She's gone rogue.
Seraphina Newsom isn't looking for vengeance…she wants justice. Three years ago, Sera's brother was ruthlessly gunned down by one of Brooklyn's most dangerous mob kingpins. The investigation has stalled out, deemed "too dangerous" by the police commissioner. So to track down the evidence she needs to take down her brother's killer, Sera turns in her hospital scrubs, joins the NYPD, and goes undercover. Unsanctioned. Alone.
He'll live to keep her safe.
With his father behind bars, Bowen Driscol has reluctantly taken over his family's sprawling South Brooklyn crime operation. New York's finest have other plans. By threatening the safety of his sister, they "convince" Bowen to extricate a rogue cop who's in over her head. But when he meets Sera and feels that deep, damning shiver of desire course through him, Bowen knows there's only one way to keep her safe without blowing either of their covers…by claiming her as his own.
Each book in the Crossing the Lines series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order.

A Pulse-Pounding & All-Consuming Affair
4/4/5 Stars | White-Hot Steam
Darker and dicier than Bailey’s previous novels, RISKING IT ALL is no meet-cute—leads-to—easy HEA. Set in NYC’s grittiest neighborhood, teeming with criminality and imminent violence, Sera and Bowen’s tortured hearts collide inciting a pulse-pounding and all-consuming affair that commands your full attention.
Equal parts blissful pleasure and shattering heartbreak, I was transfixed by this sinner and saint's perilous path to love. Deftly drawn, Sera and Bowen’s vivid drama lives and breathes and shouts in pure ecstasy. I found myself moved not only by their uncommon chemistry and enviable passion but by the stellar characters themselves. Sera and Bowen’s individual complexities, differences, phantoms and foibles made for one of the more compelling matches that I’ve encountered in a long time.
Bowen and Sera’s exceptional romance is testament to Tessa Bailey’s incomparable talent as well as a glittering addition to my latest series obsession, The Crossing the Line Series. I can’t wait until UP IN SMOKE, Connor and Erin’s story, is unleashed upon us! June 23rd can’t come soon enough!
Bottom Line: Read this book!
