The bestselling conclusion to the Lion Security series is here!
Beth and Daniil's passionate love story reaches its ultimate struggle when Beth is kidnapped by Daniil's enemies. Dark and dangerous killers hold her captive, but the Russian mafia will stop at nothing for her return. With the whole world searching for the mafia boss' lover, her safety is paramount, and it's only a matter of time before she is found.
But will it be too late?
Can Beth return whole from her traumatic fight for survival?
Or will she be irreversibly damaged?
I received a copy of this story for an honest review.
The Lion Security Series is a rare gem of a series, where just trying to label it as one genre would do it a complete and total disservice. There's steamy sex, political intrigue, organized crime, layered mystery, familial drama and heart touching romance. Between hitting the sheets and hitting each other, the extensive cast of characters has kept me guessing and each installment has only stoked my fervor for the series.
What I Loved: So many bodies, so very many bodies. Author Scarlett Dawn went full tilt on her very bloody, very explosive conclusion to Beth and Daniil's story and I ate up every word. If you're squeamish Obsidian Music may not be your cup of tea but to me this crazy blood spattered installment signaled Beth's full rebirth into Daniil's world of the Russian mob. Watching Beth transform into a fierce mama bear willing to kill to defend the ones she loves was really satisfying.
What I Didn't Love: I love Beth and Daniil's extended family but for the conclusion of their story I would have loved a few more scenes or brief moments just focusing on the pair. I needed a slightly stronger reconnect for the passionate couple I fell so hard for.
"I nodded, feeling that glow of love inside my heart, hearing him. Seeing him. Smelling him - coffee. He still smelled like coffee."
"No one would ever try to take my babies from me again. If they did, I no longer had any such compunction about killing the bastards. It would be their funeral."
"You will live, or I'll follow you to Heaven and drag you straight to Hell."
"You are so wrong and so right for me."
I love, love, love the Lion Security Series and Obsidian Music was a solid conclusion... but if Scarlett Dawn ever decides to do more with these characters I will be there in a heartbeat. Obsidian Music should not be read as a standalone. Do yourself a favor and check out the whole series.
