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.

Becs’ Review


Tied With Me is the sixth book in the With Me In Seattle series.  Every book in this series is a complete standalone novel and there are no cliffhangers.  It is not necessary to have read the previous five books in the series to fully appreciate this story.


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


Kristen Proby is one of my go-to authors when I find myself in need of an alpha hero that I know I’m going to love and a fantastic, sexy romance that will completely fulfil me and that’s exactly what I got when I read Tied With Me.  I’d just read a book that had disappointed me and this was the perfect remedy – Kristen’s never yet let me down.


This time it’s the turn of Matt Montgomery who we got to know a lot better in Caleb’s story, Safe With Me but he’s always been a bit of a dark horse.  He’s one of Seattle’s Finest, a detective, and has always been very serious, very sober and not very forthcoming.  He’s been the quiet observer for many books and his sexual proclivities have only been been hinted at but I’ve been dying to get up close and personal with this dominant man.


Of course, he’s totally gorgeous with those delicious Montgomery genes.  He’s a dominant but he’s not too hardcore – his penchant is for seeing women in his ropes.  He’s not a sadist and he doesn’t carry his kink through to the rest of his life– he just likes to be in control in the bedroom and, oh boy, is he delicious when he’s doing it!!  I really enjoyed the sex scenes in this and if you’re worried that you’re going to be pushed a little too far outside your comfort zone, don’t be – there’s nothing too extreme here, just a few restraints and a lot of domination.  It’s sensual and hot and you’re going to love it!

Matt first met Nic at a fetish festival and the prologue fills this in beautifully for us.  Nic doesn’t believe herself to be submissive – for varying different reasons that you’ll learn as you read the book, she needs to keep her life in control.  Giving up that control to someone is terrifying to her and something she tells herself she cannot possibly do so she runs from that sublime first encounter that she had with Matt but she cannot get this dominant man out of her mind and running into him again at Caleb’s wedding has her on the run once more!


“Nic,” he whispers and kisses the corner of my mouth, then sweeps his lips down my jawline to my ear. “I don’t typically come on this strong, but I want to fuck the shit out of you right now.”


Matt’s not about to give up – he thinks he’s found the perfect woman and he’s not letting her get away that easily and so we embark on another winning Kristen Proby erotic romance and this woman never fails to deliver and Tied With Me is surely going to be another massive bestseller for her.


I enjoyed every second of this – found myself grinning goofily at the Montgomery clan and their get togethers, revelled in the growing relationship between Matt & Nic and enjoyed every second of their story.  It’s hot, it’s sensual and I just couldn’t put it down.  Deep at the heart of every Kristen Proby novel is a beautiful story of love and affection and that’s exactly what you get with Tied With Me with the added bonus of some very sensual dabbling in the world of BDSM with a strong safe, sane and consensual message.


And of course, you still get her trademark humour…….


Well, let me put it this way. I wouldn’t say she’s a slut, but her favorite shade of lipstick is penis.


That line really made me giggle.  So, in conclusion, another fantastic winning romance from Kristen Proby who is definitely the Queen of elegant smut for me!


4.5 kinky stars
