Why Do We Like This Book?

Angie Mini Banner
You know I love a good Tessa Bailey alpha male, and she does NOT disappoint with Jonah. He knows what he wants and damn everything that gets in his way. I realized something while reading this book compared to reading other super sexy books: Tessa Bailey does not do graphic; Tessa Bailey does intensely sensuous. And holy hell, were my loins happy about reading Jonah and Caroline's sexy times.
Whoa. Hello there Jonah! Tessa Bailey ALWAYS brings the sexy talk, but raises the domination stakes with Jonah, the BDSM club owner. Caroline is sucked into a crazy tug-of-war between her family's business interests and her magnetic attraction to Jonah. You can count on Tessa to bring a heartfelt story along with panty-melting sex scenes.
Marissa Not So PNR Mini Banner Tessa just keeps upping her game. Both characters had believable flaws and issues they had to work on separately and together, and their chemistry was off the charts HOT. I wanted to yell at Caroline to give Jonah a chance, that he wasn’t just some seedy BDSM club owner. Then I’d turn around and want to make Jonah slow down and not overwhelm poor Caroline. Jonah is like jumping on an enthralling bullet train after you’ve been on a slow, boring freight train. The writing and dialogue is awesome, I started highlighting great lines at the 6% mark.

Tessa does it again! I'll never get enough of her sexy, filthy-mouthed heroes. This is her first trip into the BDSM world and I think she knocked it out of the park! Jonah was intimidating, dominating and sexy and he fell instantly in love with Caroline. She's strong and independent and really did not want to like this man and all he stood for. I loved watching her give in to, then retreat from his advances. This story is HAWT with a capital H, the perfect book for someone new to the BDSM genre. [September 2014]

The Book Details
Publisher Synopsis

Her mind rejects his world. But her body knows its master. Journalist Caroline Preston arrives at Serve, New York City's hottest BDSM club, with one goal—to hate it. If her brother wasn't trying to turn the family's respectable financial magazine into a publication that features "lifestyle" pieces for the wealthy and adventurous, she wouldn't even be there, trying to write an article about a world she doesn't understand. But then she sees him. Jonah Briggs doesn't leave his post for just anyone. As the owner of the club, his sole purpose is to ensure that his clientele get everything they need, but when he sees Caroline, his only thought is what he wants—to dominate the sexy little reporter and give the most exquisite pleasure she's ever experienced. Caroline has no intention of entering that particular lion's den—not with her family's reputation at stake—no matter how dark, sexy, and complex the lion in question may be. But with every encounter, she craves more, and with every slide of his lips, she realizes Jonah might just be the man to break down all her defenses…if she'll let him.
