Dark and Twisted
Jewels and Panties (Book, Four): Twisted... Jewels and Panties (Book, Four): Twisted Love - Brooke Kinsley

Twisted Love is certainly a suitable title for this one! The twists and turns in this series just get darker all the time. We do get a few answers in this one, but those answers lead to more questions as some new characters enter the tale and their motives may be more than they let on. Just when I think this series can't possibly get more twisted, Brooke Kinsley proves me wrong! It is an ongoing series, so there are cliffhangers and this one just blew my mind!

Mayhem (A Twisted Hearts Love Story, #2) - Autumn Sand

I read Bedlam, the first book in the Twisted Hearts Love Story series, which for me was an ok read. I had it in my intention to read Mayhem, the second book in the series, but never got around to it. Thanks to Quirky Blind Date, I finally got the chance to take it off my TBR list and placed it on my read list.

 

 

First off, I have to say that I enjoyed this instalment more than I did the first one. Please note that reading Bedlam before Mayhem is not necessary, however, the characters from book 1 make an appearance in the second instalment.

 

I enjoyed the story line, which is not typical of what one would come to expect from romance novels. Romance, suspense, and drama permeated the pages of the book and it was enough to keep me entertained. The story pulled me in from the first page and at that moment Dante, aka Tick captured my heart. When I met him in Bedlam he did nothing for me, but learning about him in this instalment changed my entire perspective about him.

 

The protagonists were dynamic. They were two broken souls living in the pain of their past. Dante lived his life constantly in a prison of his own making. He blamed himself for the loss of his family, even though it was beyond his control. He has lived with this guilt for 10 years. I could relate to him on this matter, having lost someone who was very dear to me. I know first-hand how easy it is to blame ourselves, believing we did not do enough.

 

Cyma (An unusual name) has been through hell and back. I understood her fears as it relates to getting involved with Dante. I did not blame her after all she had been through its only logical. I admired her strength and independence. I did not like how she almost allowed her pride to prevent from accepting help to save her daughter.

 

I found the situation with Cyma's daughter heartbreaking. I empathized with Cyma, having to watch her daughter deteriorating before her eyes, not sure if she will be able to get her help in time. There was a point when I thought all hope may have been lost, but then things turned around for the better. That made my heart leap with joy.

 

I liked almost everything about this book, except for the part where Dante in practically every thought he had about Cyma kept saying 'My woman'. I did not see the need to reiterate it.

 

Verdict

Mayhem was a heartwarming story about two broken souls who never expected to have a second chance at love. It was a captivating read from start to finish. It is a story about loss, love, and rebirth. It demonstrates that grieving the loss of loved ones is natural, but we should not allow it to consume us. It also shows that accepting help does not take away from our independence. We all need help at some time in our lives as 'no man is an island, and no man stands alone'.

"True, Undying Love: A Twisted Love Story" by Ms. T. Nicole

My Thoughts...

I will say the title says it all "True, Undying Love: A Twisted Love Story" was definitely one good fast paced urban romance story. What a dream Lex Jr. was having! The story definitely was given some of that 'Bonnie and Clyde'...featuring Lex and Treasure! We were given quite a suspenseful intriguing TWISTED read that I couldn't stop reading it until the end and then I was left with that epilogue only wanting more of this story about Lex Jr, Lex III, and Treasure. There are just too many unanswered questions we need answers to! So, yes I would love to see a spin off from this read. This author has done her thing once again and that is leaving her readers wanting more.

Thank you to the author for the gift of your novel for my giving my honest opinion of the read.

Fantastic
Love, Lies and Alibis (Twisted Sisters Club) - Deb Julienne

Love, Lies and Alabis is my first book by Deb Julienne and it is a fantastic read.  I enjoyed the suspense, shenanigans and sizzle from cover to cover.  Love, Lies and Alabis is a well written book, very smooth  reading.  Kat and Ben's story is loaded with awesome characters and they are my favorite part of the book.  Love, Lies and Alibis is part of the Twisted Sisters Series but can easily be read as a standalone.  I look forward to reading more from Deb Julienne in the future.

 

I won a copy of this book.

[CHINESE BL NOVEL] Hua Hua You Long [花花遊龍] by Xing Bao Ni [星寶兒]
Hua Hua You Long - Xing Bao Ni

Sadistic lover. A devil with the face of an angel. A twisted romance of brutal and dysfunctional relationship. Be ready for multiple stab wounds on your poor heart.

 

This book left a bitter aftertaste. Yet I am appreciative of the author's skill at manipulating the fragile human heart. I am also grateful for the author's effort to keep the story real. So real, it left an indelible mark on my mind. To me this meant the author is successful in his/her work since their main aim should be to grasp the reader's mind and mold it to their own desired shape. A book that is able to control the psyche of its reader is a winner. That's how I see it. And this book had subjected me to various onslaught of intense emotions of amusement, joy, fear, anger, sadness, disgust, frustration, anticipation, surprise, expectation and last but not least love. Yes, love even-though this is a very brutal romance story which I had nearly lost hope of finding a flicker of romance within its pages. Some might reject the ideal of romance in this story due to Jing's (seme/antagonist) violent and selfish way of pursuing love and also Lu Cang's (uke/protagonist) seemingly masochist acceptance of abuse from his lover. To be fair, I too could not exactly shake off the possibility of Stockholm Syndrome in play as I did find it hard to see how Lu Cang as broken as a battered rag doll could ever find in his heart to forgive Jing's incessant cruelty upon this mind and body. Nevertheless how ever twisted their love is, love is still the catalyst of their tragedious joining. Sigh such highly dysfunctional relationship this pair has. I am still worried for Lu Cang's future even upon finishing the book. Afterall, to serve the king is like accompanying a tiger. (famous Chinese proverb).

 

The version I read was in Chinese Text via TTS (text-to-speech). If you are interested, you could try the fan translations in English here: [Click Me]. I am not sure how the translation fairs but I do believe the real thing is surely better than a translated copy. For the record, I have read the manga adaptation up to volume no. 5 and am keen on reading its next installment. The artwork is not bad and so far the story sticks with the original novel.
