    Holy hell! This book was fantastic! I had never heard of S. T. Abby before now, but she has blown me away with this book. This is one twisted and fascinating story. I will be one-clicking her releases from this point forward. The first in a series of five serials, 'The Risk' was suspenseful and utterly addicting. I could not put this super short book down. Once you've finished the first one, you're going to want to delve into the next book immediately. Luckily, the entire series has been released Holy hell! This book was fantastic! I had never heard of S. T. Abby before now, but she has blown me away with this book. This is one twisted and fascinating story. I will be one-clicking her releases from this point forward. The first in a series of five serials, 'The Risk' was suspenseful and utterly addicting. I could not put this super short book down. Once you've finished the first one, you're going to want to delve into the next book immediately. Luckily, the entire series has been released, so you don't have to live with the anxious anticipation for long. Logan Bennett is a very successful FBI criminal profiler. His team is the FBI's "dream team" of sorts. They get assigned the toughest cases, tracking down and capturing the country's worst murderers. He is the quintessential "good guy" and a real-life hero. Lana Myers is his polar opposite. Her life experiences have taught her that good does not always prevail. She is no longer a young girl with illusions of a criminal justice system that is fair and just. She knows all to well that there is true evil in this world. She has no qualms about handing out her own special brand of justice to those that she deems deserving of punishment. I can't say that I disagreed either. Lana is quite possibly one of my favorite leading female characters ever...and she's a serial killer! When Logan and Lana cross paths, sparks fly immediately. One chance meeting at a coffee shop sets a chain of events in motion that will change the lives of these two forever. I was completely glued to this story. I knew that things were bound to get really ugly, but I couldn't tear myself away. Lana knows that the last thing she should ever do is pursue a romantic relationship with an FBI profiler. However, she just can't deny herself the happiness that she feels with Logan. For his part, Logan is completely clueless about Lana's true identity or what she does when she's away from him. He has no idea that the serial killer he's been hunting is actually warming his bed at night. From start to finish, I could not pull myself away from this story. Despite being polar opposites, S. T. Abby managed to make both Logan and Lana characters that were endearing. I loved them both, even as I feared the heartache that I know has to be looming in the distance. This story was dark, twisted and thrilling. This first serial ended with a big cliffhanger, that had me jumping into the next one immediately. I was blown away by this story. If you're a fan of dark, suspenseful stories that will keep you on the edge of your seat the whole time, then you need to read this series. The first book is free, so you're not losing anything if you don't like it. If you're like me, you won't even want to come up for air until you've read all five. This series was phenomenal!

