{Book Review} Seeing Double by Karen Runge

What do you do with a woman who can’t love? Not herself, not another. Not the life inside her. You teach her to love. You remind her of gratitude. The benefits of closeness. The pure, beauteous ecstasy that exists in reprieve. 

Seeing Double is damn good! I felt kind of naughty reading it too. It is dark, sexual, and disturbing! 50 Shades ain’t got shit on this book! (Denzel Washington voice)

Daniel, Ada, and Neven are deeply flawed characters, but I wasn’t really invested in them that much. I just kind of felt sorry for the characters.  They require only control and lust.

Daniel, Ada, and Neven live in Asia and all they want to do is experience the deadliest of thrills. The love triangle quickly balloons into savage sexual conquests, which cause their lives to spin out of control. They begin to feel the psychological effects of physical and mental abuse.

Strange occurrences begin happening around town. I will stop there because I don’t want to give too much away. I didn’t see that ending coming!

This is my first time reading Karen Runge, but it won’t be my last. Karen’s writing grabs you from the first page and doesn’t let you go until the creepy ending! I had to know what was going to happen. I had to see how far the three were willing to go. Karen Runge didn’t disappoint!

If Seeing Double had a soundtrack, then Godsmack’s Love, Hate, Sex, Pain and Three Days Grace’s I Hate Everything About You would definitely be on it!

Seeing Double will definitely have you screaming safe words!

I highly recommend this book to fans of horror!

4.5/5 safe words!
