Ari is going to maul your heart and stalk your senses. ~ Shabby, BookBistroBlog

This is how a dark stalker book should be written!! This was top notch!! In a league of its own!! ~ Kitty Kats Crazy About Books

Probably the best stalker romance I have ever read! ~ I like Books Best

You’ll judge me.
Hate me and tell me I’m wrong.
Refuse to see how my darkness is what she needs.
While I don’t particularly care about your feelings in the matter, and while I pursue her despite the wedding bells that rang for another, only I can see how she is drowning beneath mediocrity.
How many times must I remind her?
It can’t matter that I am the person who ruined her life.
The man who killed her father.
The constant shadow that watches her sleep.
The lover who prefers dirty alleyways to freshly laundered sheets
She’s mine. Always has been. 
I’m the worst thing for her, yet I’m the only salvation she knows.
He had his chance to make her happy.
He failed.
He didn’t see how she was dying inside because he couldn’t know her.
Not like I know her.
I am her stalker.
Her protector.
And the only man that can bring her back to life.

My Review – 5 stars!

Intoxicating dark & twisted read

I was blown away by this intoxicating dark and twisted read – a stalker novel par excellence. Indeed, my dark heart did a happy dance whilst reading this novel! Once again Lily White has shown herself to be up with the very best of the authors of the genre.Ari, an assassin is alpha to the core, with no moral compass – he is paid handsomely to carry out his hits and moves on without regret to the next kill. Except the time he hid in the shadows, catching sight of Adeline mourning the death of her father. Since then he has stalked her, protecting her from harm, his obsession and need to own her intensifying to fever pitch as the years pass.

As for Adeline, she is the archetypal wild child, living her life on the edge. She senses a dark shadow in her life but brushes it off as she has her own personal demons to contend with. Marriage to a respectable businessman promises to give her the chance to put her youthful follies to bed and finally embrace adulthood. All the time unbeknownst to her Ari continues to watch over her…

I loved that Ari could not dismiss his obsession with Adeline, her personal demons calling to him like no other. Her marriage and its aftermath compelling him to take a more hands on role in her life – I just loved how their story played out. Neither can resist the attraction they have for one another and Adeline is not only ignorant of who and what Ari is, but is oblivious to the role that he has played in her past and the devastating impact he threatens to have on her present… As Ari seeks to set Adeline free once more will he replace one prison for another and what happens when the truth is out?

The novel is one of dark obsession, which quickly spirals into one ****ed up read in a way that only Lily knows how to write! Ari and Adeline are explosive together: their relationship is one screwed up hot mess. It’s a morally questionable tale, full of secrets and lies, suspense and sizzling passion, a truly addictive dark read. I was quickly rooting for a HEA for Adeline and the assassin Ari, the bad guy, the ultimate anti-hero. What should be so wrong just felt so damn right!

All in all a superb sizzling and suspenseful read. Recommended for fellow addicts of the dark side.

Please note a copy of this book was given to me by the author for the purpose of a fair and honest review.

Clearing my throat, I whisper, “I’m a married woman.”
“You keep saying that, but I’m not sure I care.” A pause. “I’m not sure you care either.”
He runs a fingertip along the curve of my hip, and I jump, my throat slamming closed as I attempt to hide the reaction.
“Are you planning on having any fun tonight, Adeline? Or has your life become so boring, you’ve forgotten what it is?”
I don’t answer him, but it doesn’t stop Ari from having his fun.
Another soft slide of a fingertip, this time down the center of my nape, the secret touch hidden by the fall of my hair.
“I hope you know I plan to wrap my fist in this hair the first time I sink inside you.”
My entire body shivers, my lungs struggling to breathe as he pulls his hand away.
Voice a low croon, he asks, “Will you dance with me?”
Swallowing several times before I can answer, I lie to him. “I don’t dance.”
But it makes me remember when I used to lose myself to the beat of music, the hours I would spend happily working myself into a full body sweat, my hair wild, my heart pounding. I’d felt so free then. So unencumbered by the weight of responsibility that came with being the wife of Grant Cabot.
“I think you do,” he whispers.
“My husband doesn’t dance,” I say, my voice firmer because it makes me angry to admit it.
A soft chuckle. “Then it’s a good thing I’m not your husband.”

Teaser

If I were a normal lover, he would hurt me, there is no question. But his voice drips into my ear, an awed growl, revealing the difference that makes me just as deranged as he is. “So wet for me.” He inhales sharply and then groans with another brutal thrust. “Always so wet for me.”

His mouth finds my ear, nipping at the lobe as his mangled, grunted words punctuate the movement of our bodies. “You know what I need, don’t you? You give it to me. You take me… Fuck! You aim to tame me…”

I close my eyes, savoring the violent contrast of gnashing teeth, and broken groans, and sweat as his body ruthlessly claims mine. The sex isn’t about pleasure—I know that. I’m climaxing anyway, biting a mouthful of sheets to silence my cries as every muscle goes taut. I see stars, speckling my vision as he grunts, slamming inside me one final time.
