Review: Sociopaths

SociopathsSociopaths by Keiko Alvarez

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



  The Romance Review


Stab me in the heart or slit my wrist, it would hurt less and be less of a torture.  Sociopaths is my favourite story by talented Ms. Alvarez to date.  Tyler Mann is a complete anti-hero.  He is a womanizer used to taking women for granted.  Women are there for one purpose - satisfying his sexual needs.  There are many clichés to describe this story.  Karma is a bitch.  What goes around comes around.

This story is predictable in that Tyler's past behaviour catches up to him.  He finds the woman of his dreams and finally wants to settle down.  Due to the woman's own bad history, she refuses to stay with him.  Insert another cliché - cutting off one's noses to spite oneself.  Good lord have mercy, I feel bad for Tyler even though he's been a bad guy.  Ms. Alvarez does a lovely job of showing Tyler and his emotions.  The turmoil he feels is made worse when he experiences his own epiphany.

The sex in this book is as always, delicious.  Tyler is a slut and he slips it in so well.  There are women of all types getting down with him.  The sex scenes are erotic and spank bank worthy.  They are a bit like Tyler's women.  Read it, use it and forget about it.  What sticks with me is Tyler's struggle at the end.  The bittersweet ending may make some readers feel vindicated.  Others like me will feel a sense of loss and yearning.  Sometimes meaningless sex no matter how physically pleasurable will leave a person feeling empty.  Ms. Alvarez does another bang up job in creating a story where there a reader is surprisingly attached to a rather despicable character.  Recommended for sex fiends who may be wondering why one night stands are no longer satisfying.
