Being a single father while in the military is hard, and no one knows that better than Xavier Cruz. When Lily’s mother walked out on him, it could have meant the end of his career; luckily, he had a loving mother who rushed to his side to help take care of his daughter while he was away. Now that she's decided to leave for the summer, he’s getting help from someone that he never imagined he'd have so close – his best friend’s little sister.
Kalli Montgomery has been secretly in love with Xavier since she was 16 years old. Now that she’s spent the entire summer with her favorite father-daughter duo, those feelings have only intensified. So naturally, when Xavier runs into some problems, Kalli offers to marry him so he won’t have to risk losing Lily. Of course, if he were to happen to fall in love with her in the process, she wouldn't be one to complain.
I absolutely loved Xavier. He was an amazing father, a caring man, and a great friend. But then again, I also had an insane desire to pick up a four-by-four and beat him over the head a few times. What can I say? I've come to the conclusion that I'll never be able to read a Tessa book without wanting to smack sense into a character at least once.
Kalli was persistent as hell. She came off extremely strong in some areas, but she at least went after what she wanted - unlike the man I wanted to beat. That being said, she was also selfless and full of heart.
For me, the real star was Xavier’s ten year old daughter. Lily was hilarious and so quick to call her Father out when he was being idiotic.Read more ›
Kallie is just what Xavier needs and he is what she has always wanted, no doubt. This story was such a beautiful journey to read about. So many self made obstacles to overcome, but so much reward to work towards. This series gets better and better and I love how each family has their own amazing side stories. I can't wait for the next one, Kaylie? Hopefully we can hear all about the destined Cruz-Montgomery baby!
Every time a new book in this series releases I get school girl giddy about them. I'm a sucker for a military man and Tessa Teevan writes the best of them. It doesn't hurt that I spent 4 years living at Fort Campbell, where the book is based. I really liked this one in particular though.
Honestly I can't say that I felt one way or another about Xavier prior to reading his story but, make no mistake, I'm a big fan now. I have to say the fact that he is such a good father to Lily and always puts her first is a huge turn-on. Throw him in a uniform and I'm a goner. He's sweet and kind, hard-working and caring on top of all that. Sawooon!!
This book was told in alternating POV's and sometimes that can be hard to pull off, but I think this was done well. Kalli's POV came off a little more playful because of her personality but I enjoyed Xavier's a little more. He's a bit more serious and brooding, but you could totally feel the love he had for both his family and friends, but especially for Kalli.
I love the way that Tessa wrote it as a re-telling of their story to their friends and family and easily transitioned into the present and future. It made the story flow really well.
This was another successful mission in the Explosive series and you shouldn't hesitate to read it ASAP.
Standalone but part of a larger series
Told from both POVs
Minor editing errors but the story is good enough you can look past it.
Holy freaking wow. This book had me hooked from the first page. I have enjoyed this entire series but this one might be my very favorite so far. Kallie is a firecracker and I found myself cracking up multiple times. Xavier is hot as hell but cautious due to his past. From the get go these two are explosive but every time they take a step forward Xavier takes 3 steps back. That is until Kallie shows him what he is missing. He has a 10 year old daughter and him trying to navigate parenthood and a relationship was definitely something that made you love him even more. Even though he wanted to be selfish he knew he had to do what was right for his daughter.
I was hooked from the first page and couldn't put this book down. I loved that you got a glimpse out of the gate of where they were and then memories took you back to how they got there. I found that type of story grabbed me faster than waiting for the build up. It helps that they were naked in bed at the start of the book too. Lol
Can't wait to read Kaylie's story which I assume is next since she is the only single one left. Since she is Kallie's twin I have very high hopes for that book too. Hopefully it comes out soon!
So, while I did like the story for the most part, I had a hard time really connecting to both of the main characters, Xavier and Kalli. Xavier was TOO indecisive for my liking - I wanted him to be a little more alpha and grow a pair! I completely understand and respect why he's been so cautious with his heart and his daughter's future - the mother of his child walks out on them when she's just a baby and he needs to be careful in order to protect the both of them from further heartache. I just felt like he was missing a little *something* extra to make me go ga-ga over him. I liked Kalli's character a little bit more because she's got qualities that usually make me instantly like a heroine - a bit of sass, good sense of humor and is confident enough in herself to voice what she wants, but I sometimes kinda felt like I missed out on growing with her throughout the story. She already had her feelings figured out and revealed to us and her intentions were clear.... so maybe it made her kinda boring because I didn't have to figure out what her deal was?? Even though this wasn't a favorite of mine in the series, you may love it!! I loved the other books and Tessa Teevan's writing so I'll definitely keep reading this series and her other work!
