This book has all the ingredients for the best-seller recipe: high school crushes, second chances, adult romances, love, hate, violence, obsession, guilt, and the deep dark secrets of the past. Put all this together with an incredibly sexy Hollywood movie star, a single mom who is a department store photographer, a bunch of fans, and a psycho stalker killer. Sound good yet? I thought so!

I thought the characters in this story were great! I instantly fell in love with Nic and Lauren. And this love was not just an insta-crush...nope I loved these characters more and more as the story went on. I found them relatable and just plain real! Even though Nic was this hot shot Hollywood actor, he just wanted a calm and normal life. He loved his fans, but he hated the Hollywood life. I also love Lauren’s character. She is a strong woman and single mother. She wants the best for her child and works hard to get it. I am a single mom so I really enjoyed that Lauren was too. And it kind of gives you hope that there are good men out there who want to be with you even if you already have a child. I liked that she was a strong character and knew what she wanted. I loved Nic and Lauren together. They made me smile, laugh, ooh and ahhh. But, I also got upset when outside forces were trying to tear them apart. I enjoyed the supporting cast as well. I really liked Remi, he was so funny! I thought Nic and Remi had a great friendship and they always made me laugh. I look forward to reading more about Remi in Kristine Cayne’s next installment of this series.
Altogether, I thought this book was great and I definitely recommend this 5 STAR book. I loved the suspense and the romance. It just went together perfectly! I just can’t get over how much I fell in love with Nic and Lauren. I was routing for them and wanted them to have their Happily Ever After. If you love Adult Romance, Suspense, Humor, and Thrills, then you will love “Deadly Obsession” by Kristine Cayne. I think everyone should check this book out – it was just that good!
