    Fantastic concluding story to the series!

    Trust Ms. Bailey to end her series with a bang! From the first page to the last, I found this to be a very exciting, super sexy (no surprise there), and surprisingly suspenseful story. While it may have some classic tropes to it - a woman on the run, a man willing to do anything to save her - there are enough twists and turns to make it unique and a stand out story in this series. While each book in the series has featured a unique couple, Ailish and Henrik have a chemistry and compatibility that leap off the page. Ailish may have the persona on the outside of being a spoiled mafia princess, but she’s really a smart young woman who has been a prisoner all these years under her father’s thumb. Her father used her mathematical abilities to his advantage, making Ailish his oddsmaker and indirectly making her responsible for the ruination of men who gambled with her father and lost. To atone for these sins, she tried to turn over evidence to the police, knowing she’d go to jail - only it never happened. Faced with the knowledge that she’d have to get out on her own, she found a chance to escape and took it, knowing her father would go after her but trying to keep one step ahead of him. When Henrik shows up at her hotel room, she instinctively believes that she can trust him, even if he isn’t telling her the whole truth. But more importantly his body speaks to hers. Having never had the chance to have a normal teenage life with friends and boyfriends, Ailish developed a teasing personality, her form of sexual rebellion. Finally, she’s found a man who can take that teasing and turn it into something that will benefit them both. Henrik’s obvious attraction to her, and his difficulty in keeping his hands off of her is something she relishes, and before long they are doing the down and dirty in classic Bailey style. Their scenes are some of the hottest I’ve read, yet at the same time, believable for this couple. Henrik and Ailish push each other to the limit. Henrik was a dedicated police officer with a single minded focus on his job - until Ailish blew his composure out the window and he sacrificed that job for her well being. Given the chance to make up for it, his work as an undercover cop for Derek is one he’s willing to engage in only because he knows it will give him an advantage in keeping tabs on Ailish. And when she disappears, he relies on his teammates to find her and get him to her. Henrik is a large, physically present man, and while his size might intimidate the bad guys, Ailish isn’t scared of him one bit. With her, he alternates between being her protector and being her lover, playing any games she wants so long as she ends up with him. But the problem is one of trust. Henrik can’t tell Ailish everything about his operation, and Ailish doesn’t want to put her faith in someone who wants to keep the truth from her. It’s a constant battle of wills between them with neither really gaining the upper hand. Instead they must find a way to compromise. But the clock is ticking, and it's only a matter of time before it's going to run out. There are some great scenes involving the rest of the undercover team - Connor and Erin are tasked with aiding Henrik so we see more of them, and also a little of Bowen and Sera, and Austin and Polly. Best of all we get some more of Derek too, whose story Protecting What’s His started off the Line of Duty series and it’s only fitting that he close this series off too. I’ve really enjoyed this unconventional group of characters with all their quirks and flaws and really unique stories. The Crossing the Line series ends fittingly with Raw Redemption, and will be on my permanent re-read pile, right up there with the Line of Duty series.

    Loved!

    Wow, just, wow. This is a very sexy telling of Vance's story. In it we learn more about his disgrace that led him to being on the "misfit" squad. He remains obsessed with Ailish and goes in search of her. He finds her, but also, he finds himself. Their story isn't pretty, but it is very gritty and raw and told in an explicit way. Very, very hot and sexy, but also a great plot interspersed with bits of humor. While reading this, I kept wondering what the author would do in the next book in the series, as this one would be hard to top, to then read that this is the final book in two series. Noooooooooooo! I feel like I've gotten to know the characters in the two series, especially as they keep appearing in subsequent books, and will miss them. I've loved each book in both series, so while I'm sad, I can't wait to see what the author writes next. This is where I'd normally state that this is a stand alone book and, technically, it is, but you really need to read the others to appreciate this novel.

    Meh... 2.5 stars

    The plot of this story often felt accessory. No matter what was happening, the characters were horny and were finding time to do something sexual. It seemed a bit silly in the context at times. Not to mention the actual holes in the story. Tessa Bailey creates interesting characters, though the male type is getting old after a few novels, but I think she needs to spend more time writing on what is happening to them. Apart from sex.
