    Oh man; Tangled in Texas. The title says it all. These two have a past, but neither one put their desirers out their and in the end she splits. Fast forward several years and Tori is back in Texas trying to move on with her life after the death of her husband. Delon is trying to deal with the injury that has all but ended his career as a bronc rider. Toni and Delon both are a bit messed up emotionally, stubborn, and lost. I liked Delon and Tori.

I liked seeing them deal with personal issues: loss and family, injury and family, and their past. Their romance is a slow build and it works. They have a lot to work through and get past before they can find that special place in each others life. Two broken halves of a whole! We get a lot of the rodeo aspect, the life and how it runs. We see how hard they practice, mess up, and conquer to win. I really liked seeing Tori make a friend in Swannee. It was nice to see them connect as a team for the rodeo and off as friends. Family was a big element in this novel. Both have issues with their families. It was nice to dig deeper into Delon and Tori’s families. To see them work through those issues they have and become stronger. Tangled in Texas was perfect. I had a delightful time and am looking forward to reading more in the Texas Rodeo series. Sexy cowboys, fiery cowgirls, and thrilling rodeos. Rated: 4 Stars

    I really liked this second chance romance and really liked how Delon and Tori really had to get to know each other this time around. It wasn't all lust and they really started to see who the other person really was. Some of the details around the roping etc were completely outside of my interest group, but the author conveyed this aspect of the characters nicely. This was my first book by Kari Lynn Dell and I would read more from her.

The quick of it is that years ago these two had a fling but neither was willing to put their desires for more out there and one day she just up and left for another state to make a life for herself. But now years later she's recovering from losing her husband and comes home only to run into Delon. The one man who could get her feeling again and maybe moving on. But oh they have to get past some resentment and all kinds of other hurdles that get tossed in their way. These two. Man. I was real glad for her pseudo-friend Swannee who on ocassion would have enough-- just like me-- and make the two sit down and figure their shit out. They were both a bit messed up emotionally, both a bit stubborn and both a bit lost so it could take them a spell to come around. But I really liked them. On their own and together. I liked seeing them deal with their personal issues-- loss and family on her part, injury and family on his part. And with their past. They were sexy and fun and made me laugh more than once and swoon a couple times, too. And whew they could heat things up. Noms! You get a lot of rodeo talk since both are involved in different ways. I still can't quite figure out how their activities look and will probably end up on Youtube to figure that out but I didn't mind reading about it. Their hard work practicing, messing up and conquering the things holding them back. Family was a big element, too. Man both of them had some issues with their families and it was heartening to see them work through those and become stronger units in the end. All in all, Tangled in Texas was the perfect taste of Texas-- sexy cowboys, fierce cowgirls, the thrill of the rodeo--and the 'everything is bigger in Texas' attitude. Including the romance.

    Kari Lynn Dell is truly weaving her way into becoming one of my most favorite contemporary authors, ever. She nailed it!! When she quoted what I have always said all my life " Bareback Riders Get ready", when I read that in this book, it was like déjà vu. This book is really an outstanding, very entertaining book and so many of the things she talks about, I'm so familiar with, the rodeos in specific towns, equipment used, roping lingo, even professional rodeo Cowboys that I've known and one who Kari Lynn Dell is truly weaving her way into becoming one of my most favorite contemporary authors, ever. She nailed it!! When she quoted what I have always said all my life " Bareback Riders Get ready", when I read that in this book, it was like déjà vu. This book is really an outstanding, very entertaining book and so many of the things she talks about, I'm so familiar with, the rodeos in specific towns, equipment used, roping lingo, even professional rodeo Cowboys that I've known and one who actually lives in my hometown, Stephenville. This book is so spot on with the rodeo world. It's truly a treat for someone like me to read, Kari Lynn Dell is someone who gets it, understands it, because she lives it. The book delves into the lives of two individuals who are brought back together to face the pain staring them in the face. Delon is wounded not only physically but mentally. After suffering a horrific bareback riding accident that crippled up his knee, punctured his lung, and ended his season career as the world champion contender. He's trying to just keep his head above the water. Tori has returned home to the Texas Panhandle to try and reclaim her life back after her husband's death. She's wounded, hurt, and trying to patch her life back together, without her prestigious Daddy's name getting in the way. Can these two lost wounded souls find their way back into each other's lives and rekindle a romance that once tore them into shreds? Absolutely a phenomenal book that will pull you in, have you cinching up, and holding on tight for the riveting conclusion.

