There are two kinds of people in the world. The ones who look first, and the ones who leap. I’ve always been more of a looker. Cautious. A planner. That changed after I met Drew Evans. He was so persistent. So sure of himself – and of me.

But not all love stories end happily ever after. Did you think Drew and I were going to ride off into the sunset? Join the club. Now I have to make a choice, the most important of my life. Drew already made his –in fact, he tried to decide for the both of us. But you know that’s just not my style. So I came back to Greenville. Alone. Well, sort of alone….

What I’ve come to realize is that old habits die hard and sometimes you have to go back to where you began, before you can move ahead.

TWISTED picks up two years after Tangled’s end, and is told from Kate’s POV.


So here we are back for more. This time, through Kate’s point of view. This isn’t a rehashing of what had happened in Tangled, but a continuation of their story. I’m not going to lie, if it wasn’t for the eventual resolution of their story, I would be leaving a scathing review. But since I was able to take more good than bad, I decided to give it a middle grade.

Once again, we’re treated to the hilarity of Drew’s twisted view of the world and life in general. The sex is hotter than ever and even more adventurous. They can’t get enough of each other and Drew seems to be showing signs that he’s really changing his ways. So why then do we find Kate broken hearted at the beginning of the story? Well, you’d have to read it, of course.

THINGS I DIDN’T LIKE

Gah. I saw it from a mile away. I saw the minute that these two used miscommunication as a conflict device to perpetrate angst. Kate, what was so hard about saying, hold up, hold up. What the fuck are you talking about? No. You need to listen to me first before you go and hire a stripper to purposely hurt my feelings. Did you not learn your lesson from the first book?

 And Drew. Your mistrust is so unfounded. Kate was not the one who had different girls every night before you guys met. She was the one who was in a relationship for years. She wasn’t the type to cheat, you dumbass! How in the world did one plus one equal to Kate cheating? Without even due consideration to the type of person Kate is, you went and fucked it all up again. Sighhhhhhhhh. I swear if it wasn’t for your hotness, you’d have been minced meat by now.

IN RETROSPECT

These two had their own shares of immaturity and foolishness, but such is the reality of a relationship that had a stormy beginning and was patched up by office furniture to begin with (don’t ask). I can’t really blame them for that because we’re all mad when it comes to love. I did say they made up for it in the end. And that’s the best thing about Emma Chase’s stories. She paints flawed characters in a light that we can all – unfortunately – relate and see.
