REVIEW : Tangled Up in Christmas by Lisa Renee Jones


I might be a country girl from the same small town of Sweetwater, Texas, as horse wrangler Roarke Frost, the girl next door who knows him like few know him, but I didn’t know enough to save my heart.

He’s the reason why I left Sweetwater behind.

But now fate proves she loves a wicked twist and sends me back to Sweetwater to pull together a Christmas festival—and I run smack into the man again, quite literally. His body is pressed to mine, his hands on my arms, and I’m melting like chocolate in the sizzling Texas sunshine. And I run.

I know it’s not exactly respectable, but it works, just not for long. No matter how much I try to get tangled up in Christmas, I end up tangled up in Roarke instead—and the man has me feeling the heat of our attraction and the warmth of our past friendship. He feels like Mr. Right, but history says he’s Mr. Wrong.

But if he wants a second chance, Roarke Frost is going to have to work for it. He’ll need to prove to me that this holiday is a season of new beginnings, the kind that last forever.

The wheels hit the runway, and I stare out the window, wondering if Texas still smells like queso, margaritas, and hot cowboys to me, as it once did.

my review

A second chance romance with a little Christmas flair.

Roarke and Hannah grew up together and eventually formed a relationship, until one day everything changed and Hannah left. Years later she is back in Texas and back in the town she grew up in.

I fell in love with Roarke when he was first introduced in The Truth About Cowboys and was super excited to find out he was getting his own story. The horse wrangler does not disappoint when it comes to romance and steam! He wants another chance with Hannah and this time he is willing to fight for her and let her know the truth about what really happened the first time around.

Hannah left Sweetwater broken hearted, but she is back and more mature. Of course, the moment she lands in Texas she runs into the last person she wants to see, Roarke. I loved Hannah and Jason’s relationship; she was truly like a baby sister to him. I loved that she instantly become friends with Jessica. Plus, the grandmas. Who doesn’t love them?!

I loved Roarke and Hannah’s relationship. These two had chemistry like there is no tomorrow. I loved how they bonded over their love of helping animals. They work well as a team both with the animals and as a couple. Of course, there are some secrets between them that need to come to light.

If you’re looking for an ultra-steamy, small town, cowboy filled Christmas romance then this is one book you’ll want to read this Holiday Season!
