I have been looking forward to reading this book, the third volume in the Manhattan Bound series and I was not disappointed. Each book has been delightful but in Knotted the author has delivered her best yet.
This series provides one of the best depictions of a healthy BDSM relationship in romantic fiction. Loving, affectionate and deeply kinky. When we first met Maxine in Weakened she was inexperienced and naive but very open minded. Under Drew's loving guidance, Maxine has eagerly embraced her submissive side and Drew has to be very inventive in order to keep up with her appetite for new sensation.
As Maxine and Drew ready themselves for the next stage in their relationship, they are supported by a beautifully developed cast of family, friends and kittens. Fans of Uncle Benjy won't be disappointed.
As with Weakened and Wrapped there is a rich seam of humour running through the book and there are many laugh out loud moments. The heat factor is also very high and the author has a real gift for injecting humour into the sexiest of kink scenes. We join our happy couple on an enchanting journey through France and just as the author made New York come alive, she does the same with Paris. Both the city and the French countryside are beautifully evoked and I have difficulty picking out a favourite scene, is it the alley or the sexy, hilarious road trip?
For me, Knotted is the perfect blend of romance, humour and erotica which culminates in a thrilling climax, which finally allows Drew to lay the last of his Demons to rest. An immersive read, which I'm sure I'll reread many times.

JULIET thank you again for another great read!!! Looking forward to the next book in the series!!!!
This review has been a long time coming. I have read this particular installment of the series 3 times, now I'm finally getting around to reviewing it. This book will have you laughing and crying.
Even though the stories are definitely kinky there's a definite relationship theme throughout. Parents & children, siblings, friendships and of course the romantic!
I cannot get enough of Max & Drew. They are kinky, funny and completely adorable. The main characters are wonderfully written but so is the supporting motley crew :) Drew's brother Adam is definitely the comic relief - very often. The wedding portion alone had me laughing out loud! The reception definitely left me in stitches and tears. From Ben's dad romp in the bushes to Jillian's pregnancy announcement. There was never a dull moment.
The honeymoon or as I called it the "horny-moon" was out of this world. It was so well written you felt like you were transported to France. At times, so intimate you felt like you were intruding on a couple's private moment. The honeymoon was as romantic as it was raunchy.
Of course this story couldn't be all dandelions and domination. There was definitely a dose of angst and drama brought to us by the unfriendly neighborhood psycho -Randall - who was a pitiful as he was evil.
The end of the book nearly had me in tears. Maxine's assault, Trevor protecting Drew, the scenes at the hospital. It was almost too much to handle. TJ reuniting with Drew and Drew telling Max he loved her even more after everything that happened. I love, love, love them!
I'm looking forward to the next book which I hope will bring a baby for our favorite couple, a baby that's not furry.
Wow! What an amazing book! Just when I thought I couldn't love these two anymore... (Thank you, Juliet Braddock!).
"Maxine Kirk had traveled to New York City alone, but Drew McKenzie brought her home."
Here we have the next chapter in Drew&Maxine love story. We get to see the much anticipated wedding and their lovely honeymoon... But of course, our heroes will have to go through a few unexpected surprises along the way. (And let's not forget the rest of the characters! they all play a big role).
"One rainy September evening changed their lives forever. Under his spell and unto his heart, she’d fallen hard. Everything about Drew captivated her, from his gentle and protective nature to the slap of his palm on her bare ass. What she adored most, though, is that she could always just be herself with him. He made the time to explore her world beneath the surface, and in that, he also found his own greatest love in Maxine."
As i always say, one of the things that make this story so special is the mix of feelings and emotions you get while reading it. And Knotted is not the exception. Happiness, love, romance, passion, tenderness, tears (yes, sad tears AND happy tears), fear, shock, surprise, laughter... This book has it all. I don't want to give any spoilers about the plot because it deserves to be enjoyed page by page. I'll just say... What are you waiting for? Go get your copy!!! Seriously, you won't regret it.
I truly loved this story! Juliet's first book, "Weakened" , introduced us to a sweet, insecure young lady from Pittsburgh PA and a handsome confident NY actor. Both, however, battle to overcome adversities they endured early on. Their journey toward love and passion continues into book two, "Wrapped". Maxine and Drew's relationship simply flourishes into a special bond of romance, kink, mutual respect and so, so much fun. " Knotted" brings all three books full circle. A must read for all of those hopeless romantics like me who enjoy reading about a couple who adore and support each other. Juliet's incredible story telling with have you captivated through every page turn. I could never predict what would happen next! Steamy love scenes and sexy erotic play enhance this wonderful love story and they are described in such delicious detail. You'll be begging for more and the author surely delivers. The other characters in the book that support Drew and Maxine add to the book's attraction. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll fist pump but most of all you will be grateful for this book series.
I have enjoyed the whole series by Juliet. I have been waiting on the edge of my seat for Knotted to be released and I was not disappointed in the least. It is the hottest of the series, but she has done a great job keeping the story line of their lives going also. My favorite part of the series has been the emotional back stories of the characters. There were a few surprises in this book and it kept you guessing until the end. I loved it and cannot wait for book four to come out.
Truly enjoyed Knotted. The story keeps moving and doesn't leave you hanging. Even though the story mainly follows Drew and Maxine, there are so many different characters to fall in love with. Cant wait to read the next book to see where there lives have taken them and follow their wonderful journeys!
Really good continuation to Max and Dew story. Passion,love,angst,drama,humor and of course love. Love Max and Dew and Uncle Benjy and the rest of the characters who makes the whole story fit together. Cant wait to see what next for them all. Enjoyed reading.
