Summary

A spin-off from the number one Amazon best sellers A Not So Meet Cute and So Not Meant to Be and narrated by Jason Clarke and Stella Hunter, USA Today best-selling author Meghan Quinn brings you a heartwarming 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 Rebels and absolute heartthrob 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.

Emotional audiobook

I am used to reading romcoms from Meghan Quinn, having a marriage in peril trope was an interesting and very emotional read. I did laugh at some points but overall is an emotional ride. I liked the characters, their interactions, banter, and their chemistry. I think it was a bit longer than it should've been, some things dragged a bit, but I enjoyed it. The audiobook narrated by Jason Clarke and Stella Hunter was fantastic, I love these narrators, and the way they interact with the story is very entertaining.

Funny and Heartwarming!

This is a spin-off A Not So Meet Cute and So Not Meant To Be. This is a great second chance to love. Ryot and Myla's story is beautifully written, funny, emotional, and heartwarming. They are perfect together. I loved Ryot's determination to win his wife back. Some scenes are hilarious! I loved the friendship in the story. Jason Clarke and Stella Hunter did an excellent job with the narration. I enjoyed it. I like Meghan Quinn's writing!

seriously does this women ever write a bad book!

so good, so so good. firstly, duet narration chef's kiss, both narrator's did and outstanding job but Jason Clarke, Holy smokes can that man perform 😉
the book is excellent, I was a bit dubious at first as I thought, she's ready to throw in the towel after a few difficult months, especially as how Riot had supported her in the past. but as the storyline develops you get a clearer understanding of Myla's thought process. I was pleased this book includes characters from other books of Meghan's that I've read, although there's no need to have read them to enjoy this story, other than why the hell wouldn't you want to.? 5 Well deserved stars.

A frustrating listen!

Untying the Knot is a spin off from A Not So Meet Cute and So Not Meant to Be and is the story of Ryot Bisley and Myla.
Ryot and his wife Myla have been together over a decade. They had a not so meet cute and lots of will they, wont they moments which led to them building a friendship before losing touch when Ryot was drafted to major league baseball team Chicago Bobbies. However, fate had them running into each other again and they finally gave into the lust and their relationship blossomed into a long, happy marriage.
Fast forward to the present day and Ryot has found life after Baseball tough. He wanted to find a career, a new purpose in life so decides to go into business with his brother and uproots their lives from Chicago to LA without discussing it with Myla. Myla is desperately unhappy, however of sitting her husband down and discussing this with him she decides to serve him with divorce papers. Ryot had noticed Myla was quiet but had no idea she was that unhappy, he loves her so very much and refuses to accept the papers and tells her he will fight for her, and he does. Myla turns into the “roommate” from hell, honestly, I disliked her from the off. She whined, whinged, and moaned so much then became the ultimate b@&*h. Her communication skills were nil. I felt so sorry for Ryot who was showing her in every way possible that he loved her and yet she was just vile. I couldn’t find one single redeeming quality about Myla throughout this book, I realise that after you hear her back story you are supposed to feel sorry for her and understand why she is the way she is, but she’d gone too far for me.
Jason Clarke pulled off an amazing performance as the heartbroken, devastated husband who went above and beyond to prove to his wife that while he may have dropped the ball slightly, he loves her more than anything in the world. Jason’s showcased all the emotions of someone who is totally blindsided then treated appallingly to absolute perfection. Stella Hunter brought Myla to life, and I must be honest, I feel like I couldn’t connect with the character as I didn’t feel any emotion in her performance. For someone who feels their life was uprooted without consultation and then feeling neglected in a new state not really knowing anyone and then not feeling heard ultimately leading her to believe she has no choice but to leave her husband despite her still loving him, I felt nothing from Stella, all I got for the bulk of the book was snark and b@&*hiness which had me despising Myla. I just couldn’t connect to that character, and feel the performance was a big part of it.
Overall, this book was just okay for me. I feel the fact I couldn’t connect to the FMC, or the female narrator played a big part in this. I usually listen to books in one sitting, but this took me so much longer and I was contemplating not finishing at one point, and I believe had it not been for Jason’s performance I would have given up. I was hoping by the end that my feelings toward Myla would change but even when it came to the HEA, instead of the usual warm and fuzzy feeling, I felt nothing!

