Erotic Romance, Romantic Suspense/Mystery
The victim of both a brutal attempted rape and now a serial stalking, Halley Davis is broken, and desperate to glue the shattered pieces of her life back together. Tormented by a psychopath and battling a heavy dose of anxiety, sex and dating are the last things on Halley's anxiety-ridden mind. That is, until she meets the man who rescued her from the hands of a would-be rapist. With a body made for sin, a wicked, sexy tattoo and an aura that screams "badass," her rescuer not only calms the storm of terror raging inside her mind, he ignites a passion within her she's never known before.
Tired of using meaningless sex to drown out the horrors of his past, Nick Ackart has sworn off women. In fact, if women were classified as meat, his ass is Vegan. Despite his determination to remain unattached, Nick is unable to stay away from the emerald-eyed beauty he rescued from a sadistic pervert. Immersed in a tangled web of sexual desire and deep emotion he was certain was long dead, he vows to protect Halley from the monster hounding her, even though he stands to lose his heart in the process.

Ms Sanchez twists a simple plot into a good story in OBSESSED. Likable characters capture the reader, drawing us into the mystery so well that putting the book down was a challenge.
Halley is the victim of a brutal attempted rape. She is trying to put her life back together, opening a new business with a friend and re-engaging in life. Now a stalker is after her and when she most needs to be rescued, Nick becomes her hero. Though alive, Halley finds herself in the hospital and after that incident her life is not getting any easier. Her stalker is getting more aggressive and Halley begins suffering from panic attacks, indulging in pills until she discovers that Nick seems to be the only person able to calm her. Nick makes her feel safe but with a body made for sin and a bad-ass persona, Nick not only calms Halley, he also ignites a passion within her.
Nick comes with his own baggage. I couldn't decide whether his past made him perfect for her or just the opposite. Nick had sworn off relationships after losing a woman he cared for until he meets Halley. Nick can't stay away from Halley once he rescues her from an attacker. Filled with desire and a need to protect, he forms a connection with Halley, even though he risks losing her. The evolution of Nick's character as he progresses from his own mourning to be capable of developing a relationship with Halley is touching.
The mystery of the stalker seems obvious though Ms Sanchez throws in some curve balls that call some other characters to question. But the focus of OBSESSED is the relationship forming between Halley and Nick. The interactions between the couple are realistic and believable – much like any real-life couple might be. They had great friends – fun and integral secondary characters – in their respective best friends who truly added to the story. More romance than mystery, OBSESSED is a sweet love story of two broken people finding their healing in one another.
