Sidney O’Neil isn’t my type. While I spend my nights out drinking at the trendiest clubs in town, she spends hers taking care of her sick nephew. She is nothing I thought I wanted, yet she’s somehow become the one thing I need.

It’s a Cover Reveal: The Red Zone by Amie Knight

TRZ - CR banner.jpg

The Red Zone, an all-new sexy, second chance romance from Amie Knight, is coming May 30th and we have the steamy cover!

The Red Zone FOR WEB.jpg

They say the red zone is the hardest place to score.

But for me, those last twenty yards were my sweet spot.

They didn’t call me Lukas “Last Minute Lucy” Callihan for nothing.

I was at the top of my game…until life sacked me harder than any linebacker ever could.

Losing my mom was devastating and left me as the sole person responsible for my little sister.

Taking care of Ella and juggling my career was like playing the hardest game of my life.

My only saving grace was Scarlett Knox, Ella’s sexy, red-headed, no-nonsense teacher.

She loved Ella. She hated me.

She thought I sucked at this parenting thing, and she wasn’t wrong.

But whenever she was around I got the same earth-shattering, heart-stopping feeling I did when I was only twenty yards from the goal line.

She made me feel like I was back in the red zone, a place I’d never fumbled.

Until now.

Review Post: The Hardest Route by A.S. Teague

THR - BT banner.jpg

The Hardest Route, an all-new emotional and romantic standalone from A.S. Teague is available now!

the hardest route-eBook-complete.jpg

My friends used to tell me ‘What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.’ Clearly, they lied because a few months later, I found out my one-night stand was pregnant.

I couldn’t handle a baby. I was Griffin Rockwell, the best wide receiver the league had ever seen. But what choice did I have? My baby girl was coming whether I was ready for her or not.

Brooke turned out to be an amazing woman and mother. For seven years, we were the MVP’s of co-parenting—and even better friends.

That all changed when tragedy struck our makeshift family and I was faced with the terrifying possibility of losing the one woman I was quickly realizing I couldn’t live without.

I was at the height of my career and on the path to becoming the greatest of all time.

But keeping my family together, with Brooke by my side, might prove to be the hardest route of all.

*****5 Unforgettably Amazing Stars*****

The Hardest Route by A.S. Teague is one of the best books I have read this year.

If there is one thing you take away from this review, besides the fact that you NEED this book in your life, I hope it is that.

This book is amazing. And every other positive adjective under the sun. It is exceptionally written, so authentic and memorable, and completely consuming from start to finish. The Hardest Route is a book that tugged at my heart, broke it just a bit, while simultaneously putting all of the pieces of me back together again as its breathtakingly emotional story unfolded.

Between the pages of this book, I fell wholeheartedly and so deeply in love with Griff and Brooke, and I am certain a piece of me will always belong to those two.

I loved every single second and word and moment I got in this book with these characters. I started this book smiling to the point of my cheeks hurting, and I finished this book with tears in my eyes and a heart that was bursting with so much love for what I was reading. This book was just incredible. It was a book I felt every single word of. It was a book I experienced so truly and so honestly. This was a story that felt so real, and one that I felt so deeply a part of because of A.S. Teague’s magnificent writing.

I have been a fan of A.S. Teague since her debut novel released a few years ago, and with each and every one of her books I fall even more in love with her writing and storytelling ability. I have loved every single one of her books, but there is something truly special about The Hardest Route. This book was just more in a way. It was a story I felt so deeply connected to, and one that I never wanted to have end. Every time I opened this book to spend time within this world and with these characters, I got the biggest smile on my face and a true flutter in my heart. Even when what was happening was breaking my heart, along with these characters’ hearts, I loved it and felt it and just embraced it because I NEEDED this story.

I needed Griff and Brooke. I needed this world and what it brought to life. I needed the supporting characters that made this book even more incredible. I needed this addicting story. I needed it all.

I needed so much of this book, and that is just a part of what had me loving every single word of The Hardest Route.

