ARC provided by publisher in exchange for an honest review Tessa Bailey once again proves to her readers that she can delive 2 too hard for me to handle stars ARC provided per publisher via NetGalleyAny time I can snatch up a Tessa Bailey book I am always ready to one click I was pretty fired up at getting the start of a new series by her as she always delivers the heat Perhaps it was me but I admittedly struggled a bit with this bookThis is a story of finding one s self It is a ourney of a family of 4 siblings with the focus on Rita Clarkson I found the Clarkson s to be uite intriguing albeit somewhat hard to get to know The whole clan of two sisters and two brothers were very odd and vague in description I know there are some deep layers within each of them but their characters came of superficial All four have uniue lives and paths and they are not close as they should be At the passing of their somewhat famous chef they live their lives not inclusive to one another After Rita has her mother s 5 star restaurant in flames a new path must be taken Here comes the family road trip to fulfill a dead mother s wish for them to ump into the icy Atlantic OceanI was completely prepared for a dramatic but fun filled trip across the country to NYC with the Clarkson s and maybe some of that signature Tessa Bailey sex along the way But the very start of the trip the hot mess of a break down set up the precedence for trouble Broken down on the side of the road and BOOMenter a strange but sweet southwestern Jasper and his MC ridin good Samaritan ways Tossing Rita onto the back of his bike and into the small town of Hurley were the story would beginI knew insta lust and attraction would be forefront as that is what I have come to expect with Bailey but honestly Rita and Jasper were a bit odd to me Rita was unaware of who or what she wanted to be and in the heat of wanting to ust forget she wanted to lose herself in Jasper Too bad for her Jasper was on a mission to be something himself His life of the party past and liuor induced sex roles left him with a poor reputation He wants than a good lay describing him Together they bring the sexy into the story with heated talk and foreplay The problem though is the whole dynamic and sense of MORE and urgency that occurs in Baghdad: City of Peace, City of Blood just 72 hoursI really struggled with Jasper and Rita s connection and maybe that is stemming from the fact that I really didn t get their characters either Everything about themust seemed to scratch the surface I cannot even say I have a clear description of Rita and Jasper in my mind Other than their moments of intimacy or like orgasm mania there was very little reason for them to be I suppose you could look at it like Jasper was starting over with his new restaurant and it was a good thing that a chef broke down near his town She needed to get back into the kitchen and he needed than Imagine That! just sex so this was a win win However I still felt like Rita was passing thrushe was a hard nut to crack As for the sibling involvement there is so much to them that is missing and would have made it all realI wish I could really explain it better but in the end I willust chalk it up to me not connecting with any character and not really feeling the story The writing is good as Bailey is solid but I wanted to fall in hard love with this as I did with her previous books Many will fall hard for the uirky Clarkson s but at the end of the day Rita Clarkson and her love Jasperwell they still remain uite obscure to me 4 Hot Stars After their mother an acclaimed Michelin star chef dies the four Clarkson siblings that despite loving each other are not that close decide to fulfil their mother last wish and go on a road trip together This first book in this series following the siblings love life starts with the story of Rita the only daughter who followed her mother steps and is now a chef as well expect that she is one on the verge of a breakdown When their car breaks in a town in the middle of nowhere New Mexico she meets Jasper that for some reason feels instantly drawn to her feeling that se reciprocates Bearing a common passion for food things uickly heat up between them They know their time is short after all Rita is Elena's Conquest just waiting for their car to be fixed They know they are both playing with fire and when you do it you re bound to be burned If you don t know it by now Tessa Bailey is an auto buy author for me If I like the plot I never hesitate before buying one of her books because I know I will not regret This one wasust another prove of that I know that some people will have some trouble connecting with Rita the heroine definitely not with Jasper because he s swoon worthy but b 45 starsBoth Rita and Jasper were amazing characters I really enjoyed reading about their cute romance Usually I can t figure out how you can love someone so uickly but this book shows me it s possible Finding the right path to happinessIt s Mother s Day here in Australia and I managed to sueeze in a little reading in before hubby s alarm went off to get the boys up to come in for the celebrations For a romantic Mum like me it was the perfect start to the day finishing off Too Hot To Handle This little gem is WHY I am a romance reader Some might complain that it was insta love and crazy for a couple to feel so deeply after three days of knowing each other I say it was magic and sweet and I believe that gut instinct can set you on a path that can bring you to happiness See to me it s a path and a pathway can go on and on and on So the insta love might be really insta lust but who s to say that it can t one day be love Shouldn t we all take a gamble if it feels right doesn t put you in danger and you have loved ones who will back you care for you and save you if things go wrong Too Hot To Handle is the start of a pathway for Rita and Jasper and geez it looks promising to be a yellow brick road to happinessRita s life has caught fire and is crumbling before her eyes On national TV the cooking show she was on sees her bow out of the competition when her perfect souffl

