    Fun super sexy read

    My oh my I did love dirty talking Duke! This was a fun, super sexy read that had me smiling all the way through. Duke is big, hairy, gruff but his heart is pure gold. Currently living with his 4 divorced sisters the last thing he needs is another woman in his life. And happily ever after? Yeah right! All he wants is a little peace and quiet and maybe a little Sportscenter once in a while. Then he lays eyes on Samantha Waverly and his world is rocked! He knows he should stay away. She is after all the boss's sister but he can't help himself. The pull to her is too strong. Did he really have to marry her though???? Don't miss this one. It's a great read and I definitely recommend it.

    Must read!

    Samantha Waverly, a children’s books illustrator, is in Hook, New Jersey, for an unexpected weekend. Her brother Renner is tied down and won’t be able to meet with her before Monday, a meeting Sam dreads. Meanwhile the petite Manhattanite intends to experience what nightlife there is in the small factory town. She’s barely settled in the town’s dilapidated bar, The Third Shift, when she spots Goliath, Duke Crawford, a machinery mechanic. He is so unlike the men she usually meets: huge, unrefined, but he stands up for her when she is harassed by some patrons, and her bad puns seem to amuse him! Sam doesn’t do relationships and neither does Duke, so why not enjoy a few moments of sexy entertainment! And if you think you know how WORKED UP will unfold, you will probably be wrong. Tessa Bailey demonstrates once again why she is the queen of urban romance! WORKED UP is fast-paced, the dialogues brilliantly witty, and I laughed myself silly at the wedgie episode; that one is a classic! I will not go into specific details about the romance, because the whole thing would be a spoiler. Duke and Sam are some of the most fascinating characters I have ever read, and simply getting to know them was an unforgettable experience; Tessa Bailey doesn’t do clichés! Sam and Duke’s chemistry is off the charts, the sex scenes are scorching, raw, and passionate, and their personal interactions are filled with heartwrenching moments. Duke’s decision to avoid commitments is such a breath of fresh air, and Sam’s is all too painfully understandable. The writing is seamless, beautiful and to the point, very humorous as well, and Ms. Bailey’s succinct and laser-sharp descriptions paint vibrant images of the characters and the environment. Sam’s sisters are a hoot! WORKED UP is a book to be experienced, and a phenomenal tour de force by the inimitable and ever so talented Tessa Bailey. WORKED UP is one contemporary romance that begs to be read! I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Weak story

    I think the characters were awesome and has a scorching chemistry. And that's it for the good things about this novel. The plot was ridiculous, the ending as cliché as they come. What a bummer. I really like this author normally, but I'll think twice before I buy anything else from her.

    Super Good Book!

    What in the world just happened? Lemme just start this review by saying that in 2013 my world was rocked off its axis by a big, dirty talking dude named Brent Mason. And no one, with the exception of his buddies Matt and Daniel, and one rogue named Reed, has ever come close to dethroning his place in my heart until this weekend. WTF. WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE, DUKE? To simply call this book a 5-star read would be an injustice. I smiled until my cheeks hurt, giggled until my husband asked me what was going on and got so turned on at times I had to put the kindle down and wait until the house was empty. Yeah... so theres that. Simply put - this book was amazing. AHH-MAY-ZING! I love Tessa Bailey's heroes and heroines, some a lot more than others. But Duke... just shuffled my carefully stacked deck. Rearranged the order. This book is an absolute, hands down one click if there ever was one. I can not recommend it enough. 5***** WickedGoooooooodStars for Worked Up!

    Loved!

    LOVED!!! I can't say enough good things about this book - it was wonderful! From the rich girl throw away Samantha to the gentile giant Duke, I just fell in love with the characters. One of the things I enjoy about this author's books is how real she makes the characters feel, right down to their flaws and shortcomings. In this novel, Samantha is backed into a corner by her "sort of" brother Renner. She sees no way to meet her lifelong goal without giving in to his demand.....then she wanders into a bar and sees Duke. Duke is the consummate protector and steps in to keep the barflies away, but all Samantha can see is how hot he is. One thing I really liked is how the author created a sexy leading man that doesn't meet any of the stereotypical characteristics of the usual leading man. Duke doesn't see himself as attractive or worthy, but that doesn't matter. If you enjoy sexy contemporary romance, you will love this book. This is a must read for fans of the genre. The author is on my must read authors' list.
