This books grabs you from the first page and doesn’t let go. There is mystery and intrigue upon mystery and intrigue and a relationship between Kader and Laurel unfolds amongst chaos and confusion. It is gripping and I had to read it in one day and now I have to wait, but I know it will be worth it.

The first part in Aleatha Romig’s new Tangled series called Twisted is a phenomenal book. From the way Laurel trust Kader even though we as a reader haven’t been told much about him. He is such an intriguing mystery that I can’t help but want to learn more about. Laurel is a doctor who gets sucked into this underground world, but at least she has Kader to protect her if anything happens. This is only the first part and I can’t wait to read how the rest of their story goes.

Twisted is the first book in the amazing new Tangled Web series by Aleatha Romig. I was sucked in right from the start. This book grabbed me and didn’t let go. I love Kader and can’t wait to find out more of his back story. There are so many levels of twists and turns that they will keep you guessing throughout the whole book. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough to find out what was going to happen next, yet when I got to the end I was desperately looking for more! I can’t wait for Obsessed!! ...more

Wow what a ride. Twisted is book 1 of the series and it is so Twisted. It is intriguing, suspenseful, sexy and definitely a page turner. I’m so looking forward to learning more about Kader, he’s damaged and intriguing. Laurel is so trusting of everyone, should she be trusting Kader? Can’t wait to read the rest of this series.

3.5 stars but 4 rated cuz my middle school teacher taught me how to round (she obviously never had to go through the pain of rating on Goodreads)

Being Aleatha Romig's fan I just couldn't miss this book. I love the suspenseful stories this author comes up with, I just love how intense they are and how many secrets lie in them.
Stunning story! Awesome dude!...not...-so-awesome heroine but still enjoyed the book



Let's start with a brief intro of the characters.

3.5 “Intriguing” Stars

This was an interesting beginning. As with trilogies, plot lines need to be established in the first book and then liberties can be taken with book two and three. This author is the best at twists and turns so the possibilities are endless.

First, this story was packed with lots of information. There were times I thought too much that it made it hard for me to connect with the story and the characters. It was rather conflicting to me because I have always loved all of this a

-At the sight of her, the small hairs on the back of my neck stood to attention. It was as if she was electricity and I was the rod. My reaction was visceral, much as it had been the first time I'd seen her.

-In a short time, I'd become addicted. Having her bright blue orbs looking at me was like a drug.

I really enjoyed this book. It's the first book in the Tangled Web series. From the very beginning the story have me hooked. I like Kader character straight away he was sexy and very mysterious. No one really knows who he is or what he does. The lil parts that we got from him doesn't tell us much but I liked that in a way. So I'm looking forward to getting to more from him and after the way this ended in dying to know more.

I have been a longtime fan of Aleatha Romig since her Consequences series and most recently the Web of Sin series, so when I saw that she was writing another deliciously sexy suspenseful trilogy, I could not get aboard fast enough. Kader was so mysterious and compelling. I loved how drawn he was to Laurel without divulging his true intentions. What an amazing rollercoaster ride!

I enjoyed the suspense element and how Laurel and Kader met. And, while I loved their sizzling chemistry, I would have

for my first Aleatha Roming book, I am really happy with it...

well, it is only beginning because see honey this has a cliffhanger.. ooooohhh so I see me some more Aleathea reading in the future...

if you are looking for some suspenseful read with some mystery trough in it..check this out and far as I am aware this is only the beginning of two more trilogies in the same plotline frame or something ( don't quote me on it)...

Twisted is a spellbinding, intriguing and mystery story. The plotline really keeps my interest up that's why it's hard to put down. Kaden and Laurel's characters were engrossing and I felt as if I knew them by the end of this book but I was wrong. And because of that cliffy ending, questions that kept me wondering what's Kaden intentions in helping Laurel. Is he really helping her?

This is a clever, uniquely plotted story which I found this book thoroughly enjoyable. Well done Aleatha!

Suspenseful, dark, thrilling, sexy, oh, and TWISTED... you are going to LOVE the launch of this latest trilogy...

Laurel is a smart heroine--a researcher hoping to raise money to continue work on her PTSD drug. She and her partner are two halves of the formula. Without one of them, it can't be made... Then Kader shows up, dark and mysterious, telling her she has to shut it down.

Then it all gets super exciting, and there are other people who might not be all they seem. Who can you trust? Who is te

When I began reading this book I was in a hurry as I had been away from home for a whole week on a business trip and I had several ARCs to read in the span of a few days.

