Post’s Author Opinion:
Note: This is a personal opinion, it does not reflect YaoiOtaku’s official position towards the novel.
It was my first time reading Louise Collins’ book. The title and the cover had caught my interest first and I had expectation for some dark & twisted romance. Although I found later it was less dark and not that twisted, still I really enjoyed the story.
The Psychopath had Zane Black as the most intriguing character here. A murderer who was dangerous yet fascinating. A genius who could read people and manipulate them. Arrogant and shameless yet so charming; he was the most favorite character.
For the romance part, The Psychopath had some USTs moments between the MC and Zane. I could say it was slow burn, although these two men also had felt their instant attraction the first time they met. But I absolutely liked how the kiss started at around 57% of the book and the steamy scenes followed much, much later. 😉
Overall, The Psychopath was a brilliant read, highly recommended. And I think I’m gonna read more books by Louise Collins after this.
