Life outside of her house was a new experience for Della Sloane. The dark secrets of her past weren’t something she ever intended to share with anyone. They would never understand. No one would ever get close enough to find out. There was always a chance she’d go crazy sooner than they expected…
Woods Kerrington had never been one to be attracted to fragile females. They seemed like too much work. He wasn’t in it for the work just the pleasure. A night full of naughty fun had been exactly what was on his mind when he’d laid eyes on the hot little number that didn’t know how to pump gas and needed some help.
What he didn’t know was she was as fragile as they came.
The carefree girl who spoke her mind and didn’t care what the world thought of her was more breakable than he could ever imagine…
"I want to be there for you when you need someone. Please don't push me away."
Let's talk about Woods Kerrington for a minute. I have loved Woods since "Fallen Too Far"and when I found out there was going to have a book about him, I was so happy. Unfortunately I couldn't buy it right away because I wasn't ready to pay the full price. It's a little bit too expensive for me but now that I have read it, I don't regret buying it at all because the story was just so, I can't find the best word to describe how awesome this book is but it was just so damn good! Woods is like a full package. You see, he's wealthy, he's a gentleman, he's good looking and he is so selfless. I just fell in love with him even more in this book. I love how he treats women so nicely, besides Angelina but I can't blame him on being such a jerk to her, honestly she's like the second Nan. Every sweet things he says to Della makes my heart melt, he's such a good man. I knew he had a great personality from what I read in the "Too Far" series but I got to know him more in Twisted Perfection and let me just say this, he is PERFECTION.
"Each word sounded like I was singing to him."
When Della sang "Just A Kiss" by Lady Antebellum, I stopped reading and played the song on Youtube and go back to reading that part. That scene is actually one of my favorite parts of the book. Even if I haven't heard Della sing, I imagined her voice and I can tell that she really is a great singer. I felt connected to Della's character from the beginning. I can't say I can relate to her but I was connected to her. The first meeting of Woods and Della actually made me laugh. Woods' reaction when Della told him he didn't know how to pump gas was just funny.
"You are my sunshine, my only sunshine. You make me happy when skies are gray."
When I read that lyric, I freaked out. I was singing it in my head but then I felt like a ghost was singing it due to the fact that Della was having a nightmare about her mom. That scared me a little bit. Della have these panic attacks every time something reminds her of her mom or her past and she has bad dreams every night. She thinks she's crazy and she will be mentally ill like her mom in the future. I really think she's just thinking that way because of how she was raised. I am so happy she has a friend like Braden. She's such a caring best friend and I really love how she helped Della discover new things and how she let her take that road trip by herself too show her how to be free and live life because that's what she needs. She loves Della even if she has big problems, she's really a true friend.
"...You have no fucking clue how unbelievably beautiful and desirable you are. You're not calculating and selfish. And you make me want to be better."
Does Woods' words make you blush? One thing is for sure, I had butterflies in my stomach whenever he says something like the line I just wrote on top. To finish off, I just want to say Hands Down to Abbi Glines' writing. I don't know how she makes a small book feel like you just read 500 pages. Every chapter was important and interesting. I didn't find a single part that was boring. She's just so good and I am so glad I read her books. There is more I have to read and I can't wait to read them all.
