Quote-tastic/Review-- Tangled in Texas (Texas Rodeo #2) by Kari Lynn Dell


Look at this amazing cover! It's so dang lick-able. This is my second from Dell and yall she's quick becoming my favorite for emotionally charged and sexy cowboy romances. A few fun quotes for today...

So this first one. I just love the heroine's response. I mean, seriously, I was right there with her. lol
He paused at the door to the arena and glanced over his shoulder as he tucked the ear buds into his pocket. "Coming?"

Not lately, her body whispered. But if you've got a few minutes...
And then this one. Delon is a daddy. His young boy is named Beni. The last little bit made me snort.  
Beni's grin went flat. "I don't like broccoli."

"You don't like anything green that doesn't come in a cereal box," Delon said. "But you have to eat it anyway. Then you can ask Tori nicely if she'll help you with your game."

Wow. He sounded so... fatherly. Like a real dad. Which of course he was, but seeing it in action did odd melty things to her insides.

"Get up here, Beni." Delon's black T-shirt stretched tight across his biceps as he flipped the dishtowel over his shoulder and proped his forearms on the railing. His gaze drilled holes through Beni until the boy heaved a powerful sigh and started up the stairs. Delon gave her security shadow--parked out by the gate-- a brief glance, then focused on Tori. "Sorry. I planned to be done with dinner earlier, but I got held up in the office. Are you hungry?"

"No." But now she felt vaguely guilty that she hadn't eaten her greens. 
 And, okay, one more. This is the heroine and her frenemy and new training partner Swannee. Swannee is one crazy girl and I cannot freaking wait for her book. 

"Well...shit," Swannee said.

"Yep."

"You wanna talk about it?"

"Nope."

"Thank the fucking stars. Fire up that video; let's watch some ropin'."

Oh yes. I'll be reading more from Kari Lynn Dell. Tangled in Texas left me hankering for a trip to Texas to hunt down a cowboy of my very own.

So, years ago these Delon and Tori had a hot and heavy fling and they flubbed it up something fierce. Years later she's recovering from losing her husband and comes back home to recoup only to run into Delon...who happens to be her new physical therapy client and might just be the man she needs to help her move on.

These two. Man. Yall. They're both a bit battered and messed up emotionally. Stubborn and lost. They could drive a girl crazy but I really liked them. On their own and together. I liked seeing them deal with their personal issues-- loss, injury, and battered family relationships. They were sexy and fun and made me laugh more than once and swoon a couple times, too. And boy howdy could they heat things up! I did want to shake the heroine a couple times but things got back on track and had me smiling. So did seeing them with his son. Definitely pulled at the heartstrings.

The big elements were struggles with the rodeo and family. There was a LOT of rodeo speak and while I didn't quite follow it all I still liked seeing their hard work practicing and watching them conquer issues like his injury forcing him to learn a new way of riding. Seeing them overcome and work through damaged family relationships was heartening, too.

All in all, Tangled in Texas was the perfect taste of Texas-- sexy cowboys, fierce cowgirls, the thrill of the rodeo. Everything's bigger in Texas...including the swoon-worthy romance.

Thirty-two seconds. That’s how long it took for Delon Sanchez’s life to end. One minute he was the best bronc rider in the Panhandle and the next he was nothing. Knee shattered, future in question, all he can do is pull together the pieces…and wonder what cruel trick of Fate has thrown him into the path of his ex, the oh-so-perfect Tori Patterson.

Tori’s come home after her husband’s death, intent on escaping the public eye. It’s just her luck that Delon limps into her physical therapy office, desperate for her help. All hard-packed muscle and dark-eyed temptation, he’s never been anything but a bad idea. And yet, seeing him again, Tori can’t remember what made her choose foolish pride over love…or why, with this second, final chance to right old wrongs, the smart thing would be to run from this gorgeous rodeo boy as fast as her boots can take her.
