    4 shockingly evil and gory stars. Review posted July 6, 2014I lifted my phone away from my ear and hit the speaker button. "Go ahead," I said, and Vince looked at me in askance."All right, you listen here, Fairfield. I don't know what kinda game you're playing this time, but if you hurt Alex again, you'll have me to deal with. I've got my eyes on you, okay?"Vince grinned. "I'll make sure to wear some tight jeans so you get a nice view.""And why would I wanna look at your skinny white ass?""Because it's round, firm and has no tan lines. You can come have a close-up look if you want."There was a moment of silence. "Im gonna just pretend you didn't say that," she ground out. "But remember, you've been warned. Now, put your dick away before I have to come around there and neuter you. I need to borrow Alex for a while. Official police business. You know how it is."Alex Beckman has been promoted to Detective a few months ago and is determined to solve his first important case. The brutal serial killer dubbed Slasherazzi due to his horrific skills with varying knifes, is instilling terror all across the town of Tampa. Alex has his hands full with the murder investigation when his former lover shows up again and complicates his life further.F@ck me sideways…what a terribly evil villain. I've had an inkling who the bad guy would be early into the story but don't let that put you off. That was gut instinct and I'm usually pretty good at figuring out who the villain is. I was right again, yet the ending was quite the unexpected shocker, IMO. *points finger at author Daniel A. Kaine* Anyway, it's best to not give away too much because that will definitely enhance the thrill. All you need to know is Slasherazzi is bone-chillingly scary and the gory scenes are incredibly explicit. All the bloody (and very detailed) scenes are told from the sadistic psycho's POV and I mean it when I say there are rivers of blood as well as completely and utterly mutilated bodies. No need to go into details, though, but I think you get the gist. Friendly advice, don't eat anything while reading this book or you might regret it. It goes without saying that Slasherazzi is not a book for queasy readers. Getting into the mind of the killer was very intriguing. As the story unfolds, it's getting scarier from page to page. You could say he really got into the swing of things; the way he played with protagonists and planned his deeds was horrifying. Well, it might be best to keep the lights on, just saying.I have to put a pretty big question mark behind the violent scenes. Basically all the bloody awful scenes but especially the scene @42 % made me scrutinize WHY......the victims didn't pass out. The scene at 42 % was so incredibly atrocious; I can't describe how freaking awful that was and no individual can stand all that torture without passing out, IMO. I mean he (view spoiler)[sawed his leg off, stopped the bleeding with a hot poker and removed his eye…among other things. (hide spoiler)]Ultimately there remain a couple of unanswered questions.Warning: this is a rather major spoiler…(view spoiler)[At 94 %: When Alex committed himself to a psychiatric ward I was wondering how he would explain that to his boss. To my disappointment, however, no word was mentioned how that delicate situation had been handled. (hide spoiler)]And the biggest question of all…(view spoiler)[QUO VADIS? Even though there is probably no sequel planned, I would like to read one. It isn't over yet. (hide spoiler)]Bottom line, Slasherazzi is a very engagingly written suspense novel that will keep you at the edge of your seat. It's rather heavy on the suspense and the murder investigation, adorned with some sexy man-on-man bedroom action and definitely worth reading if a few extremely gory scenes can't scare you off.Recommended read.["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

    What the heck did I just read?Slasherazzi is an entertaining gore-fest that had me dry-heaving and laughing uncomfortably at the same time. It's not every day you get to read about a man having his leg forcibly amputated and then being kicked by that same leg.Plot concerns a studly detective investigating a series of murders that are described in glorious detail. POV switches between detective and killer so that we are up close and personal for each murder and the murders are DISGUSTING. I love a gory murder, but these...... were a little much even for me.There's also a romance aspect to the book between the detective and a reporter covering the case. I enjoyed this aspect of the story, but the sex scenes, given that they followed the murders closely, left me feeling a little...The book moves along at a good clip. I thought I had things figured out early on, but I was SO wrong. The writing is crisp with believable dialogue and no editing issues that I could find.My only problem with the book was the ending, but I want to stress that it was MY problem. I think a lot of people will enjoy the twist at the end, even though I was doing a bit of this...Even that was made up for by the epilogue, which gave me a fresh case of the heebie-jeebies. This is a page-turning bit of bloody goodness.

