Synopsis
 
What if your soul is so intertwined with someone else's that it's impossible to imagine yourself without them?
Blake McIntyre and Liane Kelly’s families have spent their vacations together on Sanibel Island their entire lives, and the two have always been the best of friends. But as they get ready to go to college, they admit that friendship isn’t enough for them anymore and spend a whirlwind two weeks daring to dream of their future together.

Can their hope of forever survive past their summer, or does fate have its own twisted plan?

Excerpt
Stepping into the warm water with her, I need her like I need my next breath. I snake my arms around her and pull her to me. I can’t stop the groan that comes out when her wet skin hits mine. I’m a guy; I know all about showers. However, a shower with Liane is beyond my wildest fantasies. Our tongues come together as I step us backwards and press her gently into the wall, hoping it’s not cold. She doesn’t make a sound, so she either doesn’t care or it’s warm enough. I smooth her wet hair away from her face as I deepen our kiss, tilting my head so I can tell her everything I want with my mouth. She moans, her hands finding me and making my eyes roll in my head. Yeah, this entire night is going to be what saves me for the next few months, thinking about all of this right here. I slow down our kiss and pull away, putting my lips at her ears. “Wanna race?” I tease. I love playing with her; it’s one of my favorite things to do. “Race?” She looks at me, a gleam in her eye. “We’re starting a new kind of race?” Her hands are still caressing me, and I can barely form words at the sensation. “Yeah,” I mutter, putting my hands over hers so she will stop for a second. “We’ve raced our whole lives, right? It’s part of who we are. So why not have a race now?” “What are we racing to?” She looks me up and down, her eyes stopping at the evidence of my desire for her. I lean over and whisper in her ear, and she giggles, looking up at me with wide eyes. “Really? And what does the winner—or loser—get?” I wink at her. “The winner gets to pick the next location.” She gets exactly what I mean, and I see the competitive gleam come into her eye. “Well, let the best man—or in this case, woman—win,” she says. All I know is, I’m not losing because I already have the grand prize. Her.

Review

This book literally left me speechless, in complete shock, and my mouth hanging open thinking what in the world just happened. After reading the first part of this book, I was so happy and I thought this book was going to play out a certain way and that’s definitely not what happened. Be prepared for a twisted ride that you will never see coming.

This book is told through two main points of view which are Blake and Liane. Blake and Liane have grown up together since they were children. At fourteen, Blake’s feelings for Li changed and he knew he wanted to be more than friends. Liane on the other hand did not want to lose Blake because he was everything to her. So for 4 years she stayed away from her and during this time she met Ronan.

When Ronan breaks up with Liane, she is completely broken but Blake is there to help her pick up the pieces. Blake was such an amazing person. I fell in love with him completely. When Liane finally realizes how much she loves Blake they plan to spend the rest of their lives together. After leaving the beach, both Blake and Liane are leaving for college but promise to always love each other and find a way to be together. This is where the story turns and fate steps in and takes this two down a road they never saw coming.

I don’t want to give away spoilers but there were moments in this book I was completely shocked. I wanted to crawl through my kindle and punch one character in the face. At the end of this book, I was literally screaming NOOOOOOO!!!! LL Collins has completely broken me down with this book and I absolutely cannot wait to see what book 2 holds! Fingers crossed going!!

Synopsis
Life is a series of choices, and every one we make sends us down a different path… It is easy to look back at your life and see the mistakes you’ve made and wonder how it all could’ve been different. But when the path you thought would last forever comes to an end and you have to choose a new one, do you follow the route that looks the straightest and easiest? Or do you follow your heart and choose the one that might have more twists and turns but could lead you to the happiest tomorrows? Twisted Paths is not a standalone. This is meant to be read after book one in the Twisted series, Twisted Souls.
Couple Holding Hands
Excerpt
The first thing I notice is that the man is seriously beautiful. His body is cut and sculpted like he spends hours a day in the gym, and even in the dim light from the pool deck, I can tell he’s tan. His board shorts hang low on his hips, and the defined cuts of muscle on his chest and abs is enough to send women running to him and dropping at his feet. Had I been a single woman, he would definitely be my type. My eyes lift past his impeccable body to the face and head that’s attached, and that’s when my heart completely stops. I must’ve gasped out loud, because I feel Mia turn and look at me as he gets closer. I feel my mouth drop open as his eyes meet mine for the first time in years. “Blake.” He stops in his tracks, both of us staring at each other for what seems like every moment of the time we have been apart. I can’t believe he’s standing here, and had it not been for Mia standing next to me, I might’ve thought I was dreaming

Review  

When I finished book 1, I HAD to go into book 2 immediately. Book 1 left me in shock so I could only hope book 2 would give me the answers I was looking for. Not only did I get answers but I got so much more. Just when you think you know something you have no idea.

It’s been years YES years since Blake and Liane have seen each other. After their worlds were torn apart, Liane married Ronan and they had their son Carter. Now Carter is going to college and Liane gets back home and finds a note that will change everything. Needing to get away from her life, Liane decided after years of staying away the beach house is just what she needs. This again is where fate steps in and brings Blake back into Liane’s life.

There were so many times in this book that I had tears running down my face. I wanted to scoop Blake and Liane up and just hold them. My heart shattered for them many times throughout this book. I HATE HATE HATE Ronan!!! No matter what he will never redeem himself for me. Finally after all these years, love finally wins. I can’t say anymore after this you will just have to read it and feel the absolute joy I felt after I finished. I am also very excited Carter is getting a book too!!! Fantastic job LL this series was amazing and will stay with me forever!