If I were to make a list of all the things I absolutely loved about this book…that list would be endless. Like seriously. I could go on and on about what I loved about this book because there was so much amazingness within it. I won’t list everything because that would take all the words, but let me give you just a preview of what I could not get enough of in this book:

-All the feels. This book had every single feel that you could think of and every type of feel that you need. This story had feels upon feels, and I was here for it. This book made me laugh out loud, it made me cry, it struck my heart and took it capture, and it left me breathless at times. Literally. It also made me swoon and melt and just fall so hard for Brooke and Griff and everything that they were sharing. The emotional level that A.S. Teague brought to life in The Hardest Route was EXCEPTIONAL. This story threatened to shatter me at times, but it also practically consumed me with the love and friendship these characters had. Experiencing that, feeling that, and understanding the impact of all of those feels and what it all meant was spectacular.

-Sports romance. I love me a good sports romance, and this book just reminded me of that again and again. Griff is a professional football player and that added a whole new set of dynamics to what unfolded in this book. I loved getting to be there as these characters waded through those dynamics and as they tried to figure it all out. That coupled with the best group of guy friends (who all need their own story!), made for a sports romance that felt believable, that let me actually understand sports, and that swept me up into a world that I could not get enough of.

-Accidental pregnancy, with a dollop of friends to lovers romance. What starts as a one night stand soon becomes more than either Brooke or Griff were prepared for in this book, and I loved it. I LOVE me an accidental pregnancy book something fierce. I love getting to be there as characters try to figure out what in the world they’re going to do with an accidental pregnancy and getting to see how everything changes when their child comes into the world. The Hardest Route gives you all of that and more. It takes you through every step of Brooke and Griff’s journey to parenthood and what it all really means for them. You see the good, the bad, and the ugly…and everything else in between. Getting to see them as parents to their little girl was the absolute best, and I promise those two and their love for their daughter will absolutely melt your heart.

What also melted my heart in this book was the friends to lovers story it also gave me. Friends to lovers stories are my jam. There is just some so special about seeing a friendship turn into more. It’s like waiting for the biggest fireworks show of your life. You wait, you experience the buildup, you feel the literal magic in the air, and it all grows and grows and grows in anticipation….and then EVERYTHING explodes and it is magnificent and mesmerizing and beautiful. That was what this friends to lovers romance was with Brooke and Griff. It was full of build and glorious push and pull and a true friendship that will set your heart on fire. Getting to be with these two as they see what could be between them, as they fight for that more, and as they try was nothing short of everything.

-It’s all about the journey. It really is all about the journey, and there are so many journeys you get to experience in The Hardest Route. There is the journey of Brooke and Griff as they navigate parenthood and friendship and potential love. There is Griff’s journey with growing up, maturing, and figuring out what he really wanted. There is Brooke’s journey of trust and taking risks along the way. There are journeys of friendship, family, and love in this book. There are journeys that show these characters just how far they’ve come and how far they still have to go. There are journeys that test every will and ounce of fight that these characters have. There are so many intricate and beautifully crafted journeys in this book. Those journeys will own you, they will move you, and they will show you the true nature of these characters, all that they are, and all that they’re fight for, and you will love it.

You will love that and everything that this book has to offer so much.

The Hardest Route is a book that consumed me, owned me, wrecked me, and wowed me from start to finish. It is a book that took ahold of me with all that it had and that gave me everything I needed with its characters. This story is one that I know I will not soon forget, and it is one that I will treasure because that is how utterly incredible it was. The Hardest Route gave me one of the best reading experiences I have had in quite some time, and I will never forget what it was like to read this book. Even thinking back on it now as I write this review is bringing the biggest smile to my face and just making me want to go back to this book.

That is how outstanding this story is because days after finishing it, I still can’t stop thinking about it and what it gave me with its magnificent characters.

