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…

“I’ll be whatever she needs me to be. I can’t walk away from her, I tried. I’m hooked.”

Each book from Abbi Glines is more addictive than the last!

I read Twisted Perfection in one sitting and was glued to the page, unable to put it down. It was hot, steamy and sometimes a little dirty *winks*, with a fast-paced plot and lovable characters. It’s a little darker than the Too Far books, but I’d still actually consider it a relatively light read.

Twisted Perfection was again, an Abbi Glines story that I was unable to put down. It was a fun, sexy and light story that I VERY much enjoyed reading. I'd even go so far as to say that I loved it more than Rush and Blaire's story; mainly because I loved the main characters much, much more...

I will admit it... I am an Abbi Glines fan girl. She is one of my favorite YA/NA authors. Everything of hers is amazing, so I wasn’t surprised with how much I loved this... It was by far her hottest book to date! And Woods is just too hot to handle!!!!

I have been crushing on Woods since Fallen Too Far series began. I was one of a handful of readers that was cheering for Blaire to go for Mr. Country Club.

Thank you Abbi Glines for granting my wish and giving Woods Kerrington his own book!

For those of you that know me, will know that I'm probably Abbi's number one fan...amongst all her other number one fans, so when Donna said we'd be taking part in this blog tour and that I'd get to read Twisted Perfection 2 weeks before release, I did a happy dance.

I've loved all of Abbi's books, and all my expectations

“Loosing you would be the only thing that could destroy me”.

I love Abbi Glines, she is a great person! But i seem to ALWAYS rate her books 3 stars.
They are 'OK'.
I hoped Twisted Perfection would be different. No such luck.
The only exception ,i think, was Fallen Too Far and Existence

Every one of my friends LOVED this book! I thought i would too.

This book made me tingle in all the right places! Abbi Glines has a gift. She makes the story flow and come alive. She doesn't tell me, she makes me feel it. I read it with a goofy smile on my face!


Della is a broken, strong heroine. She has lived through horrors and she lives with the fear that she has inherited her mother's mental illness. She is giving, caring, beautiful and strong. She is on a road trip to learn how to live. She challenges herself and the world.

I liked this story LOTS, but I didn't quite get the 5 star feeling. Why? The short answer ~ No book butterflies this time. I've gushed about Abbi Glines before in previous reviews, and YES I'm about to do it again. This author is all about her characters, storyline and her books are like Pringles (once you pop, you just cant stop)! How she grabs me so completely with her story lines - is a mystery.

Another let down by Abbi Glines. I have to say that this book also was a disappointment, with a few shiny ups. But sadly, it bored me more often then not. I ended up DNF it sadly.

Woods has always been the character that stood out for me, bright and shiny, so I really had high hopes for this book. I´m sad to say I was let down. Especially Della was a dull and boring character, she just seemed flat to me. I felt no connection to her at all. Her story was, I´m sure, supposed to be heartbreaking but

I'm not sure about Twisted but Woods sure was Perfection....on a stick! I was looking forward to Woods' story because you just knew it would be good especially with the way Woods takes care of people and he's just so intense! AG did not disappoint.

Della was innocent and sweet...I even wanted to help her. It really was quite hard to hear everything that she went through and is still working out. I loved how much Woods took care of her. They both really fill that spot that the other needs so well

I thought I was so gonna love this book before I read it but then I ended up skipping some parts (unlike FTF I've been hanging on to everyword)..

Della is all kinds of emotionally messed up and Woods wants to fix her.. Damn he was so freaking SEXY!! Can't wait till the next book!!

Ms. Glines is my gal when I need something fun and addicting to read. I fell in love with Woods in her other series: Too Far .

Twisted Perfection has a bunch of great music in it. The song that summed up this book was sung by their friend, Jimmy; 'Wanted' by Hunter Hayes.


Rosemary Beach series is interconnected. The secondary characters from the first series become the main focus in subsequent series. Each series

Oh Woods Woods Woods. When I first met you in Fallen Too Far I just knew I was going to love you. Boy did you surpass my wildest hopes with your possesive, sexy, and dirty-talkin ways.

The story starts off with a bang...and I do mean a bang

It starts hot and doesn't let off until the very end. Abbi Glines is seriously the queen of writing one hell of a steamy love scene. Seriously Ms. Glines

But I digress

Ahhhhhhhhhhh, Woods story!!!!!! I cant believe it!!!!! I am so happy right now!!!!!!


I was so happy when I found out that there is going to be a book about Woods. I loved him in Never Too Far and Fallen Too Far. I liked him so much better than Rush already then. Now after reading his story I can only state yet again that I love him. He was a great guy who put Della first, and his protectiveness and possessiveness was definitely a turn on. Well I have to admit that I have HUGE crush on him now
Vikki ~ *squee* lite ~
I enjoyed this a whole bunch more then the Rush/Blaire saga, in a large part because Woods consistently put Delilah first. For all his talk, I didn't feel the same about Rush.

There is nothing I would change about Woods - he was hot, sweet, understanding and all around amazing. He was exactly what Delilah needed. We once again have the case of insta-lust which quickly leads to almost-but-not-quite insta love. I'm choosing to ignore that you probably shouldn't be ready to uproot your entire life

It has been a while since I read Rosemary Beach series. I remember the first 2 series, I have fond memories about it. The twist and turn and the soap opera drama reminds me of that Beverly Hills premium soap opera back when I was teeneager.

Then I guess ny taste in romance is also revolving. When I picked up Twisted Perfection, I cringed. Characters are bad. Immature, stupid and just dumb. The plot is even ridiculous. Only the steamy smut is still tolerable. And even with that, there are not muc

Woods really won me over in Never Too Far but if I am being completely honest I was a little disppointed with Twisted Perfection. I found it to be too much like the Fallen series...
