica and that's exactly what I got in the beginning but as the story progressed it turned into so much more....a love story past and present.

The more I read about Meik the more I fell for him.Definitely not an easy character to love,although even when he was being an asshole,I couldn't help liking him.If ever there was a

Meik and Gabe… what a romance! Authors Quin and Perin capture all the lush promise and desperate passion of a first love, and pour it into Obsessed #4. That we know from the start it’s doomed? *wails* Now I understand why Meik’s so broken.

The flashback scenes in this episode are wonderful and we get an intimate look at Meik as a young adult. He vacillates between the brash and confident man he shows the world, and the man he allows himself to be with Gabe. Meik as the sweet seducer, the caregive

5+++ How much can my heart handle ... it hurt, it broke, it shattered.

Amazingly written story!! Harsh, emotional... going sooo unbelievable deep... to the deepest parts of my emotions... so much of everything...

Meik hit rock bottom... realizing he did the worst to Sebastian and it’s irreversible...
He can’t get his life back on track.
Finally we get to know the real Meik... and goshh is he something!!

The previous parts showed a hint... even small... I felt it... there is more...much more than only

Quin and Perin offer a unique perspective on the erotica and romance genre. It's a refreshing and powerful change. As with each previous novella, the character development and world building is continually strengthened. This novella did have less steaminess to it than the others, however the emotional intensity couldn't be better. I do wish this had been longer, but that's mainly because I don't want it to be over. I have completely fallen in love with the characters and the story these two gift ...more

Sobbing. I'm just ... sobbing. Partially because this series is (for now) over (although maybe we can talk the authors into another one ...). I'm also crying because GABE!!!! OMG GABE!!!!

The love story of Meik and Sebastian began as lust with no emotion, no meaning. Imagine stubborn Meik's surprise when he actually starts falling for the kid, but due to past pain, he fears "falling for" someone ever again. Sebastian, however, isn't so easy to forget.

We get a ton of backstory on Meik here, espec

Review by The Blogger Girls .

This installment follows the theme of jumping back and forth between the wreck Meik’s life has become since he screwed things up so spectacularly with Sebastian and showing what happened ten years ago with Gabe (the sole reason behind Meik’s current issues). The authors did a great job creating a character you can love to hate and hate to love, that’s for sure. Meik is such a total jackass through most of the current time of this story, but we see an entire different

This is the last one of this series and don't worry about a happy ending. It has a happy ending.
Though it felt like a HEA, from what I read about Meik, it was a promise of a HEA.
Though this is actually Sebastian and Meik's story, Gabe's story outnumbered Sebastian in this installment. We finally got the story about Meik's backstory and why he's like that. Sure he's an a**hole for Sebastian, but sometimes, memories and hurt stays forever.

My only complain is that the ending wrapped up a bit rush,

My heart broke for Meik. The flashback scenes of him and Gabe made it a lot easier to forgive Meik's previous behaviour. They were so perfect together, young and sweet and in love.
I really enjoyed the final part of this series. It really helped me understand Meik. I'm glad for the way it finished.

I really enjoyed this. I highly recommend reading all 4 parts together (soon to be released as a set) because this really is a serial and each book relies on the previous for full enjoyment. Particularly this edition which ties up all the plot lines of the earlier books.

Those that have read the other books might be disappointed that Sebastian makes such a brief (but important) appearance in Obsessed. #4 focuses on the (up to this point) mysterious Gabe. The book also gives great insight into Mei

Meik was redeemed in my eyes with this final installment.
Finally realizing he really needed Sebastian in his life after being in denial and doing everything he can to overcome it. He succumbed to the inevitable. Finding Seb and reading that final scene closed my throat up and made my heart ache at the same time. Flashbacks with his times with Gabe and the conclusion to their story gave Meik's character much depth too. It made the story complete because there was closure. I loved these

Wow! This series has kept me on my toes, and eager for more, as I’ve read each installment. Honestly, I didn’t think it could get better than part 3, but Quin and Perin showed me it could. I don’t want to get all spoilery on you all – but you guys – all the answers!! I had a love/hate relationship with Meik throughout the series and at the end of book 3 I found myself softening a bit, then face palming. This last book really pulled the whole story together and let’s just say I kinda love Meik no ...more
This one is probably my least favorite only because I needed more of Sebastian. The extras in the Quin&Perin Dungeon just were not nearly enough. I NEED MORE!!!

But damn...Meik pulled at the ole heartstrings. I love a struggling asshole finding his way. <3

And to say I was a blubbering mess at the end would be putting it mild.

This is not your usual romance but it's still about old love New love and second chances. Meik will frustrate you and you'll want to kick his butt but in the end you finally understand his reasons for being an ass. And as always Sebastian is the "medicine" that just might heal Meik. A perfect ending to the perfect not so perfect love story. ...more

Sebastian finally confessed his love to Meik. However, the answer he received, forced him to leave and completely disappear from the life of the man who stole his heart. And although Meik quickly understood that he had committed an unforgivable mistake, when being drunk he called Sebastian by the name of his ex-boyfriend, he is neither able to fix it nor explain himself, as the young, homeless musician vanished into thin air.

