I was so saddened to hear about the loss of Adriana Locke’s home. She is a truly talented author and while there is never an easy time to lose a home, days before Christmas is one of the most difficult. See the Facebook post from L.J. Shen below for details, but if you’re not familiar with Locke’s work, I strongly recommend starting with Tangle. It’s one of the best books I’ve read in 2019 (and, yes, I’ll be posting a list of my favorite books at the end of the month!). I’ve included my review below as well as a link to Locke’s Amazon page to make buying a book (or two) even easier.
Check out Tangle below:
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ The chemistry and banter are perfection
Loved, loved, LOVED the off the charts chemistry and fantastic banter that began the moment our couple meets in this book!!! I’ve enjoyed every book I’ve read by Adriana Locke, but this is by far the best I’ve read from her. The story follows Haley, a woman who wholeheartedly believes in love, and knows that she’s fallen into it too quickly in the past. She’s trying to work on herself and be single for a while, so that the next guy she falls for will be the right one. When she meets Trevor, they have instant chemistry and attraction sizzles between them. But Trevor is a commitment-phobe (though an adorable one), who hates when women don’t heed his warnings and catch feelings for him. They know that romance between them could never work, but that doesn’t stop the connection they feel, and as they have a series of run-ins, it becomes more and more difficult to resist the attraction.
Trevor is such a great guy, so relatable, and that is a true testament to Adriana Locke’s skill as a writer, because a guy who goes around inadvertently breaking women’s hearts should not be a likeable character. His treatment of Haley is great to read, because it becomes clear pretty quickly how women keep falling for him, but also that his feelings for Haley are unlike his past experiences. It’s a slow burn with plenty of heat along the way, and the tension between the two is palpable. There’s never a more tense situation than two people who are feeling the same thing, want each other… but know that they can’t go there. Thank you, NetGalley, for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review. I loved reading this fantastic book that shows the complexities of finding love. I am so looking forward to the next book in the series.
