But happily for readers — and wisely written by Emma Chase — the epilogue is all Drew. I think Twisted shows author, Emma Chase is not a one-hit-wonder, but a versatile and talented writer. In all, Twisted is a wonderful sequel to Tangled and one well worth reading on day of release. View all comments. May 26, Christy rated it really liked it.
Not all love stories end happily ever after. After hearing there was going to be a sequel for Tangled , I was stoked. I have to say bravo to the author. Kate was funny and although I wanted to see what was go 4 Twisted stars! But back to Drew Drew and Kate have been together two years. Living together, working together, being together- things are going well for them. That is until things get all messed up. And thank god for little Mckenzie and her comic relief!
My mom and dad has sex!
You only get to come every seventy-five years? Even though his actions were screwed up at times, he always loves Kate, and I feel like he proves it in a big way. Twisted was different than Tangled in many ways. It was full of angst, drama and stress inducing moments. Miscommunications, relationship issues, hard choices.
They were all prominent factors in this story. At times, I felt the author was trying to torture me. My emotions were all over the place. I laughed, I cried, and I was a nervous wreck for over half of the book!
There are still some very funny and very sexy times! My most favorite part of the story- the epilogue. I absolutely love this authors writing style.
I will read anything she writes! But word to the wise- if you start this expecting another Tangled , change your expectations. View all 90 comments. I refuse to believe this book was written by the same person who's written Tangled. I loved Tangled. This book? You know, when you pull an elastic band, and then leave it.. This book was like that elastic band, being pulled to the brim and then left, which hurts us readers.. This book didn't live up.
I only liked the epilogue of this book, because it was written in Drew's POV. I didn't enjoy being inside Kate's head. It made me want to punch her. I didn't enjoy it one bit. Tangled was a times better.. But saying that.. I will read Tied.
But that is like months away. I expected it to be not as good as Tangled.. I kept them low to avoid disappointment. And here I am. This book had no story, No humor. One could have forgone this book. It just wasn't needed. Nothing happened.. Except major draggy drama. It didn't suite her, this style.. This book was based on miscommunication. Like wow, thats what we need.
It was stupid, I wanted to punch 'em both all the time, but Kate more. It was fillers. I hate it when that happens, when authors fill their book with fillers with no base to hold it. View all 33 comments. Be prepared for Kate 2. This is a hard story to review without spoilers, but I will do my absolute best.
If you loved Tangled and plan to read this book, I fully recommend you skip reading reviews period. Just get the book and dive in, seriously. You will thank me!! Now, onto my spoiler free thoughts: First of all, WOW!!! OMG, Kate!! Who knew?! This is her story, and there is a lot more to her than we see from 4. You thought she was a goody two-shoes girl? Me too. In reality? Oh, not even.
It's two years later, and Drew and Kate are going strong. Or, so they think. And Drew messes up. No surprise there, right?! And so the course these two are on suddenly shifts, they are at a big impasse, and nothing is as it was. Sometimes it was in anger or frustration, other times it was in warning, and still other times it was just me being in total awe of him.
And when he pours his heart out to Kate, it will have you on your knees! I just love this guy! He is a strong presence in this book, even if it is Kate's story. The motley crew of friends and family from Tangled are all here. Dee Dee is a fucking crackup in this one! I am so glad we get her story next, I cannot wait for that one.
Final Thoughts Yes, I loved this book!! However, just like Drew - it was awesome, but not perfect. I had some small niggles about this story in some places, but I wont go into detail as that would be a spoiler. I will just say this: Was this story as great as Tangled?
Yes and no. Parts of it blows the first book out of the water oh, it's HOT! It is a slight bit darker and more serious in tone than Tangled, too. She is one awesome lady, and Drew certainly knows how to pick 'em. View all 74 comments.
Whoever said it didn't know a fucking thing about love. Ignorance is better; it's painless. Last we saw Kate and Drew, they were together and basking in lots of post coital glow. I wasn't really sure why a second book was necessary, but I loved Tangled and Emma Chase's writing, so there was no question about me r 3.
I wasn't really sure why a second book was necessary, but I loved Tangled and Emma Chase's writing, so there was no question about me reading this one. Now in reading that quote, you're probably confused about what happens in this book for such a sharp turn around to be taken, right?
And you're now expecting me to tell you what happens, right? Well dream on! Cause I'm not doing it. I'm sadistic like that, what can I say?
