Emma has been one of my favorites for a long time, but she has really made me fall in love with her even more, with this new series. I really liked the first book, Twisted Bond, and I loved this one!! These characters are so real, and I relate to them so much. Noelle is strong, sassy, and snarky on the outside, but unsure and insecure on the inside. Drake is smokin' hot, badass, & protective, yet kind and loving. He goes out of his way to show Noelle he cares, despite her hang-ups and her constantly pushing him away (& pissing him off!). Their witty, sarcastic banter keeps me laughing, and reminds me of my own marriage. It is obvious that Emma has put so much of herself into this book, and I absolutely adored that about it. Her references to her own likes & dislikes had me cracking up! I loved every second of this book, and I can't wait for the next one!!
Here's the blurb:
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 warpath—and the crazy old bat has Cupid by the balls.
The upcoming mayoral elections has everyone running on full speed, and while I couldn’t give any less craps about the corrupt Holly Woods mayor’s 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 won’t get this murder solved… Or deal with the arrival of someone from his past.
The mysteries behind the murder aren’t the only things unraveling, and despite being knee-deep in lies and corruption and bonds so tangled they’re almost indecipherable, I have to figure out if I’m willing to fight for Drake the way I do justice…
Or if he’ll be my one who gets away.
(TANGLED BOND is the second book in the Holly Woods Files series. Although there isn't a cliffhanger, this book does not stand alone and TWISTED BOND must be read first.)
