Even though people fear me, it doesn’t stop any of their torment.
I’d always just existed and walked alone, until now.
Now? Now I belong.

Just because I’d learned to kill, doesn’t mean the Bloody Psychos trust me.
Skeeter’s got his work cut out, trying to keep his boss from killing me.
Well, the asshole can try.

My trigger finger’s getting itchy, and I have a problem controlling

The second Part of this series is here!!! I have been waiting for this one for so long. Rory and Her boys are my all time favourites and I definitely can;t get enough of these characters! All the characters are amazing , aside from the fact that all the boys need to grovel a lot , to be in my good graces! FOR HOURS! But then , their hotness might get them my forgive=ness a bit faster than they expect….

The story picks off right where the firs

Revenge sounds nice!

You ever read a book and you couldn't put it down for even a second without having withdraws? Well let me tell you this is that book! Pretty lies was the same exact way so I'm super excited for book 3 to hurry up and come out!

This book had it all and I couldn't of asked for a better book to have a hangover from! I learned I might be just a little bit greedy after reading this as I wanted to add all the men to this RH. I mean #whychoose? I definitely need some more Hunter in m

Oh MAN! Twisted Fate throws us headfirst back into the chaotic world of Aurora "Rory" Donovan, and the web is no less twisted than the title would have you believe. After the ending of Pretty Lies, I wasn't sure WHAT was next for Rory, but I was not disappointed!

Rory survived and clawed her way back from unspeakable things last book, and in Twisted Fate, Bond shows us the toll that's taken on Rory as she tries to build herself back up. And just as it should be, she doesn't write it as sunshine a

What to say? What to say?
Well first off this book contains many triggers, so you have been warned!

Rory definitely had me frustrated, pissed and mad as hell throughout the whole book. Which I wasn’t expecting, since I was rooting for her in the first book PL (Pretty Lies) after everything she had been through.
There were times where I wanted to SCREAM at her and even SHAKE her to knock some sense into her.
Especially with the way she would act towards the guys, when around them

This is book #2 of the Watch Me Burn series and it can't be read as a standalone. You must have read the first book to understand this one. It ends in a huge cliffhanger.

Twisted Fate, by @R.E. Bond, is the second book in Watch Me Burn series. It is everything good about this genre wrapped up with a soul crushing bow. This book just shredded my heart into a million pieces. I'm not okay right now.

Rory is everything I love in a FMC. She's strong, resilient, she loves fiercely, and she has enough rage and trauma to send her from zero to dark side in 2 seconds flat.

The characters in this series feel real to me. They are perfectly imperfect with their flaws, multidi

Loving Watch Me Burn

This is the second book in the Watch Me Burn Series and I can’t believe it is only the second book from this author. R.E. Bond totally blew me away with this book. I was cheering her and cussing her at the same time! I cried with this book and there has only ever been one other book that has made me cry! Just like with the first book, I was on a roller coaster of emotions. But the emotions were so much deeper with this book. I connected with the characters more this time and
Oct 12, 2020 marked it as no-thanks
After reading some reviews on this one, I see that Bond is moving the story in a direction that I know I will hate. (view spoiler) So, to save myself from getting upset and being mad at the book, I'm going to pass on the rest of this series.

I've said this before, and I'll probably keep saying it, but the fact that I HATE (view spoiler)

Fuming. This book has taken me all over the place with my emotions. All over. I’ve cried (I’m not getting over that at all - prepare yourselves) and then spent the rest of the time fuming, mainly at the guys. What they did in book 1 was a hard pill to swallow, but I am not sure I like their character development in book 2 at all. Don’t even get me started on Lukas.

LOVED the addition of some new faces though and I do hope they get to stick around for book 3. I’m desperate for what we were basical

I am hot mess over here!!! Twisted Fate is everything! Angst, suspense, love, heartache and hotness overload. I want Rory to have a harem with all male characters in the book. They are all Alpha and have me over here fanning myself to cool down. Try not to cry, oh heck, you will so have a box of tissues nearby. That ending though!!!! I need book three ASAP.

I knew this book was going to be great! Book 2 made me cry and scream and I just wanted to bash a few heads in...

Overall 5 freaking stars!!! I feel like I was put through a wringer.... then BAM, it’s over and I have to wait for book 3!

Cliffhangers are going to be the death of me! Aurora Donovan is such a badass. I would just like to say that I love hunter and I’m glad he was brought in. It was a wonderful surprise.... but my baby Slash (intense sobbing), I’ll never be the same. Lukas..... don’t

I received an arc. Holy hot damn!! The cliffhanger on this book means major drama for the 3rd book and I can’t wait!! I absolutely love Rory even know I thought she was being a major B****h. And don’t even get me started on Luke, I understand his need to protect his heart but damn man no need for name calling or being a ahole . Also SKEETER is still my absolute favorite of all her harem. I already messaged her with my rant but I feel the need to reinforce the why?! Why did she have to go and bre ...more

Did that just happen?
Gobsmacked, that’s the extent of how I fee after reading this. This is book 2 in the series and I must say it’s definitely a sequel that has made an impact. So much has happened in this book I don’t know where to start.
In a lot of ways their relationships are toxic but in the softer moments it works and you see why they work at the same time. It’s an odd kind of dynamic which intrigues me. One second they compliment each other and are what the other need

BOOK 2, TWISTED FATE.... This is a DARK reverse harem with many potential TRIGGERS so please know this before reading this series. If you haven't started the series, go grab book 1, PRETTY LIES now. Wow. I told myself I was only going to read 2 chapters then I would go to bed... it is now almost 4am here and I just finished. And it blew me away.

