TANGLED BOND by EMMA HART REVIEW


‘Drake Nash is a walking, talking, highly irritating, spectacular kissing machine.’


Tangled BONDThe Holly Woods Files #2

Publication date: 30th July 2015
Format/Source: e-Book/ Publisher


Synopsis

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.


My thoughts

Tangled Bond just is a gem of a series! Twisted Bond set up the characters, some of the background and the heat between two fiery characters.  Tangled Bond takes everything we know and explodes with heat, crime, murder and HEAT!

I love the relationship between Drake and Noelle, the heat and the fire, the ice and the arguments!

‘We’re oil and water.  Chalk and cheese. Snow and sun.  Equally, though, we’re fire and gasoline, burning matches and fireworks, kindling wood and bonfire.  We’re opposite but explosive. Opposite but unhealthy. Opposite and possibly a little toxic.’

They have such amazing banter which adds a great depth to the story.  Not only is this a crime book, it’s a giggle out loud screwed up romance book! Alongside Drake’s amazing charm, Noelle is tasked with finding another murderer before someone else dies. Juggling Drake and the case, Noelle must also avoid Nonna because she is on a mission with her wedding book!

‘And Nonna is there. With her wedding scrapbook.’
I stop at my car, my fingers freezing over the handle. ‘With her what?’
No. No, she isn’t.  It better be for Devin to look at.
‘Her Noelle wedding scrapbook.’  Drake looks like he doesn’t know whether to be confused or laugh his ass off.’

There is never a dull moment in this book, things are just thrown at you as a reader and you are kept guessing until the very end.  I love how Hart builds up the plot, builds up the evidence to find out ‘who done it.’ I can’t wait to see where this series goes. I need answers! Now.  I also need a lot more Drake!!
