Rafe's Reviews - Love him or hate him, Rafe is what he is!

Some reviews for Sociopath? I included the good, the bad and the ugly! Sociopath is extremely explicit and deals with taboo subject matter so I'm not surprised that some readers would be offended although you'd think posting a warning would give people a clue about what they might find inside! Anyway, here are the reviews. Make of them what you will!

5.0 out of 5 stars Deeply Disturbing Look Into Sociopathic BehaviorFebruary 9, 2012

This review is from: Sociopath? (Adventures of Rafe Vincennes) (Kindle Edition)
No-one will be ambivalent about this book. Many will start the first chapter, find the first disturbing scene, and stop reading. Then they may fuss and rant about "how could any author write that?" Don't stop reading. Keep reading. Keep reading to get inside the head of one of the cruelest, most sociopathic characters you will ever encounter. Keep reading to feel what he feels, when he feels it, and why he feels it. This book is written by someone who has "been there and done that." Her background in law enforcement has given her the insights into these types of sociopathic individuals. Her background in non-fiction brings a crisp, efficient style to the book. There are some scenes in the book (e.g., the bar fight scene, Rafe's first fast drive in his new car) where you are transported into the scene and into the psyche of Rafe Vincennes. I couldn't put this book down, even though morals or society or someone in the back of my head was telling me that the subject matter was verboten. Warning there is graphic sexual content in this book and this book is certainly not for anyone under the age of 21, or for anyone who is easily offended. However, if you can see the abundant and graphic sex for what it is, the author's vehicle for demonstrating Rafe's inability to connect on a spiritual or psychological level, then you may just be able to hitch on for a fast paced bumpy ride. I am anxiously awaiting the second book in this series.

1.0 out of 5 stars Please Don't Waste Your Money. The Hero is a Sicko!!,March 2, 2012
This review is from: Sociopath? (Adventures of Rafe Vincennes) (Kindle Edition)
"He laid claim to her from the day she came home from the hospital."(1)
Rafe Vincennes was only three when he supposedly laid claim to our heroine Lane. He started having sex with her when she was 7 years old while he was 10 years old and treats her like yesterday's trash...seriously this is my 1st review and...I HATED this book so much words cannot express how I feel.

I love erotic romance like Kristen Ashley or Karen Marie Moning but this book was terrible and SICK! Even in EL James Grey Series, the hero is sexy and a little sadistic but Rafe shows no redemption, no remorse,he sleeps around all the time, and *whispers* he is not even that good looking.

The Heroine is even worse. She's wanders around like some mindless doll...she's just whimpering all the time and Rafe uses her and even announces to her that she should be with the other guy in this novel but they could still get it on.

Dont waste the money you've worked for on this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars OutstandingFebruary 19, 2012

This review is from: Sociopath? (Adventures of Rafe Vincennes) (Kindle Edition)
Rafe is a live-on-the-edge type of person who cannot get enough of pretty much anything. However, he always gets exactly what he wants. The title of this book is fitting and describes the read to a "T". There is obscene material written upon the pages, however, after getting through the deplorable activities of the main character it is easy to see that a full picture of Rafe's "adventures" only make you understand him more. It is almost a love-hate relationship because Rafe seems likeable in one scene and extremely vile in the next. He draws you in and leaves you only wanting more because you know that he will become loveable once again only to turn you away! This is a must read for those who are constantly trying to figure out the human mind and why we act the way we do. Rafe's life comes full circle in this book as he grows from a small child into his chosen career. I can only hope there are additional books to the series to complete Rafe's life.

5.0 out of 5 stars RafeFebruary 12, 2012
This review is from: Sociopath? (Adventures of Rafe Vincennes) (Kindle Edition)
This is an Ice Prince with a panther's stealth for conquest. Born to great wealth, Rafe was a feral child, raised amongst the advantages of life virtually by his own hand. With a younger sister, Lane, left only to his care and guidance. The relationship that emerges is out of limits to anyone's understanding but their own. A race car prodigy, playing lead guitar and confounding the Ivy League with his classroom genius and sports brilliance, Rafe's outside interests at this time in his life involve only the sexual take down skills of a tested jungle cat. Is he a sociopath or just the result of a brilliant mind raised on the open range of a forgotten nursery lair in a sprawling estate? A great read about a truly driven character, right or wrong, who does what he desires, always.
