About My Kinda Mess:All her life, Lexi Summer has dreamed of one thing: to become a mother. As the youngest of six, she’s accustomed to the chaos and camaraderie that comes with a big family, which is why she has been anxious to get a jump on this next phase in her life. She thought she had it all: the perfect house, husband, and future. Until one secret rips it all apart.
Nothing in Linkin Stone’s life has been easy. Raised by a single mom, working two jobs, and helping with his much younger twin brothers which keep him on his toes, and working two jobs. He busts his butt to right the wrong of someone from his past and keep the ones he loves safe. He doesn’t need anyone or anything. But that all changes the moment he meets his sexy, feisty neighbor, Lexi.
When fates collide, two people on separate paths suddenly find themselves traveling the same road. Could an easy friendship turn into something more? Or in the end, will their decision kinda create one big mess?

First FIVE STAR read of 2018!!!
Lacey Black is a NEW TO ME Author and I must admit before I even finished this book I added the other books in the series to my TBR shelf.
Fantastic characters that had me laughing out loud so much I was getting looks from the people around me. Seriously Lexi's grandparents are the best and once I told my DH a bit about the book he pointed out to me that her grandparents are a LOT like an aunt and uncle of mine and that only made me laugh harder because it is so true.
When Lexi and Linkin met they didn't hit it off, I wouldn't say this is an enemy to lovers story because they weren't that bad they just rubbed each other the wrong way is all. But that started to change when Lexi moved into her sister Abby's apartment which is right across the hall from Linkin. There was a slow simmer that turned into a raging boil of attraction. I really enjoyed both characters and while they each had some issues going on in their lives they did what needed to be done in order to get the issue behind them.
Lexi's ass of an ex-husband (or soon to be ex-husband) was really pathetic the guy totally screwed up and was dumb enough to think Lexi wouldn't find out. But you know what they say about things happening for a reason, well their separation happened because Linkin is the better man for her.
I am really looking forward to going back and reading the three books that came prior to this one and I look forward to the others that haven't gotten their HEAs yet. I highly recommend this book if you are looking for your next book boyfriend because Linkin is definitely book boyfriend material!!!

Exclusive Excerpt:“It’s time to get this thing started!” the little old woman hollers behind me, walking by and swatting me on the ass. “Oh, that’s nice,” she adds with an ornery grin and a wink.
What in the hell is going on here?
“We’re ready. Go!”
“Go?” I ask, confused, and rubbing the back of my neck with my hand.
“Strip! It’s why you’re here, right? My granddaughter, Alexis, is celebrating her divorce, and what a better way to rejoice than with a stripper! Oh, that agency was right. You are a delicious, big ol’ slab of meat. So, take it off! Take it off!” the woman chants, the girls standing off to the side giggling and chugging whatever is in their glasses (probably alcohol).
“Grandma, this is completely not necessary,” Lexi says from the chair.
“Zip it! It’s completely necessary to welcome you back into the dating world with some naked man meat. This is a cellllllllebrationnnnnnn, Alexis.”
“Stop calling me that. I’m not even divorced yet.”
“Semantics.” Walking up to her granddaughter, the old woman whispers loudly, “Hey, maybe you’ll get to sleep with the stripper. He’s super hunky with a great ass,” she adds with another wink sent my way.
“Please don’t do this,” Lexi begs from her chair.
“Too late. I’ve already paid the beefcake. Just sit there and enjoy. I know I’m ready,” Grandma says, pulling a folding chair nearby so she gets an up-close and personal view.
My heart is hammering in my chest as I take in the room. The other occupants are staring at me expectantly, while Grandma grabs her phone, presumably to take pictures or video.
Strip in a room full of woman?
Suddenly, the music changes to Warrant. “Cherry Pie” blares through the speakers, and I realize I’m at a fork in the road. I can get the hell out of this apartment, away from the crazy old woman who’s apparently into buying her grandkids strippers, and hide away from Lexi and her whacked family for the rest of my time in this building.
Or, I can stay.
A broad smile stretches across my face as I take in the anxiously nervous woman sitting before me. I wonder why she hasn’t removed her blindfold, and upon closer inspection, I realize her hands are also tied to the back of the chair.
