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 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.
Laurel Carlson.
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?

I was a hunter, standing motionless in knee-deep water, spear in hand, ready for the kill. Bring on the sharks. I was ready for them to show me their rows of teeth.


Twisted is the first book in a new series involving the Chicago Underground and this book is definitely twisted.

I was hooked on this story from the beginning. I wanted to knew what was going on, who is behind everything, why are they doing it. I have about a million questions running through my mind and couldn’t stop reading because I wanted my answers.

I am also fascinated about Kader. From the bits and pieces we got throughout Twisted I know there is so much more to this man and to his story and I am DYING to find out! Laurel, there isn’t as much as a mystery to her, but I feel like there is more of her story we don’t know.

The chemistry between Kader and Laurel is undeniable, they tried to deny it, but you can only deal with the tension for so long before someone caves.

This story is fully of mystery and it is steamy. TWISTED does an AMAZING job of setting up the story and the plot for the following books in the series and I CANNOT WAIT to see what is in store next for Kader and Laurel.
