Tangeled Up in Love by Heidi Betts

4.5 Stars!!


Book Description: ARE THEY FIT TO BE TIED?Ever since Dylan Stone beat Veronica Chasen out of a prime position at the Cleveland Courier, they’ve been bitter rivals, engaging in a very public war of words in their competing newspaper columns. They routinely challenge each other to go bungee jumping, white water rafting, or into tattoo parlors to see who will wimp out first. But Veronica’s latest taunt may be Dylan’s toughest assignment yet: She dares him to learn to knit.OR WILL DESIRE UNRAVEL THEM BOTH? Dylan is not going to let something his grandmother can do scare him off. He’s man enough to make a scarf—and attend Veronica’s weekly knitting circle. But when the infuriatingly handsome Dylan shows up at the craft shop and charms all the ladies, Veronica starts to get all knotted up in something that feels a lot like love…



My Review: This is the first book by Heidi Betts that I have read and the first book in her Chicks with Stick trilogy. It was very enjoyable and I'm really looking forward to the rest of the series. Veronica and Dylan write columns for two different newspapers. They dare each other to do crazy stunts trying to one up each other. Veronica thinks she has come up with the perfect dare that Dylan will not be able to complete. He needs to learn how to knit within a month! Dylan takes the dare and finds a local knitting group to teach him. Of course he ends up a Veronica's knitting group. When Dylan dares her to to help him with private lessons that's when the sparks fly. If your looking for a fun, easy read that is straight contemporary (there is small bit of paranormal element, but it is a very small piece) then definitely pick this up.


I also found a preview of the next book which will be released in August.....

Loves Me, Loves Me Knot
"Chicks with Sticks" book 2
THIS IS KNOT YOUR AVERAGE LOVE STORY Jenna Langan knows what shewants, and as she tells her best friends after their weekly knitting group, she doesn’t need a man to give it to her…only a few of his best swimmers. And just because her marriage to undercover vice cop Gage Marshall ended badly doesn’t mean he can’t still give her the baby she’s always wanted. In fact, she’s willing to bet a couple of her favorite hand-knit boas that she can tie him up in knots he’ll definitely enjoy…
BUT TRUE LOVE IS MORE THAN JUST SKEIN DEEPAn unexpected seduction is one thing, but stud service? No, thank you. Gage had his reasons for pulling the plug on his happily ever after with Jenna, and nothing that’s happened since their divorce has changed his mind. That is, until Jenna got it into her head to tie him up and drag him down. Now he has no choice but to stick around until he knows for sure if his ex-wife is pregnant. But the more time he spends with Jenna, the more his resolve begins to unravel…
