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?
Kept me on the edge of my seat!
OMG Tessa and Zy totally stole my heart! Shayla Black has this amazing ability to make love her characters in their books but get super mad at them when they are secondary characters (I am looking at you Hunter, Joaquin, Logan!). This book kept me on the edge of my seat just waiting to read what happened next! I can't wait to read the conclusion to their story in the next book!
Liked main characters
I’ll start by saying that I liked the book. And I have liked the previous books as well. However the three bosses in this book made me really dislike them when I like them in their own previous books. They’re selfish and manipulative and it made me almost not want to finish the book because I just started disliking them more and more.
Shayla Black is right on target, every time

Wicked as Lies
By: Shayla Black
Shayla Black is right on target…every time…
Wicked as Lies is the third installment of the vastly popular Wicked & Devoted series by Shayla Black. While you get to see some favorite characters, this one focuses on Zyron (aka Chase Garrett). The Zac Efron look-a-like has been assigned to protect a fellow co-worker, a woman that just so happens to push every one of his happy buttons. When the assignment takes on a whole new angle, Zyron finds himself breaking rules as the plot twists and turns. The woman stuck in the middle is Tessa Lawrence, office secretary and brand-new mom to an amazing newborn. Strong and independent, Tessa is determined to make it on her own. When things get dicey, Zyron enters the picture, and the tension only grows from there. The question is, will they be left standing when the tension finally breaks?
Shayla Black has expertly woven yet another tale of danger, intrigue, love, lust, and deception with twists and turns no one will see coming. A definite go-to author for me, Shayla successfully creates characters that jump off the page and into your heart, your very soul! Believable and infinitely REAL, these characters will speak to you. Each word is a balm to my soul, even as they take me on a roller coaster ride of emotions and excitement.
