Fallyn Mitchell is barely able to make ends meet working as a freelance reporter and if she doesn't snag a full time job or land a big story soon, she'll be living on the street. As if her life wasn't complicated enough, Fallyn has been plagued night after night with unexplained dreams of a mysterious stranger, whose presence is always hidden behind shadows. When the prominent, Simon Clairmont of Clairmont Industries, specifically requested Fallyn for an exclusive interview, something he rarely does, she thought her luck was finally turning around, but, of course, it could never be that easy.
Simon and his cousin, Reese, are Vampires, known as Eternals. They've had centuries to accumulate their wealth and improve their social status. Good and evil exists in both vampire and mortal realms. Simon, along with his faction, prides themselves on doing good towards others and ridding both realms of evil doers. The moment Simon gazed upon the beauty of this stunning, mortal woman, Fallyn Mitchell, he was instantly enchanted. He knew he had to claim her as his mate. Following her every move, protecting her from harm and even entering her dreams while she slept, Simon was obsessed. Unable to contain his desire any longer, he deliberately lured Fallyn to him.
What Fallyn thought was going to be a normal interview turned into a nightmare when Simon revealed his true nature. Shocked and dismayed she ran, jumping into the first car she flagged down. Of course, Fallyn’s timing couldn't have been worse, after she found out the driver was Simon’s malicious brother, Lucas, determined on revenge and world domination. Knowing what his brother is capable of, Simon is prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice to keep the mortal woman he loves alive.
Obsession Everlasting is an interesting and enchanting read. Lisa Phillips has created a unique and appealing realm between mortals and vampires. The emotional tension between Fallyn and Simon is heart felt. The characters are portrayed life-like and the plot stayed on course throughout the story. I enjoyed this story and will recommend it to other readers in the Paranormal Romance genres.
