Product Description

EDGE

I’ve decided there’s no virtue in patience.
It’s f*cking torture.
And that goes for DM Christmas songs too.

MATHIAS

Good girl.
Be afraid of me.
It will make my job easier.
Until she's caught between a desk and a Hell's bastard.


ROSE

I am a shell to be f*cked with.
But I am a survivor.
I have my own Sasha Fierce.
Just give me a reason.


CEZAR

You haven’t seen my bad side yet.
It will leave you speechless.


WHISPER

Opportunity may knock only once, but temptation leans on the doorbell.

Survival has become a waiting game, choreographed by a schedule to keep me complacent.
Mathias and Rose are my constants.
My frenemies.
What happens when Cezar turns the tables?

Just remember to breathe.


Contains adult situations which may offend and graphic violence, but it is one hell of a fictional ride. Strap yourself in. For mature aged readers 18 +.

Wow! I have just finished reading Contorted, at 1am, and I'm reeling. What a ride! It is action packed, dark and twisty. I'm hooked.

The story is based around Whisper, a young woman who has a very traumatic past. She was taken and held captive. Her trauma doesn't end with this one event, trouble seems to follow her. Edge is her knight in not so shiny armor. He, along with Whisper's friends, are on a mission to save her. The book is written in multiple points of view. I enjoyed this and didn't find that it detracted, rather it enhanced the reading experience. It made the story fast paced, building and building until kapow! Then there are the twists! They kept coming. Who? What the frick? No way! Say again? Oh no, she didn't? That was my head the early hours of this morning.

It's not all kidnapping and terror. There are moments of romance, sex and even humor. Each chapter has a title, my favourite is "Brings a whole new meaning to pain in the arse". This lightness helps to level out all the dark.

Contorted is the 3rd book in The Hell's Bastard series by Emma James. This is a true series, you must read all the books in order. Some people don't like this, but I find with these types of books suspense is what it is all about. The story is developed so thoroughly by the author each instalment.

I'm eagerly anticipating the next in the Hell's Bastard series.

Searching Google:
con·tort
kənˈtôrt/
verb
past tense: contorted; past participle: contorted
twist or bend out of its normal shape.
"a spasm of pain contorted his face"

"her face was contorted with grief"

The AMAZINGLY TALENTED Emma James has blown me away, once again in this third installment of the Hell's Bastard series, Contorted! Cezar, is DEFINITELY a twisted and warped S.O.B! Having read all of James' books, I LOVE the cross over character appearance of Slade, one of her Ocean Beach guys! This fast paced violently dark read is action packed with immensely strong characters..."I. Am. A. Survivor. Not matter the cost."
Whisper's dark journey continues in this insanely violent and twisted novel. "...this is like one epic never-ending movie filled with betrayal and violence..."
"...she's my sweet and wild..." and Edge is on a mission to save her. With the help of two motorcycle clubs, ex Special Forces members, under covers on the inside, and a loving family at home; this team will not be stopped in safely bring Whisper home. Will it be too late? The physical and emotional trauma Cezar causes Whisper...is it too great to recover from? As this cliffhanger ending reveals a new secret, (book 4) Entwined can't be released soon enough!!

The previous books in the series; Wrenched and Warped (both reads are 5 STARS) should DEFINITELY be read in order. If you're a fan of dark reads, make sure you add the Hell's Bastard series on your To Be Read Lists! You won't be disappointed!

Emma James is an Evil, Fantastic and Talented Genius.
She has done it again.
Oh the adrenaline and anticipation caused throughout the whole book. You just can't put it down.
The story has such complex, strong, sexy alpha males and just as emotion evoking females that you crave to save. Also, don't forget the few sick and twisted men (If you could call them that. More like animals).

I love the inclusion of the MC men, and Slade & Phoenix from The Men of Ocean Beach series. It made it all the more exciting and entertaining..

Now i count the days until Entwined and Venerated. Get back in the cave Emma. Ha ha

5.0 out of 5 stars Emma James has proven beyond a shadow of doubt how truly talented and brilliant her writing is. Feb. 15 2017

2017 Favorite ... 6+ Stars

Writing this review has left me dumbfounded. I'm not quite sure where to start or what to say so that I don't give away spoilers. I have attempted to draft this review several times only to hit delete. I am really struggling to find the right words to do this book and this series justice. So let me begin by talking about the series itself.

The Hell's Bastard Series must be read in order to grasp the full intent of the story unfolding. Each book is delivered with a perfectly synchronized installment that drives this series in a new direction before reaching it's ultimate climax. Making it unpredictable.

