Some secrets can't stay hidden forever
One look was all it took.

A single chance encounter with her and I knew she was the one. She was everything I wanted but I knew there was no way she'd want a man like me once she found out about my past, and I was right.

Now that she knows about my demons, I've lost the woman I loved. I'm not giving up; she will be mine because I'm

2 stars mainly due to some decent narration, but even that couldn’t save this story

I hate to say that I felt utterly mislead about this book. The title is giving the impression the story is gonna be some dark, creepy, suspenseful and action packed-read. Alas, it was nothing of the kind. It was cheesy, sappy, predictable, slow and uneventful. The complete opposite of what I was expecting.

I couldn’t connect with the characters, neither feel their instant love for each other. Yeah, I get there’s

Don't be fooled by the title, it's not one of those creepy stalker types of story; I felt like it was more of a yearning for or longing kind of story, if that makes any sense? Any ways, I love insta-love stories and Stalker was that. This story follows Nick, who was just released from prison for pleading guilty for a bar fight that caused some serious damage. He turns to a good friend of his to help get back

1.5 Stars because I liked the H and how motivated he was in getting the h.

The lack of stars is because the blurb and the genre was VERY misleading. This should be categorized as a quirky romance since there was absolutely nothing dark about it. He wasn’t even really a stalker. I’ve read books about stalkers, and the H in this book was just determined or persistent. The h was very forgettable for me. I didn’t see any real reason for the H to be so head over heals except for her being pretty. I

This was such a great read. I loved everything about it. The cover is super hot and the blurb drew me in and had me wanting to read Nick and Alexa’s story.
i’ve read all books by Derek Masters and he has become a favorite. He has a way with words and storytelling. He also makes his stories relatable which is something I really enjoy when reading a book. This book is no different and won’t disappoint.
I really enjoyed the fact that this wasn’t your typical crazy stalker story and loved the author’

I listened to the audiobook version of this book.

There were a lot of very well written super hot scenes in this shorter story. There was also an underlying story of love and devotion underneath that was particularly touching. I do wish we had gotten a little bit more interaction between characters to justify the level of love and just more depth of the characters in general because I really liked the author's writing.

The narrator gave us a great performance and his voice is just so super

Relationships are complicated

Nick has a secret Curtis doesn't want his fiancee go find out.
Alexa has had crappy relationships. When you mix those two...well is a recipe for disaster. If you want a relationship just be honest as soon as possible. You may be surprise.
Beautiful story. But the truth will set you free. Honesty goes a long way. Great ending.

This one enjoyable quick listen about Nick and Alexa, There story is a roller coaster of a ride thats filled with emotions, secrets plus they go through ups and downs. There chemistry was off the charts. I couldn't stop listen till the end. Rodney just brings this whole story to life and pulls you long for the ride with Nick and Alexa.

somethings just not "write"

So this is my third book I have read from this author and something is off. It seems that of all of the romance(dark, erotic, and wholesome) books I have read, and I have read PLENTY, no author describes her female protagonist in what feels like a sleazy, juvenile manner. "It's hard to find a woman that hasn't slept with the entire town and isn't a slut." as stated by the male protagonist . And we are expected to want him to get the girl!. Then it dawned on me, read

Where to start..... This is my first book by this author and I felt that Nick and Alexa’s story held a lot of promise, but I was kinda let down. The tag of this book says dark romance and it wasn’t even close to mildly dark. He had a weird fixation with her but it was pretty much all in his internal musings except for a few things that could be considered weird. Things were great for the first half (be warned the that story ended at 58% of the kindle book) of the book and then the heroine just ...more

Nice storyline and plot. A story with instalove and attraction.
The characters are well described. Nick tries to turn his life into something good. Not the old bad guy but he wants a fresh start. Alexa is a woman that has not had luck with her choice of men. I am not into manwhores that just have to dip their manhood and get release. So lucky for me Nick changes through the story. There are cliches that I would rather had not been there.
I like it is written in dual POV which gives the reader

Stalker is a sexy, slightly out of the box romance. It's not dark really, but it is intense at times.

