Oh I love a good crazy to bring in a new way of connecting with others! Dexter is beyond complicated, but so is his new mate😉 She gets him as much as he gets her... and for once both of them can obsess over things that can actual be. They’re passion for each other draws them away from their individual psychosis... and their past prey will be so thankful for the distraction of each other!

They click on a level no one else would understand... and that causes a lust that only they could handle. They

I'm pretty sure I need to seek help after reading this book because who in their right (sane) mind completely swoons over a psycho?? Yes that would be me! Dexter (you don’t have to read the Chains series first but you totally should) is the type of guy who has that off the charts type sex appeal. I was pre-warned there was no sexual activity in the book but honestly with Dexter, his whole demeanor is enough hotness for me! I’m certain I had an out of this world experience while reading because I ...more

As a fan of Shandi Boyes' books I was excited by this new release, especially as I had just finished the Bound and Perception series. This books tells the story of Dexter who we met as a stalker in the Bound series. And what a story this is. For those who have also read Nick's story in the Perception series this story has an unexpected twist that you will love.
This is completely different to Shandi's other books, yet it had me on the edge of my seat, unable to put it down.

Inside the mind of the dark and dangerous Dexter. We finally see what makes him tick. His childhood is like a major mindfuck. He becomes friends with someone that also has a connection to Reckless. Major shocker!!! This is a very dark romance that has a lot of suspense, twist and turns. The ending will blindside you. I just wish the story would continue on. It leaves you with several new unanswered questions, but still worth reading.

Dexter is planning his revenge and escape from a mental asylum

While reading this book all I could think was holy shitballs Batman! This book has so many twists and turns that you will feel like you’re finding your way out of a maze. The storyline follows closely to Dexter and you can truly see the genius side of his mind at work as well as his psychopathic side. There are moments you feel sorry for Dexter and moments where you stop yourself and think that there’s no way you could feel sorry for someone who is so broken in their own mind. If you love dark t ...more

This book can be read as a standalone story. This dark twisted romance develops as two seamlessly different characters meet and interconnect in the mental asylum. Dexter finds himself captivated by Claudia who he has never heard speak, although that doesn't seem to stop his attraction to her with her innocence radiating through her, although one monster can always recognize another. Even without her words Dexter finds himself wanting to claim and protect her from the guards. Dexter doesn't prote ...more

Dexter is another Masterpiece by Shandi Boyes.

We originally met Dexter in Marcus and Cleo's story 'Bound'.
We thought we knew what he was like but nothing prepared me for the path this Story took.

It's Dark, Disturbing and Intriguing. It will have you on the edge of your seat. I just couldn't put it down!!!!

I want to say so much more, but I'm not spoiling it for you.

Trust me when I say you will not regret reading this!!! 😱

A Definite Must Read!!!

It’s truly not what you’re expecting.I have to say I loved it then I’m biased because I love all her books. I would recommend reading the book that come before this one because you get a better grasp of what’s going on. You don’t need to but they’re probably better to have read.

This book is not a genre i normally read but i had to read Dexter' s story since he was part of the Bound series. This book is definitely twisted and a whole lot of screwed up but I loved it. It all comes together in the end.
I just might have to go back and read Player of Life and Enigma now. Great book.

Expect the unexpected when Dexter gets to tell his side as we embark on a ride you won’t see coming!

WARNING: Story may make you want to throw your kindle!

We were introduced to Dexter in the BOUND SERIES (Cleo and Marcus)
From there, we started to get to know Dexter and the sick mind games he plays. But that was nothing compared to what is in store for you when you read this book!

Dexter will intrigue you and capture your mind as he takes you on an adventure into the dark side that is his life!!

This is unlike any other Shandi Boyes book. The love is dark, twisted and depraved as love between two insane people can only be and yet it is just as deep and lasting as any normal love. After having read about Dexter and Megan/Claudia in previous books and while it is not necessary to have read them, this story gives a greater insight to some of their motivation. This story also gives a basis for the mental illness of these two characters and towards the end the reader has an empathy for them ...more

Incomparably and Ingeniously well written book!
Shandi has written a very different book this time. I have no idea how she does it except she must be brilliant! It was definitely a thriller and I found myself laying the book down to take a break and instantly picking it back up. Holding my breath constantly because I was nervous about what was going to happen. It was an excellently written story. She masterfully created the characters for this story line perfectly. I highly recommend it.

Psycho was not what I expected, it was so much better. You get a peek inside of the minds of two very disturbed individuals in this book. We had already met Dexter in the Bound series but this really gives you the motivation behind his actions. Be ready for darkness, bloodshed, and a sexy psychopath. This book is not the author's normal but she really rocked it! ...more

There was a lot that I feel should have been added and I’m pretty disappointed in the ending. It was rushed and lacked details.
This could have been a great book. It felt incomplete. It didn't end with a cliffhanger so I was disappointed because not much is really resolved. If it's ever rewritten I would give it another read. ...more

WOW!!! This is not going to be many people's cup of tea. It is twisted, sick, manipulative, depraved, shocking and emotionally raw. Dexter is a sick man and he uses he sick genius and sucks Claudia into his world. This is not a "love" story. I am not sure I would even call it a romance except for the fact that Dexter is captivated and obsessed with the equally sick and twisted Claudia. This is a dark suspense novel that is a twisted, bent mind trip that will not be shaken off easily. There are n ...more

I gave it a good go, got to 30% but then I found my eyes drooping and my mind wandering to the mundane things like needing to go do the washing up.
Maybe it's because I haven't read the other books in the series?
Maybe it's because I am dark romance whore and this is Ms Boyes first time writing such dark themes?
I don't know what it was but it just didn't grasp my attention in the way I hoped. I felt like I was missing important information, initially I thought Marcus was Dexter's alter ego, then I

Psycho is a psychological thriller that I didn’t know if was going to like, but I really enjoyed this book.We met Dexter in the series called Chains . Even though this book is a standalone I would suggest you read Chains, it will answer a lot of questions . Dexter is a sick and twisted individual that you can’t help but like. When he meets Megan you begin to see a change in him, even though she is just as sick as he is.

I loved this book especially the twist at the end. I hope this Shandi keeps

This is book 5 in a series, but I haven’t read any of the other books in this series and I was still able to follow and enjoy this book. Now this is an amazing story, it’s dark, very very dark with lots of twists, turns and emotions. The two main characters make a connection that transcends verbal communication, it’s as if they are truly meant to be together. Totally awesome book and a must read if you love dark romance thrillers! I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am volunta ...more

Wow, what a ride!!!

This is a very twisted psychotic romance. Dexter is all kinds of messed up and looking for revenge. Megan is just a means to an end and a pawn in his chess game. Or so he thinks, what happens when a Psycho meets his match in a demure, innocent looking Schizophrenic. This story happens that's what and what a story it is. It's exciting, messed up, psychotic, with all kinds of dark twists and turns. Absolutely loved this story and I highly recommend it!!!
