How I got a copy: I can an advanced E-Copy thanks to my awesome blogger status – so I have been sitting on this gold for 2 weeks! Now I finally get to share!!!
The Short of it….
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
*Thank you GoodReads for that great summary!
What I thought:
Up until now I have been doing reviews a little differently – putting a few different paragraphs together and then trying to make sense of it all at the end, but I think I just want to write and I hope you all want to read. So i’ll try to make this meaningful to those readers who “get” this book and help anyone on the ledge understand WHY they MUST read it. So now that I have my mission, here I GO!
I Love Their Story
Emma had me all tied up with Drew and Date in “Tangled” – the #1 Read for me in 2013 by FAR!! So to say I was excited about this new release is an understatement – who wouldn’t want more Drew and Kate. It was honestly addicting getting into that pure male brain of his. I have never laughed as hard at any story, while wanting to at the same time slap the sense into someone – it was rather a strange feeling. But in the end, Drew didn’t let me downa nd he did want he needed to get his girl, being Kate. Seeing there was a second part of their story, I could NOT wait to see what the next adventure brought. I was also interested to see things (for the most part) from Kate’s POV this time. We know how Drew’s sleezy brain works – why not see a story in a more …understandable format for all us gals huh? Emma did it – “Twisted” was amazing.
I have to start off saying that for the first 50% of the book I was almost entirely absolutely horrified. If you have yet to read, I don’t want to ruin anything – but the current thought running through my head was WHAT???? and HOW???? and OMG DREW YOU IDIOT!!!!. Yes, there may have been expletives invovled as well – a true lady cannot say…so you will have to imagine. So true to it’s title, you can tell the book had even me, the lowly reader, absolutely twisted by mid point. I wasn’t sure what I was going to do, but I knew one thing I was not to do was put the book down.. This is one of those books I started understanding my rear woul be on that cough or chair until I read the very last page and true to form, I did just that.
Emma’s writing was still as hilarious as ever, I still had some great laugh out loud moments – but I loved the seriousness she wrote into the story too. I mean – this story does have some serious subject matter and I was glad to see that not only was it handled in an amazing way, it was handled and written with the grace, humor, and class I have seen from Emma Chase since the first book I read from her. This book was not “Tangled” by any means since there was much more humor there, but she did take that humor and insert it into “Twisted” to make it a story all it’s own with it’s own feelings and needs – that’s what i loved about it. I wasn’t just one of the same, it was the living next part of their story and it just fit.
Lastly, I will say I walked away from this book an utterly happy woman and in utter need for the next story. I walked away feeling resolved and happy. I don’t want to spoil the ending, so I will digress no more – but READ it TODAY! You can see what I love about this and what you will love about this series and this author. Emma Chase is an absolute go to author for me from this point on – Someone i will always have my eye on for her next book out. It’s hard to find, sexy and romantic books that include male POV’s that are so real – they arn’t fake or silly – they are just real and that makes them even more funny. I just cannot say enough about her… Or this story.
If you love Drew and Kate. Go and get this today and be prepared to not put it down until it;s down. It will pull at your heart strings, make you laugh, but in the end you will be happy with how Emma concluded this part of their story – I can promsie you that.
I can’t leave without a quote – so here it goes….
Did you think Drew and I were going to ride off into the sunset? Live happily ever after? Join the club. Apparently happily ever after only lasts two years.
Don’t check the title. You’re in the right place. This is still the Drew and Kate show. It’s just twisted around. Messed up. Welcome to Oz, Toto. It’s a fucked-up place to be.
What’s that? You think I sound like Drew? That’s what Delores says—that he’s infected me with his profanity. She calls it Drew-speak. I guess after two years, it kind of rubs off.
So I can see that you’re wondering what happened. You were so in love. You were so perfect for each other. Tell me about it.
I know this might not be the best quote, but it’s something showing even from early on there was some seriouis stuff going on and Emma still pulled her humor through. You cannot expect this book to be “Tangled” because if you do, you will be dissappointed. What you can expect is the next part of Kate and Drew’s journey in real life style – unfiltered. LIfe gets hard, you don’t ride off into sunsets – Kate and Drew are right about that. If you’re ready for the real tale of how their life goes on from here, then read “Twisted” and you won’t be dissappointed” – my feel is that any true fan of the first story cannot be anything but impressed, so there’s my opinion….
The story rocked. Emma Chase did yet again an amazing job, and I will be absolutely reading the next story and the next. So get this one today and i’d love to hear your feedback!
