A spin-off from the #1 Amazon bestsellers, A Not So Meet Cute and So Not Meant To Be, USA Today bestselling author Meghan Quinn brings you a heart-warming, yet hilarious full-length novel on what life is like after the happily ever after.
Ryot Bisley is my husband.
Yes, the former third baseman for the Chicago Bobbies and absolute heart throb of the Windy City. That Ryot Bisley.
The first time I ran into him, he was grumpy, a horrific host, and left me on his sofa with nothing but a nylon baseball flag to use as a blanket.
The second time, he reluctantly bought me dinner, stared at my chest the entire night, and still sported that permanent frown.
The third time . . . well, that was a game changer. His smile captured me, his teasing charmed me, and his touches excited me.
So when he was called up to the majors that didn’t stop us from knocking it out of the park and all the way down the aisle.
Eleven years later…I’d love to say we’re happy as ever but the man who sent me dirty text messages every day is long gone and Mr. Frowny Face is back.
He’s so focused on trying to build a life after baseball that he doesn’t see the life we’ve already created together. . .so I make the hard decision and serve him divorce papers.
Problem is…my husband refuses to accept those papers. Instead, he has a new game plan that makes untying the knot of our marriage a little tricky. And just when I thought I wanted to be traded . . . he’s slowly, tantalizingly roping me back in.

Untying the Knot is life after the wooing and the ring. The book delivers on this front as it switches between Ryot and Myla falling in love and their marriage coming to an end. This was why I was drawn to the book. I wanted to read about what happens after the romance.
Being a hopeless romantic, I enjoyed the chapters in the past a lot more than those in the present. Myla’s hesitation at falling in love and Ryot’s patience made them a good match for each other. He rose to the occasion so many times throughout their relationship. Understanding the background of their characters and the obstacles they overcame made the current state of their marriage all the more heartbreaking. These chapters made me invested in their happily ever after.
While it hurt to read about them in the present, it was also frustrating. Despite Ryot’s insistence he would try to win Myla back, he never seemed to follow through. I needed more groveling and Ryot to show he heard what Myla was telling him. While the first half was sometimes entertaining, it was longer than necessary. More time should have been spent with them trying to listen to each other and work through their problems, and that does not happen until the second half. The resolution was not as satisfying as I hoped it would be.
