    This book has a lot going on from action to suspense to passion! The heroine, Aria, is a beautiful, strong willed, independent young woman with a twisted view of reality. She knows what she wants and never hesitates. She is intelligent and never naive or weak. Aria is a strong female character and surprised me quite a bit throughout the novel. She's recruited as a male trafficker. Her job is to find young, good-looking men, take them away and break them down psychologically. She becomes their Ma This book has a lot going on from action to suspense to passion! The heroine, Aria, is a beautiful, strong willed, independent young woman with a twisted view of reality. She knows what she wants and never hesitates. She is intelligent and never naive or weak. Aria is a strong female character and surprised me quite a bit throughout the novel. She's recruited as a male trafficker. Her job is to find young, good-looking men, take them away and break them down psychologically. She becomes their Master and then they are sold to lonely old women at high prices. The trafficking victims are subject to violence and brain washing and Aria is perfect for the job. I loved her spunk and desire to excel at her new dubious job with an extremely high salary! Aria never dates and considers herself incapable of feeling love. Mika knows exactly what's her job and he's very attracted to her. Undeniable sparks fly when she's forced to share a roof with him, but Aria's unconventional character is the reason that their relationship hasn't the chance to even start. Mika plans to convince her they’re meant to be together. Sex between them is perfect. Can he convince her he’s playing for keeps? The suspense builds more tension and adds depth to this enjoyable story. I'd prefer there were more moments of extra spicy tease, and more vivid images that would stimulate the senses and give a more convincing romance. The story was well written and kept my interest. I would recommend this book to other readers. ARC kindly provided in exchange for an honest review.

The strong thrive and the weak get trampled,or taken advantage of. Aria is a girl that kicks ass and takes numbers. We met her in Degrade,book 1 of this series. She is strong,dominant,and seemingly without a conscience. She is a human trafficker,her job is to kidnap men,break their spirit,and then they are sold. She doesn't necessarily do her job only for the money. She does it because she is good at it,the best! You may not like her very much in the beginning,but by the end you will! And, you have to admire her use and skill with weapons! Wait! Before you find her absolutely detestable, you should know how she became the way she is. You definitely have to meet the man who wants to show her what love is! I Loved this Book! The author,T.L. Smith, tells us One Twisted Tale about our perceptions! Things are not always cut and dry!! I highly recommend this book! Does Aria find out the meaning of love and sacrifice?

    Oh my goodness....where do I even start? Let's start with the title: Twisted Perception Twisted doesn't even begin to describe these characters and the dark world they live in. Aria's perception of life, love, and happiness is unlike any other female lead character I have read. Now let's break down the Synopsis: “This story is not one of rainbows and happily ever after’s, so if you’re looking for that, stop reading.” Very true! This is dark tale, but not completely without romance. It's just a twist Oh my goodness....where do I even start?

Aria's perception of life, love, and happiness is unlike any other female lead character I have read. Now let's break down the Synopsis: “This story is not one of rainbows and happily ever after’s, so if you’re looking for that, stop reading.” Very true! This is dark tale, but not completely without romance. It's just a twisted kind of romance that I quite enjoyed! “My story is fucked and deluded, just like the person telling it.” Aria's back story is heartbreaking. Her troubled past has molded her into the woman she grew to be. She may be viewed as broken, but I would describe her as bent, not completely broken. “You see, I’m a trafficker. I traffic gorgeous young men for my clients. The lonely old women whose husbands are more than likely off cheating on them.” Yes, you read that right. She breaks men to sell to woman to own as their possession. The process in which this occurs is not for the weak at heart or stomach. Be warned, but don't be warned off. It's quite interesting to fall into the dark storyline this author created. “You’re not going to like me; I’m not going to lie.” I actually DID like her. She is such a unique character that it was impossible not to. “I’m a bitch, a manipulator, the type of girl your mother warned you about.” Obviously, Mika wasn't warned. But he is just as twisted as Aria, if not more so. They have both met their match! So in case you couldn't tell, I really enjoyed this book. It's fast paced, intriguing, and deliciously dark. I would give almost anything to live in this author's mind for just one day. I can't even imagine the craziness that goes on in there that doesn't even make it to the pages. Lol. When Aria first appeared in Degrade, I knew I wanted more from her, and boy did I get it. I suppose you can read this book as a standalone, but I highly recommend reading Degrade first. I guarantee you will enjoy Zeke and Bexley's story.

