Felicity The day I left that small town behind, I swore I’d never be back. I was better than Lexington and its small-minded residents. No one bothered to look beyond the mask I wore to protect my heart. Then or now. Sometimes life doesn’t turn out the way we plan. Having kids was the best thing that I ever did. Returning to the one place I’m least welcome might be the most humiliating. The one thing about this town is a reputation follows you. So despite life humbling me, this town won’t forgive easily, and my past bad deeds still haunt me. Connor Running from one war to another in the military, I spent years trying to find what was meant for me, to figure out where I belonged. It wasn’t in the city where I grew up or overseas. My soul needed settling and Lexington seemed like a good place to be alone. Then I met her. She owned my attention from the moment I saw her, my heart right after. Through the grapevine, I learned Felicity had a past worth gossiping about. So do I. Maybe that’s why I’m drawn to her. I moved here for a fresh start, a second chance to live a peaceful life, but she has me reevaluating that plan. Maybe it’s not peace I need but love that I’ve been missing all along. **The Military Men of Lexington series is a series of interconnected, standalone, small town romances.** This is the final book in the MMoL trilogy, and the end of Lexington.

Heck, I think my kids would love it more. Have I? Hell no. I’ve been too busy trying to figure out how I was so stupid to give a man nine years of my life to only walk away with a suitcase of clothes and a few photos. “I would like to take you out. If I were to ask you, what would you say?” He moves a fraction of an inch, one hand resting on the counter next to me. I’m not caged and could easily move if I wanted. I don’t. “I think I would say yes.” Slowly, he smiles. His big brown eyes brighten. I notice for the first time how long his lashes are. Slowly he blinks, his gaze dropping to my lips. My breathing increases in anticipation. “Lis?” “Hmm?” “I’d like to kiss you.” “Mm-hmm.” He’s rendered me speechless already and he hasn’t even touched me. Slowly, he steps into my space, his free hand resting on my hip while he lifts the hand from the counter and cups my face. His thumb, rubbing circles on my cheekbone is rough on my soft skin, sending shivers down my spine. Time stands still as he leans down, lips gently brushing across mine. It’s barely a touch, so light I wonder if I’ve imagined it. I know I didn’t when he brushes them again, this time with purpose. His lips are soft and full. I’ve wondered how I’d feel in this moment. The first kiss after Michael. I realize quickly this isn’t only the first post-divorce kiss, this is the best first kiss of my life.
