Release Blitz: Endless Obsession by Alex Grayson


Official Blurb: 

I’ve silently watched her for a year, staying hidden in the shadows, biding my time.
She may know me as two different men, but she doesn’t have a clue what I’ve done.
She unknowingly became mine the minute my eyes touched her beauty.
But I’ve done things. Things she may not be able to forgive.
I know all her secrets, her habits, her preferred coffee, what she does in her spare time, her favorite lingerie brand, even that she sleeps naked.

At night, I watch her from her window. During the day, I watch her from my computer. She innocently bares her heart and body to me, and I soak up every single fucking second.
I’ve stayed away, but I’m tired of watching from afar. It’s time Poppy finds out just who I am and what I’m willing to do to take what’s mine. She may hate me when she finds out my what I’ve done, but she has no choice but to accept it.

She will be my wife.
She will mother my children.
I will claim every part of her heart, body, and soul.
Anything else is unacceptable.
Poppy Lexington has become my endless obsession. I will become her uncontrollable addiction.

I have been patiently (not really) waiting for Alex Grayson’s next book, and believe me this book is so worth the wait. I was literally consumed with Poppy and Asher from page 1. My sanity is now in question … I am not joking. How did Alex make me fall in love with Asher? No seriously I should be really questioning myself because I love this book so much. I have been a hardcore fan of Ms. Grayson from her first book, but this book is like anything she has ever written. It’s the best book it date!

This book is told from both Poppy and Asher’s POVs, which is exciting. I wanted to see what was happening behind the scenes and of course I wanted a front row seat to the man himself in action. Asher plays a major role in Poppy’s life in more ways than one. In her daily life, Asher is someone Poppy has come to respect, but behind closed doors he is someone completely different. Someone who Poppy doesn’t know exists and someone who has become completely obsessed with her every move. Asher knows Poppy is his from the moment he sees her, but there are things he is hiding. It’s also more than meets the eye. There are secrets all around both Poppy and Asher and both are in for a wild ride.

Poppy is such a loving character. I adored her very much. Asher on the other hand… I honestly didn’t know how to feel. At times, I was angry and at times swooning. I swear Ms. Grayson has a way to make you fall completely in love with men you wouldn’t normally. She opened my eyes to a new love for Asher and I look at him completely different now than I did before. Yes, this story is a crazy ride from start to finish, but it’s perfection! I loved this book so hard and I can’t wait to see what Alex brings next.

This Book... Good lord.  This book...

Where do I even begin?  As an avid Alex Grayson fan, I knew that Endless Obsession would be something completely different from her Jaded series.  This book is tantalizing, sexy, and so loaded with forbidden stalker romance that I didn't know how to feel until the entire story unraveled.  

The characters are well-written and so starkly opposite that they work with Poppy's sweet innocent is perfectly balanced against stalker and dominating Asher.  I knew from the start that there was more to him that meets the eye and that what we saw was only scratching the surface on that makes him tick, and I was so right. I know there will be some out there who can't get past the stalking issues in the beginning, but trust me when I say that at the end everything will be revealed.  He has his reasons, and they're damn good ones for watching and invading Poppy's privacy.  

Ms. Grayson has knocked this new debut book out of the park and I cannot wait to dive into a new character from this world!

*~*~* 5 Stars *~*~*~ 

This was my first book by Alex Grayson, and I was totally in love with Endless Obsession from the very first page. Alex already had me interested and totally enthralled just from the blurb, and I couldn’t wait to dive into the world of a stalker. It might sound strange, but I found while reading Asher Knights POV, what he did was endearing and you can just feel all his emotions about Poppy. Yes, stalking Poppy the way he did was a bit unorthodox, but Alex writes it in such a way you can’t help but fall in love with Asher and his stalker ways. That and the fact Asher is not what you would expect. He’s an alpha male for sure, but he’s also rich, caring, a family man (swoon), and he’s not your typical billionaire character. The only way to fully get the Asher Knight experience is just to read this one.
Poppy I really enjoyed reading too. She’s been through a lot in her life, and at times my heart would break for her. She’s actually the perfect gal for Asher, even if she doesn’t know it. I will say, at times I was frustrated with Poppy because I felt she was a bit naïve, but at the same time, I tried to put myself in her shoes. It wasn’t easy but in the end I still really liked her character.
Endless Obsession is just one of the books you have to start with a very open mind. There isn’t too much I haven’t read that shocks me, but Alex really out did herself with this one. There’s a lot of passion and hot scenes, not to mention the twists I really didn’t see coming. I had some suspicions, but until it really came into light I was just guessing. I liked that about this one. Not everything is as it seems, and I can say I was hanging off the edge of my seat more than once. And the things Asher would say and do… Can you say swoon worthy? I really did enjoy this book by Alex. I’m very glad I took a chance on her because I’ve heard nothing but great things about her work. I’m definitely looking forward to reading more by this author and I would highly recommend checking this book out.

