Review: Tease Me, Baby by Katie Reus

I’m always ready for another Katie Reus romance, even the novellas!

Format: .mobi (A copy of this book was provided by the publisher via NetGalley for the purpose of an honest review. )
Publisher: KR Press, LLC
Release Date: March 14, 2017
She never wanted perfection, but that's what she finds.

Pastry chef, Fallon O'Connor is torn between her dreams and her obligations. Right before she reluctantly sets off for a degree she doesn't want, she's reeling from a mind-blowing encounter with Mr. Perfect. But one sexy, toe-curling kiss isn't nearly enough when a Boy Scout like Sheriff Fulton lights her fire.

After one delectable taste, he's never letting her go.

Brad Fulton would do anything for more time with Fallon. After all, he's wanted a chance with her ever since she moved back to town. And just when things start to heat up, Fallon starts packing her bags—for a future without him. Now, it's up to Brad to show Fallon that everything she's ever wanted is right in Holly, North Carolina. But can Fallon trust her heart enough to stay?

What’s it About? This super sexy novella is about pastry chef Fallon O’Connor and sheriff Brad Fulton. After the two share a steamy kiss on Christmas Eve, all Brad can think about is spending more time with Fallon but she’s leaving their hometown for school in a few weeks. Now Brad has to show Fallon what exactly she’s leaving behind if she decides to go for a degree she’s not even sure she wants.

Describe the hero in five words: Dependable. Funny. Determined. Sexy. Friendly.
Did you like him? Yes.
Why? Brad is one of those guys that you think you know and then you don’t. I thought he was going to be this uptight, enforcer-of-the-law but he was the total opposite. He was fun loving, sweet when he needed to be, and totally down for some sexy time in a truck just to prove a point! I liked Brad’s personality, he wasn’t overbearing but he wasn’t a pushover either. He was just this easy-to-like-even-easier-to-love kind of guy who didn’t need to think twice about how he felt about Fallon.

Describe the heroine in five words: Funny. Kind. Intelligent. Friendly. Loving.
Did you like her? Yes.
Why? I think everyone can relate to Fallon’s conflict of whether to do what is expected of her or to do what is best for her. I know I did and that’s what had me really connecting with this character. She’s a good person and I liked the way she treated the people around her. She was kind and giving but she wasn’t anyone’s doormat. Fallon was just one of those super cool, laid back women who didn’t make other women feel like they had to “keep up” with her when it came to trendy clothes, diets, or other fads. She was definitely a character I could imagine being friends with.

Let’s talk about the romance: Brad and Fallon obviously had a connection prior to the start of Tease Me, Baby (That must have been some kiss) and that connection really pushed this short story forward at a fast pace. Being together just seemed so natural for the both of them even when they thought they would have to try a long distance relationship. They’re somewhat similar in personality and I honestly thought they’d be a little tame chemistry wise but man oh man they were combustible together! Just within the first few pages it was clear how good Brad and Fallon were together. Because a novella has such length restrictions I will say that Tease Me, Baby felt rushed towards the end with the insta-love going on and the quickie solution.

How about that supporting cast? Because Tease Me, Baby is a novella there wasn’t much time to spend on anyone other than Brad and Fallon but both characters had friends and family that made quick appearances. I personally loved Fallon’s overprotective-but-still-cute brothers. They really showed the how close the O’Connors were as a family even when they didn’t always agree.

Click It or Skip It? Click It. Katie Reus never disappoints and she’s one of the few authors who can write a good novella.
