Ritual Obsession (Blood Obsession Book 1) by R.L. Dunn – Review by Tracy Manderson

Rivals (Mafia Elite, #7)Rivals by Amy McKinley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have read all the book in this series and I don’t know which one I like best and cant believe it’s the last book in the series. The characters are strong they have to be in their world. I love the little quirks and the way they play off each other makes them somewhat real. This book had it all action, tension, betrayal, romance.
But no one in the Mafia is innocent.
The New York Mafia princess Mia Tucci is an enemy, when she comes to barters information that could take down her family’s operation, Nico is too intrigued to turn her away. And as they get to know one another, his defenses fracture, tempting him to give her his trust and helping he with cost him.
The only hope he has at saving her is make her his in every-way from her family.

Before reading make sure to read the trigger warning**

I enjoyed this first book in a new series by an author I had never read before. It ends in a suspenseful way and I will definitely want to know what happens next. It was a quick, easy read that kept me engaged.

I wasn’t too sure about this one when I decided it to add it to my collection to read. I am a little unsure on my review on this one.

Firstly it has a trigger warning – I somehow missed this fact when I read the blurb and I found it quite confronting on a personal level.

Secondly – when reading a series I always make sure I have the next book or two so that if there is unresolved business I can read on. Having said that the unresolved business may not even feature in the next book….

Having said that I absolutely loved this book. It’s the first that I have read by this author but I am definitely going to keep an eye open for the next one in this series.

It’s a good read!

So before I start I just want to say 3 things

1) Pay heed to the content warning

2) Have nerves of steel . Expect the unexpected. Have a strong i constitution.

3 There’s a cliffie!

Ok so I was as keen as mustard to get into this book and at a stage I felt it was a little slow but man hang in there you will not be disappointed!

Bobbi has a lot going on in her life then you add a new job , new people , new department oh and a deranged serial killer … quite the combination

There’s a lot going on and I don’t say that in a bad way , it keeps you interested . I like Bobbi and Max as individuals and as a team . I felt both horror and sadness for victims , survivors and their families . There’s we’re also characters that bought out the ugly in me , like I would not spout on them if they were on fire , real nasty folk …

So before I devour the read I’m letting my nerves settle ❣️📕😱

First, let me say I like that it’s made in the mid-1990s which drew me in alone. Second of all, the action surrounding these partners trying to catch a killer makes your heart race even further but it’s also a connection between the characters as we witness their friendship intensify right before our eyes. The story, the action, the characters: All of this won’t let you put this one down. Get into it!

Mystery, Romance, Drama, Friendships, Murder – this book has it all! I thought I would be on the fence with this book and ended up absolutely loving it. I could not put it down and found one of my new favorite authors.

Bobbi is a strong-willed woman that came from a rich family, as everyone reminds her constantly. She is trying to make her own way in life after finding her passion for becoming a police officer. Her partner, Rose, is one tough lady who takes every task head on and accepts no excuses. Most of the guys in the precinct have eyes for Bobbi but only one catches her attention, Max. He feels he has finally found The One when they begin their relationship, but can he protect her from the Bathtub Murderer?

It took me a beat to warm up to this story in the beginning, but once it got going, I was hooked for good. I’m ready for the second book as soon as possible to find out what happens next. You won’t regret picking this up!

I have mixed feelings about this story. I was sucked in immediately with the tough female detective not taking crap from her newbie partner and her new partner also female wanting to prove herself and thrive at being a cop. Where it starts to get a little frustrating for me is with the different point of views and all of the relationships. Rose and Marco, Rose and Brian. Rose and Marco again. I don’t really feel like that added anything to the story. Then the situation with Bobbi and her ex while the actual case they are working on is playing out. There is no way after the events that took place she should have been allowed to go undercover to catch a guy that’s going around killing and raping women. I still can’t grasp my head around it. She’s still getting help for her personal situation which they all know about and still went with the plan? Other than those things I did enjoy the story. The villain is smart and clever. It frustrates me that he hasn’t been caught yet but that’s what kept me reading. That and the relationship between Bobbi and Max. I think Max is the most realistic character in the story. He’s not a Prince Charming. But he’s trustworthy, loyal, caring, and loving. He proves over and over again that he’s good for Bobbi. His reactions to different situations are realistic. Overall the book is a page turner. Once the story starts unfolding you won’t want to out the book down.

**This book comes with a trigger warning for violence against women, sexual encounters, and murder** Ritual Obsession is the first book in the Obsession series and centers around a rookie detective (Roberta, or Bobbi) who is placed into a prominent case. There is a serial killer on the loose, targeting beautiful hazel eyed, brunette women. He is leaving behind no clues at all, and is stumping the detectives at every turn of the coin. Bobbi, who looks exactly like his targets, decides to go undercover to try to lure out the killer, against others’ advice. I really liked that this book has a female detective as the main character, as opposed to the broody males in most other books. Romance thrillers are not typically what I pick up but this one seems very well balanced and not TOO much smut, or focusing only on that. There was also quite a bit of “filler” material, I think, or things that felt like it wasn’t necessary and just kind of rattled on. This wasn’t frequent enough to have me give up on it, and I am glad I pushed through. I also love stories that have multiple POV so you can get the “whole story” and not one character’s take on a situation. I wasn’t thrilled that the book ends on a cliffhanger (no spoilers!) but it has enticed me enough that I will be picking up the second book to get the rest of the answers!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Ritual obsession is a romantic suspense but from the book description I was expecting more of a ‘scary’ ‘cultish’ type story and it only barely scratched the surface of that with the crime they were trying to solve. If you are in any way, shape, or form sensitiveto rape, abuse against woman, etc., I would absolutely heed the content warnings here. Rose wasn’t my favorite character but I see why she is the way she is in the field she was in ms I think having Bobbi as a partner ended up being good for her. I was really rooting for Max. Overall, I enjoyed the book although the first couple chapters were slow it did start to pick up and hold my attention through to the end.
