Meet the Kincade brothers: they’ll go to any lengths to protect their legacy—
but what happens when love gets in the way...?
As if the holidays weren’t stressful enough, Parker Kincade has a restaurant to open. The fact that his Groomzilla brother wants the place for his perfect Christmas wedding doesn’t help. Then there’s the stunning woman who appoints herself his new chef before he’s ready to hire one. But one look at Gabriella Montani has Parker reassessing needs vs. wants. And that’s before he tastes what she has to offer…
Gabriella doesn’t need to get tangled up with a sexy man. What she needs is a job and a chance to prove herself. A place in Parker’s kitchen could give her the opportunity she’s been waiting for. The heat between them is sizzling, but a place in his bed could be downright dangerous. Neither Christmas nor men have ever lived up to her expectations, but Parker has soulmate written all over him. Should Gabi let herself be swept up in his holiday magic, or will it disappear before Christmas Day?
Tangled Up In Tinsel is the third book in the series and boy did I have fun with this one. I have only read book one, but I felt that Tangled Up In Tinsel was way better than even book one. I just couldn’t put this one down and boy I had a blast with this couple. They were so entertaining and they fit so well together. This is one of those stories I like to call “foodie romances”. Just basically means that there is lots of food and you might want to make sure you have some yummy treats while reading this one.
In Tangled Up In Tinsel our tale begins when our hero, Parker Kincaide, is rushing around trying to get his restaurant opened in time for his brothers wedding which he will be hosting, the same brother who wants the “perfect” wedding, so of course Parker is running around like crazy trying to get everything done as soon as possible. Then a beautiful woman walks through his door, wanting a job as his “chef” which is the last thing he is currently concerned about. Gabriella just wants a chance to prove herself and her talents. And she knows that she is exactly what Parker Kincade really needs. She is determined to prove herself, even if she has to get creative. Soon Gabriella and Parker find themselves in a tangled web of delicious endeavors and passion….
I love you Parker. And it has nothing to do with my father or this restaurant. I love you. The man who’s taught me to laugh and to live again.
What a story that this proved to be and I had such a fun time with these two. I just loved just about everything about this book. I honestly didn’t have any serious problems with this at all. The flow of the story worked so well and the dialogue that builds between Parker and Gabriella is pretty engaging. Then, of course, we have the family involvement. Now I know sometimes families don’t always work so well in romance, but this family totally worked for this book in just about every way. It wasn’t hard to figure that they would add some nice touches to the story. What also worked well for the story was the well balanced built up that becomes involved. What I have come to respect about Candis Terry is how she balances out the light and fun with those serious moments that are needed. Both characters have some unresolved issues especially in dealing with the Christmas season and it was so fun to see them work together to face their pasts and build that emotional intimate connection that is needed.
Tangled Up In Tinsel is a romance that is guaranteed to get you in the festive spirit, putting up tinsel, kissing your loved ones, and making your laugh and brings a sweet smile to your face!! DELICIOUSLY WRITTEN!!
