Reach for the scars...
Remember me? Aeron Lore: happy and humble. A people person. All around nice guy.
Even I can's 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 an wants me to use SilentWitn3ss footage to trace a serial killer named Bloody Honey, I'm only too happy to be superior-I mean, to help. And if Leo thinks the brutal and Bloody 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 thing 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 bleed-and 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?

"At the end of the day, you’re just a savage in a suit."
Lime Craven is one of kind in a sense. Her books are dark with a twisted humor, it makes the reading that much more enjoyable. I've been on a list of sociopaths for days now, I haven't had any light. I needed this, I still got my dark, but I got some light in there too. Don't mistake my meaning, this is still a book for the twisted, so don't read unless you like sick with a side of funny. If you know what I mean.
Sociopath was just the seed to a full blown plant, the vines were growing. This book bloomed. I have to be honest and say I loved this one more than the first. We still got the pompous Aeron, the doubtful Leo, but they were more relatable this time, maybe because we know them now. I don't know the real reason, but they hold a dark spot in my heart, before they didn't. I wouldn't mind another book, I never say that either. When a story is over, I liked to stay that way, not the case here. I actually want more, crazy, right? I might have just fell for Aeron. I feel like I'm a crazy scientist and I need to know all of his depraved thoughts, his motives. It's fascinating.
"This is Aeron Lore in all three dimensions , his smell, his taste, the bulk of him bearing down on me. I didn’t want to want this. I didn’t plan to fall, but the mountain… the mountain was so high, and I was walking in the dark, and in the end, aren’t we all made to falter?"
These books seem to have an love/hate affect on readers. The characters missing that "real" factor that we all relate to. But, hey if you like the twisted side, I definitely recommend. Lime Craven is one to look out for, she's powerful with her twisted words.
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?
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.