What A.S. Teague created and so thoughtfully brought to life in The Hardest Route is out of this world phenomenal. Her words gave me my new favorite story, and allowed me to fall head over heels in love with a football star, an older woman, a little girl who is sweet as can be, and the gaggle of friends that come with them. This book brought to life a story of beautiful, messy, glorious fight, a story of taking chances and risks, a story of what it truly means to give it your all for what you never even knew you needed, and a story of real, honest to goodness, friendship and love.

This is hands down one of the best books I have read this year and is my favorite of A.S. Teague’s books to date.

What can I say? I LOVED this book with everything that I have and I truly can’t recommend it enough. The Hardest Route provides one helluva reading experience that is full of glorious and dynamic feels, unforgettable characters, and a story that will own you with everything it has. I promise, if you take the chance and read this book you will not regret it. You will not regret it one little bit, and you will LOVE every single second you get with Griff and Brooke.

They’re kind of the actual best, and you’re going to fall hopelessly in love with them by the end of chapter 1.

Trust me. It’s inevitable. You will love them and their story with all that you have, and in the end you will be beyond glad you took the hardest route with them.

Excerpt:

“I like it when you call me Griffin.” His gaze settled on my mouth, and my heart sped up. I recognized that look in his eyes. It was the exact same look he’d had before he’d kissed me in Vegas. It might have been seven years ago, but when a man looks at your lips like he wants to explore every inch of them without stopping for air, you don’t forget it.

Before I had the chance to say something smart in response, he leaned in, his large frame crowding mine.

My traitorous eyelids fluttered shut. I willed them to open, but they refused to obey.

There was less than a moment’s hesitation, and then his lips were brushing mine.

If he’d had any reservations for that split second before our mouths met, they were nowhere to be found now. His hand fisted my hair, his fingertips on my scalp eliciting a moan that came from somewhere deep within me.

When his tongue licked at the seam of my lips asking for entrance, there was no question of whether I should let him in or not. They parted, and our mouths moved in rhythm with each other’s, his lips urging and persuading my own to follow suit.

And they did.

I was lost in the smell of him wrapped around me; the earthy scent that was all Griff combined with the heady feel of his hands in my hair caused every nerve ending in my body to come alive.

I moaned again as his hands traveled down my neck, his body pressing close into mine.

There were kisses, and then there was this.

This wasn’t a kiss, but a total melting of one body into another, and for a fleeting moment, I wanted to drown in the way it felt to have this man worshipping my mouth, his hands desperate to touch more of me but content to take what he could get in a hotel lounge.

Our night together in Vegas had been electric, full of lust and desire, but this was something different entirely. This was magnetic, like we were being pulled together by some unseen force that we were both powerless to stop.

And it was that realization that caused me to pull away and gasp for a breath that I didn’t really want.

What I wanted was Griff’s mouth.

His lips on mine.

On my neck.

On my breasts.

Every fucking where.

I couldn’t pull my eyes open to face the man who was supposed to be just a friend, so I gripped the edge of the bar, my chest heaving as I asked, “What was that?”

Releasing Now: The Line Below by Ali Dean

 

THE LINE BELOW by Ali Dean is live! Check out the excerpt below and don’t forget to one-click your copy!

THE LINE BELOW

New Adult Contemporary Romance

Blurb:

From #1 Amazon Sports Fiction bestseller comes a standalone new adult romance about a collegiate swimmer who falls for an Olympic track star.

Water. The place where I feel at peace.

Free from the expectations. Away from the judgement. Weightless from the obligations.

When I slip under the cool surface, I’m no longer sinking from the demands of family, school and the choices that I must make. Chase my dream of the Olympics or follow the expected career path? What will it be?

I’m not usually one to rock the boat – that’s my twin sister’s role. I find myself in uncharted territory when I meet Jett Decker on my twenty-first birthday. It’s not like me to get swept off my feet, but when I do, it creates waves with those closest to us.

Chemistry ignites, jealousy spikes and tension builds the more we’re together. Sometimes in real life the lines between what is wanted and what must be done get blurred. Not everything is crystal clear, like the line below.

