  Release Date: June 22, 2016


Are second chances possible in a world plagued with devastating loss, difficult obstacles and everyday commitments?

Having a very genuine understanding of death and grief, Ireland O’Brien has been able to put aside her anger and move forward with a career of helping orphaned children – making their lives better, even though she’s kept her own pain deeply buried within her heart.

Architectural engineer J. Bentley Roberts has also experienced his fair share of heartache. Nearly two decades ago, he suffered the loss of his role model and high school sweetheart in the same tragic accident. And, more recently, Bentley said goodbye to his marriage – leaving him to not only dust himself off, but also to help pick up his teenage son in the unsettling process.

As both of their best friends get ready to say their “I dos,” Ireland and Bentley find themselves together again after twenty years apart.

Will they be able to fight their past demons to finally find the love that’s always entwined them?

Ms. Decker doesn't pull any punches with Love Entwined. She lets us know in the prologue that things are not going to go well for Jamie and Ireland.
The story that follows shows us how they reconnected after 20 years apart and gives us hope that the heart always knows what it wants, even when the head gets in the way. It was interesting to read their reconnection and budding romance knowing that this thing from the prologue was hanging over their heads.
For me, the reconnection was interesting, but the real story was in what happened "after." I always liked Ireland and respected how she handled being thrown yet another curveball by life. Jamie/Bently over came her fears once, but circumstances proved (at least to her) that she was right and she did her best in a difficult situation. I struggled a little with the Jamie/Bently character. I initially adored him. He was sweet and swoon worthy. I even understood a (a little) the way he behaved initially in the "after," but I had a hard time with how long he punished Ireland for making the decision she did. I really felt that given the situation, his knowledge of her history, and his own actions, he was a little hard on her.
Love Entwined is well written and a pretty quick read, there were a couple of places that I would have liked to have seen "more," but that does not mean the story is lacking at all. The characters are all well written and play their roles well. Ms. Decker is an author that has been sitting on my TBR for a while and I am so glad that I finally dove in - I will definitely be going back to read her other works.
