I purchased the 2nd in the series and was sorely disappointed when it pretty much ended. . .again. . .with no closure to the storyline. Granted, we got a bit more in clues for the saga, but it only made me mad I could finish up the storyline so I could get on to a fresh story in the series.
I WOULD HAVE considered purchasing future books by this author but it started to feel like the "Red John" situation on the t.v. show The Mentalist. This particular character always being in the background and even several secondary storylines being referenced. Gets rather tiresome dragging on that particular chapter with no resolution. I feel the same with this book.
Don't get me wrong. The characters got me hooked and the heart-wrenching past had me wanting to see those responsible pay for their horrific part. But I feel slighted that I have to keep paying more for what. . .7 more chapters. . .just to hear what happened to ONE of family members.
Maybe if the third chapter comes to Kindle for free, I might continue to catch up with these characters. But for now, I'm willing to tap down my curisoity in favor of saving my pocketbook.
Obsession, and the entire Steel saga is dark and mysterious. Ms. Hardt does an excellent job of dropping breadcrumbs about what is in store for the characters, Talon’s past and the Steel's future At the same time, she throws in some unexpected events that cause the reader to question how everything will play out continually.
Obsession continues telling the tale with the alternating points of view of Jade and Talon. It is often heartbreaking to experience the fear and pain that Talon works through daily. It is also sad but hopeful to know what is going on in Jade’s head. I love Jade’s courage. She is a good friend of Marjorie Steel. It is refreshing to have a character cheer for a relationship between a best friend and a sibling. It gets a little old sometimes to always have this scenario cause a rift between friends. Marj sees how perfect the relationship can be and champions Jade to Talon.
I love how Jade is all-in helping Marj find what her brothers are keeping from her. Sometimes it is to help her friend and sometimes to help the man she loves. Jade puts on her sleuthing hat and using the tools available to her as assistant district attorney. The work setting adds another level of mystery to the story. Jade works for a sleazy, unethical district attorney who is out to get the Steels. It makes me wonder what his problem with them is. It concerns me a little that Jade appears to be a bit disloyal to the man she loves at times. I have confidence that she will do the right thing, but honestly, I’m not sure where this heading.
In Obsession, the XXX-rated scenes continue. You've gotta love that! Talon’s dirty mouth is sexy as hell. Also, Talon is showing more of his dominant side in the bedroom and Jade is enjoying it--so is this reader. Unfortunately, Talon also pushes at Jade away in a hateful manner that makes me yell at him on occasion. Jade doesn’t give up or give in to Talon’s mixed signals. She stands her ground and allows Talon to work on his demons—another aspect of the characters that makes the story captivating. Rarely do characters stay in my head like the Steels, et. al. I am at the point where I believe I know them personally and I want to know more. I so need Talon to find happiness, and I love that he is trying to get his life together by seeing Dr. Carmichael.
The book is full of mystery and suspense about the growing romance that it is impossible to put them down after starting. The stories are so good that I went back and ordered the audio for these first two books with the audio and ebook for Possession. The narrators for Talon's story are Sebastian York and Neva Navarre. Adding their voices to the mix adds additional insight into the Steel’s universe.
Helen Hardt is doing an excellent job creating intrigue not only with the storyline but with multi-dimensional characters. These characters are going to stay with me for a long time. Every chapter flows so smoothly from page to page then from book to book making the experience entertaining and entrancing. Now I’m off to start reading Possession, book 3 of the series while keeping the events of Obsession circling in my brain. I highly recommend this series. I’m confident that you will love it.
While Book 1, "Craving", was a wonderful beginning to the Steel Brothers saga, Book 2 is where the bold, fearless beauty of Helen Hardt's writing bursts into brilliant life. I was so blown away by this section of Talon and Jade's story, I'm not even certain where to start on the raving. Let's just say that while I adore an amazing tormented hero, it's also tough to give me one that pulls me deeply into his soul. Well, Talon Steel has now hit my Top 5 of Best Tormented Guys. GAH, how he has twisted me, broken me, simply compelled me to fall in love with him! Jade is his perfect heroine: smart, strong, persistent, and most of all, compassionate. I also loved how the supporting cast were all given more development and "time on stage", helping to move this incredible plot along.
Sometimes, you can think of a thousand superlatives for a book--and sometimes, you just have to collapse on the couch and surrender to just one word.
Helen Hardt has created such an intriguing plot that putting this book down was darn near impossible. She's slowly unwinding the horrendous events of Talon's past throrugh flashbacks and memories. It's the perfect formula for an edge of your seat romantic suspense.

But talk about dragging it out. Jeez Louise how many books !!!! 15 or something and the story is moving at a mind numbing pace! again like the first book the story seems to be written around sex scene rather than the sex scenes being an addition to the story they just go on and on and half the time don’t add anything. I’m frustrated that I won’t get to find out what happens to Talon, quite frankly not really bothered about Jade she’s a boring 2D character, but there is no way I’m slogging through the rest of these books especially at the ridiculous price for a book that’s barely 250 pages long.... any one say cash cow!
