Aimee has good grades, great friends, and a hot boyfriend. But she also has secrets. Like the violent dreams that are almost prophetic. Or the real reason behind her Mom’s death.

Alan is new in town. Rugged, sexy, with a hint of Southern charm, he and Aimee connect immediately. Bye-bye boyfriend. But Alan has his own secrets. His Native American heritage gives him mystical, unlikely abilities. Not the kind of thing you show off in the cafeteria.

But it’s not Aimee or Alan who is in trouble. It’s Courtney–Alan’s cousin, and Aimee’s best friend. She’s consumed by a strange demon. Alan says there are four stages: Invitation:. Then Infestation. Obsession, and finally Possession. Aimee and Alan must figure out what to do, and quickly. Because once the demon takes full possession, there’s no saving Courtney–or anyone else…

(*To me this trailer looks far more intense and adult-ish than the book actually is. Which I think is a good thing as younger readers would enjoy this book.)
Debbie’s review:
This is an interesting story that takes place in the small town that Aimee grew up in. Life has been hard in the past but things seem to be all in place now. That is until she starts feeling a presence and then later something is going on with her best friend.
She has a past with the nearby river, it brings her both peace and terror and something is happening in the town and with her friends that she must figure out. Aimee meets new-comer Alan and is comforted with his friendship.

This was a fun read that took a different twist on the genre. The book is told from both Aimee and Alan’s point of view so it gives the reader a broader look into the intense story.- Debbie CranberryFries

    After Obsession is a book that’s been on my radar for quite a while. I’m curious about Courtney being consumed by a demon and the *four stages* :O

    Great review, it makes me want it even more lol

    Thanks for the review. I wasn’t sure if I was going to read this one or not, but I think I will. I like the cover which is always a plus. I also like a good twist on genre. It keeps me on my toes. Thanks again.
