I was lucky to start reading this book early in its infancy. I anxiously waited for each chapter and was so happy when it all came together. This is absolutely by far this sweet authors best work ever . I honestly felt as if Steel Magnolias met and impregnated Fried green tomatoes. I seriously felt like I was in a movie and barely breathed the whole book. I highlighted more favorite parts than ever before and immediately had to go find Devils Kiss by Julie Garwood. Devin was pure male and full of life. I adored this amazing, strong, protective and loyal hero so much.
Everything about this story was spot on. The the story kept breathing life into each character but added in so much humor and perfectly moved the story along at the same time at the right pace. I am a sucker for suspense and this one really kept me on the edge of my seat. There was such a layer of mystery that added that gripping intensity that every great story needs to keep you invested. This author puts everything she's feeling into her story.  I'm just in awe.  I already want Poppy and Nate's story now. 
 
But Sienna and Bo are screaming at me too. 

The Aunts are perfect and a mix of the Golden Girls and and all those Steel Magnolias that I love.
 
 Funny and wise and I just will shut up because I'm going overboard. I can't find anything at all to complain about. This was different in the best of ways and just absolutely amazing.. Maybe it's because I felt like these people seemed so real to me.
Devin just had me swooning so much

“I’ll break down that wall you’ve erected brick by brick until you don’t feel the need to run scared from me.

The first rule of football--don't screw with a streak.

My career is finally looking up, and I'm leading a new pro team down the field every Sunday. No way will I mess with that. But when I meet the most stunning and captivating woman I've ever seen, I tell myself one night will have to be enough.

But it's not. And now I can't get her out of my mind. Even when I'm playing. Even when I need to focus. Even when I’m on the hottest streak of my life.

And it turns out, she's not just some random woman I met. She works for the team. My team.

***

I only have one goal this season--do my part as the team's lawyer to keep them out of trouble. Help rebuild their reputation on and off the field. There's no room for error and certainly no room for a secret tryst with a player . . . even if he's the quarterback.

Right?

When we reach her home, a cute little white bungalow, she gestures to the porch. 
It’s teeming with potted plants and flowers, as well as pizza coupons and takeout menus stuffed behind the mailbox next to the doorway.

 “Thank you, Andrew. For the drinks and the escort service.” 

I wiggle my eyebrows because she says escort in kind of a naughty way. 
“And thank you for the surf angel-slash-nurse work.” 

“My pleasure. I was happy to save a guy in distress.” 

I narrow my eyes and protest her description

. “Hey now. I’m not dude in distress.”
She whispers “just kidding” as she leans against her porch railing.

 I don’t think it’s intentional, but that pose shows off all her assets.
 The swell of her breasts in her tank top, her curvy hips, her strong legs. This woman just fucking does something to me. Turns me on, that’s what she does. Makes me hard as hell. Though she’s made it clear that the night ends right here, I intend to make the most of this good-bye.
I move closer to her and run my hand down her arm. I watch as goose bumps rise in its wake. My voice goes low. 

“Do you know what I’ve been thinking about?”
She tilts her head to the side. 

“What would that be, Andrew?”

 It still sounds funny to hear her call me that. But next time I see her I’ll tell her that everyone calls me Drew. With my other hand, I brush her hair off her shoulder, cataloging her reaction to my touch. The way she shivers. How she sways closer. The rush of breath on her lips.
 I bring my mouth to her ear, and whisper. 

“What it would be like to kiss you.” I pull back, wanting to look at her.

 Her lips are parted, then she licks them and swallows. 
It’s like she’s taking a step closer, saying go for it.

 “You should absolutely find out then,” she says, soft and inviting. 

 My fingers travel from her shoulder, up to her hair, and I rope my hand through those blond locks. I pull her close, savoring the warm feel of her sun-kissed skin and the smell of sand, surf, and sunshine in her hair. I dip my mouth to hers, clasping her face in my hands. 
When I nip her bottom lip, she gasps. It’s such an alluring sound, and it turns me the fuck on even more. My dick would very much like to go inside her house tonight, but kissing is all that’s on the menu, so I kiss her in a way that’ll leave her wanting more.
 Because I want so much more of her, and I also want her to know that.
 I’m not sure how I went from leaving the field when practice ended this morning, to spending the afternoon surfing to get my mind off all the changes I’m sure are coming, to kissing this beautiful stranger outside her Venice Beach home. But hell if I want to analyze this moment.
 I spend my working hours making decisions, analyzing, choosing. Then executing. Right now, I want to get lost in something that no one else controls but this woman and me.

