Probably the best stalker romance I have ever read! ~ I like Books Best
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.
~ Maria’s 5 ⭐️ Review ~
The Danger You Know by author Lily White is FANTASTIC!! It is a dark, twisted stalker tale. It is addictive, compelling and delicious. Author Lily White writes an antihero that is a dangerous, dark, disturbing psychopath that I loved anyway and that had me questioning my sanity.
Ari and Adeline are complex, flawed characters. Their connection is palpable. The push/ pull is intense. Ari’s possessive and protective nature lead to frustration and some dark moments. Adeline struggles with her condition, her rebellious personality and her need to feel safe. I love that he loves her because of who she really is and not the facade she portrays.
The Danger You Know is not only a stalker story, it is a story of obsession. I mean, like all consuming obsession. And though that should not be an attractive quality, it is when it’s Ari. This is what I mean about author Lily White’s writing. She has the ability to create characters that should scare you to death, however they steal your heart and blow your mind, instead!
This story also explores the condition of narcolepsy and how it affects the person who has it. It was very interesting and worked beautifully with the storyline and the characters.
The Danger You Know is an intense twisted story of obsession with unexpected twists that had my jaw dropping. It is intense, dramatic, and suspenseful. I devoured it, needing to know how it ends. I loved all the characters, except the ones meant to be hated. I loved the cameos of another favorite, too. It is a fabulous read that I highly recommend you add to your TBR!!
Clearing my throat, I whisper, “I’m a married woman.”
“You keep saying that, but I’m not sure I care.” A pause. “I’m not sure you care either.”
He runs a fingertip along the curve of my hip, and I jump, my throat slamming closed as I attempt to hide the reaction.
“Are you planning on having any fun tonight, Adeline? Or has your life become so boring, you’ve forgotten what it is?”
I don’t answer him, but it doesn’t stop Ari from having his fun.
Another soft slide of a fingertip, this time down the center of my nape, the secret touch hidden by the fall of my hair.
“I hope you know I plan to wrap my fist in this hair the first time I sink inside you.”
My entire body shivers, my lungs struggling to breathe as he pulls his hand away.
Voice a low croon, he asks, “Will you dance with me?”
Swallowing several times before I can answer, I lie to him. “I don’t dance.”
But it makes me remember when I used to lose myself to the beat of music, the hours I would spend happily working myself into a full body sweat, my hair wild, my heart pounding. I’d felt so free then. So unencumbered by the weight of responsibility that came with being the wife of Grant Cabot.
“I think you do,” he whispers.
“My husband doesn’t dance,” I say, my voice firmer because it makes me angry to admit it.
A soft chuckle. “Then it’s a good thing I’m not your husband.”
