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 didn’t see how she was dying inside because he couldn’t know her.
Not like I know her.
I am her stalker.
And the only man that can bring her back to life.

Stalker darkness! An impossible piece of perfection! I started this and couldn’t put it down as the cat and mouse game kept me flipping the pages. A memorizing dark romance with thrills, chills and an assassin with a penance for a ‘little monster’ of a girl that he created, in part. Ari is a spectacular antihero (right behind The Director’s Ethan) that is a stalker extraordinaire as he invades Adeline during sleep and wake. But with Adeline you don’t know if it’s a waking or dream moment. Her condition was so interesting and perfect for this story. The question of what was real and what was a dream was masterful as Adeline lived in the in between with a passion. I was holding my breath as Ari’s slowly evades Adeline’s world and seduces her into a madness of pleasure and pain. Oh, he is a sexy ahole and turns her inside out with his torturous games. There’s always a twist with this author but this one didn’t have a big impact on the story for me. I love Ari’s fellow assassin Lincoln and hope he gets a story. And I loved that old friends Rebecca and Aiden made an appearance! I couldn’t get enough of Ari and Adeline and their hot chemistry. This is a fabulous dark and dirty stalker romance with outstanding characters from a spectacular storyteller.

“You can’t hide from me.”
Ari grips my chin and forces my face to his, our eyes locking in battle, a grin tilting those cruel fucking lips that lie and lie and lie.
He’s not lying now.
I slap at him, my palm slamming his cheek so hard it vibrates down my arm. Ari’s head snaps left, but then slowly turns back to me.
“What else you got?”
Slapping him again, I claw at his skin, but he pushes into it, enjoys it, doesn’t care about the blood that trickles in tiny little rivulets.
He catches my wrist and pulls my hand from his face, glaring at me with explosive heat behind his eyes.
“You used to fight when you were younger. I watched it. Wanted it. Enjoyed it. And you can fight me now all you fucking want just as long as you know I will have you in the end. I will keep you. I will own you because I’ve been the shadow protecting you all these years from all the other pricks who only wanted to destroy you.”
Our eyes remain locked, mine narrowing as he searches my face for any reaction to what he’ll do.
I refuse to give him one.
Mouth against my cheek, he nips at my jaw. “That’s it, baby bird, show me how much you hate me.”
