Worth reading 😎

A story that readers looking for multiple cat and mouse chases, tables turning and a dash of sexual tension.

Tracking down one man while running away from her feelings for another. What's a woman cop to do? Keep looking. In Obsession by Patricia Rosemoor, police detective, Camille Martell is caught in a couple of cat and mouse situations. She's a cat in one and a mouse in the other.


Stubborn to the core, Camille remains determined to find an online sexual predator. She disregards orders, sets up a nice little handle for herself and goes perv hunting. Unfortunately, her target, Angel, proves elusive, and she ends up with no choice but to get help from Drago, a sexy private d...tective whose D game she Camille works hard to keep from drawing her back into his bed. She sets her mind to stop setting her eyes on his crotch, because, yeah, that always work.


When Camille and Drago aren't getting closer finding their creepy pederast, they're fighting the losing battle of extinguishing the hots they have for each other. The chemistry between Camille and Drago is palpable. Although I don't see why Drago was into Camille. The character is a hypocritical goody two-shoes. Sure, it's okay for to disobey her superiors, but let Drago bend a couple of rules, and she's all on his case—I'm a cop—that's illegal—waa, waa, waa. But, he's into her.


Rosemoor takes readers through a stable suspense plot with an element of romance. Given the way things unfold between Camille and the predator Angel, it would have been nice to have a little more of the antagonist's point-of-view. There are a few scenes, but I still wanted to know just a little more about any characterization complexities, a little more connections between his past, misogyny and psychopathy. Overall, the book could have fewer white and black hats, but the author did keep me interested in the main characters and the unfolding chases.


Angel does have a good mixture of methodical, diabolical and unhinged. He really strung Camille along and drove her over the edge, making the story worth reading.
