(3.5 Stars) There are some books that I have a really hard time rating, and this is one of them. Sometimes it's hard to determine if things bother me because of my own beliefs or if it's something else. I'm going to get the ugly out of the way. First of all, I am not a fan of swearing--I can overlook a few of the milder words, but this one had a lot of swearing--no f-bombs, but about everything else and a lot of it. Secondly, I love a good, clean romance, and while this one stayed clean, I felt ...more

Cayden knows he's different. He hit puberty and started getting incredibly fast and strong but has no idea why. He's the quarterback on the football team so it comes in handy to be that strong. He's adopted and has one sister, Kylie, who was also adopted. Their adoptive mom left them and their father is drunk all the time and doesn't pay any attention to them so they're pretty much left on their own. His girlfriend, Dayna, is Kylie's best friend, and captain of the cheerleaders. He also has Cami ...more

Got this ebook as a free read on ibooks; therefore, I had to give this series a shot. This one is rating between 3-4 stars for me. I've placed 4 stars as its an independent author who created an original premise and interesting characters. Not sure if I'll keep going in the series but really think people should give this one a chance and decide for themselves.

Premise: KayCee created an interesting male MC named Cayden Rivers. He's cute, popular, has a cheerleader girlfriend...you know the type.

Twisted by KayCee R. is a wonderfully heart-breaking story of learning how to accept and respect every part of yourself. It is a story of learning about what makes each of us unique and cherishing those differences. We need to treat each other with authenticity, love, and encouragement. Each of us fight the same battles, so why not fight side-by-side instead of against each other? We can win when we are surrounded by the hope and courage that only our friends can provide, so let’s put down our s ...more

I wasn't sure what to expect from Twisted; the book summary sounded interesting so I decided to join a blog tour for the book. I am so glad that I did! Twisted was exciting and had me page turning from the beginning of the book. I wanted to know more about Cayden, his sister and best friend Cam. I also wanted to know why he was such a moron and decided to date such a self-absorbed girl! Wake up Cayden, even if you are a high schooler, see what is right in front of you! But even more than that I ...more

Twisted by KayCee R is the story of a teenage boy who lives with the knowledge that he's a freak. He has the ability to turn rocks to dust with his bare hands and he can run faster than the human eye can perceive. Cayden Rivers tries to lead as much of a normal life as anyone with super powers can. Sure he uses his abilities to his advantage sometimes, but he tries to remain as careful as he can because spending a lifetime being poked and prodded in a lab is not his idea of fun.

I have recently finished 4 Twisted books and wanted to write a review.
I got the books free as I went through the list on my book app in my phone. And I decided to read it.
First things first: love the story, I love the characters. I think they have great personalities. My favourite guy is Jayden, because he is different from others. Maybe it's because I like the bad boy attitude. I liked Ty because I can relate to him. He reads a lot, I read a lot. We're the same. Vince is awesome too. I love hi

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Twisted is a cute YA paranormal with a bit of mystery and a little romance. The story is told between the alternating perspectives of characters Cayden and Camilla. I enjoyed the chapters from Cayden's point of view a bit more than those from Camilla's. She's just not as essential to the story since all the mystery surrounds Cayden.

Cayden Rivers was adopted when he was an infant, and all he has from his birthparents is a penda

This book was just alright for me. It did keep my interest and the storyline was very original. I do think teens would probably love it more than I did. The writing was a little too simple I thought. I had to laugh though - this was another YA book where all the parents were conveniently gone, so the teens could get into even more trouble. I mean what fun would it be to have all the parents hanging around watching your every move. Only this time to the author's credit - she actually wrote their ...more

I liked twisted. There are quite a few surprising twists to the book and others that I guessed where it was heading.
This is aimed at YA. Most of the characters are teenagers. The only parents we hear about are very disappointed ones. I wanted to shake and yell at them. I got involved in the book. This is a clean read. Their is way too much underage drinking going on.

Cayden is adopted. His sister Kylie is just months younger than him and is adopted too. Their adopted mom could not take

I must admit that to me this book started out kind of slow. I nearly put it down as I didn't think I was going to be able to stick with it. But I did and am glad. Once it picked up I became invested in the characters a bit more.

Cayden seemed like a sweetheart, even though I think he was a little dense when it came to his love life. He did seem to mature in other ways during the course of the story though. He went from having to keep the largest part of his life a secret to being able to share

Lifting was just another word I used when I was talking about practicing with my powers, like lifting things up.

Sometimes I wonder if authors even read what they've written.

I like superpowers but these kids are really two-dimensional. Lots of things in their behaviour are really annoying. I could not connect with them at all. They are totally overboard with the dramatic statements “I thought you hated me” and ruined relationships over some really juvenile stuff. It's also beyond predictable. I

It could have been much worse than it is. It also could have been so much better.
I liked the concepts being developed within the story. However, something about the writing just didn't bode well with me.
As well, there was such a huge build up, only for things to quickly end. I'm not a fan of that. But whatever, it was still a decent read.

Started out OK but after a few pages it got predictable, saw the villain and how things are going to get down between Cam and Cayden and the rest of the gang while I was 1/4th into the book.
And come on, Cam realizing his feeling for Cam when he was dying!? Totally lame IMHO
