One look and I knew Cole was mine. My dark rebel in leather. My powerhouse of passion, devastating smiles, and impulsiveness.
When his job sends him overseas, he promises to return to me.
A promise that’s destroyed in the most irrevocable way.
Two years later, an arrogant suit invades my heartbroken loneliness.
Clean-cut and stern, Trace is everything Cole wasn’t.
At first, he’s a job that will rescue my dance company. But as he intrudes on my life, our hostile relationship evolves.
He knows I’m still in love with Cole, but his dedication is my undoing.
Then a catastrophic moment changes everything.
And an impossible choice shatters my world.
I love two men, and I can only have one.
Wow, what a read!!! I was drawn in by the blurb, it sounded different and intriguing. Never in a million years did I think it would be one of those books you couldn’t put down, and when you did you just couldn’t stop thinking about it!! This book really got a hold of me, in a serious way that seldom happens.
Danni and Cole have that instant, all consuming attraction at their first meeting. Cole being a very Alpha and dominant motorbike riding, sex-on-legs-with-dimples kind of man and Danni being a belly dancer with the most open, honest and caring attitude ever. They were made for each other and for 10 months were blissfully happy and made wedding plans. Except Cole’s job took him away for what was supposed to be just a year, coming back to get married. But fate had other ideas and he never returned.
Danni was grief stricken and inconsolable for two years after losing Cole. She had just started trying to move on with her life after Cole, trying the dating thing again, unsuccessfully, when she meets Trace, a blonde God of an Alpha, cold, brutally handsome, always scowling – he becomes her new boss and has her dancing in his casino. Danni for the first time since losing Cole has sparks flying around her when Trace is near, their chemistry being something neither can ignore.
I loved Danni’s character in this, her strength to get through everything is palpable. With all the flashbacks through the book you know just how in love with Cole she was. The story alters between her push/pull hot/cold relationship with Trace, who is igniting feelings in Danni she thought she would never feel again, to the times she spent with Cole and the things they did, all the love they had, and all the hot sex they had also, which is really hot and steamy!!
I’m not a big fan of love triangles, I tend not to like the dynamics, the balance always seems to be off. But this – this is how you write a love triangle!!! I was so consumed with this book!!! I was so lost in the story, I could literally feel what Danni was going through, all the grief for Cole and the new excitement at being given a second chance at life with Trace.
I was on the edge of my seat for the entire book, it had me in knots!! So much angst in here!! But there is a huge cliffhanger at the end of the book that had my jaw on the floor – I just wasn’t expecting that!!!! Thank goodness book 2 is already out, I’m getting straight on it!!!
A fabulous read, this was my first book by Pam Godwin, it certainly won’t be my last!!! I can’t recommend this one enough – get it read!!
Two men who don’t share.
I never stopped loving Cole. Not when he left me. Not when he disappeared for three years. Not when he crashed back into my life in a violent explosion of testosterone and fury.
His sudden reappearance questions everything I thought I knew, including how I came to love another man.
Trace is an intoxicating breeze of seduction over ice. My rock. My second chance at forever.
And he’s committed to annihilating the competition.
The battle that ensues wrenches me back and forth between them.
Fighting and fucking.
Resisting and submitting.
Together, they entangle me in a web of lies, rivalry, and desire that weaves as deeply as their devotion to me.
I love two men, and if I can only have one, I choose none.
OMG book 2 in this Tangled Lies series by Pam Godwin!!! This book has consumed me!!! I just couldn’t put it down. I needed to know how things were going to end. But oh my Lord I didn’t expect that!!
Don’t read this book until you have read book 1, they must be read in order!!
Jeez, this is a love triangle of epic proportions!!! Poor Danni!!! I ached for her reading this – Cole has returned, the love of her life who she thought was dead, just as she was moving on with her life with Trace, who has become her second chance at love, one she thought she would never have again.
OMG this is so full of delicious angst throughout this book!!! The push and pull between all three characters – I was addicted, I don’t usually do angsty reads, but I just couldn’t stop!!!
Danni must try and decide who she is going to move on with, but she loves both men in different ways and so goes about dating them both, but without the sex!! Jeez I really felt for Danni, being stuck in the middle and not able to decide between the two of them. How do you decide between someone you lost your heart to against someone that now owns it??? I wen’t back and forth between Cole and Trace throughout this book, unable to decide between them, so how the hell was Danni supposed to decide??!!
The ban on sex gets literally blown out of the water as Cole seduces her in some of the hottest sex scenes ever – whew!!! I quite fancy taking up scuba diving now!!!!
So, secrets start to unravel and things turn a might dangerous, and then that ending!!! OMG I’m not sure how I’m going to survive until the next book!!! I’m pulling my hair out here!!! I’m so on edge after reading this, I need some major alcohol intake!!!! Dear Lord, roll on book 3!!!!
5 utterly angsty hot n steamy love triangle stars!!!
Three means war.
Three sides vying for forever.
My first love.
The bad boy with the dangerous smile and passionate temper draws attention like a lit fuse on dynamite. But his dark molten eyes spark only for me.
My second chance.
Over six feet of Norse god in a tailored suit, he calculates every move and seizes my hungry breaths with an iron fist.
The free-spirited dancer, torn between two men with no resolution in sight.
I tried leaving, staying, refusing, and surrendering.
What options do I have left?
I love two men, and I do the only thing I can. I fight.
I am a complete emotional wreck after reading this!!!
This series is why I don’t read a lot of angsty books – I wouldn’t have missed it for the world, but its going to take me a while to recover from my meltdown, with several bottles of wine thrown in for good measure!!
So this is the final book in the Tangled Lies series, the one with all the answers – maybe?!
In this book Danni is being forced to make a decision, one that will inevitably split her heart and soul in two, as she loves both men, but in completely different ways. Cole is the first love of her life, the one that owned her soul and the one that shattered it into a million pieces. Trace is the man who picked her up and rebuilt her shattered heart and gave her the strength to love again and move on.
In all three of these books I have been rooting for both men in one way or another, unable to finally decide who might just end up winning. I couldn’t decide, nevermind Danni!!!
This has to be one of the most stressful and angst ridden series that I have ever read – I was a sobbing mess, I was pulling my hair out, and I was driven to alcohol whilst reading. It left me in a total mess even when finished, it will be quite a while before I try another love triangle like this again let me tell you!!
Pam has done such a fantastic job on this series, it really does pull you in and doesn’t let you go, even when you have finished. Such an emotionally intense and heart rending story!!
Of course there are some very hot and steamy sex scenes in this, panty melting even!!
But am I happy with the ending?? Well I’m just not sure, but I think so. This was always going to be one of those reads where someone got their heartbroken – I didn’t expect mine to break whilst I was reading it!!
A fabulous series, one I heartily recommend for any angst lovers out there, but just be warned it is one hell of an emotional ride.
