"Look out, world! There's a new cowboy in town." —CAROLYN BROWN, New York Times Bestselling Author


Thirty-two seconds. That's how long it took for Delon Sanchez's life to end. One minute he was the best bronc rider in the Panhandle and the next he was nothing. Knee shattered, future in question, all he can do is pull together the pieces...and wonder what cruel trick of fate has thrown him into the path of his ex, the oh-so-perfect Tori Patterson.

Tori's finally come home, intent on escaping the public eye. It's just her luck that Delon limps into her physical therapy office, desperate for help. All hard-packed muscle and dark-eyed temptation, he's never been anything but a bad idea. And yet, seeing him again, Tori can't remember what made her choose foolish pride over love...or why, with this second, final chance to right old wrongs, the smartest choice would be to run from this gorgeous rodeo boy as fast as her boots can take her.

I received this book for free from Hoopla in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.

Delon Sanchez is sexy, tortured, and lost. Thirty-two seconds was all it took for life as he knew it to change forever. But, in Delon’s case, that might not be a bad thing if he can look past his anger and despair to try something new. If he wants to get back in the rodeo rink, he’s going to have stop playing it safe, throw caution to the wind, and find the fighter in him that’s raring to be set free.

Enter Tori Patterson who’s finally come home. To say she’s the one who got away from Delon would be an understatement. Unfortunately, Tori is as broken as Delon. Can two broken hearts learn how to love, heal, and take a chance again–on each other. Guess you’ll have to read the book to find out.

While I love the secondary characters in Ms. Dell’s Texas Rodeo series, I have to admit there were times that I wanted to smack Violet upside the head for being a jerk. The passion between Delon and Tori was as hot as ever. I loved Shawnee who kept it real because there were times that Tori and Delon both needed a kick in the butt.

Tangled in Texas is full of passion, love, humor, and family. Sometimes in order to move forward, you have to be willing to risk it all.

Rated 4.5 Ravens by the Blackraven!
