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?

Whew! Shayla Black can leave you hanging when it comes to her incredible writing! The conclusion to Zyron & Tessa's story was all about the love and lies and finding the real truth. I felt so much while reading this book. The heartache that they each felt when they believed what they believed. This book was full of grit, heat, and a whole lotta love.
Another wicked read
This was such a good read. I could not put it down and root for the Edington and Munoz families along with Tessa and Zy. There was so much going on it kept you on your toes. Seeing how Zy and Tessa dealt with everything that was thrown at them was so good. Shayla again left you wanting more and did not disappoint. Cannot wait for the next book I’m this series and happy to hear about the other family members. This series and sub series are so good. You don’t have to read them all as they are stand alone but why wouldn’t you.
