Summary: Constance started to keen as the air around us began to thrash and twist, the caustic scent of ozone burning my nose. As I watched, her dark gold hair began to lift and kink into knots.

“I’m here. It’ll be okay.” It was the last thing I said before my best friend’s little sister went supernova in the second-floor girls’ bathroom, taking me with her.

A month ago, Mo Fitzgerald risked her life to stop an ancient prophecy and avenge her best friend's murder. Now, she only wants to keep her loved ones safe. But the magic—and the Chicago Mob—have other plans.

Mysterious, green-eyed Luc is back, asking for help—and a second chance. Colin, her strongest protector, is hiding a shocking secret. And inside Constance, the magic is about to go terribly wrong. Tangled in a web of love and betrayal, Mo must choose between the life she's dreamed of and the one she's destined for.

My Thoughts: I remember first seeing Torn and I was hesitant to read it, but once I did I enjoyed it a lot so when I heard there was going to be another book in the series, I was very excited.

In Tangled, we are back with Mo and her crazy life. She’s still divided between Colin and Luc. She’s still battling her uncle's business and her “other” business.  Mo has a lot on her hands. She had to stop an evil prophecy and learn just how to deal with real life in the process. Now she’s out to save her best friend’s sister Constance (remember her best friend died?) and she has to start thinking about where her future is going to go. Is she going to go against her uncle and choose Colin or if she going to finally give in and get with Luc, she is after all betrothed to him.

Gosh, this book was an emotional ride. From the troubles with her family, her own personal struggles every time she went in between, and just seeing how much she clearly cares about both boys, its a roller coaster ride.

The plot is filled with so many different things, things twisted and turned when you least expected it. She kisses both boys when you start to think she’s going to end up with the opposite one, and she helps Constance in the process. And the fire, it made me cry a few tears! Very emotional!

Tangled is a very different kind of novel. The first part of the book I started to wonder if it was going to get better, or if anything major was going to happen, but just like with Torn, it all hits you at once and you look at the clock and it's the middle of the night.

Mo is such a likable character. Even though she’s stubborn, I can see myself being best friends with her and helping her out through her daily life.

Overall:This series is different, but in a good way. The characters are easy to get attached too. The plot sucks you in. And by the end, you’ll be rooting for both boys wishing she could just have them both. This series is one you should check out now!

Cover: I’m not thrilled with the covers but they are ok. I think that was the biggest problem with Torn. I didn’t read it soon enough because the cover didn’t catch my eye right off the bat. But, they are such good books!
