~ Does not contain a cliffhanger, ends with a happily ever after and can be read as a stand alone ~
What’s a girl to do when the one person she’s been forewarned about is the only one that her heart desires?
Leah Valdez is a sassy, intelligent, hard-working woman whose beauty shines from both inside and out. Friends and family have always come first, but it's time for her to start thinking about her own future.
Stefen Hunter is a rich, charming, sexy playboy. With seemingly no effort on his part, countless women flock to him. That is, until he meets Leah. He can’t understand why it’s so difficult to win her over or what it is about her that intrigues him so much.
When an unfortunate event intertwines their lives, Leah finds herself in a war between her thoughts and desires. To forgive, and ultimately trust, Stefen, she will have to put her heart on the line. After what he’s put her through, she’s not sure she’s willing to do that.
As compassion meets resistance, will Stefen be able to step out of his comfort zone and accept that he can become the redeemed man worthy of Leah’s love? Is Stefen and Leah’s connection strong enough to withstand An Exceptional Twist?
**This novel includes mature language and adult situations, but there are no detailed sex scenes**
I know that I repeat myself when it comes to this author Kimi Flores, if you read her stories you would understand my feelings for her writing. I find Kimi's writing in the Intertwined Hearts series so revitalizing for my mind and soul. After reading some dark erotic thrillers, romance suspense or murder mystery's, it just feels good to come back to characters that feel more like friends that I want to get to know more about. An Exceptional Twist had me feeling like a school girl, all giddy and head over heels for Stefen Hunter. His charm and humor had me blinded of his love for the ladies, I just wanted to know more about him.
Leah Valdez, a sexy flower shop owner with a heart to big for her own good. She is so fiesty and when the " lantina " comes out in her, it is hilarious. When Leah and Stefen get together their chemistry is so strong that I cannot keep a smile off my face. This is where Kimi Flores's writing is felt. For example, you know that there is going to be a intimate scene but because of the emotional details and ambience that are perfectly written, I did not need those detailed sex scenes to paint the picture.
Anyway, getting back to An Exceptional Twist. If Stefen can get over his fear of commitment and believe himself worthy of true love and if Leah can forget her previous heartbreak and give up some control of her life, they might just stop playing games and see whats right in front of them. I am just so in love with all the characters in this series and I love that they intertwine in each book.
Don't Forget to read Kimi's other books before Grafted Vines comes out
About The Author:
Kimi grew up in the San Gabriel Valley (mostly Alhambra) and still lives in Southern California. She's been married to her high-school sweetheart and prom date for 21 years and they have two hilarious boys. When she's not reading or writing, Kimi spends her time in the kitchen trying to come up with vegan meals that don't taste like cardboard. Her family might disagree with this however. Although she doesn't loyally follow or have favorite teams/athletes, Kimi loves a good hockey game or motorcross/x-treme sports event. Volunteering is extremely important to her and she and her family work with several local non-profit organizations. A portion of her sales will always go to charity. She's planning on publishing the last two books in this series by the end of the year. Book 3, Grafted Vines, is Dani & Zachary's story and book 4, Tangled Paths, is Bri & Josh's journey. And because every character has a story to tell, there's a possibility of a novella about Stefen and Bri's mother's life. There's a reason she acts the way she does and she may bug Kimi enough to have it written out.
