Blog Tour: Twisted by Emma Chase


Falling in love is easy. Staying in love is hard. In this heart-pounding follow-up to Tangled by New York Times bestseller Emma Chase, Kate reveals that there is trouble in paradise, when unexpected circumstances force her and Drew to "renegotiate" their relationship.

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 hisin 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, Ohio, 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.


4.5 Star Review by Lisa Kane

Twisted is one of those novels that you can’t disclose too much information without spoiling a major plotline. It opens with Kate Brooks, back in her hometown of Greenville, Ohio, alone. A series of flashbacks reveals lots of adventurous sex between Kate and Drew has taken place (are you surprised?) and they are settling in after their first two years of a roller coaster/ tilt a whirl courtship. But then something happens, a few somethings actually, and Kate leaves New York. And Drew. Alone.
With the exception of the epilogue, the story is told from Kate’s POV. The difference between this one and Tangled or Holy Frigging Matrimony, is the seriousness of the story. Yes, there are laugh out loud moments as these two really are witty and snarky and have the most wicked sense of humor, but this one has some sad, tears in your eyes moments, and they are delicious.

Drew is at his most vulnerable and even goes against his usual alpha male persona and dare I say it…grovels to Kate, willing to take any crumb she is willing to give to him. My heart hurt for him. There is one big misunderstanding and so many follow in that one’s wake, like a snowball quickly turning into an avalanche.

“I’ve given it a lot of thought. You went right from Warren to me, jumped in with both feet. You’ve never just…screwed around. Played the field. So…if   you want to hook up with other people”-his jaw tightens, like the words are trying to stay in, and he has to force them out-I’m okay with that.” My face pinches with confusion. “You came all this way, to tell me you want us to…see other people?” he swallows hard. “Yeah. You know-as long as I still get to be in the rotation.”

When all is resolved, and tied up with a neat, pretty little bow, okay maybe with some tape and tissue paper-this is Drew and Kate we are talking about here- I loved them even more. Fortunately, Billy, Dee Dee and Matthew will all feature in the next book, Tamed, and I can still visit with this rich canvass of characters.

  1. Tangled was really good, but when I read it, I wasn't expecting a sequel. This sounds really good, though, so I will put it on my list, with maybe a re-read of Tangled first! :)
