The story is about Jo (Josephine) who has recently split from her cheating boyfriend and even though she doesn’t want a relationship at the moment, she can’t help but become slightly obsessed with her new colleague, Dan. She knows professional and personal lives must be kept apart but she can’t help it. When Jo defends Dan in a meeting, she ends up in a whole lot of trouble and when confronted by her boss about her uncharacteristic behavior she panics and lies by saying she has a boyfriend. Unfortunately this lie sets off a continuous chain of events, and she finds herself needing get herself a fake boyfriend. Her best friend and roommate, Gabi, offers her a solution. That is, her brother, Marco. He may be annoying at times, but what the heck. She needs to secure her job and possible promotion. Marco means trouble for Jo. Marco has been a “pain in the rear” since high school plus he is annoying and far too full of himself! He’s cocky and conceited at times. Soon Marco is the least of her worries when someone starts to make threats against her colleague and boss, and Jo is the only obvious suspect.
Written in a dual point of view, you don’t really get an idea of who the other person is until the end. When reading from that other character’s view, you don’t get those feelings or ideas of who it could be.
That made me want to keep reading on so I could find out just who it was! I changed my mind so many times about who this other character was throughout the story.
I don’t think there is a review great enough for this story. It was greatly written, I can’t wait to see what’s to come.
Jo lives with her best friend Gabi and is working at a job that she loves. She is extremely attracted to her coworker Dan, but then again, every other female in the office is also. When she sticks up for Dan, during a meeting, her boss reminds her that there is an on fraternization policy. To cover her own hide, she tells him she understands and that she is very happy with her boyfriend. Now to find a “fake” boyfriend in time for a client dinner meeting with her boss. When she gets home, Gabi is there with her brother Marco. When she tells her about needing a boyfriend, Gabi volunteers Marco for the job. When the night of the fake date with her boss comes around, she starts seeing Marco in a different light, she always knew that he was good looking, but he acts like he actually cares. The more time they spend together the stronger the attraction towards each other is. So they decide to give this fake relationship a real shot.
There is one MAJOR problem, someone else has different ideas……..
Someone has a obsession with Jo. When threatening letters and packages start showing up to not only her boss, but then Marco receives one also. She knows what she has to do in order to keep everyone safe. Breaking it off with Marco was one of the hardest things she had to do. When the person makes themselves known to Jo, she is shocked!!!! Will she make it out unscathed and back into the arms of the man she loves? Or is this the end??? You will definitely want to read this book and find out. Once I started this book, I could not put it down!!!
Obsession was the first book I've read by Liz Bowers but it won't be my last. This book had a little of everything. Told in mostly first person POV of main character Jo, but a couple times we see inside the bad guys head. The story was very well written and loved the way things were described in detail but wasn't over done.
Jo Waters works in an office and she has a slight crush on a new coworker, Dan. We meet her in a meeting where she's speaking up for Dan, who's being blamed for the setbacks, which is out of character for her as she's the quiet type. Jo finally feels as though her life is back on track and things are looking up for her future in life and work. When she is reminded by her boss of the no fraternization policy, she realizes her lusting over Dan didn't go unnoticed like she thought, she quickly lies about having a boyfriend. Jo lives with her best friend Gabi and when she tells of her lie and a dinner invitation that has to do with her application for promotion, Gabi has the perfect solution her brother Marco. While thinking over having a fake date with Marco she starts to realise she may have feelings for Marco but she feels guilty as she doesn't want to cause any upset if things go south. When threats start to come in potentially framing Jo and causing her boss and Marco to be cautious she takes matters into her own hands. Will she be making the right decision? Who is behind the threats? Why are they doing this?
This story had love, suspense, drama and a little heartache but it was all needed for this story. Great read and I can't wait to dive into more from this author.
