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.

Ah, Drew and Kate, they became one of my favorite fictional couples after I read Tangled. I adore them! So when I read the blurb for Twisted, I got major anxiety because I was afraid of what they were going to go through, because I didn’t want to witness their possible demise. My heart couldn’t take it. I finally put my big girl panties on though, and dove in. I admit, it wasn’t as good as Tangled, but I did love it.

Twisted is told from Kate’s POV. Now, I absolutely loved that Tangled was told from Drew’s perspective, because c’mon, it’s Drew. I also loved Kate, so I was excited to be in her head this time around. Besides, our buddy Drew wouldn’t leave us completely hanging; we do get more from him in this too. *wink*

I loved getting to know Kate better, I definitely connected with her even more in Twisted. It was so much fun seeing this side of Kate and where she came from. She’s a cool chick, for sure. We also get to experience Dee Dee and Billy through her eyes, and experience how deep their friendships are. Loved that!

This was a rollercoaster of emotions, taking us on the highest of highs and low as hell. But damn, did it ever start out hot! While there was plenty of humor in Twisted, it had a more serious feel to it than Tangled did. I’m not much of a fan of the whole miscommunication thing when it comes to drama in relationships, and that’s what this all came down to. However, I’m giving it a pass because I did enjoy it so much.

I’m glad I didn’t resist reading Twisted any longer, because despite my fears, it ended on the best frigging note. Now I’m looking forward to Tamed, which is Dee and Matthew’s story.

  1. I really need to read Tangled and this one. This sounds super steamy, while being emotionally manipulative at the same time… (and I mean that in a positive way). I like it when stories spiral my emotions out of control! 😀 Great review!

  2. Oh yes I remember your great review about Tangled and you really made me curious about it so I’m glad this one is also really good. Isn’t it wonderful when sequels are up to the others? Thanks for the review Christy!

  3. So glad you took the plunge and read this even though you were nervous about starting it. Glad it was a good read even if it wasn’t quite as good as the first. I still need to add this series to my TBR pile!

  4. Glad you enjoyed it too! A lot of drama comes out of miscommunication so I think it gives relationship-issues authenticity. It is kind of annoying to witness (both in books and IRL, lol), but as long as you love the characters and it’s still a fun read, why not, right? Lol.
    Yeey for future stories too!

      True, but it was a little ridiculous it this one. I’m just glad the great characters and awesome ending made up for it.

  5. I’m so scared to read this one because I’ve read some pissed off reviews that Tangled got ruined for them because they read this book! But I do trust your judgement Christy so I will read this. I mean, relationships hit rough patches and it’s only realistic that Drew and Kate would too, right? And I’m very interested with Kate and Billy’s relationship cause I never really thought of him as a bad guy in Tangled. Hmmm…maybe I’ll get this on audio. Great review 🙂

  6. Ack. Worrisome, isn’t it? When you have an intuition that your favourite couple may be on the road to bumpy town? I haven’t read these yet, but then again, that shouldn’t come as a surprise to you. It’s like I’m reading, and reading just not the right ones? Lol.
