Katie Douglas is back with a book under her lighter name. Tie Me Down is sweet, loving, and pretty damn sexy. It’s a nice short read if you need to have something to read that’s a good steamy mood uplifter.
Alana is on the run from her BS asshat ex-boyfriend, Jimbo. She’s currently 5 months pregnant, and when she finally told him, he beat the shit out of her to try to make her lose it. So, when she got a chance, she grabbed his shitty car and left Seattle. Now she’s in Arizona and trying to deal with the horrible heat. When she tries to put some gas in her car, she ends up passing out and landing on the forecourt of the gas station.
Lawson and his brothers run the Lemon Tree Ranch. His brothers head out for the weekend on ranch business, leaving Lawson and one of their hands there. When they go to get gas, they get there just in time to see a pregnant woman collapse right in front of them. Lawson runs over to see if they can help, and he ends up loading the woman into his truck and taking her home.
Lawson is a wonderful man. He doesn’t have any ulterior motive in helping Alana. He just does it because that’s what a decent human being does. You help someone who is in trouble. He offered her a guest room for as long as she needed, and offered to help get her on her feet. And all this before he really got to know her or was really attracted to her. See, decent man. Decent man who likes to spank women, but it’s not like the two things are at odds with each other.
Alana is at what was my favorite part of my pregnancy. You aren’t tired from the first trimester and you aren’t feeling like a huge whale like in the 3rd trimester. You just have the 2nd trimester hornies. Ahhhh, how well I remember those days. But, she’s really a lost soul. She has spent too much time being run down and thrown away by her loved ones, so she’s just a little untethered from anything. Lawson turns into her rock, but in a good way. He gives her the support that she needs so that she can find herself. He doesn’t rescue her as much as give her the ability to rescue herself, I think. Either way, she really deserves to have a good man like Lawson.
My heart seriously broke when Lawson’s bros came home, and Alana reacted the way that she did. I mean, I knew that Jimbo was a total fuck, but up to that point, I didn’t realize just exactly how much of a total fuck he was.
OK, that’s all I have to say today! Go check it out! Happy reading!