    LANA MYERS is my new HERO. She is such a strong girl that I couldn’t help but admire her. She is a survivor. A survivor of rape. And not a rape by one person but by 12 people! Yes 12 sick fucks raped her and her brother over and over all night. Tortured them, cut them, beat them and did all the unimaginable things to them and in the end, they were left to die, bleeding in the streets of the town... How do you survive that? How do you survive that without losing your soul? ******************************* LANA MYERS is my new HERO. She is such a strong girl that I couldn’t help but admire her. She is a survivor. A survivor of rape. And not a rape by one person but by 12 people! Yes 12 sick fucks raped her and her brother over and over all night. Tortured them, cut them, beat them and did all the unimaginable things to them and in the end, they were left to die, bleeding in the streets of the town... How do you survive that? How do you survive that without losing your soul? ********************************************* It took Lana Myers years and years to heal and become the fierce girl that she is now. And now she is ready to collect the debts… One by one. In exactly the same painful ways that they did. She has a long list. Not just 12 people… but all the helpers. And the ones who stayed silent. And also the ones who took their father away from them by putting a blame on him – a crime that he never committed. As I said, she has a long list! ********************************************* While going through her list with the help of her best friend Jake, who is a technology genius, Lana meets a man – Logan. He is an FBI agent. And he is the one who is working on the serial killer case, trying to find the murderer who is torturing men and killing them in unspeakable ways. Lana is feeling love for the first time in years and she cannot get away. She immerses herself in the pleasure and happiness Logan gives her, all the while knowing that he is a good person and will never be OK with what she is doing. Her love for Logan grounded her in a way. He brought out the human side of her, which was necessary between all those killings so that she didn't lose her soul totally. ********************************************* All 5 books are perfect, except for a few grammar/editing mistakes. But never mind them, these books are awesome anyways. ********************************************* All 5 of them are told in dual point of view but one book had a third person’s point of view. ********************************************* They are all short, around 100 pages. Only the last book is 160 pages. ********************************************* These books are like an addiction. Once you start, you cannot drop them. I read them all breathless. They are so good, indeed. And it was refreshing to see the sick rapists are punished in delicious ways. Normally, I try to avoid books that contain rape as it is too painful to read them unless they are recommended strongly by people who know me well. In this case, my dear friend Sanzida insisted that I should read this series and she said they were amazing. I was a coward for a long time and she had to remind me more than a few times that I should pick up some courage and read them. She knows me - she knows me so well – otherwise, she would never have insisted about a book where a girl was brutally violated if she weren't so sure I would love them. So special thanks to my dear friend… I loved them lots! And I love you lots :) ********************************************* The writer of these books is using the pen name S.T. Abby. She is the same writer who also uses the pen name C.M. Owens. The pen name S.T. Abby fits these books very well as it reads “stabby” and Lana is definitely a stabby heroine :) I also would like to thank the writer for printing the past memories all in italics. In this way, if you want to skip the too painful parts, you can. Personally, I surprised myself and read them all. Knowing she is also torturing them now helped me to be able to read those parts. ********************************************* I know these books are hard to read but believe me it is worth the pain, they are amazing. She doesn’t only kill her rapists – the mindf*ckery in it is genius and so very delicious. I enjoyed every minute of it. If you can stomach some pain, then the reward is good. These books are so many things at the same time: painful, sad, funny, entertaining, emotional, hot, brutal, scary, twisted and much more. ********************************************* If you want justice no matter what and if you are OK with someone handling the justice herself where justice didn’t work in normal ways, then read them. See how one tiny girl rains down vengeance for herself and her family. The side characters in the book are very well portrayed, too. They each contribute to the story a lot. I loved Hadley and Jake fiercely. I also loved Leonard. I can say I loved the hero Logan too although I was pissed at him for a while for how he treated our girl but my real hero in this book is LANA MYERS. ********************************************* RATING of all 5 books: I am giving all books in this series 5 stars but I am deducting 0,5 point from the last book because of its ending. I didn’t like the Epilogue and how it ended. Don’t worry, there is a happy end but there is also something I didn’t like and personally I believe that it was not necessary. Everything she did up to that moment was justified in my eyes because it was her personal revenge but I cannot tell the same for the things mentioned in the Epilogue. I cannot say more. You’ll see yourself if you read them and decide if you like it or not. I didn't - but still, I think these books are amazing and I cannot give them anything but 5. ********************************************* Here are some QUOTES from them all… BOOK 1: THE RISK - 5 stars I can’t help but wonder how things might have been if my past hadn’t been derailed and cluster-fucked to hell and back. I think he would have really liked the old me. I was clever, funny, quick-witted, and slightly dramatic. I also cried if I accidentally killed a bug. Now… Now I’m a 5’4 package of vengeance that no one sees coming. BOOK 2: SIDETRACKED - 5 stars “No one cared. No one wanted to listen. No one wanted to be bothered with something so horribly, inconceivably evil. They wanted to pretend it just didn’t exist.” *** I’m his girlfriend. I have a boyfriend. This isn’t news, but it’s still making me gush like a thirteen-year-old who is hovering over the phone. I don’t even think about the fact he’s the guy trying to catch the killer I moonlight as. BOOK 3: SCARLET ANGEL - 5 stars To defeat a monster, you have to be twice as monstrous. To love a monster, you have to share your soul. If you prick us, do we not bleed? If you tickle us, do we not laugh? If you poison us, do we not die? And if you wrong us, shall we not revenge? -William Shakespeare Shakespeare was one of the few philosophers who believed in revenge. Then again, he was a romantic. Romantics always believe in revenge, because romantics love harder, suffer loss more painfully, and hold onto a grudge that has shattered their hearts. BOOK 4: ALL THE LIES - 5 stars Every man is guilty of all the good he did not do. -Voltaire *** I grow quiet, thinking of all the contradictions this unsub has left us with. It all fits, and none of it fits at the same time. *** As of this morning, they no longer fear the sheriff. Now they fear the one person who can break the untouchable. They belong to me now. The flock have a new shepherd to fear. Baa, bitches. Jake was right. Logan never would have chosen me. He just proved it. He didn’t even ask. He didn’t even care. *** The worst thing he could do is what he’s doing now. Silencing me. It was the worst part of it all. Being silenced, because no one wanted to hear. Now the one person I’ve opened myself up enough to love is silencing me. BOOK 5 - PAINT IT ALL RED – 4.5 stars rounded up to 5 because I am deducting 0.5 point for how it ended in the Epilogue. My mind feels like it’s gone through a mind-fuck blender. Up is down. Right is left. Good is bad. *** “We’re claiming this town now. For your sins, you shall repent. For your past, you shall endure the nightmares you caused. And for your eyes that you closed so willingly, now you shall see.” *** Any demon is capable of cruelty, but only an angel is majestic enough to rain down vengeance for the innocent. *** * You can follow my instagram page from here

She is a badass, I love her attitude and her sarcastic humour. Logan is awesome, hot, sweet and has no idea what or who he is dating but he does know he can't give her up. Totally original plot and I LOVED it. The characters are strong, realistic and great, it was fantastically written, suspense filled and captivating. I do have a hate 'thing' for serials but even that did not detract on my enjoyment of this book. It was like watching and episode of criminal minds with some hot romance chucked in and I'm looking forward to reading the next one.

