Book Review: What a Tangled Web by Melissa Brayden
This was an OK end to this series. I think I expected more, but when I ask myself what else, I don’t really have an answer. I related to book one the most because of the death of Joey’s father. And I think Madison was my favorite character of the series, so of course I enjoyed this last installment.
I was really into the premise of this book. I was so excited for what was building up. Madison buying The Bacon and Biscuit right from beneath Clementine. Crushing her dream. But it never quite resulted in what was I was hoping for. I wanted Clementine to hate Madison but be unfairly attracted to her. And I wanted Madison to be falling for Clementine but never being able to get close enough because Clementine wouldn’t allow it. But what we actually get is Clementine giving in a little too easily.
This third book wrapped things up nicely. I was even happy to see the growth and conclusion for the Biddies.
The problem with Melissa Brayden is that she is just so good. There is nothing she can write that I won’t like. I’m positive of it. This book was written extremely well, which is no surprise there. There was a huge amount of chemistry and hotness. And even though I would have liked to have seen a slightly different trajectory of the relationship, it still was better than most lesbian fiction out there.
I received an ARC from Bold Strokes Books for an honest review
