After working her way up, Sinthia Michaels has finally hit it big in the glamorousfashion industry. Young and beautiful, she has it all—a celeb lifestyle, a gorgeous Manhattan townhouse, and a highly anticipated couture fashion line.

Core McKay, former kingpin of New York City’s organized crime, is now a wealthy and legitimate businessman. However, when Core sets his sights on a corrupt politician, his need for revenge leads him to Sin’s up-and-coming fashion empire.

Weaving together his twisted lies and dirty secrets, Core entangles Sin in his web of deceit. When the backstabbing fashion world, the vicious political arena, and the ruthless criminal underworld converge, Sin becomes trapped in the middle and struggles to fight her way out.

***WARNING: Twisted Lies is intended for mature audiences. Recommended Reading Age 18+***

Twisted Lies was a very quick, short read. I haven’t had the pleasure of reading anything by Sedona Venez before but I can say this won’t be the last book I read of hers. Twisted Lies is the first installment to a serial series. Short yes, but it will suck you in from the very steamy prologue.

Sinthia Michaels, aka Sin, had lost her father in previous years and was raised by her stepmother. Which you would think that’s not too bad but in fact it was. Her stepmother didn’t care what Sin wanted out of life and found that her plans to go to a prestigious fashion school was a waste of time and it would take her nowhere. She wanted Sin to stay and work at her teahouse instead of having her own career or life for that matter. Sin finally told her stepmother that she quit and was taking the opportunity of a lifetime and went off to school.   

The book then picks up a year later and Sin had already had her heart broken. Not fully over the heartbreak, Sin doesn’t have the time for any relationship with trying to get her clothing line up and running. Her best friend Jade talks her into having a one night stand to take the edge off and have some fun. What Sin doesn’t know is the guy that is paying close attention to her is a creep.

Sin finally has an investor for her clothing line and everything seems to finally fall into place; until she actually meets the investor that is.
Core McKay was a former thug and ran the streets. He has since become a well-known, top notch businessman. Come to find out he is that secret investor that Sin needs in order to get her fashion line out to customers. Core is this cold, mean looking man that kind of scares Sin but he also has this mysterious hotness to him. What Core has in store for Sin is devious but can Sin get out of his clutches?

This book sucked me in from the start. I just had to keep reading and I finished it in one sitting. I was so angry when it ended because I NEED to know what’s going to happen. Don’t let that it is a serial deter you because it was great and worth your time. Some short novellas are annoying and feel like a waste of time but for me this one left me satisfied until the end. It has a lot going on and I was caught off guard a lot. I find it a good thing when you can’t predict what is going to happen next.

Jesus, I’m so fucked.

Our mouths were a breath away. The desire and tension were almost more than I could take. Abruptly, he removed his thumb from my mouth, cupping the back of my neck, pulling hard on my hair, before his lips settled across my mouth. My breath caught as my mind was undecided as to whether I should pull back or allow him to delve further.

Who am I kidding?

There was no allowing. I was Core’s possession, and the cocky bastard knew it.

Sensually, I moaned as his tongue curled around mine, demanding that it come out and play. He awakened a need that lay dormant in the pit of my stomach, a need that only he could satisfy.

His hand skated down and squeezed my hip while his eyes were fixed on me. “I want you. Now!” he growled.

My pulse raced, and my body trembled with want. He was crumbling my resolve. Diabolically, he stripped me emotionally bare, leaving me vulnerable and raw to the bone. He was revealing a piece of me that would be better left hidden. The message was clear. He knew what I needed, and he would give it to me if I took the leap of faith.