    *******No Spoilers*******This book is bloody brilliant!There’s a serial killer on the loose in Tampa. The media dubbed him the Slasherazzi because he sends pictures of his victims’ mutilated bodies to the newspaper. Alex has just recently been promoted to Detective and this is his first major case. He’s trying to prove himself but starting to feel the pressure as the bodies keep piling up and Alex isn’t any closer to catching the killer. To add to the stress, Alex’s on-again off-again boyfriend of two years, Vince, is back in the picture and wants to try to make it work this time. They both made mistakes in the past by putting their careers before their relationship. Vince is a reporter for a local newspaper and has used his relationship with Alex as a way to advance his career. He even went as far as going through Alex's personal notes in order to write a story. Vince swears this time will be different but Alex finds it difficult to trust that Vince isn't using him since he happens to want back in his life when Alex is working on this high profile case. Things get even more complicated when the killer takes a personal interest in Alex.The book is told from Alex’s POV but we get the killer’s POV during the murders. They're described in horrific and gruesome detail and it's awesome. The killer at least has a sense of humor when it comes to murder. I found myself laughing at some his actions and then cringing in horror a minute later. He gets off on torturing his victims so the scenes are often described almost like a sex scene with writhing bodies, arching backs, and fingers penetrating holes.I placed the knife onto his stomach and slipped my finger into the warm hole, sending a shiver down my spine. I gasped… My pants grew tighter, the musky scent of sweat and blood setting my veins on fire.The killer was fascinating and creepy. And yeah I may have been a little freaked out last night when I had to walk to my car in the dark by myself. It was only from the front door to the driveway but let’s see you do it without walking fast after having just read this book. And yes I checked the back seat before getting in.“You’re a sick fuck.”“Correct, but I think that’s a given.”Although Alex and Vince had some hot moments, this is not a romance. This is a suspense thriller, and a freakin’ good one. The story isn’t perfect. There were times when I felt the writing didn’t flow quite so smoothly and I would have liked to have more explanations on certain things at the end but they’re very minor niggles. I loved it and I finished the book thinking, 'shit, that was awesome!' So if you can stomach some gore, I highly recommend it.

    5 stars. Terrifyingly good. Been waiting for this one to come out, and whatever you do, no eating whilst reading...honestly!! Sick and twisted on so many levels (and what does that say about me??) but amazing stuff.Public Service Announcement...this is obviously NOT a conventional m/m romance, so if grisly, gruesome murders are not your thing, step away from the book, do not pass ‘go’, do not collect £200!!.Think I can review this book just with adjectives...Brilliant, graphic, gripping, gory, grim, calculating, chilling, disturbing, creepy, horrific, evil, clever, suspenseful, abused, traumatised, psychopathic.All of which leaves me wanting more Mr Kaine, thank you very much. I could tell you what my favourite lines were but that would spoil the ride for the rest of you, and I defy anyone not to gasp in shock at the ending. Enjoy!!