Nick is finally out of prison and looking for a fresh start. He had been in for 5 years for attempted murder, thanks to a bar fight, one he didn't start or even want to be in, where the victim ended up almost dying. Now that he's out, his best friend is letting him stay with him and his girlfriend. It's through Curtis' girlfriend, Kim, that Nick will end up meeting the love of his life, Alexa.

A well written book with all the emotions that keeps you from being able to put this book down.
Nick was numb in more ways than one. Five years he had been there never again. With nothing more than basically the clothes on his back he was free. Curtis was the only family Nick had, they meet while in foster care they thought of each other as brothers. Curtis had offered him a room with him and his fiance Kim to help him get back on his feet, although Curtis asked Nick not to mention to Kim that

A well written story with a male lead who just breaks your heart with his past and the lengths he will go to secure a better future for himself. Overall, I liked the book, but for being marketed as a dark romance, there really wasn’t much darkness to it.

Nick is a man trying to fix the wrongs he's made in the past. Getting out of prison he's finally getting the chance to redeem his mistakes and to make a better, different life for himself. He may not have many loved ones to turn to like the other inmates did but with the help of his best friend he's starting off on the right track. What he wasn't prepared for was to instantly be smitten with a beautiful woman named Alexa.
Alexa hasn't had the greatest luck in relationships, and has trust issues.

Nick is released from prison after spending the last five years there for attempted murder. His best friend Curtis owns a construction company and has offered him a job and a place to stay while he gets back on his feet. The only catch is Curtis doesn't want his live-in girlfriend to know that Nick just got out of prison, so he needs Nick to go along with the story he made up as to where Nick came from. On his first night back Curtis's girlfriend, Kim has her best friend, Alexa over and all it ...more

Stalker by Derek Masters is one spectacular read. I loved every minute of it from the beautifully designed cover all the way to the very end. I love how this author can take a popular troupe and spin it in such a way that is totally unique and original only to him. This book is no different and will not disappoint.

I really liked this book, though it didn't end up totally being what I expected. Nick and Alexa have a pretty intense connection as soon as they meet, but of course, drama happens that interferes. The story is well written in that it flows smoothly and it, as well as the characters are well developed, though I feel like Alexa could have been more so. This didn't end up being as dark as the blurb led me to believe, which still worked out because it's still a great story. I'm not gonna lie, there ...more

I was given this audible book for a fair and honest review, thank you Rodney Falcon. I’m sure this wasn’t necessarily your fault but in parts I was a little confused on who was speaking. Otherwise I enjoyed your narration.
The story in a nutshell, Nick is released from prison, is invited to stay with his friend Curtis and girlfriend Kim, Kim has no idea Nick was in prison. Curtis and Nick want to keep it that way. Nick falls for Alexa, Kim’s best friend. All is well till Nick moves into his own

Have you ever had something bad happen and then you let a friend convince you not to tell anyone? If you're like Nick you just kind of knew in the back of your mind keeping this secret from Curtis' girlfriend would probably come back to bite him. But he and Curtis grew up in the foster care system and even though they had been bounced around, they stayed in touch throughout their lives. They considered each other brothers and if Curtis thought keeping the secret was the right thing to do, then ...more

Stalker is the story of Nick and Alexa. Nick is fresh out of prison and looking to turn his life around. He meets Alexa while staying with the only friend that stood behind him. This story is heartfelt and heartbreaking. Alexa has a bad track record with relationships but feels an instant chemistry with Nick. Their romance is put to the test when secrets Nick come from Alexa come to light. Can Alexa forgive Nick for his lies or half-truths? Can Nick convince Alexa to give him another chance? ...more

This was my first Derek Masters book and first time listening to the narrator Rodney Falcon. The author did a good job introducing the main character - Nick and of course we all know the secrets that came with hiding would eventually come out and cause problems. Masters did a commendable job setting the stage for the eventual conflict and I felt like he presented Nick’s journey to overcome the consequences of secrets in a thoughtful and believable manner. The narration of Rodney Falcon really ...more
