“Tell me what you need,” he whispers to me.

In that moment. I knew exactly what I needed and it’s something that only Damien could give me. I need to be owned. I need the type of sex that is all encompassing and that will totally shut down my brain due to the pleasure.

Deciding to bite my pride back, I whisper in his ear: “I have a place nearby.”

He kisses along my jaw and squeezes me tighter against him. Even though we are in a public place, and outside, I still feel so connected to him. It was like the last five years never happened. Those five years worth of heartache never took place.

“What are you saying?”

“I want to fuck.”


Hearing her say those words to me is the biggest turn on I have ever heard. I knew I wanted to sink into her hot body when I first saw her across the room but I didn’t think she would ever want to be with me like that again.

I hold her closer to me and grip the back of her thighs in my hands. I’m walking us back to my car and I hope she knows that I’m not letting her go this time. Too much time has passed and I’m not going to let it slide away again.

“Where do you live?” I ask her as I open the door to my BMW convertible. Once it’s open, I slide her into the seat and she buckles up.

“With Garrett,” she says almost as if she’s embarrassed by it.

Knowing that I live alone, I walk around to my side of the car and slip into the driver’s seat. The whole way to my house is quiet and I like it that way. I don’t want to fill the stale and quiet air with useless words that won’t help us in anyway.

By the time I pull into my Victorian styled driveway, she’s looking around at everything. Since I remember how she operates, I know that she likes to be dominated and I miss exerting my control over her. I miss feeling as if I’m the universe to this woman.

Selfishly, I know that I don’t deserve it.

“Let’s go,” I say with power and pull the keys out of the ignition. As I walk over to her side of the car, I’m trying to settle my breathing. I’m so turned on right now and I don’t know if I’m going to be able to stop myself from coming before I even slide into her.

The walk from the front door to my bedroom is uneventful and I throw her on my bed with a thud. I have her naked before she can even blink.

My hand connects over and over to the flesh of her ass.

I walk around the bed that she’s lying on and I pull hard on my dick. Her ass in the air with my hand prints highlighting her skin.

“Please, Damien. Please,” Audrey begs me and shakes her ass gently in the air for me to see the highlighted reel of her ass.

I can’t help but smile to myself as she begs me. She’s so fucking sexy when she does. It’s been five years since I have been inside her. Five years since I was able to feel her and taste her.

So I have five years worth of time to make up for and I’m going to get off while I’m doing it.

“When I say now, I want you to back your ass into my face so I can suck your clit.”

She begins shaking and I can see her arousal as it floods out of her pussy and coats her lips. My girl still loves it when I talk dirty. Damn, she’s great.

I adjust myself into position and then slap her ass for good measure. Only because her ass is gorgeous and I can. Man, I fucking love this woman.

Her juicy pussy lips were plump and swollen from the orgasm that I’m withholding from her. I’ve waited five years for her, she can wait until I allow her to come. Plus, I want her to squirt all over my dick. Audrey’s mewls and moans only spur me on to tease her even more.

“Now! Fuck my tongue!” I demand and I stick my tongue out in a spear to slip through her coated pussy lips. She tastes sweet and a little musky from me keeping her right on the level of coming.

She’s fucking my face and my dick is painfully hard as it’s pressed against the mattress. He’s begging to come out and sink into her. I know it’s been a while since she last had sex because she’s greedy as fuck right now.

“Please, Damien. Please. Oh my god. Please…” She begs and then lets out a deep bark of frustration.

“Beg me,” I demand as I bite her pussy lip. It’s as juicy as the rest of her but I love that it’s all her. “Tell me how much you missed my dick, my lovely,” I taunt her. I suck her clit into my mouth and lightly bite the bundle of nerves that has her squealing.

“Fuck!” Audrey yells and begins to shake. Her delicious ass bumps against my face and I remove my mouth from her. “No!” She screams out in protest.

I’m a man on a mission. “Beg me. Tell me how much you missed my fucking dick or I won’t let you come. Do it!” I pick up my left hand and then drop it on her ass with a whack.

“God damn, you sadistic asshole!” She yells out and then pushes her face against the pillow to muffle her scream.

