When Lorcan left Quinn behind, Quinn found solace in the world of BDSM with the help of Ty, a sub he met at a nearby club.  When Lorcan returned, Quinn and Lorcan found their way back together again, and Ty found himself on the sidelines.  The anger building in the young man was heading towards a dangerous level when Blake enters the picture. 

Ty’s Obsession is the third story in the Whispering Pines Ranch series.  It is also one of those books that I can’t decide whether I liked or not.  First, a majority of the story seemed to center more on Quinn and Lorcan rather than Ty.  I’m not complaining, because I was glad to see more of these two. However, I was expecting a story about Ty, who almost comes across as a secondary character.  When we do get to see Ty, he does not come across as very likeable.  Does he have a right to be angry?  You bet,  in my opinion Quinn could have handled things a little better, but Ty skates real close to the edge, almost crossing the line into a psychotic break.  

Blake, Quinn’s neighbor who appeared in the last book, is paired with Ty, but has very little face time in this story, making it hard to form any kind of a connection to him.  As a Dom, he sees where Ty is heading and intervenes in order to help the younger man out.  Like Ty, Blake also has issues, which are centered around his lost lover and the BDSM world.  Readers should be made aware that when the truth about Eli comes out, it maybe a little difficult for some to read.  What time Ty and Blake do spent together is only as a Dom and sub, so do not expect to see a happily ever after.  There is a fourth book to be released soon, and I hope it will pick up where this one leaves off, as I really would like to see Ty and Blake come together in a loving relationship. 

This is one series that must be read in order and no way should the books be considered standalones.
