    OMG IT'S AMAZING...A must read

    OMG, you all need to read Expect Me by Lacey Black today. Its just so, so, so Captivating. There were moments I couldn't stop crying. Like she seriously pulled you into the story and you became the character and living the story. Josselyn - What can I say about her. At first I was just like, yeah I can't believe she is doing this. But it's true what they say, you meet your true love in the strangest ways. Travis - All men should be just like him. I didn't not expect his reaction when he found out he was going to be a dad. Most men freak. He took it as a man an accepted it. He made them his life. My favorite part which I just bawled out laughing was when the family was waiting to see Travis, Josselyn and the baby. The nurse was telling Travis and Josselyn that the family is going to start a riot soon and a few are threatening to through their badges around. And the crying. I never cried so much during a book before. I don't think Lacey could have made this story better then what it is already. By far this is my favorite. I so can not wait till her next one is released. It's going to be hard to beat this one. But knowing Lacey I am sure she can pull it off.

    Expect Me is the third book in the Rivers Edge series but can be read as a standalone. Expect Me is Travis’s book. Travis, as we know is Avery’s (Trust Me) brother. While at his sister’s wedding, Travis meets Josselyn McCray, a waitress at the wedding. While he thinks he’s being coy, everyone notices that Travis can’t keep his eyes off Josseyln, including Josseyln herself. Josseyln ends up back at Travis’s apartment for one night of unadulterated passion. She flees before the morning light. Travis is left to wonder what happened to the woman that captured his heart that night. "Time to face the man who changed my life forever..." Two months later, Josseyln shows up on his door step and drops a bomb he never saw coming. He’s going to be a daddy to an essentially complete stranger’s baby! Travis is the youngest of the four Steven’s boys. He works hard, side by side with his father at the family construction company. He is a protective older brother to little sister Avery, and the proverbial punching bag for his older brothers. He’s not the confirmed bachelor, one night stand type of guy that his brothers or friends are/used to be. Travis works hard and wants the same loving relationship his sister has. "I want to be there for you and our baby." Travis and Josselyn are, for all intents and purposes, strangers. They know each other’s bodies but that is all. Travis and Josseyln agree to avoid the undeniable attraction, and try to become friends first, for the sake of their unborn baby. Travis wants nothing more than to provide for this woman and their child and will go to the end of the world to do so. While getting to know each other, Travis is also working on physically providing a home for his growing family, this means more time apart from Josseyln. She sees this, through hormonal eyes, that Travis is regretting his choice. Can Travis prove to Josseyln that nothing matters more to him than her and their baby? Can they overcome the odds and become friends, lovers, and parents to this child? We do see past couples throughout the book as well as Travis’s all-knowing mom who’s wisdom is still flowing freely! Another steamy, small town romance from Lacey Black! I absolutely loved this book! I loved watching Joss and Travis grow together as well as individually throughout the book!! 5 stars!

    Lacey Black has struck steamy, small town romance gold with the third book in her exceptional Rivers Edge series. I am a huge fan of small town romances, and Expect Me is irresistible. Ms. Black has created a cast of characters that are all likable and relatable with plot lines that are realistic. She has mastered the art of drawing a reader into her story through her writing; it was impossible for me to not become invested in these characters and their stories. "That moment, that connection felt like something monumental and epic." Josselyn McCray and Travis Stevens met at Travis' sister's wedding where Joss was working as a waitress. The first time Travis laid eyes on her, he was immediately taken with her and was unable to take his eyes off her. Joss has noticed him, too. They had a very brief conversation, and Travis is struck by his immediate, unmistakable attraction to her. Joss feels this crazy connection, too. As he works up the courage to speak to her again, Travis has an accident. Joss takes him home, and they end up sharing a very passionate night together. Travis wakes up alone the next morning. Unable to forget Joss, he's haunted by thoughts of her for months after that night and he's unable to move on from the memory of Joss. "Time to face the man who changed my life forever..." Two months after that night, Joss has confirmed that she's pregnant. She's had a rough few months, her pregnancy hasn't been easy thus far, and she's now jobless and homeless. Joss is a good girl; she's kind, she's hardworking, but she's a bit at loose ends not knowing what it is she wants to do with her life. She has a tumultuous relationship with her overly ambitious family because she's hasn't taken the professional path they hoped she would take. Travis is 27, and he's the youngest of the four boys in the Stevens family and an older brother to sister, Avery. He works alongside his father in the family construction company. He's genuinely a good guy. He's kind, he's loyal and supportive, and he's just alpha enough to be super protective without being overpowering. He's not a man-whore like his brother Nate is and Jake was, he's a one-woman, committed relationship kind of guy. His night with Joss was not his normal behavior, and in fact, it has left him very unsettled as he has been unable to move on. So when Joss shows up on his doorstep unannounced, he is surprised and thrilled to see her. Joss explains why she's there, and while surprised at first, Travis handles the news spectacularly. He's excited that he's going to be a dad, he's happy that Joss is back in his life, and he's all in. "I want to be there for you and our baby." They have a lot to figure out, and Travis, who is afraid she'll bolt from his life again, convinces her to stay with him while they work through everything and take the time to get to know each other. They agree, though, that despite this intense attraction between them, they have to get to know each other as friends first before they can consider anything else. "Everything about you makes me want more." They spend a lot of time together and are slowly getting to know each other. Travis is with her every step of the way. He is very forthcoming, and he shares his dreams with her, taking her to see the home he is building for himself. The desire they have for each other has not lessened, their feelings for each other have deepened, and they finally cross the bridge from friends to lovers. Travis becomes obsessed with finishing the house, putting a great deal of pressure on himself to get their new home done for Joss and their baby. Unfortunately, he becomes so singularly focused on this project, that he unwittingly pushes Joss away and alienates her. Gone is her previously attentive, very much present Travis, and Joss is lonely, hurt, confused by his absence. She is convinced that he is pulling away from her, and completely heartbroken, Joss leaves him. Travis is completely shaken by what he learns about himself in the wake of Joss' departure, and he feels tremendous guilt and shame regarding the way he treated her. "You and the baby are all that matters to me." Travis gives Joss the space that she needs, but it is not easy on him. He misses her so much it hurts. He redoubles his efforts and focuses on getting the house done so that he can win back his girl. When he finally does see Joss again, it's at such an emotional, poignant time for them both. Joss loves Travis, that's never been in question, but can Travis convince Joss that he feels the same? Lacey Black has given her readers another stellar story in this series. Given that this is only her third novel, the quality of her writing is very impressive. She is an amazing storyteller, and she has a special style that completely captures the reader's attention. I've become a big fan of the talented Lacey Black, and I look forward to more from this exciting new author.
