one of them calls to me, draws me in and makes me fall in love.
I just happen to destroy the things that I love.”
That is a quote from Jude, our gorgeous psychopath or sociopath, I'm not quite sure which he is just yet. He lures in his victims, mostly prostitutes, and then has his way with them while he kills them. That's how he gets off... His urges to kill are always there, in the back of his mind, but he can sometimes control the urges for periods of time.
Along comes a beautiful waitress, Ronnie, he meets by chance and he is immediately taken by her. He feels things for her he's never felt before. Strangely, he doesn't have the urge to kill her like he does with all of the rest, just the opposite actually. He has the urge to love and protect her....OWN her.
He becomes obsessed with her as he has come to the notion that she can somehow "cure" him of his desire to kill. He wants a "normal" life for himself, for his parents and I assume so he doesn't get caught. But can he give up the urges to kill? Can he keep her without hurting her?
I very LOVED this book! It was short but it was long enough to satisfy you. Jaden and Lily kicked some a** with this book. I was hooked from page one and all throughout the book. Each chapter made you want more, the characters kept you guessing and suspense was enough to kill... I was disappointed when I turned the page and realized that it was over! I can't wait to devour the next volume. 4.5 Rockin' stars
I can't wait to get the next book. Jude has me all twisted up. He my be "crazy" but damn if he didn't capture me. He is so difficult to understand yet he's not. I know that doesn't make since but just read the book and you will understand.
Poor Ronnie, she has no idea what's ahead of her. I'm scared for her and I wanna be her. Lol. I just want a piece of Jude. The man totally floats MY crazy boat. (I'm odd, I know)
Ok, I'm going to end my review here. I really want to go into details about Jude and his twisted ways but I'm not one for spoilers so I'm going to stop while I'm ahead.
To all my fellow dark lovers.....
Go Read This Book, Now! :-)(less)
I liked this first volume of Serial well enough, not really loved it, because it was a little too short for me to feel a real connection to all the characters just yet, but hopefully they will grow on me as we get deeper.
Ronnie was probably the most fleshed out character and the one I felt the most empathy for (even the slew of murdered hookers didn't get my emotions going) and Jude...well that dude is one you want to hate but I couldn't really...not YET because I think there has to be something else deeper we haven't been told, that might explain why he is the way he is.
I think we were introduced to so many people in this first book that it serves more of an introduction and a taste of things to come.
I really can't wait to see what will happen once "Pet" finds out what's really going on and how long Jude will be able to evade the two FBI/lovers who are hot on his trail (and who themselves have a taste for a bit of kink!).
If you like the dark and sick world of serial killers and what makes them "tick"...you'll love this one!
**** 4 **** "sexy, edgy, thrilling" stars
Some people would assume that his newfound love would cease his killing streak, but they couldn't be more mistaken. He's desperately trying to rein in his emotions. He loves Ronnie (a.k.a Pet). He wants to make her happy, to care for her, and make her feel loved, but he also wants to kill her.
Jude believes that by killing someone he is able to immortalize their beauty forever. He saves them from growing old and ill. He wants to immortalize Pet, but he loves her too much to lose control. Therefore, the women roaming the streets of the Northwest are in danger.
Ronnie is being held in a room where she has no contact with the outside world. Jude is the only person she is allowed to socialize with. She likes Jude. He's her savior. Her hero. But Ronnie can't help but have an inkling that something just isn't right about him... It seems unfair to him that she should doubt him. He clothes her, he feeds her, and protects her so she should trust him. Right?
Agent Blake believed he had begun to understand CK, but a sudden increase in killings has him wondering what could have caused such a drastic change in the serial killer's MO.
He isn't worried though, because his equally brilliant mind sees this as his chance to finally catch the elusive murderer...
This story just keeps getting better and better! We get to see a closer look into the lives of Jude, Ronnie and Agent Blake. If you're anything like me you will find yourself caught between loving and hating this imperfect trio.
Jude's crimes begin to increase in quantity and in violence. His emotions may be getting the best of him, but he hasn't lost complete control yet. He still keeps his wits about him and is intent on avoiding capture.
I basically inhaled this addition to the series. I was so enraptured by this brilliant yet twisted book that my eyes were glued to the screen from beginning to end. I want so badly to go into more detail, but I'd rather not ruin anything for you. I highly recommend giving this series a try!
