Everyone knows Brooke Wicks loves to have a good time. She’s not interested in getting serious, settling down, or limiting herself to one man. So when she meets the sexy, irresistible Mason King, she sees another opportunity to let loose and go wild. But the gorgeous Aussie isn’t interested in just a quick fling with Brooke, and if she wants to get into his bed, she’s going to have to do it on his terms.
Loving fast and hard has always been Mason’s philosophy. He doesn’t want a meaningless connection, he wants it all, and he wants it with Brooke. When she makes her one desire known—to hit it and quit it—Mason wages a plan to ensure Brooke keeps coming back for more. Or so he hopes. Getting her
attention was the easy part. Keeping it might be damn near impossible.
Sweet Obsession is where the Sweet Addiction series meets the Alabama Summer series.

You go into it anticipating what’s to come, and you feel those butterflies of excitement as you dive right into it all. Then when you reach the end of that first chapter, and you’re hooked and so beyond ready for more, and you start to get that feeling.

Well I totally had that feeling reading Sweet Obsession by J. Daniels after reading the first page of this amazing, unforgettable, and utterly vibrant book, and by the end of that first chapter, I knew that I was reading what would be one of my top reads of the year, and most assuredly one of my new favorite books.
Sweet Obsession was the perfect balance of humor, heat, passion, and heart. It is an enrapturing story that is brimming with so many thoughtfully crafted moments that give you so much. You get moments that make you laugh out loud on just about every other page, moments that make your heart melt into a puddle of wonderful emotional goo, moments that bring a certain rosy kind of hue and heat to your cheeks in the most wonderful way, and so many extraordinary moments that you feel every vibrant and varied ounce of.
This book tells the story of one loud mouthed, wonderfully ridiculous, and utterly entertaining Brooke Wicks who I have loved since I first met her character in Sweet Addiction, J. Daniels first book. Along with Brooke you also get Mason King, who will melt your heart along with a few other things about 35 total seconds after you meet him. He’s handsome as all get out, he’s nice and caring times a millions, and he’s an Australian who teaches yoga. You’ve already fallen under his spell, haven’t you? Did I mention that he’s Australian, and comes packing an accent that is to melt for? Sweet Obsession follows these two as the sparks really start to fly. Brooke’s all about the hit it and quit it, while Mason is all about getting to know her and sharing something meaningful. This story follows what happens when the two of them simply can’t get enough, and have to decide what they’re going to do with the world of feeling, chemistry, and connection they share.
Their story is invigorating, passionate, filled with more heat and spark than you can shake a stick at, and has the most superb balance of Mason, Brooke, and all of their glorious words, and the incredible, authentic, and vibrant feelings and emotions they evoke and share with one another.
This book gives you it all, though that isn’t surprising to me in the least because every book that I’ve read by the fantastic J. Daniels have given me it all. Her writing and storytelling ability is out of this world phenomenal, and I have yet to read a book from her that hasn’t left me in awe. What she so fantastically creates and gives you in her mesmerizing stories with her distinctive and engaging characters is something you don’t get in every book you read. Her books, her words, her stories, and her amazing characters are just more, and I realized that once again while reading Sweet Obsession.
I loved this book. Like I love, love, LOVED it with every piece of my heart. I’m pretty sure while reading Sweet Obsession I had the most ridiculous smile on my face because I was just so thrilled with what I was reading with Mason and Brooke. They owned my heart the instant I started, and I honestly think they’ll permanently own some part of my heart for forever because they’re just that memorable. I still can’t stop thinking about them, feeling them, and loving them. They are two of my favorite characters I’ve ever read, and every word I got from this book was lively, all-feeling, and just very very them.
This book was truly unputdownable, yet the more and more I read, the more and more I never wanted it to end because I was hopelessly in love with everything I was reading within its extraordinary pages. It moved me, it made me feel, it made me laugh out loud hysterically immensely, and like every J. Daniels book, there was this effervescent spark weaving its way so perfectly through the story. That spark was vibrant and lively and distinctive to these characters and to this author’s writing style, and it’s part of what made this book so exceptional to read and experience. It’s not just a book you read, it’s a book you feel every outstanding ounce of. It’s a book with characters you breathe in, understand and fall so truly in love with, and one that you enjoy every bit of.
