One of the wealthiest self-made men in New York needs a woman to help secure his spot at the helm of his venture firm. Problem is, Ben doesn’t want any girlfriend... He wants me.

When her best friend, the best friend she's been in love with forever, asks her for help, Daisy knows she should turn him down cuz fake relationship? For a woman who's already in unrequited love with him?!? Yeah no. But of course she can't turn her best friend down, so agrees. Now to just keep her heart from falling and getting smashed into tiny pieces when it all ends, badly cuz we all know fake relationships can only end with someone or someone

I can't believe I'm about to do this, but I think it's unavoidable. I just can't lie.
So here goes:
Twisted Love is my favorite book from the Modern Romance series.
There. I said it. Can't take it back now.

I have a (not so) secret sweet spot for friends-to-lovers romances and the fake-relationships trope is kinda my guilty pleasure. I absolutely adore Daisy, she's the most bad ass girl boss ever, a beautiful soul and a spectacular role model. And Ben... well, he had me at "collects interesting th

Best friends to lovers, fake romance, what’s not to love? Ben and Daisy, best friends, both successful in their respective careers, but in order to advance further it appears they both need to prove commitment in their personal lives, in particular in a relationship. Ok, so.....who do they turn to? Yes, you’ve got it. Each other. Everything goes smoothly, until, you’ve guessed it. Feelings and sex both get in the way, although I will say, the chemistry between them both is not something to turn ...more

Book 3 in the Modern Romance series and it was a great addition to the series. Loved this friends to lovers/fake romance. Two of my favorite tropes in one book. The chemistry and attraction between Ben and Daisy was really good. They always have date night on Friday because that is how they are close they are. Daisy has been in love with Ben for a while but because Ben slept with her sister, they couldn’t really act on anything more than just being friends. That is until, they needed to fake it ...more

I let out an audible GASP at one point while reading this, complete with hands flying to my face in shock, horror, and possibly relief. And that speaks to just how well this author gets her readers wrapped up in the story. This has combustible chemistry, sexual tension, and angst, all paired with so much shared history that you can feel the depth of the relationship. It absolutely FLEW by, and I devoured it in one sitting without meaning to.

The story follows Ben and Daisy, two friends who have g

In Piper Lawson's Twisted Love, book 3 in her Modern Romance series, Ben and Daisy, best friends for many years, has the spot light shining right down on them now!  I was absolutely dying to get the scoop on these two after seeing their undeniable chemistry in book 2, Bad Love.  Of course, curious me was left wondered what those feelings were really about behind that relationship!

This was a good read. Ben needs a girlfriend in hopes of getting him a promotion. He asks his best friend Daisy to do it. She of course agrees. However, things become real and complicated fast. Luckily in the end it all works out and they get a happy ending.

So much sexual tension between Ben and Daisy! Best friends from college, both with a secret crush on each other. Neither dare make a move because of the risk to their friendship if the feelings are not mutual.

Ben is one of the best venture capitalists in his firm and has been put forward for an award by his boss Xavier.  Ben however needs to prove to Xavier that there is more to his life than work. He needs to go to the awards with his "girlfriend".

Daisy is trying to win a contract with Richard

This book pushed and pulled at my heart and my emotions the entire read. As a reader you could feel the pull between these two and you kept hoping they could see through this and pull together. This book was a full mind body soul read. I feel the author did a great job developing the story line to perfectly capture the reader in all these feels.

This friends-to-lovers, fake relationship romance hits you with a boatload of feels and emotions. I admit to having a certain weakness for an epic tale of a love born in friendship, tested by longevity and seasoned by the richness of angst, unrequited longing and desires. Basically that right there is the situation we have between Daisy and Ben. These two stole my heart so easily and had me invested and obsessed with them. The fierce and genuine connection they shared and the absolute beauty of ...more

Best friends Daisy & Ben are always open and honest with each other…except when they’re not. Daisy has been hiding her love for Ben for years because she knows she’s not his type. Ben won’t do love with anyone, especially Daisy, because he feels guilty and thinks it messes people up. Now, in order to succeed in their professions, they need to pretend to everyone that they’re in a real bf/gf relationship…and things get “twisted”.

