One date with the sexier-than-sin Detective Drake Nash. Simple.
Until you take into account that my brother finally proposed to his girlfriend, so Nonna is on a warpath--and the crazy old bat has Cupid by the balls.
The upcoming mayoral elections has everyone running on full speed, and while I couldn't give any less craps about the corrupt Holly Woods mayor's office, a dead body in the middle of a campaign speech has me thrown right into the middle of it. The victim is close to the mayor, but all he cares about is minimizing the damage to his campaign, so he hires me to work alongside Drake to close the case as quickly as possible.
Bad news for our tentative relationship.
We disagree far more than we agree, but being at loggerheads won't get this murder solved... Or deal with the arrival of someone from his past.
The mysteries behind the murder aren't the only things unraveling, and despite being knee-deep in lies and corruption and bonds so tangled they're almost indecipherable, I have to figure out if I'm willing to fight for Drake the way I do justice...
Or if he'll be my one who gets away.
(TANGLED BOND is the second book in the Holly Woods Files series. Although there isn't a cliffhanger, this book does not stand alone and TWISTED BOND must be read first.)

My second foray into Holly Woods was just as good and amazing as the first. You'd think things would calm down for Noella Bonds but things are nowhere near settled. She's still trying to get away from Detective Drake Nash, her grandmother is still trying to set her up, and a new case has just come out of the woodwork, drawing her back into everything. I loved how interesting and complicated the case was. Every time I thought I had something figured out, there was a new twist or reveal. There was no possible way I could guess the identity of the killer, and I tried. It got to the point where I stopped guessing and just got caught up in the story, and boy was it juicy. There are lots of secrets revealed that left more than Noella shaken. Noella and Drake once again had the same amazing chemistry. I loved the way they didn't back down when it came to their careers, priorities, and even each other. I may or may not have swooned when Drake worried about Noella being in potentially dangerous situations. Okay, I definitely swooned. The two are really passionate and it shows in how they act when they are together. They're still really hot to "watch" and read about. They also have similar large-and-in-charge-personalities. It was interesting watching them figure out what they wanted to be to one another. I liked getting to know their hangups and seeing them try to work around them. I love how family is emphasized in the book. I loved seeing Nonna and Noella interact with her brothers and parents. This book is full of laughs, some tears, and a whole lot of mystery and suspense. I love how Emma Hart managed to make my heart drop as much as she made my sides hurt from laughing. Tangled Bond is the perfect mix of drama, deceit, romance, mystery, and comedy. It's an attention getting page turner and I can't wait for the next book in the series. I wonder what Noella and Drake will have to deal with next!
★★★★★ After reading Twisted Bond I was SURE that Emma couldn't raise the bar any higher, but time and time again she proves me wrong and I've NEVER been more happy to be wrong in my life!! Drake and Noelle's ice and fire relationship is quite possibly one of the best things I have read so far this year and if I thought I loved them before, it's nothing compared to how much I adore them now. They have such explosive chemistry, it jumps off the page and wraps itself around you until you are consumed by it and them, I am addicted to this series in the best possible way. The whodunit storyline is crazily unpredictable, there's always that one little thing that you overlook that is, in fact, the biggest piece to the puzzle! I honestly have no idea how Emma does it, you'd think that something SO unpredictable wouldn't work but when I sat back and thought about it all the links are there you just don't make the connection. These characters have a special place in my heart and I think Droelle might just be my new favourite Hart couple! The Bond boys are their usual overprotective selves and Nonna was on top form as always, the Bond family dynamic is truly amazing!! Thank you for another sensational read Emma!!
