Due to being struck with the modern equivalent of the dreaded lurgy, I’m running late with a review for Rachel’s Random Resources, for Lisa Kessler’s amazing Lure of Obsession.
Title: Lure of Obsession
Author: Lisa Kessler
Length: 266 pages
Fated Mates meets Clash of the Titans!
Melanie Jacoby is the human vessel for the Muse of Tragic Poetry, but she isn’t prepared for the tragedy of finding her roommate dead at the bottom of the stairs.
Nate Malone is the detective assigned to the case, but as the evidence points to an accidental fall, the visions begin. He sees a killer in a gold Kronos mask.
Mel is the next target, but Nate’s determination to protect her is almost as strong as his desire for her.
And tragedy isn’t part of his plan.
The Prophecy – “Every generation the nine daughters of Zeus are reborn, and with their rebirth are also nine Guardians. They will be marked by the gods, and given gifts to protect his treasure. Their abilities will only be unlocked when they find their muse.”

I’m a sucker for romance and mythology so was really looking forward to this review. The concept is wonderful and overall I enjoyed the first book in the series.
Kessler throws you straight into the story, building layers as you delve deeper into it. As the first book in the series, it was a tantalising look at what’s still to come.
I could have used a lot more development of the MC and her own background, but I’m also a sucker for backstory. As a whole, the first book in what promises to be a great series is everything a romance novel should be: witty, sexy, and heart-warming. The mythology added a unique supernatural touch that hooked me from the beginning.
Fans of paranormal romances, mythology and mystery.