Let's just say that Drew screws up. I was a little worried that nothing could possibly beat the awesomeness that was Drew in book 1. And you know what? You really can't. But Kate's POV came pretty damn close. Add in all the characters from the previous book, and there were plenty of laugh out loud moments, Everyone- can I have your attention, please?
Mackenzie has an announcement she'd like to make" "My mom and dad had sex! Until Matthew raises his glass. It's like Halley's Comet, right? You only get to come ever seventy-five years? I couldn't get enough of it. See, here's the thing. I love angst in books. I'm a regular angst whore. But what I absolutely don't like is manufactured drama. What we have here is a HUGE misunderstanding that spans practically the entire book where all that can resolve it is one word.
You're probably thinking now. One word? One word. As much as I wanted to lay the blame solely on Drew's shoulders, I couldn't.
Because Kate was equal parts responsible for it. Truthfully, it just felt way too drawn out. But saying all that, I still liked the book quite a bit. I just didn't love it. It was great catching up with all my favorite characters from the last book, and I'm practically salivating for Delores and Matthew's story after the little teaser at the end of this one. I loved getting more Drew and Kate, but I'm not sure that a full length book was really necessary here.
I could have done with a novella. But hey, that's just my opinion here. View all 97 comments. Feb 25, Duchess Nicole rated it really liked it Shelves: This one seems to be garnering all kinds of spoilers. I had friends coming out of the woodwork trying to spoil it for me even as I was reading it!
What's up with that?! It's hard to not compare this book to book one. But it's just so different. Tangled was so over the top hilarious, and the humor was really the bigges "The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place. Tangled was so over the top hilarious, and the humor was really the biggest thing that people took away from that book.
When I remember reading it, I remember laughing my tush off. And Drew. Oh, yes, I remember Drew. He's such a lovable jerk, I couldn't help but love him. But in Twisted, there is a lot less Drew.
He's not even in nearly half of the page time, and I for one, really missed him: When he was present, he was either being a complete ass or he was being a complete schmoozer. He definitely shows his colors on two completely opposite ends of the spectrum. I think the wow factor for me really came from getting the male point of view Though I do want to add that the epilogue is completely in Drew's pov and it was my favorite part of the book. Oh, my gosh, the conflict!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This was my biggest problem with this story, and I can't say much of anything without giving it away.
I can suspend belief while reading books; in fact, I often have to. But the conflict in Twisted is the entire premise for the book, and therefore needed to be believable. The entire thing is a miscommunication. Not to mention Drew's initial reaction was so over the top that he reinforces how not ready for a relationship he is. I still think Drew needed a more epic grovel.
His misunderstanding caused so much pain and his knee jerk reaction shocked and disgusted me. He sets dynamite to them. Decimating the bridge, the mountains it connects, and any other living thing unlucky enough to be within a fifty mile radius. Drew never does anything halfway. Why should destroying me be any different? As much as I love Drew and still had major issues with him in this book, Kate really won me over.
Yes, her reactions are bit dramatic but trying to put myself in her shoes and to have the love of my life so blatantly disrespect me that way would likely lead to me having a very similar reaction to hers.
I love Kate's friends as well. I love the loyalty that they show her, and I also love Kate's advice about not telling your friends about the bad parts of your relationship. She advises you to tell his family, because only they will love him enough not to hate him afterward. Soooooo true. There is a lot of really great insight into relationships in this book. Small things, really.
A lot of obvious things that hit you over the head, some moments wrapped in funny packages, and still others told with more serious overtones. While this didn't have the constant hilarity that book one did, Kate's mind is still a funny place to be.
Her insults she mentally comes up with when she hits the "anger" portion of grief is simply awesome. I need to write these insults down and use them later. A couple of faves Cracks me up!! Another thing that I really appreciated here was how there was a lot of follow up after the conflict is resolved. The fallout from the things you said, the consequences of the things you did, that almost destroyed it all. That still could. And I do believe, another from the male point of view.

May 26, Catarina rated it really liked it Shelves: Okay, so this second books picks up two years after the end of Tangled, and show us the life of Drew and Kate.
But Drew being Drew, and Kate being, well, Kate, will have their own very particular way of dealing with the curve balls that life throws in their way.
First, let me describe you this book in a couple of seconds: It starts with: I got to say that yes, my expectations were really high because of the greatne 4 Dramatic Stars. I got to say that yes, my expectations were really high because of the greatness of the first, but still, I was expecting more. This was extremely hard for me to rate.
