Great second chance love story.


I generally don’t like second chance romances because I like to read about the couple first meeting and their reactions to one another. What brought them together, do they instantly hate each other or are they attracted to each other, or both? However I decided to read this one because I like Lisa Renee Jones’ writing. She a

Sweet second chance romance with a surprising almost clean twist. No angst like I was expecting. Plus a second story attached.
~~~~~~~~~~~~
I’m so used to reading her stories with a bit of mystery and suspense that I was surprised with the second chance romance. I kept waiting for the bad; the angst, but it never really came.

This story is a heartfelt romance about two people that truly should’ve never been apart. But other people got in the way.

But now they’re workin

With a little bit of angst, some homecoming feels, and a lot of secrets, this was a great second chance story.

Tangled Up in Christmas is the second book in the Texas Heat series, though it can easily be read as a standalone. The main characters from book one appear in this story quite a bit, but the author gives relevant information about their relationship so that the reader does not feel like s/he is missing anything vital to this story.

After her celebrity photographer boss is caught in the #MeToo scandal, Hannah has little choice but to leave Los Angeles and go back to/>Tangled

Roarke made quite the impact in The Truth About Cowboys. He was such a good friend to Jason, helping him straighten up before he lost Jessica, and then add in a that he is a veterinarian who loves animals? How could you not love him.

Roarke was everything I thought he would be in this book. I loved his character and I loved how he handled Hannah and the reason they were separated in the first place. All I could think about was Hannah is probably kicking herself for not standing by him

If you have read THE TRUTH ABOUT COWBOYS then you know Roarke, he is the Vet in the town of Sweetwater and best friend to Jason, this is his story. I was really looking forward to reading about Roarke and learning more about this brooding cowboy because we all know that someone broke his heart at some point we just didn't know who or how, well we get all the answers we were looking for in this book.

My head hurts.

It really does.

Roarke and Hannah took me on one hell of a ride. A ride I was all in for. But hot damn. The yo-yo’ing these two did just about killed me ~ though if it had, it would have been my own fault because I kept turning the pages to see what would happen next, but I needed to see just how everything would work it self for Roarke and Hannah in the end.

I really liked Hannah and Roarke. Roarke is a good man. Compassionate, passionate and determin

Roarke was the love of her life. Having been engaged to him and on the verge of marriage, Hannah could not think of anything that could go wrong. Just then, a video of Roarke and a model (who was all over him!) showed up on her phone. Needless to say, Hannah packed her bags and left Sweetwater, Texas hopefully never to come back.

A couple of years have passed and Hannah is now in Dallas and starting to make a new beginning with her career as a photographer and event organizer. Maybe i

Tangled Up In Christmas by Lisa Renee Jones is book Two in the Texas Heat Series. This is the story of Roarke and Hannah. I have read the previous book and we did meet Roarke is that book but I did feel you could make this a standalone book if you wish to do so. Hannah left Sweetwater Texas behind her along with her broken heart due to Roarke. But after her loss of a job she ends up returning home where she ends up seeing Roarke again.

I am loving the Texas Heat series. Lisa Renee Jones has always been one of my favorite authors. She knows how to write drama, Romantic Suspense and now has me totally involved and in love with this mainstream series. She knows how to write a story that will melt your heart and bring a beautiful smile to your face.

I wasn’t really sure how this story was going to progress and what could be done to salvage the relationship between Hannah and Roarke. A second chance, that’s all Roarke wa

5 Star Review of Tangled Up In Christmas (Texas Heat #2) by Lisa Renee Jones
Lisa Renee Jones’ writing is so descriptive that I found myself transported to Sweetwater, Texas. Tangled Up In Christmas is a second chance at love story that will draw you in and have you invested from the first chapter.
There was something about Roarke Frost that drew me in almost as much as it did our heroine Hannah. Even though she knows he is not right for her, after all she believes he cheated on her when th

Tangled Up In Christmas was okay.

Hannah and Roarke broke up years ago when she was sent a video insinuating that he cheated. Now years later after Hannah lost her dream job she's back home with a plan to start over and ends up running smack into Roarke. It's a lot of push and pull to get these two to see that they're perfect for each other.

This book was fine. In every sense of the word. It was fine. The pacing was good in some areas and not in others (dragging a lot unnecessarily).

~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~

This is the second book in the series, but can be read as a stand alone - I did! I may have to go back and read about Jason and Jessica, as they are important in this story, and we get some strong hints that how their relationship started is definitely worth knowing.

Hannah finds herself back in the town she grew up, and that she left after being sent an incriminating video of her fiancé, Roarke. She never found another to lov

"I lost him before I lost him, or what went down would not have gone down."

I'm so addicted to this new Texas Heat series. I'd say it's up there at the very top of my favorites from this author. Yes, I'm from Texas, but that's not why. There are lots of reasons, including the amazing cast of characters in Sweetwater, Texas. And they aren't just cowboys either. Nope, we got pro baseball players, horse wranglers, yoga enthusiasts, and cookie-baking grandmas.

Genre: General fiction (Adult), Romance

Well, having read several of Lisa's books now this one caught me out. I'm used to her hot and sensual, suspenseful and edgy reads, and this one – well it felt like Lisa Renee Jones does Mills and Boon. It was a fun read and I enjoyed it but I didn't love it.

Ho Ho Ho! Santa isn't in this book but he sure did bring some Christmas cheer and a a miracle that makes snow in 70 degree weather look like a magic trick.

Tangled Up in Christmas is a jump start on the Holiday hotness. Is it wrong to say that this should almost be an advent calendar? We might need some more books in the Texas Heat series before we can make that happen. However. We are off to a good start.

Holy hotness in some Wranglers, Levi's, or whatever that man is wear
