I’m still a newbie when it comes to psychological romances but most of them are dark and dirty, and anyone that follows my reviews knows that I’m all about the dark and dirty! How The Mind Breaks is a DARK read. It is NOT an easy read. It’s twisted, and it’s dark but it’s also so much more than that. It’s unlike anything I have ever read.
