Untying the Knot by Meghan Quinn

Untying the Knot by Meghan Quinn

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Trope: Sports (baseball), marriage in trouble, second chance, forced proximity
“Now give me that pu$$y, make me f*cking lose control.”

This book caused something that I’ve never experienced before: a book hangover. Untying the Knot is not your usual run-of-the-mill romance. For starters, it’s a second chance romance about an already married couple. Secondly, there was more ‘baggage’ in it than I was used to. In fact, all that character baggage was necessary to the overarching plot of the story.

Ryot Bisley has been married to his wife Myla for the last seven years, but the last six months have been a strain on the marriage. Feelings of resentment. Feelings of fear. Feelings of not being enough are all Myla can think about, causing her to fall back into her old habits of pushing away the people who hurt her. Ryot was so absorbed in his new business venture after pro baseball that he doesn’t see the signs that Myla is hurting, until she drops the D word: Divorce.

Okay, so I was totally invested in this book even when I didn’t want to be. Let me explain. I don’t usually read books that are heavy on emotional themes, but with Untying the Knot, I could not put it down. Myla is such a damaged character, and after seeing what her childhood was like through the flashback sections of this book, I totally get why she acts the way she does. She’s simply trying to survive and protect her heart.

Even though they’re going through the steps of divorce, there’s still a lot of spicy scenes to keep the heat simmering. There’s absolutely no doubt that their chemistry is off the charts. Their banter is top notch, as are Myla’s attempts to drive Ryot crazy.

If you’ve been sitting on the fence on this one, I’d say give it a go. You might find yourself surprised.
