Review: DEADLY OBSESSION by Kristine Cayne

Title: Deadly Obsession

Author: Kristine Cayne

Source: ebook from author for review

Adult Read


When an Oscar-winning movie star meets a department-store photographer…

Movie star Nic Lamoureux appears to have a playboy’s perfect life. But it’s a part he plays, an act designed to conceal a dark secret he carries on his shoulders. His empty days and nights are a meaningless blur until he meets the woman who fulfills all his dreams. She and her son are the family he’s always wanted—if she can forgive a horrible mistake from his past. 

A Hollywood dream…

Lauren James, a widowed single mother, earns barely enough money to support herself and her son. When she wins a photography contest and meets Nic, the man who stars in all her fantasies, her dreams, both professional and personal, are on the verge of becoming real. The attraction between Lauren and Nic is instant—and mutual. Their chemistry burns out of control during a photo shoot that could put Lauren on the fast track to a lucrative career. 

Becomes a Hollywood nightmare

But an ill-advised kiss makes front-page news, and the lurid headlines threaten everything Nic and Lauren have hoped for. Before they know what’s happening, their relationship is further rocked by an obsessed and cunning stalker who’ll stop at nothing—not even murder—to have Nic to herself. When Nic falls for Lauren, the stalker zeroes in on her as the competition. 

And the competition must be eliminated.

My take...
Lauren James needs this one moment in time with Nic 'The Lover' Lamoureux to make a name for herself. No, no...not THAT kind of name for herself! Lauren wants to get herself out of the department store portrait studio and start doing freelance work. And taking Nic's pictures will only help her career. But gosh, here is the man, who had the starring role in all her fantasies since the 11th grade, even before he was a big time actor. She better not screw this up or it is back to taking pics of snotty nose kids.

Once Nic lays eyes on Lauren he realizes he has it bad for her. Spending an afternoon with her has him fantasizing about spending even more time with her. Not to mention fantasizing about the things he wants to do to her. What is it about her that gets his blood pumping in certain areas? He could have any girl he wants; he is Nic the Lover after all. Yet, Lauren is absolutely perfect and she is all he can think about.

But, when the relationship starts to heat up…so does the threats from his biggest stalker. This stalker has upped the ante and is now making threats against those that Nic loves and now Lauren. Will Nic give up on the idea of love to keep Lauren safe? Or will he man up and find out who this deadly stalker is to protect those that he cares most about?

Deadly Obsession was such a good book. But note to those who read it: HOT, STEAMY romance is what you will find within the pages of this well written book. Hot romance that had me blushing tremendously…steamy romance that made for a VERY interesting read…great written characters and a fabulous storyline. This book has it all. But also…it had that perfect mystery I find I am enjoying more and more in the books I read. I love playing detective right along with the characters. Of course I realized who the stalker was long before the characters, but it was interesting watching it all play out.

I so enjoyed this story and think that you will too. I will definitely be looking into more of Kristine’s work. But will only read it when my children are not around. Yes, I made that mistake and it only hampers the enjoyment of the read. If you decide to read Deadly Obsession, let me know what you think of it.
