REVIEW: Officer Off Limits (Line of Duty #3) – Tessa Bailey

Released: July 23rd, 2012

A sexy category romance from Entangled's Brazen imprint...

His need to possess her is non-negotiable. 

Story Brooks’ fiancé just called off their wedding two weeks before the happy day. As if that isn't bad enough, her semi-estranged father, an infamous NYPD hostage negotiator, has suffered a heart attack. Not wanting to examine her lack of emotion over the broken engagement, she hops on a plane to reconnect with her father before it’s too late.

Playboy hostage negotiator Daniel Chase has never, not once, been refused by a woman, so when a debate over hospital snack foods with a delectable kindergarten teacher ends in flat-out rejection, he makes it his mission to seduce her. His only obstacle? She’s the daughter of his mentor who implicitly forbade Daniel from pursuing her.

Despite her father’s warnings and Daniel’s troubled past, Daniel and Story can’t resist their intense attraction to one another. But when the reason for her fiancé’s abrupt wedding cancellation comes to light, can Story and Daniel's already forbidden relationship survive?
“How do people live their lives feeling like this, day in and day out? Like your next breath depends on another person’s happiness.”
This review is long overdue. I know, I'm sorry. But I will be going on somewhat of a hiatus since my school has been crazy busy. So, I have a few reviews ready and I'll post them whenever I feel like I have the time. Thank you for your patience and enjoy this review!

This was one of the best books in the series. Wow. The heroine was sassy and smoking hot. The hero was badass and also smoking hot. Daniel and Story had the kind of chemistry that just can’t be ignored. I was sucked right in and hooked right from the start.

Wow. This book was just wow.

I fucking loved Daniel. I fucking loved Story. I fucking LOVED them both.

The story starts off with well Story. Her fiancé – now ex – was dumping her because he had cheated on her with some bitch from work. Story realized that she was losing bits and bits of herself while she was with that douchewaffle and so this kind of release was kind of a relief for her. And for us. God, I love a woman with a backbone.
“You know, I could have sworn you were going to pick the trail mix.”“Oh, yeah? Why is that?”
“Because you’re both full of shit.”

My God, I fucking love this woman.

Then there’s Daniel, who’s super hot and superbadass. And he’s also had secrets of his own. When Daniel’s mentor, Jack, got a heart attack, his world and Story’s overlapped. That was when it all started. Story, being Jack’s only daughter, was off limits to Daniel, who was a complete ladies man.

And so the war begins.

Daniel had demons to face and, with Story, that was what he tried to do.

He was proving to her that he was capable of being more than a woman’s plaything. And in turn, Story realized, he was proving it to himself.


Really, this book was the bomb. Loved it! (even though some of the lines were really cheesy)

4.5 APPLES!!!!!
