Fall in love with the entire gang in the Explosive series! Each standalone romance contains saucy heroines, sexy heroes, and a whole lot of love between the pages. Enjoy five incredible stories whose pages are loaded with passionate love, burning desire, and a whole lot of steam! Second chance romance, friends with benefits, surprise pregnancy, marriage of convenience, and laugh out loud friends to lovers, what more could you want?
Alexa Sullivan-Tate, a young widow, and Jace McAllister, her first love, reconnect in this passionate second-chance romance. But when love has slipped through your fingertips before, how can you trust it will once again remain? They loved and lost before, but can they dispel the ghosts of the past and discover a new future?
Sparks fly and tempers flare when Charlie Davenport, a feisty brunette, crosses paths with wounded warrior, Knox Wellington. Their chemistry is undeniable, but the chip on his shoulder threatens to destroy any hope of him wooing the sweet, southern volunteer send to help with his rehabilitation. Head butts, patience is tested, and flames of passion ignite as they dance around their mutual attraction, both jaded from broken pasts. Will they finally be able to get over the pain of the past or will their relationship be reduced to ashes before it can actually begin?
For sexy soldier Kale Montgomery and sweet, sassy schoolteacher Lucy Dawson, love was never in the cards. Their relationship, though unconventional, is mutually beneficial. One fateful night changes their lives forever in ways they could never imagine, giving them the push to admit that maybe, just maybe, they want more than they let on. Will Kale and Lucy realize what they’ve been waiting for is each other, or will the whirlwind of their romance cause the passion to burn out too quickly, causing it all to go up in smoke?
Kalli Montgomery never expected to propose to Xavier Cruz, even though she’s been in love with the sexy, single father for as long as she can remember. He never expected to accept, but when circumstance threatens to take his daughter from him, he’ll do whatever it takes, even if it means marrying a woman he doesn’t love. This marriage of convenience has one rule: absolutely no falling in love. Easier said than done. Throw together a girl who believes rules are meant to be broken, and a man whose entire career revolves around following orders, you get a recipe for disaster. What could possibly go wrong?
Where do babies come from? The question every parent dreads hearing has finally fallen from the lips of six-year-old Ava Banks, the curious, precocious daughter of high school sweethearts, Jeremy and Sierra. Normally blunt as can be, they find themselves struggling to find the right words to answer her. So instead, they rewind sixteen years to that one fateful day where a game of Seven Minutes in Heaven inevitably led to life-long romance filled with laughter, love, and many, many mishaps along the way.
Falling in love with your best friend? It’s the most incredible thing in the world. As long as it lasts. When the world comes crashing down around you, can even the strongest relationship withstand great tragedy?
“Sorry, sweetheart, but you’re going to have to hit a lot harder than that to leave a mark on my skin,” he prods, further irritating me, causing me to ball my hand into a fist again, ready to accept his challenge.
“Let’s get a couple of things straight here, asshole. First of all, when I introduced myself to you last night, did I say, ‘Hey, sexy, I’m Charlotte. I want a good fuck and you look just like the guy to give it to me’? Well, did I?” I ask, seething with anger as he hesitates to answer me. Sure, I may have thought about his lips on my skin, but I never would’ve gone home with him on the first night, no matter what Lucy advised me to do.
He blinks at me, looking from my fist to my face. “Uh…no?”
“Exactly, so you can forget that whole part of your argument, but thank God you’re so fucking noble that you won’t sleep with another man’s woman. Seriously. Fucking kudos. I’ll have to get you a cookie for that.” He snorts, and I glare at him, shutting him up.
“So second of all, did you ever ask if I have a boyfriend? Not that it should matter to you since you blew me off when I simply told you my name, but did you ever ask if I had a boyfriend?”
Again, I get a blank stare before he lets out another, “No.”
“So then ask me.”
He clears his throat before he asks the question. “Charlotte, do you have a boyfriend?”
Giving him a sweet smile that’s still laced with venom, I answer him. “No, Knox, for your information, I do not have a boyfriend. I did, however, have a fiancé until a couple of months ago. It looks like we have one thing in common. I, like you, cannot stand cheaters.”
I really enjoyed this story. Alexa had to deal with something so tragic at such a young age. She lost her husband in a car accident and all she can remember is him telling her that “He f!cking hates her sometimes.” These words have haunted her for over a year and she doesn’t know how to move on.
