Hate me and tell me I’m wrong.
Refuse to see how my darkness is what she needs.

While I don’t particularly care about your feelings in the matter, and while I pursue her despite the wedding bells that rang for another, only I can see how she is drowning beneath mediocrity.

Probably the best stalker romance I have ever read!

This was an odd one to be certain but I really liked it. It is definitely dark and twisted in it’s own way but in some ways it almost is not, but that has to be taken with a huge grain of salt. Because the Hero or anti-Hero as the case may be, is definitely an assassin by trade and I know there is some sort of thought process out there or maybe it is just something I heard in the movies, that if people kill for money and not fo the thrill of kil

'THE DANGER YOU KNOW:' Is a full length dark romance novel by author Lily White. Spoken in 'Dual Perspectives.'

In this you'll meet our hot stalker man Ari
Our heroine is Adeline aka little bird
And our secondary character Lincoln (who I'm hoping gets his own book 🙏) He's Ari's right hand man, he's also the on-call babysitter when Ari was out doing what Ari does.

First of afraid, be very afraid! Ari is going to maul your heart and stalk your senses.
Secondly, leave all your morals and inhibitions at the door.
There's no dispute in the fact that Lily can write dark like no one else. The Original Queen of Mindfuckery is trigger free lass, prancing in the field of skulls with crows perched on them, feasting on the eyes. She bravely goes stomping in the tropes where authors rarely dare to venture, and owns the place!! Her penchant for creating 💯proof,

Recommends it for: Dark lovers
Genre: Dark Romance
Type: Standalone
POV: First Person - Dual

For years Ari watched over the free-spirited Adeline Kane from afar. What started as conscience quickly escalated to a full-blown obsession. And he would stop at nothing until he claimed her as his.

What I loved the most about this book is how all the characters stayed true to their inner self. This is a crucial aspect for me when it comes to Dark Romance. I was pleased with the storyline and enjoyed watching the main characters'
This was my first book by author Lily White, and I was definitely happy I gave it a try! I will be reading more of her books as soon as I can!!!

This story had a dark theme to it, and it made the suspense all the more intriguing to read! Ari, who was the hero, ended up meeting the heroine during a traumatic time. Once he met her there was no turning back for him. He ended up stalking her from that moment on! He had secrets though, and his constant attention to her would eventually catch up to him
5 ★

At 16 years old, Adeline Kane’s life irrevocably changed when circumstances out of her control occurred. While she lost those she loved, Adeline gained the obsessive eye of someone who shouldn’t be watching her. As years passed, Adeline always felt a presence but attributed these feelings to her own inner demons until she comes face to face with her shadow.

“I need to be the fire that roars to life inside her, need to be the shadow that she reaches for every time she closes her eyes.”

Lily White has done it again!! With each story she delivers, I fall more and more in love with her writing style and the deliciously sexy antiheroes she creates. The Danger You Know was one of the most delicious stories I've read by her as there was something amazing about Ari. He was on another level for me! He was not only a dangerous stalker, but his connection to Adeline could not be denied. He saw the real her and would do everything in his power to keep, protect and own her. He is one of m ...more

There are no words other than pure perfection!!!
Stalker Romances are not the normal read for me, I've read a couple, but I do enjoy dark reads and I love books written by Lily White so there was no way I was passing this one up. The way Lily White writes just pulls me into her world and doesn't let me go until the very last word and sometimes I'm stuck in that world for a while after, this book did just that for me.

Ari is everything I should hate but instead I totally adore him.

Lily White has once again created a masterpiece of a story, involving two very dysfunctional individuals and on very messed up situation. I want to say it was like watching a car crash but that results in devastation and destruction, whereas Ari and Adeline collided together in a way that resulted in something amazing. It was a long and at times painful process, their journey fraught with misery and heartache, but through it all wa

A Top Dark Romance read that is twisted AF and you won’t be able to let it go!!! This is a walk on the darkest side. Ari is the shadow that you think you see. He’s the feeling that you are being watched. He’s the man that will possess every part of your dark romance loving heart. You will be consumed by it.


