Book Description

A dark new adult romance...

Eighteen-year-old Danni Warren has big plans for her last summer before college: a cool job, a concert she wouldn’t miss for the world, and spending time with her beautiful girlfriend, Esme. But after one hell of an argument, Danni’s mother packs her off to stay with her estranged step-uncle, Gabe, in his lodge on the English coast. So begins a weekend of the worst punishment imaginable: no phone signal.

With his sun kissed good looks and sarcastic manner, twenty-nine-year-old Gabe Asher isn’t anything like Danni expected. She wants to hate him—he’s her punishment for standing up to her mother—but between surfing lessons and beach hikes, Gabe and Danni grow close. Maybe too close.

Now Danni’s questioning everything: old family secrets, her future, her strained relationship with Esme. One sun stained afternoon, Gabe and Danni go too far. And then everything else falls apart…

3.0 out of 5 stars Twisted Summer May 4, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
It has taken me a while to write this review because I don't know how to put into words what I thought about it. It's not that I didn't like the book, on the contrary I did. There were a few things that bugged me but it didn't cause me to reject the book.

I get where the title comes from. Some of the relationships in this book are a bit twisted. Dani is an 18 year old, "lesbian". She's in a relationship with a girl. Gabe is Dani's "step" uncle and is 11 years older than Dani. The relationship that forms between the two of them is twisted but so is a relationship with a mother who sends her 18 year old daughter to stay a week with a distant relative that hasn't been around for many years. It's like sending your child to stay with a stranger.

In the beginning of the story Dani comes across as a bratty girl. She's hard to connect with. The interactions between Dani and Gabe seem to be superficial with no deep connection other than to get in her pants. The dynamics of the relationships change. There is the age old emotion of guilt that keeps the characters from having who they want. Secret meetings and keeping secrets become the norm until it all comes to a head.

This wasn't a story that I absolutely loved but I didn't hate it either. It provided me with enough plot twists to keep me reading. In my opinion, some of the book felt rushed. The author did give a satisfactory ending where I felt like the story was told in its entirety.

The book has gotten mixed reviews but I believe in forming your own opinion. This is a book that won't be a waste of your time if you choose to read it. It won't be anything you miss if you don't choose to read it. The choice is yours.

3.0 out of 5 stars good story December 8, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I am going to start with a warning. This may throw some people when you learn about the relationship of Gabe and Danni, but I say give it time. You will overlook the ‘taboo’ aspect of it and enjoy the love story of it all. And let’s not forget the drama, because friends… there is plenty. At first, I will admit, I was thrown off. But the story sucked me in. It did. I was team Gabe and Danni. When you can’t fight it, you can’t fight it. They start on the beach. The bonding, the ...um...kissing..let's just say the start of their love story. On the beach. The perfect sound to a maybe, not so perfect relationship..
They start their relationship and have to walk away after just a few days, I mean their time is up. I don't know that I could've walked away. That Danni- she is one strong chick. And then there were the letters. Handwritten letters. Swoon, Gabe, Swoon. How cute was that. I know that we start the story and Danni has a girlfriend, I hate heartbreak, so naturally when you see it coming, you want to avoid it. But when you don't see it coming, it's even worse! And poor Esme, there is no saving that girl from heartbreak. But there’s also no fighting the draw between Gabe and Danni. I don’t think a tornado could’ve pulled those two apart. Getting caught doesn’t even stop them. I didn’t know if she would really go through with their plans. I will be honest, I half expected him to back out. But to my surprise- he followed through, so did she. So … I know you’re wondering… do they make it? I’m not going to tell you that… I will tell you there couldn’t have been a more perfect ending to this story. Bravo..

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and a bit different. April 6, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was certainly a little bit of a twisted tale. I'm not really sure what I thought of the various relationships it contained - the lesbian girlfriend, the sort-of-predatory step-uncle... Nevertheless, the author manages to pull it all together in a way that is fairly sympathetic and the ending is well done in that there are no cliffhangers and it is a satisfying, relatively credible conclusion - though I agree with another reviewer that it did seem a bit rushed. In all, it was an entertaining read, but I can't say I grew to love any of the characters. For those who care, the author has mastered all the technical skills (such as grammar, spelling etc), which made it an easy read.

5.0 out of 5 stars There should be more books like this one May 15, 2013
Format:Paperback
I know this book covers quite a slippery topic, but it all honesty it worked out briliantly, the twists and turns of Danni and Gabe's forbidden love story, the drama between and around these characters and the chemistry that pulled them together. It's an emotional and drama-filled story that won't leave you indifferent. I loved Twisted Summer for a lot of reasons, the main were already mentioned, but there's more.

I loved that Lucy V. Morgan had the guts to write a story about something so challenging, risking that there would be readers who'd likely hate it. She wrote about a bi-sexual girl who falls in love with her step-uncle, that's homosexuality AND taboo relatioship. That made this book unordinary and highlighted in the NA genre. And it got a huge plus from me. Don't get me wrong, was it an incest, I wouldn't have enjoyed it, but Danni and Gabe weren't blood-related.

Danni has mixed feelings about Gabe right from the start, he's sexy and doesn't curb the flirting, but she resists even though she likes him. After all he IS her step-uncle. There's a lot of turmoil and reluctant flirting between the two. And the fact that Danni has a girlfriend waiting at home makes it even worse, because after 'that night' Danni felt guilty for the cheating. How can you stop yourself from loving when it's so good?

In relationship, Dani is kind of like the boyish and Esme the girly lesbian where Danni dominates their relatioship outside the bedroom. But when Danni is with Gabe she feels more feminine and Gabe dominated their sexual interractions.

Cons:
I know that Danni is a bitch for cheating on and lying to Esme, but I don't like that Esme is always trying to have Danni for herself and makes Danni leave her friends and family.

More About the Author

Lucy V. Morgan writes sharp contemporary fiction, usually with a liberal splatter of filth. She is the author of the dark, hot KNIVES & FLOWERS duo and the standalones TWISTED SUMMER and BEAUTIFUL MESS.

In her new adult parody, TOUSLE ME, Lucy pays homage to her genre in the best way she knows how: by mocking it mercilessly.

Lucy lives in England, where she also works as an editor. She spends her spare time consuming lebkuchen, working through her TBR pile, and pretending she's an urban fantasy heroine in body combat classes.

She shares lots of teasers on Facebook, so you should look her up right this minute, really, shouldn't you?
