Product description

Product Description

Tattooist. Artist. Dreamer.
Angel had been a schoolgirl when she came to House Of Payne, a displaced princess with only a fanciful imagination to her name. Now the world clamors for her designs, but that means nothing to Goth tattooist, Twist. Long ago she craved to see admiration in his sexy dark eyes, but after years of enduring his contempt, she’s given up. Leaving the House feels like running, but Twist makes it impossible to stay.

Tattooist. Artist. Ex-Con.
Two words came to Twist’s mind when he first saw Angel—jail bait. When he'd been released from prison for a crime he would commit again in a heartbeat, he'd nevertheless been determined to keep his nose clean. Too bad he couldn't stop from thinking about getting into the pants of the House’s fairy tale princess. But with a past like his, he’s no good for Angel. All he can do is watch over her from afar… whether she likes it or not.

When Angel is injured, Twist appoints himself as her personal caretaker. She soon discovers that beneath his arrogant façade lies the heart of a devoted protector. She’s going to need that protection, as Twist’s past has made an unsettling reappearance...

“I’ve been waiting so long for you to see me.”

♦️BOOK: #3, HOUSE OF PAYNE series. 90k words. Can be read as a standalone.

♦️WRITING: Great - Witty, natural dialogue. Dual, alternating POV.

♦️EDITING: Tolerable, but needs some work - several missing/incorrect words

♦️HERO: Oliver "Twist" Santiago, 30(ish)--Tattoo artist at House of Payne, specializing in dark, gothic art. Ex-con, spent four years behind bars for the beating of the man that tortured his little sister. Blames himself for what his sister had to endure. Big, dark, rough, no-nonsense, pain-in-the-butt, and extremely protective of those he cares about, which includes Angel. He adores her and is extremely sweet and loving, once she finally wakes up and accepts it.
"I’m hoping you’re going to open those beautiful eyes of yours and see what the hell’s in front of you… Me."

♦️HEROINE: Angel Taylor, 23--Tattoo artist at House of Payne, specializing in beautiful, colorful, fantasy/cartoon artwork. Young, petite, bright, whimsical, ethereal. She can be a tad bit naive at times, but she's creative, smart, witty, and resourceful. A big fan of Alice in Wonderland. Thinks she hates Twist Santiago and his stubborn, opinionated ways.
"She’d never imagined what it might be like to kiss him. When it came to Twist Santiago, all her fantasy-time dealt with how best to kill him, and maybe where she should hide the body."

♦️HEAT: Medium, 3.5/5 - 5.5 sex scenes.

♦️REVIEW: After enduring years of Twist's overbearing and controlling ways at work, Angel has had enough and quits at House of Payne. While leaving the parking lot, she is attacked and Twist is there to rescue her. He refuses to let her recover on her own, and strong-arms himself into Angel's life. Angel has some funny and awesome friends, Novak and Joey who give her some great advice and help her see Twist and his actions a little more clearly. She quickly discovers that his controlling caveman ways are not based upon disrespect as she had always assumed but his need to protect and care for her and what he sees as "his".
“As long as I’m breathing, the world is a safe place for you. I swear it.”

He has wanted her from day one and only wants what's best for Angel but hasn't exactly gone about it the right way.
“I love you, too, little girl. I’ve wanted to tell you that for so long. So f***ing long. I’ve been suffering without you.”

Twist is one of the best, sweetest heroes I've read about!
"Hell, if he had a daughter, he’d be proud to spoil the s**t out of her and make sure she knew that she was the undisputed princess of his personal kingdom."

It was really sweet to watch these two "enemies" become an unbreakable team.

♦️ENDING: HEA. Epilogue - 10 months later. NO cliffhanger.
5.0 out of 5 stars I love Twist and Angel 8 April 2016

I love Twist and Angel. Twist takes care of Angel in the only way he knows how, by taking over and not letting her know how he feels. That doesn't go over too well with Angel because she has worked really hard to be independent and take care of herself, herself.
It's hard for Angel because she fells undermined and feels like she isn't. Twist was all about Angel, he just wished, he thought hopelessly, for her to open her eyes and finally she Him. See that everything he does and had done was for her happiness and health. This is my favorite book in the series so far!

Angel is fed up, she joined the House of Payne knowing her talent had gotten her there, but when they take an idea of hers and refuse to let her be a part of it, she wants out. When she injures herself though, it just prolongs the inevitable. What Angel doesn't expect is Twist inserting himself into her life and taking care of her.

Twist has let his sour mood for Angel lead his actions toward her, he wants her and has since the first day he saw her. Believing she was too young, he has bided his time, but time is up now and all he is doing is confusing Angel. Angel believes Twist hates her now twist has to show her a softer side, but when someone from his past seeks out revenge he does everything he can to protect her.

This was my favorite so far in the series. I liked Twist, he is total alpha male and is trying to take care of Angel in the most caveman types of way. Angel is sweet and just like her name describes, when Twist decides to take care of her it is hilarious. Excellent read.

Angel, the princess, and Twist ,the ex-con, both House of Payne's great tattoo artist. Angel can't take the thought of coming to work anymore because of the ass that is Twist. Twist, yes he's a ass, but what Angel doesn't know is how he feels and.....
Wow!! Who would have thought big, bad Twist could feel like that!!! Wow.... Just Wow!!!
Once she lets Twist in and really thinks about how she really feels, it's just wonderful!!

Yes. Yes. Yes!

Twist is the third book in the House of Payne series by Stacy Gail, it can be read as a stand-alone, but the whole series is amazing so you're insane if you don't start from book one!

I think the author is just trying to ensure I never sleep again. I can't stop with these books and Twist is no different. I swear I start with the I'll just read for an hour mentality and then I realize I haven't moved in three hours and the book is nearly finished!

Twist and Angel are so volatile together. So much push and pull... well, more like shoving -- stubborn characters just don't know what is best for them. Love, love, love!

There are very few books/series that stick out after I've finished reading, I hardly ever remember character names -- I suck like that -- but with each one of these books I can not only remember the character's names, but I can still feel their struggles and get excited about their world all over again. Twist is a must read!

Five stars and Five wet panties.
