The main and secondary characters were interesting and realistic. Overall, I loved this story. I enjoyed Ms. Cade’s writing style. I will be on the lookout for more by her in the future. I found this book well written.
Carlie Milton is happy with where she is in her life. She loves her job, has great friends, and is in a good place with her father and brother. The only thing she is lacking is a love life. She seems to go from disaster to disaster. However, things look up when she is rescued from the latest disaster by Jake.
Jake Stone is part owner of Big Iron Fitness and part owner of Club 3, a BDSM club. Jake is a former Marine who seems to live his life fully in control and has an overabundance of self-discipline. Carlie shakes his world and Jake is at a loss as to how to handle it.
The chemistry between Carlie and Jake is blistering. I loved seeing how each affected the other in ways neither seemed to expect. They tried to fight the attraction to each other only to find out how much they cared for the other. The sex scenes were hot. I loved that the BDSM scenes were not too extreme.
She’s All Tied Up is the second book in the Club 3 series by Cathryn Cade. While this book is part of a series it can be read and enjoyed as a standalone with ease.