    I’m Stunned! Blown Away! Traumatized! Astonished! Bewildered! In a state of freaking shock!Call it what you will, you name the adjective, but that’s exactly how I was feeling while reading this incredible book…and then, when you get to that ENDING!!!! OMFG!!! Seriously, this is one of the most extreme psychological thrillers I’ve ever read, and one of the most brilliantly descriptive with all its graphic goriness. My mind was going with “Silence of the Lambs” meets “SAW,” sandwiched between a somewhat angsty and dysfunctional MM romance. Fooking awesome!!!Let’s be real here for a moment. If you love a good suspenseful horror story, and the graphic violence is not a hard limit for you, then you will love this book. If you think you know who the killer is, because yes, the author expertly tries to lead you to believe it’s one person, and the evidence all leads that to be true, but you know it’s a lead in, and you know it’s a twist meant to throw you off the real killer’s trail, then you will love this book. But Holy Schnitzel Batman…I did not see that twist coming, or the next one. OMG!!! I loved this book!It was intense, baby, capital I.N.T.E.N.S.E.I so want to give this review justice. I so want to tell you how it ends and who the bad guy really is, but that would just be mean. This is a book meant to be read without any previous knowledge or spoilers besides knowing that it’s harsh, and violent, and not for everyone, but it is so worth every penny and every minute spent staring at the words with your mouth hanging open and with a look of pure unadulterated shock on your face. Move over Stephen King, Daniel A. Kaine is in the house!Alex is a newly minted homicide detective investigating a gruesome, obviously deranged, serial killer. Vince is his on again-off again journalist boyfriend. On again-off again because Vince can’t help but stick his nose into Alex’s police business…and then write about it in the paper. I felt so bad for both of these guys. It’s so obvious they love each other, but they are like water and oil with their respective careers constantly at battle. I think Alex was a little out of line with his treatment of Vince but, these are grown men who needed a little more trust in that relationship to make it work. We eagerly watch their conflict hoping they can finally figure out how to make their relationship gel while in the midst of a horrific and suspenseful murder investigation. I never had any doubts that they would last…I just didn’t expect it to happen the way it did. Whoa!So in closing, I highly recommend this deliciously written gore-fest for those who want a suspense filled mystery wrapped around two men desperately trying to solve an intense case all while hoping they can fix their dysfunctional relationship. It’s everything I never knew I wanted in my MM romance story. I can’t wait to see if Daniel A. Kaine decides to expand on this book; it could definitely happen. No, it does not end on a cliff hanger, but yes, he left it open just enough that if he chose to write another book, he would already have a captive audience cheering him on, and I, for one, would be the first person in line.The Blogger Girls

    4.5 stars! This one is not for the squeamish, that’s for sure! Very detailed and gory! This one kept me on the edge of my seat the very until end. I thought I knew where the story was headed, but I was wrong. On several occasions. There are so many twists and turns, I was completely surprised by the ending. And that epilogue was truly creepy! A great mystery/thriller with lots of hot smexy time mixed in!

    That was fun! How could it not be with a name like Slasherazzi?Detective Alex Beckman’s murder case turns high profile in a hurry when bodies keep piling up with no leads, evidence, or suspects in sight. And the press is all over him—including journalist and ex-lover Vince Fairfield—a man he cannot get out of his system. Their on again-off again relationship begins to heat up along with the Slasherazzi case. Can Alex solve the problems in his love life and the case? Slices, stabs, screams, and blood. Pools and puddles of blood! Oh, how the crimson drops and muffled screams make our killer’s heart thump and pump. For some reason, I’ve always enjoyed the voice of a fictional psycho. I may have even fallen for a psycho or two in real life, but that’s a whole other story. :D The crazies just seem so who-gives-a-flying-f*ck free and hilariously insane! How they see the world never fails to terrify and amuse me. Yes, I realize that makes me a bit nuts as well, but hey—I own it. “There was little else of interest, and, to my surprise, no sign of any duct tape. The fact that she had none, or had hidden it well, was enough of a reason to kill her. Only stupid people don’t have any duct tape.” LOL! The killer was my favorite character in this story. Being in his (or her) head made me giggle and cringe. And damn the action got good and gory! Hitting all the ooey-gooey spots on the body. From eyeballs to well…balls! Gritty, gross, and nothing you can do but scream and bleed scenes filled this story. Definitely a read for the bloodthirsty fans.The end was not a huge surprise. But I still had fun with it all!*BIG Spoiler*—Don’t click until you read this book. (view spoiler)[ It’s also one of those endings that will mess with my head later on. I’ll start thinking about it, taking it all in and realize that’s who he’s sleeping next to for the rest of his life. *shivers* Haha…Awesome!(hide spoiler)]My favorite line: (view spoiler)[“Now I could carry Dad around with me, and share my hobby with him.” :o(hide spoiler)]Highly recommended read.

    Will read you so soon, book.And not just because you're gory and gruesome like I love it, or because the author claims to be, like myself, dovahkiin, but because someone has to give love to our Tauren brethren. We all know without healz, us dps and tanks are pretty useless.But seriously, this books sounds disgustingly awesome.

