Twisted Desire by Desiree A. Cox #Review

Sky, Nikki’s ex-husband, has a hold on her heart.

Jeff occupies her thoughts.

Sky can provide Nikki unconditional love.

Jeff can offer her everything she thought she wanted.

Nikki is so confused! Her head’s telling her one thing, while her heart is sending another message. But Nikki isn’t the only one who’s twisted by desire.

But Nikki isn’t the only one who’s twisted by desire.

Rating: 4 out of 5 Hearts

 

Review: Love makes us do stupid things and hormones make us do stupider things. I have to say that I’m not entirely sure I like any of the characters in this book, which causes me to give major props to the author. I know that I, personally, have had times when I really did not want to listen to the good advice I was hearing from my besties and family and Nikki goes through the same through the course of the book. A warning up front: there is a cliffhanger ending, which I HATE. But, unlike other cliffhangers, the author has me well-enough invested in the story and in the characters that I actually care about finding out what happens to them in the next two books of the trilogy. Other reviewers come down on the Team Jeff or the Team Sky sides. Given all of the turmoil going on in her life, I’m actually coming down on the side of Team Nikki. This is a girl who really needs to get her life together without the influence of a man so she can know who she is as a person before opening her life up to someone else. A lot of Jeff’s behavior screams abuse to me, of the mental and emotional variety, and that really makes me not like him. I feel like there is a lot about Jeff that neither Nikki nor the reader (since this is first person) know about him. And, while Sky was Nikki’s first love, some of what he pulls seems to fall firmly in the emotional blackmail category. So, yeah, Team Nikki, at least for now. I may change my mind after future installments, but I really want to see her stand up for herself and for her daughter. I’m also sort-of wondering if Nikki’s friends, or her mother, will stage an intervention at some point.

 

The sexual situations in this book has it strongly in the Erotica genre. Some of the descriptions the author uses are crude, but overall the book is well-written. I am interested to see how her craft develops over time and see if the characters in the story mature, as well. As stated, with the erotic nature of the book, it’s recommended only for readers 18+.
