Mania: A mental illness consisting of episodes of profound excitement, euphoria, delusions, and over-activity.
I deal with highs and lows, but somehow, I end up making the best of it.
My family disowned me, but family is the reason why I’m in Vegas.
Even with my inability to think straight, I end up being in charge of a bunch of runaway mental patients.
Control doesn’t exist if someone is fighting their mind. We have to break in order to mend.
Hence, The Asylum.
A sanctuary for lost causes.
Where crazy can roam free, and compulsions can be let loose.
My nephew says as long as it stays at The Asylum, we won’t have problems.
What fun would it be if problems didn’t exist?
And my problem is in the shape of a dancer, twirling on the front lawn in the middle of the night.
Her laughter is music.
Her beauty is timeless.
And my mania has kicked in overdrive.
When I’m obsessed with something, it’s more than what the normal person feels.
If I can’t have her, no one can.
If I can’t have her, I’ll die.
And I’ll make sure she’ll die too.
I’m a lunatic who has found the living breathing version of his mania.

I don’t even know where to begin, this book is unlike anything I have read before. But the writing style is uniquely KL Savage.
It’s a spin on dark romance with a small dash of dark humor. It plays with characters we have heard about from the Ruthless Kings Series, and shows yet another side to Reaper and his past.
I am loving that the two types of female leads I love from MC romances has been rolled into one for this dark romance and normalization of mental illness is being made here.
There are points I don’t like just for the fact that’s not my thing, I am for instant love stories but this one was a bit much for me, just for the fact it was so instant, they hadn’t even said a word and he wanted to marry her the next day type thing. That is taking it to another level, which is KL Savages way to do it though. Taking that bar and going above so I cannot fault them for that in the least.
It was a sweet dark and twisty book that had an unexpected yet foreshadowed ending that left you wanting more.
If you love Ruthless, Dark and Twisty reads…
