Reach for the scars... Remember me? Aeron Lore: happy and humble. A people person. All around nice guy. Even I can't say that with a straight face. But seriously, things are going great. Leo's behaving herself; I'm enjoying making sure she behaves. We're a great team. SilentWitn3ss, our live-streaming news project, has launched to my favorite things ever: controversy and profit. So when the FBI comes to me and wants to use SilentWitn3ss footage to trace a serial killer named Blood Honey, I'm only too happy to be superiorâI mean, to help. And if Leo thinks the brutal Blood Honey and I have a few things in common, I guess that's to be expected, given my rather unique preferences in the bedroom. My...condition. But I'm not like him. I can't stand that she would even think it. If his actions threaten my relationship with Leo, I'll hunt that fucker down myself. If he gets too close for comfort, I will make him bleedâand trust me, he's closer than I ever anticipated. There's a food chain, grasshoppers. The buck doesn't stop with him. It stops with me. Blood Honey is a nasty son of a bitch, but I can be a lot worse. Question is...do I want to be?
*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
Sociopath was that book that I had no idea what to feel about it. I loved it, but I felt guilty for loving it. I raved about it and told everyone that loves twisted romances to read it. So, of course, when I found out that there was going to be a second book I was ecstatic!
Legacy starts where the first one ended. Things are looking god for Aeron and Leo. I mean, as good as a relationship between two effed up people can be. As you know from when you read book one, do it if you haven't!, these two have conquered a lot while developing as characters while still staying almost unchangeable. I always wanted to see where these two would end up in the future. How could someone that cannot really feel emotion be able to love Leo and have a family or even some kind of future with her? I don't want to get into the specifics, but let me just say that I was extremely satisfied about how their story ended. It was definitely more than I could wish for.
The story itself was interesting. There is a serial killer on the loose that appears to be connected to Aeron in some way. But is he really?! Well, you'll have to read it to see.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. If you are a lover of all things twisted and dark, do not hesitate to pick up this book. And if you haven't read book 1, please do!

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.
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?
