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. ***WARNING*** 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.

I wasn't sure what I expected going into Notice. Yes, I read the warnings so I expected some levels of darkness. I'm ok with that-sometimes books need that. I was all over the place with this book-I liked it, then I wasn't sure I liked it, then I liked it again.

I had a tough time connecting with the heroine in this story a bit. I felt for her, she did NOT have an easy path with this author, but while I could sympathize with her and her situations I never quite connected fully with her. I do appreciate that first and foremost Violet is a survivor-and I thought the author did a good job with that.

I have to admit I NEVER thought I'd like someone who is absolutely a stalker-there's no way to pretty that one up-but I did like Gray. Mostly. There's some over the top actions on his part-like he took stalking to a whole new level-but it worked for him character wise. And I mostly understood why he acted the way he did. I didn't necessarily agree with it, but I got it.

There were some issues in this book that I wish had been addressed, or handled slightly differently. Some behavior is normalized that I wouldn't ever call normal, but for spoiler purposes I won't get into that. There's also more violence here than I was expecting-and no I don't stay away from books with violence in them necessarily, but I didn't think this one needed it in some areas.

The pacing of the book was a bit rough for me in spots. The writing was fine, but the pacing just didn't always work for me. I felt it dragged a bit in the middle. The epilogue had me raising my eyebrows, though. I'm rating this a 3.5 because it made me think. The book tested my limits and had me wondering about things I wouldn't normally consider. I would try this author again.
