Reviewed by Rachel Book provided by NetGalley for review Review originally posted at Romancing the Book I both loved and hated this book. Lets start with the reason I loved it. The first book, Torn, sucked me in. I had to see if Drake and Chloe would stay together. That being said, I thought the story line was really interesting. In the first book we learn of Chloes psycho mom. In this book, she&rsquo;s back and she wants to inherit her sisters money, money that by all means should go to Chloe. Chloe goes home for a few weeks. Her awesomely hot boyfriend Drake, was just getting ready to tour with his band, so he can only stay for a few days. Long enough to meet Chloes old flame and get jealous enough to set the house on fire. With reluctance, Drake leaves, while Chloe tries to power through the last days she has with her aunt. I loved seeing Chloes side of the family. I found it odd, however, that she claims to need money in the first book and now we discover she actually comes from a lot of wealth. At any rate, it makes for an interesting twist. Suddenly, Drake, doesn&rsquo;t seem good enough. I loved seeing Drakes protective side and appreciated the fact that he was so trusting of Chloe, that is until it all hits the fan. One of Drakes ex girlfriends finds out that they have a mutual acquaintance. Chloe&rsquo;s cousin. She goes for a visit, fabricates pictures and all of a sudden Drakes perfect world comes crashing down. And enter in the hate. Chloe&rsquo;s mom was a drug addicted, TERRIBLE woman. Drake knows this, he knows how Chloe feels about drugs yet he relapses. WHAT?!! As a reader its the number one thing you PRAY doesn&rsquo;t happen. As an author, I applaud Miss Robinson, but still, my heart fell to my stomach and didn&rsquo;t return to normal until after the book ended, and even then I kid you not, I had a nightmare. I hated Drake, as in HATED HIM, because in the end, it took losing not Chloe but his dream of music for him to wake up! I mean she was the love of his life and it still wasn&rsquo;t enough to pull him out of it. I was pissed. I hated how accurate Miss Robinson was with the whole addiction scenario because it is so heartbreaking! I read to feel good, I read for the romance, and this one was just too realistic for my taste. I was so stressed out I could not enjoy it. Not sure if that means its incredible or just not the book for me. In the end, I would recommend it, but with a warning, you may want to throw your kindle against a hard surface halfway through.

Can Twisted by K. A. Robinson top the over-the-top angst and turmoil of it's predecessor, Torn? I think, yes, for sure! Chloe's life has hit some truly awful times, but she is never without the support of friends, even when she must be separated from Drake. Is the separation a good thing for them? Will there be just one more trial that breaks their often tenuous thread of love? Will the distance between them as Drake travels with his band become a breaking point for Drake, who obviously does not have Chloe's support system? Once again, deceit, conniving, and failure to communicate bring this couple to their knees, do they have just one more "do-over" with their relationship? Will it finally get the attention and maturity it deserves? K. A. Robinson has done it again! Not only has she created a book that will zing every nerve ending, but she does it with style and flair! Once again, I find that her characters became so realistic for me that I was doing the head smack again. Chloe, Chloe, how can you be so clueless, how one girl can so "innocently" have so many guys wanting her as more than a friend, and not know it is frightening to me. Be grateful they were not dogs. Drake, I wish you had the support system Chloe did. To the two of you, COMMUNICATION, very important! Twisted will turn your insides to knots, as K. A. Robinson holds nothing back with her writing. An author who can evoke emotion and strong feelings from a reader is doing their job and doing it well! Expect to have intense feelings about this book, the characters and how Twisted life can get. I received a copy from Atria Books in exchange for my honest review.

