Title: Twisted Perfection
Author: Abbi Glines
Review: This book is full of sex…if that is your thing then this is your book. I have a friend who reads romances and swears she skips the sex parts...good luck with this book about 20 pages would remain. Lots of flirting and yet almost cave man behavior from most of the men in this story. I love a strong male lead, but the flirting is bordering on sexual harassment since many of the characters work for the men who seem to have more money then brains in this small costal town. Being asked to sit on a stranger’s lap, at first meeting, would put me off a bit…but I am not 19 like the lead in this book. She seems to enjoy the attention and all the men making reference to getting her naked.
The story was OK, kind of weak and over the top at the same time. I read the book and it didn't take long, not much there for story line….but lots and lots of sex and lots and lots of thoughts of having sex when they were not having sex. The ending leads into the next book in the series and since this is the 3rd book in the series and I have yet to read the other two I guess maybe I missed why the men in this town are so super sexual with anyone with boobs.
This book felt rushed and maybe the author just wanted to meet her deadline and that is what this book reads like…great sex and lots of it…story line not much of anything happening there. A bit disappointed by this book…but it was a fast read.

Synopsis: My future was about to be completely thrown off track because Della Sloane was under my skin, and I had to have her. I couldn’t ignore it anymore . . . I’d gotten close enough to her to see deeper.
Della Sloane is not your average girl. Yearning to break free of her dark and sheltered past and the memories of the illness that claimed her mother, Della plans a solo road trip to experience real life on her own terms. But the trip is nearly cut short in the little beach town of Rosemary when she realizes she can’t even pump her own gas—until Woods Kerrington shows up, more than willing to help out a pretty girl in need.
Woods’s family wants him to settle down with a wealthy woman in pearls, but he can’t resist this carefree girl in cutoffs passing through town. A one-night stand should have been enough, but months later, Woods can’t get the irresistible Della out of his head.
When a twist of fate brings Della back to Woods, all signs point to trouble if they don’t keep their distance. Neither is truly free, and a relationship could destroy both of them. With their hearts on the line, Della thinks the safest bet is to walk away. But Woods isn’t about to let that happen . . .

Aestra Book Blog- She loved it! Quote from this blog" "I don’t know a better way to describe Abbi’s books than by saying that reading them feels like watching a very well-written, addictive TV show. The scenes, they way their cut together, everything about them just makes me feel like I’m watching it happen right in front of me."

My Secret Romance Book Blog - Quote from this blog "For starters, I think the sex dominated this book more than the actual story-line. Abbi Glines can write some pretty steamy scenes, I'll give her that... But I had a hard time believing that the heroine Della, and Woods actually had any real connection unless they were spending time behind closed doors. It was almost as if the majority of the time that they spent together and got to even know each other on a more personal level was when they were having sex. I'm all for some steamy scenes, but when a book seems to be more sex than story, that's when I start to have issues."
