Tessa Bailey is a new author to me so when I read the blurb of Too Hot to Handle it sounded like a story that I wanted to read. Of course I wish it would have been on my radar sooner but that’s okay, I have it now. I don’t believe I have ever read a romance story that has siblings taking off on a road trip and I really liked that about Too Hot to Handle. From that moment on I knew I was going to enjoy whatever Ms Bailey threw at them and boy was I right.

 

The Clarkson siblings are on the road to fulfill their mothers dying wish. While they all might live close together they are anything but close. Somewhere along the lines they each took their own path so this road trip can either reconnect them or put even more distance between them. While this story was a romance it was also about finding themselves and making their way back to each other as a family which I thought was spectacular and an added bonus.

 

The characters are just simply to die for! They stood out and I don’t mean just their personalities but the uniqueness that was brought to each and every one of them. The descriptions on their individual looks also made me take notice of them, especially Rita, who really stood out. Jasper also did some standing out; he used to be the guy who women went to for a good time but he took time off from that to really figure out what he wanted. When Rita meets him on the side of the road when their ride breaks down I knew he would be trouble but he was definitely the good kind of trouble. Jasper was smooth and total sex on a stick. Instantly you can tell that Jasper is interested in Rita but she doesn’t seem interested at first. All I kept thinking is if Rita didn’t want him I would gladly step in to have his flannel wearing babies.

 

I don’t want to spoil too much but when these siblings are together they have some ridiculously funny moments and arguments. They are trying so hard not to kill one another but you can see it all comes from love. One of my favorite parts is when they’re at a bonfire in the middle of nowhere and they tell a secret that no one else knows. Honestly Peggy’s secret had me laughing for a good long time before I could continue the story. Ms Bailey’s humor was out of this world and it made the book more enjoyable.

The romance progress between Jasper and Rita went at a believable pace. It wasn’t rushed and yet it wasn’t smooth sailing either. These two fall in love in just a matter of days but the way it was written it felt like this couple knew each other longer which I liked. They had great chemistry and Rita fit well into Jasper’s world when it sounded like she was used to being such an outsider in general. The love scenes are smoking and that includes a very dirty talking Jasper which of course I totally had to swoon over. He is one of those heroes that when he starts talking you have no choice but to listen and because of that he has been added to my book boyfriend list, flannel shirt and all.

 

Of all the books I am looking forward to reading the rest of this year I can happily say this series is at the top of my list. I can’t wait to see who will be next and what else will happen on their adventure to fulfilling their mother’s last wishes. This story was funny, sweet and had a happily ever after that I will forever remember.

Series: Made in Jersey #1
Published by Entangled Publishing, LLC Genres: Contemporary, Erotic

Sarge Purcell is in love with a woman who is seven years his senior who just happens to be his older sister’s best friend.  So much so, that she is the secret inspiration for his music career success.  After a four year absence, Sarge returns to his hometown to reconnect and claim the woman that he has always loved – Jasmine Taveras.

 

Jasmine Taveras has always had a big dream of becoming a famous singer; however, her dream never became a reality.  Instead she ends up working in the town’s factory like most of the folks in Hook, New Jersey.  Her life becomes more interesting when Sarge returns to town.  Not only has he grown up into a fine looking, young man; but, Jasmine is surprised to find herself attracted to someone that she used to babysit.

 

With Sarge in hot pursuit of Jasmine, will she give into her desire to be with a younger man?

 

Crashed Out is a tightly crossed-leg, lip-wetting type of novella that will have you fanning your flaming cheeks.  The lust factor between Jasmine and Sarge is mega hot and as you can imagine the sexual encounters are passionate and full of erotic, explicit play.  Although, Jasmine is in a constant internal battle with their age difference, Sarge’s dirty talk relentlessly melts her heart at every turn.  Whereas, Jasmine and Sarge have valid reasons for their uncertainties; I relish in watching the couple discover just how much they deeply feel, want, and need one another.  All in all, Crashed Out is a good read.

Oliver Preston is used to getting what he wants but the last person he needs to want is his sister’s best friend.  But when he spots the woman of his fantasies at New York’s premier BDSM club Oliver finds it difficult to maintain his composure.

 

Interior designer Eliza Ballas accompanied a friend on a whim to a famous BDSM club in Manhattan.  Serve BDSM club does things to Eliza she never expected and now she’s ready to take one sexy Brit to bed. But first she asks the one person she trusts, Oliver Preston to show her the art of BDSM so she can seduce the Brit. Oliver has other ideas. He wants Eliza for himself and intends to take this opportunity to show her he’s the better man for her.

 

Tessa Bailey’s Exposed By Fate is a fabulous kinky romance.  I loved Eliza’s shy sassiness.  How she gathered the nerve to ask Oliver to teach her how to seduce another man, I will never know but it’s hot!  I also couldn’t get enough of Oliver’s cocky dominant hero.  These two make sizzling passionate love together and watching them fall for each other is a treat.  Bailey keeps her characters deep, sexy and romantic Exposed By Fate is another example.

Russell!!!!! Yes yes yes yes. Once again, Ms. Bailey has given us a hero who has earned my heart. I have been waiting for Russell’s story since, Chase Me. We have watched Russell love Abby from afar. His friends want him to declare his love to her, put them both out of their misery and I thoroughly agreed with them : )

 

Russell has friend zoned himself with Abby, the love of his life. He believes he isn’t good enough for her, for you see, Russell is blue collar and thinks that unless he can provide Abby with the material things in life, then he is unworthy of her love. His Abby was raised in luxury and her money intimidates him. Abby is stronger than Russell gives her credit for, she is handling a situation that is breaking her down both mentally and physically. For reasons of confidentiality, Abby is unable to share with her friends why she’s working endlessly, both night and day.

 

Watching Russell struggle with hiding his love of Abby, being there for her and doing anything in his power to make her happy endeared him to me. My heart hurt to see him continuously fight those around him and his own pride as he fought his feelings for Abby. Once Abby realizes that she has feelings for Russell, she decides that for once in her life, she will go after what she wants. Russell doesn’t stand a chance, mwahahahahaa.

 

Tessa is famous for her dirty talking Alpha heroes and in Russell, she didn’t disappoint. Russell is an Alpha male with a sensitivity that made me fall in love with him from the very beginning of Make Me. The love scenes between Russell and Abby were heart pounding, erotic and sexy. I eagerly, impatiently, anticipated Russell and Abby’s story, not only was Make Me worth the wait, Russell goes into my list of top three Tessa Bailey heroes.

 

We catch up with couples from the other books in the Broke and Beautiful series throughout Make Me. Ms. Bailey makes sure that the couples are integrated into the story line without them taking over. It is why I love her books, we get to read about previous characters we’ve come to love without forsaking the existing characters. I hated for Make Me to end as I have such a love for Russell but it was definitely a very satisfying, sizzling and emotional read. Thank you Tessa, for writing such a great hero in Russell and ending out the series with a bang.
