Wow..... this book had me captivated from the very beginning.  Likeable characters... well except for Conrad the psycho ex-husband of course.  Love Gone Mad had me sitting at the edge of my seat nervously waiting to see what would happen next.  I hope to see many more books by this author!

I received this book via BookTribe to give an honest review. There is something about psychological  thrillers that just pull me in. Once I started I could not put it down.  You have an awesome plot that just keeps twisting, a nice OH WOW totally didn't see that coming moment. Megan's husband is an abusive man, and Megan is trying to forget him. Along the way she meets Dr. Adrian who she starts dating, but it seems as soon as they start weird things happen. She thinks her ex-husband is back and is going to make her life a living hell, along with Adrian's. Conrad is not a normal person he seems to have some suped up abilities which come in handy for him to find his ex-wife and her lover.  I really enjoyed the background of the story being insanity? Can you prove someone is legally insane? That is hard to do. But within this book it makes you think about it.   The characters were nice. The problem I had with this book is the fact it seemed the two main character Megan and Adrian didn't date quite enough before they "jumped" into the relationship. Megan wanted to wait a while before Adrian came into her child's life which I think is just great for a mom to do. But it seemed it happened quicker within the story. It was like bam they meet, then they go on a date, then lets wait before you meet my daughter, then okay you can meet her. I felt as though they didn't develop enough of a relationship within the story. It was hard to feel their feelings for each other, it just didn't feel real.  Also some scenes seemed a bit rushed. Like the author was trying to get back to the main part of the story so he wanted to rush with the details. I think maybe if he slowed down a bit and added more details then it would have worked.  If you like thrillers, I would for sure give this book a read. I know I do want to read more by him in the future to see what else he has to offer.

This book reads a bit like somebody learning how to drive a car with manual transmission. You think it will never get going, then it smooths out and you get somewhere, then bogged down again...repeat....repeat. It kept me reading until the bitter end, but it wasn't an entirely pleasant trip. The romance is sappy and the big surprise completely unbelievable. Not as far fetched as the premise of how the bad guy supposedly smelled out his prey, that was truly pathetic. If you can look past these flaws, the suspense and stalking plot is OK. I received a free copy of this book from LibraryThing in exchange for a honest review.

This is the first book I've read of Mark Rubinstein's.  I found the book very difficult to get into.  I had to push myself to keep reading past the 4th chapter but I believe you can't honestly review a book unless you read at least half of it.  Very glad that I forced myself past the beginning chapters!  Mr. Rubinstein gives way too many long, drawn out details.  While it helps to visulize the characters in the book describing them down to the details of the color of the rings in their eyes, etc., gets a bit wordy and boring. Mr. Rubinstein used a lot of medical/legal terminology but told what each meant.  Conrad was a tad to unbelievable.  Thought for awhile that I was reading a science fiction book.  Adrian, Megan and Marlee are quite believeable and easy to connect with, the later connection between Adrian and Marlee a bit over the top. The story as a whole was good and definitely kept my interest.  There was enough action and mystery to keep you wondering, although it was easy to figure out who the stalker was, you were left trying to figure out the why until the end of the book, which is good.  Not everything should be given right out. I for one will read another of Mark Rubinstein's books.  Actually looking into getting his other book Mad Dog House. I'd recommend this book to anyone who enjoys romantic suspense novels.  I don't think this fits as a psychological thriller as much as a romantic suspense book.

What happens when the person you love becomes your worst enemy? LOVE GONE MAD succeeds not only as a sophisticated psychological thriller, but also as a nuanced character study and as an intensive examination of delusional love. It’s well-constructed plot builds suspense right to the very end. I read this book at Cape Cod on the beach – move over “Jaws” -- this is one scary book!

Read from August 22 to 23, 2013 Book Info  348 pages Expected publication: September 1st 2013 by Thunder Lake Press ISBN 0985626860 (ISBN13: 9780985626860) edition language English Source:Netgalley EARC Book Buy Links  AMAZON  B&N  BOOK SYNOPSIS When heart surgeon Adrian Douglas and Megan Haggarty, RN, meet at the hospital where they work, neither has any idea of the scorpion's nest into which they've stumbled. Strange and frightening events begin happening to each of them; someone is after them both--and the stalker is not only brilliant and crafty, but vows to exact revenge for the ultimate betrayal. As things spin out of control, Megan and Adrian fight for their lives. My Thoughts The complexities of this romantic suspense thriller are what set it apart from the others out in the genre today, especially the issue of determining a person's being insane that is at the heart of the latter part of the book. Prior to getting there though we are privy to a buildup by the author that is full of both joy for the second chance given to both Adrian and Megan and fear that their newfound happiness may be short lived if the madman who threatens them both is not stopped. As a lover of romantic suspense thrillers this one was pretty unexpected in the delivery of events that involve the two main characters Adrian and Megan. I thoroughly enjoyed how the author took the characters step by step through bits and pieces of their current and past lives as it allowed them to develop at a natural rate both as individuals and as a couple. Even though at times it did seem as if the romance between the two was a bit convenient in it's relationship to the unfolding of the story it nevertheless was well thought out and appealed to my sentimental nature, after all you want the main characters to find happiness after enduring the previous heartaches in their respective pasts. With the first appearance of our mysterious villain he was made out to be a larger than life character.Conrad Wilson, the ex husband of Megan Haggarty, is a complex character whose very vivid physical description leaves the reader with no doubt that he is not someone you would wish to become involved with in any capacity that would arouse his anger. The man's ruthless disregard for others is chilling as is the fact that his genius level IQ allows him to ensure that he is believable to those who are in control of his future. Reading this story is going to take you to places in human psychological interaction that will surprise you, shock you, anger you and at times make you uncomfortable with what is revealed. My feeling that as a whole though the story will entertain as well as illuminate just how much we do not know or understand about the nature of a true psychopath. It will also probably reinforce the reason why it is not always easy for someone in an abusive situation to escape without forevermore being fearful for their life. This was a book that brought up quite a few points in the course of it's journey and I feel that the author worked them out in the correct manner according to the beliefs that each character was instilled with, including several moral dilemmas for the characters that made them question past actions that impacted their present ones. Suspenseful does not even begin to accurately describe this harrowing journey of a madman's chilling fixation and ultimate fateful conclusion. All in all from start to finish an interesting piece of work that will appeal to a wide audience within it's genre, it is also a book that will be loved or hated but provoke very few lukewarm reactions.

With danger and drama lurking around every corner, it’s a race to survive for a couple who were only looking for companionship and possibly love when they are haunted and stalked by a deranged man bent on revenge. Love Gone Mad by Mark Rubinstein is told “in the moment” with the action happening as I read, raising the terror quotient phenomenally, while taking away from the developing love story. Mr. Rubinstein is great at evil character development, taking me into the twisted and darkly devious mind of the villain, raising the question, how much of this character's plot for revenge was insanity and how much was "the nature of the beast?" The dialogue involving the villain was superb as he played "the game" on the outside, while living his own reality on the inside. For mystery/thriller lovers who enjoy a twisted character or two, this makes an excellent read! An ARC edition was provided by NetGalley and Thunder Lake Press in exchange for my honest review.
