REVIEW - So Twisted - Melissa Marino




TITLE - So Twisted


AUTHOR - Melissa Marino







BLURB:


"I was totally blown away!" 
—Tara Sue Me, New York Times bestselling author of the Submissive series

Sometimes it feels good to be a little bad.

Callie has found the perfect job. As nanny for a single dad and his adorable daughter, she can pay off her student loans and live in a nice house in the heart of Chicago. There's just one problem-her new boss. Definitely no dad bod here. Just six-plus feet of raw, sexual energy. Whoever heard of a dad being so hot?

From the sparkle in his daughter's eyes, Aaron can see that hiring Callie was a good decision. But Callie's breathtaking smile and long legs have him thinking about his own needs. Aaron knows it's a bad idea to get involved with the nanny, but it's been years since anyone has captivated him like Callie.

When living under the same roof proves too tempting to resist, Callie and Aaron discover a mind-blowing passion unlike anything either has experienced. But with a curious child and a nosy family in the mix, their secret, no-strings fling soon turns into a twisted, tangled knot . . .


REVIEW:


“To you your fall into love is perfect, to some it’s twisted, 5 stars”


So Twisted was the first book I have read of Melissa Marino’s and I loved it. It was the perfect amount of sweet with a little bit of taboo. So Twisted sucked me in and I couldn't put it down. 

Callie is a struggling college student. Between taking more classes than recommended and working like crazy to pay for school, shes barely functioning. Her awesome, feisty roommate Evelyn is worried about her. So when Evelyn hears of a Nanny job that would be right up Callie’s alley she does what any good roommate would do, submits Callie’s resume without asking. 
Will Callie take the job?

Aaron has been a single dad since his ex-wife up and left. The only help he has received has been from his family, but now he wants to take their advice and get a Nanny. Only what happens when the woman interviewing for the job takes your breath away? 

In So Twisted you watch Aaron and Callie fight the attraction between them, then try and learn to navigate the waters they find themselves in. Can the Nanny and the Boss separate work and play? 

Aaron is slightly older and once he decides he wants something he goes for it. 
Callie though, has never had anything or anyone stay. 
Will they figure it out? 
And how will Aaron’s family react?

I loved the characters from the main to the secondary. I loved how Abel and Callie bonded. Aaron's daughter was adorable. I could seriously see this story playing out in front of me as I read.


Here are a couple of quotes that stuck out to me;

“And it was what he wanted, too. It was in the way he kissed me. The way his hands forced me closer to him. The sounds he made, mumbled against my lips. My entire body tingled and pulsed.”

“My future. My future is in that mirror.”
