Synopsis:

A sexy new M/M romance from New York Times Bestselling author Tessa Bailey 

When CEO Renner Bastion walks into a room, everyone keeps their distance. Well, everyone but the sarcastic, tattooed, Boston-bred security guard whose presence has kept Renner in New Jersey longer than intended. As if the unwanted attraction isn’t unsettling enough, Renner finds out his protector isn’t as unavailable as originally thought. 

Milo Bautista just came out to his wealthy, ultra-confident boss, a man he secretly respects and admires…in more ways than he’ll admit. Worldly, experienced Renner would never look in his direction, let alone share some of that confidence he wears like a cloak, so Milo has set his sights on someone else to be his first. 

Until Renner offers him private lessons in seduction...

Review:


Reading the last installment of a series is always a bittersweet moment for me. I have loved each book in the Made in Jersey Series by Tessa Bailey. I will without a doubt miss all my Jersey peeps! Wound Tight, which is the last book of the series got me all kinds of nervous. I waited until the very last moment to read it because of two reasons. The first one was that I’m not good with goodbyes. I wanted this series to continue FOREVER! The second one was that it was going to be the first time I read a M/M romance novel. I’m always nervous/excited about reading a new genre. 

Tessa Bailey is my security blanket in Book Town. No matter the genre she writes, she always makes me feel like I always belong next to the characters that she is so passionately writing about. From the moment she announced that she was writing her first M/M book, I knew that I was going to make Wound Tight my first M/M read. I knew without a doubt that she was going to make me fall in love with this genre just like she did with the all the other books that she wrote. 

In this last installment of the Made in Jersey Series, we follow Renner Bastion and Milo Bautista. Sexy and intense owner of a factory falls for swoony and hot security guard? Yes, please! The passion between Milo and Renner was extremely intoxicating! I started fanning myself every single time they were in the same room. Milo is the sweet/tender kind of hero and Renner is the intense/passionate one. Like any other of Tessa’s couples, Milo and Renner had to overcome some obstacles to be together. This book was extremely hot and I was not surprised one bit! Tessa Bailey knows how to write some pretty wickedly hot steamy scenes! This story was filled many tender, sweet, sexy and hot moments between Renner and Milo. I loved how they grew not only as individuals, but as a couple as well. 

The writing style was phenomenal like always, it was amazing to reunite with the other characters of this series and Tessa Bailey delivered a M/M romance that left me wanting more! This book can be read as a standalone, but Tessa Bailey put enough details about the past characters to make you feel comfortable about reading this book before all the other ones in this series. I will miss them so much! I’m extremely happy about the decision I made and picking Wound Tight as my first M/M romance novel. Tessa Bailey never disappoints! 

Rating:
I give, Wound Tight, 4.5 sexy, tantalizing, double-dirty-talking stars!



About the Author:

Tessa Bailey is originally from Carlsbad, California. The day after high school graduation, she packed her yearbook, ripped jeans and laptop, driving cross-country to New York City in under four days. 

Her most valuable life experiences were learned thereafter while waitressing at K-Dees, a Manhattan pub owned by her uncle. Inside those four walls, she met her husband, best friend and discovered the magic of classic rock, managing to put herself through Kingsborough Community College and the English program at Pace University at the same time. Several stunted attempts to enter the work force as a journalist followed, but romance writing continued to demand her attention. 

She now lives in Long Island, New York with her husband of eight years and four-year-old daughter. Although she is severely sleep-deprived, she is incredibly happy to be living her dream of writing about people falling in love.

Review:


The Pretty Stolen Dolls Series, by Ker Dukey & K. Webster, has been such a dark and twisted reading journey! These two authors wrote a story that kept me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end! I never knew what Benny was going to do next or how twisted things would get. The blurb is what caught my attention when I added this series to my TBR list. It gives you just enough details to make you want to read it without knowing too much about the story. 

Pretty Lost Dolls is the continuation of Jade’s story. What happened to Jade in Pretty Stolen Dolls is heartbreaking. I won’t go into details on what happens in Pretty Lost Dolls, what I will say is that each and every struggle in Jane’s life has made her the warrior that she is today. In this second book, you can see how she stripped away all those layers of pain and turned her life around to reach the light at the end of that dark tunnel. This story is told from different POV’s and I am so happy that the authors gave us those three different POV’s. I really wanted to read Benny’s POV. We get to find out what happened to him as a child. He has such a dark and twisted past. His story left me speechless. The twists and turns in this book are insane!!! Pretty Lost Dolls exceeded all of my expectations. This series will make you feel a hurricane of emotions. 

I’m a big fan of K. Webster so I’m already familiar with her writing style. Ker Dukey is a new-to-me author and one author I will without a doubt follow after reading these books. The writing style was amazing and I could not even tell that two authors wrote the book. This duo wrote a series that I will never forget. The Queens of Darkness have captured my attention. Always expect the unexpected with these two! I really hope that this is not the last time they write a book together. I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I got chills on this reading journey. That ending was WHOAAAAA!!! I need more!!! 

Oh, by the way ... Good luck with getting that doll song out of your head ...

Oh.my.world. 

So Creepy!!! 


Rating:


I give, Pretty Lost Dolls, by Ker Dukey & K. Webster, 5 intense, wicked, enthralling, villains also get to steal the spotlight stars!

About Ker Dukey:


My books all tend to be darker romance, edge of you seat, angst filled reads. My advice to my readers when starting one of my titles...prepare for the unexpected. 

I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters. I wanted to be an actress growing up. 

My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light, some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling. 

When I’m not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I’m a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister. You can find me on Facebook where I love interacting with my readers. 


About K. Webster:


K Webster is the author of dozens of romance books in many different genres including contemporary romance, historical romance, paranormal romance, and erotic romance. When not spending time with her husband of twelve years and two adorable children, she's active on social media connecting with her readers. 

Her other passions besides writing include reading and graphic design. K can always be found in front of her computer chasing her next idea and taking action. She looks forward to the day when she will see one of her titles on the big screen.

My life. 
I fought for my brothers. 
I fought for my family.

Never realizing I might die for them too.

Prologue Excerpt:

Mia Ryder. 
Mia fuckin’ Ryder. 
I sat at the train tracks. Desperately trying not to think about her, but it was easier said than done. She came into my life like a fucking hurricane, destroying everything in her path. A girl from the right side of the tracks, which for some reason I couldn’t ever fucking fathom. 
Falling for a man like me. 
I had made mistakes, too many to fucking count, but life didn’t give you a do-over. All that was left for me to do was to accept them, even fucking embrace them. They became a part of me, as much as every tattoo that covered my body. Every one of them meant something to me. They were my battle scars. Far worse than the ones I got in war. In the eyes of others, they were just colorful, intricate art. 
But to me... 
They were my solace and my pain. 
Nothing had changed since the last time I fucking lived in this godforsaken town. No welcome home party from family or friends, no thanks or parades from the town residents for serving our country. 
Nothing. 
Not one fucking thing. 
Everything I had done, I had done for my family, for the MC, for her… 
I fought for my fucking brothers. 
I fought for my goddamn country. 
I fought for my girl. 
Never realizing… 
I might fucking die for them too. 
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, and all that fucking shit. I once read that every warrior hoped a good death would find him. I always went looking for mine, but not even the Reaper wanted me. I thought fighting for something I believed in would make me a good man. In the end, it never mattered. I would always be on the wrong side of the tracks, and they would always lead me to the wrong station. Changing my people, places, and things throughout the years didn’t help change the outcome of the choices I’d made. Of the things I’d done. 
At the end of the day… 
I was already nailed to the cross. 
I was fucking born on it.
