The Major’s Welcome Home

The Major’s Welcome Home

by Tessa Bailey

40799981Description: When Kenna Sutton is tasked with driving home newly returned Beck “True Blue” Collier, she expects the strategic Army mastermind to be a pasty number cruncher. Never at a loss for words, Kenna is nonetheless rendered speechless by the gorgeous, hard-bodied and utterly inexperienced Army Major that lands in her passenger seat. Outraged by Beck’s lack of a welcome home after seven long years overseas, Kenna takes matters into her own hands, giving Beck something he’s only ever fantasized about in his bunk.

Beck has never shied away from a test of will and Kenna gives new meaning to the word challenge. One problem? Kenna’s father is the Lieutenant General presenting Beck with a Silver Star and Beck is determined to treat Kenna with the respect she deserves. Kenna has other ideas, however, tempting Beck’s resolve at every turn. But how long can one lonely, starving man hope to resist the woman he craves?

**The Major’s Welcome Home originally appeared in the OFF BASE anthology under the title OFF BASE: BECK AND KENNA**

Captivated_Teaser5

Blurb:

Secret aspiring comedian Autumn Reynolds is a girl gone…not wild exactly. More like lazy. Since her boyfriend abandoned her in New York City for a bunch of improv groupies she’s had two priorities; sucking the nitrous out of whipped cream cans and making sex comics about her mysterious landlord.

Blake hates people—and sunlight—with good reason. Imagine his surprise when he finds himself lusting after his upstairs tenant, a sunny, Australian people pleaser down on her luck. Turns out his ability to terrify with a single scowl comes with an advantage. Autumn seems to like it. A lot. As evidenced by the prisoner-captive comic Blake was never meant to see.

As they embark on a three-date arrangement the rules are clear; filthy, ground breaking sex, no feelings or commitment required. When chemistry is this strong, though, attachment follows. As Blake and Autumn attempt to negotiate their New York romance, their prior histories and secret dreams come to the foreground. How long can these polar opposites remain Captivated, when all signs point to disaster?

Captivated_Teaser1

Excerpt:

 

“Ms. Reynolds, you were telling me why you chose to draw me into your sex-picture.”

Several beats passed as her gaze dipped to his bare chest and traveled the length of him, top to bottom, side to side. “I really hope you won’t be offended, but you’re rather large and spectacularly intimidating and I’ve always had a-a…wish.” Her chest rose and plummeted, her words puffing out like little gusts. “A fantasy, really. To be jailed. Kept prisoner. Your likeness is sort of reminiscent of someone who could—not would, just could—do that to me.”

The blood running through his body rose a thousand degrees in temperature. “It turns you on. The idea of me holding you captive.”

She crossed her arms over her chest, but not before he caught sight of her stiff nipples poking through her t-shirt. “I guess you could say that. But—”

“Do we fuck, Ms. Reynolds? In that little head of yours?”

A squeak left Autumn and he watched as her thighs pressed together. “Um, maybe? I mean yes. Regularly, I’m afraid.”

Unbelievable. They’d barely exchanged a word since she moved in, yet they’d been mentally screwing each other’s brains out from two floors away. “Do you still want to know the face I made when I saw the drawing?”

“No. I mean yes. I mean…it was a good face, right?”

Blake advanced on her, cataloguing everything. The way she backed up, then steeled her spine and attempted to hold her ground. The way she shivered and glanced at the door. Her very real apprehension forced him to make a decision. “Go home.”

Her expression was the physical embodiment of a record scratch. “Wait. What?”

“Go home, Fun-Size.” He took the drawing out of his pocket and offered it to her. “I don’t hold scared little girls prisoner, even if I look like I do.”

Disturbing His Peace

Disturbing His Peace

by Tessa Bailey

imagesDescription: 

She’s got probable cause to make her move . . .

