My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Third time is a charm for sure! I loved this book and I am in utter love with this series! This series continues with the quietest member of the bunch with Magnum. To me Magnum was also the most mysterious. There wasn’t much background chatter on him in the last two books, so it was nice to finally get to read his story. Magnum’s story is so incredibly heartbreaking. Then we start to read about Brenda. Brenda if you remember is the nurse that helped Cyma with her daughter. Her story was equally interesting. Now someone is gunning for Brenda and Magnum is making it his mission to keep her safe. But while he is doing that, Magnum and Brenda start succumbing to this chemistry that keeps pulling them closer and closer together, which in turn helps help them from their past. This story has a lot of twists and turns and a lot of the unexpected. What I didn’t expect were the tears that I did cry for Magnum’s character. It kind of hit home in a lot of ways and I felt so bad for him. This story was also so incredibly steamy as well!!! But all in all, this was a seriously great book. I read it in one sitting and loved every minute. I could not put it down. I cannot wait for the next one!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Bonded is another part to the The Twisted Hearts Love Story series by Autumn Sand I’ve slowly been reading. This book tells of Magnum, who we are introduced to in previous books, but barely. He seems quiet, mysterious, and dangerous. My expectations for this book were high because previous stories in this series have grabbed my attention and turned me into a mob affiliate junkie! For real, I cannot get enough of this series!! All the men are alpha-male. Sexy. Borderline Dangerous. And the women are sexy, smart, capable. I’ve not had much interest in these types of stories, and was more into MC type romance/suspense/action, however this series is opening new doors for me.
Magnum, real name Carl, is employed by Tony Delany, who we get to know a lot of in the previous stories. Just like the previous stories, this one has scenes of a sexual nature not suitable for younger eyes, as well as vulgar language and swearing. And it has some very disturbing and maybe triggering scenes of violence involving children, so be aware if this is bothersome for you.
Placed mostly in New York, but partly in Amsterdam.
Brenda is a nurse. We meet her briefly in Ticks story because she is friends with Cyma, as well as was Laila’s (Cyma’s daughter) nurse, and Cyma is Ticks spouse. Her and Magnum have sparks for sure, but for reasons unclear, fail to hit it off at first. However all that changes when someone appears to stalk Brenda and Magnum takes whatever means necessary to keep her safe!
This book was much more than I expected! 5 out of 5 stars!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Bonded is the 3rd book in the amazing Twisted Hearts Love Story series by Autumn Sand. Each book in the series can be read as a stand-alone but as this is such a fantastic series, I’d recommend reading them all. And if you are going to read them all then it would add more to the enjoyment if you read them in order as this may prevent any possible spoilers.
We were introduced to the 2 main characters in previous books, Magnum as one of Tony’s men and Brenda was the paediatric nurse who looked after Cyma’s daughter Leila in the 2nd book.
Magnum had a horrific childhood having been physically and mentally abused by his father. In this book his father is ill and this causes Magnum to have more flashbacks and dreams about the abuse he suffered.
Brenda also has demons from her past that she’s trying to escape but it looks like her past is about to come back to haunt her in a major way.
This book is a gripping, romantic thriller. The story grabbed you from the very first page and did not let go. You are taken through a roller coaster of emotions and there are many twists and turns that you just don’t expect.
I loved both of these characters and how they both worked hard to help each other overcome their horrific pasts. The author writes fantastic characters who have so much depth to them and you really get invested in their stories. I have loved the books in this series so far and I’m now looking forward to reading book 4, ‘Impact’.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Bonded (A Twisted Hearts Love Story book 3) by Autumn Sand is a dark romantic suspense. You do not need to read previous books in this series to read Bonded, but the main characters (Magnum and Brenda) appear in earlier novel(s). In Bonded, we learn more about Magnum, who he is, what he does, and what motivates him. I loved his character, he’s the epitome of an alpha character who is strong, protective, fierce and more. Brenda is such a caring female lead with a haunted past that seeps back into her life. This story was a great intriguing read and I loved the drama and mystery that unfolded along with the undeniable chemistry. A page-turner from start to finish. Autumn Sand has amazing stories in the Twisted Hearts series.