Excerpt:

My hips are swaying sensually to the rhythm of the beat as Kick and Beatrice are both doing the vertical dry hump thing with different guys. I’m debating whether to wait for Julian or call it a night when I catch sight of what can only be described as an athlete’s body walking decisively in my direction. My eyes meet the chocolate brown of his as he draws closer. Even though I think he’s staring right at me, I fight the urge to look around to check if it’s me he’s coming for, or someone else.

That’s the only way to explain how this guy is walking – like he’s coming for me with a specific purpose in mind. I don’t even consider doing my usual head-duck-and-slip-away move like I normally would in this situation. But this situation isn’t normal, because by the time he reaches me, I’m barely breathing anticipating his next move.

He stops inches away, and I can’t raise my eyes to meet his. They’re stuck on his broad shoulders and muscled arms, then sliding down to his trim waist, and jeans that barely hide the firm muscles underneath. A strobe light passing by reveals caramel skin. He’s solid and strong without having that overly-muscled look. My lips curve up slightly as I wonder what he’d look like in a Speedo. I’d know if he was a swimmer though, because it’d be him I’d have been crushing on for years, not Julian Reed.

Wait. What? Whoa.

When my eyes finally meet his, there’s a smirk on his lips. I don’t even realize my body’s been moving this whole time to the beat of the music until he places his hands firmly on my hips and matches my movements. His hands feel like they’re searing my skin.

And for the first time, I totally get the urge to press my body against a complete stranger. Actually, it’s not even an urge, it’s a magnetic force because without even deciding whether it’s a good idea, I’ve moved closer until we’re chest to chest, my hips pressed up to his thighs, my arms around his neck.

I don’t do intimate like this with a guy who’s done nothing but smirk at me. But God, it feels so good. His hands slip lower, resting low enough to be inappropriate. All of this is inappropriate. I let my head drop back and close my eyes, tossing away the responsible voice in my head and letting myself just go with it. Ride this wave of… whatever the hell it is. Indulgence? Definitely. The word “free” flushes through me as my hips slide with his body, but it’s not quite that. If only because I know it’s temporary. It doesn’t even seem real.

He hitches up the leg between mine until my toes barely touch the ground. I’m writhing on him, the friction of his jeans rubbing me as we slide in a sensual rhythm. We’re in sync with one another, our movements smooth and fluid, and my body sinks deeper into his, the sensations overwhelming me.

The music’s too loud to hear anything, not even my own breathing. But my heart is beating with such force that I feel it in my toes. I want this to keep going, but as the beat shifts to a new tune, I sense my dancing partner pulling away and I let myself slide to the ground. He holds my elbows, keeping me steady until I’m balanced and standing on my own two feet.

We hold each other’s gaze for a few beats until he flashes that same smile that started all this. He leans down, and I think he’s about to kiss me but his hand grazes the top of my dress, and I feel his finger drop inside. He’s placed a piece of paper between my breasts. Okay, that was not what I was expecting.

“That’s my number.” His lips brush my ear as he says it, making sure I hear him over the music. “You should call me. I’m free tomorrow night.”

I’m practically panting, but he turns and walks away. My eyes follow the path of his departure, lingering on his butt, branding it to memory, as my legs struggle to keep me upright. I feel bereft from his absence, and he was only with me for one song. His presence succeeded in turning me boneless, melting into a puddle on the dance floor, while I wonder, what the hell just happened?

Review Post: The One Night Stand (Players #3) by Elizabeth Hayley

 

The One Night Stand by Elizabeth Hayley

Releasing 12/12/17

Gabriel Torres thought his life after Major League Baseball would be simple and quiet, or at least quieter. However, as he takes over running the exclusive Players Club, he finds himself continually embroiled in scandal and drama. Surely nothing, and no one could make his life any crazier…Right?

Rachel Adler is a blast from Gabe’s past who crashed back into his life with the finesse of a freight train. But she’s a welcome distraction. At least for a night.

