Loving her might cost him everything…

Disgraced cop Henrik Vance is having a shit year. Banished to a derelict undercover squad, he’s been tasked with hunting down the daughter of Chicago’s most dangerous criminal. His obsession with saving the beautiful girl destroyed his career. And this time, it might cost his life.

Ailish O’Kelly doesn’t need a hero. She’ll save herself from her father’s violent criminal dynasty, thank you very much. Unfortunately, the sexy as sin cop who crashes her hideout isn’t hearing reason—especially not after the kiss that becomes much more.

His boss wants her as an informant. Ailish wants Henrik to keep whispering filthy things against her skin. But she knows too well the evil they’re up against, and when it comes down to protecting the man who owns her body and soul, she only has one choice…

Now here he was. A man aching for one woman, unable to have her. But kind of hoping she’d show him a little more of that teasing nonetheless. The verdict was in—he’d lost his fucking mind.

This last story of the Crossing the Line series, a spin-off of Tessa Bailey’s very successful Line of Duty series, is a scorchingly hot and suspenseful tale of a disgraced cop and the mafia princess he’s intent on saving.

'Raw Redemption' by Tessa Bailey is book 4 in the "Crossing the Line" series. I have not read the other books yet so for me this was a standalone book.
This is the story of Henrik Vance and Ailish O’Kelly.

Welp that one was HAWT!

Henrik was a dream Tessa Bailey hero. So OTT and yummy! Ailish was refreshing. She had a tough childhood, but was pretty well grounded.

OKAY, so as a cop, Henrik Vance did a very bad thing. A very illegal thing.

You know what I love about Tessa Bailey? Everything. Her writing is engaging, her characters are unique, her romantic pairings are epic, and her love scenes are off-the-charts steamy.
