Desire (Twisted Hearts Duet, book 1) by Max Henry


Four simple rules when you’re a man on parole: 
1. Don’t lust after your best friend’s daughter. 
2. Don’t get into a physical fight over her. 
3. Definitely don’t f*ck her. 
4. And whatever you do, don’t fall in love. 
I have a bad habit of breaking rules.

My Review
Desire, book one of Max Henry’s “super angsty & taboo” Twisted Hearts contemporary romance duet will leave you ready for more.  Loaded with angst, “language” & some of the most lust filled romance-- you will not be able to put this book down.  This story really does have it all “Love, relationships, heartache, and suffering…” Realities of adulthood are realized “School’s out motherf*ckers- welcome to adulthood. Where mistakes are made, and dreams are shattered. Living the dream.”  Friendships are tried & torn apart “What the f*ck happened to Thelma and Louise? Seems Thelma found Brad Pitt is what.” only to be found again in those you’d least suspect.  Family bonds are tested & secrets, lies & betrayals are revealed in a surprising twist.  Mutual attraction – doesn’t even touch what these characters feel for one another “She was built to lie with me, and I was built to love her.”  Drawn together by the way “…you were the only one I saw. The only one who saw me, too.”  So incredibly sexy – “You taste like the best kind of sin, dove.”  Tormented by forbidden desires “…the warm kiss of a girl who could never be mine haunts me every hour of every day.” & the pain of rejection “The risk is too great, the chances too high. A fire that burns as bright as ours will barely last the night.”  Ultimate lessons of acceptance, sacrifice & never settling “Don’t settle. Always look for more.” 
I have to say, at the start I was hooked.  Then I began to question myself – that I was enjoying the story too much “It might not be wrong, but it isn’t exactly right either.”  By the end HOLY CRAP I couldn’t get enough of Belle & the way she lives in the moment & owns it.  Zeus with his fierce protective nature, oh my.  I simply can’t wait to see what book two brings because “I. Want. More.”
