The #1 international and Amazon Charts bestselling novel
The first letter arrived the day my husband was buried. It was postmarked from the state penitentiary, and contained a single sentence:
I’ll wait forever if I have to.
It was signed by Dante, a man I didn’t know.
Out of simple curiosity, I wrote back to ask him what exactly he was waiting for. His reply?
I told the mystery man he had the wrong girl. He said he didn’t. I said we’d never met, but he said I was wrong.
We went back and forth, exchanging letters every week that grew increasingly more intimate. Then one day, the letters stopped. When I found out why, it was already too late.
Dante was at my doorstep.
And nothing on earth could have prepared me for what happened next.
This novel contains content intended for a mature audience only. Due to explicit language, graphic sex, detailed depictions of death and grief, intense power play dynamics, and other possible triggers, it is not suitable for sensitive readers. (Full list of TWs on author's website.)


I am going to agree with everyone else’s reviews and say don’t read anything about this story. Go in blind.

The book description is a bit confusing as you start the story but of course, everything comes together at the end.   This is available under Kindle Unlimited.

People are posting trigger warning so I will note them here. There is graphic sex involving dominance, some question of domestic abuse and concern about the mental health of the main character, is she crazy or is her house haunted or is it something more sinister?  It is as much suspense and mystery as romance but it will definitely keep you guessing.

I am hit and miss with  this author.  Melt For You is one of my favorite books but there are others that she is written that I just couldn’t stand to even finish.   I am not much for the heavy-handed spankings or the dominance portions, but this story did keep my guessing, trying to figure out what was happening to Kayla and where Dante fit into this story.

I am hiding this review. Don’t spoil it!
