Review: Splintered - Criminal Delights: Obsession by Tal Bauer

Splintered is disturbing, strange and...made me at a loss for words.

From the blurb:

Criminal Delights

Everything in Ben's life was perfect. He had it all. The good career. The perfect partner, Evan. The happy home. They were even talking about turning the extra bedroom into a nursery.

But things start to splinter.

Evan begins missing time, not knowing where he was or how he got there. Terrors in the night rip them both from sleep, and Evan's suddenly violent outbursts cost him his job and his reputation.

And voices in his head turn from whispers to screams, commanding him to act.

To turn on Ben.

How far will Ben go to save his partner's life? How far is too far?

Should he have just... run away?

Splintered is part of the CRIMINAL DELIGHTS series. Each novel can be read as a standalone and contains a dark M/M romance.

Warning: These books are for adult readers who enjoy stories where lines between right and wrong get blurred.

High heat, twisted, and tantalizing, these are not for the fainthearted!

Autumn's Review:

Through a dark MM read of the month, my book group picked this book. 

A week later, and I'm still not able to wrap my mind around this book. I've read some strange things, but this book certainly made me question my own sanity. First off, I didn't read the genre section this book was posted in (horror) which would have maybe helped me before I started. 

Demons, mental health and horror mixed into one book. 

Splintered was well written, even though at the start I struggled to push through. But once I got about 30 percent in, I couldn't put this book down at all.
