Peek Inside Wound Tight

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 Milo isn’t as unavailable as originally thought. Worse, his protector is looking for lessons in how to seduce another man. Lessons only Renner can give him.

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...

Each book in the Made in Jersey series is STANDALONE:

* Thrown Down
* Worked Up
* Wound Tight


"Sexy and tender, Wound Tight had me smiling and squirming. Watching these two men open up and fight for their love is a must for any romance fan." USA bestselling author, Megan Erickson

5 Stars: "Can we talk??? Ok, can you listen up? I need to eloquently express to you all how I felt about reading Tessa Bailey's final book in the Made in Jersey series. THIS BOOK WAS BY FAR THE BEST BOOK I'VE READ THIS YEAR! - Sherry, Jezabelle Girl and Friends

5 Stars: "Ms. Bailey has given us AMAZING characters and such BEAUTIFUL happily ever afters with this series...Oh these two just melted my heart. Their slow-burning, but passionate love was a beauty to read about...I could seriously go on and on about these two, but you have to experience this book as soon as you can." - Shayna Ryder, Shayna Renee's Spicy Reads

5 Stars: "I laughed and smiled, I groaned and frowned, and I just generally enjoyed the ever-loving f*** out of this book. It was smart and well-paced. It was a lesson in delicious dirty talk. It had Duke and Sam--my first ever, and favorite, Tessa Bailey couple. But mostly, it had Renner and Milo, sifting through confusion and feelings and hot AF trysts in all kinds of places, which made my heart stutter, my mouth water, my panties melt and rendered my ability to speak (mostly) useless." - Beth Cranford, Give Me Books

4.5 Stars: "I couldn't have asked for a better book for Milo and Renner. Tessa Bailey did one fabulous job. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough, and I had a smile on my face the entire time. I must say, Milo and Renner might be my most favorite couple yet." - Corina, Happily Ever After Romance Book Reviews

5 Stars: "Wound Tight is Tessa Baily's first foray into the world of M/M romance and I'm on my knees, begging it won't be her last!" - Gigi, Gay Book Reviews

Milo Bautista has his boss's number. Renner may appear to be a self-centered asshole, but Milo has been watching him, and there is more to Renner than meets the eye.

Renner Bastion is used to being disliked and left alone, but the sarcastic, tattooed Milo seems to want to take care of him. When Milo ...more

Wound Tight is the 4th book in the M/F series Made in Jersey, but this can be read as a standalone. I haven't read the other books and had no trouble following along.

4 Boss Man Stars

Review @ Vanilla & Spice Books

One of the hottest things is two dominant males finding a way to make room for the other one without subduing their alpha tendencies. In this story this is what we get. I have not read the other Made in Jersey books (whi ...more


Wound Tight is a very sexy read with a true HEA ending, but the writing style is overwrought and heavy on the tortured internal monologues.

The plot is mostly static: Milo, a security guard, takes it upon himself to watch over his stressed out multi-millionaire boss, Renner. Milo has never been ...more

By Wendy December 08, 2016

First of all, let me start by saying, that I haven't read the other book in this series, so it can be read as a stand alone, for those who don't want to read the m/f books.

I enjoyed this one, though there were some things that bothered me a bit.

This story is about Renner, muli-millionair, boss-m ...more

Wound Tight is classic Tessa Bailey--dirty talking and sex fuelled--only this time she's venturing into M/M territory.

"I’m going to enjoy that smart mouth more than I have the right to."

I didn't go into this expecting a profound M/M read: Tessa Bailey has a formula, a successful one an ...more

Spontaneous combustion does exist. Because that’s exactly what happened while reading this book. Oh man oh man oh man. The business man and the security guard GET…IT….AWWN!!!! It’s impossible for Tessa to NOT write dirty words.

Audio – 5 Stars Why is Teddy Hamilton not narrating more M/M??!!!
Story – 4 Hawt AF Stars!!!

The only reason this isn’t 5 stars is because it was too short. The story can be read as a standalone, but I still feel like I missed out on MCs’ first meeting. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I wish the ...more

If I could put this succinctly, it would be this...

Tessa + M/M =

This is Tessa we're talking after all, who in my book, is the queen of dirty talk. Mix in M/M and what you get is this. Simply delicious and panty-melting! Yes, I went there! Like I said, you'r ...more

“You don’t dance.”
“I do now. I do everything for you.” The crowd closed in around them, not even bothering to be subtle about eavesdropping. “I’ll do anything. Just let me keep you.”

I love broody and broken men so of course I loved Renner Bastion. He’s a workaholic and a very sexy boss with his

Tessa Bailey was an author whose Het Romance I enjoyed reading. Alpha men, strong females, snark, and sexy times- what was there not to like? And then I saw she was crossing over into GayRomance- Scoooore! While this one did start a little rough for me, I soon began to jive with the story and go ...more

My favorite smutty author writing a M/M romance? Oh My GawD! Please get ready the fire extinguisher!

Re-read 6/20/18

Third person, Dual-POV, HAE. Can be read as standalone.

In no world did Milo and Renner make sense. Nor did his boss ever look at him with anything other than vexation. It was a dumb infatuation on Milo's end and nothing would ever come of it.

Famous last words.

Milo, an ex-military, ...more
