Have you ever read a book from just seeing the cover, not really reading the blurb but diving head first into the unknown? Well, I did this with Dee Garcia’s Volatile Obsessions. The cover for the book just whispered “READ ME” to my black heart and I’m so glad I took a chance at this book.
I was hooked from the first page and couldn’t put this book down until I had read everything page, sometimes re-reading sections off the book. Dee Garcia is a new author to me so I was a little unsure about her writing style, but she has the ability with her words to keep you engaged with the story and the characters.
To all my fellow black hearted souls, this book has one off the best dark, addictive romances that I have read for a very long time.
This storyline will suck you in and catch you off guard when it delivers the many, many, OMG twists. Throughout the book I was left questioning which way this story was going to end, believe me I could nerve have predicted the ending. I was on tender hooks till the very end.
I absolutely connected with our main characters Lux Mercier and Roman King. Both characters are amazing in their own dark twisted way. Even with their dark hearts, these characters have a vulnerability that allows the readers to connect to the softer side.
Lux Mercier was such as strong character that I felt an instant connection to her. Her child life wasn’t the easiest and it left her with a resilience that was truly amazing to read. She has this smart mouth, sharp witted attitude that fitted this character to the T.
Roman King was the new alpha in town and he certainly knew how to make an impact. He oozed arrogance and sex appeal which made him down right sexy. He loved pushing Lux’s buttons and when he pushed the right button, the fire was ignited between the two characters. What I loved most about Roman’s character was the softness we got to see when he opened up himself to Lux. This was when I felt his true character shined.
Overall, this story took me by surprise. I wasn’t expecting to enjoy this dark romance as much as I did and I’m very much intrigued to see if this style of writing by Dee Garcia can be found in her other books. Be sure to check out this amazing read but be warned this book does cover some dark matters which might be uncomfortable to some readers.
