Our "hero" Julian, what a sadistic, controlling, emotionally vacant person. This is your "typical" love story (cough cough) boy sees girl boy thinks she looks like his dead girlfriend, boy kidnaps girl takes her to island in the South Pacific and keeps her there for over a year. During that year he rapes her, beats her (he's a sadist) and threatens her into behaving by threatening the innocent lives of others....that's just the first book...I'm not even going to talk about second two. Like I said, he is a controlling, obsessive, sadistic psychopath....sure he had a horrible childhood but damn. Julian was never going to be normal because of his upbringing, NEVER! He's a criminal. Ok, enough of his bad qualities, his good ones are that he's hot, rich and has a big penis...I mean it, that's it. He is a despicable character, he's obsessed with the girl and doesn't realize that what he feels is love. With even all that the author manages to make his character almost (a big almost) sympathetic. When we see things from his POV, you can see how he thinks and because of that you can see just how (expletive deleted) he is.
The heroine Nora, wow! Poor girl, talk about wrong place, wrong time. She is kidnapped, raped multiple times, beaten and is made to endure psychological trauma. From the beginning she trys to think of ways to get away, trys to remain strong but really in situations like that it'd be hard for anyone. She develops Stockholm Syndrome and starts to love and need her capturer, some would think that that is being weak but double damn, how would anyone remain mentally strong. She's an innocent, caring, strong willed person who's in a hopeless situation and who makes the best out of it. (If that can be possible)
There are people in this world who are just like Julian, uncaring and unfeeling, people who kill innocent people, people who kill whole families as a message to keep others in line or for revenge. There are people in this world who have no compunction in taking what they want, no matter who it affects. This book does not flinch away from this reality and presents this in a heartbreaking way and even though I will think about the characters often, I don't know if I could read it again anytime soon.
In attempting to gather my thoughts on how I should proceed in my review I had conflicting views, I couldn't quite do it and I'm sure at some point(s) I will edit this review. It is a captivating read, you can't but help but think about the characters and try to imagine yourself in that situation and what you would do if you were in Nora's situation. I would recommend this book but beware it is heartbreaking and a hard read. There is a "happily " ever after but the journey, man, what a terrifying ride.
TWIST ME: The Complete Trilogy by Anna Zaires is hands down the most spellbinding series I have ever read! Addictive and passionate, dark and twisted, filled with tantalizing romance, palpable danger, thrilling suspense and SCORCHING HOT sensuality...it is a MUST read!!!!
Ms. Zaires narrative is absolutely breathtaking, and she weaves an intricate plot that is beautifully complex, richly nuanced and epically grand in scope. So much happens throughout, it is impossible to fully encapsulate. But at its heart, this is a wildly passionate tale of dark, obsessive love that ignites between a ruthless, world renowned arms dealer and the innocent, pure-hearted beauty he kidnaps at 17 and spirits away to his remote private island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
TWIST ME features my fave anti-hero EVER, and, in my opinion, Julian Esguerra is unrivaled!! He is dark and predatory, insanely possessive, deliciously dominant and so fiercely protective he leaves me all aquiver!
Larger than life and lethally handsome with dark hair, chiseled features, a powerful physique and glittering blue eyes, Julian rules his vast empire with an iron fist and he is MERCILESS with his enemies. Especially when he is backed into a corner or those in his inner circle are put in harm’s way.
Julian is so powerful magnetic, in fact, is it any wonder why fans are so hopelessly smitten with him? What draws me to him, beyond his potent sex appeal and commanding presence, is how totally and utterly consumed he is with Nora! Through the course of the trilogy he conditions his beautiful prisoner to bend to his will, to love and depend on him so completely that she not only becomes his willing captive but cannot bear to live without him.
Although he has an exquisitely gentle side, Julian is NOT s man to be crossed, and spells out his intentions toward his bewitching captive from the start. She is his ....forever. There will be no escape.
“You are mine for the rest of your life,” he whispers harshly, the warmth of his breath making my skin prickle with goosebumps. “Do you understand me, Nora? All of you… It’s all mine to use and abuse as I will. I own you, inside and out, in every way possible…”
He'd always planned on owning her, to get her to submit to his will and satisfy his every carnal desire, to be his adoring, obedient pet. Every move was coldly calculated and calmly methodical. He wanted to break her so he could put her back together.
“I gather her against me, knowing she needs tenderness after brutality. And in a way, I need it too. I need to comfort her, to soothe her. To bind her to me when she’s at her most vulnerable, so I can ensure her love."
But he never envisioned falling desperately in love in the process. But love her he did. With every beat of his dark, damaged, diabolical heart. In essence, Nora became the center of his universe. Every breath she took belonged to him, and her happiness, safety and well-being superseded EVERYTHING.
“I will give you the world, my pet. The whole effing world—just as long as you’re mine.”
While Julian does have his darker, sadistic tendencies, there is a raw, primal tenderness to him that just melts me!! His evolution from cruel, sadistic captor to darkly besotted husband and lover was such a gloriously thing to hold. But at his core he retained his same ruthlessly sinister edge. He made no excuses—or apologies--for the choices he made. He wanted Nora, so he took her. End of story. And in the process he stole the heart of countless fans.
As it turns out, his docile pet is hardly “docile” after all. On the contrary, she is a warrior in her own right. And although in the early days the young spitfire fights tooth and nail against her forced captivity, through the course of the story Nora not only comes to accept her new reality but thrives on it and she soon comes so deeply entrenched in the dark, violent world Julian inhabits that her soul does not emerge unscathed. She soon comes to crave the primitive pleasure and torrid brutality that once terrified her the most. Before long, the two are so inexorably intertwined she needs both in equal measure.
"Julian has tapped into that dark, secret part of myself that is a mirror image of his own twisted desires. It’s a part of me that longs to give up control, to lose myself completely and just be his."
This couple faces much danger and heartache, and many trials and tribulations along the way, and their addiction to one another is so overpowering they would literally walk through fire to save one another. Ms. Zaire never missed a single beat with the book. The erotic interludes were tastefully choreographed, scintillating—and plentiful!--and every plot point was brilliantly executed and so palpable it often left me gasping for breath. And the HEA ending? EPIC!!!!!!! The perfectly fitting ending for this beloved couple’s amazing journey…a journey that was filled with love and lust, pain and loss, but finally triumphs against ALL ODDS!!
In closing, I was consumed from start to finish by this sumptuous, high octane romantic thriller, masterfully penned by the exceptionally talented Anna Zaires, about a dark, twisted love affair that defies logic and reason, and is guaranteed to hold my heart forever captive!
Some of the things Julian do to Nora is unbelievable, even though, it is fiction, but it is sicken. Why she remains with him is beyond me. Anna is a great writer and I bought this book because of Korum and Mia story, but this one - "twist me" is really twisted.
