I love a dirty talker. LOVE. I fall in hardcore lust with a fictional guy who can make my loins quiver and my tummy flutter. Matt is one of those guys who, time and time again, made things happen in my Down There while I read Staking His Claim. Just like Tessa Bailey's other dirty-talking alpha male books, this is fun to read, heart-warming, and undeniably hot. While I was reading, I highlighted more hot quotes in this book than I have in any other book. That is a testament to how much I loved Matt and his filthy mouth. And Lucy? She gives it right back to him with her goading and temptations. I stand up and slow-clap your dirty writing, Tessa. Staking His Claim is explosive erotica that made it to my Certified Favorites list. This book is required reading! [February 2014]

He wants her. All of her.

NYPD sniper Matt Donovan is in Hell. Instead of driving his best friend’s little sister home from college, he’s stuck with her roommate—a fresh-faced ray-of-sunshine with a body that makes grown men weep. There’s no way he’ll allow himself to taint the little vixen, no matter how hard she tries to tempt him, so he resigns himself to the longest—and hardest—drive of his life.

Matt’s obvious attraction suits grad student Lucy Mason just fine. She had no idea her brother’s best friend was so deliciously hot. Knowing he’d never have his wicked way with his buddy’s sister, she lies about her identity and seduces him. But Matt’s no fumbling college boy. His desires run deep—and dark—and he wants to teach Lucy what wicked really means.

Matt’s demanding appetites only make Lucy want more. But when her cover's blown, he’s furious—even as his hunger for her becomes insatiable. Matt can’t trust anyone, least of all himself. And he knows all too well that darkness always destroys the light…


I’ve been working hard on the ✨magical✨ internet since 2006 when I retired from teaching elementary school to stay at home with my two baby girls. Those baby girls are now ornery teenagers, and I'm a single mom, old school lifestyle blogger, smut book peddler, and Shameless Book Con HBIC.