    I received an ARC for an honest review for United Indue Book Blog. I read half of this book and realized I needed a little more background on the characters so I went and read Degrade.

Mika has some serious creepy stalker skills and goes to any lengths to make Aria his. There are some pretty dark and twisted moments but also some tender moments. This book is packed with sexual tension and the bedroom scenes are pretty HOT. I had some laugh out loud moments and times I wanted to shake both Aria and Mika. The story flows nicely and even with moving at a fast paced I didn't feel any details were left out that are need to know. I loved the characters even the supporting ones and want their stories (Dominic and Sarena's please? I know there is something naughty between them!). I enjoy reading TL Smith's writing style and about the twisted characters she has in her brain!

    This book is a one of a kind no one has ever written a story like this. Aria is like no other female character I have ever read. What's outstanding about this author, she shows no fear when it came to writing this story, it's not a fairy tale, but has a fairy tale ending. Mika is a great male counterpart for Aria he doesn't take any of her shit and is in lust with her as much as she is with him. Ballsy, dominate, kick ass and a great lay are usually male trait, add shorts and heels you have Aria This book is a one of a kind no one has ever written a story like this.

The things she is able to do would make you shudder, this girl has no fear and has balls the size of any man. Aria has become a favourite female character of mine. I usually don't give the female character any thought, but in this case she could not and would not be ignored. . Love, love loved her.

She shows no remorse, no feeling, she just simply gets the job done. Her reward. Money and plenty of it. But in Twisted Perception we get to see what makes Aria tick. We get to discover her secrets, her nightmares. We get to discover her inner thoughts, why she does what she does and why she gets the thrill out of it. We get to see Aria develop and grow in a dark and dangerous world, owning it, thriving on it and winning at everything she does. But what we also get to see are her scars, her past hurt and real pain suffered. We get to see and feel what Aria has blocked out most of her life, struggling internally with the demons that keep her awake at night. It’s a book that you simply do not want to miss. Twisted Perception……Guys what a brilliant read. It’s dark and dangerous. It’s sinfully sexy. It’s deliciously hot. It’s wicked. It’s as twisted as any novel can get. Guys you WILL NOT be able to put it down. From beginning to end we were absolutely hooked. We loved the banter between the characters (especially between Aria and Zeke who we met in Degrade). We loved the sinfully delicious. mouth watering scenes that had us completely hot and bothered. We loved the connection we found we had with Aria, feeling all of her emotions, her struggles and her ghosts. We just loved it. To TL Smith, thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to read and review Twisted Perception. Again you have given us yet another twisted as sin novel that we absolutely loved. A definite 5 star read.

    "You're not going to like me; I'm not going to lie. I'm a bitch, a manipulator, the type of girl your mother warned you about." That is your introduction to Aria. I met her in Degrade and was instantly intrigued by this character. I mean who wouldn't be interested in this hard-ass woman who finds men to sell to rich women? This was her story. We learned how she got her job, what brought her to the place she is in now and what happens when she has these feelings she can't quite explain.

We learned how she got her job, what brought her to the place she is in now and what happens when she has these feelings she can't quite explain. I spent much of the book fascinated by Aria; she is a bit crazy though. She likes her job, she likes inflicting pain, she's good at what she does but no where are their feelings. She never really had friends or boyfriends. She didn't go on dates or do "girly" stuff. When she started working for Dominic she just did her job because she liked it. Then when Mika comes into the picture she doesn't understand what she feels and spends most of her time pushing him away. Mika has other plans though but even the best laid plans don't always work out when dealing with someone like Aria. This book had its funny moments, scorching hot moments, shocking moments and every now and then some heartfelt moments. The flow was good and we moved through time quickly while still getting enough information that it didn't seem rushed. I'm a fan of this author as she always keeps me intrigued from beginning to end so I can't wait to see what she comes up with next.

"I'd go more with hot-panty-melting-throw-your-mother-out-the-door good looking, but hey, that's me.' OMFG!!! The sex in this book is HAWT!!!! #NoPantiesRequired This is Book 2 in the Flawed series and I'm telling you now...Go and read this series NOW!!!!! It is not a romance book so don't be expecting that, but do expect to undoubtedly find another Author that you will have in your favourites column. You need to read Degrade to get the most out of this book. And that is another 5 star read that will not disappoint you.