MAYHEM (A TWISTED HEARTS LOVE STORY – BOOK 2) BY AUTUMN SAND – REVIEW BY MELISSA AGENA

Mayhem (A Twisted Hearts Love Story, #2)Mayhem by Autumn Sand
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Even better the second time around! Mayhem is the second book in the Twisted Hearts Love Story Series by Autumn Sand. Although we are not following Tony and Anaya in this book, they do have cameos. In this book we follow Tick and Cyma. Tick is Tony’s right hand man, former Marine and of course a serious ladies man. Cyma is a mom of a very young daughter who is just trying to get by through any means that she can. Tick’s background is the reason he is a player, but the moment he meets Cyma, that all ends. However, for Cyma she feels the pull toward him but her background keeps telling her to stay away. Tick had other plans. This book is so well written that it’s almost like you aren’t reading but you are a part of the story. I love the characters and the twists and turns that are incorporated within. This truly is a great book and a great series. I can’t wait for the next book!

Mayhem (A Twisted Hearts Love Story, #2)Mayhem by Autumn Sand
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Mayhem by Autumn Sand is the second book in the Twisted Hearts Love Story series and I think it’s safe to say I enjoyed it more than the first book. And I really really enjoyed the first one.

Tick is the right hand man to mob boss Tony who we meet in Bedlam, Book 1, and is emotionally stunted due to a tragic event that happened in his younger years. But that all changes when he has an unexplainable reaction to Cyma, who he meets in a sudden, violent, and unexpected way and she vanishes just as quickly as he meets her. A few days later he sees her again, in again the most unexpected place, and vows this time to get to know her better. He is persuasive, and sexy as can be!! And he doesn’t take no for an answer! Cyma has her reasons for saying no, but has a hard time meaning it
This story has humor, tragedy, danger, action, twists, vulgar language and steamy sex scenes in spades! This book is not for people who are adverse to violence, or cancer, and is definitely not for young eyes!! 5 stars from me and I cannot wait to read book 3!

Five Stars

I love the different song for each chapter. The author got my attention fast with that detail. I also liked Magnum. He is a guy to be feared but also cherished. All these men are just big softies. I love it. This one is my favorite so far. The rawness when magnum speaks his feelings. The realness from the pain and fear. I can’t get enough of this series. This author has me hooked. I’m ready to be a character in a book so I can find my HEA. Even though it’s sad to lose people there is also beauty in it. You learn to let old ghost go and allow new things in.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

  • Mayhem by Autumn Sand is the second book in the Twisted Hearts series. This book can be read as a stand-alone although the whole series is worth a read.
    This book was just as good as the first book. I enjoyed the characters and their story. I really felt a connection between them. The story was fast paced and I found it to be quite intense in places. It sucks you in to the story and made sure to not let up until the end.
    Although this book can be read as a stand-alone I really do recommend reading them all as the characters do cross over and they are genuinely just that good.View all my reviews

Deep breath.

Wow. This book had me white knuckled. Romance plus suspense plus a brooding dark dramatic plot… literally couldn’t catch my breath in the best possible way. Sand is a masterful storyteller and this book is just another installment that solidifies this opinion.

Mayhem (A Twisted Hearts Love Story, #2)Mayhem
By: Autumn Sand
My Rating: 3 of 5 stars

Mayhem (Twisted Hearts Love Story #2) by Autumn Sand was a pretty okay read, full of drama, romance, and heavy feels.

My first read from this author, I went in with an open mind as this book is a little out of my comfort zone. The plot line was good, the opening was a right kick to the feels, what a heavy way to start a book. I have to say, I don’t know if it that was the right choice. Not that is wasn’t well written or interesting, it just sets a specific heavy tone for the book, and moving onto that 10 year later, the tone shift didn’t unfortunately, work for me.

Now the MC’s weren’t bad but I did have a problem with Tick at the start. His first meeting with Cyma wasn’t, for me, all that connecting or, good. Yeah sure he saved her and all, but hell, afterwards he was acting worts then the thugs. He was drooling over her, right after the poor girl had a traumatic experience. I don’t know what the author was going for, but I personally found it creepy and it left a bad taste for Tick.

Moving forward, I fell more into this read, and when the plot picked up, things got interesting, and intense. The writing is hooking, and despite my misgivings about Tick at the start of the book, I couldn’t stop reading. The plot elements were great, and the ending was sweet, bringing the story full circle. It was nice to see, and it help redeemed Tick.

Overall this book is a recommendation from me, and take my stamp of approval that you my like all the things I didn’t, but as I have said, the story itself is great, just needs a little find tuning.

Happy Reading
