Entwined cover


10 years. 3,650 days. 87,600 hours. 
That’s how long it has been since I saw my best friend. But who’s counting? Walking away from Luke Thomas was the hardest thing I’ve ever done, but the choice was out of my hands. I left Las Vegas a seventeen-year-old girl, afraid and alone, and returned about the same. I was forced into a situation I didn’t want to be in. Until that day. I haven’t seen him in ten long years, but one look at the man he became and that killer smile, and I knew I would never be the same. 

Life goes on. 
I learned that valuable piece of information at a young age, but sometimes a memory creeps up and smacks me square in the face. Or more accurately, a person. The day my best friend walked away was the day I realized I’d never be the same. My life became work, family, and women, and I was doing great. Then she walked back into my life. One look at the grown-version of Sidney Rogen leaves me breathless and yearning for more. 

But love is never easy. 
And our love story isn’t perfect. 
In a heartbeat, one person can wrap around you so tightly, you’re entwined forever. That’s our love. 



Luke   10 years ago   “So, I’m sure you see why I think we should break up, right? I mean, we’re both heading off to college soon, and I want to experience everything that college life has to offer.” I gape at Jessica, my girlfriend for the past five months. Wants to experience everything? That’s code for ‘wants to sleep around.’ I’m a dude. I know. “And you just had to do this tonight?” I ask, looking back at the doorway that leads inside my house. The same house where my entire family and a good amount of my friends are gathered to celebrate my high school graduation. “Well, I just thought it was best to cut the cord now, you know? Like…just do it.” “Whatever, Jess. If you want to break up now, that’s fine.” “Really?” she asks, twirling her long brown hair around her pointer finger. “You’re gonna be okay?” She gives me those big brown, puppy dog eyes that won over my heart–and my dick–during Christmas break. I’ve known this moment was coming since I started dating Jessica. I didn’t see anything long-term developing with her. Call me an asshole, but I knew she was just someone to help me pass the time during my final year of high school. But I also knew going into this that she felt the same way. I guess, in a way, we both used each other to keep ourselves company until we moved on to the next stage in our lives. “I’m going to be fine, Jess. We both knew it was coming to this eventually, right?” She continues to twirl her hair around her fingers. Why had I never noticed how fucking annoying that was? “Listen, we had a great time. If you’re ever in the Seattle area, look me up, ‘kay? We can maybe spend some time together for ol’ times’ sake.” Her smile tells me exactly what her comment means. She’s looking to hook up again if I’m ever close to where she’s attending college. “Maybe,” I reply with a shrug. As much fun as I’ve had with Jess in the last few months, I don’t see myself reaching out to her anytime in the future. The sex has always been all right, but nothing I see myself driving upwards of eighteen hours to get. There’s plenty of mediocre ass left in Vegas if I’m that desperate for a hook up. And, honestly, as an eighteen-year-old red-blooded male on the verge of experiencing college life, I’m pretty sure I’ll have no problem moving forward from here. “Bye, Luke. It’s been fun,” she says before placing her full lips against mine. The kiss is brief, closed mouth, and lacks the usual tongue and groping we generally partake in. This kiss is goodbye. I watch as she walks away, heading around the side of the house so she doesn’t have to go back the way she came; where my entire family celebrates. Gazing out over the darkened backyard, it’s not lost on me that there’s no going back from here. That I’m finally leaving the only home I’ve ever known. I’ve graduated high school, will start UNLV in a couple of months, and will finally be out from under the controlling thumb of my mother. Ever since I was younger, Blake and I chalked it up to me being the baby of the family for her ever-present hovering and involvement in my life. It’s time for me to grow up and experience life. And I’m starting it without a girlfriend. The slightest sound of something thumping against wood pulls my attention away from the emptiness of night and towards the small fort in the back corner of the yard. Built ten years ago out of pieces of scrap wood we’d find around the neighborhood, the fort was my brother’s and my escape from the house. We’d spend hours upon hours in that thing, playing with GI Joes, having Nerf gun wars, and when we were older, sneaking off to steal our first kisses. But I know the noise coming from inside isn’t from my brother. There’s only one person who still uses that fort: our neighbor, Sidney.


5 Stars!

Lacey Black is back and man did she ends the Bound Together series with a bang... giving readers the best of this series yet. Full of heart, heat, and passion, Lacey wrote a beautiful second chance that made me smile, laugh, swoon, and fall head over heels in love.

Entwined is the third book in this series and can be read as a standalone but for maximum impact and enjoyment, I works read the books in order... crossovers tend to happen with these brothers and they are so freaking delicious.

Sexy. Sweet. Suspenseful. Intense. Passionate. Captivating. Enticing. Flirty. Fun. Smart. Serious.

This book was a little of everything that I love in romance. It gave me a great storyline that hooked me from cover to cover and once it was over... man I'm sure gonna miss these guys and gals.

Sidney and Luke.... the best of friends until life tore them apart. It's been ten years and they are face to face again. But now... it's complicated. Both held secret feelings... Both are closed off to loving again but..... life decides to throw them a curveball. Get ready to be swept off your feet and find the true meaning of soul mates rule Sidney and Luke fall madly deeply in love... again.

I highly recommend this book.

5 Stars!

I was pulled right into this story. The story has laughs, secrets, second chances, and heartbreak.

If you have not read the below I would recommend reading those books(s) first:
Submerged (Bound Together #1)
Profited (Bound Together #2)

This is Sidney and Luke’s story. Sidney and Luke were best friends but the love they had for each other was deeper than just friends. But things forced Sidney to walk away from her best friend 10 years ago, now she is back in town and about to cross paths with her past. Can they figure out what they want from each other before dealing with the pain of the past? Or do they just need a little closure to move on? Can they overcome the past and grab a future or is this the end? 

I felt I could connect with the characters and the story was a great read.

I highly recommend this book.
