Blazed Tag Work Love

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 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.

o I ending up really liking Everything For Her by Alexa Riley. I’m familiar with Alexa Riley’s stories and writing style and was intrigued to read the first full length novel to see how things would go. I ended up really liking some aspects of the story more than others.

I found the premise to be interesting, my curiosity and attention was held strongest during the beginning to middle when the questions were still being raised but as time went on and after the big reveal my attention wained. I wished the drama was more multilayered and had a bit more depth then it did. Though I did like the strong emotions showcased with Oz and Mallory.

Now the romance is where I found the story really shined. Even though it was intense insta-love which can be problematic, I knew that was Alexa Riley’s MO so I was expecting it and it didn’t really bother me, I just wished there was more challenge and development between them since this is a full novel and there was time for it. I really enjoyed the high intensity blazing passionate romance they shared. With its hits and misses I did find it fun and blazing hot read. Am I interested it reading the next story in the series? Yea I am, cause I found the secondary characters intriguing and want to know more about them and how their story will play out.
