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…

Owen leaned close, so his breath mingled with Chad’s soft exhales. So the tips of his bow tie touched the edges of Chad’s leather jacket.

When Chad’s breath sped up, when his pupils dilated, Owen knew he had him. “Do you want to know how I’d fuck you?” he asked.

Chad didn’t answer. Finally, he licked his lips. “Yeah,” he said with a croak he didn’t succeed in masking.

Owen let his gaze trail over Chad’s face. “I’d take my time, peeling all these clothes off you. I wouldn’t touch you, though. No, I’d make it so you were naked in front of me, begging, begging for just a brush of my hand on your skin. And then I’d stroke you, nice and slow. I’d bite you, leave my marks behind. And when you’re just about to come, I’d pull you back from the brink. I’d bend you over a couch or a chair or a bed. I’d spread open that sweet ass. I can tell it’s sweet because of those tight jeans you’re wearing.”

That right there? Was Chad and Owen’s first meeting. This book is a dirty-talk-lovers DREAM, and it only gets hotter and sexier from there. Head over to Entangled Publishing to read the first mouth-watering chapter for free.


Tied to Trouble is the third book in the Gamers series, and are the first two and both are M/F. I loved Chad’s sister Marley so much that I fully intend on braving the M/F romance waters and reading the first two!

Char acts like an over-grown teenager, not really able to get his personal and professional life in order. He jumps from job to job and is currently a bartender. He harbors a secret wish of going back to school and studying his real passion, graphic design but is afraid of the drastic change and cutting back on his freedom.

Owen is a successful editor at the magazine Gamers which specializes on video games. He is a bit buttoned up and his sexy good looks and bow-tie hook Chad from their first meeting. Chad didn’t realize he had a bow-tie fetish until he met Owen.


The two cave to their attraction, quite begrudgingly, and start a steamy sexual relationship that includes sex in strange places. Since both have agreed to “keep things casual” a bed isn’t need for them to have quick fucks, blow-jobs and hand-jobs when the feeling strikes.

But in a delicious twist that I absolutely LOVE in M/M romance, they start to have feelings for one another while they are fucking like bunnies. It scares Chad because he really hasn’t taken anything seriously in his adult life and Owen is afraid that he is too stuffy for Chad and that Chad will bore of him quickly, so both try to keep their feelings in check. And, oh how wonderful is that to watch!

This was a very light read, heavy on the sex and passion, low on the angst. A perfect read when you wnt something steamy, light and fun. These boys, with all their many differences, are a perfect match!

I absolutely LOVED this book and can HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend it!
