Peek Inside Crashed Out

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 is on temporary hiatus, Sarge is determined to prove to Jasmine that this “ kid” turned into every inch the man she's always needed. But lust is a blinding, insatiable force. And when it crashes, it will take both Sarge and Jasmine down with it...

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 he's 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 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...

The younger man/older woman is a favorite trope of mine and Tessa Bailey has written a winner.

“You think I could stop? I’d sell my fucking soul to watch you come.”

Crashed Out is exactly why I LOVE Tessa Bailey’s books! It’s lusty, funny and filled with lots of real emotion and heart. And an older woman/younger man theme? YES, PLEASE!!

Ms. Bailey really knows how to rock my socks.
I don't typically go for the older woman and younger man trope. Not that I disagree with it, but it just doesn't always work for me. I'm happy to say that wasn't the case here.
Sarge has a permanent position in my book boyfriend file. That mouth... Mmm.

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 an ...more

By Vee December 07, 2015

*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 promise. ...more

Finally a book about a hot cougar. And, of course, it came from the mind of Tessa Bailey.

This book is just another reason why Tessa Bailey is one of my favourite authors. My God. This woman knows how to pack a punch with her smoldering hot characters, who make me fan myself and check if my Kindle isn't overheating like I am.

I received this arc for an honest review..and I loved it. Jasmine is 7 years older than Sarge who she use to babysit. Wasn't sure if I could get on board with that story line. Oh man did I.
