Chelsea & Jessica Get Brazen! Protecting What's His by Tessa Bailey

Hi guys! It’s Chelsea and Jessica again! We are so excited over the feedback we’ve gotten for this feature so far! It definitely makes us even more pumped than we already are! So, this week we are getting Brazen with Protecting What’s His by Tessa Bailey! And oh Lord of everything holy! This book was FREAKING HAWT! No- REALLY. I think Chelsea and I both agreed this is one of the hottest books we’ve read in a long time, if EVER. 

She’s running from the law, and the law wants her bad.

The opportunity was just too damn delicious for Ginger Peet to pass up. The purse full of money she finds—$50,000 to be exact—could give her and her teen sister the new start they need. So she grabs the cash, her gothy sibling, and their life-sized statue of Dolly Parton, and blows outta Nashville in a cloud of dust. Chicago, here we come...

Turns out, Chicago has some pretty hot cops. Hot, intense, naughty-lookin’ cops like Derek Tyler, who looks like he could eat a girl up and leave her begging for more. And more. Tempting as he is, getting involved with the sexy homicide lieutenant next door poses a teensy problem for a gal who’s on the lam. But one thing is certain—Derek’s onto her, and he wants more than just a taste. 

And as far as he’s concerned, possession is nine-tenths of the law.


I actually first heard of Tessa Bailey from two fellow bloggers, Jessirae and Vi. Vi (from Vi3tbabe) actually dubbed Tessa as the Queen of the Dirty Talking Alphas. Chelsea- do you agree with that title? Because DAMN, I know I do!

Chelsea: Hell yeah! I don’t think I’ve met a man more alpha-male than Derek.
Side Note: Thank you times a TRILLION to Jessirae and Vi. This will NOT be our last Tessa book!

If you were on the run from the police- where would you go?

Jessica: Oh, wow. Not to go all Safe Haven on you guys, but I think I’d head to a small coastal Carolina town, like Wilmington. I wouldn’t mind hiding out in a cute beach town.

Chelsea: Haha, I love your Safe Haven reference! I think I’d go to a cabin deep in the woods and hopefully find a really hot lumberjack. LOL

What did you think of the sexual tension between Derek and Ginger? I thought I was going to internally combust.

Jessica: I thought the tension was absolutely delicious! It was very well done and I loved how they didn’t get off to a very good start at first. Derek acts like an ass and Ginger is really stubborn. It cracked me up.

Chelsea: I totally agree! They complimented each other so well that the sexual tension oozed off the pages. I was so impressed with how palpable it was.

Could you date an alpha male like Derek?

Jessica: I don’t know, honestly. I want to say yes, because there’s something really sexy and hot about not being in control. Yet, the control freak in me would probably freak out. So, maybe I would just to see if I could be subdued. LOL.

Chelsea: Haha, great answer Jess! Honestly, I don’t know if I could. I don’t take well to being bossed around, especially by a man. I usually do exactly what they tell me not to do.

Derek’s drink of choice is whiskey neat. What’s your poison?

Jessica: Midori Sour! I love them so much and can drink them like juice! People always give me weird looks because it’s a bright green, but that’s ok.

Chelsea: Oh, Midori Sour! I love it. I would have to go with a Tequila Sunrise. It has the perfect amount of sweetness for me.

Sexiest scene?

Jessica: Oh man, there are SO MANY. I really like their first kiss in the hallway though. It was incredibly hot!

Chelsea: That is definitely a good one! I’m gonna have to go with the bathroom scene. That scene really got me flushed. (Haha, no pun intended)

What did you think of Ginger’s sister Willa?

Jessica: I really liked her! She reminded me a bit of -Livie from Ten Tiny Breaths! She was sweet and cared about her sister, but is dealing with her own issues too.

Chelsea: I adored Willa! I agree with you that she is so sweet and caring for Ginger but she’s also got an edge to her that I really liked.

Hey Chelsea- Are you a fan of “Dolly motherfucking Parton”?

Chelsea: Haha! Oh Dolly, I do love that little southern accent of hers. Not sure I’d have a statue of her in my house though.

So I know these Brazen’s are steamy but Protecting What’s His was beyond that. I don’t even know what word to use to describe the steam in this book. It takes a lot to make me blush, especially when I’m sitting at home and no one is around but my cheeks definitely reddened a time or two.  That being said, I freaking loved every minute.

