Tied Up in Knots by Mary Calmes


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.

This was a great story. I have not read the previous ones and would recommend that, as I had to infer some relationships and previous things from the earlier books. However, it didn't really deter from this story.

Miro and Ian are good friends, but don't make the greatest couple. I found their chemistry slightly off – it was more friends who sometimes end up in bed together.

Miro hates that Ian can leave at a drop of hat for a mission and doesn't really understand how Ian can leave him time and time again. Ian is a no-nonsense kind of person and doesn't easily show his emotions. I think that's where the disconnect happens so easily in their relationship.

Miro continues doing his own job, being a Marshal and does it all while his own unit watches his back – especially when Ian is gone, who is his normal partner.

There is a lot that goes on in this story, it almost seems like filler. But when you get to the teeth of the story – the thriller aspect, while it was predictable, I enjoyed it a lot. I think that Calmes did a great job weaving everyone in.

I do wish that we had more of a resolution on the problematic characters – it seems to be just kind of hanging. However, that does give me hope for more stories in this series.

I can't write too much about the story without giving it away, so I will just say that the mystery is great and keep them coming!
