Summary

Mark Murray loves his girlfriend, Rebecca Lucio, but she doesn’t love him. She believes their love has withered away, and she has already fallen for another man, but she struggles to formally end her relationship with Mark. But Mark knows everything already – the lies, the deceit, the cheating. He has a plan to punish Rebecca in the most violent, disgusting way possible. He is going to make her sick…unbelievably sick.

Jon Athan, the author of Dr. Sadist and Scattershot, reinvents the definition of “lovesick” in this disgusting, gag-inducing, and extremely violent horror novel.

Warning: This novel contains graphic content. Reader discretion is advised.

My Review

5/5 Stars

Very, very dark and twisted. Perfect for fans of cringy horror.

It’s been a full day since I finished listening to this audiobook, and I can’t stop thinking about it. There were so many wtf moments, moments where I cringed, and moments where I was like Nooo. It also made me rethink ever eating at a fast food restaurant.

After Mark finds out that his girlfriend is cheating on him, he’s devastated. That pain quickly turns to anger and then a desire for revenge. He kidnaps her, holding her hostage where he uses different, worsening methods of torture every day. As he spirals deeper and deeper into his madness, his methods get worse.

Narration was great. Characters were vivid and stood out. Especially Mark and his depravity.

This isn’t a book I would recommend to people who can’t handle gore. If cringey horror is your style though, I highly recommend this short read.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