A feeling of accomplishment floods over me and I smack her on the ass again. “No need to flatter me,” I retort and bite her pussy lip again. This time, I suck both lips into my mouth and suck them hard enough to have her trying to move away from me. “Damn,” I yell out as her orgasm rushed out of her and she shakes all over. Her come floods my mouth and I push my dick against the bed. “You’re going to pay for that,” I whisper to her.

Release Blitz: Max by Lynn Raye Harris

Title: Max
Series: 7 Brides for 7 Brothers #5
Author: Lynn Raye Harris
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 29, 2016


Meet the Brannigan brothers—seven sexy brothers who bring the heart and the heat! From bestselling authors Barbara Freethy, Ruth Cardello, Melody Anne, Christie Ridgway, Lynn Raye Harris, Roxanne St. Claire and JoAnn Ross comes a brand new contemporary romance family series: 7 Brides for 7 Brothers. You won't want to miss a single one!

MAX - Lynn Raye Harris

Former Navy SEAL Max Brannigan is a loner with a strong protective streak and an ocean of survivor’s guilt that drives him to take risks no sane man would take. When he gets the news his billionaire father died and left him a horse farm in Kentucky, he’s busy protecting American military contractors in a war zone. The first moment he’s able, he’ll fly back to the US and dispose of the farm. What does a man like him need horses for anyway? Of all the things his father could have left him, this certainly ranks up there as the most bizarre.

Elinor Applegate lives for her horses, but life on the farm isn’t easy. Once-thriving Applegate Farm has fallen on hard times in the past few years. Only an influx of cash from her mother’s old friend enabled Ellie to keep the family operation going. All her hopes to turn around the business and buy back the land lie on the hooves of a colt destined to greatness. She’s just got to get him there first.

But when sexy, ruthless, infuriating Max Brannigan shows up, Ellie realizes her troubles are far worse than she thought. He knows nothing about horses—and he cares less than nothing about her dreams. To Max, the horses are useless and have to go—in spite of the fact that every encounter with Ellie only makes him want to drag her into his arms and kiss the fire right out of her. But Ellie will fight hard to keep her dreams alive, even if she has to fight dirty. Max has spent most of his life protecting people from danger—but can he protect himself when Ellie launches a full-scale assault against the walls surrounding his heart?

“You don’t know a thing about me, Miss Applegate,” he said coolly. “Not a goddamn thing. And I don’t know a thing about you, but I’m not blind. You have nothing more than some fancy prancing horses here, and while I don’t know much about horses, I’m pretty sure those can’t bring in much money. Not like racehorses. I suggest you cut your losses while you can and find a smaller place where you can keep a couple of animals and continue doing whatever it is you do with them.”

“Whatever it is—” She shook her head as if to clear it. Then she stood, her entire body vibrating with anger. And, yeah, it was wrong of him, but there was something slightly exhilarating about her anger. Her eyes flashed fire and her chin quivered before she clamped down on her reaction. “You need to leave now, Mr. Brannigan. Get off my property and stay off. You can send your realtors and you can list my farm, but I’m not cooperating with any of it until I call my lawyer and find out exactly what you can and can’t do. I have a mortgage and I’m not in default—and I’m not accepting your word as the final authority just yet.”

Max towered over her as he rose from the couch. “First of all, it’s my property. Second, I’ve got some bad news for you, sweetheart,” he said, and her eyes narrowed. Whether it was the bad news or the sarcastic endearment causing it, he didn’t know. And he really didn’t care. “Or maybe it’s good news to you. I can’t sell this farm for a year from the date of my father’s death without your agreement—”

She sucked in a breath, and he knew she was surprised. But he kept going before she could respond.

“—But I also own this place. So long as I do, I’m not staying in a hotel.”

Outrage shone from her eyes. “You can’t stay here.”

He took a step toward her. She didn’t flinch or back down. He admired that about her. It fired his blood, made his heart beat faster. What was it about this woman that got beneath his skin? He didn’t know, but no way was he letting her win this round.

“Yes, I fucking can.”

Seaside Whispers: Seaside Summers #8 by Melissa Foster

Will their whispers of love be enough for one of them 
to change their life forever?

