Overview

Cara Carelli is a silver-tongued mafia princess, master manipulator, and the only woman I’ve ever loved. But she’s also smokin’ hot, sinfully sexy, and my ex-wife.

When Cara led me straight into a trap and pleaded for my help, I couldn’t say no. She thought she had the upper hand, but this time, I was in control and planned to make her beg.

They say all’s fair in love and war and turnabout’s fair play, but what starts out as a wickedly seductive ploy turns into a twisted game of the heart.

5 star Review Tied Down (Nailed Down #2) by Chelle Bliss & Eden Butler Wow, what a great book. Tied Down is a smoking hot, suspenseful read which had me gripped from the first to the last chapter.  Kiel is a journalist and when his ex-wife  Cara Carelli asks for my help I have no choice but to agree. However, since she has ties to the Mafia, he knows it will not be simple and more than likely dangerous.  I fell for Kiel right from the start, he was everything that I could imagine wanting and needing in my life and so much more. Cara was harder to engage with but eventually I warmed up to her.  There is so much anger and hurt between Kiel and Cara that the animosity almost leapt of the pages. Of course there is a fine line between love and hate and it is obvious that these two still have a deep love between them. As danger increases so does the intensity of their feelings. The chemistry between Kiel and Cara is scorching.  The mystery and suspense kept me riveted as I kept promising myself, just one more chapter until it was over.  These two authors obviously work well together as I was unable to determine where one author ended and the other picked up; a sign of a great collaboration . I look forward to reading more in the series.

I enjoyed reading this book! I love how Kiel & Car get back together. This story has a lot going on but it keeps you reading to find out what is happening and how it turns out. I recommend this book and the authors too !!!!!

I love both of these authors individually so when they get together I expect to be blown away and once again I wasn't disappointed. Tied down is a fast paced, second chance romance but full of so much more, a little action and suspense fill the pages. I LOVED Kiel but Cara took some getting used to, she didn't exactly scream worthy of forgiveness. Their story has twists and turns, some serious mafia shit and an attempt at rekindling something that should have died years ago. I really didn't like Cara at first, her begging seemed like BS to me, she was once again all about her father and herself, who cares about Kiel, lets bribe the man with money after screwing him over and ruining his life, career and all, years ago. Eventually she grew on me, I can't say I truly loved her but I did like her at least. Their hot together, there's no doubt about that, these brothers are so freaking hot and the secondary characters, I want everyone of them to have a story asap lol.

Another great collaboration between Chelle and Eden. Kiel Kaino is a crime beat reporter who returns to NY for a job. He also reconnects with his wife Cara Carelli, who he hasn't seen in 5-yrs. Cara needs Kiel's help, and will do anything to get it. There is a lot of steam between these two, but there is also a lack of trust. Regardless of how things ended 5-yrs ago Cara is family and Kiel will do everything he can to help and protect her. There is heat, and the danger will keep you intrigued to see what happens between Kiel and Cara. I volunteered to review an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Chelle Bliss and Eden Butler write together very well. The story is interesting and has a good pace. There's some suspence, angst, a** kicking, and a whole lotta love to wrap it all up in a bow. Kiel had a lot to forgive and I like that it wasn't just insta-love the second they saw one another again. The characters from book one are present and that was a nice addition nice, seeing a bit of how things have progressed. The brother's bond is shown to be even stronger. And Cara's family - or La Famiglia ? are quite an interesting addition to the tale. There are feels all over the place in this story - the best of course being love. Pick up this 5 star read today and immerse yourself in this very interesting world these two authors have created.

I loved this book. Chelle Bliss weaved a great love story with lots of twists, heat, and craziness all mixed in. Cara is a mafia princess that definitely has some making up to do to her ex. She has wronged him in the past and it has made them sort of enemies. I love the angst and anger in the beginning that has them struggling to reconnect. Cara needs her ex's help and has to struggle a bit to get it. Chelle brought a couple other characters from previous books into Tied Down. I loved how she brought them in throughout the story. Cara and her ex are thrown together and the attraction rears its head again and its amazingly hot. I really liked the twists and turns and constant suspense. You really are just reading enjoying the story and bam she hits you with a plot twist and action that throws you for a loop. I don't want to ruin the plot but please one click this amazing book. It has heat, suspense, great characters and so much more.

