"SEXY, FAST-PACED, and ADDICTING!" A.L. Jackson, NYT & USA Today bestselling author

Cara Carelli is a silver-tongued mafia princess, master manipulator, and the only woman I’ve ever loved. But she’s also smokin’ hot, sinfully sexy, and my ex-wife.

When Cara led me straight into a trap and pleaded for my help, I couldn’t say no. She thought she had the upper hand, but this t

Favorite Quotes:

Cara was the best actress I knew. She lied like a gambler with nothing in his hand and a million-dollar pot in front of him.

He took a step, and the woman walked backward, looking at Dale on the bed, then around to the rest of us as though we might help. “It’s time for you to find some other dick to jump on. Your gravy train ended a long time ago.”

As women, it’s a struggle, most times, to find the perfect man. Let’s be honest, they don’t exist. And so, we’re left with

Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

Tied Down is the second book in The Nailed Down series. The premise of the book is simple but the authors gave us the unexpected on this suspense filled romance. I loved how different it was from the first book in the series. You can definitely read and enjoy as a standalone.

Kiel Kaino is a journalist with a big heart. He's been burned by his wife , left NYC and restarted a new life on the other side of the county. He's finally back on track with his career only to be sucked in again with his wi

I loved Kiel and Cara! This sexy guy with his mafia princess girl made for a very entertaining book. After getting married in secret, and then going their separate ways, Cara comes back into Kiel’s life and turns it upside down. This book bad the sweet and sexy moments but also action and some suspense as you tried to figure out what was going to happen next.

Hot & Exciting!

Tied Down had me on the edge of my seat right from the beginning.  So Good So Suspenseful and So Sexy!  Kiel is a Journalist but don't assume he's a softie,  Oh No this man is domineering, protective and captivating.  Cara is Kiel's estranged wife. She's a city girl with mafia ties and very strong minded.  I love the "hate and angry" relationship that Kiel and Cara have towards one another when they are first reunited. It's cold and cruel and it caused me to cringe at some of the

Kiel is learning his woman doesn't follow directions well, “I told you to stay in that room.” I could only shrug, having no excuses that would keep him from complaining. “You’re the most stubborn woman I’ve ever known.” Kiel is really devoted to his woman, "...have spent hundreds of hours listening to your father talk about the shady **** he’s done in his life.” I pulled her close, draping one of her muscular legs over my thigh. “Monumental things, remember? Every one is for you.” I liked this b ...more

5 star Review Tied Down (Nailed Down #2) by Chelle Bliss & Eden Butler

Wow, what a great book. Tied Down is a smoking hot, suspenseful read which had me gripped from the first to the last chapter.

Kiel is a journalist and when his ex-wife
Cara Carelli asks for my help I have no choice but to agree. However, since she has ties to the mafia, he knows it will not be simple and more than likely dangerous.

I fell for Kiel right from the start, he was everything that I could imagine wanting and needing

Oh, holy hotness. I really thought I wasn't going to love Kiel's story more than Kane's--but how I was wrong. So, SO wrong! The set-up on this one is so heartbreaking, from both Kiel and Cara's viewpoints, which stunned the heck out of me. I expected to truly hate the crap out of Cara. But dang it if these incredible women didn't give me a heroine who moved me and made me root like hell for her--especially when the poor thing was forced by circumstances to hike through the forest, in the snow, t ...more

Chelle Bliss and Eden Butler have done it again!!! This one started out a little slower for me, and I wasn't totally crazy for Cara to begin with, but that definitely changed before it was over.

Kiel Kaino arrives in New York thinking he's there for a job interview. But he has this gut feeling that something is off. And boy, is it ever! When he follows what he thinks is going to be his next quickie into a room at the airport he's in for a rude awakening.

I am totally digging this writing duo of Chelle Bliss & Eden Butler. This story is chock full of good stuff!! It is sexy, steamy, intense, dangerous and so many other things, I couldn't put it down. I loved Kane from Book 1 but his brother Kiel has overtaken the top spot between these two very sexy men in my eyes.
5 years ago Kiel married Cara thinking she was the love of his life and then she did the unthinkable and positively crushed him. Kiel learned a lot from that experience and is a differ

Kiel and Cara have such strong chemistry between the two them, that it leads to some hot sex scenes. They have a complicated relationship and have a past which requires some work to get their happy ending finally. Kiel was a hot alpha, but there were a few times where I wanted to throw my kindle at him. Cara had a strong personality, so there were times I wanted to throw my kindle at her as well. I felt like these two people were the only ones who could handle the other. They were a perfect matc ...more

Kiel and Cara....finally! I fell in love with Kiel in Nailed Down and was blown away to find out he was married to the Mob, well Mob Princess!

Chelle brings us an entertaining, action-filled tale of romance and rediscovery. From the East Coast to the West, Kiel and Cara are in for the ride of a lifetime, that ultimately brings us Forever. Through their story, we get more of Dale and Gin (from Nailed Down) and introduced to Johnny.....delizioso!

