In New York Times bestselling author Cynthia Eden's latest novel featuring the Last Option Search Team (LOST), one agent is forced to face her past as she uncovers secrets about the man who may be the key to her future.


Criminal psychologist Dr. Sarah Jacobs is all too familiar with the kind of bad boys who belong behind bars. But the dark, dangerous man she meets in the New Orleans underworld is a new kind of ruthless, and all too irresistible.

Jax Fontaine doesn't claim to be a good guy, but he's loyal to his own code and brutally honest about what he wants. He and Sarah may be worlds apart, but when they're skin to skin, nothing matters but the heat between them.

And when a deranged killer targets Sarah, Jax will do whatever it takes to keep her safe.



BOOK REVIEW:

Giddy up! I totally dug this instalment.

Jax Fontaine.

Man, he gives me a lady boner. He is such a great character. He has depth and intrigue. He’s a little wild and scary. He is ultimately good, but he does cross the line when he needs to.

Jax is the best male lead in this series for me to date and Sarah is the best female lead. We see below the layers of both these characters. Sarah is no damsel-in-distress, she is a leading lady who is intelligent and has a past.

We are told Jax is the leader of a motorcycle gang, but I see no references to that within this series so far, other than being told. If we weren’t told that, I would simply think he is a guy who lives on the dark side, owns many properties in New Orleans and has scraped himself off the bottom of the bucket. He has clawed his way through life and become somebody who fights the system his way. In Twisted you see a seedier side to Jax. He has attitude. He still does in Shattered, but he plays a part, because the police only seem to want to know that side of him—to only believe in that side of him.

Now let’s talk villains. Cynthia got it right, for me anyway, in this book. She hides it well, doesn’t over enthusiastically try to push us towards other characters. This is the way I like it. Let me theorize without trying to force me to think who the killer or mastermind is.

Love the twist at the end.

Da…da...da…daaaaaa!

I’m hoping Wade’s book up next will have some Jax in it and will be just as good. Wade is always popping up in this series, but I don’t really know him other than he does jump on assumptions a little, but he's always ready to dig in and help the team.

Worth reading this series in order, or else you will miss out on Jax’s entrance in Twisted and not get the Emma connection with Jax.

I have Torn in my hands ready to go.
