WOW!! WOWOWOWOW! With each Pleasure House book I read, I am certain I found a new favorite. But Twisted Fates really IS my favorite! Shannon is by far my most favorite slave to date. She has that spunk that not even 190546593 cane lashings can get rid of. I was sure that when I read her little snippet in Broken Dolls that she would be a character I didn't think fondly of but oh I LOVE HER SO MUCH!
Lindsay...oh man, he definitely won me over. To be honest, he was the trainer I have liked the least
5 deliciously dark stars!

This freaking book! I don't know where to start. What an absolute mind fuck. Seriously. One of the best Kitty Thomas books I've read and definitely one of the best in the Pleasure House series, second only to Pretty Lies.

First of all I really liked Shannon. She was brave and strong but not remotely bratty, the perfect sub essentially. I seriously admire Shannon and the journey she went through, I was throughly invested in her happy ending.

I loved Lindsay, which really

While i was hoping for Shannon to finally see her fate twisted into something good,i never dared hope it would twist into something this GOOD! Finally!
If anyone in the Pleasure House deserved it,it was Shannon and Kitty gave her everything and more!
Getting the ARC for this was such a treat! And all that for an honest review....

Lindsay,the House doctor,has been pussy-footing around Shannon for years.
Ever since Brian nearly killed her. Leaving her scarred,inside and out.

Phenomenal addition to Ms Thomas' 'Pleasure House' series. This one focuses on Shannon, an emotionally, psychologically & physically scarred woman trapped in a limbo between being a 'pet' & a member of the Pleasure House staff; Lindsay, the Pleasure House psychiatrist & one of the 4 Masters that own Pleasure House; Damien, a close friend of Lindsay's.
But, other reviewers & the book description give a good idea of the plot basics, so my review focuses on how this story made me FEE

If you've been following Thomas for as long as I have (over 8 years), then Twisted Fates is a much anticipated conclusion to the Pleasure House novels. While this is the fifth book set in the Pleasure House world, they can all act as stand-alones and can be read in any order. That being said, if you're just diving into this world, you will appreciate this book much more if you've read all of them, though it is not necessary. As a long time fan of Thomas, and having read all of her novels several ...more

Where to begin?!?! I absolutely LOVED THIS BOOK!!! Seriously, this book just became one of my top reads from this authour, for this year, and forever. Why? Because it has such depth of feelings, of insight into the how we human tick, and what makes us so different from other. Also, how we truly are such an adaptable species, and what we never thought possible, will change for us in a flash. A moment where we need to do what we have to, and make choices we never thought possible, highlighted Darw ...more

Kitty Thomas has opened up a whole new world for me. Please keep in mind that I haven't read the rest of the Pleasure House series but Guilty Pleasures. I haven't read Brian's story and although he's a huge part of the story in this book, Kitty Thomas managed to tell what need to be told in this book.

The heroine, Shannon, has experienced a very traumatic experience in her past and hasn't moved on at all. She somehow twistedly blame Lindsay for that one tragic moment and hated him ever since.

"There is a very thin line between love and hate. If some part of you didn't love him, you wouldn't hate him so much."

TWISTED FATES closes the book on the main Pleasure House masters by bringing the scarred spa technician Shannon Foster to Dr. Lindsay Smith's feet. Lindsay initially brought Shannon to the house to be trained and sold, but an unfortunate run in with Brian, the sociopathic dungeon master, left Shannon damaged beyond salability. As a result, she has spent years working in the house

Erotically Charged. Fantastic Writing.

•”They'd signed on to play this game. But even so, the house was illicit. Nobody left this place a free woman. You walked through those doors, and the next time you walked out was in a rich man's chains. There was no true out. There was no changing one's mind. There was no safeword.”•

“Because of the nature of the house, the choice was once and it was forever. Choose wisely…”

Eight years ago, Shannon Foster was given a choice…to be trained in submission and to be owned by a Master who would never discard her. But the choice, once made, could never be reversed…regardless of circumstances. When Shannon displeases the one trainer feared by all within the House, she pays a price that costs her in more ways than just the scars left on her body. No longer able to continue being brok
I thoroughly enjoyed Twisted Fates, BUT, I have a confession – Until this book, I had completely forgotten who Shannon was. Lindsey of course I remember, but when it came to Shannon…WHO? Oh yeah, I do vaguely remember her. Just in case you are like me and forgot what had previously happened, don’t worry because there are enough reminders to bring you up to speed. I felt like this whole non-series series was building up to this book. Warning: Be prepared to have this overwhelming urge to want to ...more

Another amazing addition to the Pleasure House world! I was super excited to finally read Lindsay and Shannon's love story and Ms. Thomas didn't disappoint. Those who are familiar with Pleasure House books met Lindsay and Shannon is previous installments. While we don't know much about Shannon aside from her tragic history in the House, Lindsay is a character who has had a fairly prominent role throughout most books. And his track record is far from pristine. But leave it to the author who made ...more

This an honest ARC review. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves the dark romance world and power exchange. Kitty Thomas does not disappoint as she spins this magical web of pleasure and pain that are the lives of Lindsay and Shannon, and then Lindsay, Shannon and Damien. This book took me on an emotional ride that offered suspense, happiness, pleasure, heartbreak, pain, and fantasy. It was an emotional roller coaster from page 1, I had to stop about 65% percent in to calm down and re ...more

You’re going to love Lindsay; Shannon will break your heart and Damian will give you an appreciation for a certain type of intercourse even if it’s not your thing and if you’re anything like me you’ll want to plot a very painful death for Brian even if he sort of redeems himself towards the end.

