Summary

I made a vow to protect her when we were just kids. First, from the monsters hiding under the bed and then the ones roaming the world freely. 

My obsession with Dove wasn’t normal. It toed the line on psychotic, but my love for her overshadowed that. 

I’d killed, destroyed, and hurt those who had done her wrong. I’d watched her for years wanting to claim her but refusing to. I was both her guardian angel and a demon lurking in the shadows. 

She was mine, even though she didn’t know it yet. 

I had planned to let her live her life while I watched from afar. Until one night, everything changes, and I’m forced to kidnap her. 

She doesn’t remember me.
She doesn’t know me.
She begs me to let her go.  

But I can’t. I won’t. 

There are things she doesn’t know.
Secrets I cannot tell her, but one thing is clear:
I’ll die before I ever let her slip through my fingers. 

This book contains dark themes that may be triggers to some listeners. Please consider this before listening.

Lots of heat

I love mafia romance and even a little on the dark side. I guess I’m gonna have to listen to this again at a point I don’t remember because there was very little plot to the story just obsessive sex.

Extremely possesive/ protective guy!

Started out extreme at the beginning which I liked. loved that he knew her when he was younger then found her when he got older and protected her. Even though his "secret protection" was obsessive. The guy's voice is what made me purchase the audiobook. It was just that good. Normally the guy's voice is bland. The girl's voice sounded off a little. Loved the book and hate the ending left you with a cliffhanger about Zane. I wished when Zane kidnapped her to protect her that she would've started figuring out how she knew him. I'll definitely be purchasing the next one.
If you don't like extremely possesive, stalker, obsessive men you probably won't like this book. I'm not into stalker but he did know her as a child.

Good story but where is part 2

Really loved the story, it's short but where is book 2? This was released in Feb 2021, the second book is out and it has been for awhile.
