Why did I want to read this book?
I’m thinking I’m going to be addicted to the Entangled Brazen line. They’re relative short, easy, and entertaining reads and the book blurbs really work for me. This sounds interesting because of that whole off-limits things. It’s always the things that are off-limits that are the most enticing, right?
What worked for me?
Tessa Bailey writes characters with incredible chemistry and Daniel and Story are no different. That first meeting in the hospital already establishes that and the author continues to show us just how much these two are combustible through the story.
I really appreciate those elements of tentativeness, with these two people feeling that connection but somehow accepting that it will only just be for a short time, and those of elements of almost surreal clarity and sureness, with their mounting desire for each other, both sexually and in other aspects as well.
What did not work for me?
I could have done without that bit of revelation towards the end as to the reason why Story’s fiance broke the engagement with her but I can still live with it without it hurting my enjoyment of the book very much.
My over-all take on it?
This was my first Tessa Bailey story and this is only the beginning. I love her writing style: the way she characterizes and the way she develops her characters are just right up my alley. Her romance and sexy times are amazing and they are always tethered to something emotional so they’re very much intense every time. Story and Daniel intriguing characters and I’m glad I got read their story.
About the Author:
Tessa Bailey is originally from Carlsbad, California. The day after high school graduation, she packed her yearbook, ripped jeans and laptop, driving cross-country to New York City in under four days.
Her most valuable life experiences were learned thereafter while waitressing at K-Dees, a Manhattan pub owned by her uncle. Inside those four walls, she met her husband, best friend and discovered the magic of classic rock, managing to put herself through Kingsborough Community College and the English program at Pace University at the same time. Several stunted attempts to enter the work force as a journalist followed, but romance writing continued to demand her attention.
She now lives in Brooklyn, New York with her husband of seven years and three-year-old daughter. Although she is severely sleep-deprived, she is incredibly happy to be living her dream of writing about people falling in love.
