Protecting What's Theirs: Line of Duty #1.5 by Tessa Bailey

Another short novella that I love from Tessa Bailey’s Line of Duty Series. Maybe I should look into this thing with the novellas!

Protecting What’s Theirs

Unfortunately the first time I read this book, I was not able to enjoy it.  But it stuck with me and when I read it for the second time, I always have a smile in my face. The characters are solid, if frustrating (Derek) and their chemistry and secrets are on fire!

Derek is such a man and so stupidly clueless- not with any bad intentions but stupid.  And poor Ginger is full of insecurities, which aren’t helped by the big clueless one. These traits made their relationship “feel” real, as everyone knows people like that. And when you add in the secrets and history they reveal to one another and combine that with the chemistry between them and we get a book that made me combust!


“Did you miss me?” He drove deep and held until she writhed and moaned. “You’re supposed to miss me. You’re supposed to crave me. If I’m not the last goddamn thought in your head before you fall asleep, I haven’t been fucking you good enough.” He brought his hand down in a loud smack of her right buttock. “And I think we both know that’s not the case, don’t we?”

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

Possession is nine-tenths of the law. And she belongs to him.

Ginger Peet has never regretted leaving Nashville with her sister and their life-sized statue of Dolly Parton. Now she’s settled in Chicago with Lieutenant Derek Tyler, spending her nights pressed against every inch of his hard, dominating, and panty-meltingly-hot body.

And there’s nowhere Derek would rather be than reminding Ginger—thoroughly and exquisitely—that she belongs to him. But then trouble hits the streets of Chicago. The kind of bust the old-school boys call a "widow-maker." To keep Ginger safe, Derek’s forced to shut her out and keep himself away from her luscious body, or risk losing her forever.

But Ginger has just been presented with some, er, unexpected news. And right now, it’s best she keeps that news to herself. Because Derek stands to lose far more than he knows, until he takes the law—and Ginger—into his own hands one last time...

About Tessa Bailey

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 Brooklyn, New York with her husband of seven years and three-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.
