I swore that I’d come for her, to claim what belongs to me: Her life.
I’m not a good man. On the contrary, I love to be bad. It’s in my veins. Just like it’s in my veins to ruin her.
She’s an actress, pretending to be a saint, but we both know that isn’t true. One way or another, she’ll pay for what she did.

DNF @ 40%. I can't understand how this got so many 4-5 stars. Poor writing style and execution. The main characters and their personality are all over the place. I've read several dark romance stories... just wasn't sold on this one, unfortunately.

What a freaking ride! I didn’t see it coming, and I am so glad I was able to experience the twistedness of this book.

So, as the title suggests, there is a stalker who is also a killer (see previous book, but this is a standalone) but there are so many layers to the madness, it is like peeling an onion that is six feet across.

Each character in this book is a liar, a cheat and a whole bag of mess, but that is what makes you like them. I know it sounds strange, but you will see what I mean when yo

‘The spotlight is where I come to life; in the darkness is where my secrets lie.’

Well…wow….jumping straight from Killer into Stalker turned out to be one violent, eye-opening and gritty ride. I’m surprised anyone was left standing at the end. Where I felt slightly detached and only in like with the story and characters in Killer it felt like Stalker literally hit me across the head demanding I pay attention whilst Vanessa and Phoenix made me feel slightly sick, disturbed, morose and uncomfortabl

I really wanted to like this one but it just didn't work for me. I couldn't connect with the characters and the writing just wasn't up to par.
Another one of those that started off great but got ruined by a crappy ending.

Reading Stalker, for me, felt like a darker version of what Alice must have experienced when she went down the rabbit hole as the story leads us into the weird and disturbing world of Miles (Phoenix) and Vanessa.

I knew after reading Killer that these two characters had an abnormal outlook on life but it wasn't until I finished Stalker that I realised just how sick and twisted their lives had become. On the face of it, this story didn't progress outside of Vanessa's house but inside the

Hmmm...I have read a lot of Clarissa Wild's books but I think this one is the darkest of them all. The mood is dark and foggy; the characters and plot complex.
I was lucky enough to read Killer before diving into Stalker and I think that was great because I got to know things that are not included in Stalker. I highly recommend it you start Killer first because it gives you a perfect intro to the story. You have time. ;))))
This book picks up right from where Killer left us. Phoenix is in prison,

I can honestly say that I’m completely torn about this book and how to review it.

On the one hand, it kept my interest and had me racing through the pages to find out what happened. Anything that gives me one disclaimer after another, warning me that this is not the typical love story and is dark and disturbing, will make me snatch up the book. But it still needs to have an interesting story behind it to keep me reading. And in that
There are a few things I learned reading "Stalker" by Clarissa Wild.
1. Clarissa Wild is an evil mastermind.
2. I'm sick in the head and I don't think there is a cure. There has to be something wrong with me. It's not normal. It's disturbing, really. Disturbing to swoon for Phoenix Sullivan.

I don't want to give too much away, because it's best experienced while reading.

this book is literally ALWAYS intense. And so you want to keep going the whole time to know what will happen.

Essentially, Pheonix and Vanessa are two characters you aren't meant to love, they're bad people, they've killed and hurt each other, and in this book Pheonix locks up Vanessa to gain his revenge on her.

My biggest issue here is that I could relate deeply to Pheonix. His love, devotion and obsession with Vanessa is so REAL. The author wrote it so well! But when we read their h

I'm a Dark Book Snob

At least I think I am anyway. Clarissa Wild attached a warning to her blurb, which in my case makes it an instant read. I am a fan of dark books, from the likes of Pepper Winters, CJ Roberts, Lili St Germain and MS Willis. To me, those are dark books where I actually cringed at some parts. Was Phoenix messed up in the head over a girl? Yes he was, however what he did or attempted to do was pretty tame in my realm of dark.

Heck, I don't even know what to say! I can't think of one thing that wouldn't give something away! Just when I thought I knew everything Clarissa would throw one huge curve ball resulting in me being frazzled!I am so in love with Phoenix, call it crazy but oh my...I just wanted to jump him! When you learn all the things he endured it will crush you.

