Protecting What's His (Line of Duty, #1) - Tessa Bailey I love finding an amazing book by pure chance. I particularly love when in doing so, I discover an new and amazing author.

What did I love about this book?


I mean my goodness! It had it all: humor, amazing characters, sexual tension so hot I thought my kindle would catch on fire, super steamy scenes, and some of the best dirty talk I've read in a damn long while! So please excuse me a moment while I take a moment to myself

I can't find enough good things to say about Protecting What's His. It has been a very long time since I've read a book and loved absolutely everything about.

Ginger and her sister Willa had me laughing out loud at times with their banter.

"Pick up the end! I can't carry the whole thing, skunk-vag!"
"Fuck off! You're only using one hand!"
"That's because I'm using the other one to flip you off"
"Well, I can't argue with multitasking."
"You would argue with the pope's mom"
Did he just hear one of them call the other donkey-queef?'

Ginger was an extremely refreshing heroine to read. She was not the typical shy, virginal wallflower. She was outspoken, stood up for herself, and made Derek work for it.

Now as for Derek...oh Derek, I think I found my #1 book boyfriend. I was fanning myself more than once throughout the whole book. I mean the man is just yummy...and the things that he says- oh my!

"Try harder, Derek"
"Point taken. But one more thing." Derek leaned forward, resting his hands on either side of her on the counter, then dipped his head lower. Ginger's mind reeled as he ran his tongue upward in one long lick of her neck. "The longer it takes for me to get between your thighs, the rougher I'm going to be when I finally get there. Understand?"

He is Alpha, demanding, possessive and protective but in a completely endearingly swoon-worthy way.

"How can you be so jealous of other men, Derek, when you know there's only been you?"
"Baby I'm jealous of men who haven't even seen you yet"

And when Ginger and Derek are together...

"Do you feel that, baby? That's your man moving inside you"

The man truly doesn't mince his words

"Listen to me, baby. From the time we walk in the door to my apartment, you wi have less than a minute before I put my c*ck inside you. No foreplay. No kissing. There won't be any time, because you've got me strung so damn tight I can barely thing straight. I need you to keep yourself wet for me on the ride home. Starting now."


So all in all, this was a great book with fantastic characters, humor, and steam; my Holy Trifecta

Eagerly looking forward to future books from this author.