At the end of Torn, Chloe&rsquo;s abusive, negligent mother shows up at her doorstep. We find out that Chloe&rsquo;s aunt is battling cancer and doesn&rsquo;t have much more time left. Her aunt told her sister (Chloe&rsquo;s mother) that she wouldn&rsquo;t see a dime of the money thatshe&rsquo;s plans on leaving her unless she brings Chloe to her before she passes away. So the story starts off with Chloe going to her Aunt&rsquo;s estate to not only see her aunt one last time but to convince her not to give her mother a penny of that money. Meanwhile, Drake leaves to start the band&rsquo;s summer tour and leaves Chloe behind with her dying aunt, unpredictable mother, cousin [Danny] and his best friend/Chloe&rsquo;s first [Jordan]. Yes, the Drama Llama comes out in full force during this book. I was hoping that I would enjoy this story more since Chloe and Drake are finally together and there would be no need for cheating. However, so much drama takes place that it left my head spinning. Once the whole dying aunt thing was over, then we were dealing with a jealous ex/stalker, then Drake&rsquo;s &ldquo;bad-boy&rdquo; ways, then Jordan throwing out the &ldquo;I just want you to know that I&rsquo;m an option too&rdquo; card, then more of Chloe&rsquo;s mother and more of Drake&rsquo;s issues and around and around it went. Normally, I&rsquo;m all for a little drama. After all, it&rsquo;s what makes a story interesting but this was seeming more like a bad episode of Jerry Springer. One thing I did like about this story was the interaction with the band. We seemed to get a little bit more band time than we did previously. Since, after all, Chloe goes on tour with them for a little bit. I would have liked to have seen a little bit more behind the scene&rsquo;s when it came to the shows instead of the bus time but that just wasn&rsquo;t in the cards for this story I guess. Even though I had issues with the cheating in the first book and the fact that this book had drama bombs blasting all over the place, I still enjoyed the ride.

I really enjoyed this book/series. If you haven't read Torn by K. A. Robinson yet, make sure you so before you read this one. The characters were all believable and K.A. Robinson did a great job of &quot;twisting&quot; your emotions throughout these books. One minute she will have you crying, the next minute you will be laughing and then you will be angry. I highly recommend these books to you and I am looking forward to learning more about Logan in the next book, and hoping to see more of the other characters in the future!

Are we reading the same book or do the sex scenes make the book? This is TORN all over again.  Chloe continues to lie, mislead, and giggle. Chloe has not grown up at all and still not communicating with her livein boyfriend.  ... Chloe call and communicate with Drake. This is more of the same ol same oh crap. Juvenile writing - Katie riding in the family car for the funeral. Chloe not mentioning how Katie is hanging around to Drake.  Why did not the author not concentrate on the relationship between Chloe and Andrea (her Mom). After the reading of the will, I decided that this not even worth my time. Not sure I can give this author another chance.  JUVENILE writing, WEAK plot ... Poor communication skills continue as Chloe continues to mislead Drake with lies and omissions leaving him flapping in the wind not knowing what is going on with Chloe. Chloe ... way to support your cousin Danny as you galavant around the pool after your aunt's death... Go to Drake because you are not helping you cousin Danny at all.  Stop playing with Jordan and go support your boyfriend.

Mediochre. Still entertaining but predictable. Author spent a lot of time telling what happened instead of giving the characters voice and style throughout the story.

My mini review--I hope that once I am done recovering from Disney and the resulting cold, I hope to more thoroughly review this one.      It was great to get back into Chloe and Drake's world and romance. They still have that undeniable chemistry, but their relationship is put to the test through death, past relationships, and doubt injected at every turn.      This is an emotional book and it brings some new characters onto the scene, some that I liked, such as her cousin, and others that I wanted to choke. And of course, we get to deal more with Chloe's mom, who is a basket case, and has her own world of trouble that she is dragging along.      Chloe and Drake are separated for a chunk of this book and that allows them to grow and also make some mistakes that ultimately make them stronger, even the ones that drag them down and through the mud at first.      The ending took me by surprise and it was bold, but thank goodness for the epilogue that is colored with hope and redemption.  Bottom Line: Good second book with characters I love going through some tough times.

