~Synopsis ~

With intertwining memories and world of deceit and betrayal yet to be exposed, Survival, book #1 in the Twisted series, is an intense, compelling page-turner, seen through the eyes of Skye 'the Skillet' Jones. With no friends, no family and a life of loneliness ahead, Skye was looking for a reason to fight. To live. To survive. A once happy family was torn apart, leaving a hazy cloud of confusion, abandonment and fear in its wake.  Her twin brother, Oliver, was all she had. Until the talons of death and the consequences of his dangerous coping mechanism tore his life from him. Skye was left alone, mourning the loss of her brother and the life he would never live, when Cut Throat Curtis swooped in and taught her to fight; to control her emotional anguish with physical strength. But he was dangerous, a force to be reckoned with. A man with turmoil and secrets of his own. He soon left as quickly as he'd appeared, becoming a ghost in the life she no longer knew. She had nothing. She had no one. When all Skye had was her will to survive, fate have her Thomas. He fought for her, he fought with her and he loved her like no other. But fate was waiting, ready to strike with the force of a hurricane when she thought she had everything she'd ever wanted. It was coming, the cruel twist of fate that would bring Skye to her knees and threaten her survival once more...

“That dress makes your tits look incredible.” Thomas curled his arm over my shoulders, taking one of my breasts, sheathed in midnight blue, in his hand. “Yeah, well, those trousers are too tight. I could see your cock twitching for me all night.” “Mmm,” he groaned, moving his arm and slipping both hands into his pockets. “It’s been twitching for you for thirty-six hours.” That was how long it had been. Sometimes we would only last an hour without each other. Sometimes we’d go at it all night, multiples times, until I was so exhausted I only just made it to work the next day. And sometimes we would go for days with nothing but a teasing touch and a goading glare. It was what we enjoyed most. The anticipation. Building the need until it was on such a base level we couldn’t stop for hours. It had been thirty-six since he was last inside me. The only contact we’d had was chaste kissing, an ass grab on his part and a crotch stroke on mine. I ached for him; I would have torn my clothes off and rode him on the back seat if it weren’t for the game. We played it every time we went out.

  Book Scorecard


Angst fest. Riveting story. Jumps around a bit though and feels slightly incomplete. Since this is the first book in a new series, I expect more answers will come in following books.
Fantasy World
UK based scenery feels real. Some events are a little shaky, but overall a world you can sink into.
Sex scenes are hot. Mostly vanilla, but they do play some fun games.
Skye is a great character. ADORE her husband Thomas. Cut Throat wants to be a great character, but doesn't have enough page time to do it.
Ending is abrupt. Resolution is shortchanged. Reader doesn't have time to recover from last punch of angst. Needs more detail on why her family fell apart so completely and so fast.

The title is no lie. This chick has it all thrown at her, and somehow manages to keep going. Every time Skye's life seems to have even a scrap of hope, brace yourself because something truly horrible is going to happen. Readers who like angst will get a full serving. Those who are prone to depression should probably avoid "Survival” because even this hard hearted reviewer shed more than a few tears.

"Survival” by Rebecca Sherwin is worth the $2.99 cover price and is also available via Kindle Limited. I'll definitely be reading the next book in the series which promises Cut Throat's story. This time I'll have the Kleenex and a stiff drink ready before opening the first page!

Every writer was a reader first and Rebecca owes her passion for creating and telling emotional tales to the stories she has read and the people, places and experiences that have, and continue to, inspire her. Rebecca wants her readers to escape to a world where fairy tales and true love exist, wrapping her stories up with angst, passion and curveballs you won’t see coming. Her writing aims to bring problems and tragedies people face every day to light, make them relatable and leave her readers thinking long after they’ve read the last page.