I ended up giving it 4 starts because despite everything I still love Drew and Kate… and I still love this series. This is a much emotional reading with some angst in the middle. It would have been a lot better if it was just a novella, with less drama and more centered in the main subject that originated all of the plotline: Extremely well written, some fun moments and emotionally draining. Character Development: Although Drew pissed me off a lot of times, I still loved him.
And he ended up completely redeeming in my eyes. The supportive characters are completely nuts and awesome as ever. View all 31 comments. May 26, Geri Reads rated it really liked it. If you read this book expecting another Tangled you'll be sorely disappointed. This book is nothing like it's predecessor and that's why I loved it.
Don't get me wrong. I loved Tangled but Twisted shows a side to Emma Chase that we've never seen before. In a way, Twisted is more fleshed out than Tangled. The plot was solid and it could have gone horribly wrong and cliched but Emma Chase stuck with it and executed it really well.
The Story It's two years after the events from Tangl 4. The Story It's two years after the events from Tangled. Drew and Kate are living together and everything was well and good until Drew screwed it all up.
He hurt Kate. And I was like There were some pretty good angst in this book, which I thoroughly enjoyed. But despite of its more serious tone, there are still plenty of laugh out loud moments in this book courtesy of the man himself, Drew and the rest of the gang. And oh, did I mention that this book is hot? While this book is told mainly from Kate's point of view, Drew's POV did make an appearance with some very unforgettable words of wisdom.
So Drew fans; don't despair. But what really endeared this book to me was Kate. I thoroughly enjoyed delving into her back story with DeeDee and Billy; their friendship, their family--everything!! And that epilogue And before I forget: Please, please don't ask me for some spoilers!! Yes, it has a happy ending. That's all I can say. Beyond that??

I will still be reading Dee Dee's book. I'm not going to spoil it and I'll also say I would still encourage you to read it because you may love it. I, however, am NOT a fan of unnecessary And this book had plenty. All because of a misunderstanding. These two are lawyers. I blame Drew a little more 2. I blame Drew a little more but it's also Kate's fault as well. And neither one gave the other time to talk and get clarification on anything.

May 30, Lucia rated it liked it Recommends it for: My Drew and Kate: Hot, snarky, intense and frustrating. Twisted will have you glued to the pages until you read them all!
Kate and Drew are remarkable characters. But while in Tangled we got insight into male head, this instalment shows us female perspective of relationships. Two years later, new problems, different approach, same characters. That is Twisted. Once again, I hig My Drew and Kate: Once again, I highlighted numerous quotes and passages. Emma Chase has an incredible way with words and it makes her books stand out among other books in this genre.
Her writing style is catchy, entertaining and makes it impossible for readers to put it down before they finish it. He may be the most impulsive guy ever waking this earth, but he is still so unresistibly lovable.
And he cracks me up as no one else! If for nothing else, you should read this book because of Drew. And either you kick hard to keep up, or he rolls over you and leaves you behind with a face full of sand. Sometimes, there may have been too much drama. But you know what? Overall it really worked. Just go into this book blind, enjoy and experience it all yourself. At this point, I cannot imagine having enough of Drew and Kate!
Dec 26, Anne rated it really liked it Shelves: Did you like Tangled? Well, if you thought Drew's voice was hilarious, and can't wait to read more from him about his relationship with Kate?
Go somewhere else. Yeah, this whole book other than a little epilogue thingy is told from Kate's point of view. And while I love Kate, she's just not as funny. So, no, this book does not have the same kind vibe as Tangled. I'm not saying that to keep you from reading Twisted , I just want to warn you to get your expectations in check.
It's still a good roma Did you like Tangled? It's still a good romance, it's just different. I liked it, but there were a few issues I had with some parts of the plot. This one is difficult to review with giving spoilers, but basically after a huge misunderstanding, Drew screws up. The entire thing was such a fairly obvious mix-up, and you'll kind of roll your eyes at the ridiculous 'snowball into nonsense' that ends their relationship. Honestly, if either of them had attempted to talk about what was happening, the story would've been over in 50 pages.
You mean I didn't see what I thought I saw?! No, it was something else entirely Him: So you love me? And as an added bonus It's annoying when there's an easy answer just staring a couple in the face, but they're collectively too idiotic to open a line of communication. But I get it, there has to be something to shake things up, and in this case it was the old Jumping To Conclusions problem.
