Excerpt

Stepping into the warm water with her, I need her like I need my next breath. I snake my arms around her and pull her to me. I can’t stop the groan that comes out when her wet skin hits mine. I’m a guy; I know all about showers. However, a shower with Liane is beyond my wildest fantasies. Our tongues come together as I step us backwards and press her gently into the wall, hoping it’s not cold. She doesn’t make a sound, so she either doesn’t care or it’s warm enough. I smooth her wet hair away from her face as I deepen our kiss, tilting my head so I can tell her everything I want with my mouth. She moans, her hands finding me and making my eyes roll in my head. Yeah, this entire night is going to be what saves me for the next few months, thinking about all of this right here. I slow down our kiss and pull away, putting my lips at her ears. “Wanna race?” I tease. I love playing with her; it’s one of my favorite things to do. “Race?” She looks at me, a gleam in her eye. “We’re starting a new kind of race?” Her hands are still caressing me, and I can barely form words at the sensation. “Yeah,” I mutter, putting my hands over hers so she will stop for a second. “We’ve raced our whole lives, right? It’s part of who we are. So why not have a race now?” “What are we racing to?” She looks me up and down, her eyes stopping at the evidence of my desire for her. I lean over and whisper in her ear, and she giggles, looking up at me with wide eyes. “Really? And what does the winner—or loser—get?” I wink at her. “The winner gets to pick the next location.” She gets exactly what I mean, and I see the competitive gleam come into her eye. “Well, let the best man—or in this case, woman—win,” she says. All I know is, I’m not losing because I already have the grand prize. Her.

OMG, LL Collins has done it again!!!! I just devoured Twisted Souls as fast as I could and I am dying to get my hands on Twisted Paths to see where things will go!!!!

Liane and Blake have been best friends since they were 5 years old. Their family has always traveled and met up with each other every summer and their mothers always wondered if they would marry and be a couple. For Blake, he knew Lia was more than a friend but would he get the courage to tell her before its to late? And if so, how would Lia react? The first time he decided to tell her things didn't go according to plan so would he get the courage to try again?? But this time around its not so simple bc Lia is no longer single......or is she??

OMG, LL had me on the edge of my seat for a long while!! My heart broke for Blake and Lia for a while but then it all started to work out and then all of a sudden...BAM!! Someone of course had to go and start causing problems. That ending, holy crap, please tell me something is different. I feel like there is more to the story but should I hold out for hope?? My fingers are def crossed!!!

It's now 330am in the morning and I have book 2 waiting on my kindle but I know if I start there will be no stopping!! All I need is just a few hours of sleep and then I will completely devour the rest of this series!!! LL Collins, you are one amazing writer and I just cannot get enough of your books!!! Trust me when I say, if you have not read any of her books yet.....you are TRULY missing out!!!! I highly recommend one clicking NOW!!!! <3

Synopsis

Life is a series of choices, and every one we make sends us down a different path… It is easy to look back at your life and see the mistakes you’ve made and wonder how it all could’ve been different. But when the path you thought would last forever comes to an end and you have to choose a new one, do you follow the route that looks the straightest and easiest? Or do you follow your heart and choose the one that might have more twists and turns but could lead you to the happiest tomorrows? Twisted Paths is not a standalone. This is meant to be read after book one in the Twisted series, Twisted Souls.
Couple Holding Hands

Excerpt

The first thing I notice is that the man is seriously beautiful. His body is cut and sculpted like he spends hours a day in the gym, and even in the dim light from the pool deck, I can tell he’s tan. His board shorts hang low on his hips, and the defined cuts of muscle on his chest and abs is enough to send women running to him and dropping at his feet. Had I been a single woman, he would definitely be my type. My eyes lift past his impeccable body to the face and head that’s attached, and that’s when my heart completely stops. I must’ve gasped out loud, because I feel Mia turn and look at me as he gets closer. I feel my mouth drop open as his eyes meet mine for the first time in years. “Blake.” He stops in his tracks, both of us staring at each other for what seems like every moment of the time we have been apart. I can’t believe he’s standing here, and had it not been for Mia standing next to me, I might’ve thought I was dreaming.

SEE!!!! GAHHHH OMG, LL Collins, you have done it again!!! I just knew it!!! I knew there had to be more to the story and HOLY MOLY did you just completely blow me away!!! My heart broke for Blake and Liane even more with this book than I thought possible. My emotions were all over the place, talk about putting me thru the ringer!!! This story takes place 18 years after book one ends. Think you have yourself prepared for what LL has in store for you??? Trust me, you better think again. Grab on, hold on tight and be ready for a lot of OMG, are you freaking kidding me?!?!?! Think you hated Ronan before?? HA!!!!! LL Collins is the absolute BEST!!!! By the time this book is done and over you will be smiling from ear to ear ready to start over from the beginning and read it all over again!!

Carter.....He is all grown up and now 18. That snippet at the end with him has me dying for more!! I want to know more of his story. How does he feel about everything that happened and went down?? O I can't wait!!! Amazing job LL!! You know I love you more than words can say. If you wrote it, trust me, I want to read it!!!!
