Series: Wicked and True- this is book 2 of a duet. Must read book one.

What an intense read!  Wicked and True is book 2 in Zyon and Tessa’s story.  This book picks up right where book one leaves off.  This is an emotional ride of a book.  There is intensity, passion and uncertainty.  Zy is put in one of the hardest positions to be in.  He must prove his loyalty to his mission, his friend and the love of his life, Tessa.  One of them is doing something that is causing harm to his co-workers. 
The emotions in this book are all over the place. The way in which the story unfolds you can not put it down until you know everything and know that all involved are safe.  The story is beautiful and extreme, this is the magic you expect when reading a story by Shayla Black.   Her stories have a balance of sexy and desire for justice.  

Zy and Tessa might be some of my favorite characters she has written.  I was rooting for them the whole time!  When secrets are revealed can they overcome and love win? I did have some big moments of being angry at both Zy and Tessa!  They really gave me a run for my money on this one. 

I typically don’t get excited for Romantic Suspense but when Black writes a story her characters and the passion are bigger than the problems. These stories are about overcoming whatever obstacle is in your way to get to the Love of your life!  The intrigue and the suspense are such an intercool part of the romance that it only adds to the desire and attraction between the characters.
