This is a very popular and highly rated series about Russian mobsters. I've listened to three of the books and cannot understand the popularity. It's a matter of taste, I suppose.

I would have to say that of the 3 books this one had the most arrogant hero. But, good grief, you couldn’t help but love him. Maksim was just so awesome. His idea about sex was a little off but I could certainly understand, considering his childhood.
I really liked Sydney, and I could see why she ran away at 17. She had come a long way since then. At first I thought she was a little selfish in not getting in touch with them but when they had her declared dead after 3 years I figured they weren’t too worried.
The one thing I liked about this book was that Sydney never had a TSTL moment, like Eva and Nika did in the other two books. Which happens way too often in books.
I got the impression that sex for Maxsim was going to be different so I know there was sex in this book but I just skimmed by it, which I never do. Once the word “dominant and submissive” was used by him I knew I wouldn’t like the sex between him and Sydney. But I loved the rest of the book.
Because it makes me crazy that every single romance has one thing in common, from now on, I’m going to mention the heroine biting her lip. Worrying her lip. Chewing at her lip or nibbling at her lip, or doing whatever to her lip. She bit her lip 4 or 5 times.
As to the narrator: Scott Schumaker did an excellent job on the different voices and accents for the men but he was just OK with Sydney's voice. Sometimes when he spoke as her he was fine but the next time he did her he kinda' sucked. He can only get better with time so I'll continue to listen to him.

What made the experience of listening to An Obsession with Vengeance the most enjoyable?
The characters in this book are fleshed out in such a way that they really engage with the reader. You find yourself thinking about them as friends though the Australian accent was grating.
What did you like best about this story?
I enjoyed the whole story. It follows on from the previous books and gives you a feeling of continuity. You find yourself wanting to know what happens next. It is very well set out.
Which scene did you most enjoy?
The scenes between Tegan and Lorenzo at the hospital and at her apartment. They have a real authenticity to them.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It made me both laugh and cry. Because the characters are well drawn and continue through the series you do form an emotional attachment to them.
Any additional comments?
I am now eagerly awaiting the next book in this series. So many stories needing to be taken further.
Love the continuing story of wanted med however the accent for Sydney drove me mad it constantly changed between a New Zealand, South African and very slight Australian detracting from the story occasionally