Seaside Summers #8
Melissa Foster
Releasing Nov 30th, 2016

Having a mad crush on her boss’s son, Matt Lacroux—an intriguing mix of proper gentleman and flirtatious bad boy—is probably not the smartest idea for single mother Mira Savage. Especially when the company, and her job, is already on shaky ground. But as a Princeton professor, Matt’s life is hours away from Mira’s home on Cape Cod, keeping him safely in the fantasy-only zone. And as a single mother to six-year-old Hagen, with a floundering company to save, fantasies are all she has time for.

With hopes of becoming dean off the table, and too many months of longing for a woman who lived too far away to pursue, Matt’s publishing contract couldn’t have come at a better time. He heads home to Cape Cod on a brief sabbatical, intent on starting his book, and finally getting his arms around sweet, seductive Mira.

A surprise encounter leads to white-hot passions and midnight confessions. The more time Matt and Mira spend together, the deeper their relationship grows, and the love and attention Matt showers on Hagen is more than she has ever dreamed of. But Matt’s sabbatical is only temporary, and Mira’s not saving his father’s company so she can leave it behind. Will their whispers of love be enough for one of them to change their life forever?


4.5 out of 5 stars

Matt has taken a sabbatical for three months and after that time ends he has to go back to the university he is teaching and away from Mira. Mira is working at the shop Matt's father owns and she can't just move to another city for Matt so even though they decide to have a relationship the clock is ticking against them. Things get even worse when Matt gets an offer that will make his dreams come true, but will force him and Mira to separate.

I feel like I am repeating myself when it comes to Melissa Foster's books. Maybe that is because she always manages to write a great romance story that keeps me wanting to read more, with a great set of main and secondary characters and just a tiny dose of angst. There isn't a big scene where the characters break up only to realize they made a mistake and they end up together.

When there is a kid in the picture it doesn't appear much, but in this case Hagen got to spend plenty of time with Matt and they were a great duo. The author doesn't forget that her heroine is a mother and even when Hagen is not present he is on Mira's mind (and Matt's I might say). Hagen was a lovely secondary character and he won me over. I want to see Serena get her own story and a happy ending for Matt's father.

Melissa Foster is a New York Times & USA Today bestselling and award-winning author. She writes sexy and heartwarming contemporary romance, new adult romance, and women's fiction with emotionally compelling characters that stay with you long after you turn the last page. Melissa's emotional journeys are lovingly erotic, perfect beach reads, and always family oriented.

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

JC loves two things. Art and women. Even though both he and Lib work in the world of art the focus is on JC's past conquests. It was spammed so many times that if became tiring after a point. Ok, we got it, JC had a different woman in his bed every night, you don't have to repeat it. The funny thing is that Lib mentions once that she had more lovers than she count count on her fingers, but that was forgotten and we only focused on JC.  Lib is a very interesting character and makes up for the fact that JC isn't. She is fierce and feisty. I was glad when she didn't fall for JC's advances when he first came on to her. I loved the story behind the painting and the necklace. I wish we had gotten the chance to see more of it. Lib and JC took their time getting together and when they did, Lib was dating someone else. I liked that it created some jealousy, but some of you might consider it cheating since Lib kisses JC while she is in a "relationship" with someone else. I didn't mind in this case because she didn't really want the other guy. This book wasn't the best way to end the series out the Rousseaus siblings in my opinion. I wasn't a big fan of JC, but the flashbacks and Lib kind of saved the day.

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Regnery started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract and Katy’s first novel was published in September 2013.

Twenty-five books later, Katy claims authorship of the multi-titled, New York Times and USA Today Blueberry Lane Series, which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story, and Ambler families of Philadelphia; the six-book, bestselling ~a modern fairytale~ series; and several other standalone novels and novellas.

Katy’s first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015 and won the 2015 Kindle Book Award for romance. Katy’s boxed set, The English Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, hit the USA Today bestseller list in 2015, and her Christmas story, Marrying Mr. English, appeared on the list a week later. In May 2016, Katy’s Blueberry Lane collection, The Winslow Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1-4, became a New York Times E-book bestseller.

In 2016, Katy signed a print-only agreement with Spencerhill Press. As a result, her Blueberry Lane paperback books will now be distributed to brick and mortar bookstores all over the United States.

Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.

InkExposed300 (1)


The Montgomery Ink series continues with the brother that deserves a second chance, and the woman who has always loved him.
Alex Montgomery lost his first love and then proceeded to leave himself in the bottle. Only he and his ex-wife truly know why he fell so hard and so fast down a path he never thought he’d take.