I'd like it to be a little less contrived. The pace of the book bumped along nicely, and it didn't drag out the inevitable facepalm that Drew had coming to him And Chase seems to be the kind of author who can get away with plot holes, because her writing is so friggin' bouncy and fun!
Damn you, Emma Chase! Part of the reason I liked it so much, I think, was because Kate's friends and her mother played such a large role in the story. I loved that her ex from the last book really redeemed himself, and helped her out so unselfishly.
Her mom was awesome, and it was nice to get to know her in this story. There was one thing at the end that for some reason really grated on my nerves. In fact, it annoyed me so much that I felt like I couldn't end this review without ranting about it! But don't click the spoiler tag unless you've already read the book or seriously don't care about spoilers, alright? Ok, sure, he said he would reciprocate as soon as she was 'cleared by her doctor', but I don't care.
She just had a baby a few hours ago! And there are stitches keeping her twat and her asshole two separate holes right now! So, no. She will not feel like sucking your dick for a while. Add on to that the crying, diaper changing, and feeding that a newborn requires, and I'd suggest he keep his dick hidden away from her for a while.
Now, I'm sure there are women who wanted to 'please their man' in the delivery room, but I sure as shit wasn't one of them. And the whole insinuation that I'm somehow frigid because of that, pissed me off.
Get real! Also, who the fuck pops a boner watching their baby mamma breastfeed?! It's not sexual! There's a kid attached to the tit!
Or maybe it's sexy when she pulls a tampon out? So, yes, this was a fun romance, but don't expect the same thing as before.
It's not as good as the first book, and the humor while there just isn't as funny. I'd still recommend it, though! View all 14 comments. To say this one didn't meet my expectations is an understatement. Twisted 1 - a confused mess, tangle, or knot made by twisting. The reason to my somehow low rating is the incessant and absurdly foolish misunderstanding , nevertheless i really liked Kate's POV, even though i was hoping to catch a little more of Drew's piece of mind. This book doesn't add much to Drew and Kate's story but you get snippets of Drew's family too, with a special mention of the lovely and growing up Mackenzie.
I'd still recommend it if you liked Drew and Kate in tangled, with a warning about the drama angst. View all 50 comments. Nov 22, Ramona rated it it was ok. You know that scene with Chris Evans when at Jimmy Fallon's show and talking about his nephew that couldn't pronounce the "L" correctly and instead came out "W"?
Yap, that's me! I am a huge fan of Tangled and sincerely Drew was the funniest hero in all my reading history, which is not poor at all. I laughed so much, until tears came out. He was hilarious and sometimes so immature that I wanted to punch him in the face for hurting Kate and jumping to stupid conclusions w You know that scene with Chris Evans when at Jimmy Fallon's show and talking about his nephew that couldn't pronounce the "L" correctly and instead came out "W"?
He was hilarious and sometimes so immature that I wanted to punch him in the face for hurting Kate and jumping to stupid conclusions without asking questions first. The second installment from the series provides us a glimpse into their relationship, that developed in the course of 2 years.
It was literally the hottest prologue I've ever read and believe me, this 2 stars are only for it.. I'm lying, there is a scene at the end of the book between Drew and Kate's mom that really soften me and I remember why Drew is such a great guy. I thought maybe our heroes are mature now and learned their lesson, but as the plot progressed I figured that I was so wrong.. History is repeating and that really made me angry because I was having a deja-vu over the same thing Only now this misunderstanding that seemed to be the whole plot of the book was so childish and could have been prevented by talking and sorting things out on the spot!!!!
Drew behavior made me so angry at him and I wanted to be there to throw him out the window. I know that he was hurt but you don't talk like that to a woman that shared your bed for 2 years and most of all, LOVE!!! Kate acted childish as well, and would have been able to prevent it by coming clean with her secret.. Aside from the simple and frustrating action that lead to this book, the narrating style was not for me..
The writer tried to make her funny like Drew, but only intoxicated my with a lot of details about certain characters and events that were not interesting and I ended up skipping a lot of them in order to get to the point already.. Not to mention that at the end of the book, after reading Kate's idea of being independent I couldn't understand it and just gave up If you ask me, the whole idea of the view spoiler [ pregnancy hide spoiler ] could has been easily included into an longer epilogue and everyone was happy.
I am very sorry for this raking and hope that I was not very harsh with this book, but my expectations were higher.