Rachel has been working hard to become one of the top sports journalists in the country. She doesn’t have time for a long-term romance or irresistibly charming baseball players. A one-night-stand with the man who she knew would hit it out of the park was all she wanted.

But when she gets a tip that Gabe could have ties to one of the biggest sports stories in history, a story that could make her career, Rachel decides that maybe she has a little time for the sexy baseball player after all. As she gets in deeper with both her story and Gabe, Rachel begins to question who she is, what she wants, and what exactly she’s willing to sacrifice for her career.

Will the potential grand-slam romance be stopped short or will Rachel and Gabe be able to go the distance?

*****5 Fantastic Stars*****

I have loved and enjoyed all of Elizabeth Hayley’s Players novels so much. These books are the perfect sports romance. They’re funny as all get out, filled to the brim with distinctive and memorable characters, and they have each given me love stories that packed the perfect amount of heat and fun and feels. Elizabeth Hayley has delivered it all once again in the third installment of this series. They have once again created a story that was so easy to get swept into and that gave me it all.

The One Night stand is all about what happens when a blast from the past soon become more than either of these two characters bargained for.

This book follows Rachel and Gabe as they explore what they’re feeling for one another, as they try to figure out what in the world that means for them and their future, and as they try to figure out if the lies and secrets they keep to themselves are too much and too complicated. This book is full of moments that will make you laugh out loud, so many moments that will make you blush, and so many moments that will give you the best kind of glimpses at what these characters share and what could be.

Every word of this story made me fall even more in love with this series and the characters in it. Elizabeth Hayley brought this series to a close on the best note that had me knowing and feeling through every word and page why I loved it so much in the first place.

Equal parts sports romance, love story, laughs, feels, and humor and vibrancy, The One Night Stand delivers it all. It gives you Gabe and Rachel in the most authentic way that will pull you to them both, and in the end it delivers a story that will take ahold of you in the best way through every word. This book will make you laugh, it’ll make you smile, it’ll make you feel, and it’ll make you fall right along with Rachel and Gabe, and it just doesn’t get better than that.

What I loved about The One Night Stand:

  • Gabe’s humor and personality. Gabe has been a character that has been making me laugh at his humor and antics since the very start of this series. I was so beyond to finally get his story and to get into his head, and I was not disappointed one little bit in what I got with him. That man made me laugh, he made me fall something fierce, and I loved how he had this effervescent personality that I could not get enough of. He was the life of the party, but also a down to earth guy who just wanted to do something that made him happy. I loved that this book not only gave me the fun and vibrancy I’ve come to know and love about him, but also gave me a chance to see what was behind that humor. I saw the more serious Gabe, the one who had feelings and questions and worries, and that just pulled my heart to him even more. Suffice to say, getting his story was all I needed and it just made reading this book even more phenomenal.
  • Rachel’s journey to find herself. I absolutely loved Rachel’s character. I loved how real she was, I loved how she balanced out with Gabe so well, and I loved that this story really pushed her a bit. It pushed her to decide what she really wanted and who she wanted to be. It pushed her to admit what she was really feeling for Gabe, and it pushed her to decide what she was willing to fight for and to realize what she might need to let go of. Rachel was such an authentic character that I immediately liked and felt for. I felt so connected to her through every part of this story, and I loved getting to be with her as she tried to figure out what in the world she was going to do with her story, with her feelings for Gabe, and what that all meant. Elizabeth Hayley made her such a real and enjoyable character to get to know and understand, and that was just another thing that made this story so fantastic.
  • What starts as a fun that soon becomes so much more. Rachel and Gabe’s story starts with a blast from the past that leads to a one night stand that soon leads to something more than either of them were prepared for. Both of them had no idea that when they reconnected it would ignite a firestorm of feelings in them, and neither of them were prepared for how it would give them everything they never knew they needed, while also complicating everything. They both have secrets, they’re both holding back a part of themselves and trying to figure out how to handle everything that goes with what they’re hiding. Both Rachel and Gabe struggle through this book on what to do and what that might mean for the future they’re starting to build. Elizabeth Hayley perfectly captures and creates that dynamic and brings it to their story in a way that will have you engrossed in every word ready to see how it will all work out for them
  • The perfect amount of heat and humor and fun and seriousness. Elizabeth Hayley knows how to write some serious humor and some serious heat. The way that they write and craft their stories and characters never fails to have me laughing my butt off, while also giving me the best amount of feels to tug at my heart, all while creating a fire and connection that has me feeling it all with these characters. They always find the perfect balance of being playful and serious, humorous and serious, while throwing in that charm and vibrancy and fire to bring it all together in the most memorable way. Getting to experience that in The One Night Stand was fantastic. That was just part of what made this book so phenomenal, and what made it such an incredible read. Elizabeth Hayley’s writing and storytelling in this book checked off all the boxes and just made for a darn good book!
  • The best group of friends. I have said it before about this series and I will say it again, the distinctive and dynamic characters of these books make this series what it is. I loved getting back into that dynamic. I loved how it felt darn good to be back with all of these characters and I loved how Elizabeth Hayley let me catch up with the gang once again. Jace, Ben, and Gabe and their special lady friends made this series the fantastic thing that it is, and getting one last book with them all was everything I needed. It was fun, it was real, and it was them. Those three men gave me a story and series that was fun, charming, and full of life. And their three lady friends just made it even better to watch them all fall once more. The Player Series was just the best, and getting back with these memorable characters was the icing on top of a fantastic book and reading experience.

