Back in the 90’s, the corrupt post-Soviet Ukraine with its faltering economy, is thrown into a devastating depression. Times are hard. Opportunities are scarce.

Three eager young sisters – Natalia, Lena and Julia - dream of a better life and weigh their options: do they stay and struggle like their parents, or join scores of their compatriots in the sex trade in glittering western European cities, who earn in a night what they’d take several months to earn at home? Naive and tempted by the allure of 'quick' money, the girls set off on an adventure that changes their lives forever...

Can they stay out of trouble enough to fulfill their ambitions?
Can they hold on to their idealism in a world where depravity and danger are constant companions?
How far are they willing to go to make a buck?

Inspired by real-life events, Twisted is a fascinating New Adult SUSPENSE THRILLER about vulnerability, courage and the art of making a living in the sex trade...


My Thoughts
Edgy and Gritty
Twisted is a raw gritty and emotional journey of a young woman's life in the sex trade industry. Travelling to Luxembourg  with her sisters to find work she ends up in the clutches of an industry that leaves her feeling numb to the acts she performs. 
The Characters are well rounded and the world was so vivid it was like I was there with them traversing the streets along side them. I was intrigued and yet found parts to be so disturbing but I could not put it down. The writing was in parts disconnected but it did not take away the enjoyment of the book. I am looking forward to the next installment.
