Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Betts spins a realistic but problematic follow-up to 2009's Tangled Up in Love. Jenna Langan can't get over her ex-husband, undercover cop Gage Marshall, and the divorce she never wanted. Gage isn't happy either, but he can't bear to reveal that his work led him to undertake various reprehensible acts. One night, Jenna lures Gage over, drugs him and ties him up, and sexually assaults him—he does consent once he wakes up, but some readers may not find that sufficient mitigation—in hopes of getting pregnant. Gage is furious, but can't walk away if he might be a father. As they explore the lies that destroyed their marriage, their friend Grace revenges herself on her cheating fiancé by wrecking his apartment and car and stealing his dog. Readers looking for a diversion from formulaic perfect couples will certainly find it here, but the characters' amoral behavior is neither amusing nor compelling. (Aug.)

Customer Reviews

This book gave much insight into the lives and thought processes of a couple whose marriage failed.
Tina Pavlik
I really enjoyed Tangled Up in Love, and was expecting another fun, steamy story, but I was delighted when I got so much more in Loves Me, Loves Me Knot.
Pamela Cayne
The subject of kids comes up, and Jenna is melancholy because she wanted kids with Gage and can't imagine having kids with anyone else.

I can't begin to say what a bad taste this book left in my mouth. I finished the whole thing essentially just to find out what happened, but the author lost me the minute she used sexual assault as a plot device. Drugging someone and tying them to a bed to force them to have a kid? Not cool for a woman or a man, sorry. I knew it would never happen, but in my opinion "Happily Ever After" in this book would have involved the hero pressing charges. Nothing that the hero did to the heroine, not his changing his mind about having a family, or any aspect of their divorce, made that ok.

This was not the book's only failing. The worst offender was the quite frankly silly framing story- a magic loom that weaves magic yarn that gets people together? What?

I have to agree with another reviewer- Susan Elizabeth Phillips did this story MUCH better. Skip this and pick up Nobody's Baby But Mine instead.

Jenna and Gage were once married. And while I do like the idea of rekindling old romances and lost loves, this fell short.

I was intrigued by the blurb but within the first two chapters I was shaking my head and thinking 'No, no, no that is so wrong.' Jenna wants to have a child, it's a driving force within her and rather than go the legal way about it, she tries deceit and drugging. In real life, what she did was Sexual Assault by drugging him, tying him up and taking advantage of him while he was semi-conscious. Lets also mention that Gage is a COP, ummm, wouldn't he know the law let alone feel very very violated. That pretty much set the scene for me. Although I liked the rest of the book to some degree, I really felt Betts could've used a different strategy to get them together.

That said, although this was her first book I read, I always believe in giving an author another shot.

I love Heidi Betts as an author...this series...and the characters she constructs. I loved the obvious dynamics between Jenna and Gage. I did NOT however enjoy the primary plotline, which was Jenna's devious, selfish attempt to get pregnant despite her ex husband's insistence that he didn't want children. There is absolutely no way to justify an act of rape. And yes, it WAS rape. Like another reviewer mentioned, this never would have been a reverse plotline that anyone in their right mind would have accepted. So why do some find it insignificant because it brings them together in the end result? Sexual chemistry between them nonwithstanding, she STILL drugged him...she STILL deceived him...and she STILL held him against his will. What kind of example does this story serve? That a man's choices are secondary to a woman's, and with a few drugs and some bondage, you can achieve anything your little heart desires? Yes, I enjoyed this story to an extent, but on some notes, it left me with a very bad taste in my mouth. There are a million other ways this story could have been written. Betts chose a very tacky and deplorable one. It's also interesting to mention that this same story was also very similarly written FIRST by Susan Elizabeth Phillips. Not very original Heidi!

because it seems to be a trend among romance writers to have the heroine do terrible things to the hero and to have the hero forgive the heroine for things that just aren't forgivable. You would never write Jenna and Gage's story in reverse for example. Say Gage was the one who wanted the baby and Jenna didn't because of her career so they split up. Would you ever think it was okay for Gage to drug her and tie her up and try to get her pregnant to force her to have his baby and then let him raise it by himself? Even if she was into the sex once she woke up & he got her all hot? If he tricked her into getting pregnant against her will would this be forgivable? Legal? Not likely. I think over the top feminists are writing some of these stories.

Likewise the Zack and Grace story line goes way out of bounds. You would never think it was okay if Zack trashed Grace's apartment & vehicle and stole her dog and important childhood keepsake. You would think he was psycho and had lost his mind. You would never write a story where Grace got back with him after he committed that violence. Not even if Grace had cheated. Grace was violently out of control and needs some jail time and anger management courses IMO. Also if I was Zack I'd be seriously worried about my dog's safety. I have a feeling Zack will still be begging Grace's forgiveness for something he didn't do in book 3 and everyone will shrug off what she did to his stuff simply because he's rich and that is a common prejudice.

That said, this is an entertaining read. It's just not about decent heroines or smart heros. I'm just a little tired of reading about abusive females and abused heros.

I picked up Loves Me, Loves Me Knot because I liked the cover. That guy looks like a tall drink of water and very sexy in his pajamas...and I'm a sucker for a good set of shoulders. Sue me.

The story opens with a woman named Charlotte pushing an old family spinning wheel up into the attic. She's convinced it's magic and brings true love to the person she's thinking about when she weaves the yarn. She's just made some yarn for her niece, Jenna, who's been divorced from her husband Gage over a year ago. Jenna still loves Gage and didn't want a divorce.

Right after we meet Jenna, the story set me off for the rest of the book. Jenna is house-sitting for her aunt Charlotte, and Jenna's two best friends come over for drinks and get drunk. The subject of kids comes up, and Jenna is melancholy because she wanted kids with Gage and can't imagine having kids with anyone else. They hatch a plan to invite him over, add drugs to his beer, and then Jenna will tie him up and have sex with him to try to get pregnant. Now, I know this is supposed to be a lighthearted romance, but I really had a problem with that scenario. If the sexes would have been reversed he'd go to jail for that. I couldn't let that go and it marred my enjoyment of the rest of the book.

Gage is upset when he realizes Jenna tried to get pregnant, as the reason they got divorced was because he didn't want kids and she did. He decides he's got to keep an eye on her until she knows if she's pregnant, so he stays with her while she's house sitting. There are some tense moments, but they do talk about where things went wrong and revisit their relationship, including the reasons why he suddenly decided he didn't want kids after they were already married.

If it wouldn't have been for the involuntary stud service scene I might have enjoyed this book, but I just couldn't get past it.
