4 stars!

"Stunning was the only word I could use to describe her. Absolutely, undeniably stunning. I was screwed."

This prequel to Twisted Desire was a fast paced and short read. Loved reading what was going on in the minds of Penny and Tag the night Penny was abducted. Most books simply skim through the events leading up to the abduction, so this book was a nice change of pace!

Totally worth reading if you have read Twisted Desire!

My review: This was a very cute novella that sets the back group up for you in regards to Penny's kidnapping. You get a little insight into what Penny was like before the kidnapping, as well as some insight into Tag's mind. If you didn't know the twist before hand, yo

"Our world is no place for someone like Penelope Santoro."

I loved Twisted Desire, so when I heard that Laura was writing a prequel, I was so excited! I was so happy to learn how everything went down before Penny was kidnapped.

This also just made my love for Tag Reynolds even more abundant. Even though he didn't want to do this aduction, he wasn't going to let Penny be harmed. He was determined to get her out of his boss, Roman's, hands. It's amazing that he felt a connection to her from the star

Holy cow another hit out of the park for Laura Dunaway. This is the prequel to Twisted Desire. You meet Tag and Penny before what goes down on the boat.
Penny a college student in fashion design school has many friends. This one night will change her life forever. She has a best friend that gets kinda nasty to her and is jealous of her. She has a family that is close and they have money. She is shy but out going and sweet and beautiful girl. She meets Derek and what she thought was isn't.

I was given an ARC to leave an honest review.
We are given more detail into the night that changed Tag & Penny's life. You get POVs from them both, and what they were feeling & how they were interacting with everyone else that night. Tag was awesome, you saw him take charge of something he really didn't want to do, then once he had Penny in his arms, he'd do anything for her. Awesome job Laura Dunaway!!!!

I read this book after Twisted Desire and I'm really glad that I read it in that order. This was novella and it was able to bring to light some of the happenings of Twisted Desire. There was a lot of things brought to light in Twisted Desire and this did an excellent job answering questions you have had after reading the first book. I do hope that we will see Penny and Tag again. ...more

I just love Laura Dunaway! This book is a great accompaniment to Twisted Desire. I helped to get a better feel for Penny and Tag before the kidnapping. I can't wait to read more from Laura!

I was given an ARC for an honest review.

"I clicked on the images section and waited for it to load.

Once it did, my heart literally seized in my chest. It felt like it stopped for one-second, then beat faster and faster, like I’d run a long race. It pounded as I clicked on one of the few pictures on the screen. Once that showed up, I zoomed in to look at her face.

Stunning was the only word I could use to describe her.

Absolutely undeniably stunning.

Now I wasn’t sure whether to read this book first or book one first. So I plumped for this one!

This wasn’t your usual kidnap story. Yes there was a cartel of bad guys kidnapping and holding a beautiful girl hostage, but this wasn’t a story of kidnapping into sexual slavery so that made a change.

This is the story of how the kidnap happened. A short read but the author packed so much in, that you could be forgiven for thinking this is a much longer book.

I felt like I was holding my breath waiting

Can one night change everything? A night that was full of celebration that quickly turns into a nightmare of events.

Penelope Santoro had plans to celebrate her friend Kimberly’s twenty-first birthday. They were determined to make it a night worth remembering. As a dark handsome stranger approaches her, she is drawn to him. When Kimberly invites him to join the party things start to heat up.

Tag Reynolds was not there to celebrate he had a job to do. He had a

I loved this little prequel novella. Even though I already felt like I knew Penny in a personal level, Laura did an excellent job writing Who Penny was before being kidnapped. I love that she conveyed the sweet and innocent person that I always felt Penny to be in Twisted Desire. Penny was your typical college student only just a tad more innocent but still had all the same urges. This book definitely helped to understand Tag also...pre kidnapping.

Laura Dunaway does a wonderful j

This is a prequel to Twisted Desire. In this book we find out how she came to be on the yacht. We see that Kimberly her friend is a bitch even before hand and that Tag didn't really want to kidnap her in the first place. We get to find out the story of what happened before she wakes up, before she meets Tag. We get to find out how it all happened.
This is a great prequel to the story and I'm really glad that I got to read it I recommend reading this before the book itself as it helps along with
