Rating: 5 Stars
Synopsis: Lotus Bishop has sworn off dating the same kind of guy. After seemingly endless run ins with heartbreak and unsatisfactory relationships she knows that "her type" is totally the wrong type. So her and her best friend decide to make a list. One that will highlight all the unsavory things she typically goes for, like cockiness and arrogance.
Beckett Frickin Cole is totally the wrong type of guy for Lotus. Not to mention he's her older brothers best friend and has been treating her like a kid sister her entire life. Lotus knows that getting involved with Beckett is the worst decision she could make, still she can't seem to stay away.
Review: I want to keep this one short and sweet kids. I loved this book! I read this puppy in three days and I can not even remember the last time I was so hooked I stayed up until 2AM to finish something, but alas my beauty sleep was most defiantly cut short by Beckett Cole.
From the moment this fictional man walked into my life and a drunk Lotus' apartment I was hooked. Then I found out he had a motorcycle, tattoos and a tragic past...can someone bring me new panties?
Seriously though this was a really awesome love story, filled with heart, humor and a few touching teary eyed moments, all laced with a good amount of passion and sex.
I feel like as a reader I don't ask for much, just the simple things like well developed characters, a plot line that never falls flat, and a few moments that make me want to swoon. Obscured Love delivered on all of that and more. It is really hard to believe that this is the author's first novel! I am very excited to read more from her and hopeful we can maybe revisit some of these characters again.
Like Bentley and Myra (was there a thing going on there I feel like there might have been?) and Auggie/Gus I really need to know what happened to him and why did Lotus call him a hero? I want more from this world. I wanted more from this book, I was sad to see it end and yet glad for the lovely way it finishes.
That's really all I have to say about this one. There aren't any points that I want to pick apart, no bad stuff that stuck out and nagged at me throughout the plot. I just really enjoyed this book and I really hope that there is more from this author in the form of a series going forward.
Beck needs a place to crash until renovations are finished on his new house. The lukewarm reception he receives from Lotus amuses him and reminds him of all the happy and fun times he spent with her and Bentley, her brother, during their childhood. She’s still the sassy and stubborn girl he remembers, but now has a mature body he can’t help but notice. Beck finds the long and detailed list of criteria she and her friend Myra have compiled with regard to men to avoid and notes that he embodies most of them. His heavy emotional baggage still weighs him down two years after the death of his fiancée. He blames himself for what happened, and refuses to even entertain the idea of a relationship with a woman.
Avoiding each other is nearly impossible while sharing a small living space. Lotus and Beck gradually grow closer, and soon the physical attraction between them can no longer be ignored. Even though they both know the other is off-limits, they agree to a short-term physical relationship to scratch a mutual itch. What begins as a fun way to pass time and blow off steam soon blossoms into feelings Lotus tries her best to tamp down. Not only is Beck her brother’s best friend, he has made it crystal clear numerous times that he doesn’t want to ever develop affectionate feelings for a woman ever again. With this in mind, Lotus fights to build and maintain a wall around her heart to avoid permanent damage when their tryst inevitably ends.
For his part, Beck struggles to emit a vibe of indifference as he gradually experiences emotions and feelings similar to the ones that nearly destroyed him not too long ago. But as Lotus slowly breeches his barriers and crushes his defenses, he questions his decision to keep her at arm’s length. For the first time in years, he’s attained a level of inner peace he never thought he’d feel again.
When his past unexpectedly collides with his present, Beck’s shell reappears. This deeply hurts Lotus, who puts her foot down and gives Beck a taste of what it felt like when he left without warning over a decade ago. It’s up to him to decide whether love is a risk worth taking, and he must act quickly before he misses his window of opportunity.
I seriously cannot believe this is a debut novel! Delilah Mohan expertly crafted a story that made me experience a bevy of emotions from one chapter to the next, and sometimes within the same one. On more than one occasion, I felt the urge to hit Beck upside his thick skull and then flipped to the next page only to burst into uncontrollable laughter when Lotus said or did something to get under his skin. I adored the slow burn between the two main characters. When they finally ignited into an inferno, I fanned myself with a huge smile and rooted for the flames to leap higher. I repeatedly felt as though I sat in a corner while scenes unfolded before me, which is evidence of the solidity of Ms. Mohan’s narration and her ability to create lifelike characters. I highly recommend this book and eagerly look forward to reading more from her in the future.
Honestly, this is one of my top five best debuts reads- and I'm a tough cookie to crack when it comes to liking new authors. I love Delilah and her writing is exceptional.
Beckett is a man that you'll love to hate, he's a protective a** but he has his reasons, just like every other alpha male, but this guy has a cute, adorable dog called Ruins so that makes him evern more sexier (He even talks to him, it's cute not weird)
Lotus is the pretty blue eyed girl who is also his best friend's little sister, she's forbidden fruit and has a do not touch label on her forehead, not literally. She's pretty, and men like to touch pretty things.
If you haven't read this book yet, you need to, I mean it!