A story about AFTER the happily ever after

Meghan Quinn has written another fantastic novel with Untying the Knot. It's a story that's focus is on a married couple in a long established relationship. One I would personally like to see more of in the romance world. Myla and Ryot's story covers the entirety of their relationship. Starting from the moment it begins to fall apart and filling in the gaps for the reader of how they got to that point in the first place. Alongside how they move on from the realisation their marriage is failing.

Both Hero and heroine are really likeable characters, Jason Clarke and Stella Hunter's duet narration of the audiobook is the perfect portrayal of the emotional whirlwind that this story is. Jason especially impressed me with how he voiced Ryot's frustration and hurt that he couldn't understand Myla's decision to end their marriage. With Stella portraying Myla's hurt that her husband of 12 years, simply doesn't know her, doesn't see her anymore.

Meghan wrote a truly heart breaking backstory for Myla, what that woman has been through, wow. You simply cannot help but want everything to work out right for her. To ensure she has her happily ever after within her own sense of self worth. Add in appearances from other characters we know and love, including JP and Kelsey's wedding, and two great additional secondary characters in Nichole and Banner, that is so much to love about this book. But this is a Meghan book after all and of course there is lots of humorous moments dotted throughout. Not forgetting the chemistry in 'those' moments... OMG they are HOT!!!!!!!

Untying the Knot is right up there amongst my favourites of Meghan's books and one I will absolutely revisit again. With plenty of story, depth of character, emotional angst and a splash of humour there isn't anything not to love about this one.

Ryot and Myra!

After an injury forced Ryot to retire from baseball before he was ready, he was struggling trying to determine what direction he wanted his future to take. When his next career move required relocating to California, he didn’t think of how it would affect his wife, Myra. He believed that everything was fine until she served him with divorce papers and now, he is determined to do whatever is necessary to win her back.

Myra has always supported Ryot and his career but since moving to California she has never felt more alone. She has a difficult past where no one ever supported and put her first and she wasn’t about to let that happen again. She thought Ryot would always be there for her and feels he is too consumed by his career but when he realizes his mistakes will she be willing to open her heart and let him show her that he can be the man she needs him to be.

Ryot and Myra take us on an emotional agreement as the one thing that was never in doubt was their love for each other. The situation they find themselves in is a wake-up call and forces them to remember the love they share and what truly matters. The narrators were a perfect choice for the story as they brought out all the angst, humor, and love between the characters.

4.5 stars

4.5 stars Ryot and Myla's marriage is in big trouble. We see glimpses of their relationship from the past to the present and you see how the troubles may have started. There's plenty of cameos from the Cane Brothers and mentions of other characters and I have to say that I really enjoyed this. I love how the audio was in duet style. The couple were amazing together and I enjoyed how they were a little catty with each other but snapshots of how they fell in love in the past. Another winner from Ms. Quinn.

The narration is outstanding!

I received a free early listening copy of this audiobook in exchange for my honest review.


This book completely drew me in! The duet narration is done perfectly and sounds wonderful!!

I have only one big issue with this book and that's that I felt the author threw too much at the heroine. Myla already started out with so much baggage and I felt what happens later on in the book was too much (at least for me, I guess). And I don't like that this one specific thing was used as a plot device for Myla and Ryot's relationship when Myla already has so few people she us really close to.

Overall, the book ends on a hopeful note (and has an HEA of course).
But it still kind of impacts my enjoyment of this book that was otherwise really great.

Second chance / broken marriage is such a hit and miss trope for me and here it was done exceptionally well! While it was clear why the marriage was in trouble, I never hated Ryot. He always stayed likable, even though he made a lot of bad decisions as far as their relationship went. Also, the way they played pranks at one another was honestly very funny!

