What will she surrender to him for his protection?
I’m Vanessa. Someone has broken into my place…but taken nothing. I’m terrified. And alone. My work crush appears unexpectedly and offers to keep me safe. At what price? We have a past Rush doesn’t remember… So I offer him a night he won’t forget. But he already knows everything about me—my ambitions, habits, and forbidden desires. And that’s not the only secret he’s been keeping…
He wants her…and he doesn’t care that she’s the enemy.
Chase “Zyron” Garrett left a bloody stint with Uncle Sam for the personal security business. His employment agreement forbids hookups with co-workers, which isn’t a problem—until Tessa Lawrence, the office secretary and single mom, is harassed by her vengeful ex-boyfriend. Zy is assigned to protect her, but the moment he meets the gorgeous blonde, those contractual restrictions tighten around him like a noose.
Tessa Lawrence is alone in the world…except for her newborn baby, and she’s determined to survive without a man. Then Zy walks through her door. Fiercely protective yet tender, he’s everything she wants in a man, lover, and father for her daughter. But he’s totally off-limits. If she falls, she’ll be fired.
When a teammate is captured and the enemy predicts their every move, it’s clear they’ve got a mole. The bosses task Zy with discovering their traitor, and all clues point to the woman he’s fast falling for. With danger lurking, he finds himself caught in a tangle of unquenched need and searing betrayal. Will their love be the greatest casualty of all?
He'd protect her from the world. But who will protect her from him?
For agonizing months, Chase “Zyron” Garrett has been forbidden from touching Tessa, the pretty office assistant who makes him burn. But when danger strikes EM Security Management and top-secret information is leaked, it’s obvious the team has a mole…and the evidence points to the woman he’s fallen for. The bosses demand he investigate her, so he resolves to stop at nothing, even stripping her bare—body and soul—for the truth.
Tessa Lawrence has known heartbreak in the past, but Zy has always been her staunchest protector. Since he was contractually off-limits, the Southern, sassy single mom clung to her friendship with the daring demolitions expert who’d stolen her heart and focused on making the best life for her daughter. But when the barriers between her and Zy are suddenly gone, she welcomes him into her bed, not realizing she’s giving him the power to destroy her. Or that the enemy is watching.
Then the unthinkable happens, and Tessa is forced to make the most gut-wrenching choice of her life. Will their love survive the betrayal or will their future end before it’s even begun?
I dared her to spend a hot, no-strings night with me. Now I’m determined to keep her forever.
I’m Trace Weston, recently reformed womanizer. In the blink of an eye, I went from busy bachelor to full-time single dad. My life was already complicated before my sister-in-law asked me to show off my bedroom skills to her bestie, who’s wanting to experience real pleasure now that her one-and-only long-term relationship is over. Gorgeous Masey Garrett isn’t my “usual.” She’s shy, sassy, driven, and incredibly kind. Suddenly I’m falling fast…but she’s only mine for a night.
What’s a former player to do? Change the rules.
Now she’s under my roof night after night, letting me into her body and her life. Her heart? Not so much. She loves my newborn son. Me? I can’t tell. I’m pulling out all the stops to win her over, but she’s not taking me seriously. Other than passion, how can I reach her? Every attempt only pulls me deeper under her spell. Sure, I could drop an L bomb…except that once imploded my heart. But when her past collides with my desired future, can I risk everything and dare Masey to stay with me forever?

***** It was straight-up nine o’clock. Time to get some answers. Tessa opened the door, greeting him in a robe and a smile, looking as if she’d just curled her hair and retouched her makeup. She also seemed nervous as hell. “Hi.” She stepped back. “Come in. How was the meeting with the bosses?” She wanted to get right to the point? Too bad. He was going to make her wait. Zy shrugged. “Intense. It’s a lot of details to work out, especially since we have new information. How was dinner with Cash’s dad?” “Nice,” she said with a smile full of forced cheer. “Craig took us to a place that, um…had wonderful burgers and chicken. Yeah, on the south side of town. They sang to her. But Craig is doing well. I’m glad we went.” Liar, liar… But why?
Get ready to laugh (and cry just a little) with the hilarious escape we all need—plus there’s a super hot neighbor, the HOA from hell, and Aunt Maggie’s massive wine collection. Back in the Burbs from @@averyflynn and @tracywolffbooks is a must read that will leave you smiling and ready to take on all your doubters—even if sometimes that doubter is yourself. —> https://averyflynn.com/books/back-in-the-burbs/...
Their kiss had torched his good sense and sent his best intentions up in flames.
He took her face in his hands. Tessa’s lush lips were mere inches from his, and all he could think about was covering them with his own while he stripped off everything that shielded her body from his stare. He ached to carry her to bed, work every inch…
If they cross this line from friends to lovers, it would change everything.
A sudden, firm knock on her front door had her whirling around. Her breath caught. Her heart stopped. With her stomach twisting in anticipation, she flipped on the porch light and peeked out the peephole. Today had proven that anyone associated with EM Security in any way needed to be careful. But as she’d suspected—and hoped—Zy stood in the circle of murky light on her porch, in a white tank, a black jacket, and faded jeans. He looked like a man on a mission.
This happened! Wicked and True released today, so Zy and Tessa’s duet is now complete! I love this story with all my heart and I’m so thrilled to share it with y’all! #newreleasetuesday #newreleasebooks #wickedanddevoted #wickedanddevotedseries #authors #romanticsuspense #sexybooks #romance #romancewritersofinstagram...
