Tangled Up In You – Samantha Chase


I was fortunate to receive this book as an Advance Reader Copy from Netgalley, in exchange for an objective review.

Teagan Shaughnessy is a young, single mother, trying her best to raise her young son Lucas and gain an education. Having lost Lucas’ father to a military demise, she devotes her life to raising their son. She has just moved from Colorado to coastal North Carolina, where she’s landed her dream job.
Bobby Hannigan is a police officer who, while trying to thwart a robbery,
took a bullet to his shoulder, that may just end his career. Angry and humiliated that he has to rely on others to assist with his care, he is staying with his parents until he is independent enough to return home to Myrtle Beach and the life he knows.

At a family picnic the two chance to meet and sparks fly immediately. But Bobby remains angry at his disability and and continually isolates himself from Teagan and the things he is beginning to feel for her. Similarly, Teagan is attracted to Bobby, but her determination to forgo a relationship and raise her son has her back-stepping from Bobby. Can these two star-crossed lovers find their way through their difficulties and learn to love?

I chose this book more for the setting (North Carolina) than the storyline, as I used to live there, and I found it to be a quick sweet read! A little dry at times for me, but Lucas was a show stealer quite often. I loved the backstory, and repartee between Bobby & Quinn as well! A part of a series if you love the characters, but easily read as a stand-alone as well. The perfect beach read!!

Hi there! I am Mel and I love to read!! My favorite genres are typically mystery/thriller, adventure/suspense and occasionally chick lit/romance stories (when the mystery/thrillers get to be too much, which isn't too often!) I have just started to write reviews for Amazon, Goodreads and this blog, although I am a novice to blogging, so THIS is a work in progress - as you can see the reviews are numerous and the true blogs are few - I'll hopefully be improving on that as time goes on!! I'm looking to network, give some newer authors some exposure and to perhaps explore myself a bit in this whole process!! I am a critical care turned CDI nurse, recently transplanted to coastal Florida, from New England. (Would love to assist with medical/hospital verbiage/scenes for authors!) I love a great cup (or pot) of coffee, day trips, visiting state parks and other nature made places, and exploring/photographing wildlife. And birds...I am a HUGE bird/nature nerd!! Thanks for stopping by! :)
