REVIEW - Need Me (Dark Obsession #3) by Cynthia Eden
Release Date: 27 January 2015
The cops think that Julianna Smith is a murderer. No one will listen when Julianna claims she’s innocent, and as the suspicions mount against her, only Julianna knows the truth…a killer is hunting her. Somewhere in the darkness, a stalker is closing in and preparing to deliver a final justice that she can’t escape.
He’s her only option.
Devlin Shade isn’t a man who trusts easily, and when Julianna Smith walks into VJS Protection, he’s well aware of her reputation—the sexy blond could be a cold-blooded murderer. Only when he looks at her, cold is the last thing that Devlin feels. There’s an instant attraction between them—hot, fierce, primal. And he agrees to take her case. He’ll be her bodyguard. He’ll keep her safe from the enemy hunting her, and he’ll also find out the truth about the mysterious Julianna. If she is a killer, he’ll turn her over to the cops himself.
She can’t let him get too close...
Julianna knows that she is walking a dangerous line with Devlin. She never expected to want him so much, and as they grow closer, she realizes that he’s working to uncover her secrets. But the secrets that she carries are worth killing for…and she can’t let anyone discover the truth, not even Devlin.
Killer or victim...
Soon the thin line between right and wrong is blurred. For Devlin, the case becomes personal, and all that matters is Julianna—keeping her safe and stopping the stalker who is on her trail. As he slides deeper into Julianna’s dangerous world, Devlin’s own darkness rises up. He’s played the good guy for so long, but now his mask is falling away. He isn’t controlled, he isn’t safe, and when Julianna is threatened, he will cross any line to keep her safe.
Some needs can push you to the edge of sanity...

Book three in this series carries on exactly where book two finishes and continues to dive right into the action where VJS are hired and somehow the characters link up to know other characters.
Julianna is a victim who is being targeted by a stalker an is also being investigated for the murder of her late husband. But the case had previously been against the prosecutor now now to have fabricated or lost evidence and so her case is up in the air.
Devlin is the only remaining VJS member that has not fallen for one on his clients, however like the other two he falls, and falls hard. He see's when he needs to be soft and hold back as Julianna struggles with her past, but he also shows her enough emotions and deeds to say that he is a man to be trusted and that he would do anything for her.
Julianna is a wounded woman who has come out of a marriage of entrapment. Once she said 'I do' her life went to hell, and even though her husband is now dead, it appears that someone wants her dead too.
It doesn't take long to realise that Devlin has her best interests at heart, and she too falls hard for him and stands up for those she loves when she needs to.
A really good read and the perfect ending to the series.
