Notice by K. Webster

I didn’t notice her before…but now I do.
The shiny strands of gold in her silky brown hair.
Tiny crinkles between her eyebrows when she frowns.
Her passion for neatness.

Once I focus on her, I can’t take my eyes from my newest obsession. Ever.
I need to know everything about her.
Her past. Her present.
The way she takes her coffee.
Exactly how she smells after a spritz of perfume in the mornings.

She’s perfect in every way and I was blind.
But, God, now do I see.

I notice the organized way she arranges her clothes in her closet.
How she visits the same market each Saturday.
The sounds of her breathing as I lie beneath her bed in silence.

Violet is mine.
She just doesn’t know it yet.

Notice is a dark and unusual romance. Extreme sexual themes and violence in certain scenes, which could trigger emotional distress, are found in this story. If you are sensitive to dark themes, then this story is not for you. If you aren't into super obsessive stalkers, then this story is not for you.

3.75 out of 5 stars

Notice is an interesting story about a rich stalker and a woman who attracts stalkers.

Violet's previous boyfriend (and stalker) abused her in many ways. So she ran away from him and never told anyone where she was. She just wanted to start a new life away from her painful past.

For years, she worked for Grayson Maxwell, and he never noticed her. He literally couldn't multitask or pay attention to other things while he was closing deals at his company. So when Violet gives him her two week notice, Grayson finally sees her for the first time... and he'll do anything to keep her.

I enjoyed reading his point of view and going through the stages of his addiction to Violet. It's a bit odd reading about his stalking skills in detail, but overall it was an fun experience.