Mika is a sexy bad bad man with a brain, muscles, tattoos, and the sex drive of a maniac. No wonder he wants Aria so bad they seem like a perfect match. He followed her for over a year before he actually showed himself but only for business or so she thought. All of that being said she doesn't want a relationship period, so he's screwed there and believe me ALL pun is intended. Aria the [email protected]$$ warrior and the [email protected]$$ business man but are they too much for each other? This book was just AWESOME from the first page. I could not get over how much I loved these two characters and their hardness. You wait for them to literally kill each other or well other things.

The story is hot, fast paced and even tho some things might be twisted I loved every single bit cause that's just my kind of book.

    A quick twisted read. I felt as if the story could've more to it. It just didn't feel like it's exactly finished. I loved the lead character. She was fiery and she could hold her own.

    I read this book years ago, way before I started to review. Aria is one of the most kick arse female leads I have read. Fell in love with this book.

    "We're twisted, we have a twisted perception of love, life and people. It's not bad, it's just the way we are wired. We've been broken, but we fix ourselves in the only way we know how to by closing ourselves off or inflicting pain on others. We are unique and we're hard to love." Having previously met Aria in Degrade, her no nonsense approach to life had already piqued my interest. She thinks outside the box, doesn't worry about the consequences and lives everyday as if it's the last. This is he "We're twisted, we have a twisted perception of love, life and people.

We are unique and we're hard to love." Having previously met Aria in Degrade, her no nonsense approach to life had already piqued my interest. She thinks outside the box, doesn't worry about the consequences and lives everyday as if it's the last. This is her story and it can be read as a standalone but I thoroughly enjoyed reading previous from Degrade in Aria's point of view as she is one twisted lady! Aria is a human trafficker; luring men unaware of their fate, capturing men to break them down and turn them into Thralls. Sex slaves willing to do anything their Mistress asks of them without hesitation or remorse and Aria is the without a doubt very talented. How did she find herself in the world of sex and ownership... Aria is not a victim nor is she unwilling to be part of her new life style, she revels in her sexuality embracing her body's need for pleasure. Having no issue exploiting men who she traps with her sexuality she loves her job and all it entails. Relying on her twin Jagger to keep her grounded, he too becomes involved in the shady world Aria has found herself in. Wealth power and sex fill their days...but things never remain the same and a new boss blows Aria's world apart. Mika, a man in the shadows a voice in the dark has been watching the twisted firecracker that is Aria. Desperate to own her, keep her and tame her he does everything in his power to manipulate the game to win her. Changing the rules and keeping an ace up his sleeve Mika will not stop till she is his. But having never been conventional can Aria see through his actions to the emotions that motivate him? A kick ass foray into the flip side of the sex trade, told from the trainers pony of view and not the victims this story is different and one not to be missed. Aria is like no other character I have read about, fiesty and head strong she is totally unrepentant. I love her carefree spirit and her black and white approach to life. Mika is sizzling hot dark and dangerous moving heaven and earth to get the girl of his dreams. The scenes with Bexley and Zeke add humour, catching up with the main characters in Degrade add another perceptive to the story making it more rounded and complete. I loved every page! Fortunate to beta read this story I have loved the experience as this book flourished to life and the characters grew and changed. TL Smith has done it again...a mind twisting read that is sure to leave you feeling a little hung over! A four and a half star wtf read.

