I believe you will always get the end reult shown using just the fillet feature. From my understanding of you desired results, you want the fillet only to be on the two adjacent faces and only to be the length of the line. With this solidworks would need to create a NEW flat face underneath the red face and I don't believe it can do that.
You can accomplish your desires in (2) ways -
a) use a CUT feature rather than a fillet feature.
b) cut back the top red face beyond where the tangent edge of the fillet would be. Use fillet command to add fillet. Then add extrusion to recreate what was cut off.
a) is best option in my opinion.
go to surface tools, click the delete face icon ,then delete and patch check circle.
oh ya pick the red face to delete
I made a mock part simulating the situation you have there, and I've found a face fillet with a hold line using that available edge works great. Plus, this makes it easily and fully associative. Change your part and it won't go over, and it won't stop short.
Here's a screengrab:
