Product Description

Warning: This is a dark romance standalone that contains violence, strong language, and graphic sexual situations.

Revenge. Blood. Lies. Hate.

The good guy is the bad guy and the bad guy is the good guy.

Or is that what they want you to believe?

In a city where crime is at an all time high and new mutilated bodies are showing up every day, who do you trust?

He’s the silent neighbor who vanishes at night and reappears when the morning news is reporting on the latest victim.

How do you know this?

You watch him through the curtains as his silent stalker. Everything about him is twisted, but you can’t get past his stare. It’s hypnotizing and the hardest pull you’ve ever know it’s all wrong.

Then he walks through your front door covered in blood.

Who will you trust?

This is very different from anything I have been reading in a long long time.
This story is not all rainbows & lollypops. Its gritty, emotional & raw.
HJ Bellus has taken her 2 characters, Van & Bay, she has ripped them apart piece by piece & then put them back together and
repaired them, rebuilt them and restored them bit by bit. She has created a forever once in a lifetime love.

I actually don’t remember the last time a character was so facinating and enthralling to me that at times I actually felt like I was reading about a friend/family member.
But that is exactly what happened with Van & Bay. I felt like Bay was my sister & Van was my friend that I wanted to wrap up in cotton wool & protect from the world!

Van & Bay probably seem doomed to most readers from the beginning but the are perfectly matched. She calls him her big bad wolf, but that is as far from the truth as you
can get. He doesn’t love easily, but when he does he is all in.
Bay is just gorgeous. She sees something in Van that no one does & it was never a question that she would belong to him.

HJ Bellus has once again brought her characters to life in a way that has you falling in love with them and her writing.
As an added bonus, her cover for this book is so spot on, this is exactly what I pictured Van to look like & having that visual made it easier to picture him in my mind within the context
of the story.

Well done to HJ Bellus on giving us another 5+ star story!

I just finished this and I can honestly say, I am not impressed. It grabbed me from the beginning, but lost me soon after. Bay gave me whiplash. I couldn't understand her behaviour with the 2 men at the start...I don't want to go into detail and spoil it for persons reading this... I was quite disgusted by her indecision. Also her best friend...? I didn't understand her at all about Gannon. And Van....*shakes head* Especially the part with Honey (and I mean stripper not a sweet spread you put on toast). Just "Eeewwww".
Then the 'issues' with the H... I guessed the ending, it was predictable...but I felt there were gaps in information. I just didn't understand the flow of the story...maybe there was none.
It had such promise, but I struggled to finish. I REALLY tried not to skim or skip either.
I don't think I will be reading this author again. I'm actually upset I paid for this.

HASH(0xafd7521c) out of 5 stars Disappointment from middle to end. 27 February 2016
By Dirty Words - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
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.

HASH(0xafdd7dd4) out of 5 stars You're my story from beginning to end 23 February 2016
By Bhounsell - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
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."

HASH(0xafd65900) out of 5 stars The Hunted 23 February 2016
By Danny J - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Wow, this was a lot grittier story than what I have read from HJ Bellus in the past and HJ did a great job in setting a dark, edgy and mysterious atmosphere.

For me, at times, the story felt a little rushed and in particular, I would have liked the ending and conclusion dragged out a little more. At times, I also felt that some of the language that the characters used not really fitting with the customers persona.

That being said, I really liked that the story was fast paced and engrossing. It was hot as hell and I'm a real sucker for a brooding bad boy. I was glad that HJ didn't soften up our Hero in any way.

One of the stars of the show for me was Basil's mother; her scenes really cut through the edginess and provided that snippet of light relief throughout.

I was gifted a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

HASH(0xb02c8360) out of 5 stars Hunted will leaving you wanting more--Great Read 23 February 2016
By April R Symes - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This was such a powerful book that will make you think and be grateful for the small things because it’s the dark that can reach out and get you. This is a dark romantic read, so dark and its is a steamy romance. If this this something you like, keep going on this review, if not, do not read further.
Basil (Bay) grew up on the poor side of the tracks but she grew up with a pretty , sweet, and rich friend Ivy who was there for her. Van has moved away from home to attend college and its art school that she wants to attend. Only thing is, she doesn’t have money to pay for college so she has taken up stripping to pay and she lives hand to mouth –things her mother and best friend do not know and she plans on never telling them. Then she runs into tall, dark and handsome Van Hollis across the hall. He really gets her motor running. But he doesn’t speak to her.
Next time she sees him is at the club where she is stripping. He flips out because she is stripping and he takes her home. There is this immediate chemistry between them that is like sex on a stick and if a match was lit, they both would go up in flames. But Mr. Tall, Dark and Handsome Van is very alpha in his behavior toward Bey and he is very protective of her. They start this dance that is taking on a roller coaster ride of passion.
Bey has these friends she cares about –Ivy and Gannon. They are there for her during her crazy ride with Van- Oh and the ride had its ups –and those times were fantastic and then they had their downs which were bad. There were coming times which were bad, very very bad. The story that the author writes which leaves you hanging on the edge of your seat.Its a dark, passionate, highly charged, very sexual book with moments of terror that leaves you needing more.
There is a huge twist and turn in this book which made me jump and go WOW. You cannot go wrong in the read for this book.

My Ratjng: 4.7 stars *****

HASH(0xafe114e0) out of 5 stars Captivating! 23 February 2016
By Lara Lynn - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
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.
