Alexa Drake is at the top of her game. Heading up the London office for Patrick Collins Media, she’s done what it takes to get to the top and have the career and independence she’s always wanted. Her life in London is everything she’s worked hard to achieve, and she revels in her newfound control. If only she could forget the one man who brings her to her knees. Literally.
Scott Patrick is successful, commanding, and the kind of man women dream about. He’s also responsible for Alexa’s career success and her twisted view of love. Scott is a master at avoiding commitment and emotions and always thought of himself as the kind of guy who would never settle down. So why can’t he get Alexa out of his head?
When Scott suddenly turns up in London, Alexa has to decide if she can open herself up to the same man that broke her heart or if she’s ready to give someone new a chance.
Beautifully Twisted is an intense power struggle between two people who have a hard time being together but an even harder time staying apart.
Hot, Hotter, Holy burning up the pages is how I would describe this book!
Alexa Drake is strong, confident and sexy, or is she? She runs the London office at Patrick Collins Media, the way Jennifer Domenico describes the way the staff interacts with her reminded me of Sandra Bullock in The Proposal. You know where they all turn and run, IM-ing each other that she is in the office. She is commanding and seems like she is in control, however not where Scott Patrick (SP) is concerned. He is the only man to make her to go her knees, literally.
Scott Patrick is dominant, sexy, funny, and sometimes just a complete ass. He doesn’t believe in love, but if anyone is going to change that it’s Lexi. He takes Lexi as his submissive and agrees to show her how to become successful in business, what he doesn’t count on is how he will feel once it is time to let her go. He goes to London to see her, and try to win her back, but Alexa is going to do everything in her power to not allow Scotty back in her heart.
“You can act as bad as you want, Alexa. You and I both know I taught you how to fuck. I created you. You and me, we’ll never be over. You know it. I know it.”
If they didn’t have enough drama though, SP’s best friend and co-owner of their agency sets his sights on the gorgeous Lexi. Brett is the complete polar opposite of Scott in every single way! Scott is dominating and Brett is kind and gentle, and poor Alexa is caught in this game. My heart breaks for her, because as strong as she is, she is completely devistated by how Scott ended their relationship. Trust is not something she has with almost anyone, and she basically shut down all of her emotions to keep herself safe.
Alexa and Scott are both damaged, they battle quite a bit and she is often raging her own war in her head. The sexual desire to be submissive, but the fact is that in her business world she is dominant. Scott is her one weakness and has the ultimate power to break her completely. The sex and foreplay is very descriptive, and completely provocative. I personally loved the verbal sparing most.
“Poor Scotty, you just can’t stand that you don’t have as much power over me as you used to. It’s killing you, isn’t it?”
There are a lot of twists, turns and some HOLY CRAP moments. It is definitely not your typical love story, but what a story it is. I can’t wait to read more from this author.
