Tangled Up in Love

Tangled Up in Love is the first book in a new series by Heidi Betts. From the back cover.~

Ever since Dylan Stone beat Veronica Chasen out of a prime position at the Cleveland Herald, 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.

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 like love...

Tangled Up in Love is the February pick for Jennifer's random musings on-line book club. I loved the chemistry that I felt between Dylan and Veronica from the start of the book. They have been fighting with each other from the moment they met. Veronica's knitting challenge to Dylan sets the stakes higher than ever in their little battle. Veronica knows that without some help, Dylan will probably fail. When Dylan attends Veronica's knitting circle, she is tricked into helping Dylan complete his project. Dylan and Veronica finally give into their passion for one another with explosive results.

I loved that one minute Tangled Up in Love was hot and sexy and the next minute it was laugh out loud funny. It was fun to watch Veronica and Dylan figure out what they both wanted and needed out of life. I really enjoyed reading Tangled Up in Love and look forward to reading the rest of the books in this series, as well as more books by Heidi Betts.
