I know 5 stars on Amazon is supposed to mean "I love it" but that's not why I'm giving this book 5 stars. This is not a book that you are meant to like or to dislike, it just is what it is- kind of like Julian. I might be looking at this whole thing way to deeply or the author may be really clever but here is what i found:
This book puts you in the same exact head space as Nora. The whole time you read it, you look for something redeeming about it. You keep looking for Julian to love Nora, to have some higher moral calling, hell even just to be a decent human being but alas NONE of that happens. The only sympathetic view of Julian we get is from his long time house maid. Not even the parts of the book told from Julian's own POV make him sympathetic. Julian is pretty much a text book sociopath with strong sadistic tendencies. Any opportunity Julian has to prove that he has a clue about love serve only to provide evidence that he has no clue about love. We don't learn this slowly over the course of the book, no, from the first scenes, Julian is being...well, himself.
We as the reader, much like Nora, keep forgetting that he is nucking futs because the author draws us into this intriguing story that we keep thinking is a love story. That's how we, the readers, end up being just like Nora. Because as intriguing and compelling as this book is, there is nothing redeeming about the love story. It's not romance, it's fodder for psychoanalysis. It dark and twisty and crazy as hell and a part of me loved it and ate up every single page even as another part of me shook my head in disapproval. So you see, even though Nora is legit out of her mind throughout this book, I get where she's coming from because the way she felt about Julian is the way I felt about this book- I shouldn't love it but I do.
Books in the Twist Me Trilogy should be read in order:
Book 1: Twist Me
Book 2: Keep Me
Book 3: Hold Me
In Twist Me (book 1) recent high school graduate Nora Leston was kidnapped by heir and arms dealer Julian Esguerra. Amidst violence and rape, cocooned on a remote island, their attraction grew into more.
Keep Me (book 2) picks up after book 1’s serene ending. Nora is still fighting her feelings but committed to being with Julian. His obsession with her is fierce, their attraction undeniable with a reluctant romance brewing.
Secret pasts, conflicting emotions, intense attraction, inexplicable affection and terrorizing villains mar their journey for more…
JULIAN ESGUERRA: 29-32 years/Colombian/American/Heir/Arms dealer/Black hair/Blue eyes.
Seven words to describe Julian Esguerra: Determined, entitled, broken, flawed, ruthless, possessive and analytical.
NORA LESTON: 17-21 years/American/Student/Dark brown hair/Brown eyes/Virgin.
Seven words to describe Nora Leston: Stubborn, naïve, smart, determined, reckless, spirited and loyal.
Keep Me, told from dual POV’s, digs deeper into Julian’s past mitigating some of his darkness in their against-all-odds relationship. But ruthless villains lie in wait leading to danger and gruesome situations.
Book 2 ends with threats leading right to book 3 Hold Me for the conclusion of their story.
“I want to be her everything: her protector and her tormentor, her joy and her sorrow. I want to bind her to me physically and emotionally, to brand myself so deeply on her mind and soul that she will never think about leaving me.”

Would I recommend this series: Yes.
Would I re-read this series: Maybe later.
Would I read future books by this author: Yes.
A few months later I decided to give it another try and I started reading it once again. Maybe it was the fact that I was more prepared this time or that I had an idea of what was coming and what the book was about, but once I gave it chance, I literately could NOT put it down...Anna Zaires, the author of this series did a spectacular job of writing this book. She has a gift of drawing you in and making you feel like part of the story and considering that I started from not being able to read this book (due to its dark content) to basically devouring the whole series, to wanting more, I would say that is quite an accomplishment. Also, I would like to point out that if you are into Dark Stories, this is one of the BEST series I have read so far (and trust me when I say that after reading this series I tried to look for more dark stories and could not find anything in the same level as this one!) - Warning: This series is not for the faint of heart, it contains brutal scenes, kidnapping, rape, dominance...and still it is a beautifully written book worth reading if you can stomach such a thing...and through it all as "twisted" as it sounds like the first book's name "Twist Me" it is still a romance book (I use the term lightly), that follows a couple and their "love story" with a great HEA ending.
