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.

My thoughts: 

So SO good! I am officially obsessed with Tessa Bailey's writing and will read EVERYTHING from her that I can get my hands on. This is a five wine glasses, will-read-over-and-over again, Top Read of 2017 for me. Kyler is EVERYTHING! And these 1001 Dark Nights novellas get me every time - they are the perfect way to get an introduction to an author's writing or world. Too Close To Call is just PERFECT - a second chance romance with some sports romance aspects with SO MUCH HEART and SOUL!! I found myself close to tears several times, just because of all of the real emotions injected into the saga that is Kyler and Bree's love story. From the very beginning, we can sense the epicness that is Kyler's love for Bree and watching him fight for her and them is such a beautiful experience. And the steamy bits - AHHHH! They were HAWT for sure - but the depth of emotion that went along with them... You weren't reading sex scenes; they are LOVE scenes. I can't rave enough about, or adequately articulate how much I love this book. It gets all the stars all the wine glasses - EVERYTHING! Seriously, go get it now!!!!

Excerpt: 




“Uh...” She gave up pretending to breathe normally, her neck ceasing to support her head. “Ky, please...” 

And then she felt it. Tiny bites along the insides of her thighs, branding her through the cotton leggings. Slow, precise, just enough pressure. Commanding her neck to play ball, Bree looked down to find Kyler’s eyelids at half mast, his white teeth sinking in every couple inches, his own chest and stomach shuddering in and out, his nipples in tight points. At the sight, the walls of Bree’s core constricted and released with enough force to send a rattling gasp flying from her mouth. 

“Kyler.”


“Bree?”


“Just...”


“Yeah.” 

His double grip beneath her knees vanished, but before her legs could fall, Kyler was inserting his hips to catch them. One arm snaked around the base of her spine, sliding her forward and out of the machine...and then there she was. Legs wrapped around her ex-boyfriend’s waist, heart pounding, moisture pooled between her thighs, their mouths separated only by a matter of an inch. 

“You wore that cologne on purpose,” she breathed. “Admit it.”


His grin flashed. “Guilty as charged and unrepentant as a sinner.”


Her gasp only widened his smile. “Bragging about sinning now, are you, Kyler?” 

“You say my name all shaken up and sexy like that when you want me to kiss your pretty mouth.” Hunger made his tone sound like two knives sharpening each other. “I reckon nothing has changed.”

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.
