The Book Barista: Blog Tour Review of Twisted by Emma Chase


I’m so happy to have had a chance to read and review the much anticipated follow up to Tangled.



Falling in love is easy. Staying in love is hard. In this heart-pounding follow-up to Tangled by New York Times bestseller Emma Chase, Kate reveals that there is trouble in paradise, when unexpected circumstances force her and Drew to “renegotiate” their relationship.

There are two kinds of people in the world. The ones who look first, and the ones who leap. I’ve always been more of a looker. Cautious. A planner. That changed after I met Drew Evans. He was so persistent. So sure of himself—and of me.

But not all love stories end happily ever after. Did you think Drew and I were going to ride off into the sunset? Join the club. Now I have to make a choice; the most important of my life. Drew already made hisin fact, he tried to decide for the both of us. But you know that’s just not my style. So I came back to Greenville, Ohio, alone. Well, sort of alone…

What I’ve come to realize is that old habits die hard, and sometimes you have to go back to where you began before you can move ahead. 


Having read Tangled and loved it I was excited about reading Twisted.  Who wouldn’t want to know what happened next to Drew and Kate? Right?! [Note:  I also just recently listened to Tangled on audio and would like to add that Sebastian York’s voice is perfect for Drew.  One word:  SEXY!!!]

Emma Chase’s writing style is wonderful.  Even though there were some parts that made a sap like me tear up, this  book was funny and hard to put down.

It was nice to see things from Kate’s perspective. Without giving anything away, one word sums up this story “MISUNDERSTANDING”.  Miscommunication is a bitch!!!  It can lead to all kinds of unnecessary heartache.  This, I learned from this book.

All the cast of characters from Tangled are here and you really gotta love them all.  Also, one of the best Epilogues EVER!!!

I easily gave this book 5 delicious cups of the yummiest coffee.



I close my eyes and let his words wash over me.  Drew has an amazing voice. Calm and soothing – but devilishly seductive at the same time.  He totally could’ve gone into radio.
I press another button.

And this time his tone is teasing.  “Kaate, you’re late. . Tell Delores to pick out her own god damn shoes. You’ve got a boyfriend who’s  sitting in a big, frothy Jacuzzi all by his lonesome. Come home, sweetheart. I’m here waiting for you.”

If only that was true today.

There’s more – some are quick and to the point, some are downright dirty.  And I listen to every single one.  He doesn’t say ‘I love you’ in any of them – but he doesn’t have to.  I hear it in every word. Every time he says my name.


By day, Emma Chase is a devoted wife and mother of two who resides in a small, rural town in New Jersey. By night

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA she is a keyboard crusader, toiling away the hours to bring her colorful characters and their endless antics to life. She has a long standing love/hate relationship with caffeine.

Emma is an avid reader. Before her children were born she was known to consume whole books in a single day. Writing has also always been a passion and with the 2013 release of her debut romantic comedy, Tangled, the ability to now call herself an author is nothing less than a dream come true.
