Overview

Expect Me by Lacey Black

Two strangers. One night that changes everything.

Travis Stevens struggles to move on and forget about the one amazing night he spent tangled up in the sheets with a beautiful woman who disappeared just before dawn. Now she's just a memory that he can't ignore. But what do you do when the woman invades your thoughts day and night?
Josselyn McCray spent one perfect night wrapped up in the strong arms of a handsome stranger before running out in the early morning light. Now she's out of money and luck and forced to make some life-altering decisions about her future. A future that is going to involve the man she hasn't been able to forget.

Brought together by one night of passion, Travis and Josselyn are now linked forever. Will Travis and Josselyn be torn apart by demanding responsibilities and the stresses of getting to know each other? Or will they overcome the odds and find their way to happily ever after?

One thing is certain: life isn't always what you expect.

*This book is intended for an audience of 18 or older due to graphic sex scenes and language.
**Can be read as a standalone but would be better enhanced by reading the previous books.

Expect Me is the 3rd book in the Rivers Edge series, focusing on another swoon-worthy Stevens brother, Travis. While he may not recognize it at first, he's struck with love at first sight with one of the waitresses at Maddox and Avery's wedding. Enter Josselyn McCray. They have an undeniable chemistry with more than just a physical pull toward each other. The consequences from their night of passion will now bond them together. They just have to figure out if their feelings are enough for a Forever. Their journey to figuring out their relationship goes from friendly to angsty to passionate, making an addicting roller coaster ride of emotional ups and downs for the reader to go thru with them. When the Rivers Edge heroes fall in love, they love their women something fierce. It just sometimes takes a come-to-Jesus moment for them to figure it out. There are several heartfelt moments in this book, not only between Josselyn and Travis, but among friends, siblings, and parents. One of my favorite moments in the book is between Travis and his father. The Rivers Edge men are not millionaires or Dominants trying to have their women submit to them. They are REAL MEN who love their women, love their family, and protect what is theirs. I can't wait to see which Stevens brother will be up next, but not before Holly's novella "Promise Me" scheduled for release in April 2015. We get a preview of chapter 1 at the end of Expect Me, and I'm already drooling for the Adam Levine inspired hero. April can't get here fast enough! While this can be read and enjoyed as a stand-alone, I highly recommend reading the entire series from the beginning to get the full picture of all the characters and their relationships with each other. The first book in the series (Trust Me) is only $0.99 on Nook and Kindle. Enjoy! -LMM

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!

Another great addition to the Rivers Edge series! I love the connection between each of the Stevens kids and their parents. This book follows Travis, the youngest boy. At Avery and Maddox's wedding, Travis finds himself hypnotized by a woman working at the wedding, Josselyn. Sparks fly. Next thing you know, they're tangled up in the sheets together. However, the next morning, Josselyn is gone. Two months later, Joss shows up with news that changes both of their lives. I laughed, I cried - a lot, and I smiled throughout the book. There were several LOL moments and plenty of awww moments, too. Loved it. Can't wait for the next book!!

5 star I was pulled right into this story. The story flowed well I read it in one sitting. The story has laughs, betrayal, pain, and heartbreak. If you have not I would recommend reading the below books first: Trust Me (Rivers Edge, #1) Fight Me (Rivers Edge, #2) This is Josselyn and Travis’s story. Travis meets Josselyn and they have one night of passion before she runs and disappears. Now she is at his door step to tell him why she left and why she is back. Can they work together to build a relationship? The more Travis works the more Josselyn feels tossed aside. When he is late or a party for them and shows a total lack of interest in the party she wonders why she is still around. When he doesn’t some home for days she leaves and goes to a friend’s house. She needs to decide if going back to Travis when he ignores and places her second is really what she wants. Can Travis get her to come back to him and love him before she truly loses her? Or will he fight to get her back with everything he has? I felt I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read. I highly recommend this book, this series and this author.

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.
