(Eric's story!)
4.8 Stars

When his younger brother loses interest in online dating, hot, bearded, bartender extraordinaire, Joe Collins, only intends to log into his account and shut it down. Until he reads about her.

Alex Parks is funny, friendly, and pretty much everything he's been looking for in a woman. And in no time at all they're emailing up a storm, telling each other their deepest darkest secrets...apart from the one that really matters.
And when it comes to love, serving it straight up works better than with a twist.

We're back in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, to witness the Happily Ever After of Joe and Alex.

Only it's not really looking very Happily in the beginning.
Alex came into town to surprise birthday boy Eric!
Only Eric doesn't know her!!!!
The guy she's been falling for these last months, the guy she shared everything with via email is not Eric. It's Joe - Eric's brother. Who accidentally answered when Alex chatted up Eric on his online-dating-profile!
And now poor Alex is horribly embarrassed and angry at both guys!
But the more time she spends with blond and tattoed lumberjack hottie Joe - the more she doesn't want to leave ....

What will happen with Joe & Alex?
Will there be a Happily Ever After??

Book #2 in this series!
And it was just as cute as the first one!
We meet all the others again - Vaughn, Pat, Nell and maybe even a couple of our favorite rockstars...
And we're back in the bar, of course.
Joe is working there, but his passion is carpentry. He wants to turn the empty upstairs rooms into apartments. And Alex is just the person to help him with those plans. But can he convince her to stay???
They're practically best friends - only Alex is still pretty angry.
But not for long, of course ☺

I really enjoyed reading this book!
It's such a fun and adorable romance. I wouldn't mind seeing it on TV one day!

Of course it's not all happy, sexy, fun. We have some very serious moments in the book - both in the present and in the past - that we have to get through to get to our happily ever after...

Great Characters. Some Drama. Lots of fun. Sex. Talking. Great Romance.
I really enjoyed reading it!

TWIST was such a beautiful & sexy & adorable romance! Run to your nearest amazon for your very own Joe - this one is MINE!!!

ARC received from publisher via Netgalley for an honest review.

Word of advice - do not decide to read the first chapter of Twist at your desk during your lunch break!  If you are like me you will have to explain the shimmering eyes and upset face!

Right from the get go Twist gripped me vice like around the heart and didn't let go until I closed the book.

 But from horrible beginnings, our lovelies Joe and Alex tell a wonderful story. It is not all sweetness and light, but as they forge a new relationship, all kinds of secrets come to the fore.

I loved that we got more of the Dive Bar crew - I may have LOL'd at Vaughan at times.  I am still not rue what I think of Joe's brother Eric, but I do adore this rag tag bunch of friends.

I cannot confirm nor deny that our favourite rock stars may make an appearance too!

I laughed, I cried, I got angry (oh so angry at times!) but I could not put this book down.

No I am inpatiently waiting for the next book, Chaser!

• Small Excerpt •

“I wanted to talk to you a bit more about what happened between us online,” he said, his mouth a serious straight line. “How I came to use my brother’s profile.”
Ugh. “I’m pretty sure I found out everything I needed to know last night.”
“I didn’t mean to lie to you, Alex.”
“Once is a mistake.” I crossed my legs, kicking my black leather bootie back and forth. So I was a little aggravated. Sue me. “Months’ worth of e-mails is not. You could have introduced yourself to me, Joe, told me who you really were. You chose not to. Christ, no wonder you kept putting off meeting. I should have known something was wrong.”
“You’re right. I shouldn’t try to sell you excuses.” A big sigh from my “friend.” “Truth is, I’m not used to being the bad guy. Usually I’m the one cleaning up my brother’s messes.”
“Lucky me.”