    2.5 stars I am always looking for sorbet, so when I saw this synopsis I was sold on the idea of a rekindled romance. The cowboy part was a bonus. I liked Tori and Delon well enough. They're both a little head shy and a lot stubborn. There's a lot of history between them and it took a really long time to work it out.

I would seriously read a book of hers. The writing was a bit dense and it seemed to get a little repetitive. There was a lot of miscommunication and that drives me crazy. Eventually I just stopped caring about Tori's roping or Delon getting back on a horse. I wanted more of them talking and more sweetness between them. Overall, I enjoyed parts of it, but not everything. I am mildly interested in future books, but it would depend on who it focused on. **Huge thanks to Sourcebooks and NetGalley for providing the arc free of charge**

    5 stars Delon and Tori were sweethearts (sex partners, since sweethearts connotes a relationship outside of sex?) years ago, and then she left without a word. Since that time, Delon has fathered a child, become more famous for riding broncs, and been bucked off and had a potentially career ending injury.

Even though she grew up in the public eye, since her father is a 5 stars Delon and Tori were sweethearts (sex partners, since sweethearts connotes a relationship outside of sex?) years ago, and then she left without a word. Since that time, Delon has fathered a child, become more famous for riding broncs, and been bucked off and had a potentially career ending injury. Tori has been married, widowed, and has come back home to get away from the scrutiny that followed her after her husband's death. Even though she grew up in the public eye, since her father is a senator, she just can't deal with the type of judgemental attention that is afforded to her after that event. Delon walks in to find out his new physiotherapist is none other than the woman who walked away and left him reeling. So along with him dealing with having a life changing injury, Delon also has to deal with Tori, and the feelings that he never dealt with before. Tori is back in the area where she grew up, determined to make a life for herself, and to start team roping again, in spite of the fact that everyone knows her as a spoiled little rich girl. She is determined to keep things civil between herself and Delon, in spite of their history, and is still trying to get over the death of her husband. As Delon and Tori get to know one another again, or for the first time, really, they realize that the other person has issues that they are dealing with, not just from their past, but with what they are going through in the present, too. I really, truly don't understand how this author is not more popular. Her books are well written, with interesting characters. It has been well documented, or I've lamented it long and loudly enough that it *should* be well documented, that I cannot really write a review for books that I really love. Basically, when I go to write a review, the only words that come to mind are along the lines of "me love book. Book good." So, with that in mind, let me just say this: if you want a cowboy romance about real cowboys and cowgirls, to understand the mindset and what they go through, read this. The love, pain, frustration, determination, fortitude, sacrifice, heartbreak, training that they go through every day is in this book. The amount of commitment that they have to their job and to their sport is phenomenal, as is the strain it puts on their families and friends, and it is in this book. There are friendships developed, romances rekindled, and family ties strengthened in this story. The small community with both the pros and cons are present. I cannot iterate enough how good the writing is, how clearly each and every character comes across, and even if you don't necessarily see anything from their perspective, you know why they are doing what they are doing. Everything makes sense in a "real world person" kind of way, which means that everyone has their foibles and their annoyances, but they actually have to figure out how to get along, just like they would in the real world. Seriously. Read the book.

    This is fast becoming an addictive series. This book features Delon Sanchez, the father of Beni from the first book. He has been badly injured at a rodeo and generally feeling sorry for himself.

This book features Delon Sanchez, the father of Beni from the first book. He has been badly injured at a rodeo and generally feeling sorry for himself. He also can't believe that he is following in his older brother Gil's footsteps even now. Learning to bronc ride, falling for a rich girl way out of his league, and destroying a promising career with a stupid accident. Now he's working for the family trucking business and realising that Gil has taken control. Tori Patterson was the rich girl that got away, the shiny daughter of the state Senator, now she's back but a whole lot different. Gone is the bronco Barbie with the bleached blonde hair and electric blue eyes, now she's quieter, less dramatic looking and Delon's new physiotherapist. But as the mistakes of the past are brought to light can Delon and Tori make a new future under the spotlight of the press, or will pride and prejudice keep them apart once more? I didn't think much of Delon in the first book, nothing bad, just not much personality but ho-boy he comes into his own now. I loved his drive and determination and love for his son. Recommended for anyone who likes a slow-burn romance with lots of rodeo-style action (even though Delon can't compete because of his injury), great characters and believable storylines.

