Running.
It's what I do. What I've always done.
For fitness. For fun.

And now for fear.

He took me. Trapped me. Destroyed me.
Broke me down, little by little.

His captive.
His slave.
His pet.

But...something unleashes.

Something forbidden. The passion. The pleasure.
It's wrong. Unforgiving, and I should do what I do.

Run like Hell.
From this Twisted Love.

I have to admit I don't read books like this and I actually wasn't excepting to like this at all, but I love all of R linda’s other books so I knew I had to give it a go

Well R Linda did not only exceed my expectations she blew it out the water and I was clearly surprised, once I started reading this book I couldn't put this book down I just had to know what was going to happen.

This story started out very interesting and I'm going to say too much as I think this book is best to go into it blind a

Holy heck this is one unbelievably dark bumpy twisted ride that grabs hold of you and shakes you to your core leaving you frazzled, speechless, shocked, numb and leaving you wanting to turn around and re-read it all over again because your adrenaline is on fire your mind is at a complete shutdown reeling still trying to process the words as they flow from the pages pulling you into the deep dark depths holding you captive with head reeling twists that blow your mind over a

Wow...I may need a minute... This book was so much I'm a little speechless. It hooked me from the beginning. Excellent storyline and I loved everything about Hendrix and his struggle with his humanity/morality. Lucy is so strong. She deals with so many things that would make a normal person break but does what she has to not only to survive but retain her spark. If you have read any of R. Linda's previous books, this one is vastly different. It is a much darker, gritty novel with a lot to stomac ...more

This book blew me away. It’s not my normal read but R Linda’s books are awesome and she completely hoodwinked me into this book. I was scared, terrified and in love. I really couldn’t see how I could like a character like Hendrix but as his back story I’d filled in you can’t help but be heart broken for him.
There really isn’t much I can say without spoiling the plot you just have to read it. It is a completely unique story idea ( at least to me ) and it’s to beautifully written and exactly how

"This book was tense, it weirdly had a lot of cute moments between Hendrix and Lucy in yet at the same time it was tense as hell. I loved the feelings through this book the plot was also amazing (I don’t want to go into it too much because of spoilers). But yes the plot was fantastic! Really well written and she definitely stepped out of her comfort zone with this book."

First off, although there is a thread of romance in this book, it is primarily & predominately a disturbing, bleak & brutal exhausting look into the lives of people destroyed & tortured by a psychotic (my definition, not technical) heinous man.
The 4 main characters are:
Ray-- the mentally deranged sadist who wants the 'perfect family' & has a finite solution for all those who have failed
Hendrix-- Ray's son who has lived through Hell, physical abuse & agony as far back as he is able to recall

I came into this story thinking that it was going to be more of a dark love novel with a character with a "bad" backstory learning to love again. Boy, was I in for a surprise. This is more of a thriller than a "sexy" love story, but it was definitely worth the read. 

Lucy is just living the normal life of a college student, but then Hendrix comes into her life. She thinks that he is cute and hopes that he might ask her out someday, but he does a lot more than that. He kidnaps her and takes her to

Wow! Just wow! This read is unlike any of R. Linda's previous novels and dives deep into a deranged, dark and violent world. I wasn't sure what to expect but was certainly blown away! If you are looking for a really dark romance with trigger topics, pick up this book!

Twisted Love made me squirm, scream, gasp, cry, rage and tremble. What a whirlwind of emotions packed into one story. I couldn't help but feel so strongly for Hendrix. He was kind, devoted, caring and empathetic. A complete opposite

Long time follower, first time reader - and what a story to start with!

Twisted Love truly is that; a tale of twisted love. Hendrix has not had an easy life. His father is a nasty piece of work, and over the years, he's been grooming him to follow in his footsteps.
Lucy's life should've been more than it was. With her senator father and perfectly poised mother who only care about how they look to the public eye, she quickly decided to go it alone, studying and working to make ends meet.

I have NEVER read a book that was so aptly named. This entire story was entirely TWISTED... I was absolutely hooked from the the beginning. It really was TWISTED, but in a crazy, mind numbing, what is going to happen next kind of way?!

