I have loved to read for as long as I can remember. Favorite authors are Patricia Briggs, Kris Austen Radcliffe, ilona Andrews and Darynda Jones. I love discovering new to me authors and interacting with the independent books community. I also enjoy binge TV watching. I am creating this blog so that I can post book reviews and whatever else interests me. I am always interested in trying out product for review.

Endless Obsession Release Blitz
I’ve silently watched her for a year, staying hidden in the shadows, biding my time.
She may know me as two different men, but she doesn’t have a clue what I’ve done.
She unknowingly became mine the minute my eyes touched her beauty.
But I’ve done things. Things she may not be able to forgive.
I know all her secrets, her habits, her preferred coffee, what she does in her spare time, her favorite lingerie brand, even that she sleeps naked.
At night, I watch her from her window. During the day, I watch her from my computer. She innocently bares her heart and body to me, and I soak up every single fucking second.
I’ve stayed away, but I’m tired of watching from afar. It’s time Poppy finds out just who I am and what I’m willing to do to take what’s mine. She may hate me when she finds out my what I’ve done, but she has no choice but to accept it.
She will be my wife. She will mother my children. I will claim every part of her heart, body, and soul. Anything else is unacceptable.
Poppy Lexington has become my endless obsession. I will become her uncontrollable addiction.
Unknown:Have you enjoyed the flowers I’ve sent
freeze, except for my eyes, which pop open wide in shock. My breath gets caught
in my throat when I realize this must be my mystery flower guy.
Holy hell!It’s him!
in the world is he texting me? After all this time, why contact me now? And
what in the hell do I say to him? It’s become a routine. I’ve gotten used to
getting the roses and not knowing who they are from. Question after question
runs through my mind. Who is he? Why send me flowers? Why not introduce
himself? Where did he first see me? How did he find out where I worked? And how
in the hell did he get my number?
my number one question, so I ask him.
Me:How did you get my number?
only takes seconds for me to receive a reply, and I’m not sure how to take it.
Unknown:I have my ways. You didn’t answer my
has his ways? What is that supposed to mean? My chest tightens with fear at his
answer. I push back the fear and ask another question I’m dying to know.
Me: They’re beautiful, thank you. Who are you?
Unknown: You’ll find out soon enough.
say what? Another question avoided. My eyes narrow in suspicion.
Me: I’m not sure I like that answer. I have no
idea who you are. What if I don’t want to know you once I find out?
notice the time on my phone and pull the second thigh-high up my leg, keeping
my eyes on the screen the entire time. This is really weird, him having my
number. I’m sure it’s not too hard to get the information, but it’s the point
that he went through the trouble to get it. I hate being left in the dark like
phone dings again, and I quickly grab it.
Unknown:You’ll want to know me. Trust me.
him? That’s laughable. How can he think I’ll trust him when I have no idea who
Me:It’s hard to trust someone I don’t know.
slip my feet in my heels as I wait for him to reply. It’s doesn’t take long.
of how to respond to that, I walk back to the kitchen to get a travel mug of
coffee ready. He seems so confident, and cocky. Maybe a little too much, since
it’s coming from a total stranger. How can he be so sure?
type out my original question again.
Me:Who are you?
grip my phone in frustration. Now that he’s contacted me, the need to know who
sends me roses every week is overwhelming. It’s no longer a curiosity—I need to know. I should be more afraid,
but I’m not, and that gives me pause. Why am I not more fearful? He’s obviously
hiding something, right? But what?
sends another text before I get a chance to reply.
Unknown:Have a good day at work, Beautiful.
That’s it? He has flowers delivered to me every week for eight months, messages
me out of the blue with cryptic messages, then wishes me a good day at work?
Pissed off vibes has my gut clenching. How dare he contact me and leave me
Me:That’s it? That’s all I get out of you?
flip the off switch on the coffee pot, grab my now full travel mug, my purse,
and with phone still in hand, I leave my house, locking it up behind me.
buckling my seatbelt when he replies.
For now, yes.
no, that doesn’t work for me. He needs to give me something. He can’t just
expect me to accept his non-answers.
Me:How do you know me? How do you know where
Unknown:I know a lot of things about you, Poppy.
Me:You’re not helping your case of me
wanting to know you. It’s freaking me out that you know stuff about me,
personal stuff, when I don’t even know your name. That’s not normal. It’s
pretty stalkerish, don’t you think?
notice the time on my phone again and see I have a few minutes before I need to
leave, so I decide to wait for his reply.
Unknown:Just call me Mr. A for now. Have a safe
trip to work.
