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 f**k out of it. Maybe exploit the f**k 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.

WARNING: 18+. Contains abuse triggers and scenes that some may find disturbing.

“I grew up an only child, which means you can look at my toys – I’ll show them off, in fact – but god help you if you lay a finger on them.”

I wish I could say I loved this one. A lot of people did. Sadly, Sociopath fell short for me. I never connected with the hero or heroine. Nothing. Nada. Zilch. I kept waiting for it to happen. I really wanted it to. I love a great
dark read and I think this book had the potential to be that, but I just never cared enough about the characters to be interested in how dark their story became.

In the beginning I was actually bored. I hate to say that, but I was. The opening should have been fun and full of intrigue. We are introduced to our anti-hero and it is told from his POV. Normally I love this. I love the guy’s point of view! And I love an anti-hero, but this guy was no good. He just didn’t work for me, so the introduction of our sociopath felt dragged out. I actually put the book down for several months before trying again. It still didn’t work for me.

Like I said, the story had great potential and a lot of people loved it. There were moments that I would have really loved if I had liked either character. It wasn’t all bad and the writing was good. I am definitely not counting Lime Craven out. I will seek out her next book for sure. Her writing is strong and her world building is great. I look forward to reading her next novel.
