Deputy US Marshals Miro Jones and Ian Doyle are now partners on and off the job: Miro’s calm professionalism provides an ideal balance to Ian’s passion and quick temper. In a job where one misstep can be the difference between life and death, trust means everything. But every relationship has growing pains, and sometimes Miro stews about where he stands with his fiery lover. Could the heartstrings that so recently tied them together be in danger of unraveling?

Those new bonds are constantly challenged by family intrusions, well-intentioned friends, their personal insecurities, and their dangerous careers—including a trial by fire when an old case of Miro’s comes back to haunt them. It might just be enough to make Ian rethink his decision to let himself be tied down, and Miro can only hope the links they've forged will be strong enough to hold.

Non stop action and a sizzling love story.
Fit to Be Tied is the second book in the Marshals series by Mary Calmes. The books in this series must be listened to in order and, as good as they are, this is no hardship. The combination of this author and narrator Tristan James makes for a superb listening experience, with an edge of your seat storyline perfectly told. 

In Fit to Be Tied we revisit Deputy US Marshal’s Miro Jones and Ian Doyle, with Ian now living openly with Miro and both men adjusting to their knew dynamic. As young hotshot Marshals these men are known for their ability to work brilliantly together to take down the worst kind of fugitives, but with Ian still being deployed to his special forces team, and Miro left behind to continue on with a different partner, all is not perfect between them. Fear and jealousy can make for powerful feelings and they’ll need to remember who they’re fighting for if this relationship is to work. Trusting each other will be paramount, both on and off the job. 

When a psychopath from Miro’s past returns both men are sent to Arizona to keep them out of harms way. This results in some very funny scenes with their new temporary boss. These guys are like superheroes to me and I loved that they refused to change their MO regardless of the consequences! I love all the kickass save the day moments, and I really love how their real boss, the delectable Sam Kage, is always there to back them up, no matter what. When the psychopath finds them, and uses an insider against Miro, it will take all his strength and skill to survive. Having the love of his life to fight for might just give Miro the strength he needs. 

There is so much depth to a Mary Calmes novel. All the background characters add layers to Miro and Ian’s story. From their adorable dog to Miro’s college girlfriends, Cabot and Drake, the other Marshals and did I mention Sam Kage. I’ve said it before, but I’ll  say it again, if you haven’t read or listened to the Matter of Time series you are seriously missing out. These other characters in the story add humour, back stories and more to the MC’s narrative making for an even more compelling listen. 

Mary Calmes never disappoints and I found listening to book two in the series even better than the first, which is saying something because I loved All Kinds of Tied Down. Tristan James does a superb job of bringing all of the characters to life, completely drawing the listener into the story. His voice acting is flawless and you are never taken out of the scene by missteps or inappropriate voices, male or female. The combination of this author and her narrator is perfect to my ear. 
I hated being forced (sleep and food are overrated) to take a break from listening to Fit to Be Tied until it’s highly satisfying (in more ways than one) conclusion. 
Highly recommended.
