Add to Goodreads            Buy: Kindle/Nook

Chloe and Drake have found their happily ever after... Almost.

When Chloe's mother comes back into her life with a bang, it sets off a chain of events no one could have ever expected.
Everyone has their demons, and Chloe and Drake's hit them with a vengence.

Sex, drugs, money, a crazy ex, and Rock n Roll.... Can they survive it all?

Things are beginning to feel a bit... Twisted.

It seriously pains me to give Drake a 3 star rating! I adored and loved Torn, but with this one, I just don't know how I feel. I feel kind of lost and let down by Twisted. I wanted there to be so much more for Drake and Chloe in this book, but I felt like I was rereading Torn all over again, with the whole jealous love triangle. Except this time around, I didn't have the Drake I grew to love guiding me through it.

Twisted left me very conflicted in the end, which is why I can't rate it above a 3 star read. I adore K.A. Robinson and her writing style, so the issue is not with the author. She had me just as hooked on this book as I was the first. The issue was actually with the characters. I just couldn't connect to them, well let me correct that, I connected with Jordan...absolutely adored him. Anyway since  I didn't connect with Drake and Chloe this time around, I wasn't as invested in them as a couple. In all honesty I was starting to get behind the idea of her and Jordan being a couple. Those two felt more real and believable to me. Maybe it was all the time Drake and Chloe spent apart, or even the lies and secrets they kept from one another. I don't know, I just know something didn't work and I was left feeling so conflicted at the end. I knew I should have been rooting for Drake and Chloe, not Chloe and Jordan. I seriously missed the fun loving Drake, I was not fond of the jealous possessive Drake. It irked me every time he threw Logan in Chloe's face. Not to mention that no guy was allowed to look or speak to her without him flying off the handle. This Drake didn't snag my heart and make me ache for his heartache, no this Drake made me think, damn Chloe it's time to move the hell on. 

The lies and half-truths really upset me. I hated that they both hid major information from each other, and it caused all the unneeded extra angst. I  mean shouldn't they have both learned from those hard lessons the first time around? I guess, I was just ready to move on from all the issues we had in Torn and move on to maybe some drama from her mama, while strengthening her relationship with Drake (I wouldn't minded a hiccup here or there, but...). After a while, no matter what book it is, so much angst and drama between a couple becomes overwhelming and I find that I lose interest in their outcome. 

I will definitely continue on with this series, as I am wicked excited to get my hands on Jordan, I mean Jordan's story! He was my favorite part of Twisted. At first I wasn't too keen on him, but he quickly and I mean quickly grew on me. He definitely gave Drake a run for his money, and as I said earlier there were times I was rooting for him to get the girl, Chloe that is!

Thanks to Netgalley for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
