Sparks fly between a die-hard romantic and a sexy cynic in this fresh, funny romance from USA Today bestselling author Adriana Locke.

That cream-filled, caramel-topped doughnut should have been hers. Still, Haley Raynor can’t deny that the pastry thief with the dreamy blue eyes looks even more delicious. But moving in on a handsome devil like Trevor Kelly is bad news for a

No room for Jesus ⭐️

I can count on one hand the number of my most favorite authors of all time and Adriana Locke is definitely one of them. ❤️

Tangle is even better than Tumble and I could bet my life Pen & Grace’s story will be the best of the series.

Ok, so Haley and Trevor.
She’s smart. Really smart. Funny as hell, gorgeous and her dry wit is impossible not to admire.
Trevor is Prince Charming-material, drool-worthy, also super intelligent and his banter with the heroine makes this book deserve

I love a sweet, small town romance and Adriana Locke does them so well!

Haley Raynor has lived in Dogwood Lane for a few years, as she helps with her cousin Dane’s daughter as her part time nanny. She’s single and wants to stay that way for a while after a few flops with relationships lately. Then she meets Trevor Kelly at the donut shop.

Trevor is pretty irresistible to Haley. He’s in town to oversee a construction project her cousin Dane is doing and he and Haley become friends. I

If I thought I fell in love with Dogwood Lane in Tumble, I didn’t even know what love was. I mean, this small town filled with these larger than life personalities is working hard on owning my heart. And y’all? I’m not even trying to fight it.

This felt so good! From the perfectly executed sparky banter, to the slowly building scintillating chemistry that burned between Trevor and Haley – every bit of this story was a delight! I don’t even know who I loved more! Honestly, in a rare feat – I think

I found the first book Tumble to be sweet and adorable but this book..... This book is on a whole different level! Who knew Haley could be a sassy firecracker! Definitely not me but man was I living for it! I love when a side character in a previous book surprises the hell out of you once they get their own story. Tangle in my opinion was way more enjoyable than Tumble because this reader related more to these main characters and loved the sexy, sassy banter and the whole runner/chaser dynamic. ...more

Once again Adriana Locke has given us small town romance with a lot of heart. This is sort of a reluctant, yet inevitable romance. These two promise they won’t fall in love, but you know how that goes.

Haley loves love, she just hasn’t had much luck with it. Trevor doesn’t think that OTL exists, and he’s also had terrible experiences with the supposed big L. These two have an immediate attraction and pull toward each other. Their banter and connection is so fun, and once they’ve known each other

"I want her to want me the same way I'm wanting her, even though I know it's fucking stupid. And unfair. And illogical. But she doesn't. And I shouldn't."

I have to say, I have a girl crush on Hayley. She had me cracking up in the first chapter and I never stopped. Especially when she's with her bestie Claire. Please tell me she'll get her own book, pretty please? I can't wait to meet the man that can handle her...and Hayley since they are a package deal. I'm smiling just thinking about it.

Another winner for Adriana Locke. Trevor and Hayley were adorable together. I always enjoy when the H and h forge a good friendship first. I loved how tangled up Trevor got in his feelings for Hayley. I actually teared up because he was so tortured. He really didn't get it. And Hayley ended up so strong in her conviction. All around fantastic read! ...more

Tangle is the book that you'll tell your friends about. Trust me. I'm telling you about it, arent' I?
I don't even have words to express how much I love this book.

Trevor Kelly is everything. EVERYTHING.

I enjoyed every single moment of Haley and Trevor’s journey and their chemistry was to die for. In true Adriana Locke fashion, she’s given us yet another couple to completely fall in love with!

Haley & Trevor, along with the rest of the Dogwood Lane crew, give me life!! This is THE book that you don

I was so thrilled to be back in Dogwood Lane! Locke writes my most absolute favorite small town romances and this one takes the cake...AND the donuts! Trevor Kelly is delicious in every single way and Haley is endearing and so so fun! The two of them together are everything! I never want to leave Dogwood and can’t wait to visit again!

THE BEST LOCKE BOOK YET! Sorry for the shouty caps, but that is a HUGE feat to beat! I love Adriana's book, but this one just grabbed my heart and spoke to my soul in the happiest of ways. From the opening scene that had me grinning ear to ear to the final page where I was secretly praying there were more, I loved this book. The character development is excellent, the banter is perfect, and the storyline kept me flipping pages and then dreading that it was ending.

ARC kindly received in exchange for an honest review.

I had previously read the first book in this series, and I was excited to see that Adriana was releasing the next book because the people of the Dogwood Lane are awesome.

Wet met Hayley previously because she was Mia's Nanny, assisting Dane while he raised her. So this time, it's her chance at a happily ever after and for us to get to know her.

I really liked Hayley and enjoyed watching her trying to work out how she wants her life t

I loved the first book in this series but Trevor and Haley were everything. I think a lot of women can identify with Haley and how she sees love and relationships. The wit, banter and issues are easily relatable and the reader roots for both of them. Well worth your time to read.

