When Roxy, New York resident struggling to make it in the acting world, finds herself with no money and no acting prospects, she does what every girl in her situation does: finds her job.

When Louis sees one gorgeous girls dressed as a bunny at his front door he immediately becomes i ...more
I was gonna try and finish this but this was a waste of my time. My eyes hurt from all the eye rolling! I'm a huge TB fan but I'm sorry this was her worse book to date.
Hero: one kiss turned him from manwhore to wanting more
Heroine: didn't like her (at all)
Romance: insta lust
Banter: felt forced
Humour: tried too hard to be funny
Side characters: annoying (all of them)
Phew glad I got that out my system. Now moving on...
When Louis opens the door and sees a hot bunny on his doorstep, he at first thinks he’s hallucinating. He gets a song of praise for his endowments, and you’d think that make a guy happy, but not so much when i ...more
It was just one cliché after another.... Furthermore, I feel as if I'm suffering from a major case of whiplash. The reader gets jerked back & forth throughout the entire book— the heroine wants the hero, then she cuts him off, then she wants him again, then she cuts him off again. THIS REPETITIVE & TEDIOUS CYCLE CONTINUES FOR 99% OF THE BOOK. It would have been nice if the author had mixed things ...more
Those two are awful together and I cannot see their relationship surviving a year. They are both incapable of using their words in a way that seems excessive even for a romance novel - a genre where nobody ever uses their words (I am obviously exaggerating).
Signs I lost interest in this book:
Skim through steamy scenes
I don’t care for HEA or whatever. *shrug*
Roxy : “I’ve had to work harder to do it on my own. I want to succeed on my own, without any help. And I’m going to.”
“I told you how important it was to do this on my own, and I thought you understood that. Me. You took that goal away from me.”
On the surface, it did sound like she was very independent. But her characterization came across as a woman of believing the worse of other peopl ...more
I started this sometime in 2015 and since it's now 2 ...more
If you in the mood for a HOT/Steamy/Alpha and so much more I recommend you read this Book Now!
So So Good! Can't wait to read Need Me
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.”
And that is our meet cute. And what a funny scene it was. Roxy is a struggling actress, and in order to procure some extra money, she takes a job as...more
This book and I pretty much hit it off right from the very first page. Chase Me has the right amount of charm, humor and banter--not too mention sizzling chemistry--between the main characters that I just knew right from reading that very first page, I was in love.
Unfortunately, that love that I was starting to feel was short-lived. The female protagonist, Roxy, kept going in circles regarding her feelings toward the guy, Louis, that it was enough to make a woman go mad with dizzines ...more
Overall, I really enjoyed this one. The conflict is a little predictable and it has a pretty abrupt ending - but I'd recommend this one. I really hope the heroine's roommates get books.
Loved this story. My only complaint, it wasn't long enough. No seriously, I felt like it needed another 100 pages and it would've been golden. The ending was rushed. But all the other stuff, the beginning and middle, was pure awesomeness. Seriously, Tessa Bailey can write funny, attentive, entertaining and smut all nicely into one book. This was a great beginning to a new series.
As much as this was about both of them growing and becoming better versions of themsel ...more
“Please, oh keeper of the golden penis, let me worship at your flawless phallus.”
Now that was a lot of fun!
I almost didn’t read Chase Me, because I’m kind of getting burned-out on this genre. Thank goodness I didn’t miss this one, though. It’s a really quick read that’s sweet, sexy and full of laughs. The humor is the main thing that won me over, but there are many other aspects that helped too.
We don’t exactly get off on a very good foot with Louis. I mean, c’mon, Roxy is there to deliver a ...more
Seriously guys, if you're a fan of quick sexy romances and haven't tried any Tessa Bailey books, then you're missing out. She's one of those authors I always turn to when I'm in the mood for a lighter read that can set my e-reader on fire. With Chase Me, she once again crafted such a story. As soon as I read that first scene in Chase Me and was dying of laughter, I knew I was in for one helluva of a ride. Chase Me has to be one of Tessa's funniest book and I loved how she was able to blend in hu ...more
How much did I love this book? So much, in fact, that I actually may have considered dressing up in a pink bunny suit and writing a song about it. Okay, maybe I wouldn’t go that far, but I did really, really enjoy it.
From the very first meeting between Roxy and Louis, their chemistry sizzled off the page, and it only grew as the story went on. Louis earned a Top Spot in the BBHOF (book boyfriend hall of fame) for sure. Not only for his dirty, delicious mouth, but because he was a sweetheart to b ...more
I liked how this story played out and I loved both main characters.
Their banter and relationship was great! Loved how witty every scene was. Tessa Bailey I'll be seeing you and your books in the near future.
Sorry. Please don't chase me ala-angry mob style with torches and pitchforks, but I just couldn't bear to read another line without rolling my eyes in a perfectly irritable 360 degrees. Yep. Sorry, this book was definitely not up in my alley.
