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…

Woods Kerrington had never been one to be attracted to fragile females. They seemed like too much work. He wasn’t in it for the work just the pleasure. A night full of naughty fun had been exactly what was on his mind when he’d laid eyes on the hot little number that didn’t know how to pump gas and needed some help.

What he didn’t know was she was as fragile as they came.
The carefree girl who spoke her mind and didn’t care what the world thought of her was more breakable than he could ever imagine…

The Review: “Is she forever for you then? She's worth throwing it all away?" "She's it. No one else. She's all I'm ever going to want.” -Woods and Grant

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 were once again fulfilled with Twisted Perfection  It's such a wonderful story. I was so excited to read about Woods and Della, two very different people, from different worlds, who meet, fall in love and change each other for the better. As always with Abbi I simply get sucked in from page one, this wasn't any different. I couldn't put this book down and I just kept needing more and more. 

The story was perfectly paced for what needed to be told. The chemistry between Woods and Della is palpable, and you just feel it. This is the thing that I've found with Abbi's books Twisted Perfection included you FEEL everything! You do, you just feel it. Abbi has a way of telling her stories, and it comes out in her writing and it's just wonderful. (This is a gushing review, I'm sorry).

There were just so many great moments to be had, and I'm so in love with Woods that I honestly didn't know I could love him more than I thought I already did. He's pretty much an Alpha male like more of Abbi's boys are, and he's so fiercely protective of Della, but not in the sadistic way. His and Della's relationship was pretty well thought out, starting from a one night stand, to eventually a chance meeting 4 months on and then eventually falling deeper and deeper in love. It wasn't a slow progression but it wasn't instant either which is great because it totally worked.

Just going to touch on the ending a little. It was actually pretty perfect, it wasn't an ending I was expecting so it came as a little bit of 'whoa' moment for me; but it was a good ending, most may think it's a cliffhanger, I thought it was to begin with, but on a re-think and having met Abbi personally it's not a cliffhanger it's a nice pause to introduce the 2nd part of their story coming in late Autumn. It'll take you back, but it's worth it.

I can't really fault anything in Twisted Perfection, I honestly can't, and I don't know if that's because I'm biased because I'm in love with Abbi (such a girl crush) or because there just because I get so enthralled in the story that I completely miss anything off key, I don't know. What I do know is, that Twisted Perfection was a fabulous read, one that I will re-read over and again. I can never get enough of Abbi and her books filled with bad boys and intense passion with hot monkey sex, that I plan to read everything she writes. So if you basically haven't read her Too Far series yet, you should I think pick that up and it's sequel and then read Twisted Perfection. I promise you won't regret it. I anxiously (impatiently) await Woods and Della's sequel Simple Perfection. I. Can't. Wait!

“I loved her. I loved her with a something so fierce I couldn't even name it.” -Woods

“You are mine. Do you hear me? You are mine, Della Sloane. I will take care of you. Nothing is taking you away from me. Nothing.”-Woods

“If I had a life with Woods to look forward to I knew I could fight whatever darkness that tried to take me. Before Woods, I didn’t know what I was living for. In my search to find myself, Id found so much more. I knew now why I wanted to live. I understood love. I had found it.”-Della

Abbi now lives in the quaint southern town of Fairhope, Alabama with her three children and husband Keith (the high school sweetheart she chased after). Her life is never dull and Keith always makes sure there is another “experience” for them to explore.

When Abbi isn’t locked away in her office typing away she is hauling her kids to and from their many social activities. You could say her second job is the Glines Kids personal chauffeur. It’s a rather illustrious job.
