Simon Jordan, an up-and-coming expert in the burgeoning field of mental illness, is engaged by a group of reformers and spiritualists who seek a pardon for Grace. He listens to her story while bringing her closer and closer to the day she cannot remember. What will he find in attempting to unlock her memories? Is Grace a female fiend? A bloodthirsty femme fatale? Or is she the victim of circumstances? And when she did, the last thing she would call herself was kinky or unconventional. I'm the least kinky person on the planet. I'm so vanilla, I smell of it. Japanese rope bondage.
He is technically called a Dom because of his mastery of the art, but isn't fully committed to all the typical practices and beliefs a Dom would have. His interest is purely in getting the woman's submission and therefore, all of her trust while he ties her up and has his wicked and very talented way with her. He's not into bossing anyone around for the sake of being in control or controlling anything outside of the bedroom.
That's what I liked about him. He was always focused on how to take care of her inside AND outside the bedroom, but purely from a protective standpoint. When they meet at the erotic festival, they feel an immediate and intense attraction and they impulsively go home together. Nic has one of the most erotic, yet unsettling sexual encounters of her life. Seeing as she's always viewed herself as "very vanilla" she's a little shaken to find out how much she enjoyed Matt's dominance and bondage. And not altogether happy about it. When he gets called away on a family emergency, they are separated through a misunderstanding until a few weeks later when she bakes the cake for Caleb and Brynna's wedding.
Matt is thrilled to see her again, but she's wary and edgy. She's not about to enter his world with all his preferences. It couldn't possibly work in the long term-she's sure of it. They're too different. Leave it be, Matt. Not a chance in fucking hell am I going to leave it be. Yeah, Matt's not the type to let anything get in his way when he wants something.
He's a detective, a dominant, and when he makes his mind up on something, he makes it happen. Once he gets past her initial hesitancy, they embark on a tentative relationship. The sex and steam are as always, off the charts. Loved their sexy times. It steamed up my Kindle. Matt comes to see that not only is she everything he's been looking for in the bedroom, but they have a lot in common and are a natural and beautiful fit outside of it as well.
She's sweet and funny, strong and independent, and she gets along great with his family-she even plays the piano and works on a song with Leo and Meg. The musicians in the family They just fit. He falls hard and isn't afraid to say it or show it. I loved that about him. You're amazing. I don't have time to untie you because if I don't get you out of here and home in the next ten minutes, I won't be responsible for my actions.
I need to be inside you, I need to love you and an hour in a private room isn't going to do it for me. I need to get you home so I can spend the night showing you what you mean to me. And Nic is feeling just as pulled toward him. I feel full, Matt. Physically and mentally. I feel like we've turned a corner that we can never turn back from, and I'm terrified and excited at the same time. Remember when I said Matt is big on honesty and trust?
This is where Nic has some issues. She's not fully able to share some things about herself and it causes their main conflict in the story. She has to learn to open herself fully to him and fight for what she wants. I really enjoyed this latest edition to the series. It had all the humor and sexiness of the previous books but the erotic factor was cranked up a notch. I loved keeping up with all the rest of the past characters and extended family. My one complaint would be that I would have liked to have seen a little more conflict between Nic and Matt.
This by no means takes away from my high opinion of the book. I give it a solid 4 stars with no hesitation. If you haven't started on this series, you really need to jump on it. View all 3 comments. Gah I love this book so much! Jan 25, Brenna rated it liked it Shelves: alpha , romantic , series , audible , bdsm. Tied With Me is another sweet and sexy addition to the With Me in Seattle series with a side of kink to spice things up. I enjoyed listening to this audio book! We saw a lot of him the last book, Safe With Me because as a detective he was protecting Brynna but also because him and Caleb are best friends.
It turns out Matt is a master in the Japanese art of Shibari, which is a type of rope bondage. Nic owns Succulent Sweets, the cupcake bakery that many in the family frequent. When doing a wedding for one of the Montgomery couples, she runs into Matt and immediately bolts, making everyone wonder what that was all about. It turns out, they had met weeks earlier. Bailey, my best friend, talked me into attending the Seattle spring erotic festival. How she managed, I have no idea.
Is this just a sex thing? Because taking me to spend time with your family kind of pushes whatever we have going on into a different area. The sex is amazing, but I want to pursue a relationship with you, Nic. Wherever that takes us. Trust and communication are the most important things for him and I loved that he was so sweet and understanding but at the same time demands what he wants. Nothing will ever change that.

