Just Released + Official 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 received a copy and voluntarily left a review and all opinions are my own.

Already being a huge fan of Eve Dangerfield’s kinky writing and always wanting to try a book by the talented Tessa Bailey, I couldn’t believe my luck when this duo teamed up to write a book that kept me on my toes and salivating from the moment the curious Autumn and cantankerous landlord Blake were introduced. These two kept things boiling hot with their brand of kink in the bedroom and emotions overflowing!

Autumn Reynolds is a girl who takes inquisitive to the next level when her imagination starts running wild about her beast of a land lord. I couldn’t wait to see what happens between them with her sunny disposition and need to be dominated and his dark disposition and even darker desires. Autumn kept me constantly guessing what her next impulsive move would be. I love a heroine that isn’t easy to figure out who keeps me wondering. She is just the breath of fresh air that Blake needs and she lets him know at every turn.

Blake Munroe intrigued me with everything from his sour moods to his rock hard sinewy body. I couldn’t wait to uncover the man underneath the beast like facade and see who Blake really is. I love a hero that is more than the eye can see and I enjoyed every delicious shivering, libido raising moment with “the landlord” as Autumn so affectionately referred to him as. He sent my emotions in a tailspin every time he would use his gruff voice and call Autumn “blondie” when they were role playing and make my heart melt when he called her “fun size”…sigh!

Eve Dangerfield and Tessa Bailey kept me twisted in knots with this unconventional, “no holds barred” love story that takes us to the heights of ecstasy and to the darkened corners of desire. I highly recommend Captivated for a romance that will do just that from beginning to end. I am beyond giddy that these two amazing writers came together to give us such a spellbinding story and I hope that they continue to do so in the future. Give us all your incredible stories and beautifully flawed characters Tessa and Eve…your fans will be waiting!

Tessa Bailey

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
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
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.
