Genre: Suspense Romance
Since she moved to Miami, Raegan Taylor has desired Ford Burke–a sexy and rugged cop. He’s everything she’s ever wanted. Unfortunately for Raegan, Ford’s kept his distance. But when a night out goes extremely wrong, his protective instincts kick into high gear, and he finds himself fighting for her in more ways than one.
Once Raegan and Ford grow closer, the harder they start to fall for each other. But Ford’s past stirs up feelings he just can’t control, threatening to destroy everything they’ve worked for. And when he screws up, he may lose more than just his one shot with her.
Someone wants Raegan—and if he can’t have her—nobody can. He’s waiting. He’s watching. He’s lurking. Ready to strike. He’ll make her his. He’ll take down anyone who gets in his way—even a cop.
Secret Obsession was a quick, enjoyable read as we venture into some newer characters in the Red Stone universe. I really liked Raegan who seemed to have her life pretty well figured out. She’s confident, intelligent, and knows her worth. She’s crushed on Ford for a while but she’s also not pining for him or willing to accept anything less than his everything. Ford is also a great hero but he makes some rookie mistakes stemming from trust issues he’s trying to work through, but it doesn’t take long for Ford to realize his mistake and try to fix things. Ford is definitely a protector and he’ll do anything to keep Raegan safe.
As an added bonus, we also get to see side characters Ruby and Montez fall in love. We first met them in Under His Protection, Ruby is Julieta’s assistant and Montez is Julieta’s brother. They have a sweet romance as Montez is self-conscious about the scarring on his face from his military service and he doesn’t think he’s good enough for Ruby.
