Review: Twisted Perfection by Abbi Glines

Life outside of her house was a new experience for Della Sloane. The dark secrets of her past weren’t something she ever intended to share with anyone. They would never understand. No one would ever get close enough to find out. There was always a chance she’d go crazy sooner than they expected…

Woods Kerrington had never been one to be attracted to fragile females. They seemed like too much work. He wasn’t in it for the work just the pleasure. A night full of naughty fun had been exactly what was on his mind when he’d laid eyes on the hot little number that didn’t know how to pump gas and needed some help.

What he didn’t know was she was as fragile as they came.
The carefree girl who spoke her mind and didn’t care what the world thought of her was more breakable than he could ever imagine…

4 Star Review by Guest Reviewer Nicole Lorenzo

Della Sloane is haunted by her tragic past. She decides to take off on a journey of self-discovery, and learn how to live her life on her own. On her road trip to find herself Della stops for gas in a small coastal town in Florida. It’s there she realizes she doesn’t even know how to pump gas! Lucky for her Woods comes to her rescue. Tall, dark and sexy as hell Woods helps her with her gas and then invites her out to dinner. Unable to deny the chemistry between them Della accepts his invitation for dinner and they share an unbelievable night of explosive passion that neither of them will be able to forget anytime soon!! Della leaves the next morning to continue her road trip and finds herself in Dallas. Problems with her boss force Della to leave, and a co –worker helps her out by sending her to his condo back home and gets her a job in his friends county club. Coincidently, Della finds herself back in that same small coastal town in Florida and working for Woods Kerrington. The four months apart does nothing to lessen the memory of the night they shared together and Della finds herself under Woods spell again.

“The only thing you have to fear is fear itself” – Franklin D. Roosevelt

Woods Kerrington is smart, sexy, charismatic, rich and miserable as all hell. He works for his family’s country club, under his father’s rule and must bend to his every whim if he wants to make vice president. Wanting what is his birthright, Woods goes through the motions of a life he thinks he wants. This includes getting engaged to a woman he doesn’t love, so their families can come together and make more money. When Della appears back into his life he tries to keep his distance, and they have a failed attempt of being just friends. Woods just can’t stay away from her, and he finally decides to deal with all the consequences later, he just wants Della.

“You are mine. Do you hear me? You are mine, Della Sloane. I will take care of you. Nothing is taking you away from me. Nothing.”

The passion between Woods and Della is explosive, and they fall in love fast and fierce. But her mothers mental instabilities have scarred Della, and her horrific nightmares, and blackouts have her convinced she will destroy any chance she has at real happiness. Woods is convinced she will not fall in the tragic footsteps of her mother, and is determined to help her heal and move forward.

“I am in awe of the things you've been put through and the fact you can still light up a room when you walk in. When I look at you I see life. I see joy. I see my future.”

In my search to find myself, I’d found so much more. I knew now why I wanted to live. I understood love. I had found it.”

I absolutely love Abbi Glines! Her characters always feel so real to me and this was no different in Twisted Perfection.  Della is so broken, my heart hurt for her and all she had to suffer through. But she is very strong despite the anguish of her past, and Woods makes her stronger. Woods is actually one of my favorite secondary characters in the Too Far Series, so I was oh so happy when I heard he was getting his own book.!!! He is the perfect mixture of gentleman and bad boy. He has this naughty side to him that you really didn’t get to see in the previous series, and there are quite a few steamy sex scenes in here too!  Woods future is all planned out for him and I was so happy to see him break away from that and move forward with Della. Unfortunately, there is a small cliffhanger at the end of the book, and although I was happy with the way their relationship was headed at the end, I have a feeling there will be some rough waters still ahead for Della and Woods! I can’t wait for Simple Perfection, the continuation of this story due out in September!
