BLOG TOUR: Possession by Jennifer Lyon


Thanks to Book Monster Promotions for hosting this blog tour. I'm sharing my review of Possession in addition to my review of The Proposition which is book 1 in The Plus One Chonicles by Jennifer Lyon. Happy reading!

*****************************

Summary:

Savagely sexy billionaire Sloane Michaels ruthlessly controls his life and everything in it. Even his sex partners are carefully negotiated plus-one arrangements, including his latest, the fiery bakery owner, Kat Thayne. But Sloane’s control is challenged when his mentor becomes seriously ill, and his need for Kat, his need to possess her at all costs, rivals only his single-minded goal of vengeance for the murder of his sister. After surviving an attack six years ago, Kat Thayne escaped her fears in the protective world of her beloved bakery. Then Sloane Michaels storms into her life, making her feel beautiful, strong and sexy. Yet as Kat pushes her boundaries and uncovers a dangerous secret in her past, Sloane’s controlling side emerges. Worried that Sloane will possess her mind, body and soul, Kat fights to keep her hard won independence. But just as Sloane demands her complete surrender, she discovers he has a dark side that could destroy them both.

Thoughts:

First off, this book does not have the ability to stand alone. It’s absolutely a book 2, picking up a couple days after book 1 leaves off. I was happy about that because of the way the first one ended – abruptly. This one is longer so we get more development between the couple and in the dramas of their lives.

As with the first, Sloane and Kat’s chemistry is awesome. I really loved them together. They make a lot of progress in this story as a pair and it sucks you in and gets you invested in their emotions, only to have them constantly remind themselves that what they have is only temporary and casual, despite what they occasionally admit. Kat’s inner strength and personal growth is so endearing it’s hard to put into words, but I will say that Sloane is just plain beautifully flawed. I want to root for him, but it’s so hard when he’s so stubborn in not even being willing to strive for something more than he thought possible. I get it, I do, but man it’s just heartbreaking.

Bottom Line:

Even better than the first with progress and development on all fronts, Possession will have you glued to the page. However, be prepared for another ending that leaves you hanging and waiting anxiously for the conclusion.

Kat Thayne has been in survival mode for six years, hiding behind the sweet creations for her bakery.
