Title: Rebel Obsession
Former cobalt addict and AKM drug counselor, Io is a male vampire known as much for his abrasive personality as for his playboy lifestyle. In other words, he's not the likeliest to make friends and settle down. Life on the edge suits him, and he lives full throttle, making his own rules, and damn the consequences. What he wants, he takes, and what he wants now is Miriam. If only he can find a way to see her again without getting himself killed, but her father stands in the way.
Miriam is the daughter of the king. Strong-willed and defiant, she feels like a prisoner in her own home and struggles to break free from under her father’s oppressive hold. The king’s law surrounding Miriam is explicitly clear: No one touches her. Period.
In a fit of rebellion, Miriam has turned to cobalt to find relief and freedom, but now she’s a prisoner to addiction as much as to her father’s strict control. What's more, she can’t get sexy Io, who tended to her so gently as she recovered from her first overdose, off her mind. Will she ever see him again?
When Miriam overdoses a second time, she and Io are thrust back together, and all bets are off. Seeing each other was the one thing both wanted, and not even the king’s laws and threats of punishment will be enough to defuse their rebellious obsession with one another now that they’ve found each other again, even if the consequences are death.

So Io finally gets his story and I was really looking forward to it. I knew it would be a difficult trip for him and Miri especially since Io feels like he just lost his best friend. I think Miri is my favorite female so far in this series. She is having trouble finding herself under her father’s rule and turns to drugs to escape. She is very strong though and the reader is shown how she starts to grow and discover herself as Io slowly introduces her to another world.
This story really shows how some families deal with crisis and the royal family is no different. The king believes if he doesn’t acknowledge the problem with his daughter it will go away. I appreciate how the author included this in the story since many people deal with problems this way and it never works out. I also loved how the danger was revived from a past story and with the introduction of some new characters this seems to be the fuel for future books. I can’t wait!
I liked how the author wrapped up the end in this story for Io and showed how King Bain may finally have his eyes open to his people. After a major discovery towards the end of this book pertaining to the drecks, I can’t wait to read the next book to see where that action is going to take us. I also look forward still to reading Trace’s story it sounds promising.
This story was also a great set up for Malek’s story and boy does he need it. There are issues that needs addressed and he is being stubborn with letting the past go. I am also curious what the introduction of Maddox to this story is going to bring about. All in all my favorite story so far in the series and I can’t wait to continue it. There wasn’t anything that I would have changed.
