Blog Tour: Hidden Obsession by Missy Johnson

Hidden Obsession
by Missy Johnson
The Club #2
Publication Date: February 10, 2015

Desperate for a change - and hoping to shake off the guy who has been stalking her for the last two years - Raven James moves to Texas to start a new life.
Until now, her stalker has kept his distance. But when a sexy young detective Conrad enters the scene, her stalkers behavior becomes more and more disturbing, leaving Raven to wonder how far he will go to get what he wants.
When Conrad turns up at her work with some interesting 'ideas' on how to draw her stalker out of the woodwork, Raven is willing to try anything, even if it means doing things she never thought she was capable of.
Conrad says he can help, but the line between duty and desire will be blurred in an effort to catch a madman.

My Review
Raven James left her home and moved away in order to escape a stalker. After leaving her alone for awhile, he escalates from flowers and break-ins to more extreme measures.
When a detective is called to Raven's apartment after her stalker's most recent act, Raven finds herself attractive to the young, handsome Liam Hemsworth look alike. As a client at Karim, the club that Raven works at, Conrad and Raven find themselves running in to one another more often and the attraction between the two soon heats up.
Can Raven trust Conrad to help her catch her stalker or in the end will Raven's stalker catch her?
Hidden Obsession is novella length (under 100 pages) and a quick read jammed pack with steamy scenes, angst, and sexual tension between the two main characters.

I liked the fact that the book wasn't exactly what I expected and in fact went in a total opposite direction. Missy Johnson is an author who captives her audience and leaves them wanting more and has once again left her readers on the edge of their seats needing to know what happens with Raven and Conrad next. As a talented author, Missy Johnson showcases her talent in each book and draws readers into her brilliant mind.

The only problems I had with the story is that we don't learn very much about the characters themselves, even though they come across as very likeable. Raven's character also didn't have a very specific description and was left to the reader's imagination. Secondly, the ending was somewhat abrupt and left me arguing with myself over how I truly felt about it. With a novella the ending didn't leave for much closure and would be much better explored in a full length novel.

With that being said I give Hidden Obsession 3 1/2 STARS. I look forward to more from Missy Johnson and from this multi-author series.
