Talking dirty and the Queen of Dirty Talk (We had a Tessa Bailey book discussion)
I love reading Tessa Bailey’s books.
If you’re into steamy romance and hot alpha guys, she should be at the top of your reading list, if she isn’t yet. I discovered Tessa when her third book with Entangled Brazen, Officer Off Limits, came out, and I’ve been reading each new book on release day since.
I know I’m not alone in this fandom. She has a Facebook group called Bailey’s Babes, where Tessa readers from all over get to enjoy “check-ins” with her characters and the miracle that is “Fat Tuesday” (go join the group, will not tell you here what it is). But how about fellow Pinoy readers? I know some friends who are totally into reading Tessa too, but we’ve yet to do a proper sit-down, book-club style, to discuss all of this.
So we did.
This was on August 29, the same weekend as the Philippine Literary Festival. While literature was being celebrated in Raffles Hotel Makati, we were a few blocks away talking about our favorite Tessa Bailey heroes (Beck and Bowen are tied for top spot!). And, to be fair, seriously and intelligently discussing romance and heat and what makes one story work for some and not for others. (Because naughty teachers ick some people out, turn some people on.)
Tessa was the perfect first subject for this kind of romance discussion! Her books are so easy to get, if you don’t mind buying ebooks. And Tessa herself is so easy to talk to on Twitter and Facebook and everywhere.
We’re doing this again! Outlander by Diana Gabaldon is on the sked, for October. Contact me if you’re in Manila that time and want to drop by.
