Just when I think that Tessa Bailey cannot make one of her heroes any better, I keep on being proven wrong. But the good kind of wrong where I don’t even care that I’m wrong because this guy is just so damn smoking hot I lose all sense of mind.
In Asking For Trouble we see two characters that were previously introduced in the last book, Officer Off Limits, Brent and Hayden. Holy crap were they so great together from the very beginning that I ended up reading this book straight through until the wee hours of the morning… then I got up for work. The best book hangover I’ve had in a long time. These two together were explosive and they had such great banter even when it came over as insults rather than friendly conversation.
Hayden is what I like to call an uptown girl, she’s got the money, the fancy home, she goes to fancy parties, and her mother is one of those high society types that feels it’s her God given duty to find her daughter and acceptable husband. Hayden has other ideas. She’s not comfortable with the lifestyle, she’s unhappy with the kinds of people she has to interact with since they’re so far from her down-to-earth best friend, Story. So you can imagine that while it’s been ingrained in her that she is better than most people, she has this other side that yearns to break free.
Brent is as blue collar as they come. He’s an explosives expert for the NYPD, and he’s also got a second job as a mechanic since he’s got a family to support. While he’s pretty obnoxious – sometimes – I actually roared with laughter more than anything else whenever he spoke. He’s crude and crass and just a true man’s man. He’s this 6′ 5” monster of a man and he doesn’t forget to remind Hayden of how… big he is. Pun intended. Plus he’s got this seriously dirty mouth that will have your mouth dropping open and in need of a fan. I’m serious. This guy is beyond hot and rough and big and… where was I again?
This was one seriously great read, and I give two thumbs up to Tessa Bailey who is the Master of writing dirty talking heroes that just make you swoon and melt. Her writing is great and the story is fast paced with no lulls in sight that just makes for the prefect, quick, sexy romance that will leave you more than satisfied.
