Things heat up, and not just the Georgia summertime, when Dane and Laney go head to head over plans for her new duplex. But Laney's got his number, and knows just how to coerce her bossy, domineering man. Spend the summer with the gang and find out...just how many is a crowd?
The members of the Evolve Crew are getting older; so is the content. Mature audiences recommended.
“No one could possibly feel like this. It’s like an all-consuming need for another person, just to survive.”
Entangled is centered on Dane and Laney’s relationship and is told in both of their point of view. As you would expect they are as strong as ever. Dane remains to be the overly protective, attentive and romantic boyfriend who is dedicated to make Laney content and happy. He loves her dearly and wishes to spend the rest of his life with her. For him there will never be anyone else and he shows her repeatedly how important she is.
“…when his dominating stare is fixed on me, telling me I’m helpless to stop him when he wants me this badly, my ability to move, think, or possibly resist leaves me. I am but his for the taking, whenever and however he wants.”
Laney is just as in love with Dane. If you remember in Emerge, Laney was very shy and “innocent” but in Entangled she asserts her own sensuality much to Dane’s satisfaction. Their physical relationship is over the top. The romancing between the two is phenomenal. They never have an issue along those lines. I would have to say that all the flirting, PDA and the playfulness made me feel giddy all throughout the story.
“Only Dane makes me forget that not too long ago I was simply a girl; a scared, unsure, shy girl a long way from home. With him, as his, I am anything but. He revealed the true me – a confident sensual woman ready to embrace all that make me feel alive.”
There seems to be one tiny problem though. With her being younger it felt that somehow they weren’t on the exact same level. Dane is already accomplished and successful while Laney is just starting to live her life and I have this feeling that this will become an issue for them in the future. The love and devotion are there but the timing just doesn’t seem right. Because of this I felt that there was a slight disconnection between them and I can not wait to see where the author decides to go with this.
“….if I have to lead in with a “don’t worry” line, then that tells me right there it’s not the right time.”
I loved how the author mentioned the comings and goings of the rest of the crew. Those connections are so deep and intricate. Even if they all have their own separate lives when they come together their remarkable bond is ever so obvious. I loved that the couples around them remain just as strong. There was however issues with Sawyer. He felt “off” to me and this is another thing that I’m hoping that the author explores more on in future books.
“We’re a Crew. You screw with one of us, you screw with all of us.”
I thought that Entangled was a great compliment to this series. Although I did wish that it was longer. I would have to say that this is one of my favorite NA series to date. Why? I think the writing is fantastic, the relationships between ALL the characters is magnificent and of course the chemistry between the main couple was amazing.
Loved this one and I can not wait to see what the author has in store for us next.
“Men shouldn’t know how to decorate anyway, using words like gaudy.”
I let one brow raise and give him a suspicious smirk.
“Do I need to learn how to fix the cars then? What if I get a flat?”
“Oh baby,” he growls, his feet pounding the floor as he stalks toward me, “you questioning my manliness?”
“Maybe,” I tease, slowing backing up.
“Nancy.” My eyes dart anxiously around the room, mentally planning my escape route in this new territory. He laughs deeply, not a ‘ha ha that’s funny’ laugh, but more an ‘uh huh I’m coming to get ya’ sexy laugh.
“Got it planned yet?” He grins knowingly, one eyebrow cocked.
“Better run to wherever looks the most comfortable.” There’s no furniture yet, what is he talking about comfortable? Seeing the confusion on my face, he answers unasked.
“Showing you how much of a man I am when I catch ya,” he creeps closer, “so I’d stay away from the tile, might hurt your back,” the mischief in his eyes ignites as he continues moving slowly closer, “or your knees.”
Do I still have to pretend I don’t want to be caught? I love this side of Dane; the dominant, controlling, hunter than comes out more and more every day. The game’s precept itself is laughable; no one could question Dane’s virility. It seeps from his pores, an aura around him taking up all the air in a room. And he’s all mine. From his forever jostled brown locks and matching warm eyes, cocky lopsided grin and sculpted chest all the way to his eight back, that irresistible v and toned, tight ass- he is mine.
“You wouldn’t!” I challenge, knowingly delightfully well that he would.
“Oh baby, you know I can and will.” He flips open the button on his pants, that cocky grin suffocating me from where he stands, “I think you want me to.”
