My Review :
Thank you so much Give Me Books Promotions for sending me a copy of VIKTOR!! I’m very honored and grateful!! 🙂
5 Heartbreakingly Beautiful Stars!!
VIKTOR has to be one of the best takes on a fairy tale that i have ever read! It was sexy, shocking, and full of heart even if it wasn’t always seen to begin with. Gosh, this story was simply beautiful no matter the grittiness nor the gore it had a soul and made me feel. It takes a lot for a book to invade my heart but my process of thinking as well. The two main characters were who they were even after a long time of both of them hiding they embraced themselves without shame. The realness and fear that is within the pages of this book is all too consuming.
Ms.Wild creates a dark world filled with secrets, suspense, and at times utter heartbreak. I can’t believe i haven’t read Ms.Wild’s work sooner and honestly i could kick myself for that fact. After having read this story i can truthfully say i am very much a fan of her incredible work!!
Alexis Kidd was a character that was very blunt and not afraid to show how fearless she was. She did certain things in her life in order to provide for her and her sister Alisha. I liked that she cared about her sister’s well-being more than she did her own. She was quite the hilarious one at times and very caring in others. I was very interested in knowing more about her past life and the things she had to endure. Alexis wasn’t one to cower down from anyone no mater if they were frightening or not. I thought that she stepped up to the plate time and time again. In my opinion she was weird and pretty stinking cool.
Viktor Melikov was a character that had been through so many things in his life and he had the physical scars to prove it. He was rude and quite unappealing when first pops up in the story. I wasn’t quite sure what to make of him at first but he was so mysterious that i just had to know more about him and figure out what was going on with him. I’m glad that he had his own point of view and that i got to see into who he truly was without having to guess. He had scars but don’t we all, it was how he acted that truly defined him as a person even though at times he was quite the ‘monster’ as he put it Viktor had more within him to show which was exciting to read.
I highly recommend this story to anyone looking for a fresh new take on a fairy tale but with so many twists it becomes something entirely different and greater enough to stand on its own. It’s one of those books that suck you in until you are completely lost in the world that was created. One-click this one today! I really hope you love it as much as i did!! 🙂 5 Stars all around!!
Unedited Excerpt – Subject to change – Copyright 2016 Clarissa Wild
“Why am I still here?” she whispers as my hand disappears into her panties.
“Because you want me. Because you can’t leave.” I slide my fingers between her slit. Her folds are already wet for me, even before I’ve laid a hand on her. I grin against her skin, finally understanding why I want her so much. She needs it rough … and rough is all I am.
“You used this against me, Lexi …” I whisper in her ear. “Used your pussy as a tool to get information.”
“It wasn’t just that …”
“Show it to me then.”
The nightgown falls down to the floor, exposing her naked body right in front of the open window. But with no one around, neither of us cares. I’m going for the kill.
“Make me believe the lie that’s us,” I say, rubbing her clit.
“It’s not a lie …” she murmurs, her breaths coming out in short gasps.
“You only say that because my hand is around your throat,” I say, dipping my finger into her pussy. She gasps out loud as I go deep and swirl around inside her. “Because I own this pussy.”
“Fuck …” she moans.
I groan and then pull away, releasing her from my grip entirely. A confused Alexis turns around and props herself against the windowsill, her eyes pleading with me as I walk backward. My cock is hard, but my desire to know where we stand is much more urgent. Her legs draw together and she clutches her body as another draft enters through the window, her nipples peaking from the cold.
I can’t help biting my lip as I watch her become befuddled while I sit down on the chair on the opposite end of the room.
“Go on then …” I say, rubbing my bottom lip with my index finger. “Carry on with the little show you had going in my workroom.”
She stares at me for a few seconds before leaning back. Her eyes glance over her shoulder to the opened window. I wonder if she’s thinking what I’m thinking. If she’s hesitating … trying to decide whether to run or stay … if she wants me more than her freedom.
But then her eyes settle on me as I zip down my pants and pull out my cock.There’s a gleam of desire in her eyes … one that makes me grab a hold of the base and say, “You want this? You can have it … after you show me you really want it.”
