Who would have thought that I would enjoy reading a contemporary romance? Well, I just stuck my proverbial foot in my mouth because I LOVED Disorderly Conduct!
Please DO NOT judge this book by its extremely cheesy cover because this book is really worth reading!
Picture this, a police recruit who meets a girl at a bar and she propositions him into a relationship of convenience. Basically a booty call. Our heroine, Ever Carmichael is deathly afraid of having a serious relationship and she had a thirty-day “relationship” rule. Charlie, on the other hand, doesn’t want a serious relationship and he goes along with this plan. Until Ever says she wants a serious relationship and ends their affair.
This is where the romance actually starts. And also, becomes a little iffy. Charlie actually sabotages Ever’s dates and does something that is obviously illegal! And to think, he is a police recruit! What upset me, though is that it felt like it was a prank! In fact, Charlier asked help from his two best friends who are also police recruits.
That being said, I still enjoyed the romance. As much as Ever wanted to end her relationship with Charlie, she is still obviously very attracted to him and actually wants to have a serious relationship with him. So despite that, I thought Charlie redeemed himself and in the end, won Ever (and me) over.
I also want to say that this was an extremely hot romance! This is a fair warning for those who don’t like them THAT hot.
This book is written in Ever and Charlie’s POV and is in the first person narration. This is something that I don’t see a lot in adult romances, so it was a little refreshing.
This is my very first Tessa Bailey book and this won’t be my last! I already have the second book in the series, Indecent Exposure which features Jack, Charlie’s friend.
If you are in want of a steamy (and horny) read, this is the perfect book for you!

What do you think about heroes who do something that is illegal? Do you think that they deserve a second chance? What would it take to redeem them?

I am glad that you enjoyed this one, and that you found a new genre to love. I have struggled with Tessa Bailey in the past, and there have been quite a few mixed reviews, but you just convinced me I need to try this one.