    1.5 stars I'm watching these ratings and I cannot believe them. From completely dumb detectives (including Alex), poor characterization, laughable psychobabble, unbelievable developments and underwhelming (and before used) resolution, there is nothing to justify them. The somewhat competent writing saves the book from being a complete loss, but it just underlines everything else wrong with the book. As an avid reader of mystery/thriller/police procedural stories, I hoped for an exciting read. To say I was disappointed is an understatement.

  • Sandi ♥'s way too many M/M books
    2018-11-18 16:01

    I'm going 4.5 stars because just WOW what a read, what a finale. The story kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. And Yea I read it not only in 1 day but stayed up until 1 in the am to do so. The smexy time was embedded perfectly. But the last 20% I have no words just read the book!

    2018-12-05 16:09

    i think I must have read a completely different book than everyone else.There's really nothing positive I can say about it. After reading the first 40% I figured it wouldn't end up being a 1 star, since it, if nothing else, had some proper gory murder scenes going on, but then even those turned completely stupid.(view spoiler)[I can't imagine how anyone would be conscious, much less be able to have a coherent conversation going on, after having their leg cut off and eye picked out with a knife. (hide spoiler)]The cheese alone would be enough for a 2 star rating, add the laughable "police procedures", the sexscenes sounding like scripts from shady porn movies, and the completely caricaturisttic characterization, and there's not much left to like.Clearly this one wasn't for me.

    °•○★5 Stars ~ KAPOW!★○•°A "Live Your Life, Buy The Book" ReviewIt’s official. Daniel Kane is a sick sick man. Good grief! Reading this book was just like watching a horror film. I actually turned my head away from my Nook in one of the many graphic murder scenes. They’re told from the serial killer’s POV and you WILL feel his evil glee. I actually just shivered thinking about it. He doesn’t skim over anything like a lot of murder mysteries and it’s weird to say but these scenes are very well written. Slasherazzi is sick. It’s twisted AND it’s brilliant.Alex is a Detective on the task force to find the Slasherazzi. A sadistic serial killing men in Tampa. The serial killer always seems to be one step ahead of them and is loving the media attention he’s been getting. Catching the Slasherazzi is pretty much consuming Alex’s life. The newest grizzly murder brings his ex boyfriend back into his life. His Ex, Vince, is a reporter covering the Slasherazzi for a local paper. Their reasons for breaking up over and over stem from Vince’s need to make the headline first by way of insider information not always given freely from Alex. It’s caused some serious trust issues in what would otherwise be a potential serious relationship. When things start getting a little close to home, Alex has to decide who he can trust.That was so much harder than it should have been. I could spoil easily but I think I stayed vague enough. There are just so many twists and turns. You suspect many and don’t know who Alex should trust. There comes a point when he doesn’t either.There is definitely a love story in this book. The MCs are kind of a mess and usually fighting but you know they want to be together. Why else would they keep coming back for more? There is some really sexy chemistry going on between Alex and Vince. You can feel how much they enjoy being together. Well, when things are good anyway.When you pick up this book know that you are about to read something violent and dark. The lightest thing this book has to offer is some humor sprinkled around. Oh and some hot and playful sex! The first page was shocking and doesn’t let up until the victim’s last breath. I admit to being uncomfortable at first but couldn’t stop reading it. The ending smacks you in the face. I’ve been thinking about it all day. I kind of want to go back and reread it to see all the clues I probably missed the first time around. This is absolutely a must read for horror book or movie fans. I even had one of those moments when you want to yell at the character because he does the totally wrong thing and you know it but in this case you don’t KNOW it. Total mind fuck! Add in all the gory glory and you have one sick and twisted tale in Slasherazzi.

