When Rayven returns home for the summer she meets her new stepbrother, Finn. Neither are happy with their parents marriage and the last thing they want to do is play nice; but when they find themselves spending time together, there’s no denying the attraction between them. But what will happen once their parents find out what has been going on between the two? What kind of scandal will it become in the small town, and is it worth it if Rayven is just going to turn around and go back to school?
One of the biggest issues I had with the book is that it needs some editing work. While the proofreading was fine, there were some issues with confusing sentence structure and well, things that were just, weird…for lack of a better word.
"There was a large red barn off to the right, and then acres of nothing for miles around."
Secret Obsession is a very fast read and unfortunately its brevity leads to a lack of depth. The chemistry between the characters is palpable, but the storyline is largely predictable. If you’re looking for a quick semi-taboo romance, give this one a try; it just wasn’t really my cup of tea. This was my first book by this author, and while it wasn’t a hit with me, I’d definitely pick up another of hers.
Finn was the type of man that dreams were made of. A charming country boy. Handsome, hard working and loved his mama.
A freak in the sheets.
Raven knew he was everything she wanted. But he was her secret.
Raven was supposed to be off limits. Forbidden. (Goodreads blurb)
Alright, I’ll come right out and admit it, stepbrother-type novels are my guilty pleasures. They can be dark, gritty and all around sexy as all heck!! For sure Olivia Linden’s Secret Obsession does not disappoint one bit. Finn surprised me, although at the same time I had an inkling of an alpha somewhere from the way he reacted to his mother’s news of a stepsister moving in. As for Raven, her sweet disposition is perfect for Finn, the Ying for his Yang. As their attraction to each other intensifies, can they continue hiding it from their parents and friends? Will they be able to accept it? Mind blowing and captivating, I enjoyed every minute I spent with this novel and cannot wait to read another of Ms Linden’s novel.

You just had to love Finn, a good ole country boy. Quiet he kept to himself. He wasn't a womanizer or a partier. He did his work and then pretty much kept to himself. He just couldn't keep away from Raven. Raven was sweet, quiet and in some way a little unsure of herself. Everything about Finn just drew her closer until she couldn't resist anymore. Knowing their parents wouldn't be to happy if they knew what was going on. They had to keep what was between them a secret. As emotions and feelings build maybe it would be better if it wasn't a secret. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Finn is still having a hard time getting over the death of his father and is not pre-pared for his mom to get remarried. Finn is trying to live day to day until Raven shows up. His stepsister is not at all what he was expecting. The attraction he feels for her is like no other feelings he has ever felt before. But he knows she is forbidden to him but that doesn’t mean his feelings can just stop but Finn knows he can only fight his attraction for so long. Once he has her once, he knows things will never be the same.
Raven runs into some problems at school and decides to go stay with her dad for a while. A new place, new stepmom and a new stepbrother isn’t what Raven had in mind but what can you do when you go running back home. Raven decides it will only be for the summer until she meets Finn. Raven knows Finn is the sexiest man she has ever seen and she is having a hard time hiding her feelings for him. Until one day, she decides to make a move and suddenly everything changes.
Raven and Finn have to keep their relationship a secret. They know it’s the best choice right now. Both are so wrapped up in each other that time gets away from them and it’s time for Raven to make the choice to go back to school. But Finn isn’t ready to lose her and now it’s time to make the choice. I loved Finn and Raven from start to finish. I wish we could have seen a little more into the future but overall it’s a great book.