Your heartbeat is the cadence of my life

Untying the Knot by Meghan Queen was a tough pill to swallow. Following Ryot and Myla’s story gutted me in some of the best ways.
This married couples second chance romance was such an overwhelming wide range of emotions. Within 4 chapters I had already screamed at the book, cried, laughed hysterically, and got the butterflies – to say Meghan takes you on a wild ride with this one would be an understatement.
I enjoyed how Meghan took us on the journey of Ryot and Myla’s meet cute, the strong bond they have, the love for one another and all the messy things that they’ve already overcome. I think this setup helps understand the couple a lot better.
It was so great seeing the Cane brothers, Lottie, Kelsey, some Bobbies and of course Banner and Penn – I always enjoy seeing how Meghan will link them, and how the future looks for some of my favorites.
The audio narration was fantastic as usual when it comes to Stella Hunter and Jason Clarke. Stella perfectly portrayed the unique personality of Myla, her fiery demeanor and vicious stubborn streak!
Jason as Ryot was the other side to Myla’s coin. He was calm, collected, and loyal to a fault. Ryot stole my heart with his unwillingness to give up on the love of his life.
Untying the Knot will have you screaming into your pillow, smiling ridiculously at the swoon worthy moments, laughing, and wanting to let those around you know you love them.

✫✫ 3.75 Stars ✫✫

Well this is going to be a bit of a weird review because I loved a lot about this one but there was a chunk in the story I really just felt sad about. In the beginning I was upset by the way these two treated each other and I'm glad I kept going because once they stop this book became awesome! I loved that this couple spent time talking and figuring things out and I loved the ending (mostly). This couple has a great connection & chemistry. I loved that they compromised and worked on getting back to when they put each other first. I'm glad I stuck with this one and I could get past the beginning but I also have to say the ending was hard. In a nutshell... i felt EVERY emotion while listening to this one from Angry to happy to swoony to sad.... it covered it all.

The narration was great as always!

14 hours I'll never get back

If this is how couples are today then no wonder divorce rate is so damn high.
she felt ignored for a couple months so she felt the need to serve divorce papers. mf'ing eye roll.
she broke up with him in the past because as a pro baseball player he couldn't leave to be with her while dealing with her father's passing. even though she wasn't that close with the old man.
And .. when she gave him the papers he asked why and she didn't want to tell him. and blamed him for everything. well if you could have sat him down and told him how you were feeling it probably wouldn't have gotten to that point. instead of saying if you don't know then I'm not telling you.
I totally get people have childhood trauma. but when you realize that you have it stop letting it hold you back!!
oh and her friend was sick, she goes to the hospital and asks her about her cancer and treatments. her friend says she doesn't want to talk about it.. she says well I do. wtf? everything was always about her. and everyone felt the need to walk in eggshells for her.
as someone whose dad died at 14 yrs old (love the man tho he was a little too rough on us kids physically) AND had stage 3c cancer I feel I can say all this. lol
I'm usually a big fan of Meghan Quinn. and really liked this series. but after this book I will be waiting for more reviews on the next book before I decide to use a credit.

as for performance. Jason Clarke was wonderful as always. Stella Hunter talks thru her nose so that gets really annoying. glad it's over

5 STARS! Heat-filled, heart-wrenching & humorous second-chance at marital happiness romance!

Meghan Quinn’s Untying the Knot is a fantastic, full-circle, fight-for-this-love second chance at marital happiness romance. I love second-chance romances, but there aren’t a whole lot of second-chance stories about married couples falling apart and finding their way back together—but there should be! Untying the Knot was an engaging, emotional offering in this specific sub-genre, and Quinn has outdone herself in the telling of Myla and Ryot’s complex and layered love story. I listened to the audiobook, and I was completely enthralled with Jason Clarke and Stella Hunter’s outstanding performances.

