You will hate yourself for loving him.

***Explores dark themes of murder, violence, sexuality, BDSM, the nature of evil...basically all the good stuff.

I am going to begin this review with a few disclaimers. The first being I am a pretty big fan of Jaden Wilkes. While the second being I was more than tad bit nervous as I began to read Serial Volume One by Lily White and Jaden Wilkes. I questioned a tiny part of my sanity as I swiped across the screen of my reader of such a dark tale. I questioned rather or not I had fallen too deep inside of this literary genre’s rabbit hole. Lucky for me, all of my apprehensions were quickly subsided as I began to read about Jude Hollister. Now that thang is plain ole everyday cray-cray. From “ha-ha” crazy to prescription meds crazy, Jude crossed and covered all of the categories of insanity.

Jude had a charmed life. The world was at his oyster. However, as I continued to read about his story and his obsession and need for murder, I found myself feeling like I was reading a crime novel with the FBI investigating the murders of his moniker of The Cascade Killer or CK.

With Jude filling the role of a sick son-of-a-biscuit-eater, there is the woman he claims to love named Veronica or Ronnie Lapierre, but he settles and calls her Pet and hold her captive in his home. I must tell you she is not the strongest or the brightest heroine I have read, but she may be the saddest and most pathetic one EV-ER. However, there is a second heroine of sorts in FBI Agent Emily Chase. Agent Chase who is on the team of agents investigating CK, gives you a little of everything from strength to smarts to tom-kinkery and a whole lot more. Then there is Donovan Blake, the FBI Agent, who is also in charge of the CK investigation. At times, it is difficult to distinguish between the madness of Jude or CK and the dark Alpha male side of the chief investigator.

I digress. Even though, I am uncertain how to describe my feelings about this tale, I must say that it is definitely an intriguing read. The characters alone are enough to draw you in to read Serial Volume Two, especially if you would like a suspenseful, murderous, crime novel with a dash of twisted kink-foolery. My recommendation would be to skip on over to read Serial Volume One by Lily White and Jaden Wilkes.
