REVIEW: Twisted by Aleatha Romig
The underworld of Chicago is far from forgiving.
It’s a world where knowledge means power, power money, and money everything.
While I paid the ultimate price to have it all, it wasn’t my decision to give up my life.
That doesn’t mean I ceased to exist, only to live.
Going where the job takes me and living in the shadows, with deadly accuracy I utilize the skills inherent to me, not knowing from where they came, not recalling what I’d lost.
And then I saw her.
I shouldn’t want her, desire her, or need her, yet with each sighting I know she is exactly what I have to have. Laurel has the ability to do what I thought was impossible. She sees what others don’t.
My gut tells me that it’s a deadly mistake to change my plans and open my world to her. My mind says she’ll be repulsed by my twisted existence.
None of that matters, because my body won’t take no for an answer.
I’ve made dangerous mistakes before.
This time, will the price be too high?

Twisted was like nothing I'd ever read before, so intelligently written and an intricately woven storyline with incredibly complex main characters and side characters.
Twisted is the first book in the Tangled Web series about Dr Laurel Carlson and Kader, the plot involves medical research that Dr Carlson and her team have spent the majority of the past few years working on. The medical research is ground breaking and depending who controls it, could be used for good or bad.
As with all Trilogies, Twisted was the building book. It set the scene and introduced the characters that would be involved in the remainder of the trilogy. Twisted was packed with a lot of information and you're thrown right into the middle of the story from the first page. Laurel and Kader have an instant connection, and Kader finds himself breaking his rules he's lived by for so long to help Laurel. Both Kader and Laurel have complex pasts that are hinted at during Twisted.
Twisted was my first Aleatha Romig book and I wasn't really sure what to expect, I'd heard incredible things about her writing so I knew I had to give her a go. I found Twisted interesting but also slightly above my head meaning, I struggled to stay within the story. While I really enjoyed her writing style, I wasn't able to fully get into the story. I found some parts of Twisted really interesting and other parts hard to follow, overall the writing was impeccable and I definitely will be reading more of Aleatha's books.
The Tangled Web Series Continues with...
Everything changed the night our eyes met across the room.
His green gaze upon me prickled my skin with uncustomary warmth while my peek beneath his cuff—of a riot of color on his wrist—sparked my insatiable curiosity. Tall and mysterious, Kader was a man whose secrets I longed to know.
Little did I realize that the night we met was only the beginning—the beginning to the end of the existence I knew.
What will happen as his assignment becomes our obsession?
