[R] Viktor, by: Clarissa Wild

by: Clarissa Wild


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.

*NOTE: This book is NOT Paranormal*
Inspired by a fairytale, VIKTOR is a standalone Romance by New York Times & USA Today Bestselling author Clarissa Wild.

Whenever I sign up for a book blitz, a cover reveal or a blog tour, I get this urges to read the book ASAP. So after my blitz post when up, I was reading the book and finished it in a few hours. I just couldn't stop reading. The blitz did its job with me, no regrets.

Viktor is a monster in his eyes. When Alexis steps in his house, he knows she is different. Alexis sells her body because money gives you food and home. Stepping in Viktor's house, dance for him without actually seeing him and hearing him growl, has her very curious. But curiosity killed the cat, and she got trapped inside his house and cannot escape now. Keeping her as a prisoner was the perfect solution Viktor made, until he notices who she really is and shit hits the fan. Viktor isn't the monster he thinks he is and Alexis isn't as fearless as she thinks she is. She's totally a beauty and he's totally a beast, so opposites attract, right?

I always, always am fascinated with the Beauty and the Beast concept, so reading recreations of it is just something I love. Viktor does not disappointed. It was just as the blurb says, it was as good as the excerpt I posted, and it has all the vibe of the playlist from the author. The story is very dark, but full of hot scenes between Viktor and Alexis. The concept of everything coming into a circle intrigued me because I never thought of it while reading it.

Clarissa Wild always have this ability of writing things I would like to read, but somehow I always ignore the call of reading them. I should stop ignoring and more reading, don't you think? Is the other standalones are as good as this one, I'm seriously being missing a lot. Read me later!
