They called it a cult. I called it home.

ABIGAIL
I dont regret running away from home six years ago. I wound up at Good Souls, a secluded farm where I could fight my dark, dirty impulses and remain pure. I knew that soon I would receive the ultimate reward: ascension straight to heaven. Then the police raided our farm and took everything away. They called it being rescued.

For six long years she was brainwashed by an evil man named Brady Booker. When the farm is raided and she is rescued her reentry into society is not an easy. When her doctor suggests that she try making friends and maybe even dating Abigail decides to give it a shot. On her first night out she meets the handsome and sexy Mason. ...more

4.5 STARS!!

This book was fantastically written! Oh my! And this is Sansa Rayne's first full length novel! The way she has described the story, that is the way the heroine struggles with her demons, the way the suspense gets unfolded, the way we move further into the story - is just captivating! I could totally connect with the heroine!

This book is definitely written for the lovers of dark romances. The topic of the book is so different!! I

Watch out, Abbi, I thought in Brady's voice. The demons are going to be coming for you.
Let them come.


This is the first book I've read by Sansa Rayne/Sasha Rich - and I found it thrilling and steamy. It has a wonderfully original plot, following the life and re-intergration of Abigail in society, after she is rescued from a cult. It's

Amount of Sex - 5/5
How explicit - 4.5/5
BDSM/fetish - 4/5
Romance - 4/5
Overall - 4/5

Good Sick is Sansa Raynes debut novel, which is a dark erotic romance. This novel touches upon some heavy subject matter including cults, BDSM, kidnapping, and more. The story line was great as well as the characters. My emotions were all over the place while Ms. Rayne took us on this journey into Abigail and Masons romance.
Abigail joined the Good Souls religious cult, lead by Brady Booker, hoping to seek

3.5 stars. I'm not going to start with an overview of the plot. I'm sure you have already read the synopsis, and know what the book is about. This author is new to me, so I didn't know what to expect. For me, this book was more of a thriller with some BDSM thrown in, rather than a dark romance. The story started off a little slow and unorganized, but as the story moved along it started to come together, and became intense and intriguing, I couldn't put it down. Abigail's story was heartbreaking. ...more

This book intrigued me so much. A girl in a cult with a past that you can't even image. I was all in. I loved this book. It kept me guessing then second guessing myself through the entire thing. Poor Abigail has been through it having just been taken out of Good Soul's. Donations keep her living in the city and she sees a therapist to help her adjust to her new life. Abigail however is angry and hurt and knows she is missing something in her life. After all she never ascended. Every believer in ...more

THIS WASN'T SICK IN THE LEAST....AT LEAST NOT IN THE DEPRAVED WAY. DEPENDS ON HOW YOU LOOK AT IT. IF YOU CONSIDER PEOPLE WHO ENJOY BDSM, CONTROL AND HAVING GONE THROUGH SOME CULT SHIT...THEN MAYBE IT CAN BE CONSIDERED SICK.

BUT, IF LIKE ME YOU THINK IT'S A STORY THAT'S MORE THAN BORDERLINE CRAZY?

IT AIN'T. SO DON'T GET YOUR HOPES HIGH IF YOU LIKE READING DARK, EROTICA WITH TWISTED CHARACTERS AS IN PSYCHOPATHIC SOCIOPATH.

I'M NOT GOING TO DELVE INTO THE STORY, I DON'T THINK IT'S WORTH MY TIME TO

This was captivating with an original storyline! I loved going through the roller coaster of emotions with Abbi as she tried to adapt to living in the city. Kerri was perfect for Abbi to talk to, and it was more like an older sister or mother giving advice than a therapist. I wasn't sure what kind of story would come about with Mason's background, but it was perfect, and he was perfect(ly broken)! My first book by this author, and I'm looking forward to future projects from her!

I really liked reading Mason and Abigail's story. This story gives is more of a psychological thriller with some BDSM, rather than a dark read, but I enjoyed it regardless. Abigail is a runaway that falls into a cult life and when rescued, struggles to come to terms that her 6 years in that life was a lie. Mason meets Abigail with motives of his own, but falls for Abigail quickly. Their HEA romance is a whirlwind with some hot BDSM scenes.

