In the fourth sexy romance by the New York Times bestselling author of Tangled and Twisted, Drew and Kate can’t wait to tie the knot—if they can survive the pre-wedding festivities.
For most of my life, I never imagined I’d get married. But Kate did the impossible: she changed me. I think we can all agree I was pretty frigging awesome before, but now I’m even better.
The road to this day wasn’t all rainbows and boners. There were mistakes and misunderstandings worthy of a Greek tragedy. But Kate and I made it through with our inexhaustible lust, boundless admiration, and everlasting love for one another intact.
That being said, there were some unexpected incidents in Vegas last weekend that could have been a problem. It was kind of... my final test.
I know what you’re thinking—what the hell did you do this time? Relax. Let’s not judge, or call for my castration, until you've heard the whole story.
And hold on tight, because you’re in for a wild ride. Did you expect anything less (goodreads)?


Tied was a delightful and fun ending to the Tangled series. 
Plot: A child and a few years later, Kate and Drew were finally ready to tie the knot. The only ritual left was the bachelor and bachelorette parties, and to ensure the best time for all revelers, the two lovebirds agreed on a joint party. In Vegas. Oh. Yeah. It was that kind of party. 

Tied was fun! There were fun misunderstandings and awkward situations, but nothing too dramatic. I guess with the wedding on the horizon, Chase didn't want to make it too difficult for our happy couple! Just like in the other books, Tied read like a TV show and I would read about this group of friends any day of the week.

Characters: Like I said, Tied read much like a beloved TV show. I would compare it to Friends but I've never seen Friends so that analogy stops here. Let's just say, it was very much so a sitcom. This was because the characters were so unique and meshed well together.

 It was such fun to see Drew's final evolution, he was now a dad and you could see how his priorities completely changed from his introduction in Tangled. Oddly enough, Kate felt like a secondary character to me. I felt that she was only mentioned when it involved Drew and that took away all of that individuality that Chase built in Twisted.

Worldbuilding: Las Vegas was the perfect setting for this book, especially since Chase had exhausted New York as a scene in the previous three books. Chase visited the typical places you would associate with a Bachelors/Bacherolette party and the setting itself easily put me in the 'party' mood.

Short N Sweet: Tied was a very fitting 'farewell' to a beloved series.
