"With Twisted Fates, Kitty Thomas is at her best, creating an intensely emotional dark ride you won't want to get off." -- Anna Zaires, New York Bestselling Author of Twist Me
When Lindsay Smith brought her to the house, it was to train and sell her. They both knew it. She'd agreed to this arrangement. She wanted to belong to someone. But Lindsay wanted her to be his.
Three days into her stay at the pleasure house, Shannon Foster's life is forever destroyed by a sociopathic monster. Lindsay saved her life that day, but the scars bind her to the house without a future.
Now, eight years later, Lindsay saves her once again, only this time he's playing for keeps.
NOTE: This is a standalone in the Pleasure House world. You don't have to read any other book before reading this one.
I can’t believe we are on to book five of a series that wasn’t originally supposed to be a series at all. I remember reading about Lindsay, the psychiatrist who starts women on their path to house. He was never my favorite of the trainers, but wow, his training scene was hot in Guilty Pleasures. So, needless to say, I was excited to hear his story.
Shannon might be Lindsay’s biggest regret. He brought her to the house way too soon. And just a few days in the house, she makes Brian angry (protip: never make Brian angry, he is a literal psychopath, see Broken Dolls). Brian did his worse and then she is unable to be sold because of the physical scars he left. While those scars are bad, the mental scars are just as bad. Shannon is working at the spa in the house, but just making it through day to day. Not really living.
I had a great time with this addition to the Pleasure House series. This has been a really fun series. Lindsay is an interesting character and it was great to finally get his story. Shannon is also a great character and I enjoyed getting to know her. I would also be remiss if I didn’t mention Ralph, Lindsay’s filthy mouthed African Grey Parrot.
It was too quiet when he reached the bedroom. “Shannon?”
“You’re a very dirty girl. Do you know what I want to do with this body?” the bird squawked.
“Shut up, Ralph.” He should have kept that goddamned bird at the office.
If you like hard core BDSM and sharing of partners, this is a fun series. You can read any of the books in whatever order you would like, though I think series order (which isn’t chronological order) would be my favorite way to read it. And all the books are just as hot. Highly recommended.
