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.

I don’t know where to begin but with a WOW! Lily White is a new to me author and I didn't know what to expect from this book but it was absolutely amazing. There were so many emotions pouring from the pages and I couldn’t stop reading from page 1. I am a fan of well done dark romance and she just knocked it out of the park with this story.

The action takes place on an eight-year time span. Ari has been stalking Adeline since she was sixteen. Meeting her wasn't something he had planned but from the first time he sees her through the window of her house, Adeline becomes his obsession. Ari feels compelled to protect her. Sure there are other desires the young girl stirs in him but the need to keep her safe from other predators like himself trumps anything else. So he hides in the shadows and watches as Adeline lives an impetuous life, until one day when he has no choice but to make his presence know and steal her away.

Ari and Adeline's story is dark and gritty. He's a stalker and a killer, cold and calculated, but his protectiveness towards Adeline kind of makes you forget about anything else. He's ruthless, unapologetic, and sexy as sin. And Adeline is the type of woman that can match him. She's sassy and wild, a free spirit, a breath of fresh air for Ari. The two of them fit together like two pieces of a puzzle. 

The plotline is suspenseful and angsty, there is never a dull moment. The characters are relatable and have a lot of depth. The situations presented may trigger some readers, but if you can see past that, the story is enthralling. It's fair to say I'm absolutely hooked on Ms. White's writing style and I'm craving more. Fans of stalker romances, you're in for a real treat! I highly recommend this book.

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.”
