Man, I just love this shit.

If you haven't read the Twist Me Series, STOP.

Do not pass GO.
Do not collect $200.


Turn your ass around.
Go gobble that series down.
And then come talk to me about this series.


Go on now.

I'll wait here.


All done?


Moving on.

This amazing series continues (and gives more backstory on) what happened (and happens) between Lucas and that sexy interpreter we met back in the Twist Me series.

And boy was it everything I was hoping for.

I can't WAIT for book two..
A Dark, Edgy Love Story

Lucas first lays eyes on Yulia when she serves as a translator during a meeting between his boss, a notorious arms dealer, and some Russian contacts. In a room full of dangerous criminals, Yulia's beauty beckoned him.

He found himself unable to forget the blonde beauty, even after watching her throw herself at his boss. Determined to work her out of his system, he goes to her apartment that night, surprised to find her receptive to his advances. The two spend a night of pa
It's not as good as the previous series, but at least we got a little peek at Julian and Nora. Definitely gonna read the rest of the series.
And I really, really do not like Yulia, I don't care for her, and I want her to die. My major problem with this one.
Wow, I absolutely love it. Since this is a spin off from the Twist Me Series I highly recommend reading that series first! Capture Me starts off even darker than the Twist Me books and I have a pretty good feeling about how the story will continue. I'm a big fan of this author, so I know I'm in for a book treat. It's just one of those things where you can be relaxed knowing everything you read will be very good and also satisfying in the end.

The author pulled me in and didn't let go until the last page. Overall, Capture Me is a book filled with suspense, crime, danger and lust! It is very well written with a good flowing storyline and does leave you guessing to what is going to happen next with twists and turns.

The story: Lucas is a relentless mercenary working for Julian Esguerra, a crime boss. Yulia is a young beautiful woman working as an interpreter involved in

First off, this was too short... and ending with a cliffy, hell no! Even though this book was not about Rosa, who was the one who deserved to be the main character, I still had been waiting for it, but sadly it was not what I was expecting. I wanted more. It was not enough. It was starting to get intense and then boom "THE END". Not cool.

I love Anna writing, so yes, cannot wait to read the next book and see how this story is going to end. I know i

If you enjoyed the Twist Me Trilogy by Anna Zaires and Dima Zales then you will want to continue the dangerous, adventure filled world in Capture Me. Although Capture Me is a spin-off of the Twist Me Trilogy, the Capture Me trilogy could still be read or listened to as a standalone as it primarily features a different couple. For those of you who did experience the first trilogy, however, you will be happy to know that you still continue t

Y'all be prepared for me to rant about shit.

First things first; if I had known that this was a sort of companion novel / spinoff of Twist Me, I wouldn't have read it. That is my single biggest problem with this book. Nowhere in the synopsis is this mentioned.

And I don't hate the idea of books that decide to do spinoffs novels or series. But in this case, Nora and Julian (aka the couple kidnapper and his victim in Twist Me) are given entirely too much focus. Lucas in particular, but also severa

So good!!! I am really enjoying Anna Zaires’s writing. I really liked the Twist Me trilogy so I was pretty excited to start this one knowing it was about Lucas and Yulia. Starting book 2 right away.
The Capture Me series is a spin off of the Anna Zaires series, Twist Me. Our female lead, Yulia, finds herself attracted to the man she must betray. She can't let her attraction get in the way of her job. Our male lead, Lucas, is equally attracted. After a night of passion, Yulia becomes responsible for Lucas's plane crash. He wants revenge and he is determined to make her pay.

What did I think?
First, this is not a stand alone series. It contains MAJOR spoilers from the Twist Me series. I

Ugh so short and a cliffhanger?!?! I want more :( It was starting to get intense!

Anna Zaires books are my favourites and I loved that Lucas got a story and it was nice to see bits of Julian (who is my fave book boyfriend ever) as well.

After the betrayal that caused devastation to Lucas, Julian and his crew he wants revenge on the girl who did it. However Lucas struggles between the hate and lust he feels for Yulia.

