I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
One date with the sexier-than-sin Detective Drake Nash. Simple.
Until you take into account that my brother finally proposed to his girlfriend, so Nonna is on a warpathÔÇöand the crazy old bat has Cupid by the balls.
The upcoming mayoral elections has everyone running on full speed, and while I couldnÔÇÖt give any less craps about the corrupt Holly Woods mayorÔÇÖs office, a dead body in the middle of a campaign speech has me thrown right into the middle of it. The victim is close to the mayor, but all he cares about is minimizing the damage to his campaign, so he hires me to work alongside Drake to close the case as quickly as possible.
Bad news for our tentative relationship.
We disagree far more than we agree, but being at loggerheads wonÔÇÖt get this murder solvedÔÇª Or deal with the arrival of someone from his past.
The mysteries behind the murder arenÔÇÖt the only things unraveling, and despite being knee-deep in lies and corruption and bonds so tangled theyÔÇÖre almost indecipherable, I have to figure out if IÔÇÖm willing to fight for Drake the way I do justiceÔÇª
Or if heÔÇÖll be my one who gets away.
Tangled Bond is the second book in Emma HartÔÇÖs new series ÔÇÿHolly Woods FilesÔÇØ, and CANNOT be read as a standalone. We have met Noelle and Drake in book one, Twisted Bond, and their explosive, I-love-to-hate-you relationship, continues in this novelÔÇöpicking up where book one left off.
Noelle and Drake are as explosive as ever together, and fight more than they get along, yet, their chemistry is palpable and undeniable. While Drake know what he wantsÔÇöNoelle; she is struggling with her feelings for him. Yet, avoiding is only working for so long before Drake has enough and, like always, barges into her life without asking. The fact that we still donÔÇÖt know what happened to her in Dallas, and the reasons why she is so hesitant to accept all that Drake is offering, is equally frustrating and intriguing.
Emma Hart sure knows how to keep us hooked on the story. The chemistry, that was sizzling in book one, has been taken to a whole other level in this book. Drake and Noelle together are volatile, and Drake doesnÔÇÖt miss an opportunity to remind Noelle just how hot they are.
Emma Hart takes us on another suspenseful journey that again involves mystery, murder, suspense, deceit, and a whole lot of sexy and funny exchanges between the characters. Especially the relationship between Noelle and her Nonna is entertaining, and a big part why I love this series. I cannot get enough of Drake and Noelle. Emma Hart is one of the few who manages to skillfully combine mystery, suspense, and romance into one fun, intriguing, heartfelt, and sexy read. I highly recommend this series!
