I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This book is an installment from The Shaughnessy Brothers series, and can be a standalone story. Having said that, the author did incorporate many of the characters in the previous series, but you did not feel lost in the storyline.

Bobby and Teagan meet at a family barbeque and sense an attraction, however, Bobby is resistant to act on it because he is recovering from an injury from his job, and Teagan, a widow, just mov

Samantha Chase’s Tangled Up In You is an honest and heartbreaking story of one man’s struggle to accept that an injury may prevent him from returning to a job that he loves. I loved Bobby Hannigan’s relationship with Quinn Shaughnessy in the earlier books in this series, especially when Quinn started to date his sister Anna. Their give and take relationship is tested as Quinn is tasked with telling Bobby about the extent of his injuries. Ms Chase kept the characters true to themselves in this po ...more

TANGLED UP IN YOU by Samantha Chase is the seventh novel in the popular Shaughnessy Brothers series. It was so nice to go back and visit old friends and make some new ones along the way! This author’s strength is in her story telling. She puts together a solid story that not only tugs at your heart strings, but also leaves you at the end with a group of characters that have become part of your life. Most importantly, she leaves you wanting so much more.

5 Perfect Stars!!!

I was so excited when I heard Bobby Hannigan was getting his own story. We met him in Quinn’s book and their friendship and partnership is rock solid. Until one day on the job changes everything for this man. My heart really hurt for him because I know how much he loves working in law enforcement and for that to possibly be taken from him is not something he’s ever thought about.

Teagan and her five-year-old son leave Colorado and move to the Carolina coast, following her parents who make their retirement home in the same small town as the massive, loveable Shaughnessy clan.

Bobby and Teagan...I love them! Talk about experiencing pain and hardship, but never giving up. Both of them went through what has to be two of the most painful events I can imagine, and the emotion and steps that they shared in this story were told brilliantly and beautifully.

I was excited to return to the Shaughnessy Brothers and family as that is one of my favorite literary families and with Bobby being in the mix I knew there would be fun times, snarky moments and love. Samantha Chase deliv

Perfect Beach Read!
Bobby Hannigan and Teagan Shaughnessy meet when both their lives are in transition but, despite having so many unknowns, their connection feels right.
Using the beautiful Carolina Coast as her backdrop, Samantha Chase beautifully crafted a light-hearted but emotional story of finding new love and yourself. The summer setting combined with a longer timeline, I’m really loving stories that give us more than a few weeks and then jump to the epilogue set in the future, makes this

Bobby and Teagan are both strong willed independent souls but can't deny the sexual chemistry between them.

I enjoyed this book. Taking two people who have had two completely different major life events happen to them and having them really get to know each other and find their way to love.

No idea how I managed to finish this. I pretty much skimmed the last few chapters. I know this is an unpopular opinion judging by the reviews but here's why I rated it so low.

My first and biggest issue was the heroine. Teagan, in summary she was flip-floppy, mean & cowardly. I despised that she would constantly push and pull when it came to her relationship with Bobby. She was always finding reasons for it not to work. Her excuses were dismal at best. She knew before all of this occurred he was

Tangled Up in You is the final book in The Shaughnessy Brothers series by Samantha Chase. The hero is Anna's brother from Always my girl (book 3) and Teagan is Quinn's cousin. Two things bothered me and led me to give 3.5 stars to the book. The minor problem I had was the epilogue. Since this is the final book, I was expecting to have a big epilogue with most if not all of the couples from the series. Instead, we got one with Bobby and Teagan only. That did not affect my rating in a negative way ...more

A glorious return to all things Shaughnessy! If you were as big of fan of this family as I have been throughout this series, you will be thrilled to get to touch base with all of them again when their cousin Teagan finds love with Bobby Hannigan. Love this series as a whole and this particular book was a mix of reunion and rediscovery. Enjoyed it!

First off, FAN-FLIPPING-TASTIC!!!!! OH! MY!! GOSH!!! Thank you, Samantha Chase, for writing this story and extending the Shaughnessy series for one more book! I FLOVED every single word!!!
I have either read and/or listened to every book in this series and was wishing for a story for Bobby Hannigan. We first really met Bobby Hannigan in Ms. Chase’s book Always My Girl, which is about Bobby’s sister Anna and Quinn Shaughnessy. There was a bit of animosity between Bobby and Quinn because of the way

Tangled Up in You is a second chance at romance even if the first time wasn't with each other and Bobby wasn't ever serious about a woman before.  This is Teagan and Bobby's story and the seventh book in The Shaughnessy Brothers series.  Teagan is a cousin to the Shaughnessys and though she hasn't spent much time with them in years it's like they've never been apart.  She's an only child who moved a lot since her dad was in the military.  She's also a

I have loved the Shaughnessy Brothers series, and over time have come to see them as one of my favorite fictional families. They are real, believable and their stories have only gotten more poignant, more realistic over time as well. If I had to pick a favorite novel from this series it would have to be TANGLED UP IN YOU for several reasons. Mostly though because Teagan’s and Bobby’s lives, emotions, and situations were so real that they broke my heart and eventually

Bobby and Teagan.
Overall this was a good story. But I had problems with both of these characters. And with the constant back and forth of the issues they had with each other.
Both Bobby and Teagan are basically the same character. They are both strong, independent stubborn and at times very immature. Going out of their way to do for themselves rather than ask for help. To the point of sometimes doing more harm than good.
Bobby has been a side character in most of the bo

This is the first Shaughnessy Brothers novel I've read, so you'll have to bear with me on this one. I have read the Band on the Run series though, which is a spin off of this series, so I've gotten to see many of the characters sprinkled throughout. The Shaughnessy family is uber involved in each other's business, so many of them make appearances in the Band on the Run series stories. I understand why now, they are a great clan who love o

If you've read any of the Shaunghnessy series so far you've probably met Bobby Hannigan. Bobby was always that side character that you wanted to know more about and now we get his story. Bobby doesn't handle the aftermath of being shot in the best of ways and gets a tad grouchy. The only person who seems to pull him out of that funk is the last person he wants to have involvement with: a Shaughnessy. Not that he has anything against the Shaughnessys, after all, his sister is one and he loved gro ...more

Tangled Up in You by Samantha Chase is a hot, heartfelt, and full of good feels kind of book. The characters pulled me into their story right away. I felt their chemistry spark instantly. It was so funny. A man, Bobby, is an injured cop. He didn't want to go to the family outing but does. He has been nothing but  a crab to his family. Yet the moment he sees and meets a beautiful woman, all anger sort of goes away. Then, he almost drops his plate of food and has her helping him. That set him off ...more
