Animal. Monster. Beast. That’s what they call Viktor Melikov, the man who hides in the dark … But even monsters need to be loved. The moment he sees the girl hired to dance for him, everything ceases to exist. It’s a feeling he’s unfamiliar with … and craves more than anything.

Alexis Kidd sells her body. Not because she wants to, but because she needs to. A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do to support her family and survive.

Now she must dance for a man hiding behind a veil.
But when the urge to take a look grows too strong … Alexis gets more than she bargained for.
More than Viktor was willing to give.

Inspired by a fairytale, VIKTOR is a standalone Romance by New York Times & USA Today Bestselling author Clarissa Wild.

 

 Review

 I’ve been a fan of Clarrissa Wild for a while now. If she writes it, I’m reading it. She just has the perfect balance of dark and light that I can’t get enough of. Viktor is absolutely no exception. I devoured this book.

 

Viktor is a modern, darker spin on Beauty and the Beast. The very first chapter gives us a spin that had me hooked. We meet Alexis Kidd first. She sells her body in order to make ends meet. She isn’t ashamed by it. She just knows that she has to do whatever it takes to keep afloat. She is sent to a new client who happens to live in a mansion. She’s there to strip only. She cannot see the man, only his silhouette. She has been given explicit instructions not to look at him. What happens during this scene is extremely HOT. You can actually read the excerpt posted by the author on Goodreads.

 

Circumstances forces Alexis to become a prisoner in Viktor’s home. Little does she know that she’s exactly where Viktor wants her. Even though he wants her there, he is still hiding a very big part of who he is. This makes him mysterious and intriguing. However, he’s very much the “beast” that you would expect. He growls. He shouts. He stomps. He barrels his way through everything. What he didn’t expect was for Alexis to treat him normally. Like a human being, which he hasn’t gotten from anyone else in a very long time except for his one and only friend, Winston. She slowly creeps her way into his heart, allowing him to reveal more of himself and his vulnerability.

 

Alexis isn’t scared of the monster that Viktor claims to be. She’s such a head strong heroine. She’s had a rough life, doing what ever she needs to do to survive for herself and her family. She stands up for herself and she doesn’t take any crap. Especially anything from that beast of a man. Although, that beast turns out to be someone that she understands. Someone that she grows to like.

 

“I can’t give you want you want, ” I say. “It doesn’t matter what I say or what I do, you’ll still believe you’re too ugly to be loved. And until you change that, I can never give you what you need and you can’t either.”

 

In true Clarrissa fashion, we get a twist of the dark side. The reason Viktor hide a part of him is because of his ugly past. Things that he did that he regrets. Knowing they were wrong but doing them anyway because it was all he knew and how he survived. I don’t want to give anything away, but if you’ve read her work, you can expect nothing short of some messed up shit. I love her twists and the angst.

 

If you like fairytale spins that dabbles on the darker side, this book is for you. It is fast paced and gives you hope from some of the darker places. Pick this up now!

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.”
