RELEASE BLITZ - Secret Obsession by Olivia Linden @givemebooksblog @Mslissa2U

Title: Secret Obsession
Author: Olivia Linden
Genre: Erotic Romance/New Adult
 Release Date: August 21, 2015


Finn was the type of man that dreams were made of. A charming country boy. Handsome, hard working and loved his mama. Underneath? A freak in the sheets.

Raven knew he was everything she wanted. But he was her secret.

Raven was supposed to be off limits. Forbidden.

That didn’t stop Finn from wanting her, so he took her. After one taste he knew he wouldn’t be able to stop. Everytime she screamed his name an indelible blemish was etched onto his soul. Claiming him just as he had claimed her.

What they were doing was reckless which only added fuel to the flames. With each encounter they edged closer to the fire. Closer to disaster. There was no way for things to end well, but there was no way he could stop.

Lines get crossed, blurred and scratched down his back as they both give into their Secret Obsession.

Read in July, 2015

I was lucky to get a chance to read an early copy of this book and I was pleasantly surprised.

Finn is the ultimate cowboy, taking over his fathers ranch after he died. He is a mamma's boy and isn't afraid to admit this. His mamma meets a new man and Finn is given a stepdad.
With his stepdad, came a stepsister and he really isn't happy that he has been told that he has to share his part of the house that he has made into a true man cave.

Raven is down on her luck at the moment and has to move into her stepmothers house. She meets Finn and attraction ensues which both of them have to hide away from their parents.

Olivia has produced a book that is brilliant and enticing. We follow Finn and Raven through their attraction to each other.

It is a fast paced read, but nothing is left out of the story. Olivia has a real flair for storytelling and I look forward to seeing more of her work.


Raven stood amongst the spectators as Finn strolled towards the bull. She might as well have been standing alone. Her entire world had been narrowed down to focus on him. The sexy sway of his gait, the way his t-shirt hugged the muscles in his back, and his nice tight ass. And she loved that he wasn't cocky. Finn had an easy confidence about him that she found very disarming. His warm brown eyes seemed to look right into her, and made her wonder how much of her soul he could see.

Hopefully not enough to know how bad she wanted him. He turned back to wink at her and she felt the flush rise up her neck and cheeks.

In one quick leap, Finn threw one long leg and then the other over the bull. He straightened his back, placed one hand on the hook, and raised the other in signal of his readiness. The music started and after a backwards count from three to one, he was set in motion. After his first five seconds, Raven knew he wouldn’t be falling off anytime soon.

He was magnetic. Looking cool, confident, and in total control as he kept his balance while the bull jerked and swayed. The way he eased his hips forward and arched his back to move with the momentum of the ride was beyond sexy. And the crowd ate it up. Some women cheered, others watched with the same dreamy expression. Finn was a living, breathing fantasy.

The guys placed bets. Most bet that he would last more than a minute. Others thought he would fall at the next unexpected shift. They were clearly haters. No doubt, Finn held the attention of every woman in the room.

He rode that bull for one minute and forty-five seconds. Then he let go on his own accord and threw himself onto the mat, hopping to his feet in the same motion. Raven stood in awe, with her lips slightly parted when he approached her.

"Your turn."


Finn shook his head and took her by the arm to guide her to the bull.

"No backing out Miss 'I know how to work my hips'. You're up!"

Raven didn't have time to protest. Before she knew it, Finn had her lifted onto the bull and adjusted for the ride. Once she was seated and the popular country song began to play, her nerves settled and her natural performer's nature kicked in.

"You good?" Finn asked. Raven waved him off, shaking off the trepidation with a wink of her own.

"I got this!"

She raised one arm to signal and then she began to move.

Standing with his arms crossed and a big smile on his face, Finn watched on with a mixture of pride and enthusiasm. He hadn't seen her, but he'd felt Raven's eyes on him when he’d rode. Now he was able to watch her, and boy was it a treat.

After a shaky start, where it looked as if she would be thrown in her first three seconds, she righted herself, and rolled with the jerky motions of the bull, syncing to the beat of the music. He couldn't stop staring at her, not even when Buck tapped him to comment on how hot she looked up there.

In his mind she was riding for him alone, like he was the only man in the room. Without thinking, Finn stalked forward, too drawn to her to stop, and jumped on the bull behind Raven. She laughed wildly and let out a loud hee-haw. He slid an arm around her waist and pulled her close.

"Hold on, baby," he whispered in her ear.

Raven's laughter died down to an uncontrollable smile at the erotic sensation of Finn being so close to her. Finn's chest pressed against her back. His fingers clutched her hips to guide her to his tempo. And his obvious arousal pressed against the crease of her ass. If she weren’t having so much fun, she would have fainted from overheating.

While they rode he whispered and crooned words of encouragement in her ear. “That’s nice, baby,” and “I love the way you ride,” made her tingle down to her toes. It was all in fun, but she couldn't stop thinking about how good his body felt against hers and how she could tell he felt the same way. But she knew that they had just crossed some sort of invisible line, a broken yet unspoken rule, and committed an infraction in the whole stepfamily hierarchy.

She knew she was supposed to care.