Bailey book but still goodReview posted on The Eater of Books blogToo Hot to Handle by Tessa BaileyBook One of the Romancing the Clarksons seriesPublisher Forever Publication Date May 17 2016Rating 4 starsSource eARC from NetGalleyWarning this is an adult book and for the eyes of mature readersSummary from GoodreadsWhen rescue looks like a whole lot of trouble The road trip was definitely a bad idea Having already flamb ed her culinary career beyond recognition Rita Clarkson is now stranded in God Knows Where New Mexico with a busted ass car and her three temperamental siblings who she hasn t seen in years When rescue shows up six feet plus of hot charming sex on a motorcycle Rita s pretty certain she s gone from the frying pan right into the fire Jasper Ellis has a bad boy reputation in this town and he loathes it The moment he sees Rita though Jasper knows he s about to be sorely tempted There s something real between them Something raw And Jasper has only a few days to show Rita that he isn tust for tonight he s foreverWhat I LikedI count Tessa Bailey among my favorite contemporary romance authors I ve read so many of her books say eleven including this one and I don t think I ve rated any of the books less than three stars She writes so uickly And all of her books are steamy and swoony While this new book is probably not a new favorite Bailey book it was definitely satisfying and enjoyable and I can t wait to continue the seriesRita Clarkson s restaurant ust burned down and Rita has ust about had it It was her mother s restaurant and her mother recently died leaving behind a dying wish of her four children doing a Polar Bear Plunge in New York on New Year s Day The Clarkson clan were never close but somehow Rita convinces them to go on a road trip from San Diego to New York over the course of the month starting December 1st Rita could use the break from the stress of well everything But car trouble stalls the gang in Hurley New Mexico where one wickedly charming man helps them with their car and sweeps Rita off her feet But Rita is on a road trip and falling for someone wasn t part of the plan Jasper doesn t want her to leave he needs a fresh start ust as much as she doesThis book is longer than most of Bailey S Books Yet s books yet takes place over several days Jasper and Rita meet fairly uickly into the book I like that the first two chapters are somewhat short yet we learn so much about the Clarkson family Belmont is uiet and stern Rita is stressed about her future in cooking and she is somewhat of the matriarch of the group Aaron is a cold arrogant erk but there is something lovable about him Finally Peggy is a professional shopper who has had a lot of engagements and left a lot of broken heartsRita is so complex and we see this uickly Her mother a cooking genius placed a lot of expectations on Rita Rita wasn t born with her mother s talent but Rita is an extremely good cook Yet she doesn t like the pressure she s felt when cooking So the road trip was a good idea for herJasper is sweet and charming yet a little wicked and arrogant He has sworn off women and hasn t had sex in nearly two years after An Incident He used to be a ladies man and he has the lasting reputation to prove it But Jasper is so much than that and he wants to prove to everyone that he is so much He is intelligent and kind and chivalrous and driven He has a bar and he s opening an eatery Jasper is may be feeling lost but he has a lot going for himJasper and Rita s relationship evolves rapidly Both of them do not open up easily especially Rita One will assume one thing the other will assume another thing and both will end up apologizing I like that they both realize their mistakes as the story goes on versus Jasper constantly being the only one apologizing or vice versaThe romance was very steamy In classic Bailey fashion there were tons of hot encounters between Jasper and Rita I like that despite writing so many romance novels all of Bailey s steamy scenes are pretty different But always fieryI also really like how this book is not ust focused on Jasper and Rita s relationship but also the relationship between the Clarkson siblings Each sibling is so uniue and complicated and dealing with their own mess and misery I can t say I have a favorite Clarkson because I genuinely like them all And I like seeing how their relationships with each other and overall change and grow and improve as the story goes onThe ending is PERFECT I was hoping it would go this way and not the other well it was perfect LoveAnyway overall I really enjoyed this book There are a lot of things to love and a lot of growthdevelopmentemotion that add depth to the story It s not ust a steamy romance novel it s a story of personal growth in both Rita and Jasper and familial growthWhat just a steamy romance novel it s a story of personal growth in both Rita and Jasper and familial growthWhat Did Not LikeI think this has to do with me personally than the book but maybe not who knows I didn t like how fast the romance occurred how fast the feelings developed Lust okay But feelingslove I suppose it s possible but it ust felt very fast to me Why I say this has to do with me personally I ust read a book that pretty much took place over two days in which the hero and heroine meet and fall in love in those two days Chasing Lady Amelia by Maya Rodale in case anyone was interested Great book but the romance felt fast NOT undeveloped but fast If that makes sense That is probably my only complaint though it weighs heavily against the story I like how drawn out the romancesteamy side of things was but realistically the emotional side to this story occurred extremely uicklyWould I Recommend ItI mean I d probably