I loved the writing and characters that populated it. Admittedly I wanted Wyatt to be next up on the chopping block because, well, it’s Wyatt, but was more than happy to see what Fate would throw Delon’s way after what happened to him and I wasn’t disappointed. Tangled in Texas is more than a simple second chance romance, it’s about two people coming to terms with what Fate has thrown at them and deciding if they will take make a concerted effort to live the life they want or not. With his bronc riding future up in the air, the family he’s made with the Jacobs clan changing it’s composition and his uncertainty of his place at Sanchez Trucking, the family business, Delon feels as if his entire world is crashing down around him and turns him into someone even he doesn’t recognize. It took me a while to warm up to Delon, I understood and empathized with the uncertainty he felt about where he was in his life, but man could he hold on to a funk like a pro. Thankfully he does pull his head out of his ass with a little help from outside forces, it’s a slow and painful process, but it happens and what is uncovered is a sweet, thoughtful, sexy man who will go that extra mile for those he cares about. Tori has spent the majority of her life being viewed through the lens of those she is connected to instead of for who she is on her own. She has accepted that fact and rolled with it, but has also made sure to march to the beat of her own drum when she could. With the unexpected death of her husband, she has decided that it is finally time to truly stand on her own two feet and live the life she wants. I adored Tori. She was sweet, outspoken and I loved how she was doing the things that made her soul happy as she works to figure out just who she is and where she wants to be. This is a second chance romance, but if you are expecting, and wanting, any sort of insta-ness to happen then you’ll be sorely disappointed. What goes on between Delon and Tori falls firmly on the slow burn side of the coin and I quite frankly loved that fact. They both had things they needed to sort through and were in no way ready for a romantic relationship, but thanks to their professional relationship they have the opportunity to get to know who the other is now and find that the connection they felt all those years ago hasn’t disappeared and that they really like who the other is now. But as with their first go around, communication is not their strong point, thankfully they have quite a few people ready to step in and kick some sense into them when they didn’t know they needed it. They both make mistakes and end up doing stupid things, but I loved how things worked out in the end. As with the first book, I loved the supporting cast of characters, but my favorite this time around was Shawnee (I really do want to be her when I grow up, though I think we’ll leave the roping to her). Her lack of edit button and telling it like it is was a breath of fresh air and I am thrilled that we’ll be getting her book next. Beni was precocious as ever and Fudge and Muella’s antics had me chuckling. Wyatt, who was my favorite from Reckless, does get a little page time in this one and yet still made an impact. I loved getting to know Gil better, spending time with the Jacobs clan, and meeting Tori’s family. The writing was engaging and though the pacing at times dragged a bit due to the inner monologuing of the characters, I can’t help but respect the author’s dedication to giving the characters time to grow and figure things out in a realistic way. While I’m not well versed in all that goes into the various rodeo events and will admit that some things went right over my head, but it’s obvious Ms. Dell knows her stuff (check out her FB page if you don’t believe me) but also knows how to bring it to vibrant life on the page. If you’re looking for a slow burn, character driven cowboy romance with well developed characters that you won’t want to say goodbye to when the book ends, then give this series a go because you won’t be sorry ~ Copy provided by the author via NetGalley ~

She balances it out with a little light humor and how can a heart walk away from such sweet tales.

