Officer Off Limits (A Line of Duty Book 3) Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
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, just 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?

Story and Daniel's meeting is both accidental and fate. From opposite ends of the country, the couple will be pulled into a sensual vortex of want and need from their first meeting. Story, needing time to adjust to her fiance's final words, heads to New York to visit her ailing father. Never expecting to meet someone so soon, Story is sexually aware of her attraction and desire for her father's protégé and fellow hostage negotiator Daniel Chase.
The attraction between Story and Daniel is instant. From the first time they lay eyes on each other to their first erotic and spontaneous encounter, the couple is lost in a world of sexual heat, emotional turmoil and sensual need. And keeping their relationship a secret from Story's father is constantly on their mind. The sex is hot and graphic with little room for interpretation. But I am happy to report that although the visual is colorful, Tessa has the ability to write an erotic love scene without the use of certain four letter words.
There is some back story to Daniel's life that is slowly revealed over the course of the book. We learn that although Story's life was never perfect being raised by a single parent, Daniel's early life was much more traumatic and dangerous making him the man and officer he is today.
OFFICER OFF LIMITS is another interesting and fascinating storyline with a little humor and plenty of steam in the bedroom-or stairwell-or backseat-or--well, you get the picture. There are a few moments of suspense as a small secondary story builds throughout the novel and comes to fruition in the final pages of the book, but overall it is a story about two people mutually attracted to one another, who give it their all knowing that at anytime it could all end with a phone call or the discovery of their ill-timed relationship. If you love a contemporary romance storyline where the sex scenes are passionate and hawt; the relationship is adult without the angst of perceived betrayal; and the ability of the author to pull you in until you become one with the characters then OFFICER OFF LIMITS is right for you.

Tessa Bailey has nailed it and this for me was the even better than its predecessors (and they themselves were fabulous). It has a great-storyline, wonderful endearing characters, humour, wit, romance, action, pain and heart-fluttering, page-burning, passionate sexy-time.
With a playboy reputation, Hostage Negotiator Daniel Chase drips sexy. He's bossy, thoughtful and protective but he's also insecure and vulnerable. Story is his boss' daughter; a teacher, she's bright, funny, has a heart of gold and is strong-willed. Visiting her Dad after his heart-attack, she meets Daniel who has been given orders by his boss not to touch his daughter. Clearly one should always obey ones superior...
Tessa knows how to give us characters with whom you become totally invested in and fall completely in love with. Daniel and Story were no different. Touching, romantic moments were combined with passion, intensity and action, Daniel's vulnerable side made my heart ache and the banter between the boys had me laughing rather loudly. With some surprises towards the end it truly was a book that captivated me and I can't wait to find out whose story we will be treated to next (I'm hoping Brent).
Needless to say, it deserves every star and I definitely recommend.
Story Brokes finds herself in New York, her father Jack Brokes NYPD hostage negotiator ends up in hospital after suffering a heart attack.
Her troubles couldn't get any worse as her fiance had also just called off their wedding two weeks before the happy day.
Whilst at the hospital Story meets Sexy Hot Daniel Chase who turns out to be her fathers protege and fellow hostage negotiator.
It may be short, but this book is crammed full of everything that I love in a steamy sexy read.
The flaws in her characters really bring them alive and make them that much more realistic.
Tessa knows how to make you swoon over the alpha males, leaving you with yet another wanted book boyfriend.
It story is fast paced, but not so fast you can't keep up and I really hope there will be another book in the series.
This is a brilliant fast read for all romance lovers.
