SPECIAL PRICING FOR THE FIRST TWO WEEKS!!!

USA TODAY Bestselling author Melissa Schroeder returns with the much anticipated Santini spin off series: Semper Fi Marines

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.

Meet the Author

From an early age, USA TODAY Bestselling author Melissa Schroeder 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, over twelve nominations for AAD Bookies and regularly tops the bestseller lists on Amazon, All Romance Ebooks and Barnes & Noble. She recently was named Author of the Year by the Bookie Awards from Authors After Dark.
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.

    Too short

    ## Way too short. I read this in one hour. It started off really good, thought I would love it because I adored the strong heroine. BUT....then.....BAM, they're getting married. The end. The middle of the story was missing entirely. Wasted money.

    I think the Johnson brothers just might out do the Santini broth

    I think the Johnson brothers just might out do the Santini brothers in the HOTNESS category. The story of Bran and TK was smoking hot once we got them into bed. The fun loving banter was very honest and realistic. The story line was a friend to lover story where nether one could see what was right in front of their face. Both Bran and TK where prideful, guarded, stubborn when it comes to love. This was an amazing start to a new series. Can’t wait for more of the HOT bodied Johnson brothers.

    Sweet Friends to Lovers Story Bran and Tess grew up as best fri

    Sweet Friends to Lovers Story

    Bran and Tess grew up as best friends and as most best friends go, they know exactly what makes the other tick. And at the same time they are closer than most people would think possible, maybe too close. 
    This closeness was tested and it put a strain on their friendship, but they didn't let it ruin them. They made the adjustments, but once they came to work in the same town, that closeness brought up feelings that neither one of them were ready to handle... AT FIRST... 
    This story was definitely a sweet friends to lovers story that taught them that they had to fight for what they wanted (IF it was that important to them!) 
    The Semper Fi Marines series is a new series, but it includes charactes from the Santinis Series which makes it that much more fun. 
    Definitely loved the start of this series. I can't wait to see what is in store for the rest of the brothers.

    Loved it!

    I love Romance novels, the erotic parts are great don't get me wrong but, that's not the reason I read them. It's all about the love and how it's played out in the book. This book is the perfect combination and I recommend it to Romance readers everywhere.

    Enjoyed it but ending a little abrupt

    Ms. Schoeder's bio says she was a miltary brat. 7th generation myself. I also see that she married miltary after swearing she wouldn't. I said that too & stuck to it. When my husband of 25 years talked about joining after he finished graduate school, I warned him that he would get divorce papers in the mail if he did. I thank Ms. Schroeder and her husband for their service, because I ASSURE you, they BOTH serve.

    3.5 stars Tess has been in love with Bran since she can remembe

    3.5 stars

    Tess has been in love with Bran since she can remember, but he has always treated her like a little sister. Of course, when she has finally started getting over her infatuation with Bran he comes barreling into her life.

    Bran has been denying his attraction to Tess ever since graduating from Annapolis. But now that he is living in close quarters with her and sees that she is dating and living her life, he realizes that his feelings for her are still there.

    I liked this story. Melissa Schroeder did a great job of drawing me into the story by bringing to the front the bond that Tess and Bran had developed as best friends. Their easy manner, trust and affection for each other jumped-off the page making it easier for me to see that there was more that could be developed between them.

    Bran was very passionate in his pursuit of Tess, but he was also tender and caring when she needed to be. I loved how conflicted he became by Tess' proposal. He was truly confused!

    Tess was also a great character to get to know. She was strong-minded and independent, but she also had a need to be loved by the man she care about and Bran delivered. Although he was a bit clueless and made a mess of it, he redeemed himself and made it all okay.

    Of course, their chemistry was off-the-charts HOT! I enjoyed their banter and how the sparks flew whenever they confronted each other. But most of all, I appreciated the emotions the author added to their interactions. It made their connection something more than mere friendship and their getting together viable in my eyes.

    Tease Me is the first book in the Semper Fi Marines and a great start to the series. I can't wait to read more about these men.

    All in all, Tease Me was a fun, sexy and short friends-to-lovers story.

    I received this title in exchange of my honest opinion.

    I love friends-to-lovers stories and this one is on the top of my list. Bran and Tess have known each other since high school. Something happened during high school graduation but neither spoke of it, then they each went their separate ways and and years later he ends up rooming with her as he is now stationed in the same area she is. He realizes how he cares for her, but doesn't think she feels anything for him and wants to show her, but it looks like she is moving on, so he has to make a move. And what a move it is! After this encounter she makes a proposition to him that he has to accept or he might lose her. But in the end, he makes her see things his way.

    I really enjoyed that Tess is a very opinionated and tough and strong woman. Bran had to really fight for her, which made their feelings for each other even stronger. Can't wait to read the next installment!

    A sexy, funny, feel good start to this new series.

    First she gave us The Santinis, now Melissa Schroeder is giving us the next set of hot brothers, in her newest military romance series, Semper Fi Marines. Meet the Johnsons.

    Just like the Santinis, these brothers are all about family. They live hard, play hard and love hard. Tease Me introduces us to Brandon, a Marine fighter pilot. His newest duty station places him back in the vicinity of his best friend from high school, college and the Naval Academy. While he's always managed to keep things platonic between them, he can't help but notice that she's grown into a beautiful, confident and capable woman. Worse still, he's not the only man to notice. Tess Keller has always had a crush on Bran, but he never looked at her as anything but a little sister. She moved on, but the feelings always lingered. Now he's back and behaving ... strangely. Surely he can't be interested. Can he?

    I love the friends to lovers trope, and I especially loved this couple at the center of it. Tess was a delightful heroine full of sass and confidence. At least until Bran's strange behavior around her made her think he could be interested. Given his dating history and his job, I didn't blame her for being a little weary. Despite the sexual awareness between them, I enjoyed the pacing of the story. They didn't rush into elevating their relationship status from best friends to lovers without considering the consequences. It also gave Bran ample opportunity to seriously consider his feelings, and hers. The dialogue never felt forced; I could hear the affection between them that had been there through the years. Add in a little flirtation between a jealous male and a head-strong woman and you get a nice dose of sarcasm. This story had all the elements I love in a romance: love, laughter and loyalty.

    Favorite line:

    "Because I don't want that. You know, it figures you would give me issues with this. Out of all the women I could have fallen in love with, it had to be the one who isn't easy."

    She raised her chin. "I've never been easy."

    "That's an understatement. I could have had any woman--"

    She snorted. "That's an exaggeration."

    We get to meet one of MJ's brother's Bran. Bran is now stationed on the same base as his best friend from high school Tess. Bran is a pilot and Tess is a nurse in the military.They both have ignored their true feelings for each other.Not thinking that that the other would welcome their love. With them so close we get to watch them blossom and it is so exciting watching them.
    Melissa Schroeder has done it again! You can can't pass up this deal for a wonderful love story for only .99. How can you miss this, you shouldn't.