Tabby Collins is an honorary Montgomery and the organizational mastermind behind Montgomery Inc., the family’s construction company. She loves her planners, friends, and a certain dark-haired man who’s never given her a second glance. Alex is slowly re-immersing himself back into the world, but the demons he faced before aren’t out of the picture, and he’ll have to learn to rely on others to make it out whole. When Alex discovers that Tabby’s life is in danger, he not only finds a way to help her but also learns the true woman behind the soft smiles he’s always seen. Their romance won’t be an easy one, but nothing this passionate and heart-pounding ever is.

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Alex Montgomery has struggled with his addiction to alcohol, but now he is a sober man trying to get his life back and fix his relationship with his family. After all he almost ruined a wedding before he finally got help. Tabby is becoming an addiction for him and in the begging he is trying to avoid her because he doesn't realize that she is the best kind of addiction he will ever have. I was moved by Alex's speech to his family and I felt so my emotions when he told Tabby how he started drinking. If I were at his place I might have also turned to the bottle or at least become very bitter and hateful. His addiction and his life after he became sober were handled in a way that showed (in some ways) how the life of a former addict is. At least Alex had a loving family to support him. Alex sees himself as the bad guy, but I don't think that's the case and Tabby is at his side helping him realize that. What I loved the most about Tabby's character is her organisation skills. She likes to label everything and I could relate to that. I liked her brothers and I think the author might plan a new series about them. What I didn't like in this book was the Jillian-Storm- Everly thing. You see the next book is Everly and Storm's sotry, but Storm has a friends with benefits thing with Jillian in this book and I liked her, but disliked the whole thing. I didn't really need to see them going to Everly's place after they had spend a night together. This is so not my thing and it tainted the whole experience.

Review: Mischief and the Masters (Masters of the Shadowlands, #12) by Cherise Sinclair

Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars
Publication date: November 15th, 2016


She wants a short, sweet Master. One Master.

The two devastatingly dominant Drago cousins have other ideas.

Her life destroyed by a stalker, Uzuri Cheval starts anew in Tampa and joins the exclusive Shadowlands club. Unconvinced of her claims that she can overcome her fear of big men without help, Master Z gives her a time limit. And she is improving--until she hears the stalker is out of prison. Now her time limit is up, and the Masters will intervene, which is okay--as long as whoever helps her is short. Okay, sweet and gentle would be good, too.

But two Doms? Dangerously experienced and dauntingly powerful cousins? No way.

Having volunteered in every hellhole in the world, Dr. Alastair Drago is ready to settle down. Detective Max Drago has joined him and, once again, the cousins share everything. A house, lives, problems…and whatever submissive catches their interest. One mischievous submissive has definitely caught Alastair’s. However, having been burned by a woman, Max remains detached…until little mischief’s troubles turn deadly.


12 books into the series and things have yet to get boring. I love Cherise Sinclair's writing and the world she had created. There was one thing that bothered me though. I wasn't the author's fault, but my own silliness. Every time master Raoul or Kim were mentioned, I kept expecting to find out more about how they were doing. I was hoping for something, but they appeared very briefly and I didn't have the time to enjoy seeing them again. They are my favorite couple and I wish the author would write one novella about them (mostly) and maybe Kari and Dan. At least Master Z and Jessica appear frequently. I swear than man is the master of the universe. He always manages to get himself involved in someone's life in order to help them find love or whatever they need. He could own a very successful matchmaking business if he didn't already have a great job.

The title is the perfect fit for the characters and the story. Uzuri is the prankster of the club so mischief is a good nickname for her. She is running away from her past and she has found a home at Shadowlands even if she doesn't know it. She thinks she wants a short, sweet and not overly pushy man, but fate has other plans for her. For one the sweet one man is actually two taller and with more muscle than her cousins who like to share a woman. One of them was to find a permanent woman while the other not so much.

I wasn't able to get inside Uzuri's mind at all. When she had a very important project to work on and needed her friends help she didn't ask for it and instead tried to do it all on her own. The scene where some people from the Shadowlands go to her workplace to help she was my favorite thing from the whole book. It was very touching.

