Book Tour: Review & Giveaway - Possess (Shamed #2) by Laura Marie Altom


Shamed # 2

By: Laura Marie Altom
Releasing December 23rd, 2014


Ella Patton and Liam Stone return in the breathtaking conclusion to the steamy, contentious love affair that began in Control.

Will you marry me? Those four little words should be a dream come true. But for Ella Patton, they’re the start of a waking nightmare. For despite the insatiable desire she feels for Liam Stone, marriage is out of the question—divorcing her abusive husband, Blaine, would be too dangerous to even contemplate. Besides, Ella couldn’t ask for anything more than the life she and Liam share: a scalding hot passion that’s totally outside the bounds of “I do.”

Liam has hit a brick wall. His fortune can’t buy Ella’s freedom from the oppressive monster the law recognizes as her husband. Blaine will take any opportunity to bring Ella back under his authority, no doubt exacting a terrible revenge as punishment for nearly slipping away. But Liam has a force greater than money and influence on his side: Ella’s love. She sparks his most unstoppable determination—and ignites pleasures that no man should be able to possess.

My Review:
This is the second book and picks up exactly where the first book ended.  This book is just as wonderful as Control and I highly recommend this entertaining series.  Ella will never feel safe with her abusive husband looking for her and even with Liam by her side she still fears that her new life will not survive her husband's wrath.  Liam loves Ella and will stop at nothing to make her is wife.  Ella and Liam's growing relationship has many hurtles, the largest being divorcing her husband and both hope that they can overcome them.  The story has a great blend of romance, drama and suspense from the first page until the ending.  I was holding my breath at times as I read this very dramatic and suspenseful tale.  I will say that readers need to read this series in order to fully enjoy Liam's and Ella's developing romance. ~Booklover Sue
