Make Me by Tessa Bailey 99 cents!
Make Me: A Broke and Beautiful Novel - Tessa Bailey

Construction worker Russell Hart has been head-over-work boots for Abby Sullivan since the moment he laid eyes on her. But he knows a classy, uptown virgin like her could never be truly happy with a rough, blue-collar guy like him. If only she'd stop treating him like her personal hero—a role he craves more than oxygen—maybe he could accept it.

 

With the future of her family's hedge fund on her shoulders, Abby barely has time to sleep, let alone find love. And her best friend Russell acting like a sexy, overprotective hulk any time their Super Group goes out in public definitely isn't helping her single status. But after a near-tragedy lands Russell in her bed for the night, Abby's suddenly fantasizing about what he looks like shirtless. Chest hair and tattoos—who knew?

 

As Russell struggles to keep Abby at a safe distance, she begins to see through his tough-talking exterior—and acknowledge her own feelings. Now she's ready to turn the friend-zone into foreplay…and make him lose control.

Blog Tour - Indecent Exposure
 

 

Is there a problem, Officer?

 

Jack Garrett isn’t a police officer yet, but there’s already an emergency. His new firearms instructor—the one who just dropped every jaw in the academy gym—is the same sexy Irish stranger Jack locked lips with last night. The Olympic gold medalist and expert markswoman is now officially off-limits, but Jack’s never cared much for rules . . .

 

Katie McCoy’s been cooped up in a shooting range for too long. A wild love affair is just what she needs to let loose, though she never imagined it would be with her smokin’ hot trainee. She cannot get involved with Jack—but a quick fling? Perfect. Falling hard for a charismatic recruit with an equal amount of sex appeal and secrets? Bloody stupid.

 

Jack’s charmed the pants off plenty of women (literally), yet few have ever looked beyond his perfect surface. Until Katie. He’ll do anything to keep her in his life . . . except tell her about his past. But a tiny lie of omission never hurt anyone, right?

About Tessa Bailey:

 

Tessa Bailey is originally from Carlsbad, California. The day after high school graduation, she packed her yearbook, ripped jeans, and laptop, and drove cross-country to New York City in under four days. Her most valuable life experiences were learned thereafter while waitressing at K-Dees, a Manhattan pub owned by her uncle. Inside those four walls, she met her husband, best friend, and discovered the magic of classic rock, managing to put herself through Kingsborough Community College and the English program at Pace University at the same time. Several stunted attempts to enter the work force as a journalist followed, but romance writing continued to demand her attention. She now lives in Long Island, New York with her husband and daughter. Although she is severely sleep-deprived, she is incredibly happy to be living her dream of writing about people falling in love.

Indecent Exposure
Indecent Exposure - Tessa Bailey Indecent Exposure - Tessa Bailey


Indecent Exposure is the quintessential story of the good girl and the bad boy. Katie is a gold medal Olympian, expert marksman, and virgin. Jack is a day drinker who grew up in a brothel and is only in the police academy so he can help keep his mom from having to go back to the brothel. He doesn't care about being good at his job. Really, he doesn't care about anything except sex.

You see the utter sadness in Jack's life pretty quick. I mean, growing up in the brothel is tragic, but even as an adult, he is still stifled by his past. Drinking to get through the day, sleeping around, and generally not caring about anything, his life is nothing anyone would want. He has a bit of a roguish charm though that makes everyone, including Katie, gravitate to him.

Katie might possibly be one of my favorite heroines. She is so very accessible, but yet she has achieved more than 99% of the population! However, you see this girl who achieved a dream she didn't have and mourns the loss of the dream she did. Katie doesn't hide behind coquettish flirting and coyness. She has unique interests and embraces them with a boldness that is admirable. Honestly, she is just incredibly winsome!

The beauty of the story is that I WANTED Jack to be worthy of Katie. Was I worried he wouldn't be? Yep. I was constantly waiting for him to let her down, because that is what HE expected of himself. Their relationship has hurdles: she is his instructor, she lives in another country, and she is only in New York for 2 weeks. So, the clock is ticking on their relationship from the beginning and that added some distress for me because I wanted these two to be happy!

