Everything for Her

Everything for Her

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 he...

    This one was just good for me...not great. Maybe my expectations were too high or something. I found that it dragged a lot and I was bored.

    I think the authors could have cut down on the time it took Mall finding out the big secret and spent more time with Paige and Mile's groveling. I hate a heroine that gives in literally hours after

    There just wasn't nearly enough grovel in my opinion.

    There just wasn't nearly enough grovel in my opinion. The beginning was super slow, the middle part picked up, but then we went back to the super slow that dragged on and on. I also didn't find Mile's particularly alpha like a typical AR hero. In fact, I found him and Mallory a little on the bland side. AND, because I feel in a particularly picky mood today, I will say I also didn't like that

    Ya, Ya, picky much Eve? What can I say? I

    I was just underwhelmed. That said, I think Paige's and Ryan's book sounds WAY more interesting and Ryan sounds like he has the potential of being WAY more alpha. So I AM looking forward to that one...

    ARC received in exchange for an honest review.

    A full lenght novel from Alexa Riley is just what every reader needs! After so many short novellas from this author and after so many complains about them being so short, we now get out satisfaction with Everything For Her. If you've read at least one of this authors books then you know what to expect. Having so many pages to gush about the writing, the romance and the angst is a perfect Christmas gift.

    I loved the story from the start to finish.

    A full lenght novel from Alexa Riley is just what every reader needs!

If you've read at least one of this authors books then you know what to expect. Having so many pages to gush about the writing, the romance and the angst is a perfect Christmas gift.

    I loved the story from the start to finish. There really wasn't anything that I didn't like, honestly. And that happens maybe one in a five hundrets books for me. There is a reason I'm such a huge fan of AR and they didn't let me down with this story.

    The hero is so amazing. But I'm going to be honest, had I met him in real live, I'd run for the hills, since he is so OTT and obsessed with his woman. But that's exactly the reason he makes a perfect book boyfriend. There is truly nothing that he wouldn't do for her. I admit, his original plan of how to get Mallory backfired at him and left him for a few days in agony but besides that, what an amazing hero!

    Also, as far as Mallory's character goes, she's just so cute and charming in her own way. She's super smart and really worked herself to the bones to get to where she's now. Since she's an orphan, her life wasn't all roses and sunshine. That made her a fighter. And once she loves, she loves deep. Her bestfriend Paige is an awesome character and together they make a great team. When the truth came out, all seemed to crumble for Mallory but she found a way to move on.

    The only thing that I didn't like about this story is the question what happens to Miles's father. I think we'll get the full answer to that in Paige's story. Can't wait to see what happenes between her and Captain, as she calls him.

    All in all, I think AR should stick to full novels. Now that we've got them, there's no turning back to the short stories. :)

    Sorry I'm so late with this review, folks.

    I've been working a lot lately and, well...

    Between work, the holidays, and

    household chores, I didn't have a whole lot of free time.

    Or motivation, quite frankly.

    So anysnuggle, this book.

    All of us AR fans have been waiting not so patiently for this thing - AKA AR's first full length novel - for quite some time now.

    But before we go any further, let's be real here...

    Sorry I'm so late with this review, folks.

    I've been working a lot lately and, well...

    Between work, the holidays, and

    household chores, I didn't have a whole lot of free time.

    Or motivation, quite frankly.

    So anysnuggle, this book.

    All of us AR fans have been waiting not so patiently for this thing - AKA AR's first full length novel - for quite some time now.

    But before we go any further, let's be real here...

    In fact, HERE is where he lives:

    Okay, so not really.

    He lives in a high rise penthouse, because ROMANCE novel - but still...

    Bat.

    Shit.

    Crazy.

    Seriously though, he is a stalker of the highest order.

    If I had a friend who was dating him, I would tell her to run to the court house ASAP for a restraining order -

    we hung out with Sir Stalk-a-Lot and I got me a few rounds of high priced liquid spirit, mind you, but still.

    Run homie!

    Do NOT pass go.

    Do NOT collect 200 dollars.

    *haha* *burp*

    But anyguzzle, as I said above...

    This be a ROMANCE novel, peeps.

    And what might be scary, stalker, psychopath in REAL life?

    Is hot as

    in Romance Landia.

    Don't believe me?

    Case.

    In.

    Point.

    Perhaps one of the most popular love stores of all time:

    AKA

    Yeah...

    But anyShakespeareanClassic.

