Editorial Reviews

Review

"When the artist fell in love with the Big Bad Wolf- a love story unlike any other & the best work to date from HJ Bellus. Five stars from Eye Candy Bookstore!"

"This is by far a different type of book from HJ Bellus. Its dark, dirty, sexy, with a hint of gruesome story. Its extremely heart pounding, that I was hooked. I read it, cover to cover in one sitting. Hooked. I want more of this dark and dirty Van and his girl Bay." -Stephannie Tolitsky- Swoon Worthy Books 
"The Hunted, like its sexy hero Van Hollis, is dangerous, provocative, and addicting. You do not want to miss this!" -Author Catherine Gebhard
"The Hunted is a MUST READ for 2016! Raw, sexy, suspenseful, and jam-packed with drama...you won't want to miss out on meeting your next book boyfriend!" -Author Maureen Mayer

This is not my first HJ Bellus series, her My Way series is one of the best, but this missed the mark totally. This is marketed as a dark read and it was not close to dark. Maybe if we got some of Vans pov then maybe it would have given us insight as to why this was dark. Also the blurb states that he walks through your front door covered in blood. Maybe I read something completely different but Van did not walk through her front door, he talked to her on her stoop with blood splatters on his shoes.
I guess maybe I was expecting darker. I loved Van, but got super irritated with Bay. For someone so sheltered she moved extremely quick into a cursing, love sick puppy. She got nervous around Gannon, but with Van she was watching things and playing along? Um, no. Sorry. The ending threw me off with no mention of the other players in the final conflict, I mean, did they die? Did they go to prison? Something, anything that would clear it up, along with who is killing the others, because it doesn't point blank say it. What about the other officer who talked to Bay at the station? So many questions that could have been answered that were necessary for the story that were completely ignored. Disappointed.

If you like suspense, drama, revenge, lots of hot sex and a little crazy thrown in at the same time then this book is for you. HJ does an amazing job with character development and making you root for Van and Basil in this book.

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."

So Miss Bellus does it again.. 
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...

After reading this book, I am left speechless. My emotions are all over the place from Van and Bay's story. I seriously had to put the book down several times because I became too overwhelmed and anxious! Thank you HJ Bellus for sharing your talent and f@$&ed sense of humor with readers!

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.

This was one intriguingly good read! I was hooked on the first chapter and found it hard to put down until 'The End'. The characters were deep and had a lot of amazing qualities about them. The story of Basil and Van was a rollercoaster ride of suspense. There were a lot of sex scenes. So if you enjoy that, this is definitely a book you will want to read. There were also some subjects that might be triggers for some readers. Typically I don't read this genre, but I did find myself engrossed in the plot until the very last page. Only a scattering of punctuation and grammatical errors...not enough to take away from the book itself. I give The Hunted 4 Stars. I can't wait to see what she has for us next!

I was given this Advanced Reader's Copy in return for an honest review and that is exactly what I have done.

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.