I read the previous books in this series when they were individually released and they were all fantastic! Brian has been my favorite character but all the characters are amazing in their own way. As usual Kitty did not disappoint in this she said we would all love Lindsay. Of course she was correct I do love his character, than again like so many others I never hated him. I think the house needed him just like it needed all the other characters. Each character brought their own thoughts and per ...more

Twisted fates is the story we've been waiting for about Lindsay. I have mixed feelings on Lindsay. I've loved to hate him through the other books as he appeared off and on, always hoping we'd have the story which told us more about him and perhaps showed us more. In this book Kitty showed us so much more as Lindsay took up the case of Shannon, long serving resident of the house who really belonged to know and nothing after Brian showed her why it's a bad idea of cross him.

WOW Twisted Fates by Kitty Thomas is HOT HOT HOT! This is a stand alone, but if you've read another of the of the Pleasure House books, you'll remember both Shannon and Lindsay. You also see several other characters here as they are important to this story. We also meet a new character Damian and oh Damian...

Shannon was close to death after being punished by Brian the house psychopath, but she was saved. It was decided she would not be able to be sold off with the damage he did to her, but she w

I have to admit, i went into this one, not really feeling that these characters would truly get together and be a true relationship. By the end of the first chapter, i was hooked. I have to admit Kitty pulled it out the bag with this book, because I could not see how Shannon and Lindsay would ever be a forever couple like the other members of the house. But this story has pulled me in, made me feel as we see what Shannon has gone through since that eventful day with Brian so long ago, we see a b ...more

I loved all of the additional characters in this book, it felt like so much had happened and not enough time had passed, the emotional journey that Shannon had to go on, heck, even Lindsay had to go on was ...more

I saved this book for the weekend because I knew once I started it, I wouldn’t be able to put it down. I read this on a plane ride from Connecticut to Georgia. Twisted Fates captured me from the very first line until the last period. The emotions that I felt from this story was everything from happiness, to anger, to sadness, to giddiness, and let’s not forget the hot as sin sex that was mixed in. This is not your typical Kitty Thomas book. This is elevated Kitty. This is a must read. If you hav ...more

Ok. Now on to this one. Lindsay and Shannon’s story is so perfect. Shannon broke my heart in the beginning with the nightmare and then looking at her scars. But beauty definitely is more than skin deep and Shannon was and is a beautiful leading lady. Lindsay well, he is just simply hot hot hot.

This book was so good!! But I have whiplash from the way my emotions were played. I was smiling, happy and then had tears rolling down my cheeks. But don't let that comment stop you. The ending was all I could have hoped for and more. What a wonderful addition to the Pleasure House series. It was great to see the other characters showing up in the book.

I have hated Lyndsay since we first met him. Actually despised him kind of hated. I am torn as to my feelings about him right now. I still don't particularly care for him, but... I dunno. I think he didn't come off all that well at times. I don't think he made the best choices for Shannon.

I have always felt sorry for Shannon. She had such a terrible thing happen and then she got stuck for 8 years. I don't blame her for feeling the way that she does. I would totally feel the same way.

I am definitely going to have to go back and start from book one. I know Kitty states these can be read as stand alones but I think they should all be read before you read this one.

I choked down Twisted Fates in less than 24 hours; what can I say, once I picked it up I just couldn't put it down. Admittedly, I had been quite desperate for a long time to see Shannon's story line resolved (so needless to say, when I got my hands on this book it was on!

Without giving a whole lot away, Shannon had obviously been living in a sort of limbo for a while, living with both the physical and mental scars inflicted upon her by Brian, before Lindsay, once again, steps in to save her. Thi

Another 5star read from Kitty Thomas

I love the Pleasure House books but I honestly didn't know how this one would go. Shannon intrigued me but I did not think much of Lindsey's character previously. This book defineltly changed that, there is something so raw and primal about their relationship despite the history they share. I found their story a complex mix of tragic and beautiful and once I started reading I could not put it down.

Kitty Thomas has perhaps topped even herself this time around. "Twisted Fates" is an emotionally raw story not for the faint of heart. Shannon and Lindsay have so much chemistry between them, but past trauma has kept them apart...until now. I physically hurt for Shannon as she battled her feelings. I wanted to hate Lindsay, based on his actions from past stories in the interlinked Pleasure House books, but I just couldn't. His obvious feelings for Shannon made me fall in love with him, which is ...more

Back in the Pleasure House world, and I couldn’t be more ecstatic. Doc Lindsey, who I always kinda had a thing for, gets his time, and it’s with Shannon, who couldn’t be more deserving. That woman has literally been through h**l, and when Lindsay steps in once again, he decides he’s going to keep her. It’s not smooth going at first, but slowly, things start coming together for these two. And then things really start happening 😉. I’m going to stop right here so I don’t give away juicy details, or ...more
