Twisted Twosome by Meghan Quinn

Goodreads Summary

twisted twosomeFrom the first day I met Racer McKay, I knew our interaction was going to be incredibly brief. First impressions really do matter and unfortunately, I didn’t make a very good one.

At the time, I didn’t think much of it. I was never going to see this man again, right?

Wrong! When I’m met with the opportunity of a lifetime, there is only one man in the state of New York who can assist me. And can you guess who it is?

But what I don’t realize is he needs me just as much as I need him. I have money he’s desperate for, and he holds the key to making my dreams come true.

So, we reluctantly join forces.

Our pranks turn from sarcastic banter, to sexual tension and lust-filled glances. Bickering matches quickly morph into slow burn moments. We’re hot, we’re cold. We push and pull. I need him, I don’t want him. We’re on the verge of combusting with an agreement dangling dangerously between us. Neither one of us can afford to lose one another and yet, we’re finding it quite hard to decipher the line that rests between love and hate.

Review

I have read several Meghan Quinn books and have loved them.  I tried to read Co-Wrecker and couldn’t get into it, but I thought I’d give Twisted Twosome a try.  I’m glad I did.

Georgiana Westbrook is the youngest daughter in a wealthy family, and has a seriously misogynistic father, who believes a woman’s place is in the home, taking care of the family charities.  Georgie doesn’t share her father’s views, and decides to follow her dream of opening a bridal store.  The problem – her father is against it and plans to block her from getting finances.

Racer McKay is a handyman who has been working on the pool house at Georgie’s house.  Georgie stays outside sun bathing and checking out Ryder on a daily basis.  Her best friend McKenzie has the idea to ask Racer to help with the construction of her store, Limerence.  Racer has no time for Georgie or her “rich girl” problems, and he’s a real dick to her.  Until she offers to pay him $15k for his work.

Georgie and Racer do not get along.  They barely tolerate each other.  But they have to spend time together, and the more they spend time together, the more they realize they each other pegged wrong.

Georgie is not a rich snob, despite Racer’s views on her.  She’s a person who desperately wants to break free from her family and their really dumb, antiquated thoughts on a woman’s place.  I really struggled with the storyline around Georgie’s dad.  It’s 2017, and her dad started his company from scratch, so I have a hard time believing someone in this day and age would be so old fashioned, but hey, what do I know about rich folk?

Racer was kind of a dick for the first 50% of the book.  He’s a guy who is struggling to get by.  I get that.  It’s not Georgie’s fault that he’s in the situation he is.  He treats her like is, and it was hard to like him at first.  Georgie and Racer did pull a lot of pranks on each other that were really funny.

I really liked Georgie’s brother Abe and his wife Waverly.  They were super cool.  Racer did totally win me over in the end, and I really ended up liking him a lot.  The ending was a little predictable and annoying, but this was a fun read and I would recommend it to anyone.

Happy reading.

Man Crush Monday

Readers,

After a two month hiatus, I’m bringing back my Man Crush Monday weekly meme.  Several memes I’ve participated in have disappeared (and I miss them), so I’m bringing this one off the shelf.  I hope that you will consider doing a post and introducing others to men you’ve read (or watched) and really liked.  Thanks in advance for your participation.


Man Crush Monday is a weekly meme created by yours truly, Sheri at Read in a Flash!

The purpose of MCM is to spotlight men that are memorable and significant to you, either in print, TV or in real life.

Rules

  • Tell us who your “Man Crush” is and tell us why you like him.
  • Cut and past your post into the comments so others can see.
  • Be creative and have fun!

My Man Crush Monday for this week is Marc Watson from His Rules by Scott Hildreth.

Goodreads Summary

his rulesMy endeavors to find the right man had afforded me countless hookups, infidelity, and a handful of one-night-stands.

Then, Marc Watson stepped into my life. He was handsome, and not the kind that could be satisfied by simply taking a second look. Hell, men like him graced the covers of magazines and were the subject of every woman’s dreams. He was also intellectual and kind. The. Complete. Package.  But. He had this ridiculous rule.

To get a shot at him, I had to agree to be in a no sex relationship for thirty days. Making it thirty minutes without having sex with him would be a stretch. Thirty days would be impossible.

It was the opposite of everything I had done in the past, but he assured me if I could comply, the reward would be mind-blowing.  I’d never been one to back down from a challenge, so I took the deal.  Little did I know that doing so would change my life forever.

To get a shot with Marc Watson, Taryn has to agree to go 30 days with no sex.  She takes one look at Marc and realizes that going to be near impossible.  Marc wants a relationship without sex for 30 days to discover if the person he’s with is the right one.  The only thing it proved is Marc is the right one.  Such an amazing guy.  I had come off a few stretches of bad books when I found this one, and I could not have loved it more.  I rarely give 5 stars to books, but this one got them – and earned every one.  I loved this book and would highly recommend it.

Share your post in the comments below.  I’m always looking for new books to read, movies to watch or TV shows to binge!

Happy Monday.
