Tied to You by Riley Hart
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
*~~*ARC kindly provided by the author to me in exchange for an honest review *~~*
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 other’s bodies as much as their company…to Miles’s 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.
I have to say this book captured me a bit more than the first novel, Gone for You. It is maybe because Miles is such a grumpy but caring character and his two sides really intrigued me. He is the most interesting character from all the four guys and it was already shown in Gone for You.
Miles carries also things with him he only hesitantly revealed to his best friends for years, and with Quinn he feel connected on a different level than with Oliver, Chance or Matt.
He first met Quinn as a one-night-stand and both have incredible hot sex. Soon the chemistry is more than between their bodies only and they share secrets and parts of their history with each other.
Miles shows sides he is hesitant towards the other and it is soon pretty clear that Quinn is something special.
Riley Hart wrote again a romantic but this time more kinky book than before. Miles and Quinn share the love for a light spanking and this is shown in sensual scenes and erotical interaction. The way how Riley is describing those scenes are hot as hell and the drawings by Sarah Jo Chreene give the reader an insight of how the guys look like. This is a pleasant surprise to have a few of these drawings in the book.
The emotional rollercoaster ride is believable and the way how she displayes Miles is sweet and I am pretty sure he still keeps my most beloved guy from all of them.
I won’t tell too much and say: read the book. You’ll find an excerpt of the book where you got an insight.
I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.

They made it to Miles’s car and to the 101 freeway before his cell rang again. “Oh fuck.” Miles rolled his eyes after looking at the screen.
“Your mom again?” Quinn asked from the passenger seat, snickering. “She offered to bring you chicken soup while I was blowing you. That’s some funny shit.”
“No,” Miles replied. “Worse. It’s Chance.” Who he had no doubt called because he’d gotten notice that Miles called off work today. Maybe this whole close-friendship-like-family thing wasn’t such a good idea after all. “What?” Miles said into the cell.
“You better be dying.”
“Oh, well your mom thinks you are. She’s convinced you’re somehow dying. I thought she was going a little overboard, but then she said you called off work, and I had all sorts of crazy thoughts—cancer, heart attack, but then I just remembered it was early as fuck and I’d gotten woken up because you’re suddenly a normal human being who doesn’t go to work once in a while. Then, I just wanted to kill you. It’d be easier if you were dying on your own.”
Miles gripped the phone tighter. “You’re all mental. Every single one of you. I don’t feel well. That’s it.” Was it really such a big deal that he didn’t go in to work today? Apparently, it was. Quinn was right. He was boring.
“You’re in a car. Why are you in a car, Miles?”
“I’m running away,” he answered. He probably should. It was the only way they would leave him alone.
Chance sighed. “Seriously…you okay, boo? Does this have anything to do with what had you upset Friday night?”
Miles looked over at Quinn, who stared back at him. He considered playing it off, making up some kind of excuse, but then he remembered that he demanded honesty from everyone else. What right did he have if he didn’t give it himself?
“I’m fine. I’m…going to the beach.”
“You hate the beach,” Chance replied.
Yeah, he usually did. He was looking forward to it today, though.
He risked another quick glance at Quinn whose brows were pulled together. Just as he thought. Quinn could hear Chance.
“I’m going with a friend,” Miles admitted. Should he have said boyfriend? Dude he was banging? Dating? They’d decided they were boyfriends.
“You hate friends…except us.”
Fucking Chance. “I don’t hate friends, you jackass. I’m driving so unless you really want me to die, I’m going to go.” He paused, then added, “And I’m bringing someone to Wild Side on Friday.”
“I’m hanging up now,” Miles told him.
“Don’t you end this call, Miles! You’re bringing someone to Wild Side and going to the beach? Who are you and what did you do with my best friend? I—”
Miles hung up before Chance could continue.
“You hate the beach,” Quinn said. “I mentioned the beach our first weekend and you said you didn’t hate it.”
It was then Miles realized that’s why Quinn had chosen it. For him.
Miles looked at him and gave Quinn another truth. “I don’t hate the beach today. With you.” And it hadn’t been as hard to say as Miles thought it would.
“We haven’t gotten there yet.”
“That part doesn’t matter.” Brutal fucking honesty.
