ARC Review: Tied to Trouble by Megan Erickson

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 is part of an M/F series but can be read as standalone.

Dani's rating:


- Owen


- Owen & bow ties

- Owen with a bow tie ON

- Owen with a bow tie OFF

- Owen with a bow tie wrapped around his dick

- Read that last sentence again.

This book is fun and very (VERY) SEXY. I was never bored.

But I was annoyed. With CHAD. More than once.

Owen is such a hot geek, all uptight, smart, and organized, but a total sparkler in bed. It's so hot when geeks get toppy.

But Chad ... Chad doesn't deserve Owen. He just doesn't. He's a douche time and time (and time!) again. He's insecure and has the emotional maturity of a 13-year-old. He does change ... eventually, but I was not as quick to forgive as Owen. So Chad was a problem. At least for me.

Another thing that didn't work for ME (because I'm so over and done with M/F) is the focus on Chad's sister, Marley, and her boyfriend. They are the MCs from book 1, and in this book, Austin is planning on proposing to Marley.

Good for him.

I just didn't need The Proposal to take up so much page time. Owen and Chad are both roped into helping Austin with his elaborate plan, which made me want to curl up into a fetal position and whimper. Because.

Public proposals are so NOT my thing, you guys; I got anxious just reading about it.

This was a great read and generated a lot of discussion among my friends. That is always the sign of a good book. Megan Erickson is an auto-read for me. She's a very engaging writer, and her books never disappoint.

I recommend for an easy read with a bit of angst, plenty of STEAM (beds are highly overrated!), and a pretty awesome HEA/epilogue.

Get the book:


Good friends, good books and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.
