Review: Object of Desire

Object of Desire Object of Desire by Dal Maclean
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Maclean’s novels are unputdownable. They’re the kind of books that distract you at work because you can’t stop thinking about the characters and the story and wondering what on earth happens next.

Object of Desire starts with one of my favorite angsty tropes—the bruised ex-lovers being forced to work together. The emotional angst of the main characters is palpable and drew me in from the start. Maclean masterfully interweaves the romantic thread with the intense psychological drama and mystery, leaving echoes and reflections all over the place. It’s marvellous, and clever. And it packs an emotional punch that you feel right in the pit of your stomach.

Maclean has the rare knack of making you fall in love with her flawed heroes from the first page, even when they’re making very bad choices. I loved both Tom and Will, their emotional tension was intense from the start and lasted right up to the very last page.

Good job there’s a third book on the way in this series, because I am seriously addicted.
