Book Reviews

Review Roundup – September 29th to October 4th, 2020

I thought I only read one book this week, but it was actually two.

I only read two books this week, but they’re both from a series I’m thinking about writing a long post about. That has to count for something right?

Obsession by S.K. Lessly

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


Summer Dean kept a low profile for a reason, but that doesn’t stop her from catching Josh Cooper’s eye. It’s a little bumpy at first, but the two manage to make their way into a relationship. However, jealousy abounds when the world tries to keep them apart.

S K Lessly loves for her heroines to have trash home lives, but at least she didn’t kill somebody’s best friend this time. I’ll count that as a win.

That being said, whoever edited Desired should have came back to Obsession. Many a colloquialism was misrepresented.

I wouldn’t recommend this book to anyone who isn’t already reading this series. Up to this point none of them seem to connect to any of the other.

Still, it was an okay read.

Desired Too by S.K. Lessly

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Bring it all in

Raquel Waters moved back home to get away from things, but she ended up jumping right back into Angel Leonetti’s bed. Somewhere between the sex and Angel’s possessiveness, Raquel finds herself in the midst of a plot take out Angel as the head of his crime family. And Raquel can’t let that happen.

I liked that this book made the attempt to connect some of the others in the series, like Maxine and Mason from Ruined, and Drake and Georgia from Desired – this is actually a sequel to Drake and Georgia’s book. I did not like that at least one plot point was dropped, but here’s hoping that the next book, Obsession Too, brings all five of the series’ couples together.

Not as many grammatical mistakes, but I’m side-eyeing some of these dialogues. I would only recommend this for people who actually WANT to read the series.
