USA Today best-selling 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 while 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.

Audible Addict!!! My Favorite books have change since joining Audible and my taste for erotic has enhanced! Follow me to the dark side. ;)
It's not a bad listen it just to Tyler Perry perfect for me. I love a rich man falling for poor girl but this was a bit stalker like for me. I can't give it a bad rating because the narration is good and the story enjoyable it's just the it's sooooo perfect. He is soooo perfect it's annoying . I'm sure you will enjoy it but by the end you will have a touch of diabetes.
I'm addicted to Audio-books!!
This book wasn't as good as others I read. The female lead character was to much of a push over. The lead male character, to me was super creepy falling for a teenager and inserting himself into every aspect of her life for 5 yrs . setting up her life so that she leads straight to him, and she simply accepted it and everything he did with hardly a question, made her seem weak. it made the whole story drag on and on. I won't be listening to the next book.
Can't finish it. Too drawn out. Oz seems to possessive & stalkerish. I don't like him from the beginning. They "fall in love" way too fast & unrealistic.
I have fallen in love with this story. I keep hitting replay at the end of the story. This is the best HEA ever!!!!!!
I am so excited there is going to be a second book, even though there is no way this book will dwindle in it's perfectness!!!
the only way this could be better is to have 'Jay Crow' read ALL of the OZ parts... and 'Summer Morton' read ALL the Mallory parts.
OMG, this book was laughable. I’m sorry but it was horribly unbelievable. The main characters just meet, there are all kinds of hints and red “stalker” flags, yet it was a surprise when it all comes to light that something is wrong with this guy, (and the way it is written you can’t chalk it up to innocence because of the obvious signs, only someone, who’s deaf, dumb, and blind (yes, all three, and while I’m at it, I’m going to throw in brain dead too) and wouldn’t be running from this him within 24 hours of meeting him. To make matter worsts, the way she finds out about the secret is ridiculous (you know a man for one week and think it’s ok to listen to his voice mail, really, who does that). Oh and let’s not forget, she meets the mother for the first time and within 10 mins of meeting her, the mother confesses to all types of personal family secrets (that would normally take several years of therapy for anyone else to even feel comfortable enough to talk about it)? Give me a break, it’s just all too farfetched. I love a quick romance, “I’ve been waiting for you all my life” book as much as anyone else, but most of them are written so well that one would believe it plausible, but this…….. The narrators do a great job of trying to make the story likable but it was so fake, all that is left was to have strings dangling from the characters (like those old fashioned space monsters/aliens movies, you know, the ones where you can see the alien’s sneakers once the camera zooms out). I rolled my eyes so much, I'm surprise they didn't simply roll out of my head. OK, seriously though, all in all, I think it has potential but the author needs to work on the presentation, maybe with a little more work it can be a real winner, this version is simply inconceivable (even the vampire and werewolf books are more believable).
Summer Morton should be reading biblical books, not romance novels with sex. She was terrible. Love Jay crow, therefore, will buy books he narrates.
Find female narrators who can make sex scene that are supposed to be erotic-sound erotic. Will definitely avoid any book she narrates
Honestly test your female narrators who will be reading books about sex. Many tend to sound constipated.
I loved this story. At first read I was wondering what kind of stalker? But the more I read, the more I felt like it was like 50 without the bondage. It was soo good. A must read.
