We are over the moon excited to bring you the Blog Tour for Tessa Bailey’s BOILING POINT. Grab your copy of the amazing book in the Crossing The Line Series today!
I always love Tessa Bailey’s novels and I’ve been dying to read Boiling Point so when I got a change to take part of this blog tour I jumped for it! This book had is steamy and hot and had so much sexiness. Now sadly this is going to be a short review as I just got to work and I just have a short time to type out this review before I get busy. I could not put this book down. I loved reading every second of the book and I didn’t think I would love Austen so much especially because his a con man. I love how this author can write amazing swoon worthy, protective alpha males and some nice fierce and snarky females.
This book is about a group of cons who got together to work with a detective named Derek. All these guys joined this group to get a better life for themselves and those they love and not ending up in jail instead. Now this book is all about Polly and Austen, Finally! I always love hackers and trust me I loved Polly. Polly hid some dark stuff with in her I mean I always wondered why she hated con artist and in this book we found out why she hated con artist so much and yet she fell in love with Austen. Austen wanted to get under Polly’s skin since the moment he saw Polly. He just did not know how at first but they needed to work together to catch a mutual enemy. In the meantime he made sure he can get under her skin while trying to stop this enemy.
Each character in this book brings a certain skill to the table and that is what made the books so much more interesting and a much more fun read. With that said I still wanted some more suspense no just some suspense here at the end but I did like the build-up to the end. I loved how Austen would give the reigns over to Polly, he noticed how she liked to have all the reigns. But I also loved it when he took all the reigns back. I loved the balance between all that sexy times.
Anyway this a perfect and fun read and I would easily reread this entire series. Now I cannot wait to read the next book in this series as we got a new character in this book and I want to know his story! This book deserves a 5 heart rating! I also loved seeing more of Erin, she is one of my favorite characters after all. Anyway I highly recommend this book because Bailey knows how to bring the A game when it comes to dirty-talking and that hot, sexy times.
“Drop the gun.” He issued the order through clenched teeth. “I find the idea of hurting you distasteful.”
She twisted her body, an attempt to regain control of the Beretta. “I can’t believe you don’t have the decency to put your dick away before charging at me.”
Call him sick, call him whatever you liked, he liked Polly talking about his dick in any capacity. Look at it. Want it. “I’m the furthest thing from decent.”
“No shit.” They were breathing heavily, inches from each other’s mouths. And hell if the swollen bastard between his thighs didn’t react favorably to having her close, even though she might have come there to murder him in cold blood. Pity, his cock didn’t deal in semantics.
“One last chance, Banks. Drop the gun or I’ll take it away from you.”
She pretended to think about it. “See, I’m not really in the mood to cry uncle.”
“Are you in the mood to cry Austin? Now that could be interesting.” She attempted to jerk the Beretta away again, giving him no choice but to dig his thumb into the pressure point on her wrist, releasing her grip automatically. “There now.” Keeping his attention trained on Polly, he placed the gun out of her reach on an overhead shelf. “That wasn’t so difficult, was—”
Her freed fist drilled him in the stomach. A grunt burst past his lips, but masculine pride kept him standing upright. Well, masculine pride and another fist flying in his direction, this time at his head. He shot a hand out to intercept the punch, using the grip to drag Polly off the sink and twist her arm behind her back.
“Aiming for this moneymaker face, sweet?” He clucked his tongue. “Now that’s just cruel.”
“Let me go,” she demanded, her voice vibrating with anger. Although he detected more embarrassment than anything else. He’d never seen her anything but confident. Ready for a challenge. It didn’t sit well that he’d scored her pride, so he let go of her arm. He had questions that needed answering, though, so as soon as he refastened his pants—not an easy feat when his cock still stood at attention—Austin pressed her body back against the sink, blocking both avenues of escape with his arms.
“How did you find my address? I’ve made it impossible.”
Some of her confidence returned in the form of a chin lift. Jesus, he would’ve liked to see that chin pointed toward the ceiling as she wailed for more tongue. “You should know by now that nothing is impossible for me.” Intelligence glimmered in her eyes. “I know you asked Derek to pay you by money order. I tracked the last several serial numbers to four different check-cashing places in the neighborhood.” Her shrug appeared grudging. “That was smart, not using the same place consistently. But I was able to pinpoint your general location down to a three-block radius, nonetheless. This building is the only one not run by a professional management company, and the most likely to rent without a proper credit check and accept cash deposits.”
It took an effort, but Austin managed to hide the chest-expanding awe she’d inspired. “And my apartment number? How did you manage to glean that information, my hot little sleuth?”
“I’m not your anything, Shaw.” She narrowed her gaze. “And your buzzer has the name I.M. TheTits on it.”
