is an avid reader. Before her children were born she was known to
consume whole books in a single day. Writing has also always been a
passion and with the 2013 release of her debut romantic comedy, Tangled,
the ability to now call herself an author is nothing less than a dream
“Would you fucking stop! Why are you being like this?”
I glare up at him. “Because you don’t even care! I’m really upset here – and you don’t give a shit!”
His eyes open wide, incredulous.
“Of course I give a shit – I’m the one getting Jimmy Choos thrown at my head like Chinese freaking stars!”
“If you care so much, why don’t you apologize?!”
“Because I didn’t fucking do anything! I have no problem crawling on my hands and knees when I screw up. But if you think I’m gonna beg because you’ve been possessed by the Hormone Demon – you’re out of your mind sweetheart.”
Twisted is told from Kate’s pov and if you thought Drew was messed up? Hello Kate! In Tangled she appears this calm, cool, collected woman who Drew relentlessly pursues, in Twisted Kate is a mess…..thanks in part to Drew. I mean, come on, it isn’t ALL his fault. The whole gang is back and Kate’s ex Billy makes a big appearance, Drew couldn’t have been happier. We get a glimpse in to Kate’s past and realize that our cool as a cucumber heroine had a wild side. Her bff Dee-Delores, is a trip. She is a balls to the wall, take no prisoners kind of gal. She had me roaring. We get a different side to Kate’s ex that makes him very, don’t tell Drew, likeable. He isn’t the bad guy, he’s the guy she left behind.
Drew, well, Drew messes up in typical Drew fashion and you hate him for it. This time he goes overboard. Waaaayyyyy overboard. I don’t know how many times I wanted to reach through my Kindle and slap the shit out of him for doing what he did. Kate and Drew are like fire and ice. But in this case, I don’t blame her for doing what she did. Like she said, sometimes you have to go back to where you began before you can move ahead.
This book will bring you to tears more times than I could count, it did me anyway. It’s a bit more emotional than Tangled but still has you laughing more than crying. And the ending?? LOVE IT!! Drew and Kate aren’t perfect, but who is? Don’t get discouraged about this book not being told from Drew’s pov, Kate tells it just as good, if not better than Drew does. And it’s nice to get the girl’s side just this one time. And Kate really needs her girls now more than ever.
If you loved Tangled, you are going to love Twisted and I cannot wait until Tamed and then we get more from Drew in Tied!
Emma Chase has shot up my list of favorite authors with these books. Loved them from the beginning to the end and I cannot wait for more.
