Tessa Bailey – Raw Redemption



Sometimes I worry that my reviews can’t possible convey how exceptional some books are written.  It is much easier to articulate things one doesn’t like about a book.  This is my second Tessa Bailey book.  She has mastered the art of writing explosively hot steamy scenes.  They come often – the scenes, that is. 😉

The book passes muster for being a great suspense, as well.  I’m a huge Law and Order fan, which means I set the bar rather high for legal issues in books.  There are great twists to the plot.  I love it when an author can catch me with unexpected surprises.  More importantly, the twists support the character development and don’t seem out of place.

The balance between romance and suspense is incredibly enticing and makes this a 5 star book.


Loving her might cost him everything…

Disgraced cop Henrik Vance is having a shit year. Banished to a derelict undercover squad, he’s been tasked with hunting down the daughter of Chicago’s most dangerous criminal. His obsession with saving the beautiful girl destroyed his career. And this time, it might cost his life.

Ailish O’Kelly doesn’t need a hero. She’ll save herself from her father’s violent criminal dynasty, thank you very much. Unfortunately, the sexy as sin cop who crashes her hideout isn’t hearing reason—especially not after the kiss that becomes much more.

His boss wants her as an informant. Ailish wants Henrik to keep whispering filthy things against her skin. But she knows too well the evil they’re up against, and when it comes down to protecting the man who owns her body and soul, she only has one choice…

Thank You Arc to Tessa Bailey!



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.
