For Devil's Share lead singer Dash Connor, meeting, dating, and falling in love with Lexi Grant happened in an instant and getting pregnant took only 48 hours longer--which will be the only easy part of their road to marriage.
Lead singer of Devil’s Share Dash Connor has everything planned: the party, the candles, the music. He’s going to ask Lexi Grant to marry him. Not that getting hitched will make any difference in how he feels about her—head over heels just about covers it—but they have a baby on the way and that little bundle of joy is going to have his last name. But, like everything that’s happened since the first day he met Lexi, his best laid plans are about to be upended. But, it's all good - except for the trouble brewing with a bandmate.
Dash and I were walking; well I was more like waddling, down the beach in Seaside, Florida. He’d asked me out on a date. It was really sweet, and honestly we didn’t get many chances to be alone anymore. It seemed like someone new joined our family every time I turned around.
We’d gained a new kiddo, a new chick, and a new puppy this summer. Not that I was complaining. I adored Landry, Bryan, and Crash. The beach house was at max capacity though. I guess it was a good thing we were all moving back to Texas soon. I knew I’d miss the chaos that a house full of people caused once it was gone. But as today had shown, the privacy would be nice.
“Hey, babe? I thought that was where we were eating?” I pointed to the white building we’d just passed, coming to a grateful stop.
“It is.” Dash tugged on my hand to get me moving again. “But I wanted to take a little stroll on the beach first.”
I loved my boyfriend. I really did, with all my heart. But I was eight months pregnant and hungry as shit. I didn’t feel like taking a walk on the beach. I felt like having a good meal and then an even better nap. “That’s so romantic, but my back has been bothering me today and I haven’t eaten since lunch.”
“Kitten, lunch was three hours ago.”
“And?” I raised an eyebrow, daring him to say something.
He smiled and kissed my hand, “Just a little bit further, okay? There is something I want to show you.”
I let out a soft sigh and then let him drag me down the deserted beach. Everyone must’ve been tucked away in their cute little houses washing the sand off their bodies and fixing dinner. There was a slight breeze in the air making my linen pants flap around my legs, cooling me off, slightly. The sunset over the water had bathed the sky in oranges and purples. “I wish I’d brought my camera.” Dash didn’t say anything. He just kept on trekking. Maybe he’d carry me back to the restaurant. After another few minutes he stopped and turned to face me, taking both my hands in his. “Time for food?” God, I hoped he said yes.
