Amie's Review of Distorted Love by T.L. Smith ~ RELEASE BLITZ ~

Title: Distorted Love
Duet: Dark Intentions #1
Author: T.L. Smith
Genre: Romance Suspense
Release Date: March 20, 2018
I loved him from the age of sixteen.
Hated him from the age of eighteen.
He disappeared at the age of nineteen.
We started off as enemies, then fast became lovers.
But our story isn’t a happily ever after.
It was a story of a king and a peasant. Can you guess which I was?
I knew we weren’t meant to be.
You see, he fell in love with her first. He loved me last.
I'm not someone's second choice.
Not even for the boy who stole my heart.
I'm someone's first.
Now, I just have to remember that.

From the ever twisted and dark mind of one of my faves comes the story of Ryken and Saskia !! This is kind of a love triangle 2 ways so maybe like a love square !! There are dark issues and possible triggers for some due to the nature of Ryken's family business. This is a duet so do NOT expect an HEA or even a resolution , be warned if you want the whole story you should wait for the next piece to be released. 

Saskia comes from the wrong side of town. No father around and a mother who cares more for her addictions than she does her daughter. Because Saskia does have some upstanding family around she is getting a good education at an amazing school along with her cousin. She catches the eye of the school bad boy but when she brushes it off as nothing her cousin takes no time in seeking him out and latching on. Ryken and Saskia have an immediate and toxic connection. They cannot keep away and don't even try despite Livia and the threat of his father. The classic story of you may love her but you belong with the other. Ryken settles for Livia because Saskia is bad for him and he will only bring danger to her. The whole Ryken/Livia thing bothered me because Livia went from the decent cousin to the nasty cousin in a split second and I just hated that she was getting what Saskia wanted. Now when Stiles came along I was thrilled for Saskia , Stiles was amazing and I wish we had more of him. With all this emotional angst , push and pull action going on it is hard to believe we then add in intimidating men , trafficking and loads of danger. Never a dull moment for anyone and when things come to a head after their time apart it will rip you open waiting for Ryken to make amends and right the wrongs...

Sinister Love (Dark Intentions Duet #2)
