ARC Review: Disorderly Conduct by Tessa Bailey

I do not read NA books. I'm just not into millennial romance. My 20s was confusing, I'm still getting over the trauma and I try not to revisit it in my romance. However, I love Tessa Bailey so I'm willing to give anything by her a try and she did not disappoint. 

This book is the first in the new Academy series by Bailey and I already know I'll be reading the other two books. This is Charlie and Ever's story. Charlie is in the police academy. He is convinced that he is destined to give his every waking hour to his job and that there will never be room in his life for a relationship. Therefore, Charlie has perfected the art of the spontaneous hook up. Charlie meets his match in Ever. Ever was taught to believe that there is nothing a woman can gain from a relationship with a man but heartbreak. Ever lives by a set of rules passed down by the women in her family that dictate that no hook up can go past 30 days. Ever purposely picks men who she thinks are somehow unavailable to insure that they won't try to stick around past the 30 days. Ever thinks Charlie is perfect because she knows how committed he is to his job. So together Charlie and Ever embark on a super hot month of hook ups. They agree to never talk about the past or the future and no cuddling. What could go wrong?

Well, Ever changes her mind and decides to give dating a serious try. Charlie doesn't think he can be the "dating" guy for Ever but he absolutely can't stay away from her. The idea of her being with another guy causes him to quite literally lose his mind and all sorts of hilarious hijinks ensues. This book is actually really funny and a lot of fun to read. There is a hilarious speed dating scene, a mishap with a fire alarm and a part y with a bunch of middle aged women that gets totally out of hand. Meanwhile Charlie and Ever are supposed to be just friends but there chemistry is just impossible to ignore.

Charlie and Ever have like super hot dirty chemistry that is just wild. They hold out for as long as they can but they keep "slipping up" and muddling the friendship. Charlie is hoping that he can convince Ever to go back to their hook up arrangement by showing her that there is nothing better for her. Ever is holding out hope that Charlie will change his mind about not being the dating type. Unfortunately, Charlie's strategy requires some deception. As amusing as it is for the reader to watch Charlie's maneuvers, Ever was less than amused when she found out what he had been up to.

It all works out in the end. This is a book with fantastic dialogue, great writing, a super entertaining plot and a compelling supporting cast of characters. If you like NA you will love this book . If you don't like NA, I still think you will really enjoy this book so give it a try.
