Disturbing His Peace by Tessa Bailey

Disturbing His Peace
The Academy #2
5 out of 5 stars

In Disturbing His Peace, book three in The Academy series, author Tessa Bailey introduces readers to the hearts and souls of Lieutenant Greer Burns and police academy cadet Danika Silva. Two people who have spent months fighting their feelings for each other, knowing how wrong giving into them could be for them.

Greer is a gruff, no-nonsense kind of guy. He’s seen a lot of loss in his life, both on and off the PD clock, and as a result, he’s learned to shutdown his emotions. It’s the only way he knows how to function, though meeting Danika has spurred a spark in him. Because the emotion he’s done his best to keep at bay, come roaring to the surface whenever she’s around—and thanks to her reckless mistake, she’s around more than he’d like.

Danika hates having to deal with Greer and his cold attitude, only…she actually kind of doesn’t. Because the more time she spends with him, the more she comes to realize Greer is not the cold, unfeeling jerk she made him out to be. Instead, he’s the one who gets her, who sees her, and does his best to steer her away from her tendency to take on too much for herself.

On the surface, Greer and Danika seem like oil and water and yet, they fit together in a way that makes them whole. That truly gives them both the little piece of life that’s been missing up to now. And I have to say, I wanted to both strangle Greer and hug the life out of him. He puts on a tough act, but he’ll also surprise you in ways you aren’t expecting. And Danika? I wanted to cheer her on and be her friend because she’s strong and brave and so awesome. These two had incredible chemistry. I loved their banter and snarky interactions so much.

Once again, Tessa Bailey hits it out of the park with her latest release. Fun, engaging, and intense, with smoking hot love scenes and epically brilliant characterization, Disturbing His Peace is a must read contemporary romance that both longtime and brand new Bailey fans are sure to love. Just like I did.

She’s got probable cause to make her move . . . 

Danika Silva can’t stand Lt. Greer Burns. Her roommate’s older brother may be sexy as hell, but he’s also a cold, unfeeling robot. She just wants to graduate and forget about her scowling superior. But when a dangerous mistake lands Danika on probation—under Greer’s watch—she’s forced to interact with the big, hulking jerk. Call him daily to check in? Done. Ride shotgun in his cruiser every night? Done. Try not to climb into his giant, muscular lap and kiss him? Umm…

Greer doesn’t let anything—or anyone—distract him from the job. Except lately, all he can think about is Danika. He’s wanted the beautiful, cocky recruit since the moment he saw her. But she’s reckless and unpredictable, and Greer is painfully aware of what can happen when an officer doesn’t follow the rules. Probation seemed like a good idea, but now Danika’s scent is in his car and he’s replayed her voicemails twenty times. Christ, he’s a goner.

Danika’s melting Greer’s stone-cold exterior one ride-along at a time. Being together could have serious consequences… but breaking a few rules never hurt anybody, right?

“It’s cold in here,” she rasps.

It’s sweltering—at least in our heated bubble— and the flicker in her gaze tells me she’s aware of her lie. “Would you like to be warmed up?”

“What do you mean by . . . warmed up?” She whispers, her tone suggesting she can’t believe she’s asking.

That makes two of us. But her encouragement to keep going, to keep talking like this to her, has my hunger surging to an eleven. There’s some- thing keeping me from touching her, like some mental fail-safe put in place for self-preservation.

I allow my mouth to brush those curls at her ears.

With a rough intake of air, she dips, legs losing power, and I surge forward on auto-pilot, my body and mind conditioned to save her from falling. The no touching rule is no longer a possibility.




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.