The Hell's Bastard Series by Emma James is unlike anything out there. It is a dark romantic thriller that touches upon human trafficking, captivity, violence, abuse, and psychological torment. At the same time it also showcases the things that make life valuable, such as family, friendship, love, integrity, and confidence in oneself to stay true to their inner self. It's all blended in a shroud of mystery, suspense, and danger at every turn. There is more than a warped evil villain contorting each and every move. Each installment in the Hell's Bastard series contains one word and one word only. Pay close attention to the word title of each book. Look up the definition of each word. The title is what propels this series to the next level.

wrench
ren(t)SH/

warp

"wood has a tendency to warp"
synonyms: buckle, twist, bend, distort, deform, misshape, skew, curve, bow, contort

con·tort
kənˈtôrt/Submit
verb

twist or bend out of its normal shape.

Contorted is the third book in the Hell's Bastard series. It picks up where Warped left off. Whisper is being held captive by Cezar Pavel in a secret location. His psychological games are contorting what's coming. While Whisper is desperately hanging onto her sanity and hope that Edge will find her, she's slowly losing the battle. The things she thought she feared most are turning into something else, not quite as frightening. The unimaginable fears are beginning to materialize. It's only the tip of the iceberg. What Cezar Pavel has in store for her makes her years in captivity with William Dupre look like childs play.

Cezar Pavel is biding his time and conditioning the girls for upcoming main event. He's carefully chosen his sentinels to do his bidding. His rule is unquestionable. To question is not without consequences. He's personally conditioned his executioner to kill without questions or remorse. He carefully hides their identities behind Venetian Carnival masks. These masks instill fear and complete obedience . No one knows his real identity or those of his sentinels.

Edge is desperately trying to find Whisper. It's like looking for a needle in a haystack. In the ordinary world Cezar Pavel does not exist. In the underworld there is barely a trace of Cezar Pavel. He has completely hid his existence, he hasn't left any crumbs to follow. The only thing that Edge can do is follow the small trail of crumbs he uncovered at the secret air hanger. It's a waiting game where time is running out before it began. The only thing he can do is enlist the help of Boomer and his crew (Whisper's family), call in the Soulless Bastards MC, the Lions Den MC, and Slade Malone (Ocean Beach Series). Following that one crumb turns into a meticulously synchronized rescue attempt that turns into an unpredictable and explosive cliffhanger.

As an avid reader, I am not one to shy away from dark thrillers that portray extreme violence and inhumane actions. I accept these conditions as part of the overall story. Usually at this point in a series I have an idea of what direction the series is going. I can usually loosely predict what is to come next. Contorted was a different story, what I thought was coming did not unfold. The players were as unpredictable as the plot. I was completely SHOCKED by the outcome. I cannot even imagine what could come next because I was left with so many questions as to the who's, the why's, and how are they all connected. I am sure Emma James has a lot in store for the readers with the last two books before Whisper can finally find her happily ever after... or should I say true beginning... true freedom. The next book is Entwined and will release in 2017. The title itself assures me that I will get some answers but will probably end up with more questions before the final book, Venerated releases.

Emma James has proven beyond a shadow of doubt how truly talented and brilliant her writing is. The vivid descriptions ( which had me Googling like crazy) and synchronized scenes told from many different POV's made this story come to life. It was a consuming reading experience!

5.0 out of 5 stars What a ride!!! Jan. 26 2017
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

Emma James you have done it again! I waited for this book and it was everything I hoped for, it's a cliffhanger but I knew that going in......This adventure has everything a reader could ask for and I felt and understood all the thoughts and actions of the characters as told from their POVs. It is a gritty story with humour used here and there, which was great as I felt I needed a bit of lightness at times. Towards the end of this book I found myself reading faster and faster, totally caught up in the moment, not wanting this to finish, worrying about MY people. This series has characters from another series which I love so let's see where this is going next. I cannot recommend this book highly enough. 5 Big Stars from me and hurry up with the next one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Contorted is Awesome Jan. 27 2017
By Raelene - Published on Amazon.com

I honestly don't know what to say .... I am in awe how this woman's mind works, this 3rd instalment is AWESOME, from the very first book all I wanted was some peace for Whisper and Ms James certainly didn't give me that...... she gave me a lot more dark and mind blowing stress ....
So many characters to enjoy,so many characters to hate.
I have been hooked from the start and I'll be hooked till the end, hopefully the next instalment will give Whisper some peace.
This series is so good and just keeps getting better
