Deputy US Marshals Miro Jones and Ian Doyle are now partners on and off the job: Miro’s calm professionalism provides an ideal balance to Ian’s passion and quick temper. In a job where one misstep can be the difference between life and death, trust means everything. But every relationship has growing pains, and sometimes Miro stews about where he stands with his fiery lover. Could the heartstrings that so recently tied them together be in danger of unraveling?

Those new bonds are constantly challenged by family intrusions, well-intentioned friends, their personal insecurities, and their dangerous careers—including a trial by fire when an old case of Miro’s comes back to haunt them. It might just be enough to make Ian rethink his decision to let himself be tied down, and Miro can only hope the links they’ve forged will be strong enough to hold.

Story Review:

Fit to be Tied was a great sequel to All Kinds of Tied Down. Amidst a visit from a serial killer, which involved some brutal scenes, Miro pushed Ian for more commitment in their relationship. I liked where they ended up and that they never broke down getting there. The sex was hot and although some of the police procedures were iffy, it was good escapist reading.

The only thing that really got to me was the number of times India Pale Ale came up and that Miro mentioned his shoes constantly; it was a little excessive and detracted a bit from the guts of the story. A few details enhance the story, being told every time they had a beer what their favourite was and being told the name of every pair of shoe Miro wore was tedious, especially as it meant nothing to me.

That aside, fans of Mary Calmes will love it, fans of hot cops will love it, fans of Miro and Ian will love it!

Narration Review:

I really liked Tristan James voice and narration. Though I didn’t like all of his voice choices, I liked that I could tell who was talking and that there was emotion behind it. The sex scenes were well done and didn’t come across stiff. I could really hear Miro come through.
