One more game. And this time, there are no rules…After a life of pool hustling and living on the wrong side of the law, Ruby Elliott is living on the straight and narrow with sexy-as-all-hell NYPD detective, Troy Bennett. Now the only trouble Ruby has with the law is the naughty kind, pinned against the wall by Troy's strict and spectacularly hard body. Obeying his every command. Both of them losing themselves in a lust that borders on obsession...But then her father returns with an offer she can’t refuse: one last hustle in exchange for information. Information she’d die to have. As the pieces and the players of the game reveal themselves, Troy feels the fine edges of his control slipping—control he can’t channel without hurting Ruby. The stakes are high, and the risk higher. Because losing this final game could cost more than Ruby’s heart…it might cost her life.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
“You’re very confident.”
“Yeah. I am. Do you know why?” Troy pressed his hips close. She could feel his substantial erection, thick against her behind. “I have what makes you moan. What’s going to make those thighs open wide. I’ve got it right here and you’re fucking dying for it.”
While Riskier Business revisits characters from the Line of Duty series, the story actually is a novella length book kicking off the start of Tessa Bailey’s new series, Cross the Line. Riskier Business catches up with Troy and Ruby as they settle into their relationship, just a NYPD officer in love with a retired pool hustler… Unfortunately, interrupting their happy life is Ruby’s father, back to cause more problems, and he definitely does! With a proposition that’s hard for Ruby to say no to, will she turn her father down or put her new life and the people she loves in danger?
…He tore away with a curse and worked his hips faster. “Hot, slippery girl.” Her ass hit the desk, giving Troy more leverage . At an angle, he drove deep , giving her a swift, accurate pounding. “Did you need Officer Bennett to come by and give you a nice hard ride?” Without pausing in his assault, he wrenched her thighs wider. “Well? How the fuck am I doing?”
Ruby shuddered as his words tempted another release. “Fucking amazing. Perfect. Don’t stop, don’t stop, don’t stop.”
“Go on, baby. Tighten up and come again.” He pressed their foreheads together, locking his gaze with hers. “As soon as you do, I’m going to sink all the way in, to the back of your pussy . I’m going to do what only I have the privilege of doing. And you’re going to take my seed and love it.”
Riskier Business was pure trademark Tessa Bailey: HOT HOT HOT with a big ole scoop of dirty talk and a side dish of role-play! There’s also a touch of intrigue and an interesting revelation that comes out as well. Troy Bennett is a complete BEAST and I love him and his dominating ways! He is so sexy, definitely book boyfriend material. I seriously adore him! The chemistry between Troy and Ruby is still as hot as ever and worked for me from start to finish. Ruby did piss me off a bit. I understand why she made the decision she did but wish she would have taken the advice of those around her and not dealt with her dad.
Overall, this was a great read. Tessa Bailey delivers big with a short and sexy story. Really looking forward to the next book in this series, Risking it All, which will be Bowen’s story. I was super excited to see that it’s a full length story too!
