*Twisted by Emma Chase

Honestly, to keep this spoiler free is hard to do. So here goes nothing.   The short and sweet of Twisted.   Hot and sexy right off the bat. Drew is an immature a$$ hat and does the unforgivable when he thinks the worst of Kate. Kate takes off. Kate has decisions to make and a life to sort out. Drew decides to man up and gets punched in the face. YAY! Kate takes control and learns that she can make her own set of rules. Drew takes over the epilogue and hilarity ensues once again!   This really wasn’t what I expected as a book two in the Tangled Series. I cried a lot while reading this one. I mean a lot. Kate had some really touching moments and as a woman these issues really hit home. It was honest and raw. Like I said, it was unexpected. Oh, there are still some laugh out loud moments and Kate has her own snarky thoughts but it is most definitely different from book one.   I didn’t like Drew as much this go around. He comes off childish and immature. For some reason I thought he would be more confident and less spiteful in his accusations and ill conceived ideas of Kate. He deserved the punch to the face.   As for the secondary cast of characters, love, love, LOVE! It’s friendship at its best guys. When the chips are down, they all rally to the rescue.   Even with Drew becoming an a$$hat it was still a great read and one I could barely put down. Great job Emma :)

Falling in love is easy. Staying in love is hard. In this heart-pounding follow-up to Tangled by New York Times bestseller Emma Chase, Kate reveals that there is trouble in paradise, when unexpected circumstances force her and Drew to "renegotiate" their relationship.

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 hisin 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, Ohio, 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.

She stomps forward.  Billy moves behind my chair, using me like a human shield.

“Or better yet - would anyone like to explain why my best friend took off from New York like a bat out of hell, leaving behind a shit storm that makes Katrina look like an April fucking shower - and I have no idea why?!”

She takes another step forward and drops her bags to the floor.  Then she snaps her head to the right - in the direction of the perky blond teenager standing next to the lockers.

That’s Kimberly. She’s a waitress here. Works after school. She’s seems nice. 

And at the moment - terrified.

“Hey Gidget,  how about you make yourself useful and get me a diet coke? Don’t scrimp on the ice.”  Kimberly flees the room. 

Lucky girl. 

Delores points at me and yells, like Jack Nicholson in A Few Good Men, “Well?! You can’t keep me out of the loop, Kate.  I am the loop!”
