{Release Day Review+Giveaway} Too Hard to Forget by Tessa Bailey @mstessabailey @ForeverRomance

Warning: This is third book in a series that should be read in order. If you are new to the series, check out my review of book one- Too Hot To Handle HERE and book two, Too Wild to Tame HERE Too Hard to Forget is the third book in the Romancing the Clarksons series by Tessa Bailey. I really loved book,  Too Hot to Handle. and I liked book two, Too Wild to Tame. This series is an adult contemporary romance series. Book one is still my favorite, but this second installment was good as well. I just love all of Tessa Bailey’s works. This book, Too Hard to Forget, might be my favorite book in the series yet! What I liked the most about this book and this series is the concept. I love a series of interconnected standalone novels, each focusing on a different character. There are tons of books which follow this pattern and it is a big winner for me. Even better if they are books that center around a… Read more »

Even better if they are books that center around a family or group of siblings. I think that is very interesting and adds another layer of complexity and familiarity between the novels. This series centers around the… Read more »

{Review+Dream Cast+Giveaway} TOO HOT TO HANDLE by Tessa Bailey @mstessabailey @ForeverRomance

{Review+Dream Cast+Giveaway} TOO HOT TO HANDLE by Tessa Bailey @mstessabailey @ForeverRomance

Check out Who Tessa pictured as Rita and Jasper. (I completely approve by the way!!) When I cast TOO HOT TO HANDLE in my head (and on my Pinterest boards o’course!) I used a more introverted version of Emilia Clarke as Rita Clarkson. All the shiny effervesce and beauty of a brunette Emilia, with more dark makeup and clothing. This is the picture I sent to my editor when casting for the cover, because I think it captures Rita’s personality: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/508132770433476759/ As for Jasper, he is described in the book as a young, revamped Matthew McConaughey and I think his personality totally matches that of a young carefree (non naked bongo playing) version of the actor. I promise he doesn’t say “alright, alright, alright,” but he does have that cool guy, ladies love me spirit. Scott Porter from Hart of Dixie would be my choice to play Jasper in a film J https://www.pinterest.com/pin/508132770433788636/ Sheesh! This book is all that the title promises and more. Too Hot to Handles is the… Read more »

{Review} Worked Up by Tessa Bailey @mstessabailey @BrazenBooks

{Review} Worked Up by Tessa Bailey @mstessabailey @BrazenBooks

Worked up is the third book in the adult contemporary Made in Jersey series by Tessa Bailey. I loved this book so hard. I stayed up until 2 am reading, and it is the first thing that has put a smile on my face in days. (it has been a tough couple of days…) Worked up works well as a standalone. I have not read either of the previous two books in the Made in Jersey series, and while we do see glimpses of the couples, they do not distract from Duke and and Sam’s story. The focus is always on the two of them. Worked up is the perfect beach or poolside read for people looking for a romance as hot as the Florida sun. Worked up is told in dual narrative bewteen main characters Duke and Sam. Duke is always taking care of everyone around him. His best friend’s family lives with him, and he is resident babysitter to their four year old daughter. And Duke’s four divorcee… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Raw Redemption by Tessa Bailey@mstessabailey @EntangledSelect

{Review+Giveaway} Raw Redemption by Tessa Bailey@mstessabailey @EntangledSelect

Raw Redemption is the fourth book in the adult suspense series, called Crossing the Line by Tessa Bailey. Each of the books can be read as standalones, and I tested that theory because I am new to this series. Raw Redemption is a little bit different than a lot of the books I lean towards. It felt darker than most I read, and it was. But it was a keep you on the edge of your seat book. One that I really enjoyed. Raw Redemption is the story of one time cop, Henrik and Ailish. Henrik is the strong and very intense type. Raw Redemption is not what I would calla light and fluffy book. It is dark and gritty and really action packed. Know that going in. I wouldn’t bring this book to the pool. I would read it at night in bed, under covers when I wanted an action/adventure fix. It took a little bit of time for me to fall into the groove of the story because… Read more »
