Sex, money and obsessive love – welcome to the marriage of millionaires Amy and Riley

Amy Barrowman grew up on the wrong side of the tracks. So when she marries millionaire Riley Hart, she can’t believe her luck. Not only does she have wealth and security for life, she has found true love. Or so she thinks…

Riley Hart is a Millionaire Man about Town. Men want to be him and women want to bed him. But to achieve Riley’s status, you have to tread on a lot of toes and make a lot of enemies.

When Riley is gunned down at the nightclub they own, Amy is determined to avenge his death. She receives a mysterious letter detailing a list of suspects including Riley’s sworn enemy, actor Grant Wilson. But with an obsessive passion brewing between her and Grant and a dangerous assassin trailing her every move it would seem Amy has opened a deadly and tempting Pandora’s Box. As Amy gives into temptation, the scene is set for a stunning climax.

Lose yourself where you don’t belong in the world of DEADLY OBSESSION.

Deadly Obsession is the first book by Nigel May that I have read and it totally exceeded my expectations, it was gritty, sexy, and scandalous and an utterly brilliant read. I can totally see why he has been dubbed the “male Jackie Collins” as his writing has that glamorous and slightly dark style.
In Deadly Obsession we meet Amy who is still grieving for the loss of her husband, her nightclub and her perfect glamorous lifestyle. Six months after his death Amy receives a letter handwritten by Riley dated just two days earlier telling her not everything is not as is seems and someone needs to pay for his death. Confused and upset Amy heads back to Manchester and her old life to try and figure out exactly what happened on that fateful night and if Riley is actually alive after all.  As Amy begins to unravel events leading up to Riley’s death she realises her life wasn’t as perfect as she thought and she’s actually treading in quite dangerous circles. Can she find out what really happened to Riley and keep herself safe?
I was hooked on this book from the very start, the mysterious death of Riley had me intrigued and the more I read the more I enjoyed it as more characters became involved and the plot twists kept coming. It’s a book filled with shocks and an ending that you just won’t see coming, at least I didn’t!
I loved how this book was written taking us between the past and the present so we could build up a picture of Amy’s life with Riley and now as she searches for answers. I also loved that others characters are brought to life in their own chapters so we gained the feelings and actions of all the main players in the book, making the tangled web around Amy even more convincing.
Thank you to Bookouture and Netgalley for the review copy, I’ve found another great author and cannot wait to read Nigel’s other books. I rate Deadly Obsession 5 out of 5 I loved it!
