~*~*~ RELEASE DAY BLITZ & REVIEW ~*~*~ Escalation by Tessa Teevan

Author: Tessa Teevan
Series: Clandestine Affairs #2
The moment Rafe appeared on her doorstep, he was everything Brie Latham didn’t know she needed. Sexy. Mysterious. Provocative. The absolute opposite of her domineering ex. Like a white knight in the form of a rugged, handsome construction worker, he freed her from her cage, allowing her to spread her wings and find herself again. To find love again.

Just as she was ready to give in and finally admit her feelings for him, her past swooped back in, death and destruction in its path, causing her to question everything she knows.And everything she feels.Was their relationship all just smoke and mirrors? Was she destined to repeat the vicious cycle with yet another manipulative man, only to crash and burn yet again?

Who is Rafe Matthews, and will Brie survive long enough to finally discover the truth?


While I hang my head, shame and remorse fill me. I promised to protect her. And what did I do? I let her down.

I should’ve known that it would end up like this. I should’ve seen it coming. Yet my mind was clouded as my days and nights—and, soon, my heart—were filled with her, and she was all I could see. I let my guard down, and this is where it got me. Where it got us.

I never got to tell her the truth.

I never got to tell her how I feel.

I will never forgive myself if I never get the chance.

And I will spend the rest of my days hunting the man who did this to her. When I find him, I will kill him.

Because for her? I’d do anything.

Review (1)

 Escalation is the second book in Tessa Teevan’s Clandestine Affairs series, and picks up right where the first book leaves off (that cliffhanger! OMG!!) There’s so much I want to say about this book, but I hate spoilers, so I’ll do the best I can! This book has it all–drama, romance, mystery. And this story is HOT! Plenty of steam, but not enough to overpower the storyline. Tessa definitely has a gift for telling a story. She slowly draws you in, with enough twists and turns to keep you guessing but not confused, and the next thing you know it’s 3 hours later, you’re 50% in and you don’t want to put your kindle down! This is the one spoiler I will give–this book has a cliffhanger, and what a cliffhanger it is!! Hey Tessa……you ready to release book 3 yet?
Book 1: INSTIGATION – ON SALE for 99¢!
Tessa Teevan
Tessa is a twenty something book junkie who loves creating books boyfriends as much as she loves reading them. Government worker by day, writer by night, she gets little sleep, but couldn’t imagine her life any less hectic. She lives just outside of Dayton, Ohio and has been married to her own book boyfriend for nine years.
If she’s not writing or looking through tons of photos of hot men, all in the name of research, then you can probably find her curled up with my Kindle, ignoring the rest of the world. Her other obsessions include red wine, hot men, country music, and all things Stone Sour.