    Miles was the total crazy stalker we AR ladies love in our romance novels, and Mallory was - of course - the golden clam vagina that all the boys want to get their man package inside of.

    This book was everything we all love and expect from AR, only BETTER.

    Granted, it was a bit slower moving at times, but homie don't care.

    I dug it.

    Because, in the end, it was exactly what I've always wanted from an AR book:

    .

    More crazy.

    More sex.

    More BOOK.

    In fact, fuck it!

    Let's just go on ahead and bump this shit up to 5 smut stars.

    I mean, being that it's going right on the "spank bank" shelf that lives in my

    head...

    ...I think it deserves it, no?

    Regardless.

    Well done AR ladies.

    I can't wait for your next foray into full length featuredom.

    Find me at:

    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

    So excited to read their first full length book.

    The wait for this is killing me.

    It was a little nuts to tell you the truth, but in a nice way.

    He said so many sweetly intense things to the heroine. I can't quote them all. To do so, would mean I would have to include most of the dialogue.

    They are sweet together and this was a full length story finally.

    So YAY!

    However, I have to sheepishly admit the truth, I felt it had too much unnecessary information and scenes.

    For me, the whole drama at the beginning with her discovering the truth was necessary, but after they get together, I felt like many of the other scenes were superfluous.

    At one point, I was just tired of reading about the office drama and other small events like her getting dressed. (Honestly, it was starting to sound like a Harlequin at that point and not an Alexa Riley story).

    These are my only issues with this book, and the only reason why it lost a star.

    It had an nice epilogue.

    Worth a read and maybe a reread sometime. You know when you have a failed alpha book. This may be a good comfort read.

    Now, I am so very glad I preordered her next full length book. These two are going to be EPIC! Chemistry is off the charts. Paige and Ryan/Captain I am seriously waiting with baited breath for your story!!

    Completely safe without any issues here NONE!

    Totally random thought here, I often wonder why fictional couples, who want large families, never adopt!? Seriously, these two had a lot to give a sweet unwanted child. Just my random thought.["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

    Reading for the second time because I need me some AR this week :)

    ➳Alexa Riley has somehow done it... she has made me change my mind about reading her books, going from the dislike of her smutty books to her now full novel (and another on the way) full of potential and brilliance!

    ➳So lets talk about the story... WOAHHH! What a HECK

    Reading for the second time because I need me some AR this week :)

    ➳Alexa Riley has somehow done it... she has made me change my mind about reading her books, going from the dislike of her smutty books to her now full novel (and another on the way) full of potential and brilliance!

    ➳So lets talk about the story... WOAHHH! What a HECK of a story this is! Miles Osbourne is the number one definition of Mr. Hot Stalker + Possessive Alpha Male mixed together. The way he controls absolutely anything, and

    that had crossed through his path and the path of his one true love, is wonderful to read. The transition between the pov of Miles and Mallory is smooth and very pleasing to read in the beginning of the story. The epilogue is rather confusing and a little scary to say the least because of what Miles is thinking... he wants Mallory that's for sure, but he claims her off the bat when he first sees her at a college event hosted by various organizations from Yale. He spots her when she was attending Yale University and she was only seventeen, and himself being twenty-two. He sees her, and he absolutely desires her; desires her love, her passion, her voice, her presence, her

    . When the time finally comes, and he is able to talk to her after keeping her at arms length, and after five years of yearning her and her presence, he goes and talks to her. He is instantly beyond possessive of her, and to me it gave me a sense of the creeps but at the same time, it turned me on hahaha! He is demanding in a positive way that makes you swoon for Miles and his love.

    ➳Mallory and Miles (also known as Oz) begin their love story and they are both instantly hooked. Miles was already hooked that first time he saw her five years ago, and his love for her never diminished, never got distracted by anything or anyone else because he savored his love for Mallory;

    ➳Their love story evolves through the hard secrets that Miles possesses and keeps from Mallory, breaking them apart but slowly bringing them back together. But no matter how when they fall in love, that love never diminishes- instead, it grows and grows, making them fall in love with each other more and more everyday. That includes the intimacy scenes. They don't f***, they make love. Love in a way that makes you want to crave it, love in a way that makes you cry by just reading it (I will admit, I used a couple of tissues), but most of all- love that will make you want more and more of their story, because that is what Alexa Riley has done. She makes you crave more of her writing. She makes breakfast sex, morning sex, office sex so hot and steamy, I kept heating up every time Miles and Mallory were together!