The synopsis of her newest titles always intrigue us and the covers are just as amazing! Degrade, what can we say? It was one of our favourites for the year and when we found out Twisted Perception, the following book, which is Aria’s was on its way we couldn't wait to get our hands on it. Aria had us enthralled in Degrade! Aria is sassy, she doesn't hold back, what you see is what you get. Men don't intimidate her and she can hold her own, she lives life to the fullest. Her job, well it's not for the light hearted and takes a smart women to do what she does! Aria is a human trafficker, men are her speciality. She lures them, breaks them down and turns them into Thralls. She has these men falling to their knees ready for the highest buyers every desire. There's no hesitation or remorse for what she does she’s damn good at her job, so much so that she she is in high demand. A mystery man has piqued her interested, he knows who she is and what she does. The deliciously sexy stranger is constantly watching her, making his move and taking a taste of Aria. The taste is leaving him and her thirsty for more. Aria doesn't have a lot of friends, she doesn't really like people. One girl she has become close to her, her big boss's girlfriend, Bexley. When Bexley gets kidnapped she doesn't take it lightly, the down side is she is left with an ultimatum and now a new boss, Mika, who just happens to be her mystery man. Mika is an interesting man and makes some changes Aria is not happy with but she abides by to ensure his threats aren't met. Mika was a man she wanted her fill with before she knew who he was, now he’s her boss and she’s living under his roof things are about to become a whole lot harder. Mika is a strong sexy tattooed man who wants Aria like a man who wants his last breath. Mika is very confusing for Aria he continually pushes himself into her life and she doesn't know how to process his actions or the strange things she is feeling for him. This is all new to her and scares the crap out of her. Will all these feelings become to much for her to handle leading her to push Mika away? TL Smith has done an outstanding job with the delivery of Twisted Perception. Aria is one of those badass characters with sass and has a take no crap attitude you can't help but love. BUT our heart’s broke for her, not knowing how to truly love or show affection because you want to rather than have to, especially with family is heart breaking. She is woman with demons, nightmares and feelings, someone who doesn't know how to truly love another person, her perception on life is twisted.

    Wow, where do I start with this review. I was so happy when I reached the end of Degrade book #1 in T. L. Smith’s Flawed series and discovered that Book #2, Twisted Perception was going to be Aria’s story. I loved her character from the moment she was introduced to the story line, and you just knew that a woman with her exclusive skills set was going to make for an extremely interesting read.

I was so happy when I reached the end of Degrade book #1 in T. L. Smith’s Flawed series and discovered that Book #2, Twisted Perception was going to be Aria’s story. I loved her character from the moment she was introduced to the story line, and you just knew that a woman with her exclusive skills set was going to make for an extremely interesting read. And it didn’t disappoint. Aria is a sex trafficker; specifically her job is to hunt down attractive young men, break them down, bend them to her will and then sell them off to rich older ladies to keep for their personal use. It’s is a dark and twisted read and the process involved is not for the faint-hearted reader but it is definitely worth it; Just to know her character and the heart breaking past she endured to shape her into the woman that is now known as the best in the business. It was so refreshing to read a story with a female lead character that is the dominant figure and has the men fearing her bad side. She is such a strong, independent, kick ass woman who knows what she wants and gets it. Her past has left her with a warped view on love and relationships and sex is really the only thing she understands, so when Mika comes into her life with the specific goal to make her his, she is not interested in the slightest. Mika has wanted Aria since the moment he laid eyes on her, and the way he will stop at nothing until she succumbs to him, has him bordering on slightly stalkerish, but his character is so damn likable and sweet at the same time it was hard to let that affect my opinion of him. I really loved how T. L. Smith has managed to intertwine passion and sweet romance into such a dark subject matter and then added plenty of light-hearted humour as well, to create a storyline that just worked effortlessly with all of those elements combined. And the sex! Plentiful and HOT! This author can certainly write a captivating lust filled scene. Twisted Perception can be read as a standalone but I recommend that you do yourself a favour and go back and read Degrade first, not because there is any information missing, but because you get to see Aria as well as other’s from a whole different perception and it just adds so much extra to her story. I’m looking forward to seeing what else this author has in store for us in the Flawed series because there are definitely a few other favourites of mine that I would love to see more from.

A lot of this story is told in Aria remembering events from the past and then gradually it transitions to present tense. This book like Degrade is full of dark themes so you have to leave your judgement at the door. It states right in the beginning that it was not a happy story and that you might end up hating the main character. While I didn't agree with all her choices I do really like Aria. She is such a strong female character, she uses every trick in her arsenal to achieve her goals and who cares what the fallout is along the way. I'm not typically a fan of dark romance but these books are so well written that you can't help but get sucked in and get intrigued with the story. With Degrade I had to set my Kindle down a few times and I wasn't sure I could finish it. But with Twisted Perception was easier, I'm not sure why it seemed less threatening with the roles reversed where the woman was the one in power than it did in Degrade where it was the man who was mostly in control and that fact alone gave me a lot to think about as I was reading and even more after I finished. One might not think of these books as psychologically fascinating initially but as someone who has studied both psychology and sociology it made me think hardcore. I think that was a sneaky side effect that T.L planted in there ;) The closer we get to the end of the book the more we see her character evolve and Mika is a huge turning point for her. Not to give too much away but trust me there is a subtle shift in her character much like in Degrade: the powerful characters begin to change and we are locked in to see where the story goes. I really enjoyed this story, the writing is fresh, and the story hasn't been told a hundred times, it got me to think outside the box. All in all I loved it!

