“You’re beautiful, Georgiana. I can’t believe you even looked my way. I’m the lucky one, and I promise to carry the title with pride. You’re mine to protect, to watch over, and I promise to make sure no one gets in your way.”I melt right there on the spot, my stomach fluttering with a million butterflies. How did I get so lucky? How did he look past my walls and see what he sees?“You’re an amazing man, Racer.” And I’m so glad you’re mine.
Mention the name "Meghan Quinn" and the first thing that pops into my head is "rom-com with a dash of angst". I've read and loved Meghan Quinn's work in the past and her unique brand of rom-com is exactly the way I like it because I happen to be a self-confessed angst addict (the fictional kind, of course, because who the heck wants to real life kind?!), the stuff she's written--and that I've read, since I haven't read ALL her books yet but I'm working on that!--has been right up my alley. With her latest release, Twisted Twosome, she once again gives her countless fans and readers a book boyfriend-worthy guy and a girl who's more than worthy to receive her happily-ever-after.
If you've read My Best Friend's Ex, then twenty-six-year-old Racer McKay should be familiar to you, having been introduced as one of Tucker Jameson's closest friends and co-workers. When we meet him again, we quickly learn of Racer's financial woes. He needs every bit of the money he earns in construction and his thong-wearing handyman side gig in order to keep paying off debts and bills his beloved late father left him and still keep his ever loosening grip on the one thing that his dad left him--their home. Working for Georgiana Westbrook would mean extra income, but he's already been gypped by her father before, and Racer isn't looking for another round of that.
You would think that living a life of privilege would be the sort of thing all people wish for, but Georgiana doesn't want to walk down the path her father thinks she should. At twenty-six, she wants to blaze her own trail and she isn't afraid to work hard for it. That doesn't mean, however, that there aren't people who don't look at her and see nothing more than some pampered princess who wants for nothing. Like Racer McKay, who looks at her with thinly veiled disdain, no thanks to something her father did to him. But whether they like each other or not doesn't matter. She just needs him to work for her for a period of time. Keep it professional...even if all her fantasizing isn't.
This was an enemies-to-lovers romance that had two people who made certain assumptions about one another and only realized how wrong those assumptions were as they got to know each other better. I adored Racer and Georgie. These two just made sense, because even when they were busy bickering and bitching, that underlying attraction was difficult to deny, and when they FINALLY got together, it was hot, hot, hot! With these two getting to their happy ending, I'm wondering who in their gang of quirky friends is up next because there are at least three more I wouldn't mind reading about. Hint, hint! And if it's as terrific as Twisted Twosome, win-win! Five-plus stars. ♥
