Review- Boiling Point by Tessa Bailey

Summary-

Falling for a con man is the most dangerous game of all…

Con artist Austin Shaw’s been in disguise so long he’s not sure where his fake identities end and he begins. Now that he’s been strong-armed into working for a specialized undercover unit working with the Chicago police—criminals with unique “skills”—the last thing he needs is to risk his iron control. Especially when it comes to a certain stunningly sexy hacker who tempts him with every look of disdain.

Polly Banks will never, ever trust a con man. On the trail of a ruthless crook who destroyed the only family she’s ever known, Polly is unnerved by the shadow who follows her every move. The one who makes her pulse pound and breath short with lust. Austin. He’s infuriating, enigmatic, and pure sex appeal, and she’s determined to resist him.

But an untrustworthy man of disguise can become anyone he wants…including a man that Polly must trust if she’s to escape their dangerous game alive.

Review-

I really enjoy reading Tessa Bailey's books. Barring the last one, Crashed Out which was a disaster for me, I really enjoy the banter between characters in her books. So I was really happy that I got accepted for an ARC of Boiling Point. Boiling Point is the third full length novel in Tessa Bailey's Crossing the Line series. I really enjoyed it and I am so happy this one was not like her last book.

Let's start with Austin, our hero. Austin is a con man. He's always lived that way because he's been so very good at it. But he's been in it so long that's he's kind of forgotten who the real Austin is. Now working with the Chicago Police Austin is trying to redeem himself all the while falling head over heels for Polly who won't give him a chance. I really liked Austin. I loved how he had a vulnerable side and that we actually got to see it. Austin was an honourable man inside, he just needed to find himself.

Polly on the other hand, hates all con men. Her family has suffered because of one and she is not willing to risk her heart or anything for another. Polly is on a mission to get revenge but Austin keeps coming in her way. I really liked Polly. She was a strong and smart woman who had her head on her shoulders. Even though she tried hard to stay away from Austin she couldn't help but be pulled towards him.

I loved the chemistry Polly and Austin shared. I also loved how Austin was willing to hand over control to Polly instead of being an alpha male all the time. It was different yet sexy how he was willing to be vulnerable. I also loved all the conversations Austin and Polly shared. Their emotional connection was just as strong as their physical one.

What I love about the Crossing the Line series is the banter the entire gang shares. I love each and every single previous couple to bits and I'm glad that we get to meet everyone in this novel. Each person's style is distinct and unique. We are also introduced to Henrik who seems really interesting. I'm curious to read his book which I think is next. All in all Boiling Point was a great addition to the Crossing the Line series.

  1. This sounds like a great read! I loved Protecting What's His but haven't had the chance to read any other Tessa Bailey books. I like the storyline and I'm glad it worked better for you than your last read by the author.
