Review: Stay Close by Alexa Riley

Publication Date: July 17, 2017 

Series: For You #1
Rating: 5 Stars 

Official Blurb: A former Russian mafia soldier is hired to protect a friend’s young daughter, but he knows he’ll do more than keep her safe–he’ll make her his. Forever.

If she were to simply whisper my name, I would be at her feet, begging to touch what I shouldn’t, taste what doesn’t belong to me, run my hands along the sweet innocence she taunts me with.

Penelope Justice is eighteen, old enough to graduate high school but—according to her parents—not old enough to live without 24/7 security. Practice has made her an expert at ditching her bodyguards. One look at Ivan and she never wants to run again.

I’ve been hired to protect her.

I can’t help but think that perhaps someone should have protected her from me.

Ivan steals the breath right out of her lungs, something no boy has ever done. Then again, he’s far from a boy. This man, this man who looks like he could kill someone with the flick of a wrist, is everything. He is her future.

I can’t let her go and I won’t give her up. I’ve done bad things in my life, and I don’t deserve her. But I can’t do the honorable thing.

I’ve never been noble, and I’m not starting now. 

Review: Every time I read an AR book I just keep wishing for more! I never want them to end. Alexa Riley always sucks me in with the sweet sugary goodness of insta-love and over the top alpha males. God I just can’t get enough.

Penelope is always ditching her bodyguards, so her parents decide to bring in Ivan. Once Penelope sees Ivan, she no longer wants to ditch him, instead she wants to run straight too him. Ivan is a former Russian mafia soldier brought in to protect Penelope oh yeah and he’s totally sexy in every way. He thinks he doesn’t deserve Penelope, but he just can’t let her go.

This story definitely gave me the OTT fix I needed. Penelope and Ivan are just too adorable together. And the sexiness in the book…whew it’s hot! I literally can’t wait to get my next AR fix.
