Criminal. Killer. Monster. Ethan Barclay has been called many things in life, and he usually doesn't care what people say about him. He's tough, hard, and brutal when he needs to be. But even the most dangerous of men can have a weakness. Ethan's weakness has--and always will be--Carly Shay.

Their pasts are tied together--twisted and melded by blood and death. Walking away from Carly was the hardest thing that Ethan ever did, but it was also his one good deed. He knew Carly deserved far better than him, and he wanted her to have a perfect life, a life that didn't involve paying for Ethan's sins.

Only now the secrets from their past have been revealed, and Carly's life is on the line. Ethan's enemies, Carly's enemies--the predators are closing in on them. But Ethan isn't going to let Carly be threatened. He will move heaven and hell to protect her. He won't lose Carly, not again, and for those foolish enough to try and take her from him...they are about to see just how deadly Ethan truly can be.

Author's Note: BEWARE OF ME is a complete, stand-alone story. All of the books in the Dark Obsession series are stand-alone titles.

This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.


By SparklesMs. Eden has consistently given me hot, action-packed and suspenseful stories since I had the fortune to discover her work.

While a standalone and easy to follow, Beware of Me is filled with connected characters from not only this series but others from this author, so I think one would get much more enjoyment if it were read after the others.

Ethan is a bit of an anti-hero, but he is hot, possessive, and hopelessly in love with Carly. He has been protective of her from everything bad in the world, including him, for a very long time leaving her to live a normal life. But now a threat from their past is forcing him to insert himself in her life once again, and this time he’s not sure he’ll be able to walk away from her.

Carly has lived through some very horrible experiences View Spoiler » but has built a life for herself little by little. When the only man she’s ever really wanted, Ethan, comes back into her life after many years, she wants nothing to do with him. Unfortunately, some kind of feelings are not so easy to deny, and besides, his is the only touch she can stand.

The suspense, as usual, is pretty good. I didn’t know who were the bad guys and who were the… badder ones.  Their chemistry was crazy hot, the action and romantic pursuits well balanced. A perfect example of Ms. Eden’s writing style.