Unknown: Have you enjoyed the flowers I’ve sent you?

I freeze, except for my eyes, which pop open wide in shock. My breath gets caught in my throat when I realize this must be my mystery flower guy.

Holy hell! It’s him!

Why in the world is he texting me? After all this time, why contact me now? And what in the hell do I say to him? It’s become a routine. I’ve gotten used to getting the roses and not knowing who they are from. Question after question runs through my mind. Who is he? Why send me flowers? Why not introduce himself? Where did he first see me? How did he find out where I worked? And how in the hell did he get my number?

That’s my number one question, so I ask him. 

Me: How did you get my number?

It only takes seconds for me to receive a reply, and I’m not sure how to take it.

Unknown: I have my ways. You didn’t answer my question.

He has his ways? What is that supposed to mean? My chest tightens with fear at his answer. I push back the fear and ask another question I’m dying to know.

Me: They’re beautiful, thank you. Who are you?
Unknown: You’ll find out soon enough.

Umm… say what? Another question avoided. My eyes narrow in suspicion.

Me: I’m not sure I like that answer. I have no idea who you are. What if I don’t want to know you once I find out?

I notice the time on my phone and pull the second thigh-high up my leg, keeping my eyes on the screen the entire time. This is really weird, him having my number. I’m sure it’s not too hard to get the information, but it’s the point that he went through the trouble to get it. I hate being left in the dark like this.

My phone dings again, and I quickly grab it.

Unknown: You’ll want to know me. Trust me.

Trust him? That’s laughable. How can he think I’ll trust him when I have no idea who he is?

Me: It’s hard to trust someone I don’t know.

I slip my feet in my heels as I wait for him to reply. It’s doesn’t take long.

Unknown: You’ll learn.

Unsure of how to respond to that, I walk back to the kitchen to get a travel mug of coffee ready. He seems so confident, and cocky. Maybe a little too much, since it’s coming from a total stranger. How can he be so sure?

I type out my original question again.

Me: Who are you?

Unknown: Soon…

I grip my phone in frustration. Now that he’s contacted me, the need to know who sends me roses every week is overwhelming. It’s no longer a curiosity—I need to know. I should be more afraid, but I’m not, and that gives me pause. Why am I not more fearful? He’s obviously hiding something, right? But what?

He sends another text before I get a chance to reply.

Unknown: Have a good day at work, Beautiful.

What? That’s it? He has flowers delivered to me every week for eight months, messages me out of the blue with cryptic messages, then wishes me a good day at work? Pissed off vibes has my gut clenching. How dare he contact me and leave me hanging.

Me: That’s it? That’s all I get out of you?

I flip the off switch on the coffee pot, grab my now full travel mug, my purse, and with phone still in hand, I leave my house, locking it up behind me.

I’m buckling my seatbelt when he replies.

Unknown: For now, yes.

Oh no, that doesn’t work for me. He needs to give me something. He can’t just expect me to accept his non-answers.

Me: How do you know me? How do you know where I work?
Unknown: I know a lot of things about you, Poppy.
Me: You’re not helping your case of me wanting to know you. It’s freaking me out that you know stuff about me, personal stuff, when I don’t even know your name. That’s not normal. It’s pretty stalkerish, don’t you think?

I notice the time on my phone again and see I have a few minutes before I need to leave, so I decide to wait for his reply.

Unknown: Just call me Mr. A for now. Have a safe trip to work.