But she didn’t.

tyrant pre-order.jpg

King and Pup are back in this exciting conclusion to the King Series by T.M. Frazier releasing August 17th!


tyrant cover.jpg
I. Remember. Everything.
Only now I wish I didn’t.
When the fog is sucked away from my mind like smoke through a vacuum, the truth that has been beyond my reach for months finally reveals itself.
But the relief I thought I would feel never comes, and I’m more afraid now than I was the morning I woke up handcuffed in King’s bed.
Because with the truth comes dark secrets I was never meant to know.
I will put the lives of those I love most at risk if I let on that my memory has returned, or if I seek help from the heavily tattooed felon who owns me body and soul.
I don’t know if I’m strong enough to resist the magnetic pull toward King that grows stronger every day.
He’s already saved me in more ways than one. Now it’s my turn to do whatever it takes to save him.
Even if that means marrying someone else…

Read in August, 2015

This is one of those reads that you just are anxiously waiting for.
After TM Frazier left us hanging at the end of King, I had to get my hands on this book. She really didn't disappoint with this book.

A warning though, there will be tears, yes TM Frazier made me cry, shout, get angry with this book.

Will anything go right for Doe, I mean in book one she was so lost and confused. But finding King I think was her salvation, and then what happens to her at the end of book one has you shouting no fair.

You can see that Doe really loves and adores King in this next read, but I also found that she has grown into a fantastic young woman, with no holds barred determination.

King I think realises the depths of his feeling for Doe and after the events in Book one he will do anything for this young woman.

There are alot of twists and turns, suspense, love, hot scenes. I think anyone that will be reading this will be shouting at their kindle. Keep the tissues handy though as you will need them.

TM Frazier has written one of those reads that will have a hold on you even after finishing it. It is most definitely a must read, but book one needs to be read first.

I will be keeping an eye on this author to see what she writes next.

*****Free copy received via Obsessed by Books ********

' "Yeah, I'm remembering now."
"And who exactly are you?" Bear asked.
"I an the fucking bad guy." '

And boom King is back with a vengeance. After dealing with the immediate consequences of his choices King realises he has messed up. Lost in his grief for a daughter he so desperately wants and a best friend he couldn't save King makes the wrong play and pays heavily. Accepting he needs to fix things he and Bear embark on a do or die mission to keep Pup safe from the crazy they unleashed by killing Isaac, refusing to patch in to the MC and returning her to a home she has forgotten.

Overwhelmed, angry and confused Pup finds herself surrounded by her past life. Feeling like a poor substitute for the girl they lost Pup valiantly tries to remember who Ramie the girl she tried so hard to protect is. Ghosting through her new but old recovered life she spends time coming to terms with who she was, what she has been through and her current situation. Pup experiences flashbacks of Ramie's life, triggered by things and places. Slowly remembering how she felt about certain people and the pivotal moments they shared. Determined to be better than her own parents Pup sets her sights to her goal and goes all out doing anything necessary including a wedding... Will her memory return, what can of worms is waiting to be opened? Who can she trust? Will Pup cease to exist as Ramie fights to resurface and reclaim her life?

Once again T.M. Frazier has created a no holds barred action packed edge of your seat read. The brutality and violence is not shied away from and the truth isn't sugar coated. But the ties of loyalty and friendship shine through, Bear and King would die for the people they love. Pup, Doe, Ray - wow! With each flashback you realise there is more to her story than you first thought. She has always been the question filled head strong woman, some things never change! How did she end up in the trash, who was Nikki and why did her family not do more to find her? Who is the Tyrant?

Without spoilers all I can say is Tyrant will not disappoint. Filled from cover to cover with plot twists, suspense, intrigue and King...what more do you want?!? Bittersweet moments and the violence of Eli combine to make this much more than your expecting. Yes King is still very much King in and out of the bedroom and Pup is one lucky lady, their passion for each other can not be denied regardless of what name she chooses. There are many more layers to their story and I could not put the book down until I had finished it.

A five star Because...pancakes read.

* * ARC given on behalf of obsessed by books for an honest review * *

"Because with the truth comes dark secrets I was never meant to know"

WOW, that's really all I can say.
Doe is back with her father thanks to King, but was it the right thing to do? This book is one heck of a ride. King fights for the mistakes he's made, but is he to late. This was an amazing read. There's so much to say, but I don't know where to start. I would recommend reading King first, but this book will stand on its own. definitely a 5 star read.

King snarled. “You seem to have forgotten who the fuck I am, Pup. So I'm going to remind you.” He pressed his hips against mine. “I'm the man who took you against your will and handcuffed you to my fucking bed. I'm the man who wanted you, so I fucking kept you." He cocked an eyebrow. “Do you really think you have a choice when it comes to being mine?"
King lifted me onto the dresser and pushed himself between my legs, forcing my legs apart. He held my wrists behind my back forcing my shoulders backwards and pushing my chest into his. My dress rode up to the tops of my thighs. King pushed a strand of hair behind my ears and leaned in to me, his lips just a breath away from mine. The room was getting hot. I couldn't breathe. I needed...I don't know what I needed. "No more questions."
I opened my mouth to argue. "Stop fucking talking," he snapped.  
King lifted me off the dresser and carried me and set me down in front of the full-length mirror that hung on the closet door. He stood behind me. A head taller than me and outweighing me by a hundred pounds, our differences had never been more obvious. His dark jeans and dark tank top were a stark contrast to my little white eyelet sundress. My pale skin next to his tanned. My white hair to his black. It was a sight that made my knees weak. Because although the reflection in the mirror made our differences obvious, it also made me see how well the two fit together.
