Lexi could feel Caleb’s breath on her lips, and his bunched muscles under her palm were hot and hard. She stared at his mouth. He stared at hers. And she decided that if he wasn’t going to look at her breasts, looking at her mouth like he was starving and she was a grilled BLT—his favorite food in the world—was just fine with her.
Being compared, even in her own head, to a grilled BLT might not seem sexy, but in her mind, it so was. Caleb devoured those sandwiches. He’d do almost anything for one. He made sexy moaning sounds when he first tasted them. And he’d proclaimed that hers were the best he’d ever tasted. Yeah, put that way, along with the schnapps still coating her brain, it was strangely sexy.
She watched his pupils dilate and his jaw clench.
Her hand went to the front of his shirt and she bunched it in her fists, watching his eyes. He didn’t try to stop her. Then she tugged, urging him forward.
And he came, the hand next to her hip pressing into the mattress as she tipped her head to one side. Their lips touched. Softly. Briefly. But she felt it all the way to her bones. Heat, want, relief. She suddenly had to have more. She made a little almost-a-sob sound and licked her tongue along his lower lip.
Her name was more of a groan than a word. It was the sexiest thing she’d ever heard.
Then the next groan became the sexiest thing she’d ever heard. It was a combination of hunger and resignation, and she felt like he’d just set her nerve endings on fire.
Suddenly, Caleb’s hand came up to cup the back of her head, his fingers diving into her hair. And he took over.
His mouth opened over hers and his tongue stroked deep and hot. Every glide of his tongue felt as though he was running a finger over her clit. Some were firmer, some softer, some longer, some shorter, and her need ratcheted up with each one.
She ran her hands over his chest to his shoulders and up the sides of his neck, loving the hard muscles and the heat under her palms. Then she slid her hands down his sides to the bottom of his shirt. She slipped her hands underneath, moaning as she met hot, bare skin. He sucked in a quick breath and she smiled against his lips, loving having an effect on him.
And suddenly she was on her back and Caleb was moving over her. Her hands slid to his back, the muscles there bunching as he braced himself above her, still kissing her like it was his job. Instinctively, she slid her legs apart and he settled between them. The comforter was between them, but she felt him hard and hot and deliciously heavy against her. The feel of his cock pressed against her made her ache. She’d done that to him. She’d made him hard.

Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance
These books are automatic buys for me, and as soon as they arrive on my kindle, I can't help but devour them. I had already started another book when this one arrived, and even though I told myself I would wait, I started it that night. I couldn't help myself, and once I start, I can't stop. Barely long enough to work, even.
Caleb is the hot older firefighter who is taking care of his niece, and Lexi is a young, single mother, who's just recently finished nursing school. They both work long hours, and have been co-parenting for a while now, just without the relationship part. When Caleb discovers that Lexi needs a place to stay, he insists that she move in with him.
Despite Caleb's impression that Lexi needs looking after, that she's meek and too young and impressionable, she proves to him that she's not. She can take care of herself, whether he wants her to or not. But Caleb has some trust and control issues, and Lexi and him have to come to an agreement on a few things.
While this is definitely a steamy romance, it's also very much a family, and parent, story, as most of this series is. Caleb's niece has some health issues that he discovers in this book, and he has a hard time dealing with that. Lexi's son is rather easy, but he's still young and has tantrums sometimes. Both kids get quite a lot of attention, as we watch how each parent handles situations and teaches them things. It's really heartwarming, most of the time, too.
Now, the romance. Caleb and Lexi have been attracted to each other for a while now. Caleb has always held back, ignoring any possibility of a relationship, whereas Lexi just plain doesn't think he's interested at this point. There are some mixed messages at first, but finally, Caleb decides to let go of his restrictions on it.
Which goes into my favorite part of the book. Lexi is sexually submissive, and Caleb mistakes this for meekness at first. The way that Lexi acknowledges this to herself, how she knows she has somewhat odd fantasies and has to consider how important they are to her, when she doesn't think Caleb will be able to handle it, is so great. And then the way that Lexi tells Caleb these things, and how they have real discussions about this aspect of their relationship, is so well done. I was surprised by this part of the story, and I really appreciate how it's all talked about and handled. And then, when things get started, it is super hot. Nicholas doesn't seem to think this is her steamiest story, (which means I must need to read more of her older stories,) but it definitely was to me. It might be the light D/s elements, but I've also thought that her more recent stories have gotten steamier than her previous ones. I'm definitely happy about it, though.
This might be one of my favorites so far, but even saying that is hard, because I've loved so many of her books. I'm excited to read the next one, (as the hint we got in this book was very promising,) and I'm already super excited for her next series. I really want Owen's story, honestly; but I do love all of the guys, and want to meet their women. Though, I do think I'll miss the parent element of this series.
TL;DR: I loved it. It was hot and intense but also super sweet, especially with the kids. Would highly recommend if you enjoy contemporary romance.