But who knows, we only got glimpses of what happened in her past. Maybe there was something more sinister going on that’ll be revealed in the next books. “He’s killed numerous people the same way with the same methodology and reasoning . . . so technically he’s a serial killer too. It’s logically truthful. Other than wearing a badge to find it legally justifiable, we’re the same.” All I know is the author was a genius cause this story was brilliant and the writing was excellent. There was a tinge of humor and a splash of adorable yet sexy romance that—despite the goriness of the situation, my occasional gagging sound and shrieking of horror—made me smile like a loon. “I drop back down to my seat, wondering how planning out a brutal murder is easier than dating.” Logan was wayyy off his game when it comes to ‘profiling’ Lana. It was honestly quite amusing, especially since we knew just how murderous and badass Lana could be when she was in action. The ending had me frantic to reach for book two, but I have to write this. So let’s cut this short! Recommended to me by: Bee & Monique

When two opposites attract you know it’s like a train wreck ready to happen, that sit on the edge of your seat feeling erupts in you, and erupted it did when I reached that cliffy!! Luckily for me I had the next book to jump onto, unlucky for others that had to wait, because that ending was brutal!! The last person Lana expected to form a relationship with would be an FBI agent which is exactly what Logan is. Holds head in shame This book was recommended to me time and time again BUT then I was so stuck under arcs and I was like a beached whale so I'm slowing down this year and reading ones that I've one clicked, recommendations, and new authors to me.. This falls under all three. My expectations: I'm hoping it's dark, f#ckedup, sick, gritty, unleash everything that's makes most run for the hills!! At least it only took me 2 years to read this lol Because of the men who robbed her innocence at the age of sixteen she was left alone in the world. Now those men are getting hunted down, one by one, tortured, killed slowly.. This is what I'm talking about the heroine was kickass, god what wasn't there to love about her, take no prisoners, kill those f#ckers slowly, cut those c#cks off, cover the room in blood, god f#ck me dead what wasn't there to love about this book!! This was my kind of book, it engaged me as soon as I started it, the ice queen and the detective. My expectations were ticked off one by one. This brought back my love for reading!! I went in blind, I went in expecting the worst but hoping for the best, I came out with so much love for this book, an unknown author to me has gotten a new stalker!! Now I'm off to jump on the next book!! * Teaser used is off the authors fb page *

Revenge is a dish best served cold… Now that I agree with. It means they forget you’re coming for them, and their screams sound so much prettier when the time finally comes. I loved this series when I first read it and I think I'm gonna love it even more reading it again. Lana is my hero 😍 I have two kills to plan, a boyfriend to see, and a best friend to un-piss off. And not in that order. I’m just the typical American woman. Or is it the typical American Psycho?

And this was the only thing that I knew about it, before I started it. And then I did started it. And wow! Totally mind-blowing! The story is built in small pieces like a puzzle: 1. A serial killer that attacks lonely, handsome, young, successful males. After they are held prisoners in their houses for a certain amount of time from 3 to 7 days each, they die with horrible deaths. They have certain parts of their anatomy cut and the walls of their house paint red with their blood. They are alive for the majority of the torturing, but they are not raped. 2. An FBI detective who is a profile analyzer with many successes in his job. The serial killers are his best cases. And he always catches the killer and many victims-to-be are saved. Very clever guy. He loves to super-analyze everything…..until one day he stops using his brain after he meets a girl. 3. A girl with a fake name, fake face and fake past. Many secrets mostly tragic. She is really sassy and funny, but she always keeps her distance…until one day she stops being careful after she meets a boy. 4. An event that happened 10 years before that has lead to the events of this book and the readers right away suspect what it is about. Surprisingly, there is romance in this book although it is full of gory details and suspense. The mystery is not unveiled from the first book and there is a cliffhanger in the end. If you like CSI and Dexter, I totally recommend this series.

    4 Stars Overall Opinion: This was a great start to the series. It actually reminds me of the Deviant series that I read a long time ago with regards to it being the short serials with fast pacing. I think I actually prefer this type of series versus the duet or trilogy where you feel it being stretched out for the sake of multiple books. Love the Dexter-esc vibes going on and their connection has been on point! Brief Summary of the Storyline: This is Lana and Logan’s story. They meet when Logan’s 4 Stars Overall Opinion: This was a great start to the series.

I think I actually prefer this type of series versus the duet or trilogy where you feel it being stretched out for the sake of multiple books.

