Author Rec: Tessa Bailey
Tessa Bailey has been one of my favorite authors for the last year and a half. And I’m upset I didn’t discover her sooner. One of my fellow bloggers recommended her books but I put off reading her until I meet her at BookCon 2017. After that, I started with her Clarkson series and devoured everything she wrote. She is the Queen of dirty talking heroes, and some heroines tossed in for good measure. Her books are always steamy and raunchy and I love every minute of them. These definitely aren’t your grandma’s romance novels, unless you have a bad-ass 95 year old grandma who reads 50 Shades of Gray, like I do.
I want to give a shout-out to Tessa’s Facebook group, Bailey’s Babes. It’s my absolute favorite facebook group and the ladies are truly lovely (and with dirty minds!)
My Tessa Bailey recommendations:
- Getaway Girl
- Disturbing His Peace
- Worked Up – Love me some Duke!
- Need Me
- Too Beautiful to Break
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 ten years and six-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.
