Deadly Obsession (The Obsession Duet #2) by J.L. Beck & C. Hallman
We were only kids when I met him.
My stalker, savior, the man who protected me from all the evil in the world.
I should’ve trusted him, believed him when he told me he was only trying to keep my safe.
I thought the worst was behind me.
Little did I know the worst was yet to come.
Kidnapped by a man capable of the worst kind of evil I’m thrust into a dark and dangerous world where blood and wealth are the only things that matter.
I’m a pawn in the war for power.
The man I was desperate to escape from is now the only one that can save me.
I’ll do anything to be back in his arms.
He saved me once, he’ll do it again.
The only thing is, when the dust settles and all the truths are revealed will we be standing side by side?
And what happens when I find I wasn’t just meant to be in this world.
I was meant to run it…
Excerpt Deadly Obsession by J.L. Beck & C. Hallman
I don’t bother responding to him and he doesn’t wait for me either. Handing off the cane to one of his guards he shoves his hands into the pockets of his sleep pants and walks up the stairs. At the top he turns around and his eyes are like knives driving into my still beating heart.
“Try and escape again and you won’t like what happens, Dove.”
I steal my spine and curl my lip, “You don’t own me.”
“Ha, but I do. I created you, which means I’m your god.” He says and disappears into the house. His men slowly filter out and I remain sitting on the cold hard ground beside Zane listening as his breaths turn from ragged to nothing but a wheeze.
“I’m sorry, Zane. I let you down. All over again you saved me and I let you down.” I tell him as I sofly cry, the tears cling to my eyelashes making it hard for me to see.
