Book Review:

Dark Obsession

Benjamin has lived a long live alone. He isolates himself in huge mansion. The rare chances Benjamin heads into to town, he goes to relive his cravings.

On one stormy night, he meets a foursome who interrupts his solitude. At first, he wants to rid himself of this group until he first lays eyes on Star.

Star is unsettled upon meeting her host, Benjamin. She soon forgets about him when her companions seduce her. In addition, just like that, Star is once again left unsatisfied.

Benjamin is aroused when he witnesses Star and her companions in sexy love fest. He notices that Star is left wanting. He is so angered on behalf of Star’s situation. He is consumed with desire for Star. Benjamin hopes to rectify Star’s predicament.

Star feels something strange is going on with their host. He is unlike anyone she’s ever met. Yet there is something memorizing about Benjamin.

Just when things are getting even more exciting, Star and Benjamin’s past comes back to haunt them both.

Lydia Parks introduces readers to her new anthology, Devour Me. In Devour Me, readers discover Lydia’s paranormal heroes and the erotic that comes up with their heroines.

Dark Lust

Christopher Marsh has searched for a very long time for a special talisman to ‘cure’ him. He longs to be mortal once more. He hires a special team to help in his search. The leader of his search team is Professor Nicole Stephenson. She reminds him of all things he desires but can never have.

Professor Nicole Stephenson is head of the archeological dig that sponsored by an eccentric rich man, Christopher Marsh. She has no idea that her sponsor really is nor does she know his true intentions with their dig. Nicole feels sexually drawn to Christopher but keeps her desire for him a secret. She doesn’t want to ruin her reputation with a fling. What they both didn’t count on was their passions wouldn’t be denied. Christopher manages to sneak a bite to an unsuspecting Nicole during their first thralls of passion.

Like the previous story, things heat up between the hero and heroine. Yet unlike Dark Obsession, only the hero’s past comes back to haunt and destroy Christopher’s happiness he’s found with Nicole.

Nicole has a great dilemma ahead for her. Is Nicole willing to give her reputation for something she doesn’t know will last?

Lydia Parks rocks with this anthology. The heroes of this anthology can Devour Me anytime. Pun intended.

I just posted the cliff notes of this amazing book. If you want more, which I have no doubt you will, then get your copy now.

I give Devour Me a rating of 5 Stars.