Tangled in Texas by Kari Lynn Dell is a delightfully charming second chance at love romance between an injured bronc rider and a physical therapist. Although this latest release is the second installment in the Texas Rodeo series, it can be read as a standalone, but I HIGHLY recommend the previous novel as well. With his rodeo career hanging in the balance, Delon Sanchez is determined to do whatever it takes to regain mobility in his injured kneee. Stunned to discover that his new physical therapist is Tori Patterson, the woman he had a fling with seven years earlier, he tries to put aside his reservations in order to achieve his goals. At the same time he is trying to rehabilitate his knee, Delon is trying to come to terms with the fact that Violet Jacobs, the mother of his son, Beni, is involved in a serious relationship with bullfighter Joe Cassidy. Watching his dream of the three of them eventually becoming a family disappear, Delon is already angry and bitter as he tries to understand where he fits in his family-owned trucking business. With so many difficult changes occuring his life, is Delon in any position to act on his still simmering attraction to Tori? The daughter of a well-liked Texas Senator, Tori managed to escape the limelight when she married Wyoming roper, Willy Hancock. A year and a half after Willy's death, she moves back to the TX Panhandle in order to live a quiet life out of the public eye while she still continues grieving his loss. In her years away from Texas, Tori has really come into her own and she is now a little outspoken and a whole lot more confident. Still a little numb from the sudden death of her beloved husband, she is shocked out of her comfortable and rather sterile life when she becomes reacquainted with Delon. Tori is no longer content to sit back and quietly accept whatever he is willing to give but is Delon ready to stop playing it safe and risk his heart? Although both Delon and Tori have moved on since their relationship abruptly ended years earlier, they are both quite stunned to discover their burning hot desire has not waned. However, when they first meet again, neither of them is ready to do act on their passion. Tori is still picking up the pieces of her life, but emotionally, she is in a much better than Delon is at this point. He is not much for introspection so Delon ignores his feelings about the things that are bothering him. However, with so many changes in his life out of his control, his anger is eating away at him. Unwilling to concede that his expectation of becoming a "real" family with Violet and Beni has always been unreasonable, Delon is feeling displaced and out of sorts as Violet's relationship with Joe continues. Meanwhile, an unexpected situation with Tori's family thrusts her back into the public eye just as she and Delon begin dating. As they find themselves falling back into a familiar pattern, Tori continues to coast along without making too many changes to her life. She is much more outspoken about what she wants but her inertia is doing just as much harm to their fledgling romance as Delon's unconscious decision to play it safe is. Their unresolved issues, individual insecurities and an unwillingness to honestly and openly discuss their needs and desires eventually becomes a huge obstacle. Will Tori and Delon be able to repair the damage to their relationship before it is too late? Or will their emotional baggage prevent them from making the changes they need to live happily ever after? Tangled in Texas is another well-written and charming addition to the Texas Rodeo series. Once again, Kari Lynn Dell pairs up two emotionally wounded and somewhat vulnerable characters with realistic problems to overcome. Flawed yet immensely appealing, Delon and Tori are endearing protagonists that are easy to like and root for. Old and news fans are going to absolutely love this sweet yet very sensual contemporary Western romance.

    I thought I had already written a review for this one (since I'm now on Book 5), but I guess I didn't. I don't remember a whole lot about the book other than it was a decent read. Tori and Delon were both stubborn, although Tori had a lot more to lose than Delon it seemed.

Tori was the daughter of a popular U.S. Senator and her husband had died a year or so before she moved back to Texas. She was guarded, and rightfully so. Delon was injured during a rodeo in the previous book and he's back home licking his wounds and trying to recover - he was feeling pretty sorry for himself and it was really sad to see him go into that depressed state. He and Tori had a fling when they were college-age and that ended abruptly. Then Delon got Violet pregnant and now the cute Beni is in the picture. So when he discovers that Tori is his new physical therapist, he's not sure what to think, but she's his only chance at recovery and getting back to his old rodeo self. They have chemistry and it's obvious that their feelings never went away despite all the years between. They were each other's first heartbreak it seems, but they both try to keep their distance and not get too attached. Eventually they come to their senses and get their HEA and it's cute to see how Tori plays a role in Beni's life. I loved Tori's dad - he turned out to be an awesome guy (and proves himself useful in later books in the series).

Anyway, he was a nice sweet guy. Tori is the daughter of a senator, but she wanted to go her own way and that way takes her to Delon since he needs psychical therapy. I liked her, even if her story was sad. She was a widow and well it was just sad. But it was good to see her work through it and try to move on. There is tension, romance, and family. Her family, his family, his extended family, they all have their parts to play (oh and his brother should get a book.) I enjoyed the ride. Narrator Johanna Parker I liked how she did the voices, she had a nice low voice for the men and it never felt strange. And her women voices were good too. She got the Texas thing right, well at least in my head it sounded good ;) I liked listening to her and that is all I need.

I enjoyed the romance, and the family stuff made me tear up again and again. I am so glad how it all worked out, and will love spending more time with these people.

