Tease Me, Melissa Schroeder, Harmless Publishing
Semper Fi Marines #1
A man who thinks he has what he wants.

Bran Johnson always knew he wanted to be a Marine. What makes it even better is longtime gal pal TK is now stationed at the same base. Unfortunately, Bran is having a hard time dealing with his feelings when he realizes that TK is considered a hot commodity on base. Worse, he finds himself taking a backseat to her admirers.

A woman who always wished for more.

Tess Keller has loved Bran since they were in high school. The former football captain always treated her like a friend so she tried to move on. Unfortunately, he’s in her business constantly now. One passionate argument leads to more than either of them expected. Tess knows it isn’t going to last because Bran is never going to settle down. So, to save face, she suggests they stay friends, only with the side benefit of being sometime lovers.

A Marine determined to win at all costs.

Bran agrees to the friends with benefits idea just to keep himself close to Tess. She might think he’s not around for the long haul, but this is one Johnson brother who knows exactly what he wants…and just how to get it. And what he wants is Tess in his bed and in his life forever. Nothing will stop him, not even Tess herself
.


REVIEW:
Bran and Tess have been friends since high school. Tess had a big crush, but Bran just didn't see her that way. Resigned to being "just friends" is hard but Tess knows that's the only way she can be in Bran's life.

Tess is a constant in Bran's life and his best friend until their graduation from Annapolis when Tess kisses him in celebration and BAM all of a sudden Bran realizes his best friend is a girl.

Several years later the two are still friends when they end up assigned to the same base...then just sit back and watch the fireworks because things are about to get serious.

I love these kinds of stories where long time friends suddenly have that special AH-HA moment.Tess is a strong character and I enjoyed seeing her softer side come out with Bran.  This was a quick sexy read that I was wishing was longer. If you are looking for something to spice up an afternoon then this is a winner!

About the Author:
Born to an Air Force family at an Army hospital Melissa has always been a little bit screwy. She was further warped by her years of watching Monty Python and her strange family. Her love of romance novels developed after accidentally picking up a Linda Howard book. After becoming hooked, she read close to 300 novels in one year, deciding that romance was her true calling instead of the literary short stories and suspenses she had been writing. She has had over 25 short stories, novellas and novels published in four years with seven different publishers.
Being a brat she swore never to marry military. Alas, fate always has her way with mortals. She is married to an AF major with two brats of their own. They live wherever the military sticks them which for the first time in years is a place where THE BUGS DIE!

RATING: 4 Chocolate-Dipped Strawberries
