"I devour every single delicious word Alexa Riley writes." —#1 New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Maya Banks
New York Times bestselling author Alexa Riley's first full-length novel shows just what happens when a strong, possessive man finds the woman of his dreams
I'll never forget the way she looked, so confident and sure of herself. I watched her from a distance. She wasn't ready for me yet. I didn't approach her and I didn't disturb her, but I never once took my eyes off her.
Mallory Sullivan is ready to start her new life. After graduating at the top of her class, she's landed one of the most coveted internships in the United States. Hard work and determination have gotten her to this moment of living the life she only dreamed of growing up in foster care.
From the start, I knew that she would be my greatest achievement, so the day I let her go, I set down a path for her. A path to me.
She never expected Oz to be the greatest culmination of those dreams. But sometimes fate determines who you fall in love with. Who makes you lose control. Who owns your soul.
And then you realize it wasn't fate at all…
I've wanted to care for and protect her since the first moment I saw her. I've constructed everything in our lives so that at the perfect moment, I could have her, could give her the life she deserves.
The time has come.

I am so excited about this book. I thought I was going to combust when I read the first 9 chapters in the sample that Alexa sent out. I am just waiting for this book to show up! I love Oz already.
This book is just everything
I love over the top insta love. Some people may love to long romance book. I do to but sometimes i just want that fantasy of just falling in love at first site and knowing it to. This book give me that. It was just the right length give me how it started to the end where i can get sleep at night when I finish it great book
Everything for her
I don't understand how I'm supposed to like a couple when the guy is a stalker and the girl is just stupid. She is supposed to be really smart but clearly has no common sense. This guy knows things about her that he shouldn't and she just lets it go. He is extremely jealous, controlling, and needy and she thinks it is cute. There is a fine line between an alpha male and an abuser. I think he has crossed the line. This is not the type of relationship that I find enjoyable. I don't like this story at all. It is clear that he knows her from the past but why not be honest about it? That would be the adult thing to do, especially for a guy who owns businesses and is supposed to be successful. Expressing himself and talking to people should come easy for him. I can't finish this book. This is my first and last book by this author!
