Book Review: Deadly Obsession | Nigel May

What I love about Nigel’s writing style, is that is so addictive that you’re instantly pulled into the world he has created. I finished this fabulous book last night, and I was still awake a short while after trying to process what had just happened in this incredible book. As always with Nigel’s wonderful books, there is a sense of voyeurism into the world of the rich, the famous and the sinfully scandalous. Not only do get to see the glamorous side of things, but we also get see the gritty and dirty reality that so often comes with a world of fame, glamour and crime. Each character is so wonderfully connected without them realising it directly, that we are pulled along on this super fast journey of deceit, drama and delicious scandal.

We enter the world of Amy and Riley who are at first glance the perfect couple. There is an intense love there that seems so untouchable, until Riley is killed in a mass shooting at the Kitty Kat club. Not only does she lose her husband, but she also loses her best friend Laura. It isn’t until several months later that a handwritten letter dropped through the letterbox, and leads Amy to believe that her husband is still alive.

We then follow Amy on her quest to reveal the truth about her husband’s alleged death. Bought along the way she finds out a lot more than she bargained for, and majority of it will taint her views on some of the people she cared about. The twists and turns in this story happen at such a pace that you may want to get checked out the whiplash. There are characters you will love in this book, there are characters you will love to hate and there are characters that you will love and lust after and then the most scandalous revelations will flip that lust completely on its head.

This wonderfully written story pulled at my emotions and my salacious need for scandal and cater to both my needs with copious amounts of deliciously constructed story, characters and delicious drama. Nigel has once again created a sexy story that could easily sit so proudly next to the Queen of the bonkbuster Jackie Collins herself.

I gave this book a scandalously sexy 10 out of 10

About The Author:

Nigel May has been described as "the UK's male Jackie Collins" and is an author, TV host and journalist. His four fiction novels have all been published by Bookouture.

His first glam fiction novel was TRINITY, an action-packed blockbuster (or bonkbuster) about the lives of the rich and famous. Glamour, beauty, fame and celebrity mix with murder, intrigue and danger to create an explosive novel which gained incredible reviews and fans across the globe. His follow-up was the glitz-meets-grit whodunit ADDICTED which was also a huge success and once again dived into the diamond-dipped world of the mega-rich but showed that all of the money and fame in the world do not always make for a happy ending. His third novel SCANDALOUS LIES is steeped in secrets, sin, sex and scandal and takes readers around the world as a mysterious celebrity disappearance is investigated. His next novel, DEADLY OBSESSION, is a gritty and glamorous psychological tale that is dynamic and thrilling in all areas to the very last page.

His books have been Amazon best sellers, read by celebrities and fellow authors alike, and have proved that a man can successfully write in a 'bonkbuster world' that has always been a strongly female domain.

Nigel was the only male writer amongst 44 authors featured in the chart-topping, beach-read anthology of short-stories SUNLOUNGER. He also contributed a short story to SUNLOUNGER 2.

On television he regularly presents on UK shopping channels where he has built up a substantial following. He has also featured on Channel 4, C5, ITV and broadcast live from America. He is also one of the UK's most popular craft personalities, having launched his own successful range, A-May-Zing.

As a writer he has written for many of the UK's most successful magazines and newspapers, specialising in showbiz and celebrity, as well as writing on subjects ranging from relationships through to exotic travel.
