Release Blitz & Review: Tease by Melanie Harlow


I didn’t mean to say I was engaged to a hot billionaire–it just slipped out.

TEASE, an all new steamy fake engagement, small town romantic comedy from USA Today and #1 Amazon bestselling author Melanie Harlow, is now available!

I didn’t mean to say I was engaged to a hot billionaire–it just slipped out.

In my defense, I’d had a really bad haircut, a really strong drink, and I was trying to save face in front of the Mean Girl at my high school reunion.

Lucky for me, I happen to know a hot billionaire. Hutton French and I have been friends forever, and even though big social gatherings are not his thing, I called him from the coat closet and begged him for a favor–show up and play my fake fiancé for the night.

Except that word of our engagement spreads like wildfire. Our families are ecstatic. We’re front page news. My little food blog is launched into the stratosphere.

Of course, I offer to set the record straight right away, but Hutton wants to give it a little time–the phony engagement will keep his matrimony-mad mother and every matchmaking granny in town off his back.

He even suggests I move in with him to make the ruse more real.

And we don’t stop there.

We practice kissing. Undressing each other. Saying things–and doing things–we’d never dare if we weren’t pretending. Because it’s all for show, right? We’re just role-playing. Hutton doesn’t want a real relationship, and I don’t want to get hurt. But the more time we spend faking it, the more I start to wonder.

Could Hutton French and I actually be right for each other, or is it all just one big tease?

I loved Tease! I was so excited to read this book when I found out it was going to be Felicity and Hutton and Melanie Harlow did NOT disappoint! 

I can 100% relate to Felicity and her awkwardness and nervous habits. She was such a sweet heroine. She does feel a little lost in life which I think is something we can all relate to. But Hutton is her rock and has been there for her when she needed him. 

Hutton is amazing! I really loved him as a character. While he’s a billionaire, he doesn’t act super cocky and is just super sweet around Felicity. They’ve been best friends since they were in school so their relationship is already formed very well and you could feel how much they cared for each other. He was the ultimate sweet hero with the side of sexy.

After Felicity blurts out at her high school reunion that she is dating a billionaire, she calls Hutton to come and save her and pretend to be her fiancé… and of course he comes straight there to have her back no matter the cost and how uncomfortable he is in social settings. 

I loved seeing their relationship progress while they were both acting like they were only fake dating. I loved how natural their relationship change felt, they were still best friends but now they could really be open with how much they loved each other. 

This was a fun read and is now one of my favourites in the series. It’s a super sweet romance with a little bit of spice. I would say it doesn’t feel like your normal billionaire romance but I loved that about it!
