Briana's pristine life has recently gone downhill after she realized her perfect marriage was a sham. Weighed down by the burdens of her impending divorce and the shame of being a "starter wife," the hysterically out-of-control Briana calls the number printed on a postcard for a limited-time offer at a distant lodge. Upon arriving at the sex vacation resort, Briana is confronted with all of her old hang-ups and throws herself into the pleasures of exhibitionism -- freeing herself from her heartbreaking past and the inhibitions that have always held her back in life.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. I'm not going to provide a synopsis as that has been successfully and repeatedly done by other reviewers. Rather this review will be a reflection my opinion and reaction to my experience. As an avid reader of many genres including erotica, I was all on board until the author got to the ending. This may be one of one of the worst unbelievable ending ever. After seven years of marriage, a person with OCD didn't sense or even recognize her husband' voice, scent, touch, face, or body; that I cannot swallow. Come on Devlin, the husband could have stepped out of the shadowed and been her final act on stage at the resort.
She could have been blindfolded on her final night at the resort and bedded by her husband or even her husband could have been the man who shaved her and made love to her on the stage. Hell, there could have been a masquerade party on her final night where her husband seduced her while she thought it was Malaki until he kissed her and she recognized and opened to her husband. There are many possible ending that don't rest on insulting your audience and characters. It is for this reason only that I rate the book with one star. One of the best of this series!!!
I love this book. Sex, OCD, cheating, secret identities all make for a wonderful book of sex, love, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder mixed into one.

Or should I say getting over OCD when it comes to love and sex. I am a 28 year old woman with OCD and I fell in love with this book. I love reading many books and by many I mean over 5, if not more. I highly recommend it for people who like love stories that go through a little tribulation. If you get this book make sure you get the other 2 that go with it or you will wonder what happened to the other women on the plane.

I have been a reader of Delilah's for several years via EC and some paper publications, and always found her a great read. This foray into a shorter, 1. I did not connect emotionally with any of the characters too many and found the erotica rushed and sparsly written. Go back to the short story manual and get a better editor. The concept of this book, a couple with a failing marriage, a wife with obsessive compulsive disorder, and a husband who doesn't know how to reach her is strong. However, the length of the book doesn't allow enough development of characters to be believable and the serious nature of the book's concept deserves more depth.

She's a clean freak to put it mildly , and can't give up control of anything or let loose enough sexually to enjoy her 8 year marriage. Her husband Jonathan thinks she's frigid. One day she comes home from shopping and finds her husband going at it with a strange woman in their bed. The sad thing is, what upsets her most is the mess they've made of the sheets and not the fact that her husband was with a skanky woman.
Obsessed: An Invitation Erotic Odyssey by Delilah Devlin
We learn that Jonathan has begged Bree to go into couples therapy with him for quite a while, but Brianna has always refused, assuring Jonathan that she'll "try harder". Jonathan has had enough. If this betrayal wasn't enough to open her eyes and show Bree that they need help as a couple, then nothing will.
He declares their marriage over and walks out. A few days later, while fretting about the demise of her marriage, Bree gets an unusual invitation in the mail: You are cordially invited to The Island, a place where your most fervant desires come to life with just one wish.
At The Island, we cater to your needs This invitation is given to a select few, and you've been chosen. You can contact us at to experience the fantasy of a lifetime. We're waiting for your call Okay, I can't say much more since this book isn't that long and I'd be giving away some spoilers. You know that Briana's going to go I thought she was a germ-a-phobe.
She got over that in a hurry. Just go with it and enjoy the fantasy. What makes this story a bit different from others of its kind, is the little twist at the end. I had a small suspicion about it as I was reading and I was happy to see that I was right when it came true. So if you want something plenty hot to read and you've got a few hours to kill, and you're good at 'going with the flow' when you read, you'll probably enjoy this one.
Obsessed: An Invitation Erotic Odyssey (Strebor Quickiez)
The writing was good, the sexcapades were smokin', and of course there was that little twist at the end. For an erotic quickie, this one was pretty good. Not for the faint of heart. View all 6 comments. May 28, Regina rated it really liked it. Obsessed was unique in that our main lady, Briana, was an obsessive compulsive. I've never come across that before. I was fascinated with how her disorder strained her married life and hindered her sexuality.
I got a good view into her insecurities, which I thought didn't relate so much to being OCD but could be applied to the average woman. I thought this short story was a great read. The fantasy backdrop was enjoyable and the sexual activities--more like sexual therapy--was well written and to Obsessed was unique in that our main lady, Briana, was an obsessive compulsive. The fantasy backdrop was enjoyable and the sexual activities--more like sexual therapy--was well written and totally hot. It came 'this close' to being a keeper.
My only complaint would be with the ending; although the HEA was there, I wasn't convinced with the way some elements were explained or how some were even written out without any explanation. However, it was only a small hitch in this otherwise very satisfying read. I give it a strong 4 stars. Aug 04, Patti rated it it was ok.

Had one of those "twists" that you see coming a mile away and are pretty stupid to boot. Briana jumped pretty quickly into exhibitionism and menage, considering her hangups, which made no sense. The only reason it got 2 stars was because the sex scenes were good.
