I got a free copy of Wrenched and it collected dust on my Kindle for a few weeks before I started reading. It’s the first book I’ve read from Emma James, I was really surprised how good it was. MC Romances tend to be all the same, and there weren’t many by now who captured me like this one. I love Emma’s writing style. It has that personal touch that makes it easy to think and feel what the characters think and feel.
She’s done a great job at describing Whisper’s horrible life that she had to endure for the last two decades. At some points, it was a little too much telling how insecure she felt because the same thing was written from different POVs which made the middle drag a little bit in my opinion, but the story took off again in a direction I hadn’t expected.
The storyline is something I haven’t read in another book yet which was quite refreshing. I hadn’t seen it coming that William’s lawyer would be the next villain in the story, and I loved that twist in events. Also, the sex scene on the bike was one hell of a read. I even read it twice, it was that good.
This book is very, very dark, something I tend to stay away from because there are a lot of authors who try to put the darkest and most sinister things in a book just to make it more interesting. I can imagine it’s hard to get acceptance from everyone. Emma did a great job here and made it quite realistic and believable. I haven’t bought a Book2 in a series for a long time, but I’ll definitely dive into Warped.
It’s not relevant for the story, but I also loved the interior design. The headline images were beautiful and fit each character.
