His need to possess her is non-negotiable.
Story Brooks’ fiancé just called off their wedding two weeks before the happy day. As if that isn’t bad enough, her semi-estranged father, an infamous NYPD hostage negotiator, has suffered a heart attack. Not wanting to examine her lack of emotion over the broken engagement, she hops on a plane to reconnect with her father before it’s too late.
Playboy hostage negotiator Daniel Chase has never, not once, been refused by a woman, so when a debate over hospital snack foods with a delectable kindergarten teacher ends in flat-out rejection, he makes it his mission to seduce her. His only obstacle? She’s the daughter of his mentor who implicitly forbade Daniel from pursuing her.
Despite her father’s warnings and Daniel’s troubled past, Daniel and Story can’t resist their intense attraction to one another. But when the reason for her fiancé’s abrupt wedding cancellation comes to light, can Story and Daniel’s already forbidden relationship survive?
Damn can Tessa Bailey write! Like seriously, I just want to read her books forever and ever and will seriously be depressed if she ever stops writing. She writes the best romances with such tension between the couples that it practically leaps off the page. The Line of Duty series is easily one of my favorites, and I am pleased to say Officer Off Limits is another fantastic contribution to the series.
I loved Story, I loved Daniel, and I loved all the supporting characters. They were such a fun bunch. I was sad when the book ended – I was hoping for just a little more story beyond where is ended. I particularly loved the curve Tessa Bailey throws near the books end – I did not see it coming at all!
This book is HOT. Seriously, Tessa Bailey has the art of writing romance nailed to the T! I could not put this one down for a minute once I started. The sparks fly between Daniel and Story right away and even though I knew from the getgo it would end with them together, I needed to know what path Tessa Bailey would take them on.
I already am dying for another Tessa Bailey read, so my countdown shall begin. Anyone looking for a good way to spend a morning, afternoon, or evening should definitely check this one out.
