Between love and hate, there's a whole lot of trouble…
Chad Lake only showed up at his sister's party for the free food, but when he spots an uptight nerd at the edge of the crowd, he can't resist trying to ruffle the guy's perfect bow tie and impeccable hair. The hottie's ready for him, though, and in the end, it's Chad who's left wide-eyed, his ears still ringing with the filthy things Bow Tie whispered in his ear. No one gets the upper hand on Chad. Ever.
Owen Hawkins has heard all about the cocky Adonis from Chad's sister—the same sister who holds Owen's career advancement in her hands. He has every intention of steering clear of the other man…until Chad's sexy taunts push him too far. There's something intriguing about Chad, and even though Owen knows that getting tangled up with the infuriating man is trouble, he can't seem to stay away…
**This is part of an M/F series but can be read as standalone**
REVIEWThe characters in Tied to Trouble prove why you should never judge a book by its cover. On the outside Chad Lake is all fun and games. He never takes anything too seriously. He seems to just coast through life, drifting from job to job. On the surface, Owen is a nerdy, bow tie wearing guy, who wouldn't know fun if it bit him in his rear. He seems square and boring. Man oh man, these two are so much more than they appear to be.
Owen is nerdy but he’s passionate. He’s an alpha in disguise with a dominant side. He thinks he’s boring and doesn't have a lot to offer to anyone. Chad is the guy you go to for a good time. He’s a free spirit, who’s never found himself in this world. Chad has a very bad viewpoint of himself and how people see him. Owen and Chad are about to find out they are a whole lot more than they think they are.
I loved that the characters surprised me with the fact that they weren't one dimensional and had substance. Owen and Chad have a love-hate relationship which at times is fun to watch. It definitely made their non-intimate moments fun. Speaking of intimate moments, while they were hot, at times they sounded clinical, thus taking away from the moment.
The pace of the story was good, and I find myself enjoying the journey Chad and Owen were on. The story has a happy ending and characters from the previous two books are brought back. If you’ve read book one, Changing His Game, this book will make you happy. If you are new to the series, don’t worry, Tied to Trouble is a standalone read.
Now, all I can say is bring on Ethan!!!
