What the What?

The good, the bad, and the ugly best describes “Deranged” by Amanda Lee. So let’s start with the good. The book’s premise is a good one. Nikki, Nicole’s alter ego, manifested at an early age to deal with the things Nicole’s fragile mind could not. Nikki doesn’t mind speaking up on Nicole’s behalf or even acting out when she feels Nicole has been wronged. With the men in Nicole’s life doing her wrong, Nikki has plenty of work to do. That is where all goodness ends, at the core of it
Reader's Paradise
Nicole's father didn't let a day go by where she had to question his love for her. She knew he would keep her safe from harm but most of all she knew he loved her. Unlike her mother who Nicole called evil she made her life a living hell. She denied her food and made her sleep in a dark barn, as punishment. As a child she never understood why her mother didn't love her. Why don't you love me mommy? What did I do mommy? Why you hate me so much? Why Mama?
All Nicole wanted was a mother and a father

Nicole is just escaping an abusive relationship by murdering her abusive boyfriend (per Nikki) and later tries to move forward and live a normal life. However this is impossible when she tries to build a relationship with new love interest Jeremy who lets it be known from the beginning, he is in it for the sex. Nicole seems to once again get involve in a ...more

First off let me start by saying that this book was good in the sense of the storyline. The idea was a good one and I feel like it could have been a five star had the dialogue been different. It kept me engaged and interested in what Nicole/Nikki would do next. That being said, I can't help but admit that the dialogue, in my humble opinion, was absolutely AWFUL. Every other word in that book was "b****." It was so tedious to read. I was like geez really. I would flip to random parts of the book ...more

My exposure to African American Southern Gothic Urban Pulp Fiction Horror (whew) is pretty limited, so I’ll review Deranged in the sprit of it’s own... derangement I guess!

Anyway, on with the review. This is one “crazy” story that is uncompromisingly over the top in every imaginable sense, utterly politically incorrect, trashy fun, and as inspirational as a punch in the dick. There’s no literary pretensions here, and Deranged is completely unapologetic about it.

Nikki/Nicole is our serial killin

On the aftermath of an abusive past and in order to lead a somewhat normal life Nicole blocks out her childhood memories.
In dealing with current relationships, Nicole expects commitment, trust and love, something she felt was lacking in her upbringing. But her latest beau Jeremy goes against all these things, which could prove to be deadly for him!

I kept wondering how Nicole could just up and afford to move as she pleased, considering how she handled her job it was clo

Amanda Lee. Her book deranged was just that. This chic Nicole was a stone cold crazy. Reminds I'd Kendall Banks books 1 night stand and a another 1 night stand. I don't know who was crazier.
