NYPD detective Seraphia Newsom will avenge her brother’s death at any cost. Even if it means insinuating herself into a rough, Brooklyn street gang and going so far undercover, she’s not sure she’ll be able to get out. Every minute she spends in their midst means the clock ticking down on her life, especially when she overhears something that could get her killed.

Bowen Driscol is the heir to a crime enterprise. He never asked for the job, but with his father behind bars, he has no choice but to step in and keep the operation running. But when the NYPD blackmails him with a piece of damning information in exchange for aiding an undercover cop, he finds himself on the other side of the law for the first time in his life.

Bowen knows the danger Sera is in, and keeping her safe trumps saving his own ass. The problem? She can’t know he’s on her side. And there's the matter of the seriously inconvenient heat sparking between them that's incinerating his resistance. But Sera only sees Bowen's past, and men like him are the reason her brother is dead. If they're to get out alive, he'll have to risk exposing the man beneath, and hope to hell he doesn't blow the whole operation in the process.

Wow! What an intense, sexy and unpredictable read. Tessa Bailey out did herself with Risking It All. She had me on the edge of my seat, smiling, broke my heart and of course like Tessa Bailey style got me all worked up with a yummy dirty talker. She is the queen of delicious dirty talking heroes now I am happy to add she is the queen of sexual tension.  It was off the chart hot.
Bowens character was a huge surprise that broke my heart. Since he was little the life he has ever known was in the criminial world. He wants out but does not how to do it. He saves all the good that comes his way. It was the littlest things he does that broke my heart. He falls hard and fast for Sera and worked for me. It was not insta love but I did feel he fell for her fast. They are them selves when together considering they are both undercover. She brings a sense of normalcy to his life with comfort and ease. He is a possessive, cocky, smartass that had me smiling.
Crossing The Line looks to be a good series. I look forward to see where Tessa Bailey goes with it.
