Dead Inside

Title: Dead Inside
Author: Chandler Morrison
Synopsis: In this bleak and disturbingly erotic debut novel, iconoclast Chandler Morrison provides readers with a dark exploration of the nature of death, individuality, and generational identity. Along the way, lines will be crossed, taboos will be violated, and common decency will take an extended leave of absence. This is not for the faint of heart or weak of stomach. Or anyone who enjoyed Fifty Shades of Grey.
A young hospital security guard with a disturbingly unique taste in women. A maternity doctor with a horrifically unusual appetite. When the two of them meet, they embark on a journey of self-discovery as they shatter societal norms while engaging in destructive and abhorrent behavior. As they unwittingly help each other understand a world in which neither of them seems to belong, they begin to realize what it truly means to be alive...and that it might not always be a good thing.

"I hope he likes sloppy seconds."

Arguably the best line of the whole book. Dead Inside is the book you hate to love. It has all the disgusting gore and violence with a touch of romance.  Extremely well written, I was not at all phased by the content.  Is that a testament to my mental well being? Maybe. Doubtful. Or maybe I am looking for something new to shock me while still being character driven and immersive. Would I recommend this book? Hell yeah! But read it at your own risk.

"Okay, before I go on, I should warn you that this part is what most people would consider to be gross or appalling.  If you were expecting fifty shades of softcore mommy porn, you're going to be disappointed."

I would definitely categorize this as horror smut.  Its dirty and nasty, and really terrifying. Terrifying in the sense that if these were real people, they would be the perfect couple.  I was completely invested in the characters and their connection.  Dead Inside did everything for me that I look for in a 5 star story. I felt true genuine emotions even when they were negative.  I laughed so many times and the humor was authentic and not forced.  The characters were clearly developed.  Sure they weren't conventional, but they were done with love and care. 

Also, I agree, Invisible Monsters was better.
