Publisher: Forever
eBook: $2.99 USD

Sometimes you just can't resist playing with fire…

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…


REVIEW- 4 Stars
I’ll admit, I was worried about this book. Aaron is such a jerk, in the first book. But, there were tiny moments where I thought I could see into a tender soul and I’m so glad I read his story because I loved this book even more than the first. 
Those moments, the ones where you can see the true Aaron, they are there in the beginning of the book, however it isn’t until later that you really understand why he acts like he does. His sweet youngest sister, Peggy, seems so soft-hearted, it’s the typical line of thinking when you meet a character like her. So, I was surprised to find out that in some ways, Aaron is even more so, he just knows how to protect himself against hurt better than she does. 
The most incredible part, is watching Aaron discover those bits of himself, coming to the realization that he isn’t the heartless shell he believes himself to be. His journey is rough and painful, but I was so happy to join him along the way and see the happy result at the end.
Grace is a fantastic character, a ball of energy and full of life. She is easy to like and I feel like the reader will become instantly invested in her story, if only to spend more time with her.  She’s been through some terrible things, and her family only makes it worse. And yet, she is a survivor and has turned her tragedy into something good so that she can make peace with it. She really helps push the story, keeping up the pace of the book.
These two practically combust with lust when they are together. They have fun and sweet moments, but they also have sexy and oh-so-hot encounters where the burn is almost tangible to the reader. 
This has been a great series so far and I can’t wait for the next one! I’ve put Too Wild to Tame on the reread shelf!


Too Hot To Handle, #1
Too Wild To Tame, #2


Tessa Bailey is originally from Carlsbad, California. The day after high school graduation, she packed her yearbook, ripped jeans, and laptop, and drove 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 and daughter. Although she is severely sleep-deprived, she is incredibly happy to be living her dream of writing about people falling in love.
