GR's Summary:

Between love and hate, there's a whole lot of trouble… 

Chad Lake only showed up at his sister's party for the free food, but when he spots an uptight nerd at the edge of the crowd, he can't resist trying to ruffle the guy's perfect bow tie and impeccable hair. The hottie's ready for him, though, and in the end, it's Chad who's left wide-eyed, his ears still ringing with the filthy things Bow Tie whispered in his ear. No one gets the upper hand on Chad. Ever. 

Owen Hawkins has heard all about the cocky Adonis from Chad's sister—the same sister who holds Owen's career advancement in her hands. He has every intention of steering clear of the other man…until Chad's sexy taunts push him too far. There's something intriguing about Chad, and even though Owen knows that getting tangled up with the infuriating man is trouble, he can't seem to stay away…

My Thoughts:

The Gamers Series has been a whole lot of fun, laughs, and sexy times!  I love these characters, and have learned more about gaming and cosplay through them.  The strong themes of friendship and family in this series really warm my heart.  If you're looking for light-hearted, fun, comedic, and erotic, then the Gamers Series is an excellent choice.

In Tied to Trouble, we get Chad Lake (Marley's brother), and Owen Hawkins (the Copy Editor for Gamers) story.  Austin, Marley's boyfriend and the owner of Gamers, is planning to propose to her.  So, he enlists the help of Chad and Owen to get everything ready for the big event.  During this time, Chad and Owen battle through an attraction, growing feelings for one another, and the conflicts that arise.

I really enjoyed Tied to Trouble, and was honored to be able to read and review the first LGBT title published by the Entangled Brazen line.  Chad and Owen were opposites, but they really complimented one another.  Chad was an artistic free spirit, and loved to fly by the seat of his pants.  On the downside, he had trouble with being responsible, stable, and organized.  Owen was introverted, series, organized, mature, and responsible.  However, he needed to relax more, and learn how to have fun.  Together, these two balanced one another perfectly.

Chad frustrated me a bit throughout the story.  His own insecurities within himself, as well as his stubbornness and immaturity at times, caused unnecessary problems between himself and Owen.  I loved how patient, sweet, attentive, and supportive Owen was towards Chad.  I was glad to see the amount of character growth that Chad underwent by the end of the story.

Together, Chad and Owen's chemistry was explosive.  They were a great pair, and I was rooting for them from the very beginning.  I was happy for the snippets that I got of Austin, Marley, and Grant throughout the story.  I also enjoyed getting to know Chad's good friend and co-worker, Ace.  I would love for Ace to get his own story.  (Hint, Hint ;)  Tied to Trouble was a wonderful addition to the Gamers Series. 
My Rating:

I give, Tied to Trouble, 4 Naughty, Fun, Delightfully Delicious, Scandalous Bow Tie Filled Stars!  I never knew a bow tie could be so much fun...

About Megan Erickson

Megan Erickson grew up in a family that averages 5’5” on a good day and started writing to create characters who could reach the top kitchen shelf. 

She’s got a couple of tattoos, has a thing for gladiators and has been called a crazy cat lady. After working as a journalist for years, she decided she liked creating her own endings better and switched back to fiction. 

She lives in Pennsylvania with her husband, two kids and two cats. And no, she still can’t reach the stupid top shelf.


  1. This sounds fun. I love opposite attract stories. Nice review, Lindy!
