Not my favorite Susan Andersen, but quick romantic slightly suspenseful read. I just couldn't like Vincent the male protagonist all that much, and I had a hard time figuring out why Ivy, the female protagonist fell for him at all. Andersen tries to redeem him with explanations of his past, but at times he felt to me to be the obsessive one as indicated by the title.
madman, sexy cop and beatuiful doctor -- all the makings for a supensfull romance.
A madman's game could end with her life. Detective closing in on his quarry meets an uncooperative doctor who stands in his way, and she is in danger from the madman.
This was an early Susan Andersen without her trademark humor. It was dark, and the hero Vincent wasn't always likable, but that is what made it interesting to me.
I enjoyed this book and I believe it is one of SA's best.
If you love romance with a twist of suspense, then this the book for you.
I really liked the suspense part of this novel and would have liked it if it would have been expanded. But alas, it is supposed to be a romance first. I know Anderson apologizes for being too long winded in this book but I really didn't mind. I love the character of Ivy because she is so forgiving and humble. Her family is colorful and fun. I would love to read more about them, especially Jaz and Terry. Vincent, the hero of the book, is the biggest jerk but somehow you want them to be together in the end. I think maybe it's because Ivy is such a sweetheart and you want to give her whatever she wants. She isn't a pushover, just patient and understanding. Vincent does redeem himself in the very end so I shouldn't be so mean. This book is darker than some of the other books (since it is about rape) Susan Anderson has written so don't expect happy smiles and flowers. Overall it was worth a read and I can't wait to read her other ones.
