A man whose lifestyle is so different from her own…

Nic Dalton’s cupcake bakery is thriving. She serves both rock stars and locals alike, content with her growing business. But one adventurous night out with her best friend, Bailey, turns her life upside down. She meets a handsome stranger who makes her skin sizzle and her heart race. Their one night together is explosive and unexpected, but when he has to suddenly leave without taking her phone number, Nic resigns herself to never seeing him again.

…What will it take to trust and submit to his every desire?

Matt Montgomery is one of Seattle’s finest. He works hard, loves and protects his family fiercely, and is loyal almost to a fault.

And he has a penchant for bondage.

Matt enjoys the way a woman looks wrapped up in his ropes, and makes no apologies for his preferences. When he meets Nic at a fetish festival, the small, beautiful woman catches his eye, drawing him to her. His one night with her was everything he’s ever looked for in a partner, but is cut short because of a family emergency. Even before he sees her again weeks later, he knows he’ll never get her out of his system.

And he’ll do whatever it takes to make her his.

“Give in to this, Nic. Let me prove to you that I will be one of the best decisions you ever make.” –Matt Montgomery

Stacia Says…

I have loved every book in the With Me series by Kristen Proby, so of course I was dying to get my hands on Tied with Me, the latest book in the series. Within this series,  Kristen Proby has written about every type of hottie imaginable so far, a rock star, a sexy man with tattoos and a motorcycle, a movie star, a professional football player, and an ex-Navy SEAL.  So, it was fitting for the next leading man to be a sexy police detective that dabbles in BDSM.

“You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have.”

Matt Montgomery is a natural protector  and the one that his siblings lean on for support and strength. He has a great job as a Seattle police detective, but with his dominant tendencies and his “secret” fetish for BDSM,  he hasn’t been able to find the one person he can share his life with. That is until Nic walks into his life. He realizes that she isn’t the typical submissive, but something about her draws him in.

“Nic,… I don’t typically come on this strong, but I want to fuck the shit out of you right now.”

Shy and insecure Nic Dalton is the owner of a successful cupcake bakery. She loves her business and her close friends, but due to life-long medical conditions she  finds it easier to push people away then be hurt when she can’t live the life that most take for granted. After a chance meeting with Matt leaves her reeling, for once she wants more and finds herself interested in things she never thought she would enjoy.

 “Give in to this Nic, Let me prove to you that I will be one of the best decisions you ever make.”

As always with Kristen Proby books, the sexy portions of the book were off the charts! Nic and Matt definitely didn’t lack sexual chemistry and bringing in BDSM added a whole new aspect to the book. Matt was dominate in the bedroom, but he wasn’t your typical Dom who liked to control all aspects of Nic’s life; he knew when to assert his authority and when to back off.

Tied with Me also gave us a small glimpse back into the characters that we have all thoroughly enjoyed in the previous books in the series and we were also given a pretty obvious idea of who book #7 will be about. While I did enjoy this book, I felt like the storyline was either rushed or lacking some of the finesse that I loved about the other books. I felt like a lot of the focus was placed on the sexual relationship between Matt and Nic, which didn’t leave a lot of room for character development or plot growth. However, that wasn’t enough to defer me from reading future books in the series or even re-reading the previous books.
