“True to Bailey’s style, the book starts off with a lot of sex appeal and passion.” ~ Under the Covers

Though RISKIER BUSINESS introduces the Crossing the Line series, it actually returns to two familiar faces, Ruby and Troy from HIS RISK TO TAKE.

True to Bailey’s style, the book starts off with a lot of sex appeal and passion. You can tell a book is written by Tessa Bailey with its prerequisite dirty talk. Although hot beyond belief, there are times when I feel that Bailey’s racier scenes that precedence over plot and story. Before the author even establishes that Ruby’s father has returned, there’s that tension again, building and building. As a reader who absolutely enjoys that type of chemistry, it’s saying something when I feel like it overrides the other aspects of the story. I no longer see this as hot Contemporary but Erotic because of the focus on the sex. If the author spent as much time on the plot/characters as much as she does the sex scenes, Bailey would hit five stars almost always. But the execution isn’t always there.

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.

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 ( I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for

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!
