Obsessed With Me by Eve Rabi

Obsessed With Me by Eve Rabi
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Excerpt Tour: 6th - 31st January, 2013

Blurb: Tarago Jakobus was 6’4”, intelligent, extremely wealthy with a Midas touch. He was also openly racist, politically incorrect and a chauvinistic pig who told offensive jokes. He loved to party and was used to women vying for his attention. So when his eyes fell on Tanin, he expected her to just melt into his bed and be grateful that he even looked her way.
To his utter surprise, she was totally unimpressed with his wealth, thought he was an uneducated buffoon and publicly rejected him. Of course he was shocked and humiliated by her response.

But no woman had ever turned Tarago down before, and he found her fascinating. He became obsessed with her and decided to win her over his way – destroy all that is precious to her, so that she would have no choice but to need him. If that didn’t work, he’d switch to plan ‘B’ – take away her freedom and throw her ass in jail. And being the absolute bastard that he was, he did.
Obsessed With Me is a modern-day love story.

Excerpt: He shrugs. The flicker of amusement in his eyes confuses me. Is my life simply a game to him? Am I a monkey here to entertain this motherfucker?

“Is this why you had me fired? Is this why you’ve bought up the property we live in? Lied about me stealing …?”

He nods. I can’t believe his audacity. He’s not even hiding it. I press my fingers to my temples as I try to make sense of the situation.

“Sir, I am twenty-one years old and I am nothing like any of the women you date. So …why…?”

“I like variety,” he says, after a shrug.

Anger takes over. “What if variety doesn’t like you, sir?”

“Variety will, when her arse is on fire.”


“Do you need a translator?”

“No, I don’t need a translator,” I say in an indignant voice. “All this because I rejected your advances?”

“I do not remember making advances. I remember asking you to join me for a drink.”

I shake my head in disbelief. “So this orchestrated attempt …?”

“Kan jy Afrikaans praat?”

“No!” I fold my arms across my chest. “I prefer English.”

“Hoekom (Why)?”

“Because, sir, Afrikaans is the language of the oppressor.”

“It is also my language. Now, if you don’t mind, I would like to continue my surf and turf. Have a good evening.”

As he tries to walk away, I step in front of him and block his path. Opening my purse, I take out two one rand coins and slap them on the table. He looks at the coins, at my face, and his eyes twinkle.

Furious at his inability to take me seriously, I take out more coins from my purse and slap them in front of him. “Or do you need a note instead of coins? Huh?”

Again, he looks at the coins and smiles.
