Holly Woods is going to hell in a handbasket—but this time, Satanists aren’t to blame. Halloween is.
Nonna doesn’t understand why there are skeletons and demons everywhere. Mom is threatening to stitch a devil into Nonna’s pillowcase if she doesn’t shut up. Bek is bumbling over a date with Jason, the handsome FBI agent who conveniently got himself relocated to Austin, and I… Well. I’m considering running away to a town without the crazies.
Nothing new here.
Everything is going smoothly—too smoothly—and I can’t shake the feeling that something is about to happen. Drake insists I’m being paranoid… But when a body turns up at the Holly Woods Halloween party, we have a whole lot more than a murderer to worry about.
Because the prime suspect is his mom.
And it’s my job to prove she’s innocent.
(Tied Bond is the fourth full-length book in the Holly Woods Files series and does not stand alone.)

Tied Bond is another fantastic book in an already wonderful series. This book was the perfect mix of Suspense and Romance, with a little crazy from the Bond family to add the comic relief to this story. The books in this series just continue to get better and better as they are released!! Tied Bond kept me guessing all the way through. Just when I thought I knew who it was, another twist was thrown in there and I was back at the beginning…lol 🙂
I truly believe Emma out did herself with this book. I really loved the storyline of this one. She sucked me right from the start. I have found that I have really enjoyed the books in this series that the focus is primarily on the suspense side of the story and not so focused on Drake and Noelle. Although I really do love Drake and Noelle as a couple the mysteries built into this series are what keep me coming back.
As with all my reviews on this series, this review will be vague and short. Being that this is a suspense filled story, anything I say about the storyline could be a potential spoiler. I will say that I am extremely happy with the direction Drake and Noelle’s relationship is going. I thought this book really focused on them working together (somewhat) and not always running away. I look forward to where Emma will take these two in the future. I am also hoping that the storyline with Bek takes off somewhere too.
Without giving anything away, this storyline was interesting, because it hit a little too close to home for both Drake and Noelle. These two characters were put into positions that they are not used to and it was interesting to see what direction they chose. I thought this book was very well written. I also loved that we got the perfect mix of mystery and romance. I loved seeing Drake and Noelle’s relationship moving in a positive direction. As always their unique banter and the crazy rantings of Nonna, made me laugh so many times!!!
Tied Bond is NOT a standalone book. Just like the previous books in this series, the mystery storyline is completed by the end of the book, but Drake and Noelle’s story continues on. So it is strongly recommended to read these books in order!!!
So if you are a fan of Emma Hart, you don’t want to miss this book!!! I would also recommend this book/series to anyone who is a fan of a romantic suspense story. If you like a book that is full of twists and turns, mystery, and intrigue…..then PICK this book up, you won’t be sorry!!!
Twisted Bond: (Holly Woods Files #1)
I’m an Italian-Texan woman in a family full of cops. I’m passionate and shoot before I think. You only f*ck with me if you’re stupid.
Photograph cheating spouses. Hand over the evidence. Cash my check.
That was my plan when I returned home to Holly Woods, Texas, and became a private investigator.
Finding the dead body in my dumpster? Yeah… Given the choice, I think I would have opted out of that little discovery, especially since all three of my brothers are cops. And my Italian grandmother is sure the reason I’m single is because of my job.
Of course, my connection to the victim is entirely coincidental. Until I’m hired by her husband to investigate her murder and shoved bang-smack into the path of Detective Drake Nash.
My nemesis, a persistent pain in my ass, and one hell of a sexy son of a bitch.
Shame he still holds a grudge from that time I shot him in the foot twelve years ago, or we could have something. In another life.
So now all I have to do is avoid my nonna’s blind dates, try not to blackmail my brothers into giving me confidential police files, and absolutely do not point my gun at Drake Nash. Or kiss him. Or jump his bones.
All while I hunt down the killer.
Sounds totally simple—until a second body proves that sometimes things that start as coincidences don’t always end up that way…
(Twisted Bond is book one of the Holly Woods Files series and while it does not end in a cliffhanger, it is not a standalone.)

TANGLED BOND (Holly Woods Files, #2)
One date with the sexier-than-sin Detective Drake Nash. Simple.
Until you take into account that my brother finally proposed to his girlfriend, so Nonna is on a warpath—and the crazy old bat has Cupid by the balls.
The upcoming mayoral elections has everyone running on full speed, and while I couldn’t give any less craps about the corrupt Holly Woods mayor’s office, a dead body in the middle of a campaign speech has me thrown right into the middle of it. The victim is close to the mayor, but all he cares about is minimizing the damage to his campaign, so he hires me to work alongside Drake to close the case as quickly as possible.
Bad news for our tentative relationship.
We disagree far more than we agree, but being at loggerheads won’t get this murder solved… Or deal with the arrival of someone from his past.
The mysteries behind the murder aren’t the only things unraveling, and despite being knee-deep in lies and corruption and bonds so tangled they’re almost indecipherable, I have to figure out if I’m willing to fight for Drake the way I do justice…
Or if he’ll be my one who gets away.

TETHERED BOND (Holly Woods Files #3)
Detective Drake Nash: hot, alpha, bossy, and… mine.
Now, if someone could tell his ex that… I don’t care if the summer fayre is coming to Holly Woods and she’s on the planning committee. What I do care about is sugar-filled food, bright lights, late nights… and danger. The type that won’t come in the form of Nonna’s new cantankerous British parrot, Gio. (Please see the damage done to Mom’s new curtains.)
Unfortunately, when the danger comes, it comes in the form of something Holly Woods has never seen. The town is rocked to its core, and once again, I’m in danger. Only this time, it isn’t because of my clients—this time, I’m in danger because of who I am… Because of my heritage.
And despite the HWPD’s best efforts, the bodies keep on piling up.
Drake’s determined to protect me. I’m determined that I can do it myself.
Danger. Mystery. Darkness. Malice.
It’ll be a miracle if any of us make it out of this with guns unfired, cupcakes still frosted, and hearts intact…
