Title: Fit to be Tied (Marshals #2)
Author Name & Publisher: Mary Calmes (Dreamspinner Press)
Publication Date & Length: September 10, 2015 – 228 pgs
Deputy US Marshals Miro Jones and Ian Doyle are now partners on and off the job: Miro’s calm professionalism provides an ideal balance to Ian’s passion and quick temper. In a job where one misstep can be the difference between life and death, trust means everything. But every relationship has growing pains, and sometimes Miro stews about where he stands with his fiery lover. Could the heartstrings that so recently tied them together be in danger of unraveling?
Those new bonds are constantly challenged by family intrusions, well-intentioned friends, their personal insecurities, and their dangerous careers—including a trial by fire when an old case of Miro’s comes back to haunt them. It might just be enough to make Ian rethink his decision to let himself be tied down, and Miro can only hope the links they’ve forged will be strong enough to hold.
Mary Calmes has done again! Excellent! What I love most about this book was the connection to Miro and Ian. I loved them in the first book and this one was no different. I love the humor that Ms. Calmes add to her books. I always get at least one really good laugh.
I can always count on Mary Calmes stories to grab me and keep me entertained. Ms. Calmes has a writing style that is very easy to read. Can’t wait for the next book. Bravo Ms. Calmes on a job well done.
Light, Camera, Action! Reading this book is like watching one of those blockbuster action movies. You have your drama, your romance, lots of action with gun fire, mobsters and psychopaths. This book keeps you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end. So go get your popcorn and prepare to sit down for a few hours while you watch this captivating movie, in text form.
I agree with one other reviewer that this book is character driven. The stars, Ian and Miro, are your perfect “cop” couple. They drive this book home and captivate you by their relationship, possessiveness and blunt honesty. The verbal banter between Miro and Ian is charming, delightful, and funny as f… This would be a perfect series I can see on TNT or USA along the lines of Law and Order or Criminal Intent.
I hope there is a third book to this series where Ian and Miro get married. That would be wonderful to see.
If you like m/m law enforcement books, I guarantee you will like this one. Grab yourself a copy and expect to be drawn in and driven to the edge of your seat. As you can tell, I highly highly recommend this book.
