Review
I received an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book’s release day promotions.

I’ve read other books from Clarissa Wild before, but I was really excited for this book because it’s a Beauty and the Beast type of romance, and if you know me, you’d know that it’s my favorite fairy tale and that I love a good Beauty And The Beast book because I always believe there’s just so many things you can take away from the fairy tale and from its retellings.

Viktor is a beast. When I say beast, it means he has physical disfigurements that make him ugly. And there were really heavy reasons for those scars that he has. Lexi, for all her beauty, is a prostitute. This story is a fairy tale, but it’s not. We don’t have a beautiful heroine who’s perfect and flawless. Lexi is flawed, broken, difficult. But it is because of both their imperfections that the story works so well.

I like how Ms. Wild throws in plot twists like there’s no tomorrow. I mean, I already know her techniques by now, but she still never fails to surprise me with those twists she adds into her stories. Viktor has dark elements, but it is all in all a good and solid contemporary romance novel that will give you a few hours of relief from reality, so you can lose yourself in a tale as old as time.

Excerpt

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.”

Review

I received an ARC of this book from Give Me Books in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book’s release day promotions.

I think I’ve already said this numerous times that every now and then, I get this craving to read dark romance. And there’s only very few authors who excel in this genre. Clarissa Wild happens to be one of them. I loved Stalker and Twenty-One. I was excited for this book because the blurb was very intriguing. There’s a lot of master/slave romance going on these days that it’s hard to find a story that unique and memorable.

Ultimate Sin is a touching and sad love story deep within a dark romance package. Ava, Marcus and Daniel are all people who find love in the midst of a dark world they lived in. I don’t know how the ending made me feel. And the story had a generally heartbreaking vibe all throughout. I could say it was more sad than dark. The sex scenes were super hot. The menage could carry you away at some point. All in all, this book had the perfect balance of dark, sweet, and hot. I may feel like it had a sad ending, but I think it was just the right way to end the story. If you love dark romance, you should check this out. You won’t be sorry.

Excerpt

I take a fistful of her hair and pull her closer, wanting to lick every inch of her mouth. Her taste is intoxicating and makes me want to do sinful things to her body. My cock is already painfully hard, nudging against my pants, practically begging to be taken out and played with.

I’ve wanted this since I first laid eyes on her. It’s so fucking bad, but I can’t get enough of the way she looks at me with those innocent eyes. She’s a vixen, and she knows it. She spins us all around her little finger, and I love it.

Marcus stands behind her, grabbing her waist, only to push her closer to me. He kisses her shoulder, neck, and back as I kiss her. Between us, she smolders with heat and desire that’s impossible to ignore.

I let my hands roam freely over her body, squeezing her tits and tugging her nipples until she squirms and moans into my mouth. I smile against her lips and continue to kiss her, knowing that my touch drives her crazy. I know how to please a woman. I’ve been taught for so long, I could never forget.

But fuck me, is this something else.

We’re kissing her both, sandwiching her between us like some sex-crazed cavemen.

“Show her how much you want her,” Marcus growls, setting his teeth into her skin.

She gasps as he leaves a gentle bite mark, and I take her nipple into my mouth and suck hard, then nibble a little, setting her skin on fire.

She moans out loud, and I return to her face to capture the sound.

“Yes, make those sounds, Ava. Show us how much you want us too,” Marcus growls.

He slides his hand between her legs as I kiss her, and I can tell from the way she’s panting into my mouth that he’s flicking her clit so hard she could come right there and then. God, I’d do it just for that look of pure pleasure on her face. It’s magnificent. Something to behold. Something special I can’t place, but I feel it deep down in my heart. I need this woman. Right now.

However, I don’t get the chance to make a move because Marcus just grabbed a bottle of lube and positioned himself behind her, squirting it all over her and himself. He parts her legs, grabbed his cock, and shoved it up her ass.

She mewls out loud, her head tipping back as he grips her hair. I do the only thing I can think of. I kiss her neck, toying with her nipples as he pounds her ass again and again. Her eyes connect with mine, desperation and need seeping through until I feel nothing but the desire to satisfy her every craving. So I keep kissing her over and over until she can barely breathe.

I watch him bring his fingers back to her pussy, flicking her clit as he fucks her in the ass.

“You’re so wet, Ava. Is it because you’re kissing him?” he whispers. “Or is it because I’m fucking your tight ass?”

“Yes,” she moans, and her admission only makes me harder. “Both.”

“I bet you’d like to come all over my hand, don’t you?”

His dirty talking even has me shivering as I kiss her lips.

“Oh, God, yes,” she says, shuddering.

“Daniel wants you too, Ava … He wants to fuck your pretty little mouth while I claim your ass …”

“Yes … both of you.”

“Both of us at the same time, fucking your holes until you can no longer stand,” he groans.

She gasps. “Yes.”

Fuck me.

I thought my cock couldn’t get any harder, but apparently, it could.

It’s about to burst out of my pants, so I throw all my restraint out the window and tear down my pants, allowing my cock to spring free from its constraints.

And good God … the way she looks down at it, blinking rapidly, licking the top of her lips … it makes me want to bend her over and fuck her next.

“See how hard he is for you? It’s all for you, Ava.”

“But Master …” She swallows, gazing at my length and then back up at my eyes. “Are you sure this is okay?”

“Ava … you both belong to me.” His eyes glint with thirst as he licks her skin like an animal. “Now … Bend over.”

