Twisted, K.A. Robinson

Chloe and Drake left off on track, they got over the Logan drama and decided it was time to move forward as the couple they could be.

Following K.A. Robinson’s ‘Torn’ is the sequel ‘Twisted’ and I must say it didn’t disappoint, I will even go as far as saying I enjoyed it a lot more than the first book, which rarely happens. I liked that Chloe’s backstory of her mum beating her came into it full force. I was captivated in the way her mum had multiple personalities to try and get her way, but also the way her moods changed at sonic speed and she turned violent.

The characters were consistent with how they were in the first book, however Amber and Logan weren’t in it as much, instead were her cousin Danny and his friend Jordan. Her relationship with them was different to hers with Amber and Logan in the first book, but Danny and Jordan had the same job as Amber and Logan, protect Chloe from her psycho mum.  Throughout the entire book I would see myself comparing Jordan to Logan, even though the way they acted around her was different Jordan was more physical and playful whereas Logan was her best friend he didn’t need to touch her to show his affection.

Once one drama ended another began, if it wasn’t Chloe it was Drake and that’s what kept me on until the end. It pressed on some important topics, drugs and child abuse and each one ended the way you’d hope it to end before it gets taken too far. It shows the reader that you can battle it; you can change your life if you have something or someone to change it for, and I thought that hidden message was an important one.

As much as I enjoyed the book, the ending was a disappointment for me as I found it was a standard YA book ending almost an ‘they lived happily ever after’ ending which isn’t really how Chloe and Drake were, their relationship fed off of the passion and the drama that was around them. I thought up my own ending for their relationship, one that to me seemed more believable.

I enjoyed this book more than the first, therefore I give it a 3* rating.


  1. Thanks for the great review. I have both Torn and Twisted to read, but I have seen mixed reviews for Torn. I am glad to know that Twisted is good and that you liked it better than the first book. I am looking forward to reading it now.

    1. Thank you for taking the time to read my review - I would recommend this series, but like i said the 2nd book in my opinion is better than the first.
