Enjoyable story with plenty of twists. This is a clean romance story where the romantic scenes fade to black after the kissing. I realize some people prefer that type of book and this is certainly one to read. Even without the detailed intimate scenes, this book holds a lot of passion.
Blue, full name Blue Danube, is a great romantic hero. He’s military fit, plays guitar, sings, and writes music. Yeah, he’s easy to fall for. He’s not perfect. He’s made mistakes in the past, but that just makes him more lovable because he’s not conceited.
Keegan is intelligent and independent and isn’t afraid to voice her opinion. However, she’s very naive.
I like the symmetry of Blue and Keegan’s relationship as he writes music and she’s a journalist.
***Beware of Cliffhanger*** Okay, I don’t like cliffhangers. I’m impatient and on a constant hunt for a happily ever after. I most definitely will be reading the next book, Shelter From the Storm, which promises to be the completion of the story.
Two books. One hot and heart-wrenching love story…
Keegan Crenshaw needs a hero. She’s a straight-A student from a famous Oklahoma family and the youngest-ever editor of her college newspaper. She’s got a lot to prove. But she’s got enemies. Someone’s out to get her. Someone’s got her running scared. And she runs right into the arms of a boy named Blue.
Deep down, Blue is still the brave soldier who risked his life for others in Afghanistan. He’s still a hero, even if he no longer believes it. All he wants now, though, is to make music and bury the secret that could destroy his future. Blue tries hard to be a good guy. But he’s wrestling with demons he can barely control. And when Keegan moves into his house and very quickly into his heart, his hard-fought control begins to slip away.
Keegan and Blue can’t stay away from each other, can’t stop thinking about each other. They have a connection–body, mind and soul–they cannot resist. But it will cost them dearly. Secrets have a way of exploding into the light. Sometimes it’s hard to know who’s a hero and who’ll turn out to be a heartbreaker.
Is Blue the love of Keegan’s life, her knight in shining armor? Or will he become an agonizing mistake?
Searing and sexy, Tangled Up in Blue explores the consequences of deception, the meaning of courage and the redeeming value of sacrificial love. It contains strong language and adult situations. It is Book 1 in the Ikana College series.
