Review: Close Obsession by Anna Zaires

Title: Close Obsession (The Krinar Chronicles: Volume 2)
Author: Anna Zaires
Source: Provided by author
Genre: Sci-Fi Romance
Length: Novel
Reviewer: CaroleDee

In Lenkarda – the main Krinar colony on Earth – Mia is completely at Korum's mercy. With no way to leave and no idea how to operate even the most basic Krinar technology, she has no choice but to trust the K who brought her there – the lover whom she had betrayed.

Will he keep his promise to bring her home, or is she destined to be his prisoner forever? Can a human become a part of Krinar society? Does Korum love her, or does he only wish to possess her?

First, I have to thank Anna Zaires for providing me with an ARC copy of Close Obsession.  After reading Close Liaisons (The Krinar Chronicles, #1) I HAD to know what happened next. Yes, I was cyber stalking Ms. Zaires like crazy to find out when the next book would be released! I felt like a kid on Christmas morning when I got the e-mail with the ARC attached :) My morning got better and better because Close Obsession was exactly what I thought it was going to be and more!

If you're familiar with my reviews you know that I love a good Sci/Fi romance. Authors always amaze me when they can create futuristic societies that so closely parallel our own. With their own rituals, technologies, and even edible delicacies I was, once again, blown away with Zaire's creativity.

I still don't know if I trust Karum completely. But honestly, it adds to his appeal. There's something about his charismatic, alpha qualities that draw me in. He's manipulative, gorgeous, and successful. What girl or woman could resist that?

In Close Obsession Mia starts her journey into maturity. In parts of Close Liaisons I wanted to throttle her because she was so naive, but slowly but surely Mia's making her way into adult-land ;)  She still has some reservations and embarrassment about her sexuality, but she is still young and it's completely believable under the circumstances.

If you enjoyed Close Liaisons I have no doubt that you'll fall in love all over again with Close Obsession.  There's character growth, more shocking revelations, and a mysterious fanatical K left over from 'The Resistance'. I devoured it and, once again, can't wait to see what happens next!


When they finally came out of the water, Mia stretched out on a big towel they had brought from the house, and Korum lay down beside her. Closing her eyes, she relaxed, the hot rays of the sun beaming down on her skin. She vaguely wondered if she should put on sunblock, but she felt far too lazy to move. Just a few minutes, she promised herself, just enough to produce some vitamin D . .

A pleasant tickling sensation woke her up from her nap some time later.  Opening her eyes, she turned her head to the side, squinting a little from the bright light. Korum was lying there beside her, propped up on one elbow. Looking down at her with a smile, he was gently stroking the side of her ribcage with one long finger. His dark hair gleamed in the sunlight, and there was a warm glow in his thickly lashed amber eyes.  

“What?” Mia murmured, feeling a bit self-conscious. The bikini she was wearing left very little to the imagination, and the way he was staring at her right now made her feel absurdly shy.  

“Nothing,” he said softly. “Your skin just looks so delectable in this light. I never realized before how pretty such pale skin could be.”  

“Um, thank you . . .”  

“And it blushes so prettily too,” he teased, brushing his fingers against her suddenly too-warm cheeks.

Moments of Beauty by JB Heller ~ Cover Reveal and Giveaway

Moments of Beauty
J.B. Heller
Publication date: March 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Ugly. It’s the only word to describe my upbringing. It drove my need to capture every moment of beauty I could find. A glimpse of a mother’s love. A feather floating in the breeze. A ray of sunshine emerging on a rainy day.  And then there was her, Eliza Quinn, she signified everything I didn’t deserve. She showed me more beauty than I ever thought possible. And I took it all, despite knowing I was going to leave her, and never come back.  Leaving her five years ago was my biggest mistake, and my greatest regret. Now I need to make amends. I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’d ever have to do, but that was before I knew I had to win her back.Add to Goodreads
