Miles Sorenson prides himself on his brutal honesty. Facts and logic are a hell of a lot easier to deal with than emotions. He’s got his career and a small, close-knit group of friends, and he doesn’t need nor want anything else. The total opposite of Quinn Barker, who doesn’t take life too seriously and thinks a good laugh can cure anything.
When Quinn takes Miles home, it’s supposed to be a one-time deal. Except they really click in the sack and end up spending the weekend together, enjoying each others’ bodies as much as their company…to Miles’ dismay. Matters get even more muddled when, months later, they run into each other at the popular West Hollywood bar, Wild Side, and pick up right where they left off.
On the surface, Quinn and Miles are like oil and water, but the draw between them is undeniable. As their lives further entwine, they realize there’s more to their connection than the way they singe the sheets together.
But demons from the past have a way of catching up, and no matter how strong the link is tying Miles and Quinn together, the pressure may be enough to make it snap.
5/5 Stars – Actually, can I give this book 6 stars?
Tied to You was the 5 star read I didn’t see coming but will never forget. I read this book as a standalone, so I had no background knowledge of Miles and Quinn or any of the supporting characters going into this, but regardless, it was still fantastic!
The book was a little confusing to me in the beginning. There are quite a few flashbacks that don’t read as flashbacks so it can get mildly confusing in the beginning if you don’t really pay attention and know what’s going on, but once you get past the first few chapters it’s smooth sailing from there. I don’t want to talk too much about the plot because the blurb really does say everything, but the magic in this novel isn’t so much the plot itself, but rather the way it was written.
Quinn pulled me in immediately with his tragic backstory and effortless charm. Their similar pasts are part of the draw between these two characters because they understand eachother where nobody else has been able to. Quinn grew up in the foster care system while Miles was adopted by a loving family, but he’s never been able to shake the feeling that he’s missing this huge part of his life. Ending up in bed together may have been the plan, but Miles and Quinn never meant to share their real selves with each other. Between telling stories they’d never told anyone else and occasionally taking a break to eat, Miles and Quinn lit up the sheets and made each other feel alive.
This book just reminded me of why I love Riley Hart so much. This book was full of hot, steamy, (kinky) between the sheets fun with next-level chemistry between two unlikely lovers. 5+ stars for Tied to You! This one definitely comes recommended from me!
