    Hot & Gritty Romantic Thriller!

    NEED ME (Dark Obsession, # 3) by Cynthia Eden February 22, 2015 Publisher: Hocus Pocus Publishing, Inc. 195 pages, approximately Romance: Contemporary, Suspense, Thriller, Military -- SYNOPSIS -- Innocent…or guilty? The cops think that Julianna Smith is a murderer. No one will listen when Julianna claims she’s innocent, and as the suspicions mount against her, only Julianna knows the truth…a killer is hunting her. Somewhere in the darkness, a stalker is closing in and preparing to deliver a final justice that she can’t escape. He’s her only option. Devlin Shade isn’t a man who trusts easily, and when Julianna Smith walks into VJS Protection, he’s well aware of her reputation—the sexy blond could be a cold-blooded murderer. Only when he looks at her, cold is the last thing that Devlin feels. There’s an instant attraction between them—hot, fierce, primal. And he agrees to take her case. He’ll be her bodyguard. He’ll keep her safe from the enemy hunting her, and he’ll also find out the truth about the mysterious Julianna. If she is a killer, he’ll turn her over to the cops himself. She can’t let him get too close… Julianna knows that she is walking a dangerous line with Devlin. She never expected to want him so much, and as they grow closer, she realizes that he’s working to uncover her secrets. But the secrets that she carries are worth killing for…and she can’t let anyone discover the truth, not even Devlin. Killer or victim… Soon the thin line between right and wrong is blurred. For Devlin, the case becomes personal, and all that matters is Julianna—keeping her safe and stopping the stalker who is on her trail. As he slides deeper into Julianna’s dangerous world, Devlin’s own darkness rises up. He’s played the good guy for so long, but now his mask is falling away. He isn’t controlled, he isn’t safe, and when Julianna is threatened, he will cross any line to keep her safe. NEED ME. Some needs can push you to the edge of sanity… -- MY THOUGHTS -- Devlin is the "S" in VJS Protection, in case you haven't already figured that out. Juliana is briefly introduced in WANT ME as a client of Sophie's. She was accused of murdering her husband. And now someone wants her dead. Hiring VJS, she's hoping to be kept alive until the true killer is uncovered and arrested. As always, Ms. Eden provides an exciting plot and easy-flowing story with fantastic characters, believable dialogue, natural interactions, and plenty of conflict (both internal and external), most of which were resolved in a timely and mature manner. I'm not sure if it's the fact that I've read this trilogy so closely together or just read enough of this suspense/mystery sub-genre, but I pinpointed one of the "baddies" immediately. The other one was not on my radar, in fact I was certain another person was neck-deep in it. There seems to always be an attempted vehicular homicide though, ha! At least no one's HOUSE blew up this time... just a car. When all the pieces are put together and presented about the night of the murder, I was not surprised in the least at Juliana's part and/or lack thereof in it. So, predictability was about average, but that did not detract from the story. It was exciting and enjoyable. The conclusion was solid, but I'd hoped to see even a glimpse or hint that Ethan may get a book... I think with the revealed attachment, he'd make an interesting story. Two thumbs up to this series, I'd recommended to anyone that enjoys a good, gritty, romantic thriller! ------------------------ Heat Level: 3.75 ------------------------ Score: 4.4 Stars: 4 ----------------------- -- ABOUT the AUTHOR -- Award-winning author Cynthia Eden writes dark tales of paranormal romance and romantic suspense.

    I usually don't like Romantic Suspence but Cynthia comes up with lots of twists to keep you guessing. I would recommend it.

    Need Me

    No one will listen and there is a stalker closing in so Julianna's only option is Devlin Shade but she can never let anyone discover the whole truth not even Devlin in this thrilling romantic suspense. Devlin isn't the trusting sort, but something about Juliana demands his protection and the reader can't help but get caught up in the smoldering passion that flows from the pages as Devlin tries to learn Julianna's secrets and keep her alive. The attraction between them is clearly combustible and soon their desires are heading toward the hot and steamy despite all the reasons that a relationship between them would be impossible. The strong, demanding characters draw readers in and refuse to let go while the fast past and smooth flowing plot thrills readers with lots of suspense, action and romance. Lots of edgy excitement and spine tingling tension builds throughout the story as someone plays a deadly game of stalking and murder and no one is safe but most especially Julianna. Past secrets and relationships are revealed which adds more spice to the story and unexpected twists and several possible suspects keeps everyone guessing. The well timed events ensure that there is never a dull moment ensuring that the readers can't put this story down and the well written scenes and details bring it all to life. The stories can be read individually but the overall connections between all the characters of this series adds depth and an another layer of intrigue to the stories that really keeps things interesting. I was completely caught up in this story, of course since I really wanted to read Devlin's story that's not surprising and I have to say that seeing Devlin fall was quite fun especially after the hard time he gave everyone else.
