A classic sort of love story… except somebody might wind up dead.
Nobody knows Delilah like Logan does. Nobody. He makes sure of it by learning everything he can through her social media and watching her through a hidden camera he has trained on her house. Some might call him a stalker. Logan prefers to be called “romantic.”
But after Logan sees Delilah killing her abusive stepfather, he realizes there’s still more about her to discover. His sweet, perfect Delilah isn’t so perfect after all.
Delilah knows she should feel guilty, but all she feels is free. She’s so over the men in her life controlling her. Except Logan saw what she did, and he won’t let her forget it.
Delilah is done being the victim. And she refuses to be a character in Logan’s twisted fantasy. If Logan won’t let her go… she’ll make him.

This book starts with a bang and continues at break-neck speed until the end. This is the stalker book I’ve been waiting for! Finally!!
This book was so creepy!!! I loved being able to experience the creepiness from two different perspectives. From Dee’s perspective, Logan was super alarming and obsessed. From Logan’s perspective, he was in love and committed. I just absolutely loved the way the obsessiveness and creepiness were portrayed and laid out. A++
I think what really made this book standout for me was the fact that I was able to be in head of both characters, as I mentioned before. Being in Logan’s head was so interesting. He really had something wrong with him that inhibeded him from seeing his actions as wrong and obsessive. He thought he was being protective, and kind, and giving Dee all the attention and love she needed and deserved. It would have been so easy to agree with him had I not also seen things from Dee’s perspective.
Dee was also an interesting character. She’s the “normal one” that has friends, a loving mom, and is working on saving for college. Seeing her development in this book was so fascinating. It made me wonder how much she was affected by Logan’s actions. Was she always the way she was or was she a product of her mom’s abusive bf, her dad’s death, and the stalking of Logan? The intrigue of not knowing is wonderful.
Overall, I am so happy with this book! It was dark, gritty, and had the best ending!! I need more books just like this one. Please and thank you.
