Tease Me (Semper Fi Marines) by Melissa Schroeder with Review

A man who thinks he has what he wants.
Bran Johnson always knew he wanted to be a Marine. What makes it even better is longtime gal pal TK is now stationed at the same base. Unfortunately, Bran is having a hard time dealing with his feelings when he realizes that TK is considered a hot commodity on base. Worse, he finds himself taking a backseat to her admirers.
A woman who always wished for more.
Tess Keller has loved Bran since they were in high school. The former football captain always treated her like a friend so she tried to move on. Unfortunately, he's in her business constantly now. One passionate argument leads to more than either of them expected. Tess knows it isn't going to last because Bran is never going to settle down. So, to save face, she suggests they stay friends, only with the side benefit of being sometime lovers.
A Marine determined to win at all costs.
Bran agrees to the friends with benefits idea just to keep himself close to Tess. She might think he's not around for the long haul, but this is one Johnson brother who knows exactly what he wants…and just how to get it. And what he wants is Tess in his bed and in his life forever. Nothing will stop him, not even Tess herself.
From an early age, Melissa loved to read. First, it was the books her mother read to her including her two favorites, Winnie the Pooh and the Beatrix Potter books. She cut her preteen teeth on Trixie Belden and read and reviewed To Kill a Mockingbird in middle school. It wasn’t until she was in college that she tried to write her first stories, which were full of angst and pain, and really not that fun to read or write. After trying several different genres, she found romance in a Linda Howard book.
Since the publication of her first book in 2004, Melissa has had close to fifty romances published. She writes in genres from historical suspense to modern day erotic romance to futuristics and paranormals. Included in those releases is the bestselling Harmless series. In 2011, Melissa branched out into self-publishing with A Little Harmless Submission and the popular military spinoff, Infatuation: A Little Harmless Military Romance. Along the way she has garnered an epic nomination, a multitude of reviewer’s recommended reads, over five Capa nods from TRS, three nominations for AAD Bookies and regularly tops the best seller lists on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
Since she spent her childhood as a military brat, Melissa swore never to marry military. But, as we all know, Fate has her way with mortals. She is married to an AF major and is raising her own brats, both human and canine. She spends her days giving in to her addiction to Twitter, counting down the days until her hubby retires, and cursing the military for always sticking them in a location that is filled with bugs big enough to eat her children.

Tease Me 
By Melissa Schroeder
Review by Wendy Shhh, Mommy's in the Bathroom.,.Reading
4 stars

Tease Me (Semper Fi Marines) is a spin off series from The Santini Brothers.
Brandon ‘Bran” Johnson is MJ‘s brother (from Leo Santini’s book.)
Bran and Tess were best friends in high school, and Tess had a crush on Bran, but Bran was a known player. Tess has given up on the thought of Bran and played her own game, and doing well for herself, at least until Bran gets stationed in her town. With Bran so close, will she be able to stomp down those feelings. When Bran finally sees Tess again he realizes that she has grown up and he wants more, but is it more than she can give?
First thing that I liked about this book was that in the very being Melissa Schroeder gives the readers a list of military acronyms and meanings. This is a plus for non-military people that wouldn’t know them.
I really enjoyed the dynamic between Bran and Tess and the banter between the two. The sex was hot, hot, hot, but not enough. I really was left wanting more! This is a short novella (80 pages or so) and I really feel this story could have been awesome had it been 250-300 pages.
Looking forward to the next installment of this series
