Mayhem (Twisted Hearts Love Story Book 2) by Autumn Sand – Review by Karyn Taylor

Mayhem (A Twisted Hearts Love Story, #2)Mayhem by Autumn Sand
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.

Mayhem (A Twisted Hearts Love Story, #2)Mayhem by Autumn Sand
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.

Mayhem (Twisted Hearts Love Story #2)
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.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

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.

Bedlam (Twisted Hearts Love Story Book 1) by Autumn Sand – Review by Ashleigh Whitwell

Bedlam (A Twisted Hearts Love Story, #1)Bedlam by Autumn Sand
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Bedlam is the first of the Twisted Hearts Love Story series by Autumn Sand. This story promises it all; danger, deception and a forbidden love affair. If this doesn’t make you want to jump straight into the book, I don’t know what will. While I love a romantic thriller, I’m not always one for the darker reads. Something about Bedlam had me hooked before I’d even started and I’m so pleased it did. This was an exciting and addictive read that I cannot recommend enough.

From the very beginning of Bedlam we learn everything is not as it seems in Anaya’s life. While it might appear she has the perfect set-up, nice apartment, designer clothes, this is far from the truth. Her relationship with her long-term boyfriend has all but fizzled out, but how do you end things when before-mentioned boyfriend is the head of a mafia empire? A mafia romance you say? Not quite! Ignacio, or Iggy, is anything but the warm, romantic type. His scenes with Anaya were always difficult to read and very disturbing. His hold over her is strong, but she still manages to form friendships and a career outside of her life with him. It’s her career that throws her in Tony’s path. Now he is a man worth talking about! Tony and Anaya immediately have an intense connection and sparks fly. Unlike her and Ignacio’s scenes, I loved reading the scenes between Anaya and Tony. They were hot; so prepare yourself for some very believable chemistry.

Before you start reading Bedlam, be warned that there are some serious triggers. This is not an easy-to-read book, so be ready for some really uncomfortable reading. Right from the start we are exposed to some deeply sad events and it only gets worse as the story moves on. This book is filled with deception, danger and lies so expect everything that comes with those labels. However, this story is also hopeful and there are some really lovely scenes. While most of these are between Anaya and Tony, look out for some unexpected scenes with Fred; my favourite character!

Bedlam is both the book I was expecting, but also full of surprises. It is darker than I thought it would be but also has some lighter, touching moments. I read this in one sitting; yes, it really is that addictive! For anyone who loves a mafia or dark romance read, I would recommend this in a heartbeat. I can’t wait to read more of this series!

TICK

I don’t need much.
As the right-hand man to the mob boss,
I have everything I need.
Women, money, power.

I’ve seen too much,
Hurt too long to want anything more.

But when I hear the screams,
I go into overdrive,
Driven to help a woman in need.

What I didn’t realize is she was going to save me.

CYMA

There’s no “happily-ever-after.”
There’s only heartache and pain.
I learned that the hard way.

Now, I have one goal: protect my daughter.
But when the rugged and sexy man saves me,
All I want is to bolt.
After all, I’ve got enough to deal with right now.

But a chance encounter proves me wrong.
Can we find a way to find love in the middle of mayhem?

Impact: Twisted Hearts Love Story by Autumn Sand – Review by Jenni Bishop

Impact: Twisted Hearts Love StoryImpact: Twisted Hearts Love Story by Autumn Sand
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Impact is the fourth book in the Twisted Hearts Love Story series by Autumn Sand which is a dark romance series. It can read as a standalone but should be read as part of a series. There are lots of twists and turns, pain and heartbreak, betrayal and love and because you are invested in the characters you feel every emotion as you follow them on their journey from the past to the future.

Finally we get to Manny’s story and it does not disappoint and I really enjoyed that it was written in his POV. Manny is a man that has been broken all his life that has been ripe with so much tragedy and betrayal it makes you wonder how he has survived. Sometimes I wanted to smack some sense into him and make he see what was happening right under his nose. Other times I just wanted to hold him and take away all his pain.

Is he ready to let go of the past and move on to a better future? Will he finally realise that the right one has been in front of him all his life? Will he learn to let those that truly love him, in?

I have really enjoyed reading this series and all characters and stories interconnect, which makes reading them much more intriguing and helps to connect you to the characters.