Capture Me Is Absolutely Mind-Blowing!

Capture Me is the long anticipated spinoff to the Twist Me series, and is finally here.

I’ve absolutely loved every single book written by Anna Zaires. Her stories only get better and better, and Capture Me is not the exception. Not only was I immediately sucked into the story, but in addition I found myself unwilling to put my tablet down until the very end. This is the story about two broken souls trying to fight their own demons, as their undeniable passio

I gave this book 2 * because the writing, although not brilliant wasn't terrible either, and for having at least something of a plot. The writing lacks passion; it feels flat, lacking any depth to it. It is a verrrry simple tale that holds no mystery, being formulaic and predictable. I knew almost from the beginning what was going to happen and it did.

Both protagonists characterisations were distinctly undeveloped; each lacked anything interesting about them. Yulia and Lucas are 1D cardboard cut
Seducive and dangerous, nearly 4 stars. Short read cliffhanger finish.

Yulia is a spy and her job is to seduce and extract information.

From start to finish this is action packed.

Most of it went over my head a little, mostly while talking about people of power and importance talks of Russian places it threw me a little and I tried to focus more on the plot, maybe if I had read previous books it would of helped?

But I could feel the passion, enjoyed the plot and danger building as it hit the cliff

This is a spin-off of Twist Me series and I was excited to read it since I was intrigued by this Julian's right hand man a.k.a Lucas and how he takes his revenge against the Russian interpreter a.k.a Yulia.

Initially I was a bit apprehensive that there would have been a love triangle in it because in the Twist Me series, there was a hint about a love triangle *if you want to know more, just read Twist Me series! ;)* but fortunately, there was not in this book! Triangle love is not my

This was so good. I'm sitting here asking myself how I'm gonna wait until 2nd February for the next part of this story. Yep you heard it right. This ends in a cliffhanger. Thankfully not a 'throw kindle' kinda cliffhanger. Just one of them endings where I wish I had the next book to jump into lol

This book reminded me why I love emotional romantic stories. Every element necessary for my reading investment was there–the dangerous alpha male, the strong heroine, the compelling plot, the emotional turmoil and the hope of love. Yulia's motivations are clear and easy to sympathize with. Lucas is an antihero who doesn't make excuses for who he is. The obstacle that keeps them apart is enormous – Yulia is indirectly responsible for the death of Lucas' comrades, and it is only by miracle that he ...more

Where to start with this review. I was like a giddy school girl when the ARC hit my Kindle. I had waited weeks to review this. Once again the author writing has captivated me one again and takes me back to he world of the Esguerra Organization. This is a spin-off from the Twist Me trilogy which is about Lucas's boss Julian and Nora.

Lucas Kent was not what I imaged him to be maybe because I was comparing him to Julian while reading. I loved how I got se see into his mind he is very different the
Updated 12/20/17: currently free

Yulia Tzakova is the blond version of every Angelina Jolie action role: gorgeous, ruthless, badass, part of a shadowy organization. In her latest role as interpreter for a ruthless arms dealer she's been charged to seduce, finds herself inconveniently attracted to his second in command. Lucas Kent is enthralled, and almost destroyed by this dangerous beauty. Revenge has never been so hot.

So, this ends in a cliffhanger. As a fan of Ms. Zaires' Krinar books, I assumed this trilogy would follow the pattern of those books with a closed story arc at the end of each with new/ongoing adventures in the subsequent books. Nope, not in this case. I also didn't read the Twist Me books because some of the themes didn't appeal to me. While it isn't necessary to absorb those first, I felt as though I was missing some background and context that would have made Capture Me a deeper, richer read. ...more
Audiobook: I enjoyed the narration by both these narrators. They really brought this story to life for me. There are several different characters and their performance of them were very nice with the exception of one male character performed by Ms.Rae. I was completely immersed into this fascinating world created by Ms. Zaiares and voice by Ms. Rae and Mr. Scarlato.

This was a fast ride into some dark territory. The heroine grew up with darkness, lives her life in darkness and has now become resp
