He wants her. All of her. NYPD sniper Matt Donovan is in Hell. Instead of driving his best friend’s little sister home from college, he’s stuck with her roommate—a fresh-faced ray-of-sunshine with a body that makes grown men weep. There’s no way he’ll allow himself to taint the little vixen, no matter how hard she tries to tempt him, so he resigns himself to the longest—and hardest—drive of his life. Matt’s obvious attraction suits grad student Lucy Mason just fine. She had no idea her brother’s best friend was so deliciously hot. Knowing he’d never have his wicked way with his buddy’s sister, she lies about her identity and seduces him. But Matt’s no fumbling college boy. His desires run deep—and dark—and he wants to teach Lucy what wicked really means. Matt’s demanding appetites only make Lucy want more. But when her cover’s blown, he’s furious—even as his hunger for her becomes insatiable. Matt can’t trust anyone, least of all himself. And he knows all too well that darkness always destroys the light…
I don't believe I have ever read a book by Tessa Bailey and I'm going to have to remedy that by reading the first four in this series. OMG this book is amazing!! It was raw, raunchy, real, secy, hot and just everything exciting.

The characters are well written, the story flows well, and she bring other characters in without them being obtrusive.  I loved meeting Matt, he was the strong silent type who had some depths and of course a few scars.  A former member of the military he's joined the NYC police department and formed a loose friendship with the three men in his unit.  Because of that friendship he's sent to help out the little sister of his friend and he's just trying to get her home and out of his hair without there being any problems.  Lucy wants desperately to be the good sister and has had to tame the wild child within her, five minutes after meeting Matt she lets the wild child out and boy oh boy do we have so serious fireworks because of it.

From their first moments together in the cafe until the last page, they were engaging. at times witty, at times naughty and many times extremely sexy.  I love the story, the way the characters came together. Matt had such a hard time coming to terms with his attraction to her and when you read it you will see why. I loved him as a character and I even loved his interaction with Lucy.  Lucy is my kinda gal she's done all she needs to do to become a responsible adult and this is the one time she recklessly gambles with her heart.  Her list of things to do in NYC is such a cool list and certainly brings Matt out of his shell. I particularity loved the last thing on her list and the scene that should have been., It was awesome and amazing and I loved every second of reading it.

They were so hot together and I loved the love making scenes. There is a little bit of BDSM within the series and even though it's not hardcore it's not vanilla either. Matt is a really hot man on a mission when he's with Lucy and Lucy just wants some serious fun. They certainly burn up the sheets *when they make it there* and I love that Lucy submits but gives him hell while doing it.
I highly recommend this book.  I'm going to go get the others in the meantime!! 
Happy Reading
