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?
Where do I even start with my review? The entire series was one addictive, fun, crazy, wild ride! I loved it from start to finish! Tessa is the master of keeping you intrigued from start to finish!
When I signed up to review not one, not two, but FIVE books, I knew it would take a truly talented author to keep me hooked and interested for the entire series, and I am pleased to say, Tessa is that author! I can’t even remember how many late nights were spent glued to my Kindle screen, wishing the cord was just a few inches longer so I could be comfortable while I read all night long. I should probably send Tessa a bill for all the coffee I had to consume to make it through the work day…
Sometimes, you are just in the mood for a good, fun loving romance. A good push and pull between the Hero and heroine. The entire series has delivered just that. I can seriously enjoy a really fun, over the top, dramatic romance; but sometimes I am in the mood to just fall in love with characters, getting lost in their stories. No eye rolling, no crazy drama. While reading this series, I kept wanting to pick my favorite couple, but I couldn’t do it! I loved them all, and they all stole my heart for different reasons.
From the first words of Ignite, I was scared to death about what I was reading! Never, not once, have I shed tears in the first chapter, but I found myself fighting against just that. As the story progressed, I was GLUED to my Kindle! My heart broke in places, but the love I felt between Lexi and Jace was enough to warm my heart. Theirs was a sweet, innocent love that grew out of a childhood love that was anything but childish. Years apart could not distinguish the flames and true love they shared.
Charlie and Knox were up next. While Jace warmed my heart with his openness, Knox was closed off and surly to the core. I was such a sucker for the surly jerk! It was fun to watch as they grew together, but the sparks and friction between the two made this book yet another all-nighter read! Charlie has a heart of gold, and her strength and determination inspired me.
And… then we have Kale and Lucy. I don’t know why people always think friends with benefits will work, because it won’t, and these two are no exception! I loved watching the back and forth between the two. Kale does a body good? I was laughing so hard at his humor! And Lucy, underneath all the hard walls she’s constructed, lies a vulnerable, loving woman. I loved watching Kale draw her out of her shell!
Perhaps my favorite couple (at least, today) is Kalli and Xavier from Intoxicate. Xavier has had to be strong for the past decade, being a single military dad. His strength and devotion to his daughter is swoonworthy! And Kalli, god, my heart hurt for her so many times! Her strength, her love for Lily and Xavier is awe-inspiring!
We got to know Jeremy and Sierra and their adorable spawn, Ava, in Ignite. But how did they begin? I loved being able to dive in to their history as Fusion delves into hilarious recount of their past!
Overall, I LOVED this series, and I am definitely going to be reading more from Tessa!
