Review/Giveaway: Sociopath By Lime Craven

The name's Aeron Lore. And you are...? Such a pleasure to meet you, sweetheart. Is that a southern accent? Gorgeous. 

You fucking bitch.

Why so surprised? I control a billion dollar fortune. I control the news. Give me five minutes and I'll control you, too. If you could read my mind, you'd probably call me perverted. Unnatural. Manipulative. But I've learned to blend in, to be funny and charming. A predator in a designer suit.

I have no conscience. No shame in taking the things I want. And what I wanted was for Leontine Reeves to sell me her boutique tech firm so I could exploit the fuck out of it. Maybe exploit the fuck out of her, too, because desire haunts me in shades of scarlet, and I desire Leo most of all.

I never meant for this to be a love story. I fought it kicking and screaming, the same way Leo fought me. Now we're bleeding into each other, making a mess. A chaos. There's no control here. And what do monsters like me do when control leaves the building? 

We attack.

My Review

4 Mindfuck Stars!

This book is brilliant! Had me at the synopsis I mean look at it doesn't it sound like a awesome book? Doesn't it intrigue you? Well it totally made me want to get my hands on it since I love a dark twisted read.Everyone needs a good mindfuck once in a while ;)

Trust (Noun):the warm, fuzzy realisation that you have way too much dirt on someone for them to fuck you over.

This is Lime Craven's debut novel and I'm totally impressed.Bravo Lime Craven you have another fan right here.I can't wait to see what other books will be written by this author and read them all.I loved the way this book was written throughout this book you are in the sociopath Aeron's head and he is speaking directly to you.Let me start by saying I am intrigued by all things psychopath, sociopath, serial killers and so on. I've always wanted to study them and find out why they do the things they do, (Dexter is also one of my top fav shows) so this was definitely right up my street!

'Boys get picked on for owning dolls, but nobody gives a shit if a grown man buys himself a pretty puppet.And this, my friends, is the world we have built for ourselves.'

I read a few reviews where people feel like they couldn't connect with Aeron and it was too much being in his head and so on. That really wasn't the case for me I enjoyed it and a lot of things he said I found quite amusing.He kept me interested, I didn't want to stop reading, I had to continue.I had to know what would happen next, where would the story go? What kind of secrets would be unfolded? This wasn't a fast-paced book like I expected it to be yet the way it was written made you want to read on.It was like if you stopped now you would always be left wondering what would have happened.

'A rich man desires little but the things he cannot buy'

This is a dark read not the darkest I've read but some people wouldn't be able to handle some of the scenes which were disturbing.There is no rape or beating but the main character have dark kinky and twisted taste. Leontine Reeves is another character with many layers, whilst we are trying to figure out Aeron we forget about Leontine at times which is a mistake.Both these characters harbor secrets which can destroy the other but in the end what will happen?

..I feel a lot of things; just not for other people. I'm self-serving.

Can a man without a conscience, who only thinks about how things would affect him..Can he fall in love? Are sociopaths able to love or does it become more of an obsession? A dark need to obtain?

'Love is just a scar you can't see'

I think it would have been a full 5 stars if the ending wasn't as rushed I felt like I got thrown a load of information at the end and I wanted more.Some parts I felt like should have been more detailed stuff about Aeron's mother and father. And I wanted to know more about how Aeron was with Ash. I just wanted more, I didn't want it to end. We got a glimpse into Leontine's mind in the end but I want to know more her end was rather vague.The ending just felt abrupt but other than that fantastic debut!

About the author

I like dysfunction. Broken people who can't fix each other, but fit together because they're missing the same pieces. One of my favourite songs declares, "take the sinner down to feed desire," and that's my MO. I write dirty psychological thrillers with strong elements of dark romance. 

I love antiheroes. Female characters who don't just accept their faults, but downright exploit them. No nice boys. No shame. Mindfuckery for all.
