Synopsis from Goodreads
A MAN OF CONTROL. A WOMAN WHO’S ABOUT TO TAKE IT.
Reid Maxwell is one of the top corporate attorneys and one of the most eligible bachelors in New York City. He likes his wins big, his women beautiful and in bed, not out, and most importantly the deep burn of his past buried. Until one woman, a most unexpected woman, challenges him in ways that might just destroy the invincible Mr. Maxwell.
Carrie West is captive to Reid Maxwell and a debt between their families she doesn’t know exists. It should be so simple for Reid Maxwell. Claim the company that is now his. The problem: he’s now obsessed with Carrie, the daughter of the man he’s destined to destroy.
Now who’s captive to who?
Dirty Rich Obsession features Reid Maxwell, part of the Maxwell empire we were introduced to in Dirty Rich One Night Stand. Oldest of the siblings, Reid carries a lot of responsibilities on his shoulders and burdens no son should have to bear for their parent.
Caught in a family war much like Romeo and Juliet, Reid and Carrie are forced to work side-by-side in order to rebuild both of their companies reputations which have been dragged through the mud by both their fathers. Power corrupts and all of that jazz 😉. However, neither Reid nor Carrie are prepared for the intense chemistry that sparks between them.
Blindsided by their emotions, they struggle to understand the relationships that is growing between them. Unfortunately, their family situations and hidden secrets add to the tension between them and the inevitable heartbreak they are sure is bound to follow.
Although no-one expected just how deeply and how quickly Reid and Carrie fall for each other. Raw honesty where able allows them to build a foundation of faith, so when that faith is tested they have a clear understanding of each other. I loved how together, Reid and Carrie, are both better people. Especially how seamlessly Carrie fits into Reid’s family (by that I mean his siblings) and aids him in building bridges with his sister, Cat.
While there is an undertone of deceit within Dirty Rich Obsession, the story and relationship between Reid and Carrie is far sweeter than anticipated. Looking for some sugar to go with your spice – Dirty Rich Obsession has an abundance of both.
