Review: Twisted by Callie Hart

Twisted (Blood & Roses #5)
by Callie Hart
Genre: Dark Romance/ Suspense

How many times can a person fall down and still get back up? How many times can things go wrong before you just give up?

I’ve lost everything. My home, my job, my purpose in life—everything has been turned upside down. But while life hasn’t exactly turned out the way I would have liked it to, I wouldn’t change a thing. If things were different, I wouldn’t have Lacey. I wouldn’t have Michael. 

But most importantly, I wouldn’t have him

I’ve realized what I feel. He knew it before I did. Only one question remains: 

Is he capable of feeling the same way?


Secrets are a prison, and I have been behind bars for years. Sloane Romera has been turning keys in all of my locks, throwing light on corners of my mind that I thought would forever be shrouded in darkness. Or at least I had hoped would be. 

I have done so many wrongs in this life, and yet this woman has forgiven me. She’s done something I never thought possible—she has learned to understand me, and she hasn’t run. She’s amazed me. She’s saved me. She’s fallen in love with me. 

If it’s within my power, I’m about to do the same for her.

You know what I love? A series that grows book after book; a series whose character grow book by book; a series that keeps surprising me book after book, page after page. That's what Callie's series is doing to me - she makes me fall in love all over again whenever I open a new book of hers. Her books are full with surprises. You think her characters are black and white, that you figured it all out...ha, no you haven't. In the 5th book she added some interesting twists and turns in it that made me gasp -whether it was how certain characters reacted, secrets that got told and shared, or just by how her main characters -Zeth and Sloane - have grown. Twisted never got boring or was filled with dull moments. It seems everything in her books serves a purpose so it'd be wise to pay attention. With her latest release she showed her readers what to expect from her in near future - books that will exceed your expectations and are filled with unlikely but very intoxicating male characters who make lure you in. 
**If you're new to her series make sure you read my previous review (see bottom of the page!) so you know what's going on ;) **

I loved that it started with a prologue that made my heart break for Zeth; we got a glimpse of his childhood, better one of his two only memories and I just wanted to hug him hard and never let go. It also made me beyond curious how Zeth ended up the way he did. Callie played well with my mind and emotions by starting the book with a dream... a dream that you'll keep thinking about throughout the book. I can't tell more because duuh, you've to read the other books. All I can say is that at one point you gonna say: "Noooo, that can't be! No no no, he can't be THAT to him." Yup, you wanna ignore this nagging feeling that you're wrong and it's how it's - damn you Callie. After everything Zeth has been through you throw him THAT curve-ball ?!? Not fair...but yeah, the truth is ugly ladies. 

"I will ruin this. I will lose. I will hurt her and I can't be trusted, and I am too fucked up to cope..."

Poor Zeth he's still fighting with himself to fully allow himself to feel. His inner demon won't let lose and he can't hurt the only person that has a chance to fully crack him open, Sloane.I loooove their time together - no matter if it were stolen glances, untold feelings, or the full-blown sex they had. Gaah I envy her!! Zeth is as usual smoking hot and if you think just because he shows on occasion emotions he's still  brutal and would do anything to protect Sloane and Lacey. 

"What are you afraid of, Zeth? 
Why am I scaring you so badly right now? It's not like I'm expecting you to say it back."
"I'm not scared of you, Sloane."
"Yes, you are. Of course you are. You're terrified."

I love to read about characters that open up more step by step, wanting to give and take chance. This book made me truly connect with Zeth thanks to his equal share of pov in the book. I loved him as a mystery but now I love him even more because I can feel for him.

As said, this book is full of surprise -shocking as well as extremely pleasant ones - and if you like Michael in the book you'll be pleased to know that he has one chapter of his own. In this chapter you'll find out more who Rebel is, kind of giving you a slight introduction to Callie's next series.

It's hard to write a review for a fifths book in a series, thus I hope you understand I can't give away too much, just that I didn't want it to end and was glued to my kindle. It was a thrilling read; this time not because of the violence but due to the emotional depths and the secrets that got undiscovered. Oooh this book will make you truly happy, trust me. I squealed like a little girl about certain scenes and screamed YES, FINALLY! If you enjoyed the other books you'll love this one, I'm pretty sure.

"Not yet,"he growls. "I'm not done with you. Fuck, Sloane, your mouth has always been perfect when it's been on my cock, but... " hehe I know I'm a tease ;)
