Julie, maid of honor at her friend's wedding, is perfectly
fine with some sex while at the resort as long as it doesn't
get in the way of her people pleasing. Reed can't help but
want to see Julie relax for five minutes, especially if it
means him being the one to help her do so. What starts as an
accidental night of passion turns into a connection that
both try to fight. When neither are willing to own up to the
pasts that still haunt them, they will have to decide if
they can stand walking away from each other or not.
In the typical Tessa Bailey fashion, BAITING THE MAID OF
HONOR will leave you needing a cold shower. From their first
interaction, Reed and Julie have sparks that burn the page.
But more than their steamy scenes, I love how deep both
characters are. Both are seriously in denial of a few things
about themselves that need to be faced head on. Sometimes it
takes a stranger, or at least someone you haven't known for
years, to tell you the truth, and that's definitely their
case. Their journey in accepting who they are as individuals
and together is sweet, hot, and makes a very enjoyable read.
Overall, the Wedding Dare Novels are an incredible
that can be read alone but shine most when read together. If
you've read any of them before, I would highly recommend
reading BAITING THE MAID OF HONOR. Tessa Bailey has such a
distinctive voice and combined with the killer sex scenes,
this is a story you don't want to miss if you enjoy a good
Julie Piper and Reed Lawson have nothing in common. Sheâ€™s a
people-pleasing sorority girl hiding behind her perfect
mask. Heâ€™s a take-no-prisoners SWAT commander who isolates
himself from the world. But when theyâ€™re forced together at
their friendsâ€™ posh destination wedding, one thing is
clearâ€”Reed wants Julie more than he wants his next breath.
Which is why heâ€™s not about to stand by when sheâ€™s dared to
seduce another man.
Julie wants neat, tidy sex, so she could get back to what
she does bestâ€”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
mouthâ€”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, heâ€™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.
