Everything for Her
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.

This is the debut novel by Alexa Riley. From last two year (I think) they have written short, insta-love and HEA books. But now we got their full-length novel – Everything for her.
It’s the exact same thing what AR writes the best. Super alpha male (I am saying super because their heroes are over the top), insta love and hero would do anything in his power to get the girl he loves. This story was no different.
Everything for her is the story about Miles/ Oz and Mallory. Miles was obsessed with her when he saw Mallory for the first time and felt instantly attracted towards her. He let her go then but he sat her path out towards him.
From the beginning, 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.
No one knows it’s me behind the curtain, pulling the strings. I’ve constructed everything in our lives so that at the perfect moment, I could have her.
Mallory is an overachiever and was brought up by the foster care. She was given the full ride scholarship to Yale, one of the most prestigious university in the city and after that was offered an internship. All by Osbourne company. Yes, that’s Miles company. Didn’t I say he sat the path? Here it is.
Finally, after years he meets her and is unable to let her go again but he kept the inevitable secret which was bound to reveal at some point. Miles great aversion for his father and his past. Which was some major issue there.
As it’s like a tradition in Alexa Riley’s books that when girl and boy meets instant sparks flies and they are very much attracted towards each other in just a meeting. Oz – as miles introduced himself to Mallory on their first introduction. Now here we are talking about AR books and how her books are great in sacks literally and figuratively. Here too, Miles with dirty mouth and his need to make Mallory his by getting her pregnant. (See, over the top)
Miles was a bit of stalker-ish…. As he had planned her whole life out. Which was kind of swoony as well as a bit creepy. The extent to which he had gone to make sure Mallory becomes his at the end was so over the top. But he is the CEO of the damn best company and he is only protecting his woman from his enemies!!! He was soo alpha you can’t even imagine.
Trust me if someone else did all the things he did, I am sure he would be getting the restraining orders. But well, insta-love as I said. So as every love story there’s got to be some things hero or heroine would which would piss either one of them and that happened.
I’ve broken the single most precious thing in my life, and nothing can mend it.
I fall to my knees and press my side against the door. I deserve to hear her heart being ripped to pieces. I’ve caused this pain, and I should have to hear her every sob. Putting my head in my hand, I cry with her. Because all I ever wanted to do was love her and have her love me. Everything I’ve done has been so that she could have only the best. But in turn, I’ve stolen away all that was good and left her in ruins.
The ending was a bit abrupt to me. I was expecting it be full blown drama but well, it ended rather quickly. But well, I think we will get more of the drama in the next book.
Oh yess, it’s not just one full length novel but they have its sequel too (but not in continue manner. They can both be read as standalones.)
