Start your review of The Risk (Mindf*ck, #1)
Holy hell! This book was fantastic! I had never heard of S. T. Abby before now, but she has blown me away with this book. This is one twisted and fascinating story. I will be one-clicking her releases from this point forward.

The first in a series of five serials, 'The Risk' was suspenseful and utterly addicting. I could not put this super short book down. Once you've finished the first one, you're going to want to delve into the next book immediately. Luckily, the entire series has been


This is so fucked up and twisted.
And so good.
The storyline is phenomenal.

And I'm going straight to Hell for loving it so much.

What is wrong with me?

I can't believe I loved it so much.
I can't believe I'm rooting for a serial killer.
I can't believe I enjoyed the actual torture and kills.

On to the next one!

“Hush little baby, don’t say a word. Momma’s gonna buy you a mocking bird. And if that mocking bird don’t sing, Momma’s gonna buy you a diamond ring.”

This 5-book series has to be the best sinister-suspense I've read in a long while. Guys, please do not miss this.

Superb writing, crisp plot, amazing heroine! Brilliant! The first book is free on Amazon, I guarantee you'll one-click the heck out of the remaining serials.

What would you do if you were in the middle of your revenge killing spree?? Why you would start dating an FBI agent that specialises in profiling and catching serial killers of course, well duh!

Lana Myers life is fucked messed up but it's hard not to be on her side, she is determined to finish these acts of vengeance and not just for herself. She is a badass, I love her attitude and her sarcastic humour.

MY REVIEW can also be found on my blog:

‘THE RISK' is the first book in S.T. Abby’s ’Mindf#ck’ series. New to me Author, spoken in ‘Dual perspectives’ In this we meet Lana and Logan Bennett

Lana is the girl that was left for dead, that should've stayed dead but that's not how this story goes, like a Phoenix rising she’s after revenge, working down a long list of names that will not know what’s coming for them.

I can tell that I'm going to adore this series already! My good friend, Karla, recommended it to me a while ago, but I haven't been able to squeeze it in until now. I'm so happy that I finally did, because I fucking loved it! I hope to come back with more of a review, but for now, I'll leave you with something short and sweet.

Read it!! This shit is good!!

This series has some amazing reviews from some of my good friends and fellow readers in goodreads.
And this was the only thing that I knew about it, before I started it.

And then I did started it. And wow! Totally mind-blowing!

The story is built in small pieces like a puzzle:

Thank god there's no waiting to get to the next book....... that ending though.....

Okay, I've loved a lot of dark reads, but this one, I think this series might just top the list.

I'm falling for Logan Bennett, but mostly my heart hurts at how hurt he is gonna be when this all comes out. I am so looking forward to how this plays out. He is hot, he is sin and pleasure wrapped in a package

Told in dual POV, 1st person, it’s the first installment in the "Mindf*ck" series and ends with a cliffhanger. I liked the writing but the plot wasn’t as mindf*ck as I expected! Yes, it was dark but I needed something more, I got a bit bored. I liked both MCs but liked Logan a bit more. Considering all the good reviews it was just me (lately I wasn't in a good mood really). Overall, I liked it and hope you enjoy it as well!
Thanks so much, dear Karla for

THE RISK was a book that I fully expected to hate, so you can imagine my surprise when it actually ended up being a cat-and-mouse game of awesomeness. Lana is a female serial killer who's systematically dismembering and murdering the dudes who abused her when she was young. Logan is an FBI agent who specializes in bringing killers like her to justice. The two of them are dating, and Lana knows exactly who and what he is. Logan does not,

From the author: “I know this shit is fucked up, so don’t bother writing to tell me I’m twisted in the head”.

From me: Yep. You got that right. You totally own it.

Logan Bennett - F.B.I.
Lana Myers - Serial Killer

Never in the history of book titles has their EVER been a more appropriate book title.
This is the best, most appropriate, book title in the history of ever.
Tomorrow I’m cancelling everything. I need to read book 2

4.5 stars. This is a good beginning to this series. The author is slowly peeling back layers of each character, especially Lana. The ending was an oh shit moment. Actually a couple of them. On to book 2.
The heroine is a serial killer and the hero is FBI agent!
How about that?

This series could not have been titled any better! Because my mind is completely blown!

As I read along having bits and pieces of Lana’s life laid out it is beyond riveting. This heroine is one of the strongest I’ve ever read. Her level of intelligence, strength, patience, incredibly well written. Stayed on the edge of my seat.

Logan is the light to Lana’s dark. It is clear his strengths are the same as hers and there will come a point where they will be rivals.

This is such an

Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a persistent one. Albert Einstein said that. My father always quoted Einstein as a way of explaining life when we struggled to understand it. I remember him quoting me that when our lives fell apart......
loved all the Einstein quotes

His eyes find mine, and he really does seem hopeful. He’s right. I do the same thing. But for completely different reasons. He serves justice the best he can. I serve revenge in the way it needs to
~~~ 5 "WOW" stars~~~

Well butter my butt and call me a biscuit!

I had this book on my Kindle for a month now and boy, I wish I had read it sooner. The suspense was almost like watching a movie.

We have Logan this FBI hottie, who's an excellent profiler and he's really good at catching serial killers. He's smart, sweet and a good guy through and through.

He's married to his job until he stumbles upon
Lana, our heroine. He's immediately taken by her and thinks she just might be perfect for him.

This book is EVERYTHING !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wow wow wow wow wow.

This book is the first release by ST Abby and man oh man. She knocked my socks off.
The storyline in this is like nothing I have read before why you ask?
Well, the "villain" I use that term loosely is a woman for once. How badass is that. This book is dark and has a lot of shock throughout the storyline. I couldn't help but get completely consumed by it.

5 'paint it red' stars

I didn't know exactly what to expect...
I mean FBI agent and serial killer in romantic relationship sounds kind of weird and creepy.
But it's great, it's excellent, it makes sense. This book is crazy big time!!!

And don't get me wrong, I'm not some secret fan of serial killers, but I agree with Lana - Go get them, girl, and make those bastards scream!

I have to admit that I misjudged this series based on the cover. This is not another dark romance story. It is dark, but it is revenge dark. Lana has had an experience in her past that made her seeking for revenge. She bumps into Logan and tries to be "a normal girl" for a change.
But this is just the beginning....

Review at the end of the series!

Whyyyyyyyyyy did I start this series at 10:30 pm?!!! Whyyyyyyyyyyy??!! That cliffhanger sucker punched me omg no sleep tonight! Maybe I can buy my bosses a copy so they'll understand.... all for now on to the next
Bex (Beckie Bookworm)

Loving this one so much it was ever so intriguing with such a dark messed up tale to impart.
on the surface here we have Lana just an ordinary woman, but underneath that unassuming persona and hidden from sight is a girl with deep secrets and a penchant for vengeance against knows who have done her and her loved ones past harm.
When her agenda collides with FBI profiler Logan its the start of there journey together.
One that is at total odds with each other's personal goals.

I just lost my whole review so I'm gonna do my best to just shoot from the hip. Sometimes I struggle between giving a book 4 stars or just that one extra to make it a 5 star. If GR would let me I'd start out at 10 with this one and keep them coming. I have NEVER in my life gulped a book down so fast and with such hunger. And although I'm good with suspending disbelief and knowing in the back of my head a book is fictional, with this one, I really think I lost my whole moral compass. I mean it's ...more
