Book Review: Entangled (Evolve #2.5) by S.E. Hall

The Crew is back in this short, sizzling novella. And I mean sizzling. Entangled picks up where Embrace left off and gives us a peek at The Crew's summer through Laney's and Dane's eyes. Laney is set tipping up her duplex that Dane bought her and in the process their intimacy kicks up a notch. She is as stubborn and mouthy as ever which only fuels Deane's desire for her. W can see more of his dominant side coming out and it is magnificent and hot. I felt like there was more sex in this novella than in the previous full length novels and I loved envy single steamy second of it!

“Move your panties to the side,” he growls, voice and eyes hazed with lust and hunger, both imploring me before he leans down to suck along my chest, my throat, frenzied and impatient. “Do it, baby, just pull ‘em to the side, I need in you.”

“I love you like this, so untamed. You dance like you fuck, smooth and sexy.”

Meanwhile, Dane is contemplating making some big changes in his life. When his parents died, Dane was thrust into running a business that he never wanted to run. He doesn't hate it, but he doesn't love it either. He longs to be able to act more his age and be a part of Laney's college world. Can he make that transition without hurting the business and will his friends support him?
This was a fantastic, quick read that will help hold me over until Sawyer's book comes out. Speaking of which, he was very much absent in Entangled and it obviously something was going on with him, so I'm anxious for his story next.

“I’m kidding you, Ben. He’s cute, probably thirty, blond hair. Seemed very nice.” I shrug, heading to the kitchen in search of the wine I had planned. “Why do you care anyway? You and Tate okay?” 
“Of course we are—perfect. I was just curious. I’d simply rather have some eye candy in the hood than,” she contemplates, “well, than not.” 
“Slut,” I cough into my hand, trying not to laugh. 
“Only a look slut, I never touch. I love my Taterbear.” 
“Taterbear?” I snort, slamming the fridge door shut and bugging my eyes out at her. “I think I just threw up in my mouth a little. How am I supposed to look at him now?” 
“Oh, hush.” She pushes on my shoulder, her cheeks now the color of her hair. “Don’t you and Dane have bedroom names?” 
“Oh my God, Bennett! You call him that in the bedroom?” I’m nearly shouting now, bent over with my hands on my knees, bracing my body’s full-gut laughter. “Please stop talking, my ears are bleeding!” 
“You’re so mean, Laney,” she whines, “I’m never telling you anything ever again.” 
“Thank God!” I wheeze out, still hee-hawing at her. 
“Come on, bitch, grab your glass and I’ll give you the grand tour. If you can compose yourself long enough,” she says haughtily, and I think I hear a muttered “skank” as she leads us down the hall.
