Twisted (Tangled #2)
by Emma Chase

Stars:3.5

Reviewed by:

Synopsis:

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.

Review:

Wow…just wow!!’
This is kind of hard for me to put in words!!
I loved & hated this book!!
This book was a lot different then the other two books in the series. That’s for sure…

What I loved about this Book was the consistency of it! From Tangled to Holy Frigging Matrimony to Twisted… It all flows perfectly. The writing style the humor everything was just spot on!
I loved that!! I’ve said this before in one of my other reviews.. when you read a series you want it to be consistent. You want it to flow right into the next book & the next book with out skipping a beat… And you get that in this series!!

The parts I hated in this book were just to much for me. Stuff you shouldn’t even bring up or refer to them in the matter that they were brought up in.
Cause nothing can really compare to that horrible moment.

Bringing up 9/11 & a mother who drowned her kids…
Is something I don’t want to read about. Especially when you are trying to justify Kate’s feeling to certain situations! It just didn’t work for me! I just couldn’t believe the author would go there.

This book was about one big giant misunderstanding! That snowed balled into something so big!! It was ridiculous. It got dragged out for way long.

Both Kate & Drew had me going. & not in a good way.
I hated Drew for what he did & I hated Kate for how she thought of her situation!!
I was truly shocked to be honest!! That she could even think that way & feel that way just to please a man… It just disgusted me!!

This was just a whole new Kate from the last two books!
This Kate was weak…
It was very hard for me to relate to her.
She reminded me of one of those girls that would say & do anything to to keep her man…
No matter what she caught him doing red handed! Because her life just couldn’t go on with out him!

She forgave to easy…& I just overall wasn’t feeling her.

Drew…oh…. Drew…lol
I don’t know what that boy was thinking!! What he did was pretty unforgivable in my book.
And what he said!!! Ughhh… How can you forgive that!!!
I know he was pissed!!!
But… His true colors where showing there!!

The ending of the book was good. You get a HEA.. But to me.. The way they got there… Just left me with a bad taste in my mouth.

I am looking forward to the next book in the series.

Synopsis

A Novella

My name is Autumn Winters.

The truth is, that’s the biggest lie I’ve ever told.

My real name is Olivia Redmund. Autumn Winters is the curtain I hide behind. You see, I write bestselling erotic romance novels. But my life is far from erotic. The only fantasy exists in my head.

The day I met Hunter Grayson, that all changed. A handsome stranger on a train who turned my world upside down, made me think and feel things I never knew were possible.

But he’s hiding, too.

What happens when I slowly realize that who I truly am is more similar to who I’m pretending to be? I want to be brave enough to tell the world, but the fear is crippling.

Fear of myself. Fear of the unknown. Fear of what others will think.

But life is too short to be afraid.

And I’m so damn tired of hiding.

**This is an Adult Contemporary Romance and due to strong language and sexual content, is not intended for readers under the age of 18.**

Excerpt

“Shit,” I mumble to myself when I spy the pink vibrator, glaring proof of my non-existent sex life now on public display. “God damn it,” I utter again, shaking my head and scrambling to grab it, when I notice a pair of beautiful, masculine hands scooping up my belongings. Completely mortified, my cheeks flush a deep red, and I’m silently praying he hasn’t spotted my favorite sex toy.

My eyes make their way from the ground, climbing past the hands and up the length of strong, muscular arms to an absolutely gorgeous face, and I take a hard swallow. A chiseled jaw with a hint of stubble, irises the color of aged brandy, a sharp, sculptured nose, and perfectly tousled hair that matches his hypnotic eyes. I don’t realize that I’m staring until his lips quirk up into a grin.

Could I be any more obvious?

He tosses the items back in my purse and nods toward the vibrator. “I’ll let you handle that one,” he offers, his voice a rich timbre to my ears. “Although,” he whispers, leaning in close, “I’m sure I could put it to good use.”

My mouth drops open in surprise, just as he reaches his thumb out to skim my bottom lip.

“I’m pretty sure I could put this sexy mouth to good use, too.”

Pursuit by Dawn Robertson and Jo-Anna Walker Cover Reveal

Twinsie Jo

Pursuit_Amazon

Jude Emerson would never admit his love for Jenny Sunshine until he lost her to another man.

Lori London’s world crumbled when her husband was killed in combat, leaving her pregnant and alone.

Time has passed but hearts haven’t healed.

Obsession drives Jude.

Desperation leads Lori into a life she never would have considered.

When their paths cross, broken souls slowly begin to mend.

But can the ghosts of their pasts stay away long enough for love to be born?

Or will they be destined to a life of hurt, and loneliness?

About The Authors:

When Jo-Anna isn’t working her Monday-Friday 9-5 job, she’s spending her time reading, writing and with the love of her life.

