Natalie Bocuse is a beautiful and chic French woman in America who dreams of managing a sophisticated restaurant. For now, she is working at her sister’s bistro but continues to dream of a faster life in a faster area than Brooklyn.

Quinn O’Brien knows all about fast-paced environments. Working at the Sentinel as the ace reporter who seems to get all the good stories, he feels as if he is on top of the world. When he hears about the argumentative but attractive French waitress looking for something a little livelier, he offers to get her a job at his parents’ pub in Manhattan.

Soon Natalie is seeing Quinn every night at the pub, and he is getting under her skin. He knows he should make a play for her, but he is afraid she is way out of his league until the new editor-in-chief makes a play for her, then the gloves come off. Now he is trying to juggle a full-time girlfriend with a full-time job, while at the same time a new story begins to affect his close friends in some very deadly and dangerous ways.

With a Twist is a spectacular read that combines two different series together and yet can be read as a standalone. The New York Blades fans of Ms. Martin will be happy to know there are returning characters that help Natalie with her love life. For those who had a chance to read the first story in The Wild Hart Saga, the Irish characters are back with some funny moments as well as some tender ones. The main reason I fell so in love with this story was because even though this is a romance, the two main characters have some hard obstacles that need to be jumped, making this a very realistic but wonderful tale to read. With a HEA destined to bring a smile to your face, it will still have you grasping to get your hands on the next book in this magnificent saga, and I for one will be looking forward to what will happen next with the O’Brien clan!