**ARC provided in exchange for an honest review**

Twisted Fate was such a roller coaster! I read this book in one sitting. I couldn’t put it down! I found it very unpredictable, which I love in books. The same triggers from Pretty Lies apply to this book with the addition of light MM scenes. Rory’s POV is primary, however we also get small snippets from each of the guys. I really enjoyed their perspective, especially with what’s going on with them all. It helped everything make more sense.

When I first started reading this series, R.E. drew me in right away. Except this book is the definition os twists and turns. I seriously have never read a series like this, at all. This book specifically, woah.

The series centers around Rory Donovan, a girl who has is so broken she can’t even be touched, until she meets these five boys who she can’t find herself able to not touch. Right away these boys take her in and instantly fall for her. But like I said, this book is the definition of twists

This is such a good RH romance it’s one of my favorites out there ! This book took me on a roller coaster of a ride with my emotions. I laughed I cried I wanted to hurt somebody ugh all the damn feels !

Rory is such a awesome character. She’s beautiful strong independent and she takes no shit from anyone. I love what a strong character she is and she makes the men absolutely crazy. I love Skeeter ,Slash ,Hunter and Diesel they each bring there own dynamic to this group and are just as crazy as s

Twisted Fate is book 2 from The Watch Me Burn series, this is a DARK reverse harem with TRIGGERS in it with that being said if you haven’t read this series yet grab book 1 today!

This book is jammed packed full of deliciously hot men, drama and emotions. I could not put this book down and the roller coaster of emotions had me on the edge of my seat! You may need tissues or a stiff drink after this book..

Cliffhanger warning!!!!!

Twisted Fate is just as dark, if not darker than Pretty Lies. Rory is struggling to deal with the darkness that seems to have made a home inside her after the events of Pretty Lies. Her boys are doing the best they can to help her but aren’t happy that she seems to be getting more involved in the Psycho’s business.

There is a lot of conflict between Rory and the other main characters as she tries to work out how to live her increasingly complicated life, as well as dealing

Wow the emotions with this one

Well what can I say about R.E. Bonds second instalment of the Watch Me series. This one is a real emotion gripper. It had me on the edge of my seat the whole way through, so much so I could not put the book down and ended up reading it in one night.

The way that each character develops is truly magnificent. I love how Rory starts to come into her own through out this novel and is opening up to more people. She isn't afraid to tell it how it is or take what she wants

Twisted Fate, more like twist of emotions! When I finished reading the second book in the Watch Me Burn Series, I needed a few days to process all of it. I won’t lie there were times I was so angry that I imagined throwing my kindle across the room, and then there were moments I just cried. It was an intense ride! Rory Donovan continues to surprise me and anger me, but I can’t get enough.

You know one of the best things about being part of TalkNerdy? The chance to discover other authors. I had the greatest pleasure of reading RE Bond’s Watch Me Burn series. I practically binged this thing. I got the first book on KU and I was sent the arc for book 2 Twisted Fate. This series had me engrossed from the very beginning. I was a little hesitant at first with Rory, the FMC, but like a effing Phoenix, she rose and became a dangerous and formidable badass. Watching the relationships deve ...more

This book is everything you didn’t think you needed and more. This book took me through the ringer of emotions, sadness, anger, and happiness.

Rory is an amazing character. She is strong, independent, and takes no crap from anyone. She makes the men crazy around her and surrounds herself with men just as crazy as herself. She is such a very dynamic character that you cannot help but love.

Skeeter is amazing. Skeeter and Rory feed the fire and dysfunction in each other, which leads to a volatile

This is what I call a true reverse harem story. Rory is such a bad ass b*tch and I love her because she doesn't bow down to anyone. She isn't afraid to get shot or killed for her boys and she is a true warrior.

This second book in the Watch Me Burn series takes off right where the first one finished so you definitely need to read the first book in the series.

I am not going to get into too much because I don't want to spoil it for anyone but I have to say this is the first reverse harem book that

Aurora has definitely went off the deep end in twisted fate .

Starting where Pretty Lies left off . We see Rory becoming more an more unhinged as the darkness in her Festers to be uncontrolled ... With the guys steadily worried about what she's doing or losing her to death they end up pushing Rory away . The thing is when someone went their whole love not being shown love and affection or care for them from going to having numerous men care for you so much that it suffo

Twisted Fate by R.E. Bond is a dark romance reverse harem novel. This is the second book in the Watch Me Burn Series.

The book does come with a warning "The series contains dark content such as abuse and rape. It also has m/m scenes throughout. If you are triggered by sensitive content or cursing, this series is not for you."

R.E. Bond knocked the second book in her debut series out of the park. I couldn't put the book down and binged in one sitting. This book took me on an emotional roller coas
