Happily ever after? It doesn’t exist.

I wore the big white dress and rode off with Prince Charming. Then Charming changed his mind.

These days, I don’t put my heart in anyone’s hands because I don’t even know where I’ve left it.

So when a ruggedly handsome, blue-eyed man stirs my desires awake for the first time in years, I tell myself it’s a one-time thing.

And now? I’m hooked. Nothing could prepare me for Leo. He weaves simple, deliberate movements into pure, gilded pleasure. Like a sensual alchemist.

I’m so blinded by lust I barely notice the gaping hole opening underneath me, the one that’s sure to swallow me down. Because every time I’ve dared to get close to someone, they’ve cracked me wide open.

Why should this time be any different?

In Entangle, we meet with Alexis Stone, a successful business woman running her own business who, unfortunately wasn’t as lucky in love as she’s been in business. After a messy divorce, she swears off love for a while, deciding she might as well spend the rest of her life on her own. Leo Conrad is one of her employees, very handsome, but unfortunately not quite lucky in love either, as he had his heart broken in the past, and is now being stalked by a crazy ex.

Alexis and Leo have an almost tangible attraction between them, and from one thing comes another, and they hook up. It starts off as casual sex for both of them, at least that’s how they intended it, but it doesn’t stay with that. Instead of going away, the attraction between them only grows, and they start becoming almost addicted to one another.

The romance was steamy, and for the first part of the book, very enjoyable to read about. Then the drama got added in, and I enjoyed reading about how both characters dealt with it in ways that were consistent with their personality: Leo going all alpha male, and Alexis falling into her old insecurities. It was like they went right back to the start, and then had to work to find each other again. It was a good move, showing that love isn’t always easy, and sometimes you have to struggle through things to get there.

Both characters were engaging, but Alexis was my favorite of the two of them. The secondary characters were all right too. The writing worked, and the story was entertaining.
