Tangled Bond - Emma Hart (Holly Woods Files #2)

Published Date: July 30, 2015
Genre: Romance
Synopsis: One date with the sexier-than-sin Detective Drake Nash. Simple.

Until you take into account that my brother finally proposed to his girlfriend, so Nonna is on a warpath—and the crazy old bat has Cupid by the balls.

The upcoming mayoral elections has everyone running on full speed, and while I couldn’t give any less craps about the corrupt Holly Woods mayor’s office, a dead body in the middle of a campaign speech has me thrown right into the middle of it. The victim is close to the mayor, but all he cares about is minimizing the damage to his campaign, so he hires me to work alongside Drake to close the case as quickly as possible.

Bad news for our tentative relationship.

We disagree far more than we agree, but being at loggerheads won’t get this murder solved… Or deal with the arrival of someone from his past.
The mysteries behind the murder aren’t the only things unraveling, and despite being knee-deep in lies and corruption and bonds so tangled they’re almost indecipherable, I have to figure out if I’m willing to fight for Drake the way I do justice…
Or if he’ll be my one who gets away.

After I read the first book of Emma Hart in the Holly Woods Files series, I was thrilled to start the second. However, I wasn't as impressed as I should have been. If I am interested in a book, I will finish within a day flat. But I had to stop reading every now and then. 

I felt bad for Noelle in this book because of a plot twist or should I say twists. I don't want any spoilers for this book because it wasn't god awful where I would never read again but I would come back to it if I was dying of boredom and the last book on Earth was this one. 

Drake and Noelle's relationship deepens in this book and you can see that in reality, you just want that. I want Drake and Noelle's life to happen to me. It's thrilling. It's romantic. It's funny. Like come on, now. Please? With a cherry on top? Or maybe Drake Nash. LOL.

I think that I am liking the series so far but needless to say, I wasn't really impressed with this particular segment in Drake and Noelle's life.

Although they fight like no other, as Noona says, when you stop fighting, that's when you stop caring. Damn, Noona. That was deep and I think that is my life saying. Don't stop fighting with the ones you love. I mean, I definitely won't because that's how you show affection to them.

Okay, a new character or two, or three are introduced in this book and well, one of them will drive you insane as you think of her a some goblin hobbit looking Mrs. Robinson. She only sleeps her way to the top as some do. It's honestly sad that these books do portray a reality that is unseen. 

I rate this book a solid 3 out of 5 stars. 

Blog you later, awesome book nerds.
