Reviews for Texas Tangle
I don’t think I can express how much I enjoyed this book. I had no desire to put it down once I started it and when I was finished I was ready for more. I’m truly hoping that there will be more stories about Dillon’s siblings so I can get a glimpse at how this trio is doing.
Sexual, sensual, loving, caring, unique are just a few of the adjectives I could use to describe this book. The sex is hot yet caring. It’s adventurous but loving. Shocking truths are shared and others are discovered. This is just a fantastic romance that stretches the boundaries. ~ Terri, Night Owl Romance
Two words for Leah’s book are AWESOME and WOW.... Each time I changed the paged I was like more please. I loved the suspense of who would get her heart and who would be brokenhearted. I loved it and I’ll definitely highly recommend this title ~Melinda, Night Owl Romance

...how many synonyms are there for tremendous, enjoyable, fabulous and awesome? If you’re looking for an emotional, sensual, heartwarming story, this is it. I will definitely be recommending all of Leah Braemel’s books..5 Ravens and a Recommended Read.~Lea, Blackraven's Reviews
...hot and steamy story...Leah Braemel didn't shy away from all the emotional entanglements that can occur within a menage...well-written, emotional and extremely erotic story. Do yourself a favor and pick this one up! 4.5 Blue Ribbons ~ Cheryl, Romance Junkies
This story was totally different from other ménages I’ve read in the past....Dillon’s grandmother stole the show when she gave her opinion at the dining room table. I about lost it. A very emotional story that explores how a ménage can develop, and it’s not just for the thrill of kink. We watch all three parties change, grow and make discoveries that help them mature and realize what they really want ~Chris, Night Owl Reviews
Talk about family drama… Ms. Braemel brings out the big guns on family angst and drama. It runs these characters like a hurricane where no one doesn’t feel the wrath of this storm called family…There is plenty of sexy romance going on with this Texas trio’s twosome and threesome...I so wished Ms. Leah hadn’t end it there…because I really wanted to read more and more. I give Texas Tangle by Leah Braemel a rating of 4 Stars. ~ Veronica, Strictly Reviews
Leah Braemel writes a beautiful, intriguing and realistic story that draws the reader in from the first paragraph. Her characters are realistic and must face many hurdles before figuring out where the relationship or relationships will go. In addition, Leah has created a multitude of side characters that add depth and realism to the story. The story is well paced and very enjoyable...I thoroughly enjoyed the story, and found it unique to the genre. Readers will enjoy this western with a twist. ~ Valerie, Night Owl Reviews
TEXAS TANGLE by Leah Braemel is labeled a menage but it is so much more. It is about three people who are destined to be together no matter what they think is socially acceptable...I cannot recommend TEXAS TANGLE enough it is definitely in my keeper pile and going to be re-read more then once. ~Barb of Bad Barb's Reviews
Scorchin' sizzlin' sexy time, nicely paced, good character interaction, I love the flow the author has between them all, these are characters you want to care about, you feel for them when they hurt, you want to defend Nikki against her terrible family, and yes girls you want to
Texas Tangle is an erotic ménage that worked for me....I believed in this trio...Leah Braemel gives us plenty of hot scenes and I really enjoyed them....I will definitely be checking out more from Leah Braemel. 4 out of 5 ~Mandi, Smexy Books
The love making other than that was steamy and sexy. There’s some alone time, voyeurism, three way action (one time double penetration – that was woo-dang smoking hot), and lots of cuddling. Go ahead and spice your bedroom up with this read. You’ll thank me later. ~ 4 stars, Love Romance Passion
This is a very good story with the problems associated with a threesome shown in a very believable way. There was never an ick factor for me. The sex scenes were very tasteful, yet retains their steaminess. Hopefully readers can put aside any preconceived notions regarding threesomes and take a chance on this truly emotional story that gives a whole new understanding of what defines a family. 7.5 ~Jody, The Season of Romance
This story is special in so many ways...In this story there are so many issues that real people can relate to, which makes the story mean that much more to the reader. Everyone has had to deal with someone always putting them down or being verbally abusive...The insecurities, doubt, hope, love and other emotions are things we all deal with on a daily basis...Texas Tangle is another impressive story from Carina Press and I thoroughly enjoyed it. ~ Heather Brewer, Everybody needs a Little Romance
Written with lots of humor, heart-wrenching betrayal and plenty of heat, Leah Braemel sweeps the reader from drama to delight page to page ~ Victory Essex, Victory's March Reviews
Leah has done it again. This was a poignant story of coming to terms with love. How do you pick between your two best friends? ...a unique twist...I really enjoyed it ~ Natasha, My Disorganized Ramblings
Texas Tangle delivers the goods. Leah Braemel’s storytelling drew me in from page one and kept me riveted in my seat until the last word...I closed this book, having laughed, cried, sighed and smiled. Plus the three of them together is really hot. I had to check the screen for singe marks. If you want a story that will stick with you long after the last page, then you need to read Texas Tangle. I give it 4 cherries. ~Tiger Lily, Whipped Cream Reviews (part of Long and Short of It Reviews)
