And it certainly did!! But don’t expect a happily ever after from these two characters because this is their story and their story doesn’t have one.

Saskia like many students is counting down the months when school lets out for the final time it’s her second to last year she has to attend, Ryken has called her a barbie bombshell, he’s heard all the usual stories about her, she lives in a trailer on the wrong side of town, doesn’t come from money and she’s only attending this school due to a scholarship. 

Ryken is in his senior year of school he’s counting down the days until he turns eighteen and his fathers night club empire is handed over to him, but that’s not all his father has dipped his hands in. Though he does keep Ryken away from this side of his shady dealings, you see his father also runs a sex slave trade.

Saskia is attending her first party held by Ryken’s best friend, at this party she’s caught the eye of Quinn. 

This was the catalyst that set everything in motion. From this point onwards the book takes you on a crazy journey.

Argghhh this was like Romeo and Juliet on crack, I literally have whiplash!! This book completely drained me, the too and fro, backwards and forwards, the love to hate you hate to love you these two had going on did my head in, but like a train on a collision course for the life of me I couldn't stop reading it!! 
And the aftermath is me sitting here with a reeling mind wandering wtf did I just read!! 
It was like I was stuck in a maze, confused as all hell not sure if I wanted rescuing or needed to keep reading, and keep reading I did, a book that I'm questioning myself over because I didn't like or connect with any characters but I ended up devouring this like I was on speed I needed to know what was going to be the outcome for these characters. So like the name of this book 'Distorted' my review is kind of 'Distorted' too. 
For me it wasn't what I would peg as dark but the angst in this was more than I could've hoped for, and the author delivered it in buckets. it had me sitting on the edge of my seat with anticipation throughout, and now I'm wanting, needing, stalking the release of the next book because how this ended has definitely got me wondering what's going to happen in the next book.

I loved him from the age of sixteen. 
Hated him from the age of eighteen. 
He disappeared at the age of nineteen. 
We started off as enemies, then fast became lovers. 
But our story isn’t a happily ever after. 
It was a story of a king and a peasant. Can you guess which I was? 
I knew we weren’t meant to be. 
You see, he fell in love with her first. He loved me last.
I'm not someone's second choice.
Not even for the boy who stole my heart. 
I'm someone's first. 
Now, I just have to remember that.
