Obsessed by Beth Ciotta Blog Tour

A showplace for talent. A playground for love. STARSTRUCK. A new contemporary continuity series by Beth Ciotta, Cynthia Valero, and Elle J Rossi. Three authors. One world. Launching with Ciotta’s sexy novella—Obsessed.

A Fallen Star…

A hot-mess of controversy and scandal, Dakota Breeze—tarnished pop star of fading fame and fortune—accepts a friend’s offer, taking refuge in a small Midwestern town in order to rehearse her comeback concert in secret. Starstruck is the perfect venue however rehearsals are marred by Dakota’s reluctance to resurrect her former bad-girl persona and complicated by an anonymous death threat.

A Haunted Bodyguard…

Enlisted by a mutual friend, Wyatt MacDermott—a seasoned protection specialist—agrees to act as Dakota’s temporary bodyguard. Forced to set aside a personal grudge in order to fulfill his duties, Mac’s stunned by his fierce and instant attraction to the reckless celebrity he’s long associated with his greatest regret.

Obsessed with conflicting needs and united passion, Dakota and Wyatt spin out of control, indulging in a whirlwind affair and tempting an avenger’s wrath.

As soon as Mac locked the door, Dakota turned and backed him against the wall. “You may not care about the order, but I do. You can ask me anything you want. After,” she said while working the buttons of his white shirt. “Knowing me could be a total turn off. Considering we’re hot and bothered now let’s do this now. I—”

“What happened to not talking this to death?” He reversed their position. Unknotted her shrug.

She opened his shirt. Pressed her lips to his impressive chest while pushing his jacket from his equally impressive shoulders.

He expedited the process, ridding himself of the jacket and shirt while kissing her stupid.

There would be no overthinking this. She could barely breathe, let alone conjure a coherent sentence. She felt the soft fabric of her dress skimming up her body, along with his hands. His mouth played over her cheek, her jaw, her neck, her ear—an endless kiss as he stripped away her clothes and senses.

He broke away long enough to admire her pink bra and thong.

Her skin sizzled as he devoured her form. Bare. Lush.

“Gorgeous,” was all he said, yet she read so much more in his eyes.

Your body, your curves—perfect. Size eight? Why would you want to be anything less?

Her heart pounded as he freed her hair of its twisted knot. Her stomach coiled as his fingers skimmed the waistline of her thong. His fingers dipped beneath the satin—a brush, a touch. Fleeting. Teasing.

Frantic with desire, Dakota attacked his belt and zipper. “The last two days have been nothing but foreplay. Let’s skip to the main event.”

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

Wyatt takes a security detail over Dakota Breeze, a tarnished, has been, pop star trying to make a comeback. An obsessed fan has written some nasty letters and there is some worry over something happening. Wyatt has a serious attraction to the starlet, and Dakota shows some attraction toward him as well. The scenario has been done before but I still enjoyed the banter between characters. The book could have been fleshed out a bit more to make it full novel length but as a novella it was pretty good. I gave it four stars.

This novella features a smoking hot but not interested Alpha male protection agent and a one-time pop diva trying to make a comeback. Fate intervenes to ensure that they see what is really hidden beneath the masks, and what a great little story it makes. I really liked the side characters and as this is the first in a series, I look forward to meeting them all again – especially the so far absent Frank!