She’s an all-around Canadian girl. Born and raised in a small city.

If you don’t see Jo-Anna writing, you’ll find her with her nose in a book. Whether it’s her words or someone else’s, she’s drawn to it.

Jo-Anna loves stories with Alpha broken males and that need to be ripped apart and put back together again. Men that fall to their knees over a wink or a giggle from their females.

Two things you will never find Jo-Anna without; her cell phone and lip gloss. If she has both of those items, you have a happy girl.

Since starting her writing adventure in 2013, Jo-Anna has met many people, real life, online, in her head and she loves every single one of them. Without the support from others, none of this would be possible and she’s grateful for all that has been given to her.

To learn more, visit Jo-Anna on her blog, on Twitter, Facebook, Goodreadsand Pinterest.

Jo-Anna Walker is also author of Break Me, Always Me, In the Heart of Forever (A Heart Story) and Possessed by You.

Dawn Robertson is a twenty-something indie erotic romance, and mother. She lives in sunny senior citizen packed Florida, where she wrangles her kids, and Pitbull puppy.

Dawn can normally be found swearing like a sailor, making late night drive-thru appearances, arguing with her kids (or being run over by their power wheels), reading a steamy romance while hiding in her bathroom, writing her little heart out on her laptop (or dragging her Macbook to the Genius bar praying they can save her latest work in progress), or sipping on a smoothie. She loves to hear from her fans, readers, and authors alike. Feel free to drop her a message.

Dawn rarely takes life seriously, so be sure to expect heavy sarcasm from her. She is also the life of the party, so be sure to meet up with her at one of the many author events she will be attending in the next couple months. Buy her a shot of whiskey, and she will love you for life.

Dawn is also the author of Hers, Finding Willow, Kink the Halls, This Girl Stripped, Crashed, and Take Me Out.

Expected publication: May 20th 2014

Blurb:
Right now, you’re probably asking yourself two things:
Who am I?
And, what the hell are you doing here? Let’s start with the most obvious question, shall we?You’re here, ladies, because you can’t f*ck.Oh, stop it. Don’t cringe. No one under the age of 80 clutches their pearls.
You might as well get used to it, because for the next six weeks, you’re going to hear that word a lot. And you’re going to say it a lot.
Go ahead, try it out on your tongue.
F*ck. F***ck.

Ok, good. Now where were we?

If you enrolled yourself in this program then you are wholly aware that you’re a lousy lay. Good for you. Admitting it is half the battle.

For those of you that have been sent here by your husband or significant other, dry your tears and get over it. You’ve been given a gift, ladies. The gift of mind-blowing, wall-climbing, multiple-orgasm-inducing sex. You have the opportunity to f*ck like a porn star. And I guarantee, you will when I’m done with you.

And who am I?

Well, for the next six weeks, I will be your lover, your teacher, your best friend, and your worst enemy. Your every-f*cking-thing. I’m the one who is going to save your relationship and your sex life.

I am Justice Drake.
And I turn housewives into whores.

Now…who’s first?

Excerpt:

“Unless he’s completely desperate or under the influence, a man can’t -and won’t – fuck what doesn’t get him hard.”

Less gasps this time, but every perfectly powdered face is beet red with embarrassment, causing my mouth to slide into a sardonic smirk. Truth be told, I love this shit. I love ruffling their meticulously groomed feathers. Their obvious discomfort entertains me. Seeing the rosy hue of coyness bleed through their blush is like a balm to my little, sadistic soul.

“And in that case,” I continue, “you don’t want him anyway. What you do want is for him to be salivating at the soles of your Jimmy Choos. And let’s face it, ladies… that’s not happening. Why do you think that is?”

Crickets. Fucking crickets.

“Anyone? Come on, ladies. I can’t help you unless you want to be helped.

So unless you all have picture-perfect marriages and husbands that blow your backs out on a regular, I should see some hands.”

This time I’m rewarded with the almost simultaneous intake of eleven breaths. They’re all still here. All willing to bare their souls and dirty laundry in an attempt to rekindle the doused flame between their thighs.

You see, women are liars.

Yeah, I said it. L-I-A-R-S.

They want intimacy just as badly as men do. But to them, intimacy is more than just the physical act of sex. They want to be cherished yet want a man that will get down and dirty. They want tenderness, but crave to be banged like a $2 hooker. They want a man that’ll go all night, but still have the energy to kiss and cuddle and talk about their feelings afterward.

Listen up, ladies. We’re fucking tired! You try going jackrabbit-style, throw in some Cirque du Soleil moves and see if you can keep your eyelids peeled. Us passing out after sex is a compliment- a testament to how good it was. And quite frankly, if your dude can hop out of the sack and go to work or run a marathon, then he still has energy left for sex. He’s just done having sex with you.
