BROTHER-IN-LAW BABY ALEXIS WINTER
Look, this isn’t my dream life.
I never planned on being a single mom begging to live with my brother-in-law.
And it’s no secret he didn’t want this arrangement either.
Fresh off a broken engagement, he isn’t exactly welcoming us with open arms.
But I can’t help noticing the way his eyes linger on my lips,
heavy with lust and a look that says, ‘I’m about to devour you.’
And don’t even get me started on how amazing he is with my son.
I can’t say I’ve been very innocent in this either,
With rock hard abs and arms the size of pythons,
It’s hard not to imagine ripping his tight t-shirt off his tattooed body.
And acting out every dirty scene I’ve ever read in a romance novel.
I just have to keep my focus so I can get my life back on track,
Before my son isn’t the only one falling in love with Mr. Moody and Brooding.
You’d be hard-pressed to find a woman who wouldn’t pay top dollar for a drug like him.
And I have it here.
So how do I tell him the reason I ran away is because he’s about to be a daddy?

Never expecting to be accepted. To her, it is a pipe dream. She is accepted, but, so much in the hole, she knows it is never happening for her. Kalum and Jaxson go to Maverick, who to say, is less than enthusiastic, would be an understatement, about their idea of helping her.
You see he has more than enough room at his home, but the home itself is a sore spot. Bitter, you might say. But once the guys tell her to go in for the hard sell taking Grant she does. That and chocolate chip cookies. She catches him totally off guard. She found both his week spots a little boy who likes trucks as much as he does, which melts her heart, and he loves her cookies.
