Nobody's Business By: M. J. Kane
"Trevon Campbell’s world changed the moment his ex-girlfriend announced he was a father. Determined to make up for his past mistakes, he gives Trina what she wanted before their breakup, what feels like his soul, which means forgetting the woman he had a one-night stand with, the woman who stole his heart.
Kai Malone doesn’t want to play by her family’s rules. Instead of working for the family business, she became a firefighter. Being a female of multicultural descent, working in a field dominated by men, Kai focuses on her job to ignore the infidelity of her fiancé. Tired of his deceit, she gave in to a one-night stand with a complete stranger, someone she’d never have to see again…or so she thought.
When tragedy strikes, their worlds collide, leaving them no choice but to deal with each other again. It doesn’t take long for them to realize the attraction that brought them together the first time is stronger than ever, forcing Trevon to make the biggest decision of his life."

I enjoyed the twist and turns showing the raw and imperfect emotions.... that were presented so well by in Kai and Trevon's story.
What did I like about the leads?....heroine & hero
Kai Malone: heroine...indeed a interesting person...now 35 years old...a firefighter[saves life's], confident, wonderful daughter and friend...who knew her own mind of what she wanted in her life or so she thought until she meets back up with her one night with.... Will Kai finally find the true love that she longed for?
Trevon Campbell: now 30 years old ...what a hero...has met Kai [but didn't know her name]...later finding out he has a son from a ex-girlfriend. He steps up and take on his responsibility. I loved the take charge with his son... Justin. Trevon was smart and goal oriented...a good person. Trevon cared for his family and friends and in the end he loved hard....Will Trevon finally find the true love that he wants and needs in his life?

He didn't seem to buy it, but instead of responding, he stayed quiet as if deep in thought.
Oh God, here it comes, I closed my eyes and prepped for the inevitable.
I took a deep breath and exhaled slowly. When I opened my eyes, Trevon's expression was
Will you ..."
