Falling for a con man is the most dangerous game of all…
Con artist Austin Shaw’s been in disguise so long he’s not sure where his fake identities end and he begins. Now that he’s been strong-armed into working for a specialized undercover unit working with the Chicago police—criminals with unique “skills”—the last thing he needs is to risk his iron control. Especially when it comes to a certain stunningly sexy hacker who tempts him with every look of disdain.
Polly Banks will never, ever trust a con man. On the trail of a ruthless crook who destroyed the only family she’s ever known, Polly is unnerved by the shadow who follows her every move. The one who makes her pulse pound and breath short with lust. Austin. He’s infuriating, enigmatic, and pure sex appeal, and she’s determined to resist him.
But an untrustworthy man of disguise can become anyone he wants…including a man that Polly must trust if she’s to escape their dangerous game alive.
THIS IS A MUST READ!!! Think those other super popular erotic romance series are hot (oh you know the ones I’m talking about)? This book blows them out of the water!
I highlight all my favorite parts of a book when I read – I highlighted so many sections, my copy is all yellow. There are so many quotes that I want to include that my review would be ridiculously long. I can’t help but share a couple (that are PG rated):
“That’s how Austin looks at you. Like maybe you are the freedom and he’s still stuck in the prison yard.”
“Sins were only sins if someone was watching.”
This book is scorchingly volcanic hot. It is so hot that despite the outside temperature being below zero, I needed to pour myself two cold glasses of water. One glass just wasn’t enough.
Austin is skilled in the art of pleasuring women, but yet it’s been a decade since he’s enjoyed sex. The gratification that he gets from Polly certainly makes up for long lost time.
Polly is an intelligent woman gifted in the art of computer hacking and gifted in the art of seducing men. Austin’s caveman possessive side is determined to put an end to her flirtations.
Beyond the explosive sex scenes the story is arc is pretty amazing, too. The “reformed” criminal component was intriguing in the fact that all the characters, both and main and side, were unique. Their crazy backgrounds added cool twists in the story.

About the Author
Tessa Bailey is originally from Carlsbad, California. The day after high school graduation, she packed her yearbook, ripped jeans and laptop, driving cross-country to New York City in under four days.
Her most valuable life experiences were learned thereafter while waitressing at K-Dees, a Manhattan pub owned by her uncle. Inside those four walls, she met her husband, best friend and discovered the magic of classic rock, managing to put herself through Kingsborough Community College and the English program at Pace University at the same time. Several stunted attempts to enter the work force as a journalist followed, but romance writing continued to demand her attention.
She now lives in Long Island, New York with her husband of eight years and four-year-old daughter. Although she is severely sleep-deprived, she is incredibly happy to be living her dream of writing about people falling in love.