Danika Silva can’t stand Lt. Greer Burns. Her roommate’s older brother may be sexy as hell, but he’s also a cold, unfeeling robot. She just wants to graduate and forget about her scowling superior. But when a dangerous mistake lands Danika on probation—under Greer’s watch—she’s forced to interact with the big, hulking jerk. Call him daily to check in? Done. Ride shotgun in his cruiser every night? Done. Try not to climb into his giant, muscular lap and kiss him? Umm…

Greer doesn’t let anythingor anyone—distract him from the job. Except lately, all he can think about is Danika. He’s wanted the beautiful, cocky recruit since the moment he saw her. But she’s reckless and unpredictable, and Greer is painfully aware of what can happen when an officer doesn’t follow the rules. Probation seemed like a good idea, but now Danika’s scent is in his car and he’s replayed her voicemails twenty times. Christ, he’s a goner.

Danika’s melting Greer’s stone-cold exterior one ride-along at a time. Being together could have serious consequences… but breaking a few rules never hurt anybody, right?

Review:

In case you haven’t been following my reviews, I adore Tessa Bailey. She’s absolutely one of the best romance writers I’ve read and I love everything she writes! She’s also the queen of dirty talking heroes and Greer is my new favorite! Side note, it’s weird to be typing “Greer” and referring to the hero. I just read American King by Sierra Simone and Greer was the heroine’s name.  Disturbing His Peace is the last book in Tessa’s The Academy Series which follows three friends as they finish the NYPD police academy. This book has one of my favorite plots, the teacher and the student. Or in this case, the serious instructor and the vivacious future cop!

Like in all of Tessa’s books, the chemistry between the main characters is scorching! Greer and Danika have been circling each other since the first book and it was so satisfying when they gave into their attraction! What I loved most about this story is how relatable Danika is. She ends up assuming the problems of her family and being the person that handles everything. Even when she makes mistakes, some of which cause problems in her relationship with Greer, they are relatable and mistakes that I would make myself. She is a competent and self-assured woman and yet can still be vulnerable with Greer.

Greer. Oh, Greer. You’re not Elijah level in my list of Tessa dream heroes but you’re pretty damn close. What can I say, I have a huge soft spot for the silent and solemn heroes. He fights his attraction to Danika so hard and yes, is an ass at times. But he totally makes up for it by loving and supporting her. His biggest fear is losing those close to him and Danika being a cop terrifies him. However, he still supports her dream and wants her to be the best cop possible. Behind his brooding demeanor is a dirty talking, ass-slapping hero and Danika is his perfect fit. Plus, who can’t help but love a cop who organized a book club for officers in therapy?

I’m sad that this series ended but Danika and Greer’s story was the perfect finish. I loved watching the sparks fly between them in the early books and when they finally got together, it was just so satisfying!

Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance

Release Date: March 26, 2018

Blurb

This unlikely getaway driver never expected to help the mayor escape…

After a six-year absence, Addison Potts is back in Charleston to stir things up. And what better place to make her villainous return than her estranged cousin’s wedding? Only, the nuptials hit a snag when the bride doesn’t show, leaving Addison to play getaway driver for the jilted groom. A groom whose heartbreaking smile and deep, southern drawl she should not be noticing…

Elijah Montgomery DuPont is the future mayor of Charleston. From his military career to city hall, every detail of his life has been meticulously planned. Until now. His only respite from life’s sudden upheaval is Addison, his new, improbable best friend. She makes him happy. Grounds him. And public disapproval be damned, he’s not willing to give her up. But with an election on the line and public pressure rising, Addison and the cruel hand of fate—might not give him a choice.

Excerpt

“Well…” I stop to clear the rasp from my voice. “If there’s no picture of us together, we should take one.”

“Good idea.” He crooks his finger at me, unwittingly sealing his fate. “Come here.”

I put my jacket on downstairs when I thought we were leaving, but I take it off now, simply letting it fall. “I want you in the mayor’s chair.”

His eyes stray to my pooled jacket, then tick to mine. “You what?”

“In the picture. I want you sitting in the chair.”

“Oh. Right.” He slides out the brown leather, high-back executive chair and drops
into it. “What about you?”

