When someone tells you who you are, do you believe them?

The first question the cops asked me was if anything out of the ordinary happened to me lately.

When I woke up this morning in the room of a mental institution I couldn’t remember a thing – not my name nor how I got there. Not how I left or how I ended up in that interrogation room.

The only thing I knew came from th

When someone tells you who you are, do you believe them?

After reading ‘Half Truths’ last year, I knew I wanted more from this world. I was so excited to start Twisted Circles. A new secret society with some different players, and some of the same. Let me tell you, it did not disappoint. This story was one wild ride and was a fantastic romantic suspense.

Twisted Circles follows Eva Guerra. She’s lost her memory for a few days, and doesn’t know what’s going on. But she wakes up at a

'TWISTED CIRCLES' is the second full length romance book in Claire Contreras 'Secret Society' series. This can be read as a standalone. Spoken in 'Dual Perspectives.'

Like the first book we're thrust back in the same environment where we found ourselves in the first book, and like beforehand mystery yet again surrounds this establishment, another person has been reported missing, now it's up to one girl to go in as someone else and uncover the truth.

"But, as I stood there, my gaze on the licks of the flame, I realized I didn't know a thing about responsibility. And worse, I didn't want it. If being responsible for someone was going to make me feel this helpless, I'd rather not have it, because as she stepped toward the fire and stood still on the other side of it, my heart leaped into my throat. I knew that there were only two things I could do and both ensured the same outcome: we were all doomed."

Twisted Circles is the sequel to Half Truths. Twisted Circles can be read as a standalone, but the ending of Half Truths is given away. If you are planning on reading both books definitely start with Half Truths.

Twisted Circles is full of suspense with some romance. Twisted Circles is darker than Half Truths. Twisted Circles contains rape.
Eva finds out she has a twin sister and is asked to take her place. Eva ends up in the Swords initiation. Eva tries to figure out what happened to her twin and

5 Twisted Crowns

Suspense romance is my favorite, and Claire has a knack for writing my absolute favorite, the ones where nothing is ever quite as it seems. Twisted Circles rivals my very favorite suspense romance from Claire and sits as one of my favorites by her.

The star of the show is Eva, the heroine of the novel, and Adam is a delectable piece of eye candy that plays the supporting role as the hero. This is pretty opposite to most romance novels, but I absol

Twisted Circles is the 2nd book in the Secret Society series but can be read as a standalone. It is a suspense/mystery, secret society college romance that deals with some interesting and difficult topics but unfortunately I found this book to be very underwhelming.

This is definitely a book that works best going into blindly and I can see a lot of people enjoying this one but sadly I did not connect to the story or the characters at all. It felt like the story was trying to go in a bu

TRIGGER WARNING (view spoiler)

First I just want to start off by saying that get ready to get your mind fucked. Each chapter I finished, I ended up being more confused and with MORE questions that NEEDED to be answered. The author really does keep you on your toes. I normally lay down while reading books but with this one I was literally getting up after every minute because something would get thrown at me.

FIVE TWISTED STARS for Eva and Adam ❤🖤❤🖤!!!


Since I hadn’t read the previous book in the "Secret Society" series, I had no idea what to expect from this book.

What at first attracted me to this book was its blurb which sounded very interesting.

Those who follow me know how much I love reading suspense romance so it’s not so unusual that I decided to read this book.

What I liked the most in this book was that from the very beginning the plot is tense and that it simply pulls you to read it with

Twisted Circles is a fast-paced romantic suspense where you don't know what to believe. I loved that we were thrown right into the heart of the story where we are introduced to the main character Eva who doesn't remember how she ended up at a mental institution. I had no idea what to expect and who to trust, but I loved being on this mysterious and secretive quest with Eva. She definitely didn't had an easy life, and now she doesn't k

As he entered me slowly, fully, my hips billowing for more, which he gave, I realized that I didn’t want him to be a stranger. With each thrust he gave, my back arched in acceptance, and with our eyes still connected, I knew that above anything else, I didn’t want him to be one of the countless faceless men in my wake.

Twisted Circles is an edge of your seat thrill ride from start to finish! Claire Contreras WOWS in this exciting and heart pounding release. I was legit sitting on the edge of my seat throughout the entire read! In a word — amazing!

Here’s what I loved:
The readability is on point. I flipped the pages so fast and was holding my breath half the time in anticipation of the next clue or bomb to drop. I loved the suspense and intricacies of the plot! The writing and execution are both well done!

Wow. This book has a brilliant, engaging, addictive story that I found myself captivated by from the beginning to the end.

Twisted Circle is the second book in the Secret society series and although it can be read separately, it is good to remember that this book takes place in the universe of Half truth and we return to the world of secret society full of secrets, twists and mysteries. I will not go into the detail of the story because it would spoil the reading, believe me that the
“Twisted Circles” takes us back to Ellis University to the twisted incidents linked to the secret societies. The best way to find answers to the ancient secrets surrounding The Swords is to go into it blindly. Be prepared to be captivated by our MC, Eva Guerra as she finds herself tangled with the red cloaks. She will push and pull for explanations to the dark mysteries as it plays mind games with her past...questioning everything she knows.

This is absolute brilliance! A case of amnesia is where this begins. Eva Guerra has found herself with no memory of what’s happening in her life.

This story is so masterfully constructed that I felt like I was in the middle of a maze, collecting clues and trying to find a way out, where I’m gonna get all the answers.

Secret societies.
A mental institution.
Religious ceremonies.
Combine them together and you have the perfect backdrop for this new romantic suspense story, which had my mind going into overdrive. The author held nothing back in this story, beginning on page one as one narrator sets the scene that will change everything.

Eva Guerra has not had an easy life. She's adopted and been in therapy for most of her life, due to her "anger issues". We are introduced to her during a time when she's suf

From the beginning you are thrown into a, WTF, who is that, what the hell, oh no he didn't, oh hell no she did what, moments...You are constantly second guessing the last thought you had.