Through the use of flashbacks to the past, Meghan toggles between the past and the present to give her readers the richly developed backstory of this couple’s 11-year history. Their attraction was electric from the start, but there was a right-person-wrong-time feel to this couple’s early interactions which paired with Myla’s leave-it-up-to-fate approach gives the reader a good understanding of the time passage between their initial meeting and their actual marriage. Between her traumatic childhood, her abusive mother, and her struggle to find herself as an adult, Myla had a lot of emotional work to do. But through all of that, Whether they were in the friend-zone or fighting their feelings, Ryot was Myla’s rock, an anchor in her storm. He was one of the most patient and understanding heroes I have ever read, and I especially loved the careful attention he paid to this woman. He didn’t miss a thing, and he was so insightful. Myla was his absolute world… until life got in the way and she just wasn’t. Being a long-married woman myself, it was painful to watch this couple crumble, and I found myself internally screaming “no! no! no!” on more than one occasion.

Untying the Knot was an emotional rollercoaster full of the highs of marital bliss and lows of the daily grind of marriage. This couple fiercely loved each other, but they had so many things happening in their life all at the same time that something was inevitably going to fall—and it was their marriage for a time. The love they shared, the heat that blazed between them, and their history were of the once-in-a-lifetime variety, though, and sometimes a little struggle is needed as a reminder of what you have. I swooned, sobbed and sighed my way through this heat-filled, heart-wrenching and humorous second-chance at marital happiness romance. Five smooches from me for Untying the Knot by Meghan Quinn!

DNF

Thought this was going to be a story about a married couple who lost their way and had a chance to rekindle the spark and save their marriage. Nope!

Narrators were great, but this story and female lead were so god awfully cringey, I could not finish it. Save your money and time and skip this book.

Nope.

I'll start with the positive. I enjoyed both the narrators and the style of narration used to tell this story.

I spent 14 hours listening to Ryot apologize and be absolutely spineless meanwhile Myla was the most unlikable, immature, whiny brat that made trudging through this story a real chore. Ryot was so over the top with how sorry he was for a pretty minor offense and never once stood up to her and her emotional abuse. The love scenes were decent, only clouded by my dislike for Myla and had a hard time getting on board with Ryot being hot when he was such a massive pushover. I never expect a lot from these type of books-- but this is Meghan Quinn book #2 for me and I am wondering if all her female leads are immature and unlikeable?

Second chance romance

Jason Clarke and Stella Hunter both capture the different characters perfectly and are very talented narrators. They had me immersed in the story. The meet cute between Ryot and Myla was perfection and their quirky interactions throughout the years were fun to hear. There were ups and downs in the book and their current status was a little heartbreaking. There was definite steam between these two and they are a little bit k!nky. My only reason for the 4 star (vs 5) was I had a hard time with Myla at times in the present day. I understand she is hurt and had an emotionally abusive past, but some of her pettiness and blatantly ignoring her own rules (while he is expected to follow to a T) was irritating. Overall, a wonderful story!

A must read ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I always know when I start a Meghan Quinn book that it is going to be 5 stars and this one was no exception. Untying the Knot delves into the life of a wife who wants to leave her marriage and a husband that will do anything to save it. I like that the story would go from present day to different times in their past so that you got glimpses in their life together and how they got to where they are. I got very frustrated with Myla several times but the more I learned about her past, the more her actions made sense. I love that Ryot was so patient with her and how much he loved her and didn’t want to lose her. This is definitely one of my favorite books by Meghan Quinn. And can we talk about the narration? Jason Clarke and Stella Hunter gave a 5-star performance 🙌🏻 and the spice level was off the charts 🥵

Can't Even Finish

Very rarely will I quit a book, but I have to. This one is so annoying that it's putting me in a bad mood. I kept hoping for redemption, but it's taking too long. I can't tolerate the neediness of the heroine or the pettiness another second. I loved the Not So Meet Cute series. but I just can't with this book.