I traffic gorgeous young men for my clients, the lonely old women whose husbands are more than likely off cheating on them. You’re not going to like me; I’m not going to lie. I’m a b*tch, a manipulator, the type of girl your mother warned you about. Did this get your attention? Good, because h*ll is about to get unleashed on you with a side of b*tch and alpha madness. “I’ve died and gone to heaven,” “No, Mika, you’re about to enter hell.” Whereas the first book was a humongous mindf*ck this one was more of a sweet form of torture. Aria and Mika are the perfect match, the ying to each others yang. “Why am I in this room?” “It’s our room. You’ll be sleeping here.” “Oh, no you fucking don’t. I am not sleeping in the same bed as you. Go f*ck yourself and the horse you rode in on, motherf*cker.” She is wild, young, free and haunted. He is young , sensual and protective. “My very own evil Cinderella.” Well, you were warned she was quite fierce and crazy. But underneath it all she is still a girl wanting to be loved. Although her version might not what you’d call conventional. “I wasn’t fucked up. I just had a twisted perception on life.” Yes, she does questionable things but I still love Aria. She was just trying to handle her broken soul in a way she saw fit at the time. By the end you’ll definitely see a change in her persona. Good or bad? That might be debatable for some! ;) #MagicMikeXXL Oh and she and Mika trying to get the whole dating scene, priceless! That was so funny yet adorable. Mika has got some steel b*lls of steel to withstand Aria through it all. ... And they lived sinfully ever after? ... Another recommendation and must read! Fast paced, witty and sexy - Need anything else? ... Didn’t think so! ;-)

I mean she was so unique , like no other chick I have read before. The stories crossed over and some we already got from Degrade yet now we get in Aria's POV so although similar definitely not the same. I enjoyed seeing Bex and Zeke again , loved Aria's POV of her and Zeke's friendship !! I would say the picture was complete now but Can you say MIND BLOWN !!

I enjoyed seeing Bex and Zeke again , loved Aria's POV of her and Zeke's friendship !! I would say the picture was complete now but yet I still cannot believe some of the stuff going on with these business ventures and characters. Aria takes this job out of nowhere and surprise surprise she is the best they have ever seen. Yet this is no normal job and although it is wrong on most accounts you can't help but feel the heat and the power of what Aria does. Mika comes along out of nowhere all stalkerish and starts changing things up. He may have been watching Aria but he obviously hasn't followed the fact that she doesn't give in to anyone. It is funny to watch him try but then I was also a bit broken up for him and then again for her when a certain someone planted herself in their path. These were the times that my mind was screwed. Like no wait don't do that , ughh she did that and now we will suffer LOL. There were some twists and turns , a few added characters that I enjoyed and one or two that I hated !! All in all I thoroughly enjoyed the crazy ride Aria has taken us on and I honestly love her , despite her flaws and the things she has done I just love her. I was happy to find out about her family life and see that getting worked out and I was thrilled that she became a bit of a human by the end , almost like the Grinch , her heart actually grew and thawed out !!

Once again T.L. does not disappoint with her strong women characters and interesting storylines - from major suspense to romance - her books have it all. This book will have you hooked until the last page is turned. Aria, the heroine, is a gorgeous, strong and a fiercely independent woman with a twisted perception of life and love. Aria feels incapable of love and is not after a happily ever after. She is intelligent and she knows exactly what she wants and needs from her life. Aria is a trafficker, yes, you read that right, she traffics men, and she does what is necessary to get the job done. Her incentive is money and power. There are some dark and twisted moments in the book and some is hard to read, but that's what makes this book special. In comes Mika and Aria is confused by what she feels and is conflicted. Her life is perfect and doesn't need the complications of a man. There are some scorching hot scenes. I found Aria interesting as she moved forward with Mika, she just had no idea how to date or spend time with a man, especially one she actually liked. This is no romance book, so don't expect it to be, but it is a book about flawed relationships. I really enjoyed this book, and recommend it to everyone who likes a dark read with a strong heroine. This was a five-star read for me.