Review
I received an ARC of this book from Give Me Books in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book’s release promotions.

I love reading dark books. However, everytime I start reading a dark romance, I am always scared. I am afraid of what I might read. I’m afraid that what I read may be too much for me, may be something that won’t redeem the hero or heroine in my eyes. I feel that every single time. But I still go back to the dark stories. All the freaking time. There’s just something about these stories that I find very interesting.

Clarissa Wild isn’t a new name for me. I already know her books, have read some of them. I know just how dark her characters can be. This book had a very interesting blurb that didn’t really give away any part of the story. The heroine was kidnapped, forced to endure such horrors for 21 days. But why? And by whom? And how does their reckoning happen? The blurb doesn’t really give me anything, so I just had to read it. Even reading it, I still couldn’t really understand the whys and the hows and the whos in the story until it was the right time for me to know.

Ms. Wild did an amazing job withholding so much but still keeping things compelling. I couldn’t really know just how far the main characters would go, how low they would stoop, but I knew there was a point in there somewhere and that the payoff was around the corner, so I kept on reading. When all the questions were finally answered and all plot twists were unravelled, all I could think was how glad I was that the book ended the way it did. Let me tell you, though, it might not be how you expect it to end, but it ended the way it should. Oh, Phoenix Sullivan and Vanessa also had a couple of appearances in the book, so I still got to know what they were now up to after their book ended.

Twenty-One is a very dark love story, one that you may actually give up reading, especially if you are looking for something sweet. It is a story full of pain and secrets and courage. The heroine was the bravest dark heroine I’ve ever come across. There is nothing sweet or tender or gentle throughout the whole book. It’s a love story that may seem hopeless at times, but it’s a story that I truly enjoyed reading.

Excerpt

“You didn’t give me what I want either, so now I’m going to take from you what I want even more.” His tongue dips out to wet his lips, and he bites the bottom one for just a second. For some reason, my eyes zoom in on it, and they forget for just a second what’s going on here.

“You’ll like it … don’t worry,” he muses, stepping even closer so he can smell me.

I turn my head to the side while he sniffs me, trying to lean away, but it seems it only makes him come closer. He places a soft kiss on my neck, his tongue drawing a line upward toward my ear. Right before he nibbles my ear, he hovers in front of it, and for a second, I think I can hear him smile.

He hisses, “I love your smell. Your taste. They make me so fucking hard.”

Suddenly, his hand is on my breast, kneading, tugging, and twisting. Everything and anywhere, all at the same time. Sensory overload makes me gasp, and when my mouth opens, he covers it with his. He takes my breath quite literally, kissing me until my moan is silenced, kissing me with everything he has. His taste is familiar, intoxicating, and for a second, I forget that I’m even hanging here. His tongue expertly licks the roof of my mouth, his lips brushing mine with equal fervor.

“This is what I’ll take from you,” he murmurs into my mouth.

His free hand slides down my body and past my inner thighs, pushing my legs apart as he starts rubbing me. I feel humiliated. Used. Shameful, for actually feeling my pussy thump from having him touch me.

“Hmm … you like it when I touch you.” It’s not even a question.

“No …” I say, shaking my head.

He grins. “Yes, you do.” He pushes a finger on top of my clit. “Right here.”

I moan when he rubs it with his index finger and then brings his thumb into the play to roll my clit. Wetness is building inside me as my core clenches, desperate to fight off the arousal, but my body is a fool for his touch.

My mind has been deprived for too long, and when he offers me this release, I’m too weak to fight it. It crosses my mind that perhaps, if I give this to him, he’ll be more gentle with me. Maybe, if I give him anything he wants, he’ll let me go.

It might be a futile thought, but it’s here, and it’s not going anywhere.

“Don’t think I’m doing this for your pleasure, Sky.” He groans. “Oh, no. I’m doing this because I want to watch you writhe from my finger.”

Still twisting and pulling my nipples with one hand, he’s driving me crazy with lust, as the other expertly builds the desire between my legs.

“I’m going to watch you come, and you’re going to enjoy it, and then hate yourself for liking it. And tomorrow, we’ll do the same thing. And then again … and again …”

“Stop …” I moan.

Who am I kidding? He’s not going to, and I’m not even sure I want him to stop anymore.He’s got me under a spell, and I’m helpless to fight it.

Review

I received an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Did you think love was clean and pure and strong? Did you think love was only for those who lived for other people? Of course not. We all know love is more than that. But are you really prepared to read about a kind of love that sounds hopeless, selfish, dangerous, unforgivable? If you have a faint heart, if you want heroes and heroines, then this book isn’t for you.

Stalker is a dark unconventional book where both the hero and the heroine are the complete opposite of what a book’s hero and heroine should be. There is no redeeming factor in either of them. Throughout the book, you will love and hate them both with equal intensity. It is because of this that I found the book fascinating. Clarissa Wild has successfully written two characters that would normally turn off readers and have made them into characters that you mayblove or hate but you will keep reading on about.

When I started this book, I deliberately did not expect a happy ending. However, what I got was a good one and definitely what the characters deserved. I won’t tell you if it was happy or not, but I will say that it is what you hoped it will be. The mystery and suspense part was revealed and resolved well.

This book is definitely not for everybody, but if you are brave enough to read it, then you are on for a wild time. I suggest to get Killer, the prequel novella because it will introduce you to the characters and will give you a deeper understanding of how the story started.
