Tangled Up In You
Lara Ward Cosio
Gavin is the perfect rockstar front man – moody, confident, and sexy as hell. But no matter how famous he becomes, he can’t shake the heartache of his childhood. Only Sophie can take the edge off.
Sophie falls for Gavin the moment she realizes his swagger is just a front to hide his wounded core. All she wants is to save him from himself. And once she gives him her heart, she never gets it back.
She makes him feel . . . seen; he makes her feel needed. It’s a desperate kind of love, but it’s what works for them.
Until it doesn’t.
When the tabloids get a hold of Gavin’s family secret, the backlash threatens everything he holds dear . . . including his relationship with Sophie. It doesn’t help matters that the band’s gorgeous guitarist is ready to step in and be what Sophie needs.
With everything falling down around them, can Gavin and Sophie hang on to their white-hot connection or will it consume them?
Uncaged Review: Gavin and Sophie met in high school, when Sophie was studying abroad in Ireland, and Gavin and Sophie became inseparable. When Sophie leaves to return to the U.S., she breaks Gavin’s heart, too young to say yes to his proposal. Fast forward – Gavin’s band Rogue, is hitting the big time, and along with his band mates, they are caught up in the rock star lifestyle. When Sophie and Gavin meet again, it doesn’t turn out well, but Gavin seeks her out, and begins their story all over.
This book is quite dark a lot of the time. Sophie and Gavin’s story is almost self-destructive to a point where the reader is smiling at them one minute, and yelling at them the next. When it finally spirals out of control, it’s unclear if they will ever get their connection back on track.
This book does not end their story, it continues on in the next book, but I need to take a breather from this story – as it is a bit drawn out and at times, emotionally draining. Reviewed by Cyrene
