Twisted (Tangled #2) by Emma Chase

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 Thoughts:

Drew, Drew…dear throat punchable Drew, I almost forgot you from Tangled but 70 pages into Twisted and you had me grinding my teeth at you once again. *Sigh*…Poor Kate.

Twisted begins about two years after Tangled and is told from Kate’s point of view. At the beginning of the story, the couple starts out as the ended in Tangled. Happy. In love. And humping like rabbits. But sadly, darkness slowly descends on the couple’s blissful state. A simple misunderstanding changes the landscape of Drew and Kate’s relationship. But that one misunderstanding had the potential and the power to blow the couple apart forever.

It was almost painful to watch Drew and Kate go from bliss to pain. All within a matter of pages and for a while the reader is immersed in their pain, seemingly to no end. The story was humorous, as was Tangled, but not over the top with the humor and quips. The tone of Twisted afforded the reader with a serious story that was heart breaking at several moments. Absolutely heart breaking. However, and thankfully, Chase did not leave us hanging and she restored things to the rights after a nail-biting ride.

I also loved the character dynamics of Kate’s support system. Her mother, Delores, and Billy shone brightly for me in this book. Yes, I know…Billy! But give the guy a chance. He is actually very likeable in this book and a hero in his own right in this story.

I really enjoy the direction that Chase is taking with the series and look forward to continued growth of the characters. I have to warn you though. Have your tissues handy. The end of the story will leave you wrecked…but in a good way.
