Synopsis:

A deadly accident can take a life in more than one way.

Four years ago, Carlene Adams made a deadly mistake. A tragic accident derailed the future she'd hoped for, taking the life of the man she'd planned to spend forever with.

As a self-imposed penance for her solitary sin, Carlene has given up on every dream she ever had. She has committed to spend every remaining moment trying to make up for that one instance when everything changed.

Then she gets a second chance.

When Carlene meets Nick Johnson, the single kiss they share awakens the desires she shoved aside for so long. Suddenly she wants more than what she believe she deserves. Will she ever see him again? And if she does, what will that mean for her?

A thing of fate.

Leaving the life she built on regret, Carlene waits for fate to intervene. But just as she begins to believe in a fresh start, she's forced to realize a horrible truth—one with the power to send her second chance crashing before it even takes off.

Nick isn't who she thought he was. She isn't the girl he believed her to be, either. Their lives were intertwined even before they met, and if Carlene tells him the truth, she’ll risk tearing them apart—for good.

My Review:

Entangled Moments by Dori Lavelle is a novella with a punch. It tells the story of Carlene who lives in a homeless shelter and is guilt ridden. Something happened to her a few years ago which changed her forever. From a sure and happy woman she became a shell of her former self with no goals in her life and always a sense of a heavy burden of guilt on her shoulders.

It is in this state that she meets a stranger in a church, where she has gone to seek redemption, who somehow affects her like no one has affected her in a long time.

The story starts slowly but soon picks its rhythm. Dori quickly builds an atmosphere of secrecy and tension between Nick and Dori with a simmering attraction in the background which both are trying their level best to ignore.

The characters are beautifully woven and are able to touch the reader's heart with their heart felt emotions. The attraction between Nick and Carlene is sensuous and I was left fervently hoping a happily ever-after for them along with a killer curiosity about the dark secret that Carlene is hiding.

This is a quick and fast paced novella that will keep you on the edge of your seats and like me hopefully you will also feel compelled to finish it in one sitting! :)

The only downside or a disappointment for me was the cruel cliffhanger which left me hanging with an itch to read the next book which is yet to release!

Dori gives the reader a passionate story of love lost and found with life destroying difficulties in between and introduces us with people who are flawed, have made mistakes in the past but are now trying to start a new life.

A sweet story and a compelling narrative, Entangled Moments gets a 4 out of 5 from me and a recommendation that you read this book while I wait eagerly for the next book in this series. :)

I received an ARC of this book from the author, Dori Lavelle and Grapevine Book Tours and I am very thankful to them. The above review is my personal and unbiased opinion.

About The Author:

Dori Lavelle is a mother, wife, and lover of happy endings and mint chocolate. She thinks love and chocolate make such a perfect pair. Give her a great romance novel and a mug of hot chocolate and she'd be one happy woman. Don't forget to leave behind a couch with lots of cushions. And maybe light the fireplace?