Although there were funny moments and I loved revisiting the Montgomery's and their extended family again, I found Matt and Nic's story a little on the boring side. Nic was so judgmental about Mat's lifestyle view spoiler [, yet she went home, tied up, with and had sex with a total stranger. And to her home at that hide spoiler ]. I didn't get much of a feel for her friendship wi 2- 2.
I didn't get much of a feel for her friendship with Bailey. Still not quite clear on her family life. One minute she's saying how her mother gives her a guilt trip for moving away from them. The next she talking about how not all families are as close and supportive as the Montgomery's. Then the whole drama she created kind of sent me over the edge. It was an easy conversation to have and yet she made it so much more difficult than in needed to be, in my opinion. Matt went from zero to sixty in a matter of minutes. One minute he's going on about having no intentions of ever getting married or tied down.
The next, he can't stay away from Nic. Staying up 24 hours in order to help her out and taking her with him when members of his family have happy or sad occasions. It was just such a quick turnaround and no hesitation on his part at all. Look, it was a sweet romance, but I wanted more of the Kristen Proby magic. And I have to say when I read that there was going to be a more intense sexual element to the story, I was thrilled. I don't really call what happened in the book that at all. Some light bondage with some alpha tendencies Not bad at all, but not what I expected.
I just think Ms. Proby should stay in her lane and go back to doing what she does best, which I like. View all 5 comments. I thought this was a fun, entertaining addition to the Seattle series, and I'm sure fans of Kristen Proby will be happy. My favorite books in the series are Fight with Me and Safe with me, which is a good thing because I think Will gets all the love and attention. Nate and Caleb are tied for my favorites: KP books are very predictable, and she has her own brand of smutty writing.
This book fits perfectly with her typical stuff, and it is definitely not unusually kinky. That is coming from some I thought this was a fun, entertaining addition to the Seattle series, and I'm sure fans of Kristen Proby will be happy. That is coming from someone who has never read a BDSM book. I don't have a problem with that, I just don't think Matt was into that lifestyle enough to base the plot of the book around it. I liked both Matt and Nic and enjoyed the book, it just wasn't my personal favorite.
I would recommend someone new to the series try Fight with Me or Play with Me first and if you like that, you will probably love the series. Her books are fun, romantic, and smutty in a cheesy way. She has never written a book without many references to how " wet and tight" they are, they have supernatural amounts of orgasms ect. You know what I'm talking about: Her books have very little angst, and when problems arise, it's quickly resolved. I love the books anyway, and have read them all. For those of us who have been dying to get to know Matt and to see Ms Proby write about a dom, let's me say this book does not disappoint, it hits the ball out of the park!
In Tied With Me, Matt meets the missing ingredient in his life in Nic Dalton; the owner of the cupcake store that readers have seen in prior books in the With Me Seattle series. I loved the prologue of this book, it pulls the reader right into Matt's world while allowing them to get to know Nic. The book then throws you right into the Montgomery family craziness as the story picks up at Brynne and Caleb's wedding a scene we saw part of in the prior book Safe With Me.
Ms Proby adds some wonderful moments to this milestone event moments that include a heartfelt and make me smile speech from Matt, Caleb's best man. Matt and Nic go from a moment of deep to connection, to misunderstanding, to Nic struggling to come to terms with what it means to be in Matt's life. The reader is allowed to clearly understand Matt, and his kink as Matt shows Nic his lifestyle he does it with words and actions. This ascent of the book is something I thoroughly enjoyed as Matt leaves no room for guessing as he is very clear with what he wants from Nic.
Matt is a man any woman would want by their side, I adored how Matt was so much more than just his kink for bondage.
Licensed to fill out: from Stranger Things to Star Wars, the tie-in novels continuing the story
The man who played such a key part in the Safe With Me and in bringing Caleb and Brynn together fights for his own happy while showing the woman he wants what it is like to be cared for and cherish and yes loved in the bedroom and outside of the bedroom. This book was a wonderful combination of new characters to love and visiting with characters who already held a place in my heart.
Nic's best friend Bailey, was used so well throughout the book to help the reader understand Nic's mindset and emotions. Bailey is someone I hope Ms Proby will decide to write more about! And speaking of characters I want more for, please please Ms Proby write a happy for Asher and Casey they are not what you think, yes you will have to read the book to find out more because I am not telling you. There were so many wonderful scenes in this book that reminded me why I love this series; it is amazed to me how Ms Proby builds unique relationships between each of the characters; I love Will having Matt and Nic over for dinner and Caleb's one on one with Matt both sets of interactions showed that these characters are so well developed.
