I received this book for free from NetGalley, Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

My Review

The Obsession by Nora Roberts is a standalone romantic suspense novel.

Naomi’s life changed with the rain. What was seemingly a hard family to live in became impossible with the realization of her father’s secret.  She begins living a new life, always aware of the past, hoping to make a future that is free from it.

The Obsession is the first novel I have read by Nora Roberts. It was an emotional and suspense-filled read.  Naomi experienced so much at the hands of her father, hatred and self-doubt were prevalent in her character bag. However, she was one of the strongest book heroines. She could have folded at any point in her life, given her past. But she didn’t.  Xander became the light that shined into her darkness, giving her a way out.  I loved that Xander and Naomi were not just your ordinary romantic couple who met, fell in love, and lived happily-ever-after.  They learned each other, knew their likes, dislikes, what made them tick.  And this allowed for a true bond to form that made what that had lasting.  The story line flowed well and seamlessly from past to present, and although I enjoyed it, some parts seemed to be too lengthy and possibly unnecessary, which made me lose interest at some points. However, I am happy to have read, and will definitely pick up more from this author.
