Review: Crashed Out by Tessa Bailey

Title: Crashed Out

Author: Tessa Bailey

Synopsis:

His inspiration. His torment. And his temptation…

Jasmine Taveras is the reason Sarge Purcell grabbed his six-string and bailed the hell out of New Jersey four years ago. She’s the fuel for every song he’s ever written—each one laced with bitter, hard-edged, hungry lust. Now, with his hugely successful band on temporary hiatus, Sarge is determined to prove to Jasmine that this “kid” turned into every inch the man she’s always needed…

Men are slim pickings for a single factory girl in Hook, New Jersey…until tall, broad-shouldered hotness walks—or rather storms—into Jasmine’s life. Sarge’s return shouldn’t affect her this way. He’s her best friend’s much younger kid brother, and the kind of rough, gritty, sexiness Jasmine has no right to taste for herself. Even if he lets her.

But lust is a blinding, insatiable force. And when it crashes, it will take both Sarge and Jasmine down with it…

***MY REVIEW***

5 out of 5 stars

I've got to say I have never read a book by this author that I didn't absolutely love and Crashed Out is not an exception. While I was a little hesitant about whether or not I would like this one because I'm usually not the biggest fan of older women dating younger men in my romance but Tessa made me love it!

This book was amazing. I really loved the characters. Sarge and Jasmine were both great characters and their relationship developed beautifully. It was all very steamy because this is a Tessa Bailey book, but it was also very sweet the way Sarge had been in love with Jasmine for years. But while I loved this book to pieces there were a couple of things that happened that annoyed me. While I did say I'm not usually a fan of older women with younger men in romance, Jasmine really annoyed me with how focused she was on that detail even after they were already sleeping with each other. Also, Jasmine's hang-ups about singing anymore. She was so focused on the fact that everyone was going to think she was just using Sarge for his connections that it affected my enjoyment of the book at certain points. But other than that this book really was a great sexy romance with a super satisfying HEA and I can't wait to read the next book in this series!
