First of all I would like to thank Isobel for asking me personally if I wanted to review this book for her, so THANKS SO MUCH Isobel.
The second book in Isobel’s Issues book series which sees 18 year old Grant Blue’s life post high school graduation become like a film in which astronauts get cut loose and drift into space. Most teenage guys would be glad to have a few weeks of vacation so they can spend more time with their gorgeous if unpredictable girlfriend as well as to participate in a much coveted internship that will shoot him to the top of his class when he starts college in the fall.
This however is not the case for Grant because he can’t seem to stop counting the reasons why he can’t do the things that considered normal for guys of his age, why he shouldn’t want the things he wants. why he doesn’t deserve to be called ‘perfect’. Grant is tired of not on;y trying to live up to his parents’ expectations but also carrying his lifelong secret the one that he’s betting that future employees, work colleagues and fellow students wont understand, let alone the girl he’s falling for, who thinks he’s ‘too good’ for her. She couldn’t be more wrong.
Because the perfect student, the perfect son, the guy ‘most likely to succeed’…is about to crash and burn.
OBSESSIVE is Book Two in the “Issues Series” by Isobel Irons.
STAR RATING: 5 Stars
First of all I want to thank Isobel so much for asking me to review this book for her and I am so glad you did because I absolutely loved it. It was the perfect follow on to Promiscuous and really do feel that this series as a whole will be a fabulous one if the first two books are anything to go by.
I gave this book a 5 star rating because I loved reading it thanks to the way it had been written as it kept me wanting more all the way through.
This book concentrated predominantly on Grant which was really nice because it allowed you to really get to know his as a person as well as to glean more information about his OCD and how it effects him. I thought it was grate that a character in book had OCD because it allows people who don’t know anything about the condition to get some but also for anyone who has some knowledge of the condition through knowing someone with it, like I do, to see how the condition effects different people.
It was grate to see Grant trying to take responsibility for the problems that the condition cause him as well as for the medication he takes. When he decided that he was coming off his meds and everything spiralled out of control culminating in him having a car accident which land him in hospital.
I thought it was a good twist to the story when we found out why Tash had disappeared when she told Grant the news that she as Pregnant. So it’ll be interesting to see how things pan out for both of them with the pregnancy then the baby once they have it.
