Branson Wellington? The name, my name, is usually followed by arrogant prick or self-serving bastard, and I can't say I haven't earned those titles. It's true. I'm not the good guy. I'm not the boy next door. I'm definitely not your Prince fucking Charming. Not even close.
And I never wanted to be. Until her. The day I pulled her from the wreckage was the day that my life changed.
Who would have thought that one little lie had the power to throw two lives off course?
Love has never been in the cards for me, but now that she’s here, I have no idea how I’m ever going to let her go. Even if I don’t deserve her.
Because like I said, I’m a self-serving bastard and some things never change.

As the blackness starts to fade away, I see that white light, but it doesn’t really look like that tunnel. No, it’s just a scene change, and if I could muster up enough strength, I’d groan because there are things in my life I’d rather not relive. It’s bad enough that I have the memories and have been dealing with the fallout for far too long. Reliving it all over again is more agonizing than the first time around, because now, I know the truth. I betrayed my brother in the worst possible way when he’d done nothing wrong, but by the time I found out, it was far too late.
So why am I having these flashbacks playing in slow motion? I thought when you were on death's door, your life was supposed to flash before your eyes. So why am I replaying every single mistake I've ever made as if it were the first time—in slow motion instead of quick bursts? Maybe my life did flash before my eyes and it happened so fast that I missed it. Maybe I’m dead after all and this? This is my hell.
Tessa Teevan has out done herself yet again I tell you. I love, love, love a book that can pull at my heartstrings and make me laugh all at the same time and that was what I got when I read Conflagration. When I was first introduced to Branson in Knox’s book I despised him so damn much, he seemed as though he was so selfish and all he cared about was he. Then my heart softened a bit when I read Kale’s book and what he did when Lucy went into labor, it was very selfless. Then I realize that he thought of himself as an outcast, the odd man in the bunch, until he met Arianna. She was the one he couldn’t get out of his mind until faith, if one might call it that brought them back together. What was supposed to be something that was temporary quickly developed into something that both individuals weren’t expecting? I mean come on, you can never plan who you are going to fall in love with. Arianna was trying to find herself but instead found love on the way, with a man she thought she would never see again. But of course, a great story have to have its antagonist, which comes in the form of Branson’s ex wife and Arianna’s ex-finance, I mean we have to have a little drama to quench our trust. Gosh I wanted to kick him because he made them win when he gave them the gratitude of preying on his lack of trust that he have for people. But in the end he was able to pull his head out of ass and realize what a huge mistake he made. Then let’s not forget the sex scenes, and boy they were hot, hot, hot. Tessa never disappoints. I cannot wait to find out what she has in store for Shane Wellington’s story.

Author BioI'm a twenty something 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.
