Title: Captivated
Author: Tessa Bailey and Eve Dangerfield
Release Date: June 11, 2018
Secret aspiring comedian Autumn Reynolds is a girl gone...not wild exactly. More like lazy. Since her boyfriend abandoned her in New York City for a bunch of improv groupies she’s had two priorities; sucking the nitrous out of whipped cream cans and making sex comics about her mysterious landlord.

Blake hates people—and sunlight—with good reason. Imagine his surprise when he finds himself lusting after his upstairs tenant, a sunny, Australian people pleaser down on her luck. Turns out his ability to terrify with a single scowl comes with an advantage. Autumn seems to like it. A lot. As evidenced by the prisoner-captive comic Blake was never meant to see. 

As they embark on a three-date arrangement the rules are clear; filthy, ground breaking sex, no feelings or commitment required. When chemistry is this strong, though, attachment follows. As Blake and Autumn attempt to negotiate their New York romance, their prior histories and secret dreams come to the foreground. How long can these polar opposites remain Captivated, when all signs point to disaster?
This book may just be the best darn thing. Tessa Bailey and Eve Dangerfield have created some downright lovable and swoon-freaking-worthy characters. Autumn is quirky, adorable and feisty. Blake is broody, alpha, and holy-crap-HOT. Though they're an unorthodox coupling, their fantasies run wild (literally) until the passion they dream up, finds a home in their hearts outside of their carefully crafted world that was supposed to be an escape for them both. But it gets serious. And it gets downright filthy with mindblowing sex and fantasies, but these two are messy with their feelings. These two can be sweet, dirty, angsty, and anything in between. 

Captivated is a hilariously crafted book, and OH SO SEXY. Like clear the room, send the kids to the grandparents and call it date night sexy. To say I enjoyed the book would be an understatement. I LOVED IT. And I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a super steamy couple ready to tackle a lot of emotions to find their happily ever after. 

Happy Reading!

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 ten years and six-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.

Eve Dangerfield has loved romance novels since she first started swiping her grandmother’s paperbacks. Now she writes her own sexy tales about complex women and gorgeous-but-slightly-tortured men. Her work has been described as ‘the defibrillator contemporary romance needs right now,’ and not by herself, or even her mum, but by OTHER PEOPLE. 

Eve lives in Melbourne with her boy, a bunch of semi-dead plants and a rabbit named Billy. When she's not writing she can be found making a mess.
