Goodreads Summary:

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.

My Swoon:

"I open the top drawer and pull out two pairs of handcuffs.  Delores got them for her post-wedding bachelorette party, but she already had a pair.  Don't ask.  I swing one around my finger.  My sexy strut back to the bed is almost ruined as I stumble on my four inch heels, and I giggle.  Drew rises up on his knees.  He looks hungry, like a starving lion eyeing up a juicy steak that's just out of reach.  He moves to take the cuffs from me, but I push him away.  'On your back, big boy.'  I know what he's thinking.  Can't you almost hear him? 'Mmm...Kate wants to run the show?  Interesting.'  He backs up and brings his wrists to the posts of the headboard.  I circle his wrists and lock the half moons in place.  Click.  Click.  He gives each one a tug, testing it out, as I rest on my heels beside him, my eyes smoothing over the rippling naked perfection that is Drew Evans.  Beautiful.  'You plan on doing something?  Or are you just going to stare at me all night?'  I look up at him.  And his eyes are eager, daring me to bring it on.  Oh, I can bring it on.  Don't ever doubt that."  (eARC, Loc. 73)

    1. No, you need to read Tangled first, and then Twisted second. It's a great series though. So you should read both books :)

  7. I really need to meet Drew! He sounds amazing! Great swoon!