Although the ending is predictable, I thoroughly enjoyed reading thi

Why haven’t I read anything by Piper Lawson before (shaking fist in frustration)? As angry as I am with myself at the moment, this is something I am going to rectify asap and read everything she has written previously.
There was nothing not to love about Ben & Daisy’s story. Best friends to lovers is a trope I cannot get enough of. Every author has their own version - obviously, but there was something special about Piper’s version that really stood out above all the others I have read recently.

An excellent story for the modern age. Ben and Daisy are best friends living busy high powered lives. Daisy is focused on running her company and having a secret crush on Ben that she is hoping she will get over sometime soon. Ben has no intention of falling in love because he only sees it as destructive and only trusts his best friend Daisy. It all gets crazy when they have to pretend to date for their business interests. It leads to steamy scenes and awkward conversations. Eventually love wins ...more

This was so satisfying. I feel like I’ve been waiting forever for Ben & Daisy’s story, but I think I would have enjoyed this just as much if I was a totally new reader. The pacing was so perfect, it didn’t take forever to get into the plot of the story and it had twists but nothing tragic. Sometimes you want a book that guts you and sometimes you just want something a little bit more grounded and approaching reality. This is that book. An escape into something real and plausible with characters ...more

When it comes to romance tropes it doesn't get much better than friends to lovers and fake relationships!! Piper once again hits it out of the park with Twisted Love.

This was a quick read and low on angst. Sure there are a few secrets lurking around but that's what keeps you so invested in Ben and Daisy! Toss in some appearances from other characters in the Piperverse that you love and you have a fabulous book on your hands!

As always, I can't wait for more from Piper Lawson. She will forever b

Daisy and Ben have amazing friendship. Their chemistry is insane and the fact they have to pretend they have feelings is silly. You can just tell that they both have feelings for each. It’s crazy as to unfolds. And I wish I could have a relationship just like theirs!!! They say you should always fall for your best friend!!!

Twisted Love is the third stand-alone novel in the Modern Romance series by Piper Lawson. The series is focused on a group of friends and each book features a different one. You don't have to have read either of the previous books to understand what is going on in this one.

Reading my review for Bad Love (book #2) I saw that I was confused as to why Daisy and Ben were a couple when their story hadn't been told yet. It all made sense when a year later, I saw that it's a fake relationship romance,

I received an ARC of this book and this is my voluntarily, honest review of it.

Although ‘Twisted love’ is the third book in the ‘Modern romance’ series, the story can be perfectly read as a standalone story. But if you have read the previous two books of this series then you will be happy to know that the main characters from those two stories make an appearance in this story too.

‘Twisted love’ is a friends to lovers story, where you get both POV’s.
And it was clear from the very beginn

Written by Piper Lawson

This book is definitely a contender for my Fall Top 10 reads!

Piper Lawson brought history, humor, self doubt and a whole bunch of dirty talk to the story of Daisy and Ben.

Daisy and Ben, best friends since college, they had a bit of a rough patch but, yes they fixed that and this best friendship is going strong! They can depend on each other, they understand the pressures of work life and the relish their time together (as friends), do yo

I love a good Friends to Lovers/Fake Relationship romance. The forced proximity. The subtle (or not so subtle) shift of feelings. That first kiss that ignites sparks.

This book has all of that and a super sweet friendship that feels like the most important part. I loved the years-long relationship between these two characters. You get the feeling that they truly know each other, have seen each other at their worst, and their friendship continues. That makes their romance so much better!

That is, until Ben is forces to introduce someone as his official girlfriend and at the same time Daisy needs someone she can trust to act like her date in an event for an important cli
