5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Hometown Story with Some Heat You Won't Forget!!! 14 June 2017

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Tessa Bailey quickly became one of my favorite authors when I was introduced to her books about two years ago. I have thoroughly enjoyed every single book of hers that I read. But I have to be honest and say that this novella is probably by far my favorite from her.

Too Close To Call is part of the 1,001 Dark Nights stories and her book features Kyler, whom we met in the third book of Tessa' Romancing the Clarksons series. He's a sweet, good ol' country boy with a huge future in football. But none of that matters without his high school sweetheart, Bree; the high school sweetheart who broke his heart when she ended things right as he went away for college.

Tessa wrote these characters perfectly. Their mannerisms, the way they talk, how they interact with in their hometown, it just makes the story all the more real. I could so easily picture everything as if I was watching this book play out before. That's what helped me love this book all the more. When I met Kyler in Too Hard To Forget, I was praying that he would get some sort of story. And Tessa melted my heart with this book.

Kyler and Bree's story is one that know has happened before in real life. It's real, raw and natural and everything played out beautifully. I love these two characters - they are strong individually but together, they are force to be reckoned with. Oh and don't let me sweet and saccharine review fool you - these two get pretty damn hot and heavy. And Kyler shocked me with his naughty mouth.

Too Close To Call is that sweet, hometown story that you want to get lost in. You will find yourself routing for their HEA and feeling a little hot too when these stop holding back.
5.0 out of 5 stars Tessa is the queen of sexy, dirty talking heroes, who are still super romantic and swoony. 14 June 2017

Tessa is the queen of sexy, dirty talking heroes, who are still super romantic and swoony. Kyler Tate fit this description perfectly.

We first met Kyler Tate in book 3 of the Romancing the Clarksons series, Too Hard to Forget. He was an All-American college football star on Coach Elliott Brooks' team. Elliott was the hero of Book 3, and there was a big side plot about Kyler's family losing their family farm in Indiana, and how Coach and Peggy Clarkson worked together to help keep it from happening. Kyler really made a big impression on me, and I was so looking forward to his story. Kyler has been in love with the same girl since middle school, Bree Justice. But, in a shocking act right after senior prom, she breaks his heart and tells him she can't leave their small town, and that she won't be following him to college in Cincinnati. So, he goes on his own. But, his heart is still broken, and he still loves her. It's been 4 years, and when he gets drafted to a pro team in L.A., he knows that he can't go without her, so he goes back to his hometown to win her back.

Bree Justice is studying to be a veterinarian, and follow in her dad's family business. She loves her small town, and simple life, and she won't abandon her father and younger sister there for something more, the way her mother did. Every time Kyler comes back into town, she hides in her house the whole time to avoid seeing him. She knows that she's still not over him, and it hurts her to see him now, so she hides. But, this time, he comes into town unexpectedly and she runs into him at the diner. She is shocked by her reaction to him, and he catches her off guard. But, she has no idea what he has in store for them.

This was the sweetest, most romantic story, while still keeping with Tessa's dirty talking alpha style, and her heartfelt characters and relationships. Kyler was an amazing man. He knew what he wanted, and he wasn't leaving without getting it. He knows Bree better than anyone, so he knew she'd be skittish, and wouldn't want to be around him unless he forced the issue. They constantly challenge each other, and he loves her determination and drive. She realizes that Ky is still the one for her, but she is terrified by that prospect, as she still has no intention of leaving their small town. She had a lot of issues to overcome in this story, and I really liked the way it played out. This was a novella, so the pace was quick but it totally worked.

These characters were magic, and their love story made me swoon like whoa. Ky and Bree were a fantastic couple, and I loved the good they brought out in each other. I love the way they talked to each other, and how their shared history informed their present so much. There really is nothing like first (and last!) love. Their families were great side characters, as was Bree's best friend. She was hilarious. I truly enjoyed this book, and I am not so patiently awaiting the final book the Clarksons series! Belmont!!
5.0 out of 5 stars I love a good second chance romance and boy 14 June 2017

Too Close To Call is part of Tessa Bailey's Romancing the Clarksons series as well as the 10th novella in the 2017 1,001 Dark Nights lineup and holy moly, I can't even tell you how much I lover Kyler and Bree's story.

