New York Times bestselling 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.
"a laugh-out-loud raunchy romantic comedy."--Heroes &
"Bailey puts a fun, super-sexy spin on the classic "hot for teacher" trope [...] The love scenes in Need Me are practically incendiary, and the author's sharp sense of humor provides a refreshing change from the usual heavy dose of dark angst that characterizes many other NA romances."--Booklist
"I can't remember the last time I read a romance as funny as this one. Roxy is one of the most hardworking heroine's in contemporary romance and she's so incredibly dedicated to making ends meet. The book, for me, truly embodies what modern romance is all about. "--BookRiot (Best Books of March 2015)
