Everyone says hotshot goalie Luke Jackson is God’s gift to girls, but the only girl he wants is his best friend, Malina Hall. He’s always known how brilliant she is, but now that he’s “accidentally” kissed her, he can’t stop thinking about her…or wanting to kiss her again.

Problem is, things have been a little…awkward since the kiss. Because she likes him, too? Hopefully, but even if she did, their futures—and the ridiculous schedules that come with them—are in the way. And now one of his teammates is showing interest, and the guy has more in common with Malina than Jackson ever will.

As her best friend, Jackson should get out of the way. But if there’s one thing he’s learned from hockey, it’s that you have to go for what you want, even if it means falling flat on your face. And he’s definitely falling for Malina.

Disclaimer: This book contains a hot hockey player who goes after what he wants, a super-hot, super-distracting shirtless workout, and the kind of best friends to lovers romance every girl in the friend zone has dreamed of.
Tied up in You by Erin Fletcher is a companion novel to All Laced Up, but you can read this one without having read the first book. The characters in the first book appear, but you don't necessarily need to know anything that happened in the first book to enjoy this one. I love series like that, and if you haven't noticed it's kind of the type of books I have been flocking to lately.
I didn't like this one as much as the first book All Laced Up, and I think it might just because at times I thought there was just too much drama. I do love the trope of friends to lovers, but I wanted to shake Malina and Luke so much and just make them kiss again. Seriously, these two were just so stubborn, and I didn't understand it! Like stop being dumb, and get together already.

I thought it was really cool that Malina was into STEM and I thought it was sweet that Luke was super supportive of her interests even if he didn't really understand them. This plays a big part to the overall plot later in the book, in how Luke and Malina finally get together.

I really liked that this book tried to include diversity, especially in a book that has a hockey focus. Malina mother was from Hawaii and her grandmother lives with them and tries to keep their traditions. I don't know a lot about Polynesian culture to know if it was an accurate representation, but I was glad to see it in this book.

This another cute romance book from Entangled: Crush. I am seriously loving their books lately, if you couldn't tell. If you are in the mood for a romance story with a happy ending, I suggest you pick this one up.
