Warning: this book contains: no holes barred kinky sex scenes, wicked rope play, blunt language, and yowza! lots of hot cowboy nekkidness.
Any additional comments?
This is my favorite book in the series so far. I absolutely loved Skylar and Kade and sweet baby Eliza. I’m not always a fan of couples having children in an erotic romance novel, not every author can pull this off authentically. But Lorelei has written a wonderful love story that captures the the joys and difficulties in becoming an unexpected family while managing to keep the romance, and Sexual chemistry SMOKING HOT - Extremely HOT....... Kade is one amazing Man ;)<br/><br/><br/>They only dated briefly but Kade fell hard and fast. Unfortunately, things didn't work out and they broke up and went their separate ways. Kade was going through a hard time and he volunteered to live on a remote area of the McKay ranch for a year for a cattle grazing experiment. In the mean time, Skylar discovered was pregnant with Kade’s baby. Not knowing where he went and not having anyway to contact him, Skylar was on her own. When Kade returned a year later and realized he had a three month old daughter with Skylar - whom he’s been in love with since before they broke up - he becomes determined to be a father to his daughter and charm his way back into Skylar’s bed and ultimately her heart. <br/><br/>Rebecca Estrella is a very talented narrator. Her voice changing skills are magic and she always captures me and hold me in with-in a story...<br/>

Kade is the sweet and sensitive cowboy that defies the wild Mckay bad boy reputation of his family. He has to suffer the repercussions of his twin brother's bad behavior. Skylar is a no non-sense, driven business woman who has serious trust issues so when Kade pretends to be his twin brother while dating Sklylar the fallout has serious consequences. It gets hot and sexy when Kade shows Skylar how good it feels to give up control.
For the squeamish - explicit sex scenes, oral sex, anal sex, spanking, dirty talking and rope bondage.

I found myself missing an edge or excitement in this story.
The sex is spicy but I had a hard time caring about these characters. I'm also not a big fan of a writer introducing me to so many other characters that I can't keep track and don't care to. There was lots of useless chatter between these side characters. It was almost like this book was a vehicle to promote the other books of the writer.

While I liked the main characters Skylar and Kade, the book needed a reality check. Plot: Sky gets pregnant and can't find Kade to tell him. Kade finds out a year later and insists on being part of baby's life.
First, Kade is an identical twin who is always being mistaken for his disreputable brother. When confronted by Sky (who was stood up by twin), Kade didn't pull out his wallet to prove his identity. No, he pretends to be the bad boy brother. Why???
Next, Kade volunteers to work in the Wyoming wilderness for an entire year, where Sky can't tell him the news. However, during that year, Kade was informed of a death in the family and came home briefly for a funeral. Since he wasn't in the military or the jungle somewhere, it just didn't make sense. And who wouldn't take a satellite radio or something to communicate in case of an emergency.
There were some amusing moments when Kade and Sky were learning to parent together but not enough to keep my interest.

Maybe it's that I'm "binge-listening" to this series, but things became a bit redundant for the first time since I began listening. Kade and Sky were G-rated compared to the previous books. Maybe LJ was grasping for ideas 4 books in. Don't get me wrong, the storyline was decent and the smokin hot sex was one point as usual, but overall, it just didn't do it for me.
I'm anticipating some of the other character's stories, such as Keely, Cam, and sexy cousin Kane!! Although this story wasn't a favorite of mine, this has been a great series so far, I highly recommend it!
Would you listen to Tied Up, Tied Down again? Why?
Yes I would listen to ALL THE FOUR BOOKS again!!! Why? because they are just so amazing. Full of detail, family life, passion, friendship, pain, love, so bloody amazing!
What other book might you compare Tied Up, Tied Down to and why?
Only fair to compare to her other books in the same series as no other can compare. So far, for me, books 1 to 4, all amazing. None less than the other which is usually the case. Not with these. All are brilliant. Different and just as fantastic.
What about Rebecca Estrella’s performance did you like?
Again, I'm so glad that the narration is consistent and continues to be Rebeca. She totally complements this series. A perfect match.
Any additional comments?
I'm ready for book 5. Have listened to 1, 2, 3 and 4 in less than 2 weeks, they're that good!

What do you think the narrator could have done better?
She is just really limited - in my opinion. She is not bad but not exceptional either.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Kade's realization that 'nice guys finish last'.

As the summary warns: This book contains: no holes barred kinky sex scenes, wicked rope play, blunt language, and yowza lots of hot cowboy nekkidness.<br/><br/>This series is a guilty pleasure.

I've read every book in this series at least twice. the story is beautiful, the characters are sexy and then narrator is fantastic! For me, this is one of those series that I love to come back to and revisit every now and again.
