Viktor by Clarissa Wild ~ Review & Quote-tastic (@WildClarissa)

I've read quite a few of Clarissa Wild's books and I have really enjoyed her dark romances. Viktor was another fabulous, gripping read.

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.

Clarissa Wild knows how to deliver a dark romance, and she’s done it again with Viktor! Alexis and Viktor have both come from troubled and dark pasts; Alexis hides behind her looks to get what she needs, and Viktor uses his scars to hide from the world. Once these two crossed paths, I could see a connection, but didn’t realise how deep that connection went.

Alexis will do anything for her sister – Alisha – and although selling her body was not the ideal job, it was the easiest and quickest way to get the money to buy food and to keep a roof over their head. After an incident with Viktor, Alisha went to Viktor’s for revenge and Alexis offered herself in exchange for her sister.

Viktor was an angry and bitter man, who hid in his house where it was dark and behind his scars. He hadn’t interacted with anyone besides his butler– Winston – in years. He was unsure what to make of Alexis and when he got a second chance with her he made it hard for her to walk away.

Alexis and Viktor struggled in the beginning, I could feel their connection, but they were both hiding secrets from one another. I loved how Alexis could see past his bitterness and scars to the guy who wanted to do right. Viktor had not always been a good person and one act of selflessness changed his whole world. I could see that he still struggled, but I liked seeing him change into a better person the longer that Alexis was around. Together, they supported one another and the sexual chemistry between them was undeniable.

Viktor was such a great story and I enjoyed watching their stories and secrets unravel. I had a feeling of what was going to happen, and even though I was right on one aspect, I didn’t realise how deep that particular thread went. I am so glad that Clarissa Wild was still able to keep me guessing, right until the end. If you haven’t read a book my Wild yet, I suggest you pick this one up! It is the perfect standalone read that will have you keen to read more of her work!

I loved this moment! Viktor realising that Alexis was able to look past his scars!! 

“Don’t look at me, please.” I swallow. It’s at times like these when I miss my mask the most. I can’t hide behind it anymore.
“What are you trying to hide?” she murmurs, grabbing my hand. She pulls my arm down, and I let her.
“You shouldn’t have to look at this.”
“At what?” She smiles. “I don’t see anything except you.”
You. What does that even mean? Me. Who am I really?
Who have I been these last couple of years?
Just a monster with a scar … instead of the man she apparently sees in me.
I admire her ability to see beyond the surface.
No, I fucking worship it.
And just like that, I begin to realize I’m starting to fall for her. Hard.
