I’m reviewing Erica O’Rourke’s Tangled at Smexybooks

Tangled (Torn Trilogy #2) by Erica O’ Rourke
January 31, 2012

Favorite Quote: “For a second, I didn’t even feel the cut of his words, like when your slicing a loaf of bread, and the knife slips. You know something is wrong, you know you should be in pain, but the shock keeps you numb, even as you start to bleed.”

A month ago, Mo Fitzgerald risked her life to stop an ancient prophecy and avenge her best friend's murder. Now, she only wants to keep her loved ones safe. But the magic—and the Chicago Mob—have other plans. Mysterious, green-eyed Luc is back, asking for help—and a second chance. Colin, her strongest protector, is hiding a shocking secret. And inside Constance, the magic is about to go terribly wrong. Tangled in a web of love and betrayal, Mo must choose between the life she's dreamed of and the one she's destined for. (Goodreads)

Tangled picks up about three months after Torn left off. Mo used her gift as a vessel to avenge her friend’s death and negotiate with her family for some much needed freedom. When Verity’s sister Constance comes into her power early and violently, Mo calls upon the only one she knows can help Constance-Luc. When Luc arrives he brings his mother and father along. His father explains to Mo that in her attempts to fix the magic earlier, she has inadvertently triggered something and now the magic is more unstable then ever. He offers her a deal. Fix the magic and they will help Constance. No fix, no help. Mo knows nothing in the Arc is ever that simple but agrees for Constance’s sake. As Mo tries to understand and fix  the magic without killing herself, she begins to get pressure from her Uncle and his enemies that will soon require her to make a dangerous choice for all of them.
