Christy's Review:

4 stars!!!


Twist is the second book in Kylie Scott's Dive Bar series. I loved it! This story was highly entertaining and the characters were completely endearing.

Joe Collins and Alex Parks 'meet' for the first time when Alex decides to come out of her shell and meet her online pen-pal who she met on a dating site months ago. You see, Joe and Alex have become very close in these months. They get along so well, and everything is supposed to be perfect when they meet... but there is one very big problem. Alex thinks she is meeting Eric. Eric who is Joe's brother. Eric, who set up the dating profile and never used it. Alex is not happy about this information. She feels betrayed.
"I know it must feel like you don't know me, but you do. It was just a couple of details. But the person talking to you, that was me."

I loved the way Alex and Joe met. I love that Joe took care of Alex when she first got there and talked her into staying for awhile to spend time with him. I seriously LOVED the start of this book. The first half was perfection. I read it cover to cover with no breaks. It was such a fun story that kept a huge grin on my face.

Joe and Alex's friendship starts to grow, and eventually develops into more. We all know those feelings they have between them have been there for much longer, but it was nice to get them to see it. When Joe has something traumatic happen in his life, I loved how Alex was there for him. Her friendship was unconditional. I adored Joe and Alex and how Alex started to see Joe.

    "Joe is smart, funny, loyal, sweet, hard working, kind, caring, and generally amazing in all the ways."

Honestly, this book was on it's way to being a 5 star favorite of mine, until closer to the end. I loved Joe so much that I took it very hard with his change of behavior. Not saying I didn't understand a lot of where he was coming from, but...

Another thing I loved about this book was the Nell/Pat/Eric story-line. It was great to catch up with these guys and see a bit of their story that was introduced in Dirty. Both Joe and Alex have a great set of friends and I loved to see their relationships with them. Friendship in general was such a huge part of this story. I also adored the message that the perception of beauty is different for everyone, and the best kind of beauty and allure comes from within.

Perhaps some people's allure came from the inside out. A good thing. Their ways and their words did the wooing instead of their physical appeal.

Twist felt real and honest. It was funny, entertaining, sweet and sexy. By far one of the best friends to lovers stories I've read in a while. And I truly did love the 'twist'! This is one I would definitely recommend!
