Disgraced cop Henrik Vance is having a shit year. Banished to a derelict undercover squad, he’s been tasked with hunting down the daughter of Chicago’s most dangerous criminal. His obsession with saving the beautiful girl destroyed his career. And this time, it might cost his life.

Ailish O’Kelly doesn’t need a hero. She’ll save herself from her father’s violent criminal dynasty, thank you very much. Unfortunately, the sexy as sin cop who crashes her hideout isn’t hearing reason—especially not after the kiss that becomes much more.

His boss wants her as an informant. Ailish wants Henrik to keep whispering filthy things against her skin. But she knows too well the evil they’re up against, and when it comes down to protecting the man who owns her body and soul, she only has one choice…




“Henrik could only get himself off in the shower.”

Raw Redemption is the final book in the Crossing the Line series and I’m sad to see this series come to an end! This isn’t a series you necessarily have to read in order as each book focuses on a different pair of characters. However, these characters often make appearances in each others books. I’m currently reading Up in Smoke (book 2) and still need to read Boiling Point after (book 3) and then I plan on reread Raw Redemption :).

Tessa Bailey is a mastermind with romantic suspense novels, she gives readers the right about of suspense, characters with depth, and steamy scenes. I mean, did you read that opening line?! Raw Redemption…what a fitting name for this book! I highly enjoyed the chemistry between Henrik and Ailish, it was indeed raw and burned bright from beginning to end. I really enjoyed Ailish’s character. She was constantly underestimated, it was nice having a strong female lead. Yes, at times she seemed a little immature but when you think about how she grew up it’s understandable. Henrik, oh boy. Henrik is your typical intense alpha who had a naughty way with words.

I’m slightly new to Tessa Bailey’s book but I have yet to come across one that I haven’t loved. And honesty, I don’t know if that will ever happen!

Would I recommend Raw Redemption and/or Crossing the Line series? HECK YES!

highres-MJB_5140.jpg ABOUT THE AUTHOR

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.
