Early Featured Book Review: Asking For Trouble (Line of Duty #4) by Tessa Bailey
*** This review is spoiler-free! Read on with confidence! ***
Holy hotness, Batman! If you liked Officer Off Limits and thought Daniel and Story were hot, wait til you get up close and personal with Brent and Hayden. *fans self* Brent is, in his own words, “a big bad dude” and he has an aggressive dominant streak that will melt your bones. He’s also incredibly perceptive and sensitive and takes his I’m-the-provider role seriously, even when it means backing off from what he wants and needs to be sure Hayden is taken care of. She’s a very strong heroine as well, emotionally complex with multiple fronts covering a soft, vulnerable heart that only wants to please others. Together, their chemistry is explosive and the give and take of power between them is perfectly balanced. He might be the big bad alpha dude, but ultimately she’s in control and when she physically takes it from him, it’s hotter than sin. Author Tessa Bailey is certainly making her mark with her dirty-talking heroes, and Brent’s mouth is downright epic. Their arguing and bickering is just as fun as their sexcapades (and really, it’s all just foreplay anyway) and I love love loved them both as characters.
Even handcuffed and at her mercy, this man is a formidable lover!
Until she started unbuttoning her blouse. Picking up where she’d left off at the bar, she popped each button out slowly, methodically, until she had his rapt attention. His throat worked as he swallowed heavily, tongue licking out to wet his lips with each inch of skin she revealed. Power surged through Hayden. She had two hundred and fifty pounds of rugged male between her legs. And she had complete control. She drew her unbuttoned blouse over her shoulders and let it fall to the floor, leaving her in a crimson lace bra.
“I’ve got news for you,” he rasped, eyes blazing. “Seeing your breasts is not the worst form of punishment.”
“It will be,” she said huskily, undoing the front hook of her bra. “Because seeing them is all you get. And, Brent?” She kissed him fast and hard. “I’ve got a fabulous pair. So that’s really going to suck for you.”
Hey, what are best friends for?
“Um, Hayden? Did you get bitten by a zombie last night and forget to tell me?” Story waved a hand in front of her face. “If so, we need to have that awkward conversation where I promise to kill you when the change happens.”
“No.” She shook her head and stepped out of the car. “No killing necessary. And I need to talk to Daniel about the movies he’s letting you watch.”
No arguments here…
“Next time you need me, wake me up.” He bit her earlobe, tugged. “You don’t spend a minute unsatisfied in my bed. Understand?”

If you like paranormal romance and are drawn to alpha heroes who are large and in charge but also have a sensitive side, you might like Jan DeLima’s Celtic Wolves series, starting with Celtic Moon. If lawmen are your thing and you fancy an authentic Southwestern sexy sheriff, check out Melissa Cutler’s Cowboy Justice. It’s the second book in her Catcher Creek series, but stands on its own without requiring you to have read the first one. If you like your heroes with a healthy dose of humor, and your heroines strong and capable (much like Brent and Hayden), you’ll probably also enjoy Tonya Burrows’ Wilde Security series (see our review for Wilde For Her, #2 in the series, here) Finally, if you’re new to the Line of Duty series, you absolutely must read Story and Daniel’s book, Officer Off Limits.
