Review ♥ Twisted Twosome by Meghan Quinn

Oh, Meghan Quinn... You have become an auto-click for me. You have proven time and time again your ability to pretend to give us happy, sexy, light reads and lace it with real life issues which touch the essence of all of us.

There is no one on this planet that doesn't sometimes feel they are not in the same league as another...whether self imposed or by "society". We all, at some point, have insecurities and they show up in all sorts of ways...It can hit all types of social status... so I really feel no one is immune.

It is just how we handle these feelings and how they shape us. It could be a fleeting moment and then you move on... or it can shape how you picture yourself with having a difficult time letting it go...

Because in the grand scheme of things... we all are in the Same League...The Human Race and the Equalizer is our Love for one another.

In Twisted Twosome, it seems we are presented with a classic set up:
Rich, Beautiful, Seemingly Spoiled Woman - Daughter of Mega Wealthy Family with a Powerful Father

Handsome, Ripped, Cuttingly Sarcastic Construction/Contractor- Salt of the Earth, Calls It Like He Sees It Guy, Living Day to Day...

It could have been a sweet, sexy read with lots banter, fun times and Chemistry off the charts like Meghan Quin is known for...and been a huge winner for the reader... For Sure...

But for me.... the cherry on top of this read was the depth of feelings Quinn gave her characters.

She gave us a woman who was determined to NOT be the cliche of Daddy's and Mommy's desires... a woman who is not allowed to think for herself and just do as she is told by her family.... to never pursue a career and make something of herself outside of what her family dictated.

Instead we got a fully formed person who was trying so very hard to be her own person. She was smart, capable, focused and willing to lay it all out on the line for her business dream. It wasn't easy and she made mistakes but she becomes her own person and better for it. With the help of our fella, she also receives a mighty warrior willing to fight by her side and in the end she wins more than she ever thought possible.

As to our guy... He is everything he seems- that hot guy of all the romance stories we read... but oh, so much more...

He had a love for his father that held no bounds. He was a man of character... and pushed himself to save what he had left of his father's memories... a house they both had worked on together. Everyday when he strapped on his tool belt, he honored his dad with the quality of work he did on each project. His hands and mind were guided by all of the conversations he had with his dad...all the lessons taught...encouragements given.

These two meet at the Mega Rich house. Unfortunately, our gal and her girlfriend have been sunbathing each day our guy is there working under a timetable... and with a high heeled pump poking a hole in the air hole for the nail gun, he is now seriously behind schedule...

Meaning it is cutting into the very thin margin he had for any type of profit with this gig. This makes for a very unhappy camper as he has a huge mortgage to pay on the house...His dad became critically ill and loans were taken out. Holding onto that house is all he cares about now that his father is gone.

So naturally from the get go...these two are at each others throats... He thinks she is a lightweight, rich spoiled brat... and he infuriates her....

He has no idea of who she is and what she wants out of life... She has hopes and dreams. She has a business plan researched and then checked again for flaws... she plans to present it to her father with the hopes to convince him to release her trust fund early. That way she will be able to open her business and be on her way being who she wants to be.

A perfect set up and then some...We get a woman who is considered to just be a tool for the family image and name by her father...This woman's depth of pain and how she was able to find joy in a ritual of words is unique and a very interesting way to show our guy's insight to who she is and how he works his way into her heart...

Our guy has his own insecurities and fights them not only with this new wealthy woman but also with his circle of friends... because even though his crew has his back...he still feels at a disadvantage due to his financial burdens.

But what I love about this book is the way this man sees through so much of what he thought this woman was...He had made the standard assumptions and felt more and more like the ass those assumptions made of him...He realized how hard working and determined this woman was... how she was down to earth and nothing like her phony family... he saw what a gem she was... and that was the gift of this book...

He was a guy who didn't care... if it was the right thing to do...he would do it and his upbringing was honored by it. That is not only amazing... it is truly Sexy- and let me say... Yup, he was...

Twisted Twosome is exactly what you would think... a flirty, sexy bantering romance tale. Yet there was more for the taking... and I was happy to take it...

Meghan Quinn, keep writing and I will keep Auto-Clicking.

When I was in high school I occasionally read books but was consumed by other teenage things so I didn't take the time to appreciate a good book on a cloudy day, wrapped up in a blanket on the couch. It wasn't until I received a Kindle for Christmas one year that my world completely flipped upside down. When looking for books I came across the Contemporary Romance genre and was sold and I haven't turned back since.

You can either find my head buried in my Kindle, listening to inspiring heart ripping music or typing away on the computer twisting and turning the lives of my characters while driving my readers crazy with anticipation.

​I currently reside in beautiful Colorado Springs where the sun is always shining and there is a trail waiting to be hiked on every corner. I share a lovely and warm home with the love of my life and my five, four-legged children.
