Book Review: Tangles Up In Love by Heidi Betts

Tangled Up In Love

Summary: Ever since Dylan Stone beat Veronica Chasen out of a prime position at the Cleveland Courier, 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 a lot like love...

Review: I love cute contemporary romances, but throw in a knitting journalist who challenges her super hunky arch nemesis to learn how to knit, and you get one pretty awesome book! 

Ronnie is a hard-headed journalist who is determined to make it in life. The only place she can unwind and be herself is at the weekly knitting group with her friends. Gossiping over colorful yarn and knitting needles helps her forget about her fear of poverty and her annoying journalistic enemy. Dylan loves pushing Ronnie's buttons, but he can't help but deny the attraction he has to the stubborn knitter. When she challenges him to learn how to knit, Dylan doesn't hesitate to prove he accept yet another one of her challenges. When he requests one-on-one knitting lessons, though, yarn isn't the only thing getting tangle up! Ronnie doesn't know what's going on between her and Dylan, and she certainly doesn't know what to do about it.

I love how Ronnie uses knitting as her escape because knitting is my escape too! It's so much fun when Ronnie is at her knitting group and her girls help give her advice on her confusing relationship with Dylan. Speaking of Dylan...can you have any better of a male lead? I love how he knows exactly how to push Ronnie, yet he really cares about what's going on in her life. And his devotion to learning how to knit is definitely a plus. 

Overall, this is a cute chick-lit that may be a little fluffy, but that's just the way I like them! Any knitter who loves a good strong male knitter should definitely pick up this book! It's fun, flirty, and an overall feel good romance!
