Sometimes the things we fight hardest against are inevitable in the end.
Hunter Stevenson wasn't interested in wasting nights with bed warmers, he had a daughter to take care of and a life to build. Leaving behind the mother of his four year old child and her incessant partying, Hunter moves closer to his family to help provide Sawyer some stability.
Tessa Daniels didn’t share the ‘typical American dream’ like most girls. A husband, 2.5 kids and a white picket fence weren’t the things she wanted for herself. She had a plan laid out, which included a career in the Navy and being surrounded by her best friends. She was perfectly content with her carefree, fun lifestyle and her casual relationships, but all of that changed when she met him.
What neither of them expected was a nosy brother and best friend with some serious matchmaking skills. The two have an instantaneous pull towards one another, they can’t fight the spark even though they both do. Until one drunken night, Tessa throws herself at Hunter, only to face an agonizing rejection. However, Hunter’s gentlemanly facade doesn’t last with the sassy sailor girl, his alpha attitude quickly emerges in the midst of their sexual tensions.
Hunter refuses to be another one of Tessa’s casual hook-ups, and won’t allow her to run away from the idea of ‘them’. No matter how many obstacles stand in their way of a happily ever after. Now he must convince Tessa that their inevitable love is worth fighting for.
Can their newfound love survive the stress of an impending deployment and Hunter's past pushing it's way back into his life?

What the fuck am I going to do without her for eight months? And Sawyer, God, Sawyer's already so attached to Tessa, how is her leaving going to affect her? This is why I haven't done relationships in so long. Everything becomes ten times more complicated when you add a child into the equation.
This girl has completely wrecked me. I'd love nothing more than to pick her up and carry her back to my house and never let her leave. Damn her career. Damn this deployment. I just want to be with her.
I already knew it, but laying here with her tonight confirms it, I can't live without Tessa Daniels.
