CEO Henry Osbourne has only ever desired one woman—the one who got away. New York Timesand #1 ebook bestselling author Alexa Riley returns with Don’t Go, a virgin-hero insta-love contemporary romance in the For You series
I’ve spent the past ten years convincing myself that what I felt for her was teenage infatuation. That love so consuming couldn’t be real. Then everything went to shit, and in an instant, she was gone.
Kory Summers knew returning to New York meant running into Henry. The way her heartbeat picked up at just the thought was nervousness—not anticipation. Oh, no. She never expected to find him on her doorstep looking as handsome as ever.
She’s mine. She always has been. I’ve waited this long for her…but time’s up. I’ll use all my power, all my connections, to convince her she’s the one.
Kory ran from a boy, but a man of power and persuasion now stands in his place.

I really loved this novella. I wanted to make that sound fancier but the truth is that I enjoyed this novella a lot. It was a perfect combination of sexy and romantic, while keeping the alpha male that Alexa Riley readers know and love.
Henry and Kory met in high school. Henry had been watching Kory and finally worked up the courage to ask her to prom. But things don’t always go as planned.
One thing I enjoyed about this story was Kory was so intelligent and respected herself. We see this incredibly smart high school girl, and then we see her in the future, and she is just as smart and quick-witted. She’s only grown into herself more, and I appreciated that. It was great development for a character in a novella.
Henry’s character is really sweet. He’s romantic, but it never comes across as cheesy. It always felt genuine. Of all the books I’ve read from this author (and I’ve read a lot), this couple and their love story is probably one of my all-time favorites.
If you’ve enjoyed this author already, or you’ve been reading their “For Her” series, you will definitely want to check out this novella.
