Owen’s heard all about the cocky Adonis, and he has every intention of steering clear of the man—until Chad's sexy taunts push him too far.

Between love and hate, there's a whole lot of trouble...

A sexy new M/M romance from Entangled’s Brazen imprint...

Chad Lake only showed up at his sister's party for the free food, but when he spots an uptight nerd at the edge of the crowd, he can't resist trying to ruffle the guy's perfect bow tie and impeccable hair.

The hottie’s ready for him, though, and in the end, it's Chad who's left wide-eyed, his ears still ringing with the filthy things Bow Tie whispered in his ear. No one gets the upper hand on Chad. Ever.

Owen Hawkins has heard all about the cocky Adonis from Chad’s sister—the same sister who holds Owen’s career advancement in her hands. He has every intention of steering clear of the other man...until Chad's sexy taunts push him too far. There’s something intriguing about Chad, and even though Owen knows that getting tangled up with the infuriating man is trouble, he can’t seem to stay away...

Owen leaned close, so his breath mingled with Chad’s soft exhales. So the tips of his bow tie touched the edges of Chad’s leather jacket.

When Chad’s breath sped up, when his pupils dilated, Owen knew he had him. “Do you want to know how I’d fuck you?” he asked.

Chad didn’t answer. Finally, he lic

Rounding up for dirty talking, bow tie wearing Owen! He stole the show.

I honestly never cared for Chad. He was a bit douchey and woe-is-me and I just never warmed up to him.

I didn't read the other books in the series, this one can easily be read as a standalone. It was a very easy read.... ...more

***4 Stars***

This was one hell of an addicting, quick and steamy read with some seriously....SERIOUSLY....quality dirty talk!

Owen and Chad had chemistry in spades! They were opposites in personalities, but their attraction was evident right from the beginning. Chad was an easy going, free spirited ...more

There's just something about Megan Erickson’s nerds that really get to me. Just like there's something about her M/M books that leave me a little weak in the knees. Add the two together, and you’ve a recipe for a truly amazing, sexy hot book.

I loved this so much. Dapper Dick FTW yo! Haha. Srsly tho. Chad was fun and cocky. But, as with some of my favorite free-spirited "bad boys", he's actually got this vulnerable insecure side that at some points makes you wanna hug him, and at others... Throttle him. Haha. But Owen and him were such g ...more

Between love and hate, there’s a whole lot of trouble…

I LOVED this book!! This is exactly why I adore reading M/M books!

Love/hate romances are one of my favorite tropes, and I just loved the sparks between Chad and Owen.

He was the kind of guy Owen shouldn’t like, but yet just the thought

Aww, soooo cute!!!

Seeing this is a Brazen read, it's a quick one, for sure. Quick, hot, cheeky, funny, adorable, and hot (yes, I said hot twice *wink*)!

I haven't read the first 2 books in the series. I signed up for this because, well, it’s Brazen, it ...more

Totally worth the wait! This book made me happy. The first book was ok, the second book I could have totally done without, but this one, this one I thoroughly enjoyed.

The boys were cute. The sex was hot. The dirty talk was well, dirty and man oh man, the locations made me need a cold shower.

Wow, this was really good. I loved Chad and Owen together. Sure Chad was an ass at some point, but I've read way worse and I kinda got were he was coming from. They both made some mistakes..Owen was being a bit of a daddy.

Still..these boys were hot :)) I seriously enjoyed the " very hung, dirty tal ...more

First of all, congratulations to Megan Erickson for the first male/male romance in the Brazen line!

"But he’s a gentleman monster, thanks to you.”

That boys and girls is one of the best lines I've ever read in a book. And the reason he's saying it? Classic. I'll be an old lady sitting on my porch and I'll still say it's one of my favourite lines in a book.

This is the story of Chad and Owen. When I ...more

*more incoherent fangirling*

Because Chad and Owen, you guys.

^That's what first came to mind upon finishing this book. And while it may seem silly, it's 100% true. Tied to Trouble was everything I had hoped Chad's story would be and then some. I have zero complaints about it. What I do have ...more

4 stars!

The short of it: I will never look at bow ties the same way, ever again. I always thought they were cute and adorable, but - thanks to Megan - a whole new world has opened up. Apparently they've got several uses...

Slick's review posted at Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

I have loved Megan Erickson's Gamers series from the start, mainly because I like geeky/nerdy characters and this series has been full of them. In my review of the first book of this series, Changing His Game, I said, "And please don’t tell me I’ ...more

Ever since we met Chad in the first book of the Gamers series, I've been excited about the possibility of a book for him. I couldn't be happier that Megan Erickson and Entangled decided to publish Chad's story as Brazen's first M/M novel - it lived up to every expectation I had. Tied to Trouble and ...more

I've been hoping we'd get to read Chad's story since we met him in Changing His Game so I was really excited when I found out about Tied to Trouble. The previous two books in the series were M/F romance but I'm really pleased that more and more authors are mixing their series up a bit and i ...more

Tied to Trouble is book three in the Gamers series and I have to admit I have not read the first two books, however that did not take anything away from this story. I plan to go back and read the first two, though, because I loved it so much. Chad and Owen were fun, had great banter and this love st ...more

While this is the third book in a series, it's easily enjoyed on its own.

Chad is the bad boy younger brother of Marley (MC from a previous book) and shows up at her house on the promise of 1. free food 2. free drink. That's where he "meets" "Bow Tie," a svelte geeky member of Marley's staff at GAMER ...more

My Thoughts:

The Gamers Series has been a whole lot of fun, laughs, and sexy times! I love these characters, and have learned more about gaming and cosplay through them. The strong themes of friendship and family in this series really warm my heart. If you're looking for light-hearted, fun, comedic, ...more

I absolutely loved Chad in the first book, so I was beyond thrilled to see that we were getting his story.

Chad and Owen couldn't be more different and that's why they're so adorable. They have a serious love/hate relationship and it was so much fun seeing it evolve into something more. Not to menti ...more

About the author

USA Today Best Selling Author

Megan Erickson

My first stories written in crayon-scrawl on loose-leaf notebook paper were about my childhood pet - a deaf cat with dandruff. And after covering real-life dramas as a journalist, I decided I liked writing my own endings better and switched to fiction. My romance novels full of humor and heart are a far cry from those early scribblings about my hygiene-deficient pet. I live in southern Pennsylvania, with my husband, two kids and two cats. I like a good pint of beer, a greasy bacon cheeseburger, homemade mac and cheese, and a great book with a happily ever after. When I'm not tapping away on my laptop, I'm probably listening to the characters in my head who just. Won't. Shut. Up.
