Praise for Need Me: A Broke and Beautiful Novel

“One of the genre’s very best.” — Kate Clayborn
“Tessa Bailey’s writing stands out in all the right sexy ways.” — Buzzfeed
“Bailey writes banter and rom-com scenarios with aplomb, but for those who like their romance on the spicier side, she’s also the Michelangelo of dirty talk. She wields filth like Da Vinci does a paintbrush, and there’s a lot to be said for an author who can fill such exchanges with all the requisite heat, enthusiastic consent, and yes, even humor, of such a scenario without veering into corny territory.” — Entertainment Weekly
