Van has been wrongly accused of a crime and is fresh out of prison set on revenge and finding out who framed him. Basil has been sheltered, homeschooled and raised by a hippy mother. She is on her own in the big city and is set to try to make it on her own and get into art school.
"I don't remember what it felt like to be loved." "I promise you'll never forget." I assure him.
There is a lot of humor that I have come to love in HJ's books along with a plot twist that you never see coming. When you're broken sometimes you find the right person to make you whole again.
He's supposed to be scary, wicked, venomous...The bad one. He has scars to prove it. Some search for a love like it, but he found me. Left scars on my heart that will forever taint my soul. He's my Big Bad Wolf and now The Hunted my heart will forever search.
"You're my story from beginning to end."
Best line I have read in a book in a long time, "She gets a little dick in her and wine, then gets lippy.” That had me laughing so hard!
Bay and Van's story is a true rollercoaster. Their relationship isn't perfect but they are living their way. Bay is a shy anxious girl who does not do well in social settings since she was homeschooled by her hippie mother. Van is the Big Bad Wolf with a heart of gold. Their journey is dark at times but ends with the right shining through.
Suspenseful, Sexy, and one heck of a ride!
The Hunted is a fast paced romantic suspense novel that had me from the very first words and didn't let go till the end. I loved Bay's character and how strong she was.
Bay is on her own, living in the bad part of town, working towards finding herself and saving up money to live her dream of going to art school. She's working nights as a waitress at a strip club, making good money and hoping that it helps get her to where she wants. She never expected Van to enter her life, and for her to be so intrigued by him.
When we first met Bay she was shy and socially awkward, but as the book goes on we get to really see her and watch her grow. She has a fling with Gannon, who I wasn't very fond of, but her mind is always on her sexy neighbor Van. Van is just out of prison for a crime he didn't commit, and is working on trying to figure out who set him up. He's a mysterious character and states over and over again that he's not a good guy, but Bay can't stay away from him.
There is a series of murders happening around town, and everything points to it being Van being responsible, but as we get to know him through Bay's eyes, you can see he couldn't be responsible for these bad things. Sure he's done some bad things, but you can see deep down he is a good guy, he just doesn't know how to see himself differently. I was going back and forth throughout this entire book trying to figure out who was behind the murders, and I had a part of it right, but was NOT expecting the twist we got when we finally found out who was responsible.
Not only is this book a edge of your seat murder mystery, but also a beautifully written love story. Bay accepts Van for who he is, and loves him unconditionally, and Van is the same way with her. The way he protects her and takes care of her, had me swooning. Over and over again he would say he was the big bad wolf, but he really and truly wasn't. Sure he can be a bad guy, and he has some major anger issues, but after hearing his back story, I really did understand what made Van, Van. He's not your typical book boyfriend, but that doesn't mean I didn't end up falling for him right along with Bay.
This book is a dark and suspenseful read that had me guessing over and over again. There is heartbreak, love, and times where I was yelling "NO!! WHY DID THAT JUST HAPPEN?!". This was one beautifully written story that had me finishing this book in one sitting. I will admit, I wasn't sure what I was getting into while picking this book up, but I am sure glad I did, because it was AMAZING!
I was given this Advanced Reader's Copy in return for an honest review and that is exactly what I have done.
With each one of her books I think she can't top the last but she has definetly topped and over achieved all expectations I had of this book..
So Bay (Basil) is absolutely lovable how could you not she is a sheltered awkward nerdy girl spreading her wings and learning to fly who falls for the BIG BAD WOLF...sigh
Van van is literally swx on a stick...he's the not really bad guy but circumstances forces him to be bad...but his love his love is like WHOAAA
This book has it all love (unconventional but awesome sauce), suspense (who done it style), mystery, sex lots of hot steamy out of control sex.
But seriously if your a reader of HJ Bellus you are in for one hell of an emotional ride. You may think your prepared but seriously you aren't...
