By day, Aaron Clarkson suits up, shakes hands, and acts the perfect gentleman. But at night, behind bedroom doors, the tie comes off and the real Aaron comes out to play. Mixing business with pleasure got him fired, so Aaron knows that if he wants to work for the country's most powerful senator, he'll have to keep his eye on the prize. That's easier said than done when he meets the senator's daughter, who's wild, gorgeous, and 100 percent trouble.
Grace Pendleton is the black sheep of her conservative family. Yet while Aaron's presence reminds her of a past she'd rather forget, something in his eyes keeps drawing her in. Maybe it's the way his voice turns her molten. Or maybe it's because deep down inside, the ultra-smooth, polished Aaron Clarkson might be more than even Grace can handle . . .Tessa Bailey writes dirty talking, sexy men like absolutely no one else. You pick up one of her books, you know what you will be getting. And, Aaron does not disappoint. OMG. Dirty talking, sexy, and in a suit. Sign me up.
Aaron and Grace have wonderful chemistry...and their attraction, the person rebelling and wanting to be free and the one who is just starting to figure that out is clear from the beginning. Their story is interesting, Aaron is not the best guy, which he admits. Grace is a little fragile, her past has some things in it that anyone would struggle to get past, and her family doesn't seem quite willing to allow her to handle things in her own way.
The push and pull with Grace and Aaron is compelling, their interludes are hot, sexy and build their attraction and chemistry in a way that is believable, even if their attraction develops quickly.
I like how Bailey doesn't tell you the reason Aaron got fired until late in the book...it was a change moment for him, and in this case, it really didn't matter...other than to illustrate the man Aaron no longer is and how far he has come.
There was an element of insta-love, but at the same time, I believed it...and, even if I didn't, I would have been distracted by the dirty talking hot man.
