It’s not often you can get sucked into a book from page 1. In Twist, I was sucked in and not let up for air until the last page was turned. This left me sitting up at 11:00 at night with an awesome book finished and not enough time to write the review. I HAD to do this book justice and I know I’m not always firing on all cylinders close to midnight. I wrote down a few words to remind me of my feelings…and then proceeded to toss and turn until way past midnight thinking of ways to express my love for Twist. So, in essence, I should have just written the bloody thing.
These characters are alive. I mean, I could see them and I felt like I knew them by the end. I love the author's ability to make you fall in love with flawed characters…with perfect tendencies. By this I mean, they can appear good looking to us, but to themselves, they see faults. This doesn’t always apply to looks alone, their personalities can have flaws too. When these imperfections affect your life and happiness, it can take an outside force to get you to acknowledge these quirks. Sometimes, they’re not as bad as you think. A little contemplation can help you acknowledge them, and work towards fixing them if they need fixing or live with them if they're just a wee quirk.
The start and finish of this story had my emotions going haywire. What we are treated to in between is the stuff of magic. Joe and Alex’s love story was not smooth sailing but it was an adventure. There are hills, mountains and rivers to cross to get to their happy place. We also get the joy of catching up with some beloved characters. Unfortunately, those poor buggers are having their own versions of Mt Everest to climb. Your heart will break for them but the glue to fix it comes from seeing them have such great friends and family by their side.
Twist, took me to the Dive Bar to catch up with friends. It was stage diving, dirty and full of twist...with a chaser to come.
It was bloody AWESOME!!
Wow! Kylie Scott continues to slay me with her fantastic writing! Twist is an emotional ride with complicated characters and all the feels!
The story of Joe and Alex is an amazing treat. Their meeting isn’t happenstance, but it wasn’t supposed to happen the way it did. But, from a rocky start comes a blossoming friendship and something more. Joe and Alex are complicated, really complicated. What seems like two characters like any other hero and heroine is really a complicated mess of feelings and anxiety and confusion and it is a wonderful ride. I have loved all of Kylie Scott’s characters, but Joe and Alex may just be my favorite.
The Dive Bar crew is back and better than ever with this story of opening up, letting go, letting someone in and ultimately losing your heart. A beautiful tale of friends to lover, Alex and Joe will stay will you long after you see The End.
I found the characters and their relationship a bit atypical for contemporary m/f romances and those details really made Twist really stand out. The couple connects somewhat accidentally via a dating site, but their physical distance makes them more online pen pals at the start. Having an established relationship prior to meeting allowed their romance to move along quickly without it feeling unbelievable or relying on instalove. Joe and Alex had good chemistry from the outset, and there were definitely some steamy scenes throughout Twist. However, there wasn’t an immediate physical lust fueling this pairing and that made it different to see play out. I found it actually validated their relationship early on. In another departure from the stereotypical romance hero and heroine, both Joe and Alex have quieter dispositions. They are happy to keep to themselves or fade into the background around those more boisterous personalities. Although having one subdued character isn’t uncommon, in my experience it’s less likely to see two. This created an interesting and new dynamic for me as an avid romance reader. I enjoyed how they lit each other up. That spark came through very clearly to the reader and showcased their feelings well. I also liked that Alex owned her sexual experiences. She wasn’t promiscuous by any stretch, but she also wasn’t waiting for true love to sweep her away. It’s always nice when a heroine isn’t the stereotypical inexperienced partner in a relationship. When added to her and Joe’s other character attributes, as well as aspects of their relationship, Twist really stood out among the sea of contemporary romances.
I think fans of Dive Bar or Stage Dive will be happy with this newest installment. Not only does it deliver the type of romance I’ve come to expect from this author, but it stepped away from the norms a bit. With Nell and Pat’s subplot getting a good chunk of time and resolution, some cameos from Stage Dive favorites, and a check-in with Vaughan and Lydia from Dirty, Twist had all the ingredients to make this an enjoyable and easy read. The book ends with just enough insight into another side of Eric, leaving me eager to see what the final novel in the series will bring to the table.
