~USA TODAY BESTSELLER~
Kidnapped. Taken to a private island.
I never thought this could happen to me. I never imagined one chance meeting on the eve of my eighteenth birthday could change my life so completely.
Now I belong to him. To Julian. To a man who is as ruthless as he is beautiful—a man whose touch makes me burn. A man whose tenderness I find more devastating than his cruelty.
My captor is an enigma. I don’t know who he is or why he took me. There is a darkness inside him-a darkness that scares me even as it draws me in.
My name is Nora Leston, and this is my story.

I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
Most "DARK' romances, are not usually all that dark... Well not my kinda of dark. There needs to be a level of violence with a dark romance... If you fall in-love with the H/h who is supposed to be the bad guy, in like chapter 2, well that just defeats the purpose of having a villain right..
Anyway, THIS WAS AWESOMENESS!!! A great DARK romance!!!
Our H is a totally mysterious but likeable A-hole for the things he do to the h... I was totally wrapped in the story the entire book.
It got a bit boring during the middle, but actually now that the book is over... the middle really makes sense...because where the h was being held... there was really nothing to do, but what she was doing...sooooooo...Yeah, no action required... (by golly! I think I just figured that out!)
So after the hospital, the book goes from 0.... nah, more like 35mph to 60 in the blink of an eye. I was literally pressing my ear bobs into my eardrums to make sure I heard this and that... I didn't want to miss anything! The action toward the end was that good...but then... right before the ending, the h... OMG! I just wanted to b*slap her....
Yes, by now you will totally love the H, even though you only know a pinky nail much about him,but STILL.... I felt like the h didn't deserve my perfectly badass villain... She totally broke the ultimate rule!!!
Anyway... I loved the ending, serious little girl butterflies.... Awesome job Anna Zaires... Awesome job...
The smex was just so smexy too... Love me some Alpha Man punishment!!!
Narration was not the greatest...but a far far step up from the Liaison books by Zaires on Audible. I actually wish this narrator could go back and re-narrate the Liaison books, because that series is one of my faves, that was ruined by narration... Rae did a decent job with this... Love the H voice... so smexy!
This is a totally Credit or Sale... I prefer not to buy books over 10 bucks unless its a must have... This was more like a very enjoyable have... a definite re-listen, but not necessarily a must have. Although, one could save a credit for a more enticing listen and just buy this because its not that expensive... still under 15 bucks... This book wasn't enticing like you are ready to beat someone if they disturb you...this was however, highly enjoyable... 2pts for Zaires!!
If you hang in there thru the first of this book, you will be completely drawn on... Different view of romance, darker then 50 Shades... Looking forward to the second book to see how the story progresses...
The book went above my expectations... I, like Nora, wanted to hate Julian... He operated outside of normal morality. He didn't seem to have any remorse for his actions or for her emotional torment. Ultimately, I craved more info on him as well. Crazy conflicting. Great book... Never had a book make me see the allure of the darker side like this book...
I struggled to get through. I never got a connection to the characters and myself not caring it they lived or not. I kept thinking something big would happen.
this book has everything you need in it and more I couldn't put this book down I look forward to reading more like it I am addicted to Twisted
I've never read a book like this one...it pushes boundaries, it's dark, sexy, and makes you completely obsessed in the story. This is the first book of Anna's I've read and to say I'm a fan for life doesn't seem to do my love for this book justice.
Although the storyline is dark, and some would think it's unnatural to love a story so much, it shows you there's an undeniable love and connection, fascination and a spark that you'd do anything to keep with you always. Thank you for such a sexy, hot, intriguing story!
This was my first erotic audio book. I was caught off guard at first by the subject matter. Not because I didn't like it, but because, I didn't think they were putting things like this in audio books. I thought the plot and storyline were great and very hot.
Nora, I liked the fight in her
The kitchen scene when she finally gave in.
Great book, great series
I felt like Nora felt about this book. I was confused about how I can like a book that I feel like I should hate. It was dark. Julian was a phyco-sociopath, but something about him I liked. I felt bad for Nora. Yet, I wanted her to be with Julian. I want to read more of their story, but I need a moment.
wonderful beautiful amazing not enough good things to say addicted a must read or even better listen couldn't stop can't wait to listen to the next one !!!!!
"mundane and dull"
i found this book to be like 50 shades, but without consent, and as if it was written for people who found 50 too full on, would not recomend
"Unlike 50 Shades of Grey - lack of consent!"
I've read a few erotica books, 50 Shades being one of them, which I really enjoyed. Twist Me was my first venture into 'dark erotica'/ captive romance and frankly it wasn't for me. I don't quite understand how people can find the sex scenes in this book arousing in any way considering the lack of consent - it's essentially rape. This book is extremely different from 50 Shades of Grey and other BDSM books by one very important element - CONSENT! For once in my reading life I actually was fast forwarding the sex scenes. I enjoyed the storyline itself even if Julian's character was a bit 'flat' (I suppose the author wanted to create a 'mysterious enigma' thing for him, but this meant you simply do not get to know him at all). Remove all the sex/rape from this book and I would have really enjoyed the story. The narrator's voice at times got bit annoying.
"rubbish chap 16 ruined this book"
what aload of rubbish no research just babbling wrighting. a 18 year old virgin great home life never been hit beat or flogged never thought or craved or wanted any sort of bdsm now gets beaten where she is crying and screaming and then bam she loves it wants it omg what the he'll where did this come from chapter 16 should not have been written bdsm has no place with a 18 year old kind young female child who is still at school bad call
I enjoyed this book, the girl falls for her captor who in turn falls for her good read
"Dark and magnificent"
There was so much suspense, it was impossible to guess how the story would end.
While the heroine was more clear headed than most, and much more sympathetic, I found a very soft spot for the anti-hero, Julian. A true product of an appalling environment, he never seemed to be gratuitously evil; and as a magnetically-handsome hero, well, what more can one say.........
The narrator has an excellent range of 'voices' that help to distinguish between characters and an equally wide range of expression to enhance the emotions of each scene.
All in all, I thoroughly recommend this very adult book to everyone who looks for unputdownability in their reading.
