Sometimes you just can’t resist playing with fire . . .
By day, Aaron Clarkson suits up, shakes hands, and acts the perfect gentleman. But at night, behind bedroom doors, the tie comes off and the real Aaron comes out to play. Mixing business with pleasure got him fired, so Aaron knows that if he wants to work for the country’s most powerful senator, he’ll have to keep his eye on the prize. That’s easier said than done when he meets the senator’s daughter, who’s wild, gorgeous, and 100 percent trouble.
Grace Pendleton is the black sheep of her conservative family. Yet while Aaron’s presence reminds her of a past she’d rather forget, something in his eyes keeps drawing her in. Maybe it’s the way his voice turns her molten. Or maybe it’s because deep down inside, the ultra-smooth, polished Aaron Clarkson might be more than even Grace can handle . . .
This was book two in the Clarkson Family Saga. I’m really enjoying this series!! It’s got heart, humor, and some great sexy times!! This is the story of Aaron (the political Clarkson sibling) and his main girl Grace.
If you recall Aaron is gun ho to get to Iowa in order to join back up with the campaign that he was fired from in California. He has big dreams and he is going to make them happen. Regardless of what his farther may have told him in the past. However, some things are easier said than done. And not letting his father’s effect him is one of those things. But then he meets the beautiful Grace and he slowly learns to let go of the past demons and embrace a future with her.
This book had me feeling all kinds of things. I laughed often, and cried into my pillow more than once. Whether I was laughing or crying or somewhere in between, I loved the ride. I recommend this book to anyone looking for a journey of self discovery and the lessons in between.

Tessa Bailey is originally from Carlsbad, California. The day after high school graduation, she packed her yearbook, ripped jeans and laptop, driving cross-country to New York City in under four days.
Her most valuable life experiences were learned thereafter while waitressing at K-Dees, a Manhattan pub owned by her uncle. Inside those four walls, she met her husband, best friend and discovered the magic of classic rock, managing to put herself through Kingsborough Community College and the English program at Pace University at the same time. Several stunted attempts to enter the work force as a journalist followed, but romance writing continued to demand her attention.
She now lives in Long Island, New York with her husband of eight years and four-year-old daughter. Although she is severely sleep-deprived, she is incredibly happy to be living her dream of writing about people falling in love.
