Texas Heat #2

The book ends at the 57% mark - after that Lisa gives us an old Holiday romance: 
Santa Baby🎄

4.25 Stars

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 festivaland 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 insteadand 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 hes 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.

We all remember Roarke from the first book. He's Jason's best friend.
Hannah also used to be friends with those two guys. And she was so much more to Roarke. But then after that summer six years ago, Hannah left town with a broken heart.
But now she lost her job in Los Angeles and she's back home with an event-planning business.
And Roarke is still just as attracted to her. He never stopped loving her.
But what happened six years ago - why did he let her go???


A really sweet Texas & horses & cookies & second chances romance!
With lots of funny and adorable moments.
Holiday moments. Fighting moments. Arguing moments. Lots of sparky moments! Some heartbreaking & frustrating moments.
I really enjoyed reading it.

It was also another Lisa Renee Jones book - so it was just too long for me somehow. We could've cut a few pages and a few too complicated sentences. The writing was too weird and complicated here and there. It felt like Lisa tried too hard to sound different. I had to put it on hold for a couple of days and read two other review books first. Ones which moved through my brain much more easily. No idea why Lisa's words are too un-flow-y for my mind - maybe I just had an off day for that kind of writing. But I came back - and I really like the story now that I'm done with it. That sounds weird and a bit unkind. But it's a really cute second-chance love story!
I loved seeing Jason and Jessica from the first book again so much - and the grandmas!
I missed the Christmas from the title a bit. We don't really have Christmas is the book. There is some holiday stuff because they're planning that charity event, but that's it.
And for all her being mad at him and her resisting, it took her only such a short time in the end to forgive and forget and move right into his house. Which was so weird - she could've just stayed six years ago. What a waste of time! BUT - she was too young back then - she had a bit of life to live first. And Roarke was mature for both of them. He was really so very adorable! But he should've told her the truth a long time ago. But.... it was all okay the way it was. I liked reading the book. It was cute.

TANGLED UP IN CHRISTMAS was an adorable Texas-Horses-Second-Chance Love Story!
Run to your nearest amazon for your own Roarke - this one is MINE!