In true With Me in Seattle fashion there were also group scenes; the pool scene with the whole gang was so enjoyable, containing the masterful Proby character interactions those who love her writing have become accustomed to layered with a turn of events that turns a fun day into a powerful interaction.
Tied with Me was more than just alone scenes or group scenes; it was a true glimpse into Matt's life. His interactions with Will made me love Will even more and the use of Caleb the brother Matt was closest to provided for wonderful moments that made me giggle, smile and forced me to remind myself that these characters are not real ok maybe they are because they do live in my heart.
Tied With Me also brings the reader a wonderful though at times heart in your throat moments with the couple who started it all, yes the reader gets Luke and Nat front and center for a pivotal scene that reminds all family is about love, those who support you and those who would do anything for you. Nope, again not telling you what happens, just that it truly adds to the story. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book as Ms Proby's talent for weaving a wonderful story into a hot read was again present in this book as the use of Matt's kink and his visits to the club opened a door for the author to paint vivid mental pictures for the reader as Matt shows this new world to Nic.
Also, the author use of "Kaleb" a book by Nicole Edwards was a wonderful addition to the story, opening communication between Matt and Nic. The With Me in Seattle series has slowly shown the reader the matriarch and patriarch of this family, Steve and Gail; well let me say I love Gail even more after this book. Tied with Me provided the reader with a scene that allows Gail to transcend her place in the background and thrusts her into the forefront of the story and the how do you get to happy part of the book. No, I am not saying more except I love Gail and I loved her making it so clear that family is what you make it.
Speaking of the happy, I loved the end of this book. It was so true to the characters build throughout the book! I also want to add though they say never judge a book by its cover; in this case the cover is just as hot at the contents inside and truly reflects the two main characters inside! I hope more authors take this approach.

In the previous books, its obviously been hinted that he is a bit more selective in his tastes when it comes to sex and has never found a woman that he could have a real relationship with. My heart has ached for him because he has seen his siblings find love and wonders if he will ever be so lucky So the story begins with a unique encounter between them. Nic Dalton is a baker and owns a cupcake bakery that has been used in previous books and I just love this gal. She is so fun and sweet. She is pretty down to earth and chill.
Her closet mostly consists of pajamas and her bakery uniform. She doesn't wear fancy dresses or goes all out because her bakery is her life. She is very very "vanilla" sex and didn't even know why or what many of these things are that she sees. But there is one man that intrigues her, who is a master at rope tying. And he samples his tastes on her in front of people And after a night of passionate sex and the most sensual night of her life, Matt gets called away on a family emergency and she never thought she would see him again.
So life goes back to normal somewhat until they bump into each other at a wedding for Matt's brother and sister in law and boy the chemistry is off the charts. Nic is very honest with Matt in how she feels about kinky play and she isn't sure that she could ever be enough for Matt. She doesn't want anyone to control her life and she refuses to be a "slave" for anyone, even if he is sexy and sweet like Matt. But Matt convinces her to take a chance on him and so they begin "courting" each other and exploring Matt's ropes.
Give in to this, Nic. I just loved everything about this story. I feel like this one was a bit more lighter compared to other BDSM romances out there. Because Matt just prefers his women to be tied up and Nic is definitely okay with that. I really liked how Matt is with Nic because even though they have powerful chemistry, we also see a strong friendship form between them.
Matt is such a "Good" man, he is a cop and is very protective but I also love how he encourages Nic to be herself and see the "beauty" beneath the surface. She is unable to have children and knows that Matt really wants kids. And yeah I felt for her in this story because I could see how much she wanted children especially in the get-togethers with his family, and even though I wish she had been a bit more honest with him earlier, their relationship is still new and I definitely understood why she pushes him away but I did love how she wins him back in such a sweet way!!
Every time I read another book in this series I'm left with a big silly grin on my face. Matt and Nicole's story was no different. Matt was always a bit of a mystery in the prior books. You just knew he had a dark side I mean that in the best sense of the word of course-Wowza!!
I adored Nicole. She was such a wonderful heroine who wasn't weak yet was able to show her vulnerability and kind hearted towards everyone around her. She was an independent woman who had a successful business and a Every time I read another book in this series I'm left with a big silly grin on my face. She was an independent woman who had a successful business and a wonderful BFF. I loved her sense of humor and great banter with Matt. I wanted to hug her when she opened up to Matt view spoiler [regarding her issues with having children. Of course his response didn't disappoint. Matt and Nicole's initial meeting was HOT!