Will definitely continue to read more from this author!

Abbi was part of a cult for 6 years. Having to adjust living a normal life style then what she is used to. Believing what she had learned from being in the cult, she believed her impure thoughts were evil and not natural. Having met Mason at a BDSM club she realizes that everything she has known was a lie.
The story has great BDSM scenes that will leave you squirming and melting the panties right off. This was a great story for a dark read.

Good read

Good Sick is a dark read that grabbed me from the beginning and held me until the very end. Abigail had just enough spunk to override the meek mouse she was supposed to be. Mason is the hot Dom that is the flawed hero you cant help but love.

Good sick selves into cults, kidnappings, and sex trafficking. It is a good story with a HEA that also gives you some VERY sexy scenes.

I cant wait to read another of Ms. Raynes books.

This story is about Abbi who just got rescued from living in a cult with a sadistic leader. She thinks her desires of pain equaling pleasure is a sin and tries to to hide it. She doesn't understand how something so complex can be so simple. However, fate would have it that she runs into Mason who just so happens to be a very dominant figure with an alternative motive. This book will grab you and make you wet in all the right places.

Ran away when she was sixteen, Abigail Lamb was befriend by a cult leader named Brady Booker, head of Good Souls. Good Souls taught Abigail to sub press her sexuality. When Good Souls was raided by the police, Abigail felt like she had no family. Her psychiatrist told Abigail that she was in a cult and it was alright to explore a relationship with a man. Abigail followed the psychiatrist advice. Abigail meets Mason outside a BDSM club. Mason is an ex-cop who is trying to correct a past mistake. ...more

Good Sick

I love Sansa Rayne's writing. Might have said this before! Good Sick had suspense, a few surprises, one in particular that I wanted to know more about, maybe in a later book.

3.5 with great thought.

This book I have a feeling is a stand-alone going into a series (will explain).
This book may cause triggers. Some abuse. Heavy on pain fetish of the BDSM variety (S/M). Some brain washing with the cult religion.
I went into this book with nothing but knowing this is a "new author" to me with a book that involves the dark romance, cult type.
So of course I was interested.
I started meeting Abigail, she has just been "rescued" from a place called the farm. It's pretty much a

I would not call this a romance. This was a weird BDSM thriller that had hints of romance but it was really BDSM sex.

It was a thriller about a woman who ends up in a cult for 6 years that gets raided and she has to re-assimilate into regular society -- in NYC of all places. She meets Mason at a club she tries to get into (her court-mandated psychologist suggests that it's time to meet new people) and it's a BDSM club. The leader of the cult (who has escaped capture) used BDSM techniques on her

This was a really interesting read! A bit different from most books, a little dark in areas, but really fascinating!

You see the main character coming out of a cult, and struggling to deal with the fact that she was brainwashed, trying to come to terms with what is true and real, and what isn't, and what she really believes.

I think this was a fantastic first book for this author, and I'll definitely keep my eyes on her to see what she publishes next!

This book was fantastic , yes there are things in this book that we may not like but truth is . Human trafficking is a real thing in life and cults so with that being said ! You really need to read this book . With Mason and Abbi there's a story there you can only understand if you read it ... with Abbi spending six years in a cult somewhere she called home to now find out everything she believed is all wrong .. Mason was determined to right a wrong but once he got to know Abbi he wanted so much ...more

Sansa Rayne, a brand new author did an awesome job on her first book. Although, not as dark as my normal reads. It was very well written, had some grammatical error and such. Overall, loved the story she brought to life with Mason and Abigail. Seeing their ups and downs throughout the story. Had a couple dark scenes in it, but very tastefully done. Definitely, give this Author a go and read her first book. I look forward to reading more of hers to come.

Sansa Raynes new book Good Sick is set in New York, and tells the story of Abigail Lamb a 24 year old woman rescued from the Good Souls cult, and Mason, a former cop who has given up everything to try to fix a past mistake at all cost.
This is my first read from Sansa and I loved the detail she put into each of her characters, the hot steamy BDSM scenes, and the overall story. Id really love to read sequel to Abigail and Mason's story or maybe a spin off of one of the other characters.
