BLOG TOUR & GIVEAWAY – Scandalous by Missy Johnson


Title – Scandalous
Author – Missy Johnson
Publication Date – January 22, 2015
Series – Tease, #2.5



Our past defines who we are.

There are things from my past that I will do anything to keep hidden.

Things that I know Beth wouldn’t understand. How could she when I don’t understand what happened myself?

I blame myself everyday for the things I’ve done, and as I get closer to Beth I realise that maybe I’m not ready for this. Maybe I don’t deserve her.

Regardless, I know she can never find out.

But if there was one thing I know better than anyone, it’s that secrets don’t stay hidden for long.

And sometimes when they break, they are scandalous.


I’ve been anxiously awaiting the release of Scandalous ever since Missy Johnson announced that she would be writing it. It is a novella in the Tease series that brings together Coop, Mia, Beth, and Roman. That means I expected all of the sauciness of the previous books but multiplied. Unfortunately, while I did enjoy it, I can’t say that it’s my favorite of the series either.

As I was reading, I just kind of felt like the story fell flat. The beginning seemed to be a little all over the place and didn’t really connect with the ending in my opinion. I couldn’t understand the point of some of the conversations or things that happened; it almost felt rushed to me. Furthermore, the plot was pretty straightforward with getting the characters from point A to point B. The shining light for me was seeing the interaction between all the main characters. Because we got their individual stories in the first two books, it was perfect to see how becoming friends for the four of them would work out – especially given the nature of Beth and Cooper’s relationship. It was nice to see the conflicts arise and need to be worked out for the individual characters, as well as their counterparts. I also loved the independence that Beth was working toward, but I do wish there was more of it. The mystery surrounding Roman came unraveled and I actually really appreciated his whole back story.

All in all, this wasn’t a bad book but it’s certainly not my favorite either. I wish more attention would have been paid to Beth’s discovery about her father or deeper discussion into Roman’s background. It felt like those were the driving forces of the book but just barely touched upon. I am a big fan of the ending though, and it definitely filled my heart with love and hope!
