Tangled up in Christmas (Texas Heat, #2). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Tangled Up In Christmas (Texas Heat Book 2)

Tangled Up In Christmas by Lisa Renee Jones

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I might be a country girl from the same small town of Sweetwater, Texas, as horse wrangler Roarke Frost, the girl next door who knows him like few know him, but I didn’t know enough to save my heart.

He’s the reason why I left Sweetwater behind.

But now fate proves she loves a wicked twist and sends me back to Sweetwater to pull together a Christmas festival—and I run smack into the man again, quite literally. His body is pressed to mine, his hands on my arms, and I’m melting like chocolate in the sizzling Texas sunshine. And I run.

I know it’s not exactly respectable, but it works, just not for long. No matter how much I try to get tangled up in Christmas, I end up tangled up in Roarke instead—and the man has me feeling the heat of our attraction and the warmth of our past friendship. He feels like Mr. Right, but history says he’s Mr. Wrong.

But if he wants a second chance, Roarke Frost is going to have to work for it. He’ll need to prove to me that this holiday is a season of new beginnings, the kind that last forever.

BLURB: Tangled up in Christmas

Great second chance story

I generally don’t like second chance romance because I like to read about the couple first meeting and their reactions to one another. What brought them together, do they instantly hate each other or are they attracted to each other, or both? However I decided to read this one because I like Lisa Renee Jones’ writing. She always has both steamy romance and a good storyline to go with it. I wasn’t disappointed here.

This was the story of Hannah and Roarke who were engaged seven years prior until Hannah got an anonymous email showing a fashion model hanging all over Roarke. She couldn’t take the fact that he was cheating, when he meant everything to her and She wouldn’t forgive cheating. So she broke the engagement and moved from Texas to Los Angeles to make something of herself far away from Roarke and the heartache.

Hannah worked with a high fashion photographer and he ended up getting unfairly blacklisted as part of the “Me Too” movement. So Hannah moved back to Texas to start her own event planning business. She rented an office from a friend of hers, Linda a photographer in Dallas and when Linda got injured Hannah offered to take the photography appointment that night.

Hannah goes to an event where she reconnects with an old friend, Jason from the small town where she grew up and Roarke is involved as well. Jason’s fiancé proposes that Hannah do the planning for the event they are launching, which will be awesome for her business, but she will have to spend time with Roarke because he is one of the facilitators of the event.

Hannah and Roarke haven’t gotten over each other and they go from estranged to entangled in no time. The romance is hot, Roarke is a great guy and a hot Horse Wrangler and Veterinarian. He is a great book boyfriend. There is a mystery as to what happened between him and that model 7 years ago. The book was very good and it had animals, rockin’ grandmas and nice feeling of small town Texas.

I voluntarily reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
