REVIEW: OFFICER OFF LIMITS BY TESSA BAILEY

His need to possess her is non-negotiable.

Story Brooks’ fiancé just called off their wedding two weeks before the happy day. As if that isn't bad enough, her semi-estranged father, an infamous NYPD hostage negotiator, has suffered a heart attack. Not wanting to examine her lack of emotion over the broken engagement, she hops on a plane to reconnect with her father before it’s too late.

Playboy hostage negotiator Daniel Chase has never, not once, been refused by a woman, so when a debate over hospital snack foods with a delectable kindergarten teacher ends in flat-out rejection, he makes it his mission to seduce her. His only obstacle? She’s the daughter of his mentor who implicitly forbade Daniel from pursuing her.

Despite her father’s warnings and Daniel’s troubled past, Daniel and Story can’t resist their intense attraction to one another. But when the reason for her fiancé’s abrupt wedding cancellation comes to light, can Story and Daniel's already forbidden relationship survive?

Our Review:

Let me skip over the synopsis and get straight to the point. This read is quick, easy, and hot. I mean...whew...HOT. Daniel has such a little hot mouth..the things that he thinks and the things that he says to Story ...whoa. He's your quintessential hot alpha male..with a touch of vulnerability under it all. Story, on the other hand, is coming off a broken engagement and trying to remember and embrace her true self. She hits NYC with all sort of things going on in her head..and lots and lots of sass.

YES! Whoa! Right out of the gate, you know exactly how this casanova picks up women...doesn't matter when, doesn't matter where. But I liked him. He makes no excuses...and while this makes him have to prove himself as the story goes along...we just...you know how much we love a dirty mouthed man! Whoop! 

Story's dad has a heart attack and this is what brings them together..seeing as Daniel works for her dad. The big question that urges this romance on..(besides whether they can sustain a new *thing* the rebound of her broken engagement) is how long she will stay. Story's dad will only need help temporarily..will there be enough time to see what, if anything, can be developed between them? 

I was worried about the limited time they had together, and was hoping we wouldn't be having an unbelievable love line here. BUT while their steaming up the sheets is fantastically hot...the rest of their interactions are fun and believable too. It wasn't all about sex as you go either, so that was interesting...and like Shel says next: Read and find out! 

This is so much fun...a fantastic weekend read...you'll finish it within hours. YES! It's fast and fun! It's written well...and it is one that I am so glad I bought!

About the Author:

Thank you for your interest in my books! I'm Tessa and I live in the crazy, loud, overcrowded borough of Brooklyn, New York. I love it here. This city is a constant source of inspiration, which is why I've decided to set my most recent books in the Line of Duty Series here.

I moved to New York when I was eighteen, the day after I graduated high school. Threw my suitcase in the back of a Chevrolet Cavalier and drove across the country to find my adventure. I'm still finding it, little by little.

Thank you for being a part of it.
