The Bad Guy by Celia Aaron

[BLURB]

My name is Sebastian Lindstrom, and I’m the villain of this story.
I’ve decided to lay myself bare. To tell the truth for once in my hollow life, no matter how dark it gets. And I can assure you, it will get so dark that you’ll find yourself feeling around the blackened corners of my mind, seeking a door handle that isn’t there.
Don’t mistake this for a confession. I neither seek forgiveness nor would I accept it. My sins are my own. They keep me company. Instead, this is the true tale of how I found her, how I stole her, and how I lost her.
She was a damsel, one who already had her white knight. But every fairy tale has a villain, someone waiting in the wings to rip it all down. A scoundrel who will set the world on fire if that means he gets what he wants. That’s me.
I’m the bad guy.

Author's Note: This is a 90,000-word romance with dark themes and a HEA.





[MY THOUGHTS]
4.5 out of 5 stars

Sebastian is so good at being bad. He's filthy rich, powerful, and utterly ruthless. As a psychopath, he lacks normal emotions. But when he sees Camille for the first time, he senses something he's never felt before.

Unfortunately she has a boyfriend. So he does the only thing that makes sense.

Kidnap the girl.

More than half of the story is told in Sebastian's point of view, so we get to really dive into his crazy dark mind. See how he processes things and lives in the real world.

This was a really fun read, and I'm so glad I got a chance to read this. It wasn't as dark as I thought it would be, but I enjoyed every second.
