Romance Erotica Sensual
OBSESSED BY HIM is an anthology of collected novellas by
Red Garnier. The stories are extremely erotic tales of
billionaires -- all friends -- and the women they fall in
love with. Each story is extremely sexual and the love
affairs are all very passionate. I like that the stories
are not just about the sex. I don't normally look for
romances with a "billionaire" theme, but the likable
characters and compelling stories are part of what set the
billionaires in OBSESSED BY HIM apart from all the rest. I
think true love and a sense of destiny are at the heart of
each of these stories. Each story is also focused on each
couple and both parties are equally obsessed with each
other. I love the intensity and passion represented in
every story in OBSESSED BY HIM.
I like the continuity that these stories have. They all
take place around the same time and they involve a circle
of friends. There are many aspects of the novellas in this
anthology that make them all a delicious treat, but my
favorite might be "Kept by Him". There is something so
captivating about two people coming together when you know
that they should have had their happily ever after years
ago, but something went wrong and they never got the
chance -- until now. The sexual tension and anticipation is
just as fabulous as the actual love scenes between Daniel
and Monica. I think Red Garnier does a really great job in
this story of creating two complex characters without
having the drama in their past suffocating the romance.
"Claimed by Him" and "Bound by Him" both evoke a feeling of
sexy possessiveness without any creepiness or demeaning the
characters in any way. Graves and Chloe's story in "Claimed
by Him" has a lot of sweet, tender moments thrown into the
scorching sexiness. I definitely fell for Graves and could
absolutely see why Chloe did as well.
Being able to see both Whitney and Andrew's POV make "Bound
by Him" a lot easier to understand the characters and the
circumstances they currently find themselves in. The added
suspense thrown into their story adds an extra element of
excitement without overpowering the love story.
I wasn't sure I would enjoy "Taken by Him" because it's
about modern day rake Luke Preston. My worry was that I
would find him too obnoxious for my tastes. Happily, I did
not find that to be the case. Luke's story is about the
transformative power of love. He is completely knocked for
a loop when, out of his normal environment, he stumbles
upon Peyton Lane. I like how off kilter Luke is when he
realizes how strongly he feels for Peyton.
OBSESSED BY HIM is a collection of fun, smoking hot
romances with characters you care about. I cheered for
every couple as I read their stories. I look forward to
reading more stories with the kind of heat and chemistry
between characters that Red Garnier can deliver.
