“The featured product was provided free of charge to facilitate my review, but all opinions are 100% the opinion of the Coupon Savvy Sarah family. This post may contain affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.”

M. Mabie is a fantastic author and I am so happy to have discovered her books last year! Her Wake Series blew me away so I was naturally psyched when I caught wind of a spin-off of the Wake Series called KNOT. 

The book KNOT is a contemporary romance and a complete standalone book. It is the first spin-off from the best-selling Wake Series. You do not need to read BAIT, SAIL or ANCHOR to enjoy this book in its entirety, but if you love angst you'll enjoy them, too...they are fantastic and it just enriches the characters even more to have a little more background!

Excerpt from KNOT by M. Mabie

He knows everything.
She has all the damn answers. 

I’ve always been a free spirit. It’s my nature.
I crave control, but with her it’s far more.

He’s a power hungry climber.
Her wealth could buy and sell me.

It’s too much pressure being the center of anyone’s focus.
She underestimates my desire for her, my need to please just her.

When he’s vulnerable, it’s hard to deny him.
Her crooked smile cripples me.

He hides his demons, but I’m no fool.
She thinks not committing to anyone makes her more honest. She’s wrong.

A man like him deserves someone who can offer that kind of love.
She promises nothing, yet I feel like a king when she says my name.

I never let anyone possess me like he did. Not before. Not after.
My greatest regret was compromising. I should have never held back.

Still, when we’re apart I’m not myself.
I miss the days when she was just down the hall.

He’s better off without me, and it hurts.
The ugly truth is I need her more than she needs me.

Our relationship was born out of lust and curiosity.
The lies we told ourselves killed it.

Together, we found Nirvana.
We learned it was all a mirage.

I ruined him.
I broke her heart.

I keep coming back.
I can’t let her go.

Our Thoughts:

First off....even though you don't "need" to before reading KNOT, I do highly suggest binge-reading Bait, Sail and Anchor. They are just fantastic and it gives you a peek into the lead male character Reggie in KNOT. **No Spoilers Here**....but KNOT is a delves into the complex and complicated nature of the relationship between the main characters Reggie and Nora. The biggest obstacle they face is that despite the confidence and even bossiness of their personalities, they both question having and making a relationship work because they don't feel they can be enough for the other person. This is solely based on what they feel the other person wants...assumptions. Trust me, I have done it before in my marriage and I know my husband has as well - we are all guilty of it. Thankfully we have learned that little thing called communication! This book will pull at your heart, your mind - it will frustrate you and make you want to smack a character or two around - but it is a love story in which couples like myself, who face real issues (not automatic "fairy tale happily ever after stuff" - we make our happy ever after!), can appreciate the honestly and frankness.
