Reviews of Bailey's Previous Novels:
Too Hot to Handle (#1) -- TBQ
Ever since Henrik saw Ailish, he knew he had to help her – and make her his. He threw away his own career as a cop in order to keep her out of prison, all without her knowing about it. At the time, she doesn’t even know who he is, but he can’t stop thinking about her, and those thoughts are oh-so-dirty . . .
Ailish is on the run from the prison she’s been in all her life – her crime lord father’s control. Since her father’s complete control of her life included her sexual agency (or lack thereof, really – the one lover she had in college was beaten by her father’s men and ended up in the ICU), she gets a thrill out of teasing men, making them want her, but never letting them touch her. Until she meets Henrik that is. She loves teasing Henrik but she also wants to give in to him. The teasing is delicious torment for both of them, but can they survive the burn and the danger closing in?
Can’t my entire review be: Henrik is sexy as hell, Ailish is such a tease, and Tessa Bailey delivers scorching hot sex scenes again? Because that’s accurate. So accurate.
Seriously though, the dirt-smutty goodness is high in Raw Redemption, and Bailey proves yet again that she’s the Queen of Dirty Talking Heroes.
Henrik is such a great hero; he wants to take care of Ailish, but he also wants her to be his and he’s not against dominating her in bed – not that Ailish is complaining about that, mind you. Nor am I. ;) Ailish is not a weak heroine, and she has no problem with going against Henrik, as much to save herself as to save him.
There’s a nice dose of suspense throughout as they work to bring down Ailish’s father before he can harm her. This marks the end of two series, really: this series (Crossing the Line) and the previous one (Line of Duty). I’ve only read one or two from each series, so I’d say they could technically be read as standalones, but they’d be better in order so as to know who all the supporting characters are. I do have plans to play catch up, because I just can’t get enough of Bailey’s dirty, dirty heroes and the strong women they love. Bailey is one of my go-to authors and she never disappoints.
