Too Hard to Forget by Tessa Bailey…Jillian’s Review In Short



This time, she’s calling the shots.

Peggy Clarkson is returning to her alma mater with one goal in mind: confront Elliott Brooks, the man who ruined her for all others, and remind him of what he’s been missing. Even after three years, seeing him again is like a punch in the gut, but Peggy’s determined to stick to her plan. Maybe then, once she has the upper hand, she’ll finally be able to move on.

In the years since Peggy left Cincinnati, Elliott has kept his focus on football. No distractions and no complications. But when Peggy walks back onto his practice field and into his life, he knows she could unravel everything in his carefully controlled world. Because the girl who was hard to forget is now a woman impossible to resist.


My Review in Short:

So a new little ditty I’m trying out…a review in short! I know we all are limited on time so rather than me blathering on and on, I figured a few sentences would be perfect! Here goes…

What’s not to love about a second chance romance, especially when written by Tessa Bailey?  Elliott and Peggy have an intense past that ended way too soon, leaving more than a few things and plenty of feelings left hanging in the balance.  Neither one of them are able to forget the other, and with flashbacks to some of their most heated moments, it’s no wonder why! Their road back to each other was a total doozy and the emotions ran high while I was reading.  I simply loved these two and wanted them to get back together with a panicked desperation! Not to worry…it all ends out exactly as I had hoped *swoon*

Tessa shines once again when her dirty talking alpha male hero not only has to make up for his flawed past moments with Peggy, but also has to win her back and a place in her future.  There were two incredible moments int his book that I can’t wait for you all to read….the nail polish and the speech at the end.  Grab your tissues, ladies and gents, Elliott will have you crying happy tears!

Thank you, Tessa, for another sexy and kick ass read!  I will never ever get enough of your dirty talking men and the gals (and guys) who love them! (oh yeah, and thanks for being my first review in short! xo)


Five Loves



About the author:

Tessa Bailey is originally from Carlsbad, California. The day after high school graduation, she packed her yearbook, ripped jeans, and laptop, and drove 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 attention.

She now lives in Long Island, New York with her husband and daughter. Although she is severely sleep-deprived, she is incredibly happy to be living her dream of writing about people falling in love.
