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 his life, giving him a child that would forever alter the course of 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 that 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 at 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 police officer.
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.
I loved this book! The chemistry between Bennett and Lennox is undeniable right from the start when they first meet in the ER. Granted, their first couple of run-ins with each other weren't happy moments, but they were still funny nonetheless.
Lennox keeps everything close to the vest and doesn't allow people into her inner circle, but it's easy to understand why given what happened to her when she was 16, and now with her stalker. Bennett has done well for himself, he knows what is important in life and has his priorities in order. I was really impressed with the decision he made as a teenager in regards to his daughter.
Although neither Lennox nor Bennett is looking for a relationship, their whole friends with benefits deal begins to take on the look and feel of a relationship, with everything they with each other. It quickly became obvious who Lennox's stalker was, but it was never specified how Lennox's personal information was obtained. The sheer level of the stalker's insanity really became clear after the accident the stalker caused. The last couple of chapters was intense, and even though it was rough going for a while, Lennox was still able to maintain her sense of humor. The epilogue was a good wrap up, but after we got a bit more information about Michael in this book, I cannot wait to read his book!

“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.
