What made the experience of listening to Tied up in Knots the most enjoyable?
Every damn thing! Seriously. Mary Calmes is an amazing author with the ability to literally bring emotions to life with words. Tristan James is a fantastic narrator with the ability to breath life into those words and emotions.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Miro, always Miro. I do love Ian, but there is this little quirk with Miro's personality that makes him so endearing and almost... naive in a way, when it comes to Ian, only with Ian. It's hard to explain, you'll just have to listen.
What does Tristan James bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
He adds dimension to the story. I read this book and loved it, couldn't put it down. Same thing with the audio book, I didn't want to stop listening the story, plot and characters are just so engrossing. James really brings out the emotions of the characters with subtle nuances and tone inflections.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
It was and I tried, but I had to sleep at some point.
Any additional comments?
Love this Author and this narrator, perfect marriage of words and sound. If you are a fan of the Author, Narrator or series, it's a no brainer. Lot's of action, suspense, comedy, tragedy and Ian and Miro tug of war in the bedroom.
My e-book review....
Miro Jones wants his happy ever after with his partner both at work and at home, Ian Doyle. Problem is, Ian is a soldier through and through, and Miro is starting to wonder when just loving him will be enough for Ian. Left alone more than he cares to be, Miro is adrift without Ian there to ground him. Ian doesn't hide Miro, their relationship or the way he feels about his partner. So why isn't it enough for Ian to stay put and be the constant Miro needs him to be?
I think this series gets better with each new book. I really enjoy the way Ian and Miro are written as these alpha male personas, and yet, when they are together and alone it is always about them and only them. Miro is forever getting his ass handed to him by criminals, suspects and a certain psychotic serial killer that is convinced Miro is his soul mate. Ian is forever loosing his shit because the love of his life is battered and bruised... again. But lord, when they come together it is this raw, animalistic, electric connection that radiates off the pages like lightening.
The secondary characters in this series are just as vital and elaborately written as Ian and Miro. From Miro's gaggle of gal pals that think he hung the moon, much to their husbands and boyfriends dismay, to Chickie, Ian's beloved dog that is one third dog, one third wolf and one third horse! I didn't think Calmes could ever bring another fictional couple to life and make me love them as much as Sam and Jory (Matter of Time series) but she's done just that with Ian and Miro.
I seriously hope this isn't the last we see of Ian, Miro, Chickie and the wide variety of other characters that make this series so amazing.

This series is one of my favorites! I liked how she included characters from Rhys Ford's 'Sinners' series.

3.5 stars. This is definitely one of my favourite series, and I have read/listened to all the other Miro/Ian stories, but this one suffered from a problem I've encountered on quite a few of Tristan James latest narrations....pronunciation niggles, and I don't know if it's the script he's given to work with by authors/publishers [his narration of Jordan L Hawk's Hexbreaker also had several very noticeable mistakes, hence no more audio for me for that series], but this one had an absolutely unforgiveable error in it as far as I'm concerned....the province in Afghanistan where Ian was left stranded by the army colleagues who didn't have his back is called Helmand, NOT Helmet!! I couldn't believe my ears and listened to that particular section three times, but I got the same answer each time and it's just not good enough!! Lots of men and women have died serving their country in that province in Afghanistan...couldn't Dreamspinner Press/the production team/Audible have checked before releasing the audio?? So, so disrespectful and disappointing......
