An Inconvenient Obsession - Natasha Tate (debut author)
Never, ever would I have guessed this beautifully crafted romance was written by a debut author. It was that exceptional. I personally know Natasha Tate, I met her a few years ago when we both attended a conference in Seattle. I've followed Natasha career and couldn't wait to read her debut book. In fact, I've actually read it twice it was that exceptional.
This powerful romance starts out with the extremely handsome billionaire Ethan Hardesty wanting pay back from Cate Carrington because he had loved her ten years earlier and she sent him away. Now Cate's father has died and she's selling his "private" island, the very same one where Cate and Ethan fell in love. Ethan and his father both worked for the Carrington's. He wanted to purchase this as a gift for his father.now, before his own father passed away, Ethan wanted to prove to his dad that the Hardesty men even though had been born poor, now they were just as good as the Carrington's.
I wondered if they could mend fences because it was obvious to me they still shared mutual attraction. Could they rekindle their love for each other and why in the end had Cate broken Ethan's heart? In a way, now Ethan believed due to his wealth and now owning the island, he held the power over her, He had a plan and I knew it would lead to heartbreak for Cate. Because Ethan did indeed have a plan and he was going to lure her close, close enough to crush her, until he left her trembling, vulnerable and wanting just as she had done to him, all of those years ago. Then, maybe he could find peace, or would he?
Confession time came and went with Cate trying to explain her reasons for sending him away from their private island. Yet I wondered if there was more, more lies and truths to be revealed. He was ruthless with his touches and kisses until she finally gave in because not to would have killed her and possibly Ethan as well. Reading the rest of An Inconvenient Obsession was somewhat painful because in order to move forward they both had to forgive the past yet could they? Be prepared for shock, anger and revenge with this emotional romance. However in order to get their happiness, they have to go through the pain together and it was so worth it in the end.
