[Review] Obsession

ObsessionObsession by Kayla Perrin

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Sophie begins and obsessive relationship with the handsome Piotr after finding out about her husband's own affair, which has landed him in legal trouble. She soon learns that dishing out what you've been served isn't always the best way to heal your heart.

Perrin knows how to start a good story. She just seems to have some problems actually seeing her stories through to the end.

Also, I had a hard time caring about Sophie. She came off as brat-ish, and her brat-ish behavior followed to the end. I did sympathize with her, cheer her on, and felt her pain, but she was brat.

When I was finally at that point where I thought I could really like her, her shallow behavior ruined that. There seemed to be no real character growth for her.

She seemed to think that love was gauged by who bought her the better tennis bracelet. Okay book. I'll continue to read Perrin's works because she can create an intriguing storyline. She just needs to work on her weak endings.

This blog is a mishmash of thoughts, pictures, and rantings among other things about games I've played, games I will play, and games I am currently playing. From time to time, I may post book reviews that I've written that are about different games and/or game worlds. Feel free to recommend games or add me on the platforms I've listed. I don't do competitive multiplayer much anymore, but I'm always down for some co-op these days. I'm usually DigitalTempest everywhere unless otherwise specified.
