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 Star Review ***
I am a huge fan of Webster's. Her penchant for the dark and different has captivated me for a while now. So when a friend bought me this one, I couldn't wait to dive in.
Overall, I think I liked this book. There are a few elements to it that just didn't do anything for me. They made me uncomfortable. I know that it what Webster is known for these days, but it wasn't a good uncomfortable. It was... too creepy.
I have been trying to figure out how to describe how this book made me feel and what I think about it. I was on board with this book until Grayson turned extremely creepy. Usually I am hoping for these darker situations, but with this book, it just didn't mesh well. It is too romanticized, endeared.
Then there was the issue surrounding Grayson's sister and mother. What was that about? It was completely out of left field and didn't add anything but confusion to the story. I was completely baffled why it was a part of the story.
I was mostly glad for the HEA in this book. Some books deserve them. This is one. I think. I am still stuck on some things that actually made me want a not so HEA.