    It is no secret that I have gotten into a MM/mystery hole, and that I am quite happy there. The reason I mention this is, I've read a LOT of fantastic MM/mystery/detective/romance books these last few weeks; a lot of fantastic/disgusting/horrible 'whodunits'.But this one, this one takes the cake (for horrible)! And I simply cannot finish.So Alex is a detective in Tampa, his partner on the job is a black woman and his partner in private is a journalist called Vince. They are on-and-off... (and on-and-off and on-and-off, so if that is not your thing, don't read this!)Also we have Alex'a POV and then we have the murderer's POV, and FUCKING HELL that was disgusting; proceed with caution, this is NOT a book for sensitive or squeamish people.At one point the murderer stabs one of his victims and sort of simulate intercourse in the wound with his finger... *GAG*!!!I get that the dark mystery novels are supposed to be... You know DARK, but this was not a dark novel it was sadistic AND ridiculous at the same time.We have this creepy POV with a LOT of graphic descriptions of the murders, and then we have this COMPLETELY ridiculous sub-plot between Alex and Vince, where they act like idiots and douchebags (Alex especially) and argue (quite viciously), but then make up like teenagers.They have had issues communicating, before this story takes place (they are an 'established' couple, when it begins), but the way they behaved, until I threw in the towel (at around 50%) was like reading a soap, while getting the sadistic/disgusting/horrible POV in between.It really threw me for a loop, and I could not, for the life of me, combine those two approaches to a 'whodunit'.Also when I threw in the towel, Alex was of course taken off the case, and he decides that he will investigate the matter himself (with Vince, because...), because that is what a brilliant POLICE detective does?!?Jeebus FUCKING christmas, this did not work for me! I'm clearly in the minority here, but if you want to read a MM/mystery/detective/smexy/romance, there are a LOT of books out there that will raise the hairs on your neck, your blood pressure and your libido... This one was not it, for me!

    5 starsWhat the hell did I just read? No. I mean really...what did I just read?This is one of the most fucked up books I've read in years. The last ones being Dark Origins and The Woods Are Dark. Even though it was so totally messed up I found myself wanting more. At first I was like whoaaaa that scene was super gory...gag. But then it would move on to the police and FBI and I was ready for things to pick up again. Not that they were boring by any means but they didn't have me on the edge of my seat like the gory parts did.I'll be honest. Through this whole book I considered it to be a four star read. This was my first book by Daniel Kaine and I was pleasantly surprised how much I liked it. At the same time I kept wondering why the sex scenes were thrown in there. I think there were three? big ones and I felt like the story was strong enough without them. Then I reached the end and it made a little more sense to me.Now the end. Holy shit the end. You know it's good when you go up to everyone you know, whether they read m/m or not, and say "I just read the most fucked up book" and proceed to tell them the details whether they want to know or not. I definitely did not see that coming. Of course I wondered about that earlier in the book, but I was convinced it couldn't be. I really didn't think it would...come out in the open the way it did.BUT THE ENDING. I'm still stuck on the ending. It made the book go from four stars to a solid five. I had to sit there for a long time because 1. my mind was blown and 2. I didn't think I could find a book that could follow that. For those who are wondering, it's not really a cliffhanger. You find out what you need to know but...BUT I can see where the author would do book two. It's set up where you can read the last page and be happy with it OR if you're like me you have all these things running around in your head about how there could be another book that's just as crazy. Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy. I really want another book.

