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!

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!

  • 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

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Mayhem is the 2nd book in the Twisted Hearts Love Story series by Autumn Sand. Although there are recurring characters, each book can be read as a standalone. I had not read the first book Bedlam before reading Mayhem and did not feel that I was missing any key parts to the story. Although, now that I have read Mayhem and really enjoyed it, I’d like to go back and discover Tony and Anaya’s story.
Dante (or Tick as he’s also known) is Tony’s right hand man. He still hasn’t got over the death of his beloved pregnant, fiancée Kayla, in a car crash on their wedding day 10 years previously and subsequently the death of prematurely born Dante jnr.
Cyma is a struggling single mum, who is juggling 2 jobs, one as a stripper, to help pay of the debts she has with loan shark Wheeler. Debts she has risen up in order to pay for the healthcare of daughter Leila who is battling Leukaemia.
A chance meeting brings Danta and Cyma together and Dante is totally smitten. He will do anything, and I mean anything to make life better for Cyma.
This book is dark and gritty and will drag you into it’s grip from the very beginning. It has so much emotion and so many twists and turns that will keep you glued to this book and you will not want to put it down. I loved it so much. I already have the 3rd book in the series ‘Bonded’ on my kindle waiting for me and I can’t wait to see what the author has in mind for Magnum and Brenda.

5-Stars

Mayhem begins with mist compelling scene that really pulled me in and set the tone for the story. It seriously had me in tears and I loved seeing the main character come to terms with what happened later on. Dante was an amazing gentleman yet also played his role as protective bad boy well. Cyma had a unique name and I loved how strong she was as a mother, lover, and woman in general. I really felt like this story was full of action and romance while maintaining the ability to be an easy read. Cyma and Dante both were complex characters to begin with but I felt that they changed as time went on. I loved how this story played out! I definitely recommend this novel!

Four Stars

When you’re the right of the mafia boss you don’t need much. Tick is a man who gets what he wants or he takes it. Through the whole book I was torn over liking and disliking him. How can a man be so soft and hard at the same time. Cyma was a little weak for my taste but she was a good character. The author is giving us so much in this series. The characters are well written and the story holds your attention. I really like how these men and women are coming together in unlikely situations. That you could be the one thing that a man built on a hard life gives up everything for. You could be the one light in his darkness.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Mayhem (Twisted Hearts Love Story Book 2) by Autumn Sand is a contemporary romance/suspense. This novel was an engaging read that kept me wondering what was waiting around the corner. Drama was surfacing in this story in almost every corner. Tick was the epitome of an alpha male, but in the most amazing ways. His character knew no bounds and was strong, insanely protective and at the same time charming and soft. Cyma’s life changed when Tick came in. The interactions between Cyma and Tick were phenomenal and the epitome of a push and pull relationship. The attraction was undeniable, having the wills were strong between the two and it becomes a question can they really take a chance or will the shadows waiting to pounce take everything down with them? Autumn Sand delivered a great story that fits well with the theme of the series.

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

By Autumn Sand
Rated 5 stars

Another great story from Autumn Sand! She is amazing in how she tells both sides of a story. She give me preconceived notions about a character then when that character gets their story…I am in awe of what has made them how they are today. She breaks them down and build them back up. In the previous book he was Tick. In this book we get to know Dante…another side of him.

Tick..Tick..Tick! How I have come to like you. I like how you got your nickname. I like how you are a strong personality but don’t push all the time. I like how you are with Cyma.

Cyma! You are amazing! I am glad Tick showed up that night and met you. He has become so cute since meeting you. Don’t tell him I said that…he would probably have a coronary.

It’s great spending time with Anaya, Tony and the boys. They have such a great camaraderie between them. Wonderful characters and crazy good story!

My fav line in the story—

“No one is perfect and no one’s life is a fairy tale. We just hope to have those fairy tale moments from time to time. “

This is such a true statement! Whether you are a fictional character or not.

From start to finish, a fantastic book from Autumn Sand. I was spellbound on the first page and couldn’t stop reading until I finished the last sentence. The characters were strong and relatable. There was intrigue and romance. Strong chemistry and connection. Plot moved well and was never stagnant. Continue to really enjoy Sand’s writing and this series in particular. Very well written.