Hurrying in a book because you are on a schedule is so not the best way to experience a story and I try to avoid this pressure as much as I can in spacing the ARCs.

To say I was a little bit apprehensive is too weak and I dreaded giving the book a lower rating due to my mood.


I should have trusted Aleatha!

This is truly Twisted, Laurel is a Ph.D. a scientist that her and her partner/lover has discovered a possible new development that is the cutting edge, however its not yet made it to trials yet but is getting all the wrong attention. That is where Kadar comes in he is from Chicago dark underworld and is the wrong attention seek to destroy Laurel world. Make her an offer she can not refuse.

Web of Sin introduced me to Aleatha Romig’s concise and succinct writing, making me fall in love with her thriller romances. Naturally, hearing she was creating a spin-off series left me excited! I didn’t assume a suspense narrative featuring an overload of information combined with a distinct lack of romance though; it took me longer to become invested in Twisted, but even with the inevitable ending and pieces of information, it didn’t increase my interest whatsoever.

Twisted is the start of a suspense filled, dark romance that I quite enjoyed. I loved the dynamic between Kader and Laurel and the beauty and beast-ish as well as the nerd/jock vibes the story gave off. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and cannot wait to read the next rest of the series. I recommend to those who love dark romance with suspense.

WOW, What a way to start the trilogy! I have to be honest here and say that I don't think I have read anything by Aleatha Romig that I didn't enjoy, this one not only had me interested right from the start but I really didn't want to put it down and if real life didn't interfere I probably wouldn't have.

Laurel Carlson is a scientist along with her partner they have come up with a compound which could help people suffering from PTSD. You would think this is a good thing but apparently it isn't..

Twisted is a sexy and thrilling launch to what looks to be a fantastic series. Aleatha Romig is a powerhouse when it comes to romantic suspense, and this book truly showcases her incredible storytelling skills. Kader and Laurel are two individuals caught in a web of danger while facing an inexplicable attraction to one another.

The first book of this trilogy was very intriguing. The plot was well-endowed, the mystery waves reached high degrees, the characters were developed as much as the first part allowed.

Kader and Laurel’s chemistry was undeniable from the moment their eyes met. Although Kader was a very interesting character, I can not say the same for Laurel. She seemed in her own bubble and didn’t fully realise the existing reality.
Too many scientific data were provided throughout the story that became

I was given this book for an honest review by Wicked Reads.

Laurel is brilliant. She is also somewhat shy. When she is approached during a less than exiting fund raiser, despite the warning bells that this person is probably dangerous, Laurel's reaction is more carnal.

Kader is used to taking jobs and going on to the next one. However, this one...this one is different. He can't seem to figure out why

Kader is a hunter, hired for an assignment he wouldn’t usually take but he made an exception...because of her, Laurel. He doesn’t know her or so he thinks but is drawn to her. “I’m the man who’s going to ensure you live to see the rest of today” Dr. Laurel Carlson is a brilliant doctor in pharmacology. While attending a fundraiser for research on a new drug she was creating she felt someone watching her. A Mystery Man of sorts that she felt drawn to and yet scared of at the same time.

This might actually be my shortest review to date!! Not because I didn’t like this story, I LOVED it!!! It’s just that I can’t talk about anything from the book.

Twisted is the first book in Aleatha’s newest trilogy…Tangled Web Trilogy. I thought it set up the storyline perfectly. I loved the characters that are introduced in this story. I can’t wait to see where she takes them. I am sure it will be on

I don't know why but this book feels different from Aleatha Romig. I am not saying that in a bad way at all. I loved it, I was addicted, I was caught in this web of a story. The difference? It felt more suspenseful, more crime driven, reminiscent of a James Patterson or John Grisham novel with a bit of sexy added.
Kader is a dark "hero" dark even for this queen of dark author.
Laurel she is a strong smart female that fear and confusion is making weak. She has her smarts but her emotions are a mess

A cryptic beginning with tons of depth and intriguing characters.

This story unfolds in an intricate way. Little nuggets of information are shared as the story grows. There are still a lot of pieces not in place and of course I am chomping at the bit for more. Laurel is a smart character. She is a doctor working on research project that could one day change the face of medical practices.

OMG! I was Aleatha'd AGAIN!! Trust me I have my trusty Aleatha book flow chart all up and running for this series. I mean come on with a series title Tangled Web you know its going to be needed. Twisted is truly one heck of a twisted web of secrets and this was just book 1. Twisted was the perfect setup to the Tangled Web series. You have so many questions thrown at you and you just want to know what is going on. Just when you are given 1 answer you are given even more questions.
