Contemporary Adult Romance
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?
Tessa Bailey is an amazing story teller! And this book has become my favorite in this series (each book is a stand alone). It was refreshing to see the story flipped, and have the Alpha male have the insecurities and issues, while still maintaining his Alpha status. I caught on early that Jack was playing match maker, but the extend to his game was a surprise. Story and Daniel are a great couple, awesome chemistry, great sense of humor. And endless amounts of toe curling passion. Great read, looking forward to more from Tessa Bailey!
