Publisher Description

He'd give his life to protect her…but he’ll demand everything from her in return.

Madison Archer-Pershing fled her murderous, soon-to-be ex-husband, running straight to operative Matt Montgomery, despite the fact he once broke her heart. Under his protection and in his arms, she can’t help but fall for him again. Then her husband discovers them together and coerces her back to his glittering, dangerous world of politics, greed, and deception. But Madison knows his deepest secrets…just like she knows he’ll try to silence her forever.

Matt knows he’s bad for good-girl Madison. He’s too rough, too commanding, but he can’t resist the woman who still owns his heart. Though he’s determined to keep her safe at any cost…he can’t protect her from his own dark desires. As she melts in his embrace, shocking revelations rock them. Peril lurks around every corner. And when he’s confronted with the most wrenching decision of his life, will he rip out his heart to save her or risk everything to claim her forever?

A Solid Read

Shayla Black gives the reader a solid conclusion to Matt and Madison's story. Full of drama, twists, turns, sizzle, steam, and more. These two went through it all and came out stronger and more solid than ever. Wicked Lovers: Soldiers For Hire series have all been solid 4 or 5 star reads for me.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Feel the power of Matt and Madison!

This is part two of Matt and Madison’s story and it is not a standalone. Wicked As Secrets must be read first. The story picks up where part one left off and in stellar Shayla Black fashion, the heat is on! You can feel the tension and angst that Madison is going through as her past has caught up to her but now, she has someone in her corner who will do everything in his power to keep her safe. Matt is there for the good the bad and the ugly and the two are just perfect for each other. The problem is, will their love for one another be enough to carry them through all of the obstacles that they must face? If you think you know what goes on behind closed doors, you do not…This is one storyline that you just cannot put down. I recommend this book and the rest of the series!

I loved how the reader was kept in the dark until the end!

Wicked and Bare by Shayla Black is the conclusion of the story of Madison and Matt which began with Wicked as Secrets. In order to get the divorce she desired, Madison was forced back into the hornet’s nest for three months while her husband’s grandfather ran his Senatorial reelection campaign. This time she did not go alone. Matt and another EM Security employee went along as her bodyguards to protect her from her husband. What then ensued is a long, difficult road for both of them as they tried to maintain their bond, despite everything which happened around them, simultaneously looking for any leverage that would guarantee Madison’s exit from her marriage by the end.

As usual, the author created a incredibly well-written, riveting story full of suspense, intrigue, and plenty of alpha males and amazing women. This take regarding what happens behind the scenes in the political world was pretty cynical and a worst case scenario. It is unfortunately not hard to believe that elements of this story could exist in reality. I loved the way the story was tied up in a neat package, finished with a bow. While the resolution at the end was predictable, as romance novels have a happily ever after, the author didn’t focus on the planning of the op. This was different from the majority of the books in this series. What happens in the end is as much of a surprise to the reader as it was to Madison, who had been kept in the dark. I loved experiencing the plan with Madison as it unfolded. As fans of the author will expect, this book is especially steamy, touching on BDSM relationships. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and recommend it to all Shayla Black fans as well as fans of erotic romantic suspense novels.

I am voluntarily submitting this honest review after reading an advanced complementary copy of this book via Booksprout.
