Entrepreneur Skylar is so in control of her life, it comes as a bit of a shock that her one time of wild abandon has resulted in her being pregnant.  When she tried to contact the dad, it appears he is incommunicado for a year.  So she does what any self-respecting, strong woman does and charges on.  The result is one amazing little baby girl.

When Kade comes back into town after his year of self exile on a ranching project, he is stunned when his mother accosts him with the fact that he is a father.  He sets out to see Skylar and take care of things he left undone for too long.  First off he is going to be a father to Eliza no matter what Skylar wants and he is also going to try and make his relationship with Skylar work.  He is convinced she loves him as much as he loves her.

Once Kade convinces Skylar that a little bit of “friends with benefits” isn’t a bad thing, can he also convince her that just maybe they could be a real family?

Tied Up, Tied Down is a fantastic addition to the Rough Riders series.  I was thoroughly entertained by this story and how things with this group of characters has progressed and grown since the third book.  I loved how Ms. James made a super control “freak” woman who is also a successful business woman, but allowed this character to have a weak spot for the one man who just might be the right one for her.  Additionally, it was nice to see that there can be consequences from actions that all don’t plan on.  I continue to enjoy this series and I think Tied Up, Tied Down is a wonderful addition.
