    1. Quite possibly Tessa's dirtiest dirty talker to date.I'm not sure your ovaries will survive Bowen, but what a way to go :)Review to come closer to release dateFor more reviews visit

    2. This was between a 3.5 and 4 star for read for me. But I'll go ahead and round up for Bowen and his filthy mouth! "Ah, sweetheart, I don't fuck around with virgins." "But I'll get down on my knees and eat that untouched pussy like a motherfucker."Okay, I had two problems with this one.(1) the INSTA-LOVELiterally this book spans over a week tops. It started as insta-lust when Bowen saw a picture of Sera and quickly became insta-loved (2) Virgin SeraI definitely could have done without Sera being [...]

    7. 4 stars TB always delivers off the charts sexy time. I liked the whole storyline of an undercover cop and gang leader. Sera was kind of meh and it was kind of insta attraction but I guess it didn't bug me much this time because I enjoy TBs writing style and IT WAS SO HOT!!!Recommend if you enjoyTessa Bailey booksSmutDirty talking heroA bit of suspense

    8. 3.5 starsI have to admit, I really did enjoy this one. Tessa Bailey is one of my top favorite authors for a reason!The book wasn't perfect, I definitely think the virginal Catholic school girl type of heroine is played out. It wasn't especially believable that she was a New York City cop either. The story line had lots of holes in it, imo. The thing with Tessa Bailey though is that she is able to distract me with her hot, possessive alpha men to the point where I don't even care. She mesmerizes [...]

    9. 4.5 - "You Catholic girls and your filthy minds." Stars!Tessa Bailey has a formula and it works. You cannot dispute that, and I wouldn’t want to. Her heroes are strong, alpha, dirty talking guys, who happily back up their words with knee trembling results. ”We both know it’s only a matter of time before I’m pounding the purity right out of you.”Her heroines are on-the-surface confident, spunky and take-no-shit from the men pursuing them. The storyline may change, but the people involve [...]

    10. I had high hopes for this one but it sort of ended on a fizzle and not a bang. I can usually suspend the disbelief while reading books but this one was a bit too much to take. Bowen, holding hands in church having such strong feeling for her straight away. I mean, this was supposed to be a tough guy! Not saying the tough guys can't fall hard but it wasn't working for me.The heroine came across as a bit immature. What age was she supposed to be? She had been a nurse and then cop so she must at l [...]

    11. 1.5 DNFed not because it was a bad read, but because it was so very boring!The characters were a bit annoying and the female MC was an idiot. Oh, and let's not forget about Bowen! He's got that typical personality, he's the person who gets handed an empire but he doesn't like it. He's a bad guy who's actually good. He has to kill people but he feels sorry for it. So yes, the good little virgin meets the big bad killer with a golden heart and they fall in love.Nope, it's not the kind of story I w [...]

    12. I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I first started reading this book because I've never read any book by Tessa Bailey before. But it turned out to be my different reading experience. I fell in love with her writing style. The story grabbed me from the first chapter and kept me engaged right up until the end. And the sex scenes were so damn hot, I had to fan myself! LOLThe hero, Bowen, was a complex character. He was the heir to South Brooklyn criminal operation. He became the leader when hi [...]

    13. It's official! Tessa Bailey is now a new fav' author for me. From now on, I'll be directly one-clicking all books she will release in the future. Not that I had a doubt about it because after I read "His risk to take", I bought all her books and all I have to find is time to read them all.Even if "Risking it all" is a stand-alone, I suggest you to read "His risk to take" and "Riskier business". You meet Bowen Driscrol several times in them and you get to know him a little better before fully div [...]

    14. If you like a dirty talkera filthy, sexy bad boy then you will LOVE Bowen!With a hard life spent fighting his way to the top of the street crime world he is just a good man at heart that wants better but knows nothing else. Tasked to work with the NYPD when an undercover beauty goes rogue he is unprepared for the changes he is about to experience. He is rocked by a sassy yet sweet catholic girl who has landed herself in the middle of a deadly game.Sera is looking to avenge her cop brother's deat [...]

    15. 4 'OTT' starsThis one has a serious case of insta-love. Bowen, the hero is so OTT and his possessiveness from day one is creeping me out. I nearly threw the towel with all his craziness over a woman he just meet. I have a feeling he will start making up babies name before the month ends.However despite how much I want to roll my eyes at some of the cliche and dramatic moments, this book is freaking addictive. There isn't a lull moment in the plot. I'm sure the panty melting sex scene is one of t [...]

    16. ARC provided by publisher in exchange of honest review. [image error]Risking It All by Tessa Bailey was scorchingly hot and deliciously sexy!! Tessa Bailey never disappoints her readers when it comes to steam, passion, lust, desire, and sex but Tessa took it up a notch when she delivered one of the most dirty-talking alpha hero that I absolutely loved. Ladies, I must warn you not only will your kindles be heating up because Ms. Bailey will leave you panting and begging for more Bowen Driscol. Th [...]

