Falling for a con man is the most dangerous game of all…
Con artist Austin Shaw’s been in disguise so long he’s not sure where his fake identities end and he begins. Now that he’s been strong-armed into working for a specialized undercover unit working with the Chicago police—criminals with unique “skills”—the last thing he needs is to risk his iron control. Especially when it comes to a certain stunningly sexy hacker who tempts him with every look of disdain.
Polly Banks will never, ever trust a con man. On the trail of a ruthless crook who destroyed the only family she’s ever known, Polly is unnerved by the shadow who follows her every move. The one who makes her pulse pound and breath short with lust. Austin. He’s infuriating, enigmatic, and pure sex appeal, and she’s determined to resist him.
But an untrustworthy man of disguise can become anyone he wants…including a man that Polly must trust if she’s to escape their dangerous game alive.
This was SO GOOD! I love Tessa Bailey! She never disappoints. The emotions she pulls out of her readers is ridiculous. Her writing is amazing and the characters she brings to the table always hit the right buttons! I loved how much face time we got with the secondary characters that I’ve been missing so so much! The minute I saw the blurb for BOILING POINT I was jumping up and down. Austin and Polly’s story is one that I wanted RIGHT AWAY!
Bailey never fails to bring the HEAT, the EMOTION, and the HEART to her stories. BOILING POINT was page of page of sexy and enticing goodness with witty banter and so much heart thrown into the mix! When con artist meets tech expert sparks FLY! Both are hiding something and they have to learn to trust each other in order to get what they both want.
I LOVE this series! I love the whole premise of it. Think of a tamer, more sexy version of the Suicide Squad. Criminals, each with a different set of skills, come together to fight the bad guys. You can read this as a standalone, but I HIGHLY recommend this entire series! These characters are amazing and the chemistry both in the group and between the couples if fantastic! Sexy, suspenseful, and full of passion, Bailey takes her fans on one incredibly intriguing journey full of sex, lies, and even more lies!
“Ms. Banks.” He made a savoring noise in his throat, dragging his gaze from the tips of her boots upward. “Should I assume from your punctuality that you were hoping to clock some alone time with me? I usually only take scheduled appointments, but you’re always the exception.”
She knew better than to take the bait. Another facet of Austin she had memorized was his sexual gravity. Step off the ledge when he challenged you with innuendo and, well, splat. There was no way to compete with innate charisma like he’d been blessed with. Dammit. “I had no idea you would arrive first. I assumed it would be Connor.” Their resident ex-SEAL insisted on neat edges and precise plans, was usually fuming by the time all six members showed up. “If I’d known, I would have killed some time in Starbucks.”
“Connor used to arrive first,” Austin said, sauntering toward her. “Until I realized it got under his skin when I do instead. So here I am.” He ran a hand over his sculpted mouth, his attention locked on the base of her neck. “And here you are.”
The hard wall against her back felt more like a trap the closer he came. “You go to such lengths to get under people’s skin, but you can’t get under mine.” She tilted her head. “That must drive you crazy, Shaw.”
“You. Are the only thing that drives me crazy.” The tips of his shoes bumped hers, sending a bolt of energy straight up her limbs. “And you damn well know it.”
