Beckett

I’m not good with first impressions, especially if the person I’m trying to impress is a gorgeous woman who our mutual friends are sure is my “perfect woman.” So when I bungle my blind date with the curvy bombshell, I’m sure I’ve missed my one shot. When Hazel Prescott comes to me a year later, begging me to pretend to be her boyfriend for the weekend, I’m all in. Worse case scenario, maybe she’ll love me for my dog and accept that we’re a package deal.

THE PROTECTOR by Anna Hackett

 

Release Date: June 28


For a ballerina in the line of fire, the only man who can keep her safe is a scarred, battle-hardened soldier.

One minute Saskia Hawke is dancing on stage, and the next she’s been abducted by a very wealthy, very powerful man with connections. Whisked away to a country estate, she’ll do anything to escape, and prays the former soldier she can’t stop thinking about will come to rescue her.

What she doesn’t know is that her disappearance will light a protective fury inside Camden Morgan, and he’ll tear down the country to find her.

After a final mission leaves former Ghost Ops soldier Camden Morgan injured, scarred, and riddled with guilt, he comes home to San Francisco. Surrounded by his family and working at Norcross Security, he still can’t settle. He definitely knows he’s too broken to offer anything to the beautiful, raven-haired Saskia.

When she goes missing, Cam knows something is very wrong. He’s the man with the right skill set to bring her home, even as he knows he must protect her from himself and push her away.

But saving Saskia is just the beginning, as her abductor isn’t letting go of his obsession. Cam must go all in, be the protector Saskia needs, and risk his scarred heart. With the help of his brothers and Norcross Security, not to mention Saskia’s dangerous brother and his team, they’ll put everything on the line. And for Saskia, she’ll fight with everything she has to survive…and to prove to Cam that he’s capable and worthy of love.

Hard and Fast by Mari Carr

 

This billionaire playboy has finally met his match.

Hard and Fast, an all new steamy friends-to-lovers, billionaire boss romance from New York Times bestselling author Mari Carr, is out now!

Penny is tired of being seen as the gamer, the crazy cat lady, the mom-jeans-wearing, YouTube-bingeing, quirky IT girl. She’s barreling toward 29 and ready to make some changes . . . in her appearance and her nonexistent love life. But she’s smart enough to know she needs help—and who she needs it from. Her billionaire playboy boss, Gage Russo.

Bachelor Gage’s life is typically full of excitement, on the work front and in the bedroom. He’s never lacking for female company and he rarely sleeps alone. Regardless, lately, he can’t shake feeling bored. That is, until Penny challenges him to a friendly wager . . . one he promptly loses. Her prize? Lessons in seduction—from him.

Lines get blurred as Gage pushes harder . . . moves faster . . . teaching Penny things she’s only ever fantasized about. But the playboy with all the smooth moves makes one big mistake when he fails to tell his sexy student that the lessons are no longer fake, and what he wants from her is very, very real.

“Come here,” he said in that deep, sexy voice.
“What?” She was already sitting next to him, so she wasn’t entirely sure—
Gage removed all free will when he reached out, pulling her toward him until her face was only an inch away from his. Sitting this close, she could see the flecks of green in his light brown eyes. And before she could stop herself, she reached up to brush back the lock of brown hair that fell over his forehead.
He blinked a couple of times, her affectionate, familiar action obviously catching him off-guard.
“We’re going to pick up where we left off.”
“Where we left off?” she asked stupidly, his close proximity causing a complete system failure as far as her brain was concerned.
“The lessons, Penny.”
Again, he said her first name. A million people in her life had called her Penny, but when Gage said it…she melted inside.
“The kissing lesson?” she whispered.
“Among other things.”
He closed the scant distance between them, true to his word.
Penny had spent the last nine days trying to convince herself that Gage’s kiss wasn’t as amazing as she remembered.
She was right.
Because that first mind-blowing kiss paled in comparison to this one.
She loved the roughness of his beard against her face. His fingers found their way to her hair, his hands closing around two fistfuls, using it to hold her close, to tilt her head to the left so he could kiss her more deeply. She recalled his comment about men liking long hair.
When Gage released her hair, he lowered his hands to her waist and lifted, never breaking the union of their lips as he pulled her over his lap. She straddled his thighs and draped her hands around his neck.
And that was when she felt it. Evidence of Gage’s attraction.
To her!
She pressed her pussy closer, the hard ridge of his erection right there beneath his pants.
He was hard. For her!
He’d come straight to her apartment from work, so while he’d taken off his suit jacket, he was still wearing his dress shirt, though he’d loosened his tie. She toyed with the knot.
Gage broke the kiss. “Take it off.”
She looked at him.
“My tie,” he added. “Take it off.”
She slid the silk knot free, then pulled it from the collar with one long, slow glide.
“Unbutton my shirt,” he commanded.
Penny was helpless to resist that sexy tone, and she’d spent a little too much—okay, a lot too much—time imagining him shirtless.
Okay, naked.
Completely naked.
She unbuttoned his shirt, her gaze locked on the progress of her fingers. She bit her lower lip nervously, then opened the shirt completely. Gage took over, untucking the shirt and shrugging it over his broad, muscular shoulders.

Take the Lead by Jaqueline Snowe

 




Title: Take the Lead
Series: Central State #3
Author: Jaqueline Snowe
Genre: Sports Romance
Release Date: June 28, 2022


BLURB

Falling for my fake girlfriend was never part of the plan...

Daniella Laughlin might seem put together in her dance gear and captainship, but on the inside, she’s figuring out who she is without her mom’s beauty pageant influence. Constantly being critiqued and set up by her mom, she dreads going home for the holidays.

Enter her best friend’s older brother, hockey captain Gabriel Van Helsing. Dani and Gabe have been friends for two decades, and sure, she’s harbored a secret crush on him forever, but she never acted on it because his sister would’ve killed her. Gabe’s a player, on and off the ice, and the longest relationship he’s had is with his hockey stick. He offers to drive her home for Thanksgiving break and proposes the most bonkers idea—they should fake date until New Year’s to get her mom to leave her alone.

Gabe might wear the C on the ice, but he’s always been passive. Here for a good time, never rocking the boat. But after his latest hookup wouldn’t take a hint, he uses Daniella’s predicament for the perfect solution: if he was unavailable, people would leave him alone.

Things begin easily with their friendship, but with every touch and fake kiss, Daniella can’t hide her feelings anymore. And for Gabe, who sets deadlines for every fling he’s ever had, he struggles to fight for what he wants. When their timeline is up, Daniella’s insecurities clash with Gabe’s inability to commit. For two people hesitant to take a chance, they must risk their decade-long friendship for a shot at love.
