Ignite, #1
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?
Incinerate, #2
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?
Inflame, #3
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?
Intoxicate, #4
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?
Fusion, #5
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?

This story caused many tears to fall -- both happy and sad -- and gave me a sense of what real love could be like. I loved Jace from the very beginning and though I liked Lexi, I found myself wanting more from her...BUT when she finally gave more, she did it in a BIG way:

“I’d rather give my whole self to you for as long as I can. I’d say you’re worth the risk, but I don’t see it as risky. It's living, it’s loving, and I’m going to do both, because, Jace McAllister, i love you.”

Charlie and Knox’s story knocked me off my seat. It started out crazy - she saw him in a bar and actually wanted more from him just based on his looks, but when he turned her down, she thought he was just an @$$. The next day she turns up as his volunteer thru a veterans program to help take care of him and his injuries he sustained in a bomb blast while overseas. This interaction is top-notch!

There are several samples of the simple humor found mixed with their story. This is just one of my favorite quotes from the book comes when she has to help him get in the shower and she’s making her way out of the bathroom because:

...if I see any more of his naked skin, ,I’m going to go all Katniss on him and start screaming “I volunteer!” when he decides he needs his back washed.

Or her comparison of him with fictional characters:

If Knox was a Disney character, he’d definitely be Flynn Ryder because he definitely has the smolder down.

It isn’t all hearts and flowers and it isn’t easy, but they way it all plays out made me thankful for their story and that Ms Teevan shared it with us.

5 out of 5 stars!!!!!!!!!!
I love this series….like love everything about it and it’s even better having started at the end and worked my way back to the first book and now reading them in order. Ms Teevan just makes my heart all aflutter with happiness and dread and joy and sorrow and does it so smoothly that I can’t help but keep reading and loving her characters.

The story starts with Kale & Lucy knowing that she’s pregnant,but Lucy deciding she needs time to adapt and then the story goes to the beginning of their relationship - which was strictly (supposed to be) friends with benefits.

And then when the story picks back up with the present and Kale is hiding things from Lucy it’s so heartbreaking because you come to expect the worst with secrets.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE her first encounter with his family. It was so well written that I was a smiling fool the whole time I was reading it!!! It was comical and heartwarming to see Kale, his mom and sisters inviting Lucy in and welcoming her to the family.

Kale & Lucy will always have a  soft spot in my heart. Ms Teevan has a way with words that just transports you into the story and keeps you on edge as you read thru the ups and downs of the relationship.

Having really met both Xavier and Kalli in Kale’s story, Inflame, I was eager to see where their relationship would go. However, watching them struggle through their feelings -- and blaming a lot of it on Lily -- made me crazy!

BUT when she struggled to remember her first kiss, his response was the best response from a book boyfriend I’ve read yet:
But you’re definitely going to remember mine, and when someone asks you about it, you won’t hesitate. Blush, maybe, but you’ll remember every single detail.”

I enjoyed watching the story go back from their wedding night and then learn how they came to that point. It was fun imagining them telling their friends all about their journey as they were telling each other as well. I loved when Xavier would speak Spanish to Kalli and the way they both used it to get what they wanted. But the sweetest moment in the book was on the way to the chapel and they confessed their readiness for each other. I loved that scene!!


5 out of 5 stars
I adored this story!! I loved the way it was told as a flashback. I loved the childhood best friends turned married couple aspect. I enjoyed the glimpses into other books. It was such an enjoyable read I had a very hard time putting it down!!!

Jeremy and Sierra met on the beach when they were 8 years old. This story is the retelling of their lives and how they got to the point of telling their 6 year old daughter were babies come from. I laughed, I cried and I just thoroughly enjoyed this story!! It wasn’t perfect, but it was so realistic I wanted to be Sierra and have all of Jeremy’s love for myself! Wonderful, wonderful story that I can’t wait to continue with the other books.

I read because I want to get lost in a world of love and romance. In a world where the good guys win and the love story rocks. Ms Teevan did just that with this story!!! I haven’t read anything else by her, but after this I can’t wait to go start the entire series from the beginning!!!

I’m so sad to be finished with this series and only hope that these characters will pop up in an anthology someday or that maybe they’ll get something special for a holiday. Ms Teevan does a great job of storytelling and I can’t wait to read more from her!!!
“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.” 
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.
