The number one reason I read Tessa Bailey’s books is because she does the dirty-talking hero like no other. ~ Under the Covers

The number one reason I read Tessa Bailey’s books is because she does the dirty-talking hero like no other. With ASKING FOR TROUBLE, you have another sinfully seductive hero in Brent Mason.

Brent is an explosive expert so when he is forced to stay in the close proximity of Hayden Winstead, he knows what combustible chemistry looks like when he sees it. While the stories claims to be an enemies-to-lovers type novel, I would actually say that their fighting is more like foreplay. It’s actually never once portrayed as a deep-rooted hatred but more like flirty playfighting. To me, that’s not really enemies-to-lovers and they seem to drop into the sexual connotations and into the naughty territory very quickly for the hate to be believable.

Brent and Hayden are wonderful together. Their sex is off-the-charts hot! Bailey doesn’t not disappoint on that front. However, I am wondering if this same theme will continue in the rest of the series. Apart from the trademark dirty talk and the feisty heroines, I’m looking for something more in this series. Hayden’s situation with her family isn’t my favourite trope and that’s probably why I wasn’t heavily invested in the story. I’m hoping for something more original.

If you’re in the mood for something naughty and sexy, then Bailey is your go-to gal. Just don’t forget that I’ve claimed all the men in this series for my harem already, but I’m always willing to share 😉

Pretending to be in love has never felt so sexy.

Brent Mason and Hayden Winstead can’t stand each other. She plans exclusive parties for her rich family’s charities. He’s a rough and tumble cop who rigs explosives for a living. Could two people be any less suited for conversation? They think not and prefer to keep it that way.

Unfortunately, their two best friends are deeply, disgustingly in love. Forced together, the mutual attraction simmering beneath the surface of Brent and Hayden’s non-relationship grows with every argument until it explodes into a scintillating night of mind-blowing sex. And it won’t be the last, as far as Brent’s concerned.

Hayden has a secret, though. Her father’s company is relying on a merger to save them from financial ruin, and only Hayden’s marriage to the CEO’s wealthy son can secure the deal. If she’s to protect her family, she’ll have to forget Brent. And he has no intention of being forgotten.

About Tessa Bailey

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.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!

I have to agree that Tessa Bailey does do the best dirty talking hero’s. Protecting What’s His and Officer Off Limits were both great books.

I completely agree she does dirty talking better than anyone else. I read Officer Off Limits and loved it. She writes extremely sexy romances with incredibly sexy alpha males. I can’t wait to read the other books in the series.
