    1. Literally one of the most unique novels I have ever read.It took me half a month to read because i was savouring every moment of this reading experience.It was intense, romantic, dangerous and touching.A coming of story novel that will knock you side ways.

    2. When I started this book, I knew it would deal with some pretty "heavy" subject matter. After all, the blurb is pretty forthcoming about the fact that rape is commonplace in this futuristic world that Mya Robarts created. While it proved to be every bit as gut-wrenching as I expected, there were also more moments of simplistic beauty than I had anticipated. Given the dark, gritty and downright gloomy existence that the heroine lives, these few exquisite moments provided her with the inspiration [...]

    3. The V Girl is possibly the most heart-wrenching, stomach wrenching and, if that even makes sense, steamiest panty-wrenching book I read in years, possibly ever. It’s brutal, sexy, addictive and completely unique. Imagine getting a mix of the feelings of despair and love of Hopeless with a brutal future like the handmaid’s tale, with a war setting where romance will blossom like the bronze horseman with the gut-wrenching angst of the hunger games, with the slow sexual tension of the captive p [...]

    4. **UPDATE 12/10/16**So this book has apparently been revised and re-edited to fix all the glaring errors that I had problems with before. I decided to give this story another chance because it had a lot of potential to be great and it is! Whereas before, I was so distracted by all the grammatical errors that I just couldn't fully get into the story, now I was completely immersed in Lila's world. Even though I read this book a while back, and ultimately knew what happened, I found myself staying u [...]

    5. V. PARENTAL GUIDANCE ALERT:A Court of Wings and Ruin is NEW ADULT/EROTICA but Goodreads editors won't tell you

      encrypted-tbn2tatic/imSebastian Rolli as Aleksey Fürst. (Thanks Michelle for telling me the name of this hot dude)Re-read: sent me a letter to update the book. Love it EVEN more the second time. First and foremost. I DON'T WANT IT TO END! I WANT MORE PLEASE!!!!! Thank you Mya Roberts for writing this beautiful, epic LOVE STORY. Now the theme itself is so HORRIFYING that for a while I debated whether I wanted to read the book or not. Usually rape is not something I want to read. In fact I read [...]

    6. Mya Robarts’ The V-Girl: 3 “50 Million Shades of the Rainbow” Stars.In a free society, sex doesn’t come in fifty shades of grey, but fifty-million shades of every color in the rainbow. Unfortunately, Lila Velez doesn’t live in a free society. Where she lives, sex is mostly mean red. Rape is a government-sanctioned activity, and most 18 year olds are publically defiled. For Lila, the question isn’t if she should lose her virginity, but to whom? “I need a partner who cares for me, ev [...]

    7. †“You usually can’t recall all the people you’ve shared laughs with. But you rarely forget the people you’ve shared your tears with.”†Rarely I find myself irrevocably captivated and in love with such a brilliant book. Not only does this fantastic read transports you to another world, it takes you on a fucking journey like no other. One that makes you feel. I’ve shamelessly read this book twice, as well as my favorite parts a gazillion times, and each read felt as if it was the fi [...]

    8. Wow, The V-Girl is one hell of a book. What a punch it throws to the heart and soul! There are so many amazing things about this story that this review will be a bit lengthy.But since I don’t want to make it cover 20 pages like an analytical essay, here’s a quick bullet list of some great things:• Lots of anti-rape messages (yes!)• Pro-consent messages (yes!)• Anti slut-shaming messages (yes!)• Healthy relationship choices/behaviors (such as being honest about expectations/wants, def [...]

    9. You can see this and other reviews on my blog: Book Nerd ParadiseAt first, I was very cautious to try out The V Girl. It sat on my TBR shelf for months as I went back and forth on whether to read it or not. I didn't know how much violence there was, or what kind of violence, and it made me hesitant. The blurb isn't very clear as to how explicit the book is, or if it's more along the lines of bdsm/erotica.In the end, I took a chance, figuring that I could just set it aside if it made me too uncom [...]

