Blog Tour: Twisted by Emma Chase, Review + Excerpt

Released On: March 25, 2014
by Emma Chase
Book 2 of the Tangled Series

5 stars

I honestly thought that Tangled was already a finished story, that Drew and Kate got their HEA and that's it. The end. I'm really pleased that Emma Chase still had something more up her sleeve where these two are concerned!
Did you think Drew and I were going to ride off into the sunset? Live happily ever after? Join the club. Apparently happily ever after only lasts two years.

TWISTED is the story after the happily-ever-after. We're all used to the HEA being the absolute end of a story. In this sequel though, Emm Chase shows us how perfect love story like Kate and Drew's can also go to the dumps. It seems like a sad story now, doesn't it? Don't worry though. Just think that after the rain there is always a clear sky and even a rainbow to mark the end of the storm and the beginning of a better day. =D Okay, now I'm getting cheesy, hahaha!

That is honestly what I felt while reading this book. Of course, as they were going through tough times I also felt sad and quite worried about what will happen in the succeeding chapters. On the other hand, the first book had established how solid their relationship is, and how much they love each other. That's why I also remained confident that they will be able to get past their troubles and emerge stronger than ever.

I won't tell you what the trouble is about, but when you read it... oh my gosh... *facepalm*

So! =D What I love the most about TWISTED is that the elements I loved in Tangled are still preserved here. Sure, this has lots of angst, but that's the beauty of Emma Chase's writing: there were still a lot of things to laugh about! Drew is still incredibly funny and sexy, though still being such a guy sometimes *facepalm*. Kate was a surprise for me! I knew her as this smart, simple and witty woman who won't take crap from Drew. I knew she could be funny, but she's even funnier in this book now that it is narrated in her voice. Fans of the first book will also learn that there is so much more to her than what was originally shown in Tangled. The very first page held a major OMG moment! Readers will know more about her past, her thoughts, dreams, feelings, everything.

I really loved that the last chapter reverted back to Drew's POV, though. It wasn't until I read with his voice in my head that it really sunk in how much I missed him! =) It couldn't have ended much better than that, in my opinion.

Emma Chase really outdid herself with this one! She's really excellent at mixing funny and sexy without losing touch of the story. She's also very good at writing characters with sizzling chemistry. Drew & Kate didn't lose their chemistry, and I loved every single moment of them together on the page!

The secondary characters were all still lovely and funny. There was one surprise pairing which you probably know about already if you read HOLY FRIGGING MATRIMONY. Steven and the b-- oh sorry, Alexandra (haha, love her!) are still a riot act. Matthew is pussy whipped (I think even literally!) by Dee. I love the parents, and even Douche Bag (Billy Warren, the ex) redeemed himself. Yep, no kidding. He's not so bad, really. Now you really have to read the book and find out why!

I truly, truly enjoyed TWISTED, issues and troubles aside. It has a solid story that really strengthened the chemistry and magnetism of the two main characters. If anyone thought there were still lose ends in the first book, I think this one tied them all up. I'm glad Emma Chase followed up the first book with this one because at the end of this book, there is no doubt in my mind that Drew & Kate will be together forever!
No. I'm going to prove I'll never leave you... by coming back to you.

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.

Be sure to read the first book in the series, as well as the novella:

       “Would you fucking stop! Why are you being like this?”
       I glare up at him. “Because you don’t even care! I’m really upset here - and you don’t give a shit!”
       His eyes open wide, incredulous.
       “Of course I give a shit - I’m the one getting Jimmy Choos thrown at my head like Chinese freaking stars!”
       “If you care so much, why don’t you apologize?!”
       “Because I didn’t fucking do anything! I have no problem crawling on my hands and knees when I screw up. But if you think I’m gonna beg because you’ve been possessed by the Hormone Demon - you’re out of your mind sweetheart.”

  1. I LOVED Tangled, but haven't got round to reading any of the following books yet. I really did love Drew and his ability to be a complete ass and yet make us all fall in love with him and his brutel honesty. I need to read this one!!!

  2. TWISTED will make you want to wring his neck for a moment! Or for a long time, hahaha! You are absolutely right though. He can be a complete ass, but he is lovable.
