‘Two to Tangle’ is the second installment of the ‘Tangle Valley Romance’ series. This one follows Gabriella Russo, who was hired as head chef at an Oregon winery. She is making masterful dishes from within a food truck while waiting for construction to complete on the restaurant.
Ryan Jacks runs her own business doing construction/project work for places all over town. She has been living the fast life of meaningless hookups and is feeling a bit unfulfilled as of late. She takes on the Tangle Valley restaurant and becomes charmed by the sassy chef.
I enjoyed this one even more than the first, which is unusual for me. When I read series, I end up liking each following book less and less.
I love books where the feelings are there but the main characters try to deny them. Or something happens and they convince themselves that they need to stay away. I also love it when jealousy is the catalyst for characters to confront their true emotions. This book had all of that.
As usual, Brayden delivers with great dialogue, likeable characters, and emotional turmoil.
I recommend this book to people who like to read about romance, wineries, food, bars, friends, construction, jealousy, garages and priests.
I received an ARC from Bold Strokes Books for an honest review