Their chemistry was immediate and Matt assumed his role as Dom to perfection. His bossiness in the bedroom left me swooning. It's always such a treat to have the rest of the Montgomery clan playing a big parted in the stories. I laughed myself silly many times and their love and devotion towards each other is heartwarming. If you are a fan of this series, you are going to love Matt and Nicole's story.
Jan 05, AJ rated it really liked it Shelves: series-standalone , romantic , steamy. I love this series! Going back to it is like comfort food — comfort food that is full of romance, sex, smoking hot guys, and a hilariously rude and crude bunch of girls. One of the quieter Montgomery brothers, he is the second eldest, a dedicated detective, and has a previously undisclosed penchant for kink. During their first meeting during an erotica convention, no less!
Yeah, Matt is not shy about getting what he wants, and the two of them share a very intense, very passionate hook up. I really like this relationship. Matt is quite the dirty talker, and yeah, he likes his kink. Matt and Nic share a very strong connection, and that grows into something incredibly deep as they fall hard and fast for each other. There are lots of sweet moments with them together, both of them having the opportunity to be there for the other, and they laugh and tease and are very affectionate.
The big family get togethers are always a highlight in these books, and as the group grows, it just gets better and better. The boy talk and the girl talk is always hilarious, and I love how nothing is kept secret between them with talk of tattoos, piercings, and sex, all out in the open, and no topic of conversation is off limits.
I wouldn't say she's a slut, but her favourite shade of lipstick is penis. The romance is gorgeous, with plenty of opportunities to get all swoony over Matt and his dominant yet sensitive ways. View all 15 comments. Loved it. Can't wait for the next book. Nuff said! Slightly disappointed, because I had high hopes for this book. That was probably my first mistake, but it won't be my last! Don't get me wrong though, this was still an enjoyable read. There were a lot of aspects that I loved about this book, and then other areas that I wish were more developed.
Within the prologue and a flashback in the very beginning of the book, we find out 3. Basically, Nic attends a sex expo of sorts with her BFF-against her will of course. While there she is exposed to the many kinks of the world, but hones in on the bondage area of the expo. This is where she meets Matt. This leads to some horniness and then a one night stand.
Unfortunately, an unexpected phone call has Matt rushing from her home, never to be seen again. But wait Which is where their story is able to further develop. What I loved The general concept of this book. In my opinion, this however, is just very mild kink. I did, however, like seeing a softer side to the BDSM world, if that's even possible to believe.
The scene at the "club. However, I had a hard time believing this would happen within their relationship when it did, only because of Nic's "shyness. I also liked the fact that the whole gang was incorporated into this book. It was nice to see how everyone else's relationships have developed. Why not 5 stars? I was really hoping that Matt would have been a touch more Dominant. Matt just enjoyed the rope bondage more than anything, and it appeared that this was in an artistic type of way. Don't get me wrong he did provide dominance in the bedroom, I was just expecting it to be more.
Matt also calls himself Master Matt at the sex club he attends, but I just didn't get that vibe while at the club. I would have liked to see more involved with this part of the story. Maybe I'm being too judgmental?? I also wonder why his family had made such a big deal about his secrecy regarding the bondage from previous books.
I was expecting Matt to be over the top alpha with a total fetish for a very "proper" submissive. When in reality, he provided moderate dominance in the bedroom and was completely vanilla out of the bedroom. Granted, yes, he is still alpha and protective, it just wasn't the over the top like is presumed.
Also, their love story was a touch too fast for my liking.

Not necessarily insta-love for me, but some others may feel this way. I would have liked to see their relationship development a touch more slowly. Maybe I'm thinking along this line, because I read this book following a four book streak, KA marathon. So who knows? The drama that ensued to "tear the couple apart" was not all that surprising.
It was highly predictable, and did not provide me the type of angst I was looking for. Again, maybe this has to do with having my expectations too high. I did feel for Nic, I just felt it was a silly reason to cause so much drama over She breaks up with Matt because he deserves someone who can provide him children. I also didn't necessarily like the drama that ensued with another couple from the previous book. Okay, end of my rant. I'm a hard woman to please lately! Regardless, I will most definitely continue to read the rest of the books in this series! Okay, okay, I'm outta here.
Who wants needs this book or I might just die? Give me, give me, give me! View all 4 comments. I've been wanting to read about Matt since the second book in this series. When he comforted Jules when she felt bad for bitching at Nate. So Matt is not who I thought he was. Don't get me wrong he is a freaking awesome guy, I'm talking about his sexual preferences.