I wish I was able to say that I loved the book, but I can't. I couldn't connect with the heroine and at a point I stopped trying to understand her. The heroes were good and they had the strength the triad needed. I still enjoyed the book and I would recommend it, but it's not one of Cherise Sinclair's best works. The Holt's story is probably going to be next and I will keep an eye for it. I was sad about what happened to him and I want him to find a lady worthy of him.

Review:Beauty and the Billionaire: The Wedding (Billionaire Boys Club #6.5) by Jessica Clare

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
Publication date: November 15th, 2016


In this all-new novella in the New York Times bestselling series, Hunter and Gretchen are finally tying the knot—but their wedding may not be the easy fairy tale they’ve dreamed of...

Someone's out to ruin Gretchen's happy-ever-after on the eve before the big day. Can she trust Hunter, the man she's given her heart to? And can she rely on her sister Daphne (the least reliable person of all!) to help her salvage things? Or is this marriage going to go down in flames before Gretchen and Hunter ever get to the altar?

Includes a sneak peek of Dirty Money, first in Clare’s brand new Roughneck Billionaires series.


When I began reading the book I was just expecting to read the story of Hunter and Gretchen's wedding. But a surprising point of view popped up. Remember Daphne? Gretchen and Audrey's sister, who only caused trouble and heartache? Well, she appears in this story a lot and even finds her own happy ending. Isn't that great? Some readers wanted her story and now they get the chance to read it. She is a brand new person, or maybe I should say, the person she was because the fame and the drugs came into her life. In a short book the author managed to fit in two stories without neglecting one in favor of the other. Besides watching Daphne fall in love, trying to stay sober by not giving in to temptation and repairing her relationship with her sisters, we see the preparations for the wedding, Gretchen's struggle and Hunter's love.

I loved that Gretchen was so sure that Hunter wouldn't cheat on her. I have seen other heroines thinking the worse for their guy, but Gretchen was so sure about him. I don't see that often in the novella's that follow a full length book. Some events that happened early in the book might have pointed towards that, but she rejected the idea of Hunter cheating on her. We get to know what Hunter is planning to do for her and that made me enjoy the book even more. He loves her so much and he would do everything for her (like the other guys in the series of course). I don't think I had a favorite couple in the series before this book, but now I do. Hunter and Gretchen have become my favorite.

I hope to see more novella's in the series about the other couples. This one was bound to happen before the Billionaires and Bridesmaids series is pretty much based on this wedding. It would be a shame if the readers didn't get a chance to see it happening. I was very satisfied with the story and I would gladly read it again. This book has also gained a spot in my list with the books that are nominated for my top 10 reads for 2016.

Spotlight: Cowboy Rising (Cowboy Cocktail #5) by Mia Hopkins

Feisty reporter vs. gruff cowboy—buckle up for a hard ride…

Come back to the rodeo with Mia Hopkins and the newest release in the Cowboy Cocktail series, COWBOY RISING!

Journalist Georgia Meyers is writing an article about MacKinnon Ranch in a last-ditch effort to save her job at a failing newspaper. At first, the hot-as-hell rancher wants nothing to do with her. But butting heads leads to knocking boots, and soon she’s getting the real story—in bed and off the record.

Cattleman’s son and petroleum engineer Daniel MacKinnon turned down a lucrative oil career to take over the family farm. Frustrated about giving up his dreams and worried about money, Daniel buries himself in ranch work—that is, until gorgeous Georgia shows up and rocks him to the core. A blazing one-night stand leads to something deeper. Despite their feelings for each other, he’s tied to the land and she’s a rolling stone. When the time comes to part ways, will the lovers choose duty over desire? Or will they face their fears and rise to the challenge of love?

Warning: Get ready for sassy banter, sizzling sex, orgasms galore, and a nerdy dirty-talkin’ cowboy who can go all night long.

His cheeks red from working outside, the new brother removed his gloves and tucked them under his arm. He took off his hat and shook her hand. His rough fingers were warm.

Daniel MacKinnon.” He didn’t smile.

Georgia couldn’t explain it. With a heavy jaw and dirty blond hair styled high and tight, he was as clean cut as a cadet—she usually preferred tattooed, bearded types. He looked to be in his mid-twenties—she usually liked seasoned men who were older than her, not younger. But this guy’s hotness seared her eyeballs, nailing her feet where she stood.

