Review of Entangled by Ginger Voight

 When Rachel Dennehy got her heart broken by Drew Fullerton, she returned home to Texas swearing she would never return to California again. But three months later and much to her surprise Drew’s brother, Alex Fullerton shows up at her door pleading for her help with Johnathon, whose behavior is at his all-time worst. Feeling guilty for leaving him and responsible for his downward spiral, Rachel once again finds herself heading to California to get Johnathon back on track. Now living with Alex at his palatial ranch home with him and his son, Rachel resumes tutoring Johnathon. It’s then that she realizes the ramifications that her leaving has caused. Gone is the sweet boy Rachel bonded with so quickly with over a year ago. In his place is an angry, disrespectful child who hates everybody around him and doesn’t mind letting them all know it. To make matters worse as soon as Drew finds out she is back and living with Alex, he shows up and makes it clear that he plans on getting her back, and Drew never plays fair.

As mad as I had been, as hurt and betrayed, Drew still haunted my dreams.

Getting through to Johnathon this time is going to take a lot more time and work. He feels betrayed by all the adults around him who have made promises that weren’t kept. Rachel’s progress with him is much slower this time around especially with both his parents going to court for everything under the sun. Rachel finds herself an unlikely ally in Alex. First impressions aside they find they actually have a lot in common and both just want what’s best for Johnathon. When a near tragedy occurs Johnathon is shaken, and changes his ways. The days he spends at the Ranch, he thrives and happily acts like part of the family. The more time Rachel spends with Alex and his young son Max, the more Rachel realizes she can see herself as a permanent fixture in their life and that scares her. Alex’s feelings for her seem genuine unlike Drew who was using her for his own purposes and gain.

“I want it all, Rachel. Everything. Good or bad. Right or wrong. I just want to be with you.”

Finally succumbing to their feelings for each other Alex and Rachel are happier than they have been in a long time. Rachel realizes she’s found everything she has been looking for in Alex. They agree to keep their romance quiet as to not upset a fragile Johnathon. Johnathon is improving and almost back to his old self again, but he still yearns for that loving family unit he thinks he will never have. Drew is still under the impression that Rachel belongs with him and he is willing to do anything to make sure that happens. As much as she wants to hate Drew she still finds herself shamefully drawn to him. The Fullerton men are pulling Rachel into three separate directions and she finds herself more confused than ever.

Everyone needed something different from me, and I was completely clueless how to meet every need without losing myself in the process.

Her confusion gets her in hot water when she makes a huge mistake with ramifications that will change everything. The thing she wants the most is now the most unlikely, and Rachel finds herself torn between three men she loves and faced with a future that will change her life forever. No matter what she does or who she chooses someone will get hurt, can Rachel make peace with her decision or will she regret it forever?

Entangled is the second novel in the Fullerton Family Saga by Ginger Voight. This is a story about a woman who is in love with two men and a little boy, all who have all altered her life in one way or another. I couldn’t wait to read this book especially because of the way the first one left off. Rachel was broken hearted with what Drew did to her so I couldn’t wait to see what would happen next. Johnathon is heartbroken that Rachel left and broke her promises to him. He is angry and his behavior is atrocious when Rachel first gets back. After a while he comes around but he still has hope that Rachel will move back in to his father’s house so things can go back to the way they were before.  I have to say I love Alex. There was something about him, even in the first book that attracted my attention towards him. You get to see a complete different side of him here, and it’s apparent why Rachel couldn’t help but fall for him. Drew is as domineering as ever. He is determined to get Rachel back and is willing to pull out all the stops to make that happen. He doesn’t play fair and uses the fact that he knows Rachel is still attracted to him to his advantage. I have to say I wasn’t Drew’s biggest fan in this book but I am very intrigued to see where this story is headed. I will be waiting very, very impatiently for the ne next book in this series!!
