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?
In the blurb for Follow, it mentions the book is "mega hot" and, while this may not be catnip to all readers, I have a definite love for Tessa Bailey's books and the dirty talking heroes she writes.
Calling Will a "dirty talker" is, well, not even close to what he really is...he takes sexy, hot, and raw conversation to the next level. There are some incredible scenes where he is pure sex, with just his words.
And, wow, does it work well. And, while it is sexy as hell, it never feels over the top. Credit definitely goes to the writing talent of Tessa Bailey here, as this is where her storytelling skill comes in, she makes it to where the sexy is balanced with the emotional and you also see how his words effect Theresa as well as Will, and the things he is saying are hot for both of them. Ms. Bailey builds on the instant attraction they feel to one another, punches up the chemistry with one heck of an interesting dinner, adds a little secrecy and distrust, and leaves the reader loving what they end up with.
As I am guessing is obvious, this title is driven both by sex and by the story. I thought there was an excellent balance of both, especially as this is on the erotic side, and often the plot is lost in the focus on making sure the story is hot.
I also loved the dog and the element that is brought to the story as well as I thought the resolution of the story with Southpaw added both to the character development of Will and to the overall plot and development of the story.
As the blurb says, this is a mega-hot, incredibly sexy, erotic romance. I absolutely loved it, as always with anything by this author.
I recommend this title.
