Tangled Thing Called Love by Juliet Rosetti
Series: Life and Love on the Lam #3
Publisher: Loveswept on April 29, 2014
Mazie’s boyfriend—photojournalist and sex god Ben Labeck—might be trouble on two very strong, very sexy legs, but he’s got no idea what he’s signing up for when he invites himself along to the family farm in Quail Hollow to meet the Maguires. Mazie knows that bringing a guy home is a recipe for disaster, especially when she’s not sure whether their relationship is serious or just seriously steamy. That goes double when she finds herself reluctantly squeezing back into a bikini and sash for the anniversary of a supposedly cursed local beauty pageant.
All this is wreaking havoc on Mazie’s love life. Suddenly Ben’s too busy playing gentleman farmer on the Maguire estate to indulge in a more discreet kind of play in Mazie’s bed. And when he’s not tilling the soil, he’s digging up dirt on the Curse of Miss Quail Hollow. Maybe that swimsuit competition isn’t such a bad way to get Ben’s attention back where it belongs—and get him to admit that he’s head-over-heels in love with her.
This book includes mature subject matter that may not be appropriate for readers under the age of 18.
Mazie and Ben are at it again, proving that the course of true love never does run smooth, especially when it involves a disappearing beauty queen, two holy terrors with a potato gun, and the coolest grandmother ever to grace a farm.
Now back in her hometown and tasked with babysitting her nephews, Mazie doesn’t expect her maybe sometimes sort of boyfriend Ben to show up at the door. He’s determined to win her back, even if he’s not entirely sure why he lost her in the first place, but nothing with Mazie is ever simple or easy. In fact, it’s about to get crazy in the best possible way.
If ever I was in love with a series… I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book, though I’m a more than a little pissed that I didn’t come across the chance for an ARC to read before the release date. Thank God for Amazon pre-orders.
Mazie’s life hasn’t ceased to be an absolutely wild adventure. With prison behind her and a stay out in her podunk hometown ahead of her, you’d think she wouldn’t be a trouble magnet. But then again, that just wouldn’t be Mazie. From her crazy nephews to the catty pageant queens to the werewolf attack (yes, werewolf, though nothing about the story is supernatural), I loved every second of it. Laugh out loud funny, crazy suspenseful, and 100% sexy, the delivery is flawless, and quirky, clumsy Mazie is just as loveable and entertaining as always. The clever mystery wrapped up in an absolutely insane small town beauty pageant is beyond brilliant, and while I’d normally be rolling my eyes at a couple who can’t seem to get their relationship straight after two previous books, there’s something delightful in the awful communication skills Ben and Mazie have.
I can’t even explain how much I love Mazie and her crazy adventures. Even the scenes that should be terrifying are simply hilarious, infused with a fantastic sense of humor that only Juliet Rosetti can pull off so perfectly! So yes, if you enjoy reading at all, want something fun and quirky and romantic, and are looking for a lighthearted, quick read, you just have to pick up this series.
