Finally coming to grips with the attack and rape that happened over three years ago, Rashawn is finally ready to come back to the place she calls home. Returning to her old job, friends and family have been a lot to deal with. She is sure that her nightmare is far behind, even though she looks into the eyes of her attacker¿s gift every day in her son, Reggie. With an epidemic of the date rape drug, Get A--, people are coming up missing and dead and Rashawn is reliving the torment all over again. Waking up in awkward situations and feeling violated, Rashawn knows that something deadly is awaiting her. Will she have a second chance to put her attacker to rest, or will history repeat itself? What I liked about Obsession 101 was that this was not a typical story that I have read before. It had laughter, mystery, romance and a little street all in one. If you are an avid reader, you know what I am talking about. The problem that I had with Obsession, however, was with the main character, Rashawn. She was an airhead. It took her way too long to figure out who her attacker was. She trusted any and everybody and the only protection she had was never in her vicinity. Nevertheless, I am looking forward to more work from Michelle McGriff.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

The author does a meticulous work in vividly illustrating humor phobias, insecurities, altered egos and mental struggles through the power of words although at times I found it difficult to follow the author's lead in the plot, she recovered the story well. The story - suspenseful. Even after the early revealing in the story of the rapist who attacked RaShawn Ams, you'll continue to question the answer because the author used major twists and mayhem heightening the story. The center of the story is based on Professor RaShawn Ams, an English professor at Moorman University, in California. She returned from Georgia to work back again at the University, where she was raped. Now she too(unaware), has fallen victim to the sex drug that has hit the campus from the homeland of Jamaica. Being a creature of habit, the stalker was able to switch her bottled waters with his bottles of drugged water, in which afterwards he would take merciless advantage of the professor. Next, he was able to infiltrate her home and do the same. The results of RaShawn's rape at Moorman University one late night (kept secretive for a while from everyone, family members included), was born a sweet baby boy, Reggie. The rape was the reason for her immediate exodus to Georgia, where her son was born. She accounted to her family that Reggie was born due to her night of fun in the peach state of Georgia. RaShawn attempts, with difficulty, to lead a 'normal' life. Unfortunately, in her path are three men Chance Davis, Allen Roman and Blain Tollome one of which is possessed with demons and the story unveils...... Yet, it seemed as though there were other characters possessed at times. OUT-OF-CONTROL!!!!! The author was creative with the involvement of college faculty & students, law enforcemment and of course family and friends. The only problem I had was in needed closure to some characaters in the story. The character Leon, a security officer on campus - it's not quite clear how this character was introduced (other than his greed) to his partners, Doc and Red, in the drug circle on campus, in which he also was a drug dealer. Also who was the older man who Allen Roman despised so, what it is father? Who was Wanda, was she the same person as Juanita (Chance Davis' ex-wife)? What became of Juanita's current younger husband, Dennis?Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