Adeline always felt a shadow, but she had no idea it was real. Her life has been in upheaval since her mother died and her father lost his will to live

A 5 Star Seductively Written Stalker Romance!

"But sometimes even the ugliest of stories can be beautiful, and ours has been fucked from the beginning."

I'm sure you're wondering why a stalker would be seductive? If you're like me, there's no reason, the more twisted, the better. And of course Lily White always delivers something unexpected, yet exceedingly well thought-out, and definitely provocative!

Ari and Adeline's story is a whirlwind of obsession, lust, and insane intensity! I was comple
Holy heck!!! This is one dark stalker-licious tale.

I’ve always loved a hero that is consumed by the heroine, obsessed to the point of doing ANYTHING for her. I found him in Ari. It’s been ages since I’ve loved such a twisted hero but despite the dark vein that runs through him, Ari won me over almost immediately.

Adeline had issues as a young woman and I found it a bit difficult to connect with her in the beginning. However, as Ari watches her from the shadows and takes notes of the changes in

Ari and Adeline‘s story is interesting. He certainly was a strong presence in her life, but she was completely unaware for a long period of time. They had some twists and turns and certainly quite a few odd shaped bumps on their road to everlasting love. As is the case with this author, it’s not your run-of-the-mill typical romance but it certainly has characters that you root for.

My Thoughts:
- Ari is classified as a stalker in the book blurb and I’m not sure that’s an accurate assessmen

I liked this book.
A solid 4 stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

She doesn’t need a hero to swoop in and save her, she needs a villain who drags out the hero she has within herself.

I’ll be honest: I love stalkers. Well, reading about them, at least. Throw a little dark humor in, maybe a dash of self-awareness, and I’m set. So, when I heard Lily was releasing a dark stalker romance, I was HYPE. I haven’t read her entire catalogue like a lot of my friends, but I’ve read enough to know that she’s quite talented. I also know that she

“But I guess it’s better the devil you know and all that. Or the danger, in my case. Because that’s what I am. A danger. A disaster that has been slowly creeping up on her in the darkness of night, in the cloak of shadow.”

I’ve read quite a few stalker romance stories, but Lily White doesn’t ever do anything boilerplate! With her typically eloquent, articulate words and the ability to create twists and curveballs I never forsee, I once again was consumed by yet another of her innovative story

Another phenomenal book by Lily White! She is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors and this new release will go on my Top Books of 2020 List!

It’s never the dangers that lurk in the shadows you have to worry about, it’s the ones you know. The people who can turn your world upside down without any effort at all. The terrifying monsters that sneak up when you least expect it to steal your heart and drive you insane.

I think we all yearn to be the center of the universe when it comes to our partners. But this love, obsession and just plan ole stalking took that want to have one person focus on only you to another level. This book was riveting. I enjoyed each page, the violence, the passion and the suspense. Ari was this sexy dark broody guy, with killer looks, rage and income. Adeline was naive, young, ill and the focus of his obsession.

The Danger You Know was a gripping, dark, and gritty stalker romance. Dark romance is my favorite genre so I don’t know why I waited so long to pick up another dark romance, but this book delivered all of the things I enjoy about this genre. The story was different enough from the other books to keep me captivated and Ari was depraved enough to keep this book entertaining! The only complain that I have with this book is that it was slow and even boring at times in the first

Alright, I normally don’t do this - giving badly edited books that annoy the hell outta me more than 3 stars. But... I will for this book bc I give it extra credit for creativity. (and also for the lickable guy on the cover. Hell if my stalker - the non Hannibal Lecter sort - looked like that, I might not mind either)

The plot is unique, the baddie truly bad but not so evil that he can’t be loved. He doesn’t suddenly become “good” or even redeemed tho there is a twist at the end. Straight up he’s

I enjoyed this a lot more than I thought I would. I freaking loved Ari and his sarcastic and dry comments. I also loved how crazy obsessed he was of the heroine, and yet was still, funnily, a jerk to her. His and Lincoln's relationship was the best too and I'm so glad this didn't turn into some weird threesome relationship or have any scenes like that, and now I really can't wait for Lincoln's book. The heroine did aggravate me sometimes, but then I really liked her
