    Great read

    Another great read in the Crossing the Line series. Austin and Polly, the con artist and the hacker, make a unique couple and have an even more unique story. Polly is determined to resist Austin but the attraction and chemistry is too much. And then there's the dirty talk....sigh, but trust him?? No way. That is until her life depends on it! Definitely a book I recommend.

    Switching up the roles in this sexy treat!

    This third story in the Crossing the Line series sees con man Austin and hacker extraordinaire Polly finally dealing with the tension between them, set up in the previous books in this series about an eclectic group of shady characters who now work undercover for the Chicago Police Department. Up until now we've just seen glimpses of these two in action, but that all changes with their story, in which Polly finally has the chance to get back at a man who destroyed her life by bringing financial ruin to her fathers. Unbeknownst to Polly though, the man she's looking for (and finally found here in Chicago) is an ex-partner of Austin, who knows just how dangerous he can be. Austin's been attracted to Polly since they first met, but feeling unworthy of any attention from her, did nothing to provoke anything more than a sarcastic response - until now. Desparate to protect Polly, he'll do whatever she asks - even in the bedroom. Working together to catch a con man, will their feelings for each other survive when all the lies and deception are revealed? This story really worked for me. It's told from dual points of view, and I thought the author did a great job of making Austin's voice different than the other heros of her previous books. He's a British con man, saved from jail by a deal with the CPD and I appreciated that his 'voice' reflected his character so well. Similarly Polly, as a woman bent on revenge for years, comes across as a single minded, incredibly smart woman with a purpose. I loved seeing her skills at work in this story. But the heat between these two - whew! Austin makes it clear to Polly that he wants her any way he can get her, and if she needs to be in control in the bedroom he's willing to give it up in a heartbeat if it means he can be with her. I really like stories where an obviously alpha male can be submissive to a woman and still retain a strong masculinity, and that's the case here. But later in the story, Polly also makes it clear that she doesn't want to be in charge all the time (though she takes advantage of the opportunity to have Austin on his knees for her, so to speak), and Austin has no problem switching things up. Like most of this author's books, a dirty talking hero is expected and Austin comes through loud and clear in that regard, even as he defers to Polly's wishes. I really liked the character depth of both Polly and Austin as they struggle with their feelings for each other, in particular Austin's feelings of guilt over having worked con jobs with the man responsible for so much of Polly's heartache. There is a nice thread of suspense through the story as they close in on the guilty party, and everything fell into place quite handily. I loved seeing the characters of the previous stories (Bowen, Sera, Connor and Erin) as they work together, and there is an introduction to a new character, Henrik, destined to get a story as well. Kudos to the author for going out on a limb with this story and making a submissive male just as sexy as a dominant one. 4.5 stars.

    Riveting, Intense & Feverishly Addictive!

    4.5/5 Stars | White-Hot Steam From the very beginning of the Crossing the Line series, Polly and Austin’s crackling adversarial chemistry had my full attention. Every momentous scene they inhabited transfixed me and left me greedy for more. I adored Polly and her biting brilliance and lusted after Austin and his irresistible, cheeky charisma. They stood out, exuded personality, mystery and hilarious animosity, and I simply couldn’t wait for those enticing enemies to become torrid lovers. And now, in BOILING POINT, they finally get their story! When the astoundingly talented Ms. Tessa Bailey writes something, I read it. But this book…Oh, ladies and gents, this book…I didn’t just read it, I consumed it, relished it and now am one Lowe’s trip away from building a glorious shrine to it. I can’t get Polly and Austin’s soul-and-libido-shattering perfection out of my mind—nor do I ever want to! Their unforgettable, incendiary romance annihilated me with every single remarkable, captivating, volatile and white-hot word. Unquestionably my favorite of the series and one of Tessa Bailey’s finest novels to date, BOILING POINT obliterated all of my expectations and gifted me with a story so riveting, intense and feverishly addictive that I foresee a 10-step program in my future. “Just one more ‘hit’. I need it.” Normally I’d describe the characters in detail but won’t today because one of the most enlivening experiences in this novel—besides savoring all of the breathtaking sex—is discovering who Polly and Austin truly are. Those two brash and enterprising ex-ish criminals are so much more than their cunning exteriors. I was overwhelmed with compassion for both character’s unique vulnerabilities, heavy hearts and rallying senses of morality despite their shaky hopes of redemption. And, watching Polly and Austin’s tenuous relationship and mutual mistrust blossom into an unbreakable bond seared with passion, fire and rarefied devotion…well, swooning doesn’t even begin to cover my reaction. And did I mention the sex? Good golly, Mistress Polly! That brazen and commanding siren is a rule-breaking revelation. I was spellbound reading Austin coax, bait and and beg for her to daringly experiment and embrace her deepest and darkest desires with him and only him. Her pleasure is his pleasure. He requires it, lives for it and ardently returns the fantasy favors with frenzied focus and pounding precision. That man has moves the likes of which you’ve never seen before! Their erotic encounters are so deliciously vivid, wicked, raw and inconceivably inspired that you’ll emerge enlightened, glowing and positively green with envy. I’m still in awe over just how much I adored this amazing book and desperately miss Polly and Austin already. The only thing soothing my massive book hangover is the consoling promise of RAW REDEMPTION's exciting release this June! I can hardly wait to reunite with my favorite motley Chicago crew in Henrick and Ailish’s story! Bottom Line: Read this book! Complimentary copy provided in exchange for an honest review.

    Nice one

    I liked how the characters were flawed and so passionate about each other. I especially enjoyed the male character's voice. After reading a few reviews, I thought dominant/submissive twist would make things more interesting and it did. However, I would also add that the sub is definitely topping from the bottom in every scene. So Tessa Bailey didn't go to far out of her comfort zone...