What a brilliant writing duo these two ladies are both very talented authors in their own right but together Wow!!!!!. This book has it all it’s hot it’s intense it’s full of love and it’s dangerous, what a great combination this couple are a very hot normal guy with his mafia princess. Kiel and Cara may be separated it may have ended very badly but can he turn her down when she is desperate for his help, they may be over but Kiel will still protect what is his even if it’s in name only.
This book will keep you on the edge of you seat just when you think you have it all worked out Ms Bliss or maybe it’s Ms Butler will throw another spanner in the works and have you guessing all over again. I loved the love hate relationship that Kiel and Cara have not only does it make for an extremely passionate read it also makes this couple realistic. This book really flows and you have no idea which author wrote which part and that for me makes it the perfect writing duo, can’t wait for instalment number 3 in this brilliant series.

Loved this second book. He is such a jerk at first but then he melts your heart and she is so tough but warm inside. Perfect for each other.

I couldn't wait to get my hands on Kiel's book as he was one of my favorite characters in Nailed Down. Eden Butler and Chelle Bliss exceeded my expectations and Tied Down is fantastic!!! It is quite the page turner and I didn't want it to end. Kiel's sexy, alpha and domineering persona is extremely appealing and attractive. Kiel and Cara are ex-lovers and initially I wasn't to fond of Cara due to what she did to Kiel and the way she ended the relationship. Cara is feisty, persistent, she grew on me and I loved her. Tied Down is fast paced, thrilling and action packed. It's well written, very addicting and I was on the edge of my seat with anticipation waiting to read what was going to happen next. The storyline is engaging with a lot of hot and steamy sexy times. Kiel and Cara's romantic connection, solid attraction and sexual chemistry is on FIRE!!! Their love/hate relationship makes for a very interesting and sometimes comical read. Both authors did a great job of demonstrating that Kiel and Cara's underlying attraction and intense love for each other has always remained. I highly recommend reading Tied Down. Chelle Bliss and Eden Butler are a talented writing duo and I am certainly looking forward to reading more books from them.

You guys! If you thought Nailed Down was hot, wait until you get your hands on Kiel! I mean he is one smoking hot man. And Cara, she is one bad chick! These two had their issues, to say the least, but when trouble comes around they are pulled back together in the craziest way. This is one face-paced, page turner! The suspense in knowing what is going to happen and when and where will have you devouring this book in one setting!!

Second Chance with Super Chemistry! Tied Down is the second book in The Nailed Down series but it is the first I’ve read and can be read as a standalone. The book starts off a little slow and I had trouble getting into the story at the beginning. But once it started going and picked up pace, Boy did things heat up and speed up! Cara is a mafia princess, stubborn and headstrong. She is married to Kiel but hasn’t seen him for five years and he might not be ready to forgive her. “You threw me to the wolves without worrying about my feelings, or hell, even my life.” Cara calls on Kiel for help and he ends up right back in her trap, but maybe that’s where he wants to be! Tied Down is a second chance romance with action, suspense, and some really HOT chemistry between these main characters!! -4 Stars!- -Diane-

Loved this crazy and thrilling romantic journey and could not put it down, was hook to every word from beginning to end.... Kiel and Cara are a crazy complicated couple that are getting a second chance at true love but can they really put this relationship on the right track and keep it there this time??? loved the banter, sparks and undeniable passion between them. Highly entertaining and emotionally thrilling story.

I received a copy and voluntarily left a review and all opinions are my own. After meeting the Kaino brothers in Nailed Down, the first book in the series, I couldn't wait to jump in bed and be Tied Down with Kiel and Cara in Eden Butler and Chelle Bliss's newest steamy read! Boy, I thought that Kane and Kit and their best friend smoldering level romance was hot but Cara and Kiel take things to a combustible level with their love/hate relationship. If there was ever a reason for hate sex, they have it in spades! These two kept me on my toes emotionally with their back and forth and tumultuous past. I couldn't help but fall for them both extremely hard in between the deceit and danger. Cara Carelli comes off as spoiled, pure evil, and self centered at first until you get to know her and see the weight that familial obligations has put on her shoulders and her love life. Cara has had to make some hard choices in life concerning Kiel but no one can deny the love and passion that she feels for him. Who knew being a mafia princess could be so riddled with painful decisions, unrequited love, and bullets. If I thought I was in love with Kane nothing could have prepared me for the heat that Kiel delivers to your heart and libido with his passion for Cara and his willingness to do anything to protect her even when they are at odds. He made my heart pound and kept my emotions in a tailspin with everything he did. Kiel would have me on my knees begging to be his “Little Goddess” anytime and anywhere! Chelle Bliss and Eden Butler deliver a romance that have you swinging back and forth between the emotions of hate, desire, and love so fast that Kiel and Cara will make your head and heart spin! I highly recommend Tied Down for a love completely immersed in suspense, all consuming passion, and intrigue that your senses are on constant overload. I cannot wait for these two powerful and over the top talented authors to give us more of their brilliant minds with more of their genius characters and riveting story lines!

