His Sweet Obsession
That's the title of my new book, releasing next Thursday on January 15th from Whiskey Creek Torrid http://whiskeycreekpresstorrid.com. In the book, my hero has been waiting on the heroine for 15 years. Yep, that's a long time to love someone. Now my book is all about love that just takes a while to find its way, but it got me thinking about
obsession, you know what I mean, "fatal attraction" type of love.
Remember that movie with Michael Douglas and Glenn Close? That movie gave the world a whole new expression. Mention "fatal attraction" and I guarantee everyone knows what you're talking about.
I must admit that I had a bit of a "fatal attraction" once myself. Now it wasn't like that crazy woman in the movie. I didn't serve anyone rabbit stew or anything like that. But I do admit to being a bit more concerned with him than I should have been. lol Ever done a drive-by of someone's house? lol Yep, I've been there done that. Now I was in my early twenties at the time and it was all pretty harmless and love had nothing to do with it, neither did sex--he wasn't that good. lol
I also rode with a friend of mine once when she did a drive-by. You'd think I would have learned my lesson wouldn't you? Well, I was only in my mid-twenties then, so guess I can chalk that up to still not having the frontal lobe of my brain not fully developed. To make matters worse in this particular drive-by we used my car. Which, by the way, was a red Corvette convertible. Not too subtle. So we rode by the guy's house and he was sitting in his living room reading the paper and saw us through this big bay window. Yep! COLD BUSTED!
Once I was on the receiving end of a "fatal attraction". NOT NEARLY AS HARMLESS AS THE ONE I WAS INVOLVED IN. When things get out of control, it's not a lot of fun for sure.
So have any of you ever been involved in a harmless drive-by or followed a man or woman? And have you ever been on the receiving end?
In my book, His Sweet Obsession, the obsession is true love, and not at all obsessive, but just took its time finding its way. Love is never obsessive, it just happens when it's ready. I'm still waiting on my share.
