the danger you know by lily white

I’m not the hero in our story. Never have been. And you need to remember that. I’m just a man with an obsession that’s lasted too fucking long, the truth of it carved into every bone, seared into every muscle, and spread out over my entire penthouse…


You’ll judge me. 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.

How many times must I remind her?

It can’t matter that I am the person who ruined her life. The man who killed her father. The constant shadow that watches her sleep. The lover who prefers dirty alleyways to freshly laundered sheets.

She’s mine. Always has been. I’m the worst thing for her, yet I’m the only salvation she knows.

He had his chance to make her happy. He failed. He didn’t see how she was dying inside because he couldn’t know her. Not like I know her.

I am her stalker. Her protector. And the only man that can bring her back to life.

Easy romance is never pretty, and the beautiful ones, the ones worthy of your time, those are cleverly disguised nightmares.


Lily White has set the bar as a must-buy author for me after finishing The Danger You Know. I am completely in awe of this story. Though it’s lengthy, the set up for this dark and sensual slow burn was devoured so quickly and had me begging for more.

My love for Ari is deep and never ending. Ari is a contract killer that has no remorse for his job until the one contract that forever seals his fate and ties his life to Adeline indefinitely. He is always watching, waiting, protecting. He never interferes unless there is danger. He never meets her until he has no choice. He never lets her know him until he decides he has to finally claim her as his own.

Adeline has always lived her life in an unapologetic spiral. Always doing what she wants and not giving a shit if you judge her for it. Finally settling down with a man she believes will tame her wild soul, she doesn’t realize how much of herself she’s giving up until she meets Ari. The one who wants that unrestrained wild behavior and raw energy. But what she doesn’t know is how long Ari has been in her life. How long he has watched her. How long he has wanted her.

The Danger You Know is packed with action, intrigue, mystery, raw sexual tension, and an ending that will bring you to your knees. I was sad that this ended too soon because what Ari and Adeline have is exactly the kind of connection I look for in all of my books. This was brilliant and everything I wanted!
