Summary

Mark Murray loves his girlfriend, Rebecca Lucio, but she doesn’t love him. She believes their love has withered away, and she has already fallen for another man, but she struggles to formally end her relationship with Mark. But Mark knows everything already - the lies, the deceit, the cheating. He has a plan to punish Rebecca in the most violent, disgusting way possible. He is going to make her sick...unbelievably sick.

Jon Athan, the author of Dr. Sadist and Scattershot, reinvents the definition of "lovesick" in this disgusting, gag-inducing, and extremely violent horror novel.

Warning: This novel contains graphic content. Reader discretion is advised.

Ever Love Someone Who Hurt You?

Usually when books give me a warning about the graphic nature of a book, I think yeah right, you should read some of the stories I have read. Just like when someone tries to tell me that something is hot, really, try eating some of the things I eat. Well I will tell you that for the average person this is quite spicy and will burn you on the way in and on the way out. This was a disturbing story and gruesome to boot. I have heard plenty of gruesome and disturbing stories and this one was up right up with those. I wouldn’t say this was the most graphic story I have heard, but I did actually have to pause it midway and take a break for something a bit more light hearted. Not something I’m using as an endorsement, but merely a warning for those who can’t handle really sick and twisted stories. I you ever asked yourself, why am I listening to this awful story, this isn’t for you.

The story itself is your basic revenge story amped up on black tar, meth, and a whole bunch of STDs. A lover spurned exacts his revenge in an extremely violent and gory way. I have to hand it to the imagination of the author, the closest thing I can really compare this to is Se7en. Right off the bat, you are thrown into a dark scenario and it just gets darker from there. You get taken to some really quaint places in the neighborhood that really set the scene for the depravity you encounter. None of the story was scary, but you will want to take a shower after and maybe rinse, lather, and repeat a few times. The only thing the bothered me was the seemingly endless supply of cash that Mark had for a burger flipper.

While the main focus is really on the shock value of the scenes, you do get enough of the characters to know that neither of them are really good. Typically, with revenge stories I like there to be at least one redeeming character who you can latch onto, not so much here. I couldn’t sympathize with any of the characters and while none of them started out evil, Mark definitely gets there. While I liked his resolve and psychotic ways, the further his plan progressed the more I drifted away from him and felt sorry for Rebecca. By the time the story ended, nothing surprised me and while odd, I didn’t quite mind it. It was a mixed bag of emotions on a nauseating ride.

Matthew Berry did a good job with the narration. I liked his narrator voice and his subtle changes in tone for the characters. As I didn’t think the characters were meant to be the focal point, I’m glad there wasn’t over the top character voices. Impressed with Berry's ability to read this type of story with a steady voice. I think he told the story how it should have been and with his confident straight forward voice, it was that much more obscene.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

I feel dirty for enjoying this book so much.

This book starts with a warning that it’s not for the weak. Sayings this book is sick is an understatement. I feel guilty for admitting that I couldn’t stop listening. I don’t know how many times I thought WTF. Brutal revenge. The narrator was perfect. I received this audiobook for free, but I wouldn’t regret using a credit. If you’re not easily offended, it’s worth your time to listen.

Brilliant!

At my request, I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Where to begin... this entire piece of art was excellent. What a brave and bold and daring author, as well as the narrator. Right from the start, I had an idea that I was going to love Lovesick. I was NOT disappointed. You could say that this genre is my dirty little secret.

The most disgusting, brutal, grotesque thing I have ever heard. Thrilling and suspenseful. Brilliantly thought out and executed. Absolutely horrific when you consider the ideas in real life, but totally possible. I loved every second of it and will be seeking out the author’s other works.

One man’s literal decent into madness. Beware if you have a weak stomach, enjoy if you love disgust. Don’t take the warnings lightly. 5 stars!!

WTF?!!

This is going to be one of those books that will forever stay with me, you know, one of those books that pop into your head every now and then or one of those books you'll bring up occasionally. Don't get me wrong, I don't mean this in a negative way, I LOVED this book! I'm a true horror and gore fan and this sits on top of the list along with my favorites. It's gory and made my skin crawl and left me saying "WTF?!" countless times throughout the book. It definitely puts a new meaning to lovesick, this guy is nuts! If you're into gore, ya'll need this one in your collection!!

Sick Psychopath

Definitely not recommended for readers who are faint of heart. There is much gross and disturbing torture/violence and sexual activity. Author is one very sick puppy with a vivid wild imagination but great with disgusting/twisted/repulsive writing. This book is about Mark Murray who works in burger joint and is in love with Rebecca Lucio who does not love him. He catchers her with Nick and become a revengeful psychopath against her and society. Recommend to those who like offensive horror as well as his book Dr Sadist. I received a free review audiobook and voluntarily left this review Thank you
