my review -
First – you really need to read ASSETS before venturing into LIABILITIES. Not knowing what happened prior might really turn into a liability.

After what Bailey had discovered with Kalen’s company – she decided to put some distance between them and go home, but first she had to let him go. What she didn’t expect was for her life to be tangled into another mess once she got home. One thing – there’s Tucker. Her first love, her first kiss, her first everything. He still wanted her, and being away from Kalen made everything just so confusing.

The longer she stayed, the more she realized that the place she called HOME was pretty much different than what she remembered. Deceit lies, and danger are lurking around the corner…

I’m so glad I get to read ASSETS first prior to reading this books, because indeed, it’s necessary. I thought being in a familiar ground surrounded by friends and family would keep her safe. I didn’t know what was more dangerous – the one who was after her because of her job or the people in her so-called community?

Kalen – I missed him in this novel. I wasn’t really THAT fond of Tucker, and I wished that Bailey would be wise enough not to succumb into temptation. Tucker was determined to have her back. Day after day, he would persuade her. I was crossing my fingers, wishing, hoping Kalen would come and drive her away from the place. She should be with KALEN!!!!! But what if Kalen had already moved on? After all, she told him to do so?

Tough decisions.

In this continuation of the series, we are once again entertained by Ms. Dermott not just with the intense sexual chemistry and attraction between the characters – but we are given the ride of our lives with all the thrill, the suspense, and the unexpected twist that Liabilities bring. The adventure and the love affair continues on the third installment of the series – EQUITY.

★Balance Sheet Series Reading Order &Purchase Link★
Warning ~ This book contains adult language and sexual situations. Not suitable for anyone under eighteen. 

Bailey Glicks, an accountant, is all too aware of her asset value. She’s pretty but not beautiful, smart but not a genius, and certainly she thinks she is more than enough for her fiancé. All that changes when she catches his cheating ass in a lie. 

Needing to get away and start anew, she heads to New York to stay with her best friend and former college roommate, Lizzy who has more than enough space to accommodate her. What she didn’t bank on are two things. 

First, Kalen Brinner, a man whose implied wealth and attractiveness on paper, shouldn’t be interested in her. But their combined sexual attraction sparks off like fireworks. Will it be enough to sustain a relationship, especially when circumstance makes one of them appear less than trustworthy? Can they survive the heat or will they combust in the flame of their own passion? 

Second, when the assets in audit she’s working feel like they’ve been tainted with fraud; her supervisor isn’t buying her theory. 

And if she’s wrong about either, both could make her lose big. One her heart. The other her job.

The first part of the novel had already had me panting – WTF.

Bailey Glicks decided to have a party and had her brains f**cked out on her supposed-to-be wedding day after her fiancé cheated on her. What she didn’t expect is for someone who looks like a god would show interest in her.

Kalen Brinner is hot as hell, knows how to push the right buttons, and freakin rich. Now why would he waste time on someone as ordinary as her?

But the sexual chemistry was just too potent to ignore. He always gets what he wants – and he wanted her. TOO MUCH. But will sex be ever be enough to sustain a relationship between two very different people?

To add up to her list of problems, the assets that she has been auditing seemed to have been tainted with fraud – and her supervisor wasn’t buying it.

I like Kalen. He knew what he wanted – and he is ALWAYS determined to pursue it no matter what the cost. He loves women, but once he set his eyes on Bailey, his eyes never wandered anywhere else. HE WAS SO HOT IN and OUT of bed, I would gladly welcome him in mine. (*SWOON*). As for Bailey – okay, she already established SHE WAS NOT THAT KIND OF GIRL. I thought she’d go into a hypocrite-mode and deny everything she has been feeling the moment she saw Kalen. Thank goodness that was not the case. TRUST is definitely an issue between these two, and Kalen as an issue as well with sharing her.

Be ready to get hot and bothered. ASSETS may be short but it’s sexy, and oozing with hotness. Will definitely make your nights a little bit warmer!
