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.

Hi My name is Rae and i love to read and also a very shy person.
Yes! I would listen to Twist Me again. I would definitely recommend this to everyone who love dark romance books.
All of it. I got to even listen with the audiobook. And it made it even better then before.
Nora. She was amazing when she was performing as Nora.
Wow let me tell you this. This book made me laugh so hard and I even cry in the middle of the book. I really love this book.
If you love Anna Zaires books then I remembered to those who have not read or listen to the audiobook. Should really read this book if you like dark romance books like me.
I'm addicted to audiobooks, particularly thrillers and erotic reads. I'd love for you to follow my reviews!
I couldn't relate to the heroine in this book. The writing and narration were good, but I can't imagine being a woman completely removed from her life with nothing else but a guy who kidnapped her coming to visit her for sex and that being enough for her. Talk about somebody who needs a life! I realize this was what the book was about, but it wasn't for me. I need MORE from my romances and storylines. It seemed like a rehashing of Twilight/50 Shades with kidnapping thrown in for good measure.
I am a 46 year old woman who works at a Life Insurance Company and I love to listen to books to make my days go by faster.
i want more than sex in a book. This is boring to me. Couldn't finish
I am a lover of books. I enjoy losing myself in a fabulous romance and great story plot.
I can't explain why I decided to read/listen to this book. I'm not at all into kidnapping books and I felt sick at the idea of romanticizing the awful tragedy of being taken against your will. So let me tell you---this book was an experience for me!!! It's one in which you hate to admit you liked it. In fact, it was intriguing to me. This book is very well written, and the emotional conflict of the heroine, Nora is portrayed very well. And, how can Nora not be conflicted as she is taken away from all she knew and whisked off to a tropical island where she was subjected to a sexual world she never volunteered for? Her captor, Julian remains somewhat of a mystery, even though he does share some aspects of his life. I would assume we will learn more about Julian in Book 2. Nora describes Julian as a dark angel with great wealth and who she is drawn to (since she first met him), but she knows he's dark and can't help but get sucked into his black hole. Just as reviewers on goodreads and other sites have indicated this book is very similar to the concepts of 50 Shades of Grey. Yet, there's no doubt Nora was held captive, but what she never expected was to fall, irrevocably, in love with her captor Julian. Julian has a complicated and traumatic background and he has decided against going the traditional route in wooing Nora and has decided almost like caveman-style on steroids to take her and make her his. This is also irrevocable. This book is dark, it's painful, erotic and definitely well-written. AZ has created two characters who become inseparable and there's no going back. I can't romanticize this aspect, it is what it is.
Narrator: I thought the narrator was excellent. Shirl Rae performed very well.
I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
If, I hadn't read that little teaser for the next book I wouldn't be torn. I would have, straight out, not liked this book because Julian did really ugly things to Nora and she was just wide open accepting and enjoying everything (with one or two half-hearted rebellion attempts). I was never convinced that he had any feelings for her as an individual person, it was all about him and his dead friend. He successfully moulded her into his pet and that was what he called. She looked like someone he had loved and he made her into his sexual plaything, moulded her entire identity, sexual and otherwise. She wasn't the least bit concerned about her parents or anything else afterwards.
But with the teaser, the author does allude to the fact that Julian is well aware of what he has done to this malleable girl, she believes she loves him. I was torn between 2 or 4 stars, but it's a romance book, so I don't think the really dark potential of the story will be realised.
There wasn't a lot of dialogue, so in my opinion you don't get to see the relationship building, which in this case you really, really needed it. You as the listener are left asking who Nora is anyway, we never actually knew her to start off with.
Nora (h) has just turned 18 years old. A few days after her high school graduation, Julian (H), a 29 year old man, kidnaps Nora and takes her to his private island. Julian keeps Nora captive on his island for approximately 15 months. In those months Nora is repeatedly raped, spanked, whipped, kept isolated, controlled, and psychologically and sexually conditioned. I really found her age and the lack of consent really disturbing.
Shirl Rae was, IMHO flat, monotone and lacked any emotion with the delivery of the story.
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.
Love to read novels during my down time. Love listening to audiobooks while driving or working or whenever I'm not reading or sleeping.
Title says it all. Loved this story as an ebook, really love it as an audiobook. Narration was beautifully performed.
if Anna wrote, it can't be bad. this story had everything I was looking for, dark romance, rape (its my thing), love, action, some of the best sex scenes I've ever read. her attention to detail is amazing. if you love dark romance, this book is a must.
The characters had no personalities or development throughout the story. I read erotic sexy novels all the time and this one just didn't cut it at all. The "sex scenes " that are awfully written were cringe worthy and I rolled my eyes so many times. The background stories for the characters are childish and completely uninteresting. I have never not been able to finish an audio book and have never returned one but this will be my first for both. The narrator is just ok but doesn't really have any emotions. I would save money and the time on this one.
