Format: Kindle Edition
SnowDancer Lieutenant Riaz has returned from Europe with his heart broken. He met his destined mate only to find she's devoted and in love with another. As he and his wolf try to move on, no female in the pack has interested them. Not until the fiery and fierce Adria. Adria will never again allow herself to fall for a man who can't handle her dominate wolf and treat her with the admiration and affection she deserves. Riaz is unlike anyone she's met before and the passion that quickly consumes them has her closely guarding her heart, for how can a man who was turned away by his mate ever think of her as more than second best?

There is nothing simple about the relationship between Riaz and Adria. Their scars run soul deep, so there are things that need to be confronted and wounds that need to heal before moving forward. Riaz is dealing with rejection from his mate, while Adria has made a break from a relationship with a man who was her inferior and it took a real toll on her heart. The range of emotions they feel over the course of the book for each other and themselves runs from angry and sad to happy yet cautious. Their time shared alone where my favorite moments of the book because it showed a side of them few got to see. Riaz was surprisingly romantic yet commanded Adria's body in a way that satisfied her need for dominance. Adria had a playful side I wouldn't have guessed she had and was able to help Riaz in a way no one else could.

The question for me was, would Riaz be able to love Adria unconditionally and not see her as the consolation prize. I thought this would be a difficult task because having them conveniently get over the hurt and fall head over heels for each other would have been too easy and unworthy of such a well written series.

Format: Hardcover
My Rating: 3.5 stars: Liked it - recommend (B+)

Much to my delight, for the third straight book, Ms. Singh focuses attention on the SnowDancer pack, a wolf-changeling pack that is one of the two powerhouses of the western US (the other is the DarkRiver Leopard pack). Tangle of Need opens a short time after the explosive (literally) conclusion of the previous book, Kiss of Snow. Two wolves that have been in the peripheral are now thrust into the spotlight. Riaz is a lone wolf, who has recently returned to the home den. Likewise, Adria has also recently return home after a failed relationship left her a bit broken. The two are both dominate wolves and have a tough time getting along. However, their fiery attraction cannot be denied!

Overall, Riaz and Adria have a wonderful Changeling courtship. Their volatile nature leaves them alternating between lust and frustration, desire and denial. Right from early on, their exchanges are smart and sensual, and always full of passion. At times there is so much sexual tension and simultaneously anger between them that I could feel the tension internally. I actually wanted to cower from the display of dominance. Ms. Singh understands these feelings so well and is a master at conveying it on the page.

Even with the excitement and fervor, I had a tough time connecting with Riaz and Adria and the story in general. There is a lot that is going on in this book. First - major sections of the story are focused on newly mated SnowDancer leader, Hawke and his dangerous X-Psy, Sienna. I enjoyed their story immensely (Kiss of Snow), but their "intrusion" into this book fell flat for me. I felt that there was too much attention on this couple that just had a whole book.

I usually love this series but this book left me baffled. I really tried to get into this book but just ended up skimming. Maybe it was my mood at the time, but I doubt I'll ever give this book another try to find out. What went wrong?

First, the characters Riaz and Adria never came alive for me. At all. Their relationship seemed to violate every rule of mating and I was disappointed that they would settle for no mating bond. Perhaps Singh will have them develop one in future books but by then it will be too late for me to care. I love Hawke and Sienna but their inclusion in this book just seemed like repetition: You're mine, Yes I am, lets have sex. Ditto, ditto, ditto.

And then there are the dozens of other characters thrown around. They were just names on a page and I could never relate or even care what was happening.

Frankly, this book just bored me senseless.

When I finished reading Nalini Singh's Tangle of Need, the eleventh book in her Psy-Changeling series, my jaw dropped and I did a little Snoopy Dance in my seat. The reason is the last three pages. But since revealing what occurs in those pages are big BIG spoilers, and allude to possibility of who the hero of the next book will be (I get down on my knees and pray it's who I think it is because, I AM THIS CHARACTER'S BIGGEST FAN. Ahem).

I've said it time and again, when it comes to Nalini's Psy-Changeling books, I can't praise them enough. I've enjoyed some more than others, but with Tangle of Need, Nalini is again tying up loose ends and the countdown has begun to finish this series with what will be explosive results. For me it's no longer about the primary romance. It's all the steps, very concentrated and planned out steps, to the final outcome of the Psy community and how the changelings and humans will rise up and defeat the silence the Psy has created as their idea as to what peace and harmony should be. There's big cracks within the Psy community and with their leaders. This is shown in Tangle of Need as we see plans for the battle that's going to have a massive ripple effect for everyone involved. But as everyone trains for this upcoming battle, and the knowledge things are going to get very difficult and deadly, there are moments of tranquility shown through friendships, family and the relationships Nalini has created with her cast of characters.

The primary couple here from the Snowdancer pack with Adria and Riaz who are at odds with one another. These two don't have a high opinion of one another, but have this crazy attraction where they can't stop thinking about each other and want to act on it.
