Ever wondered how a relationship between two psychopaths would work out? Now I know.
This book was so much better than I expected! I had seen so many mixed reviews for this one that I was hesitant to pick it up. After all, my recent dark reads haven’t worked out so well for me and I was beginning to wonder if my tastes were changing, steering me away from my usual preference for darker stories.
However, ‘The Bad Ones’ was just what I needed. Rest assured, these are not your run of the mill H/h. Constantine and Dulcie are seriously disturbed individuals. Together, they go on a murderous rampage, dishing out revenge to anyone that had wronged them.
The thing is, there wasn’t a person that they targeted that I felt bad for. Maybe my mind is just as twisted as theirs, but I loved this batshit-crazy couple! Honestly, I was glad to see Matt get what he deserved, along with a variety of others.
That being said, this definitely isn’t a couple that will appeal to everyone. This is a dark, gritty story and contains multiple scenes of violence, abuse, blood and gore. In real life, this is a couple that you’d want to stay far away from.
For me, this book was a fantastic read. I couldn’t put it down! With each page, I was equal parts scared and curious to see what they would do next. Their unconventional relationship was different than anything I’ve ever read about. I was completely captivated by this story!
