Overview

Book two of The Pleasure Code

After the loss of her Dom and first love two years ago, the time has come for Kyla to again allow herself the pleasure of giving up control. She isn't looking for anything serious yet, just the comforting embrace of rope and a firm hand on her body for the night.

Rope-top Sawyer is extremely skilled and he doesn't do relationships—but he's fascinated by the gymnastics instructor who approaches him at a kink con. By the end of the day he's vowed to help her feel submissive pleasure again, and to introduce her to a few Doms she can choose from.

But as Sawyer breaks down Kyla's emotional defenses, his barriers also come down. Soon he can't imagine giving Kyla over to any other Dom—and Kyla can't imagine being with anyone else. When their feelings are put to the ultimate test, they'll learn that while taking risks in the bedroom is easy, taking risks in love is terrifying.

With this uneven melodrama, Archer makes promises she doesn’t intend to keep. Kyla Grant attends a BDSM convention, hoping to hunt and bag local rope bondage enthusiast Sawyer. Everything goes according to plan right up until the moment of actual intimacy, when Kyla is overwhelmed by flashbacks to the death of her previous lover. Archer repeatedly approaches the proposed subject, erotic romance with rope bondage, only to step aside, cut away, or fade to black. Sometimes the dodge happens through sudden emotional breakdowns in otherwise mentally balanced characters. Other times, it’s a clear choice on the part of the author to skip ahead to the morning after. The characters are also inconsistent and unreliable; supposedly dominant Sawyer frequently self-contradicts and engages in manipulation rather than erotic domination, and submissive Kyla seems intent on creating dangerous situations for herself. All could be forgiven for a little spice and sizzle, but the stilted prose and lack of chemistry make this a tedious and disappointing tale. (Mar.)

Night Owl Reviews - VRainey
The chemistry between Sawyer and Kyla is scorching. The sex scenes are hot and steamy... The main and secondary characters are realistic and engaging. Overall, this was a great book
Guilty Pleasures - Alyn Love
A story of love lost and hope found, Up in Knots will have you longing to be 'tied up' for hours with the seductive Sawyer and his kinky little Kyla.
