About the Book- Twisted Love

He has a heart of ice…but for her, he’d burn the world. 

Alex Volkov is a devil blessed with the face of an angel and cursed with a past he can’t escape. 

Driven by a tragedy that has haunted him for most of his life, his ruthless pursuits for success and vengeance leave little room for matters of the heart. 

But when he’s forced to look after his best friend’s sister, he starts to feel something in his chest:

A crack.
A melt.
A fire that could end his world as he knew it.


Ava Chen is a free spirit trapped by nightmares of a childhood she can’t remember.

But despite her broken past, she’s never stopped seeing the beauty in the world…including the heart beneath the icy exterior of a man she shouldn’t want. 

Her brother’s best friend. 
Her neighbor.
Her savior and her downfall.

Theirs is a love that was never supposed to happen—but when it does, it unleashes secrets that could destroy them both…and everything they hold dear.

Twisted Love is a brother’s best friend/opposites attract romance with a hint of suspense. It’s book one in the Twisted series but can be read as a standalone.

Goodreads Page

“You want the world to think you have no heart when in reality, you have a multilayered one: a heart of gold encased in a heart of ice. And the one thing all hearts of gold have in common? They crave love.”

Our Review of Twisted Love by Ana Huang

Ok, so he doesn’t like normal stuff. Got it 😛 I think the only trouble with the book was this implication thrown at your face at regular intervals. But other than that I think everything else pretty much worked in the favour of the book. Partly because I read a similar book (read God of Malice) that showed me all the ways in which the book could have gone wrong and it didn’t. That is one of the reasons, why I felt that the book was fun in its way. At least the MC was not a total freak and was still a salvageable character.

This genre is a very tricky one for me. I have realised that I only like it in a very specified quotient. Too much intimacy or aggression and I am out. So I guess that is the reason why I always find myself in a love-hate relationship with the genre. I had quite a few issues with the MC but still, I had a pretty decent time. So that probably means that it is all in good fun.

So I guess I am all over the place with the review. Let me come directly to the point. I had the book on audio and while reading the book, I was in parallel reading books of a similar genre. So I may have got all the stories jumbled up in my head but considering that this book repulsed me the least, I would say that the book was a good one. It does deal with messed-up characters (mostly MC) but it isn’t overboard or at least like other books.


In conclusion, for me, it was a pretty decent enough book. Not eclectic worthy but not a dull one either. Thankfully the book focused more on so many other factors, like the secondary characters, the underlying subplots and the whole past and its revelations, that the book kept itself moving at a good pace.
