Inflame (Explosive #3) by Tessa Teevan
Easy going soldier Kale Montgomery, a self-proclaimed ladies man, has no plans of settling down, especially not with his best friend- the sexy, sassy schoolteacher Lucy Dawson. Their relationship, though unconventional, is mutually beneficial, and they wouldn't have it any other way. Friends with benefits? Casual lovers? Whatever you want to call it, they’re having fun, in and out of bed, and to them, that’s all that matters. At least that’s what they think, but how long can you spend in someone's bed before you find they're also infiltrating your heart? As their casual fling with no strings attached progresses, it's not long before they realize they're both in way over their heads. One fateful night changes their lives forever in ways they could never have imagined, giving them the push to finally admit that maybe, just maybe they want more than they’ve let on. Their mutual attraction rapidly intensifies as it shifts from burning lust to unrelenting want, need, and possibly even love. Suddenly the idea of settling down doesn't seem so bad. In fact, it sounds pretty damn perfect. Just when things seem to be falling into place, past pain and renewed insecurities rise to the surface and threaten to smother the flames of their passionate relationship, reminding them both why they’ve always kept the idea of love at arm's length. Will Kale and Lucy realize that what they've been waiting for is each other, or will the blazing whirlwind of their feelings burn out too quickly, causing it to all go up in smoke?
She looks me over, and I love the fact that she’s checking me out. I don’t know why I’m so drawn to her, but I am, and I want to get to know her better, at least where the bedroom’s concerned. Eventually, she extends her hand, and I give a firm handshake, the kind she wanted when we first met. “Please, Kale, call me Lucy.” Shaking her hand, I say it out loud. “Lucy. I like it.” “That’s fortunate since I’m stuck with it. Okay, Montgomery. As much as I love flirting with a hot ass soldier in the parking lot of an elementary school, I’ve got to get going. Maybe I’ll see you around?” She starts to walk away, but I grab her hand, reeling her back in. I’m not ready for her to go, yet I don’t want to seem like some crazy stalker guy. “Can I see you again? You know, outside of an elementary school?” I ask, my eyes bearing down into hers, begging for her to say yes. She hesitates, and I’m afraid she’s about to say no when she finally responds. “I don’t date. I’m not looking for anything serious, so if that’s what you’re looking for, I’m the wrong girl.” My cock practically sings at her words. A no strings attached relationship with a hot teacher right before I deploy? I couldn’t have asked for better luck. “I don’t do relationships, either, Lucy. I just want to get to know you and to have some fun. No feelings, no strings, no nothing,” I tell her, and watch as a look of relief washes over her. She starts digging in her purse and I watch as she scribbles something on a piece of paper before hanging it to me. “Number’s right there. Call me when you’re feeling adventurous,” she says. Before I can say anything, she spins around and swiftly walks away, leaving me to wonder just how adventurous she can be.

“When I step foot back on American soil, it’s going to be my goddamn mission to make Lucy Dawson realize that I’m the only one who should be her man”
Ok, let me start this review with a HUGE round of applause to the wonderful Tessa Teevan *clap*clap*clap*clap*clap*clap*clap*clap*. I am a massive fan of Ignite and Incinerate. Those books are right at the top of my spank bank collection....then Tessa writes the third book in the Explosive series ‘Inflame’ which brings us ...... Kale Mont.HOT.AS.HELL.gomery......... WOW.
What I love about Tessa’s writing is how she makes her female lead just as full of strength, fire and sassiness to the leading hot strong alpha male. I love her writing style and how this story has a wonderful balance of HOT scenes, raw emotion, angst and real LAUGH OUT REALLY LOUD MOMENTS that woke my children up....No Shame!! I loved the ‘friendship’ between Kale and Lucy, the way they communicated, understood and misunderstood each other and blossomed. The lust, frustration and tension can be felt so strong from this book, you are pulled into their story and root constantly for them.
Now, to the STEAMY part.......SWEET BABY JESUS...... this ticks each and every box on the HOT AS HELL LIST. You want hard and fast...you got it! You want that sweet head to toe attention....YEP! Tessa wrote it! You want that OMG OMG OMG steam.....BOOM Tessa so did that!
This book is going straight to the top of my spank bank collection and will be one I return to again and again. Tessa Teevan you ROCK!!!!
*PANTY DROPPING* ORGASMIC* ROCK MY GOD DAMN WORLD * ALL HAIL KALE* STARS

Inflame (Explosive, #3)
Ignite (Explosive #1)
Incinerate (Explosive #2)
I'm a twenty six year old book junkie who is also obsessed with sports. Bengals, Buckeyes, Reds are my teams! I work for the government during the day, hang out with Air National Guard on the weekends, and have been married to my own book boyfriend for over seven years. We currently live right outside of Dayton, OH with our two cats. If I’m not writing or looking through tons of photos of hot men, all in the name of research, then you can probably find me curled up with my Kindle, ignoring the rest of the world. I love my sports almost as much as I love my books. My other obsessions include red wine, hot men, country music, and all things Grace Potter.
