Mine to Hold- Shayla Black (book 6)

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 lean 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…

Love this series!! We met Tyler a few books back and I loved his character from day one. An ex-cop from L.A., he now works as a bouncer for Alyssa at her strip club. He takes full advantage of his position and screws around with all the strippers. A confirmed bachelor, Tyler has only really loved one woman. Even though he thought he was in love with Alyssa he was covering his feelings for someone else, Delaney. Delaney was Eric's wife, Eric is his ex best friend & partner. Two years prior while they all lived in L.A., Eric was shot on duty and ended up in a wheelchair. For months Delaney took care of his every need, with no one looking out for hers. Sitting around drinking one long Memorial Day weekend, Eric asked Tyler to "fuck" his wife while he watched. Yep, seriously!  Tyler had been in love with her forever in his eyes so Eric barely had to talk him into it. Eric explained that Del could not orgasm through sex but Tyler set out to prove him wrong and gave her 5 mind-blowing orgasms while Eric watched. It didn't take long for Eric to sober up and realize his mistake, he threw Tyler out and while Del tried to make their marriage work once she found out she was pregnant with Tyler's child Eric threw her out for good.  Now two years later, Del shows up on Tyler's door with his son who looks exactly like him. It was a great part of the book to read about Tyler going from "Cockzilla" as the strippers called him to a daddy in a matter of seconds. One look into his son's eyes and he was hooked. With Del on the run from a corrupt ADA in L.A. she needs Tyler's help, but she only wants him to take care of Seth while she goes back to L.A. to write her article. Once Tyler and the other men (Deke & Jack) hear what she is running from and who is trying to kill her they are in it until the end. Tyler saves her while trying to capture the heart of that one woman that got away and he is not going to let her get away from him again. He wants it all with her and Seth, the family, the marriage and more kids since he missed out on everything with her pregnancy he is ready for her to do it all again so he can be there for it all.  I have loved this series from book one and it is really hard to pick a favorite but this one is way up at the top of the list right now. There were a few moments that I wanted to reach into my Kindle and slap Delaney around but she finally opened her eyes to see what she could have in her life if she just gave him a chance.  But seriously, I would have a little trouble trusting a man other woman named "Cockzilla" too- lol
My Rating: 4.5   Wendy