Ginger has been through a tough childhood and she had to grow up at a young age to look after her sister, Willa, since her mother is always off with a new boyfriend. When Ginger sees an opportunity to take her sister away from Nashville and start over in Chicago, she takes it. The only problem; she had to steal $50,000 from her mom to do it. She ends up moving in across the hall from Lieutenant Derek Tyler and sparks fly. Derek is all about his work and not really looking for a relationship. However, Ginger definitely catches his eye and his need to dominate and his desire for her is off the charts. 

I loved Ginger. She is a sassy southern girl and I liked that she wasn't intimidated by Derek, especially since he's a very intimidating guy. She is definitely affected by him but she wants to be a good example for her sister and she never wants to be like her mother. I like how protective and caring she is for Willa. She would do anything to make sure that she has a better life and that she makes something of herself. I definitely felt like Ginger had a lot to offer and she is super smart. She is so selfless to give up all her opportunities to get away and make her own life so that Willa could have the chance. She is super creative and I love the idea behind the furniture she creates., It's different and unique and I like how encouraging Derek is about it.

Derek is a tough guy. He is quickly moving up in his career because he is good at what he does and he is determined to make Chicago a safer city. He is devoted to his men and I think that says a lot about his character. Derek is the kind of guy that wants to focus on his career and he is a workaholic. He knows that this wouldn't be fair to a woman so a relationship is the furthest thing from his mind. However, I think Ginger really surprised him and he never realized he could care that much for a woman. He is definitely an alpha-male and when he wants something, he gets it. He wants Ginger and he doesn't take NO for an answer.

This book doesn't waste anytime getting hot and heavy and Derek certainly doesn't mince words. He lets Ginger know what he wants and how he likes it right away and he's pretty clear. Derek is definitely a dominant guy and he really likes to dominate in the bedroom too. I think Ginger was really surprised by how much she liked it. As strong and independent as she is, something about the way Derek bosses her around is shockingly sexy. Even though he can be a bit gruff in bed, he is fiercely protective and caring. I liked how hard he fought her instinct to push him away. When Ginger gets herself into a little bit of trouble, he protects her with everything he has and I knew then that he was in deep with her. They compliment each other and where Derek brings out the submissive side to Ginger, she brings out his tender side.

This book is exactly why I love the Brazen line and Tessa Bailey is on top of the favorites list. Not only does she write some EXTREME STEAM but she creates a really intriguing plot that is captivating and really likable characters. I'm so glad there are five books in this series because I can only imagine how much better it gets.

Ok. So. First of all. A huge thank you to Vi and Jessirae again for telling me about Tessa! They weren't kidding when they said her books were hot. They are sizzling! And I loved every minute of this one! I am so excited to continue the Line of Duty series! All gushing aside over the amount of steamy goodness this book has to offer, I really enjoyed Tessa's writing style. I was engaged from the minute I opened the book and could NOT stop reading! I also loved all of our characters!  

When we first meet Ginger, she finds herself at a crossroads. She has a tough decision to make concerning not only her own life, but that of her younger sister, Willa, also. Ginger and Willa's mom definitely won't be winning any mother of the year awards. At 23, Ginger is basically Willa's caretaker- ensuring she is provided for and taken care of. Life has been a struggle for the girls and I admire Ginger for sticking around and not abandoning Willa. She wants her to have a future and she knows staying in Nashville where their mother is still present is not the way to go. 

Ginger's decision leads her to Chicago and therefore to Lt. Derek Tyler of Chicago PD. Their 
first meeting is definitely not the best one. Ginger and Willa are moving into the apartment 
across the hall and the girls are definitely on the louder side. I love their vulgar language and their hilarious back and forth banter! Derek, nursing a mega hangover from the previous night, is kind of a jerk to them. Yet, he can't help but blatantly ogle the beautiful woman that has just moved in. He knows he's in trouble.

"Like a living thing, the swift and potent possessiveness she provoked in him stretched and vibrated in his belly. He'd wanted women before, but not like this. He wanted Ginger immediately. To do things to her he'd only ever fantasized about. If another man had happened to be present on the roof at that moment, Derek didn't doubt he'd throw the unlucky bastard over the side before letting him get a glimpse of her lithe body."

