This is my first Sasha Brummer book. I fell in love with the depth of these characters. Liem and Isla have a past that would haunt any soul. Yet they have a love for the ones who have earned it in their hearts. A protection they deserve. The complex substories in this book blew me away. My heart already went through so many emotions- as well as the characters-yet I would look at my Kindle and only be 50% in. I love Isla’s badass attitude, toward both men and women, but yet she lets her sweet side show to very few people. I have to admit, I did not care to Liam at first, but he blew me away as the book went on. He is so much more than the a**hole he portrays himself to be. I fell so deep into this book that as reading it I realized it was book 2 in a series. I do think you have to read book 1-Blended- to get the full effect out of Intertwined. I went back and 1 click Blended and fell even more in love with that story. Then I read Intertwined again to get the full effect after reading book 1, and I did get so much more out of the storyline. My only confusion was at the end with the sister conversation Isla and Liam had. I will not say more do to spoilers, but I still have questions regarding that part of the storyline, which is why I gave this book a 4. I do hope this is not the end of this series, I am just now getting introduced to this world, and I am not ready to leave it yet!!!
