You are already know about Own and the Wind and Love Irresistibly because I've talked about them for a while now. But there is one book that literally has my stomach in knots -- and that is Blind Obsession by Ella Frank. Frankly, I haven't read any of her works. I have a couple of her books on my To-Be-Read shelf but I haven't started on any of them yet.
Then I saw this blurb on Goodreads...
"Obsession, defined as the domination of one's thoughts or feelings by a persistent idea, image or desire....
Chantel Rosenberg's passion for music and life had never shone brighter than the time she spent in Bordeaux France. It's a time when feelings arose and desires ran deep, a time that fundamentally changed her life.
A man living in seclusion, Phillipe Tibideau is haunted and plagued by memories he cannot disregard. Choosing to live a quiet life in his Chateau surrounded by the vineyards of France, he's left his passion for art behind.
However, the time has arrived to tell his side of a tale. A tale that has depicted him as a 'beautiful monster' and he's finally allowing someone close.
Close enough to ask questions. Questions he's not sure he wants to answer. Questions about her.
For up and coming journalist Gemma Harris, the pursuit of truth is what drives her and when a job of a lifetime presents itself there is nothing in the world that will stop her from taking it.
Even if it does mean leaving her home for several months to stay at Chateau Tibideau, with him.
This is a story of what happens when three passionate lovers collide and the desire for truth, art and music merge.
Chateau Tibideau is a place full of unanswered questions, dark sinful desire and a beauty so hauntingly sad it will have you wondering how you will ever leave the same....."
I was intrigued. My curiosity is piqued.
Then I saw the video trailer...
And then I saw the early "spoiler-free" reviews (I can't post them here because they're not mine)....
Then I became obsessed with getting my hands on Blind Obsession that I tracked down every giveaways, basically stalked certain blogs including the author's in hopes of having this book before the release. (I know, I have no shame whatsoever admitting that!) I am so sold out on the premise of this book that, yes, I will gladly wait until April 9th in order to get my hands on it.
So I will wait. Patiently, albeit lightly obsessively (I'm actually scouring forum boards for spoilers!) for this book. I mean, good things do come to those who wait, right?