The One Night Stand was a book that blended sports, romance, humor, and the possibilities that can happen when you meet that one person who changes everything. This book was phenomenally written and gave me two characters who were memorable in every way. I loved getting to be a part of their story, getting to see they fall and feel what they did, and getting to experience what happened between them. Elizabeth Hayley once again crafted a story that was enjoyable in every way. This book was the perfect conclusion to this series and just had me loving everything I was reading.

Elizabeth Hayley continues to be a writing duo who gives me it all. They create such memorable characters and stories. They make me laugh with their humor they so authentically create. They allowed me to feel it all with their outstanding characters, and in the end they gave me a story that I just loved.

This book was an all around phenomenal read and I can’t say that enough. It was well written, it was consuming through every word, and it was everything I needed right now. It was a satisfying in every way, and I loved getting Rachel and Gabe’s story. I promise that those two will make you smile and laugh and feel it all, and you will love it!

Elizabeth Hayley is actually “Elizabeth” and “Hayley,” two friends who love reading romance novels to obsessive levels. This mutual love prompted them to put their English degrees to good use by penning their own. The product is Pieces of Perfect, their debut novel. They learned a ton about one another through the process, like how they clearly share a brain and have a persistent need to text each other constantly (much to their husbands’ chagrin).

They live with their husbands and kids in a Philadelphia suburb. Thankfully, their children are still too young to read.

Elizabeth Hayley’s writing motto is best captured by the words of Patrick Dennis: “I always start with a clean piece of paper and a dirty mind.”

Releasing Now: The Proposition (Players #2) by Elizabeth Hayley

 

Professional hockey player Ben Williamson doesn’t quite know how he got himself into this situation; hiring someone to be his date to his brother’s wedding is way out of character for him. But with family pressuring him to settle down, going stag just isn’t an option. It would just be one more thing his polite, cultured family uses as ammo against him.

Ryan Cruz is having a bad day. Wait, make that a bad year. Broke, technically homeless, and living on a friend’s couch, she’s now also unemployed after her sharp tongue gets her fired from her job. So when a handsome stranger approaches her out of the blue with a proposition–he’ll pay her to be his date to his brother’s wedding for the weekend–accepting his offer is a no brainer. She needs the cash and figures it wouldn’t be in the best interest of a professional athlete to murder her.

What starts as a simple business arrangement soon becomes more as these opposites attract and get caught up in the wedding magic. Will Ben and Ryan be able to turn their relationship into something more? Or is love based on a proposition too much of an obstacle to overcome?

