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.
Everything for Her by Alexa Riley is a full-length novel about an elusive over-the-top billionaire who falls in love at first sight with Mallory Sullivan, a girl out of his reach when he first sees her while making an appearance at a state-level math competition. With a past, secrets and enemies that could threaten his happiness, along with his own burning desire for revenge, Miles Osbourne has obstacles standing in his way before he can claim Mallory as his own. Undeterred, he is willing to wait years and do whatever it takes to keep her safe until it’s the perfect time for them to meet.
I love reading Alexa Riley’s novels because I always know I will be swept off my feet by how sexy and swoon-worthy their heroes are and how scorching their couples are together physically and emotionally. Furthermore, I love how easily it is to get absorbed in the lives of their characters. Everything for Her is no exception. The moment I started it, I could not put it down until I was done.
Very character-driven, I love that we are given both Miles and Mallory’s point-of-views throughout the novel. Miles definitely comes on strong and is very obsessed with the woman he loves. Utterly devoted the moment he sees her, he’s planned and waited four years for his Mallory. Now that she’s finally in New York, in his company Osborne Corporation as an intern, and now within reach he can no longer wait patiently. He easily overwhelms Mallory at times, but she’s a strong heroine and holds her own. There are also many sweet and romantic moments within the novel, one of my favorites involves Miles trying to win back Mallory and no longer holding back. Wednesday was so sweet and amusing. You must read to see for yourself.
Besides Miles and Mallory, the supporting characters were just as intriguing, more specifically Paige. I adored Mallory’s roommate and best friend. Their friendship was well-developed and Paige’s backstory that was touched upon has me eager for the next book. I’m excited to read more about Paige and Miles’ head of security, Ryan Justice (aka Captain).
Overall, Everything for Her was a wonderful romance with characters that were seductive, humorous, and entertaining. I wholeheartedly recommend, and look forward to reading the next book, His Alone.
