Twisted by Emma Chase
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
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.

4 STARS! YOU GOTTA LOVE DREW!
Tangled completely impressed me last year and I had been anticipating this sequel for months. The waiting was totally worth it. Twisted is written from Kate’s POV and I was a little worried before, because of that, but my worries were, luckily, completely unjustified. Kate was just as fun as Drew, her sentences made me laugh countless times and I admit she truly exceeded my expectations. I wouldn’t mind reading another book written from her POV, although Drew is still my number one narrator.
Nevertheless, this book has given me insight into Kate's way of thinking and I learned some things about her that I have not even imagine. I did not expect to discover that in her youth she was a bit wild and how much vulnerable she is in reality, although at first glance she looks like a strong and an independent woman. Sometimes she was driving me crazy, because as every woman, she likes to complicate things. Yes, we women are all guilty for doing that. I guess it’s in our nature.
Although neither Drew is not without fault, they were both a little unsure, too quickly moved in and skipped the dating part in their relationship and apparently failed to build enough trust in each other, because one misunderstanding separated them. I do not mind a bit of drama, but this was a bit too much and there were times when I cried and it was not from laughing.
I was angry at both of them, but I'm glad every cloud has a silver lining. In the end they both matured into more confident people, Kate finally became independent, and not only pretended to be as she did before, and Drew finally learned to spoke about his feelings. They got their happy ending, at least for now. And they deserved it, because they truly love each other.
Of course, the Bitch, Dee Dee and little Mackenzie were there to make me laugh even in difficult times. All characters were lively, full of energy and, once again, they won my heart. It was impossible to resist their charm. Even when I was mad I still loved them all.
The last chapter was written from the perspective of Drew, I was really pleasantly surprised, thank you Emma Chase for that. I had a chance to be in his perverted mind and that is an opportunity to treasure for life.
All fans of the previous novel must not miss this sequel. I would recommend Twisted to all fans who love contemporary romance with perky and funny characters.
He smirks in that way that makes me want to kiss him and slap him at the same time.
My boyfriend happens to hold a serious grudge against undergarments. If he had his way, we'd both be walking around like Adam and Eve-minus the fig leaves, of course.
It's official. Alexandra is going to kill him. For real this time. I'm going to be a widow before I'm ever a wife.
I shiver as seductive warm breath scrapes my ear.
"That wasn't nice, Kate. I can be not nice too."
