Sociopath's Obsession

Book: Sociopath's Obsession
Series: Sociopaths Duet #1
Author: V.F. Mason

Life, as I knew it, was over one year ago.
I lost my family, my home and any support that came with it.
Living in a crappy apartment with my roommate and working two jobs was not how I envisioned my future.
However, that was one of the things my family had taught me.
Dreams and illusions held no power in the real world.
All this was worth it though as long as I knew I was safe.
Until he showed up, shattering any peace I had.

Violence towards those who wronged me was my only salvation and revenge.
Nothing brought me greater pleasure than the pain and suffering I inflicted on my victims.
Until I met her.
She became my obsession.
My Sapphire.
If I were a better man, I would have left her alone and never made her part of my life.
But I was a monster.
And monsters didn't have hearts.-Goodreads

Review:  Sapphire (the only child of a wealthy family) has an intense sexual experience with a handsome stranger at one of her parents house parties. Afterwards, she discovers a horrible truth about her father. In an attempt to address the situation, Sapphire, along with her best friend, end up cut off financially and emotionally from their families. One year later, the girls are at a nigh club in NYC when Sapphire runs into the handsome stranger and his twin brother. When she receives an email from a serial killer at-large known as Sociopath letting her know she is his next victim, she turns to one of the twins for help.

This book has a lot going on-kidnapping, murder, suicide, sex trafficking, child rape, twins, sex. If you have any sort of triggers about difficult subject matter, do not read this book. While the romance itself is dark (serial killer kidnaps a woman he's in love with), the most difficult and heartbreaking parts to read are what happened to the twins as children. It was horrifying. I can understand why Sociopath is a...sociopath (he is definitely more Dexter Morgan than Ted Bundy). I think the only thing could help him are intensive years of therapy (not a sexy woman with piercing blue eyes) but hey, it's a romance so you have to go with it. 

Grade: 3/5
