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…

My View:

Wound Tight is book 4 in the Made in Jersey series but it’s the first one that is an MM romance. I also think this is the author’s first MM book and I really hope she plans more. It should be noted that this can easily be read as a standalone – I haven’t read the first 3 books and had no trouble at all with the plot and characters.

The saying opposites attract is true in Wound Tight. We have the businessman and the bodyguard who are both dominant in nature and when they get their acts together it’s explosive.

CEO Renner Bastion is aloof, appears cold and is not the flavour of the month with his employees at his factory in New Jersey. The only person who appears unafraid of him and challenges him at every turn is his bodyguard Milo Bautista – the man infuriates and turns Renner on in equal measure. Renner long ago closed his heart off after being burned badly in love and has no intention of ever letting anyone that close again. Milo however didn’t get that memo and he spends his days slowly chipping away.

Milo is an MC that quickly becomes a favourite. He is easy going, he is straight forward and he doesn’t back down. Recently finding himself attracted to another man for the first time what better way to explore these new feelings than speak to his gay boss and signing him up as his wingman. The only problem with this idea is that the pair of them are attracted as hell to each other and it very quickly gets sizzling hot with lots and I mean LOTS of dirty talk. I loved the jealousy, how possessive they got and the aftermath as they try to work out what everyone around them can see clearly.

Renner and Milo were just perfect together and I would highly recommend Wound Tight.
