About this ebook

In this seductive new novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Falling in Deeper, mixing business with pleasure can be a dangerous proposition...
Jolie Quinn is a woman in charge. Her no-nonsense attitude has made her a rising star in the fashion world and her brand a household name among the Dallas elite. Nothing will stop her from achieving her goals—not even the gorgeous British security contractor who seems just as interested in seeing her personal assets as he is in protecting her professional ones.
After a tragedy left him broken, Heath Powell made a rule of staying unattached. But Jolie challenges him in a way he can’t ignore, and he isn’t used to backing down from a confrontation—especially when the reward for winning could feel so good. As passion blazes between them, the stubborn, confident beauty arouses more than his desire. She touches his heart.
When a mysterious enemy threatens Jolie and her company, Heath is the only person Jolie can trust to help. But working with him to save her business might put her dangerously at risk of falling in love...

This review was written by Marie for a guest review post on Ever After Book Reviews blog: Rating: 4.5 Stars Yes, yes, and yes! Ms. Black has done it again with the next book in the Wicked Lovers series. It’s full of intrigue, snarky humor, romance, and of course, extremely scorching sex. Holding on Tighter revs up from the very beginning and just doesn’t let go. It’s a wild and thrilling ride chocked full of action and seriously intense chemistry between our hero and heroine, Heath and Jolie. Heath is the embodiment of a dominant male. He’s mysterious, sexy, commanding and over-the-top passionate. His attraction to Jolie is apparent from the get-go, and the way he treats her is enough to make any woman swoon. Of course, him being SO sexy helps tremendously, too. Jolie, on the other hand, is a spitfire. She’s confident, independent, and her resistance brings out the charm in Heath. The story itself is brilliantly written, with Shayla Black’s signature touch. It’s an addicting, sexy romance that’s guaranteed to please. ***I read and reviewed a paperback copy of the book offered to the blog by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All conclusions reached are my own***

About the author

Shayla Black is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of more than forty novels, including the Wicked Lovers series (Wicked for You, His to Take) and, with Lexi Blake, the Perfect Gentlemen series (Big Easy Temptation, Seduction in Session, Scandal Never Sleeps). For over fifteen years, she’s written contemporary, erotic, paranormal, and historical romances via traditional, independent, foreign, and audio publishers.

Raised as an only child, Shayla occupied herself with lots of daydreaming, much to the chagrin of her teachers. In college, she found her love for reading and realized that she could have a career publishing the stories spinning in her imagination. Though she graduated with a degree in marketing/advertising and embarked on a stint in corporate America to pay the bills, her heart has always been with her characters. She’s thrilled that she has been living her dream as a full-time author for the past seven years.
Shayla currently lives in North Texas with her wonderfully supportive husband, her teenage daughter, and a very spoiled cat. In her “free” time, she enjoys reality TV, reading, and listening to an eclectic blend of music.
