Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance
Series: The Accidental Billionaire #2
Rating: ⭐⭐⭐☆☆
Recommend to Others?: No

ABOUT: Aiden Sinclair was a commercial fisherman before he suddenly came into his billionaire inheritance—not that he’s complaining. Being a Sinclair does have its perks. But things were simpler before the money. He may have been dirt poor, but he loved his job and fully intended to always come back from the sea to his girlfriend, Skye Weston, so they could move toward something more permanent. Or at least that had been the plan . . . until he returned from a two-month fishing trip to discover that she had moved away and was marrying somebody else. It tore his world apart.

Now Skye’s back in town after nearly a decade. She’s a single mother and just as beautiful as ever. However, for some odd reason, she appears to hate him, when it should be Aiden who wants nothing to do with the woman who dumped him. Unfortunately, more than nine years of separation has done nothing to put a damper on their white-hot chemistry when they’re together. But even if those feelings are real, Skye has been keeping secrets. The truth of the past is about to come to light, and there is so much more at stake than just Aiden’s heart.

 

My Review: Entangled was an okay quick read with mild but steamy romance. Although the premise was interesting and compelling, I think this story could have been so much more. It unfortunately fell flat for me.

Skye and Aiden were an okay couple. They are cute together and wish to somehow rectify their pasts and what could have been. There was little to no character growth and no tension. I actually thought there would be more tension or danger considering who Skye was married to.

There was page after page of Skye detailing what she went through the nine years she was gone. Those parts were info dumps that could have been shortened and better used. Skye dumps a huge emotional baggage on Adien. While I admire the sacrifices she’s made for her daughter, the story slowly started to seem more about Skye and a guilt trip on Adien.

Adien is a typically alpha male with a great but sad backstory. Yet his character kind of fell short. Sometimes things seemed too easy or happened without much resistance. He is right to feel what feels but is pushy at times. He did have some really great moments and I loved how close he and his family are after all they’d been through. I’m kind of interested in reading Noah, the oldest Sinclaire’s, story though.

The only parts/character I liked was Maya, Skye’s daughter. Those scenes were so cute. And the cover is simple but pretty. All in all, Entangled was good but eh.
