Number Thirteen by Bella Jewel Review and Giveaway


Title: Number Thirteen
Author: Bella Jewel
Release Date: March 19, 2014
Genre: Dark Romance
**AUTHOR NOTE - This is NOT a BDSM Romance**

We're thirteen girls, captive, slave to our master.

  A master we've never seen.
Obedience will become all we know in our shallow existence.
It is the only emotion we're permitted to feel.
When we're bad, we're punished.
 When we're good, we're rewarded.
  Our scars run deep.
Yet we survive, because we have to... because HE teaches us to.

All of us are special, we feel it with everything we are.
He has us for a reason, but it's a reason we don't know.
We've never seen his face, but we know that something deeply
broken lies beneath the darkness.
With every touch, with every punishment, we know it.
Then something changed. He showed me who he truly is. Now I want him. I'll go against everything I know to be with him.
A monster.

My monster.

Loving him is a sin, but a sinner I am.
I won't stop until I see every part of him.
 Even the parts he keeps locked deep down inside.

I am Number Thirteen, and this is my story.
No one said it was pretty, or right, but it's mine.  

Buy the Book
This book...fuck! This book ate me up. 
William is a Monster in every sense of the word. We get this right from the beginning. The prologue itself is a magnetic force that had me gasping for breaths. I was stunned stupid. Stupid, I say!

No one deserves to die.
But I did die, that day.
And in my place, a monster was born. 
William captivated me with his in depth need to protect, but also left me speechless as I found such abuse from him. He's dark and brooding. Broken and misunderstood. William is soft but also brutal.

Number 13: No memory of her life before William and the 12 other girls she now finds herself living with. She's a fighter! 1 of the only girls who does. She hates her captivity and wants to know why. Why is she here? The questions just continued to pile up.

I'm a piece of jagged glass, too. Maybe together we can find a way to fit.

GIRL!!! Why you want to go and think that shit!!! I wanted to smack the ever living lights out of Number 13. And then, I got it. I really was gobsmacked. Number 13 is human. With all of our silly emotional feelings and strange sense of knowing. But, FUCK!!! It was painful to finally get it. 

I felt ripped open. I had this uncontrollable need to walk away from the book. I did. I put this book down for 2 days before I could finish it. The writing is unbelievably catching, but the feelings that came with it had me at my lowest low and my highest high. I was depressed. I was giddy. 

"Nothing can hurt more than losing the only thing you've ever fought for." 

Loving him is a sin; of that I'm fully aware. But a sinner I am. 

Things you need to be prepared: 
Deep breathes people!!! Chocolate (if that's your style) or Salty chips. Wine, beer, liquor- Fuck it! Bring all 3 with you. Kleenex. And some happy pills. 
Trust me, you'll be thankful I've recommended this list. 

5++ Jagged edged glass pieces of Whore-Tas-Tic Stars!!!
