Just how Twisted is he?


Gone. I lost my mind that day.
I arrived home, to my wife’s sweet color, stripped. Her body motionless, slain in a puddle of blood, her delicate skin, riddled with multiple stab wounds. The brutality of the rape was horrendous. My precious little girl lain in the middle of the floor, pillow securely duct taped on her face. Her tiny body, left unm

I am a devoted fan of Sapphire Knight! Twist (our H) was a broken angry man after the murder of his wife and child. I love how he was blindsided by Sadie when she sought refuge at her brothers club from her abusive ex. Twist fought his attraction for Sadie because of his demons but nothing could stop that love. He was true to her, never cheated stayed by her and her son's side. I would have liked more of a epilogue but I'm hoping we get more books in this series with updates.
He had lost everything but he found a rough companionship with his brothers in the Oath Keepers MC. Twist knows not everyone understands or even tries to get him, but he lives in his hollow existence day to day just biding time until his existence is no more.

Sadie has decided to leave California and head to her brother who is part of the Oath Keepers MC. Sadie is pregnant and the father made it more than obvious he wanted nothing to do with her or the baby. Sadie is just trying to find her way

Every time I pick up a new book from Sapphire Knight, I get a sudden rush of anxiety. I begin to worry...not about how good the book will be, far from it actually. But I worry about how I'm going to feel after my emotions will be put through a grinder, over and over again. And after every book, I know I worried for no reason. I would experience everything all over again!

And no matter how hard I tried to prepare myself, Friction left me gutted unlike any previous Oath Keepers book has before. Eve

(4.5 stars)

Twist is one of the more "scary" members of the Oath Keepers MC; he keeps to himself, he's moody, and he earned his road name by being "Twisted in the head", especially when it comes to fighting for his club. All this causes 2 Piece, and himself actually, to feel he's nowhere near good enough to be the support that 2 Piece's sister, Sadie, needs when she turns up at the MC's door... pregnant.

When Sadie gets him to open up though, we get to see Twist's sweet, caring,

Ohh Sapphire you are just amazing!. Before I start my unspoiled review I want to strongly recommend that my reading Junkies pick up the other books in the series, so you all can have the full feel of this wonderful series and get to know all the other amazing characters stories. You have to remember that most of the books and stories are all intertwined together. So with that being said here we go.....

Twist back story is so heartbreaking I balled during the whole prologue it was horrible. I can't believe a man could go thru all of that and come out so strong. He has his broken parts but dam he is still so strong.

If you have read the other books you know Sadie is 2 Piece's sister she comes running to him because she is pregnant and the baby daddy is MIA. She runs into Twist when she first gets to the club

Oh My God, I freaking loved this book!!! It gets harder and harder to pick just one favorite of Sapphire's, wait actually I couldn't really do it if asked. I can say that this has become another favorite of mine that Sapphire has written. You will love this book. I wasn't sure about Twist because he always come across as a bit crazy and mean but once we get more of him and learn his back story it will change your view on him. I fell in love with Twist. You will love the relationship that Sadie a ...more

I knew Twist's story would be heartbreaking & tragic & it definitely was, but it was so much more.
Sadie was wonderful, she was sassy & fit in just fine with the other ol' ladies, but there were glimpses of a gentler Sadie. I can definitely see the appeal & why she gravitated towards Twist from the beginning.

Holy heartbreak!

I mean where do you begin with this book. So much sadness from the get go.

Twist is a damaged, broken man who is vengeful.

Sadie is a woman wronged and sets out to start new, with the help of her brother.

These two are amazing, light and dark, can they help each other? Without giving spoilers I will say that this book was amazing and drew me in just from the blurb and that rarely happens, ever. I was not disappointed in the least.

Sapphire Knight, thank you you a

Friction by Sapphire Knight is a gripping MC novel full of graphic language and adult situations. It's audience is definitely an 18+ one.

I was gifted this book as an ARC for an honest review and to be honest I wasn't sure what to expect. This is the first of Sapphire's books that I have had the opportunity of reading. Not to say I haven't wanted to, as I have a collection of her books on my kindle ready for me to indulge in.

It is always a pleasure to watch someone prefect their craft. As a writer, Sapphire Knight continues to build upon her skills to bring to life amazing and raw characters who bring out the feels in her readers. She has gifted readers with a look at the MC world in which members become family and their loyalty runs deep. These are characters with deep emotions and powerful personalities who all come together to make up the Oath Keepers.

