Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Unexpected Obsession by Barbara Strickland is a unique romance, and I mean that in a GREAT way! It’s a sexy, second chance romance combined with a bit of a family saga. Lia and Nico have known each other for many years, but their families were torn apart by tragedy. No spoilers here...I want other readers to enjoy every part of this book. Both characters are strong in their own right, so they fit perfectly together as a couple. The romance is steamy yet sweet. Strickland pulls off what some writers don’t. She writes a steamy love scene, but all the emotions and love her characters feel are also present. She combines both aspects perfectly. The writing and the pacing of the story is fantastic. The romance between the characters are realistic. I loved the memories each character shared. Those memories helped me connect even more with the characters and the story they had to tell. The book was well-written. Strickland writes in a way that transported me right into the story and the setting, making me feel as if I were a part of it myself. I know Strickland is a somewhat newer writer, and I’m really looking forward to seeing what she has in store for her readers in the future.
