Sandy's Spotlight - BOOK REVIEW - Obsession by Sharon Buchbinder
The following is my May 6, 2013, 5 Star Review:
Author: Sharon Buchbinder
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Length: Approximately 246 Pages
OBSESSION by SHARON BUCHBINDER is a fast paced romantic suspense that will have you sitting on the edge of your seat. This book has all the elements that I, as a romantic suspense lover, really enjoy. The plot is complex with two very gripping storylines coming together flawlessly and sexual tension that will have the reader sweating. Whew!
I must admit that the subject matter in this book is not something that I would normally read. Mexican drug lords? Well, I live in Arizona, so I get to hear enough about them on the news. Fanatical religious cults? This is something I personally find so taboo that it's just never been a priority to use my reading time on. I mean, really, what fun is that? Well, I'm here to tell you, you won't be able to put the book down. It's just that good.
There were also some supernatural elements introduced in this book that I really enjoyed. Getting down to the very basics, Good VS Evil? You bet, and I LOVED every minute of it. Even if this is not a subject matter that you normally read, take a chance. You won't be let down. I highly recommend OBSESSION by SHARON BUCHBINDER.
A year after a barbaric childbirth, complete with a near-death experience and an encounter with her guardian angel, Angie Edmonds is just happy she and her son, Jake, are alive. She's finally in a good place: clean, sober, and employed as a defense attorney. But at the end of a long work day, she finds herself in a parent's worst nightmare: Jake has been kidnapped and taken across the Mexican border by a cult leader who believes the child is the "Chosen One."
Stymied by the US and Mexican legal systems, Angie is forced to ask the head of a Mexican crime syndicate for help. Much to her chagrin, she must work with Alejandro Torres, a dangerously attractive criminal and the drug lord's right-hand man. Little does she know Alejandro is an undercover federal agent, equally terrified of blowing his cover--and falling in love with her.
