The back cover blurb of this book sounded very promising and I can with all honesty say the author nailed it! I walked away a very happy reader.
We meet good looking, hard working real estate agent Megan who goes out for a run, is violently attacked and left for dead, then she is rescued by very handsome stranger Stephen. After her recovery their worlds cross again and soon a blazing hot relationship starts.
But our killer rapist friend still hides in the shadows, Megan is the only who got away and he does not like his scorecard empty. Of course Stephen will protect Megan at all costs, but protecting her from the killer is easy, he knows the guys intentions, how to protect her from an unknown threat, now that is a whole other ball game and a complete new set of rules!
The character of Megan was strong and feisty, she does have a few issues getting back up on her feet after the attack, which of course is completely understandable. This showed her as very realistic as there is no person that is going to simply get up and fight back directly after being almost raped, stabbed and left for dead.
I liked how the author let's Stephen and Megan 's friends rebuild her confidence and I very much enjoyed seeing Megan's personality change.Read more ›
TRAIL OF OBSESSION is the first book in Rebecca Tust’s adult, contemporary romance, suspense, thriller TRAIL series. The focus of the storyline is Megan Cartwright-a Florida real estate agent-who has the dubious distinction of having not once, not twice but three times been attacked.
Megan is the target of a crazed rapist and murderer as well as the target of someone from Stephen’s past. Stephen is the man who found a dying and bleeding Megan at a local Florida running park and the man with whom Megan will fall in love. As the storyline develops, Megan and Stephen’s relationship goes from rescuer to friendship to love but not before her would-be assassin sets his sights on a series of other women whilst waiting for his chance to finish the job. With a serial murderer and rapist on the loose the Florida law enforcement have their hands full and are doing a rather poor job of investigation and protection.
We are introduced to Megan and Stephen’s best friends Blake and Chelsea whose storyline will be told next. Their relationship is tepid at best but there is a definite sexual attraction between the couple.
TRAIL OF OBSESSION reads like an episode from a television crime drama but there are so many unanswered questions that the ending left me bereft; the secondary plotline is never completely resolved; and the probability of some of the issues and events is questionable.
As this is the first in the series, I am hoping that many of these questions will be answered or addressed in the upcoming instalments. The premise is interesting, inviting and has so much potential but the unanswered plot points and open ended subplot had me questioning everything. I wanted closure but there was none to be had-for the reader or the victim.
I was gifted a copy
TRAIL OF OBSESSION by Rebecca Tust is the story of a young, successful woman who, after a violent attack, slowly is trying to find her way back to life. In her attempts to cope with the horrific attack, she seeks out the man who saved her--and falls in love with him. It is a slow, careful love affair in which both partners find their way. But her attacker is not yet done with her. Through fear and violence, the two lovers need to find a way to each other--and survive.
The book is a fun, in places action-filled novel with some developments you do not see coming. The author has worked hard on giving her characters real depth and humanity. There were times when I could not put the book down.
However, there were also times in which the characters seem to be lost in inconsequentialities that distract the reader and some of the side characters lack spice. Whilst the beginning holds you at the edge of your seat and the end lets you take a deep breath, somewhere in the middle the interactions stretch a little.
Nevertheless, a very enjoyable read. There is laughter and a deep reality in the book and where other authors skip over the emotional inconsistencies brought on by violence, Rebecca Tust allows her heroine, and the family, space to live.
If you are looking for a fun read, a few hours of tension, then this book can serve well.

It was quite good. A little corny maybe. Maybe a little more push on the romantic side than necessary but kept your interest. I'd read another one of Tust's books.Published 24 months ago by MAURINE L BAKER
This was a very enjoyable read. It kept me turning the pages to see how each character interacted. Not as predictable as many story lines that involve a romance.Published on July 1, 2014 by DENISE LEE