My bravery slips. Whose wouldn’t? This powerful, gorgeous man sits before me, outlined by the city he’s been elected to run. His thighs are thicker than my waist, his sleeves caught up around his elbows. A strong man. A man of conviction who will not be seduced unless he really wants to be.

Or is driven out of his mind and can’t resist.

Before I can second-guess myself, I move between his outstretched thighs and ease myself onto his lap. “Addison.”

I send him an innocent look over my shoulder. “Yes, Captain?”

His chest rises and falls. Once. Twice. “Take the picture.”

The fact that I’m playing with fire stops psyching me out…and begins to excite me. Maybe it’s the gravel in his tone…or the big fists that come to rest on the desk. No…it’s definitely the way he presses his nose to my hair and inhales. As if I’m not going to notice. But I do. I do and it makes me braver. Makes me throb between my legs.

“The picture, Addison.”

“Sorry.” I lean across the desk where I set my purse, taking my time digging through to find my cell before pulling it out, searching for the camera app. All the while, his muscles bunch beneath me, harder and harder…and that’s when I feel it. His erection lifts under my backside, so thick and glorious, I bite my lip to stop from crying out. I want to, though. I want to sob at the proof that he’s physically attracted to me and at least I have that much.

My hands are shaking as I lift the camera, my instincts screaming at me to grind down. Elijah’s breath is pelting the back of my neck. Other than that he’s completely still, though. But when I flip the camera around to selfie mode and get my first look at his face, there isn’t a jury on the planet that would rule him unaffected. His eyes are closed, nostrils flared, mouth open against my hair.


“You’ve got five seconds,” he says. “Take it, or—”

“Or what?”


Elijah stands up and takes me with him, my ass pressed to his lap, feet
dangling off the ground. As if I weigh nothing more than a child. It only lasts
for a couple mind-blowing seconds, though, before he settles me on the ground
behind his desk. His heat begins to leave me and I sense my chance slipping
away, so I twist around to face him. Still mere inches away from me, he pauses
with his head tipped forward, hands flexing at his sides. “We could be more
than friends.” After easing myself backwards onto the desk, I snag his necktie
and tug him closer, guiding his hips between my open thighs. “Just for
tonight.”

His laugh is more like a rough expulsion of air, the scent of bourbon hitting me. “That’s not how things work,” he says, his palms scraping up my thighs, twisting in the hem of my dress. “Goddammit, Addison. You’re not supposed to tempt me like this.”

Tempted. He’s tempted. My blood cells crash together.

“I don’t always do what I’m supposed to,” I murmur, leaning up to bring our mouths close, a breath separating them. “If I wasn’t your friend, would you kiss me right now?”

His eyes fasten on my mouth, seeming darker than usual. Predatory. “You felt what you did to my cock, sugar. You know the answer to that.”

Review:

Oh my gosh. Coming up with the right words to describe my love for this book is so difficult. The amazing Tessa Bailey has been hinting about her bubble-butt hero on her Facebook group for months and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on him! I got an “early” copy of this book at Apollycon this weekend and had to stop myself multiple times from reading it right away. I knew if I opened the book, I won’t stop until I finished and I had Apollycon events to go to. However, once I got home and settled, I grabbed Getaway Girl and a cup of tea and basically didn’t get off my couch until I finished it. And I adored every minute of the read. Addison and Elijah are my new favorite characters. I cannot express how much I love them.

Okay, gushing over. Now I’ll focus on why this book is my top of 2018 already. This is a friends to lovers romance. Addison crashes her cousin’s wedding to Elijah in time to see him being left at the altar. She offers him a ride and thus becomes the “Getaway Girl”. To be honest, I was a little concerned this book would turn into a “run away from your problems road-trip” which sometimes can annoy me. However, to my delight, Elijah basically crashes at Addison’s place for a night and then goes back to face his new reality. But with a new friendship. Addison, who is in Charleston after her grandma’s death, has a harsh family history and reputation hanging over her head. Elijah, in contrast, is the darling of Charleston and is running for mayor. Addison becomes his escape from life in the public eye and Elijah becomes her support for changes she makes in her life. Both fight their attraction to each other to avoid ruining their friendship. But when they do give in, wow, do sparks fly. Tessa Bailey has always been the absolute queen of dirty-talking heroes. And Elijah does his fair share of dirty-talking. However, it’s Addison who really has the hot mouth. And her appreciation of Elijah’s thick bubble-butt, which he is self-conscious about, is just perfect. I don’t blame him for being self-conscious, I would be too if my butt had it’s own Twitter! As you can see, Tessa interjects humor into the sensuality of this story.

