Number Thirteen by Bella Jewel ~ Blog Tour 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.


I've read every book that Bella has written, Bella is a phenomenal writer.  Number Thirteen started strong, I was instantly sucked in to the story from the prologue.  It's just that something happened in the story that just didn't do it for me....was it something huge? No, it just turned me off a little.  With that said I still enjoyed the story. 3.5 stars

William is disfigured when he is Thirteen.  He is a tortured soul and becomes a master to Thirteen girls in this story.  This is how we meet Emelyn, she is one of William's captive's.  She can't remember her past or how she got to where she is but she pushes William's boundaries and makes him feel for the first time in years.  There are struggles and events that take place that I don't want to reveal because I don't want to give up the story, this is a book you need to go into with a blank slate.

Number Thirteen was intriguing and intense.  I would have loved to have seen more of a relationship develop between William and Emelyn.  Anyone that enjoys dark, emotional, intense reads will enjoy Number Thirteen.
