#BookReview #PNR // Four Psychos by Kristy Cunning

Four Psychos
The Dark Side #1

Kristy Cunning

I’ve not read the author before but this was chosen as our group PNR buddy read – possibly in honour of her recent passing. I was impressed by the quality of characterisation, the intriguing plot and the snarky humour demonstrated by our heroine Keyla, who’s sole perspective it is written from. Once picked up this book somehow buried itself under my skin and I didn’t want to put it down.

It doesn’t have the greatest world building or the most complex of plots and whilst it talked a lot of sex it didn’t really have much action for a reverse harem book. Yet somehow I thoroughly enjoyed every single chapter, paragraph, line and word. The only thing stopping me from immediately jumping into book #2 ( Three Trials ) is that it’s scheduled to be buddy read in September! I’m hoping we see the four anti-heroes develop distinct characters, I found Gage to be instantly forgettable and at times Kai and Jude felt too similar. However with three further books there is plenty of time for that to still happen!

I found myself laughing so many times and I absolutely adored Keyla and Ezekiel. Jude and Kai have some serious work to do in earning both of our forgiveness, but I trust with all their various skills and talents they will easily manage that 😉. I’m hoping my views won’t change as I continue with the series but based on this first book it is definitely one I would recommend, particularly to fans of K.F. Breene’s PNR/Urban Fantasy work and also Tara West’s Eternally Yours series.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Paranormal / Fantasy Romance

Age 16+ – Sexual situations, Reverse Harem, Dark humour, Language warning


I’m not so different from most people. Like everyone else, I have life goals.

Goal #1: Become a real girl instead of this invisible ghost thing I currently am.
Goal #2: Convince the four men I’ve been haunting for the past five years to pick me to be their new toy after goal one is complete.
Goal #3: Figure out who/what I am and why I can’t remember anything past the five years I’ve been haunting this quad.
Goal #4: Eat popcorn.

See? Perfectly normal. Sort of. Gotta start small, after all. It’s not like anyone else is perfect either.

  1. It was fun for me to read your review because I haven’t read any of the Kristy Cunning books. I have read her ST Abby Mindf*ck series and I would highly recommend it if you like romantic suspense. It will be one of my top reads for the year. I also just read her CM Owens Sterling Shores series, which was a lot of fun. I like that she wrote so many different styles. You have me considering reading this one, even though this is not a genre I generally read.
