I loved him from the age of sixteen.
Hated him from the age of eighteen.

Distorted Love by T.L. Smith is the first book in her Dark Intentions duet and WOW WOW WOW….this book knocked me completely out of my socks while holding me down to read faster. This book is dark, twisted, full of evil things, and yet the light and distorted love between Saskia and Ryken was both alarming and beautiful all at the same time. Following the story of Ryken and Saskia, left me on a whirlwind. With ages of history between them and a darkness that has seeped into their worlds, it will take everything that Saskia has to keep her man and Ryken coming toward the light to have her goodness. The intensity between these two left me breathless, Smith wasting no time getting to the meat of the story, showing how magnetic they are two each other. The internal struggles of Ryken are painfully evident to anyone who is looking, but those struggles are what keep him working toward getting and keeping Saskia in his life. The twists and turns in this story, kept me on the edge of my seat right until Smith threw me right over the cliff hanger at the end of this story. I was literally breathless right up until the end of this book. I CANNOT wait too see how she makes this series better, which I can only imagine she will. Smith is a new to me author, and this debut book blew me away. Her characters were amazing, the story line was both dark and twisted, and the material choice left me several times wondering how dark she would take these two. This is a must read book for anyone who likes a little darkness with their romance, or is looking for something completely out of the ordinary. I can't wait to see what happens in the second half of this duet.
Wow and just wow!!! This book had my mind racing and unable to turn off which meant not being able to put this book down. These characters have all the emotions built in to them and their ride is nothing short of an amazing emotional roller coaster!
Oh man when I got to the end of this book I wanted to throw it. This was an extreme emotional read. Dark and ugly, twisted. The love that they shared was explosive and forbidden. The author just. Well I don’t know what this author did but I couldn’t put this book down. What started as a simple attraction turned so ugly, I mean the things they did to each other and still returned was beyond me. She wasn’t a part of his world but she was in his heart. OK so this isn’t my first read by this author so I should have been prepared but like Barbie I wasn’t ready. This touched me in so many ways that I have to have more. I can’t let their story go and since this isn’t a standalone I have to have the next book. It’s that kind of read. And with the way the first book ended the stuff aint done.
Distorted Love (Dark Intentions Duet Book 1) by T.L. Smith is the first book in her Dark Intentions Duet series. This is my first book by this author and I enjoyed it. I can't wait to read more of her books. This is a dark adult romance story that I had a hard time putting down. This author's writing skills is such that she pulls you right into the story from the beginning. Her story is easy flowing and fast reading. Her characters are both connectable and lovable. They took me on an emotional roller coaster ride that I wanted more of. This is a story about a woman and a man who have a love – hate feelings for each other. She fell in love with him when she was sixteen and at eighteen, he broke her heart. When he graduated he left with another woman. She feels that she is second place to him and she wants to be first. She has to keep reminding herself that she is no one's second chance even if he is the one to steal her heart. I enjoyed both of these characters. She is so feisty and strong. He has wanted her from the time he first met her. One minute they hate each other the next they love each other. They have great chemistry together and in my opinion deserve to be together. They are from two different worlds, they know it can't work for them but yet they can't stay away from each other. The secondary characters are for the most part enjoyable. There a couple that I really didn't like but on the other hand they did help make the story flow. It wouldn't be the same without them. I highly recommend this book.
