Roses are red, violets are blue. They tied the knot, what kind of crazy will ensue?

Ryan Keller and Brandon Ford have promised to be Tied Together forever. Seven years later, life is moving along according to their plan. Ryan gave up his job as a television producer to be a stay at home dad to their son, while Brandon works long hours as an OBGYN at the hospital.

With baby number two on the way, life's about to get bumpy when someone from Brandon's abusive past reappears. Fearing Ryan won't understand his feelings, Brandon confides in the handsome male nurse who's always had a thing for the doctor. When Ryan discovers the truth, he's hurt, betrayed, and uncertain if their family is as strong as he believed.

When a crisis arises with the surrogate carrying their second child, can Brandon and Ryan untangle to knots in their marriage to prove they can overcome anything that stands in their way? (

Tied Together  and Tied in Knots read together make a 4.5 star read!
Yes, these two books read combined are a higher ranking for me than the books on their own….. why you ask? Well, because Ms. Heller does an amazing job at crafting a beautiful happy for this family!
If you have not read book 1, please stop reading this review and #1click Tied Together.
I loved Tied in Knots. From the moment I read the blurb, I knew I had to read this!

Tied in Knots is a visit with Ryan Keller and Brandon Ford, years later into their marriage.
It picks up a few years after the epilogue in Tied Together. The reader finds Brandon, Dr. Ford running his OBGYN practice while Ryan had decided to stay home with their son Ethan.
Ms. Zeller does an amazing job at keeping this real. Yes we still get Ryan’s humor, we still feel the connection between these two men but you know that marriage is hard and life is complicated.  And trying to provide for your family sometimes means you forget the small things that got you together in the first place.
Ryan and Brandon’s journey to marriage in book 1 took years as it is a second, well more like third chance romance. In Tied in Knots, the author so honors that journey as you will NEVER question these men’s love for each other.
When a crisis arises with the surrogate carrying their second child, the book became so powerful, it does often take an event to put life in perspective so in this case it all worked so well.
I adored this look into Ryan and Brandon’s marriage. I had so much fun witnessing them as Dad and Papa.
Ms. Heller thank you for reminding me that marriage isn’t always easy but it is so worth it!

About Z.B. Heller

As a little girl it was always a dream for Z.B. Heller to become She-Ra Princess of Power. Since this dream was unobtainable, she spent what was probably way to long in college trying to “find herself”. Becoming an artist scratched the creative itch until the stories in her head were getting to be to loud for her to get anything else accomplished. She lives in St. Louis with her husband, son and Flemish Giant rabbit Chloe. In her spare time she likes to read, stalk celebrities on Twitter and create the type of art that people scratch their heads about.

The Chronicles of Moxie is Z.B. Heller’s debut novel.
