About Wound Tight
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…
Wound Tight is a story of self-discovery, and it’s the perfect title for two men whose feelings and nerves are coiled so taut that the process of realizing who they truly are, what they want, and what they deserve is lengthy and burdensome.
Renner Bastion is a stoic businessman whose life centers around the bottom line – money and numbers are his first and second loves, never finding time for anything or anyone else until Milo Bautista steamrolls into Renner’s life and asks for his guidance and mentorship when Milo finally realizes his sexual preferences and is now ready to explore that side of himself that he’s suppressed for far too long.
At face value, Renner and Milo are complete opposites. Renner’s a pessimist to Milo’s optimism and Milo actually lives life while it seems that Renner is just trying to stay alive. But despite their differences and Renner’s role as Milo’s boss and now mentor, Milo teaches Renner just as much about himself and his view of the world and Milo offers Renner a chance to do more than simply grow his company…he allows Renner to grow his life in terms of love and acceptance.
Renner and Milo’s story is about taking chances and putting oneself out there in order to experience the life one is meant to live and that lesson is an important one for both of them to learn, and by teaching each other that idea, Renner and Milo give into their feelings for one another despite the risks because the payoff is so much greater than the loss when it comes to finding the one person you can be yourself with and learn what matters most in life.
Overall, I enjoyed Wound Tight and I loved witnessing Renner and Milo’s slow burn relationship advance to scorching. But I have to admit that the ending felt a bit rushed…after everything that the couple went through and the back and forth readers endured, I didn’t feel completely satisfied with the ending. Also, at times, I didn’t really feel like Renner and Milo’s connection/attraction was solid. It might have been due to the third person perspective, but it took me a bit to see how these two fit together when their personalities are so strikingly different. But it’s still a good M/M read that readers of the genre will enjoy.

Tessa Bailey Bio
Tessa Bailey is originally from Carlsbad, California. The day after high school graduation, she packed her yearbook, ripped jeans and laptop, driving cross-country to New York City in under four days.
Her most valuable life experiences were learned thereafter while waitressing at K-Dees, a Manhattan pub owned by her uncle. Inside those four walls, she met her husband, best friend and discovered the magic of classic rock, managing to put herself through Kingsborough Community College and the English program at Pace University at the same time. Several stunted attempts to enter the work force as a journalist followed, but romance writing continued to demand her attention.
She now lives in Long Island, New York with her husband of nine years and four-year-old daughter. Although she is severely sleep-deprived, she is incredibly happy to be living her dream of writing about people falling in love.
