One night, that’s all it was supposed to be. Tony—my confidant and the bartender I made friends with when I moved to Emerson Falls, Oregon—pushed me to have some fun, a word I’ve forgotten the meaning of since I was betrayed three years ago. But that deep red hair and those curves on that woman drew me in.
After life-altering sex, I resigned myself to the fact I’d never see her again. But it seems the universe had other plans. Now we work together and I’m feeling things I never thought I could feel again. Before I know it, we’re so tangled up in each other, these feelings I’ve avoided for years come rushing back, and I feel like I’m on top of the world…That is until a ghost from my past threatens to tear my happiness apart once more.
I’m thirty-one and single, again. After catching my boyfriend with his dick in his secretary, I take off and head back home to Emerson Falls, reuniting with my family and my three best friends after years away. An out of character decision of mine to have a one-night-stand leads to the best sex I’ve ever had in my life with a man that makes me want more than just orgasms from him.
Lucky for me, we cross paths again when I realize he’s actually one of my new co-workers. After a push and pull of emotions, he finally admits he wants more with me, and I fall—hard. Just when all the pieces of my life feel like they’re finally falling into place, fate stirs the pot and threatens to shatter our romance. The threads of our lives were woven so tight, neither one of us thought that the edges could fray. Now the question is, can we untangle the mess and find our happily ever after?
After being betrayed by his fiancé and best friend while serving in the Army, Kane relocates to Emerson Falls where he starts working as a history teacher at Emerson Falls High School. Olivia returns home to Emerson Falls after having her heartbroken. Kane and Olivia indulge in a one-night stand with each other not realizing that Olivia is the new math teacher starting at Emerson Falls High School on Monday. When they run into each other Monday morning at school things do not start off on good terms. The pull they have to each other is hard to ignore but Kane’s past is something he is going to have to move fast to make room for Olivia in his future.
Tangled was my first novel by Harlow James and I enjoyed the story from the beginning right until the very final page. The story brought on all the feels with quite a few laughs in between. I truly enjoyed how Kane and Olivia went from one hot night of passion for starting from the beginning almost as enemies and going through the whole courting process. I can not wait to read the next book in the Emerson Falls series to continue to watch Kane and Olivia grow as well as reconnect with all of their friends and family. Tangled is the first novel in the Emerson Falls series which can be read as a standalone or as the beginning of the series and is told from the first-person point of view.
