Everything for Her
by Alexa Riley
Published: December 27, 2016
Genre: Contemporary Romance
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 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 while 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.

I HAVE A restless night, the nerves of anticipation keeping me up. I have dreams where I’m on the run and Oz is hunting me. The last dream I remember is being in a grassy field, hiding among flowers. Oz finds me and holds me down while he kisses my body. I wake up covered in sweat and more turned on than I’ve ever been in my life.
Looking at the clock, I see it’s before six in the morning. I give up on trying to go back to sleep after that dream, so I reach over and grab my phone. There’s a text from Oz lighting up the screen, and I smile like a lunatic.
Oz: I can’t wait to see you today. It’s been too long.
Me: Did you forget you saw me last night?
Oz: You’re up too early. Go back to sleep, baby. And I would never forget seeing you.
My cheeks burn. Thank God he can’t see my violent blush.
Me: Maybe I can’t wait to see you today, too.
Oz: You have no idea what hearing you say that does to me.
Biting my bottom lip, I try to think of a sexy response, but he’s quicker.
Oz: What color tie should I wear today?
I like the notion of picking out something he’s going to wear, that I could be a part of his day in some way.
Me: Blue…like your eyes.
Oz: I prefer yours. Light gray with just a hint of gold.
Me: Someone’s been paying close attention.
Oz: My sweet Mallory, if only you knew.
I love how he calls me his. I should be putting up more of a fight, but it’s so nice to belong to someone.
Me: Then gray…like my eyes.
Oz: Anything you ask, it’s yours.
