Review – Too Close To Call by Tessa Bailey

Review:

Ok.  Too Close To Call definitely falls in the “New Adult” category, which is something I rarely read.  Mostly because I have a hard time relating to the maturity level of the characters in the books.  However, Tessa Bailey has a winner with this book!  I found myself pulled into a story that would normally never appeal to me and enjoying ever second of it.  From the moment Kyler realizes his heart was left back in his hometown to the very satisfying ending, I was enraptured, not only by the sweet and playful side of Kyler, but by the stoic but passionate side of Bree.  Kyler is great…a young man on the cusp of his burgeoning career but with the mindset of a mature man.  He knows what he wants and he does everything in his power to make that so.  Bree is his everything.  Bree herself knows that Kyler was the love of her life but she gave him up so he could have bigger and better things than she wanted for herself.  She never wanted to leave home and doesn’t crave attention or fame.  So imagine her surprise when Kyler swoops back into town, determined to win her heart all over again.  Their cat-and-mouse chase is both titillating and romantic.  Truly, both of these characters were amazing.  Every facet of their relationship was wonderful.  The sex scenes were not over-the-top nor did they take over the story, which sometimes happens in novellas.  This was the perfect blend of romance and eroticism with plenty of backstory to make you feel like you have been with them from the very beginning of their journey.  The ending was superbly written and left me both wanting to know more 10 years into their future and being completely satisfied.  Overall, I was thoroughly entertained and engaged from beginning to end.  This book is perfect for lovers of second-chance romance and new-adult romance.  4.5 stars.

About TOO CLOSE TO CALL:

All-American wide receiver Kyler Tate’s life is about to change. A fairytale college career skyrocketed him to the NFL draft. Adoration and opportunity are thrown in his direction wherever he goes, thanks to being chosen in the first round by the Los Angeles Rage.

None of the accolades mean anything, though, without his high school sweetheart, Bree Justice, by his side. Four years ago, she walked away from Kyler, choosing a quiet life over the flash and notoriety his career would someday bring.

Now he’s back in their Indiana hometown, refusing to leave for Los Angeles without her. Demanding she give their life together a shot. Her heart never stopped bleeding for the love of her life, but Bree’s decision was final. Too bad their wild attraction has only been amplified by their separation, and Kyler won’t quit until Bree is wearing his ring.

About Tessa Bailey:

Tessa Bailey is originally from Carlsbad, California. The day after high school graduation, she packed her yearbook, ripped jeans and laptop, driving cross-country to New York City in under four days.

 

Her most valuable life experiences were learned thereafter while waitressing at K-Dees, a Manhattan pub owned by her uncle. Inside those four walls, she met her husband, best friend and discovered the magic of classic rock, managing to put herself through Kingsborough Community College and the English program at Pace University at the same time. Several stunted attempts to enter the work force as a journalist followed, but romance writing continued to demand her attention.

She now lives in Long Island, New York with her husband of eight years and four-year-old daughter. Although she is severely sleep-deprived, she is incredibly happy to be living her dream of writing about people falling in love.
