About the Author

Liz Reinhardt was born and raised in the idyllic beauty of northwest NJ. A move to the subtropics of coastal Georgia with her daughter and husband left her with a newly realized taste for the beach and a bloated sunscreen budget. Right alongside these new found loves lives an intense longing for the bagels and fast-talking foul mouths of her youth. She loves Raisinettes, even if they aren’t really candy, the Oxford comma, movies that are hilarious or feature zombies, any and all books, but especially romance (the smarter and hotter, the better), the sound of her daughter’s incessantly wise and entertaining chatter, and watching her husband work on cars in the driveway.

Please tell me there's a sequel that takes place in five yeats. This can't be it. Enjoyed seriou. Reminded me of first love. 3rd book is not 1600 pages. Page count is off and often skips some numbers.

Oh Brenna Blixen. How you tear me up, then make me happy on the next page. I can honestly say that this is one of the most frustrating, heart wrenching, emotional, loving, exciting, and one of the BEST series I've ever read. I'll admit that I've had Slow Twitch since it released, but I've been so nervous about reading it. Junk Miles (book 2) was such an emotional read for me and I loved the ending, so I wasn't sure how I could handle anything bad happening to Jake and Bren. So, how did I make it through? I bit my nails, cried, sighed, swore, laughed, swooned, and fell in love even more. I'm going to talk about Saxon a bit. In a way, I felt like this book was FOR Saxon. I've always been more of a Jake fan for Brenna and yes, I saw Saxon's appeal, but he always rubbed me the wrong way. In this book, I absolutely fell in love with him. We get to finally see the real Saxon. He's been broken down and humbled. He's also feeling truly loved for the first time. Saxon made me melt. I think there is more to be told, but I can finally say that I will root for him and his happy ending! As for Jake and Brenna, they had a lot to uncover in their relationship. I won't go into details, because I don't like to give spoilers, but I will say that there were moments that I held my breath (passed out), had that lead ball in my belly, and sighed in relief. You know...I think I feel so strongly because I love them as a couple. I really, truly do. They are entering into the unknown time of their lives. I just hope that the adventures they take, will be together. That's all I will say on that. I want to briefly mention Evan. Evan is a girl that Brenna meets in Ireland and becomes friends with. Evan is spunky and full of sass. She's a perfect compliment to Brenna. I'm beyond excited that Evan will have her own book coming out soon. I love this series because the issues that Brenna faces are very real situations that teens and people in general face. Liz Reinhardt doesn't gloss over, romanticize, or fluff up teen reality. Let's face it, teens have sex, drink, use drugs, swear, and make mistakes. I'm grateful that the characters are portrayed honestly. As you can probably tell, I feel very emotionally attached to this book and this series as a whole. It's among the first I recommend to readers. Liz Reinhardt is a flawless author. She creates a setting that pulls you into the book completely. I highly, highly suggest that you read this series.

That better not be the end!!! I'm not satified about how Saxon was just drunk, I need to know if he takes the inheritance, what happens to Candace? Do Jake and Brenna go back to the waterfall in 5 years? Does Jake take the inheritance? What happened to Evan??? I'm totally freaking out!!! By the way, I really like Saxon! I'm kinda sad he found Candace! Gahhhh! I need moreeee! I hate waiting for new books to come out, because I read this series in two days, now I have no idea what I am supposed to do with my time! Nah, there HAS TO BE ANOTHER BOOK. She left wayyy toooo manyyy questions unanswered! Gahhh! There will be a book, or I will be severely disappointed. <3

Ok, now I hope everyone took special note above that this is book three in the Brenna Blixen series. If you have not read Double Clutch or Junk Miles then stop where you are and get to reading! I had the honor of being one of the beta readers for Ms. Reinhardt on this book. I have to admit that this was probably my favorite of the three! I do not say that just because this is the last book either. For those who are familiar with the story......I had kind of a love-dislike (I don't like the word hate!) relationship with all three characters. There was a lot of drama, angst, and hurt feelings but also a fair share of body tingles! I think that my favorite parts of Slow Twitch are simply the growing and changing that happens with Brenna, Jake. and Saxon. I know that may sound cheesy but once you read all of the books you will understand where I am coming from. You will still receive your fair share of snarky humor from Saxon, the struggles of Brenna's heart, and last but not least , Jake. What more can I say about Jake? In my sole opinion, Jake to me has been the one to weather the storm so well. You may not agree with me that's why I say this is just my opinion. In the end though, I was very happy with the way it concluded!

Slow Twitch. Liz Reinhardt. Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews. I enjoy a foray into YA sometimes &ndash; the emotion and drama from all that teen/early twenties angst is satisfying :) and loving the authors mentioned, Tammara Webber and Abbi Glines I thought I&rsquo;d try this. I'd read the Amazon samples of the first two novels, and found it relatively easy to pick up the story from there. Much of this book is played out in the form of flashbacks via different characters memories. That worked well, giving answers to questions I imagine were brought up in earlier books. I enjoy looking at a scene from different viewpoints, and loved the way in this book the secrets were slowly revealed and explained so much of the behaviour of each character. Brenna is quite a complex character &ndash; still very find of and close to Saxon and has had a past relationship with him, but she's In Love with his brother Jake. I could understand the jealousies each felt, Brenna is a terrific but troubled person. Jake &ndash; he's a sweetheart, loves Brenna but still finding his feet within his family with whom he's recently been reunited. Jenna is in Ireland when he first meets them, and he's subjected to some temptation in the form of a girl whose set her sights on him. Jenna is busy working, mulling over the past and present, and they have to content themselves with phone conversations til they're able to meet again. Jake and Saxons family &ndash; what a bunch of posers...I can see just how Saxon got himself into such problems, there's no real family relationship. No loving, supportive relatives, just ones who've decided to cut him lose with the threat of permanent cut off if he doesn&rsquo;t clean up. His aunt who he stays with is perfect, just what he needs, an adult role model who is supportive but not pushy, showing him love without strings. Then there's Cadence, she's the daughter of the family who own the caf&eacute; he's been sent to for the summer. She knows of his bad reputation, and they get off to a bad start. As Saxon gets to know her he learns all isn't rosy in her life either. Its a novel full of young adults with problems in both home and relationships, and gradually it all pulls together into a satisfying conclusion. It was a fun read, but more a tying up of ends opened in earlier books rather than proving the drama I needed. There was drama and angst, just not really as deep as I expected. Overall it was a fun read but not one I&rsquo;d read again. It felt a little too YA for me &ndash; but for the right age group I&rsquo;d guess its spot on delivering what they want. At &pound;2.14 for 528 pages its fantastic value though. Stars: three and a half. ARC supplied by Netgalley.

Absolutely loved this series. I didn't think there was a third book. I'm 100% excited that I looked some more and found it! I have not been able to put these books down. Brenna has to choose between two completely different guys. I haven't finished this book yet, but I'm looking forward to it!

I loved reading this series, I enjoyed Jake & Bren. For some reason I really didn't get Saxon & Cadense relationship, and the ending felt incomplete to me. I hope there are going to be other books to this series, I know Fall Guy is out now but I read a lot of reviews saying it was about Bren's friend Evan. So anyways the reason why I only gave this book 4 stars was because of the ending, it just seemed like it ended to suddenly, and incomplete, a lot of loose ends.
