I’ll be honest, the last two books put together aren’t as good as the first one. This book was okay but it didn’t make me flush or blush. I love a dirty talking man and Daniel didn’t talk dirty very much. There are a few things I’ve come to expect from Tessa Bailey and a filthy mouthed hero is one of them. Don’t get me wrong, I will still read Tessa Bailey! I just wish the last two books were as good as the first.
Story Brooks is a teacher in California. She’s engaged to a doctor she doesn’t really love. Said doctor breaks up with her and right after that she learns that her father has had a heart attack in New York. She goes there to see her dad and meets Daniel Chase. Daniel is a hostage negotiator like her father. Daniel and her father have a special relationship since her dad mentored Daniel. Jack (the dad) tells Daniel to stay away from Story because he’s a man whore. He really really is. Daniel tries to honor Jack’s order, for about five minutes.