Ginger isn't unaffected by Derek either. He is good-looking, strong, and direct. He does not 
play around when it comes to telling Ginger what he wants from her. These two have explosive chemistry and she is surprised to find she likes when he talks dirty. Ginger is afraid of ending up like her mother- she isn't reckless like her and doesn't want to go down the same shameful path her mother did. Derek, however, won't be easily deterred. He wants her and he plans to have her. He works his way into her life and has Ginger running scared. She reassures herself that it can only be physical between them, but the more they spend time together, the more she sees how much he cares. He never expected to feel the things he does with Ginger, but seeing her lay her insecurities and fears out in front of him, he wants to be the one to protect her. I have to give it to Ginger- she definitely held out a lot longer than I would have!  

I really liked Willa, Ginger's younger sister too. She was fun, sweet, and I liked how we got to find out a bit about her. She is really depressed over not having her mother around, but knows moving to Chicago is in her best interest. We do get to see some of Willa's vulnerabilities- she's never been the girl to go to sporting events or dances and now that she's met a boy, she finds herself coming out of her shell. The sisters are very protective of each other and it really made me smile to see Ginger go to bat for Willa and vice versa.

As Ginger and Derek discover they both do want more from one another, Ginger knows she will have to come clean with him and tell him everything about where she came from. I don't want to spoil anything, but Ginger makes some decisions that she feels are for the best to get her on the right track, but could really jeopardize her life. I loved that the book took on a more action-packed feel towards the end- Tessa came full circle with her story and I was very satisfied with the ending!

Thanks for joining us for another Brazen feature this week! Come back next week as we talk Fighting for Irish by Gina L. Maxwell!

Excerpt Blast: The Deep End of the Sea by Heather Lyons

We are thrilled to share an excerpt for Heather Lyons' THE DEEP END OF THE SEA! THE DEEP END OF THE SEA is a New Adult Fantasy set for release February 13, 2014 and definitely one you need to add to your TBR pile!  

 What if all the legends you’ve learned were wrong? Brutally attacked by one god and unfairly cursed by another she faithfully served, Medusa has spent the last two thousand years living out her punishment on an enchanted isle in the Aegean Sea. A far cry from the monster legends depict, she’s spent her time educating herself, gardening, and desperately trying to frighten away adventure seekers who occasionally end up, much to her dismay, as statues when they manage to catch her off guard. As time marches on without her, Medusa wishes for nothing more than to be given a second chance at a life stolen away at far too young an age. But then comes a day when Hermes, one of the few friends she still has and the only deity she trusts, petitions the rest of the gods and goddesses to reverse the curse. Thus begins a journey toward healing and redemption, of reclaiming a life after tragedy, and of just how powerful friendship and love can be—because sometimes, you have to sink in the deep end of the sea before you can rise back up again.   

