Title: Twisted Up
Author: Erin Nicholas
Rating: 4.5 StarsSource: Amazon
First I have to say that while I loved this book, I'm not a fan of the cover. After reading the story, the two people on the cover look nothing like how I picture Avery and Jake in my head.
Now that's out of the way, let's get to the story itself. Its been a few years since I've read a book by this author, but I'm glad I picked up Twisted Up. Jake and Avery were both really likable. It was kind of a friends to lovers type of story, but with a little bit of a twist...and I'm not talking about the tornado that makes an appearance.
I tend to like books that have a very logical progression to them and this was exactly that type of book. The romance between these two happened naturally. It wasn't rushed and it wasn't without its road bumps. They both had their own obstacles to overcome. The ending was sweet and really quite perfect for them. I couldn't wait to see them get their HEA.
I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a sexy small town love story.
About the Author
I've been reading romance since my mom first let me into her book cupboard when I was about fourteen. LaVyrle Spencer, Julie Garwood, Debbie Macomber... they took my 'happily ever after' ideas from animated princesses to real people in the real world.
I've been writing romance almost as long. Many a family car trip was spent with my head bent over a spiral notebook in the back seat. I'll confess that my very first attempts at fiction were fantasy and paranormals, influenced by my father's love of the Lord of the Rings, The Chronicles of Narnia, and the original Alice in Wonderland. If Harry Potter had been around, I'm sure he would have been on the bedtime story shelf as well.
But it wasn't long until I started writing about true love and that's where I've been ever since.
I'm so thrilled to be able to share these stories with you! I hope that they make you smile, sigh, maybe even choke up a little. Most of all, I hope that they help you believe in magical things like first kisses, the spark of passion, and the power of true love.
