Confession: I read this book after ONLY seeing the cover. I didn’t even read the synopsis. Free on KU and a Mind-Blowing cover – score. Well, also because it was written  by Staci Hart. Hart is a talented writer, with a unique style of writing that is both captivating and creative. If you are looking for your next Contemporary Romance, look no further than WITH A TWIST.

The book actually starts with Lily the heroine, panting over another man. A man that kind of messes up her world. This bad romance sends her into the arms of her friend-zone neighbor, man-bun sporting, West. So, basically you have a ballerina and a hipster and the quirkiness that ensues is just epic. I didn’t think I would love this book this much, but I did. Hart has a way with creating characters, even when you think you might not like them – well you like them. Considering these are people that I wouldn’t even talk to at a party – well it shows the talent there.

A must read.


For fans of hip Contemporary Romances, go no further.

Love is somewhere near the bottom of Lily Thomas’ list of life goals, right next to competitive eating and underwater cave diving. She’s spent six years pirouetting and pliéing her way up the ranks of the New York Ballet with her eye on the prize and love in the back seat. But now that Blane Baker -- Lily’s long time crush -- is finally single, she’ll throw her rules out the window without thinking twice.

Reality with Blane isn’t as epic as the fantasy she imagined, and the truth sends her spinning straight into the arms of the man she never knew she’d always wanted.

West Williams has been friends with Lily since the day she moved into their building and he saved her armoire from a swift, sudden death by staircase. Their friendship has always been easy, the boundaries clearly defined. With neither of them willing to risk their relationship, they’ve drifted happily through the years as companions, never considering more.

That is, until they do. And that realization changes everything.
