Published by Carina Press Genres: Contemporary
Mallory Sullivan grew up in foster care and has had to work hard for everything in her life. Having just moved to New York City and living with her best friend Paige, her life is exciting. To top it off, she is about to start a new job at one of the top companies in the world, The Osbourne Corp, where she will be one of three interns in the accounting department. What Mallory doesn’t know is that she is about to meet the man who will not only change her life sexually but that she’s been the star of his fantasies for years.
After seeing Mallory for the first time years ago, Miles Osbourne fell in love with her but he couldn’t do anything about it, one because she was too young at the time and two, he wanted everything to be in place so that he could provide her with anything her heart desired. Now years later it’s time for all of his plans to come to fruition and to finally claim Mallory as his own. Finally being able to be so close to her, is causing him to make mistakes before he is ready to show his hand. He is desperate and hopes that his missteps don’t lose him the woman that he has come to love so deeply.
Everything For Her is the first book I have had the pleasure of reading from Alexa Riley and to be honest the storyline had me hesitant, but I’m really glad I did. Once I started, I was sucked into a world of wants and desires that ran deep within characters that were very likable and a man that would do truly anything to get the woman he’s loved from afar for so very long.
To be honest while reading Everything For Her, Miles started off as the creepy/borderline stalker type. I didn’t understand the obsession he had in wanting Mallory so much when I’m sure he could have had any woman he wanted, after all he’s good looking, rich and very powerful. But as I read further into Everything For Her, I found Miles to be sweet and not creepy at all. The things Miles did for Mallory were endearing and ranged from the smallest, simplest gestures to being outrageously and over the top at times. One thing I was never in doubt of was that Miles was completely, one hundred percent, in love with Mallory.
I liked Mallory from the very beginning; apart from being smart and a hard worker, she was just a simple girl trying to make it on her own. She wasn’t flashy or looking for someone to take care of her, in fact when she meets Miles for the first time I was surprised how much she tried to resist him.
Everything For Her is sweet, sexy and everything I love in a romance. I thoroughly enjoyed that it’s written in dual povs but would have liked to have seen more of Miles pov as the story was unfolding. Ms Riley delivered a book that is truly unforgettable and I’m already anticipating the next book in the For Her series. It looks like Mallory’s roommate and best friend, Paige, is the next book in the series and I can’t wait for her story. Confession time, right after I read Everything For Her I started it again immediately, that’s just how much I loved it! I Joyfully Recommend Everything For Her and hope everyone enjoys it as much as I did.