    10. Thank you, Mya for the e-book copy in exchange for an honest review! I fucking loved it!! The V Girl by Mya Robarts.Has a gif ever been more accurate? 'The V Girl' by Mya Robarts is Brutal yet Brilliant.Set in post apocalyptic America, The V Girl illustrates a society where rape is not only legal, but excepted. In her awesome debut, Mya Robarts crafts a unique story with unforgettable characters and tackles heavy topics effortlessly and with maturity.At times, 'The V Girl' is difficult to read. [...]

    11. *V for Valez* *V for valiant**V for voyeur* -4.5 Stars ****/*Enter a world of post-apocalyptic war, soldiers go from town to town to collect young men and women not only recruiting them as soldiers but as sexual slaves as well, people are dying, virgin girls are raped to cure soldiers from STD. At each town the recruitment process consist of one unluckily sex slave being raped on a ceremonial stone, Lila’s biggest fear!!!!The soldier’s drink hormonal drugs making them look meaner and stronge [...]

    12. I love everything about this book. The heroine, the setting, the writing, the raw quality of it. I love Lila she's unique, never met anyone like her in books. Lila and Aleksey together are perfection, they deserve happiness love and the human touch. I demand a sequel. People this is a #mustread. Even the titles are beautiful: "The Accord Prince" "The human touch" "Hope and Love" "His one and only" and the quotes are so beautiful. I highlighted the hell out of this book.

    13. SO SO SO SO Soooooo good! You know that scene in Pride and Prejudice? The 2005 version where they share that beautiful heartwrenching moment beside the rising sun and a part of you just dies? Well this book did that to me. Admittedly a lot of my death has to do with Aleksey Furst, but it was also how well this book is written!The heroine, Lila Velez, is kick-ass and Aleksey Furst is beyond unbelievably wonderful. Rather than summarize the plot as some reviews have already done nicely, I want to [...]

    14. FINALLY a well written book with a seemingly simple yet disturbing plot. I know. NO one likes or should like to read about rape. But this book doesn't focus on the actual "rape". (view spoiler)[It would've made me sick if the entire book was filled with this but luckily there were only a few well placed brutal scenes to bring out the horror (hide spoiler)]. It focuses on the fighting, mentally & physically which totally awed me. The love story is so real. It's built so slowly (totally luvvvv [...]

    15. "Who ever knew we would say goodbye to oblivion? Who ever knew we would accept hope?”UN DÍA. ESO FUE LO QUE ME TOMÓ LEER ESTE LIBRO PORQUE NO LO SOLTÉ DESDE QUE LO EMPECÉ. Se trata de una distopía adulta, nos transportan a un mundo donde los abusos sexuales son algo común y no está penalizado por la ley. Es duro, es fuerte y si son muy sensibles no lo lean porque impacta bastante.Lily Velez sabe que se acerca la ceremonia de reclutamiento y se está quedando sin tiempo, siendo todavía [...]

    16. “Unlike Diaz, for me there has only been, and will always be, only one woman: You.”How can you not love Aleksey for thisBlame it on my curiosity for wanting to know how's life during/after wars could be. So it brought me to this book. I expect it to be dark and disturbing. Which is a yes for me. Legal rape? Well, there will be times when human become uncivilized. Desperation? Of course when life is too cruel, human do whatever they can to survive. You give help, you will get tortured as well [...]

    17. The threat of a life of slavery puts Lila in a harsh situation. She wants to take control over her sexuality. In the process to save herself from recruitment she meets Aleksey Furst, a hunky man who wears red cape and always scowls. Where, oh where I've seen a man like that?Lila's feelings for Aleksey are extremely conflicted. Despite her physical attraction to him, she cannot make herself trust him. Aleksey's love for her was so obvious for me. I couldn’t wait to find out if they would end up [...]

    18. I must say it's been quite a while since I've read a book that managed to capture my full attention. This book is a must read. It really addresses some serious concerns in today's society. The presence of rape culture is a bitter and unfortunate truth in today's world. This is a beautiful and wonderful book the end one must always remember everyone has the ability to be loved. All in all.I simply ate this book up!And as for Alexy.*sigh*

    19. 4,5 “It was an intense, fast-paced, unique ride” StarsWow, what an incredibly good story. A wild ride, yes, but an incredible story. I wish there was more. More to read. Not because I was left unsatisfied, on the contrary, but because I fell in love with both Aleksey and Lila. So much so, that I wish there was a second book, so I could get more of them. Unfortunately, that’s not the case. I need to point out that if you’re highly uncomfortable with subjects like rape, violence, and injus [...]