There were moments in this book that made me cry. There were moments that made me stop and screenshot parts to Tessa’s Facebook group because I wanted to share the humor. When I finished the book, I honestly hugged it to my chest. And then I went and bought a copy for my friend’s birthday so she can share in its total awesomeness.  This book just had so much heart and heat. It truly touched me and I can not share enough how much I loved it. If Getaway Girl is the only romance novel I read for the rest of my life, I would die happy. Stop everything and read it now!

Received a free copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.

He wants her soul. Too bad she already sold it.

Family is everything to gambling den darling, Teresa Valentini. Blood comes first, especially before men. So when her brother lands himself in hot water, she’s willing to do whatever it takes to save him. And showing up topless in her unwitting savior’s motel room is turning out to be the furthest thing from a hardship…

Will Caruso is the bad boy of New York’s financial scene…and he just found out the very thing that drives his success is a damn lie. Now, he’s exchanged his high-stress life for the open road, no one but his Great Dane…and half a million Instagram followers to keep him company. When a mysterious beauty arrives, her secrecy prods his suspicions, even while she tempts his lust to the breaking point.

 

Teresa met Will under false pretenses, but the bond consuming them is real. They’re strong enough to overcome a little betrayal…aren’t they?

teaser 1

Excerpt: 

“Here we are.”

My face heats over being caught even imagining such things. We’re at my door and I have no recollection of entering the motel. Come on, Teresa. Stop letting this guy get to you so bad. “Right.” I fish for the key card in my pocket, but cease all movement when Will brushes his fingertips down my arm, then trails them back up. Slow. And all the while, he invades my space, eliminating inches at such a leisurely pace that I’m panting by the time our mouths are a breath apart.

“What are you going to do when I close this door behind you, Teresa?” He grazes my bottom lip with his teeth, making me gasp. “You going to get undressed in front of the air conditioner, thinking it might cool you down after teasing my cock for over an hour in the bar? It won’t. I give you five minutes before you’re face down in bed, riding your own fingers.”

My knees threaten to buckle. “That’s my business.”

“Make it mine.”

Mayday. Mayday. “Will—”

He stops my admonishment with a drugging kiss, his tongue stroking in and out of my mouth. His hands grip my elbows, lifting me up on my toes in desperate degrees, meshing our bodies, our lips, until I’m moaning, letting him have rough intercourse with my mouth. Just when I’m on the verge of giving in and begging him to take me up against the door, he steps back, eyes glittering, wiping away the moisture on his mouth with a wrist swipe. “I’ll be out on the balcony. If you’re going to finger yourself in my honor, I want to listen.”

Review: 

Wow, Tessa Bailey has always written steamy, sexy romances with dirty talking heroes but Follow and it’s hero, Will, makes everything she wrote before look like Puritan romances. The chemistry between Will and Theresa is so scorching that even me, with absolutely no romance reading shame, blushed while reading it doing my lunch break. In addition to the pure sensuality of this book, the overall plot focused on Theresa and Will. She is sent by Will’s criminal father to convince Will to come home. Will, on the other hand, is traveling around the country with his sick dog, giving him one last adventure. Cue tears over the adorableness! As can be expected Theresa quickly and totally falls for the sexy, dirty-talking Will and many steamy shenanigans and role-playing scenes occur. In addition to the sexy-times, this books has adorable dog/owners moments, road-trip adventures, and moments of angst. Over a short time, Will and Theresa really bond and the connection between them is able to withstand the opposing outside forces. I one hundred percent recommend this book for a steamy introduction to the amazing Tessa Bailey!
