Tangled flowed, it was snappy and it was just a very easy read.
Coming from the high that was Tangled my expectation for Twisted was up there. Like I mentioned, it was set two years after the ending of Tangled. This time we see things from Kate's perspective.
Drew and Kate were happy but a terrible misunderstanding tore them apart. Kate went back to Greenville, Ohio where she grew up while Drew stayed in New York.
What Drew did was TOTALLY messed up. I was worried that I'll be unable to forgive him for what he did. He needed to do some MAJOR grovelling for me (and Kate) to forgive him. I don't know, you guys. I thought Kate didn't make him work too hard for it... I thought he should've grovelled a bit more. But, but in the end I was okay that Kate took him back because I was pulling for them to be together.
Also, through the mess Kate did gain inner strength she didn't know she had and was able to reflect on her relationship with Drew. And Drew realized just how important Kate was in his life. It made them face and work through issues that both didn't know were there and they became a stronger couple for it.
It was great seeing things from Kate's perspective. I liked visiting Greenville and Kate's old haunts. Twisted gave us a better picture of who Kate was and where she came from. We also see a different side of Billy Warren (outside of Drew's gray colored glasses) and he's actually a sweet guy.
My one other big complaint in Twisted (besides Kate taking Drew back too quickly) was that Kate's voice sounded a lot like Drew's very distinctive voice--it was explained that since they lived together for two years that she picked up on his way of talking but still... I don't know if I fully buy that. Drew's voice was just so distinctive, you know? Her voice could've been a bit more... Kate.
Overall, Tangled and Twisted was freakin' AWESOME. Yes, I had some issues with Twisted but really they're minor and didn't take away from my enjoyment of the novel. Do no let these books pass you by. If you're a romance reader, NA reader or enjoy contemporary romance, Tangled and Twisted are a MUST-read. If you want a break from your typical contemporary romances, then give Tangled and Twisted a try. You won't be sorry.
And for those of you who loved Tangled and are scared of picking up Twisted. I hear ya. I was all, Drew, how could you?! too. But in the end, I was okay because there was growth there for both Kate and Drew and their relationship.
I am very much looking forward to reading Tamed.
Oh, and here is a pivotal scene from Twisted. Enjoy!
