Everything changed the night our eyes met across the room. His green gaze upon me prickled my skin with uncustomary warmth while my peek beneath his cuff—of a riot of color on his wrist—sparked my insatiable curiosity. Tall and mysterious, Kader was a man whose secrets I longed to know.

Little did I realize that the night we met was only the beginning—the beginning to the

This was even better than the first one! Watching the dance between Kader and Laurel is so interesting. I'm trying to figure him out at the same time she is. I'm really enjoying the weaving in of familiar characters - I don't want to say any more than that and ruin anything. In true Aleatha fashion, she left the story at the perfect part to leave you wanting more! I'll be over here (im)patiently waiting for book 3! ...more

I was once again spellbound by the second book of Aleatha Romig’s Tangled Wed series, Obsessed. This was a page turner with all the suspense, intrigue and edge of your seat interactions between Kader and Laurel. Revelations are made about Kader and he continues to surprise me with his one minute caring for Laurel and the next he just might kill her. Their chemistry is off the charts and the ending once again left me with an “I can’t believe that is happening” moment. I can’t wait to see where th ...more

Obsessed: preoccupied with or haunted by some idea, interest, etc. : being in a state of obsession. That is exactly me. I'm obsessed with the Tangled Web series by Aleatha Romig with Obsessed being book number 2.

Aleatha carefully and intentionally draws the reader in with Laurel and Kader's story. There are so many layers to our tragically beautiful Kader and Aleatha literally teases her readers by lifting one sleeve at a time. Obsessed is a wild combination of mystery and mayhem with Kader stan

-The yearning to be close to her was like nothing I’d ever known.

-I was drawn to the way she looked at me- saw me, drawn to how it was different than with anyone else.

OMG have you been Aleatha'd is at the end of each book description? Who knew this would be a spin off of Web of Sins series. However you don't have to read that one to read this one but it would help with the characters, Aleatha does a great job intertwining them.

“Why aren’t you repulsed?” “Why would I be?” “Because I’m grotesque.”


Obsessed is the second book in the Tangled Web series and starts right where we were left in Twisted.

Laurel is hunted, her former colleague and sex friend has been killed and Kader, paid to eliminate her has turned protector.

They will leave the basement they are hiding in to get to Kader’s lair and try to find some answers.

Who wants Laurel’s death?

Why do they want to stop her research?

I know I’m in the minority with rating but for some reason, I can’t fully connect to Kader and Laurel. It maybe that the story is very busy with Laurel’s formula, her disappearance, deaths, threats, and Kader’s personalities. But a new revelation about Kader really intrigued me and added the essence of psychological suspense. The first half was alittle slow for me. I wanted more progression of the story with some more answers but it did pick up towards the end and definitely peeked my interest

Obsessed continued where Twisted left off. We got the back story of Kader and the things he went through that makes him the man of today. Unpredictable.

Laurel still defy every rules Kader set for her once they arrived at his house. She's always inquisitive but understandable since it's her life that's on the line. And the "undefinable relationship" of Kader and Laurel between the sheets is definitely hot!

Obsessed is more about the motive than the action, which is a nice spin on a psyc

OBSESSED is the second book in the TANGLED WEB Trilogy and each book must be read in order so please start with the first book TWISTED so you know exactly what is going on in this book.

I have to say that the first book had me second guessing everyone that was involved with Dr. Laurel Carlson and Kader himself. Thankfully we get some answers, although it comes along with some additional questions in this book.

"That's one thing you don't have to worry about. The devil himself couldn't keep me away from you."

Obsessed continues the Tangled Web Trilogy, and it is even more intense and addictive than the first book in the trilogy. Aleatha Romig is on fire with this series, delivering a sexy and thrilling story that will leave readers on the edge of their seats. The combination of her flawless writing with a fantastic storyline and intriguing characters makes this a story that should not be missed.

While the story was interesting, the plot had a very slow pace. The twists and turns were plenty but still nothing was figured out.
I found very abrupt the scene where Kader remembered his previous life.

What a tangled web that is being weaved.

Obsessed picks up where Twisted left off and a not all of my thousand questions are answered. If anything a whole new layer of this intricate web was added when we look back to the Chicago seven years ago. As an added bonus Kader is a mess. His thoughts are jumbled, he has perfected the Jekyll and Hyde and now that he is in his home his goals are skewed right along with his feelings. There is something about the doctor that speaks to him on thi

That ending, oh that ending has me so impatient for Bound. Obsessed was awesome. It focuses more on the characters but you do get a few pieces of the overall puzzle. It gives insight into Kader's past and why he's as closed off as he is as well as shows the progression of his and Laurel's relationship. Highlighting the decimation (not completely mind you) of the walls he has erected around himself. I enjoyed this installment of the series and cannot wait for the conclusion I know it's going to b ...more

Ohmylawwwd Aleatha you just done it again! You play with my head so good I hate you in the most loving way😂

One thing that always amaze me with Aleatha's writing is her details in intrigue. In this book two we get more secrets reveal. Pieces of the puzle reveal. You know what they say about knowledge is power? Well, with Obsessed giving out more knowledge, I have to read every word with extreme careful cause I hate to miss a thing from the intricate plot.

I didn’t want it to end *sobs*. I knew Aleatha would leave me hanging *wails*. Life is so unfair *stomps feet*.

Just like the ice around Kader’s house is melting drip by drip by drip, the truth is starting to be unveiled and the walls around his heart are crumbling.

The first reveal, I felt so stupid. How did I miss the connection? Once that penny dropped it was like I’d won the big money drop in Vegas. Penny, after, penny, after penny.

Oh my goodness.....Obsessed (book 2 of the Tangled Web trilogy) is absolutely FANTASTIC (said in an Oprah voice). Obsessed delves deeper into the main players Kader's and Lauren's stories. "Kidnapped" Lauren is still assistanting Kader as they together try to figure out who is after Lauren's formula and who put the hit out on her. As for Kader, the reader begins to dig deeper into who is as well as why he is the way he is. Lauren doesn't know whether to stran

How do you review a book which exceeds your expectations. A book that leaves you begging for more- Obsessed is one of those books. Correction, it’s not a book it’s a world I want to be invited to, a place where the story comes to life and characters are family.

Aleatha weaves a web of intrigue and suspense—a page turner. Answers are layered throughout while adding a another level of mystique of unknown.

Kader and Laurel are in hiding.
Still trying to figure out who’s after her research and who wants her dead.
Being together constantly has the sexual chemistry between them pulled so tightly with absolutely no give.
Whether they are butting heads or tangled in the sheets it’s always sizzling and it’s always hot.
Either way the outcome is explosive!
Ms. Romig gives us a little more insight into Kader and his past life.
Just enough to tantalize our tastebuds and leave us drooling for more.

The second book of the Tangled web continues with the story of Kader and Lauren with more twist and turns making us more intrigued about these two characters that have many lies and a past that keeps lurking around making them doubt and fear about each other, what they feel or where these feelings are coming from.

In Obsessed we see and understand more about Kader we still trying to figure some things out but it seems like we're getting closer to finally know what happened and why he is behaving

Obsessed continued on right where we were left off from Twisted. We got a deeper look into Kader’s character and peeled back some of the layers of this complicated man. We moved forward a little in the chaos that Laurel was entangled in. The author was so good at layering answers with bits from the past that help put the missing pieces together while adding more mystique and questions to the cluster of bewilderment and unknown in the present.
