Iron Paradox by Zana King

Iron Paradox by Zana King

This is Iron Fist Series book #2 and the parallel twin to Wicked Inked Series book #2: Wicked Triplicity by Tanya Sands.

Iron Fist is a heavy metal band comprised of life long friends. All grew up with haunted pasts and this will be one of the catalysts that binds them together; not just emotionally, or mentally, but physically as well.

Due to unfortunate circumstances the band is in need of a new bus driver; cue Cyndra. She’s a short spit fire of a woman who grew up around these busses. She knows how to fix, maintain, and most importantly drive them.

When Zaire, the bassist for the band, sees Cyndra he’s head over heels in lust with her. He knows he wants to get to know her better and understands it’s going to be an uphill battle. Only it’s worse than he thought with the band keeping major secrets and making Cyndra feel less than, left out, not wanted.

Then something horrible happens and the fate of the band, Zaire and Cyndra’s relationship, and the future over all, are resting on the blade of a knife. Nobody knowing which way the winds will blow.

Wicked Triplicity by Tanya Sands

Wicked Triplicity by Tanya Sands

This book intermingles with book #2 in the Iron Fist Series by Zana King: Iron Paradox.

The Wicked Inked crew are a tight knit crew. They work together and play together. Often times their play times involve the popular heavy metal band Iron Fist.

Xandra, Cooper, and Reed have known each other for years. First as friends, then co-workers, and then even more intimately as play mates during the infamous Iron Fist parties. They’ve all had a crush on the other, but a menage relationship is hardly going to be something that is accepted.

With each of them getting closer, more intimate with the other, they each decide that it’s time to remove skeletons from their closets. Be open. Be honest. Only it’s not as freeing as it’s supposed to be and leaves one or more of them traumatized from the overflow of information.

So the age old question remains….Does love really conquer all?