    Ok, so I do a lot of my reading at night. Often with just a bedside lamp on, and the rest of the room thrown into a gloomy relief. Then I started Slasherazzi by Daniel Kaine and I swear to you I turned on every single light within 20-foot radius. Was it scary? Yes. Was it spine-chilling terrifyingly scary? Oh my, definitely yes. Move over Stephen King, Daniel Kaine has arrived.The story is deceptively simple. A cop, Alex Beckman, is pursuing a violent (read sick) serial killer who likes to carve up his victims and sever their heads from their bodies. After Alex and his partner Sonja investigate the first few victims, they see a change in the killer’s pattern. Before the victim’s throats were slit and the carving was done posthumously. Now, the killer has escalated and he appears to be torturing the victims before offing them. That torture includes carving into their genitalia and, in some cases, removing pieces of or all of it from their bodies. The scenes are graphic but that is not, believe me, the most disturbing thing about this novel. No, you see not only are the scenes described on page but also they are done so by the killer, himself. And trust me when I tell you this guy is one very sick SOB.The problem is that his narrative is also hypnotic in nature and amazingly well written. I felt as though I had fallen down a rabbit hall and landed in crazy town every time the killer took over the narrating from our detective, Alex. The scene descriptions were so cunningly drawn and described that you simply could not tear your eyes away even though you are terrified to continue reading.As the killings continue to mount, we learn more about Alex and his on again, off again affair with Lance, a journalist for the local newspaper. Apparently, Slasherazzi has been leaving graphic prints for Lance to use with his stories. This made Lance hungry for any details he could find on the killer. Much like Alex, Lance also gets overly involved in his job and it is revealed that the reason Alex does not fully trust Lance is because Lance tampered with the file Alex kept on the serial killer and used the info for his news article. So there now lies an uneasy trust between the two men and yet a strong attraction persists. All that is about to change however, as the investigation heats up, the FBI are called in and both Lance and Alex are viewed as potential suspects. Is Alex or Lance a serial killer? Or are they Slasherazzi’s next victims?Honestly, this novel kept me up half the night. I truly could not put it down. To say something trite like it was a good mystery wrapped up in the makings of a horror story is not nearly to do justice to this riveting story. And the end? Well, I can honestly say I actually shouted out the words, “oh my god, NO!” The characters were spot on, believable, interesting, easily working on your heartstrings and pulling at the edge of your last ounce of sanity, from the killer to our romantic leads, this group was exciting and compelling.There is graphic depictions of violence in this novel so be forewarned. But, please, do not let that keep you from reading this tantalizing story.

    This was really difficult to rate. I feel like I could have and probably should have loved it, but I just didn't connect to the book like I have others. It's got the darkness I love, and it's really graphic, but the connection wasn't made. And that means I didn't fall in love with the book, so it'll have to be a four stars for me.Slasherazzi isn't as much a romance as it is a dark thriller. There is a romance thrown into the mix, but it's not the main focus. It's a book that really goes dark and graphic, which means a lot of people should avoid it if they are triggered by that sort of thing. Or, if you just don't like that type of thing in general. This book could upset a lot of people.The book is kind of hard to review. I could go into a long review about what I thought would happen, and how even though I questioned myself a couple of times, I was right about the killer's identity. But that would be a huge spoiler and I don't want to do that to people who might decide they would prefer not to know. So I won't go anymore into the main plot. But I will say that, if you really do like darker reads, this should be one you consider. It's definitely dark and gruesome. And it doesn't shy away from graphic scenes, which is why this book won't be for everyone.Also, if you need to know about the ending. This book has an ending that, while it isn't a cliffhanger or anything, it didn't feel like the end of the story to me. Others may feel differently, and I suspect some will, but I feel there is room and potential for a sequel and I probably would read it.

    Fanfuckingtastic! This was one of the best murder mystery stories that I've read in a very long time. It reminded me of the Hitchcock mysteries in its style. It wasn't as gory as I thought it would be but there was genital mutilation. I started to think that the ending was weak when wham Mr. Kaine hit me with a mind blowing ending true to the Hitchcock style. The only negative that I found is that Mr. Kaine needs to work on making his dialogue more realistic sounding. Highly recommended.

