Review: Twisted Desire by Laura Dunaway

She woke in the dark. The sharp surge and sway of her world the only hints she has of her surroundings.

Penelope Santoro is alone, trapped in an empty room of what could only be a boat in the middle of a rough ocean. With no recollection of how she got there, and no escape in sight, she's quickly losing hope that she will ever find her way home.

Tag Reynolds is detached. His life depends upon it. But when the beautiful daughter of one of his biggest rivals winds up in his care, his entire world shifts. Drawn to her innocence, he desperately fights the feelings he can't have...feelings that could destroy everything he's worked for.

Penny is nothing more than a pawn in a deadly game -- a game that Tag cannot afford to lose. Can he save her without compromising his position, or will they become victims of their twisted desire?

Twisted Desire by Laura Dunaway is one book that will keep that will keep you guessing till the very end. Penelope "Penny" Santoro is kidnapped and all that she is told is that she will learn the reason why she is trapped on a boat when the time is right. Afraid and unsure what is going to happen, the only contact she is with Tag Reynolds who hadn't planned on being a "babysitter". What transpires is a story that lives up to its title. 

The relationship between Penny & Tag is nowhere near normal. While you are unsure of Tag, there is something else to him that you can't quite put your finger on. Penny in all honesty doesn't know what to think of Tag in the beginning, but as she spends more and more time with him, this balance of trust builds. You will definitely be thrown for a loop and you won't really know what will happen to Penny and Tag as you read the story. Is it Stockholm Syndrome or is it more? Secrets are revealed, and there will be times that you are left saying OMG. 

Laura Dunaway has written a story that is fresh take on a love story albeit under the strangest of circumstances. Despite that, you do connect with the characters and want to see how it will end for for Penny & Tag. Let me just say, the last third of this book has some major curve balls.  Laura Dunaway keeps you on your toes with Twisted Desire. If you're looking for something different, Twisted Desire is the book to read.
