Reviewed by Desere Book provided by the author for review Review originally posted at Romancing the Book In her debut novel Natasha Tate introduces us to Ethan and Cate. As the blurb suggests these two are destined to rekindle a passion so fierce it seems it never burned out. The author took me on a magical journey of old flames reunited, secrets revealed and unforgettable passion ignited! What I liked about the book was the way in which the author introduced me to the characters, giving me ample personality traits and looks to allow my imagination to create my own picture as to what they look like and understand how their heads work. In some books I have really had a hard time trying to match the characters up with the information given and most times I fall back on plan B, which is to look at the front and try to see if the images on the front cover matches up. I especially liked that the author does not leave anything to the imagination when it comes to the end of a dramatic scene. Sometimes when reading a book and a scene comes along where there is an argument and it suddenly ends with one person saying something dramatic and that’s it. Then the next chapter would start as if nothing happened and I start to wonder if I missed a page. But this author does a beautiful job of guiding you through it all without it being boring and overwritten. Natasha Tate is a true gem when it comes to her writing, her books are fun, fresh, brilliantly written, has unforgettable plots and amazingly memorable characters. Ethan and Cate will certainly be with me for a long time. Favorite Quote: “don’t you know what my life is like without you in it?”

Never, ever would I have guessed this beautifully crafted romance was written by a debut author. It was that exceptional. I personally know Natasha Tate, I met her a few years ago when we both attended a conference in Seattle. I've followed Natasha career and couldn't wait to read her debut book. In fact, I've actually read it twice it was that exceptional. This powerful romance starts out with the extremely handsome billionaire Ethan Hardesty wanting pay back from Cate Carrington because he had loved her ten years earlier and she sent him away. Now Cate's father has died and she's selling his "private" island, the very same one where Cate and Ethan fell in love. Ethan and his father both worked for the Carrington's. He wanted to purchase this as a gift for his, before his own father passed away, Ethan wanted to prove to his dad that the Hardesty men even though had been born poor, now they were just as good as the Carrington's. I wondered if they could mend fences because it was obvious to me they still shared mutual attraction. Could they rekindle their love for each other and why in the end had Cate broken Ethan's heart? In a way, now Ethan believed due to his wealth and now owning the island, he held the power over her, He had a plan and I knew it would lead to heartbreak for Cate. Because Ethan did indeed have a plan and he was going to lure her close, close enough to crush her, until he left her trembling, vulnerable and wanting just as she had done to him, all of those years ago. Then, maybe he could find peace, or would he? Confession time came and went with Cate trying to explain her reasons for sending him away from their private island. Yet I wondered if there was more, more lies and truths to be revealed. He was ruthless with his touches and kisses until she finally gave in because not to would have killed her and possibly Ethan as well. Reading the rest of An Inconvenient Obsession was somewhat painful because in order to move forward they both had to forgive the past yet could they? Be prepared for shock, anger and revenge with this emotional romance. However in order to get their happiness, they have to go through the pain together and it was so worth it in the end. Natasha's next book will be Once Touched, Never Forgotten and I look forward to reading this one as well. Congratulations to Natasha Tate and your debut book!

It took me 3 weeks to finish this book when it usually takes me 1 or 2 days no more than 3 days to finish a good book with this many pages. It was like watching paint dry or the grass growing and I was begging for the end to come because, even if its a bad book I must finish it hoping it may get better later on. Not this book. OMG! I was like make it stop, make it stop, my eyes are bleeding. Every time I began reading this book, it reminded me of having to study for a class that I hated. The only good thing I can say about this book is that it's finally over. The suffering has ended. I have another book by this author in my library, let's just hope it's not as bad as this one. What am I talking about, nothing could be as bad as this one, or at least I hope not.
