Why Do We Like This Book?

Nelle Best Mini Banner
I love when an alpha hero meets a prissy girl and unleashes the vixen inside her. In this case, Tessa Bailey’s SWAT Team commander hero is emotionally stunted. He makes up for it by lighting sweet, southern, Julie’s world on fire. I love Reed needs to overcome his intimacy issues to satisfy Julie outside of the bedroom. Tessa Bailey never fails to bring the heat and the chemistry is explosive. [4.5/5 stars] ~ Nelle

Another home run for Tessa Bailey. I adore her stories. They're witty, exciting and crazy-sexy. This one is no different. Reed is a sexy SWAT commander who falls for the perfect Julie. Their first encounter had me heading for the cold shower….and it just got better and better from there. This short book has all the drama, excitement and dirty-talk I expect Tessa, and it fit in perfectly with the others Wedding Dare Series. So, so good. [4.5/5 Stars] ~Adrian

Favorite Quotes

Any closer and she might be tempted to lick one of those tattoos. And just where had that thought come from? Julie Piper didn’t lick tattoos. She licked the odd Popsicle on a hot Atlanta day. Maybe a cherry lollipop on Halloween. Not a depiction of a charging bull underneath the words…what was that? Latin?
“I can’t tell if you’re struggling because you want me to let you go, or if you want to be overpowered. Explain yourself, Julie.” Her panting breaths were her only answer. She curled a leg around his waist and gave another hard push against his solid wall of muscle. Contradicting herself once more. Between her thighs, she felt Reed harden in reaction to whatever he perceived on her face. He made a desperate sound. “Answer me. Let you go? Or drag you down to the ground and fuck you on your hands and knees? I need an answer now.”
“You’ve had me hard for days, baby. I want to fuck you more than I want to breathe.”
“Hard is the only way you ride it. Ever. Is that clear, Julie?”

The Book Details
Publisher Synopsis

Julie Piper and Reed Lawson have nothing in common. She’s a people-pleasing sorority girl hiding behind her perfect mask. He’s a take-no-prisoners SWAT commander who isolates himself from the world. But when they’re forced together at their friends’ posh destination wedding, one thing is clear—Reed wants Julie more than he wants his next breath. Which is why he’s not about to stand by when she’s dared to seduce another man.
Julie wants neat, tidy sex, so she could get back to what she does best—making everybody else happy. She never expected to slip into a dark bedroom and have her mind blown by rough, demanding hands, and a sinfully filthy mouth—neither of which belong to the best man. One night should have been all Reed needed to get the blond temptress out of his system, but when one taste is nowhere near enough, he’ll be forced confront the effects of his hellish past. One that may push Julie away forever...just when he realizes he can't live without her.
