*sigh*I'm trying to come up with something to say about Tessa Bailey and this book that I haven't already said in my past reviews of her books....On her Fbook page it says- "Bailey's Babes. Get a fan." And some ice, and a freezer and...I read this one in less than one day. That frik frakking (fracking?) good. AND I DIDN'T WANT IT TO END!!!! So funny and sexy (understatement of the year). Such a perfect balance of a strong and somewhat damaged and super dirty talking hero. But he was protective and loving without being a complete ass. Story was a great heroine- strong and funny...no wallowing in her sadness.Ms. Bailey is and always will be an autobuy for me. No doubt about it. I cannot wait for Brent and Matt. Between my Kristen Ashley re reading binge and Ms. Bailey, I have to say that my man has been quite a happy boy this week!!! Some of my favorite lines...Ha! Mental booty dance. Who's the expert now, homeboy? "Who am I kidding? When I finally get inside you, I'm going to fuck you until your voice is hoarse from screaming my name." "So, have you actually taken the time to think about his request or have you just been moping around like a puppy with one of those giant cones on its head? " "Moping with a giant cone, mostly. Some thinking." "Hayden, Daniel says he coming." "Ugh, too much information," her friend responded. "Coming to the party, you ass."And one last one for gooooood measure." Fuck yeah. Bite me, gorgeous. Mark up my whole body. I want everyone to know who I belong to. Who I get hard for. Just for you, Story. Just you."
