I'd do nothing but reading if I could (ok, maybe eat some great food, buy some fancy shoes between two books...oh, and spend some quality time with the gorgeous guy I married while I am on reading-break anyway...)

I wanted to love this, but some stuff threw me off.

All Kinds of Tied Down - Mary Calmes

This was a very enjoyable read.

I liked the beginning very much- liked the story and the characters.

The slow burn and the sexual tension.


Up until 50/60%.


Then it went into sappy fantasy land with lightning speed.

And besides the ultra-fast 0 to 100 in the relationship realm, the reality started to fade out as well. Suddenly everyone was super accepting with gays in general and in law enforcement. The side characters turned out bi or gay to at least 50%.


This threw me out of the story and the over the top love talk as well.


It somehow clashed horribly with the tough Green Beret character.


So I deduct 2 stars for the last third.

I am not sure I will check out the second installment...