    4.75 stars!!!Holy Freaking Hell! WOW! Slumps back in chair….I need to let this sink I really need to let this…..WowI don’t think that even after a week recovered that I’ve recovered yet. This was intense, bloody, gruesome, and not for the weak hearted! It was very well detailed, expressive and all consuming to say the very least.As I mentioned the story isn’t for the tender minded. It is very explicit in describing the mentioned murder scene’s and I shivered a few times at how expressive it was written down by the author, and I don’t consider myself as weak hearted or careful at all.You shouldn’t pick up this story if you cannot deal with the explicit descriptions of blood and pain and horror I would even say. This is just not your story.If you can deal with those things and look beyond it all, you’ll see a fantastic , sensational story. It’s so wonderfully written that it keeps you informed and interested from beginning to end.I could tell more about the story but I think with a story like this, it is about how you personally experience reading it, when it comes with what sounds like almost a manual.I stepped a bit out of my comfort zone in picking this up but I don’t regret it for a moment.You follow the life of detective Alex, experiencing through his eyes what he sees while the murders take place. You read about his rekindling of his lovelife with reporter Vinceand you follow them on their quest to find the killer, who as expressed in the blurb also seems to have a personal angle towards Alex.Where does Vince fit in. He loves Alex he wants to make sure that they will make it this time around after failing the first time. He wants to make Alex see that what they have is too good to lose a second time around. The sexual attraction is very much there and really nicely described by Daniel Kaine.Then when we get towards the end of the book we see more and more shocking things or should I say unexpected things? You hear and notice things that get you even more drawn in than in the beginning. What’s happening here; what doesn’t fit; what works what doesn’t; what is it that feels off…The end I can only say blew me away and till this day still I am astonished and rattled I cannot believe I read what I read. I am kind of devastated and still wonder if I really wished to have read that end. But that is of course personal!If you go for a different, exceptional read and you can do blood and gore. This will be the book for you. If you like a thriller plot, good scenes, some well placed hotness, and extremely talented writing, you are at the right address.Jump on the knife and let it cut you through this novel.Review posted at :http://lovebytesreviews.com/2014/07/0...

    After having recently met the very gorgeous Daniel A. Kaine, and then having a ton of people recommend 'Slasherazzi' to me, I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book. I was familiar with the author, but only from a short story in an anthology; however, his writing had greatly impressed me. And, let's face it here, people, this story is right up my alley. It's gruesome, sick, twisted, and dark.Alex and his partner Tanya have been working the Slasherazzi killer with absolutely no leads in sight. This latest victim is number five, and their killer is escalating as he's now torturing them while they're still alive. If you've ever watched any type of criminal TV shows, then you know that the last thing a cop wants is the killer to escalate, to grow more comfortable, and seek to evolve. Having Vince, Alex's on-again, off-again reporter boyfriend, show back up isn't helping matters. It seems that Vince can't seem to separate his job from his relationship with a homicide detective. Huh, I wonder why?The deaths continue to pile up, including a detective, which brings the FBI in to assist. Unfortunately, it looks as though the killer has been playing a game, all along, of cat and mouse with Alex, and pretty soon the game won't be enough. This killer is very smart, leaving no evidence, no witnesses, and changing his modus operandi, something almost unheard of by serial killers. Not to mention this killer is very creative in his methods, and the author did a wonderful job showcasing the depths of his depravity.I'm a little speechless at the end of this book. I had guessed the killer earlier, although I think that was more from luck than anything else. However, I never in a million years could've guessed where the author took the story. I'm supremely impressed by the writing, and the story. Excellent work, Daniel, thank you.NOTE: This book was provided by Wilde City Press for the purpose of a review on Rainbow Book Reviews.

    The book, Slasherazzi by Daniel Kaine, was recommended to me by a FB friend. This, along with the appealing title and eye-catching cover had me thinking “ok I’ll try it.” I devoured it in 24 hours. I could not put it down, and when I HAD to put it down, it was occupying space in my brain. When I finished this morning, my first thoughts were OHMYGOD. And then WHATTHEF**K??! I was equally entertained and grossed out by this story. It is not recommended for those with a weak stomach; this story could have been written by the master of horror, Stephen King himself. Please step away if you can’t handle gore. That being said, it’s going to sound strange for me to say it’s also a love-story, of the strongest, most romantic kind. Unfortunately, I can’t say too much more without giving away the plot. The two main characters, Alex and Vince, are both career men who are dedicated to their jobs. Alex is with the police department and Vince is a reporter with the local newspaper. There is a sadistic murderer on the loose in town and Alex is heading up the Task Force to find the killer, as Vince hangs onto his on-again, off-again boyfriend, Alex’s coattails to hopefully get the scoop. I am blown away by this story. Please heed my warning, and if this sounds like something you can handle, check it out. You will NOT be disappointed. 5-Star read for me; highly recommended. Thank you Daniel Kaine, for a highly disturbing yet thoroughly entertaining ride.