 I let it happen again. The temple settles into that stagnant silence I’ve long learned to loathe, and these are the most cohesive series of words I can string together for many long, desolate minutes. I let it happen again. Resolutions apparently mean nothing, even if crafted under the best of intentions. Had I not, just this very morning, recited a daily pledge held dear to my heart: I shall not let myself be used for death? And yet, a man is dead, and I was the weapon that slayed him. I move closer to where he now stands, forever frozen in terror, and press my shaking hand against his outstretched stone one. “I’m sorry,” I whisper, though he cannot and never will be able to hear my words. “So, so sorry.” His eyes, wide and mercifully detail free, offer me nothing in return. Once I commit his features to memory, I construct a life history with a name worthy of his sacrifice. Walt was single (I can’t bear the thought of spouses and children, thus my collection of singletons) and a bit of a daredevil when he wasn’t volunteering to teach literacy to adults in poverty stricken urban areas. He’d gone spelunking at least a half-dozen times, sky diving twice, and bungee cord diving off some crazy bridge in Colorado just once, on his thirtieth birthday. Walt liked to write poetry; how could he not, when his now-deceased parents had named him after one of the greats? Walt liked to talk about poetry, too, which means he needs to be with others like him. I strip off my flannel work shirt, down to a tank top, and get to work. Shoving stones around when half of one’s body is reptilian isn’t the easiest of tasks, requiring a great deal of precision and care. As I always tend to do when placing a new statue, I can’t help but flash back to the one and only time I’d broken one of my victims. I’d been tired—he’d snuck upon me when I’d been sleeping—and an overestimated shove sent poor Nikolaos face first against the temple floor. I’d spent most of that night collecting the pieces which once made a whole man, blubbering in misery. As penance, his head, missing an ear and part of his nose, still sits on a shelf in my bedroom. Treat us gently, I like to imagine him telling me nightly before I sleep. We deserve your care. I have not failed Nikolaos since. Over the ages, I’ve developed a routine to transfer the statues around the island that includes wrapping the bodies in a thick quilt before putting them up on casters. It takes a painstaking amount of time to shift them short or long distances, but each person deserves nothing less from me. Walt’s group sits just outside the temple. They are the philosophers of our island; it only seems natural they would find much to appreciate in both the sun and the stars. I struggle with his body over the stairs—they are tricky to maneuver for me even without hauling a two hundred pound statue—but eventually, I get him exactly where he’ll fit in best. “Ladies and gentlemen, this is Walt,” I tell the still faces forming a cluster near a non-functioning fountain. “His poetry is as beautiful as his namesake’s.” I angle Walt so his eyes face theirs. It’s late afternoon, and there is soft orange light filtering down upon their features. It’s a beautiful sight, which only saddens me, because all of that talk about death and beauty being intertwined is one of the biggest loads of crap I’ve ever heard. Death isn’t beautiful. Too often than not, it’s messy and brutal; even when done in sleep, there’s still that theft of breath, that failure of a heart. Death is an act of violence. I should know. I am one of the most prolific murderers in history. And I think about death constantly. I often wonder what my own death will be like, if I am ever blessed to embrace it. I’m not too picky in my imaginings; I’ll take any sort by this point. Logically, I’d prefer a less painful exit, but, knowing my luck, it’ll be as ruthless as once reported and still widely believed. It ought to be noted I have some of the most wretched luck to ever be doled out, so there is that. The sound of waves crashing against the shore sends my eyes to the horizon. I’ve tried to drown myself in those waters more times than I ought to admit over the years, but the sea always spits me back out. I’ve also tried overdosing on pharmaceuticals, stabbing myself in the chest and eyes (which was just as painful as you’d imagine), and throwing myself off a cliff. Melodramatic, yes, and all ineffective for an immortal cursed with impenetrable skin and a digestive system apparently filled with acid. Death is not my friend. At least, not yet.

Blog Tour Review & Giveaway: London Falling by T.A. Foster

Today is my stop on the blog tour for London Falling by T.A. Foster, hosted by Inkslinger PR. This book is fabulous and a definite recommend for all contemporary romance book lovers. Check out my review below and enter the giveaway!

London Falling
Author: T.A. Foster
Publication Date: January 14, 2014
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Source: eARC via Inkslinger PR

It’s London’s senior year and she only needs one class to graduate. She just didn’t expect her final assignment: fall in love.

Communication 224 has a reputation for giving out the most unique projects of the semester. When London James and Beau Anderson signed up for the class they had no idea they would be paired up together, much less spend an entire semester working on their final grade.

Professor Garcia tasks them to produce a study on the hit reality show, Love Match, a show about strangers falling in love on over the top dates. London and Beau decide to debunk the popular show’s fantasy portrayal of romance. Determined they can date the entire semester and not fall for each other, the classmates share blogs about their dates and start a website where everyone can follow their dating experiment. 

Is staying out of love as easy as it seems? Headstrong and success-driven London discovers there might be more important things in life than an A.


I absolutely adored this book and loved every minute of it. It has such a fun and unique plot but it was also sweet, romantic and emotional. The chemistry between London and Beau was beautifully written and their journey of love was full of both tender and heartbreaking moments.

London is a senior in college and one class away from her dream of moving to California to pursue an acting career. I liked her and how motivated and hardworking she was. She is also a loyal and caring friend and I felt like that said a lot about her character. She is confidant and self-assured so her constant fumbling around Beau was cute and funny. I liked how open Beau was with London and he definitely wore his heart and his feelings on his sleeve. London was a little less transparent and she definitely said the wrong thing a time or two to cause strife between her and Beau. It seemed like London cared more about the grade than her relationship with Beau and I could definitely see how he would interpret her actions. I felt like he gave up on them too soon but I understood that he was just trying to protect his heart because his actions didn’t match his words and actions always speak louder.

This was one of the more fun plots that I have encountered in a while and it is half the reason I loved this book so much. The idea that they have to disprove that you can fall in love by going on dates similar to Love Match (a bachelor type show). The dates they went on were so fun and entertaining and it’s easy to see how they could fall for each other, even when they’re trying to prove it’s not possible. The turning point in their relationship was so romantic and I definitely fell for Beau in that moment. I loved that he cared about London more than anything, including his grade on the project. I know London felt the same but sometimes it takes losing something to make you realize what you really want. She so was so sure about her path and what and where she wanted to go but meeting Beau made her question everything. Realizing how much she cared about him, I loved watching her win him back.

