After Dark Review of Tangled Past by Leah Braemel

I have added After Dark Reviews to my blog as a way of notifying you of a review of a book with Adult themes and scenes. From now on I will keep my reviews of all books I read that have explicit scenes in them for late night posts for those of you who prefer to avoid them or easy to find for those of you who seek them out ;)
Synopsis: "Forced to marry a man she just met, Sarah McLeod clings to the hope that she'll finally find the love and acceptance she's always craved. Her tenuous dreams of a happy life on the frontier are in danger of being dashed by the one thing she can't change—her husband's love for another man.

Jackson Kellar's determined to do right by his bride, yet he's torn between his newfound love for Sarah and his still-burning desire for Nate.

Ranch owner Nate Campbell loves them both. He hates to see Jackson's loyalties so divided, and doesn't want Sarah hurt either. How can they fix the tangled mess they find themselves in? Nate suggests a possible solution—a permanent threesome.

With the open frontier closing in around them, is Nate's solution their path to happiness—or will others destroy what they've found together?"

My Review: The characters in this story are wonderful. I couldn't help but root for all three of the main characters and their relationships. I did find the setting a little odd, the time period just didn't seem to fit with the characters, they felt more modern for some reason but I can see how the other put them in the late 1800s to add a little conflict to the story. I would have also liked a little more story to add to the sex scenes, because it felt like Sarah spent most of her time in the bedroom but you knew that wasn't possible again considering the time period and setting, I just wanted more of her interactions with Jackson outside the bedroom. All that said I thought it was a well done story that kept me reading until I was done.

Note This story features several sex scenes including M/F, M/M & M/M/F
My Rating: While I found the setting a bit off, I quickly forgot about it and became involved with the characters. I give it a rating of Three Paws and a Stump Wag.


  1. Ahh she's on my tbr list :) Sounds like a good one even with the off setting.

    1. I liked the characters and story she created, I think this was the second in a series though just to let you know.