While this is a HAE, I want MORE!!!

Kiel is just as hot as his brother but not as moody. He certainly has more anger and resentment but when he finds his wife honestly needs him he can't help but move past all that and see the woman he fell in love with. ...more

This is Kiel and Cara's story

5 years ago they were married but only to have Cara lie to her family and have Kiel badly beaten.

Jumping ahead Cara needs Kiel back in her life and will take matters into her own hands to make this happen.
Will Kiel go back to Cara?
Will they get their HEA?

You need to read this book to find out.

When I read about Kiel in Kane and Kit's story, I thought he was an arrogant man-whore and really didn't care who he hurt as long as he got what he wanted. But after reading his story I now know why he has the attitude that he has. This story gives the background needed to understand him better an know why he does the things he does.
Kiel is headed to New York for what he thinks is a job interview but he has this feeling that something isn't right. And he knows he should trust his gut feelings. B

I have to say, I agree with AL Jackson...this book was totally "SEXY, FAST-PACED AND VERY ADDICTING"!!! I read Tied Down this afternoon, could not put it down! Eepp I just love the rush I got while reading this book!!!

Totally not what I was expecting but I got so much more. Kiel and Cara have history. She tricks him into coming across the country to protect her. Her father is strongly encouraging her to marry someone else but she can't. She belongs to Kiel. But the last time they saw each other was five years ago when she accused him of being a stalker and had her brother take care of it. Kiel flew home bloodied and heart broken. Their reunion is not the happy one Cara is expecting.

Kiel Kaino and Cara Carelli
Kiel, a journalist, and Cara, his estranged wife of 5 years, are reunited when he returns to New York, under the pretense of a position for the job of his dreams.
When, Kiel arrives at the airport, he thinks he's hooking up with a hot piece of a$*. Turns out, it's Cara who orchestrated the whole thing. Oh the job was real, but, Cara was so desperate for Kiel's help, she was willing to go to drastic lengths.

I’m really loving this series. As much as I loved Kane’s story, Kiel’s was that much better. In this book you get yummy hotness, suspense, sweet love, and even relationship drama involving friends. This book has a little bit of everything and I loved every single moment.

Kiel and Cara were married 5 years ago. But with Cara coming from a mafia type family, Kiel wasn’t really who her father would want for her husband. So Cara lied to her father and brother about who Kiel was and what their relati

Married to the Mob

Kiel and Cara were married 5 years ago, but the two parted ways when Cara betrayed Kiel. Cara is a tough cookie with street smarts. She is ravishing from the top of her head down to her 3 inch stilettos. I disliked her at the start but she grew on me as the story progressed. She holds her cards very close to her chest, but you find out that she is not so hard as nails as she appears.

Kiel was hurt and busted up by Cara's dishonesty and he held her betrayal close to his heart, bu

Kiel and Cara's story had the perfect blend of sexiness suspense and angst. It kept me hooked from the first page. I loved how even though Cara had somewhat betrayed Kiel he couldn't stop loving her no matter how much he tried to tell himself he hated her. I'm not going to go into anymore detail about what happened between them you need to read this book to find that out for yourselves and trust me it's worth finding out.

Cara & Kiel will definitely give you all the feels. Cara & Kiel and their past & their future will definitely tug on your heartstrings. You can feel what Cara & Kiel are going through as you read their story and it’s heartbreaking and beautiful at the same time. This is a story about second chance and finding your forever.

When a job offer for the journalist in NY can’t be overlooked he heads there, what he doesn’t expect is to be confronted by his ex Cara, the mafia Princess needing his help and protection.

Chelle and Eden have once again hit it out of the park. Cara and Keil have a past and now fate has once again thrown them together. Cara is a strong independent woman and Keil is your typical alpha male but personified !!!!These characters each want to be in charge they are strong stubborn, arrogant and always get what they want. This is a thrill ride, so hop on , sit down and strap yourself in!! You are in for a crazy, wild, sexy off the charts ride!!!

OMG....It's SOOOOO good, and hot, and the story line...and Cara is such a great character! First you really hate her, but she is so complex that there is more that meets the eye, and her chemistry with Kiel...shut the front door!! I thought Kane would be hard to top as an alpha male, but Kiel definitely shows his alpha side when the woman he has hated for the lat 5 years is now in real danger. Kiel has never really gotten over Cara, and when she lures him back to NY he is less than thrilled. He ...more

This is Kiel and Cara's story. Kiel fell in love hard with his wife only to have her lie to her family and say he was stalking her. Fast forward five years and Cara needs Kiel back in her life. It won't be easy to win him over. He is bitter and rightly so. They are brought back together in a fast paced, action packed journey. Will they get their HEA?

I have been eagerly anticipating Kiel’s story. I wanted to hate Cara for what she did in the past but I ended up liking and respecting her. What they lived through was intense, but it helped them put things in perspective and find their way back to each other. Kiel is hot and the chemistry he has with Cara is powerful. I can’t wait to see if Johnny gets a story, would love to see him gets his HEA with Sammy.
