Release Blitz and Giveaway: Endless Obsession by Alexy Grayson

Title: Endless Obsession
Author: Alex Grayson
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: September 23, 2016

I’ve silently watched her for a year, staying hidden in the shadows, biding my time. 

She may know me as two different men, but hasn’t a clue what I’ve done.

She unknowingly became mine the minute my eyes touched her beauty.

But I’ve done things. Things she may not be able to forgive.

I know all her secrets, her habits, her preferred coffee, what she does in her spare time, her favorite lingerie brand, even that she sleeps naked.

At night, I watch her from her window. During the day, I watch her from my computer. She innocently bares her heart and body to me, and I soak up every single fucking second.

I’ve stayed away, but I’m tired of watching from afar. It’s time Poppy finds out just who I am and what I’m willing to do to take what’s mine. She may hate me when she finds out my what I’ve done, but she has no choice but to accept it. She will be my wife. She will mother my children. I will claim every part of her heart, body, and soul. Anything else is unacceptable.

Poppy Lexington has become my ultimate obsession, and I will become her uncontrollable addiction.

Unknown: Have you enjoyed the flowers I’ve sent you?
I freeze, except for my eyes, which pop open wide in shock. My breath gets caught in my throat when I realize this must be my mystery flower guy.
Holy hell! It’s him!
Why in the world is he texting me? After all this time, why contact me now? And what in the hell do I say to him? It’s become a routine. I’ve gotten used to getting the roses and not knowing who they are from. Question after question runs through my mind. Who is he? Why send me flowers? Why not introduce himself? Where did he first see me? How did he find out where I worked? And how in the hell did he get my number?
That’s my number one question, so I ask him.
Me: How did you get my number?
It only takes seconds for me to receive a reply, and I’m not sure how to take it.
Unknown: I have my ways. You didn’t answer my question.
He has his ways? What is that supposed to mean? My chest tightens with fear at his answer. I push back the fear and ask another question I’m dying to know.
Me: They’re beautiful, thank you. Who are you?
Unknown: You’ll find out soon enough.
Umm… say what? Another question avoided. My eyes narrow in suspicion.
Me: I’m not sure I like that answer. I have no idea who you are. What if I don’t want to know you once I find out?
I notice the time on my phone and pull the second thigh-high up my leg, keeping my eyes on the screen the entire time. This is really weird, him having my number. I’m sure it’s not too hard to get the information, but it’s the point that he went through the trouble to get it. I hate being left in the dark like this.
My phone dings again, and I quickly grab it.
Unknown: You’ll want to know me. Trust me.
Trust him? That’s laughable. How can he think I’ll trust him when I have no idea who he is?
Me: It’s hard to trust someone I don’t know.
I slip my feet in my heels as I wait for him to reply. It’s doesn’t take long.
Unknown: You’ll learn.
Unsure of how to respond to that, I walk back to the kitchen to get a travel mug of coffee ready. He seems so confident, and cocky. Maybe a little too much, since it’s coming from a total stranger. How can he be so sure?
I type out my original question again.
Me: Who are you?
Unknown: Soon…
I grip my phone in frustration. Now that he’s contacted me, the need to know who sends me roses every week is overwhelming. It’s no longer a curiosity—I need to know. I should be more afraid, but I’m not, and that gives me pause. Why am I not more fearful? He’s obviously hiding something, right? But what?
He sends another text before I get a chance to reply.
Unknown: Have a good day at work, Beautiful.
What? That’s it? He has flowers delivered to me every week for eight months, messages me out of the blue with cryptic messages, then wishes me a good day at work? Pissed off vibes has my gut clenching. How dare he contact me and leave me hanging.
Me: That’s it? That’s all I get out of you?
I flip the off switch on the coffee pot, grab my now full travel mug, my purse, and with phone still in hand, I leave my house, locking it up behind me.
I’m buckling my seatbelt when he replies.
Unknown: For now, yes.
Oh no, that doesn’t work for me. He needs to give me something. He can’t just expect me to accept his non-answers.
Me: How do you know me? How do you know where I work?
Unknown: I know a lot of things about you, Poppy.
Me: You’re not helping your case of me wanting to know you. It’s freaking me out that you know stuff about me, personal stuff, when I don’t even know your name. That’s not normal. It’s pretty stalkerish, don’t you think?
I notice the time on my phone again and see I have a few minutes before I need to leave, so I decide to wait for his reply.
Unknown: Just call me Mr. A for now. Have a safe trip to work.
Endless Obsession is a thriller with a side of romance, and it standalone as far as I know. I am not really sure where to start with this review, this book seriously had me a little off kilter. When I read a book I know its fiction but for me a story is always better if I could maybe picture myself in the shoes of the character, and this story didn't make me want to be in her shoes, just not sure if maybe the "obsession" might have been a little to much for me? In all I think it was a decent story and I did find myself wanting to know what happens next so I would give this book a 3.5 stars. This is the first book I have read by this author and I find myself slightly intrigued as to what she may produce in the future. 

Asher and Poppy are meant to be together... well in Asher's eyes they are... but Poppy doesn't quite know it yet.... but she finds herself very attracted to this man....What will happen when the game Asher has started gets more involved and the truth of the whole situation is about to come to a head??

Get to one clicking to find out all the in's and out's of this story!
I have to admit, it took me some time to really get into this book, but it does start to pick up and there is enough action to keep you wanting to turn the page.

Asher has a secrets and I'm pretty sure he is certifiable. 

Poppy is convinced she has a secret admirer. The think that blew my mind though was just... who is so calm with the idea of a stalker? Who lets a 'stranger' do things to them? Poppy came off as desperate and flakey because of her willingness and her ease with the whole situation. 

But the craziness doesn't end there. 

This was a decent read but I can only give it 3.5 stars because of the slow beginning and the believability factor. If Poppy would have been more on guard, hesitant - I could have appreciated it more. Still, worth a read if you like a little twisted romance.
Endless Obsession by Alex Grayson is slightly dark, very erotic read.

Poppy has been working for Asher for almost a year, but what she doesn't know is how obsessed he is of her. She is naturally attracted to him, but he's her boss and she doesn't want to cross that line. But who is sending her the sterling roses each week? Who is the mystery man who keeps texting her?

Asher has been in love with Poppy since the moment he saw her in his friend's office, and now she works for him, but his obsession doesn't stop there. He can't get enough of her and even stalks her. Is he the only one obsessed though? Is someone else stalking his woman?

The book is well written and the characters were developed, but while the story was dark and i kept shaking my head, the ending seemed rushed. 3.5 stars. If you like a darker read, then this is the book for you.
