Kidnapped. Taken to a private island.

I never thought this could happen to me. I never imagined one chance meeting on the eve of my eighteenth birthday could change my life so completely.

Now I belong to him. To Julian. To a man who is as ruthless as he is beautiful—a man whose touch makes me burn

Re-read 7/12/16: After finishing the The Krinar series last week, I felt like revisiting Julian and Nora...

Fuck it - 5 Stars

Because fun, quick, and oh how I love me some sociopath.

Seriously though, this is the start to an amazing series.

If you like captivity/kidnap themes with some Stockholm flavor, this book and series is for you.

I see a great potential in this book, but it fell completely flat to me. I think I could have liked it if I haven’t read Captive in the Dark. I couldn’t blame myself though, because this book was too tame and a bit boring as well. The characters were also dull. I had trouble connecting to either Nora and Julian.

Nora’s character isn’t interesting. She’s too plain and she constantly whines about her situation but in the end, she submits to Julian easily. I was also bothered about the fact that sh

Finally a book that captures everything I love about Dark Erotica! Intense, brutal but also so beautiful in it's darkness. The kind of story that stays with you long long after you close the last page...

This is the story of Nora, a soon to be 18 year old High School graduate. Nora goes out to a club with her best friend and there she meets Julian. She's immediately captivated by him as he's extremely good looking. But she also feels an undercurrent of fear when she looks at him, when he touches

Recommends it for: Taboo readers who can let go of reality for a minute
If you're a fan of taboo/kidnap/dark erotica, don't let my rating for Twist Me put you off from reading the book.

I think most people who read this category of book are generally somewhat willing to let go of reality in order to get lost in the story. I wish that I could be more like this.

I'm not even saying that I can't let it go at times. If this was absolutely impossible for me to do, I wouldn't ever read dark erotica, nor would I have ever rated other books in this category favorably (which

This was my first time reading this author. This story was good it reminded me of a few other series that I loved only this one a little something extra my only dislike was Nora was always in her head about what she shouldn't like and so forth. Nora is an 18 year old virgin who finds herself abducted and taken to an island by a mysterious stranger. The man who has taken her is captivating he is beyond handsome, wealthy, worldly, confident, dangerous, and controlling. Julian who is an arms dealer ...more

It's always the same way. The minute I read the word "KIDNAPPED" in a blurb, I instantly feel like I have to read that book. Immediately.



It's not a secret that I luuuuuuv reading Dark Erotica. One of my favourite authors, Kitty Thomas is to blame for that obsession. The day I read Comfort Food changed me forever. It sorta flipped a switch in me and now I was in love with books of that genre forever.

Twist Me is listed as a Dark Erotica too, which, in my humble opinion, is so not fair to some of

This series is one of the first dark books I've ever read. Actually, I think it was the second dark book I read and it was just at the right time because I discovered an author I loved and a series of books I'll continue to read whenever I feel the need to mentally go back to a time when everything was peaceful and simple in my life.

Nora and Julian's story is passionate and inspiring to me, especially as a writer myself, Anna's books has caused bombs in my brains and when I hit the keyboard, I h

4 Kidnapping Stars

Twist Me is an erotic novel with an abducting / BDSM theme. Basically, the kind of books I like to read. It’s no secret, I love BDSM books and if you throw in a kidnapping, I’m all over it. Every once in a while I like to read a “light” kidnapping book (if there is such a thing and there is!)

Nora meets a sexy stranger at a club one day and only exchanges a few words with him. Weeks later on a date with long time crush Jake. Nora is later kidnapped and wakes up on an island. Jul

What a story!! I admit to being a little leery around 20%.. I wasn't connecting with the story very much but then Bam! Things just took off and from that point I could not put this mind fuckery down! And for me.. it definitely was mind fuckery although not exactly "dark". I definitely enjoyed it. The story was extremely well written and Anna Zaires created a monster that I actually loathed for quite a while....and I rarely saw any redeeming qualities in Julian.. but there were just touches of so ...more

I may need a Dr myself after reading this book. Hold on to your emotions.

This is all I will say:

* Virgin (Nora)
* Kidnapping
* An Island Captivation (how thoughtful of him)
* Rape (he's very gentle)
* BDSM (he doesn't draw blood)
* crazy, sadistic, stalker, psycho (Julian @.@)
* Backstage Pass (this one is for you Boss Lady)
* Submission, Comsumption, Obsession
* Dark Romance

If all these facts don't get you to read it then it's either it's not your thing or there must be something wrong with you. Santo

This was a good read, I finished it in one day and enjoyed it. It's fast paced and fun, definitely something different.

The BDSM part was good and convincing enough, but the romance felt too weird for me
it was just too cheesy for me to handle that's why i'm not giving it more than 3 stars, I can't handle cheesy scenes.

The actions scenes were also pretty bad, thankfully it took only few pages, but this is mostly a bdsm book, in that department it did pretty well for me

1.5 I did not enjoy this.
description

Had me rolling my eyes the entire time...

First, the characters were completely unrelatable unless you count Julian's obsession with Nora because she looks like someone...

He solely brings her on the island to be used as a sex toy. I mean this is a romance/erotica kidnapping. I get that. Besides the fact that it irked me that she was barely 18 to begin with, I didn't like her at all. I found her to be boring, a little annoying and a bit fickle.

Sure, the pacing was slow,

I was also in conflict with my thoughts weather to give this book a 3 or 4 star rating.
In the end, I went with 4 because this author is really, really good.
Technically, there isn't a one thing about the writing style that I didn't like.

Okay, I definitely have mixed feelings about this one. For someone who doesn't want to be touched, she sure as hell gives in really quick.

"my treacherous body" this, "my treacherous body" that. I could make a drinking game on how many times she said those three words.

Then, theres's the fact that she always does the opposite. In her head, she says, "I shouldn't eat" BUT "I'm hungry" so she eats.
Again, "I shouldn't be enjoying the beach while my parents are grieving" BUT
