When his younger brother loses interest in online dating, hot, bearded, bartender extraordinaire, Joe Collins, only intends to log into his account and shut it down. Until he reads about her.

Alex Parks is funny, friendly, and pretty much everything he’s been looking for in a woman. And in no time at all they’re emailing up a storm, telling each other their deepest darkest secrets… apart from the one that really matters.

And when it comes to love, serving it straight up works better than with a twist.

First, I need to admit that when I started Twist it had been a while since I read the blurb. I had completely forgotten what it was supposed to be about. That completely worked in my favor. When Alex shows up in Idaho to the big surprise of Eric not being Eric but Joe, I was just as surprised as she was. I could feel her mortification. Her predicament was so embarrassing! I felt so bad for Alex, but I loved the big bang it created for the beginning of this romance.

I loved Joe, but I understood why Alex hung onto her anger at him. He could have been the handsomest man on the planet and he would have deserved a good punch. I’m just happy he had the opportunity to make things up to Alex. Joe was such a great guy, and they were so cute together.

I loved all of the other characters I met in Twist, too. They all had distinct personalities and funny quirks. It makes me excited to read more from this series. I can’t wait to see what’s next.

Twist was my first Kylie Scott book, but it won’t be my last. I truly enjoyed her writing style. The only thing I would have liked more in Twist was a dual point of view. It was written in first person from Alex’s perspective. I would have liked to know what Joe was thinking the entire time. Other than that, Twist was a very fun read. Contemporary romance fans are going to love it.

  1. There’s something about that cover model that I love. It’s sexy. maybe because it reminds me of Jax Teller from Sons of Anarchy.

  2. This definitely sounds like an interesting read – do you think you’ll go back and read the first book in the series? I’m not sure if it would make a difference if you read them in order or not.

  3. I’ve never read a Kylie Scott story, though I’ve always been interested. But I think I didn’t request this one b/c I just have too many NetGalley ARCs in my queue right now. Sounds like it was a good one though, darn it!
