So this it what I was working my way towards...
Twisted and Tied - Mary Calmes,Tristan James

the fourth and final 'Marshal's book' on audio. That I was more than happy to listen to the series again from start to finish on audio is definitely an understatement. Neither Mary Calmes nor Tristan James has disappointed me on this series. While I love all things Mary Calmes...'The Marshals' are bar none my favorite and this book was simply the icing on the cake. I would happily take more Ian and Miro any day and in any way that I could get it...whether it's a full length novel, a novella...a short story or if all else fails revisiting the series again and again on audio...these guys just do it for me.

 

Psst...in case you didn't read my original review which contained a few more thoughts on this story here's a link...Original Review: Twisted and Tied

This really was more about the Mary Calmes than the Christmas, or at least...
What Can Be - Robert Nieman,Mary Calmes

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

 

I gave this one 5 stars when I originally read it and I'm sticking with that. I loved this story when I read it back in 2011...seriously that's how long ago I read this so...sorry there's no review by me for this one. I wasn't writing them back then...sorry. 

 

Anyways, it's Mary Calmes so does my love for this surprise anyone? I think not. This ones another short, sweet, holiday story narrated by Robert Nieman and start to finish I adored it so much so that if I didn't need to move on to other stories I'd probably have listened to this one more time...seriously it's only June...what the hell is wrong with me? Ok, I'm done with Christmas stories...for now and on to other things. Enjoy your summer days and don't forget to hydrate!

Frog by Mary Calmes 4 Star Review!
Frog - Mary Calmes

Weber Yates's dreams of stardom are about to be reduced to a ranch hand’s job in Texas, and his one relationship is with a guy so far out of his league he might as well be on the moon. Or at least in San Francisco, where Weber stops to see him one last time before settling down to the humble, lonely life he figures a frog like him has coming.

 

Cyrus Benning is a successful neurosurgeon, so details are never lost on him. He spotted the prince in a broken-down bull rider's clothing from day one. But watching Weber walk out on him keeps getting harder, and he’s not sure how much more his heart can take. Now Cyrus has one last chance to prove to Weber that it's not Weber's job that makes him Cyrus's perfect man, it's Weber himself. With the help of his sister's newly broken family, he’s ready to show Weber that the home the man’s been searching for has always been right there, with him. Cyrus might have laid down an ultimatum once, but now it's turned into a vow—he's never going to let Weber out of his life again.

 

Review

 

This book made me happy. I loved how the heroes adored each other. Very sexy, hot, and sweet. 

However, Web's stubbornness and not every looking around for how to stay was annoying in places. 

But the strong connection between the heroes and the rest of the cast (I like kids in books) made it a very good read for me.

Change is coming...
Twisted and Tied - Mary Calmes

Without a doubt this is my favorite series by Mary Calmes. I love all of her writings but this one is definitely at the top of my list and with each new story I've come to love all things Miro and Ian.

 

When things ended in 'Tied Up In Knots' Miro and Ian were planing on tying the knot and between then and now it's become a done deal and life for Ian couldn't be better. He's married to the man of his dreams, his friends are doing well, work is going well...until things at work begin to change and change is not Ian's friend...Ian doesn't do well with change.

 

While I'm a little late to the party with this one...real life just refuses to quit kicking my backside these day...so my sincerest apologies to both the publisher and the author  and I promise like other reviews there are no spoilers here because regardless of this there's no way I'd want to spoil the awesomeness that was this book.

 

At the same time as 'Twisted and Tied' brings some things to a close for Ian and Miro, it also opens up a wealth of new possibilities for the author to continue sharing this wonderful world that she has created for us to enjoy, as readers and fans of this series.

 

'Twisted and Tied' while creating new paths to be traveled in the world of the Marshals has also given closure to others and all while answering some questions and creating new ones.  

 

There's so much in this book that I loved from beginning to end with all of the changes and connections that came about this was one hella' fun and awesome adventure and I'm so looking forward to seeing what comes next for this series...in the immortal words of Shrek..."Change is good donkey." and in this case it's much of the change that's going to keep this series fresh, interesting, fun and just generally full of Mary Calmes awesomeness!!!

 

Now without details I just need to say the ending for this story was surprising but not and much of it came to what for me was the natural...even inevitable conclusion. I have to admit the only real issue I have is with the fact that the next installment in this series isn't sitting on my e-reader waiting for me...oh well, good things come to he...mmmmm ....eeerrrr...she who waits, right?

 

P.S. You also might want to keep a pen and paper handy to keep track of who all shows up for this party because it's a fun and interesting list.

This was good...I mean it was totally good...
Together Tied - Mary Calmes

'Together Tied' was an awesome little present from the author. Seriously before you read this one you need to read or refresh yourself on the authors series 'A Matter of Time', the standalone story 'Acrobat' (one of my personal favorites) and truthfully being relevant on 'Mine' and the her latest series 'The Vault' might be helpful as well...all I'm going to say here is 'gun' and what the hell while we're at it let's throw in a refresher on 'Kairos' for good measure.

 

I actually read this one in the middle of the night. My brain was not in sleep mode so I figured what the hell, why waste some good reading time and I dove right into this little gem and emerged just in time to grab a couple of hours of sleep before I had to start my day.

 

'Together Tied' is definitely more than a cute little Valentine's/ 'slice of life' story. As well as giving us a glimpse at what some of my favorite MC characters are up to...this one bridges a events from a whole lot of stories together. Touching either directly or indirectly on how certain events and people connect. 

 

I've decided that when it comes to playing the game 'six degrees of separation' in books Ms. Calmes is the master of the game. I don't think I've ever encountered an author who has so skillfully joined so many books both series and standalones together and not only that but we need to keep in mind that her books have also oveflowed into series by other authors as well...I'mma lookin' at you Ms Rhys Ford. I realize that for some this can become confusing especially if you've missed out on some of those books but I can't help but say that for me it's like catnip...I want more and yes, it does make me so happy that I purr with delight. 

 

While there are a few books by this author that haven't connected to these stories yet...I look forward to seeing how long that will last...will Jory and Stefan Josh ever meet? I hope not because I'm pretty sure the world would implode and what about Sam Kage and Rand? Seriously that's more testosterone than any one room or ranch in Texas could every handle...but, at the same time...think about it? Wouldn't it be fabulous? And then we could add in Ian and Miro, Ceaton & Brin, Darius & Efrem, Trevon & Landry and Lee...please, can we have more about The Vault's Knight, Lee and just all the secondary characters who haven't gotten their stories yet...the connections to be made...seriously...mind blown!!! on how amazing this would be.
