ARC Reviews


Obsession by Sharon Buchbinder. Romantic Suspense/Thriller. My Review.


A year after a barbaric childbirth, complete with a near-death experience and an encounter with her guardian angel, Angie Edmonds is just happy she and her son, Jake, are alive. She's finally in a good place: clean, sober, and employed as a defense attorney. But at the end of a long work day, she finds herself in a parent's worst nightmare: Jake has been kidnapped and taken across the Mexican border by a cult leader who believes the child is the "Chosen One."

Stymied by the US and Mexican legal systems, Angie is forced to ask the head of a Mexican crime syndicate for help. Much to her chagrin, she must work with Alejandro Torres, a dangerously attractive criminal and the drug lord's right-hand man. Little does she know Alejandro is an undercover federal agent, equally terrified of blowing his cover--and falling in love with her.

Angela Edmonds is in Mexico trying to find someone to help her find her son. Her crazy father is the leader of a cult that is in hiding in the Mexican wasteland.  The authorities in USA won't help her.  Only Isabel Ramirez who is in charge of the underworld in the region can provide the men and weapons needed to rescue her baby.
Alejandro Espinosa Santoyo  is a crooked accountant working for the Mexican boss lady.( Or is he ? ).  He can't help but feel sorry for the desperate mother, but he must keep his eye on the bigger fish.
A really good romantic suspense with lots of danger for our protagonists.  Our heroine has had a very difficult life, and thought she had sorted it. That was until her crazy parents kidnapped her son.  She doesn't realise her son is a very special boy. The indigenous people will also play a big part in this story. Our hero is hiding a big secret, and personal reasons for his work.
I was hooked from the first page until the end. I couldn't see how this was going to work out. I also liked the boss lady, I want to learn more of her story. A very intriguing story. I loved it.


After working in health care delivery for years, Sharon Buchbinder became an association executive, a health care researcher, and an academic in higher education. She had it all--a terrific, supportive husband, an amazing son and a wonderful job. But that itch to write (some call it an obsession) kept beckoning her to "come on back" to writing fiction. Thanks to the kindness of family, friends, critique partners, and beta readers, she is published in non-fiction, as well as contemporary, erotic, paranormal ,and romantic suspense. When not attempting to make students, colleagues, and babies laugh, she can be found herding cats, waiting on a large gray dog, fishing, dining with good friends, or writing.
