Title: Staking His Claim
Author: Tessa Bailey
Series: Line of Duty
Release Date: February 3, 2014
He wants her. All of her.
NYPD sniper Matt Donovan is in Hell. Instead of driving his best friend’s little sister home from college, he’s stuck with her roommate—a fresh-faced ray-of-sunshine with a body that makes grown men weep. There’s no way he’ll allow himself to taint the little vixen, no matter how hard she tries to tempt him, so he resigns himself to the longest—and hardest—drive of his life.
Matt’s obvious attraction suits grad student Lucy Mason just fine. She had no idea her brother’s best friend was so deliciously hot. Knowing he’d never have his wicked way with his buddy’s sister, she lies about her identity and seduces him. But Matt’s no fumbling college boy. His desires run deep—and dark—and he wants to teach Lucy what wicked really means.
Matt’s demanding appetites only make Lucy want more. But when her cover's blown, he’s furious—even as his hunger for her becomes insatiable. Matt can’t trust anyone, least of all himself. And he knows all too well that darkness always destroys the light…
Thoughts on Staking His Claim
Every time I think Tessa Bailey can't top her last hero I should just smack myself in the head for being so duh. Perhaps she was just saving the best for last because holy wow is Matt amazing.It's like, where has this man been hiding? If I really new hew was going to be this hot and dirty I might have not been able to handle it. All of the Line of Duty Men have been strong, dominate men but Matt has that little extra something that made him strong but never overpowering.And Lucy? How cute was she? She kind of reminded me of Hanna from Beautiful Player in a way. Yeah, she kind of did a bad thing at the beginning but overall her relationship with Matt was really honest and had be cheering for them right from their first meet.Overall Staking His Claim is exactly what you expect from Tessa Bailey and she delivers tenfold. This is definitely one series where I'd love to see more of our favorite couples.
about the authorThank you for your interest in my books! I'm Tessa and I live in the crazy, loud, overcrowded borough of Brooklyn, New York. I love it here. This city is a constant source of inspiration, which is why I've decided to set my most recent books in the Line of Duty Series here.
I moved to New York when I was eighteen, the day after I graduated high school. Threw my suitcase in the back of a Chevrolet Cavalier and drove across the country to find my adventure. I'm still finding it, little by little.
Thank you for being a part of it.
