USA TODAY 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 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.

Holy freaking Smoke! 
I couldn't believe it when this landed on my kindle, I was like

I think since these two authors started writing all anyone wanted was more, more and more. And when I started this book I was so happy but also a bit apprehensive. For authors that are known for quick dirty short stories, would they be able to pull off a full length novel.

But honestly have no fear ladies, How could I doubt them

This book was awesome and amazing and so good!

Mallory Sullivan grew up in foster care and has had to work hard for everything she ever wanted. Because she wanted a better life for herself. So now she and her best friend Paige has just moved to New York City and landed an internship at one of top companies in the world, The Osbourne Corp in their accounting department. 

So Mallory and Paige decided to let their hair down and go celebrate their move and her new job. Once they are at the club, Mallory meets an intriguing man named Oz who challenges her on so many levels.
Unbeknown to her Oz already knows who she is and she has been the women of his dreams since he first met her when he was in college and she was in high school.

Miles Osbourne (Oz) has been in love with Mallory since he first saw her and has been taking care of her since then and now his patience has run out and he wants her a part of his life now.

This book was a classic Alexa Riley book, it still had all her OTT Alphamale-ness and everything that we have to love about this author. But now you get to spend more time with the characters getting to know them, their background what happened to make them the people they are.

And that's exactly what happened in this story. It's not just your sexy steamy insta love romance, it has drama and so much more. We learn about what makes Miles tick and how he took care of Mallory but also about the type of person Mallory is, hard working simple girl next door type. 

But at the end of the day, what will Mallory do when she finally finds out who Miles really is, what extremes he went to, to look after her and make sure she had a good life. Will she be someone that can live with having an OTT Alpha as her man or will she walk away from the best thing that happened to her.

All I can say is if you are in doubt don't be you will not be disappointed, pre order this book NOW!

Review by: Amy E 

Finally a full length novel by Alexa Riley.  I love all their stories with my only complaint being they're too short.  What I loved most about this book was it wasn't predictable.  How the characters would react, where the story was going, and what challenges would be faced were all up in the air.  It flowed smoothly, kept me excited, and I genuinely liked all the characters.

Miles reminded me of Christian Grey with his way of thinking and how fiercely he loved Mallory, with it boardering on obsession.  While he's feelings where overwhelming it wasn't off putting.  I loved how he loved her.

Mallory while innocent and a bit naive still knew her own mind and didn't allow people to walk all over her.  She was brilliant, career driven, and a genuinely a nice person.  

This was an excellently written book and I'm desperate for more of the supporting characters Paige and "Captain".

4 Stars 







PREFACE

Miles

I’ve watched her since the beginning.
It’s funny, but I don’t really remember much before her. It’s as if I could split my life into two halves. Before her and after. I remember my life with my parents, and I remember getting into college, but it’s all gray before her. Until the day I saw her, there was no color. But once my eyes landed on her for the first time, it was like when Dorothy landed in Oz and she opened the door. The world went Technicolor, and she was my very own Glinda the Good Witch.
I was twenty-two years old the first time I saw her. She was seventeen and competing in a state-level high school math competition.
Yale University asked me to represent them as a student judge, and I nearly declined. The state of Connecticut is small but houses one of the greatest Ivy League colleges in the country. One that makes becoming a standout almost impossible. I was among the top one percent in my class as a senior at Yale, with a major in statistics.
The only reason I’d accepted the invitation was to play a part. Many expected me to follow in the footsteps of my father, and I wanted them to believe that, but my end goal was a little different than anyone knew. I was on the path of revenge, but playing a part would help me on that path. Rubbing shoulders with the same men my father did, even if it left a bitter taste in my mouth.
Agreeing to judge the competition was life-changing. The bitter taste in my mouth altered that day. A sweetness took over. I wanted it. Needed it.
I’ll never forget the way she looked, so confident and sure of herself. I watched her from a distance, like you would a lioness in the wild. I didn’t approach her and I didn’t disturb her, but I never once took my eyes off her.
I found out later she was being sponsored by her high school so that she could attend the competition. She had no family and was being raised in a group foster home, so her school funded the trip. She was smart, and they wanted to see her succeed, which she did.
I saw so much in her as she competed. She knew all the answers and was absolutely sure each time. She trusted her instincts, and they didn’t let her down. There was so much potential in her just waiting to be unleashed. I wanted to sit down and have her tell me everything, anything, as long as she talked to me.
She swept the competition and won first place in her division. I was strangely proud of her.
When she walked out of the hotel ballroom after the competition was over, I let her go. It was the hardest thing I’d ever had to do. But I knew that if I went after her too soon, or too fast, she would run. Not only was she too young for me, but something about her told me she was the kind of woman who came along once in ten thousand lifetimes.
This wasn’t to be rushed. It was to be savored.
I may hate my father, but I’ve learned from his mistakes. I’m going to use those mistakes for my own advantage. He’s smart but sloppy at the same time and it’s been showing. But I know if you want something, you work hard for it, plan out all the details to make it yours.
From the beginning, 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.
No one knows it’s been me behind the curtain, pulling the strings. I’ve constructed everything in our lives so that at the perfect moment, I could have her.
The time has come.
