Book Description

Can a man and woman be just friends?

After having graduated from law school with honours, Edwin Santora, Abigail’s occasional ex and handsome housemate, could get a job anywhere he wanted. Of all the places to land, why does he take a position with her small firm? As if sharing a house with her irresistible ex wasn’t bad enough, it quickly becomes the least of her concerns. When Edwin’s macho arrogance begins to seriously affect her dating life, Abigail starts to reconsider their friendship. Not that Edwin believes a man and woman can be just friends anyway.

With Edwin’s swoon-worthy stunts and fierce persistence, Abigail finds herself catching feelings. When Edwin makes a friendly proposal, no-strings-attached, Abigail can’t resist. After some sexy role playing, she finds herself dangerously in love and wrapped back up in his powerful grip. Little does he know, she has been keeping a treacherous little secret and has set out to see if he is up for the challenge. When Abigail selfishly risks their relationship to get what she wants, will their friendship pass the test? Or will they give in to the mysterious forces trying to drive them apart?

Editorial Reviews


"Found this book on a chance.  Boy was I pleasantly surprised.  Hot steamy and couldn't put it down.  Cannot wait to read the next one!!!!"

"High drama from start to finish.  I can't wait to start seeing where the story goes from here."

"Wow.  This was an emotional roller coaster... overflowing with angst, sexual tension, awesome sex, and a whole whack of bitch fights."

From the Author

I hope you enjoy reading this sexy, sassy story as much as I enjoyed writing it.  It's a new adult romance with a paranormal twist.  Happy reading!!  :)

2.0 out of 5 stars Too much going on without enough follow thru March 4, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Several immediate issues come to mind: the cover is great, yet has nothing to do with the story. The synopsis of this book covers only the first 15-20% of the book, and there all manner of somewhat overused themes in the rest: love triangle, one night stand pregnancy, mysterious dead sister haunting or maybe she's just's too much, and character development lags painfully behind. Also, the h believes her sole mission in life is to crank out babies, which I find a strange belief for a woman with a law degree. Her friends are unlikeable & the h isn't much of a friend in several instances. Also, the "sexy role-playing" lasts about 5 seconds, making it kindof pointless.

This book is written fairly well from a grammar & spelling point. The author just needs to stick with a genre and really get to know her characters before writing about them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Twisted indeed! April 2, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Honestly, I wish there were half stars available, because I would give this book four and a half stars. I was actually surprised by how enjoyable this book turned out to be. There are so many romance novels on the market with sexy hunks on the cover and I generally try to avoid most of them, for fear that the contents won't have any depth. This book does actually give you many good reasons to keep reading.

Christa Simpson has designed characters that work with each other well. Nothing is simple and the relationships are not only complicated, but filled with the type of sexual tension that you want to see in an adult romance. You aren't sure from the beginning why Abigail feels the way she does, and exploring her relationship with Edwin and his competition makes for an interesting plot that keeps the reader moving forward.

I thought the secondary relationships were handled very well, the friendship between Abby and Aliah was believable and made the characters seem more realistic and the story more grounded. I love it when you get involved in a book and feel like you have known the characters forever. The hate/hate relationship between Maddie and the other women in the book made for interesting dialogue and some tension that I wasn't expecting, making it that much more interesting.

The sex scenes were handled very well and none of them were quite as over the top as I would have expected by the cover. Christa Simpson has a way of alluding to what is happening without having to give the reader every single detail of the act itself, which I appreciated, not particularly being a fan of explicit sex scenes. Some of the scenes seemed a little difficult to believe, but they were fun and made me smile in the end.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great writing and a lovely story! January 23, 2014
By Max
Format:Kindle Edition
Christa does a marvelous job capturing her characters in full stride. A little tension, a dash of action, and lots of attention to details that make this a really smooth read. Sex scenes and flirting are nicely played, and there's now denying the well paced narrative. Great for folks looking for a nice romance with a bit of an edge!

3.0 out of 5 stars TWISTED (book 1 in trilogy) - TRUE TO ITS NAME December 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Category /Genre: Contemporary Romance, Paranormal
Received from: Christa Simpson (in exchange for an honest review)
Recommended for: 18+
Grammar/editing: C – average writing, probably self-edited

Edwin and Abby have dated before, been lovers, bought a house together, but the timing was never right and they were just roommates. After university graduation, Edwin knows what he wants. He wants Abby. She has never left his heart, and he wants her to return to his bed. Edwin has never left her heart either, but she is afraid to be hurt again. When Edwin proposes a no-strings-attached relationship, Abby gives in to her dreams, but she isn't ready to give up on her life-plan. When she gives Eddy an ultimatum, will he follow his heart or allow rebelliousness dictate the course of their relationship?
This is Ms. Simpson's debut novel and it is self-published, so the writing is unpolished, but don't let that stop you from reading. I loved this story and I'm looking forward to seeing where it leads. The full trilogy is now available, so there will be no waiting to read Abby and Edwin's story from beginning to end. There is also the question of the red glowing eyes that Abby sees when she's stressed. Is she being stalked? Perhaps from the grave?

5.0 out of 5 stars can I have Edwin?! :) <3 August 28, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This is Christa Simpson's 1st novel and she nails it! She creates a friendship between two exes to "friends with benefits". She captivates us with her ability to make us swoon over the leading man, wish we were the so called "Friends with benefits" girl, humor, girlfriend banter, intrigue and more!

The two leading characters (Abby and Edwin) have a past and even live together. Edwin wants more than friendship and can't stand seeing the woman he still loves dating other men and intrigues her with the idea of "friends with benefits" to get things started again with them.

But what happens when things go well (very well and love exchanged again) but one person won't compromise on something even when then person you are with is really your soul mate???

I enjoyed the sexual tension, passion, swooning and fabulous love that is shown/shared in this book! Despite the love of the book there was anger and frustration felt and wanting to know answers to questions... and cannot wait until the next book to see where Christa takes us with these two friends/lovers!!

There is an element of mystery in this book as well and I am intrigued and interested in seeing where Christa will take us with that also in the next book/books since there will be 2 more in this series!

I have to say that I loved Edwin! He says lots of wonderful things to Abby... here is an example and he is so right. :) That is her personality to a T and despite it all he loves her!!
He says, "I love everything about you Abby, even that you're often stubborn, usually sarcastic and always demanding" I just loved him and know you will too!

Anyone who loves romance, intrigue, humor and mystery will love this book!!! You won't be disappointed that you read/bought it.
