Adam’s Obsession drew my interest because it was about a woman who felt it was necessary to use the internet to finally explore the wildness she feels inside her and a man who ultimately finds online what has he been missing. This is my first title by Sabrina York but I must say that I enjoyed her writing style very much. I was immediately drawn into the story and once I started reading I wanted to snuggle down deep into my sofa and read it until the very end.
The way Katherine found her hidden wildness online with a stranger was exciting and also very liberating for her. She seemed to really need the outlet from her very confining business attitude that she’s had to affect at work. I think when you have to behave a certain way in one setting and another somewhere else that causes quite a conflict internally. When Katherine’s worlds collide it gets quite interesting and it was an experience I delighted in.
I was enthralled by Adam before I even read the story from his point of view. Just the from reading the beginning when I was introduced to his online persona had me so fascinated. I could not wait to get to know him better and understand what his character had to offer. Once it hits him that the Katherine at his office is his “Kat” he no longer can separate his feelings for her at the office from what has happened online.
This was an arousing, intense and passionate romance. It started out hot and I don’t think it ever really cooled down. I will say that it had smoking hot sex and my e-reader was burning up. If you are looking for passion in your reading this is a great book to add to your shelf or e-reader. This will be going on my re-read list and Sabrina York will be an author I will be looking to for more hot reading.

Katherine has a bit of a wild side and a lotta bit of wild on her sexual side. But she plays things safe and refuses to give into what she desires. Live and learn, right? Well she did and after a failed attempt at a relationship with a co-worker at her previous place of employment, she toned things down. Anyway, her dalliance at work ended up costing her job. So now she is happy with her job of two years. The fact that she would love nothing more than to attract the attention of Adam means nil. She refuses to compromise her job … again … over a man so she dresses plainly and makes an attempt to detract from her appearance. And it seems to be working.
Adam has taken little notice of Katherine beyond her exceptional abilities at work. She is a hard worker and has saved the company a lot of money on occasion from her suggestions. Adam also suffered a divorce from an unfaithful woman and is pretty much turned off from the opposite sex as far as anything beyond physical gratification. So his virtual playtime with Wildcat is basically all he needs. But when he starts to notice similarities between his Wildcat and Katherine, Adam suddenly finds himself wanting more from Kat than the virtual romance they have cultivated. It doesn’t take long for Adam to see beyond the plain façade. When Kat is chosen to replace a co-worker on a business trip with Adam, he is suddenly given exactly the scenario he needs to seduce her. But revealing himself has to be timed right and Adam has a clever way to help himself get to cat by using ... well … himself. His Savage self, that is.
The catalyst comes when Adam wants to break the agreement he has with Kat. They can have a relationship so long as no one at work knows. And Kat would love to be able to end the secrets, but she can’t get past the possibility of losing the job that she loves for a man that definitely wants her, but isn’t in love with her. But Adam wants to out their secret romance because he is about to lose his mind over the young, horny punks at work trying to win Kat over. And the irony is that they only start taking notice after Adam himself causes them to. Jealousy is a mean beast sometimes. Of course Adam has to try and make his point with his brother Tristan also. Because coming out to the staff, so to speak, is also breaking a pact between brothers never to “fish in the company pond”.
What a fun and flirty read. Can you imagine having a *coughs* relationship online only to find out that he was the guy at work that you lusted after? Fantastical! Outrageous! Awesomesauce! I love that there was well thought out characters to this story that reached beyond the hot, frequent sex. Don’t get me wrong. Reading the sex between the characters was very entertaining, but the substance to said characters made the difference between liking the story and truly enjoying the story. And while Tristan is not much of a key character in the story, I found myself wanting to know his story. In fact, I enjoyed my time spent with Adam and Katherine so much that I have already added the next book in the series to my TBR list, TRISTAN’S TEMPTATION. That pretty much says it all right there.