Will he compete again after his horrible accident? Tori being his therapist made the situation complicated, but I felt it was handled in a way I could accept. They knew each other from before, and did decide on working together regardless. I also really liked how her first husband was clearly a great guy whom she loved dearly. Both main characters have to process some dramatic life changes and loss, and it was all so well written and realistic. All the characters are well fleshed out and very different from each other. The differences between the couple from the first book to this couple even played a part in the story. I am learning so much about the sport in this series, it is like getting the inside scoop. I was very sad for her wonderful horse being kept by himself. The author made some jokes about it, and the descriptions were funny, but horses should never ever have to live alone. They need other horses to be content and healthy. Luckily he got his HEA too. This series is world class. And the narration was again very, very good.

    There were times in this book when I got so angry and frustrated on Delon’s behalf that I almost had to give up. Yes, he’s not always acting in a mature fashion, but after everything he’s recently lost, there were a few people who could have been a bit more understanding. Or more thoughtful. I stuck with it, because I cared about Delon and I wanted him to find a way through his accident to happiness. And I’m so glad I did, because while it wrung me out emotionally at times, I really enjoyed this There were times in this book when I got so angry and frustrated on Delon’s behalf that I almost had to give up. Yes, he’s not always acting in a mature fashion, but after everything he’s recently lost, there were a few people who could have been a bit more understanding. Or more thoughtful. I stuck with it, because I cared about Delon and I wanted him to find a way through his accident to happiness. And I’m so glad I did, because while it wrung me out emotionally at times, I really enjoyed this book. Delon has gone through life being the good guy, the calm, quiet one who never makes a fuss. Because he knows making a fuss doesn’t get him anywhere. He has his plans and while his dreams might not be as wild and great as some, he’s happy with his life. Until a rodeo accident takes it all away from him in one fell swoop. The family he once made himself a part of doesn’t have room for him anymore, the future job he always planned to take now belongs to his brother, even his son thinks his mom’s new boyfriend is more fun than his dad these days. And on top of all of this, Delon’s injury might well have ended his rodeo career. To say he’s dealing with a lot in this book would be an understatement. He’s been put through an emotional wringer and is badly wounded by all of it. He’s no longer the person he used to be and he’s struggling to adjust. True, others around him have their own troubles – and perhaps if I’d read the previous book I might have been more sympathetic (towards Violet in particular, because I really didn’t like her most of the time) – but there were times I wanted several people to just stop, think about things and give Delon a little bit of a break. Yes, he behaves badly, but there are provocations throughout. Violet in particular knows just what buttons to push. Then there’s Tori, who has her own tricky history with Delon, but who has seen sides of him he’s never dared to show anyone else. On the surface there are many differences between them, not least because she comes from a wealthy family, but they have plenty of similarities too. She has spent her whole life longing to be part of something, while Delon has always hidden who he really is in order to fit in. They’re both troubled and guarded, emotionally wounded and not looking for anything deep and meaningful, yet they’re also a perfect match. They understand each other better than anyone else and connect so easily. I loved reading about their relationship, even if there were times when I wanted them both to relax and let go a little further. They don’t make things easy for themselves, and nor do certain people in their lives, but it made everything so much more satisfying when they worked. There’s also a wider cast of characters keeping things interesting around them. I particularly loved Delon’s son, but I liked his brooding older brother too and found Tori’s father and sister quite intriguing. In all I enjoyed this. It isn’t always easy emotionally and it made me feel angry on several occasions, but that’s because I was so invested in the characters and cared about what happened to them. I’ll definitely be looking out for more from this series. I can’t wait to see who is up next. (ARC provided by the publisher via NetGalley.)

    For an introduction to this author's writing, I could not have hoped for a better story to read. Ms Dell is a truly gifted storyteller, and a genius with imagery...I can't count the times I felt I was part of the action, whether it was at the rodeo arena, or in a Freightliner riding down the highway. I actually had to look up bare back bronc riding just because it all was so real I had to get a visual so I made sure I had it in my head as I was reading. There was a subtle humor coming throughout For an introduction to this author's writing, I could not have hoped for a better story to read. Ms Dell is a truly gifted storyteller, and a genius with imagery...I can't count the times I felt I was part of the action, whether it was at the rodeo arena, or in a Freightliner riding down the highway. I actually had to look up bare back bronc riding just because it all was so real I had to get a visual so I made sure I had it in my head as I was reading. There was a subtle humor coming throughout the story, through the characters' inner monologues, or the whip smart/wry dialog. Some of the most hilarious moments involved the lovely creature referred to as "the cat". Beni holding that sweet little creature (???) had to be the funniest out of the entire book. The true surprise character was Shawnee...hilariously blunt and truthful, and as true a cowgirl as any could hope to be. I'm hoping this isn't the last I see of Tori and Delon, they are one couple that will stay in my heart for sometime to come...as a book boyfriend, Delon is the epitome. This book was provided by the Publisher and Netgalley, I am voluntarily providing my honest review.

