he·ro: /hirō/ (n.) : an admired individual who acts courageously in the face of adversity, often risking his or her own safety for the wellbeing of others without seeking recognition for acts of duty. (e.g. Everything Elliot Garnet is not, but wishes he could be.)
Elliot Garnet has never been popular. His aptitude and single-minded focus on success has earned him a fortune but has led to a solitary existence and a desire to keep his private life private. Romance holds little temptation, but there’s one woman who never fails to unravel his composure. Except, she’s so far out of his league they only ever speak in his fantasies, until fortune—or fate—causes their paths to cross again.
fan·ta·sy: /ˈfan(t)əsē/ (n.) : an imagined occurrence that is so improbable it has no basis in reality. (e.g. Nadia Rosza, the exotic goddess and object of Elliot’s most carnal desires reciprocating his feelings.)
With a revolving door of attractive men entering and exiting Nadia’s life, she’s yet to find Mr. Right. And after a disastrous date with yet another Mr. Wrong, she’s doubtful she’ll ever find true love, until an unexpected hero comes to her rescue. Elliot’s reserved, quiet nature lures her in, but the moment she gets too close he pulls back, tempting her all the more.
She’s an impulsive romantic and he’s a methodical realist. Their volatile chemistry ties him in knots, and despite his efforts to hide his painful past, Nadia slowly unravels his secrets and Elliot becomes unhinged, uncensored … UNTIED.

Tanya Rae’s rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
Untied is the second book in the Mastermind Series. This is Elliot Garnet and Nadia Rosza’s story. Elliot has wanted Nadia for a while. Ever since he went to her dance studio with Asher (Blind, Book 1), his friend and one of his partners. Elliot is the CEO of GeekPeek. Nadia has just been thrown out of her now ex-boyfriend’s apartment with nowhere to go and Elliot comes to her rescue. Both Elliot and Nadia have many insecurities and it is kind of funny that their insecurities would complement each other if they weren’t so insecure. There is a lot of angst in Elliot and Nadia’s story. Elliot is a nerd and the underdog but, Nadia doesn’t see that and she needs a hero.
I loved reading Untied. Now who’s story is next. I can’t wait will it be Jet, maybe Hunter? The other GeekPeek partners. I give Untied 4.5 stars.
nerd: /nərd/ (n.) : A single-minded, sophisticated individual who is often unsatisfied with anything less than mastery when pertaining to a subject of interest. (e.g. The girl that broke his heart.)
Scarlet Farrow is disappointed—and a little drunk—after another disastrous blind date. Motivated by too much merlot and too little sex, she journals a long winded rant questioning where all the real men have gone. By bottle two, she mistakes the tirade for quality journalism and submits it to the local newspaper. When the paper publishes her drivel, exposing her deepest secrets and leaving her mortified, she swears off wine, writing and dating. Having swum in the dating cesspool too long, she’s saddest about the wine.
Asher Roan has earned a fortune as the co-creator of a social media network, but his wealth tends to be all women see. Uninterested in a hollow imitation of love, he avoids dating as a rule. He trusted a female with his heart once, and she pulverized it, an experience he’s never gotten over or been able to move past.
When Asher reads Scarlet’s editorial tender feelings resurface and he confronts the opportunity of a lifetime. Utilizing the resources at his disposal, he diligently researches what women want as he embarks on a personal transformation from geeky introvert to sophisticated alpha male, delivering the performance of a lifetime. His only condition…she must come to him on his terms and her trust—BLIND.
Fantasies blur the line of reality as both Asher and Scarlet yearn to see the truth after so many secrets have been left in the dark.