Any book I've read by this author I've loved so a dark romance by Clarissa was certainly a must read for me. The warnings did not do this book any justice. It was even better and darker than I expected. Yikes I loved it.

I'm not gonna go into this storyline. I think the synopsis gives you enough of a teaser. I've gotta say the storyline is fantastic. It's an addictive read that I literally inhaled.

If your looking for a gripping dark read then this is a must read. The author took my emotions and

Purtroppo, così come mi accadde con Tarryn Fisher, sono convinta al cento per cento di aver scelto il romanzo sbagliato con cui conoscere questa autrice ▬ e mi dispiace moltissimo :(

Quando scelsi di acquistare questo libro, ero sicurissima di aver trovato ciò che stavo cercando. Come facevo ad esserne così certa? Facile: l'avvertenza a fine trama. Mi sono detta: "Ahhh, finalmente un'autrice che racconta le storie che piacciono a me!".

Be', ho commesso un microscopico errore di giudizio xD

Ya es un hecho de que Clarissa Wild es una de mis autoras favoritas. Y es que ella ha despertado en mi el leer dark romance. Sus historias son crudas, dolorosas y sin duda un rollercoaster de emociones y juegos mentales.

Pensé que al leer la precuela me daría tal vez un preview de que podría venir con este libro.

Vanessa Star and Miles “Phoenix” Sullivan are two people who grew up together to only have given dealt a bad hand in life.

The story begins with Vanessa as a young innocent child finding the good in everything and everyone, especial a boy named - Miles “Phoenix” Sullivan. Vanessa is also having trouble with life today, but does no

What a sick, twisted, crazy intense read! But again, just like any other "dark" romance I've read before, the ending doesn't satisfy me. I want more, and I keep waiting for the BOOM but it never came. It's kind of disappoint me a little bit.

Phoenix is exactly a guy you don't wanna mess with. He's evil, psycho and when he hates someone, he'll hate deep. Too bad

I got so tired of reading the H abuse the h. He kept her in a cage, dragged her through the house with his belt choking her, and repeatedly insulting her. (Sigh) Romance just isn't what it used to be.

I recommend reading Killer, the prequel first. It will help with the revenge aspect. I loved Killer and I thought I'd loved this one too, but sadly it fell flat for me. The beginning started out rather well, but I felt like certain parts were repetitive. Not the entire story, no. But I can't explain in great detail without ruining the story. I didn't want to stop reading, but I skimmed some parts to get to want I wanted to read. If

5 Twisted Stars for the wickedly awesome Clarissa Wild's Stalker. WOW... Speechless. I loved every dark and dangerous minute of it.

We have Miles the man of many names who seeks justice for the wrong that has been done to him, and Vanessa the girl he once loved is his prey. What's starts out as revenge turns out to be a conflict of emotions. There are flashbacks throughout story along with duel point of view so we have a good understanding of what has transpired that leads to the events unfoldin

This one was a doozy! I really enjoyed Mr. X by Clarissa Wild but this was like an exercise in repetition. I swear to God Miles/Phoenix and Vanessa had the exact same exchange of "You're sick! How could you do this to me?!" [evil smile] "Heh, you're no angel, princess. You're getting exactly what you deserve! I'm here to punish you" like a million times with just a couple of terms switched out. The dialogue and personalities were so empty that I didn't even care about what the dramatic flashback ...more

I started reading out of curiosity for this dark love story and stayed out of curiosity for the "non-conventional ending".

It was 100 % intense, ALL the time. I mean it. There was not a boring, still moment. Something was always happening. It's all due to Phoenix being such an intense character. There's no better way to describe him. He was intense through and through.

I didn't particularly connect with the characters, but it is a dark story, so you know the characters are both bad. Though in a se

Josie's Review

Let me start off by saying I have read Books from this author in the past, most recently Mr. X, and that was all it took for me to be hooked on this author. Stalker is the prequel to Killer. You do not need to read Killer in order to enjoy and understand the connection and journey of the characters in this book, but I would recommend you do just for that fact that it is really good too. Stalker was a serious emotional roller coaster for me. Clarissa knows how to write DARK ROMANCES
