Release Date: February 2nd, 2021
A classic sort of love story…except somebody might wind up dead.
No one knows Delilah like Logan does. Nobody. He makes sure of it by learning everything he can through her social media and watching her through a hidden camera he has trained on her house. Some might call him a stalker. Logan prefers to be called “romantic.”
But after Logan sees Delilah killing her abusive stepfather, he realizes there’s still more about her to discover. His sweet, perfect Delilah isn’t so perfect after all.
Delilah knows she should feel guilty, but all she feels is free. She’s so over the men in her life controlling her. Except Logan saw what she did, and he won’t let her forget it.
Delilah is done being the victim. And she refuses to be a character in Logan’s twisted fantasy. If Logan won’t let her go…she’ll make him.
Ahh, young love. Is there anything sweeter than that first teen romance? Well, not in Jesse Sotanto’s crazy, twisted The Obsession. The premise is quite simple: Boy meets girl. Boy stalks girl. Boy discovers secret about girl and blackmails her. Girl is not what she seems and turns the tables on her stalker/blackmailer. The alternating views between Logan and Delilah help flesh out both their personalities which is essential because as you can probably guess from the synopsis, they’re pretty complicated. The dialogue between them is sharp and even occasionally humorous which is a nice contrast to the dark themes of the story. The pace is very fast, in some scenes, a little too fast, especially with regards to the ending, but I can unequivocally state that The Obsession kept me completely mesmerized and I can’t wait for the sequel. I highly recommend this for fans of Pretty Little Liars, and You, by Caroline Kepnes.
