    Super hot romance with intriguing characters

    Continuing the Crossing The Line series, this smoking hot addition (easily read as a standalone) features Erin and Connor, two new recruits in the Chicago PDs undercover group of not so squeaky clean people who are making a go of it on the right side of the law. Connor comes from a military and organized crime background. Erin is an arsonist (for reasons we soon come to comprehend) and an expert at escaping confined spaces. She's also got a phobia of being touched. When Connor and Erin find that the blazing attraction between them can't be denied, Erin must decide whether trusting Connor with her body and her heart will be worth the risk. So here's a conundrum for you - how can you write hot sex scenes when one of your characters doesn't like to be touched? Well, Ms. Bailey manages to outdo herself here, combining some super special dirty talk with a hero who is willing to give the heroine exactly what she wants and can handle, and making a fabulously sexy story out of the deal. I loved Erin's character - she's been through emotional trauma that has resulted in extreme claustrophobia combined with a fear of personal touch. Though the circumstances are touched upon it doesn't overwhelm the story but gives just the right amount of insight into why Erin is the way she is. Her need to define all her situations by the ability to escape if necessary was quite fascinating. Enter Connor, the uber protective alpha male and she's finally got someone on her side who will listen to her every need and desire. I loved the two of them together and the development of their relationship was well written and contained lots of emotional honesty as they need to be able to communicate with each other if they are going to succeed as a couple. There are some secondary characters in the story that were equally intriguing. While two of the team members, Bowen and Sera, we've seen before in the first story in the series, the other two, Austin (a chameleon of disguises) and Polly (an accomplished hacker) are a bit of an enigma and will surely make for an interesting read when their story comes out later this year. There's a nice cameo of Derek, the Chicago cop hero of Ms. Bailey's story Protecting What's His as it's his team. There are two main plots running through the story in addition to the romance between Erin and Connor - Erin's past coming back to haunt her as well as the the first case for this motley crew - to bring down a corrupt politician. It made for lots of action and a fast paced story. Combine that with the steamy love scenes and it all worked for me. 4.5 stars!

    Not your typical romantic story

    This is definitely not your normal romance story. I was intrigued the moment I read the blurb and I am really glad that I managed to get my hands on an ARC. I thoroughly enjoyed the story and the characters. They are simply intriguing, complicated and entertaining. You will definitely find danger and action, together with notes of humor and hotness, and definitely a feel of romance and tenderness that will make you swoon. Connor is a really interesting character. With his dark looks, amazing physique and mesmerizing green eyes, he will definitely melt your panties. But when you add to that the demons chasing him every moment of his life and the darkness lurking inside of him, he becomes simply delicious. But he is even better than that. He has an alpha side that will make you beg him to dominate you and a tender and romantic side that will for sure make you fall for him. But this tender and romantic side belongs to one single woman and that's Erin. She is simply his other half. Erin is an intriguing character all on her own. Suffering through a nightmare as a child and teenager, she has scars that she doesn't believe could be healed. She erected walls around herself for protection and for keeping everyone at arms length. And that all worked until she met Conner. Somehow, he manages to break through and manages to help her heal little by little. Even though Erin's nightmares are still chasing her, Conner is the one who protects her and at the same time manages to set her free, to help her find her inner strength. The strength she needs to finally confront her demons and beat them. In a few words, this was a really good book and also quite different from the normal romance story. I definitely enjoyed it and I loved the characters. I will be for sure diving into the rest of the books connected to this one. I am definitely interested to learn the other characters' stories. And I can't wait until the next book in the series to come out. I am definitely intrigued to read Austin and Polly's story :) I am pretty sure it will be a page turner. This review was originally posted at Living In Our Own Story Book Blog. I received an ARC of the book in exchange of an honest review.
