When nurse Jess Bellamy returns to her hometown for a cousin’s wedding, she hopes to completely avoid her ex and first love, Morgan Price. But Morgan is the best man, and the groom’s best friend, so try as she might, Jess can’t avoid him. Teenage Morgan, she got over. Grown up Morgan is infinitely hotter, infinitely more successful, and infinitely harder to ignore.
When they re-kindle the explosive physical connection between them, Jess hopes they’ve burned it out of their systems. She left everything behind five years ago after her father’s funeral, including Morgan, and she’s leaving again in two days. She had good reasons for going, and good reasons for staying away.
But as Morgan and Jess explore their searing passion during that lost weekend, Jess is tempted by what might have been and haunted by the ghosts of what was. She has two days to decide whether to keep her secrets or keep the only man she’s ever loved.

My Rating: 4 stars
Entwined is an enjoyable second chance romance with a couple who never truly let go of their affection for each other – yet other things got in the way and prevented their younger selves from staying together. Now as adults they are meeting again under the love filled time of a wedding, only to discover that the past really isn’t in the past for either of them.
This story is filled with that “mis” emotion or word – misunderstanding, miscommunication, mistakes and one big secret. While the love that Jess and Morgan still share may be burning hot right now, they still have a lot to get past or through to their happy ever after.
I enjoyed this one for various reasons. One was the clear feeling of seeing the younger couple vs the adult couple. Youth is such a confusing time to begin with, add to that a love that feels as strong as anything an adult would experience but without the maturity… and you will find misunderstandings and separations that probably wouldn’t have happened. It’s easy to play the what if game, but reality has put them together and it’s up to them to make this work between then in the now or walk away for good.
I believe most Romance readers would enjoy Entwined, it’s a solid story, an engaging couple and full of emotions.
