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…
For the first time he could remember, he didn't know if the controlled part of him would win. Not were Lucy was concerned. It terrified the ever-loving shit out of him.

Lucy Mason's trip back home to New York after getting her Masters Degree at Syracuse is not going like she planned. Her best friend Sasha bowed out and instead of her big brother, Brent coming to pick her up, he sent his best friend, Matt Donovan. A sexy, magnetic cop friend of her brother's that she has never met.  
Lucy has a bit of a reputation for being a nuisance. She made mistakes and caused trouble for her family in the past, but has been trying to do better and  now she is taking life seriously and ready to find a job and give back to the family that has supported her. 

Sparks fly the minute they lay eyes on each other. She has been in a bit of  a dry spell. And Matt easily gets her hot and bothered. She knows enough about him from Brent to know he is too honorable to go after his best friend's troublesome little sister. So she pretends to be her room mate Sasha and they embark on their journey.

Matt is usually the more reserved, socially appropriate guy in his group of cop friends. But under his controlled, quiet, brooding facade lies a more intense and dominant man. He is just full of surprises. Who knew he had this darker, deeper side?  He has certain needs that he tries to keep reigned in. He has walls up and keeps everyone out. His past has marked him and made him insecure and afraid to share. But Lucy seems to know how to push all of his buttons and likes what she sees.

She has always been a little wild and liked the rush, but had to tone it down to finish school. But Matt gives her that thrill. He has control issues. She likes him taking control. He has darker desires. She appreciates them and finds it exciting. He has a hard time sharing and opening up and fears rejection. He does not want to drag her down into his secret shame. But she wants to explore it with him. They drive each other crazy with the push and pull and losing control. Their chemistry is explosive and they are very compatible in the bedroom (or car, or bathroom, or...). And I just loved them together. 

But these two have some serious insecurities and communication issues. On top of the other challenges in their lives. Not to even mention her big deception and big brother/best friend issue. They have to both figure out what they can live with and what they really want. And navigate through all of the land mines just waiting to blow up. 

This book had sexual tension, steam, romance, danger, and drama. I love Tessa Bailey's writing style and this series. They are fast paced, engaging reads that are over way before I am ready to let go. I love all of the characters and their quirks. They are raw, real, unfiltered, and a bit over the top. She writes such fun dirty talking alpha males that are each unique, bossy, demanding, and so very hot and sexy. And her heroines are usually pretty feisty and tough too. I love how she brings the characters back intermittently in each new book. We really got to catch up with Brent and Hayden from Asking for Trouble in this one. I enjoyed getting both points of view especially since these two had such bad communication at times and Matt could run so hot and cold. This was another hot, fun, enjoyable installment in this series.

Thanks to Tessa Bailey and Entangled Publishing for providing me with an arc in exchange for an honest review.
