Life outside of her house was a new experience for Della Sloane. The dark secrets of her past weren’t something she ever intended to share with anyone. They would never understand. No one would ever get close enough to find out. There was always a chance she’d go crazy sooner than they expected…
Woods Kerrington had never been one to be attracted to fragile females. They seemed like too much work. He wasn’t in it for the work just the pleasure. A night full of naughty fun had been exactly what was on his mind when he’d laid eyes on the hot little number that didn’t know how to pump gas and needed some help.
What he didn’t know was she was as fragile as they came.
The carefree girl who spoke her mind and didn’t care what the world thought of her was more breakable than he could ever imagine…
I was really looking forward to Twisted Perfection for some reason. Woods has been some sort of a fixture in the serie so far but we don’t really know him. We know he’s a good guy though, judging by how he treated Blaire in the beginning of the Too Far serie. So I was curious to know what would happen to him. Which girl was going to rock his world for good?
“That’s all I need. Just you. We’re gonna find a life together. A new one. Our life. One we get to create.”
I really liked how the story started out. The whole one night-stand thing is usually not something that sticks with me but this one did.
For Woods, this night with Della is like his last night as a free man. He is pressured by his family to marry a woman he doesn’t love and can barely stand in order to get what should be righteously his.
For Della, this night with Woods is a way for her to live life, make mistakes and feel. Her childhood was horrible in so many level it’s a miracle she isn’t a complete lunatic. Now she’s on a mission to live and experience everything life has to offer. And one of those experiences is Woods.
“I can’t imagine this world without her in it. I don’t even want to.”
I won’t say to much about how they meet again and how things get from there because there wouldn’t be a point in reading this book otherwise. But their story is far from easy. Della has to deal with insecurities and she basically tries to avoid strings because of those, thanks to Mommy dearest.
Woods struggles between bending to his father’s will and basically let his family control his life and deciding to throw everything he’s worked for away and be free to live life as he sees fit.
“One day your drive to make a name for yourself will begin to drift away. It won’t be that important anymore.”
The chemistry between Woods and Della is off the charts! From their first night together to the moment the find their way back to each other, their encounters are crazy hot and one of the things that drive me crazy in a very good way with Abbi Glines’ male characters is that they seem to have a degree in dirty talk! I swear they must get some sort of training or something because them talking dirty is almost as good as the description of their cavorting. If you’ve read other books by Mrs. Glines, then you know what I’m talking about here and this book is no exception. It is HOT!
“Don’t miss out on the love of a good woman, son. No matter what that old man of yours tells you, love is real.”
I liked Woods character a lot in Twisted Perfection. I thought he was very courageous and even though he screwed up a little bit here and there, his heart was in the right place and you know he’s confused between what he wants and what he needs. The sacrifice he has to make isn’t easy for him especially when it means it would completely change his life.
Della’s character was endearing but you see that she is broken and she needs to find a way to fix herself. I liked that it didn’t take just one book for her to get better. It wouldn’t have been realistic at all. She has a long road to travel before she learns to deal with her issues.
“The only things we have to fear itself,” by Franklin D. Roosevelt
This book deals with some dark issues such as abuse and mental illness, but also some things that are more relatable for most readers such as family’s expectations, and sacrifice.
“You are mine. Do you hear me? You are mine, Della Sloane. I will take care of you. Nothing is taking you away from me. Nothing.”
You’ll have plenty of characters to hate in this book too, namely Angelica and Woods’ father. The story took a little more speed toward the end due to those annoying characters and the book closes on a cliffhanger that will bring a lot of change in the life of our two characters. Della and Woods still have a lot to go through and what happens in Twisted Perfection is only the beginning for them.
I’m off to read Simple Perfection now to get the rest of Woods and Della’s story!