Release Blitz: Words I Couldn't Say by Tessa Teevan @TessaTeevan

Title: Words I Couldn’t Say
Series: Promise in Prose #1
Author: Tessa Teevan
Release Date: Nov 22, 2016
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Photo Credit: Sara Eirew Photography
You know the old adage “if you love something, set it free?"
It's the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard.
The dumbest thing I've ever done.
I loved her. I lost her. Hell, I let her go. And then spent five miserable years without her.
To cope with the loss, I put pen to paper and wrote her a love story, knowing when she was ready she’d hear the words I couldn’t say all those years ago.
Turned out, not only would she hear them, but when Hollywood came calling, I made sure she got the lead role. After all, no one else could portray the character whom she’d inspired.
Now she's within arms' reach and finally, she'll know the truth in my heart.
Because that other cliché, “Actions speak louder than words?”
I’m going to prove it.
My words may have brought Ava Banks back into my life; I have to be enough to make her stay.
The air around us was silent save for the crickets chirping off in the distance. The cool Cincinnati breeze nipped at my skin while I waited for his reaction. When I’d started writing this novel, it had been an ode to my past love. My past life. But then it’d taken on a life of its own and become so much more. Which had made it that much more poignant. That much harder to fathom the one word that’d been haunting me for years.
Goodbye.
At long last, he turned to the final page and sucked in a breath. My stomach twisted in knots because he was about to read the end. And I didn’t know how he’d interpret it. Half scared he’d tell me that I’d lost my mind and no one would ever want to read this story, especially with that ending.
He didn’t make me wait long. As his head slowly rose, I was taken aback at the tears shining in his usually cheerful eyes. This man, who had always been like a second father to me, had been reduced to tears by my words. My words. Words we both knew for whom they were meant. And, instead of calling me a fool or attempting to kill me, he watched me with tearful appreciation, switching between nodding and shaking his head as if trying to process it all.
I didn’t know how to react, so I simply stared at him, waiting for him to say something. Anything.
He closed the manuscript and set it on the table in front of us before taking a long swig from his whiskey glass. I followed suit and enjoyed the smoky burn that did little to soothe my nerves.
“Jesus Christ,” he muttered, his eyes locking in on mine. “Tucker. You did it. You fucking did it,” he whispered, seemingly unashamed of his emotional display.
I nodded, the same emotion welling up inside me when I remembered the ending of my first novel. So many love stories begin with the girl who got away. Mine wasn’t any different. Not only in my novel, but in real life as well. Ava Banks was, and always would be, that girl for me. But, instead of slipping through my fingers, she’d made the conscious decision to leave. And, like most dumbass men, I’d let her. Hell, I’d pushed her away. I’d regretted it ever since.
But, now, I was hoping like hell I could get the second chance Trevor did. Hoping like hell my story would turn out differently than his. But, either way, I was putting myself out there, as terrifying as that was. She finally, finally would hear the words I couldn’t say all those years ago.
Now, I just had to wait to see what she’d do about it. 

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/27268033-words-i-couldn-t-say





Words I Couldn't Say is by far a top favorite if mine for 2016.
I read for the emotion hidden among the pages. I want to feel everything. That means truly that yes I want to hurt, I want to cry and I want to love hard. I am sort of a prejudiced reader and its not something I care to change. I simply do not want to read about disloyal characters and I don't want to have all the sleeping around by my characters. I simply want a love story that I can not only believe in but one that I respect. I want to walk away after closing the story feeling like I not only lived their journey but that I liked them as people. So Tessa Teevan is a go to author for loyal, passionate, funny and breathtakingly beautiful stories and characters.
 
 Her men are flawed yet human and honorable. Her heroines are strong yet vulnerable and so tender hearted.
Ava and Tucker took those attributes and grew into a couple that really melted my heart. I felt all those feels I mentioned. I even can say I got angry and frustrated. Ava broke my heart but she learned from the pain and then put her lesson to work and that is what counts. 

 But the truth is that everything they did brought them to their truth. Tucker also knew where he went wrong and going about making things right in Tucker's amazing way was just perfect. 
This sweet healing story was filled with lessons for both characters.


The main lesson being they were meant to be and that life is short so grab your happiness and don't let go. If by chance it slipped through your fingers for a time.. Go after it. It's never too late. Their steadfast true loyalty will make them a favorite couple of mine forever. I adore this author and her truly romantic heart.
