{Romantic Suspense Review} Want Me (Dark Obsession #2) by Cynthia Eden

Want Me (Dark Obsession, #2)
She doesn’t play it safe…
Sophie Sarantos has a weakness for dangerous men. She doesn’t like safe lovers—she likes men with a wild, rough edge. But Sophie may have attracted a lover who is too dangerous, even for her. Someone is stalking Sophie, slipping into her home, watching her day and night. The stranger seems to know all of Sophie’s darkest secrets, secrets that should never be revealed.

Out of options, Sophie turns to ex-solider Lex Jensen for protection. Lex is part owner of VJS Protection, Inc., and Sophie hires him as her bodyguard. She thinks Lex is one of the “good guys” out there, but she couldn’t be more wrong.

He doesn’t play at all…

Lex has his own secrets. Dark, deadly secrets. And as his feelings for Sophie grow, Lex knows that he is going to have to stop pretending to be a gentleman and, instead, he’ll have to show Sophie who he really is. A man trained to kill. A man too used to evil. A man who will take any risk…as long as he can claim Sophie.

Because there is one thing that Lex wants in this world…one person he desires above all others…Sophie. And no one will hurt her, not on his watch. (Blurb via Goodreads)

{Rating} 4/5 - I really liked it!
"Sophie Sarantos woke instantly, knowing the she wasn't alone." (page 1, line 1)
Want Me is full of drama and suspense, add in sizzling attraction and hot, angry sex and you've got a recipe for a thrilling read.

Sophie is smart, savvy, and full of secrets. The lessons learned from her horrible childhood are that there aren't any happy endings, that one night is enough to spend with any man and not to let anyone - except her best friend Ethan - get too close. Alpha male Lex isn't the bad guy he claims to be, nor is he a gentleman, but he's honorable, devoted, protective and determined to keep Sophie safe with everything in him. I liked Sophie and Lex together, their baggage matches up well, they're both fiercely loyal fighters who when they finally fall in love, fall hard.

The mystery did not disappoint. The storyline moved quickly, keeping my attention as well as keeping me guessing as to who the villain was. Want Me also set up the next book in the Dark Obsession series, Need Me, Dev's story, which I can't wait to read.
