Being grabbed off the street, blind folded, tied up and thrown into a van was not what Izzy expected to happen when she stepped out the door that morning. But when an accidental kidnapping at the hands of the sexy Ethan Chase and his 'Kidnap My Wife' sexual fantasy business leads to just that, Izzy seizes

2.5 disappointing stars.

"Please, let me go. I'm rubbish in bed, your boss or client will be very disappointed."

Waste. Such a bloody waste.

It started our real good. A sexual fantasy business actually got the wrong wife, and Izzy walked off with a job. It was a very interesting business with really cool male colleagues. I mean, what's not to love? I enjoy working with male colleagues cos it's always more fun; sharing ribal

The genius idea behind Tied Up with Love was something that I've never come across before, and that in itself is pretty damn amazing, because I think by now, I must have read hundreds and hundreds of books, and skittered past tons of different plots and ideas.So, for me to find a book, even now, that is entirely different and unique to the others that I've read is just downright incredible, and very, very exciting!

When Izzy is kidnapped in broad daylight, she has no idea that it will end up with her sweet-talking her way into a managerial job with a company that spices up couple’s sex lives with fake, erotic kidnappings. Life is also made easier with the fact that Izzy’s new boss Ethan is smoking hot but totally off limits.

This ended up being a really enjoyable read that I found hard to put down. This has all the elements of a typical chick lit book but also has a bit of sauciness and passionate sex with

This is Amelia’s second book. I loved her first one Beneath the Moon and the Stars and I was really excited for this one and she did not disappoint me, quite the opposite, I FELL IN LOVE with this story on the first page.

The story starts with some action, which is great. I immediately felt part of this world and I wanted more. The accidental kidnapping not only introduces us to Izzy, but also Ethan, the main characters of this book. I

I loved every second of Tied Up With Love from the mistaken identity kidnapping at the start of the book, to Ethan Chase's pure sex appeal. This story talks a lot about the sexual fantasies of rescue and dominance, in a fake set up kidnapping setting, and offered interesting insights into a fantasy that has never crossed my mind. I raced through the pages as I was excited by what I was reading and loving the whole story. Ethan Chase was a fabulous male lead, a sexy bad boy who has hidden depths. ...more

I was given an ecopy of this book as part of a blog tour organised by the author in exchange for an honest review which I'm more than happy to give.

I read the synopsis, was very intrigued and totally hooked by the absolutely gorgeous cover, what I wasn't expecting was the confusion I felt when right at the beginning of the book Izzy the main female character was abducted off the street by masked men - surely with a cover like that it couldn't be a thriller - could it?!

Luckily, it turns out she w

In the opening to Tied Up with Love, I wondered whether Amelia Thorne had turned her hand to crime fiction when our main character, Izzy, is thrown into the back of a van and kidnapped. Even more so when the kidnappers discover she wasn't the intended target and have to decide whether to kill her or let her go. It is all however just a horrible mistake, the kidnappers work for Kidnap My Wife, a service that works pretty much like you are now thinking it does (with the agreement of husband and wi ...more

Tied Up With Love was a truly fun read and starts off with a great opening scene, with Izzy being grabbed by masked men, tied up and blind folded and shoved into the back of a van. She then quickly finds out that she has been accidentally kidnapped by a company called Kidnap My Wife; a sexual fantasy business likened to Fifty Shades of Grey. It is this kidnapping that brings the sexy and moody Ethan Chase into her life and after some

An absolute treat of a book. I read it in one sitting and enjoyed every page. Amelia is quickly becoming one of my favourite authors with her original plots and sexy characters. In Tied Up with Love we meet Izzy, strong but a bit lost right now. I loved how she used all her strengths not only to land a job on Ethan's business but also to make it a real success. She was not afraid to speak up her mind and I instantly felt like she woul

