**4.5 Deserving of Love Stars**

HOLY SHIT!!

I didn't see that coming till the last minute.

This book gripped me and had me anticipating the next page over and over again. Wow, Ms. Michaels, what a kick ass job you did on the suspense, thrills, mystery and romance all rolled into one!!

I can't wait to get my hands on the next book.

***ARC received in exchange for an honest review by Bookalicious Babes Blog***

Curveball was just like the title...curveball after curveball after curveball! Breanne, a pretty and witty mom of three no longer married, and Drew, a hot ball player in every sense of the word, experience a roller coaster of a ride. Curveball is slightly scary, thrilling, intense, and a bit hot. I was on the edge while reading...the twists and turns of this story sucked me in...and I loved every minute! I felt like I

HOLY STREAM OF CURSE WORDS

First off let me say that I would have rated this book a 10 if I had the chance.

Amazing!

The title was completely befitting. I was not expecting this book to be as intense as it was! I had to put it down a walk away from screaming in anticipation. I loved the development of Drew and Breanne's relationship. How they discovered and grew to know each others personalities through all the situations and obstacles that wer

A love story like never ever before, two individuals like never before, and an ending life never ever before. This story is such a big curveball that towards the end, you are left wondering what hit you so hard that you got dazed.
Teresa is a master writer and Curveball is a novel any mystery lover must read. The twists and turns of the book are something, the likes of which are hardly ever obtained these days. It is a book which you have to read to believe

3.5 Stars (characters/romance=4 stars, suspense/plot development=3 stars)
I enjoy discovering new authors, books, & characters to love. If a book's synopsis is unique & interesting, I'm usually game to give it a try. Curveball fits the criteria, tempting me to accept the book for a honest review in spite of my overfull reading calendar. As I read, I found myself drawn into an intriguing story with a couple of main characters I soon found myself pulling for. Breanne is a mother of 3 who ha

I finished this book a couple of days ago. The author has a great flow in her writing style and I enjoyed the book.
I did come across a few grammatical errors (misspellings, missing commas/unnecessary commas, etc.) but not too much. The author has a tendency to start quite a few sentences with conjunctions (particularly "and") which, yes is acceptable in some cases, but may not be the best choice in all cases. I have had it drilled into my head from high school through grad school to NEVER start

Curveball • Teresa Michaels

Have you ever finished a book and your mind is like "What the f*ck?!?!" then you message the author because you most definitely loved the book but you think she is evil and mean?? Well that happened with this story! Teresa Michaels wrote this on edge of your seat book wonderfully. Once I started it I couldn't put it down. She pulls you into the story of Breanne and Drew; their first met is amusing, their escape through the woods makes you feel like you are with them in

This wasn't one of my usual reads but I absolutely loved it!!! The plot was brilliant and the twists were definitely a surprise! Breanne and Drew are an amazing couple, seeing them interact and fall in love was beautiful. The plane ride grabs your attention immediately what seems so normal and routine, turned out to be a devastating "accident". The next events really get your mind working and on the edge of your seat, it grips you and you won't want to put it down. A few times I felt myself hold ...more

Wow! I think I have a book hangover. The name of the book is definitely appropriate for this story. I was drawn into the story from the very start. I didn't want to put the book down because I was anxious to find out what was going to happen next.

Breanne is leaving on a business trip, back to work after many years of being a stay at home mom. This is the first time she will be away from her three children. At the airport she finds that her flight reservation had been cancelled and that her assi

I am amazed. To say I love this book is an understatement. It has everything, jam packed with storyline and plot and adventure and drama and...just wow!
My heart sighed, then it broke a little bit, then it thought maybe things might get better and started kind of purring but no, alas, it is shattered!
I am absolutely in love with Drew. What a man he is!
It makes a really refreshing change to see a different age dynamic between the 2 characters too. In all honesty I'm getting

I was thrown a Curveball by Teresa Michaels in the best possible way. (Spoiler Free)

Curveball was steamy, action packed and in general just a damn good read.

Responsible Breanne Sullivan has a feisty side that doesn’t disappoint. Charismatic Drew Scott draws you in with his constant innuendos and playful teasing. The back and forth banter between them keeps you wondering what either may say or do next as you ride shotgun to the budding friendship they form, watching it unfold and grow page by pag

Do you want murder, mystery, suspense, action with a little bit of love thrown in? If so pick up this book.

The action starts right away when Drew and Breanna are involved in a plane crash that was not an accident. They became friends on the plane but soon learn to depend on each other as they run for their lives. As they face this adventure you get to know about them and their life. Ms Michaels does a great job of developing them as characters.

What made this story was the never ending twists an

I was approached by the author Teresa Michaels to ask if I would consider reading her book and giving my honest review on it. Remember, we all have differing takes on books, that is what makes it so exciting!!




We have Breanne [loved that name] who is the Mother of three children. She has returned to work after several years of being at home, and we all know what this is like.

Then we have Drew. He isn't adverse to getting what he wants and when he wants it. UNTIL he met Breanne.

A wonderfully written romantic suspense novel!

This book grabbed my attention from the first page and did not let go until the very last page. AND left me wanting more!!

I love the dynamics between the hero (Drew) and the heroine (Breanne), I love their witty banter and quirks. Drew is so swoon worthy and fun, perfectly matched by Breanne's sassy attitude.

But this book is so much more than your normal romance. There is so much suspense, twists and turn, and things you will never see coming right

Theresa Michaels did a great job at carefully planning out this very tangled up situation that Breanne Sullivan, a feisty mother of three and Drew Scott, the womanizing baseball player get thrown into.

It was pretty easy to love the characters from the get go, even Drew who lives a celebrity life full of booze, sex and money, you could quickly see he was so much more. Breanne is both feisty and sweet, she is very clearly guarded and for good reason.

This is a hard one to review without spoilers an

You know you are onto something when you dream about the characters!
Curveball indeed!
Fantastic romance, incredibly strong characters, suspense and intrigue are plenty! Very well written. The author is very careful to give enough detail to scenes to build atmosphere but not so much as to become boring. I truly enjoyed this book and look forward to book 2.
What a cliff-hanger ending!

What a great book!! Omg!! This is a new author to me and she has literally has hit it out of the park!! Breanne and Drew are two great characters!! This story like is not typical (which I'm so thankful for) and the writing draws you in and you keep flipping the pages. I stayed up until 230 am reading this and immediately bought the second book. I would highly recommend this read for any suspense romance reader!!

Loved it!

From the very beginning, you think you know what is happening and then you start to question because the pieces aren't connected and then BOOM. You start questioning again what you think you just solved. The suspense and mystery never ends which is great.

I love the chemistry of Drew and Breanne, they are able to grow and learn from each other. Can't wait to finish reading their story in Rundown.

I had received and started reading this book back in March, I was 54% into the story, utterly hooked. Unfortunately, I had to stop reading, life happened, and I wasn't able to continue reading until a few days ago. What is amazing is that through the two months I was unable to pick this book back up I thought about it, I thought about Drew and Breanne. I craved this book and these characters. I was so captivated by the first part of the book that I did not have to go back and re-read. The story ...more
