ARC Review: Tied in Knots by Z. B. Heller

Tied in Knots
by Z. B. Heller
Genre: M/M
Publication Date: 5 February 2016

Roses are red, violets are blue. They tied the knot, what kind of crazy will ensue?
Ryan Keller and Brandon Ford have promised to be Tied Together forever. Seven years later, life is moving along according to their plan. Ryan gave up his job as a television producer to be a stay at home dad to their son, while Brandon works long hours as an OBGYN at the hospital.

With baby number two on the way, life's about to get bumpy when someone from Brandon's abusive past reappears. Fearing Ryan won't understand his feelings, Brandon confides in the handsome male nurse who's always had a thing for the doctor. When Ryan discovers the truth, he's hurt, betrayed, and uncertain if their family is as strong as he believed.

When a crisis arises with the surrogate carrying their second child, can Brandon and Ryan untangle to knots in their marriage to prove they can overcome anything that stands in their way?

First of all, I didn't expect Ryan and Brandon to have a sequel or a novella because the epilogue that we got in Tied Together was already perfect with a baby boy. So I'm not sure what to expect in here.

Right from the start, Ryan had me laughing my ass off from reading into his bizarre dream. Omg! I think I just wet myself considering I'm pregger. He is still the crazy, funny man that I adore.

Currently, Dr. Brandon is busy with his own private practice, while Ryan is a stay-at-home-dad. I thought Ryan was really awesome in this whole daddy gig and I love his relationship with his son. However, his relationship with Brandon was like any other old married couple, busy with work, not spending enough time together that further contributes to miscommunication or in this case non-communication.

We have a little drama when Brandon decided not let Ryan know about something that is happening with his family and decided to talk to one of his male colleague instead. We got a pissed off Ryan and an apologetic Brandon. Not to forget this pair of dads also decided to make an addition to their family.

I enjoyed catching up with Ryan and Brandon, and kid you not the last part of the book with their new baby was an intense moment that had me want to give a big hug to Ryan.

As a little girl it was always a dream for Z.B. Heller to become She-Ra Princess of Power. Since this dream was unobtainable, she spent what was probably way to long in college trying to "find herself". Becoming an artist scratched the creative itch until the stories in her head were getting to be to loud for her to get anything else accomplished. She lives in St. Louis with her husband, son and Flemish Giant rabbit Chloe. In her spare time she likes to read, stalk celebrities on Twitter and create the type of art that people scratch their heads about.