Another fabulously fun novel by Amelia Thorne. A 'Kidnap My Wife' agency? How does she come up with these things! And the amazing thing is: it actually works.
Tied Up With Love had me laughing out loud, squealing with excitement and blushing fiercely. The story was captivating from - literally - the first page and I was oblivious to my surroundings for the entire read. The chemistry - in true Amelia Thorne style -

Tied Up With Love is a compelling, romantic read. Even though you have a good idea of where the story is going, Amelia Thorne surprises you with some unexpected twists along the way and you'll just want to read more.
The title is very well chosen. The story is romantic without being too "cheesy" with some more "hot" scenes and a good dose of humor which makes it a very pleasant and fun, feel-good r

I loved this book from beginning to end!
The constant tension between Izzy and Ethan was hot and palpable even on paper.
Amelia Thorne is a master at switching between sexy and sensual and funny and entertaining.

I was constantly drawn back to this book and my hour long lunch breaks at work all of a sudden seemed to short.

Great. "Tied Up with Love" is this kind of book that you could sum up with "BLOODY BRILLIANT" and "Whatever you do, drop it, go and buy this book and thank me later!". Period. And that was my review, ladies and gentlemen, thank you so much for your attention!
OK, just kidding. Amelia's first book "Beneath the Moon and the Stars" has literally blew my mind away and so I was a little scared if her second book will live up to my expectations. But I needn't have to worry, as "Tied Up with Love" blew

I think I read somewhere that this was Holly Martin writing under a different name, and though I've seen some similarities (with how she writes her male leads), I did find Izzy interesting for the first parts before she completely gave in to the headache that was Ethan Chase.

1st star - after reading 4 books from this author, I've come to appreciate her vivid take on each of the books' setting; though Tied Up With Love didn't require much imagination in the sleepy town of Chessingburyford.

Tied Up With Love is the second novel from Amelia Thorne but the first I have read (shamefully Beneath the Moon and Stars is still waiting to be read on my Kindle) and it certainly lived up to all the wonderful things I have heard about Amelia's writing. Fresh, original, funny and a frightfully good read Tied Up With Love deserves all of your attention as in Izzy and Ethan, Amelia has created two wonderful characters who have you rooting for them from the start right through until the very last ...more

This book was entirely unexpected from Holly Martin, completely different to anything I have read of hers before, and it was absolutely brilliant.

Izzie is minding her own business when she is suddenly grabbed, a bag put over her head and shoved into the back of a van. She has been kidnapped - the next words she hears are "We are from KMW, do as we say and you will not get hurt" - little does Izzie know that this is where the start of the rest of her life begins.

A bit different to the Holly Martin books, this was more focused on sex. It was a fun book to read but I found that it was a bit inconsistent. Izzy was supposed to be this super-bright girl, yet she was very naive at times and would react in ways that didn't seem in line with the way her character had been drawn. I thought the ending felt very rushed and ended suddenly, I would have liked a little more after the final scene. Still, enjoyable and it did hook me in from the very start.

Although I did enjoy some of this book, Ethan was far too volatile and angry, far too much of the time. I also hated the fact that he gagged her so he could apologise. I get that he tied her up (though normally this would be appalling), it’s their “thing”, but to take away her power of speech as well is beyond awful. I also found the sexism (only females were ever kidnapped or tied up) really off putting. I am normally a huge Holly Martin fan, but this one definitely wasn’t for me!

There were were so many twists n turns in this book I couldn’t put it down. I would love to see a follow on book. This story could go for another couple of books. Her’s hoping.

Not much a story to be honest. Far too short for cost. Shame is it had the potential to go a lot further

Ok, so it's been a few days since I finished this book, yet I still cannot find the right words to convey just how much I loved it! Original plot, fun and feisty characters, so much warmth and heart and just ... all the things! And woah, was it HOT!! Such a sexy read and so unlike anything else I've ever read! Straight to the favourites shelf!

P.S. This is not the book cover of the ebook I purchased, but it doesn't appear to be on Goodreads.