    Tangled in Texas hits so many buttons on my interest list it’s almost like the book was written for me. I love romance, cowboys and cowgirls, ranch life, rodeos (I’ve attended them since I was a toddler), and did I mention romance? While this is the second book in a series it can be read as a standalone book. I say that with confidence since I have not read the first book (yet!) but enjoyed this second one immensely. There are indeed many characters who populate the story, including the MCs, Delon Tangled in Texas hits so many buttons on my interest list it’s almost like the book was written for me. I love romance, cowboys and cowgirls, ranch life, rodeos (I’ve attended them since I was a toddler), and did I mention romance? While this is the second book in a series it can be read as a standalone book. I say that with confidence since I have not read the first book (yet!) but enjoyed this second one immensely. There are indeed many characters who populate the story, including the MCs, Delon and Tori. Some of my favorite secondary characters are Delon’s five year old son Beni and Tori’s nemesis/roping partner Shawnee, and the cat-from-hell. Before I go too far, let me introduce the MCs. Delon is a bareback rider who, as we begin the story, is sidelined with a crushed knee that may prevent him from competing ever again. Delon is part of the Sanchez family that owns a trucking company. In fact, Delon lives in a small apartment over the company’s shop. Delon’s brother Gil runs the company, sometimes to the consternation of their father. Delon is seen by the Jacobs family as part of their clan, for reasons that apparently were more extensively discussed in the previous book, but nevertheless are well grounded here. Violet, the mother of Delon’s four year old son Beni, is now living with Delon’s best friend Joe, with an eye toward marriage. Let me digress a little bit with Beni. This little boy character is the best written profoundly gifted child I’ve ever seen in a romance novel. He isn’t cocky and isn’t trying to be a miniature adult. He’s a kid but he’s also a genius who is able to learn quickly and figure things out for himself. He’s a loveable little boy and I enjoyed him. Tori is the daughter of a prominient politician and as such everything she does is inspected and dissected by the ever-present media, small town busybodies, rodeo insiders, and political backstabbers. As Tori tells it, people will notice how much toilet paper she buys and use that to speculate on her health, which will then get published. Five years ago, sick of the spotlight and manipulation by her parents, she ran away to Wyoming where she met and married a Wyoming rodeo cowboy, breaking Delon's heart in the process. She also became one of the best sports physical therapists before returning to Texas a widow. There’s a good almost undercover subplot about when is a hero an accidental hero, and is he still a hero in that case? Tori takes on Delon’s rehab, initially trying to get him to accept his limited mobility with more comfort, and then helping him try to return to the rodeo arena in his favorite sport. It’s a very interesting description of a crippling injury and what modern medical technology can and cannot do. There are several other subplots and I enjoyed all of them but won’t spoil the story by describing each one. I will say, this novel has a wonderful HEA ending that is hard earned and never predictable. This book has impressed me and I’ve read so many romance novels, especially cowboy romance novels, a favorite genre, it is very hard to amaze me with an author’s talent in developing characters and plot. Make no mistake, Kari Lynn Dell has done that emphatically.

    Delon woke up mad at the world. No difference than any other morning in the last four months. He had been hurt at the end of the best rodeo season Delon ever had. He had been trampled by a horse and his lung collapsed and his leg was messed up also. Delon was to see a new physical therapist. His sessions were getting to be very frustrating that only showed the lack of progress. Delon had a son with Violet named Beni.

Tori was a rich girl and had walked on the other side. The voice- Tori’s voice- whispered through Delon’s memories for seven years. Delon had been one of the top bareback riders for years. Tori was sure she could be Delons therapist but she would do her best to be successful with him. Tori had been married but her husband died. Delon’s father owned Sanchez Trucking. Delon’s brother was leaving for North Dakota so Delon agreed to take his load so it didn't affect the business. Delon feels he is different and doesn’t even really like himself. Delon and Tori were taking the time to really getting to know each other and go slowly into a relationship. I liked this story . a lot. I liked Tori and Delon together and I rooted for them. I love how they slowly went into a relationship even though the attraction was still very strong.But they are taking time to get to know each other. I loved Shanee as a character and felt she added to the story. This did drag at times.at times. This did make me chuckle at times. It did get a little repetitive at times and a little confusing . But i really liked the characters and the ins and outs of this story and I recommend.

