Former cobalt addict and AKM drug counselor, Io is a male vampire known as much for his abrasive personality as for his playboy lifestyle. Life on the edge suits him, and he lives full throttle, making his own rules, damn the consequences. What he wants, he takes, and what he wants now is Miriam. If only he can find a way to see her again without getting himself

Overview

Former cobalt addict and AKM drug counselor, Io is a male vampire known as much for his abrasive personality as for his playboy lifestyle. Life on the edge suits him, and he lives full throttle, making his own rules, damn the consequences. What he wants, he takes, and what he wants now is Miriam. If only he can find a way to see her again without getting himself killed, but her father stands in the way.

Miriam is the daughter of the king. Strong-willed and defiant, she feels like a prisoner in her own home and struggles to break free from under her father's oppressive hold. The king's law surrounding Miriam is explicitly clear: No one touches her. Period. It's a sentence that's left Miriam to suffer from loneliness and resentment.

In a fit of rebellion, Miriam has turned to cobalt to find relief and freedom, but now she's a prisoner to addiction as much as to her father's strict control. What's more, she can't get sexy Io, who gently tended to her at the AKM facility as she recovered from her first overdose, off her mind. Will she ever see him again?

When Miriam overdoses a second time, she and Io are thrust back together, and all bets are off. Seeing each other was the one thing both wanted, and not even the king's laws and threats of punishment will be enough to defuse their rebellious obsession with one another now that they've found each other again, even if the consequences are death.

I love books where the main character turns it around and becomes someone you like and admire, rather than being a complete twonk! This is what Io has done for me in Rebel Obsession. With a bit of help from Sev and a new insight given by the mating bond, Io is able to overcome some of his prejudices and attitudes. He is not all bad - far from it. He was a Cobalt addict, but has beaten it. He is now a counsellor for the AKM program, helping others as he himself was helped. Miriam is an addict, but like with any addiction, she needs to find and deal with the root of the problem, rather than the short-term high that she gets from running away from it. With new insights into characters, new characters turning lives upside down, and new perspectives to be seen, this is an amazing book in an already fantastic series. Each book manages to give you a completely satisfying ending, whilst still wanting to know more about their world. Exceptionally well written, and with no editing or grammatical errors that I found, this is highly recommended by me. * I received this book from More Than Words Promotions in return for a fair and honest review. * Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

I really really liked this book! 4.5 stars for me! Oh Io, Io, Io... Poor Io. Will this bad boy ever learn? He screws up his relationship with his best friend when he finds out he's gay. And he actually takes a mate! The Kings' daughter no less! Will this rebel pay for his sins or live to tell about it? I love how Io progresses and starts to see the error of his ways. What he always thought to be the most disgusting thing ever,he starts to realize it really doesn't matter if his best friend is gay, as long as he's happy. His story had me laughing at times and feeling bad for him at others. I enjoyed reading it.

Donya-Lynne has done it again! Another great book filled with action, sex, love and redemption. If you enjoy paranormal romance and are not reading the AKM series, do yourself a favor and buy them all and lock yourself away for the weekend. Happy reading!!!!

I love this series. Donya Lynne has created a different kind of world of vampires. Some can walk in the light, some can read minds, some are older than Jesus. All of them are gorgeous. They also have a king. He has a daughter who is tired of being cosseted. As in all good books there are antagonists. These guys aren't pasty white, they're blue. Their species, known as dreck, is a distant cousin to vampire. They are a lower form of vampire and many are drug dealers. So the princess looks for drugs to break away from the monotony of being a royal. Look out overdose, here comes All the Kings Men to save the princess. This series is just getting better and better.

GREAT SERIES:  REVIEW:  I am a big fan of Donya Lynne’s AKM (All The King’s Men) series and Io’s storyline is both heartbreaking and fascinating.  Donya has pulled no punches as Io fights for the mate who is fighting a war of her own.  Between her father’s iron rule and her addiction to cobalt, Io must make Miriam face the hard facts as it pertains to her life and their future.  But Io’s vampire has mated with the one woman who comes with enough family baggage to tip the scales in no ones favor.   Donya involves all of the AKM vampires and half-breeds in Rebel Obsession-from their fight to keep Io’s mating a secret to their defense of a friend when the vampire King sentences one of their own to death- the AKM team members are willing to sacrifice for the sake of friendship and love. As the story develops you can see that there is a potential for several more storylines.  Trace is in need of some major therapy and he may just have found the very woman who can control the beast who is only too willing to come out and play.  And to complicate matters, someone long thought dead will re-enter the vampire’s lives and change the history for both family and friends. REBEL OBSESSION reveals some major plot twists and developments that can only be answered in future storylines.  Donya has grabbed my proverbial paranormal junkie side and keeps my addiction at an all time high (pun intended).  I am looking forward to the next instalment in the AKM and I hope I do not have to wait too long.

The world that author Donya Lynne has created is amazing. Each book in this series just keeps getting more amazing. Io is a former cobalt user turned clean. He knows the daily struggle of being an addict. When helps the King's daughter after an overdose, she is all he can think of. Will Io move heaven and hell and risk his own life to see Miriam again? And given the chance, will he face the wrath of King to fulfill his need to claim Miriam? READ ON TO FIND OUT!!!! You will NOT be disappointed!
