I am Crux Malcolm.
And she. Is. Mine.
Have you ever heard the sound of your life ending?
A cell door slamming shut is the best way to describe it.
I killed a man. A bad man.
One who deserved far more than what I gave him.
He looked at her when she was mine.
He touched her when she was mine.
He broke her when she was mine.
I’m getting out on a technicality.
Now, I’ll get to make her mine.
She’ll cry my name each night instead of his.
She’ll feel my pleasure instead of his pain.
I am Crux Malcolm
and it’s my turn to get what’s coming to me…
Farren Hallewell is my addiction and I’m obsessed.

I’m not going to lie even a little bit. Writing this review was HARD. I connected with Farren like I did with Ariel (in Luther). I think I’ll always connect with characters that struggle within themselves the way these two have. I haven’t been in either of their situations physically, but I have emotionally.
And with the way K.L Donn writes, you don’t need to have go through anything to feel it anyway.
Obsessive Addiction left me raw and bleeding emotionally, it ripped me to shreds over and over again. Just when I thought it was over, that Ren would go skipping off into the distance with Crux and live happily ever after, I was ripped apart again.
Why? Because KL Donn has to write characters that seem like their broken, only to show you the true strength they have hidden. Despite the evil around them, despite the horrors they’ve seen and been through, inside they are stronger than anyone they’ve ever met.
I mean LORD, I was warned that this might wreck me but I didn’t really believe it. I mean, in most ways I did believe it because I know KL, and I know she loves to kill me, but I wasn’t expecting it still. Even though it was hard, I couldn’t stop reading. I was drawn in from the beginning.
The plot was so different, so unique, I was left obsessed as well. Crux was addicted and obsessed as well. Though Luther will always be my husband, Crux is definitely up there in terms of stealing a piece of my heart.
I loved every single minute of the painful experience that was Obsessive Addiction. In fact, by the end, I was ready to experience more of that pain just to read more of Ren and Crux. And I can guarantee, you’ll want it too.
