Easy going soldier Kale Montgomery, a self-proclaimed ladies man, has no plans of settling down, especially not with his best friend- the sexy, sassy schoolteacher Lucy Dawson. Their relationship, though unconventional, is mutually beneficial, and they wouldn't have it any other way. Friends with benefits? Casual lovers? Whatever you want to call it, they’re having fun, in and out of bed, and to them, that’s all that matters. At least that’s what they think, but how long can you spend in someone's bed before you find they're also infiltrating your heart?
As their casual fling with no strings attached progresses, it's not long before they realize they're both in way over their heads. One fateful night changes their lives forever in ways they could never have imagined, giving them the push to finally admit that maybe, just maybe they want more than they’ve let on. Their mutual attraction rapidly intensifies as it shifts from burning lust to unrelenting want, need, and possibly even love. Suddenly the idea of settling down doesn't seem so bad. In fact, it sounds pretty damn perfect.
Just when things seem to be falling into place, past pain and renewed insecurities rise to the surface and threaten to smother the flames of their passionate relationship, reminding them both why they’ve always kept the idea of love at arm's length. Will Kale and Lucy realize that what they've been waiting for is each other, or will the blazing whirlwind of their feelings burn out too quickly, causing it to all go up in smoke?
5.. Need to Stock up on some Kale STARS!!!
This was a friends to lovers story that won me over from the very first chapter.. These two met in the cutest way and didn't ever hide their attraction towards one another.. Due to some secrets in their past they were both OKAY just being "Friends with Benefits". An over due reunion with a night of pent up lust & passion led to an un planned pregnancy.
Kale has ruined me for any other Baby Daddy Hero's.. He was total perfection and undoubtedly irresistible.. He was sexy, charming, funny and protective.. He had some Demons to overcome which was his only flaw because he tried to bury them deep.. From the moment he found out Lucy was having his baby he made it known they were in it together!
Kale and Lucy were made for each other.. They just didn't know how to tell the other, but once they started opening up it was smooth sailing. When Kale came up with the name "Sprout" I fell for him hard and that just kept happening over and over again!
"Yeah, Sprout. I figured since I planted the seed, you've got a little Kale in there. Sprout only seems fitting, and I don't want to call it an "it" anymore, So Sprout it is"
The funny foodie and garden jokes had me laughing out load and I couldn't stop the giggles when he came up with "JAM"
"I'll do my part and make sure you eat lots and lots of Kale"
Inflame packed some serious Heat the Connection between them was off the charts HOT....
Kale and Lucy get an A+ !!
Loved both Epilogue's and can't wait to see what Tessa Teevan has in store for Xavier and the Wellington brothers..
