Follow by Tessa Bailey: Release Blitz Review & Excerpt

Blurb:

He wants her soul. Too bad she already sold it.

Family is everything to gambling den darling, Teresa Valentini. Blood comes first, especially before men. So when her brother lands himself in hot water, she’s willing to do whatever it takes to save him. And showing up topless in her unwitting savior’s motel room is turning out to be the furthest thing from a hardship…

Will Caruso is the bad boy of New York’s financial scene…and he just found out the very thing that drives his success is a damn lie. Now, he’s exchanged his high-stress life for the open road, no one but his Great Dane…and half a million Instagram followers to keep him company. When a mysterious beauty arrives, her secrecy prods his suspicions, even while she tempts his lust to the breaking point.

Teresa met Will under false pretenses, but the bond consuming them is real. They’re strong enough to overcome a little betrayal…aren’t they?

Excerpt:

The cheers are deafening. Will hoots and rises from his chair, moving into a spot behind mine. Paula takes his place across from me. Everyone crowds in on all sides. And suddenly my world has been narrowed down to an arm wrestling arena.

“All right, baby.” Will’s voice smokes into my ear. “Here’s how we get to five seconds. You’re going to top-roll.”

We? And what is that?”

I sound like a hysterical cartoon character, but Will continues undaunted, his breath on my neck, his thumb massaging me between the shoulder blades. “If we make this a bicep game, she’s got you beat, so we’re going to make it about hands, fingers and wrists, to ease the disadvantage. You’re going to work your palm upwards, along hers, like you’re trying to wrap your hand around the top part of hers. Just hold firm and focus on coming over the top of her.”

Paula is mean mugging me across the table, gum being mutilated between her teeth. “I thought you ran a hedge fund,” I mutter to Will.

“I didn’t always,” he mutters, laying a kiss on my cheek. “Five seconds. You got this.”

“I was wondering why you aren’t already married. Mystery solved. You get a lap dance from your date. Then she gets her arm torn off.”

Another kiss and this time his lips linger on my temple. “You could look at it that way. Or you could look at it mine. Thank fuck I’m not married or I’d have missed the girl who gave me a lap dance, then took on the local gator-wrestling champ. All before lunchtime.” His fingers slide up into my hair and tug, firm and gentle all at once. “Thank fuck, right?”

About the Author:

Thank you for your interest in my books! I'm Tessa and I live in the crazy, loud, overcrowded borough of Brooklyn, New York. I love it here. This city is a constant source of inspiration, which is why I've decided to set my most recent books in the Line of Duty Series here.

I moved to New York when I was eighteen, the day after I graduated high school. Threw my suitcase in the back of a Chevrolet Cavalier and drove across the country to find my adventure. I'm still finding it, little by little.

Thank you for being a part of it.

Yvette's Review:

I’m pretty much OBSESSED with Tessa Bailey. She’s one of my top favorite authors because she’s incapable of writing a bad book. With each new release, I never cease to be impressed by her ability to combine engrossing storylines with smoking hot romances and unforgettable characters. To say that I was excited to read her newest release, Follow, is a *bit* of an understatement because I knew it would be amazing. Spoiler alert (not really): I was right. As the lovechild of Tessa Bailey’s Made in Jersey and Crossing the Lines series, Follow is an erotically-charged page-turner, combining a flirty, sexy romance with pulse-pounding danger and suspense. Think The Lady Eve meets It Happened One Night. Every page is riveting, seductive, and entertaining, making Follow a must-read romance.

Part road trip romance with a bit of mobster action thrown in, Follow chronicles the unlikely love story between Teresa Valentini and Will Caruso, two strangers brought together by nefarious circumstances. From the beginning, you know there’s a secret between these two characters so you know (some of) what’s in store for them, but you can’t help but get swept away in the whirlwind of feelings and desire building between them. The chemistry between our spunky, no-nonsense heroine and our growly, possessive Alpha hero is off-the-charts, so their instant physical connection is not surprising. What is surprising is how by fulfilling their deepest, darkest sexual fantasies, Teresa and Will also create an unadulterated emotional connection.

After reading the blurb for Follow, I thought I had an inkling of what I was getting into. The actual narrative, however, is so much more complex than I could have imagined. There’s danger, there’s duplicity, there’s intrigue, and then there’s the romance. I mean, Tessa Bailey knows how to write a steamy sex scene but good lawd, this book is STEAMY. I’m blushing just thinking about it. This book should probably come with a warning: will cause heart palpitations and exploding ovaries. I’m just gonna say that Will is a dirty-talker and, while that may not be an unusual characteristic in a Tessa Bailey hero, the author definitely upped her game with Will.

With a storyline that’ll tug on your heartstrings, characters that are as complex as they are compelling, and a romance that’s downright filthy, Follow is another instant favorite from Tessa Bailey. This is a book that delivers on all fronts, keeping you on your toes and ensuring that you’re glued to your kindle from start to finish.