The fact that he has a little kinky secret kind of took me by surprise. And then I looked at the title of the book then the cover Of I've been wanting to read about Matt since the second book in this series. I enjoyed reading about Nic and Matt. Of course the other characters as well. I just love reading about then, and love that they are still a part of the story.

I'm so sad when characters of a series don't really show up in each other's books. As far as writing style, nothing has changed. It's still the same major drama-free style, which is why I love reading her books. Her books just make you giddy. As for Dominic, wish I could have seen a bit more of him. I know that he's rich Neil Montgomery papa , hmmmm still kind of iffy about what he did years back. God I can't even forgive a fictional character, watch out people of the real world, it seems I can hold a grudge.
Enjoyed the chemistry between Nic and Matt. So happy that I finally got my hands on his story : can't wait for the next book!! View all 6 comments. Mar 01, Victoria rated it liked it Shelves: bdsm. I'm a fan of the series and had big expectations for Matt but ended up feeling a bit disappointed. The writing was solid, I enjoyed the banter between the supporting casts of characters, but the romance was just I was hoping for something a bit more edgy and sexy. This was cute and sweet with a very small dash of kink.
Before I got to 3. Before I got to the middle of the book I was feeling a little bored and was hoping the bakery would get robbbed or a car bomb would go off or something to help move the story along. Overall, it's not what I wanted but it was a solid story and should work for those looking for a sweet contemporary romance with very minimal kink and not a lot of action. Another great addition to the series, Matt Montgomery is a Shibari master with a dirty mouth - A nice easy read.
Jan 01, Natasha is a Book Junkie rated it really liked it Shelves: arc. Is this psychological torture ever going to end? What could be next — a Montgomery biker? Resigned to her fate, she has focused on achieving financial security instead of creating a family, knowing that there would never be anyone else to take care of her if need be, and that the only person she could always depend on is herself. Matt Montgomery is a police detective, a natural protector and nurturer whose very particular Dominant tendencies in the bedroom have kept him from finding the right type of woman to satisfy both his sexual proclivities as well as his desire to form a family.
He has always lived a double life, his romantic conquests never getting introduced to the rest of the Montgomery clan, his relationships kept short-lived and private. Except, he would rather tie me up. Family is the connecting element in this series, continuously intertwining these characters and their stories, and in this instalment, the focus is on what truly constitutes a family bond.
The bondage aspect of the story only adds a kinky component to the bedroom scenes, and it remains more of a spice rather than a full flavour until the very end. This is not what I would call a BDSM type of romance by any stretch of the imagination as none of the characters fully embrace the lifestyle or behave consistently in that manner.
If I could wish for anything different in this particular book, it would be a somewhat richer plotline. All the focus is on the growth of the emotional connection between the characters, and I felt at times that a more plot-driven approach would have benefited the overall story. But apart from that, this is another extremely enjoyable instalment in the With Me In Seattle series by an author whose love stories continue to excite me and make me crave for more, and it is not to be missed.
Follow me on Facebook! Follow me on Twitter! Very enjoyable read. I couldn't wait to read Matt's story because he seemed like such a sweet guy and a real catch in the other books and I knew that he was into some kinky stuffand I was hoping it was not too kinky because I wanted to enjoy the story! Matt Montgomery was into a bit of bondage--particularly rope bondage Shibari and was a Master at a fetish club. He first meets the heroine, bakery owner Nic Dalton at a fetish festival. Nic's a petite, dark haired beauty who Very enjoyable read.
Nic's a petite, dark haired beauty who catches his eye while he's demonstrating his rope tricks at the festival. Nic is dragged there by her best friend Bailey, and Nic ends up doing something spontaneous with Matt that she'd never dreamed of doing.
When Matt's called away on a family emergency without getting Nic's number, she figures she's just a one night stand. Oh, how wrong you are, Nic Nothing all that angsty in this one. Nic and Matt get along great, have loads of chemistry, and Nic really meshes with the other women in Matt's family. Matt's a dream, even if he does have that little rope tying quirk!
He never pressures Nic into doing anything she doesn't want to, doesn't exhibit any asshat behavior, and Nic and Matt don't seem to have any "issues", except for some problems with her health that Nic likes to keep hidden. Matt likes to know everything about his woman, as Nic soon finds out If you liked the other books in this series, you're sure to like this one too. I enjoyed seeing Matt fall in love, and Nic seemed to be the perfect girl for him.
My only quibble with the book was that I wanted to understand Nic's past a little better--I wanted to know more about her family and why she wasn't particularly close with them. Other than that, an easy, steamy read, and a nice addition to the series. Aug 14, Nikki rated it liked it Shelves: insta-luving.
