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.
