About Asking For Trouble

Pretending to be in love has never felt so sexy.

Brent Mason and Hayden Winstead can’t stand each other. She plans exclusive parties for her rich family’s charities. He’s a rough and tumble cop who rigs explosives for a living. Could two people be any less suited for conversation? They think not and prefer to keep it that way.

Unfortunately, their two best friends are deeply, disgustingly in love. Forced together, the mutual attraction simmering beneath the surface of Brent and Hayden’s non-relationship grows with every argument until it explodes into a scintillating night of mind-blowing sex. And it won’t be the last, as far as Brent’s concerned.

Hayden has a secret, though. Her father’s company is relying on a merger to save them from financial ruin, and only Hayden’s marriage to the CEO’s wealthy son can secure the deal. If she’s to protect her family, she’ll have to forget Brent. And he has no intention of being forgotten.

Just when I think that Tessa Bailey cannot make one of her heroes any better, I keep on being proven wrong. But the good kind of wrong where I don’t even care that I’m wrong because this guy is just so damn smoking hot I lose all sense of mind.

In Asking For Trouble we see two characters that were previously introduced in the last book, Officer Off Limits, Brent and Hayden. Holy crap were they so great together from the very beginning that I ended up reading this book straight through until the wee hours of the morning… then I got up for work. The best book hangover I’ve had in a long time. These two together were explosive and they had such great banter even when it came over as insults rather than friendly conversation.

Hayden is what I like to call an uptown girl, she’s got the money, the fancy home, she goes to fancy parties, and her mother is one of those high society types that feels it’s her God given duty to find her daughter and acceptable husband. Hayden has other ideas. She’s not comfortable with the lifestyle, she’s unhappy with the kinds of people she has to interact with since they’re so far from her down-to-earth best friend, Story. So you can imagine that while it’s been ingrained in her that she is better than most people, she has this other side that yearns to break free.

Brent is as blue collar as they come. He’s an explosives expert for the NYPD, and he’s also got a second job as a mechanic since he’s got a family to support. While he’s pretty obnoxious – sometimes – I actually roared with laughter more than anything else whenever he spoke. He’s crude and crass and just a true man’s man. He’s this 6′ 5” monster of a man and he doesn’t forget to remind Hayden of how… big he is. Pun intended. Plus he’s got this seriously dirty mouth that will have your mouth dropping open and in need of a fan. I’m serious. This guy is beyond hot and rough and big and… where was I again?

This was one seriously great read, and I give two thumbs up to Tessa Bailey who is the Master of writing dirty talking heroes that just make you swoon and melt. Her writing is great and the story is fast paced with no lulls in sight that just makes for the prefect, quick, sexy romance that will leave you more than satisfied.

    Great review Lisa! I loved this book too!

  2. Ooo, this series sounds good. I haven’t heard of this author before, but I should look into it! I know it’s a well-worn trope, I but I do enjoy a “we have to pretend to love each other” story when it’s well done.

    And call me crazy, but I think I finally figured out how to search for your reviews, Lisa! I was confused since everything seems to be listed as “posted by Autumn” so I’ve come back here several times and left with a hangdog expression.

      Wendy – to view Lisa’s reviews you need to go on the left hand side bar & look for “Categories” and choose “Lisa’s Reviews” – I’m the webmaster and 99.5% of the posts on the site are made by me (um, because because I know how it works much more than Lisa). Hope that helps!

    • Lisa says:

      Oh yes, that’s because Autumn is the one who sets up the posts… and releases them. :)