When I requested this title from NetGalley a couple months ago, I didn't realize a) that it was part of a series or b) that I had read the first book in the series earlier this year and found myself completely underwhelmed by it. Despite my feelings for the first book, I decided to suck it up and read this one to see if some of the issues I had with the first book (namely immaturity and unoriginality) had been resolved. I am very, very glad I did.  The author's writing improved vastly between the two books - and this one didn't have the typos and grammatical errors the first one did. Ok, now that I got that off my chest, I'll stop talking about Torn and start talking about Twisted. =) &quot;There are moments in your life that stand out above all the rest &ndash; moments of pure bliss, pure anger, or pure sorrow. Moments that take your breath away.&quot; I found myself completely wrapped up in Chloe and Drake's story this time. Neither of them are perfect, but in spite of their problems and pasts (or maybe because of them), they work oh-so-very well together. Chloe matured and turned into a character I could actually like. I might not have liked some of the choices she made (mostly the lack of communication), but I could relate to her more easily than I did before. Drake's flaws made him more attractive to me in this book. I'm not sure what that says about me. But, through the jealousy and the addiction, his love for Chloe was obvious. Sure, he made some terrible choices, but it could have been worse. (Thank you for not being a cheater. That would have made me sick.) &quot;It still seemed surreal to me even after three months of being together that she was finally mine. I knew I didn't deserve someone like her, but I sure as hell wasn't giving her up. I was too damn selfish for that. I wasn't sure what I had done in life to find someone like Chloe, but I wasn't about to start asking questions; I just thanked my lucky stars.&quot; These two had been through so much in the past, both together and separately, and unfortunately life wasn't quite done throwing curveballs at them. Between Chloe's aunt's sickness, her mother's abuse, her cousin's grief and her former boyfriendish person's jealousy and Drake's band going on tour, his addiction and jealousy, and crazy stalker chick Kadi, these two are in for a whole heck of a lot of drama. Since the book is written from both Chloe and Drake's perspectives, the reader is there for all of it  &ndash; good, bad and in-between. I felt like their voices were both very clear in this book. I love when books are written in dual POV, as long as it's done well. I like getting inside both characters' heads and truly knowing what they think, instead of their actions being up to the interpretation of another character. I would be remiss if I were to write a review about this book and not mention the secondary characters. This book would have gone in a far different direction, I believe, if it hadn't been for them. I won't say they interfered, necessarily, but they were there for Drake and Chloe when they needed them. Our beloved main characters just needed a little bit of hand-holding and support at times. I loved Chloe's cousin Danny. I wish maybe there had been more focus on him in this novel than Jordan. What I will say about Jordan was that he was a good friend to Chloe... most of the time. I sympathized with his unrequited feelings for her, but they just didn't work together as anything but friends in my opinion. Drake's bandmates were great. I would love to see a spinoff series featuring some of the secondary characters I grew attached to during this book. All in all, I enjoyed this. Were there things I wish had been approached differently? Absolutely. But, I'm not a writer. =) I'm glad I gave it a chance. The author's writing style was honest and easy-to-read. Her characters were (mostly) likable and definitely relatable. I feel like I could have been friends with these people when I went to WVU. I laughed, I cringed, I got angry at the lack of communication, and I even got a little misty-eyed. But, overall, I was left with a smile on my face. I received a copy of this book from the publisher, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review. All quotes come from the review copy and may differ from the final version.

Picking up almost instantly after Torn, Robinson again throws us into the very confused life of Chloe.  While she and Drake are working on their &lsquo;relationship&rsquo;, she needs to leave town for a family emergency.  Again, I was hoping to see more of the background that would give viable reasons for the conflict between Chloe and her mother; and only a little piece of that came forward.  Additionally, Chloe is again in another &lsquo;love triangle&rsquo; which gets a little old as she was obsessing over Drake in the first book.  This book felt rushed, there was not a great deal of development with the newly introduced characters, and the only truly &lsquo;adult&rsquo; person was an aunt who often ran interference between Chloe and her mother&rsquo;s drama.  Robinson seemed to have taken a step back in time with this book: both characters and language are far younger and more immature, although their situations are often those of far older people.   Drake is whisked off on tour, only to resume his &ldquo;bad boy&rdquo; ways, forgetting Chloe and his feelings for her and then dulling that pain with drug use.  At this point, I wanted to put the book down and walk away.  There were far too many crisis points for characters and the relationships, and no real resolutions.  I had hoped that my affinity for the characters, and their emotional development would have me more engaged, alas these multiple roadblocks of distance, conflicts, drugs and death all had me hoping for some sort of actual resolution or real emotion that I could tap into.  Again: Chloe is less than empathetic, and frankly none of the characters were very likable or real to me, and still I read on in the hopes that one would stand out.  Unfortunately, none did, and this story was more twisted and fractured for me than torn.  There are people who want something to entertain, that moves forward quickly without great emotional involvement and they will love this book.  Sadly, it was marginally worse for me than Torn, although I will not be reading more of the series, it wasn&rsquo;t a hopeless book.  Beta readers and a good editor could have moved this from passable to good, removing a love triangle and cutting back on the devastating dramas that happen would have gone a long way.  I received an eBook copy from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
