Nic Dalton likes control. She’s a single hardworking woman who owns her own flourishing business. She has put her all into making it what it is today and has no room for failure. Same goes for her personal life. After facing a medical issue, she now maintains a tight control on her diet and exercise regimen. But when her friend takes her to a social event out of her comfort zone, Nic is anything but in control…
Matt Montgomery is a protector. He is devoted to his family and loyal to his city. He’s one of Seattle’s finest. And he is all about control; especially in the bedroom. He is a master in his craft.
Matt meets Nic at an erotic festival. Something about him demands her attention from the moment she sees him. It doesn’t take long before he takes her home and shows her what letting go of her control can feel like. Their first union is hot and passionate; one of her best ever. However, when it’s done he gets called away and hurries out before getting her number. It’s for the best, she thinks. She doesn’t really do his brand of control anyway, even though it was the hottest thing she’s ever experienced and secretly loved every minute of it.
Oh holy smoking hell! Kristen Proby has delivered the goods once again!
Matt, *sigh*, where do I even begin. How can I do that man justice? As with all the men in the With Me in Seattle series, Matt is devoted and loving. He may be into kink, but he loves and respects how Nic challenges him…outside of the bedroom. Inside the bedroom is his domain. I have to say his brand of kink was a refreshing read. He’s a master at Shibari, a form of bondage. That man can make a tie out of just about anything. But when he brings his ropes out to play, it takes on an art form. It’s intricate and beautiful. Arousing.
“I want to show you what I can do with my ropes tonight, little one.”
Nic is this strong, independent woman. For her it’s intimidating relinquishing control like she does. But a relationship with Matt is worth entering uncharted waters. She may fight it at times and not fully understand it, but she does enjoy it.
I was rooting for this couple. They are a perfect fit. My heart ached for them when they came to a challenging part in their relationship. Nic was willing to walk away from it all because she felt Matt deserved more. She couldn’t see that she was all he ever wanted and the rest could be worked out. Matt, however, isn’t that easy to get rid of. And he stakes a claim to what’s his.
“You are mine. I stayed away like I promised I would, but I’m done, Nic.”
Tied With Me gave me a full menu of emotions. I cried. I laughed. I melted. Seriously Kristen Proby cannot write a bad book. I love how all her characters (sure the males are deliciously hot and model worthy but hey it’s a romance book people) are all real. She writes realistic situations. Even better, in every book we get a view of this family she’s created. We see them grow and develop.
I know with every installment in this series, we creep closer to the end of it. I for one will be a bawling mess when it does come to an end. This series has truly touched my heart. But until that day comes, I will hug my Kindle and patiently await the next one.
