No one can ever have Keaton Meyer.
Least of all me.
The brooding construction manager is a man of myth and legend, rarely seen in the wild. Once upon a time, he was the star quarterback, the smiling homecoming king, royalty in our small town. Until tragedy struck. And then he disappeared completely.
Now he’s resurfaced, and I can’t keep my eyes off him.
He’s an island surrounded by lava, bound by a desert and guarded by dragons. I don’t stand a sunshine’s chance in a hail storm.
Our siblings disagree and are out to prove it, nudging us into each other in the hopes we’ll fall. But with our town in tumult and the two of us firmly in the middle, nothing between us is easy. And when he’s faced with an impossible decision, I learn the truth of what I already knew.
No one can have Keaton Meyer.
And I have the broken heart to prove it.
The world gave me everything.

Bowen Michaels was guarded and broody, but I saw through his well-formed armor. Much like me, he was broken and lost, but together we found our way through the darkness.
For a brief moment, wrapped in his arms, it felt like maybe he was right about fate and we’d been destined to find each other all along.
But when buried secrets of the past erupt, igniting us both, it was hard to believe we’d been fated for anything other than failure.
The world gave me everything.
And then it took it all away.

But I know the innocent, lost girl is an act. Underneath it’s just another part of her show.
They all are eating from the palm of her hand, puppets on her string.
But not me.
I see her for what she truly is, I always have.
A fake. A manipulator. A liar.
I won’t let her ruin all we have worked for. I refuse to let her derail our plan of vengeance.
I’ve played your game once before, Sage, now it’s time to play mine.
And you’re not making it out without getting burned.
A College Romance...
For years, I’ve dreamt of what college life could bring and while some things changed, there was always one constant.
It didn’t matter how wild I allowed my imagination to run, it always led me to the same place in the end.

My future was clear, and he was it.
Until suddenly ... he wasn’t.

No way up.

That’s exactly what I’m afraid of.
To whom it may concern,
I can't be sure what you're into, that being said, if you like sexy and sweet romance with a whole lot of quirk, keep reading...

I don't want to ruin it, but I can definitely say, when an introverted as hell narrator finally meets his favorite author and crush, all of his usual protocols go up in flames.
Set in the For Him World, this standalone is the perfect introduction or addition to this steamy MM collection.
I am a liar, a deceiver, a devil in the dark.
I will hunt you, steal your secrets, and use them against you.
You will never see me coming.
Then I met my match.

But, she made one mistake...she stepped back into my world, trying to run from her past.
She's mine, and she will soon learn there is no escape when fate says she belongs to me.

But what I don’t count on is being grouped together with three men who might hinder my real purpose.
The tatted, reckless “black sheep” would rather ruin me than build me up.
The royal bad boy’s stalker-like obsession knows no bounds.
Then there’s my gorgeous Economics professor who’s perfect on the outside but rotten in the middle.
Who would’ve thought the biggest test of all was going to be staying away from them?
I can’t trust them with my secret though. They’re part of the same social elite that I despise. They’re tethered to the organization I plan to destroy.
However, my body and my brain aren’t always on the same page.
If they strip me down to uncover my truths, I’ll be the next tragic headline.
No one crosses the Knights and lives.

When his time in London is over, we will be, too.

Tyler Bennett and I hate each other.
The annoying jerk my parents forced me to play with as a kid grew up to be a sexy, grumpy baker who still can’t stand me. Sure, maybe I enjoy our bitter banter, his cocky smirk, his chocolate chip cookies. But there’s a reason I can’t play nice.
You’re wondering why—if I hate the guy so much—did I agree to be his fake date to his cousin’s wedding? Look. Just because I love being a pain in the man’s well-formed butt doesn’t mean I want someone else torturing him. Especially not the ex-fiancée who left him for his best friend.
One night of faking it takes an unexpected turn. Heated glances, lingering touches, that arrogant mouth against mine. One night of getting swept away in an attraction that maybe isn’t so one-sided after all.
Aside from this new, tentative friendship laced with sexual tension, something else has grown out of that night.
And Tyler and I will have to figure it all out…in about nine months.
Author’s note: Just One Favor is an enemies-to-lovers standalone romance with a hot side of longing, sexually-charged banter, a broken hotel bed, and chocolate cream pie.
