Review Rewind - Warped - Manipulation Trilogy

Title: Warped - The Manipulation Trilogy Book Two

Authors: Alicia Taylor & Natalie Townson

Genre: Romantic Suspense.


I won’t be caught off guard again. I won’t let them win. They played the first round and won. Now it’s time for me to even the score. Damon and Leona will pay for their twisted games. Leona is first.

His touch repulses me. 

His fake affection disgusts me. 

He sickens me.

I need to get my head in the game. I need to be smart and break their bond to more easily crush them. Damon is clever. He knows what he’s doing. He’s been playing the game long enough.

He’s twisted. 

I’m warped.

It’s time to finally end this. 

Time to finally win.


“What the fuck is your problem?”
Leona ignores me and continues to leave with her friends, but I won’t
let it go that easy. I know her type, they think they can walk all
over people and no one will stand up to her. She’s got another
think coming if she thinks I’ll let it pass.

Leona, I asked you a

question. What the fuck is your problem?”

She turns towards me, her

face surprising me. I expect anger but instead she has a sickly sweet
smile on her face as she stalks towards me.

Problem? There's no

problem Ella. For there to be a problem you would have to mean
something, but you're nothing. You’re insignificant like all the
other little bitches Damon picks up. Do you really believe you're
that special Ella? Do you think the words he mutters to you he hasn’t
muttered to someone else before you? What makes you think you're any
different than all the others before?” She lets out a condescending
laugh, “What about Abigail? Oh, you met her didn’t you?” She
acts surprised before sneering again, “At your romantic little
meal. Ring any bells?” She doesn’t give me a chance to answer.
“You will be gone before you know it.”

She turns to leave again,

thinking she’s put an end to me. I don’t fucking think so. What
she said cut deep but I won’t let her see that. I won’t let her
know how much her words can hurt me. She’ll get a kick if she knows
she’s keyed into one of my biggest fears.

Am I just one in a long

list of many that Damon plays with? Or is what we have real?

I am fucking furious. Who

does this bitch think she is? My inner bitch is coming out to join
the party.

You're so fucking

jealous, aren't you Leona? You would give anything to be with him,
but he doesn't want you. Every time you throw yourself at him, he'll
turn you down, because you’re the one who’s nothing to him. He
feels sorry for you, that’s all. It’s nothing more.”

A livid Leona steps toward

me but Lacy holds her back. If I wasn’t pregnant I would slap her
right across that scheming face of hers, but I have something better
up my sleeve to hit her with.

Don’t you think we

know Damon a little more that you?” Michelle pipes up, looking
smug. “We’ve known him a lot longer. You’re nothing but a new
toy to Damon and he gets bored with his toys very quickly,” she
finishes on a smirk, making me want to claw her fucking eyes out.

I laugh at her. “Is that

so? Well I happen to know different.” I start to walk past them to
exit the toilets but Sharn steps in my way and speaks for the first

We’ve not finished

with you yet. You need to back away from Damon before he breaks your
heart. I can see he already owns it. You wouldn’t take up for him
like this if you didn’t love him. We’ve been around longer, will
continue to be around long after you’ve been kicked to the curb.”
She pushes her face close to mine, invading my personal space, no
doubt to intimidate me. “Damon is Leona’s. He will always be

I raise a brow at her

arrogant comment. “Funny that,” I look at Leona, “he told me
you’re nothing more than a tag along. An acquaintance that never
leaves. He only deals with you because of your parents being good
friends with his.” I smirk when I see shock hit her eyes. “Yeah,
that’s right. You’re nothing more than a family friend.” I look
back at Sharn, who is still invading my personal space. “Now if
you’ll excuse me, I have better places to be.”

My Review

Damon and Ella, 2 people keeping secrets.....

The second book in the trilogy and Ella is totally lost to Damon, even if she thinks somewhere her plan is working.

Damon wow his lovely, he has a secret and says his not good enough for Ella.

Ella is pregnant and so messed up, but they make a lovely couple. They have many obstacles ahead of them including the horrid Leona who appears to be holding something against Damon.

I need to mention Tom his so sweet and a great friend to Ella.

Sizzle factor, yes these two love each other's body and show it very often.

The story developed really well in this installment and we got to feel a lot more for Damon. The had me nervous!

A great read, I can't wait for the final part.

4.5 stars

I received an arc for an honest review

Alicia Taylor was born and raised in the

East Midlands town of Derby, England, where she lives with her family and mass
of animals - she's a huge family and animal lover.

Writing powerful love stories and

creating Alpha males with a dash of darkness has become a passion of mine, and
I have many stories and characters swirling in my head that I can't wait to
share with you all. Is it weird to have so many voices in my head? I'm not
crazy, I promise... maybe a little bit.
