Review: Expect Me (Rivers Edge #3) by Lacey Black

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.

I’m so glad that I stumbled upon Lacey Black. She has become one of my favorite authors and one of my go to authors when I’m in a reading slump. And her books always pull me out.
This book is part of the series, but can be read as a standalone but it helps to have read the precious books. Which are also really great by the way.
I just love the world and characters of Rivers Edge that Lacey Black hands created. Fun, loving .sexy and above all family. I loved the Family dynamics of the Stevens family , they are so much fun to read and to follow, and rather realistic. What I also love about these books is that the side characters are just as important as the main couple. They play and equal role in each book.
Now to our main couple for this book. We have Travis Stevens this book and his one night stand Josselyn form the end of last book at his sister’s wedding.
I really enjoyed those two …… and how they handled the pregnancy. In fact Travis after the shock of the news was great. He did everything he could to make sure she and the baby are taking care of. He actually was really happy. He worked hard to make everything perfect. He ever worked a little too hard at times. But I could understand where he was coming from a little. And I really never doubted him, his feelings toward Joss or the baby.
While I really liked and enjoyed Joss, I also thought she could have been a little more interdependent. Even pregnant and in a new town I thought she could have done a little bit more for herself and maybe even for the baby and Travis. Yes, she fit perfectly into the family and they took her in as one of their own but I thought she was just a little to depended on them and Travis at times. But overall it all fit into the story line and just fit.
Travis and Joss of course have some wicked chemistry and know how to set the sheets in fire, pregnant or not. I thought they were the perfect match for each other and balanced each other out nicely.
The ending was while predictable absolutely prefect and I really could not see a better ending to their story.
Overall, great book and I look forward to see more of the Stevens family in the next couple books.
I rate it 4 ★
