Shy's Review ~ Twisted Mind by Mia Hoddell

Twisted Mind (Chequered Flag, #2)Twisted Mind by Mia Hoddell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was one heck of a book 2. And this author is quickly proving herself to be one heck of a story teller. All of the emotions and character dynamics that were shown in book 1 were brought into this story with two more people to get to know and love.

In the very beginning of the story Dustin is given news that completely rocks his world on its axis. He shuts down and has no desire to let anyone near him physically or emotionally. Right in the midst of his emotional upheaval he literally runs into Tazia. And while he has no more desire to let her in then he does anyone else in his life, he finds that it can't be helped because she won't take no for an answer. But Tazia is also running from her own demons. And she is equally determined to not share her burden with anyone, least of all Dustin for fear that she will lose the connection they are just starting to form.

This story was full of so much emotion and heartbreak and yet was also filled with so much strength and determination to persevere. These two broken characters went through some pretty devastating experiences. And yet their journey through it all is so well written that it made for a fantastic story. I knew I loved Dustin from how supportive and wonderful he was in the first book when helping his best friend, but I fell in love with him right along with Tazia in this one. And in Tazia, Dustin not only met his match, but met someone finally deserving of him. But it's really how they get to their realizations that makes everything worth while.

This book was just so good that I can't imagine how Mia Hoddell will match it, let alone try to top it in book 3. But I do know I can't wait to see her try.

Excerpt Reveal ~ Riddick by Kathy Coopmans

You realize we’ve never been on a date?”  He smirks at me, and my stomach flutters. Riddick is right, we haven’t. We couldn’t go out in public when we were younger since we were forbidden. And now we can; we can do anything we want. Go anywhere. Simply just be. It’s as if time has frozen for one split second. A conversation similar to this one pops into my mind. He said the same thing to me once. How he wished we could go out, be seen. Tell the entire town that in spite of the rumors of his father killing my parents, we were two teenagers in love; and if we could overcome it, then they as adults should as well. We were never given that chance.

Taylor Grant thinks she has life all figured out. But when her longtime boyfriend says goodbye via a few scribbled words on the back of coffeehouse napkins, she begins to doubt everything she ever knew about love and relationships.
