REVIEW : Tangle by Adriana Locke

That cream-filled, caramel-topped doughnut should have been hers. Still, Haley Raynor can’t deny that the pastry thief with the dreamy blue eyes looks even more delicious. But moving in on a handsome devil like Trevor Kelly is bad news for a die-hard romantic like Haley. Trevor doesn’t believe in love. She does. Giving in to a fling and Trevor’s irresistible charms can’t end well. Can it? What can it hurt to give it a shot?

Girls always fall for Trevor, and in the end, he always ends up looking like a bad-boy cad. Still, spending some time with Haley and her smart-talking, kissable mouth sounds pretty perfect. Besides, he’s only going to be in Dogwood Lane for one week. How much trouble could they possibly get into?

The only answer? A “no falling in love” contract. All Trevor and Haley have to do is follow the rules and resist the attraction sizzling between them…before their hearts get completely tangled up in temptation.

“You are the exact kind of guy who’s broken my heart a dozen times. I should hate you on principle.”


Tangle is book 2 in the Dogwood Lane series. This is Haley, who you may remember as Dane’s cousin if you read Tumble and Trevor.

Haley has had horrible luck when it comes to dating, so she is done with it, she is taking a break. Trevor doesn’t believe in love. Everyone around him has been in a relationship that hasn’t worked out. So what happens when promises are written on napkins and a new friendship forms?

Haley, she was one sassy little firecracker and I LOVED that about her. She wasn’t afraid to give what she got, even if it was to a complete stranger. The banter between her and Trevor was fantastic and I loved the chemistry between the two of them. Trevor, the doughnut thief, was a man all about one-night stands. He didn’t do relationships, especially with his past and the relationships he has seen around him.

This book had me laughing, it was sweet, and it will leave you smiling. I love the little bits and pieces of Dane and Neely and glimpses into more of the Dogwood Lane characters. I can’t wait to see what is in store for Penn. I think that man may finally meet his match.

Tangle a perfect small town romance and a MUST READ for the summer!
