Favorite Obsession by Nancy Corrigan *Review
Posted by brriske
Forbidden is in the eye of the beholder.
As a human living among shifters, Josh Conway is expected to abide by Pride law. But he’s never been very good at following rules. He’d rather make his own. The habit has gotten him in trouble over the years, but it’s all about the endgame. And this time he knows exactly what he wants—the gorgeous feline shifter who’s off-limits.
Mira is his. He knew it the moment he looked into her eyes. Of course, convincing her of the truth involves overcoming a prophecy, her protective family, and the little issue of them being different species. No big deal. He’ll figure out a way to make it work. His mind is made up. He’s not letting his woman go. Ever.
Book Three in the Royal Pride Series has evoked emotions in me that the first two did not. Do not get me wrong, I adored the first two books in the series, but this one just took things to a whole new level. We already have met Josh, the jilted ex that does not believe that he deserves any kind of true relationship. He is the guardian of two young shifter girls but still wars with whether he will find someone who can erase his previous notions of love. We also have met Mira in past books. Mira was the victim of a brutal crime resulting in the murder of her chosen mate. Kade (Pride Alpha/Leader) has to deliver heart breaking news to Mira- Choose a mate or one will be chosen for you. Shifter babies are few and far between and the council is convinced that every female of child bearing age must produce cubs. Mira is at war with the fact that she is so drawn to Josh, a human, someone the council will never let her have. Mira and those who love her hope to find a loop-hole that would allow Mira to choose Josh, but with him being human is she damning him to a life that will end in misery?
I felt every ounce of the turmoil in this book, page after page. While there are very heated sexual encounters through out, there is also an amazing story going on that will pull you in. I fall more in love with the main and supporting characters with each new book. Mira is tough but needs to learn that every woman should have one man that they allow to tame them. It means that you can trust them with every fiber of your being and know that they are always going to be there. I cannot wait to see what is next for Kade, he has always had my heart through each book, there but in the background. He is kinda like the guy waiting in the wings who you want to know more about, but he won’t let you in because he feels everyone else is more important. I give this book a strong 5 fangs and cannot wait for book four.
I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review.
As you all are well aware, I have an addiction to shifter novels. I cannot seem to get enough and I love when an author manages to create a whole new idea that I have not seen before. Nancy has managed to do that here. We meet Rafe, Royal shifter, Blonde, tan and steamy. He is all alpha and a whole lot of cocky. We meet Jazz who is sassy, independent and running from a very dangerous man. So as not to reveal any spoilers on that end I am not going to give too much of that story line away. Jazz is an unexpected mother of twins and these twins are going to lead her to things that she never thought possible. She has been baron for 5 years and coming in contact with this stranger- Rafe sets every part of her on fire. Will she submit? Will she keep running? What is she running from? Does she even know?
I started this book and absolutely could not put it down. It took over my brain completely. I wrote the author and told her that I almost got a speeding ticket coming home from work, just so that I could dive back into the story. I am lacking sleep today because I was constantly waking up through out the night from steamy dreams and wanting to read more. This book really needed to come with a disclaimer. The disclaimer should read that this book is going to weave an irreversible web in your brain, your heart and your unmentionable parts. If you like shifters, steam, and great book hang overs- this book will do the trick. I give it 5 fangs and cannot wait to read more of the Royals. I sure hope that this author will keep me on her review list so that I get first dibs on the next in the series.
I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review. This book was a flawless continuation in the series leaving very little time having passed from book 1 to book 2. Devin is a sexy Royal (three cats live in him) who is determined to help his pride save the abducted children that are being used essentially as science experiments. Little does he know that his path will lead him to Lena, adopted sister of one of the children he is looking for. In the process of trying to find the child, Lena is taken captive. Lena is head strong and believes that Devin is just like every other shifter she has crossed paths with and is determined not to let him penetrate her walls. While she keeps the barrier up, she cannot resist the dangerous sexual energy that ebbs between them. What she does not know is that the things done to save her life will ultimately leave her with more questions than answers.
The heat between the two lead characters was palpable. The sex scenes flawless, I love that despite how angry the two would get, it just amped the energy up that much more. There was so much angst in this book that I was on the edge of my seat to see what the next issue would be. I read this book essentially in one sitting and LOVED it as much as the first. This author is one of my new faves, not only because of my love for shifter novels, but because the writing style is flawless. I give this book 5 fangs and cannot wait to see what happens with Gwen and the men that want to claim her.
A true romantic at heart, Nancy Corrigan is convinced there’s a knight in shining armor for every woman (or man), but you won’t find damsels in distress in her stories. She adores pairing alpha heroes with women strong enough to match them and bring them to their knees. She also enjoys flipping the traditional roles in romances because her motto is—love and people should never be forced to conform to anyone’s norm.
She holds a degree in chemistry and has worked in research but now focuses on ensuring quality. She considers it the perfect outlet for her as she’s the first to admit she has some OCD tendencies. It carries over into her writing life too. While engrossed in a novel, she has a habit of forgetting to eat and sleep. Fortunately, she’s married to her own knight in shining armor who understands her oddities and loves her anyway. They reside in Pennsylvania with their three children, dog, snake and guinea pigs. Her other interests include tattoos, animals, classic cars and all things spooky and sexy.
