The Obsession, the next installment in the scorching hot Filthy Rich Americans trilogy by USA Today bestselling author Nikki Sloane.
The Hale family is obsessed with status, power, and control. No problem is too big their money can’t solve.
Royce Hale manipulated me into giving him everything. My virginity. My hand in marriage. My heart.
And as soon as he got what he wanted, he callously sold me off for a cool ten million.
In the boardroom and the twisted game his family plays, he says the only rule is to win at all costs.
Yesterday I learned a painful lesson not to trust the prince of Cape Hill. Today I’ll destroy his carefully laid plans and show him just how badly he’s already lost.
All the money in the world won’t be able to stop me.

OUR REVIEW:

Shel: The second book in Filthy Rich Americans Series, The Obsession, did not disappoint. Ever since the jaw dropping ending of The Initiation, I’ve been eager to see what in the hell will happen next and I can confirm that Nikki Sloane continues to build my curiosity as she throws more twists and turns. I swear, every time I thought things were calming down and stabilizing, she’d amp up the insanity that is Macalister Hale and his deviousness. Court: I didn't think I could be more intrigued...but she definitely proved me wrong! The writing is SO GOOD! and kept me on the edge of my seat. The games these people play are crazy and the stakes are high, and we probably will never be able to predict exactly what will happen next, but I am just dead. Dead I tell you. And I cannot wait for the next one. 

Shel: You’ll speed through these pages trying to find out what Royce is up to. I’m still not sure that I fully understand or know which direction he’s going in and if this novel is any indication, there will be a twist to what he’s up to, for sure. And what about Alice? And Macalister? And that ending? And how will Royce and Marist get their HEA?  Court: YES! We know a little bit more than we did, but with every answered question...there are even more that pop up. Romantic suspense is kind of my favorite, so I am impatiently waiting for the next book in this series. Filthy Rich, and just filthy...this one kept us on our toes.

Shel: I enjoyed Marist showing more of a backbone when it came to her situation and even though her overconfidence in her ability to outmaneuver the Hales was a dumb move on her part, I love that she didn’t just succumb to their will. I cannot wait to see if she comes back swinging and how Royce fights for their HEA. I hope we have a long juicy read for The Deception, with lots of intrigue and twists. Court: Yes. She's figuring out that she has to fight hard, but some of these people have been at this a lot longer than her. I really love her character development though, and that she isn't giving up quite so easily. Still rooting for her, even though some shit got cray cray! Loved this one.

Blog Tour teaser.jpg Excerpt:
Royce wasn’t amused. “What are you doing?” I’d run my palms up his spread thighs until I found what I wanted. He made a half-hearted attempt to push my hands away, but I was persistent, and he began to grow hard under my touch. He both did and didn’t want me to keep going. “I thought that wasn’t allowed.” I stroked the bulge thickening down one leg of his suit pants. “Technically, I only agreed not to while we’re at the house.” When I reached for his belt, his grip on my wrist was more serious. “My door’s not locked.” “But it’s closed.” There was office etiquette—a closed door was treated as a locked one. Plus, Royce was a Hale and sat on the board of directors. “Only someone with career suicide would walk in here.” I undid his belt buckle with one hand while cupping him with the other, and a nearly inaudible groan came from him. God, it was hot. He stared at me with his beautifully conflicted eyes, silently pleading for me to stop but also to hurry up already and get his zipper down. My unpracticed hands shook, but it was mostly with excitement. Outside the office window, sunlight bounced off the brownish-blue bay far below. He had Boston and his fiancée at his feet, and his fingers curled tight around his throne as I pulled him free from his pants. A big part of me was thrilled with this plan, no matter how risky it was. Macalister’s constant supervision and inappropriateness had left me feeling weak and powerless. I needed to take some control back. I’d push the rules just as I pushed Royce now. “There you go, Medusa,” he muttered. He tipped his head toward his lap and his rock-hard erection. “Turning me into stone again.” A half-laugh bubbled from my chest, but then I closed my hands around him and stroked downward. Last time I’d done this, he’d told me to do it like I meant it, and so I did now. I slid my firm grip up and down, wringing another moan from him. This was his purest self. The only time I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt he was being true. His body wouldn’t let him lie. He was breathing hard, and his maroon tie rode his heaving chest like it weighed fifty pounds. It was undeniable how we looked. The prince being serviced by one of his subjects. His heavy cock throbbed in my hands, and I relished the way it felt. So soft and yet hard. “Oh, fuck,” he said appreciatively, but then he glanced at his watch and torment twisted his face. “Fuck.” Rather than pick up the pace, I slowed my tempo. “You’re making me late.” An evil smile bloomed on my face. “Then go. I’m not making you stay.” “Oh, you aren’t, huh?” He gripped my hands and urged me to pump on him faster, both with his action and his furious eyes. “Harder,” he barked, “and faster. Finish what you started.” “I’ll do it how I want, thank you very much.”