    "Tangled in Texas" begins after Delon has fallen off his horse in the rodeo and suffered severe injuries. Although he is lucky to be alive, he is mourning the lack of movement in his knee- he may not be able to compete again if he cannot regain its motion. As he heads to physical therapy, he is shocked to find his ex- the one that got away- is going to be his therapist. Tori has returned to town a year after her husband's death, completely different than the woman she was when she dated Delon. S "Tangled in Texas" begins after Delon has fallen off his horse in the rodeo and suffered severe injuries.

As he heads to physical therapy, he is shocked to find his ex- the one that got away- is going to be his therapist. Tori has returned to town a year after her husband's death, completely different than the woman she was when she dated Delon. She has lost the drapings and frills and is just herself. While they are both denying the attraction that still remains years later, they are also both nursing a lot of hurt over the way it ended. She seemingly disappeared into the night- and he didn't come after her. Both are also still going through a tough time due to the circumstances of life, but they work together on improving Delon's knee and expediting his recovery. This book is filled to the brim with sexual tension, both from Tori and Delon's third person limited perspectives. However, the misunderstandings and back-and-forth ended up driving me a little crazy. Despite maturing over several years (presumably) and their impromptu counseling session provided by a third character, they maintain the same lack of communication problems that led to their break-up in the first place, and I didn't feel like their relationship was growing up much. Needless to say, I groaned in frustration quite a bit while reading this book. That being said, I definitely bumped up the rating because there are some really amazing side characters. Shawnee was by far my favorite with her no-nonsense attitude and sly comments. Beni (Delon's 6-year-old son) was a close second with his insightful comments and general cuteness. Gil, Delon's brother, was also a unique character who brought a lot of wisdom and heart to the story. And don't worry, despite all the mishaps/misunderstandings, this has a HEA! Please note that I received a copy of this book from a giveaway. All opinions are my own.

    Let me start by saying that the first thing that caught me was the cover of the book. It's hot and beautiful, unlike the story. I was so glad when I was done with this book. This was a snore fest. The characters were boring and the pacing of this book was excruciating. This book tells the story Delon and Tori, college sex buddies I guess, and how they reunited after years of being apart.

This book tells the story Delon and Tori, college sex buddies I guess, and how they reunited after years of being apart. Tori, born with a silver spoon, meets Delon at a college party and two hours later, they have sexual relations. ;) After months of having a sexual relationship, Tori takes off to start a new life and leaves Delon behind. Unaware of the reasoning behind her disappearance, Delon falls into a deep depression and makes a "baby" with his childhood friend. After years of not seeing each other, Delon gets into a horrible rodeo accident which causes him to have surgery and to see a physical therapist. Guess who the physical therapist is? It is Tori, of course, and from there the story takes place. I was genuinely confused because of the style of writing that the author uses. There is barely any conversation between characters and there is a huge lack of quotation marks. The writing is so jumbled together and I can not tell the difference between the text messages exchanged or the conversation that is taking place. The scenes constantly jumps around and I am not told where or when. This book just confused me and I hate being confused. The chemistry between Delon and Tori was non existent and Delon was a prick throughout the whole book. He was not a prick to Tori, but he was a prick to himself. Throughout the entire book, Delon is feeling sorry for himself and he was not likable nor was Tori. The book was wordy, full of half sentences from the characters, the characters talked to themselves for most of the book, and I was just bored. I just did not like this book. P.S Cowboys are always hot.

Delon Sanchez one minute is at the top of his professional career and the next his prorodeo career may be over due to a shattered knee.