Frictions was, perhaps, one of her best pieces yet. She drew
As a reader first I just have to say how happy and proud it makes me see how an author evolves in their writing careers. Some start strong in the race and some wobble a touch before they get their legs under them and really take off. These are the ones that I always root for. The ones that really start in those trenches but dig themselves out and stay humble the entire time.

I am so happy that that race of Sapphire Knight's has lead us to Twist. The evolution of her writing has really showed itse

Oh Twist! <3
After brutal murder took his wife and daughter from Twist, he's lived in a constant state of darkness. The MC life is the perfect way for him to take out all his aggression, drink himself into oblivion, and live high as a kite. He never expected to meet the woman who could bring light to his darkness and make him want to wake up to live another day.

Another brilliant installment to the series. Friction contains the continuation of club issues and problems with rival clubs and other businesses involving The Oath Keepers MC and characters I have grown to love.

Recommended reading from the start of the series.

Friction focuses on Twist and Sadie's relationship along with other chaos surrounding the club.

A great MC series with hotness, likeable characters, danger and a broken biker that finally finds peace and love.

This is a books I have been wanting to read for a while now. It is also one of those books where you think this will be a 'good read'. Then you actually read it and your just like ' Wow' there are no words to describe just how brilliant this edition to the Oath Keeper MC is.
Twist is twisted and comes from a dark and traumatic past. Having lost his loved ones in a terrible and violent way.

The devastating prologue gripped me and there was no hope of escaping. What Twist endured and tragically tried to hold on to made me realize that there is more story behind every character that Sapphire's writes. Twist story will reel you in and hold you hostage with no hope of escaping and its not like you will want to anyway. Sadie comes looking for her brother and one encounter from Twist, literally TWIST her up. The banter and conversati

Friction is a great addition to this series I strongly suggest you read them in order to get the full effect. Twist has a dark past and may not be the man that 2 Piece wishes to be involved with his sister Sadie but when she turns up at the Club needing a place to stay its Twist that offers her that and so much more, the pull between these two is so strong your likely to get burned if your in the way.

Sadie can definitely hold her own amongst this group of bad ass bikers and their ol'ladies but s

I received an advanced copy of this book for an honest review. I love this whole series but Twist's story will pull at your heartstrings. Twist has had a hard life that is full of tragedy. I was glad to see his story explained in detail. In previous books you will catch a glimpse at some of the things that are important in this book. Reading Forsaken Control is highly recommended before reading this one.

Sadie is feisty! Her story was something that can happen to anyone and it makes you relate to

Author Sapphire Knight is one amazing author, I loved Twist since the begining of her series there was always something that tugged at my heart for him, and I will say one thing this story will make you want to believe again in love and in the human soul, eveyone has past that haunts them but Twist's past is beyond haunting most people would have never survived.

First off I will start by saying I have read all of Sapphire Knight's books leading up to this one and they are all great! You can see with each book is getting better and better. I'm not sure how much better she can get, I love every single one of her books.

Twist is a mysterious character and I always wondered why he was the way he is. After reading the prologue I get it. I love this book so much. Not only do we get into Twist's head we

What a great addition to the series. Twist is a rough around the edges biker with a heart of gold. Sadie is a great strong willed woman, who happens to be pregnant and 2 Pieces sister. Sadie is a great addition to this series. And Twists story is one that takes you for a wild ride. Can Sadie mend this broken man? Well you have to read this to find out.
I strongly suggest reading Exposed, Relinquish and Forsaken Control so you know who the other characters are and to understand the story line bett

Twist is definitely different then all the other members of the MC. He has a past he hasn't shared with his brothers but it haunts him almost every day. Sadie is understanding even before he knows why. She can also give him part of what's missing as long as her brother (2 piece) doesn't kill him first.
I have loved every book in this series. Somehow Sapphire Knight has made the bond between Sadie and Twist one of my favorites. He has such a rough personality but Sadie makes him sweet and just a

OOh Boy! Friction was intense! Crucial insights to Twist's insanity are revealed in this action packed addition to the Oath Keepers Series. Sadie's role in this follow up is a beautiful addition to this MC's family and I loved this book! This one is not for the faint of heart and you definitely need to read the prior books in the series to get the full experience of this novel. Once again Sapphire Knight brings you into the world of the Oath Keepers MC and it is a jaw-dropping experience!