Jace is such a sweet guy who you can’t help but fall in love with him. Alexa and Jace were best friends in high school, and she had feelings for him and he had feelings for her but both thought the other wasn’t interested in anything but friendship till Jace’s graduation night he decides to drop the ball on Alexa and tell her he has feelings for her.
He left and 10 years have passed. Not seeing each other and talking to each other in 10 years you wouldn’t think a connection you had so long ago would still be there. They have both gone through a lot in life and want to reconnect and see what the future holds for them.
Read Ignite and find out if Alexa and Jace take advantage of their second chance at love. Read this story and find out if its easy, if it is hard and if they are willing to fight for what they believe is true love. I give this book 4 stars
Tessa Teevan made me fall in love with a man in uniform! Not just once but twice!! Jace was awesome in Ignite (book 1) And boy oh boy did Knox give me butterflies in Incinerate. I love when an author can write from both POVs in a book and make it flow so well. With both POVs I feel like I get the best of both worlds. Tessa knew when it was the right time to switch gears and go from Knox to Charlie.
Knox was a man who built up a brick wall around his heart and hadn’t let his guard down in 10+ years. Letting go of his family and someone that devastated him many years ago haunted him and he couldn’t move forward with his life. Love wasn’t an option for him. To give his heart to someone just so they could just rip it out was something he wasn’t willing to risk.
Charlie on the other hand was hurt and not ready for love because of an ache that was still fresh and not very old. She was a very strong willed, independent, beautiful women who could handle her own. But when Charlie had to walk away from her engagement because of betrayal she was finding a hard time to move forward.
Knox gets hurt in the line of duty and Charlie happens to be his volunteer when he gets released from the hospital to go home. These two are so much alike and butt heads like crazy but the chemistry is there and they are both too stubborn to admit to themselves or to one another how they feel. I loved being able to ride along their roller coaster ride to see Knox’s walls break down and Charlie giving in and taking a chance.
To make a good book you have to make your readers fall in love with not just the main characters but everyone else in the book as well! Tessa already had us rooting for Lexi and Jace from book 1. Wade Charlie’s dad, was great you couldn’t help but swoon over the single dad who raised an amazing daughter. Lucy, Charlie’s bestie was super sweet and fun. Kale, Knox’s friend was hilarious and you couldn’t help but laugh at the stuff he would say.
Spring can’t come soon enough because I am dying to read about Lucy and Kale. Incinerate left us hanging with a little something about Lucy and Kale that have me wanting more and finding out how things played out.
I give this book 5 stars and promise you wont regret reading this series!
Tessa Teevan had me in the first book in the series of Explosive and kept making me fall in love with all the guys with every book. I can’t get enough of them!!! In Inflame we get the story of Kale and Lucy and how their lives get turned upside down when they both were for sure they just wanted to be best friends with benefits. Yeah like that really works?!?!? I love when the author gives us both POVs and we get to read how both main characters were feeling. Tessa did a great job of interacting all of the other characters we love in this series in Kale’s story too. She even through some twist and turns in there for us that caught me off guard. But it all fit so well together and everything flowed so well. Not a boring moment in this book or this series for that matter! I love the author’s writing and she wont disappoint you when you pick up one of her books! Can’t wait for the next book! I give this book 5 stars
Every time I get a new Explosive series book I cuddle up on my couch and dive right in! These boys are beyond swoon worthy and they all melt my heart. You hear about single mommas all of the time. But what is hotter than a single daddy doing it all!?! Kalli knew he was off limits but what is life without breaking the rules some times. The energy between Kalli and Xavier was there and I swear I felt it through my kindle!!! Loved reading about their journey to get married with no strings. All for the kid!!! I give this book 5 stars
Ava is a fire cracker!!! Smartest kid I know! lol This story made me feel like I was sitting on the couch and someone was really telling me how they fell in love and everything that happened in between. We know all of the characters as adults but to be able to see them all as kids & teenagers were awesome! It made me fall in love with the Explosive series even more! The ending was my favorite. And I am hoping it means another series is coming!! I give this book 4.5 stars
Tessa is a twenty-something book junkie who’s obsessed with sports and cycling. She’s been married to her own book boyfriend for nearly ten years whose traits often show up in her books. 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. She loves my sports almost as much as she loves her books. Her other obsessions include red wine, hot men, country music, and all things Grace Potter.
