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?
Officer Off Limits is the third book in Tessa Bailey's Line Of Duty series. The previous two books in the series are Protecting What's His and His Risk To Take but Officer Off Limits can easily be read as a stand alone novel. I had thoroughly enjoyed the previous two books and I enjoyed Officer Off Limits just as much. They make up for steamy books which just make you wanna curl up and read.
Officer Off Limits starts off with Story Brooks' fiance calling off their wedding. She is sad and heartbroken. Just when she thinks things couldn't get worse she gets a call notifying her that her dad has suffered a heart attack. So Story hops on a plane and goes to her father. What I love about Tessa Bailey's books are the feisty heroines. Story is strong and determined. She isn't afraid to speak her mind and that's what I loved about her.
Then we have playboy hostage negotiator Daniel Chase. When he meets Story Brooks, who just happens to be his mentor's daughter and totally off limits he is completely smitten away. He's pulled in by her innocence and vulnerability. Daniel, who has always prided himself on his control cannot control himself where Story is concerned. All the rational thinking goes right out the window. It was amazing to see how passionate Daniel was.
When Story and Daniel meet there is an instant spark of attraction. There is what you would call insta love but it is so well portrayed that the whole situation seems actually believable. Tessa Bailey always writes hot intimate scenes. Hot is an understatement actually. I devoured the chemistry between Daniel and Story. The witty conversations, the dialogues, the banter made the book unputdownable.
I loved Matt and Brent and I hope each one of them gets a book. Especially Brent, I hope he ends up with whom I think he'll end up with. Officer Off Limits made me swoon, laugh, sigh and left me happily grinning by the end of it. Tessa Bailey is an amazing author who knows how to reel you into her stories. I would definitely recommend picking up Officer Off Limits or any of the Line Of Duty novels if you're a romance fan.
