Twisted by Mandi Beck
I feel like I must start this review by saying I have a love/hate relationship with novellas. On the one hand I love the fact that novellas are quick reads that you can squeeze in, in between others BUT I also sometimes feel that novellas have something missing, are rushed and always leave me wanting SO MUCH MORE from the story, so very rarely can I give a novella 5 stars…
However, I’m doing a total 180 after reading TWISTED. Because I’m giving it ALL THE STARS!! Honestly, I haven’t read a novella/short story THIS GOOD in a lonnnng time.
Twisted is a quick read, that does move fast but misses NOTHING. There is sizzling sexual tension. Creative character connection that thrills to the very core. Burning hot chemistry. A story that was a joy and utter pleasure to read. And even after finishing I can scream that I want more but I want more of Jasper & Fannin. Everything else was there, nothing was lacking. Twisted had it all.
Mandi Beck sure knows how to write men. Hot, delicious, sinful, alpha men. She has wrote two of my ultimate fave hero’s ever and Jasper is now sitting pretty up there with them. Jasper is a swoony, swoony bastard. He made my heart go pitter patter and my stomach almost take off with the amount of butterflies it had flapping inside it. He’s raw, dirty, sexy, manly, swoony, did I say that? Wait, did I mention he was Scottish?! *gasps* Lord, I think I pretty much highlighted every single word this man said. Swoony, sexy bastard. *sigh*
Mandi also knocked it out the park with Fannin! What a sexy, sassy heroine she was. I loved her! Together, from the impromptu bar meeting, to the insta-lust, to the hot, combustible sex, to the infectious passionate love, Jasper & Fannin are PERFECT for one another and I adore them.
Twisted may be a novella within the Imperfect Love Kindle world series but actually in all honesty.. Twisted stands on a world of its own.
Six, tantalizingly terrific stars!
Three friends walk into a bar . . . One walks out the fake girlfriend of a hot, bearded Scotsman.
Fannin McGuire is up for promotion at Tate and Cane Enterprises, but first she has to make it through her stepsister’s wedding. To Fannin’s ex. Yep. Her ex-fiancé is about to be her new brother-in-law. One big happy family. And lucky her, she also gets to work with him.
While Fannin is putting all of her energy into her career, her ex is putting all of his energy into making her life hell. Just when Fannin is sure she’ll be attending the wedding without a plus one, in walks Jasper James to save the day. He’s the bartender at the Iron Flask, the account she’s trying to land, and everything she didn’t know she needed or wanted. Before Fannin knows what’s happening, Jasper is playing knight in shining armor and she likes it. And him. A lot. With his smooth Scottish accent, ridiculously good looks, and that beard? She doesn’t stand a chance.
Jasper isn’t in the habit of rescuing anyone. But when Fannin is confronted by her ex about her lack of a date for his upcoming nuptials, Jasper can’t help but step in. Her wild hair, violet eyes, and killer legs have him doing a few things he normally wouldn’t. Never mind that he shouldn’t be getting involved with the woman in charge of making the bar a global success.
Their fake relationship becomes more real than either thought it would. Now they’re at the mercy of their feelings when truths are twisted, and the lies don’t taste as smooth as the whisky.
Twisted is only available on Amazon US as part of the kindle world.
