Indecent Exposure (The Academy, #2)
Is there a problem, Officer? Jack Garrett isn’t a police officer yet, but there’s already an emergency. His new firearms instructor—the one who just dropped every jaw in the academy gym—is the same sexy Irish stranger Jack locked lips with last night. The Olympic gold medalist and expert markswoman is now officially off-limits, but Jack’s never cared much for rules . . .Katie McCoy’s been cooped up in a shooting range for too long. A wild love affair is just what she needs to let loose, though she never imagined it would be with her smokin’ hot trainee. She cannot get involved with Jack—but a quick fling? Perfect. Falling hard for a charismatic recruit with an equal amount of sex appeal and secrets? Bloody stupid.Jack’s charmed the pants off plenty of women (literally), yet few have ever looked beyond his perfect surface. Until Katie. He’ll do anything to keep her in his life . . . except tell her about his past. But a tiny lie of omission never hurt anyone, right?

    I adore this series so much!! It's sweet, hilarious, and SO hot. Jack and Katie's heartfelt story had just the right amount of angst to balance out the light-heartedness. Review to come!!Thanks to the publisher for generously providing me an ARC to review.

    Tessa Bailey’s ‘The Academy’ series is shaping out to be quite a gem of all her books. ‘Indecent exposure’ is engaging, fun, appropriately angsty when the occasion calls for it and more emotionally resonant than the first book in the series. A deadbeat loser was what I’d thought of Jack Garrett and I was nothing but sceptical when Bailey insisted on writing his HEA. But Bailey’s rather insightful articulation of Jack’s issues, emotions and personal demons deserve some applause here, as she makes Tessa Bailey’s ‘The Academy’ series is shaping out to be quite a gem of all her books. ‘Indecent exposure’ is engaging, fun, appropriately angsty when the occasion calls for it and more emotionally resonant than the first book in the series. A deadbeat loser was what I’d thought of Jack Garrett and I was nothing but sceptical when Bailey insisted on writing his HEA. But Bailey’s rather insightful articulation of Jack’s issues, emotions and personal demons deserve some applause here, as she makes him a sympathetic hero whose upbringing and past explains—though doesn’t necessarily excuse—the way he always behaves. Just as Jack is the drifter with no ambition in life, Katie McCoy’s upbringing has been the exact, regimented opposite with high after high and prize after prize. In many ways, Jack and Katie are complete opposites and their coming together is probably nothing short of a miracle save for Katie’s honesty, openness and compassion which makes Jack need to level with her. It isn't a perfect read (the rushed ending was disappointing) but 'Indecent Exposure' is making me think that 'The Academy' is really one of the standout series that I shouldn't pass on.*Full review to come.*ARC by Edelweiss and the publisher(grateful as always, mind)

Her days are on the job providing weapons training to police recruits. Her nights? Trying like hell to resist a gorgeous, yet complicated, recruit who doles out killer orgasms and has an aversion to responsibility.Katie was an awesome heroine. She's smart, a world class markswoman--how cool is that?--and is a bit obsessed with old mob hits. It was easy falling for her as she broke out of her sheltered life and started finding herself. And Jake. Sexy as all hell, charming and...heading towards loser central. He takes nothing seriously and relies a bit too much on alcohol. So I was pretty wary over him when we first met. But I ended up falling for him completely as he pulled his shit together, dealt with his past and realized he was worth more than just a hard ride. He turned out to be a very interesting hero.Chemistry, sass, some good filthy fun. Oh, yeah. Things got good and dirty with these two. I enjoyed watching them explore the city and each other. It was nice seeing them pull strength from each other to deal with some hard bits in their lives, too. All in all, I laughed, sighed, fanned myself a few times-- because, seriously, filthy fun!-- and closed Indecent Exposure with a smile on my face. Bailey gives good book. Mmhm. Sure does.

