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.
As many of you, know, I adored Tangled the first book in the Tangled series by Emma Chase. Drew was hilarious and cute and well an idiot. Twisted takes place two years after Tangled. I was nervous about Twisted since it is told from Kate’s POV. Let me tell you, Chase gave me one heck of a ride. Mini review: Heat, anger, elation, tears, and joy. Emma Chase grabbed me from page one and put me through the wringer with Twisted.
My date with Twisted:
First Date: I am nervous because it is told from Kate’s POV, but she quickly captures my attention. Things are not good in Kate and Drew land. Kate is back in Greenville, AL, and I immediately demand answers. As we sit down over coffee, she shares with me the events from the past two years. OMG!! First she has me all hot and bothered describing their relationship, and the incredibly hot sex. I mean it’s HAWT! These two are perfect together, but then she tells me everything that happened last month. *my world crumbles* I am mad, crushed and crying. I am not a pretty crier. I am destroyed.
Second date: Kate is struggling; she has so many decisions to make. For the first time, she realizes she has never really been independent. She misses Drew. Hell I miss Drew. Kate has the most amazing & supportive friends. Dee-Dee made me giggle-snort and laugh aloud. This girl will have your six and I will party with her anytime! Billy is back, and he was amazing with Kate. At this point, I am pretty angry. The whole issue here is miscommunication. Drew is an idiot and well frankly so is Kate. These two are at the top of their game professionally and complete idiots at home. Grrr! Counseling might be in order. *bangs head on Nook*
Third Date: Break out the tissues cause this last half of the book had me bawling. But then I was sighing and eventually I began to smile. I really like how Chase handled the aftermath of stupidity. The last few chapters are from Drew’s POV, and I enjoyed talking to him. Yes, he is an idiot but he is our idiot, and I still love him. After these dates, I need some chocolate. Someone had me a truffle.
Emma Chase nailed Kate’s POV mixing in snark, heat and heart-wrenching angst that nearly killed me. Twisted was well twisted, and while my stomach was in knots, Chase made me feel, and I consumed this in one sitting. One heart pounding, teary eyed sitting. In all honesty this could have been a 4 or 4.5 but the whole misunderstanding made me cray-cray. If you love Drew and Kate as much as I do, read it, roll your eyes and love them. The next book, Tamed, is Dee-Dee’s story and I cannot wait.
