4.5 stars . Warning: *May contain spoilers!*

After Charlotte Brook's divorce from a cheating jerk husband, she gets a new job in a new town and starts over in more ways than one. She meets her client Ian Galloway who expresses an interest in her. Though she's not entirely sure it's her talent that landed her company the account, her demeanor changes when she meets a strong, sexually confident woman on a business trip. Charlotte (Charlie) is determined to become the one IN charge, not on the recei

Honestly speaking, I like the men dominating. Or even when they weren't in power they still give off that in control kind of feeling. *_*

But in this book, roles were switched and even though I struggled with it, I still enjoyed it. I couldn't get the thought of someone as rich, sexy and powerful like Ian being submissive. It's fucking hot and I rather enjoyed that bit. ;)

On a side note, at the start I seriously struggled with connecting to the characters, especially Charlie which

This book was crazy good!! I was sucked in and couldn't put it down! I loved Charlie, she was starting over, take no crap kind of girl. When she runs into Ian Galloway, literally, all her thoughts of she doesn't need a man in her life go right out the window. Ian Galloway is an absolutely hot as hell man and as soon as Charlie runs into him he's a goner. I loved how Elle has such a strong woman, l love reading about headstrong ladies! Ian isn't what I thought he'd be at all, he's such a real per ...more

Elle Vaughn is new to my list of must-read authors. Her writing style is cool and takes me to another place. That's what I look for in a good book. I want to live in their world and be a part of their lives as much as it's possible reading a book. Her characters are thought-out, and I found myself empathizing with them, drawing me into their story, even though I wanted to yank Charlie's hair out at times! But that's what I love! Feeling those emotions is the best thing when lost in a great book. ...more

Woman in charge!!!

If you want s sex filled read where the woman takes charge then this is the book for you.
I enjoyed it however I got a little lost with Ian becoming weak. I guess it's just not my thing.
However I liked the story and where it went.
I liked how strong Charlie became, even though at times I hated her, that's what made me like her, how she took charge of who she was becoming. Ian is Hot and the sex was Hot Hot.

Love Ian not so hot on Charlie. Why? I don’t like the attitude. Understand some of it but seriously you don’t need to treat Ian that way. He is a great great guy! Ian who has a secret but one paved in good intentions and who falls in love with Charlie and actually agrees to be her plaything in hopes that she will fall in love with him. Ian who tries so hard to be what Charlie wants. That is who really made this story pop and sizzle. My issue with Charlie is that she acts like all men will be lik ...more

I absolutely loved this book, it was extremely hot with strong characters and an intriguing storyline. The story flowed really well, it was fast moving and had me gripped from the first page. This is the first book in the Galloway Brothers series, and I would definitely read the other books in the series as I loved this one. From the glimpses we got of Ian's brothers in this book I can say that they are hot, hot, hot and are interesting characters, so I will be looking out for their books.

Tied Up is the first book I have read by Elle Vaughn, and may I add, it won't be the last. I LOVED this book.

Charlie has gotten a new job, in a new city, after a very painful divorce. Her cheating husband has left her with nothing so she starts over again. Ian Galloway, one of the rich and powerful men who runs Galloway Tech, is her new client. A chance running into each other, literally, has set the sparks flying off the pages. Charlie knows getting involved with Ian, could jeopardize her job,

*I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review*

This was a great read! Ian was a sexy alpha male, but also charming, gentle and caring. Charlotte (Charlie) is a sweet, vulnerable-turned-strong-and-indipendent woman. They had chemistry right from the start and their sex was great. One problem I had is that we never learn much about them. All we get is a little story about Ian's brother Graham and Elizabeth and Ian's involvement. I would have liked if we could see them bond a bit more, i

Elle Vaughn is an awesome author and definitely doesn't disappoint with this one!!!

Charlie, the main female lead, is fresh from a nasty divorce and feels that a new city is the perfect place to start over. She lands a new job and then lands a huge new client in the form of Galloway also doesn't hurt that the owner, Ian, is super hot and totally into her!

Ian, one of the owners of Galloway Tech, is a very wealthy man and usually gets what he wants...well he wants Charlie and she wants to
