Twisted by Elisabeth Naughton

Book Description:

NICK – Leader of the half-breeds, the last true hero, and the son of one psychotic Titan. He’s spent his life fighting a dark pull toward the gods he doesn’t understand. But as his powers grow stronger and his destiny is revealed, no one knows whether he will choose to fight for the side of good or succumb to the sinister lure of evil…even him.

My Thoughts:
This book definitely lived up to it's name.  Nick is a slave.  A prisoner down below and they are determined to break him, no matter what that entails.  Cynna is in charge of his torture, in a way, but has issues of her own to deal with.  Nick's powers are too sought after to ignore and his lineage is unlike anyone else's.  Once he is free, he has to choose if he lets the darkness that pulls at him consume him or fights against it.
I felt so bad for Nick at several different places in this book, but most especially where the soul mates were concerned.  I wasn't sure about Cynna's angle at the start but it showed itself as the story moved along.  I have to say that honestly the story line wasn't there for me.  I think mostly because I had issues with Cynna torturing Nick then becoming his lover.  That and their connection wasn't there for me other than as a way for him to handle his power and her to assuage her guilt.  I think mostly the story was there to get to the sex scenes, at least in my opinion.
This was a 2/5 for me.  There was just more that I didn't care for than I did.
Thank you to the publisher for the review copy of this book (via netgalley).  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
