Publisher's Summary

My future was about to be completely thrown off track because Della Sloane was under my skin, and I had to have her. I couldn’t ignore it anymore . . . I’d gotten close enough to her to see deeper.

Della Sloane is not your average girl. Yearning to break free of her dark and sheltered past and the memories of the illness that claimed her mother, Della plans a solo road trip to experience real life on her own terms. But the trip is nearly cut short in the little beach town of Rosemary when she realizes she can’t even pump her own gas—until Woods Kerrington shows up, more than willing to help out a pretty girl in need.

Woods’s family wants him to settle down with a wealthy woman in pearls, but he can’t resist this carefree girl in cutoffs passing through town. A one-night stand should have been enough, but months later, Woods can’t get the irresistible Della out of his head.

When a twist of fate brings Della back to Woods, all signs point to trouble if they don’t keep their distance. Neither is truly free, and a relationship could destroy both of them. With their hearts on the line, Della thinks the safest bet is to walk away. But Woods isn’t about to let that happen...

    "So Happy I took a Chance"

    While looking for something new I decided to take a chance on this book & I'm so glad I did. From the very first line you know you're not listening to just another boy meets girls and have some trouble in-between. Abbi Glines has some great story ideas that keep you listening. And even if you're not crazy about the story, narrator Sebastian York will keep you listening. He has to have one for the sexiest voices I have yet to hear. He certainly makes it worth while.

    "This book is OUTSTANDING,,So Wonderful"
    Would you listen to Twisted Perfection again? Why?

    Yes,. I am again and again, so that I made sure I didn't missed not one word..It's that good.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Woods is the one to be in AWE of in this book. He's got some great protective friends also.


    Have you listened to any of Elizabeth Louise and Sebastian York ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    First time for Elizabeth, she did a good job, But Sebastiain York can read these books. He is an outstanding reader and you can follow him and see exactly what he is talking about as he explains, He puts so much into his reading that you think your standing right beside him. He is most excellent. In this book, he know what he wants, and make no mistake in telling anyone.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, there were many, I always loved how he could always find her and make her see things clearly.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a perfect love story, It has it all, and yes, it ends making you want more, no so much of a cliffhanger but a continuation. Late September there is another one coming out. And I pray they use the same readers. I cannot wait. These two met and at once have a connection that unforgettable, at least by him., Even with other's in their lives they still want each other. But try so hard to give others want they want instead of following their own hearts, Once reunited, they pick up right where they left off. There is some HOT love scenes in this one as well. Very well written. Woods struggles with what his family wants, and gives in towards it, but the sight of her makes him weak and he knows what he must do when another man only looks at her. Only she will make him whole, I love the way the book sways from one scene to another showing you how they follow each other to be either friends or lovers. Any thing so that they can be beside each other. It's intense at times, but hang with it, It's explained. This book is great, you will not want to put this down. So get every thing ready to devote your time to this one,, and sit back and listen. Enjoy this one, I'ts perfect. . I loved it all. . My first Abbi Glines book, but I plan to see what she has written in the past.

    "AMAZING BOOK ; )"

    This author (Abbi Glines) is one amazing writer. This story is about Woods and the power that his father has over him, and Woods deciding if he wants to do as he's told as a loving son or the decision not to become a puppet just to get what he thinks he wants.

    When it comes to books, I don't think fiction always as to be fiction, especially in the grip of a gifted writer.

    "Sebastian York makes Woods Yummie!"

    This was a classically awesome romance. I couldn't stop listening, and when it was over I wanted more. Della's tale breaks your heart. Though Woods without a doubt is beautiful, you are left with the feeling that the deep over the top emotional investment combined with the possessive desire to care for Della is definitely going to cause problems down the road. Della just comes across as a stronger character than Woods wants her to be. The only negative.. At least for me, I had a hard time falling for the "puppet demands" get you the VP office story line. None the less, it was a very good listen. I want more Sebastian York. He makes you hear SEXY!!

    "Narrators voice sound familiar?"
    If you could sum up Twisted Perfection in three words, what would they be?

    I want more.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Twisted Perfection?

    I enjoyed all if it.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Della and Woods meet!


    Any additional comments?

    I was positives that the narrator was the same girl that did the thoughtless series but the names were different. However, I googled it, and it is the same girl, she just uses different names! Thought I would let you know incase anyone else was obsessed with the thoughtless series before this one as well :)

    Any additional comments?

    **NO SPOILERS**

    Twisted perfection is a beautiful and profound love story. Abbi Glines astounded me with her ability to convey intense, wrenching emotion. I always believed that true love was one of those things in life that can never be described with complete accuracy. I used to think that the all consuming heat felt between two people in love was something that had to be experienced in order to truly understand how beautiful it can be...that was before I read this book. I am so impressed by this book. The sex was hot but also meaningful which sums up exactly what I look for in a novel. I've heard that this book is the first in a series of three continuing Della and Woods evolving relationship. The second book, "Simple Perfection" comes out in late Sept, I think. Is this book worth the credit?? Um..yes...hell yes! In fact, it's worth two or three credits. The only way this book could have been any better would be if there were more of it for me to read!! BEWARE...this book is like crack!! I'M HOOKED!!
