Come on this heart wrenching, dark, angsty and dangerous adventure as two people so opposite, find something so beautiful.
I haven’t read any Bella Jewel’s books until now. Even though I have all of them in my TBR lists, I still haven’t read them, but heard they were good and hot…and oh boy! Hot this one was!!!
This book is Supernova HOT! But it’s not just about the sex, it has a good story behind it, and that’s why I gave it 5 stars…
It was not only my first Bella Jewel book, but also my first pirate book and I loved the theme! It’s more like a modern pirate, as the characters put, they are like a Motorcycle Club, but on the seas! And it’s true!
I loved all the characters and I have a feeling I’ll like the next one even better! Dimitri intrigued the hell out of me! He looks like my favorite type of book boyfriend: damaged, dark and HOT!
Let’s start with the main characters…Indigo is a snarky and strong heroine and I LOVED her! I hate weak females and she is badass! Hendrix is hot and jerky, just how I like them too! But he broke my heart over treating Indigo in a jerky way sometimes…Luckily he mended it all right!
I liked that they took time to fall in love and get to know each other and the sexual tension and chemistry was a done deal! Off the charts chemistry and hot scenes!
There’s a little mystery (that I was figuring out at the same time Hendrix was) and what is coming next is even more intriguing!!
It ended leaving me wanting MORE and MORE! I can’t wait for more sexy pirates!!! This girl needs an eye-patch STAT, so she can join the sexy pirates’ crusade!!!

“Stand up, this will be easier if you do,” he orders. He stands, taking me with him, and I lose my balance when I accidentally try to lift the wrong foot. Hendrix reaches out, taking my shoulder and goes to take a step forward to steady me, only to realize he’s wrapped the rope around his ankle, and is now tangled too. As if in slow motion, we topple backwards. I scream, and land with a thump on the ground as the ropes surround me. Hendrix lands over me, but manages to put his hand down to stop me taking the force of his body. He’s pressing into me in places he really shouldn’t be.
“Fuck,” he curses, tugging his hand to try and untangle it.
“How the hell did you get tangled too?” I cry out, squirming.
“Stop fuckin’ squirming like that,” he orders, and I stop as soon as I realize why he’s asked me to. He’s hard. My God, he’s hard.
“I’m fuckin’ hard because you’re squirming against me. I’m a man. Get over it.”
