Black Tangled Heart (Play On #3) by Samantha Young
The New York Times Bestselling author of the On Dublin Street series and As Dust Dances delivers a dark, sexy and emotional standalone romance about love, revenge, and surviving both.
To my siblings, Jane was a friend. A pseudo-sister, the girl we grew up with.
To me? She was everything.
Our passion consumed us.
When our world fell apart, I thought our love would be the thing that held us together.
She was the love of my life. But she abandoned me when I needed her most.
And I’ll never forgive her.
For years I’ve been planning my revenge against the people who took everything from me.
Jane won’t be an exception. I’m coming for her.
She knows it.
She says she wants to help me serve my version of justice on the people who hurt me.
I’ll let her.
She probably thinks it will save her from me.
The book is Out May 14th.
Will go live in Kindle Unlimited on Day of Release.
*This is a complete standalone. The Play On books are connected by the theme of the arts industry, not by characters.
I am a BIG FAN of any books that Samantha Young writes. I discovered her through her On Dublin Street Series and continued to read and one-click every book after that.
The story in Black tangled Heart does justice to her Play On Series, where every book can be read as a standalone because the series connects on their love of art.
Jane Doe has been a foster kid and life was not easy for her. When she meets the new kid, Lorna, that moves in her neighborhood, she is immediately thrown into a best friendship she cannot refuse because she was raised to believe she cannot be loved. With Lorna, comes her sister Skye and Jamie McKenna.
Jane has had a crush on Jamie since she met him, but it will take him a couple of years to notice her. After all, they have a 2 years difference. They have to keep their romance alive while dealing with life, betrayal and a lot of hurt.
50% of the book is about how they came to be Jane and Jamie. After a terrible twist of life, Jamie is thrown in jail for a crime he did not commit. The Jamie that goes out of prison, is not the one Jane loved as a kid. Now he is out for vengeance, and he thinks Jane has also wronged him.
I feel like a just read a movie script and 2 books in one. I spent the whole night finishing this one and my heart is still breaking for a love so pure as theirs.
To be fair, book 1 and 2 of this series were better from my point of view, but that is just because the trope in those ones are a hit for me.
If you are a newbie I wholeheartedly recommend to start at the beginning. Trust me, it’s a fantastic read.
