I enjoyed this series!!!

Too lazy to review it but it definitely held my attention and I enjoyed the characters:)

At one point it got a little "overtop" but it's fiction so who am I to judge.

I have been begging KA for TT since I literally finished the last sentence of ST last year, knowing she was just keeping it from me I kept begging, she's tough though, wouldn't give in. Up til I played the birthday card and my status read * I think K.A Robinson should give me Twisted Ties for my birthday* this was a joke. 10 mins later I had this baby in my hands.

TT starts off pretty much where ST left off with a BIG shock thrown in..

Well, what I can say...I have mixed feelings for this book...Still on fence, I hated certain parts and loved some.

The story picks up from Book 1 whereby Jesse and Emma are separated. Emma heads Jesse's way to seek out for him after two years. Emma is now best mates with Andy.

After weeks of searching him, there was no luck until they by chance see Ally. And then drama going on.

Jesse and Emma get together after sorting that mess with Ally.

Don't want to be rude, but this series as a whole did not work for me. This book wasn't any better than the first one. The characters are not memorable and I could not connect with any of them whatsoever. I need to take the quote "Life is too short to read bad books," more serious from now on instead of holding onto the hope that the next book will be better. That is all.

I am lucky to receive an arc! And with that said, I want to punch Ally, in her lady bits, hard.

Stay tuned! Almost done!

4 stars!!

I've been waiting for this novel for...forever!!!

It was released earlier than the expected release date!! how friggin awesome is that!!!!

Why 4 stars? I wanted more from it, maybe more drama? more..complication? more push and pull? I just want MORE.

I want to kill Ally! What a bitch!! It's kind of been my M.O to read the ending first before reading the novel, and I do have a habit of searching for keywords like 'pregnant, marry, etc.' so when Ally said she's pregnant, it didn't blew me

This was so much better than I first assumed it would be! And considering I didn't read book 1, I wasn't lost or confused but I was able to get into the story rather quickly! I ended up finishing it in 4.5 hours, that's how good it was!

So let's just get this out there in the open 'Ally is just psychotic!' I mean come on I didn't read book 1 and from the get go I could see she was a few screws too short! But oh she did make an epic enemy! And she went out with a bang! Or at least I thought she di

Sigo pensando que esta segunda parte era innecesaria, el drama de Ally pudo resolverse en el primer libro. Supongo que la autora solo quería mostrar que tan loca estaba esta.

I was like desperate for this book after the ending of the first book! I couldn't believe the ending and I was desperate to find out what was going to happen next for the main characters! This book was amazing! I sort of wanted to scream at my Kindle during the first half of this book because everything was so close to falling into place like it was supposed to, and then something would come along and change it!

This book did keep me interested but it just dragged on. There were so many useless scenes and characters, like who the eff cares about Abby and Sam? In fact, why couldn't the author come up with names other than two syllable A-names? What was the point of having that dinner scene at Trish and Mark's house? Seriously, what value did that bring to the story? There was so much repetition, I mean, how many times did I have to read about Emma hanging out with Andy doing *insert mundane activity*. Oh ...more

This picks up where book one left off. Jesse has taken off to W. Virginia and Emma is in Cali. She has become fast friends with Andy. Its been two years and she has finally learned the truth. They take off in search of Jesse, but when they get to West Virginia, they find Ally already there.

Ally is such a whacked out little bitch. Psycho, stalker, crazy little shit. She's clearly out for Jesse and ready to take Emma down. For Andy and Ally being twins, there's no connection.

Wow! I could not wait to read this after Shattered Ties ended the way that it did and I just wondered what was going to happen when this book started. I did NOT expect to get what I got in reading this! I absolutely loved it but I drank a lot while reading it. LOL! This book had it all- drama, angst, passion, heartache and the token bitch that needs a punch in the throat.

What a fantastic page turner this was. It messed with my emotions so much. This is a mind blowing read that's gonna have you throwing your ereader.
I'm not gonna say much a about the story as I don't want to slip any spoilers.
Will Jesse and Emma be able to patch things up?? Get this now and find out.
I gotta mention crazy Ally. Isn't it great when you get a book that allows you to hate a character so much.

I'll certainly be looking into reading more

I didn't know what to expect in this book but I am so happy I read it. It took my while to read Shattered Ties but when I did I couldn't put it down. Then I tried to wait patiently for Twisted Ties but it turned out to be one of the longest weeks of my life. I have to say that is was worth the wait. It was a tough road for Jesse and Emma and the struggles they had to fight through were enough to make anyone want to give up but when you find a love so strong you will do everything to f

This book was packed full of emotions and actions. I am going to get right to it, that girl Ally is horrible, mean, vindictive, the biggest liar, and downright crazy. I hated what she put Emma through and I thought it was strange how things wrapped up with her. I loved when Jesse saw Emma again for the first time but only to have my heart broken by the way she reacted to him. I became so impatient with wanting him to go and talk to her and get everything straightened out, to find out about the l ...more

Emma is finding herself along with Andy on a Cross- Country move to West Virginia. Her goal is to find Jesse and let him know how sorry she is for running out on him without letting him explain what was really going on. Once Jesse left, Emma took solace in Andy and those two have formed an unbreakable bond, since Andy feels responsible since it was his sister Ally who deceived Emma into thinking that Jesse cheated on her.

4-4.5 stars. It's been 2 years since Emma and Jesse have last seen each other and now Emma is looking for him. Jesse, Emma, Ally and Andy are all together in West Virginia and the dynamics are completely skewed amongst each of them due to both lies and misperceptions. Thankfully, it doesn't take the whole book for Jesse and Emma to have their much needed confrontation and while there's plenty of drama, it's not due to Jesse or Emma. Ally takes the cake as far as crazy goes, she brings it to a wh ...more

Twisted Ties is just the all around book of everything…it has drama, deceit, lies, secrets, heart pumping sexy times, love, rage and a sweet twist at the end that you will just never see coming until it hits you.
Twisted Ties starts off where Shattered Ties left off and Emma goes back to the trailer park looking for Jesse. She runs into Andy and a friendship is forged. Emma could never get over Jesse and hanging out with Andy is an accep

First let me say I love K.A.’s writing. She has an amazing ability to draw the reader in and quickly get invested in the lives and stories of her characters.

This book picks up a month after Jesse has left California and Emma. She’s still trying to process everything that happened.

Fast forward two years. This is the last push to find Jesse. Andy has joined in the search and together they go to Morgantown, West Virginia.

What Emma finds is her worst fear. Yet things are not always what the

This is the second and final book of Emma Preston and Jesse Daniels' story. Some people leave an imprint on your heart and that's what happened with Emma and Jesse. They are both imprinted on each others' hearts and there is no one that can change that. In the first book, Shattered Ties, Emma and Andy both walk away from Jesse. They both believed the lies and situation that Ally set up. Now it is two year later and Emma cannot forget Jesse so she moves all the way across the country to go to col ...more

K.A Robinson can always send me on an emotional roller coaster with her writing. She puts so much into her characters to make them real and form that special connection with readers.

I loved Emma's and Jesse's story and I am so happy that they got their HEA. However to get to that HEA I had to wade through the emotional mess Ally caused Emma and Jesse. I am still stunned by her actions and totally believe she is a certified wacko. But without he
