Review of:  Tied Up in Knots by Mary Calmes (audiobook)

TITLE: Tied Up in Knots (audiobook)
AUTHOR: Mary Calmes
SERIES: Marshals Book 3
PUBLISHER: Dreamspinner Press
GENRE: Contemporary Romance
RELEASE DATE: Sept 17 2014


Miro Jones is living the life: he’s got his exciting, fulfilling job as a US deputy marshal, his gorgeous Greystone in suburban Chicago, his beloved adopted family, and most importantly, the man who captured his heart, Ian Doyle. Problem is, Ian isn’t just his partner at work—Ian’s a soldier through and through. That commitment takes him away from Miro, unexpectedly and often, and it’s casting a shadow over what could be everything Miro could ever dream of.
Work isn’t the same without Ian. Home isn’t the same, either, and Miro’s having to face his fears alone… how to keep it together at the office, how to survive looming threats from the past, and worst of all, how to keep living without Ian’s rock-solid presence at his side. His life is tied up in knots, but what if unknotting them requires something more permanent? What would that mean for him and Ian? Miro’s stuck between two bad choices, and sometimes the only way to get out of the knot is to hold tight to your lifeline and pull.
Listening Length: 9 hours and 48 minutes

Narration: Tristan James…another hit for me! I Love his voice. The cadence was perfect, and he kept the tempo and emphasis where it was called for. I hadn’t read this series before listening, but that made no difference to understanding what was going on, even though I was at my day job. I’m beginning to think he’s always going to be a hit for me.

Story: This is the third book by Mary Calmes in this series. So by now, we know the series is focused on Miro and Ian as life partners and US Marshal partners. But Ian is sent away yet again. And just when Miro really needs him. Instead, we met a couple of new Marshals that have their own drama going on. But we also meet the new cutie that needs protection.

It amazes me just how much Mary Calmes can shove into a novel and still have it all make sense and follow along in a larger plot going on as well as the romance. But when Ian finally gets home and Miro makes his way back to Chicago, the heat is HOT.

As for the other parts of the book, I don’t want to ruin it or spoil anything if you haven’t read or listened to this, so I’m just going to leave this here…

Two alpha males going at it is so freakin HOT

Dad…and his family, you all suck! Go away and don’t come back!

Creepy as hell dude…shivers

Didn’t need that rib anyway…hmmmph


I laughed, I cried, and I was hot under…well, you get the point. After book 3, I still want more.
