About this ebook

A new standalone in the Twisted Fox Series!


Lincoln:

I went from a penthouse to sleeping in a prison cell.

From the VP of a million-dollar empire to a felon.

All for a crime I didn’t commit.

Now that I’m free, I vow to stay out of trouble.

The only problem? She’s trouble wrapped in a bow.


Cassidy:

My type? Bad boys.

Until my bad boy boyfriend got me arrested.

I’ve moved to a new town and sworn off relationships.

Until I meet him … my Prince Charming … fresh out of prison.


Trouble and bad boys never felt so good … until it all falls apart.

Why is it so hard to put it all out there? To be the first to speak the truth - To make your heart vulnerable? This is part of a series. You can read it as a standalone - but each new release includes characters and events that occur in previous episodes making it twice the enjoyment if you read in order of release and I highly recommend the previous books Cassidy lacks a brain-to-mouth filter and I gotta be honest... It just made me love her more - Flirty- Vibrant- Honest to a fault She comes across as confident and outgoing and for the most part, she is. However, her past is haunting her present and could cost her even more than she's already sacrificed for her heart's choices. Lincoln was once the uncaring playboy who had it all - Parties, Yachts, Women, Friends... or so he thought Until law enforcement decided he was an accessory and stripped him of everything including his freedom. Two tainted souls One common bond Can they move forward together or will the echoes of their past always surround them? These two make the best BFFs!! With Cassidy's lack of filter and Lincoln's sense of humor They are perfect together! That underlying chemistry that crackles between them but doesn't quite catch was tangible for the first half of the story When it finally did spark - INFERNO! When we love someone we do what we believe is best for them - No, it isn't always the right thing for them but the heart and the head are truly two different organs In this situation, I get why Lincoln did what he did and I can say I would have done the same thing.

Lincoln Callahan is a hardened man because of his past. People set him up to "take the fall" for a crime that was not his. He has paid for those crimes and got his freedom back. Coming out was tough for him, and with nothing on his name by then. Now, he wants a simple life, a new start, and nothing to do with a certain blonde waitress at the Twisted Fox. Cassidy Lane is a fun-loving lady who was at the wrong place, at the wrong time, PLUS implicated a crime that she DID NOT do. I am not sure how I feel with her being unfortunate that no one seems to believe her innocence OR that people would think she would do such a despicable act. I enjoyed many aspects of the book, even when I initially wasn't interested in the story. Even if I want not to like the book, I couldn't. There were so many things that will get readers hooked. 1) Writing style that hooks. The POV is in the third person - ominous, and the writing style is easy and relatable. I love the witty banter and flirtatious conversations between Cassidy and Lincoln. They are hilarious together! There is also a strong connection between them that they become more open to sharing their secrets without fear or judgment. The plot's build-up is at the right momentum that will keep readers pushing on. Things did not feel "rush" or forced, even if a lot of things were happening around the main characters. 2) Memorable and well-developed characters were a big plus! The character development is well done. The flashback helped readers understand Cassidy and Lincoln better without overwhelming or negating the main plot. The character traits were realistic, and emotions were genuine. The characters' complexity grew and matured as the story progressed. Each of them learns to "take charge" and stop being taken for granted by others. All of this helps readers connect to them, given each main character's ample time to share their thoughts. Cassidy is a class of her own! She is the number one reason that I kept on reading. I am thankful I did because she is an excellent role model for everyone who has been forsaken by life and everyone. Even when she lost everything - personal and professional, she did not shut herself out or cause her to "crumble." Instead, Cassidy took another approach on her career path and started rebuilding her confidence at Anchor Ridge, away from her family and friends. A fresh start is a way to go. 3) Unexpected plot twists add to the suspense. A surprise (or two) comes around, but this time, there is danger in the mix - cover-ups and conspiracies. Coincidentally, Cassidy's ominous past intertwines with Lincoln's and comes to settle "loose-ends." Being having a hero complex, Lincoln tries his best to protect Cassidy - the point of risking his freedom again. Both main characters have to look out and stand firm together as they find their redemption, and a second chance, amidst the danger surrounding them. 4) Family is everything. I love how the book is all about family and friends who love the main characters. The love (and concern) oozes out of the pages beautifully. I felt each confession by all of the members there, and it all ran real, heartfelt, and genuine. Many supporting characters looked out for Lincoln and Cassidy that even with their unfortunate pasts, all of the other characters rallied as needed, no questions asked. Note: It is important to note that readers do not need to start from the beginning of the series to read this book. Cassidy and Lincoln's story runs jointly with the other books in the series but from different perspectives. Who knew that all the characters have so much backstory between them to fuel a whole series! In summary, I recommend Straight Up to readers who are in the trope of second chances, age-gap (not too much, if you ask me), romantic comedy, brooding alpha males, and sassy yet strong heroines. It is rare for me to connect to a book character, so I was surprised at how much I adore, like, love Cassidy! She could be any reader's no holds barred, sassy, strong-minded best friend.

Book 3 of the Twisted Fox series and it was such a great addition. Loved Lincoln and Cassidy. Was so happy to finally get their story. This was a fun friends to lovers romance that leave you with a smile on your face. Loved them together. They both have suffered thanks to others in their lives and watching them overcome their past to find their way to their HEA was so good. Ms. Ferrell has created a world that will suck you in from page one and not let you go until the very end and even then, you are not free of it. The story and the characters will have you wishing you that you were there right alongside them. Loved it and can’t wait until the next in this series.
