She’s beautiful yet scarred beyond repair. 

He’s powerful and lethal, in and out of the ring. 

One act of kindness brought Sophie Parish far more danger than she could have ever imagined. Now she’s on the run, leaving behind her family and the only dream she’s ever had. 

Retired EFC fighter Kolan Slade’s life has been one endless battle after another. He has a dark past with an even darker desire—the only one he’s ever known. 

Until he meets Sophie. 

Intrigued by her raw beauty and the secrets she’s trying to hide, Kolan craves to know who she is and what she’s running from. 

Protecting her becomes his obsession and he’ll sacrifice it all to save her. But in the end her love will have him questioning himself and everything he thought he knew.


Reaching my SUV, I place her feet on the ground and cage her against the passenger door, bracing both my hands on either side of her head. “And what about you, Lia?” I ask, dipping my head in close to hers. “Hmm? You know my secrets. What about yours?”

She might not know all of mine but she knows enough.

“What is it you want to know?” she asks, a slight tremble in her voice.

“I want to know who you are and where you came from. But more than anything, I want to know what you’re hiding under that scarf.”

The stark pain that enters her eyes strikes me to my fucking core. “Trust me, you don’t want to see what’s under there. I can’t even bear to look at it myself.”

“Nothing scares me.”

It’s a complete lie. She scares the hell out of me.

A heavy silence descends upon us, her pretty eyes wide and fearful.

“What are you so afraid of?” I ask.

Her breath hitches, emotion shining bright in her gaze. “Everything.”

There’s so much despair in that one word that I want to fucking kill whoever put it there. Unable to resist, I gently drop my forehead on hers, my jaw locking as I restrain myself from doing what I really want to do.

“I’m going to respect your privacy…for now. But one day, you’re going to tell me who made you so afraid. And if they’re still breathing—they won’t be for much longer.”

Her eyes fall closed, lip trembling as she tries to shield her pain from me. “Some secrets, Kolan, are best left unknown.”

“Not between us. The day will come when there will be no more secrets between us.”

Her eyes open, locking with mine, but she remains silent. I press my lips to her forehead then reach for the door handle. “Come on. Let’s go home.”

4.5 stars

An Act of Obsession is Sophie and Kolan’s story. Sophie’s life is changed forever when an act of kindness towards a kid at school leads to his obsession with her. This leads to a horrific event that leaves her with scars on the inside as well as the outside. Sophie is no longer the girl she was before and is just surviving day to day.

Kolan has spent his life fighting constant battles. He is a retired fighter who is currently working at the Men of Honor center when he meets Sophie. Sophie is curious about taking self-defense classes but asks for one on one training and Kolan steps in to help.

I really loved this story and I think it is probably one of KC Lynn’s best. I liked the progression of Sophie and Kolan’s relationship. They build trust and a friendship while he is training her and this is definitely needed because Kolan is dying to help Sophie and hurt the person that broke her. The suspense, villain, and resolution to this part of the story was done really well. I had a hard time putting this book down even though I kept saying only one more chapter. If you have read Ms. Lynn’s books you can expect a great flow to the story and a great hook in the beginning. The only area where I needed more would have been Kolan and his lifestyle through Club Annihilation. I think it was a big part of him and it was brushed over a bit and wasn’t weaved in to his current relationship with Sophie enough.

This story can be read as a standalone but of course you get to re-visit characters from her other series and it is always fun to hear their voices. You can expect Kolan to be one sexy alpha male and Sophie to be a heroine that is stronger than she thinks. If you are a fan or a new reader I think you will love this book. Well Done!
