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…
Twisted Perfection reintroduces us to the character of Woods Kerrington, the country club heir from Abbi Glines’ Fallen Too Far series.
Woods meets Della Sloane for the first time as she tries to figure out how to pump her own gas. He finds her attractive and decides that she will be a good distraction from his pre-planned life back in his hometown. Della is all for it as she is on a mission to discover who she is and escape the life she left behind. They have dinner together which leads to a hot one night stand, starting in the back of Woods’ truck and ending up at a hotel. In the morning they go their separate ways as was the plan all along.
Four months later the two are unexpectedly reunited and their stories begin to unfold. Woods and Della both have things that they keep from each other about their past and present lives. As the story goes on they realize that maybe what they thought they wanted in life, really isn’t.
I was completely wrapped up in this story. The chapters go back and forth between Della’s POV and Woods’. You get to genuinely know each of them how the author wants you to. My heart went out to Della who was scared and lost and cared so much for a man that she thought she couldn’t (or shouldn’t) have. As Woods realizes he wants more from Della, and not just sexually, it scares them both. Della doesn’t think that she is right for him because of her past and what she believes she will one day become. I came to respect Woods as he made it his mission to protect Della and save her and to be part of her life. I’m not one for spoilers so I won’t give away too many details, you will have to read the book :) I will tell you that the book ends in a cliffhanger so be prepared to wait for Simple Perfection, coming in the Fall 2013.
This is an amazing story and I cannot wait for the continuation!!