    20. Thank you to NetGalley, Xpresso Book Tours and Mya Robarts for the ARC in exchange for an honest review. I appreciate it!From its hypnotic cover and intriguing description, I knew I was in for an interesting read with The V Girl, the first novel from author Mya Robarts. What I didn’t expect was to unveil a stirring and horrifyingly accurate portrayal of rape culture, the decaying state of equality, and the brutality of war.The V Girl should be required reading for anyone who thinks feminism is [...]

    21. HOLY SHIT!SOOOO THAT JUST HAPPENED!I don't think that I have ever -in the history of reading books- come across something like this. I don't know if I could ever find the words to describe this book but one thing is for sure it was entertaining as hell!

    22. See this review in its natural environment, Dani Reviews Things.Rating: 4.5 starsBefore I continue, I want to make this absolutely clear. This book could be potentially triggering for people who have suffered abuse and/or rape.The V Girl is a deeply uncomfortable book to read, but I couldn't stop. Tackling hard issues such as war, abuse, rape, with a heavy mix of growing up and figuring out your own sexuality, Robarts told a story I am a little frightened to say I loved. Narrated by Lila, an 18- [...]

    23. Will give full review soon… I need to let this one sit with me for a bit before I divulge.Update August 27th, 2016: For those reading this review after this date a print edition is now available for purchase! amazon/V-girl-Mya-RobSo apparently, I was thinking so much about this book long after finishing it, that I forgot to give my review!So, without further ado. This book was amazing. I stumbled upon this while looking for something different and new to read. I had been in a bit of a reading [...]

    24. It took me a while before finally picking up this book, since I am not really fond of virgin heroines who, most often than not, are weak, stupid crybabies (and I kind of assumed from the title that this would contain one). It turns out I'm partially wrong, because while this indeed has a virgin heroine, she's not an idiot who cries easily in every chapter. No, she tries to control her own destiny in the only possible way she can, at a time when rape is actually legal (by trying to lose her virgi [...]

    26. This was a book recommendation and I took it. This is a so called coming of age story in a pre-apocalyptic era. I was drawn into this story immediately after reading the first chapter. I found myself intrigued reading deep into the back story of some of the characters. The lead female character is a strong and caring person. She is trying to D Flower herself by using her best male friend before she is legally gang raped. This is a Out of the box story when two individuals find each other and bot [...]

    27. Paperback came in the mail today pleasantly surprising me yes! I cannot wait to delve into the world again to see what has changed from the old version, so surreal seeing my name in the acknowledgment section of an awesome book! Definitely recommended to those who haven’t read it yet BUT are use to reading new adult due to some subject matters *directs you to the premise summary*—�-e-copy kindly provided by author4.5 review to come, I need to process this all. In short it was addictive and [...]

    28. Let me start by saying this This book is the most devastating, sexually frustrating, most arousing, absolutely horrifically beautiful book I've read in forever- or maybe just ever. I did not think I would like this book. I have my own tragedy from childhood so the mention of abuse and rape tend to steer me running in the opposite direction. Boy would I have regretted every word I didn't read of this book of I had passed on it. Now it's not light, short, or hollow. It's complex, terrible, hauntin [...]

    29. Same Review Also Posted In My Blog: Dreamy AddictionsI found this book while browsing through and after reading it’s blurb, I was very intrigued. The synopsis may sound horrifying and uncomfortable to some readers so this book is definitely not for everyone. At first, I was afraid I wouldn’t like this book but when I finally got into it, It was hard for me to put this down. The story was really captivating and it held my attention through out. Lila and Aleksey are wonderful main characters [...]

    30. **I received a copy of this book in exchange from my honest review**The first word I thought of when I finished this book was:wow.It was almost one of those speechless moments where you are pleasantly surprised by how good a book was. I normally read dystopia books or romance books that are light reads and can easily be read quickly so I can then move onto the next book. However, I was unable to do so with this book.This author has serious talent in making a world so realistic that I feared for [...]
