My Review of "Tie Me Up" by Lauren Hawkeye

By Lauren Hawkeye
Pub date:
October 1, 2011
ISBN: 978-1-426-88547-1

Blurb: Barbara always thought of Ethan as her little brother’s annoying best friend, and she was sure he just considered her his friend’s nerdy big sister. Until the hot night after her brother’s wedding. Alone in the heat, it’s clear Ethan sees her in a way she never saw herself: as a sexy, sensual woman. And for the first time, Barbara feels ready to break free from the painful memories that have haunted her for too long—by exploring her passion for Ethan…

Book two of 
Lauren Hawkeye’s Erotic Me series.

My Review of Tie Me Up:

As I said in September, I have agreed to review Lauren Hawkeye’s Erotic Me Series from Harlequin Spice Briefs, one review each month, Sept 7 [Link], Oct. 7th, Nov. 7th and Dec 7th  through Bewitching Book Tours. The second  book, Tie Me Up, was pretty similar to the first, short and spicy just as one would expect from Spice Briefs, as I said about the first book. Again, I loved the situation of having a full house of relatives and friends after a wedding, this time the change being the lead character was a guest. The heat of the evening came into play again, but in a bit of a more amusing way this time around. Her main character was again well-written, flaws and all. The set-up, again (sorry to keep repeating this word) of knowing, this time Ethan, prior creates tension before it even all begins, even more so this time as he knows about Barbara’s past. The sex was hot with great moments beyond the ordinary. But, this time again,  which is really weird, I was disappointed in two elements, both situational,  that seemed unrealistic to me: one being how Barbara responded a few times to her past in her given situation and two which was just a bit of an ick factor for me – making love in mud. But, again (LOL) I enjoyed the read enough to over-look them and still have fun with the story.  I am looking forward still to reading Book Three.

Lauren Hawkeye is a writer, theatre enthusiast, knitting aficionado and animal lover who lives in the shadows of the great Rocky Mountains of Alberta, Canada.
She’s older than she looks—really—and younger than she feels—most of the time—and she loves to explore the journeys that take women through life in her stories.
