Forever / April 25, 2017 / $7.99 print, $5.99 digital
Is white-hot drama featuring damaged protagonists your jam? Have I got some splendid news for you! Too Hard to Forget, the third installment in Tessa Bailey’s scorching Romancing the Clarksons series, is here, and it definitely brings the sizzle. And it brings the pain. And it also brings the painful sizzle. Gentle readers should be aware up front that this novel chronicles a second chance at love as experienced by a self-loathing college football coach and a four-times-engaged woman who can only achieve sexual satisfaction while her partner is spanking her and rasping the Lord’s Prayer into her ear. (There are kinks and then there are kinks.)
But if you can take it? Tessa Bailey can dish it out. Oh, boy, can she ever.
Three years ago, Elliott Brooks was the powerful, recently-widowed coach of a highly successful college football team. Peggy Clarkson was a gorgeous undergraduate cheerleader. She chased Elliott until he caught her, and they had a brief, clandestine relationship fueled by lust and guilt (hence the prayer and spanking) – Elliott, a devout Catholic, couldn’t forget the circumstances surrounding his wife’s untimely death and was tormented by the utterly sinful bad wrongness of his illicit relationship with a student. Accordingly, he ended up smashing Peggy’s heart into a million little pieces.
