“Lure of Obsession” Review

Hello Friends!

I hope everything is going well. I must say that I’m still a bit crazy and confused with beginning the vacation. I’m so confused that I completely forgot to add a review post to my calendar and I then forgot that I had to post this review yesterday.

I am terribly sorry for that because I hate when I’m not able to post when I’m supposed to and when I promise. It’s not me.

Nevertheless, I read this book while working this July, and absolutely loved it. So I’m very excited to finally get this post for you.

Lure Of Obsession“, written by Lisa Kessler, is the first paranormal romance novel in The Muse Chronicles, published on 1st August 2016.

I want to thank Rachel, at Rachel’s Random Resources, and Lisa Kessler for the eCopy of this book and for allowing me to join in the fun and being a part of the blog tour with my honest review of the book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

Melanie Jacoby is the human vessel for the Muse of Tragic Poetry, but she isn’t prepared for the tragedy of finding her roommate dead at the bottom of the stairs.

Nate Malone is the detective assigned to the case, but as the evidence points to an accidental fall, the visions begin. He sees a killer in a gold Kronos mask.

Mel is the next target, but Nate’s determination to protect her is almost as strong as his desire for her. 

And tragedy isn’t part of his plan.

The Prophecy – “Every generation the nine daughters of Zeus are reborn, and with their rebirth are also nine Guardians. They will be marked by the gods, and given gifts to protect his treasure. Their abilities will only be unlocked when they find their muse.”

My Review

As you all by know by now, I love paranormal romances and although this one is the first book by Lisa Kessler that I read, I really need to read more of her books in the future because I loved this one.

This is the first book in a series that can be read as a standalone. It was an amazing start of a series and after reading it, I’m very curious to know more about this series and what next will happen in this world.

This novel follows Melanie and Nate in this romance that takes us right alongside the characters through a mystery and paranormal connection. It was a journey that was different, with a concept and world building that made me very curious. And although I don’t want to give any spoilers about the plot, I can talk about the characters.

Mel and Nate were amazing characters. I can’t help my love for detectives no matter the kind of genre the novel is, and Nate was dreamy and just an amazing character. Then there is Mel, that made me laugh because my goddaughter’s name is Melanie, despite that, Mel has this personality that I could get and her past and actions were interesting and I connected with her in some ways. I loved all the moments of interaction between them, because the romance wasn’t unbelievable, and the characters had dreams, plans, flaws, demons, qualities and determination and when they were together that is visible too.

Overall, I loved it. It had action, mystery, romance, paranormal qualities, Greek mythology, a plot that was difference from what I read in the past, with characters that were developed and kept growing and felt true and real. The fact that this is the first in a series means that there is much more to uncover yet, and that makes me even happier.

Lisa Kessler brought a breath of fresh air to the paranormal romance genre, or at least to my month because I needed something exciting in the genre that I love so much. So my July was perfect, not only because of all the books I have read, but especially because of this book that made my lunch breaks fantastically entertaining.

Like I said before I will be reading more of Lisa Kessler, especially because I had her books on my TBR already and after reading this book I’m even more excited and in love with the all idea and  with her books. So I highly recommend then.
