Too Hot to Handle by Tessa Bailey
Too Hot to Handle brings a classic Tessa Bailey alpha with a bit of a gentler side. Jasper's bit of baggage makes him oh-so-compelling. Tessa Bailey's creativity blooms in the premise of the Romancing the Clarkson series. As these siblings make their way across the country, I can't wait to learn more. ~ Nelle [May 2016]
Too Hot to Handle was a such a change up of the latest style of alpha romance written these days, it was exactly the story and characters I needed to reboot my romantic brain. Sometimes you need an alpha male who’s a little unsure of himself as he tries to remake himself from being the town playboy into a man worth a woman’s smile. And that woman was Rita Clarkson, a stranded chef who didn’t know how beautiful she was, especially to Jasper. The other thing that makes this book and start of a series so unique is how Tessa brings in the 4 estranged siblings on this road trip, gives us hints into their inner turmoils and forces you to beg Tessa to write faster.

Reformed playboy meets Girl looking for a new start after her life goes up in flames. Literally. Add in their instant chemistry, sexual tension and the weirdness and hilarity that is a road trip with 4 estranged siblings and you get a recipe for another great story from Tessa!

When rescue looks like a whole lot of trouble . . .
The road trip was definitely a bad idea. Having already flambéed her culinary career beyond recognition, Rita Clarkson is now stranded in God-Knows-Where, New Mexico, with a busted-ass car and her three temperamental siblings, who she hasn't seen in years. When rescue shows up---six-feet-plus of hot, charming sex on a motorcycle---Rita's pretty certain she's gone from the frying pan right into the fire . . .
Jasper Ellis has a bad boy reputation in this town, and he loathes it. The moment he sees Rita, though, Jasper knows he's about to be sorely tempted. There's something real between them. Something raw. And Jasper has only a few days to show Rita that he isn't just for tonight---he's forever.
