His need to possess her is non-negotiable.

Story Brooks’ fiancé just called off their wedding two weeks before the happy day. As if that isn't bad enough, her semi-estranged father, an infamous NYPD hostage negotiator, has suffered a heart attack. Not wanting to examine her lack of emotion over the broken engagement, she hops on a plane to reconnect with her father before it’s too late.

Playboy hostage negotiator Daniel Chase has never, not once, been refused by a woman, so when a debate over hospital snack foods with a delectable kindergarten teacher ends in flat-out rejection, he makes it his mission to seduce her. His only obstacle? She’s the daughter of his mentor who implicitly forbade Daniel from pursuing her.

Despite her father’s warnings and Daniel’s troubled past, Daniel and Story can’t resist their intense attraction to one another. But when the reason for her fiancé’s abrupt wedding cancellation comes to light, can Story and Daniel's already forbidden relationship survive?

My Thoughts:

Tessa bailey has become my new go-to-author if I want a story to light my insides ON FIRE and capture my heart with a sweet romance, as well. 

Story Brookes flies out to New York from California when she gets the call that her father, a big time hostage negotiator, suffered a heart attack. Leaving California is not a hard decision because her fiancé has just dumped her two weeks before the wedding (jerk!). What she doesn’t count on is instant attraction and chemistry with her father’s protégé, Daniel. He’s the good at his job, being a cop and brilliant hostage negotiator, but he’s also a notorious womanizer.  Story has no plans of getting involved but the instant sexual tension Daniel ignites is impossible to ignore.  She’s only in New York for a short time, so what’s the harm in taking advantage of Daniel’s well-honed skills? She deserves pleasure and excitement after being dumped by her fiancé.  She wonders how come that doesn’t hurt more.

Daniel has had meaningless one-night stands for as long as he can remember.  When he meets his mentor’s daughter, Story, he can’t explain the way she affects him.  The way she gets him and the all consuming passion she ignites in him. Story is about to knock his socks off and shatter all his walls of protection, too. When Jack makes it abundantly clear he stay away from Story or face the removal of *ahea* certain appendages, Daniel tries to comply. 

Have a mentioned Tessa Bailey is my new queen of Alpha Males?! When I want a bossy, possessive hot Alpha male, I just need to pull up one of her stories and my wish is granted! Daniel was all of that with a sad past and vulnerability that will make you want to kiss it all better! Story was a girl after my heart, too. Being dumped by her fiancé two weeks before the wedding!! Who does that?!! That’s okay, because she has Daniel to make her forget!

This was a quick, read only about 200 pages but boy does it pack a punch. Fiery hot spice and a sweet romance neither wants to acknowledge. This Story is oh-so-good! Oh-so-scrumptious!!I’m putting Tessa Bailey on my “auto-buy” list.
