Sarah Langham’s life was the epitome of normal until her dad slept with another woman when she was sixteen. It ripped her family apart.

Twenty-two-year-old Sarah has it together, though.

Waiting at the train station to go home from her first day of her first proper job out of university, she spots a man.

He is an enigma to her. She’s drawn to him, with his square jaw; buzz of hair; and his tall, solid frame, seen under the contours of his business suit. And he’s been looking at her, too. Fate pulls them together that night on a whirlwind date, exceeding anything Sarah’s experienced before. He’s even more into her than she’s into him. Finally, she wants to trust a guy for the first time since she was sixteen.

But then they discover something.

Something that meant they were never two strangers at a train station.

And it threatens to tear their future apart before it, really, ever begins.

My Thoughts:

The mysteriousness of this one led me to requesting it. It seemed like it would be one of those easy to read yet deeper kind of novels. And it was a lot like that.

When Sarah and Malik meet, you can feel the same pull they do. So as things develop for them, you're invested in their relationship despite how fast it happens. You find out early on what connects them, and when it's discovered, that's when it gets interesting. It wasn't what I was expecting before picking it up, but as I was reading, I had a feeling this was where it was leading. It does really add to the intensity of the story, although there were times I wasn't feeling it, especially when some of the discovery leads to certain events happening. While I did get a little frustrated, I was still very interested in finding out what happens next for Sarah and Malik, and everyone else.

Entwine turned out to be as intriguing as the synopsis made it sound. The romance between Sarah and Malik sizzles, and you're rooting for them to press on through the troubles. Rebecca Berto is very good at creating a story line that catches you and doesn't let go. I look forward to checking out other novels of hers!