I absolutely loved this story! I related so much to Haley and her desire to find love. I saw so much of myself in her. Adriana does an excellent job of creating both a heroine looking for love but being a strong woman at the same time. My favorite love stories are those where the hero thinks he doesn’t want love and then meets his match in the heroine and falls to his knees. That’s this story. Trevor doesn’t believe in one love for a lifetime while Haley believes in the fairy tale. Can Haley get ...more

I’ve yet to read an Adriana Locke book that I haven’t LOVED, and Tangle was no exception. Small town is my absolute favorite trope to read in the romance genre. Add in that Haley and Trevor are total opposites and this has all the makings of a five-star read for me! I loved Haley’s character and her belief in love and found her to be super relatable. Overall, I love this book and hope this series never ends!

Here we are back in Dogwood Lane. One of my favorite towns to visit. Yay! Now it's time for Haley to be our heroine. We begin by her losing her job at the library. That sucks! Then her day gets worse from there. Now all she wants is her favorite donut and a cup of coffee. Enter our hero, the donut thief.
Our hero is rich, handsome and a bit of a self confessed cad. He has a string of women who seem to 'cling' to him after he tries to dump them. Our heroine is well aware of his type and refuses

5 Star review of Tangle (Dogwood Lane #2) by Adriana Locke
Tangle was well written and full of love, romance, laughter and the opportunity for Hayley Raynor and Trevor Kelly to fall in love. I really liked Hayley and Trevor, both separately and together.
There was not a thing that I didn’t love about this book. From the first page to the last I was absolutely captivated by the story that Adriana Locke wove and read this in almost one go. I love small town romances and when you throw characters li

I loved the story, the characters, the secondary characters and the banter.

I started the book on a red eye flight from the US to Italy and didn’t sleep a wink because every time I put my Kindle in the seat pocket and closed my eyes, I sat there thinking that I’d read just one more chapter.
One more chapter turned into 78% of the book. ❤️

I fell in love with Trevor right along with Haley.

Swoon swoon swoooon!
This romance was a little on the sweeter side than I normally go for, but I didn’t mind one bit! I jumped into this one having not read the first in the series and that didn’t affect my enjoyment of this at all - definitely can be read as a standalone. I do want to go back and read Tumble now, not to mention the upcoming third book (so ready to watch Penn fall in love)!

Haley and Trevor were just true perfection. They’re both full of intelligence and wit; their banter made me
4.25 Stars

Tangle brings a romance that is a delight to read. I loved every minute of this book and I think the author did a great job with these characters!

Here is the story of Haley, a character who believes in love and who after having had countless amorous delusions for falling in love with the wrong guys, wants to take time out in love, what she did not expect was to come across Trevor, her complete opposite and who does not believe in love. Two people totally opposite, but they complement
With the high rating and all and I was bored out of my mind.
I wanted this nonsense to finish already

I'm fed up with the weak images of heroines that authors write about in the last two years.
Fed up with the troubled hero who have over the top issues with love.
Just pointless boring drama all the time, when the heroine wants the hero more than he wants her.

Blahhh 🤤

I have a case of Lost in Translation with this book. I can not connect to the characters at all. This book is character driven. Meaning the story and the banter is build from character development. Meaning there is a lot of conversation, banter and depth conversation.

I do like a character driven story, but this book is off. I listen until 5th hour and I give up.

You know what they say about best-laid plans.....and of course this one is no different - its especially entertaining when you have a hardcore cynic who does not believe in love and a small town girl who wants nothing more than to be loved!!!

I absolutely adore the town of Dogwood Lane and all its resident, and I look forward to visiting it many more times over the course of the next few books.

I loved Haley when we first met her in Tumble. She is this sassy little dynamite package who has a heart

It’s going to be hard to put into words how I feel about this book. It’s simply amazing. This is why Adriana Locke is my favorite author.

Haley dates really crappy, bad for her, guys. And not just dates, but falls in love with them. And then she finds herself alone again. Her cousin Dane (from the book Tumble) bet her that she can’t date for six months. She accepted. Haley has really been finding herself and making herself happy and then walks in Trevor Kelly.

Who new a doughnut can be the catalyst for romance - LOL. Hayley has had her fill with crappy relationships and decides with the help from her family to not date for a few months. Taking the time for herself, she is literally left with her mouth hanging open when a sexy stranger tries to take the last doughnut she had her eye on. But will the chemistry with Trevor be the end of her dry spell? Or will their thoughts to having a "no Falling in Love" agreement, once again leave Hayley without a las ...more
Tangle was just as the title suggests...a tangle of emotions. Haley and Trevor are on opposite ends of the spectrum when it comes to relationships. She has always been a girl who is in love with the idea of being "in love." Trevor, on the other hand, is all in for the benefits of a relationship but not necessarily the relationship least not for the long term. One thing that they both have in common is a shared attraction for one another. They just have to find common ground. Haley as ...more

She’s a whizz at writing these small hometown stories filled with dirty talking gorgeous guys and sassy, snarky, take-no-prisoners girls.
