description~WRITING - PLOT - PACE~
This book was all kinds of fifty shades of awesome. It was like watching an episode of CRIMINAL MINDS in book form. And since I am currently binge watching all 13 seasons of that series every character in this book looked like their TV counterpart (lol). The writing was phenomenal. The pace was fairly good. I will say that this felt maybe a TAD too long. It took me just over four hours to finish. The story was told through dual POVs and we jump back and forth from past

Though I never read anything by V. F. Mason before now, I still anticipated the hell out of this book. After reading the blurb, I added it to my tbr immediately. I love a story with a serial killer for a main character! Throw in a romance between said killer and a criminal psychologist, and I'm sold!

What a ride!

Esse é o primeiro livro que leio dessa autora e foi uma grande surpresa. Me manteve presa do início ao fim e não consegui parar a leitura por muito tempo! Eu simplesmente devorei.
Um suspense ótimo que me deixou louca, cheia de teorias e curiosíssima para saber o que aconteceria a seguir.

Eu gostei bastante dos personagens, todos interessantes e complexos. Mas o que me cativou mesmo foi estar dentro da mente do “psicopa

So "Psychopath's Prey was my first book by this author and I am actually blown away by how much I enjoyed this.
I really can't wait to have a good old nose into what else this author has to offer.
So I'm going to start by saying that this is one ARC I was gagging to dig into and quite often when this happens my expectations are shattered when the book doesn't quite live up to the hype I've built up in my head.
Not so here, I would even go

Having read and liked Sociopath Duet and Pakhan Duet I was looking forward to read this.

This is a book with enough suspense and thrill it will keep you engaged: a serial killer who goes the extra mile to draw the attention of a particular FBI profiler.
When Psychopath sets his eyes on Ella it is game on for him The hunter has found his prey, and nothing will stop him until he gets her.

While Ella and her colleagues desperately try to identify the serial killer before he strikes again, he is play

 Evil isn't born, it's made. 

So are the words of Psychopath, a serial killer whose modus operandi consists in kidnapping nice family men (loving heads of perfect families), torturing and killing them, then feeding their scattered body parts to the wolves. Sick, isn’t it?
But what if the men are not nice, nor loving, and they are in fact wife beaters and child abusers? What if these men rape their wives in front of their children, beating them bloody and abusing them psychologically and physically

While it wasn't badly written, I'm afraid I found this one a bit boring. I love a good take-what-he-wants Alpha-hole and love, even more so, when there's an element of crazy, but Psychopath's Prey missed the mark for me.

Short recap: Ella was definitely dealt a crappy hand, but she's strong and wants to move beyond her own tragedy to help others. I get that. She's strong, blah, blah, but when shit hits the fan (again), her you-will-never-break-me attitude gets tiresome, especially once it starts
3.5 Stars
This is one I’m not sure I can wrap my head around. I think if you suspend reality, completely, this may work for you. Not sure how someone who’s family is killed by a serial killer ends up surrounded but killers, choosing that as a profession. Anyway, I figured out who Psychopath was pretty early on but kept second guessing myself think there is no way...but yep way! It was an entertaining story if nothing else!

When I first read the blurb to this story I was so intrigued and knew I absolutely needed to read it. This is going to be a really difficult review to write as EVERYTHING is a spoiler and this story is best enjoyed when you're completely in the dark! I absolutely FLOVED this story!! I loved the heartpounding suspense and the way it consumed me. I loved Ella from the getgo. She was strong, determined and sassy and everything I love in a heroine.

It’s taken me a few days to pen my review for this story. PP is one of the most intense reads I’ve experienced in quite a while. I should have known to expect only the most messed up from Mason!

