Without Boundaries by C.J. Azevedo Blog Tour hosted by Mary Elizabeth's Crazy Book Obsession


Bailey Hayes moved across the country ten years ago after a tragic accident left her motherless. Distraught, confused and just sad, Bailey opted to leave the only life she has ever known to attend college at NYU. Determined to not experience the loss of a loved one again, Bailey keeps her one friend that she made as a freshmen in college. And that’s it. She dated during her college years but she never let anything really stick. Not trusting herself enough to give her heart and not get hurt she was satisfied with the life she led. That is until she met the handsome, confident and successful Hollister Harrison.
Bailey was swept off her feet instantly with his charm and charisma. Six short months of dating, she finds herself moving in with him. The minute she had her bags unpacked, the fun loving romantic she fell hard for was starting to dwindle away as he became unnecessarily possessive and borderline abusive. Bailey insists on making her relationship work in fear of repeating her past and making a haste decision by leaving too soon. On a weekend when Hollister is out of town, she meets a guy. A beautiful charming guy whom she feels an obvious attraction for, but also a unique connection with. The beautiful charming guy is none other than her running partner’s brother. Bailey finds herself in an oddly nice predicament.
The beautiful charming guy is none other than her running partner’s brother. Talon McAllister has chosen to dedicate himself to his family’s business his entire adult life. He adores his parents and his sister and hockey. Not leaving much time for anything else he has been single for years. Meeting Bailey Hayes changed his outlook. He wants her. He will do whatever he has to do to get her on the same page.
Finding out she lives with her boyfriend deters him from his mission of getting her to be his. But when she calls and asks to tag along on his vacation with his sister, he can’t help but get excited. When he picks her up and sees her bruised and battered face he figures “game over” he is going to show her how she deserves to be treated. By the end of their first day together alone, Bailey propositions Talon with a brief relationship without boundaries and no lines to cross. He’s in… all in.
Will this brief encounter without boundaries relinquish her twisted sense of loyalty to Hollister or will she walk away from her greatest love for fear of repeating her past?

Character Casting and Review

This is a beautiful love story, I was swept away by the charming Talon McAllister :) This character makes you fall head over heels in love with him. CJ has written a perfect book husband..yes I said husband.  From the moment we are introduced to him I knew he was going to be great. He's sweet, charming, sexy, and a hockey player.....so that means he's built!!

We are introduced to Bailey Hayes and I'm immediately drawn to her. She has such a strong beautiful spirit. She is currently living with her boyfriend Hollister, who happens to be a very angry person. Of course he was sweet and charming in the beginning but as soon as Bailey moves in with him he changes. So when she meets Talon for the first time she is immediately drawn to him, but she holds herself back because of her relationship with Hollister.

Hollister, his character made me what to throw my iPad across the room! The only good thing about him was his good looks. He is abusive to Bailey, but Bailey refuses to leave him because of her loyalty to him. And the sad part is, this is how most women react to situations like this, they stay hoping the person they fell in love with reappears. 

This love story is beautifully written, and I enjoyed it imensely. If you are looking for a sweet romance with a little angst thrown in this is the book for you. I give a solid 4 stars, and I am looking forward to reading more by this author.