He shows up to his first physical therapy appointment to find that the new therapist is his ex that broke his heart. Could his luck get any worse? Can he let Tori Patterson try to help him get his knee back to it post accident condition and save his career. This is the only woman he's ever loved, the woman that just picked up and left town without a goodbye or saying why and shattered his heart. The only woman, or persin for that matter, he's ever let in and get to know the true Delon Sanchez. Tori Patterson has returned to the Texas Panhandle, where she grew up, hoping to have a life here out of the public eye. She's from one of the most prestigious families in the Texas Panhandle. A family thats always in the tabloid news. Tori is still broken hearted from her husbands sudden tragic death. She's wanting to progress in her hobby she started with t her husband, team roping. She is wanting to help people through her career choice as a physical therapist. She doesn't just want to help Delon regain his post accident abilities but she wants to help him be even better than he was before. Can these two lost soles with broken hearts work together and get over what happened between them and in their pasts? This second book in the Texas Rodeo series also gives us more of the romance between Joe and Violet. This is an awesome book and a must read, especially if you've read the first in the series, Reckless in Texas. I can't wait to read the third book, Tougher in Texas!

    I must say after reading the first book I was NOT looking forward to Delon's book...reason why you might ask? Well in the previous book we only got to see Delon in Violet's eyes and to be honest she made you feel like Delon was the bad guy. Always trying to ruin her relationship with Joe (which yeah he could have done things differently where Joe was concerned) but again you only at that point had Violet's POV on what happened with Delon.

This book opened up Delon's POV and MAJOR insecurities that he has had for years. Issues that had to do with Tori leaving before. I lost respect for Violet in this book...she destroyed that relationship between Delon and Tori when they were younger...she knew what she was doing when she said what she did to Delon back then. Shawnee was a completely crazy lady but I really liked her in this book. I love how she treats Tori in this...it keeps Tori grounded which she needs with her mother. I am excited to see Shawnee fall...expecially for Cole. I need this book now, ugust 1st isn't coming quick enough.

    This is the first time, I've read Kari Lynn Dell. Although I enjoyed reading this story about Delon Sanchez and Tori Patterson reconnecting years later after a brief, but intense, relationship, the first 1/3 of the book was difficult to push through.

By the time, the couple start over, a lot of water has flowed under the bridge, so to speak, with Tori recently widowed and Delon a father, though not married to the mother of his child. In the end, I'm glad I continued to read this novel. The ending is rewarding because both Tori and Delon admit past mistakes and let go of assumptions. They worked so hard for their happier for now ending that I felt overjoyed for them. I'm looking forward to reading Kari Lynn's other novels.

Delon is out of commission for bareback riding due to the accident suffered in Reckless in Texas. He's been assigned a new physical therapist and the person it turns out to be is a shocker. But she just might be the one to fix his knee...and his life. Tori is back in the Panhandle working hard and trying to keep a low profile. Thanks to her parents and the man she married, it's not going to be easy. And then Delon Sanchez blows back into her life but the wind is a tad bitter. These two have history...A history that is passionate but maybe a little poisonous. It was ironic that they both understood what it's like to be seen as something you're not, be expected to act a certain way, understand this and yet fulfill those expectations at the same time as chafing under them. They were perfect for one another and yet didn't see it. They also both wanted the same things out of life - things they'd always been denied. The road back together was full of potholes but I still enjoyed the ride. I liked that Dell continually set up road blocks for them because it gave them both time to see things in themselves - things to alter or accept - which made them stronger as individuals which in turn strengthened their relationship. Dell continues to wow me with her ability to convey the culture of West Texas as well as depict rodeo so clearly, I can "see" it all. I adore all her characters and have already started Tougher in Texas. I'm eager to see what Cole and Shawnee's stories are. Johanna Parker also impressed me once again She managed to keep her voices consistent across these two books and keep them distinct. She's a pleasure to listen to! **I received a complimentary copy from Tantor Audio. This did not affect my rating and my review is provided voluntarily.**

    I really liked Tangled in Texas mostly because of the three dimensional characters. I especially liked Tori, who was badass and didn't take crap from anyone. The snappy dialogue was another plus. One thing that bothered me a bit was that most of the hero and heroine's time together was fraught with insecurities, both in the past and the current day, and most of the conflict stemmed from them. I got tired of them doubting themselves and one another. Despite that, however, the book was engaging w I really liked Tangled in Texas mostly because of the three dimensional characters.

    I didn't think I was going to warm up to Delon because he was an impediment to the romance in the the first book. I also wasn't sure I'd vibe with Tori because she's not exactly my favorite kind of gal...at least initially. But that's what a good author can do: take characters who aren't perfect, explore their flaws, make them sympathetic, and rope a reader into the story. These two are not weenies. They have grit. And issues. And history together...I am such a sucker for a good misunderstanding I didn't think I was going to warm up to Delon because he was an impediment to the romance in the the first book.
