New Release, Book Review | Captivated by Tessa Bailey & Eve Dangerfield

Title: Captivated
Authors: Tessa Bailey & Eve Dangerfield
Genre: Contemporary Romance
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?

I love them both. I love their quirks and imperfections, even their not-so-perfect past. Autumn was just dump by her ex-boyfriend. The sole reason why she moved to New York in the first place. Now, with her working visa looming on a deadline, her parents wanting her to come home, and a land lord who suddenly saw what he shouldn't have seen in the first place - her life was sort of in a limbo.

Blake has an awful past, not to mention, he still has a reminder of it through his bad leg. He was content living in his own, doing his work in silence and just merely living in solitude when this girl came into his life. And suddenly, he wanted more.

Problem is: would he be brave enough to allow him to her life? Would he be brave enough to ask her to stay?

I finished this book in one sitting, and enjoyed reading about the funny Australian (whose accent I can hear inside my head), Autumn and the New Yorker recluse, Blake. They were so different, and yet they complemented each other. What happens when the outgoing, cheerful Australian inserts herself into the hermit's life? Chaos. One sweet, steamy, oh-so-beautiful chaos that would make you swoon.

This book reminds me of beauty and the beast - my favorite old-time fairytale. Captivate will captivate you, make you hooked through its pages, and make you ache in the worse and best ways there is.


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 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 
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.