    ➳The ending was hard to read because I was sure as heck sad that it was coming to its finale of the story, but Alexa knows us too well. She did not just add ONE epilogue... she added THREE! She did not only describe what happens after six months, or after three years- she describes the true love (and lust) Miles and Mallory have for each other after TWENTY YEARS! And let me just say, their love is just absolutely beautiful and breathtaking. Alexa Riley has sure as heck done it, and I can say that this has to be the best book she has written by far...

    is the first full length novel in Alexa Riley’s new series entitled For Her. I am a big fan of this author and love her over-the-top, sweet stories with possessive male leads and a big dollop of inst-love. For me, personally, I enjoy books that are over the top when it comes to sunshine, love, happiness, rainbows and unicorn farts. I also enjoy Ms. Riley’s exaggerated alpha-males who are all about possessing the women they fall for. Every now and again it is nice to read a book with little to no angst and simply take in all the cheesy goodness that is love and a happy forever. That is what this book did for me. It put a smile on my face and had me happily sighing wanting my own hot reclusive billionaire.

    Miles Henry Osbourne (a.k.a. Oz) has worked hard to become the sought-after billionaire everyone knows him to be. He goes after what he wants and makes no apologies for it. He’s wanted Mallory Sullivan ever since he first laid eyes on her when she was only seventeen. He knows that can’t immediately possess her so Miles sets out to ensure that Mallory will be his eventually. He intricately insinuates himself into Mallory’s life without her knowledge buying his time so that one day he can finally get his prize.

    Told in dual POVs, I loved reading how Miles finally was able to stake his claim. Was this over-the-top and borderline stalkerish? Sure. However, I also understand this is fiction and the crazy ride that Miles and Mallory embark on is simply fun to read. If you have read anything by Alexa Riley in the past, you will know the types of exaggerated heroes she conjures up. Her heroes are larger than life, possessive bastards and I love it.

    All in all,

    was a lot of fun to read. I found myself often stopping while I was reading this book to simply take in how much I was loving every word. I love books that make me feel this way. I feel like this author stands out and has developed a unique writing style that is enthralling. Full of wonderfully written secondary characters, a hero in hot pursuit, a heroine who does not see him coming and moments that will simply melt you – this book had it all. I can’t wait for more in this series.

    Alexa Riley has been one of my go-to authors whenever I want a quick, sexy, super steamy read. Everything for Her is their first full length novel, and this book had everything long time fans could want in an Alexa Riley book.

    Possessive hero? Check!

    Sweet, virginal heroine? Check!

    Insta love? Check!

    Super steamy sexy scenes? Double check!

    Alexa Riley has been one of my go-to authors whenever I want a quick, sexy, super steamy read. Everything for Her is their first full length novel, and this book had everything long time fans could want in an Alexa Riley book.

    Possessive hero? Check!

    Sweet, virginal heroine? Check!

    Insta love? Check!

    Super steamy sexy scenes? Double check!

    That said, I wish I enjoyed the story a lot more. I found myself a bit put off by the hero's stalkerish and possessive nature. There are times when I find myself enjoying a possessive hero but there is a thin line there. Unfortunately, Oz was just too much. I felt like he crossed the line by taking away a lot of her choices.

    I mean, sure. He provided her with everything she needs (without her knowing it was him) but a cage is still cage regardless of whether it's made of gold or wrought iron.

    There are certain things that the hero did which made me uncomfortable. I get the fantasy of having someone there to give you everything you could dream of. It's nice fantasy. I wish I just couldn't turn off this other scenario in my head where instead of a billionaire, the hero is just a regular guy who still lives in his mom's basement. Imagine that guy doing everything this hero did. It's creepy. And having a hot billionaire do it instead of your run-of-the-mill basement dwelling stalker doesn't make it less so.

    The whole thing would have been much better for me if the heroine had more choices or acted more independently instead of just accepting everything the hero did. She did feel deceived, and rightfully so. But her acquiescence was too easy. And I wasn't 100% convinced with the reasoning behind the hero's actions.

    It didn't end up all that bad. Alexa Riley has such an easy writing style that reading this book was painless. Plus the smuttastic steam was phenomenally hot, as usual. And the sweetness towards the end is vintage AR. I have no doubt AR fans will love this book even if I didn't.

    Despite my misgivings, I would recommend this book to fans of insta-love, over-the-top possessive, obsessive heroes. If you love this type of fantasy in your book then Everything for Her is definitely written for you. :)
