Chase Me (Broke and Beautiful #1) by Tessa Bailey

College drop-out, Roxy Cumberland, moved to New York with dreams of becoming an actress, but her dwindling bank account is quickly putting the kibosh on that fantasy. To make some quick cash, she signs up to perform singing telegrams. Her first customer is a gorgeous, cocky Manhattan trust-funder if she ever laid eyes on one. And what could be more humiliating than singing an ode to his junk, courtesy of his last one night stand? Maybe the fact that she’s dressed in a giant, pink bunny costume...

After a night out to celebrate winning his last case, lawyer Louis McNally II isn’t prepared for the pounding in his head or the rabbit serenading him from the front door. But the sassy wit and sexy voice of the girl behind the mask intrigues him, and one look at her stunning face—followed by a mind-blowing kiss against his doorjamb—leaves Louis wanting more.

Roxy doesn’t need a spoiled rich boy who’s had everything in life handed to him on a Tiffany platter. But there’s more to Louis than his sexy surface and he’s determined to make Roxy see it...even if it means chasing her all over NYC.

I just want to <tackle hug> Tessa Bailey. Chase Me was oh so fun, sexy, touching and everything that is amazing about Bailey and her stories. It's been a bit since I've read one of hers and I swear I just wanted to roll around swoon a little in it all. lol
"Please, oh keeper of the golden penis, let me worship at your flawless phallus."
The quick of it is that Roxy has hit rock bottom and is doing whatever she has to to survive including delivering singing telegrams and belting out an ode to Louis and his mighty fine cock ---thanks to his hook up from the night before. It's...quite the first meet. Whew boy! And oh she catches the playboy's eye something fierce. So now not only does she have to find a job...and a place to live...and deal with new roommates who wanna be friends but she's got to keep her cool around one sexy cocky man with a dirty mouth and a thing for prickly females.

His fists were planted on either side of the door frame, giving her a front-row seat to watch his chest and arms flex. A lesser woman would have applauded. As it was, Roxy was painfully aware of her bunny-costumed status, and even that came in second place to the fact that Approachable Abs was so stinking rich that he could afford to be nursing a hangover at eleven in the morning. On a Thursday.

He dragged a hand through his unkempt black hair. "Am I still drunk, or are you dressed like a rabbit?"

His voice was rough from sleep. Probably not his usual voice. That had to be the reason her tummy did a backflip. "I'm dressed like a rabbit."

"Okay." He tilted his head. "Should I be drunk for this?"

"If anyone should be drunk for this, it's me."

"Good point." He jerked his thumb back toward his dark apartment. "I think there's some tequila left--"

"You know what?...I think I'm all set."

He nodded once, as if out of respect for her decision. "So what now?"
 The Characters:
Pretty much. If I was going to have a man made for me...Tessa would be the one I called to whip that gloriously lickable beast up for me. Gah, but she can write a sexy as sin male. Hell. She even made the name Louis sexy. Alpha playboy with a good heart, a filthy mouth, wicked moves.  *pants*
And Roxy. She totally pulled at my heart strings. She's had a rough go of life but is determined to see her dream of becoming an actress realized. She's a tough chickie who just keeps on fighting with everything she's got. 
"What's next?"

"Tell me something embarrassing that happened to you. It's the only way to get us back on equal footing."
Louis racked his brain, but all he could think about was how good she looked sitting on his desk. How badly he wanted to step between those thighs and relive the kiss heard round the world. H'd hook his hands under her knees and scoot her to the edge. Grind against her until she begged him to rip those jeans off and give her the real thing. And he would. He'd give it to her as long as she needed. Your dick is getting hard. Stop thinking about it. Stop thinking about it. 

"Are you thinking about me naked, Louis?"

The Romance:
Ahhh these two. They're both a little bit broken and have avoided commitment any chance they could so the attraction they feel for each other...blasted inconvenient! But so so fun for us. Roxy was skittish as all get out and Louis really had to work hard for every inch. They were great together though. Had nice wit and banter and seemed to get each other. I loved seeing him woo and fumble and them both deal with each other. It was sweet, funny, lust-able and sometimes it just made me ache for both of them. 
The Sexy:
Good Lord. The sexy. Bailey writes the absolute hottest reads. Toe-curling-make-a-girl-sigh deliciousness. She's my go to for dirty talking males and Louis was rocking a bit of it. He wasn't her most filthy mouthed but, oh yeah, he'll get a girl squirming.  
"While you're lying in bed tonight, think about this." Big hands slipped down and around from her waist to cup her mostly bare backside. She had no time to enjoy the kick of lust in her belly before he seized her flesh tightly and hauled her onto her toes.


Louis placed his mouth directly over hers, as if to absorb her gasp of shock. "The first time you ride me, I'm going to grip your ass just like this. I'm going to move you where I want you. How fast. How slow. It'll all be up to me and this grip."

Oh, God. Oh, God. His promise had a kick of lust whipping into a frenzy. Breathe through it. "S-sounds like a solid plan."

"Not a plan. A promise." He licked into her mouth, kissing her in a way that promised...everything. More. "Good night, Rox."
Really everything about Chase Me and watching these two fall in love and heal each others damaged bits was wonderful. I didn't want to put these two down for a single second. The secondary characters in this one--his friends and sisters and her roommates were just as fantastic as everything else. I can't wait to see what will happen with each of them. If you haven't read Bailey...go. Go now. You must read her! It doesn't matter which title you pick up. If it's got Tessa's name on's going to be absolutely fantastic (and probably rocking a dirty talker). *swoons*