First, I've gotta start this review with a confession: I totally embarrassed myself on an airplane while reading this book. True story. But I'll get to that in a minute...

So we met Kyler briefly in a previous book and I knew there was something special about this guy and I knew when Tessa said she was writing him in this novella it was going to be damn special. Well, it was. All that and a bag of chips kind of special. I love a good second chance romance and boy, was this a doozy! These two characters are so incredible. Their past and their present are both equally complicated and simple at the same time. Complicated when you overthink all of the little things but simple when you focus on the one thing that matters most: their love for each other. I totally got why Bree was afraid to leave the small town and her family. I understood that she thought it was better to let Kyler go off and pursue his dreams alone. My heart broke for her but I understood why she did it. I also understood Kyler's need to have her back and never being able to let go of their past. She was too much a part of him...and vice versa. What all of that leads to is an emotion and heat packed story that I devoured on my flight. Oh yeah, getting back to that. So, the ending of this book was so..damn...good. Like, have a good cry, keep reading through the good cry, get to the amazing turning point, put down your kindle, close your eyes, and fist pump in the air and say "YES!" in a sort of not quiet whisper...all of which I did on the airplane. While wearing headphones. So I was probably a teeny bit louder than I should have been. Oh well! That's just what happens with a Tessa book!

Thank you, Tessa, for another ridiculously awesome book. I loved Kyler and Bree so much!

I got most of the things that I want from a Tessa Bailey story and in fact what I want from most romance stories.

The hero does the chasing and the heroine lets him. Check. Kyler had to work at convincing Bree to be with him. She was not a doormat and did not readily give into him.

I want a romance story to include good smex scenes. Check. The sexual tension between Kyler and Bree built up and resulted in good sexy times.

I wanted a faithful hero. Check. Kyler and Bree, childhood sweethearts, were each others one and onlys. The were faithful to each other even during a 4 year separation. I loved both of them for that.

Decent ending. Check. Yes the story included one with that had an epilogue.

Protective, possessive and jealous hero. Well... Kyler was possessive and protective but tried to rise above being jealous because he thought that Bree would not react well to him being jealous. So while he felt jealousy but sadly did show it much. For me the problem is that I read this author's books because her heroes tend to be uber jealous and possessive. Therefore I have an expectation that they will be that way and when they are not I am disappointed. If anything Bree showed her jealously. When she heard that women were looking at Kyler while he was working out like he was a dessert and was told one was going to hit on him she ran over to where he was at and made it clear that he was with her.
5.0 out of 5 stars Easy, fun, hot and sweet story 14 June 2017

Kyle is coming back to his hometown with only on purpose and that is to get Bree to be his wife and come with him when he goes on with his pro career.

This was one of the sweetest second chance story I ever read, and Kyle and Bree are so emotionally connected to each other that I cried for them and the years they where apart. Then again the years apart was maybe good for them because they progressed in to adulthood with some life experiences they wouldn't have had together.

Kyle is a the sweetest gentleman even when he was a young boy and I liked that we get to look back on their relationship. Bree obviously felt protected and loved by him back then and I think the feelings haven't chanced a bit.

When this author releases a book I know I will find some sentences that is worth marking so here it is:

"Her heart wouldn’t let her rest, though. No, it walked right upstairs to her brain and knocked on the door, tapping its foot until it was acknowledged."

"Going to take off my jeans and wear you instead."

The chemistry between Kyle and Bree is going on throughout the whole story and the love scenes are intense and emotional in a sweet and genuine way. And still she manages to make them sizzling hot 🔥

This was a easy, fun, hot, sweet story and well earned 5 stars ✨
