Captor and captive. Lovers. Soul mates.
We're all that and more.
We thought we were past the worst of it. We thought we finally had a chance.
We thought wrong.
We're Nora and Julian, and this is our story.
Hold Me is the conclusion of the Twist Me trilogy, told from Nora and Julian's point of view.

It is obvious I love audible & I am addicted to it too!!
Don't get me wrong, I love all three twist me series but I truly find book 1 & 2 are the best. Book 3 isn't up to book 1 & 2's level as I get it, book 3 is the closing story to nora & julian. Rather, its more of a conclusion with minimum action. How I wish there will be book 4.
"Whoo wee!!! Omg!!"
I loved it!!! You definitely have to read/ listen to all of this series!! This was a GREAT finish! Dark? - yes! Hot? - yes! Romance? Yes! - Love? Definitely! This was so good and the narrators were on point ! If you like dark romances that have you saying.... This is twisted! - then you will love this! I hate spoilers so I will just say .... try it! Great job Anna !
I have read the series with eager pleasure, and getting the third installment is like the icing on the cake. Nora and Julian love is something like any other love story, it just has a twist and I simply loved it. It was such an amazing read and kept me flipping the pages for more! This third book has a bittersweet ending and I just want to applaud Anna and Zima for writing such a amazing series, and I cannot wait for more!!!!
"NEVER GET OVER THIS AUTHOR BOOKS"
The whold book was my best part i cried so much .
Nothing really, this book was really well done by Anna and i love that she brings the reader out of their seats.
My favorite part, was that in the end they did stay together, even though Julian was not going to let Nora out of his life. I love everything in the book.
Hold Me would stay the same . I wouldn't change anything at all.
I recommend this book to anyone that have a open mind , like i did, and people will not be disappointed.
"Loved every minute of it"
everything I had hoped for even though the end could've been a little longer but still amazing ending
"Hold Me Good (I Love This Series)"
This is the third and final book in this series and I will miss Julian and Nora. I loved this series and this book was really good. The book starts where book two left off with Nora and Julian recovering in hospital. Nora has come to accept her life on the estate with Julian and continues to flourish as she pursues her art and university degree. She craves Julian and his unpredictable kind of love as much as the air she breathes. This book explores Nora's awakening as a women not just sexually but intellectually, socially creatively. I loved that we are brought closer to her parents and the friends she left behind before her abduction. Julian also evolves on so many levels in this book, although he still has many dark places within he finally allows himself to accept being worthy of being loved and allowing himself to be vulnerable enough to love another. I also loved how Nora was able to find courage willing to do anything to save those that she loves and she didn't let her friends or her parents pressure her into leaving Julian although she knows that he would have never let her leave him. This book was not only filled with action it was also emotional. Yes Julian is a killer and an arms dealer and he loves Nora he is dark and moody and I loved everything about him. This book was well written like the other books in this series and although I am sad that this series has ended this book was the prefect ending to a really good series. If you like reading dark erotic romance with kidnapping and BDSM than I recommend that you read this series.
"Not your typical happily ever after"
I loved the strong will of both Julian and Nora. Both main characters had to evolve.
"Deeply Dark Romance"
Romance can come from the most unlikely of places. That's proven in this deeply dark romance. The story is addictive with a tight plot and even pacing. The entire series is a must read. An absolute NDULGENT READ!
I review for the Guilty Indulgence Review Site.
"5 "Living Captivatingly In Love Ever After" Stars!"
5 "Living Captivatingly In Love Ever After" Stars for the story and narration!
*Please note this is the 3rd and last book in the Twist Me Series, and the below review may contain spoilers for the prior books. If you haven't yet started this fantastic series, please see my review for Twist Me, book 1 in the series.
What a fitting conclusion to this addicting dark romance trilogy that tells the tale of a ruthless and powerful arms dealer and his captive! Listening to the progression from solely obsession to undying love between this unlikely couple has been mesmerizing and passion-filled. Moreover, the constant danger and suspense angle has added a whole other level of intrigue, and in some cases justification, for the hero's uber alpha hero, unparalleled possessiveness. But as if the story is not enough to compel you to listen to this amazing dark romance trilogy, the narration is also top-rate making this a must listen for the dark romance audiobook enthusiast!
Book 3, Hold Me, picks up where book 2 (Keep Me) leaves off. Julian is recovering from his physical scars from being held captive and Nora from her emotional scars. It is amid this backdrop the couple learns of a life altering circumstance which is sure to completely change their future together. Although they each approach this revelation with different perspectives, hopes and fears, Hold Me gives us a glimpse of what a HEA for master/captive relationship might look like.
Amid this personal game changer, Nora and Julian again finds themselves dealing with bad guys. We also learn of an interesting situation that will form the basis for the spin-off series: Capture Me. Namely we get some insight into Lucas, one of Julian's higher up private security handlers, and the traitor who has caught his eye: Yulia Tzakova. For those of you who read or listened to the prior books, Yulia is the Russian Interpreter who sets up Julian which leads to him being captured in Book 2, Keep Me.
Roberto Scarlato and Shirl Rae return as dual narrators giving us a natural division between the chapters between Julian's perspective and Nora's. I loved how these narrators maintained the consistency of the various characters voices from the prior book making it easy to fall back in to listening to this next adventure in Hold Me. Moreover, each does a great job of creating personality appropriate voices for each of the characters helping the listener envision the characters that Ms. Zaires has penned.
All in all, Hold Me does a great job of giving us a glimpse into what a HEA between Julian and Nora would entail, while at the same time whetting our appetite and desire for the Capture Me spin-off series. I can't wait to continue experiencing the right and wrong boundary pushing erotic and intrigue filled world that Ms. Zaires has created in Capture Me!

Rosa. She seemed to have a handle on everything. She was well aware of where she was and who she was.
When Rosa got raped, and when they got pinned down in the hanger, and Nora did what a woman should do. She picked up a gun and helped her man. When Rosa got her revenge.
"Narration... no. And no."
Her voice grated on me a bit. She sounded like she was whining every other sentence. Or she was in pain. Something. Also, I did not enjoy that the female narrator and male narrator read at different speeds.
"edge of the seat read"
this is one of the most enthralling stories I've listened to & found it impossible to put down
Did not want.to end this book just excellent plz another one plz would love to see Julian as a dad. great read will read again very soon