~Excerpt~

Ryan heard a “Ben, go after her” from behind her as she hurried toward the door. She thought his mother had said it, but she couldn’t be sure. Her ears were too busy ringing with the force she was exerting to hold back her tears.

She’d made it to the driveway before she heard Ben call her name. She ignored him as she made her way to the rental car.

He caught up to her right as she reached it. “Ryan,” he breathed.

She turned toward him and held out her hand. “Keys.”

“What?” he asked, looking flustered.

“Give me the keys, Ben.”

“No, let me . . . let me take you back. We can talk and—”

“I have nothing to say to you. And I’m sure as hell not getting in a car with you.”

“Ryan, please let me explain.”

“You have. I got the message pretty clearly inside. Seems like everyone else did too. It was quite a show.”

Ben ran a hand over his head. “I didn’t mean to say that. It just came out. I was angry, and—”

“Jesus Christ, Ben! Stop. You’re not an eighteen-year-old kid anymore. You can’t use your anger as an excuse for saying shitty things. Besides, it’s not like you didn’t say anything that wasn’t true.” Ryan shrugged. “They know the truth about me, and I know where I stand with you. It was for the best.”

“That’s not . . . that’s not where you stand with me. You’re more than that.”

Ryan laughed humorlessly. “No, I’m not. I’m not even that actually. All I am is an out-of-work waitress who was desperate enough to let some guy think she was an escort.”

The startled look on Ben’s face would’ve been comical if it wasn’t for the fact that Ryan was pretty sure she’d never laugh for real ever again. “Wait, you’re not an escort?”

“Well, I mean, I guess I am now. Thanks for that resume builder, by the way. But before I met you? No. I was just some girl trying to figure out how she was going to make ends meet after I quit waitressing at a crappy strip club. And then you barged into my life and offered me a better alternative. So I took it.” Ryan had managed to keep her emotions in check, but time was running out on that. “But now it’s over. So give me the keys.”

After a moment’s hesitation, Ben pulled the keys out of his pocket, but he toyed with them instead of handing them over. “I don’t want it to be over,” he said softly.

“Well, it really doesn’t matter what you want. There’s no coming back from that. We both know it.”

“I don’t know that.”

She sighed. “Then I guess you never really knew me at all.”

It’s a Cover Reveal: The One Night Stand by Elizabeth Hayley

 

 

 

Gabriel Torres thought his life after Major League Baseball would be simple and quiet, or at least quieter. However, as he takes over running the exclusive Players Club, he finds himself continually embroiled in scandal and drama. Surely nothing, and no one could make his life any crazier…Right?

Rachel Adler is a blast from Gabe’s past who crashed back into his life with the finesse of a freight train. But she’s a welcome distraction. At least for a night.

Rachel has been working hard to become one of the top sports journalists in the country. She doesn’t have time for a long-term romance or irresistibly charming baseball players. A one-night-stand with the man who she knew would hit it out of the park was all she wanted.

But when she gets a tip that Gabe could have ties to one of the biggest sports stories in history, a story that could make her career, Rachel decides that maybe she has a little time for the sexy baseball player after all. As she gets in deeper with both her story and Gabe, Rachel begins to question who she is, what she wants, and what exactly she’s willing to sacrifice for her career.

Will the potential grand-slam romance be stopped short or will Rachel and Gabe be able to go the distance?

Synopsis2

 

He’s Paxton Wilder.

Twenty-two-year-old, tattooed, smoking-hot leader of the Renegades.

Five time X Games medalist.

The world is his playground—especially this year—and for the next nine months I’m stuck as his tutor on the Study at Sea program.

He’s too busy staging worldwide stunts for his documentary to get to class.

But if I can’t get him to take academics seriously, I’ll lose my scholarship…if I don’t lose my heart first.

Six unlikely friends on a nine-month cruise with the Study at Sea program will learn that chemistry is more than a subject and the best lessons aren’t taught in the classroom…but in the heart.
