Review: Tangle of Need by Nalini Singh
Adria, wolf changeling and resilient soldier, has made a break with the past—one as unpredictable in love as it was in war. Now comes a new territory, and a devastating new complication: Riaz, a SnowDancer lieutenant already sworn to a desperate woman who belongs to another.
For Riaz, the primal attraction he feels for Adria is a staggering betrayal. For Adria, his dangerous lone-wolf appeal is beyond sexual. It consumes her. It terrifies her. It threatens to undermine everything she has built of her new life. But fighting their wild compulsion toward one another proves a losing battle.
Their coming together is an inferno…and a melding of two wounded souls who promise each other no commitment, no ties, no bonds. Only pleasure. Too late, they realize that they have more to lose than they ever imagined. Drawn into a cataclysmic Psy war that may alter the fate of the world itself, they must make a decision that might just break them both.
I am all the levels of luke-warm on this book. Again, we go back to insignificant characters leading the main romance…my only saving grace is at this point, I am here for the plot and story line. Will Henry die? What will happen between Ming and Sienna? Who the h*ll is Kaleb searching for because I am about to lose my damn mind if I don’t find out. What is happening in the Psy civil war? I live for answers to these questions.
Now in terms of the romance, I was weirded out. Indigo is Adria’s niece…and she was lovers with Riaz. Can we just say awkward, I mean I can’t be the only one who is uncomfortable by this? That aside…assuming you can move past it, Riaz is exactly the lone wolf you expect. Independent and rough around the edges but has a heart of gold. Adria, well she was stubborn, whiny, and meh I just wasn’t that into her or the romance.
To the plus side, there is plenty of Hawke and Sienna, which I am 100% here for at all times! Riley and Mercy were absolutely adorable and had me sighing with contentment and joy. I can’t wait to see how these play out later on. I am also dying to hear more about the Ghost and Alice. I heard through the bookvine that the next book will answer all my burning questions, fingers crossed.
