Erotic Romance Novella Review: Obsession by Calista Fox

Obsession by Calista Fox (Bayfront Billionaires #4)


Egalley thanks to St. Martin's Press

Synopsis from Goodreads
100 Shades of Sin...

Delicious and hot, the seductive Bayfront Billionaires need one thing, and one thing only: the woman made for them, the one woman on earth who can complete their trio of passion and desire.

When Roxy Shea arrived in Bayfront, she had no idea she would instantly attract the attention of two of the town’s sexiest and most eligible bachelors. She doesn’t want anything to do with them—with a dangerous past in her rearview mirror, a new relationship would be disastrous. But with every smoldering gaze and unspoken promise of pleasure, these billionaire bad boys are determined to make her theirs, to claim her body and soul.

Nick Faulkner and Hunter Valens are forces in their respective entertainment industries, but a past conflict has put a strain on their lifelong friendship—and vying for the mysterious Roxy’s affection doesn’t help matters. Until their craving for her leads to an explosive night with for threesome. But can they show Roxy that she can trust the men responsible for the sizzling pleasure she finds with them—and that their love is soul-deep?

 Oh my god, why did I punish myself and read this author again? We are obviously not suited as I find her flowery style very annoying.

Apart from that, it's a decent read, at times hot and with an intriguing world-building.

There are two underlying conflicts, Nick and Hunter's past trauma which let them drift apart and Roxy's past abusive relationship. I found them interesting, and she was obviously suffering from PTSD considering her reactions.

What I found disappointing is the villain's inexplicable change of heart which tied nicely into the abrupt ending. Sorry, I could not buy it.

Otherwise, it's an okay read, but I'll be avoiding Calista Fox in the future. She is just not for me.

О боже, ну зачем я себя наказала, согласившись прорецензировать этого автора опять? Мы ж совсем друг другу не подходим, так как ее цветочные описания доводили меня до белого каления.

Помимо этого, чтиво это ну так себе, иногда горячее и с интересным построением мира.

Здесь два сюжетных конфликта: общая для мужчин травма, которая привела к охлаждению их дружбы и рукоприкладство в прошлых отношениях героини. Она очень очевидно страдает от панических атак и синдрома ПТСР.

Я нашла очень разочаровывающим неожиданные и необъяснимые перемены в характере злодея, которые удобно вписались в резкую концовку, а так... ну можно прочесть.

Вот я не буду этого автора больше брать в руки. Не для меня она. А вы решайте сами.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
