This is a STANDALONE dark(ish) erotic romance with insta-obsession between two damaged soulmates(no cheating-HEA-no cliffhanger)


All my life, I’ve only wanted one thing: someone to love me and someone who will let me love them in return. This seems like a simple request, but I was born to parents who wished I had died of childhood leukemia, instead of my younger sister, and who have ignored me no matter how much I’ve tried to please them. I’m starved for affection, addicted to the feeling when someone cares about me, which has led to a love life filled with either boys I’ve scared off, or men all too eager to take advantage of me. I thought I would never find a man who could feed my craving for constant attention–and then I met Leo. He fills the void inside of me, haunts my dreams, and does things to me in bed that are so good, they’re probably illegal. I can only pray I don’t scare him off once he figures out just how needy I really am.


There are very few people in this world I’ve ever been able to form an emotional attachment to, but the moment I saw Hannah, I knew she was mine. We were bound together by fate, our paths crossing first as children, then as adults, each time marking me. She doesn’t know it but I’ve been watching her for a year now, studying her, stacking the deck so when I do make my move, there’s no way she’ll ever escape me. But my world is a harsh, cruel place, and the cartel I work for demands absolute loyalty and trust…a loyalty Hannah has yet to earn in the dangerous eyes of my employers. There is only one way to ensure Hannah’s absolute devotion, and I hope that she doesn’t hate me forever when she finds out that not only have I brainwashed her into loving me, but that I don’t feel an ounce of guilt about doing it. She’s mine, only mine, and I’m keeping her forever.

Warning: This story features a rough and demanding Dom who’s completely devoted to bringing his baby girl pleasure through such unconventional means as spanking, mild BDSM, D/S, roleplaying, and various other forms of wicked kinkery.




I’ve read a selection of Ann Mayburn’s books over the last month or two. So, I was very excited to be given the possibility of reviewing Obsession, her latest erotic romance. This is my honest review.

This book is written for adults who like edgy, naughty books, with explicit sex scenes. So, if this is not in you reading lane, please skip this review.

I love Obsession’s plot. I like the way Ms. Mayburn weaves reality and fantasy together to give a picture of what life inside a drug cartel might be like. The combination of cartel members doing dark deeds and yet having loving, faithful relationships within their families was quite striking. Since my Dad and my ex both had childhood friends in the Mafia, I knew this dichotomy could be bridged. I remember meeting a large, athletic man who loved opera and came to the Chicago Conservatory to hear one of my recitals. He took us all out to dinner after the recital, and it was very special to be treated to one of the most luxurious restaurants in the area. Years later I found out this gentleman was an enforcer for the Mafia. So, I could buy into the difference between the cartel member’s “work” and their family life. Ms. Mayburn did a great job bridging this gap.

I also related to the characters. I empathized with Leo, the main character, as I’ve known several former special forces guys with skills most would call violent who had a different mind set than ordinary men. These men were fiercely protective about their country, families and friends. I recognized this same fierceness in Leo. While Leo’s extreme alpha qualities wouldn’t be appreciated by everyone, I felt that he had redeeming qualities. His lifelong desire for family drives his behavior, but can he find the one woman who could fit into his life?

When your role models are damaged people who starve you of affection, where do you learn about relationships? Hannah reminded me of how many young people go to books, movies, videos where the fantasies of being in a relationship are the only role models they have. This distorted version of loving doesn’t work for men in Hannah’s life. She seems clingy and needy. But, should she be alone forever because she’s never been cared for and doesn’t know how to be in a “normal” relationship?

As a series of serendipities bring Leo and Hannah together, can they mesh their lives and find true happiness? Has Leo’s preference for the Daddy role turn Hannah off or has he finally found his princess? Will problems within the cartel prevent them from building a good relationship and family? Find out by reading Obsession by Ann Mayburn. I highly recommend this book. In fact, I read the book twice and really enjoyed both reads. I look forward to more books in the series.


With over forty published books, Ann is Queen of the Castle to her husband and three sons in the mountains of West Virginia. In her past lives she’s been an Import Broker, a Communications Specialist, a US Navy Civilian Contractor, a Bartender/Waitress, and an actor at the Michigan Renaissance Festival. She also spent a summer touring with the Grateful Dead-though she will deny to her children that it ever happened.

From a young Ann has had a love affair with books would read everything she could get her hands on. As Ann grew older, and her hormones kicked in, she discovered bodice ripping Fabio-esque romance novels. They were great at first, but she soon grew tired of the endless stories with a big wonderful emotional buildup to really short and crappy sex. Never a big fan of purple prose, throbbing spears of fleshy pleasure and wet honey pots make her giggle, she sought out books that gave the sex scenes in the story just as much detail and plot as everything else-without using cringe worthy euphemisms. This led her to the wonderful world of Erotic Romance, and she’s never looked back.

Now Ann spends her days trying to tune out cartoons playing in the background to get into her ‘sexy space’ and has accepted that her Muse has a severe case of ADD.
