**Review** Ripped & Twisted by Jennifer Lassalle Edwards


Faith Dumont is a witty, confident, fiery fitness competitor, or so she appears to everyone else. Yet no one knows the horrors that she's endured and escaped to create this seemingly perfect life. No one knows the battle of self-loathing and deviant urges Faith battles daily.
She keeps her demons under control by her regimented, disciplined lifestyle. Faith has also implemented “rules” into her life, specifically a “no dating” rule. This rule was made to protect her heart. Life in the gym keeps her sane, to an extent, however, just because there is no dating does not mean there is not a bit of kink.
Slade is smoking hot physique competitor who works with Faith in the gym. Not only is Slade a co-worker, he is Faith's only friend, and a kin of the kink. He has always willingly followed Faith’s conditions... that is until tattooed trainer Ty enters their lives throwing all that Faith has created into a tailspin. When Slade sees Faith falling for Ty's seduction, he decides to refuse Faith's rules and introduce her to his.
With her normalcy crumbling around her, Faith is slammed by the carnal and emotional enticement of both men. Can they make their triad of passion work or will Faith’s past come back to decimate any spark of hope for love that she ever had?
Warning: This book is fictional and depicts acts of violence, graphic sex, including BDSM, M/F/M menage circumstances, and oodles of kink. This book is recommended for mature audiences (21 and over) who are not offended by scenarios such as these.

4 Stars

This is a great read.  I really enjoyed it.  And I love Faith, Slade, and Ty.

Faith hasn't had a great life.  After marrying her high school sweetheart, he changed.  He became a controlling, abusive, cheater.  Faith knew he would end up killing her at some point.  It took awhile, but she got out and ran. 

"I guess you should know that I did get out.  There was no knight in shining armor to her, no prince charming, just little old me.  This b**** was her own hero, sort of..."

After 6 years of being on the run, she has remained in the same place for the past few years.  For the most part, she stays to herself.  She has a job that she really likes.  But she does have needs and that's where the club and Slade come into play.  He knows just what she needs and has been "taking care" of her for the past 2 years.  They aren't in a relationship.  It's more of a friends with benefits arraignment. No feelings involved, at least until Ty enters the picture also.  Then everything changes. 

I really love Faith.  Even though she is hard on herself, she is a strong woman, she just needs to realize she is.  She has a sarcastic mouth which is awesome.
