The greater the risk, the hotter the reward…
Homicide cop Troy Bennett had a reputation on the Chicago PD for being fearless and in control—until the night his daredevil partner is killed during a raid. From that moment on, he swears he’ll never again be responsible for the loss of a loved one. To escape his demons, Troy transfers to the NYPD, bringing him up close and personal with Ruby Elliott, a beautiful, street-savvy pool hustler.
Reckless and stubbornly independent, Ruby embodies everything Troy’s avoiding, but when she walks into O’Hanlon’s Pub and blows his carefully laid plans to hell, Troy knows he has to have her—risks be damned. But there’s a connection between Ruby’s shadowed past and a case Troy’s working involving a notorious Brooklyn felon, throwing her safety into jeopardy. Confronted with his biggest fear, will Troy push Ruby away to keep her safe or fight to keep her in his arms where she belongs?
I knew it! I absolutely knew that Tessa Bailey could blow me away again with her new book, His Risk to Take! It’s a short and quick read, but has solidified the fact that Bailey has become a favorite of mine! His Risk to Take is yummy, dangerous and straight up over 100 degrees celsius HOT.
I have one question for Troy and that’s, can I be his risk to take? Because dear god, there is nothing hotter than a dirty talkin‘ sex machine Detective like Troy Bennett! You would have never thought twice because Troy came off as quiet and reserved, but get him in the bedroom and clothes start flying. Troy’s a man who is so manly he’ll melt your panties off with one look. Troy was the type of man to make you want to be in his jeans as soon as humanly possible. Not only that, Troy’s dominating, protective and oh so loving, Ruby wasn’t the only one falling. I want one, please and thank you.
I freaking loved Ruby! She was fire and ice and everything nice. The fact that she can play pool better than any guy I know and can talk right back to a man without hesitation is what I call a kick ass, fierce as hell chick. I wanted to embody her, not just to get in Troy’s pants mind you, but to have the confidence and recklessness she carried with her. Ruby was a survivor and even though she could get herself into some sketchy stuff, she has her own back and can handle herself. I not only loved her snark, but her whole straightforward attitude as well.
I am at Tessa Bailey’s mercy, because wow, she has some serious totally impressive talent for writing passionate, intense, and lusty love romance like no other. This book is just sexy romance at its finest and one I call pure excellence. What’s even better is that she mixes in this explosive seduction with hustling, gambling and suspenseful danger that had me bouncing on my toes with excitement. I want to live in Bailey’s mind because daaaamn, I can’t get enough of her writing, ever.
This book may be short, but it’s packed with lip licking sex scenes, endless wit and intense drama to entice just about everyone!
