A sexy category romance from Entangled's Brazen imprint...

He wants her. All of her.

NYPD sniper Matt Donovan is in Hell. Instead of driving his best friend’s little sister home from college, he’s stuck with her roommate—a fresh-faced ray-of-sunshine with a body that makes grown men weep. There’s no way he’ll allow himself to taint the little vixen, no matter how hard she tries to tempt him, so he resigns himself to the longest—and hardest—drive of his life.

Matt’s obvious attraction suits grad student Lucy Mason just fine. She had no idea her brother’s best friend was so deliciously hot. Knowing he’d never have his wicked way with his buddy’s sister, she lies about her identity and seduces him. But Matt’s no fumbling college boy. His desires run deep—and dark—and he wants to teach Lucy what wicked really means.

Matt’s demanding appetites only make Lucy want more. But when her cover's blown, he’s furious—even as his hunger for her becomes insatiable. Matt can’t trust anyone, least of all himself. And he knows all too well that darkness always destroys the light…
Another book that I waited so long to read Stacking His Claim is Matt and Lucy story and wow what an hot sexy story it was I've been dying to read there story for a long time now and ohh boy I am so glad and happy when I finally read it! I am not going to go into to much detail about it because I don't want to spoil it to anybody but that I just love the plot, world building and all the characters especially the hot, sexy, damaged alpha male Matt Donovan that has demons in his past and the ever so lovely, smart and sexy witty Lucy Mason I have to say Matt and Lucy is by far my favorite couple from The Line Of Duty novels. I just really loved and enjoyed to read when Lucy and Matt met for the very first time and boy it was hot when the first laid eyes on each other and when they went to a hotel after the car broke down on them just pure scandalous phew I loved ever minute of it! The ending was just pure perfect for Matt and Lucy. I really loved and enjoyed Stacking His Claim that I am truly saddened to read the end of the line of duty novels.   
Tessa Bailey is originally from Carlsbad, California. The day after high school graduation, she packed her yearbook, ripped jeans and laptop, driving cross-country to New York City in under four days.
Her most valuable life experiences were learned thereafter while waitressing at K-Dees, a Manhattan pub owned by her uncle. Inside those four walls, she met her husband, best friend and discovered the magic of classic rock, managing to put herself through Kingsborough Community College and the English program at Pace University at the same time. Several stunted attempts to enter the work force as a journalist followed, but romance writing continued to demand her attention.
She now lives in Long Island, New York with her husband of eight years and four-year-old daughter. Although she is severely sleep-deprived, she is incredibly happy to be living her dream of writing about people falling in love.



  1. Oh gosh, I can't remember if I read this one or not. Maybe not, since I don't remember? I ADORE Tessa Bailey's books though! I'll have to read this one, since you loved it and I'm sure I will too. Great review, Katiria! :)

    1. Yes it really was a fantastic book! And I absolutely love Tessa Bailey as well! Thank you for stopping by my blog Alyssa.

  2. I got so hooked on this series and ended up reading them all within a week! Staking His Claim wasn't my favourite out of all of them but oh my gosh was it hot *fans self* ;) For me Matt was just a tiny bit too indecisive when it came to his feelings about Lucy but I loved the book anyway. Great review!

    1. Thank you Zareena yes Matt was a little bit indecisive with Lucy but I didn't blame him for being that way, because of what happen to him from his previous relationship with his ex fiancé. I absolutely love anything that Tessa Bailey writes I am also hooked with her books as well. lol Thank you for stopping by my blog Zareena.