Georgia Meyers, L.A. Chronicle,” she said automatically, all other words escaping her. She was too old, too experienced, and far too smart to react this way—and yet, here she was. Staring slack-jawed at a pretty-faced cowboy like some blue-stockinged virgin at a rodeo dance.

 “I know you’re here to see my father,” he said, the low rumble in his voice stroking a sweet spot inside her chest, “but he isn’t available today. You need to reschedule, Miss Meyers.”

His bright green eyes were so distracting, she almost didn’t register his words. “Reschedule?”

Yeah. You need to come back. Do the interview another day.”

What?” Snap out of it, Gigi. The story. She yanked her professional persona back in place. “Mr. MacKinnon, I’ve just driven an hour and a half from Fresno to be here. Two days ago, your father said he’d give me a tour of the ranch and walk me through the organic certification process. Isn’t there anyone else I can talk to?”

Daniel’s stoic expression was both infuriating and unspeakably hot. “No.”

Hot or not, who does this guy think he is? She stood up straight. “Okay, let me lay it all out for you. If there’s no one here who will speak with me today, just to make sure my time isn’t wasted, I’ll be more than happy to find another rancher. There are plenty of spreads in your neck of the woods, aren’t there? I’m sure my readers wouldn’t mind learning about conventional ranching operations. Maybe someone at the Hughes Ranch will make time for me. What do you think?”

He narrowed his eyes at her and took a deep but silent breath. His broad chest rose and fell as he looked her over. At last he said, “Can you ride?”

A little.” Which was completely true, depending on one’s definition of “a little.”

Fresh impatience lit up Daniel MacKinnon’s eyes. “All right. Let’s go.”

Small-town life is nothing but a waiting room for eighteen-year-old honor student Corazón Gomez. Work and school leave little time for love, but with a full-ride Ivy League scholarship and a one-way ticket out of the boondocks, who needs it?

The answer appears on Valentine’s Day when her old cowboy crush ambles into the ice cream parlor where she works, inviting her to go on a late-night ride in his truck. For the first time she wavers between staying on the straight and narrow, and going off-road with the handsome heartbreaker.

After four years working on ranches all over the country, Caleb MacKinnon is back on the family farm helping out his mom and brothers while his father fights cancer. The one bright spot: smart, funny, and wickedly sexy Cora.

From the start, they both know this blazing-hot love affair can’t last. But when autumn comes and Cora has to leave for the East Coast, Caleb must find a solution to keep himself—and his heart—from falling apart.

Ball-busting business woman meets no-holds-barred cowboy. He’s gonna need a longer rope…
Marketing hotshot Monica Kaur has put her big-city life on hold to help bail out her brother’s failing business. Now she’s got three months to plan and promote a rodeo, the first her tiny hometown has ever seen.

To ensure the rodeo’s success, Monica enlists a local hero, a rancher’s son who’s made a name for himself on the bull-riding circuit. Problem? She can’t stop daydreaming about the cocky bastard—and all the things she longs to do to him out behind the chutes.

Professional bullfighter Dean MacKinnon is home helping his family while his father fights cancer. Haunted by bad memories, jaded by love, Dean finds escape in a no-strings-attached go-round with brainy, sexy Monica, whose close-knit Sikh-American family would sooner run him out of town than see her with a notorious rodeo Romeo.

In private, Monica and Dean play as hard as they work. But as the rodeo draws near, that clean break they promised each other is getting more and more hung up in the rigging.

To put his family’s cattle ranch back in the black, Clark MacKinnon has his sights set on big contracts—gourmet chefs and restaurateurs. If that means long hours traveling from farmer’s market to farmer’s market, Clark doesn’t mind. Particularly since his new assistant is his childhood crush, all grown up and sexy as hell.

One night in bed leaves them breathless and hungry for more. But when his love-’em-and-leave-’em reputation collides with her trust issues, Clark and Melody must face the truth about what they’ve become: not friends, not lovers, but players in a game that’s impossible to win.

Tie-down roper Lucky Garcia can’t believe his good fortune. A shot at national finals and now this—his longtime crush, in his arms at last. The more time he spends with Harmony, the harder he falls for her. But financial demands and family responsibilities take him further and further away from her—as does his secret fear she hasn’t quite gotten over her dickhead ex.
