Release Day Blitz - Tease by Missy Johnson




 



Male escort.

That got your attention.

Some of the most powerful and well known women in the country pay to have sex with me, some of them married. Some are into more than just straight sex, which is why they call me. Bondage, power play, submission…nothing is off the table. I will do anything for the right price.

The stories I could tell you about a certain high profile congresswoman, or that innocent blonde actress. Trust me, she’s not so innocent.

Guys would kill for my job. I’m living the fucking dream. Meaningless sex, no relationship hang-ups and I’m rolling in the dough. Life is perfect, just the way it is.

Until I meet her.

She changes everything.

She makes me want more than I’ve ever wanted for myself and she believes in me. But she also thinks I sell insurance. I can’t stop what I do, but I can’t give her up.

Eventually, my two worlds are going to collide and when they do, shit will hit the fan.

 




 

 
Never thought I'd consider hiring a male escort, until I met Liam Cooper aka Coop. Legs squirmed while reading and fire alarms went off from all the steam. With Coop as an escort #SignMeUpAsAClient
 
Meet Coop
 
Liam Cooper aka Coop may be a male escort but don’t let his occupation define him. He works hard (quite a few innuendos come to mind lol) to respect his clients’ privacy as well as fulfilling their desires/needs. This career path wasn’t a “childhood dream”, rather an outlet offered to him at a low point in his early college years, when options were bleak and his heart was heavy with sorrow. Accepting the life of an escort offered Coop more than what men think about half the day, sex. It offered him no strings attached sex, in addition to loads of cash. So why not make a career out of it right?
 
Liam Cooper
 
Whew, damn if Coop isn’t good at what he does. Missy Johnson should have a Warning Label: Need Fire Extinguisher on hand the sex scenes are so hot! Talk about needing fans installed in your panties. You will be so hot and bothered you will be ready to throw morals out the window and turn over your credit cards to hire Coop’s services for yourself!
 
Tease
 
We meet a handful of Coop’s clients from all different careers, sexual desires and personalities. Bethany Masters, the teenage Hollywood “it girl” shares the most interactions with Coop. The banter between them can turn you off a tad because they really do mesh so well as brother and sister, yet have sex. You’d think Eww but the scenes still hold your attention. You will never think of the back of a dark theater the same again when Coop shows what he can do there.
The thing I liked most about Coop, other than his performances, is his honesty. Any question you may ponder while reading, Coop voices himself. You also see the internal conflict he has with himself of his continual pursuit as an escort. So why does a down to earth, smart, considerate guy like Coop continue to be an escort? It all boils down to one thing, FAMILY. Coop takes the weight of caring/providing for his sister and mother (since the death of his father) on his shoulders. Is his method unorthodox? Hell yes, but does he deny that, Hell NO! He feels enormous guilt for hiding his profession from his family, but does not know how else to bring in as large of a cash flow to assist in his mother’s medical needs.
Enter in Mia, his sister’s childhood best friend, his first crush, the girl who gave him his first blow job. Yup 12years later he still hasn’t forgotten the girl. She is Coop’s game changer.
 
Mia Westfield
 
The chemistry sizzles between these two off the bat. Yet, both have reservations. For Coop, a relationship would be an added complication to his life. On top of that the guilt he’d feel to ask a woman like Mia to accept his sleeping with women on the side for money. For Mia, she is rebounding from a failed marriage from a husband she loved but he fell out of love from her. We don’t receive too much insight into the background of Mia’s story, but then again this story is about Coop discovering he is more than an escort. A tad unrealistically, these two are thrown together. Matched to live together by Coop’s hilarious loving sister, Nic but enjoyable all the same. The steam between these two is not as scorching as it is between Coop and his clients. I believe this is due to Coop holding back, his guilt of hiding what he does from Mia, as well as what he experiences with Mia can be seen as sensually hot not erotic. 
I was disappointed that it took the climax for Coop to be exposed as an escort, rather than him coming clean himself with Mia. There is some angst following the fallout of his exposure but it wraps up pretty quickly which I was okay with. Missy don’t draw out the conflict which is refreshing. The climax forces Coop to open his eyes and reset his priorities, making him realize aside from his family, Mia is high up there. Even though Mia’s character isn’t as well developed as Coop’s, her presence is the cable jump Coop needed to recognize Liam Cooper is capable of being more than an escort.
 
Liam not Coop
 
The secondary characters—Nic and her husband Jake and Bethany all will grab your attention. The banter between Coop and his sister had me laughing so hard, their interactions are a perfect depiction of sibling love. While this book differs from Missy Johnson’s usual storylines, she never ceases to amaze me with how well done the male POV is written. She splashes more humor, crude and sarcastic, while also intensifying the steam that is her sex scenes. I couldn’t stop squirming while reading. Amazing job Missy you have me hooked. I can’t wait to get my hands on Beth’s story in book 2 in hopes of also seeing the continued growth of Liam and Mia’s relationship.

Liam Cooper aka Coop is a New York City male escort servicing the elite, celebrities and social class. In his words, he is damn good at it. He is hot, sexy, sweet, and knows how to please a woman which makes him the go to guy. The main driving force for Coop to be in this type of business is that he can support and help pay the medical treatments for his mother.
 
In Tease, readers are immersed into the world of male escorting. We get to see Coop's everyday life which consists of mostly lots and lots of sex and the different types of sex each client demands from BDSM, threesome etc. Let me tell you Coop is not lacking in stamina and leaves all his clients satisfied. Although Coop enjoys the sex, he distances himself from forming any real relationship since he had experienced what it was like to be hurt and heart-broken.
 
That all changes when Mia, his old crush waltzes back into his life. To form any real chance with a relationship with Mia, Coop must decide whether to continue being a male escort or leave the job that he only knows that will support his mom's growing need of medical attention.

My Thoughts: 

I did not love how fast Coop's relationship with Mia went. I was expecting a little more plot development in the romance department. I wanted to see the couple connect more and understand the growing attraction and love they felt. I also wanted to know more about Mia. Although Coop was attracted to Mia, in the back of my mind, I thought there was a strong possibility that he would end up with Bethany. I thought there was more of a connection, friendship and attraction between Bethany and Coop. What Tease lacked in romance, it made up in lots of HOT STEAMY SEX SCENES.

Overall, I did enjoy this book even though it lacked in romance. I always enjoy reading a book in male's POV. This book had humor, lots of sex, and gives readers an insider perspective of a male escort. I am looking forward to Promiscuous (book 2) on Bethany's story since I really liked her character in Tease.

Missy lives in a small town in Central Victoria with her husband, and her confused pets (a dog who think she's a cat, a cat who thinks he's a dog...you get the picture).

When she's not writing, she can usually be found looking for something to read.
