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?

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Tease is the eighth book in the Cloverleigh Farms series by Melanie Harlow. You can read each book as standalone but I recommend reading the series since interconnected. And this is the third book in the second generation! It’s time for Mack and Frannie’s daughter, Felicity to find her happily ever after.
Felicity wasn’t part of the it crowd in high school so she really wasn’t looking forward to her high school reunion. She was only going since she was catering the appetizers. She knew she would be running into the mean girl but what she didn’t expect out of her mouth was telling her that she was engaged to a hot billionaire. Not only a hot billionaire but her best friend, Hutton. It was time to send out the bat signal and get him to the party. The lie was only supposed to be for an hour tops but she should had known it would be all over time by morning…
Apparently, everyone knew this was going to happen. Fifteen years of friendship and never once had they crossed the line but nobody was shocked by their engagement except them. They had to go through with this. It had its benefits. It was only going to be for a month. No big deal. Some hand-holding, some kissing, some make-believe. And it was make-believe until it starting feeling too real. They had a plan. No one would get hurt. It was just some fun but could it really be more?
Holy. Hotness. It was always the quiet ones, right? Hot damn, Hutton is ridiculously nerdy hot. Felicity and Hutton always saw each other but now, it was more intense, emotional, and right. I loved these two. They are both adorable and sexy AF. They made me swoon, laugh, and cry! I can’t wait for the next book.
P.S. Make sure to get the bonus scene!
“I could practice undressing you.”
“I definitely think you should,” she panted.
She was familiar to me, and yet she was a revelation.
“Those heels have been driving me crazy all night. I want to do such bad things to you in those heels.”
