Twist me Trilogy by Anna Zaires
- [x] “Twist me” (1) by Anna Zaires -2
FYI some spoilers. I also reviewed this book as I read it.
Not impressed with Nora. She’s weak and childish. He shaves her? She wouldn’t have done that before her date? Why was he so gentle and she so submissive? Nora is so annoying. She’s got no backbone. I’ve read 185 pages and am dying to stop but I paid for this series so I’ll continue a while longer. What the blip attracts Julian, a rich, cosmopolitan guy to such an immature little girl like Nora? I’m gonna gag. Page 370 and Nora is so irritating. Page 435 and I’m dying reading this boring book about sexual manipulation. Her obedience is annoying and boring. She has no spine whatsoever. How can she be tolerated? Her minor tantrums are ridiculous. I’m seriously gonna throw up. Yuck! Julian kisses her after she’s vomited 5 times? Now I’m definitely gonna spew. It finally gets somewhat interesting around page 644. She goes unconscious for hours and gets thrown from the explosion despite being much further away than Julian but Lucas, being so close to explosion, survives unharmed and drags Julian to safety? Seriously?
I’ve read many books by Anna Zaires and this one is the worst. Nora is spineless. Perhaps if there was a chapter or two from Julian’s POV, we could better understand his obsession. It only seems that Julian wants Nora for her similarity to Maria and her obedience. Her character has no substance. She has tiny acts of childish rage and then is back to her submissive, obedient, irritating self.
- [x] “Keep me” (2) by Anna Zaires -3
I must admit my expectations of this book are very very low, given “Twist me”. There may be a few spoilers.
I’m glad it starts with Julian’s POV. Nora is like a trained puppy, his obvious, obedient pet. Not sure why Julian doesn’t believe the island is no longer safe. Nora wasn’t taken from there. Just get another Beth. Her small bursts of rebellion are pathetic. Not sure why Julian doesn’t understand that Nora would not want an innocent person hurt to get her to obey. Truthfully, Julian starts to annoy me too. Julian is a bit of an idiot and could easily sidestep some of Nora’s outbursts by explaining things like the marriage and the trackers. Julian’s torture is well described. Majid has fear of Nora simply because she shot him in the wrist and elbow? Unlikely. He’s probably been tortured before or hurt while training. It’s nice to see Nora finally be tough, if only for a few pages.
This book was slightly better than the first but most likely because I’m now resigned to Nora’s spineless character.
- [x] “Hold me” (3) by Anna Zaires -3
What about Nora’s exams during Julian’s captivity and recovery? The whole baby issue added an interesting aspect to the story. I can sympathize with both parties. I don’t like that Nora can’t express anger or argue without punishment. She can’t be herself. What he wants, he gets, regardless of her wishes. He could have forced her to be pregnant if he wished it. She has no say. Why kind of relationship is that? Oh that’s right, she’s a pet, a plaything. I’m amazed at how much time is dedicated to sex, given he’s a busy arms dealer. He apparently also has time to jerk off twice a day? Seriously? They have sex almost every chapter. The ending was ok.
The whole S&M thing totally disturbs me. Though I have difficulty understanding the pleasure derived from this type of relationship, it didn’t affect my review.
