Wicked and True: Zyron & Tessa Part 2 by Shayla Black

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

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?

The Hero: Chase Zyron Garrett (a.k.a. Zy) – he works as a demolitions expert at E.M. Security Management and they have a mole at the company who has been giving information to the cartel. He is told that it has to be either his best friend Trees or the girl he loves but couldn’t have, Tessa. He has been unable to date her due to a no fraternization clause in their contracts at work.

The heroine: Tessa – she is a single mom and an assistant at E.M. Security Management. She is in love with Zy, but is unable to be with him because they both have three year contracts with a no fraternization clause. Zy had offered to take care of her if she quit her job but she wanted to be independent and make her own way. So she had looked for other jobs but couldn’t find one.

The Story: Chase has spent the last weeks doing research into his best friend Trees and had cleared him of being the mole. The bosses now wanted Zy to get closer to Tessa, seduce her and find out if she is the source of the leaks. The bosses will have her sign a new contract with some changes including the removal of the no fraternization rule. So now Zy can finally get close to Tessa like he wanted but will be spying on her while doing it. Not the best way to start a relationship.

This book was told in dual points of view via solo narration. Like Wicked as Lies this one was narrated by Troy Duran who always does a terrific job. He does a great romantic Hero with his deep and sultry voice and he has a passable woman voice as well, which doesn’t get on my nerves like when some men to a woman’s voice.

The storyline about the mole within the company was a good one and it took some great twists and turns along the way. The romance was great, there were some super steamy scenes and a whole lot of suspense. I don’t want to give anything more away, so I will only say that this book was better than the first part of Zy and Tessa’s story.
