Two words- love triangle.
In her first class, on the first day of college, Chloe sits down next to Drake and her heart stops. She can’t help it, she is stunned. But then there’s Logan, the loyal, protective “best friend” that Chloe doesn’t realize is in love with her.
I couldn’t help but not like her in the beginning. She is so clueless of Logan’s affection. So many times I got frustrated that she seemed to be playing dumb about it all. Also, the first few pages are full of her twisted self-deprecation. I think the goal was to portray her as not realizing how beautiful and trendy she is, all while telling us how beautiful and trendy she is. Hmmm…there are plenty of comments like this-
“The only thing I had going for me when she was around was my D-cup breasts, which might bring me attention from time to time, but they tended to get in my way more than anything.”
So, back to love triangles…they are messy. And ultimately, she has to pick. This is when I started to like Chloe. Logan is so perfect for her on paper. He knows everything about her, including her rocky childhood and mother issues. Drake pushes her boundaries, and offers her a safe place. I really wanted her to have both, but that would’ve totally changed the genre of the book! She struggles a lot between choosing (insert angst) and makes some pretty big mistakes. *spoiler alert* she finally lets both of them go, but quickly ends up with Drake in the end. It’s not like we didn’t see it coming…
There is a surprise at the end of the book that leaves me waiting to read Twisted, book 2! And it’s already out, so it’s not like I have to wait! Yay!
My Chloe, Drake and Logan-
