Publisher's Summary

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?

Another entertaining story about the O'Connor fami

Ms. Reus delivers another entertaining story about the O’Connor family of Holly, NC. This time it’s Fallon’s story. She is a pastry chef with dreams of owning a food truck but also feels she has to fullfill her family’s expectations of going to culinary school. Her indecision gets more complicated when Sheriff Brad Fulton makes it clear he wants a relationship with her. These two are adorable and you just want them have a chance.
Fallon has to decide what she truly wants to do with her life. Will that include Brad, who is willing to do anything for her, or will it be a life away from Holly, NC and thus away from Brad?
Once again, this talented author manages to give us in this novella, a well develop plot and complex characters. Not an easy feat to accomplish in just a few pages.
The audiobook made the characters seem more real, thanks to the talented narrator, Sophie Eastlake.

A wonderful low-angst romance!!!!!

What made the experience of listening to Tease Me, Baby the most enjoyable?

The experience of listening to Tease Me, Baby was so enjoyable due to the whole package which included the well-plotted storyline, the believable and likable characters, the small-town setting of Holly, North Carolina where it is Christmas year-round and the very capable performance of Sophie Eastlake. It's simply a wonderful low-angst romance.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character was hot alpha Brad Fulton, small-town Holly’s Sheriff.Brad is a respected, responsible, Captain America type and Fallon believes she’s not good enough for him. But, as Brad said so well: "Maybe I’m not the Boy Scout you think I am."<br/><br/>Brad knows that Fallon is the woman for him but she’s avoiding him like the plague. He thinks she and her career can thrive in Holly with him and that she doesn’t need a culinary degree as she’s already an accomplished chef and can be successful without it. But, not only does he have to convince Fallon that her future is in Holly with him, but he has to get her overprotective brothers to accept him too. <br/>

What about Sophie Eastlake’s performance did you like?

Sophie Eastlake is the very capable narrator for Tease Me, Baby. She has capably voiced many of Katie’s audios and does another excellent job with Tease Me, Baby. She consistently differentiated between the characters’ voices and exuded the appropriate emotions making for an easy, pleasurable listening experience. Sophie’s performance positively enhanced an already enjoyable read. If you enjoy listening to audio books, I’d highly recommend that you check out the audio edition.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

One of my favorite cute slightly naughty scenes involved a family dinner after Brad had been coerced into playing a brutal game of hockey with Fallon’s safeguarding brothers. Here’s a short excerpt from that sweet and steamy scene which took place in Fallon’s family’s guest bathroom:<br/><br/>Laughing, she stood and held out a hand, “You need any first aid?”<br/>“Nah. Your kisses did the trick.”<br/>

Any additional comments?

Tease Me, Baby is the perfect read for an entertaining, quick escape. It features charming and genuine characters in a light romance with a highly satisfying HEA. If you are looking for a fun, fast-paced, intriguing and sexy romance, you won’t go wrong with Tease Me, Baby!

Should She Stay or Go?

Tease Me Baby is the second book (novella) in the O’Connor family series by Katie Reus. It takes place in the town of Holly – where it is Christmas 365 days a year. Fallon O’Connor is one step away from following her dreams (or so she thinks). She is always trying to please someone (usually her mother) and thinks that attending pastry school will do this. After a scorching encounter with Brad Fulton, the town Sheriff and all around boy scout, Fallon is torn between school and staying with Brad. The plot was fairly well developed for a novella and the characters were believable. Although this is the second novella (book) in the series, and you do see appearances by prior characters, I think it could be read as a stand-alone quite easily. Ms. Reus’ books are generally an automatic purchase for me. Her plots are well written, the characters are well developed and their interactions are believable.

I listened to this book in the car when travelling. Sophie Eastlake does an excellent job with the narration of this book. She has the nuances of the characters down and actually makes you feel like they are the ones talking to you, as you listen. There were no discernable pauses or miscues in the narration.

Loved this book!

Would you listen to Tease Me, Baby again? Why?

TEASE ME AGAIN BABY<br/>This is one of my very favorite books by Katie Reus. Katie always spins a story with great characters, steamy hot sex in a well written tale. Once again, Sophie Eastlake is the narrator. She always does a wonderful job. This is the story of Fallon and Brad. He is the local sheriff and she is a woman that wants to go to culinary school. One hot kiss from the sheriff changes everything she thought she wanted. I so enjoyed this book!

Brad and Fallon: Good boy and the bad girl romance

This novella was short but enjoyable. The narrator, Sophie Eastlake, is one of my favorites so I knew I was in for a treat. The story was set up as a good boy – bad girl trope. I didn’t read book 1 so I felt like I was missing a little of Fallon and Brad’s history. It was clear though, that the attraction that developed between the two was reciprocal.

Brad is the kind of guy I would want my daughter to marry. He is the sheriff, he is respected and he is completely responsible. Fallon wasn’t as wishy-washy as she appeared. She just held her cards close to the vest and didn’t share her dreams because she was afraid of visible failure.

These two had great chemistry and they actually communicated about their expectations and wishes for the future. For a novella, it was developed nicely and felt complete.

A Short Little Tease

This book is short and sweet, with all the elements for a beautiful romance. With an outstanding author and one of my favorite narrators, I knew I couldn't go wrong but this story was even better than I anticipated. The author packed a full story into this novella, including charming characters and an interesting plot.

He isn't taking NO for an answer

I absolutely loved this book. Sophie Eastlake did a wonderful job narrating. If you love a sweet romance with just enough spice then this would be a great place to start although there is a book one which I am sure you would enjoy also.

Great novella

Any additional comments?

Fallon is the only girl with three brothers and is due to move away to culinary school. Brad is the town Sheriff and has always had a bit of a thing for Fallon but is initially unaware that she is planning to leave and only finds out after he has made his move and a relationship is developing between them. Brad knows he can't stop the woman he loves from realising her dreams but also knows he can't let her go so has to come up with a solution to the dilemma.<br/><br/>Another short story but a cute one none the less. Usually short stories include a case of insta-love but that's not the case with these novellas as they tend to be couple who have known, liked and had feelings before. These novellas feel like a section has been cut out of a full story and we get to read the end third - Ms Reus does a good job of giving us a concise backstory so well aware of the couples history and have they got to the stage we get to read.<br/><br/>I am not ususally a great fan of novellas as like to read the whole story but the stories are very well written and I don't feel I've wasted my time reading them as is often the case, so if you are a reader of romance and want to read a good, cute well written short story then these are for you.<br/><br/>I was given a free audio copy by the author with the request to leave a review, but it was not a condition and not compulsory to do so. The story was read by Sophie Eastlake who in my opinion did a really great job - I have listened to quite a few books read by her and have always enjoyed them and have her rated as a good narrator.
