Tease Me, Baby (O'Connor Family #2)
by Katie Reus
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?

This story is the second in a series set in the year-round-Christmas town known as Holly, NC. I didn’t realize when I read the first story that it would be turned into a series, but I’m thrilled to be able to see a return of these characters and this special town. The story kicks off with a serious bang, but then simmers nicely as Brad and Fallon get to know each other a little better. I enjoyed the story very much and can see that the H/H were meant to be and just need a little timeline to give them both a push towards their destinies and their new life together. Brad is an alpha male to the core, but even when he is being commanding and macho he is still sweet and considerate to his woman and what woman wouldn’t melt for that. Fallon is at a crossroads in her life and can’t decide which direction to take in her life. Starting a relationship with Brad is not making her decision any more clear, but thankfully she begins to believe in herself and her dreams in time for Brad to have a chance to steal her heart. I loved seeing these two circling one another and losing their minds in the passionate chemistry they shared. It is obvious that these two will be together for a long time to come and the passion won’t be dying anytime soon. If you like a good steamy romance with a lot of sweetness and love thrown in, then Tease Me, Baby is just the story to read on a lonely evening. I am looking forward to the next story in the series and seeing more of Fallon’s family falling in love. This series is one that surprised me, but with the chemistry and strength of characters I have come to expect from Katie, this story is magic and I have no regrets about jumping into another series with both feet.