Indecent Exposure provides the very sexy interactions fans of Bailey's writing expect. The real joy of the book, for me, was in the  intricate characters that stole my heart.

 
  • POV: dual 1st
  • Tears: no
  • Trope: opposites attract
  • Triggers: none
  • Series/Standalone: stand alone within an interconnected series (you can read these out of order and not feel like you missed anything!)
  • Cliffhanger: no
  • HEA: yes




Cuffed by K. Bromberg, Follow Me Back by AL Jackson, So Over You by Kate Meader...then you will probably like Indecent Exposure!

good book and characters
Too Hard to Forget - Tessa Bailey

Belmont had just driven into Ohio and Peggy- his sister-felt like she was going to throw up. The third person with the siblings was Sage who was Peggy’s best friend. In two weeks Peggy had lost two siblings. -Rita and Aaron. She was on the way to losing Belmont. Peggy was going to Cincinnati to complete a mission of revenge she had decided to do.Peggy had been engaged four times. And wore the rings around her neck as a symbol of her shame. Soon Peggy would be on the campus where Elliott Brooks - who was a coach- who had ruined Peggy for all others. Rebounds hadn’t worked for Peggy so she was returning the favor. Peggy was going to make Elliot’s life  hell. It was Peggy’s last chance to move on. Elliot was head coach of the Bearcats and had the coach of the year award two times. Elliot had broken Peggy’s heart. Elliot came from a very religious background. Elliot had lost his wife but it wasn’t a loving marriage but Elliot still felt guilty for the way he felt about Peggy. Elliot pushed Peggy out of his life but three years later Peggy was back and since seeing Elliot was starting to get the closure from Elliot bu then he seems to change his mind and realizes how much he had hurt Peggy.

I enjoyed this book a lot. I loved how Peggy was a determined to get revenge and I hated how she felt she wasn’t good enough. But this did pull me in right from the beginning and kept my interest until the end. This choked me up at times. This book was busy at times and sometimes it was hard to keep track of everything. I recommend reading the first book in the series before this one. There was definitely a very hot chemistry between Elliot and Peggy. This was like a roller coaster at times. This was very well written. This also had a very good plot. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I recommend.

Crashed out

By Tessa Bailey

 

On sale for 99¢ for a limited time only!

 

 

 

About the book:

 

His inspiration. His torment. And his temptation… 

 

Jasmine Taveras is the reason Sarge Purcell grabbed his six-string and bailed the hell out of New Jersey four years ago. She’s the fuel for every song he’s ever written—each one laced with bitter, hard-edged, hungry lust. Now, with his hugely successful band on temporary hiatus, Sarge is determined to prove to Jasmine that this “kid” turned into every inch the man she’s always needed… 

 

Men are slim pickings for a single factory girl in Hook, New Jersey…until tall, broad-shouldered hotness walks—or rather storms—into Jasmine’s life. Sarge’s return shouldn’t affect her this way. He’s her best friend’s much younger kid brother, and the kind of rough, gritty, sexiness Jasmine has no right to taste for herself. Even if he lets her.

 

But lust is a blinding, insatiable force. And when it crashes, it will take both Sarge and Jasmine down with it…

Crashed Out (Made in Jersey, #1)Crashed Out by Tessa Bailey
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Jasmine used to babysit Sarge. He grew up knowing he wanted a future with her. A fantasy that never had a chance of coming true.

Sarge has come back to his hometown all grown up. He realizes what he has missed out on. He regrets waiting so long to come back. Only he could not have made himself come sooner.

Jasmine sees the grownup version of Sarge as a threat to her health. He is so hot that he causes a heatwave whenever he is near. Can she resist the man he has become?

I found myself so anxious to get to the end of the story. This book has characters that just move you to feel so many things. I cannot wait to read the next book in the series. What a hot and fun book!
