"I loved the way the collaboration was put together. It was actually more captivating than I thought it would be. Being divorced as I am...well, lets just say that this book leaves the mind REALLY working about the things that can happen if you want to fulfill that sexual urge. While being extremely erotic, I do give this book a 4 in the rating department. It is definitely a book that will capture the attention of women...and even men, too! I'm sure there are men out there that would like a little “boost” in their readings. This is one that will go above and beyond that “boost” and I highly recommend it if you love the erotic feeling of reading a book filled with cravings and desires." —Romancing the Book

"This steamy and sexy anthology is filled with 19 stories all about obsession. I love the theme!! To me, nothing is sexier than that all consuming, make the world disappear, type of passion that these stories are all about." —Gypsy Mama Logs

"Obsessed is a treasure full of tenderness, raw lust, longing, and all of the many things that fill our sexual lives and erotic minds. The nineteen stories written so fluidly fills the oceanic depths of desire where obsession lies. Perhaps the word “obsessed” is as elusive as the state of being it exists in. Like a drug, we want more. More stories, more lust, more sex, more love, and it’s never, ever enough." —Erotica du Jour

Obsessed is not about obsession for a new purse or a new car. Instead, these stories sizzle with the kind of obsession that is fueled by our deepest desires, the ones that hold couples together, the ones that haunt us and don’t let go. Whether just-blooming passions, rekindled sparks, or reinvented relationships, these lovers put the object of their obsession first. From the almost-divorced couple in “Aftershocks,” by Bella Andre, who finally confess their deepest desires during an earthquake, to a woman who confesses to her boyfriend just how much she lusts after another man in Emerald's "Then," these lovers push the boundaries of their relationship and the boundaries of their trust in each other. Obsessed lovers don’t always do what is rational; sometimes they chase their dreams, such as in Kayla Perrin’s “One Night in Paris,” across the world and across the landscape of their lovers’ bodies.
