Falling for a con man is the most dangerous game of all…
Con artist Austin Shaw’s been in disguise so long he’s not sure where his fake identities end and he begins. Now that he’s been strong-armed into working for a specialized undercover unit working with the Chicago police—criminals with unique “skills”—the last thing he needs is to risk his iron control. Especially when it comes to a certain stunningly sexy hacker who tempts him with every look of disdain.
Polly Banks will never, ever trust a con man. On the trail of a ruthless crook who destroyed the only family she’s ever known, Polly is unnerved by the shadow who follows her every move. The one who makes her pulse pound and breath short with lust. Austin. He’s infuriating, enigmatic, and pure sex appeal, and she’s determined to resist him.
But an untrustworthy man of disguise can become anyone he wants…including a man that Polly must trust if she’s to escape their dangerous game alive.
ARC provided by Author/Publisher for honest review.
Sadly, this is the first book in the Crossing the Line series. I’m thoroughly disappointed with myself. I’m a huge lover of Tessa Bailey and the fact that I’ve not read these books yet is sacrilegious. I will be going back and reading the other books, it’ll be impossible to not go back and read them now.
This series has an exciting mix of criminals working for the Chicago PD in order to avoid jail time. Austin is a con-artist, and a darn good one. Polly is a hacker with nothing but revenge on her mind. The pair are partners in their misfit team of crooks. They both have an undeniable attraction toward the other, but Polly remains aloof and prickly towards Austin.
I love Austin. The give no f**ks attitude façade he presented while inside he was almost desperate for someone to see the real him made him a puzzle worth figuring out. Polly was a criminal, but was a Robin Hood of sorts. She loathes con-artists and Austin falls perfecting into that umbrella, but the attraction sizzles and resistance becomes futile.
Holy moly. Austin is so sizzling hot he burns up the pages. I’m a huge fan of strong alpha men. I love when they are take charge in the bedroom, but the fact that Austin gave Polly what she needed by relinquishing control was painfully sexy. Their compatibility made their story so much more than I expected. Bailey did a phenomenal job of giving her alpha man the ability to submit and never be diminished during those moments. His dirty mouth and how he begged — how he told Polly exactly how he wanted to ravage her — serve her pleasure — wow.
Boiling Point is full of suspense and laced with so much sexual tension you’ll be begging for release as thoroughly as Austin. Another must read from Tessa Bailey.
