Blurb: 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…
*This book can be read as standalone*
Review: Prior to reading this book, I had read Megan Erickson’s In Focus series, and loved it, but I apparently hadn’t been paying attention because this book wasn’t even on my radar. I’m so glad that I found it.
I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned before that I love a story where the bad boy and the nerd get together…but, I don’t think I’ve ever loved the trope as much as I did in this book. First of all, since I don’t think a review can be written about Tied to Trouble without the subject of bow ties coming up, I will just say that prior to reading it, I liked the look of a guy in a bow tie. After reading this book, I’m pretty sure I will never look at another bow tie without smirking and thinking of Chad and Owen (and probably blushing)…just so hot! Also, I have to throw in here that I thought Dapper Dick was awesome!
The chemistry between these two characters is off the charts. I loved the snarky and sarcastic and sometimes downright dirty banter between Chad and Owen. I was giggling a lot and, at some parts, completely laughing out loud. And, all right, probably sitting here at work on my break, blushing at certain parts too.
I haven’t read the first two books in this series, but now have them on my TBR list just so I can enjoy more of Megan Erickson’s writing. And it gives me a good reason to reread this book, once I finish the first two in the series. 🙂