What another great story. I stopped to wonder all the emotions and feelings that Kiel was feeling. Here he was still in love with Cara his wife. He was feeling betrayal, hurt, anger, and so many other emotions as well. He had to wonder how he could of been fooled to think she loved him. Believe it or not I felt sorry for Cara. I can not imagine what it was like to be raised as the mafia princess. She had dreams she never could live because of her father. She lived to please him. She even gave up her husband because he was not the ideal man her father would of approved of. I loved the chemistry that was between Cara and Kiel. It shows no matter what, love will find away. I also love the hot steamy parts that the author included between these two. There are a few surprises in this story and some I was not expecting. This was a great story and glad I got a chance to read the book.

Terrific! What an exciting read! Hot and steamy kept me riveted until the very end! These authors knocked it out of the park with Kiel and Cara's story!!!
Rinsky13 More than 1 year ago
Wow and all that good stuff. I totally loved Kane, but I gotta say Kiel may have edged him out a bit. He’s a total bad a**, giving his all to a woman who may not have totally deserved it (at first, though I still may have a little grudge against her lol). He got his licks in, then became a real man, an awesome one at that. What can I say, I just totally fell for him and all his hotness. And intenseness. And sexiness. And when it came right down to it, loyalty and love. There was also lots of action going on, and danger. And once again, Eden and Chelle wrote a book you just can’t put down! I hope there’s more to come from these two amazing authors!!

This is the second book in this series, however, it can absolutely be read on a stand alone basis. Tied Down is quite a quick read and on that basis, I didn't feel that we really delved that deep into the characters, however, I did really enjoy it. Tied Down a real page turner, the story flows well and it's fast paced and had me on the edge of my seat throughout. Of course, this book has some real hot sexy times, but the story itself is suspenseful and engaging. Overall a solid read and I really look forward to more from this series. I was provided with a copy of this book from the Publisher; there was no inducement or obligation and I have opted to leave a review.

What can you say about Keil and Cara? Their chemistry is off the charts and this story was so easy to get lost in. The unique family dynamic in this story and the relationships between the characters really made me want it to just keep going on and on. I loved Tied Down and I hope to be reading more from this family and the other characters soon.

I think this review is going to start in much the same way as my review for the first book in this series. There was lots that I liked about this story but there was also parts that I didn't. I really liked Kiel, he was a real stand up guy considering how wronged he had been. I loved his protective side and I liked that he didn't make it too easy for Cara at the beginning. You really felt how deep he had been betrayed by Cara. Not something he could get over easy and I think that empathy towards him helped when he was a little cruel to Cara. He's the sort of man you want in your corner when s##t hits the fan. Cara I had to warm up too, I kinda thought she was just a totally spoilt brat so it took me awhile to start routing for her. She a strong women in a male dominated world so she's got to have that tough outer shell otherwise she'd never survive. I liked her no-nonsense attitude and she takes no prisoners when she's rilled up. She's definitely got a soft spot saved up just for Kiel. They've got good chemistry together and they certainly know how to warm up those bed sheets. I think my biggest negative with the story was that I just didn't feel like the story always flowed well. There's a big scene towards the end and it just felt very bitty to me, it wasn't a smooth read. I haven't read Chelle's co-author Eden Butler and maybe thats my issue with it. I never have this problem with any of Chelle's previous work that I've read and loved so I think I need to read some of Eden's separate books to get a proper feel for her work. I'll still be picking up the next book in this series and very much looking forward to those stories.

I loved Kiel and Cara's story! It had a lot more action than the 1st book, back and forth angst, and sexiness. There were some new interesting characters you'll want more of and we got a little more from Kane and Kit.
