How steamy is it? Hot Damn

Publisher's Summary

Brent Mason and Hayden Winstead can't stand each other. She plans exclusive parties for her rich family's charities; he's a rough-and-tumble cop who rigs explosives for a living. Could two people be any less suited for conversation? They think not and prefer to keep it that way.

Unfortunately, their two best friends are deeply, disgustingly in love. Forced together, the mutual attraction simmering beneath the surface of Brent and Hayden's non-relationship grows with every argument until it explodes into a scintillating night of mind-blowing sex. And it won't be the last, as far as Brent is concerned.

Hayden has a secret, though. Her father's company is relying on a merger to save them from financial ruin, and only Hayden's marriage to the CEO's wealthy son can secure the deal. If she's to protect her family, she'll have to forget about Brent - and he has no intention of being forgotten.

I know that these are not comedy but .....

I get a kick out of the situations and banter these characters get up to. Yes these are romances and they have some steam but the interplay between all involved make them worth a listen. I recommend Tessa Bailey and her in the line of duty series. Can't wait to start the crossing the line series.

Love the Series

Fun, sexy, and engaging characters with sassy dialogue and good friends. What more could a girl ask for? Hope this helps.

2 ½ stars. I did not like the plot and conflicts.

But parts were good.

My main problem was heroine stupidity. Twice she did something I couldn’t buy. In one of them someone does something bad to Brent and frames Hayden. When Brent confronts Hayden, she is surprised but does not deny it. She leaves him because he believed the evidence instead of trusting her. And then she does something unbelievable.

But I enjoyed the sex scenes.

I really liked the author’s first book “Protecting What’s His.”

The audiobook narrator Alice Chapman was fine.

Genre: contemporary romance

Tessa Bailey can do no wrong

Asking For Trouble is another awesome addition to the Line of Duty series. The passion in the love/hate relationship between Brent and Hayden was fantastic.

Alice Chapman isn't my favorite narrator, but she did a pretty good job voicing all the parts.