The psychopath is a very deep, dark, and disturbed guy. Well isn’t that the definition of the word? Yes I know but this dude has created another element, another level of the definition. You will understand the how’s and why’s early in the story. Meanwhile, the heroine Ella is working to overcome her past
Sissy's Romance Book Review
Psychopath's Prey by VF Mason is a really exciting dark romance. Ella is trying to find the Psychopath killer but it looks like he has her already in his sites.
This will set off some triggers and is again a very dark romance. The story line kept me on the edge of my set....a definite page turner.
Exciting Story!~

This was my first V.F Mason book and it just increased my TBR list because it was that good. It was this intricate mix of a past and present, suspense and intrigue. It was gritty and so interesting. It really felt like I was inside a whole season of Criminal Minds, with a bit more adult content and grit. I loved the story telling style and way the story unfolded. I loved that it kept me guessing and the POV it was told in.

Ella's life has not been easy. Her family was slaughter which only

Que livro intenso e diferente, nunca pensei que ia gostar de um livro com essa temática mais eu AMEI, nunca que na minha vida que eu me vi cativa e apaixonada por um psicopata, não pelas atitudes e sim pelo o que ele foi a que levou a ele a fazer isso. Tambem fui presa por um psicopata HAha.

I’m trying to figure out how to review this book and give it justice but it’s hard. This book was well thought out. Well worded, just enough to keep me on the edge of my seat, keep me thinking and wondering who the psychopath is. Ella is the main counter part of this book, along with the psychopath. We get in their heads and slowly start to understand then each for different reasons. I really enjoyed the story. I was challenged when it come to figuring out what was going on, who was doing what,

*Sighs* I really wanted to love this book but in the end, I didn't buy into their love and the serial killer thing kinda went over the top. I did enjoy the first half but just as I needed the story to tighten up and dive deeper, it went wide, leaving me feeling unsatisfied. Overall, I felt it lacked the finesse and the depth I needed to love it.

I am avid reader of dark romance and thrillers and over time have developed specific likes and dislikes, so while this didn't tick all my boxes,

Mind blown. I have no words for how utterly amazing this dark, twisted, mind blowing story is. V.F. Mason has completely wowed me. I'm still in shock how this whole tale unraveled. I'm speechless. I just can't. Do. Words. I'll try though. Imagine living in a tv show, one specific show. I swear I thought I was in an episode of Criminal Minds. Except so much better. I can't even say too much.

Wasn't really dark, in fact there was NOTHING dark until about 59%. And then it was minimal. No non-con, or dubious consent and a very small amount of violence (I couldn't even call it torture) of the h. The worst of the violence were remembered scenes of Psychopath witnessing his father beat his mother.

Not really a romance either, or at least a romance I believed. I struggled to get to 45%, I just found it quite boring and didn't really feel a connection to the characters. I did eventually with

I dove in with my Inspector Gadget senses to figure out Psychopath. I was in need of a good dark book and this did not fall short!

We are taken on a delicious ride of trying to figure out who he or she may be. The more clues we are given the more the mystery builds. These three characters have been dealt the crappiest of lives and as they are thrown together they explode. From the intrique, the doom, the gloom, the tragic, the smarts, the sex and the who are they really?! I was a psych major so t

This book popped my V.F Mason cherry. I Floved it!!

Psychopath's Prey has left me mind blown, it's everything you could ask for in a psychological thriller.
This review is going to be short and sweet as not much can be said without giving anything away.
This book is full of nerve wracking suspense.

Ella Gadot has lived through so much agony and tragedy. She finally lands her dream job at the FBI not realising it's placed her directly on the Psychopaths rader.

Psychopath's Prey is more of a suspense genre book. the mystery was in trying to figure out who Pschopath is. and I assure you you will never guess correct cause he even refers to himself in third person form ( I know, WTF). this dude is so twisted and I was a bit disturbed with his obsession with the h for purposes of inflicting bodily harm to her...(again, wtf😯). and what's even more disturbing is despite all this, the heroine was easy breezy and as cool a

This book could have been better if there wasn't so much focus on the H and h's backstories. There were several parts that added nothing to the story. Plus, some of the twists were confusing and not very good.

V.F.Mason always loved reading books and had quite a few fights with her mama over the genre she liked (romance, duh!) She studied filmmaking and thought that would feed her desire for stories, but that didn't happen.
