But that all changed when he was wrongfully accused of rape. And now, after five years in prison and the loss of everything he cared about, he wanted revenge.

Bex (Beckie Bookworm)

This was an ok read and the writing itself was fine just a bit boring, it also isn’t a dark read far from it.
The idea was imaginative a man seeking revenge over a woman he assumes has wrecked his life and career sending him to prison which was really horrific and especially considering all he has endured while locked away for a crime he was innocent of rape.
But in a case of mistaken identity, he kidnaps the wrong woman and no matter how much she professes her innocence he doesn’t believe her.

Roughly six years ago, Mason’s life was torn apart. Accused of a crime he didn’t commit, he lost everything. But it wasn’t just losing his life as a doctor, spending most of his money on legal expenses... it was living in a prison, and what his ‘crime’ caused him to experience while locked away. But now he’s free and the woman that accused him, well it’s her turn to experience her own prison and humiliation.

Kat didn’t have an easy life, but she was a fighter. Life threw everything it could at he

My rating has nothing to do with the writing; on the contrary, I think it was flawless. It probably has more to do with style and plot.

When I first read the blurb I thought this book was going to be a dark romance.

The prologue had me, I was so interested, but then I lose interest so fast!

There was no point to this story.
Also this is not a dark romance.
It's as if the author tried to make him an anti-hero i.e. kidnapping and punishment, BUT he was NEVER that guy.

Had a HUGE potential.. until it started sounding really familiar. And when I say familiar, I mean that in terms of the good ol' phrases that's been used before. Been there, done that. It was predictable.. and I mean, really predictable.

Loved this book! Was definitely a page turner and I couldn't put it down. What a great plot and twist in the story. I definitely do not feel like I've read something similar. And with so many books out, that is hard to do. Looking forward to more of D.C. Renee's future books! ...more

~~ 4.5 "Twisted Revenge" Stars ~~

I'll start by saying that I really liked this story. I was truly intrigued and attracted to this book after reading the synopsis. I was a little scared about how dark this book might get after the description of it, but I am happy to say that it isn't a dark read at all. This book deals with a kidnapping storyline, revenge, and a case of mistaken identity.

The synopsis had me from the start , I could not wait to tear into this and find out what the heck was going on.

Mason is convinced he has the girl that ruined his life , under his control , at his home , acting as his personal slave as a form of payback for the years he spent in prison after she accused him of RAPE. The only problem is , Kat has no clue what he is talking about , or who he is ?? He thinks she is lying and she thinks he has a case of mistaken identity.

Even though the overall premise of this book isn't something I'd normal read, I still really enjoyed it.

My favorite thing about this book is the character development. Each character has crazy good development and each character is really, really well written. Let Me Go has some the best written characters that I've ever read about.

The plot is really well paced and I was very bored while reading. The writing style is really great. Everything about this book is really well written. I can't stre

This sweet mysterious story just took me by complete surprise. Going in I figured there would be some pretty dark moments between the hero and heroine even though the author did say it's not a dark romance. After all he did kidnap her. But what I found was a broken man dead set on revenge but without the evil inside to really carry out the punishment. Instead he trie

This book is unbelievably brilliant. It broke my heart at the pain and anguish rolling off Mason, and the hurt and confusion coming from Kat. You can’t help but open your heart to this unlikely hero even if he’s a stubborn and at times frustrating individual with his unshakable resolve that he has the right woman. Kat is just brilliant, she’s feisty and determined that no matter what happens she will not break. But it’s her kindheartedness that really wraps y

This story was the most frustrating read I've read in a long a GOOD way people. Never have I wanted 2 people to see past their own issues than Mason and Kat. Mason is a tortured soul who was went through hell and no wants revenge. He was a good person, with an excellent career, he had the world by the balls, then the accusation.
Kat feels like her world is falling apart. Her boyfriend is a schlub, she has no job, and no money. What happens next will change her life forever.

First off, I would give this book more than 5 stars if it would let me :)I was very happy to have stumbled across this great author and had it read in like two days.

From the description I was figuring it was going to be another dark read, which is the trend I'm into right now and what I was actually looking for, but it ended up not really being that way at all. I wasn't disappointed either. This book was unlike any book I've read so far and that is what made me love it so much. It was a nice

Now I must say yes I’m your typical judge a book by its cover type of girl, what I mean by that is it doesn't matter if a book has a good synopsis, if the cover has not caught my eye then I don’t normally read it, but with this book I saw the synopsis way before the cover came out. I was so drawn into the story.

Mason Tredwell had it all. looks, money, a brilliant career, women till one day he had it all taken away from him and is wrongly accused of rape after five years in prison the only thing

The story is about Mason a man hell bent on revenge against the woman who wrongly accused him of rape, and ended up taking away all he had accomplished in life with one lie.
After spending 5 years in prison for a crime he didn't commit, Mason wants to get the woman who turned his life into pure hell to pay for what she did to him, what better way to make her pay than humiliate her and degrade her the same treatment he received in prison. Kat doesn't understand why Mason would choose her to put h

This book is packed full of suspense, drama, love, heartbreak, and so many more emotions. I started reading this one late one night, planning on just reading a couple of chapters before I went to sleep, the next thing I knew the sun was coming up and I was just about finished with this book. There was no way I could put it down once I started reading.

The main characters, Kat and Mason, have such a strong dynamic between them that you are just drawn to them from the start. Even when I didn’t ag

Kat and Mason! Wow! Just Wow! I'm soooooooo in love with them that I've read and re-read the book so many times, I've lost count. This book has it all - angst, drama, passion, love, and even revenge. I felt bad for both Kat and Mason because they were dealt shitty hands in life. The way they chose to confront them though, was completely different. Kat was determined but shy, except when push came to shove, she didn't back down without a fight. Mason was the perfect blend of broken and vulnerable ...more

Rachel's 4.5 Stars

This story was awesome! DC Renee has a wonderful way with words, and you really feel for Kat and especially Mason when he's not being a dick. You yell in your "thinking voice" at them, trying to help them see past all the hurt and lies and feel connected to them, their characters so fully developed, you can't help but see them as "real". This novel is SO engaging, I really didn't want to put it down. There were times I had tears slipping down my face. My h

This book had an unusual plot with rape, revenge and kidnapping at it's core. I'm not entirely sure that it'd be a true life scenario. If it were then I feel that they'd both be more strong willed as in Kat just seemed to roll over and accept her fate and he wasn't forceful enough which therefore made it unbelievable. However, I did enjoy the book and in places it made me laugh when Kat and Mason sparred with each other. At times it made me cry, especially what Mason went through. There were no ...more

I was provided this book in order to come up with some teaser pics for when the book is released. And let me say, the minute I started this book I was hooked. This indeed is a combination of dark & soft kinda read. It started out like something you would hear from a Law and Order SVU episode to more of a Lifetime TV movie. The book did not leave me with unanswered questions nor confusion. This is a book that I would recommend to my book friends, this is a type of book that is right up my alley. ...more
