[Book Review] Want Me

Want Me / Cynthia Eden

Bad boys and naughty girls.  Sophie has a penchant for bad boys, men with a fuck-you attitude who she can ride for a night then continue with her life.  Lex makes a living protecting others, with his body if needed.  When Sophie's life is threatened in her own bedroom by an obsessed stalker, she needs help.  She goes Lex, and his company VJS for protection, but history and rumor haunt her and her friends, and some secrets are too dangerous to share.


A novella with lots of lust and a liberal sprinkling of explicit sex.  This book could easily be a paranormal romance with werewolves.  Lots of testosterone, hair-trigger violence responses, and growling.  No one struggling not to turn furry, but I kept expecting that to appear in the text.  If you like PNR and feel like straying into regular contemporary romance, this would be a good book to start with.

The resolution/revelation of the threat seemed a bit too pat for me, and involves what, a decade of obsessive stalking that includes murder of people close to Sophie?   

Want Me sets up the next book, Need Me well, and it seems to follow well on the heels of Watch Me, the first book in the series.
