I gave this book 4/5

Synopsis: Angela Martin is chief detective for the Moose Creek, N.C., police department, when a possible murder call comes in. At the scene she finds the body of a woman, hanging from hands bound overhead, eyes blindfolded, mouth gagged. Red whip marks crisscross the woman’s buttocks, the back of her legs. She recognizes the scene, knows exactly what happened to the woman before she died, because Det. Angela Martin was bound and blindfolded, gagged and whipped exactly as this woman had been. By a man she met on line.

A killer.

A master whose power over her is so strong she’s willing to risk everything – her career, even her life – to be with him again.

LETHAL OBSESSION is a novel of desire and domination, suspicion and fear, and the mysterious way those emotions mingle into an inescapable pull, one that might cost Angela her life

This is an alternative book that is more than erotic kinkiness, it is a crime thriller as well. This is what sets this book apart from many.

What I liked about this book?

If you enjoy reading bdsm scenes then you will enjoy this book. I thought it was well thought out and well written. I loved the dark ‘erotic’ descriptions, so nicely done. Miller allows the reader to question the alternative world of bondage, even if you are unsure what it is about. There is absolute distaste of the crimes, which firmly draws the line between fantasy and reality. This is a book to satisfy dark fantasies, with the excuse of reading a crime novel. “Oh it’s a crime novel, whats that? Yes it has a bit of erotica in it, but the crime is fascinating”!
Indeed the crime will have you wondering what the outcome will be.

What I disliked about the book?

Shandra Miller you left me feeling cheated!! How dare you not complete the story in this one book. Okay I know you mean to entice the reader to read the next book, because you left me in no doubt that I will never know what happens next unless I get the next book! Knowing that Miller may possibly leave the next book half written does not make me wish to buy it to read it.
