Review: Tied Up in Knots by Mary Calmes

Tied Up in Knots 
(Marshals #3)
by Mary Calmes
Release Date: September 16, 2016
Genre: M/M Suspense

Miro Jones is living the life: he’s got his exciting, fulfilling job as a US deputy marshal, his gorgeous Greystone in suburban Chicago, his beloved adopted family, and most importantly, the man who captured his heart, Ian Doyle. Problem is, Ian isn’t just his partner at work—Ian’s a soldier through and through. That commitment takes him away from Miro, unexpectedly and often, and it’s casting a shadow over what could be everything Miro could ever dream of.

Work isn’t the same without Ian. Home isn’t the same, either, and Miro’s having to face his fears alone… how to keep it together at the office, how to survive looming threats from the past, and worst of all, how to keep living without Ian’s rock-solid presence at his side. His life is tied up in knots, but what if unknotting them requires something more permanent? What would that mean for him and Ian? Miro’s stuck between two bad choices, and sometimes the only way to get out of the knot is to hold tight to your lifeline and pull.

I just completed Book 3 and the series is still going strong. Miro and Ian's relationship is getting stronger than ever despite all their fights. Oh, yes, they still fights all the time, which is part entertaining, part frustrating. Miro can't really deal with Ian constantly being away for his military duty. I guess Miro isn't really a good fit to be a military husband. No one is perfect and is perfectly okay to admit that you can't deal. These two will finally have to find a way to work around it.

We have a side plot in regards to Ian's military mates, which honestly, I doesn't really care for the outcome. Sorry. Then we have the pleasure to meet up with the villain in previous book again. I hate it, but it seems unavoidable. 

Book 3 ended on a happy note, quite mushy and sappy. There are some nice changes towards the end and I'm looking forward to what brings them next.
