tldr: my literary love affair with Anna Stone continues. I have an ARC copy but I also have the book pre-ordered on Amazon. Gotta support my favourite indie author.
I usually have a rule where I only rate books five stars if I've read them more than once and loved them every time but there's no point here because I know I'll be reading this book again.
Multiple times if the others are anything to go by.
This is Stone's longest work to date but it flows really well with the extra words being

This book captivated me from the first page. My curiosity was piqued with Ruby's ex client and the reason behind Yvonne's icy demeanor. The sex scenes were amazing and well written and the chemistry was off the charts from their very first interaction. Very much looking forward to this new series.
Really good story, I'm loving this series.
For me it was a little hard to believe on Yvonne's love, I guess that more moments between them would make more believable, it was a little short, I think we could have seen more about how their love developed.

The sex parte os amazing, as always, really hot. I love BDSM(everything that doesn't have age play and body fluids)
I love it that Lilith's Den is in here too, I think it would be amazing if we get to see some of the characters of the other book in

I received an ARC in exchange for a truthful review

This is definitely Anna Stone's best work by far. While I've always liked her books, the length left something to be desired. Which meant the romance always seemed too fast and a bit underdeveloped. I'm happy to say that Tangled Vows does not suffer from this problem. The plot uses one of my favorite tropes: marriage of convenience. We have Ruby, an escort, who sees Yvonne at a bar and tries to offer up her services. It does not work. Instead,

You'll devour this in one sitting.

I've read this book three times back to back, I just cannot get enough of Yvonne and Ruby. Yvonne's take no mess attitude and unphased by anyone demeanor are merely defense mechanisms to hide the heart of gold she protects so fiercely. It's not until Yvonne gets involved with Ruby on her mission to provide for her Nanny, that Yvonne's walls start to crumble. Ruby's ability to see past Yvonne's hard exterior, her desire to know more about and care for Yvonne

love, Love, LOVED this book. :3

This is without a doubt my favorite of Anna's books to-date. She is always great with the dom/sub genre but this one this one has my complete reader heart. On top of that it includes one of my favorite tropes with the fake relationship to start. I loved it from the moment they met all through to the end. So many things I want to say but to try and not to give much away, I shall try my best. Some of the parts that stuck out to me, and were favorite points

Awesome. I really enjoyed this story. I liked the characters. I liked their dynamic and struggle to come to terms with their ever-changing and developing feelings for one another. I was kind of disappointed that the asshole that was abusive to Ruby, when she was involved with him, was not Nicholas himself. I thought it was going to be this huge lead up to the end when she realizes and puts two-and-two together and it is revealed that Nicholas knows Ruby from her time as an escort because either: ...more

Fear of rejection can push people away instead of embraceing.

Yvonne has spent her life alone needing no one. Ruby can see through her to a loving but hurt heart. They come together for all the wrong reasons. The more the become vulnerable to each other the lie of a marriage becomes less of a lie. They have a hot, smoldering connection. I love how they explore and care for each other. This was such a fun read. I loved the characters and the beautifully kinky way they loved each other. I look

Anna Stone has created a truly intense, sensual and erotic journey with Tangled Vows. I was already a dedicated fan of her writing and this novel just makes it more true. The adventure that Ruby and Yvonne embark on after their drunken visit with Elvis is nothing short of being on a roller coaster and not knowing whether it is up or down. I read this novel in one day...of course I did little else but....well see for yourself. If power exchange is not your thing then reading this book will ...more

Ah, another great one from wonderful Anna Stone!
This story set as unusual proposal end up a wonderful solution. Since there is not one book I don't like from Anna, this one was expected to be wonderful. I have to admit I was not disappointed. I loved the set up, the characters, who had issues and discovered those together ( or rather admitted to it).
It was hot, complex and exactly what I was looking for.

Definitely worth waiting for!

I have enjoyed all of Anna Stones books and couldnt wait for this new series. I was not disappointed in anyway. The way the story is written keeps you wondering just what is going to happen next. Ruby and Yvonnes relationship unfolds in a very well written way and has you hooked from the first page. Cant wait for the next one.

I received an ARC copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Great start for a series!!! Waiting for book 2!

A no-brainer from the start. Full of strong, passionate women who chase after their dreams. Brave souls who become well-rounded characters. Very steamy scenes with an excellent understanding of the BDSM world. Worth reading slowly and a few time over!

Say yes

Ruby say yes to Yvonne and the Dom and Sub are never the same. Anna starts this already on summer and the fire burns with passion through the whole book. There is a story to follow and "play" to appreciate. Join the on their steamy journey to their "non-standard" love story.

On a road less traveled

A thrilling heart racing got my mind racing story. A true way of how this is life truly is. The heart of the matter and a perfectly great 'fake'marriage story. Can't wait for more.

Merged review:

A honest fake marriage story that moved my heart and life. The true bondage of love and trust. I give and take the pleasure for true love.

This story was definitely a naughty BDSM tale wrapped in a Cinderella story . Yvonne and Ruby were both damaged women . What was fortunate was they had people close to them that would enlighten them when they knew they needed it !
BRAVO ! Anna .

Very Hot

Ms Stone has done it yet again. She has written a romantic story with a huge old splash of the intimacy. The story of Yvonne and Ruby starts out as a marriage of convenience. It progresses into a strong and hot relationship.

Wonderful story

I have enjoyed this book and will look forward to more of this series. The love Ruby and Yvonne devolved into while in that false pretense. Ruby broke down Yvonne walls and show her true kind heart.

Tangled Vows by Anna Stone

Anna Stone has the ability to engage the reader in Yvonnes struggle to open her heart to love and Rubys desire to be a submissive.
Ruby, a Vegas escort, returning to the business after a relationship gone wrong, is rebuilding her identity and life purpose. She meets Yvonne, the COO of Mistress Media, who hides behind her Dom role to pretend she doesnt have a heart.
They wind up married by an Elvis impersonator in a Vegas chapel after a night of drunkenness.

This was another hit for Ms.Stone. I have no problem recommending this book to my peers. Can't wait to read more.
I enjoyed this one quite a bit and found it hard to put down. I wish there weren't so many references to their bdsm preferences being "twisted". Overall I had fun with it.

Im a sucker for all Anna Stones books. Theyre cliche and sweet and I cant get enough of it! Very glad she kept the same themes *wink wink* for this new series as well

So good.

Just like all of her other books, this one is fantastic and if you have t read her other books, then you should. The BDSM and a HEA is a perfect mix.
