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

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.

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

DNF @ 50%.

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.
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

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

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.

I hate books that have the MC talking to the reader. It just takes me out of the book tbh and half the time it's never done right. This one didn't do it right. With the MC talking to the reader as well as the added "trying too hard to be bad", it just threw everything off for me. "I'm bad, I'm the baddest of the bad" and "ive done so many bad things bad people fear me" yada yada (not the exact lines but you get what I'm talking about). That's like a school bully strutting around like a peaco

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

***An Advanced Reader Copy of Stalker by Clarissa Wild was generously provided to me via the author herself in exchange of honest review.

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

3.5 Stars!

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.

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

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

**Blogger note: I received this novel from the author in exchange for an honest review.**

Stalker follows two troubled people… Phoenix was in love at a young age. He loved Vanessa, the only little girl who would talk to him while everyone else befriended him. Their friendship continues throughout the years, Vanessa blatantly disobeying her parents. When they reach the peak of adulthood, the pressure is on and things change. She betrays him, more than once, against her own will, hurting him more

I loved Killer and I was pleased how this book started pretty much where the other story ended. I hate that Vanessa feels so bad about her self that she is willing to allow Arthur to treat her the way he does. I don't think she sees it this way but I do. I liked how the author had us learn about their past, there were so many beautiful parts when Vanessa saw a good person in Miles but as the story progressed my heart broke for him, I hated how he was treated by the others kids and then Vanessa's ...more

I love picking up a dark romance once in a while, and was super excited to get my hands on Stalker. Clarissa Wild took me into the dark and cruel world of Phoenix, an angry and violent man, hell bent on seeking revenge against his childhood friend Vanessa, the now famous actress that sent him to prison.

Phoenix and Vanessa have a complicated past. Through flash backs I was able to see what they had to deal with and
