Nicole is a troubled woman who suffers from a multiple personality disorder, one that spurns the evil and diabolical personality “Nikki”. Nicole is just escaping an abusive relationship by murdering her abusive boyfriend (per Nikki) and later tries to move forward and live a normal life. However this is impossible when she tries to build a relationship with new love interest Jeremy who lets it be known from the beginning, he is in it for the sex. Nicole seems to once again get involve in a relationship with a  man who doesn’t love and respect her while philandering with other women in her face. The cycle continues and Nikki takes matters in her own hands by viciously murdering any woman or man who stands in the way of Nicole’s obsessive love for Jeremy. As the murders progress, we soon learn the motivation behind her murderous rampage is the deep and sickening sexual abuse she suffered as a child, when heightens Nikki murderous lust to seek those of her past for retribution. Soon things spiral out of control  as Nikki becomes the stronger personality and suspicions rise causing a ripple effect on Nicole/Nikki that she didn’t expect from the least expected person.

What did you like about the book?
The title definitely fit the actions of Nikki (the alter personality) actions. Very disturbing and diabolical. Actions so graphic, I would recommend a warning label on cover for the average reader to be forewarned.

What did you dislike about the book?
The main character Nicole personality was not as developed as Nikki and the storyline seemed to be repeating the same cycle of actions over and over. The murders being so rampant and close together in reality should have drawn more police attention and suspicions from those around her. It was obvious she was the murderer because it was always the same cycle, over and over.

More focus should have been on 'why she was so smitten in Jeremy, there was no character development to truly justify her obsession, more information should have been given about her past in the beginning than at the end of the book per se to give a better understanding of the character.

What could the author do to improve the book?
Building up the minor characters relationships with the main character would have made this book stronger, also having more realistic repercussions develop from the actions of the character would have helped as well.
