Review: Secret Obsession by Olivia Linden

Title: Secret Obsession
 Author: Olivia Linden
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publish Date: Coming Soon
Review Source: eArc
Finn was the type of man that dreams were made of. A charming country boy. Handsome, hard working and loved his mama. Underneath? A freak in the sheets. 

Raven knew he was everything she wanted. But he was her secret.

Raven was supposed to be off limits.Forbidden.

That didn’t stop Finn from wanting her, so he took her. After one taste he knew he wouldn’t be able to stop. Everytime she screamed his name an indelible blemish was etched onto his soul. Claiming him just as he had claimed her. 

What they were doing was reckless which only added fuel to the flames. With each encounter they edged closer to the fire. Closer to disaster. There was no way for things to end well, but there was no way he could stop. 
Lines get crossed, blurred and scratched down his back as they both give into their 
Secret Obsession.

I was a virgin to anything Olivia Linden, now I just want MORE! Secret Obsession is a novella, which of course is a quick read. However, I found it went too quick just because I was completely consumed by this short story. I fell in love with Finn and Raven. 

Finn is pure country, plain and simple. He tends to the family ranch since his father passed away in the previous years. His mother is newly re-married to an ex-military man. Finn doesn’t really like change too much so he’s taking it somewhat hard. Just when he has everything all set up on “his” side of the house, in comes Raven.

Raven is Finn’s stepsister. A stepsister he never even knew about. Now she shows up and is taking over “his” side of the house. He thought that he could hate Raven. He planned to ignore Raven and go about his way. That plan backfired BIG time.

Raven had an attraction to Finn as well. They started out as friends but that blew into a whirlwind of a love affair. They both know it’s wrong and feel bad. They also feel bad because they are sneaking around. Will they last if they can’t be open about their relationship? 

Okay so this was a short read but my goodness was it HOT! The angst was there, the romance, and the sex was a sizzling!! I really hope that Finn and Raven have more stories in the future. The only thing I can complain about was that it was too short! It is a fun, spicy read that grabs your attention from the start.


I was born in New York, and raised in both Queens, NY and San Antonio, TX. As a shy young girl, writing was my creative outlet. Mini plays, short stories, poems and even a few comic strips were created from my love of writing and reading books. I also love to blog about relationships and social issues when I have the time. 

Reading was my first love, and since the age of 8 I have read hundreds of books from all genres. I can get lost in a good story, and have to finish reading the book in one day. Writing is my second love. Once the seeds of a story are planted in my mind, I have to see it bloom to the very end. I tend to write just like I think, so any subject will have a hint of humor to it. I can't help it. Sorry. :)