Seriously, this book was a much needed breath of fresh air in the contemporary category and I needed that. The writing was really fantastic and the plot flowed so well. The characters were developed well and I definitely had an emotional attachment to them. The moments of passion between Beau and London were so tender and sweet and I really liked that. I also really liked London’s roommate and best friend, Nina, and I’m hoping her and Andrew might get their own story.

"His palms pressed into mine, taking my hands over my head. I clasped my fingers tightly around his grip. I didn't know sex could be so sweet and hot all at the same time. I had never felt so connected to anyone in my life. Every move he made sent rushes of heat spiraling through my body. I held on tightly, aching with unyielding pleasure at each controlled rock of his hips. This was all I wanted-- to be so close to him that I couldn't feel anything but his heart beating, his breathing, and how much he wanted me."

ARC Review: My Sweetest Escape by Chelsea Cameron

My Sweetest Escape
(My Favorite Mistake #2)
Author: Chelsea Cameron
Publisher: Harlequin
Genre: New Adult
Source: eARC from publisher via NetGalley

The past will always find you.

Jos Archer was the girl with the perfect life; until the night it all came crashing down around her. Now, nine months later, she still hasn't begun to pick up the pieces. Even transferring to a new college and living under the watchful eye of her older sister, Renee, isn't enough to help her feel normal again.

And then she meets Dusty Sharp. For reasons Jos can't begin to fathom, the newly reformed campus bad boy seems determined to draw her out of her shell. And if she's not careful, his knowing green eyes and wicked smile will make her feel things she's no longer sure she deserves.

But even as Dusty coaxes Jos to open up about the past, he's hiding secrets of his own. Secrets about the night her old life fell apart. When the truth is finally revealed, will it bring them closer together;or tear them apart for good?


I am a definite fan of Chelsea Cameron’s writing and I think she creates some really memorable and unique female MC’s. I haven’t read My Favorite Mistake yet but when I saw My Sweetest Escape on NetGalley, I knew I needed to grab it. I felt like Chelsea did a great job of creating an emotional plot but also not overdoing the angst.

Jos was a very interesting and likable character. It’s obvious that she has experienced something very difficult and eye opening and it has really changed her. However, it’s all about perception because she feels more like she is just figuring out who she really is. The old her that everyone knew was the persona she put on to please and it’s who she thought she wanted to be but never really was. While she wasn't exactly thrilled to move in with her sister, I think it ended up being the best thing for her and I think she realized this in the end. 

I liked the development of Jos and Dusty's relationship. There was clearly an attraction between the two but I liked that they simply developed a friendship first. Their banter and interactions had me cracking up a time or two and that is the magic of Chelsea's writing. Dusty has made poor decisions in the past that he is overcoming so he can understand Jos and that fuels their connection. They are also connected by a person from their pasts but they don't know it and when Jos realizes it, she pushes Dusty away. I liked the way this mystery was integrated into the plot and that we are teased piece by piece with regards to who and what changed Jos. The connection to Dusty isn't predictable because we don't even know what happened until that connection is revealed. I really liked the way Dusty handled the situation and I loved that he didn't let Jos push him away easily. He fought for her and in the process, broke down her barriers and helped her heal. 

This book has a really great cast of side characters and I loved that they were a group of friends and roommates but treated each other and the household more like a family. They opened their hearts and their home to Jos so easily and I liked that. I haven't read My Favorite Mistake yet but Taylor and Hunter seem really great. I also liked Mace and Darah. Mace is like a protective big brother and Darah is so sweet. The one person that had to grow on me was Renee, Jos' sister. She was super uptight and I felt like she was really hard on Jos. I felt like she was always on Jos about changing and not really accepting the new her or trying to get to know or understand where Jos was coming from. However, as the book went on, I could tell she really loved her and when she loosened up a bit, their relationship was really nice. I absolutely loved Hannah, Jos' new friend. She is funny, smart and not afraid to speak her mind. She has some demons from her past and I loved her attitude about it and the way she deals with the situation.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book and it definitely held my attention from beginning to end. It was a great new adult that broke the mold a bit and I really liked that. Probably my favorite thing about the book would be the writing. It has a distinct tone that can't put my finger on but I really like and the plot flows really well.