This is a pretty psychological read, which was extremely enticing . I usually read more lighter books and just by looking at the title, blurb, and that it is a part of R. Linda's Stockholm Syndrome Series, you can tell that it will be none of those things. I am gla

He stole everything from her, but she gave him her heart. Sometimes you find love with someone no one else understands.

Lucy is on her own. Going to school and working to make ends meet. Her dad's a senator and her mother the perfect politician's wife, but they are not a part of her life. Her parents are all about appearances. Lucy just wants to make it on her own and choose her own path.

Hendrix was the the guy she bumped into one day. Then he started showing up at her work. He was good looking a

This book is so heavy, intense, complex that I'm left speechless. The story hooked me from the very beginning. What a truly great storyline; I loved everything about Hendrix and his struggle with his humanity and morality. You can’t help but be heart broken for him and what happened to him in his past. Oh Lucy! What an incredibly beautiful, strong and brave young woman. Fierce even!

This is a story about Lucy and Hendrix, how they meet and eventually form a bond that is unbreakable. The other two main characters are Kat and Ray, each bringing something very different to the story-line. The story is dark and there is a lot of fear and aggression that Lucy, Kat and Hendrix experience at the hands of Ray. The story is slow and there never really appears to be a time where it picks up speed, if you are looking for action, then this is not the novel for you! The fact that the au ...more

I have been in such a book slump for a while. I’m sick of reading the same thing over and over. This book was recommended to me so I took a chance on it. I’m not into Thrillers usually or anything that causes my mind to dwell on later. But this book was the exception.

I was enthralled right from chapter one. I read 60% in one sitting before needing to tear myself away for sleep. At points I wanted to read the book from between my fingers like a movie 😂

Thanks to the author for ARC in exchange for honest review. This is one sick read for me, first time with R. Linda and she scares the shit out of me. What a brilliant story. How dark can the story go?

The story is dark, violent, a bit of thriller, a bit of rape, some abuse. I can never imagine how Hendrix be able to live like this, with a psychopath father who kidnaps girls to be his wife replacement.

While reading, goosebumps grow all over my body, as a reader, I am worried about them too. Ray is

Omg I loved this book. I read it all the way through in one day couldn't get enough of it. It's not like any book I've ever read before. It was Soo good, I absolutely loved the characters especially Hendrix. R. Linda is definitely onto something with this book it may be different from her other books but it's just so unique and a very good read. It definitely makes you stop and think about different situations and wonder how they were. Definitely recommend reading this book you won't be sorry!!!

Don't know where to start with this one! Other then being very impressed and blown away.

I wasn't sure if I would love it or hate it, but I've loved all of R.Linda's other books so thought why not give it a try. It is much darker then any of R.Linda's other work. But a very good read!

I was gripped from the start and read it in one sitting! Such a good and interesting story line.

This is the first book in the Stockholm syndrome series and if this is how it’s going to start I seriously can’t wait for more. This book had me hooked in and I found it really hard to put down. Characters are brilliantly written and descriptive making for a really hard hitting read. I can’t wait to read more by this auther.

This is the first book in a new series from this extremely talented author. When Hendrix meets Lucy a plan is set in motion, which will change both of their lives. No spoilers; this is a story which deserves to be delved into totally blind, as you will not be disappointed! This is a well written flawless story, which is filled with emotion, action, violence, suspense, and is a dark, gritty, twisted, thrilling, and is an all round powerful read.

I truly enjoyed this book. This book is dark, twisted, screwed up, sad, but a great read. This book could be difficult to read and a trigger for some. Definitely not for the faint of heart. There were some repetition but I feel it was to enforce the goodness still present in Hendrix after all this experienced torture. He was also a victim after being forced to do unspeakable things. Love was also found in this dark and twisted life, which made it easier to finish reading.

I am still not sure though. I really didn't understand why hero couldn't have done much to stop what his father was doing..Anyway, I really want to read more about both. Bcz, there was not much about their love though. I want him to find his real parents & live the life of real family, wife & kid. I also want to see more of Hendrix & Lucy & also them with kate.. ...more
