After being left at the altar, Jade Roberts seeks solace at her best friend's ranch on the Colorado western slope. Her humiliation still ripe, she doesn't expect to be attracted to her friend's reticent brother, but when the gorgeous cowboy kisses her, all bets are off.

Talon Steel is broken. Having never fully healed from a horrific childhood trauma, he simply exists, taking from women what is offered and giving nothing in return...until Jade Roberts catapults into his life. She is beautiful, sweet, and giving, and his desire for her becomes a craving he fears he'll never be able to satisfy.

Passion sizzles between the two lovers...but long-buried secrets haunt them both and may eventually tear them apart.

I read the entire book in one night. I could not put it down. It is a page turner from the very beginning. Yes there is lotsof romance but story being told about the ghosts of Talon's past is absolutely riveting. An amazing story so well told by Helen Hardt. I cannot wait for Obsession A MUST READ!!!!

This is my first review ever so bare with me. I bought this book yesterday and was finished a couple hours later. I could not put it down. I highly recommend this book. The author really helped me connect to Jade and Talon. I laughed and cried during this. But the down side is the end. It made me scream Noooo where is the rest?? I will be getting the next one in this saga. Great job Helen Hardt. I am hooked.

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This is the first Helen Hardt book I've read, and she did no disappoint. This book was dark, fast, and so damn sexy. I couldn't put it down! The story follows Talon Steel, a tortured soul trying to find his way, but of course, nothing in life goes as planned. Jade Roberts comes crashing into his world and everything gets turned on its head for these two complex characters. I was very impressed with both Hardt's writing abilities and her talent of consuming the reading into an engrossing story. Well done, Helen! I'm waiting on pins and needles for book two!

I couldn't put it down! I loved this book. Talon and Jade are amazing characters. Talon is so broken, yet strong. It broke my heart and pissed me off just seeing his story unfold. I wasn't expecting that cliffhanger! I can't wait for the next book!

I devoured this book in less than 24 hours and now I am the one left "Craving" more! I cannot wait for the second (and third) installment of this series to become available. The characters are rich in personalities and Helen Hardt's gift for words paints a mental image of the rugged good looks of the leading man Talon. Obsession and Possession (books 2 and 3) cannot come soon enough!

This was my first read from Helen Hardt. let me tell you, I am now a fan for life. The relationship between Talon and Jade is HOT and the underlying back story is full of suspense. I cannot wait to learn more about what happened to Talon and the mystery that the Steel family is involved in. I am so excited for the next book in this series as I need more Talon and Jade and I need to find out where this storyline is going!!!

210 pages too short. I wish that authors would stop comparing there book to fifty shades the only thing in this book that has to do with Gray is this cowboy was raped by 3 men not a woman. Why can't writers write all 3 book a the same time now i have to wait at least 3 to 6 months and each book at $ 6.99 make the pages longer

This book is INTENSE, RAW & SEXY! Extremely HOT!!! I'm in love with Talon and completely obsessed with this story. I read a few books per week but have never loved a book so much. I'm completely ADDICTED to this series! This story is intense!

OMG I need Obsession like now!! How can I possibly wait?! LOL this series is amazing and is going to continue to be. Jade and Talon's, raw, all that! Be aware there's a cliffhanger but the next book is out in a couple of months. You absolutely won't regret this one. I love Helen's other books for sure but this one is my favorite thus far!

I also read in one night but more because it was like the first chapter. It just ended without a end to the story. I felt it was overly focused on trying to make it a sexual story. I will not purchase another book to find the ending.

This is the first book I ready by Helen and let me tell you it will not be the last! I became acquainted with Helen via my Facebook feed as an author I might be interested in. I am so happy I paid attention this time. The story of Jade and Talon has you on edge from the first time they meet. You know there is something between them, but neither want to admit to it. You slowly learn of some things in Talon's past that makes him guarded, but he also has a hard time staying away from Jade. There is something about her he cannot resist, but doesn't know what it is exactly. She was just left at the alter so the last thing she is looking for is a relationship. Their chemistry is undeniable, even though they are both too stubborn to admit to it. They are absolutely hot together, but keep fighting the feelings they know are developing. They are both scared to move forward to see where this is taking them. This is a great story and only leaves you wanting more. The next two books in this series are a MUST READ on my list!
