Summary

The underworld of Chicago is far from forgiving. It’s a world where knowledge means power, power money, and money everything.  

While I paid the ultimate price to have it all, it wasn’t my decision to give my life....  

That doesn’t mean I ceased to exist, only to live. Going where the job takes me and living in the shadows, with deadly accuracy I utilize the skills inherent to me, not knowing from where they came, not recalling what I’d lost.  

And then I saw her. Laurel Carlson. I shouldn’t want her, desire her, or need her, yet with each sighting I know she is exactly what I have to have. Laurel has the ability to do what I thought was impossible. She sees what others don’t.  

My gut tells me that it’s a deadly mistake to change my plans and open my world to her. My mind says she’ll be repulsed by my twisted existence.  

None of that matters, because my body won’t take no for an answer.  

I’ve made dangerous mistakes before. This time, will the price be too high?  

From New York Times best-selling author Aleatha Romig comes a brand new dark romance bringing us back to the same dangerous underworld as Secrets. You do not need to listen to the Web of Sin trilogy to get caught in this new and intriguing saga, Tangled Web.   

Twisted is Book One of the Tangled Web trilogy, which will continue in Obsessed and conclude in Bound. Have you been Aleatha’d?

Just No...With One Exception

It’s incomprehensible that the female protagonist is a scientist! Laurel displayed the reasoning ability and emotional capacity of an infant. She, both the character and narrator, is so annoyingly obtuse I would have quit after a couple chapters, except the male narrator, Jacob Morgan was utterly compelling.

Also the Publisher’s Summary mentions the Chicago Underworld, yet the entire story takes place in Indiana without a single mention of Chicago.

I would NOT recommend this book with the very strong exception of Jacob Morgan’s narration.

I will be looking for anything else he has narrated! He’s seriously talented...he created a powerful impression via a character with very little emotion.

Very different plot and storyline⭐🔥🔥⭐⭐

Big big fan of Jacob Morgan but listeners there's a cliffhanger. I don't mind them and this one has me intrigued
and wanting more. I selected this because of Jacob. His character is dark..he's great at those. I will continue the series and won't give away any more spoilers other than to say to me he doesn't narrate enough of the chapters but when he does he's good. So I am looking forward to the next book because of the intrigue and storyline. The narration by both Charlotte and Jacob is good but I admit I'm a tad partial to Jacob. I cant help it. He's so darn sexy!!

Had to stop at Chapter 11

I abhor books where the author tells you how smart the MC is, but everything the MC says and does makes you cringe at their stupidity. This is one such book. I couldn’t finish it.

ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE

I COULDN'T FINISH IT. SO MANY NON SEQUITURS I WANTED TO PULL MY HAIR OUT. THE GIRLS ACTIONS WERE DUMB AND SHE WAS AN ACADEMIC. THIS IS ANOTHER MY BODY RULES MY BRAIN LUST STORIES. I CANT STAND THESE FROM BAD WRITERS. GIVE US A REASON TO BELIEVE SHE WANTS A STRANGER WHO IS CREEPY SO BAD SHE'LL MAKE DUMB DECISION AFTER DUMB DECISION. THE FEMALE AUTHOR INFLECTIONS WERE WEIRD.

A TANGLED WEB OF TWISTED THRILLS

Twisted, Obsessed and Bound is exactly how this very addictive trilogy affected me because, IMO, there’s no denying Aleatha Romig’s ability to write gripping thrillers. She creates intriguing multi-layered characters and describes sizzling chemistry you can almost feel.. and then injects passion and sweet sentiments in amongst smouldering sex scenes. This unpredictable suspenseful plot-line leaves tantalizing breadcrumbs for you to follow as the minefield of secrets, hints, revelations, twists and non-stop action builds to eventually deliver pulse-pounding hold-your-breath drama which keeps you on the edge of your seat. And, as I binge-listened to each delicious part, the wonderful narration brought the excitement, the feels and the flawed characters in this intricately woven storyline to life making each one a definite 5 star audiobook.

Worth a credit? Books 1 and 2 are free in the Audible Escape Package.. so yay you’ve got nothing to loose :) which leaves book 3 which was (for me) definitely worth a credit.

Twisted book 1

Laurel is the girl next door that grows up to become a Doctor research scientist. With 2 of her Doctor colleagues Laurel is on the edge of creating a formula for victims of PTSD, so they can live their life without having to live through the drama. What Laurel doesn't realize is that even her best intentions is surrounded by danger and several liars.

When she is kidnapped she doesn't understand why she isn't afraid of her kidnapper. She uses psychology to understand him and why he took her. For me, the natural instinct to ask questions is normal but I found Laurel sometimes a little dumb as a Doctor to ask some of the more mundane questions especially when her life is in danger.

Her kidnapper is someone to be feared, and doesn't understand with just one stare that would have most men wetting their pants, Laurel isn't repulsed or scared of him. At times he thinks he knows her and she him, but in order to find out answers they have to find out together who put the hit out on Laurel so he can keep her safe.

Charlotte North and Jacob Morgan do an amazing job at narrating this story -looking forward to the next book...warning cliff hanger!

Loved it

Twisted was my first Aleatha Romig novel and it was incredible. Mystery, suspense and non stop action, this story had me at the edge of my seat throughout. I was hooked and unable to put it down. The story was well-crafted and layered with twists and turns you wont see coming. The characters will intrigue you and will have you wanting to know more and that ending will stun you.
The audible version of this novel was narrated by Charlotte North and Jacob Morgan. These two were amazing together and I enjoyed listening to their narration.
Twisted was a fantastic read. I can't wait for the next book and I would highly recommend it to all lovers of romantic suspense.

Ended with a BOMB drop!!

Well then, that's what I can an ending!! I have to say, for a cliff hanger ending I feel slightly at ease and like there was some semblance of an ending. Oh no, the story between Kader and Laurel is no where over and the mystery of who and why is still unanswered. Aleatha Romig is one of the best trilogy writers. Twisted sets the stage to what I know is going to be utter perfection! There's a ton of chemistry between Laurel and Kader and I just have this feeling of something big for them on the horizon. I'm really intrigued and can't wait for the story to continue.

The narrators are just amazing for the parts. I really enjoy Jacob Morgan's voice. It's strong and deep yet it holds this deep sexy timber that Iove! Charlotte North is great for Laurel's part. Laurel is a conundrum... she's crazy intelligent but is missing some real world experience. Is it weird that I feel that in her voice? Like Charlotte really portrays what Mrs. Romig developed with her words.

Narrators were fantastic!

Although the both narrators were great I found the story slow but it is interesting and I'm sure it will pick up (hopefully) in the 2nd book. I'm curious to find out what happened in the past to Kader.
