Olivia Twist

Olivia Brownlow is no damsel in distress. Born in a workhouse and raised as a boy among thieving London street gangs, she is as tough and cunning as they come. When she is taken in by her uncle after a caper gone wrong, her life goes from fighting and stealing on the streets to lavish dinners and soirees as a debutante in high society. But she cant seem to escape her past or forget the teeming slums where children just like her still scrabble to survive.Jack MacCarron rose from his place in Londons East End to become the adopted nephew of a society matron. Little does society know that MacCarron is a false name for a boy once known among London gangs as the Artful Dodger, and that he and his aunt are robbing them blind every chance they get. When Jack encounters Olivia Brownlow in places he least expects, his curiosity is piqued. Why is a society girl helping a bunch of homeless orphan thieves? Even more intriguing, why does she remind him so much of someone he once knew?

Olivia Twist Reviews

  • Jessi ♡

    i was not expecting feeling everything i felt while reading this book. the romance in this book grabbed me full-on. it sincerely takes a lot these days for a heterosexual romance to still have that spark that doesn't feel like they're forced together just because they're man and woman. most importantly, the characters!! by themselves!! they were characters that you root for, that you care for, that you're invested in. their backgrounds and their hard stories made you sympathize without trivializ ...more

    At some point I will hopefully be capable of writing a coherent, albeit gushing, review. Right now, all I can say is I adore every little thing about this book and just picture that emoji with the heart eyes...that's me right now.

    Heart eyes!! Some delicious kisses inside these pages! Oh, Jack, you handsome rogue. *happy sigh*

    I spent the first 80ish pages unsure if I was going to like this book. I spent the next part totally smitten with this whole story. And the last 20% both in shock and in awe of such a beautifully tragic yet sweet story. I’m so sad yet so so so happy. Isn’t that the way life tends to be? We can’t take out the bad but we can watch good come from it. Love this book so much and glad I didn’t quit early on!

    That was so beautiful...

    I am such a fan of Oliver Twist in all its incarnations. I loved the book, the film, the play, and I always want some more. I was very interested in seeing Langdon put her spin on this story, and I must say, I was very pleased with the results.

    •Pro: I was delighted that Langdon did not try to rewrite the original story, but rather, took us to a point after the end of Oliver Twist. We get small peeks into the past, which will seem familiar to anyone acquainted with the original story, and even ge

    Love? The word smashed into his chest like a cannon ball. Who was he kidding? Every street kid knew love was nothing but a myth. But to have her by his side - to know she was his - would be enough.


    Overall: A new take on a old favorite, that kept me flipping the pages with its mystery and suspense, but mostly with its romance.

    How disappointing.

    I've never actually read Oliver Twist (I know, I call myself a theater nerd and a lover of the classics, but I still have not read that one. Oh well) but I know the story vaguely and was eager to pick this one up when I saw it at the library. I loved The Lost Girl of Astor Street, another book by this same publisher--Blink--and I knew that they had a reputation for publishing clean reads. That's their trademark, actually. I figured there was nothing to worry about.

    That reputa

    "He cut her off. 'It's Grimwig, isn't it?' He shoved off the bed. 'You're saving yourself for that idiotic dolt!'"



    [They argue about the fact that Jack went to the theater with Olivia's cousin, to whom he is NOT engaged]

    "A predatory light sparked in his eyes, reminiscent of a lion with its tail twitching in the air as he stalked toward her. He backed her across the room and spoke with slow deliberation. 'Would it kill you to have a little faith in me? Just for once? To give me the benefit of the bloody doubt?'

    "Olivia stopped when her back hit the dresser. 'I--'

    "he leaned in and raced a hand on either side of her, trapping her between his arms. Her pulse accelerated in time with the warning vein pulsing in her throat.

    "'Does Grimwig kiss you until you can't stand?' He demanded.

    "Olivia didn't move, words failing her.

    "'Can he make you lose your breath?' Jack's tone softened. 'Can he?'

    "When she shook her head, all the tension left her arms and he took her chin between his fingers..."


    This doesn't exactly...sound romantic to me. It's like, Jack, honey, SHE'S ENGAGED TO SOMEONE ELSE, OKAY? And that's okay! She's known this guy her whole life...it's not like she's cheating on you. In fact, you're making her cheat on HIM with you! And it's up to her if she wants to "save herself for him," actually. This whole scene left a very bad taste in my mouth.

    Of course, her fiancé ends up being a villain (not through any fault of his own, the poor dear...he's just ignorant) and she storms out on him. Someone dies, although the fact that everyone is literally ONLY concerned about this because of what happens to our hero and heroine in the wake of it makes me feel really bad for the victim...(view spoiler)

    Besides this rather unhealthy romance (the two acknowledge almost constantly that what they're feeling is dangerous and should be restrained, but never do anything to try to stop it) there's a lot of language for what's supposed to be a clean book. Several h-words, a number of d-words, and a whole host of "bloody"s join more mild words like "blast", "blight," and "dolt." If this were a mainstream book this level of language would not affect me in the least, if I'm being quite honest...but for a publishing company explicitly advertised as CLEAN it was rather surprising.

    This is not a book I can recommend. I'm thankful I didn't buy it, and I'm disappointed--both in the author and in Blink. Because this could have been an epic story had the romance been a bit less physical (both in attraction and in execution) and had the side characters not been so utterly swept under the rug to make room FOR the romance. I'm giving it 2.5 stars, because the historical part really was executed well, and I liked the little band of orphans...but otherwise, no.

    Really enjoyed this YA romance / classic retelling.

    Wonderful characters, well-thought through plot (couldn't find any holes or far fetched ideas). The twist (no pun intended) to the Dickens story is used in a great way, there's suspense, romance, and a hat-tip to Kingsmen. :)
