The Danger You Know by Lily White Blog Tour

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 failed.
He didn't see how she was dying inside because he couldn't know her.
Not like I know her.

I am her stalker.
Her protector.
And the only man that can bring her back to life.

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.”

I love a good stalker and Lily White delivered with Ari. He is everything I wanted and needed him to be.

I need to be the fire that roars to life inside her, need to be the shadow that she reaches for every time she closes her eyes.

Ari is a contract killer. He kills for a living – that's his job. Once the job is over, he never thinks about it again. He never feels guilt, it is what it is expected when he kills Adeline's father. He didn't know she was in the house; she wasn't supposed to be there. When he sees her come running to her father's office, something inside Ari shifts. He watches Adeline for years. He looks out for her when she fails to look out for herself. He stays hidden, always in the shadows until he can't any longer and Adeline's truth is revealed.

It's never the dangers that lurk in the shadows that you have to worry about, it's the ones you know. The people that can turn your world upside down without any effort at all. The terrifying monsters that sneak up when you least expect it to steal your heart and drive you insane.

I'm usually not one for highlighting lines in a book, but this one had me highlighting constantly. I loved everything about this stalker romance. And let's talk about Lincoln, Ari's best friend and Adeline's babysitter when Ari can't be there. He needs his own book in the worst way!!

If you love a good stalker, this is the book for you. It will check every book you need it to. Sexy, seductive, and just so damn good.

I hardly ever read F/M books anymore, but I have and always will read books by Lily White no matter what genre. Anything this author writes gives me the feels. Scary, thrilling, amazing, crazy, psychotic, and warped feelings, but feelings none the less. I was sucked in at the beginning and spit out at the end. Ari and Adeline have a connection that is dark and intense, but you can feel it and live it in this book. I don't want to give anything away because you have to read the book to understand the love I have for it. The author has a way of making me see the other side of things; does it make me twisted just like the characters? Probably, but damn, this book was good!

The Danger You Know was another seriously entertaining read written by my favorite author of the year: Lily White! She has been on absolute FIRE and this was just perfect.

When I think of Lily White books, I usually think of dark reads. This is on the dark spectrum, but definitely a bit lighter – more of a gray, than black.

Ari is not a hero in any sense of the word, but he isn't really the villain either. This leaves us in a strange place, not able to truly categorize his character. I can say that he may be the dark horse, but damn did I fall in love with him. How many people can say they've ever received someone’s full attention, at all times? Can you say you've kept someone's attention, from afar, for a decade? I can't. I also can't say stalking should be considered sexy... until it's Ari doing it.

Adeline also wormed her way into my psyche. I can't stop thinking about her and her mental complexities. She is free spirited, even with the crap her life threw her. The poor girl has had some seriously heinous things befall her. In an attempt to rise above her place, she does the one thing she's "supposed" to... she settles.

This story was exciting, slightly creepy, but always entertaining. I loved all the characters (shout out to Lincoln) and the scenes, I loved the chemistry between Ari and Adeline, and I LOVED the resolution to their "little" problem. Thank you, Lily White, for another perfect escape from my mundane life!

Lily White is a romance writer who likes to dabble on the taboo side of eroticism. She is most known for her Masters series, Target This, Wishing Well, and Asylum. In addition to dark romance Lily writes contemporary romance, taboo romance, and psychological thrillers. Lily enjoys stretching her writing muscles by continuing to challenge herself with each book she publishes.
