Forbidden Obsession by J.A. Owenby is now live!
Jagger Whitlock is my worst nightmare.
He’s a straight-up asshole who lives to torment me, and he’ll stop at nothing to punish me over the smallest slight.
When he digs up a sex tape starring—you guessed it—me, he takes bullying to a whole new level, using it to blackmail me into doing his bidding.
If the video gets out, it will ruin me.
But my stepbrother makes it clear that he doesn’t give a damn.
He drags me deep into his dark and twisted world, showing me the monster he hides beneath his handsome exterior, taking risks that put our lives in danger.
I thought I knew the devil I lived with.
I was wrong.
But so is he.
He thinks I’m nothing more than a pampered princess, but soon he’ll realize I’m a Queen.
And it’s time I put Jagger in his place.
This full-length novel is a forbidden, bully, enemies-to-lovers standalone featuring an asshole stepbrother and a feisty heroine. Packed with heat and heart, no cheating, no cliffhanger, and a happily ever after guaranteed!

Ari loves to spend her Daddy’s money, party hard and indulge in all things risqué. She is ready to start her summer off right. The first few pages of this book certainly let us know that the steam in this book is going to be off the charts hot. A limo “ride” no one will ever forget…especially when Ari finds out there is a video of what went down. Unfortunately for her, her annoying but extremely hot stepbrother Jagger is in possession of this video.
“I wasn’t a princess. I was a fucking queen. It was time to put Jagger in his place once and for all.”
Jagger is home for the summer and things are about to get very interesting. He and Ari always had sort of a love/hate relationship. The sexual tension between these two is crazy intense from the get-go. Right away we know Jagger wants Ari in his arms and in his bed. But the way he goes about their forbidden romance is to bully her into doing what he wants. He is all alpha and super protective of her when a shitstorm goes down. Ari definitely can hold her own…that is apparent from the moment we meet her but when it comes to Jagger things are starting to change. These two can’t stay away from each other. Twists, turns and super hot scenes are non-stop in this story. Will their forbidden love last?
“Demanding and possessive was a new high for me, and I craved Jagger’s touch already.”
I’m absolutely obsessed with a good dark bully romance. The darker the better. You wanna throw in the whole stepbrother forbidden romance? It’s a hell yes, must read for me. This book had a lot of elements that I love. But unfortunately I wasn’t a big fan of how it all played out. I liked Jagger well enough. I was a big fan of the whole alpha stepbrother thing he had going on…but Ari? She honestly annoyed the hell out of me. This book was not at all lacking on the steam factor but I really didn’t feel like there was much of a plot. I found myself losing interest and wanting to skim the pages. I do like that they get their HEA but I couldn’t completely connect with the story aspect. If I was rating on steam alone it would be a five star read. But the rest of the story didn’t keep me captivated. This was my first read by this author.
“I realized that home wasn’t a place. It was a person. And wherever Jagger was, I finally understood it was where I belonged.”

Eventually, she longed for quiet and headed up to snowier pastures. She now resides in Washington state with her hot nerdy husband and cat, Chloe (who frequently encourages her to drink). She spends her days coming up with ways to torture characters in a way that either makes you want to throw your book down a flight of stairs or sob hysterically into a pillow.
