Synopsis via Goodreads:

Storm chaser Max Grady can already feel it: there’s a tornado coming to his hometown of Chance, Nebraska. Max is going after it, and the only person he wants by his side is police officer Bree McDermott, fellow adrenaline junkie, his best friend, and the woman Max has secretly been in love with for years. But when a close call with a tornado leaves them lip-locked, Max knows that the danger is only beginning.

Bree is always up for excitement. Her close and sexy encounter with Max is unlike anything she’s felt before, and she wants more. As they work together to help clean up Chance, the air between them crackles with sexual tension. But Bree has a tendency to look ahead to the next thrill, and Max knows it. Now they’re all tangled up as they chase the strongest force of nature on earth: love.

My thoughts:

Tangled Up is the second book in the Taking Chances series. I knew this going in, and after a tiny bit of initial confusion over the timeline, I quickly felt up to speed. The book is set in the small town of Chance, Nebraska (I love a small town setting!). Main characters are storm chaser, hero extraordinaire, and all around nice guy, Max Grady and adrenaline junkie/police officer, Bree McDermott. Friends since childhood, they tried the dating thing as teens and it didn’t work out. This seems to have been more Bree’s choice than Max who seems a little bitter about the whole break up. Either way they are content being travel friends and best buds until during a terrifying moment they find themselves hunkered down in a ditch hiding from a tornado and moving straight from friend zone to third base. As they team up to repair the devastation to their beloved town, things get a little angsty (good angsty, not bad) and sexy .

This was such a fun story. I don’t think I have ever read a book about storm chasers and thought that aspect was super cool. I really enjoyed both main characters and their team of friends (who I assume we see more of in books one and three). The setting was exactly what I look for in a contemporary romance (small town, quirky characters, everyone knows your business). I loved the second chance at romance theme. Max and Bree are really perfect together.

Minor peeve would be: Max was a little frustrating at times. He just couldn’t let a good thing happen and accept Bree for who she is. He was overanalyzing everything and seriously needed to stop obsessing over his knee. Goodness! I get it though (especially with what happened on one of their adventure vacations). I was just kind of tired of hearing him whine. Thankfully....he eventually pulled his head out of butt and got it together :)

I am thrilled to have discovered the author. I've read another of her books since finishing Tangled Up and she does not disappoint.
