You make me crazy, too. Crazy in a way that makes me want to rearrange the earth so it’s laid out exactly the way you want it.”

Can you feel if both of your ovaries exploded? I swear to god, I felt it. There is no way that both of those suckers survived Will Caruso. No freaking way. So, Tessa Bailey, you now owe me a new set of ovaries. You better hope that Prime carries that shit, because I still can't even. Give me a dang second here.

Okay. I know the majority of my friends will love this. No cheating, no love triangle, no ow/om sex scenes or drama. A hot, loyal guy, a rich investor with Italian mafia genes conned by a drop-dead gorgeous strong-ish heroine. And let's not forget the big age difference. And forbidden love. Plus, the story is happening on the road. Oh, and a cute dog.

Me? I had fun. Sorta. But that’s about it.

The story is cute, only I’ll forget about it by tomorrow morning. And my eyes still hurt f

That’s right. Nothing, I mean NOTHING can prepare you for all that is filthy Will!

Yep, consider yourself warned, since this is just one of the many, many reasons for which Follow went straight to my SEXIEST READ of the year!

Jesus. If someone told me this morning a woman existed who could make me feel protective, jealous, horny, challenged and curious in the space of five minutes, I would have laughed until my

Overall Opinion: My instant gut reaction is that I really liked this! ...But after writing out my review I find that did have some issues with it. I always leave this section last when writing my reviews for that very reason! I really liked both characters and I loved their connection. I did feel like the amount of sex had this bordering on being classified (at least by me) as "erotica" -- but some people love that! I think even with as hot as it was (and I'm talking HOT!)

HOLY. MOTHER. OF. GOD. I am about to be very forward about this: my ovaries have disintegrated after reading this book. Boom! Exploded and disintegrated all over the place. I am not fucking joking AT ALL. This the filthiest book I’ve ever read by Tessa Bailey and that is saying something! Follow has just become my top favorite novel by this amazing author (and it’s very hard to say this when I absolutely love everything she writes..).

EPIC dirty talker alert!! If you love good dirty talkers then you should pick this up just for that. Hell, you should pick up everything Tessa Bailey writes because she is one of the best dirty talker authors out there.


This one managed to surprise me. It was dirty and hot without being superficial. It fairly oozed with sex and chemistry as only Tessa Bailey can write. And yet it had many in depth moments for both characters. It was full of delicious smut almost constantly and yet some

This was a fast paced romance following two characters that had an instant chemistry. Will and Teresa met under false pretenses but that didn't stop the connection from drawing them closer together. I actually really enjoyed the pace of their relationship and it was very well written so I never questioned the fact that they were falling for each other in such a short time frame.

The smexy scenes were a huge bonus in this story and I loved them. Will and Teresa w

Silly premise, insta-lust, insta-love, constant hard-ons that had me wondering how painful it must be, a hero who calls the heroine 'woman' most of the time, and last but not least, a heroine whose soaking wet panties made me think - more or less - of this:


Although, that gif reminds me also of another scene in the book. I'm sure it's not hard to guess.

Time to say goodbye to auto-buy TB books, me thinks.

A decent and quick read!

I actually enjoyed this one.
The story of the son of a mob boss on a road trip with his sick dog, and a woman just trying to get her little brother out of a bad situation with said mafia boss.
Teresa has got to get Will back to New York, but he just wants to spend some time he’s missed out on with his pup. What’s meant to be a con turns into so much more for these two. It’s definitely an instaATTRACTION read. Will is overly alpha at times, but it worked for me. Teresa is al

Tessa has never written a book like this. Almost all of her books are written in the third person, except Unfixable. In Follow, we have both pov’s and both are written in the first person, and Gah! Tessa needs to write first person more often!! This is also her first independent bo

Pure Tessa Bailey here!
Perfect if you are in the mood for something light, dirty talk kind of sexy and still meaningful emotions between two well rounded characters!

Tessa Bailey delivered here the very kind of characters that first made me fall in love with her books. A little tortured, a little fucked up, a little deviant... in the best way.
Her brand of steamy romance just naturally hits all my buttons, a touch of forbidden story and the guarantee of an HEA no matter what, that's what
This has got to be Tessa Bailey’s HOTTEST, most FILTHIEST romance yet! She’s taking the DIRTY TALK to a whole other level! Will Caruso will set your eReader ablaze with his mouth alone! I will never get enough of #DirtyWill!

“You’re giving yourself up to me and I’m taking it-keeping it-like a greedy motherfucker. Do you understand?”

FOLLOW is Tessa Bailey’s first self-published novel and she ROCKED IT OUT! The storyline was a little suspenseful, entertaining, heartwarming, AND of course SEXY
Loved it! Will is the perfect book boyfriend! This book was super HOT with lots of really well written steamy scenes. There was also a bit of suspense and an adorable dog named Southpaw. Perfect epilogue! I think this is my favorite book by this author. Highly recommend!!!

I wanted quick and easy audiobook to listen to while I was puttering around the house getting some errands done. They aren't something I usually enjoy but I didn't mind the two narrators. Unfortunately the story was just mediocre.

The story had potential and I always enjoy a fun road-trip. Southpaw, the goofy Great Dane, was one of the main things that kept me interested.

There was just too much repetition. Someone was al
Another sexy and entertaining read from Tessa Bailey.

You know you're going to get a good book out of her, and she didn't fail to hit the mark. Hot, likeable characters, enjoyable little storyline. I enjoyed the ride and it left me satisfied, can't ask for more.

When Teresa Valentini tries to save her brother from a life indebted to a wise guy, she ends up playing a dangerous game of deception with Will, who’s on a life-assessing cross country trip with his dog. What will happen? Will they make it? Yeah, you know what’s coming….super hot romance happens.

But the whole package put together?
She’s a gift from God.
I accept.

Follow is the story of Will and Teresa.
When Teresa's brother gets tangled up in the life she and her parents escaped from years ago, feeling responsible, Teresa ends up facing the evil Silas alone and getting coerced into doing his bidding to save her brother.

You know those Instagrams of gorgeous men who document their road trips with their dogs? Well, imagine a romance story for one of those men, and you have the wonder that is Follow. Of course, only Tessa Bailey could write about a hero who Instagrams his road trip with his dying dog and make it as fun and sexy and intense as this book is.

The honey-trap. A hidden motive. The deception and the play for the ultimate goal. At least that’s what Teresa Valentini sets out to do to get her baby brother out of the clutches of a mafia boss. And that admittedly, is a strange proposition that she gets—to seduce his son back to his place in the financial world.

‘Follow’ banks on a very strong, animalistic instant lust attraction that moves the plot along, as Teresa’s seduction plan doesn’t quite go as expected. But the buildup is thick and fa

Alpha j/p intense dirty-talking hero, check. Hot smexy times, check. Heroine who is not irritating, check. So why not 5 stars? Coz the first 10% bored me.. took me a few months to get past the first few chapters. Once Will and Teresa met, the sparks were off the charts. I loved their role playing, I loved their banter, I loved the quiet moments. I just wasn’t satisfied by the hero’s grovel in the end. He was really mean and hurtful when he found out about Teresa’s deception but he didn’t really ...more
