Review: His Risk to Take by Tessa Bailey

Title: His Risk to Take
By: Tessa Bailey

Book Whisperer Rating: 

The greater the risk, the hotter the reward…
Homicide cop Troy Bennett had a reputation on the Chicago PD for being fearless and in control—until the night his daredevil partner is killed during a raid. From that moment on, he swears he’ll never again be responsible for the loss of a loved one. To escape his demons, Troy transfers to the NYPD, bringing him up close and personal with Ruby Elliott, a beautiful, street-savvy pool hustler.
Reckless and stubbornly independent, Ruby embodies everything Troy’s avoiding, but when she walks into O’Hanlon’s Pub and blows his carefully laid plans to hell, Troy knows he has to have her—risks be damned. But there’s a connection between Ruby’s shadowed past and a case Troy’s working involving a notorious Brooklyn felon, throwing her safety into jeopardy. Confronted with his biggest fear, will Troy push Ruby away to keep her safe or fight to keep her in his arms where she belongs?

Troy=yummy!  Yes, there is a plot line to this story but I think what I was so drawn to was the dominance Troy showed when he was around Ruby.  It wasn’t anything over the top but it was present.  He is a cop for Pete’s sake so he has to have this level of authority and he uses it at his job but he also used it with Ruby, which made it even sexier.  His character is so confident and even cocky but not that extreme kind of cocky where it is a turn off from the get go. 

I am really enjoying Tessa Bailey; she knows how to write.  I am looking forward to reading many more of her books and falling in love with the male characters.
