Spotlight & Review: Warped by Shyla Colt

by Shyla Colt
Genre: Multi-Cultural, Interracial Romance

Imprisoned in the sex industry her entire life, Taffy’s offered a fresh start among the Dueling Devils. She takes the chance and christens herself, Symone. Struggling find her way in a new life full of independence, she gains the attention of a massively built biker with a tragic past. 

Scarred by the fire that took his parents, Monster understands the pain and humiliation that comes from being different. The minute he lays eyes on Symone, he recognizes a kindred spirit. Brought back from his monotonous half-life, he’d been living. Intent on claiming the skittish beauty for his own, he commits to showing her what it means to be loved by a man.

My Review:
This was a really fast, emotional, and smoking hot read! It is part of a series but can stand-alone really well. I do plan on going and reading the rest of the series now that I've read this one.
 Both Monster and Symone(Taffy) have scars on the outside and in but learn how to love and help heal each other.
I adored Monster. He's very quiet and broody and knows that he scares women because of his appearance so he keeps to himself. But within Symone he finds a kindred spirit. I love how dominate and alpha he is with her but still extremely sweet and gentle. He won't let her pull away from him and what they are both feeling.
My favorite line from him is, "We can go as slow as you need. But we will go." Also when he compares himself to Gollum and she's his precious. He's just very cute and endearing with how much he cares about her and wants to help her through her struggle.
I really liked Symone too. She is very feisty and can be stubborn. Even when she is really scared she still tries to fight. She had a horrific past and is trying to deal with the scars physically and emotionally that it left.
It was ultimately a very beautiful and ugly read at the same time. Life isn't always beautiful but you can still find love. Even Frankenstein had a wife.

Shyla Colt grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio, but has lived a variety of different places thanks to her wanderlust, interesting careers, and marriage to a United States Marine. She's always loved books and wrote her very first novel at the age of fifteen. She keeps a copy of her first submission letter on her desk for inspiration. 

After a lifetime of traveling, she settled down and knew her time had come to write. Diving into her new career like she does everything else, with enthusiasm, research and a lot of prayers, she had her first book published in June of 2011. As a full-time writer, stay at home mother, and wife, there's never a dull moment in her household. 

She weaves her tales in spare moments and the evenings with a cup of coffee or tea at her side and the characters in her head for company. A self-professed rebel with a pen. Her goal is to diversify romance as she continues to genre hop, and offer up strong female characters.
