The W.I.L.D. Boys are at it again! Angel Payne's hotter-than-hot series continues with Zeke and Rayna's story...
Between a rock and a hard place.
To Sergeant Zeke Hayes, the expression has always been a non-factor. There's never been a situation he can't blast, punch, or smart-ass his way out of, which makes him the perfect fit for his Special Forces battalion--and a natural-born Dominant who's made a lot of submissives happy from Mt. Rainier to Vancouver. That all changes when Rayna Chestain enters his world.
From the moment Z snatches Rayna from the lair of a South Asian slave trafficker, his inner grizzly roars to life. This is a huge damn problem, because Z isn't wired to be a one-woman man. Growing up an orphan on the streets of Seattle has taught him that beyond a few hours in a dungeon, trust means disappointment and love leads to agony. But here he is, in the remote wilderness escape he'd promised not to share with anyone, harboring Rayna from a fiend who now wants his pound of revenge flesh from her.
A hard place...
Sheltering Rayna? Z's never done anything more right in his life. But wanting her? Dreaming of her beneath him, surrendering to his passion and domination? It's the most forbidden fruit he can crave...and the only thing he can't stop thinking about.
A new beginning?
This is a dead-end canyon that no rifle, bomb or sweet talk will let Zeke escape from. The only way out is to confront the reality of what Rayna has done to him...the mountain she's moved in his intractable heart.

Zeke is so flawed. He’s convinced he can’t be the man Rayna needs. When their friendship takes a turn from the platonic, he makes it clear to Rayna he’s not the kind of guy to make a life with. But who’s he really trying to convince? Rayne will take what she can get initially but soon realizes she’s too in love with Z to just be friends or friends with benefits. She also finds her submissive side really enjoys the right man taking charge. While they’re trying to figure out their relationship, the brother of the devil who kidnapped Rayna and Sage West is still scheming to get her back to sell her as a sex slave. Hot, sexy, kinky, romantic and thrilling – this book is everything you expect from Payne!

Handcuffed by Her Hero is another amazing read by Angel Payne. I loved the first installment of the W.I.L.D Boys series - book two does not disappoint! Angel weaves a story of intrigue, deception, and passion that will have you hooked. I couldn't put it down! Should I mention that Zeke is a smokin' hot hero that will leave you drooling and forgetting your name? Oh, yeah, he's that good! Pick it up. Stay up past your bedtime. Fall in love with Zeke and Rayna!
BDSM, Intrigue and Suspense You will not be disappointed with this second book in the W.I.L.D. series. You get caught up in the emotional turmoil that Rayna Chestain is trying to overcome from her captivity in the first book, SAVED BY HIS SUBMISSIVE. She is struggling to get her life back. She is having intense nightmares that have her brothers very worried about her. I loved that even as she struggles through her emotional pain, she is still strong and sassy! Zeke Hayes (Master Z) is our hot and hunky, Special Forces, alpha male. *Surprise* He has commitment issues. Their friendship is the one solid thing she relies on to help her work through her demons. When that friendship evolves into something much more, Zeke tries very hard to push her away. He needs control and he doesn’t think Rayna can handle his needs. He is falling for her but is fighting it with everything in him. Unfortunately, it’s at Rayna’s expense and he is constantly sending her mixed signals. Circumstances send them into hiding with Zeke trying to protect Rayna from Mua once again. The story line is a little far-fetched, but isn’t that why we read, to get lost in a book, to escape reality? It is emotional, suspenseful and sexy. “He kissed her softly again before whispering, “I’m going to care for you and cherish you, honey. I’m going to spoil you and pleasure you. I’m going to give you everything you want, but not before you get what you need. And yeah… I’m going to dominate you in every way you’ll let me.” Angel Payne certainly knows how to make us swoon!
Angel Payne hits another one out of the park in Handcuffed by Her Hero, the second novel in the WILD Boys of the Special Forces. If you enjoyed Garret and Sage’s story, you’ll be completely entranced by Zeke Hayes and Rayna Chestain’s story. Even if you haven’t read the first book in this series, I don’t think it will be a problem because Payne does a masterful job of providing just enough information to fill in the gaps but not so much that you can’t go back and read the first book. Zeke is a good-looking but hardened man after years of fighting in the Special Forces. He needs control to balance himself, and being a Master at his local club fills this need. Zeke’s heart has finally found the one for him, Rayna, but his head has other ideas. Believing he will destroy Rayna if he introduces her to his world of Dominance and submission, Zeke faces an internal struggle with between his heart and his head, making him a compelling character. Having survived being kidnapped by human traffickers, Rayna deals with the aftermath of her tragic ordeal, and Zeke’s friendship has helped. She wants to be more than just friends with Zeke. As they begin to experiment with D/s play, Rayna is shocked to discover that submission is something she needs. Their intimate D/s scenes are explicit and hot enough to torch your e-reader. Despite enjoying Rayna’s submission, Zeke decides to sever their relationship. Even though Rayna is a submissive in the bedroom, she is a strong and compassionate woman who stands up to Zeke, giving him plenty to think about, which I just love about her character. When Zeke finally listens to his heart instead of his head, it’s a beautiful thing to see. With dynamic characters, sizzling chemistry, and pulse-pounding plot twists, Handcuffed by Her Hero is a riveting read that will certainly please readers of the genre.
