His heart is tied to his past…
When Sole Regret’s rhythm guitarist, Kellen Jamison, vowed to be faithful to his fiancée and love her forever, he meant it. He never expected to lose her to cancer so early in life. He’s certain he’ll never love again, but destiny has another plan for him.
Her heart is tied to her work…
Grammy-winning classical composer and piano virtuoso, Dawn O’Reilly, is overwhelmed with music-writing deadlines, a fickle muse, and high-expectations. She doesn’t have time to find love, but chance seeks to interfere with her carefully devised plans.
They’re bound to become entangled…
From the instant Kellen hears Dawn’s latest musical composition, his spirits rise. The stirring melody and the remarkable woman responsible for its creation are impossible to resist. His attraction is undeniable; her passion unquenchable. Kellen teaches Dawn there’s freedom in bondage, while her sensuality drives him to unleash his tightly controlled self-restraint. Will the ropes Kellen uses to secure Dawn’s body be the force that binds them together or ultimately sever all ties between them?
Tie Me is Sole Regret’s rhythm guitarist, Kellen Jamison’s, time to be in the spotlight.
In early books we have learned that Kellen “Kelly” is deeply affected by the loss of his fiancée, Sara.
Ms. Cunning does not disappoint this story. It is hot, powerful and Kellen’s story will pull at your heart strings
As Kellen is struggling with trying to release the pain of losing Sara, he is drawn to the music being made my Grammy-winning classical composer and piano virtuoso, Dawn O’Reilly.
Dawn is everything Kellen has not been attracted to in the past. Listening to Kellen “rationalize” what is Ok to do without Sara will have your heart breaking for this man who so deserves to be happy .
As these two explore their common love for music and as they allow themselves to feel the effect music has on each of their souls, the reader can feel the connection they share.
The struggle Kellen feels as he battles feelings he thought he would only even feel for Sara is tangible, his struggle is one that will have you shaking your kindle, trying to get Kellen to see is allowed to move forward.
As always I also enjoyed the conversations between the band members, at the end of the book there is dialogue between Kellen and Owen that is classic; reflecting perfectly the personality Ms. Cunning constructed for each.
This series is told as a series of One Nights with a band member, though I wish they were longer, I was struck by how much emotion Ms. Cunning squeezed into this read.
Your heart will ache for Kellen, you panties will melt for Kellen, you won’t be sure if you feel bad for Sara for dying young or if you somehow start to hate a dead woman. But in the end you will be rooting for Dawn and hoping she can get Kellen to Live and Love.
No, I am not going to tell you how this ends, I will say there are still many open pieces surrounding the band members and Yes, I want more!!!
I am very much looking forward to Tell Me (One Night with Sole Regret, #6).
Ms. Cunning has created a wonderful cast, each band member has his own personality and their interactions with each other for a wonderful series, we highly recommend it.