Brooke Wicks has to be one of the most out their female characters I’ve ever read, and her humor sure had my laughing like a hyena more times than I could count, and that is just part of what I loved about her. In Sweet Obsession you get the amazing chance to see a different side to her, a vulnerable side that oozes authenticity in such an endearing way, and I connected so much to her and all that she goes through in this book. I heart that girl something fierce for her unapologetic personality, her feisty spunk, and just her overall wonderfulness. She is such a true gem of a character to get to love, and what you get from her as she reevaluates her love life, what she’s looking for, and as she attempts to figure out what Mason is all about, is truly nothing short of spectacular.
Mason King had me at yeah. Like literally and when you meet his character you’ll totally get that. J. Daniels sure knows how to make a male character that casts one powerful spell, and I fell under Mason’s distinctive and heartwarming one in a nanosecond. He is such a good guy, and that goodness and care emanates from him in the most outstanding way. He’s also so beyond dreamy and will have you swooning at the feelings he gives you with every beautiful and meaning word that comes out of his mouth. And let’s not forget that charm that bursts from this Australian in spades. Basically, Mason is the real honest to goodness package that will have your heart melting and squeezing at everything he says and does and feels on his journey to make Brooke Wicks realize what they could share.
The connection that J. Daniels so thoughtfully and fantastically builds over the course of Sweet Obsession is just a part of what brings this magnificent book to life. She creates a vibrant and mesmerizing spark between Mason and Brooke right from the start, and you feel it build and intensify and evolve over the course of this book in such a way that just pulls you into everything they’re sharing. You feel and experience it all as they are because of how incredibly J. Daniels writes this book. You feel that spark, that distinctive and powerful connection, and you feel that passion and heat continue to build and build and intensify between them until it literally explodes in the most amazing, all-feeling, visceral, and of course, sweetest ways.
Let’s just say that I guarantee by the end of this book you will be loving Mason and Brooke. They have their bumps in the road, and they definitely misstep a bit on their adventure together, but through it all they are their superbly vibrant and unique selves that will have you loving and basking in every single moment you get with them.
Now I think one of my favorite aspects of Sweet Obsession had to be the fact that this book crossed over two of my favorite series ever that J. Daniels has so fantastically created. You have Brooke from the Sweet Addiction Series, which means you get all the fantastic people who come with her. Dylan, Reese, Joey, Jules, Ian, and Billy are all back and they are better than ever. You get the phenomenal chance to see what they’ve been up to since we last saw them all, and I will tell you now that you will love every bit you get from them. Especially from Joey’s character. I could probably write 10,000 more words at least on my heartfelt and unending love on his character. Seriously.
You also have Mason, who you first meet in All I Want from this author’s Alabama Summer Series, which means you also get a bit of Alabama in Chicago in this book. I loved that. I relished in that. Reading this book with so many of my all-time favorite literary characters together in one place made reading this book feel like coming home. It made this book more. It made all the feelings and interactions and moments they all share together that much more spectacular to experience, and I honestly could go on and on about how much I love all of these characters, and how J. Daniels so epically brought them all together in Sweet Obsession.
To say I loved Sweet Obsession by J. Daniels is practically the understatement of the year. This amazing, beautiful, and utterly fantastic book was one that I loved every word of. I could go on for pages and pages about my adoration of it, my heartfelt feelings and love for Mason and Brooke and their utterly phenomenal story, and my unyielding love for J. Daniels outstanding writing and storytelling. This book is hands down one of my favorite books of the year, and it most definitely gave me one of the most enjoyable reading experiences I have ever had.
This amazing book truly gives you it all, and it is not to be missed because what it gives you is fun, filled with life, spark, love, and so much glorious feeling, and when you reach the end you’ll just be basking in the wondrous reading experience Sweet Obsession gave you.
Let Brooke and Mason wow you. Let them light you up, and let you feel every brilliant and lively bit of them, because they truly are something else, something oh so mesmerizing. Let their friends win you over, let their interactions make you smile and feel until it hurts in the best possible way, and let them give you every exuberant bit of everything they’ve got. Let them win over a piece of your heart because you know you want to give it over to their fantastic little selves.
You know you want to, yeah?
