Blog Tour for Emma Chase's "Twisted (Tangled #2)."

Twisted (Tangled, #2)
The Hopeless Romantics Book Blog are pleased to be a part of the Blog Tour for Emma Chase's "Twisted (Tangled #2)."

Amazon UK:

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

Blog Tour Review: Kirsty Lander

Thank you Emma Chase, this book has just taken me out of a massive book funk. I couldn't get in to anything I was reading, everything just seemed boring and samey.. not here though. I loved this book. Yay!

"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."

I had reservations starting this book because I had read a few reviews beforehand where readers were not loving it at all. There was a big *something* that happened at the 30% mark and readers weren't impressed. I was prepared though and I think ultimately that helped me enjoy the book more and not get so frustrated. If it wasn't for little (or big in this case) misunderstandings between characters then we wouldn't have a storyline half the time. That was certainly the case here. 

Another issue readers seemed to have was that in this book the story was told from Kate's POV as opposed to Drew's, like in Tangled. Admittedly, in the beginning I wasn't a fan. At times it felt like the author was trying to make Kate sound too much like Drew, the writing style used in both books is very similar and it was a little irritating to start with. I wanted them to be unique. However, as I continued on, it didn't bother me quite so much and I could just accept that perhaps Kate and Drew are pretty damn similar. 

The story itself was.. angsty and frustrating. Like I said, there was a massive misunderstanding and that is what drives the whole book. It pin points that one of Drew and Kate's major issues is the fact that they lacked communication. If it wasn't for this misunderstanding, they're wouldn't have been an issue, but there also wouldn't have been another book about them, so how can I complain? I love this authors work and would read anything in this series. I enjoy the characters and the stories they have to tell, whether that has me wanting to choke them or not. 

"You know that saying, "It's better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all?"
That's a crock. Whoever said it didn't know a fucking thing about love. 
Ignorance is better; it's painless."

Overall I did love this book, I devoured it within hours. If I had to come up with a complaint it would just be that it was far too short. I could read about Drew and Kate for days and never get bored. I rated "Twisted" 4 Hearts


I close my eyes and let his words wash over me. Drew has an amazing voice. Calm and soothing 

- but devilishly seductive at the same time. He totally could’ve gone into radio. 

I press another button.

And this time his tone is teasing. 

“Kaate, you’re late. . Tell Delores to pick out her own god 

damn shoes. You’ve got a boyfriend who’s sitting in a big, frothy Jacuzzi all by his lonesome. 

Come home, sweetheart. I’m here waiting for you.”

If only that was true today. 

There’s more - some are quick and to the point, some are downright dirty. And I listen to every 

single one. He doesn’t say ‘I love you’ in any of them - but he doesn’t have to. I hear it in every 

word. Every time he says my name.
