4.5 Tie Me Up, Make Me Submit CROWNS
This series has absolutely consumed my soul. Everything from the sexy, kinky cowboys to the exquisite writing has captivated me.
Jarrett put me under his spell from the first book, Knotted. His protectiveness and his dark, dominant nature piqued my interest from the very beginning. In Buckled, we get to see depth to his character. We see a man who communicates with his body and listens with eyes. He is attuned to Maybe in every single way, and it couldn’t have been hotter they way he hit her every need, pushing her body for he brink. His skill with listening extends outside of the bedroom, too, and he was able to give Maybe what she wanted without forcing or pushing her. His need to make her happy and fulfilled adds some swoon to this already alpha sexy man.
Maybe earns my respect almost immediately with her fake it til you make it attitude. She is determined and is consistently willing to stand up for what she needs and wants. What I love most about her character is her ability to explore her sexual desires, which ties into her open mind. She is able to have her beliefs and stick to them while not condemning others if they disagree with her ideologies. I love the fight and challenge she exudes.
If a reader looks at Buckled as a standalone story, it would be five stars. The pacing of the relationship, although quick, get right for the characters. The lust turned Love is electrifying and consuming, and readers will be swept away by it all. The conflict is genuine and ties into the larger plot of the series, and the resolution is incredibly authentic for the characters. As book two in the series, this one lacked major plot developments until closer to the end of the book. There are major plot developments that not only set up book three, but also tie Maybe and Jarrett together.
This series is just everything! The chemistry between each set of characters is combustible, the plot of revenge enthralled me, and the writing is eloquent. I will be eagerly waiting to see how this story will play out in the final book.
ARC received in exchange for an honest review
I protect what’s mine.
The ranch, my family, our buried secrets.
Nothing will stop me from reassembling the life that went terribly wrong.
Not the law.
Not our enemies.
Not even Maybe Quinn.
The gorgeous, quarrelsome journalist shouldn’t have meddled.
I shouldn’t have let her stay.
But she’s hiding something in those deceptive blue eyes.
Something deeper than her thirst for a news story.
I make a deal with her to buy time.
To unravel her lies. To play with her. To satisfy my darker appetites.
When she buckles beneath my belt, I’ll send her away.
Unless I buckle first.
