Series:  Entangle Me #1


A jilted girl…
A wicked boy…
A forbidden kiss…
A happily ever after?

Lacey Ryan’s perfect life was well underway, until her fiancé blindsides her with a betrayal so deep it changes everything. Now her life’s gone to hell, and the only way out may be at the hands of the last person she’d have expected to come to her rescue, Tristan Keys—the deliciously sexy player she’s fantasized about her entire life.

Sure he’s arrogant, cocksure, and frustratingly handsome, but he’s also offering exactly what she needs, a fresh start planning destination weddings. First class flights, the chance to see the world, and maybe a little harmless flirtation while she’s at it. Yes, it’s just what she needs.

Only there’s one glaring problem: Tristan happens to be her brother’s best friend. Which means he is completely off-limits. She knows it, he knows it. It’s completely forbidden. Even though she’s always followed all the rules, suddenly Lacey find herself wanting to break them all. Is he worth the risk? Or will he only break her heart—and possibly her bed springs? There’s only one way to find out, and it’s going to involve a lot of suitcase packing, merlot and chocolate.

My Thoughts

Well, first off i should thank the folks at Instafreebie who gave me access to this sweet story.  I don’t know that i would have crossed paths with it so this was a nice trip off my usual.  What we have here is a really sweet semi chick lit type story about a girl who’s been forced to find herself and her own love now that she’s found out that her fiance (and bf of 6 years) has cheated on her, the day before her wedding.

Where we go from there though, you have to keep in mind we really only see a span of less than 24 hours in the actual story (although there are jumps in the prologue and epilogue) but at least for those few hours, we see our leading lady Lacey go through stages of grief rather quickly, and make a determined decision to get back on her feet and sort herself out instead of wallowing.

The nice thing here is that while she does the drunken wallow well that first night, she also happens to come across the path of her brother’s best friend from childhood and of course drunkenness and hot guys means that we’re going to see complications come up in the story as it progresses.

If that weren’t enough, there’s a lot looming on the horizon for Lacey professionally both with her own company and an opportunity that said drunk brother’s friend offers, so i think that where we go with this series will be a place where we can see how she comes into her own and then figures out how to make herself happy without her cheating ex.

All in all a sweet story – quite a quick read but that’s kind of what i needed last night – so if you’re able to get your hands on it, i’d say do it, and enjoy!
