Review: Asking for Trouble by Tessa Bailey
The fighting was just foreplay…
Brent Mason and Hayden Winstead can’t stand each other. She plans exclusive parties for her rich familys charities. He’s a rough and tumble cop who rigs explosives for a living. Could two people be any less suited for conversation? They think not and prefer to keep it that way.
Unfortunately, their two best friends are deeply, disgustingly in love. Forced together, the mutual attraction simmering beneath the surface of Brent and Hayden’s non-relationship grows with every argument until it explodes into a scintillating night of mind-blowing sex. And it wont be the last, as far as Brent’s concerned.
Hayden has a secret, though. Her father’s company is relying on a merger to save them from financial ruin, and only Hayden’s marriage to the CEOs wealthy son can secure the deal. If she’s to protect her family, she’ll have to forget Brent. And he has no intention of being forgotten.
This was a quick and sexy read that I devoured in a day. I do adore Tessa Bailey and these sex scenes will you leave you blushing and begging for more. But I have a confession to make, this story didn’t grab me like its predecessors, I found myself skipping/skimming pages! I wanted to move onto conversations, I was over all the descriptions, I was bored with Hayden’s constant rambling and martyr attitude. Speaking of which, Stewart sounds like the scum of the Earth and I would love to see him arrested for something ridiculous later down the line.
Brent was delicious and as sexy as I remembered. He talked a big game and I am happy to report that he absolutely backs it up. The novel is filled with all the secondary characters I have come to love and some that are new and deserve to swiftly die in a fiery pit of doom. Seriously, Hayden’s mom was awful, like a truly horrid person that I never want to encounter again. This is what Tessa Bailey excels at, writing characters that burrow so deep under your skin you can’t help but love or hate them, there is no middle ground. It was just sweet and simple, perfect for an afternoon read.
