I received an ARC of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
When it comes to contemporary romance novels, I have to say that Tessa Bailey’s name is among the top of my list. Whether it’s a BDSM-themed book, a sexy action romance, or heroes who love to talk dirty, she always entertains me with her stories. Crashed Out is no different. I am not really a fan of older woman/younger man stories, but I make an exception for amazing writers like Ms. Bailey. As it turns out, I am not wrong in this.
Crashed Out is sweet, sexy, and even funny at times. The heroine is older than the hero, but any reader wouldn’t even get to focus on that fact. What you would gravitate to as a reader was the obvious chemistry between the main characters, the smooth character development that happens throughout the book, and the swoonworthy things that the hero does to win the girl.
I am also not a fan of rockstar heroes, but this hero is different from any rockstar you meet in fiction. He’s a good guy whos fame didn’t blow his ego too much. I think Crashed Out is a good way to start the series. It gets you hooked into the story and makes you look forward to more stories at the same time. I will really be on the lookout for more books from this series and from Ms. Bailey herself.
