Bennett had the world in the palm of his hands when he was sixteen, then he allowed his dick to do the thinking for him.
That one night changed him forever, giving him a child that would forever alter his life, and an ex that was a crazy nut case on the best of days.
With the help of his parents, he went into the Navy, becoming the SEAL he always wanted to be. However, with that came a price, a price he wasn’t willing to pay anymore once his little girl started to realize why he wasn’t there. So he came home and joined the local SWAT team, starting his life anew, just his daughter and him.
Then he meets the cute little physician’s assistant that looks down upon him like one would an annoying fly, and he finally realizes just what he’s been missing. Something that takes his mind off of the challenge of everyday life. Someone that dares him to be a better father and cop.
And Lennox is one hell of a motivator.
Their relationship starts off rocky as the two of them circle each other like opponents ready to do combat rather than two civil adults. Every day brings a new battle for the two of them to overcome, and before they realize it, they’ll be fighting for each other instead of against each other.
Because there’s one woman who doesn’t want either one of them to be happy…especially not together.

“Bennett?” Lennox asked softly into the dark.
I turned my head until I was facing her.
My beard tickled her mouth and chin as we came face to face, mouth to mouth.
“Yeah, Nox?” I whispered tiredly.
“I fucking love you,” she whispered fiercely.
I blinked, all tiredness leaving my pores as I said, “What?”
“You heard me, you big bastard. You made me fucking love you,” she spat.
She sounded so irritated by the fact that I had no other recourse but to laugh.
“You don’t have to sound so outraged by it,” I laughed.
She made a sound in the back of her throat, then threw herself at me.
I landed on my back, and laughed, pulling her until she was straddling my body.
Her sweet ass was pressed against my hips, and my cock, which was more than a little out of control, was pillowed in between the cheeks.
She leaned down, pressing her mouth against mine.
“If you break me, I’ll never let you forget it,” she whispered.
Suddenly serious, I moved my hands up her arms, past her neck, and up to her head.
Cupping it with both hands, I did a half curl until I was mouth to mouth with her once again.
“I’ll never let anything hurt you. I can’t see the future. I can’t tell you how tomorrow will look for us. All I can tell you is that I’ll never treat you with anything but respect. I’ll never let you down, and I’ll never be unfaithful. If we are happy, then I’ll be here. But if it does go bad, which I don’t see happening, then I’ll leave you with a piece of me. You’ll forever have me. My support. My caring. And I want the same promise from you. Because Reagan loves you already. She asks about you every day. And I want her to know you without you holding back. You’re mine, and I’m yours until we both decide differently. I’ll never leave you without talking it out with you first. We’ll both have to be on the same page. But honey,” I said, a promise in my voice. “I don’t see this going bad, because I fucking love you, too.”
I felt a tear meet my lips right before I smashed my mouth against hers.
Her lips tasted of salty tears, but I didn’t care.
Neither did she.
Another huge round of applause to the generosity of this particular author and the Enticing Journey Promotions team for allowing me access to this ARC.
I have been waiting for Bennett's story ever since his character was introduced. The relationship between he and his sister Payton and the rest of his family was so engaging and hilarious I couldn't wait to get more. For those that are familiar with the series (note: I do suggest you read at least his sister's story or you'll be pretty lost) Bennett is a single father and a member of the SWAT team. We all know that Bennett's baby mama Corinne is coo coo for cocoa puffs and has a history of drug abuse and is a liar from way back. She makes a repeat performance in this book, but times TEN.
Lennox is absolutely perfect for Bennett. From the first glance you get of her character I knew she was going to be perfect. She didn't seem to fall for Bennett's crap and if we're being honest she didn't really like him. Cue: the ketchup covered fry scene at the diner. :)
On a sidenote: we do get to delve a bit more into the Michael character. We know that he is Bi-polar, is a trained doctor, and is in love with Nico's sister. Man, I love when LLV drops morsels on future character's lives.
This book is no different in that it keeps with LVV's tried and true recipe of hot guys, sexy tattoos, adorable kids, sassy women and steamy love scenes. Every time I read a Lani Lynn Vale book, I literally sigh in every chapter. The men and the women of Kilgore are amaze balls and I want them all to be my best friends.
Lani Lynn Vale doesn't disappoint with the 'meat and potatoes' of this book either. Besides Bennett having to deal with his crazy baby mama Lennox also has to do deal with a stalker. This stalker has been following her since college and after starting a relationship with Bennett they're back again. One thing about this author is that she is NOT predictable. There are moments when I'm reading where I think to myself I already know how this is going to progress, but a page or two later I'm in awe. She throws you a curve ball and you're back to being on the edge of your seat. I LOVE THAT!
Kick ass action.
Kick ass tension.
Kick ass characters.
Kick ass love scenes.
They all equal a kick ass book!