They meet when Logan’s work colleague crashes and burns when trying to hit on Lana and they hit it off immediately. Logan is a profiler for the FBI and Lana is a vigilante/revenge serial killer...enough said 😉 Point Of View (POV): This alternated between Lana and Logan’s POV. Overall Pace of Story: Good, I never skimmed and I thought it flowed well. Instalove: No, they do move fast though (haven’t shared “ILYs”) H (Hero) rating: 4.5 stars. Logan. I really liked him. He was confident in the best way! h (heroine) rating: 4 stars. Lana. I feel weird saying I liked her, but I did 😏 Sadness level: Low, no tissues needed Push/Pull: Not really Heat level: Hot. They have some hot tension, chemistry, and scenes -- but not so much it takes away from the story. Descriptive sex: Yes OW (Other Woman)/OM (Other Man) drama: No, just some mild jealousies of other people Sex scene with OW or OM: No Cheating: No Separation: No Possible Triggers: Yes (view spoiler)[Graphic violence/murder (on page) and mentions of rape (hide spoiler)] Closure: This ends on a cliffy but the next books are available! Safety: This one should be Safe with exception for most safety gang readers (view spoiler)[ - Does Not have cheating - Does Not have a descriptive sex scene with OW/OM - Does Not have the h or H pushing away - Does Not have a separation between the h and H - Does have abuse - Does Not have a HEA ending (hide spoiler)]

She and Logan already own me and I'm scared that shit will hit the fan. 😩😩😩 Moving on to the next book because I hate cliffhangers! 😂😂

    Usually, I steer clear of books that have a serial killer as the main character because I am often not able to empathize with them and if I can't relate to characters, I don't like the book. But holy shit this book has changed my viewpoint.

What I loved the most about the book was how the author tackled the sensitivity of the theme and the characters. I feel like narration can make or break characters, especially dark characters; if their story is not told poignantly, then I am not emotionally invested in them, their story, or the book. Not only did I feel sympathetic towards Lara but I really liked her and can't wait to read the next book in the series.

    From the author: “I know this shit is fucked up, so don’t bother writing to tell me I’m twisted in the head”. From me: Yep. You got that right. You totally own it. Logan Bennett - F.B.I. Lana Myers - Serial Killer Never in the history of book titles has their EVER been a more appropriate book title. This is the best, most appropriate, book title in the history of ever. Tomorrow I’m cancelling everything. I need to read book 2 😁 5 I’m mindfucked, enthralledfucked and Wantmorefucked stars from me.

Lana is a female serial killer who's systematically dismembering and murdering the dudes who abused her when she was young. Logan is an FBI agent who specializes in bringing killers like her to justice. The two of them are dating, and Lana knows exactly who and what he is. Logan does not, yet, but Lana is starting to get sloppy. I've read a lot of books where authors try to go the dark route and they bomb. S.T. Abby doesn't bomb. The dating scenes are done really well and would actually be super cute if you didn't know exactly what Lana is doing. We know what Lana is doing because the author shows us, and even though she doesn't wallow in the gory details, she still shows us enough to be shocking. Helping Lana is a childhood friend, Jake, who knows everything about the violence committed against Lana and the violence she's committing to avenge herself. He doesn't approve of Logan, but he's also kind of nauseated by violence, so it's possible he could end up being a problem later. The story ends on a major cliffhanger, and that brings me to my main issue with the book. Everything about this story was perfect except the length. This is one of those serialized stories that's super short and broken up into multiple installments instead of being, you know, a normal, full-length book. I get that this is probably an easier way to not just make money but also cater to fans in a timely, but it's pretty frustrating from a reader standpoint. I'd rather just wait and have the whole book, thanks. I'm deducting a star for the ridiculousness of the story length because this literally ends right after a reveal and clocks in at just over 100 pages according to Goodreads. It's just too short to be good. 3 stars

He awakened a long-gone light as though not all the good inside me had been destroyed." Logan Bennett is married to his job. A clever cop with an honest, sweet and sexy personality. A fucked up revenge plot and sinister minded heroine who melts into a goo when with Logan are my favourite parts of the book. The writing is amazing and the romance blossoming was beautiful. With the cliffhanger, I'm eagerly waiting for what happens when the secrets are reavealed.

    I'm having bad news... C.M. Owens (pen name S.T. Abby) wrote on her author page that she's retiring from writing and she's taking off all her books from all available plattforms. If you want the Mindf*ck series or any of her other books in paperback format you need to buy them now. The author updated her post without the "removing all her books". So no panic, you will still be able to buy her books. So buying them is not urgent 😂 but can only highly recommend this series. It's sooo good! If you wan I'm having bad news... C.M.

And not in that order. I’m just the typical American woman. Or is it the typical American Psycho? ........ an amazing read

    4.5 stars. This is a good beginning to this series. The author is slowly peeling back layers of each character, especially Lana. The ending was an oh shit moment. Actually a couple of them. On to book 2.
