Riskier Business by Tessa Bailey
Troy and Ruby are back and bring all the heat you would expect. Troy and Ruby love hard and fight hard. This book exposes new facets to their relationship and sets the stage for Risking it All. While it's not necessary to read His Risk to Take in advance, it is highly recommended.
Another home run from Tessa!! Troy and Ruby's relationship is tested as Ruby's past comes back to haunt her. Troy has to give up his much needed control and let Ruby do her thing. It's hot, it's sweet, it has that HolyShit! moment I love, it's hot. It has Bowen…….and everything else we love about Tessa's books. [January 2015]
A harsh noise escaped him. “I don’t need to touch your pussy to know it’s dripping for me. But fuck, I want to. I want to lick it clean.”
Crossing the Line Series Reading Order
Author’s note: I’m spinning off the Line of Duty series with Troy and Ruby who we first met in His Risk to Take. The continuation of their story is Riskier Business and will set the reader up for the Crossing the Line series.
One more game. And this time, there are no rules…
After a life of pool hustling and living on the wrong side of the law, Ruby Elliott is living on the straight and narrow with sexy-as-all-hell NYPD detective, Troy Bennett. Now the only trouble Ruby has with the law is the naughty kind, pinned against the wall by Troy's strict and spectacularly hard body. Obeying his every command. Both of them losing themselves in a lust that borders on obsession...
But then her father returns with an offer she can’t refuse: one last hustle in exchange for information. Information she’d die to have. As the pieces and the players of the game reveal themselves, Troy feels the fine edges of his control slipping—control he can’t channel without hurting Ruby. The stakes are high, and the risk higher. Because losing this final game could cost more than Ruby’s heart…it might cost her life.
