I just read Beautiful Disaster due to many recs on the jealous hero board and it was just incredible- the hero was so crazy in love with heroine and it was so much more special because he used to be a total one-night stand sort of guy before her-

I really liked how crazy possessive/jealous/protective he was when it came to her, so much so that he would sometimes become violent- any books with a similar hero who is obsessed and crazy in love with the heroine and also crazy possessive/jealous/protective, even sometimes violently so (I'm talking over the top here)- thanks!

This is one of my favorite themes too! I read Beautiful Disaster and loved it. I actually came across it when trying to find books similar to Elizabeth Reyes' books. Forever Mine and Always Been Mine had total possessive/jealous heros.

Good grief. That is possibly the most disgusting and unappealing cover I have ever seen on a book! I was interested but just couldn't even keep that page up long enough to investigate it further!

I know it isn't, but it looks like worms crawling on her tongue! Ewwww!

Try Kresely Coles books! They have this the Mcarrick if you desire and if you deceive. Also the best for this theme is a hunger like no other LOVE that book soooooo much!

Dog Lover- trust me that with this book you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover, everyone is giving it great reviews and the cover has nothing to do with the book, the hero has lots of tattoos so maybe that is whats on her tongue, idk

Bookgirl- I'll try those books, thanks!

Readwithabook- I also Loved A Hunger Like No Other- great book!

@Dog Lover
I do agree with you, the cover is one of the most horrible ever seen but the story is terrific!
I don't judge a book bu the cover but, like you, I couldn't stand the cover enough to click on that image only to know more about the plot. But after I read great reviews about it I thought I had to give it a try and it's now in my top list!

I can't seem to get into Dragon Bound. i started it a couple of weeks ago and it bored me so I read other things, came back to it and forced myself to read a bit more, but it was just as boring as ever. Did anyone else NOT like this book? Does it get better?

I enjoyed it but not to the extent the others had. For me it was a C+/B read. I don't know why I feel this way. At one point I thought there were too many inner thoughts which is my pet peeve. Maybe I couldn't enjoy it because it was so raved about that my expectations were too high. Ughh, I don't know.

Bella, try reading it again at some later point. Maybe you are just not in the right mood for it.

Bella, I am in the same case like you. I also do NOT like Dragon Bound. I found it boring as well. But, I like the Dragon series from G.A. Aiken.

I personally thought Dragon Bound was very good, the way he held her in a jealous, possessive hold while they slept was just so Hot! Any other recs? and I was wondering if The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie (Berkley Sensation) also has this type of hero in it, I've been hearing good things about it but I just want to verify that the hero in here is jealous/possessive and insanely in love...thanks!

re: if The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie (Berkley Sensation)

He loves her but it's one of those book where he tells her that he's not able to love her until the last few pages. He's a pussy cat kind of hero, very sweet and endearing. Not psychotically possessive or jealous if that's what you're looking for. Although everyone around him calls him mental for acting strange, with her he's quite endearingly sweet and fixated.

edit to add: I liked this book a lot and would def recommend it to anyone. However, not if you're looking for an over the top jealous hero. I wouldnt consider this guy an alpha.

The paranormal series about dragons by Shana Abe is good. The heros are crazy about their heroines.

Why are so many people suddenly either (a) reccing Beautiful Disaster, (b) mentioning that they've read Beautiful Disaster, or (c) asking for books just like Beautiful Disaster? At first I was thinking I might want to read it despite the fact that it doesn't really hit any of my buttons, but I'm starting to develop a decided aversion to the very idea of it.

I have seen it recced a lot lately. I don't get the "shill" vibe that I got from the EoSEoG mess, I really just think that a lot of people liked it.

Personally, I'd kinda like to try it out, but I can't see paying 5 bucks for an untested author, and none of my friends have it lendable. Is she an indie, I haven't even noticed.

readsalot-thanks for clearing that up about TMOLIM

Katherine Barley-I looked at the dragon series by Shana Abe and the in the comments for the first book, everyone was saying that the hero was an abusive, lying, raper- are the books stand alones? and which one of them is your favorite?

LOL! I actually wishlisted Beautiful Disaster a while back because I loved the cover (A Tapestry Tongue? How cool!) Nice to know it's probably a good book too.

I am no shill :)

I enjoyed Beautiful Disaster because it was a good story and an intense, passionate relationship. People are talking about it because someone rec'd it on the obsessive hero thread (this one apparently) and he is one super possessive obsessive hero. They are a bit dysfuctional though, they fight often and have some issues. It was different than a typical romance which is nice sometimes. It is in first person from her POV.

I have it available to lend, let me know by PM on Goodreads if you want to borrow it.

Totally believe the hype. I have been looking for a good read along these lines for quite awhile and have been disappointed time and time again... until Beautiful Disaster. LOVED IT! It totally scratched that good 'ole jealous Alpha Male itch! Wish I could find something comparable...

Yeah its true the hero is obsessed with the heroine and whether he forces her is up for interpretation. I liked the first one Smoke Thief and The Queen of Dragons. The books need to be read in order to make more sense. Abe always have heros who are fixed on their heroines and many times the heroine is not interested.

MeliaasB- I agree about BD, it was an intense, passionate relationship with a jealous, possessive obsessive hero- this is the type of book I like- I'm reading Forever Mine right now and I hope it becomes more intense and passionate

I guess I'm the opposite, I quite liked the cover of Beautiful Disaster, but not the book :P
The only other book I can think of like that off the top of my head is the Christine Feehan Carpathian book where Jacques was buried underground for twenty years or so and when he came out he couldn't function without Shea and had outbursts of violence at the thought of not being with her. Dark Desire (The Carpathians (Dark) Series, Book 2) I think is the one.
