R E V I E W ➠ The Villain’s Beloved by Bella J.

(The Villain’s Duet #2)


The day Elijah took me, he vowed to tame me.
I tried to fight him. Tried to survive without losing my heart.
But in the end, he did what he said he’d do… tame me.
He claimed me so unapologetically, and I surrendered willingly.
Together we found our place within the darkness.
We succumbed to wicked desires and tainted intentions.
And with every kiss, every touch, I allowed myself to fall deeper. Drowning within the seduction of a killer’s obsession.
I was reckless. Blinded by the promises of a man who wanted nothing but me.
I should have known better. Guarded my heart more fiercely.
After all—nothing good can come from falling for the villain.

RELEASE DATE: July 26, 2021

“My life forever changed because of one man who came like a thief in the night, snatching me from my world and forcing me into his . A man who, despite my inhibitions and instincts, had me falling into his arms as if it were the only place I belonged. A man who claimed to have been seduced by my music only to have me seduced by the magnetism of a wicked darkness that dripped off him like liquid temptation.”

– Charlotte

This author is fairly still new to me but I have read Book 1 in this duet & #BOOKDRUNK is all I can say right now! I started it late at night and stayed up until 130am to finish. #sigh For obvious reasons since this is duet I would recommend reading Book #1 first!

This really jumped right into where it left off, and everything after felt like I was flowing on a cloud watching this play out. This is a dark romance but when I say dark I mean a sensual sexy style, the first one included a lot of action but this was all about Elijah & Charlotte and I FELT every single page. Not wanting to ruin too much and not make much sense because this is a 2nd book to the first…THIS was mystifying, romantic, dirty, page-turned, gripping and heartbreaking. The sacrifice Charlotte made, the length Elijah was willing to go to protect her, mindlessly creating a barrier around her…everything made sense in the end and nothing was as expected.

p.s. this ended worse than a cliffhanger, so beware: emotions will play part, don’t throw your kindle! Sad and Emotional HEA but will forever stay with me! #trulove
