Review by: Jenn
He’ll own her from the very first touch.
Julie Piper and Reed Lawson have nothing in common. She’s a people-pleasing sorority girl hiding behind her perfect mask. He’s a take-no-prisoners SWAT commander who isolates himself from the world. But when they’re forced together at their friends’ posh destination wedding, one thing is clear—Reed wants Julie more than he wants his next breath. Which is why he’s not about to stand by when she’s dared to seduce another man.
Julie wants neat, tidy sex, so she could get back to what she does best—making everybody else happy. She never expected to slip into a dark bedroom and have her mind blown by rough, demanding hands, and a sinfully filthy mouth—neither of which belong to the best man.
One night should have been all Reed needed to get the blond temptress out of his system, but when one taste is nowhere near enough, he’ll be forced confront the effects of his hellish past. One that may push Julie away forever... just when he realizes he can't live without her.
4 stars out of 5 stars
Sweet Lord this book. This book was so hot and Reed, yowza. I read Baiting the Maid of Honor in a day because I just could not put it down. Tessa Bailey had me hook from beginning to end and now I want to read the rest of the series as well as more of her books.
Baiting the Maid of Honor follows Julie Piper as the maid of honor for her best friend's wedding. She's a people pleaser and would bend over backwards in order to help someone. Reed Lawson is the dark and dangerous, keeps to himself groomsman. Their personalities are complete opposite yet their chemistry is OFF. THE. CHARTS. Their banter, their smexy times, just them being around each other was incredible. Their romance felt real and palpable. Tessa Bailey definitely knows how to write romance that just jump off the pages.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I totally recommend it to anyone interested in a hot, steamy, and sexy romance.
