Yaassa Jones’ ex-boyfriend Chejuan Jackson aka Chee has serious problems letting go. Although their two year relationship has been over for three months Chee refuses to accept it. He actually climbs into Yaassa’s bed at night to cuddle next to her, somehow finding his way into her apartment no matter how many times she changes the locks. What was supposed to be just a casual fling evolved into something way more dangerous!
Afraid of actually falling in love Yaassa always played it safe in all of her relationships, vowing to never become too attached to any man she was dealing with. But while still experiencing the afterglow from a heated love session Yaassa agrees to be exclusive with Chee. Initially the relationship went well but later on down the line Chee became possessive and violent causing their break up.
In his heart Chee knows that he’s wrong for his actions but he just can’t risk losing Yaassa. Having serious abandonment issues stemming from his mother’s drug addiction and subsequent death and then the death of the loving grandmother who took him in, Chee refuses to let another woman that he loves slip away. Succumbing to her sympathy for Chee’s rough childhood Yaassa gave Chee way too many chances to change. But eventually no longer able to deal with Chee’s insecurities or the physical abuse Yaassa finally ends the relationship. Or at least she thinks she has. But Chee is unrelenting and he’ll have Yaassa all to himself no matter what the cost!
Possession was an engrossing and quick read. Author Da’Neen Hale delves into both Yaassa and Chee’s characters and does an excellent job explaining the motivations for their actions. Showing just how easy it is for a woman to unknowingly become caught up in an abusive relationship. It also shows how a man who actually claims to love a woman can then turn around and put his hands on her.
