I’m Kaitlyn.

In my life, rarely are there dull moments. I seem to land myself in these…situations a lot. I am 25, and in college (yes, still!). I have just met the most gorgeous guy, Cole, in my math class. The only problem is that he is a little guarded. Just when I start to make progress with him, my crazy elderly neighbor Marge disappears after visiting some

Sandra Shipman ~ Two Book Pushers
I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of Twisted Luck and also to know Julie Solorio. She is so funny, smart and just over all awesome so I knew I would be going on an adventure while reading her first book and I was 100% correct.

Kaityln is a shy twenty-five year old college student that has a slight crush on Cole, a guy that does not lack attention from other women on campus. She doesn't know that much about him really but when they do talk in math class they are friendly. There have been times

If you like a book full of quirky characters and full belly laughs as well as a bit of mystery than Twisted Luck is the book for you. This fantastic debut novel by author Julie Solorio was absolutely adorable.

Kaitlyn is your average 25 year old making her way through college. Studying, spending time with her BFF and roommate Hailey and crushing on her cutie classmate Cole, everything is going great for her. That is, until Marge happened....... Marge is the older woman who lives in the apartment

Kaitlyn is a 25 year old college student. She is a little removed from college life since she is an older student. She lives with her best friend Hailey, and has the hots for Cole, a fellow student and study group member from her math class. Her downstairs neighbor is an elderly woman named Marge who Kaitlyn and Hailey have grown close to as they help her navigate modern electronics and other things. It seems that Cole and Hailey are finally going to start spending some real time together when ...more

What a great story.
Witty characters, quirky banter and just enough suspense to make it all pull together.
I had to opportunity to beta read this, and I am honored to say I am very proud of Julie for what she has done with her story.
This story is full of Twisted Luck!
Congrats Julie <3

Sometimes I keep myself in a little box in my obsessive love of the types of books I read. Twisted Luck is outside my box and I absolutely loved it. I laughed out loud while reading and sent excerpts as texts to friends to show them how funny something in the book was. I definitely recommend this book and I am sure you will love the dynamic of this group of characters.

I love Kaitlyn!! She is ridiculous and has a tendency to land herself in socially awkward land mines. Not only is this hilarious

If you're looking for a funny, sweet book with an adventure this is your kind of book!! The writing is great, the story has a little bit of everything: romance, humor, suspense, steam and hot guys! Kaitlyn is a college student who lives with her best friend Hailey and has a major crush on Cole. They have an older neighbor that gets herself into some trouble and it's road trip time! I laughed outloud more than a few times! Cole is hot and Kaitlyn is effing hilarious (she reminds me of one of my ...more

Twisted Luck by Julie Solorio is a quirky tale of two crazy roommates and their crazy old lady neighbor. It took me a little while to get into this novel but I was fully hooked by about 40% in and that first 40% was still entertaining. The pop culture references are a favorite of mine. If the author mentions things in a book that I am also into it makes the book more personal, you know?

Kaitlyn and Hailey are a funny pair of best friends that may have just met their match in Cole and Matt. If you

I am really glad that I read this book. I loved the characters from the very beginning. I am not going to lie. So much of what Kaitlyn thought is stuff that goes through my head. I mean she is ridiculous and hilarious. I mean she is even allergic to tomatoes like I am (and it would be my like to finally get the date and have to go to the hospital). I really like Cole. He was super sweet and you have to love that he cares so much about family. I really like that the characters all had a little

I was given a copy of this book for an honest review

This is a cute, funny, quirky book! I believe what or who pulls it all together is Marge. She is this firecracker old lady that lives next door to Kaitlyn and Hailey.

The girls look at Marge as a grandmother type. So when Marge ends up missing the girls find it their mission to help find her. Kaitlyn gets some help from Cole a man in one of her classes, with whom she is totally crushing on and Matt (Marges grandson) comes to town to help

I received this book for an honest review. I have to absolutely say that this was a fun book to read. You will fall in love with the characters quickly. First you have Kaitlyn and Hailey who are best friends and roommates with their quirky neighbor Marge who is an older lady who has kind of adopted the girls. Marge is a laugh riot with her little escapades.

Kaitlyn is in college and meets Cole in her math class and starts crushing on him hard. Hailey (also in college) is falling for Matt who is

I LOVED this book, it was so refreshing! This book was laugh out loud funny yet suspenseful all at once. The characters were very likeable (well, except the one we were meant to hate!)and had you really rooting for them. I loved the friendships portrayed and the hot chemistry too! I am kinda glad that I don't have a Marge figure in my life but boy was she hilarious!! I can't wait for book 2 now!

4 stars Twisted Luck
I enjoyed this. I cant tell you how many times I laughed out loud. I enjoyed the characters, they were quirky and this story had some mystery to it.

Kaitlyn is a 25 year old college student. She spends her time hanging with her best friend & her roommate Hailey, studying and secretly crushing on her classmate Cole.
Cole is appreciated by most women on campus, he is a hottie. They share a math class together and with Kaitlyn being shy, she gets flustered easily around him

3.5

Libro divertido y rápido de leer. La historia es entretenida y a ratos misteriosa. Pero, no me gustó la forma en que la escritora llevó la historia, a veces omitió mucho diálogo lo que debilitó las relaciones que se generaron en la trama.

Twisted Luck was funny, cute and quirky with some added suspense. You can't help but fall in love with Kaitlyn and her friends (especially Marge). Definitely look forward to book 2.

I got in to following book blogs for recommendations and found Love Between The Sheets. They were looking for reviewers so I applied and I've been writing for those wonderful ladies since.
