BOOK SYNOPSIS:
A friend’s duty.

Tyler Murphy was an LAPD detective, single and happy—until a near-fatal tragedy crippled his friend, fellow detective Eric Catalano. While he supported Eric, he also became a shoulder for Eric’s wife, Delaney, to cry on. But with one naughty suggestion from Eric, a drunken night with Delaney spilled into erotic abandon. Before it was over Tyler saw his best friend’s wife as a woman and yearned for more. When Eric struggled to deal with the aftermath, Delaney begged Tyler to leave. Crushed, he fled to Louisiana, hoping to escape his longing for the one woman he could never have again…and unaware of what he’d left behind.

A lover’s desire.

After two years of living with regret, Tyler finds Delaney on his doorstep, her husband having abandoned her long ago. She’s protecting a shocking secret and desperately needs refuge from a killer determined to see her dead. As they fight to stay alive and catch the stalker, they struggle to resolve the guilt of their past pleasures. But they can’t deny that what was once a spark is now a flame burning out of control. To possess Delaney — body and soul — Tyler must heal her pain and thwart the evil that’s a mere breath behind her

REVIEW:

Opening Line:
“Tyler, are you aware that all the girls at Sexy Sirens have nick named you Cockzilla?”

Oh what can I say about the very naughty Tyler Murphy.  Tyler is every girls dreams and their worst nightmare all rolled into one.  Tyler, is a sex god but not  willing to comment to any one. So he spends countless nights on random hook ups, that mean nothing but a good time.  But he has never really got to the root of his problems, that is until an unexpected visitor shows up at his door and everything in Tyler’s life changes.

Delaney, is one tough cookie, but not tough enough to keep survive all these death threat.  Delaney has finally reached the end of her rope and has to seek out the help of the one person she never thought she would have to ask help from.  The one person that will turn her life upside down again.  The one person that can break her heart, but it will be worth it just to keep her son safe.  Even if that means losing her heart again.

I LOVED!!!!  LOVED!!!!! LOVED!!!!! this story.  I have to say a HUGE thank you to Shayla & her assistant Christie for allowing me to read this story.  I loved everything about it.  Tyler is such a tough guy.  He acts like he has no feeling, no emotions, nothing fazes him.  But in reality he is a very sensitive, loving, caring and would die for the ones he hold close.  Oh and Tyler is wicked talented in bed, he didn’t get the name Cockzilla for nothing.  *wiggles eyebrows*

Delaney, I really liked her character.  She is not overly tough or a pushover.  She has a great balance of both.  She really makes Tyler work hard for her and he does. These two are such a fun couple to watch.  Now while their story may have started a little unconventionality the love that these two share is unbreakable.

Shayla has written another WONDERFUL story.  If you have read any of Shayla’s other Wicked Lovers book you know just how wicked her writing is.  Well Tyler has some tricks up his sleeves.  Hint: It has to do with a wall.

I would highly, highly recommend this series to anyone (unless you are fate at heart).   If you have not started this series you really need too. Each book can be read as a stand alone.  But reading from the beginning will give you a better understand of all the characters.  Which Shayla does a great job of bring back in each book.

Again HUGE thank you to Shayla & Christie for letting me read and review.  And now I am dying for Xander’s book…This boy is going to be great fun to read.