Okay, thank you. This was THE book, however, I did miss Sebastian.

I loved Gabe. It all made so much sense. Since I read all 4 books in less than 24 hours, I might have been spoiled. I can't imagine having to wait in between books. I'm not sure what that experience would have been like, but binging was so worth it. I liked each book progressively more, and now, at the end, I understand Meik and I have come to really like his character. I loved how Sebastian pulled him out of his funk and made hi

Who knew Meik had that in him....not I...I hoped..BUT, these novellas were supposed to be pure less...but what a wonderful surprise to find out that Meik was WAY more than this super Alpha Dominant guy who treated people not necessarily like dirt but like they were there to serve him. Losing Sebastian brought on this trip to Meik's past and brought us to the understanding we needed for WHY he was the way he was. I liked Gabe, I was intrigued by Sebastian but in the end, Me ...more
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book.

This is book 4 in the Obsessed series, and you MUST read book one through three before you read this one. You need to know how Meik ended up in this position. And they are all 5 star reads from me! I would STRONGLY recommend you don't read these unless you have all 4 parts in your possession. They are addictive, and cliffhangers and you will NEED that next part so badly, it will hurt. So, yeah, all FOUR parts, ya hear

Quin & Perin continue to surprise with the fourth book in the Obsessed series. The series concludes in a very unique way, the focus shifting more to Meik’s origin story and keeping us on our toes until the very end!

After the utterly evil cliffhanger of book 3, it’s no surprise that Meik and Sebastian have had a falling out of sorts. The L-word is still something Meik has a lot of trouble accepting, and he fights it. So hard. Yet he finds out to his despair that no amount of drinking is enough t

Meik&Sebastian: Obsessed # 4 is the fourth and final book in the series.  The plot has been a continuation from book to book, so you will need to read the series in order. The third book ended with a big cliffhanger, and the fourth book begins two months after the event.  Meik has been dealing with the consequences of his actions and having a hard time coping.  As a result, he’s been drinking, hooking up, and r

I feel so...gutted. After three episodes of hard-core erotica, the authors take off the gloves and dig into emotions. Deep emotions that make me so angry and sad and ultimately relieved.

This book was like a tower-drop ride at an amusement park - ratcheting the tension up and up and up and up and then BAM, you're at the bottom and THE END and your heart is in your throat and you left your stomach at the top and then all of a sudden it passes you on the way down and your heart and stomach slam int

I was really looking forward to reading this final book of Meik and Sebastian’s serial. Book three ended on Sebastian walking out on Meik. Which was a great cliffhanger. I loved more of Meik and Gabe’s young love which explains more about what turns Meik into the hard unlovable man he has turned into. Unfortunately the ending was a huge let down. It was lacking Meik’s outpouring of his feelings for Gabe and Sebastian. Poor old Sebastian was given a brief account of what made Meik tick. Where was ...more

I really like Quin/Perin stories, it's something you can see if you follow me. I've been read almost every book they have. I know their style and I LOVE IT. But this series... God, so fucking frustrating. This ending was the most unsatisfied end I've read the last months so far. This was supose to be a Meik/Sebastian love story, and it wasn't. I know how much Meik loved Gabe (his ex) than he does for Sebastian. I really hate the way Meik treated Sebastian. Like

I so don't want this to be over!

Watching Meik develop over the series has been amazing. I hated him in book one, but at the same time, I could feel the vulnerability underneath. In each installment, we've seen more and more of the man behind the mask. In book four, we finally get the backstory of Gabe and what happened to turn Meik into a bitter man. I loved getting to know Gabe a bit and my heart broke right alo

The reader is able to build up a picture of the characters and watch them grow and develop. This was the perfect end to this series of books.

In this last book of The Obsessed series, Meik🐺 really messed up, and he's paying for it with a broken heart, obsessive drinking, and insomnia.
He called Sebastian🐶🎻 by Gabe's name. Gabe was the love of Meik's life, and he died, years ago. Sebastian🐶🎻 was not Gabe, but Meik🐺 was in love with the young man. Meik🐺 just didn't realize it yet. Sebastian🐶🎻 left Meik🐺, broken hearted, and he tries hard not to be found.

What a comeback… The authors delivered on my wants, after the previous 3 books. In this
final installment they:
1 - make Meik much more human. He literally falls apart after Sebastian leaves him and then
he digs himself out of the gutter.
2 - admit Meik’s an ass. Literally - there’s a chapter titled “Meik’s an ass”! I think this
installment was best because he turned his hate on himself. There was very little of his snark
and sass to Lillie, and zero to Sebastian.
3 – give us a little peek into Sebasti
So I’ve said from the start of the series that it need to come with a warning and book 4 lives up to that but this time for a different reason. This should come with a free packet of Kleenex for every reader. I loved to hate Meik from the very beginning but in book 4 we get to see the real him and the reason he is how he is. I ended up changing my mind about him big time. He is still a dick but maybe not as bad as I originally thought .
