Twisted | [Emma Chase]

Twisted

When spontaneous and carefree meets cautious and responsible, falling in love can get just a little Twisted

There are two kinds of people in this world: the ones who look first, and the ones who leap. I’ve always been more of a looker. A planner. Cautious. Then I met Drew Evans. He was so persistent. So sure of himself. He made it easy to leap with him.

Did you think Drew and I were going to ride off into the sunset and live happily ever after? So did I. But life is about choices, and Drew already made his. In fact, he tried to decide for the both of us—but you know that’s not my style. So I came back to Greenville, to spend some time alone . . . sort of.

Because old habits die hard, and sometimes you have to go back to where you began before you can move ahead again.

Publisher's Summary

Falling in love is easy. Staying in love is hard. In this heart-pounding follow-up to Tangled by New York Times best seller 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 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, 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.

    "Annoying and disappointing"

    What happened to strong determined Kate? Apparently she was asking the same question. Hate is a strong word, but I hatd this story. I finished it because I wanted to give a complete review.

    Issues:
    1> No real plot just a bunch of pity-partying going on by Kate,
    2> 10 chapters of one huge misunderstanding where Kate was just as much to blame as Drew. When did lying become dismissable? Why wasn't her fault emphsized more in the story to everyone? It all started with her lie. Seriously this was almost juvenile.
    3> The misunderstanding was stupid that it should not have taken 10 chapters to address. It made me fall out of love with this couple.
    4> It felt more like an opportunity to highlight Kate and Billy Warren's relationship with all the flashback and him being there. He wasn't all that great of a guy either so to now try to give him some friend with benefit redeaming quality WT*. Kissing? Really. Whose suppos to believe it's truly over if you would still kiss. Perhaps that is the backdrop for DeeDee story in Tamed.

    The 2 stars are for chapters 1-5.

    "Somewhat unbelievable..."
    What made the experience of listening to Twisted the most enjoyable?

    I thought they narrator did a great job of Kate and as always I enjoy listening to Sebastian York.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed the characters and their chemistry together, but I did find the story line to be somewhat silly and childish. These characters are close to 30, professional people and have been together for two years yet the entire book is based on a complete misunderstanding that could have been easily resolved with a five minute conversation.

    I can't imagine a solid, mature relationship ever going through something like this.

    Story
    "SNOOOOOOOOOOZZZZZE"

    OMG, what went wrong with this story?!?! The only saving grace was the epilogue. The first 6 hours of this book I mentally tried to speed it up to get through the agonizing storyline and get to the point, and finally the epilogue begins and I was laughing out loud until the credits. Charlotte Penfield's voice was like a sedative. It may have been her pace rather than her actual voice, or maybe the combination of the two. I LOVED the first book, in fact I listened to it twice, so disappointment is an understatement for what I felt throughout the majority of this book.

    The first book was good enough that I'm not totally deterred from this author, but, I'll probably wait for a sale.

    Story
    "I missed Drew's Voice - SO MUCH !!"
    Any additional comments?

    Twisted begins two years after the end of Tangled, and it’s very different in many ways. It’s told from Kate’s POV instead of Drew’s. Smart and feisty, Kate can stand her own with Drew, matching whatever he’s dishing out. It’s one of the things that I love about her and this story. She is also the woman who finally made Drew understand that there was actually more to life than random meaningless hookups. Things are progressing for this couple which makes me happy - happy - happy. The heat is amazing between these two.…

    Life is good for one of my most favorite couples until about the 30% mark…then...HOLY CRAP! Let me repeat myself…HOLY CRAP..... You'll have to listen to the book to understand what i mean :)

    Over-all i did not enjoy this book as much as Tangled.. It came across lacking and i just couldn't connect to this story 100% -- think I was missing Drew's fabulous voice... Still - i am looking forward to the next installment... :)

    Story
    "A Scanty Follow-up to Tangled"

    Emma Chase’s second installment in the “Tangled” Series fell short of my expectations. “Twisted” as told through the eyes of the leading lady, Kate and is narrated terrifically by Charlotte Penfield This is the continuing story of Kate and Drew two years later. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this, and perhaps my expectations were too high, since I gave 5 stars to Book 1.

    Although I plan to continue looking forward to Emma Chase’s next audible, I only awarded Twisted an overall 3 stars, mainly because the narrator did such a good job with the material.

    Throughout this novel, I found myself frustrated to the point of irritation with the NUMEROUS, (twisted) misunderstandings between the two main characters. It was, in my opinion overkill, because while the reader is supposed to envelope the “love” between Kate and Drew, their lack of faith and miscommunications bordered on the ridiculous. While Book 1, “Tangled” was funny and entertaining to read, “Twisted” was more of a “ugh…give me a break” read.

    I’m on the fence with this one. Given the option, I probably would have to listen to it myself, and therefore making it credit worthy, however, I think you would be able to go into Book 3 without it. So, my vote is not worth the credit. Sorry.

    "Continuation of Tangled"

    This book picks up 2 years after Tangled, with Kate's point of view. As in the first book, you have to be able to deal with some graphic sex scenes, but they bothered me more in this book than in the first. Perhaps because it's from Kate's point of view, maybe because it's in the very beginning of the book - left me feeling slam, bam, thank you maam! I don't want to give anything away, but I had real problems accepting Kate's dealing with some things Drew has done. Couldn't buy into it.

    "*sigh* series ruined"
    What disappointed you about Twisted?

    The narrator either naturally sounded like a moron, or decided she would act Kate's role as one. It was intolerable.


    Has Twisted turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    ABSO-FRIGGIN-LUTELY! Although to be fair, the book was frustrating in and of itself.

    "Love the POV of Kate"

    This book is so much fun. Love the relationship between Drew and Kate. The first book is told from the POV of Drew and this one is Kate. Found myself laughing throughout the book. Plus Sebastian York does the ending.

    "Better than first installment"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Twisted to be better than the print version?

    Yes, you could hear the emotion in the book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    You could relate to Kates heartbreak


    Have you listened to any of Charlotte Penfield’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I believe she is one of the best performance narrators.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, and I did.

    "Expect the unexpected"

    4,5 stars

    Expect the unexpected

    We start off right before Tangled ended, this book is told by Kate's perspective, I had the funniest moments with Tangled, so what to expect from Twisted, well twisted moments were coming!

    I thought I would laugh so hard with this one too, but no, instead of funny moments, this book is all about drama and misunderstandings! A big turn on life, to think about it, for this couple, I thought they would last forever. They have been together for two years I thought by now, they would trust each other...

    Some time along the way I was tired, depressed and thinking if I should or not move forward some chapters... I didn't want to know Kate's drugs or alcohols encounters, met a new Billy it was like a new person and I never ask for.
    I guess I was missing Drew. I know, I know, what he did was stupid, selfish again, very extreme. I don't know if I could forgive him! Someone who want's to hurt their soul mate just because you saw something and you believe it's true without thinking it through.

    Kate and Drew I thought I knew you, I thought you were stronger and would act like it!

    Near the end, they find each other and I'm thinking (again), this was so easy, so much love thrown away because of some kind of betrayal or stupidity, so much drama before and now it was it, didn't felt relieved... One week and that's all, promises, promises... I wanted more, twisted enough yes, sometimes we don't see it's there all this time... but I would never shut up, but that's OK, I understand I'm not everybody and because at last, I had the chance to hear Drew's voice again!

    Love to meet Drew Evans and see some of Dee Dee's outfits :)

    I recommend this book!
