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 thats about it.

This was a cute little story; Im not denying it. Only, there will be consequences to pay. I

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.

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!

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 Ive ever read by Tessa Bailey and that is saying something! Follow has just become my top favorite novel by this amazing author (and its very hard to say this when I absolutely love everything she writes..).

Follow is Tessas newest standalone novel

4.5 stars

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

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

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 hes missed out on with his pup. Whats meant to be a con turns into so much more for these two. Its definitely an instaATTRACTION read. Will is overly alpha at times, but it worked for me. Teresa is all

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.
5 Nothing-but-Will Stars!!!

Will is going down in the books as one of my favorites!!!! Definitely Top favorites of Tessas and Top favorites.EVAH!!! Checks all of my boxes and clenches all of my inner muscles (wink)!!!

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 povs and both are written in the first person, and Gah! Tessa needs to write first person more often!! This is also her first independent book,

And this had me almost crying thinking about the poor doggie.

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 Baileys HOTTEST, most FILTHIEST romance yet! Shes 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!

Youre giving yourself up to me and Im taking it-keeping it-like a greedy motherfucker. Do you understand?

FOLLOW is Tessa Baileys first self-published novel and she ROCKED IT OUT! The storyline was a little suspenseful, entertaining, heartwarming, AND of course SEXY as hell!
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.

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. If you know me, then you know I adore anything and everything Tessa writes she has yet to disappoint, because

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, whos on a life-assessing cross country trip with his dog. What will happen? Will they make it? Yeah, you know whats coming.super hot romance happens.

Chitra *CJ*

But the whole package put together?
Shes 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.
Her assignment: to lure back his son Will from a road trip he's taking with his dying dog Southpaw across the globe

A wonderful story
The honey-trap. A hidden motive. The deception and the play for the ultimate goal. At least thats 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 getsto 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 Teresas seduction plan doesnt quite go as expected. But the buildup is thick and fast

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 wasnt satisfied by the heros grovel in the end. He was really mean and hurtful when he found out about Teresas deception but he didnt really ...more

Teresa is mine. My bones know it. My head. Even the heart I thought was too damaged and scabbed over to be touched knows she belongs with me.

I devoured this book and Im so mad that I havent read it earlier! This is my first five star of 2020 and I cant wait to own a paperback copy of my shelves. Tessa Bailey wrote a story that kept me thirsting for more and I couldnt get enough of Teresa and Will.

I was unsure how their story would play out but these two surprised me from the beginning. Teresa

Tessa has brought another new style to her writing. This one is again different in the absolute best way.

This book had everything I crave in a good story: great plot, amazing heroine and hero, a lovable pet that plays the sets the story in motion, heat that can singe the page and emotion that sweeps you away.

Will Caruso... you are one filthy, filthy man and I for one looooovvveee your dirty talking and the ability to back it up in your actions. Here's a man on