    17. 3.5 STARSAll Serafina wants is revenge, revenge for her brother’s murder. A detective, she decides to go undercover to get evidence, even if she doesn’t have authorization to do that. When opportunity arrives, she infiltrates herself into the life of the man who killed her brother. Bowen is the heir to a crimes enterprise. He never wanted this “job”, but with his father behind bars, he thinks he doesn’t have any option. When NYPD blackmails him he has to become the good guy. He has to [...]

    18. Loved Bowen - although not what I expected from the earlier books. I also liked Sera. I love Tessa Bailey and thought this was an excellent continuation of this storyline. I had no idea how she was going to get them to a happy place in the end, but I liked how she did!Safety gang (view spoiler)[h is a virginH was not portrayed as a manwhore, but I am sure he certainly had himself plenty in the past (hide spoiler)]

    19. “Can’t you see this is the last thing keeping me decent? I don’t have a fucking shred of honor, except for this one thing. Leaving you untouched is all I’ve got left. All I can give you.” He shook her gently. “Do better than me.”Being the heir of a criminal enterprise was not what Bowen Driscol wanted, but he never had a choice. When his father was imprisoned, running the family enterprise fell on his shoulders. And when the NYPD blackmails him into helping one of their undercover [...]

    20. (2.75 stars, but as a personal rule, I round down to 2.)I'm a big fan of dirty talkers. I, myself, like using profanities; they seem to convey my feelings much better than normal words. So you can imagine my excitement when I discovered Tessa Bailey. Hailed as the "Queen of Dirty Talkers", she has a pretty solid following and a great track record. A lot of my friends love her.But unfortunately, I did not. Far from it. I tried to like this book, but I had so many issues with the plot and the char [...]

    21. 4.5 Stars -Hot damn this book was great! When I’ve first been introduced to Bowen in His Risk to Take (Line of Duty #2), I found him an interesting character. Then, in Riskier Business (Sequel in the Crossing the Line series) I found him appealing and captivating and I really should have seen it coming. Sexy? Challenging? Powerful? Trouble? Check, check, check and check! After reading his story I was definitely captivated. I love both Seraphina and Bowen equally. They are two amazing and lovab [...]

    22. Overall rating: 4 starsCheating: NoLove triangle: NoAnything sexual with om/ow: NoOverall Steam Factor/Chemistry (between 1-5): 4.5Themes that may be triggers for some: NoneHEA/HFN: Somewhere in between HFN and HEAMy review:Overall, I really enjoyed Risking it All. The sex scenes were massively hot! Whew!This is my third Tessa Bailey book and finally I can say I actually liked the heroine. Sera was pretty great; she was smart and kind, and just felt…al to me. I really liked Bowen as well. He w [...]

    23. LOVED LOVED LOOOOOOOOOOOVED Bowen! Seriously, I LOVED Bowen! I really enjoyed the book <3 And now I want my own Bowen ;)

    24. 2.5/5 starsI'm not sure if it was just me, but I struggled through this book. I was expecting a light, easy romance that I could fly through, but I had to slog my way through the whole second half of this book. I did like the first half a lot more, but it was never anything too special. I do admit that some of the more romantic or steamy scenes caught my attention, but nothing else really did it for me. I'm just majorly disappointed right now, I was really looking forward to this one.[image erro [...]

    25. This book ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️The hero was just hot enough to hide some minors problems I had with the heroine. But seriously Tessa Bailey must have a guy with a filthy mouth helping her. She delivers THE BEST DIRTY TALKERS!!!

    26. This sure was a steamy book and I certainly enjoyed but I can't say that I truly loved it. Also, I really liked Bowen but he came out as extremely intense, if he were my boyfriend I would probably slap him with a restraining order lol.

    27. I've been curious about Bowen ever since we first met him in His Risk to Take so of course I was excited to finally get my hands on his story. Tessa Bailey excels at writing dirty talking alpha heroes and Bowen is no exception to that, in fact I think he might just be her hottest one yet! What I love most about him is how complicated he is. Bowen would be the first person to tell you he's not a good man, in fact, he was raised to be as bad as they come. His father used to be the boss of the crim [...]

    28. Ok the fact that I took me so long to read should have told me to stop reading it. I have never not read a whole book until the end but this ending was just soooo stupid! What just they what ? Get married nope have sex sure but we don't read about it, but I guess since he called her his girlfriend it's all good right? Because being a good religious girl shacking up with a mob guy is just awesome enough I guess.I call bullshit on this whole story here because, First she is young and a nurse and a [...]
