His inspiration. His torment. And his temptation…
Jasmine Taveras is the reason Sarge Purcell grabbed his six-string and bailed the hell out of New Jersey four years ago. She’s the fuel for every song he’s ever written—each one laced with bitter, hard-edged, hungry lust. Now, with his hugely successful band on temporary hiatus, Sarge is determined to prove to Jasmine that this “kid” turned into every inch the man she’s always needed…
Men are slim pickings for a single factory girl in Hook, New Jersey…until tall, broad-shouldered hotness walks—or rather storms—into Jasmine’s life. Sarge’s return shouldn’t affect her this way. He’s her best friend’s much younger kid brother, and the kind of rough, gritty, sexiness Jasmine has no right to taste for herself. Even if he lets her.
But lust is a blinding, insatiable force. And when it crashes, it will take both Sarge and Jasmine down with it…

In trademark Tessa Bailey style, the dirty talking, fast rocking Sarge is on hiatus from his very successful band to regroup and claim the woman who has eluded him for years. She's his older sister's best friend, his ex babysitter, and the star of many fantasies. But that was then and this is now... ...more
*3.5* It's definitely a guilty pleasure read, and would have rated it higher just for it if I could wrap around my head that Sarge is an experienced dirty-talker at the age of 22. I liked both characters enough but I couldn't say the story pulled me in although the beginning showed a lot of promi... ...more

Tessa Bailey can write just about anything. ANYTHING and it will be a instant hit. Her crown as the Queen of Dirty Talking remains intact. Crashed Out is a Bailey signature but she turned up the spiciness, which tells you A LOT if you are truly a Tessa Bailey fan.
