Officer Off Limits (Line of Duty #3) by Tessa Bailey

I am in love with Tessa Bailey! There I said it. I discovered the Line of Duty series just last month and I am hooked. This is a great series with the right amount of funny sexy banter, charged sexual tension and smart plot lines. From the main characters to the background players, no one is a throw away. No one feels like an afterthought.  Everyone plays. Love it.

This time around we begin with a great sister solidarity break up scene. Story Brooks wins my heart on page three with a bottle of champagne in her hand. She was supposed to be getting married. Now she is headed to New York to a sick father and no husband to be.

Daniel, playboy and NYPD hostage negotiator has no idea the sexy blonde he meets at the hospital vending machine is the boss’s daughter. Too bad because from the get go they are conversational magic! Have I told you guys I love me some good old sexy banter? Well I do. It’s my kryptonite.

“you see, there are three factors one must consider when choosing a snack from a vending machine. Substance, for one. It needs to hold you over until real food is available. Freshness, which your cereal bar is sorely lacking. And finally” his eye dropped to her mouth – “taste.”

--“these are strong points you’re making, but I’m going to need you to be more specific.”

--“ Ah. Peanut butter crackers. You can’t go wrong there. They’re the best bang for your buck.”

--“ …I could have sworn you were going to pick trail mix.


--“Because you’re both full of shit.”

There are quite a few laugh out loud moments in Officer Off Limits which instantly makes a book three stars. Add in the great characters and the right amount of sexy this one gets FIVE BRIGHT and SHINY STARS!

From the cover…..
His need to possess her is non-negotiable.

Story Brooks’ fiancĂ© 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 fiancĂ©’s abrupt wedding cancellation comes to light, can Story and Daniel's already forbidden relationship survive?
