Readers if you haven’t read Playing the Pauses (read my review and thoughts here ) I highly recommend reading that first. Tie Me Down by Michelle Hazen is what happens after the last page in that book.

It’s time to see how Danny and Kate are now, will they really have their happy-ever-after? It’s an adventure that shows what we really need isn’t always what we get. Further more, it isn’t always how we planned or what those in our life expect. However, if we don’t ask, then how can we get it? We deserve everything we want and shouldn’t stop until we have it.

Danny O’Neil and Kate have it all, dream jobs, hot chemistry, and they both live hard and play harder. Will their love survive the new challenges with Kate’s job? Will Danny find a way to communicate his feelings when things take an unexpected turn?

Living the life of a rock star has its challenges and managing one requires control, order, and the ability to put others before oneself. Sometimes. Will Kate finally risk it all to save the one thing she can’t live without? Is Danny really ok with all of Kate’s  traveling despite his frequent gifts?

Don’t miss the conclusion – it’s full of heart squeezing moments, life changing decisions and the creative expression we discovered when we saw Danny and Kate last. I have a new appreciation for art and am feeling inspired.

I received this ARC from Barclay for a fair and honest review. I give this book three flames of heat. Spicy  – Best enjoyed with your favorite iced-beverage, a cozy chair, and maybe a fan.


 From the Author **This is a sequel to Playing the Pauses, not a standalone. However, you don’t have to read the rest of the series to understand these two.**

 In my purse, a text message waits on my phone, but I don’t check it.

My assistant needs more supervision than I can afford to give him, the production manager’s blood pressure could really use me running interference between him and the neurotic pyrotechnics specialist, and I should ride the bus tonight to try to repair my working relationship with the backup dancers. I have a hundred places to be and the only one I want to inhabit is Danny’s apartment, in his beautiful silence that always stretches to make me a comfortable part of it.

It’s enough to make me wish Danny said I love you. He thinks it’s absurd to repeat a sentiment I already know is true, but in moments like these where I’m falling a little short in every area of my life, I could really use the simple comfort of those three words. I pull out my phone to check his text, even though I know it won’t say what I need it to.

Sure enough, the screen doesn’t fill with words. Instead, it’s a picture.

I squint in the dim backstage lights, turning up the brightness until I can make out a sketch in the spare, soft lines of his characteristic charcoal.

It’s of me, asleep with my hair pooled beneath my relaxed cheek. The lines of my face are graceful, more beautiful than they ever look in the mirror. The care with which he constructed my image just from memory makes me catch my breath, tears burning at the corners of my eyes.

He misses me. And this is the only way he can say it.
