I can't tell you all how SUPER STOKED I am to share the newest release from the FAB Staci Hart. WITH A TWIST was absolutely AMAZING in every way. I don't want to get ahead of myself, so... check out the post which includes some great teasers and my five flames SCORCHING review. Seriously, this one is off the charts. If you haven't ready grabbed this baby during the special presale, I can't urge you enough to GET THIS BOOK IN YOUR HANDS. I dare you not to fall for West. Heck, I double dare ya... ~Shell

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 pliĆ©ing 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.

Teaser 2

Holy stars! With a Twist was... simply beautiful, funny, sweet, and fully satisfying, with enough drama to really pack a punch. These characters stole my heart and held me willingly captive. I devoured and savored every word. This story was such a joy to read and I just can't wait for the next. West and Lily swept me off my feet. I can't stop thinking about them. Apart they are interesting, fun, and endearing. Together... they are ELECTRIC.
Those were my initial thoughts. And from there I couldn't find the words to express how much I loved WITH A TWIST. I was too blissed out.
It's been days since I finished, and still its yumminess is swirling around my brain leaving me hungover and incoherent. Each time I attempt to gather my thoughts I'm overcome with THE FEELS.
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS STORY. THIS COUPLE. This amazing group of friends.
There wasn't a moment that lagged. Not a moment that didn't pull at my heartstrings. Not one moment that didn't have me hanging on edge, tightly clutching the kindle, flying through the pages, hoping, wishing, and... *takes a deep breath* begging and pleading that West and Lily end up together. That their love was meant to be. That we would get our HEA. 
Staci does a brilliant job of keeping us on our toes (pardon the pun). While WaT has its light and romantic moments, it is not without some darkness and a lot of soul searching.
These characters are complex, their lives complicated, their relationships sometimes awkwardly intertwined. And through it all friendship, love, and honesty are the foundations that refuse to crumble and fall.
This is absolutely my favorite read of the year. I really can't recommend it enough.

About the author
Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life -- a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can't forget that. She's also been a mom; she has three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She's been a wife; even though she's certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She's also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she's been drinking whiskey. Her favorite word starts with f and ends with k.
From roots in Houston, to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she's not writing, she's sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.
