Author Tessa Bailey ignites the pages in Officer Off Limits. The fiery passion between Story and Daniel has an intense effect on the reader making it impossible to quit this book until the end. Ms. Bailey manages not only to create palpable chemistry between her hero and heroine and sizzling sex scenes but she also gives us one hell of a story.
The beginning of Officer Off Limits had me laughing out loud. Story proves to be a strong woman who can hold her own within the first few pages. The secondary storyline between Story and her father is compelling. I also enjoyed the relationship between Daniel and Story’s father, it added another emotional element to the novel. While Officer Off Limits is categorized as an erotic novel it’s not simply that. This story gives the reader much more. I’m Joyfully Recommending Officer Off Limits because out of all the stories I have read this year Officer Off Limits is the one I tell everyone they need to buy! It has romance, sex, laughs, emotion and more. Tessa Bailey sets the bar high I can’t wait to read what she writes next!
