Goodreads | Amazon | B&N
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.
The 4th book in the Dark Obsession series tells the story of bad boy Ethan and Carly, Julianna’s sister.

This was a special book for me as we don’t often get to read the villain/bad boy’s side of story. Ethan has been the series bad boy since book #1. In the previous book, Need Me, Carly’s sister was in danger and so Carly and Ethan met once again. We never really knew the real Ethan until he encountered Carly again.

Ethan travels to New York to do what he should have done long ago, protect Carly. After everything Carly has been through she just wants to live as normal as she can manage. She wants nothing but to forget her past, especially the secret she and Ethan share.

I just loved Ethan and Carly. Ethan wanted to protect her but it was Carly who really protected him all these years. Both main characters were a mystery. They might share a deadly secret but each had their own too. Carly was a very complicated character, even more than Ethan but he was the real enigma. Uncovering their past was like riding a roller coaster. Unpredictable!

They were strong, brave and courageous. Ethan wasn’t a villain not to this story and not to the ones before. Circumstances forced him to take actions that he may regret but at the time were necessary. The tension is palpable from the beginning and yet you will never guess what’s coming next.

In Beware of me we also get to see Victor Monroe, Sophie and Lex and Faith. Good news is that Victor will be getting his story in Mine to Protect, perhaps with Zoe?! I really want to read Victor’s story. He seems like an alpha male type of a guy and every time Zoe’s name is mentioned in the book he was like a berserker. He is going to be a fierce main character. I wish we could get some more info about Faith too (maybe even her cousin, Charles). I didn’t think we would see her again but she really has an important role in the book.

Beware of me isn’t your typical romance book. It has many surprises, much suspense, action, mystery and many more twists. Who is the villain is the villain’s book? That’s for you to find out.

I can’t wait for more.

Highly recommended!