    This book is about soulmates. This book is about personal growth. It's about finding that one person on the entire planet that understands you on such a fundamental level that it's impossible to ignore. The connection changes you the second you come into contact with that person. This book is powerful. It handles issues that are hard and uncomfortable at times, but wow how the journey is rewarding. The heart and emotion Tessa Bailey put into this story gave me tingles. Jack Garrett. Playboy extr This book is about soulmates. This book is about personal growth. It's about finding that one person on the entire planet that understands you on such a fundamental level that it's impossible to ignore. The connection changes you the second you come into contact with that person. This book is powerful. It handles issues that are hard and uncomfortable at times, but wow how the journey is rewarding. The heart and emotion Tessa Bailey put into this story gave me tingles. Jack Garrett. Playboy extraordinaire with a penchant for alcohol and not taking life too seriously. He's just out to have a good time and take life as it comes. He's dragged kicking and screaming to join the police academy by his best friend Danika after losing a bet. After being raised in a brothel he's basically in it for the paycheck so he can help take care of his mom now. She's been out of that life for a while, but he still wants to give back anyway he can. He still battles many unpleasant memories from his childhood, so keeping a constant buzz seems to help dull his mind. While on his way to a favorite bar he finds a gorgeous redhead peeking in the window. When she turns her pretty blue eyes on him he knows he'll never be the same. Katie McCoy is visiting the States from Ireland for two weeks on the International Police Exchange Program, and she's the new arms instructor for the police academy trainees. She's an Olympic gold medalist and her life has been all work and no play for years. While in New York she has a list of adventures she'd like to accomplish. Things she's never had the time or freedom to do before. While checking off item number one on her list she meets a man so handsome and charismatic he takes her breath away. Jack Garrett. Something about him has her captivated. He helps her complete her first item, and they also share a steamy kiss. When she sees that the sexy guy she kissed the night before is under her instruction at the academy, she's torn on what she should do (cut off all personal interaction) and what her instincts are telling her (dig deeper and get to know this complicated man). As the two spend more time together Jack learns that Katie has her own reasons for being hesitant to get involved with him. From all outward appearances their life struggles contradict 100%, and she doesn't see how those issues can be overcome. Jack refuses to give up though. He's finally found that one person who sees through the superficial mask he shows the world, and he won't give her up without a fight. I just wanted to keep reading about this couple long after the book ended. I was so connected to them, and I loved watching their journeys line up and come together. Their soul deep yearning for each other was magical. I also love the variety of subject matter in this series. It had such a different tone from Charlie and Ever in book one. I really recommend this story!

This book was naughty, heart-wrenching, silly, and dramatic… everything you want out of a romance novel and more. Indecent Exposure caught me up in its web from the very first word and held me captivated the entire time.There is nothing more satisfying than feeling as though you’re reading someone’s autobiography. Reading Jack’s chapters was an emotional experience for me. I could feel the pain radiating straight off the pages and into my chest and it was a wholly uncomfortable experience of which I loved every minute. I don’t want to get into spoilers (I pride myself on keeping those out of my reviews) but Jack’s situation was incredibly personal for me, as I’m sure it will be for many people, and I loved that there was an author brave enough to put that experience to paper.Katie was an adorable character with some unique personality traits that had me laughing out loud frequently throughout this novel. She was a delightful person and I never had any reason to wonder why Jack was falling so madly in love with her. In fact, I was doing a little of the same.The relationship between Jack and Katie was a fabulous ride of ups and downs that felt just the right amount of dramatic. No drama=bad. Too much drama=stressful. You know how it is. Their love for one another was something special and I loved that I was able to be a part of it if only for a short time.The first book in the series Disorderly Conduct was a great read—you can read my review here—but Indecent Exposure blew it out of the water and I’m anticipating the third book, Disturbing His Peace, in the series to be the best of all. The worst thing about my life right now is that I can’t read it yet. I consider myself the luckiest person in the world to have discovered Tessa Bailey and I hope that others will take this as a sign to pick up her books.

    So after reading the first book in this series I was skeptical since it wasn't my favorite and usually a Tessa Bailey book is a guaranteed wonderful romance and read for me. That being said, I saw this on Edelweiss and of course downloaded it and read immediately. I'm so glad I did because this was a fantastic read with a new hero who had some serious issues and they were actually handled with not too many bad decisions or untruths to the heroine. Usually when the main characters have secrets, t So after reading the first book in this series I was skeptical since it wasn't my favorite and usually a Tessa Bailey book is a guaranteed wonderful romance and read for me. That being said, I saw this on Edelweiss and of course downloaded it and read immediately. I'm so glad I did because this was a fantastic read with a new hero who had some serious issues and they were actually handled with not too many bad decisions or untruths to the heroine. Usually when the main characters have secrets, they hide them until the very end when they come out in some way that hurts everyone, but not this time. How refreshing!I loved Jack and Katie and their story. Jack was complicated, but his love for Katie helped him come to terms with his past and made him a better person. Their interactions were HOT, their love was real, and their parts in each other's lives was fun. That Katie was an Olympic medalist and Jack's arms instructor was a great plot point and Katie's loss of her brother with Jack's drinking was also something that they could deal with together. Overall, I really enjoyed this and can't wait to read about Greer and Danika!

    Indecent Exposure is a prime example of how I think a New Adult genre book should be composed. When I think of New Adult & College books, I expect to feel hopeful for love or the chance of falling in love, almost still like you're in high school. When you read it, you want to feel like the characters are mature enough to be confident or at least responsible in their lives as if they are finally beginning their life as an adult.

    4.5 stars. Another fantastic read from Tessa Bailey. I am loving this series and I did not want to put this book down at all. Loved the chemistry between Katie and Jack. My one concern is I felt at time that things felt a bit rushed but overall I couldn't get enough. I'm dying to read the next book in the series.