    Holy f***. When I try to think what to write about Slasherazzi by Daniel A Kaine, that is the only phrase that comes to mind. It has been a long time since a book has given me a book hangover. It has been a long time since I have said to people, flat-out without reservation or qualification, “buy this book”. It has been even longer since a book has left me at a loss for words. Slasherazzi has done all three.Find the Full review at Prism Book Alliance http://www.prismbookalliance.com/?pos...

    This isn’t the first time I’ve read Daniel Kaine, but I will say it’s the first time he’s shocked and awed me. And it’s got me thinking, how does he sleep at night? The opening chapter really sets the tone for this story. It’s gruesome and detailed, with a play by play of the murderer dismembering his victim. There’s nothing left to the imagination here, I loved it.Our main character Alex really has his work cut out for him. He’s the lead detective trying to catch a serial killer, and there’s not a lot of evidence to go on. With the victims piling up, he’s running out of time. He’s also dealing with his on again/off again lover Vince, a local journalist trying to make a name for himself and who will stop at nothing to get his story. Even if it means betraying his lover.While I wouldn’t categorize this as your conventional romance, there is a love story. Alex and Vince definitely have chemistry and some really great sex. As they are trying to give their relationship another chance, they have to deal with trust issues, having time for each other, and yes, that pesky killer running about. I enjoyed watching them trying to get it right and flailing about. Half of the time I wanted them to be together, the other half I just wanted to put them out of their misery. Will they work it out and find their HEA? You’ll have to read it to find out.I really loved the flow of this story. The author keeps the reader engaged throughout the entire book. The storyline is very strong and Mr. Kaine’s words keep the story moving flawlessly, without unnecessary babble. I felt the author did a great job in keeping the reader guessing who the serial killer is. With the hints and clues sprinkled throughout the story, I really thought I had it all figured out. Boy, was I wrong. I’m not giving any spoilers away, but the ending literally blew my mind. Kudos to the author for his cleverness.I would have to say my favorite part of this story was being inside the killer’s head. Actually seeing his thoughts and feeling his rage as he tortured his victims was a very unique perspective. Not many stories have that and with my morbid, sick sense of entertainment, I absolutely loved it. The author doesn’t hold back any detail here, so for those of you who get squeamish over blood and gore, you have been warned. Certain body parts are sliced and diced and the victims are shown no mercy.Overall, this was a great read. If you love a great murder mystery with some romance and a lot of blood, this one’s for you.

    It was clear this was not going to be an easy story. From the beginning it was clear that it was to be a very dark tale.Cutting was a new game to me. In the past, I stuck to playing with the body only after I had watched the life drain from their eyes and blood stream from their lacerated throats. But now, I needed something more. The old routine had become boring...stale. I needed more excitement. More blood. More screaming. I was no longer content with a mere reminder of their lives passing under my supervision. I needed to find my release as they found theirs. Death was what I sought, what I craved. It was the ultimate release. But now I had the order right, a part of the learning process like experimenting with which parts to cut, and in what order, to produce the maximum amount of pain and terror. The greater the agony, the greater the climax when death finally came - and so did I.Alex was a homicide detective trying to solve a series of gruesome murders. He is also openly gay and in an off and on relationship with a journalist. Often off again because the journalist keeps using him to get inside information on current crimes. I liked the descriptions of the interactions of the various criminal justice professionals. There was no mystery as to who was doing these crimes, but the twist at the end was a shocker and creepy! High altitude creepy. Not sure I can say I liked the ending but from a writer's POV it was perfect as it still chills me.

    4.5 starsI thought it was brilliant having the killer's POV draw us in from the very first chapter and then keep our interest by voicing it throughout the story. It was a nice way to show the level of depravity going through their mind (which I thought I was prepared for but now I may never eat salami or sausage again so thanks for that). Yes, there was some truly sick and twisted shit here and I can't remember the last time I read a book that had me wincing, flinching and clenching various body parts so frequently. Nicely done! And in between torture sessions and the police investigations that followed, we got to see Alex and Vincent have some hot sex and work on their relationship issues, so there was a little bit of something for everyone here ;)But the ending? You can't just go THERE and leave us there. How are some of us supposed to sleep at night? We're gonna have to have more please. :)
