On an uncharacteristic whim, an obsessive-compulsive woman vacations at an island resort where she learns how to surrender to her disorderly, capricious, and wanton inner self.
Briana's pristine life has recently gone downhill after she realized her perfect marriage was a sham. Weighed down by the burdens of her impending divorce and the shame of being a "starter wife," the hysterically out-of-control Briana calls the number printed on a postcard for a limited-time offer at a distant lodge. Upon arriving at the sex vacation resort, Briana is confronted with all of her old hang-ups and throws herself into the pleasures of exhibitionism -- freeing herself from her heartbreaking past and the inhibitions that have always held her back in life.
What I thought:
Delilah Devline has quickly become one of my favorite Erotica authors, so I was really looking forward to reading Obsessed. However, it turned out to be a little too wacky for my taste, though the sensuality is smokin'!
When we first meet Briana Neeson, she has just been dealt a devistatingly life-altering blow by her husband of seven years, Jonathan. She is a truly disturbed obsessive-compulsive person, that just can't seem to break loose from her disorder. After watching her husband walk out the door without a backward glance, Bri calls her best friend, Heather, for advice. Heather's suggestion is to "stick a pin in the map and take a trip", since Bri can't remember the last time she did anything even remotely spontaneous. Plus, she can use the time away to relax and try to figure out what she needs to do now that Jonathan is no longer around.
A few days later, as Briana checks her mail, she finds a postcard inviting her to "The Island" for a private getaway that will be perfectly catered to meet her specific needs. She can't help her heated reaction to the hottie on the front of the invitation. What's wrong with her, that she's seriously thinking of taking this trip based on this guy's smoldering good looks? Bri can't believe she's even considering it!
Once Bri gets to the island is when the story begins to go wacky, but also where the smokin' hot scenes will have you reaching for your spouse/partner! They are what I enjoyed most about the book (of course!), as I just couldn't wrap my head completely around the storyline, it was a little too bizarre.
If you enjoy Delilah's books, you should definitely give Obsessed a try. Who knows, you may absolutely love it!
