Dearest Stalker: A Complete Collection Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
What happens when a woman falls in love with her stalker?
I'm not the type of woman who actually inspires passion in any guy, much less one who makes it a habit to watch me because he's obsessed.
I'm a curvy, plain Jane. I like my chips, chocolate, and junk food, and it definitely shows.
I'm an educated geek who would rather have my nose in a computer instead of a fashion magazine.
But none of those things seem to matter to Stalker. He sees something in me that I don't see in myself, and I don't know why.
I'm terrified, yet I'm inexplicably intrigued.
I'm cautious by nature, but something makes me want to know who he is, and why he gives a sh*t about somebody like me.
I know falling for a man I've never seen in the light of day is dangerous.
Does he stalk me because he wants to own me, control me, and make me into the woman he thinks that I am?
Does he want to hurt me, or is he just a lost soul like me?
And why did it feel so good to touch him under the cover of darkness?
Is he my nightmare or my dearest stalker?
Getting to know him might be foolish, but for some reason, I just can't walk away....

No matter what name this book is under it was a great book...Keep them coming. I can hardly wait for Dearest Protector to be released. Well worth it...
This is the complete Dear Stalker series – just over 300 pages – which includes four short novellas. Dearest Stalker: Part 1 is available free from Amazon as of this writing, but the remainder of the series is only available in this collection.
Although this is a Lane Parker book (J.S. Scott’s alter ego), fans of J.S. Scott will find that this story has the same familiar tone and rhythm. Granted, the Stalker aspect here is on the racier side, but as that aspect of the story resolves and the couple comes to terms with their situation, familiar themes emerge.
Katherine Riley, twenty-two, finds herself all alone amidst the crowd of well-to-do at her father’s funeral reception. She hadn’t seen him in years. He never took his role as father and husband seriously before he left her and her mother to fend for themselves. Katie had turned out alright thanks to her own hard work and that of her mother, who hadn’t lived to see Katie give the valedictorian speech at her high school graduation nearly four years ago. Katie’s father had gone on to marry a wealthy woman, whose mansion Katie stood in as she felt so alone in the world now. The only person left in her life was her friend Ariel, who had just moved back from New York after an injury brought her dream of becoming a ballerina to a premature end.
It was late winter in Southern Florida when Katie made her way home to Fort Meyers from her school in Massachusetts. Although Katie’s coursework is complete, the ceremony in which she receives her bachelor’s degree is yet a few months away. Her major is in computer science, but she plans on pursuing software engineering for her master’s degree. Her father’s death, however, leaves her with a dilemma. Her father had finally stepped up since she left for college, and though it didn’t make up for the absence of his support as she grew up, it had given her something to hold on to since her mother had passed. They had exchanged texts every so often on the phone that he left for her. He had entered his contact info under the name Stalker, strangely enough. And importantly, he had sent her money to help cover the expenses not covered by her scholarships. She still had to get a job to cover all her expenses, but his gifts had helped considerably. His death would mean the end of his financial assistance, and Katie would soon be out of a place to live. Her first priority must now be to secure employment, something entry-level, and hope to complete her master’s degree while holding down a full-time job.
When Katie finds herself grabbed in the dark and at the mercy of a stranger, she wants to fight back. Little does she expect her stranger to know her name and whisper sweet words that leave her desperate for more. And she must be crazy when she realizes that she wants to see him again. She wants to know who it is that she feels so connected to. She wants to see his face. She knows it is someone that knows her. But who?
Ben Blackwood, twenty-seven, is technically Katie’s stepbrother. Although they had met previously, he and Katie are still essentially strangers. It takes Katie by surprise when he insists that in spite of her father’s death, he still considers her family. He tries to take her under his wing, and given her impending homelessness, she finally accepts his help. He gets her set up with a place to stay.
Ben’s dreamy looks and billionaire status make him a most sought after bachelor, though he is mostly focused on his work at Blackwood Technologies. He and his older brother Ian took over the tech giant after their father’s death nearly six years ago, and in that time they have turned it into a powerhouse with their edgy ideas. Katie’s interest lies in robotics, and Ben helps get her interview lined up for a coveted position on their robotics team.
Ian Blackwood, the older Blackwood brother, is away from home when Katie temporarily moves into his vacant guest house. He heads the robotics surgery project at Blackwood. He, too, is devoted to his work. He is passionate about bringing new technology to the market. He often travels – he owns many homes – but when he does show up to the office, his employees are careful not to upset the notoriously terrifying older Blackwood brother.
Doug Ryker, Katie’s old high school lab partner and co-worker at the local grocery story, had always had a crush on Katie according to her friend Ariel. While Katie had always been a geek, Doug had been in the cool crowd. A popular football player. He had left to play college football, but is now back and living in the area after an injury ruined his professional prospects. Katie hadn’t realized that the former bag boy had been the son of the owner of a national chain of grocery stores.
As she tries to figure out the identity of her mystery stalker, Katie finally comes to terms with the insecurities that have built up as a result of her total attention to her studies. And as she comes to terms with being alone in the world, Ben has her rethinking the definition of family. She is challenged with truths and preconceived notions. When she finally identifies her stalker, she must also face betrayal. Fiercely independent, Katie struggles to accept help from family, friends, and strangers alike.
Katie’s dark story is a steamy stalker romance. The stalker element is thrilling in the beginning. As the story unravels and the identity is revealed, the story puts a very human face on the stalker. It shows how something fairly innocent snowballed out of control. *Spoiler* Although the story mostly skips over it, Katie really shares the blame here, as she also allowed things to snowball. Her gut reaction to the stalker’s identity thus feels a little off. Nevertheless, the couple eventually earns a happy ending.
A spin-off, Dearest Protector, is announced but as of this writing has not been written. It is Ariel’s story.
When Katie finds herself all alone in the world, her stalker comes to the rescue. She knows she needs something real in her life and tries to move on, but things get complicated when her stalker’s identity is revealed. The story is well-written and plot-driven. The story is written in first person. The POV alternates between Katie and her stalker. I rate this book four stars.

Who couldn't be effected by the Blackwood's total acceptance of Katie into their family. Her struggle for independence and paying her own way. The isolation she feels with the lost of her mother.
Ms Scott has a way of delivering a story that gets you hooked and invested. I have to say I was impressed.
Of course, having a stalker is a serious issue but don't be misled by the title. This is a straight out love story that had me totally engrossed. Loved it, so enjoy peeps 😉
